Leave Those Sticks Alone!
Too often as the people of God, we resurrect emotions and issues that are suppose to be dead in our lives.
We nurse our hurts and pains because we have allowed them to become a part of our personality and character.
Situations that have happened in life, have altered our true identities and now something that was not a part of God’s original plan for our personality, is now embedded in our emotional makeup.
You were not suppose to let what happen to you become a part of your identity!
The LORD comes into our lives and delivers us and set us free but the minute something takes place we go back and collect those sticks and identify ourselves once again with those things.
We go back and pick up our pain, and doom our lives, and announce our own spiritual death by pronouncing, “I can’t function, I can’t be happy, I can’t forget the hurt, I can’t forget what they done.”
We continually collect those sticks of our past when we want to justify the angry bitter mean and distrustful person we have become.
Somebody today needs to stop collecting sticks that are full of spiritual death and declare, “I’m going to LIVE!”
Greater Obedience and Submission to Him!
I have been on a quest for eight weeks now, moving quietly into a greater position of obedience and submission to ABBA!
The new me has emerged! Sometimes He has to seclude us without people knowing we are in a cocoon of transformation.
He will put us in isolation and shut us down from people, so that we can properly prepare for the greater He is about to release us into.
There are times, even those who say they know us, won’t even know us in this place of purification cleansing and washing.
When ABBA demands a greater consecration from us, and a greater surrendering, we know He is up to something.
When He demands more out of us as an example, and then puts a mandate upon us that requires no nonsense, zero tolerance for foolishness, and tells us that we must cry out against sin at all costs, and that not obeying Him will cost us much, then we know that we can’t afford to make mistakes, be compromising, or let down our standards of righteousness or holiness!
When He says they will be so angry at what we must now say and release, that they will want to hurt us, but know He’s got us, then we know that we can’t play games with anybody.
This hour calls for sincere, bold, won’t-be-taken-down vessels, that have been purified from every contamination of the flesh and carnality of mind.
The true warriors are coming forth and they are swinging a heavy sword of salvation, deliverance and healing.
They are conquering territories for ABBA’s Kingdom and snatching souls out of the hand of Satan.
The are advancing as a group and going forth in unity. Yes, they are crying loud in this hour and they are not ashamed to declare the Word of The LORD!
Today I heard, “Let the lions roar, for its time to release the sound of triumph!”
We are emerging, coming out, and we are not afraid of man and what he thinks he can do to us!
Hear the sound of the lions as they release the Word of YAHWEH in this hour!
