Lets agree to trust God – Its ok… really … Its ok.. Mission Impossible

Firstly I just wanna encourage, hug, pep-talk, uplift, exhort, console anyone who’s going through struggles of ANY kind at the moment.

Seems like there are quite a few. Clealy something amazing is happening to us this year, because not only are we really getting serious about God but we’re also going through a lot and we’re talking to each other about it! That says 3 things to me. 1 – God is testing us and our faith is being put through the fire. 2 – the devil’s a little ticked off cause he’s losing his grip on us 3 – we’re letting go of our pride and self-righteousness cause we’re vulnerable or courageous enough to admit to each other and in public when we’re not doing too good even when we see some people on a high or maybe last week we were great!

I want you to know, whoever you are, that its ok to not be ok. Its ok to be down or vulnerable or sick at heart or broken-hearted or disappointed with yourself at times. Its ok to be weak and its ok to realise you failed and you’re just not getting it right. I am by no means condoning sin. I’m trying to get you to stop beating yourself over the head. If God thought you could get it right on your own or that it was your “responsibility” to get it right, He wouldn’t have sent His Son who in turn wouldn’t have freely poured out the Holy Spirit for mahala! Free means you don’t and can never earn it. Its free. You just get it. That’s the love of God. That’s the gospel. You can’t take credit when you get it right yeah? That’s an easy one so to speak. Here’s another. You can’t take responsibility when you get God-stuff wrong. Lemme interpret that before peoples backs get up. I mean you can’t expect yourself (who didn’t save yourself or get it right to begin with) to be able to pick yourself up when you’re down. That’s when God does the whole Tom Cruise (pour guy, no oscar yet eish, life sucks ne?) Mission Impossible XXIIVIIUCCSS (you getting the picture, that its a rescue mission for the umpteenth time in your life?! Lol. Let it sink one day yeah? Shap).

You’re either crazy and out of your mind (spirit) or maybe something sublime has happened. That you’ve proved Jesus right. That one day, the most blessed generation of all will come. They will believe in Me whom they have never seen heard nor touched. The will worship me with the song of Moses and the Lamb. They will constantly look with their hearts toward the clouds of Orion for My soon coming even though in human years I have “tarried”. They will believe that their life is in Mine. That we are one. Merged. That they breathe because of Me. That their heart rhythm pumps in synch with Mine. That their thought patterns flow with Mine. Carried with Mine. They will walk covered by My righteousness, escorted by My angels whom I will send to them everyday. That I assign them angels by their bedside, for their travelling back and forth, and even in their darkest hour they arent alone.  Their hearts, whether in sorrow (repentance) or in joy, will repeatedly and miraculously, against all odds, despite all circumstances, when the going gets the most tough, their SHALL cry out for Me? Whom they crucified when I was among them in the flesh! They will call death rest. They will call suffering rubbish! They will count trials as joy! They will call earthly things straw wood and clay. But spiritual things Gold Silver and Bronze! They will worship me.

These people, whom I have created, must be MAD! 🙂 They must be crazy. They must be My children. The only way they’re doing this is because their walking around with My Life in them. These are my kings and queens of an eagerly awaiting universe. The heavens and the earth can’t wait for them to get their hands on My creation to see what a people like this can do, when they set their gospel-driven minds to it. Adam was interrupted in subduing the earth and commanding the galaxies. The marvels He created, in a thousand years, fallen as he was, wont compare to their eternal dreamings made real! What was once myth and legend, these will outshine and outdo. They will paint, sing, carve, create, draw, plant, harvest, order, setup, build and fashion sun moon and stars. These ones! Yes these will conquer space and time and will write their signature of the cross across the skies for eternity. And yet, despite all this power and majesty, they will not esteem themselves, but toss their hearts and their crowns willingly, joyoulsy at my feet. And,I Elohim, who am God, will sit back and be amazed, at what I have done in them and I will say one more time…. It is “very good”. An that pronouncement. That truth… Will reverberate forever and ever.

See we’ve got to agree that God gets the glory not just when we’re good. But He gets the chance to get the glory when we need to saved. When we’re down and need to be rescued. Restored. Renewed. God needs to get the chance to give us a second chance. That the glory He’s most interested in. When we can let Him be God in the good and especially the bad. Raise your hand if you need a pickme up?

And He said to me, “My grace is sufficient for you, for My strength is made perfect in weakness.” Therefore most gladly I will rather boast in my infirmities, that the power of Christ may rest upon me.

No temptation has overtaken you except such as is common to man; but God is faithful, who will not allow you to be tempted beyond what you are able, but with the temptation will also make the way of escape, that you may be able to bear it.

[all you have to remember is keep it real with Him, then look Him straight in the face, don’t hide don’t lie, don’t try to be strong, nothing, just look at Him and then before youre done bowing you’ll be changed. Before youre done singing, you’re heart is different. Just KEEP IT REAL! He’s not asking for much huh?! The rest is all on Him. Its called gospel. Yeah…like a broken record]
But we all, with unveiled face, beholding as in a mirror the glory of the Lord, are being transformed into the same image from glory to glory, just as by the Spirit of the Lord.

Please please please let us agree on that one thing. That God is looking for worshippers. Because it is when we worship God that we become changed, then empowered, then obedient, then glorified. When He looks at you right now, believer that you are, no matter what you’ve done or will do, as long as Jesus is your Saviour, He looks at you and says “very good”. He respects you’re awesome capability knowing that you are capable of building a tower to heaven. You, though human, are capable of conversing with God in the spirit. Your mind is capable of discussion with God and testing that God is good even though you’re not perfect at it. In fact we’re bad at it! And angels when they see you marvel. They see heirs. Or like David puts it. They see little gods. Pieces and types of, in wonderous varieties, of the Most High. All of creation looks at you sees the image of the Most High. And this is, I repeat, regardless of what you did, are doing or will do. Only one pre-requisite. That you believe in Christ and Him crucified for you. Stop being hard on yourself and start blessing God’s name. Stop look down on your capability and believe the Bible, remembering that you are the “EXPRESS” image of a Word-speaking, creation-obeying, star-breathing, death-defying, water-walking, flower-sculpting, tear-shedding, salvation-dancing, relationship-wanting God (Zeph 3 , yes God dances). You look like Him. Like it or not. You think act and talk like Him if you’re a believer (believe it or not lol!). And you will RULE with Him as a king as a queen, as a son as a daughter. Did you buy it? No. Is it on loan? No. Did you qualify. No. Did you do a test and pass? No. Did you earn it? Hallelujah no! We killed Him, He loved us. We rejected Him, He saved us. We misunderstood Him, He wrote a manual a coupla thousand pages long. So how is it, we carry our sins and depression and guilt and failures and doubts, as heavy and unbearable as they are on our bent down tired shoulders every day (dude come to Me is you’re tired and I’ll let you chill. Take my Cross, it aint that hard. It light and easy like a Sunday mornin!)?

Guilt and discouragement is from the evil one who is a deceiver a liar and a murderer. He’s trying to kill you. And he knows it more important to kill your heart than your body. Repentance and salvation though is from God. He’s messing with your signal. Your reception is bad. Reset your dish with worship!

Now I know we’re gonna go through ups and downs throughout our lives. And I know we’re gonna forget who we are and whose we are at times. But I do want you to remember that the Word of God has given you this promise. That true(honest, real, sincere, from the gut, including disappoint in God or not feeling Him sometimes) true worship empowers and speeds up angels, it defies physics, it moves God’s heart, it gives Jesus urgency to answer you, it even strikes down the devil. Worship is not natural in bad situations. Its so not-human (divine) that the bad things run when you should be weeping and gnashing your teeth but you’re singing hymns instead. So remember, to do this very simple simple simple miraculous thing. I’m willing to put my own eternal destiny on the line as a guarantee to its transformational power. You ready? Here we go.

A Tip for Upclimbing When Your Heart is BackSliding

Put in some uplifting Gospel music (start to worship from the heart) and then find a promise of God in the Bible and pray over it (reinforce the truth in your heart). Two simple things. If you’re situation doesn’t change, maybe not your feelings or your mood, but if God doesn’t do something to you or for you (yes worship does something to you), when you have sincere worship when youre supposed to be down, if God doesn’t do something I’m willing to forfeit my name of His “Book of Life”-list. Why? Because my God, my Father, my King, my Saviour, my Jesus, doesn’t know how to ignore worship. Its not in Him. Like the woman with the issue of blood, He’s FORCED almost against His will to respond to impossible faith as recorded time and time again immediately. Yes I said forced. It shoots out of Him. Its gone almost before He realises it. Power gets released! Like iziNyoka who steal electricity! Your faith steals power from God (you know what I mean. Don’t read it straight! Lol!)

Wanna go to the next level? Wanna push God’s limits!

Wanna hear something crazy? Last one… Take breath. Make sure you’re sitting down. An even MADder proposal… keep worshipping even when He’s quiet. In that utter silence. In that place of abandonement we feel we sometimes. Dare God to take His time to answer you. Lol. Let Him delay. Tell Him you’ll worship if though He slays you. Be like Jesus and say to God, even if you forsake me, I’m will still put my soul into Your hands. You can go quiet, You can turn Your back on me, You can show me anger and Your can even refuse to save me at the very moment when its life or death but I will still refuse to give up on You. I will put my soul into Your hands. Only 3 people I know of in the Bible have been able to do it when God was quiet, not answering and seemingly betraying them. The 3 hebrew boys (lets call them one), Job and Jesus. Its rare, its hectic. I stand to be corrected. But Biblically, in these situtations for these 3 sets of people, God was just not there, apparently. Then BOOM! Now they spoke their faith before He did His thing at the end of the story. They risked, they stood fast in face of danger. They gave up their right to even live, but refused to give up their right (yes I said right) to worship God. They looked at it like a right such that when it was being taken away they refused to give it up. In other words, they took ownership of their worship. No one interfered. Circumstances didn’t change it. Threats couldn’t move them and they hung onto it with an unyielding grip even till the point of death.

Let the Holy Spirit have the last word yeah?… Here we go….
