If My Words Could Speak

the musings of a peculiar poet….

I felt led to share this….

I am not writing from a place where I have achieved some religious realization nor do I place myself in a position where I am the end all be all. Ninety-nine percent of what I am writing from comes from my own personal experience, or development and even in that just because a person “gets it” doesn’t mean they don’t struggling in that revelation.

We are all responsible for what the Lord reveals to us and this is the struggle: That once you know what is required you have the responsibility to adhere to or come up to that standard & Oh! What a struggle.

Luke 12:47-48

47 And that servant who knew his master’s will, and did not prepare himself or do according to his will, shall be beaten with many stripes. 48 But he who did not know, yet committed things deserving of stripes, shall be beaten with few. For everyone to whom much is given, from him much will be required; and to whom much has been committed, of him they will ask the more.

New King James Version (NKJV)

Most attribute this MUCH to the acquisition of power, money, or influence.  This is far from what the Lord is talking about. It is clear: THAT SERVANT WHO KNEW HIS MASTER’S WILL, AND DID NOT PREPARE HIMSELF OR DO ACCORDING TO HIS WILL, SHALL BE BEATEN WITH MANY STRIPES. Wow… This is a power and yet so useful. Although it may seem like a hard thing for us to achieve, it is possible to walk in His will, which is found only in the Word of God.

In just these first few days, I have realized some things that I really need to submit to and come up in! I know it is possible not because I desire some great reward but simply because the desire to do so does not originate from me and it is of the Lord. As long as He is still grooming me, rebuking me, chastening me all is NOT lost! I leave you with this:

Philippians 3

12 Not that I have already attained, or am already perfected; but I press on, that I may lay hold of that for which Christ Jesus has also laid hold of me. 13 Brethren, I do not count myself to have apprehended; but one thing I do, forgetting those things which are behind and reaching forward to those things which are ahead, 14 I press toward the goal for the prize of the upward call of God in Christ Jesus.

15 Therefore let us, as many as are mature, have this mind; and if in anything you think otherwise, God will reveal even this to you. 16 Nevertheless, to the degree that we have already attained, let us walk by the same rule,[b] let us be of the same mind.

New King James Version (NKJV)

Getting Unstuck!!

 Until Next Time… Bask in His Presence & Be Blessed!
