When A Message Applies To or Troubles Anyone, Don’t Take It Up With the Messenger. Take It Up with the Master; God
Had a long talk with my Mom early this morning about things that are troubling me and as she prayed with and for me, I couldn’t help but literally laugh out loud because she spoke things I heard 5am early this morning confirming God is with me.
I told her when the Holy Spirit speaks to me, sometimes it’s hard for others to understand it’s not me speaking but the Holy Spirit is working through me and using me to tell something to someone who may need to hear the message.
God does not make me pick and choose who I send his message to. And it’s never a coincidence who the message will reach or the person who may be touched by it. It’s God’s will that his Word goes forth to touch whoever may receive it. It’s never about me but about the Spirit that works through me.
When she said, “No weapon formed against me shall prosper. I shall live and not die.” I almost cried because Bishop Joseph Walker said the exact things on the prayer call this morning and she didn’t have a clue he said this. That to me is nothing but God because he knew what I needed to hear to confirm his promise. “It didn’t kill me because God kept me.”
I cannot apologize for what I do when I choose to glorify God and follow his lead when I share a message. Nor can I stop doing what he’s called me to do even when at times I tell him I’m not going to. He won’t let me. So I must follow his command and not man’s.
All I can do is hope that someone is inspired by my words and one day come to understand His works as I do, know that his Word is truth, and that it’s never me, but the Holy Spirit that works through me. It’s always about me giving him glory.
I’m just the messenger. And in most cases when the messages applies to or troubles anyone, don’t take it up with messenger. Take it up with the Master; God. I have the righteousness of God. #GodsRighteousnessIsMyTestimony
1 John 2:1-6 “1 My little children, I am writing these things to you so that you may not sin. But if anyone does sin, we have an advocate with the Father, Jesus Christ the righteous. 2 He is the propitiation for our sins, and not for ours only but also for the sins of the whole world. 3 And by this we know that we have come to know him, if we keep his commandments. 4 Whoever says “I know him” but does not keep his commandments is a liar, and the truth is not in him, 5 but whoever keeps his word, in him truly the love of God is perfected. By this we may know that we are in him: 6 whoever says he abides in him ought to walk in the same way in which he walked. (ESV)
