So recently and I mean very recently my face ran full force into a God built brick wall. Why because I was not strong enough and didn’t make the choice to be so.
Now I sit here on the floor looking around at the damaged that I caused because of that wall that He so perfectly placed in my path. It’s amazing how with blinders of the flesh on we don’t want want to see what our choices are going to cause.
Now I’m sure you are wondering why God put a wall up? Well to be honest it was because I wasn’t living like I was suppose to be. When I was home or at church I made at pretty good show that I was but thankfully we can’t hide things from God. I was living at a two face christian…. acting one way at home and church than another way at work.
I can say that we don’t see what’s happening but inside we all know all and that’s why I say we chose not to see it. But as I sit here God showed me this….
“Before I formed you in the womb I knew you, before you were born I set you apart; I appointed you as a prophet to the nations.”
Jeremiah 1:5 NIV
So know all I can do is be thankful that He didn’t allow me to continue down the oath of my choices but to bring me back to him.
I want to share this with everyone to remind them how important our time with God is. Don’t be like me… never stop reading saying your tired or don’t have the time. Make the time and read when your not tired. Don’t say you can’t pray right now because right now is the time to be praying. The armor that God gives us will never work if we don’t keep our face buried Him by reading His word, talking to Him and never stop hitting our knees.
He is making it very clear that He is VERY jealous God and wants us close to Him at all times during our life.
For all who are allowing themselves to be led by the Spirit of God are sons of God. For you have not received a spirit of slavery leading again to fear [of God’s judgment], but you have received the Spirit of adoption as sons [the Spirit producing sonship] by which we [joyfully] cry, “ Abba! Father!”
ROMANS 8:14-15 AMP
So please be encouraged by my faults and failures to not go through it and if you have or are currently going through a hard time. Always remember to hit your knees if at the least daily and talk to your father. Let Him keep you strong in your faith and live a Godly life as we are called to be. Let’s forever never stop pursuing a relentless love for Christ. I pray this has helped….. And may God bless you on your journey.
