THE SAME GOD WHO GIVES HE TAKES AWAY!
THE SAME GOD WHO PROMOTES HE DEMOTES!
THE SAME GOD WHO EXALTS HE HUMBLES!
THE LORD IS NOT A RESPECTER OF PERSONS FYI.
DON'T YOU DARE GET COCKY WITH THE LORD!
DON'T YOU DARE GET COCKY
WITH HIS BLESSINGS,
AND THE CALLING, PURPOSE, MINISTRY, AND OPEN DOORS HE HAS FOR YOUR LIFE.
THE SAME GOD WHO WAS WITH YOU IN THE PIT OR IN THE DESERT IS THE SAME GOD WHO IS TAKING YOU TO THE MOUNTAIN OR THE PALACE BUT BE WARNED THAT IF YOU BECOME COCKY, SELFISH, APATHETIC AND/OR UNGRATEFUL YOU BETTER BELIEVE HE CAN PLACE YOUR BEHIND BACK TO THE PIT TO HUMBLE AND PURIFY YOU! REMEMBER THE STORY OF NEBUCHADNEZZAR.
IT IS IMPERATIVE FOR THE BODY OF CHRIST TO SEEK THE LORD'S CORRECTION DAILY SO WE CAN BE THE LIGHT OF THE WORLD AND THE SALT OF THE EARTH.
JESUS HAS BEEN DEALING WITH ME LATELY AND I SENSED THE FOLLOWING MESSAGE:
IF YOU'RE GOING THROUGH THE FIRE IT'S BECAUSE THE LORD HAS TO PURIFY ALL THE IMPURITIES OFF YOU AND I.
THE BIGGER THE CALLING,
THE BIGGER THE ANOINTING,
THE BIGGER THE PAIN AND SACRIFICE,
AND THE BIGGER THE SPIRITUAL WARFARE THAT COMES WITH IT.
WE MUST BE PURIFIED AND CONSECRATED IN THE FIRE IN ORDER FOR THE LORD TO POSITION US IN OUR GOD-GIVEN DESTINIES ACCORDING TO HIS TIMING.
JESUS WILL NEVER PLACE HIS CARNAL SON OR DAUGHTER IN A POSITION THAT IS MEANT TO GIVE HIM GLORY AND PRAISE.
IN CLOSING, LET'S REMIND OURSELVES THAT JESUS IS OUR ULTIMATE EXAMPLE. JESUS PICKED UP HIS CROSS AND HE WAS HUMBLE. AS CHRISTIANS THAT IS OUR MANDATE AND WE MUST OBEY. #NOEXCUSES
1 Corinthians 1:31
Therefore, as it is written: “Let the one who boasts boast in the Lord.”
Pride goes before destruction,
And a haughty spirit before a fall.
Adulterers and adulteresses! Do you not know that friendship with the world is enmity with God? Whoever therefore wants to be a friend of the world makes himself an enemy of God.
then beware, lest you forget the Lord who brought you out of the land of Egypt, from the house of bondage. You shall fear the Lord your God and serve Him, and shall take oaths in His name. You shall not go after other gods, the gods of the peoples who are all around you (for the Lord your God is a jealous God among you), lest the anger of the Lord your God be aroused against you and destroy you from the face of the earth. “You shall not tempt the Lord your God as you tempted Him in Massah. You shall diligently keep the commandments of the Lord your God, His testimonies, and His statutes which He has commanded you. And you shall do what is right and good in the sight of the Lord, that it may be well with you, and that you may go in and possess the good land of which the Lord swore to your fathers, to cast out all your enemies from before you, as the Lord has spoken.
