Who Are You?

Guilt ridden, full of fear, anxiety, hatred and selfish ambition. Death and destruction will become overwhelming in every single thing you think, do and desire. It is time to let go of all of these things and focus on God and His plan for your life.

Wash yourselves; make yourselves clean; remove the evil of your deeds from before my eyes; cease to do evil, learn to do good; seek justice, correct oppression; bring justice to the fatherless, plead the widow’s cause.

“Come now, let us reason together, says the Lord:
though your sins are like scarlet, they shall be as white as snow; though they are red like crimson, they shall become like wool.

If you are willing and obedient, you shall eat the good of the land; but if you refuse and rebel, you shall be eaten by the sword; for the mouth of the Lord has spoken.”

(Isaiah 1:16-20)

It has become too easy to focus only on revenge and survival and forgetting your calling. Our call as sons and daughters of the Living God has always been to do good, live out justice, to love and respect people and to walk humbly with our God (Micah 6:8).

With this message I want to remind you who you are and what is and should be important…

Are our desires His desires or vice versa?

Where does it start and where does it end? I think it is actually so intertwined that it’s hard to tell at times ….one of my recent unexpressed desires was that I longed to hear Him more – in a real way and be so entrenched with and in Him so I can tell others more about Him… Let me back up a bit…

A while ago I was thinking about how I don’t seem to hear people (myself included) talking and being excited about what the Lord has done for them recently, any-more. You know, about what He has done for them that day or for others or what He told them that day- the way we did when we’ve just met Him? I started to think about earthly relationships specifically romantic ones-how the two lovers cannot seem to talk enough about each other, to everyone who wants to and who does not want to hear. How we divulge the minutest piece of information of our times together with trusted friends and to acquaintances around us – just as long as we can get it off our chest! We want to shout it to the world and from the roof tops that we’ve just been with our lover and that he/she has said this or done that, how wonderful and perfect they are etc. …

Sometimes our beings are so full of those emotions that we don’t even have to utter one word to others, because they already know and understand what you are not saying, because your whole facial expressions, from silly grins at nothing to deep pensive stares into nothing tells it all! We just put it all out there…

Ok, at the risk of becoming repetitive what I am wondering is…

Have we become so complacent, busy, so puffed up, so engrossed with this life and its affairs, or too accustomed to being a believer in Jesus Christ that we no longer find any excitement in Him, no longer appreciate the small things he does for us in our everyday life, has our love grown so cold that he has just become another familiar Person instead of The One and only true God. The giver of all that is so good and perfect? do we take His goodness for granted that we don’t deem it necessary to TELL about it…?

Fact is: He does not change,amidst a fast changing world He still remains the same Faithful God. He does want to talk to us to show us the way that we should walk in, to know Him and to be a blessing to others.

But: Are we going to talk about Him and about what He means and is to us?
Are we allowing His words to fill our very being, so that those who look at us will KNOW that we’ve been with the Lord without us saying a word?
Are we going to become excited about Him again ,the way it was at first, no, better yet even more excited, more in love, allowing our latter end to be so much more glorious than our previous and present state.

Let us return to the love that once captivated us so much – when our whole beings ate, drank, breathed, dreamed, talked, walked, laughed, vibrated and yes… lived…HIM!

Then they that feared the LORD spoke often one to another: and the LORD hearkened, and heard it, and a book of remembrance was written before him for them that feared the LORD, and that thought upon his name.
Malachi 3:16
