God Uses The Strangest Things


I often think about what am I really “seeing” when I’m in the midst of a storm? Am I seeing the end result, am I seeing the past(what I could have done to protect myself from it) or am I seeing nothing but the STORM(right then in the present)?

It is my experience that sometimes it’s all these things in the blink of an eye. Sometimes it’s simply the current situation.

The worst thing I can see is the PAST! Be careful when ppl say: I’m only bringing up your past so that you can learn from it and make sure it never happens again!

People (well ill say for those who are in Christ) stop listening to mans logic & wisdom…if you are constantly reminded of what went wrong…whose speaking of what to do right? Whose teaching you how to forgive & forget? YES FORGET…meaning when you truly forgive someone…when see them, hear them, the past situation is not the first thing that comes to mind! Yes I know it’s HARD! It’s why you need the strength of God to walk it out! Doesn’t mean you have to be best friends again, or date, etc…but it does mean that there is NO ROOT of bitterness that has hold of you! (Hebrews 12:15) remember whats growing on the INSIDE of you can kill you quicker than any outside circumstance!

Please LET GOD BE THE JUDGE, for HE is the only ONE that knows the whole truth concerning the STORM! And trust He will judge accordingly. None of us have the right to judge someone…no sin greater than the other, God says that the wages if sin is death..but guess which death He speaking of…the one that count..SPIRITUAL! Why should we fear any man who can only kill the body, vs the one who can kill both?

It was through accident that left my 4yr old son lying in a hospital bed brain dead that brought me to Christ. At the time I was going through the storm I went through every emotion possible …but GOD, my SPEECH changed from VICTIM, to CONQUEROR! And I LOST a lot of friends! I gained new ones…but that CIRCLE is small now! And filled with those who could careless who I was before Christ, but push me daily to be WHO HE CREATED ME TO BE!

Friends, family, others may never understand WHY u love someone, why u don’t give up, why u won’t quit? But remember its not for them too…you however must ensure that you are committed to the CALLING!

SCRIPTURE OF THE DAY-PHILIPPIANS 3:10

[For my determined purpose is] that I may know Him [that I may progressively become more deeply and intimately acquainted with Him, perceiving and recognizing and understanding the wonders of His Person more strongly and more clearly], and that I may in that same way come to know the power outflowing from His resurrection [which it exerts over believers], and that I may so share His sufferings as to be continually transformed [in spirit into His likeness even] to His death, [in the hope] (Philippians 3:10 AMP)

[MINISTRY] TAKE UP YOUR CROSS AND WALK!!!

Good morning everyone!

Today I just wanted to talk to you about who you are, and the plan God has for your life! As I showered this morning and had a gospel mix playing…the overwhelming SPIRIT OF GOD just made HIS presence known. What went from some very “bad” shower singing, turned into full out Holy Ghost praying in the spirit. For me I have come to RECOGNIZE these are the moments when He wants to teach me something, remind me of something, basically BLESS ME, with His wisdom, knowledge, and understanding. So as I stood there I could here the Lord asking me if I truly understood what He meant when He said: “If any person wills to come after ME, let him DENY himself [disown himself, forget, lose sight of himself and his OWN INTERESTS, refuse and give up himself] and TAKE UP HIS CROSS DAILY and follow Me [cleave steadfastly to Me, conform wholly to My example in living and, if need be, in dying also].” (Luke 9:23 AMP)

Well we all know that when the Lord asks you a question, it’s mostly rhetorical, because He already knows the answer..lol. So I simply waited for Him to explain.

Let me explain first what YOUR cross is…it’s the plan, the course, THE DESTINY, that God has for your life. It’s knowing why you were created, and being completely sold out to that PURPOSE. See when Christ was born, who He was, and what He was born in the earth to do..never took a back seat to His own plans, or decisions to become something else, do something else, but rather to do, say, and BE what He was created to be. It was the ONLY WAY to bring Glory to the Father’s name. (PRAISE DANCE)

See when the person who created the first cell phone, he created it to be able to do certain things…it embodied certain ummm gifts if you will, and it’s number one function was to place phone calls without being attached to a chord, or land-line of some kind. That cell phone is functioning at it’s best when it was being used according to it’s purpose, or as it walked out the plan in which it was created for. Now although that MAIN purpose has been expounded, it does NOT TAKE AWAY from it’s foundational use…TO MAKE PHONE CALLS from anywhere.

When have been given a CROSS to walk with, and in order for us to carry this thing, we must KNOW THE ONE WHO GAVE it to us, and we must DENY ourselves! Give up our own ideas of what our lives should be, and instead accept the life GOD has given us. I have come to understand tthat when we begin to make decisions (without the input of the Holy Spirit) about what we should be doing, it tends to stray far away from God’s plan..mainly because we see how insurmountable that plan is. We see no light at the end of the tunnel! We have no idea how this can happen, so we tend to SETTLE for our own plan..cause hey we can at least SEE OR IMAGINE how it can be done. But I’m hear to say that type of thinking, and speech is for COWARDS! Let me tell you who God created…CONQUERORS!

THE MORAL OF THE STORY IS: We are more than conquerors…willing to take up our cross and walk daily into the destiny that the Father has mapped out for us. No matter where the road leads, we go willing with the Holy Spirit as the driver…(hey do you think that after fasting for 40days/nights that the first place Christ wanted to be led to was the desert to have an interaction with Satan? Luke 4), absolutely not..he would have rather eaten..but He understood the CROSS He had been given.

So I challenge you this week to find out what is the Cross (purpose) you have been given! Stay away from other people’s crosses/purpose/lanes..YOU WERE NOT CREATED TO WALK IT! 

God Bless-Margo

 

THE PURPOSE DRIVEN LIFE-DAY 1

Rick Warren’s best selling book: The Purpose Driven Life is a great 40 day devotional study. Now I know this book has been out for years, and I have had it for quite some time, I have yet to make it thru to the full 40 days. But hey no time like the present.

Day 1 speaks about where to look in finding out not only your purpose in life, but simply who you are. One thing I have learned on my journey with Christ is that, in order to know my purpose I must first know my Creator, He in turn will tell me His purpose for creating me. Simply put, it’s not about me! It’s about His purpose for creating me.

“The purpose of your life is far greater than your own personal fulfillment, your peace of mind, your career, or even your happiness. It’s far greater than your family or even your wildest dreams and ambitions. If you want to know why you were placed on this planet, you must begin with God. You were born by His purpose and for His purpose.”-Rick Warren

SCRIPTURE OF THE WEEK-ECCLESIATES 3

I know that a lot of you have read this chapter in Ecclesiastes before, or at the very least has heard passages from it, but please take a moment to chew on this word. It will really help you in your walk with Christ. It will give you the ability to exercise the patience that is endowed to you by the Holy Spirit. Just meditate on it.

“To EVERYTHING there is a season, and a time for every matter or purpose under heaven…”-Ecclesiates 3:1

There is a purpose for your life. You are not here by coincidence, or happenstance, God knew exactly what He was doing when He knitted you in your mothers womb. It is your lifes work to find out what that purpose is. But the toil doesn’t have to be painful, if you would only seek the Creator to find out. Then trust that He has your best interest at heart, and TRUST HIM.
