Are we doing what God has called us to do, the WAY that He wants us to do it?
Beloved, the Lord spoke to me saying, “Many of My people are doing what I’ve called and anointed them to do, but they aren’t doing it the WAY I wanted them to do it. It’s NOT ENOUGH to merely do what God wants done, we MUST do it the WAY He wants it done…
Guess what beloved, this is an easy place to find ourselves. I believe that one of the main reasons that we end up here is because we get anxious. We’ve been programmed to grab life by the horns, and where there is no way, MAKE ONE..
But if can I be perfectly honest and say this, that’s a direct contradiction to what the word of God teaches. You can search from Genesis to Revelation and you won’t find that. That’s the worldly or carnal way of living, of which I’ve been gravely entangled in. Can I also offer this other word that the Lord shared with me this morning? Because we don’t seek and follow the directions and instructions of God, although we may see a certain degree of manifestation, many of us will NEVER see, nor will we experience God’s POWER and FULLNESS. That’s why people who are unsaved are comfortable in fellowship with many of us. There’s no real power that invokes change.
You see, this way of living robs us of what God has ordained to SET US APART, it robs us of becoming the CITY THAT SITS ON A HILL THAT CANNOT BE HIDDEN, and we merely become a church building on a corner lot, or a campus, with a big ole steeple. God hasn’t called us to do what the world does, He’s called us to separate ourselves, in our practices and principles, but we’ve conformed to the world.
“Ye are the light of the world. A city that is set on an hill cannot be hid.,,Matthew 5:14
Do you remember when David and the people of God were bringing the Ark back to Jerusalem? This was what God wanted them to do, but something happened in the process, Uzzah was killed when he touched the Ark with his hands. When you read 2 Samuel 6 your initial response may be wow Lord, that was pretty harsh of You, because Uzzah was trying to keep the Ark from hitting the ground when the oxen stumbled. But upon taking a closer look you’ll discover that although they were doing what God called and anointed them to do, they didn’t do it how God wanted it done..
They weren’t suppose to place the Ark on a cart on the backs of oxen, they were suppose to place the Ark on the shoulders, to be carried men. Rather that doing the Lord’s work the way the Lord taught them, they did it the way the Philistines did it. Therefore, a man was killed..
Beloved this passage speak VOLUMES to us today. The Philistine’s way represent the world’s way. So I ask a simple question, Are you wholly doing what God has called and anointed you to do, the WAY God has called you to do it?
“And be not conformed to this world: but be ye transformed by the renewing of your mind, that ye may prove what is that good, and acceptable, and perfect, will of God…Romans 12:2
I BELIEVE God wants to make a BIG BANG in the world, in our everyday lives, but it’s going to take wholly seeking, obeying, and following His instructions and directions…
What’s the BIG BANG?
- Making us Light that people CANNOT look past us…
- Making us a City of power and truth, that CANNOT BE HIDDEN, where people see Jesus and come, saying, “WHAT must I do to be saved?
