When Will It End? Part 1

I will praise Thee, for I am fearfully and wonderfully made: marvelous are Thy works; and that my soul knoweth right well. Psalm 139:14 (KJV)

Your beauty, I created.

Me, your Lord.

But you choose to worship idols and claim to be flawed.

I can’t understand why you use this word.

You put My work down that I made.

You curse and flaunt your false beauty.

Creating a duplicate piece.

Remember that the duplicate never holds as much worth as the original masterpiece.

You hold yourself up to the next man or woman.

All the while, they look at you in the same manner.

When will it all stop.

When will you all see that your beauty can’t be reproduced.

I didn’t make them like you, nor did I make you them.

So stop throwing shade at yourself.

Putting yourself down.

Every time you do, I frown.

Why?

Because with every negative though, you come in agreement with the devil.

Who puts these idols and false Gods directly in front of you.

This is why so many are denying my gospel.

The hoop.

The holler.

The “dressed for the gawds”

And you look at Me for more income just to spend it on that Benz.

Your lights are off and your every bill is due.

Was it worth keeping up with the false Gods?

You claim to “put a praise on it” for your miracle to come.

But what you don’t know is that isn’t how I flow.

Get into My Word, my dear child.

Give it a rest.

I see you’re weary and Me, i’m unimpressed.

Realize that the abundant life I came to give you wasn’t for show.

I came hoping you’d carry My glow.

The abundant life has more to do with than just fame.

No, it’s falling to your knees and proclaiming My name.

“My glory will be shown through them”, was my first thoughts when I made you.

But you took that glory and now My Word is being fulfilled through you.

Not in the way that I wanted.

But men will be lovers of themselves.

Yeah, that part.

So how far will you go all in the name of fashion?

Your gaining this world and loosing your salvation.

So…you got this one, eh?

Why do we choose to take matters into our own hands? Why do we say, “Take a coffee break, Jesus. I have this one under control.” We forcefully take whatever we placed in His hands back. We send Him to our other issue(s) and keep this particular one because we feel we can handle it, it’s not that serious to give to God, or we are tired of waiting on God to work and think we can make things happen faster.

Let’s think for a moment. In life, we all have tried to fix one thing or another. When we did, we failed. Or we temporarily fixed the issue with our solution. I remember getting having an issue with my radiator in my car. It had a leak which caused my fluid to leak. Fixing it was about $350. I didn’t have that at the time. So I spoke to some people and they recommended putting an adhesive fluid in my radiator that will flow through and attach itself to the issue. If this worked, the leak would be fixed. But only for a moment. It would just buy me time until I replaced the radiator. But if I chose this route, the fluid of course doesn’t just stay in radiator, but the fluid will flow through the system. Now I would risk clogging up other parts of my car because of my quick and easy patch work.

Can you see where this is going? Taking the situation from God to fix it yourself will cause other areas in your life to be affected. Not only is your faith in God now rocky, but your trust is shaky. Your determination is now depleting. Your destiny has now taken a back seat to your now. We take our eyes off of the bigger picture to “fix” our now. By patching up our now, we hinder the blessing from flowing to our future.

The Bible says, “to acknowledge Me in all of your ways and I will direct your path. “It also reads, “cast all your cast into me.” The keys Word in both these verses is all. Not some. Not only the “big” things. Not just things that seem out of your reach. But ALL. Why does He want all of your ways and cares? Because His thoughts and ways are so much higher than ours could even be. His wisdom is too great. If we need to have surgery, we go to the hospital and lay down on the bed so the doctor can work on our bodies. But first they put us to sleep. Imagine taking the scalpel from the doctor while saying “I got this”. No you don’t have this. You will bleed to death if you make the wrong incision. Because you have no idea what you’re doing. The doctor has the schooling and knowledge to know that where they need to cut here. I need to do xyandz to fix this problem and make this person healthier.

So I say all of this to say, let God reign freely in your life. He has everything under control. Trusting Him is the best thing you can do in your life. He is God. A God that is able to do above all you can ask or think.

He’s able. 

It was a little after 12 midnight on the last day of the month of May when God woke me up. At first, I thought I was making a restroom run. But, it turned out to be a moment with God. A moment to listen. A moment to witness His greatness.

I opened my Bible app and began to scroll through John. As I read, my faith increased. I read about His miracles. I read about His love. I read about His awesome power. The power that lives in me.  

It was then that He spoke “Believe” . 
I encourage you to believe as well. God will perform on your behalf.
