On 09 February 2017 I posted my first Godly inspired blog, what an amazing journey God has taken me on. I want to thank my friend Millinah for helping me to start the process. Part of my testimony for this blog started in 2016 when she asked me to write as a guest author on her blog. My first thought was “oh no, I will never do that, I cannot do that”, and my response to her was “sorry I cannot do it”. But while sitting at my desk at work the Lord said to me, I used Millinah to start a blog because I know you would not do it on your own and I want you to write. I obeyed the voice of God and started writing on her blog, I never thought that I would end up having my own blog, and never thought that I was someone that could encourage, motivate and uplift others.
By obeying the voice of God it has taken me into a deeper relationship with His word, and a Godly understanding of the scriptures. This can only happen when we stay humble and God’s Spirit gives us revelation. All the glory belong to God. Not in my own abilities, but in the power and the anointing of the Holy Spirit. Less of me and more of God.
This journey is ongoing and I am humble by the fact the God would use someone like me to spread the gospel of Jesus Christ in this manner. Our lives should be reflecting God in everything that we do, whether our day is up or down. I just want to encourage you today. We as Christians need to take a stand for Jesus Christ, we cannot afford to walk around in two worlds. Stand your ground for Christ and move forward by not giving territory to the devil. Don’t allow the devil to keep you down, when God has placed a calling or a dream on your life, you are the only one who can delay the process and the outcome.
Proverbs 29:13 says: “The poor and the oppressor have this in common: The Lord gives sight to the eyes of both.”
What is God Saying?
God has given sight to the poor in spirit and to the oppressor (a person or group that oppresses people). To be poor in spirit is to recognize your utter spiritual bankruptcy before God. When the eyes of those who are poor in spirit are set correctly and their focus are on Jesus Christ, the Lord can use them mightily. The oppressor’s eyes are always focused on himself and on controlling others.
Prayer: Lord help us to see things through your eyes and understand the calling that you have placed inside of us in Jesus name. Amen
