When I read titles like “Chief Executive”, “Founder and President”, “Senior Apostle” … and the likes, it’s a green light for me to go!
To go in the opposite direction as fast as I can and as far as I can.
These things are oozing from a heart overflowing with pride.
God has no executives. He has brothers and sisters walking in His Love and loving on each other, who find great pleasure in serving another without feeling like servants in doing so.
If you are a true lover of God, get out under the misuse and manipulation of men. You are worth so much more to your Father!
When you become important in your own eyes, you begin speaking down to others and you begin seeing yourself as someone that is of a higher standing than them.
When you begin asserting yourself above others, remember that Jesus bowed down to those whom He lovingly restored.
Love is a condition of the heart that is manifested through our words, actions, behaviour and hands.
It does not begin in what we do, it begins within our inner-man that bears fruit in all we are.
Never live your life one-dimensionally.
Your life is line upon line, measure upon measure, season upon season, miracle upon miracle.
Never settle in any one season. Keep transitioning. Keep metamorphosing.
Your destiny is eager to unfold — be the good ground that the Seed in you needs to germinate.
Positions of Agreement
Never find yourself in a position where you agree with anyone on anything, before The Holy Spirit does not witness what they bring to you, in you.
On the other hand — be quick to leap out of the boat, casting off all fear, all opinions and all restraints, when you see and hear Jesus calling you out on the water.
Who is Your Spiritual Family?
Who is your spiritual family?
Every human being that was given life by God!
Whether Muslim, Hindu, Buddhist, Christian, even those lost in the cauldron of the dark occult.
Whether from the jungles in Africa, the multitude of religions in the East to the sophisticated cities of the West.
Whether blue, black, white, yellow, brown or orange.
The key word is LOST.
God created mankind and is interested in restoring His children from every tribe and tongue.
Fellows from your religious tribe is not your spiritual family, every living human being comes from the same Source of Origin, which is God Himself, that is why Jesus died for the whole world to be reconciled in Him.
There is no “us” and them.
There are only lost brothers and sisters, desperate to connect with God.
Let us view them and Love them from God’s Heart and perspective.
