Lots of people can do things and lots do them well. Being able to do something, even exceptionally well still doesn’t mean God called you to do it. So that ends with you spinning your wheels so to speak and running around the same mountains over and over again. However when you get yourself aligned with His purpose and plans for your life? No weapon formed against you shall prosper and no devil in hell can stop you. MANY are called, FEW are chosen. We are chosen by the way we respond to the call. “For many are called, but few are chosen.” Matthew 22:14 NKJV
I had to share this with you… some of you may have read a previous article I wrote on September 21st of last year “Blessed to be a blessing” https://queentheprophet.com/2015/09/21/blessed-to-be-a-blessing/ via @Queentheprophet
I had a flat tire, and the man who came to change the tire began to tell me a friend of his recently lost his wife and was now diagnosed with cancer. I told the man I would pray for his friend and closed the article asking all of you to do the same.
So this evening, I was out with a client a few towns over and actually pretty excited because it was my second to last visit with this client. I had put in my resignation earlier today because God has tremendously blessed my own business so that I no longer have a need for extra clients during the week. As we were trying to leave an event, I heard the infamous flat tire noise. Wasn’t a huge deal, we were safe, still in the parking lot and I have road side assistance. Believe me, I’ve learned not to get annoyed with small setbacks because I have lived through worse. So when roadside assistance arrives, as the man began to speak I realized I knew him. I asked him if he had changed my tire about a year ago in my driveway and told me his friend was sick. He looked at me and smiled and said, “how long ago was this?” I said, “I don’t know, 6 months or more.” He smiled and informed me that his friend no longer had cancer and received a clean bill of health from his doctor recently and then he hugged me.
I’m not sure if I am in more awe of God in His awesomeness as a healer or how he set me up almost a year later, and allowed me to have a flat tire and cross paths with the same man just so that I could hear with my own ears that God had heard and answered. So to all of you that prayed? You were heard & God is still in the miracle working business.
Hebrews 2:4 God also bearing witness both with signs and wonders, with various miracles, and gifts of the Holy Spirit, according to His own will
Mark 16:17-18 And these signs will follow those who believe: In My name they will cast out demons; they will speak with new tongues; they will take up serpents; and if they drink anything deadly, it will by no means hurt them; they will lay hands on the sick, and they will recover.”
Nowadays everyone’s offended. It’s frowned upon to say anything or do anything that might potentially be offensive to anyone at anytime for any reason, except God of course. Most people are more worried about being politically correct instead of biblically correct.
“No one can serve two masters, for you will love one and hate the other, or you will be devoted to one and despise the other.” (Matthew 6:24)
There is no middle of the road. If you serve God you absolutely will offend man and if you live your life serving man and the opinions of others you absolutely offend God. In fact, He even warns that if you are lukewarm he will spit you out of His mouth (Revelation 3:16).
So this leaves each of us with a personal decision that nobody else can make for us or help us with. If we ignore the choice then the choice is made for us. The time to make that choice shortens each day as none of us know what day will be our last.
“And if it seems evil to you to serve The Lord, choose for yourselves this day in whom you will serve” (Joshua 24:15)
Today it’s #PrayForOakland (although people get shot in Oakland every day like a lot of other places and we only know about it when they tell us). What is unfolding is an agenda and as dumb luck would have it (sarcasm) is also in the bible surprise surprise. Here’s my question tho, (real talk) What God are you praying to? Are you calling upon the Lord of the Universe? The Alpha and Omega? Father, Son, Holy Spirit? I ask this because most people treat Him like a side chick or dude. You call on Him when someone dies and care nothing about His word or His ways until it interrupts your entertainment (TV, news, social media, etc). Then you get right back to being entertained (distracted) until another tragedy happens. These tragedy’s will continue and they will get worse until the NWO is fully manifested. Now if you REALLY want to see God move, and you REALLY want His help? Start repenting, stop compromising with the things that offend Him, and love people. It’s so simple that it becomes difficult.
“If My people who are called by My name will humble themselves, and pray and seek My face, and turn from their wicked ways, then I will hear from heaven, and will forgive their sin and heal their land” 2 Chronicles 7:14 (NKJV)
You can’t always be politically correct and biblically correct. I chose to be biblically correct. Started saying no to things that offend God and started loosing “friends”, started saying no to opportunities that contradict God and started loosing money. Then my soul began to prosper. See but the way the kingdom of God is set up, He ALWAYS gives you double for your trouble & anything you give up for His sake, He returns with interest on your investment. Restoration, transformation.
(Matthew 6:33) It says SEEK FIRST the kingdom of #God and His righteousness AND THEN all else will be added. You can’t skip the first part & expect stuff . Come on man that’s like showing up to the Olympics demanding a metal and you didn’t even play in the games or like me showing up at the phone company on pay day for a check & I don’t even work there . People that do that are the same folks that look at your hand of cards when you go to the bathroom.
Your imagination has the ability to sanitize your memories. The Israelite’s cried out to God to free them from being enslaved to the Egyptians, but when they were in the wilderness (their process) headed towards the promise land they began to complain. Their imagination began to clean up their memories to the point they started saying they were better off back in Egypt forgetting that they were in bondage there. (Exodus 16:3, Numbers 11)Sometimes “the good ol days” or that old place, or person you used to date really wasn’t as great as you’re trying to convince yourself it was just because what’s in front of you is difficult.
The book of Genesis (2:7) tells us that God breathed the breath of life into Adam and he became a living being. The original Hebrew word for breath is “ruach” which also means Spirit. We are living beings because the Spirit of God is inside of us every time we inhale and exhale. So the next time you don’t feel like you have anything to be thankful for and you’re sitting in your right mind? Inhale “THANK” and exhale “YOU”.
