In my quiet time, I discovered that I had assumed too many of life’s burdens. In other words, I had grown consumed with worry. If I told you what I was struggling with behind these words, your jaw would drop. If I shared what struggles I worship and smile in spite of, you’d likely be amazed. But, I won’t, because there is no praise-worthiness in sharing such troubles. After all, we all have them.
But, during my quiet time, the Holy Spirit showed me that I had taken on burdens that I was never designed to carry myself. Not only that, I had assumed a weak – almost pitiful – Christian posture based on an intellectual experience [with God] rather than a spiritual, powerful-laden, supernatural faith.
So many times, Christians try to reason, understand, and figure out God and how He moves within the earth. This is futile, silly and often a tool of the enemy. You see, in our attempts to figure God out, we become confused and drawn away from the fiery, real-time power of the Holy Spirit. You can’t walk in earthly intellect and faith at the same time – the two just don’t go together.
In our begging, pleading and whining, we forget that God’s promises are for US TODAY (not the newspaper) and not limited to some ancient, mystical figures in the scriptures. We can stand on God’s word and assert an authority (given by Jesus) that will make the Kingdom of Hell shudder and impact lives for Christ.
So, for those who are stuck in the quagmire of intellectual malaise – you keep it. In the meantime, you will find me standing strong in the power of Jesus and claiming my inheritance as a joint-heir in Christ. Keep your “whys”, your “but in the Greek it means”…I don’t need it and will likely just laugh at you.
I will live in the supernatural power of the Holy Spirit and His real- almost can touch Him- experience in my life. For then and only then I can be a true blessing to the Body of Christ and speak a powerful word to encourage you in your times of pain and trouble.
You get only what you have faith for, so you choose – Victory or Logic. Sometimes, it really is a choice. For instance, Jesus spitting in a bunch of dirt and rubbing in on people was not logical – but it was victorious for the blind man that received sight. Choose today, Godsy Girl. Will you take Him at His word or try to figure Him out intellectually with man-made tools? I think you know what I choose!
