Embracing God’s Best

“What, then, shall we say in response to these things? If God is for us, who can be against us?” – Romans 8:31 

The fear of missing out—it’s something that plagues us all at one point or another, isn’t it? We look around at the world, at what others are doing, and we wonder if we’re somehow missing out on something better. 

In Daniel Chapter 1, we see a young man faced with a similar dilemma. Daniel, along with his friends, was taken captive to Babylon, where he was given a new name and expected to conform to the culture of the king. But Daniel understood something crucial: obedience to God is never missing out; it’s positioning yourself to receive His very best. 

The enemy loves to relabel God’s children, just as he did with Daniel. He tries to convince us that we are something other than who God created us to be. But Daniel didn’t succumb to those lies. Despite the pressure to conform, he remained faithful to God, trusting in His plan and His promises. 

How often do we let the fear of missing out dictate our decisions? We chase after worldly success, approval, and pleasure, all the while forgetting that true fulfillment comes from obedience to God. 

The devil whispers lies into our ears, telling us that we’ll never measure up, that we’ll never be good enough for God’s love and acceptance. But the truth is, God has already chosen us, redeemed us, and set us free from the bondage of sin and death. 

When we choose to follow God, we’re not missing out on anything; we’re gaining everything. We’re positioning ourselves to receive His blessings, His guidance, and His provision. And even when the world tries to pull us in different directions, we can trust that God’s plan for us is far greater than anything we could ever imagine. 

Let go of the fear of missing out. Embrace obedience to God, knowing that He is for us, and if God is for us, who can be against us? When we walk in obedience, we’re never missing out; we’re stepping into the abundant life that God has promised us.
