Blessings! It’s that time again!
Another Tuesday with Jesus.
Whew Chile. This Tuesday has taken me on a roller coaster and it’s only 2pm. God has never been more real than he has in this moment. I feel a great shift. Anyways that’s a story for another day. I started that journey today in the Book of Isaiah. Like Psalms , Isaiah is one of the books that I’ve never read in its I’m entirety. I can quote you a few scriptures, but i can’t give you a full run down of what God told Isaiah. My focus over the next month is diving deep.
My original message from today (written yesterday btw) was: There’s so much to learn from the life of the prophet and prophecies. I’m reminded of the relationship between Elijah and Elisha. Mentors are meant to do two things: teach you what to do and what not to do.
As I dive into this book I’m wondering:
Who has been influencing your life and is it for the better?
What kind of word have they spoken over your life?
Do you love them enough to head criticism and correction or does it fall on deaf ears?
What I Actually Gleaned on Today 🔥:
“I will repay you for the years that the swarming locust ate, the young locust, the destroying locust, and the devouring locust — My great army that I sent against you.” Joel 2:25 HCSB
This word had come to me 3 times before 8:45am. Once in a podcast, meditation, and a periscope. God has not forgotten you. God does not care about the shame you’re carrying around on your back. Be courageous and trade that yoke with Him. Your shame has already been covered. Why are you still holding onto it. You wouldn’t pay a store twice for the one tube of deodorant, why are you paying for a sin that’s been covered? FOR FREE at that! You maybe be skeptical but what do you have to lose? You’ve given people your all but not God? Why? He’s not a man that shall lie. He is a mighty, gracious , redeeming God. He has plans for you. Greater than your mind could imagine if you let go of what “they” may think or say about you.
Side Take Away: I had a plan of reflection and the Holy Spirit wrecked it...wrecked me. I’m perfectly fine with that. Don’t get so caught up in your plans that you miss God giving you directions. He’s always there knowing what your heart needs. Also knowing who needs to hear from your heart. Everything ain’t about you.
