I need for you to ask yourself a question…honestly…can God use you? Or are you just going through the motions? Most people won’t admit it; but the truth will come forth. How effective are you in transacting Kingdom business? What would God say? Don’t feel bad…I was there…but God helped me.
I had to repent…then I rolled my sleeves up and got to work. My flame has been rekindled; and I promise to try to ignite anyone that gets in my way! YOU BETTER THINK ABOUT IT!
Most people do not know that because of my childhood summers in the mountains of West Virginia; I was not afraid of mountains. So, it was no surprise to me that when I got older and began to walk with the Lord that I…climbed the highest mountain that I could find…faithwise….that could be said.
So…what did I do when I got “near” the top?
No, everyone doesn’t do that. Most people go higher up…”the spiritual mountain.” But, I didn’t…I slipped because I “felt” I was doing too much and I felt that I wasn’t getting any help. Was it God’s fault? NO WAY! Was it my pastor or any minister of the Gospel that God sent my way with a message, a Word, to speak into my life? NO WAY?
Well, the flesh always needs somebody to blame …and it was me!
Had I truthfully done everything that God had instructed me to do or was I doing the famous “pick and choose?”
I was missing it, lacking energy, slowly becoming dull…and inwardly…I knew it. People could not really tell it…they probably just thought I was laid back…but God knew.
I knew too.
I had grown weary in well doing… the bible truly warns against this. I was still going to church and to meetings and sometimes I wasn’t quite plugged in like I should have been.
So what God me back on track? God did!!!
Don’t wait for REVIVAL! Ask God to help you.
LOOK AT THOSE WORDS: REAWAKEN, STIMULATE, REVIVE, AROUSE, STIR UP, REVIVIFY, REACTIVATE! WOW!!
One day///in some way…God gave me a dream…and as a result the spark ignited a flame in me…that the devil truly is just sick about…I like that!
Now let me leave this with you…REKINDLE THE FIRE! STOP PLAYING CHURCH..>FIRE YOUR ENGINES UP!! LET’S GET THIS KINGDOM BUSINESS DONE. HALLELUJAH!!!
6 Hence I remind you to rekindle the gift of God that is within you through the laying on of my hands; 7 for God did not give us a spirit of timidity but a spirit of power and love and self-control. 8 Do not be ashamed then of testifying to our Lord, nor of me his prisoner, but share in suffering for the gospel in the power of God, 9 who saved us and called us with a holy calling, not in virtue of our works but in virtue of his own purpose and the grace which he gave us in Christ Jesus ages ago, 10 and now has manifested through the appearing of our Savior Christ Jesus, who abolished death and brought life and immortality to light through the gospel. 11 For this gospel I was appointed a preacher and apostle and teacher, 12 and therefore I suffer as I do. But I am not ashamed, for I know whom I have believed, and I am sure that he is able to guard until that Day what has been entrusted to me. 13 Follow the pattern of the sound words which you have heard from me, in the faith and love which are in Christ Jesus; 14 guard the truth that has been entrusted to you by the Holy Spirit who dwells within us. 2 Timothy 1: 6-14
