sometimes, in order to move forward...powerfully...one must stop and... rewind.
said differently...in order to better know in which direction to next go, once must consider where they have been---their history. where their people have been. in the bigger picture this principle also holds true i believe.
i was pricked in the spirit recently. a soft nudge and caution to rewind. time found me a bit stuck, for lack of a better word, as i obeyed. it is one of the pitfalls of rewinding through history. in the big picture, it is tempting for me to get stuck with the angry screw face. lol. injustice gets under my skin. grrr. ALL praises due to Almighty that He also saw fit to remind me that i am called to His Purpose and that it was time to move forward...powerfully. my heart is full of His praise. only He is worthy of such praise, truly.
introspection and reflection allows me to better extract the valuable lessons that have been amassed along the way. long has my prayer been for Wisdom. i feel the beginnings of this great blessing. on some level...i have always known He was real. through the years He has revealed Himself to me in mighty ways. my rebellious nature has been broken. i no longer feel rebellious toward Him. i am eternally grateful that He broke the rebellion and not my neck...and prayerful that i don't fall as i work out my salvation with fear and trembling. He mercifully did not break my neck...but i gotta testify that He definitely can tap you to get your attention when one's head is hard;) despite reflecting...i am still unclear as to why i felt compelled to run away from Him when He first called? what was that about? whatever that mystery was about, i can tell you for sure i am thankful for His Grace and Mercy...
daily, i remind myself that Obedience to His Word is worth more than sacrifice. this keeps me in check. it is my sincere prayer that all that have occasion to read these words will take a few moments and ask Almighty Yahweh Himself to pray for them that they may commit their lives in Obedience to Him.
truly we receive not because we ask not. it is time to house clean. if we pay attention...Obey is a prominently featured message. here's the thing...one will truly only obey Him or one other. when one bottom lines matters...that is the bottom line. it does not really matter all of the special deeeep ways one has for maintaining their deception. those that love lies will have no shortage of them to choose from. some have even layered lies upon layer and layer of more lies. they have done so for so long that it is now their heartfelt truth. as it is written: 2 Thessalonians 2:11-12. i feel most saddened for those that must combat a lifetime of digesting a steady diet of lies.
done with my rewind. committed fully to moving forward powerfully...may you be in your life as well.
