Life is not easy. As a matter of fact, Jesus tells us that in this life we will have tribulations but to take heart for He has overcome this world (John 16:33). What does that mean to us? It means that life is going to deal us some hard blows but if we believe in Christ, He can and will see you through them. I honestly don’t know how people make it through without Jesus. I look at my life now with total gratitude for the God who loved me enough to come after me and help me. I thought I had it going on, but I didn’t.
I look at humans. We all have something that is going on in our lives. It is my job to let you know that you don’t have to stay where you are. You can come out of any problem you face today but it will be up to you to do it.
Satan is rising in his efforts to stop God’s children and a lot of us are letting him defeat us. No matter what or where the defeat is…God is bigger than your problem. We need to start making God the bigger thing in our lives instead of making the problems the biggest thing. We act like God isn’t God.
Jesus tells us that ‘if you believe, you shall receive’ (Mark 11:24). We don’t act like that scripture is true. One thing, one big thing I have learned is to stop hitting people over the head with Jesus. People are hurting and they need help. People need answers. God knows this but YOU are going to have to buck up and go get it.
MC Hammer had a song and in it he said, “I got to pray just to make it today.” We don’t give prayer enough attention. We certainly give TV enough attention. We want to act like, be like, and look like others but the bottom line is that we are all unique. God doesn’t need us acting like one another. He needs YOU to be YOU. But many of us don’t even know who we are. We are so tangled up in life and the devil has done his best to keep us from God’s best. But the tide is changing…..and it is changing NOW. NOW is the time for you. Now is the time for you to get it.
Being preached at is good (I love a good preach) but at the end of the day if you don’t know how to walk with Christ to get the victory in your life, then what good was it? If you are not being taught “how to flesh Jesus out” in your everyday life, what was the point?
I owe God. I need to try to fulfill my destiny here on this earth. When I kneel before the Lord, I don’t want to come up empty handed, do you? I can just picture Him looking down at me as I kneel before Him saying to me, “Molly, why didn’t you pray and let me tell you what to do? Molly, why did you care what everybody else thought about what you were doing? Why weren’t you just obedient?”
Do you know what YOUR purpose is here? Do you know what to even do? It is time to find out.
If you will, just pray and it doesn’t have to be something big and mighty….just ask God to help show you what to do with your life and your time. Ask Him what your purpose is, then get up, shut up and be quiet and listen. If two or more people are telling you the same thing, then listen, 'cause God is trying to tell you something.
The hour is late and a lot of God’s children are lost…..are you?
I owe Him more than you can possibly ever imagine…..what about you?
Are you holding an I.O.U.?
