There are some things that happen in your life that you rather not share with others, because you can become concerned how people might perceive you. Well radical Christianity walks hand in hand with radical obedience. So the Lord told me to post this that it might help someone.
A little while back I had a fall. I literally tripped over my laptop cord. The next day, I didn’t feel any effects, so I naturally assumed, all was well. The following day, I begin to feel the effects of it, but during the soaking time at church and receiving words of healing spoken from our leadership as we took communion; I could feel the healing virtue of the Lord.
During this time, I begin to over-spiritualize about the fall. What did it mean? Was it backlash and retaliation as a result of prayers over various projects? Did I miss God? The following day, I went to the Doctor. I found out it was a pulled muscle in my back. I refused to take the medication prescribed (I hate being in a state where I am loopy), I prayed over my self, while I spent the next three days working at my church during the youth event. It was glorious!
So what’s the moral of this testimony? The Lord said the most important thing is not that we fall. . . . we can be prayed up, fasting and moving forth in the things of God, and sometimes we can be hit blindsided by circumstances that we can’t explain. The most important thing is what we do after we fall. My testimony is that the God that heals us, loves us, and restores us. The fall is not most important thing, it is a pause. The most important thing is to get back up and keep on going. Don’t let your mind, or others opinions back you into a corner. Religion has a way of doing that. But the Lord is saying, “Get up and keep moving forward.”
Sunday, I had an opportunity to talk to David Norcott while with Kameka Grant-Ellzey and Aaron Ellzey, we discussed the glory of God and how blessed we are and how grateful we have been for everything that has occurred in our lives. We somehow got on the subject of falling but how we had gotten back up by God’s grace. David had just broke a record. Success can not be measured in our falling but by how we are able to get back up no matter what.
“Now to Him who is able to keep you from stumbling, and to make you stand in the presence of His glory blameless with great joy, to the only God our Savior, through Jesus Christ our Lord, be glory, majesty, dominion and authority, before all time and now and forever. Amen,” Jude 1:24-25.
