Keep Serving the Filet Mignon!
But why do you want to eat and drink and be served in a five star restaurant, but go sow and work in a fast food place?
People will come to your ministry and receive, grow and prosper, wear you out praying for them, imparting wisdom and knowledge into them, then go somewhere else and sow and serve, because they say they have a larger congregation!
Hello? How you go from eating beef to loving horse meat?
Leaders, be encouraged when you have stood as a good leader, and did what you have been ordained to do with persons who don’t appreciate your sacrifice. Remember, God is not unrighteousness to forget your work and labor of love.
They may think they are using you, but in reality they are promoting you, because you are loving your enemies, praying for those who despite fully use you, and doing good to those that hate you. All spiritual acts of elevation!
Don’t sweat it! Some people can’t digest rich nutritious food. Keep cooking those full course meal while the older generation is loving fast food.
The younger generation is learning how to appreciate a healthy diet that includes everything they need to maintain a healthy spiritual life. I’m praying for the leaders who are giving their all, without any pride, greed or thoughts about themselves.
Giving of yourself, your time and your spiritual gifting into the lives of those who disrespect and dishonor you, can be discouraging.
Don’t let it get you down. Stay strong and focused and remember you only there to teach train impart activate birth and push them out into their destiny.
It’s their lost if they don’t appreciate who God has brought into their life for their destiny purpose mission! Keep serving filet mignon, as God weans out those that have a taste for rat meat.
Receiving a Word from The LORD
I have noticed that people tend to get overly excited and have much to say when a word is released about fame and fortune. But the minute you release a word that deals with character, attitude, motives, lifestyles, they immediately either call you judgmental or self righteous.
They will pull the, “you are not walking in love,” line or they block or unfriend you on social media because you said something that convicted them, or made them look in the mirror at themselves.
People in this hour, don’t want to hear the truth about themselves. They want you to look over their bad behavior and their unholy acts and just speak blessings into their lives.
They are offended at the truth and will rise up and question your calling and anointing, when something is said that shows they are living a lifestyle displeasing to God.
So many are being led astray and farther from God because they don’t want truth, but blessing lies.
For some reason, they truly believe that they don’t have to change from their old lifestyles, but can continue to live in willful sin and that it’s alright with God.
People have a tendency to fight against the sacrifice of change because they rather stay in a familiar place of comfort enjoying what they have always done. Change requires some painful choices, because it causes you to adjust your life beyond the habits and patterns we have grown accustom to.
The process of alignment is scary to those that are fearful of letting go and thinking beyond the set patterns they have establish in their life. Change requires new thinking a different mindset a new outlook.
Change also requires letting go of some people and acquiring new friends and connections. Change also causes you to stand bold in your new convictions dreams desires.
Shifting into a different lifestyle will draw criticism verbal attacks and persecution from those that we have to now move away from. All these things are necessary and will happen when you shift from the old man to the new man.
Yes, preaching truth and reminding the people that they have to be holy and righteous may not be popular, but it’s necessary in order for the people to know and understand that God has set standards for us to walk in to be pleasing to Him.
So even if you are talked about boycotted or shunned preach the truth because at the end of it all is two statements either depart from me you worker of iniquity, or well done my good and faithful servant.
What you hear, depends on what you do and how you live as a child of God!
