Sometimes we as true believers in Christ get frustrated with being called to be chosen.
Sometimes I just want to sit down and be like everyone else, but GOD has not called me to be like everyone else.
Sometimes I try to hide who I know I am, who GOD called me to be in him, because I get tired of the suffering.
Sometimes I want to run to Tarshish like Jonah, sometimes I want to run to the desert like Moses, because sometimes I feel like I failed GOD.
But GOD has a way of making all things work out for our good, even the things we think are bad things, like storms, whales, and the lonely alone time in the desert places of our lives!
If GOD called you to be great, then you cannot stay being mediocre or moderate.
If GOD called you to be a leader you cannot stay being a follower, for there comes a time when you have to stop following and start leading.
If you’re trying to do anything besides what GOD has called you to do or be, then you’re going to be uncomfortable and very unhappy
But if you’re doing and being what GOD has called you to be, then you will have joy.
Joy is given to us by GOD, not man, happiness comes from man, for something has to happen for men to be happy.
But the joy of the Lord comes from GOD alone, man didn’t give it to you, and man certainly can’t take it away from you.
(John 16:19-22) JESUS SAYS, Now JESUS knew that they were desirous to ask him, and said unto them, Do you enquire among yourselves of that I said, A little while, and you shall not see me: and again, a little while, and you shall see me?
Verily, verily, I say unto you, That you shall weep and lament, but the world shall rejoice: and you shall be sorrowful, but your sorrow shall be turned into joy.
A woman when she is in travail has sorrow, because her hour is come: but as soon as she is delivered of the child, she remembers no more the anguish, for joy that a man is born into the world.
And you now therefore have sorrow: but I will see you again, and your heart shall rejoice, and your joy no man takes away from you.
A Spiritual Enigma
I awoke this morning repenting from the unknown sins I committed yesterday!
I did not open my mouth or speak in any unknown tongue, for my heart uttered words my mouth could never say!
I thought within myself that I might touch the heart of GOD today!
My spirit spoke to my body, mind, and soul, and said, let us pray!
In my heart I desire to be caught up in paradise to hear unspeakable secrets which is not lawful for a man to utter!
I imagine I would be empowered with GOD’S power from on high, and go back to reveal it to my brothers!
I imagine eternity is a secret truth I knew that has been branded upon my heart!
I imagine carnal knowledge was power with men, the same way spiritual knowledge is power with GOD!
I imagine life to be nothing more than a dress rehearsal, and a shadow of things to come!
I imagine if you live long enough you will know truth for yourself, and see the world come undone!
I imagined words were powerful, and they were like a lifeline which is able to give life or destroy life!
I imagine the simplicity of words spoken from my heart was the fine poetry I write!
I imagined a purpose lived life was motivated by faith, truth, and love!
I imagined I stabbed myself in the heart with a spiritual pen, and every word I wrote was written in my own blood!
Imagine knowledge was power with GOD, and that power was given to men?
Imagine man was entrusted with the power of GOD, but man could not go beyond what he did not understand?
CAN YOU FEEL ME?
