What will the wicked not do to subvert the plan of God? Anything done for the glory of God will always come under attack of the devil.
OOOh! How much time has been wasted by many who have listened to strange voices? Voices of limitations, condemnation, persecution, accusation and all kinds of negative voice! You are unloveable, not good enough, not educated, too educated, not capable, not beautiful, too fat, too thin, too short, too tall, you don’t know the words, not enough understanding of the Scriptures, too young, too old, not married, single, separated, divorced, jobless, not rich enough, and so on!
I heard you, Father! I am just the perfect soul for what God wants to do! Everything about me, soul, spirit, and body is perfect! The circumstances and situation of my life? God said that is part of His plan! What a relief? I have let this hold me back for too long!!! It is time for the doing! You heard right! No limit! I heard God even backs up troublemaker! I will touch on this soon.
The apostles of old were limited in many regards in that they were not educated, struggling in business, and maybe idle like Nathaniel who was found under the Fig tree in John 1:48 “How do you know me?” Nathanael asked. Jesus answered, “I saw you while you were still under the fig tree before Philip called you.”
How do you measure up? What qualifies you to speak, live and act the word of God? Your degrees? I don’t think so! Except for the part that says “if you are thirsty come and drink, without money? Come and buy is a lie!
John 7:37 On the last and greatest day of the festival, Jesus stood and said in a loud voice, “Let anyone who is thirsty come to me and drink. 38 Whoever believes in me, as Scripture has said, rivers of living water will flow from within them.” 39 By this, he meant the Spirit, whom those who believed in him were later to receive. Up to that time the Spirit had not been given since Jesus had not yet been glorified.
Isaiah 55:1 “Come, all you who are thirsty, come to the waters; and you who have no money, come, buy and eat! Come, buy wine and milk without money and without cost.
I have subjected my ears to those limiting voices for so long and too long! They were almost drumming out the still small voice of God in my heart. I had allowed them to discourage me to the point that I restraint from writing down what God is speaking to my ears and heart. I did not want some to think my writings was about them! Can you imagine that? My mouth is open Lord! Please fill it up – Psalm 81:10
When the Lord had instructed that whatever he says to one, he says to all – Mark 13:37! God reveals things to us individually for our use first and for others. If your sermon, writing, words are not first for you, I doubt if you heard from God. God’s words should be a yardstick for you first before you can convincingly deliver it, and it becomes a word for the season for someone else.
Therefore, I repent today! I repent of disobeying the voice of God! I am not going to cherry pick and deliver again. Father, as you speak your transforming words to my heart, let it change me, and help me to deliver such as instructed. Help me not to look at the faces! But stay focused on you, my helper and friend!
Yes, Lord, I heard you! Those I am worried about are actually feasting on the words while I am worried of been misquoted. Please help me to live, write, and take action in love! I am too tough on myself, help me to be gentle so I can be soothing. I guess I am more critical of myself than The Word is of Me!
Thank you, Lord for the victory you have given me in my mind! It just a matter of time before I see myself mounting up with wings as eagles! This is so for you also friends! May you win the war raging in your mind. May all strange voices speaking to you be silenced in Jesus mighty name.
Thank you, Lord, for showing me that I am very good, good enough for what you have entrusted to me. Greater works you promised I would do if I remain in you! Thanks, Daddy Lord, my Father, God, Saviour and Lover! You shield, protect, provide, and support, my husband, my King, be magnified!
Shalom! Shalom! Shalom!
