Life is a funny thing! We will begin to notice certain patterns as we get older. One of those things is the feeling of loneliness, and not fitting in where we once did. Changes do that…especially changes once we wake up to The Holy Spirit’s guidance.
To be set apart means just that…set apart.
To be set apart is to be given an assignment that requires preparation. The purpose of being marked differently is not a punishment but quite the contrary…you are chosen.
To be given a gift calls for us to be humble!
2 When pride cometh, then cometh shame: but with the lowly is wisdom.
We are also meant to gain a deeper sense of compassion for others.
I am constantly met with anger and animosity for the work I do here. This will continue to take place because the people who come here to attack us have no hope.
Having no hope makes for a lonely existence? It fills one with bitterness and hate. But, this is when we’re meant to minister to those in need, not to attack. I see this taking place instead of helping…we are to swallow our tongue (figuratively) and press forward.
Hope comes with faith, they go hand-in-hand. Faith coincides with love. GOD has unconditional love which mankind will never be able to accomplish this feeling in relationships with one another.
Moderation of a comment recently left me with the feeling that I needed to address a very important subject. Mr. Rodden commented that he sometimes felt lonely…I replied…
We are NOT meant to fit in…and it would make for a lonely existence..IF it wasn’t for Jesus Christ! I am constantly reminded by The Holy Spirit of the wickedness within this world…but I am reminded of GOD’S Love even more.
It’s hard to explain because it’s supernatural but I have a connection to GOD that never leaves my spirit. This connection is something WE must make, even though GOD is always with us. It also explains the VOID which NON-believer’s have…they also have a hard time explaining it but this “SPACE” (passageway) is meant for communication. The non-believer’s use it to communicate with demons and always feel empty because Satan cannot create the same passage because GOD is love, and Satan is chaos.
This also has to do with HOPE. Feeling “empty” and having no hope is what non-believer’s feel every day. GOD gives us Faith and Hope. Satan cannot offer either one.
You see…we are to be “set apart”…NOT be “set aside”
Do you understand? We are set apart because we have work to do! And seriously…if we are doing this work, we will have little time for much else. We are to set out, in our heart to please GOD. That alone, is a full time job.
If your ready and you want things to grow…you must plant a seed! Proverbial?
We are to plant in the spring and cultivate in the early summer and reap in the fall.
Ephesians 2 (KJV)
12 That at that time ye were without Christ, being aliens from the commonwealth of Israel, and strangers from the covenants of promise, having no hope, and without God in the world:
GOD tells us what the followers of Satan will be like…
They are darkened in their understanding and alienated from the life of GOD because of the ignorance that is in them due to the hardness of their hearts.
There will be some we can help, and others even, The Father in Heaven knows is not HIS. So always pray, keep a constant link between yourself and GOD. HE will let you know when there is someone who needs help.
Now…GO SERVE YOUR KING!
We are saved by grace alone, through faith alone, because of Jesus Christ alone….but we are NEVER alone!
People always come into your life for a reason, a season and a lifetime.
When you figure out which it is, you know exactly what to do.
When someone is in your life for a REASON, it is usually to meet a need you have expressed outwardly or inwardly.
They have come to assist you through a difficulty, or to provide you with guidance and support, to aid you physically, emotionally, or even spiritually.
They may seem like a godsend to you, and they are. They are there for a reason,you need them to be.
Then, without any wrong doing on your part or at an inconvenient time, this person will say or do something to bring the relationship to an end.
Sometimes they die, Sometimes they just walk away. Sometimes they act up or out and force you to take a stand.
What we must realize is that our need has been met, our desire fulfilled; their work is done. The prayer you sent up has been answered and it is now time to move on.
When people come into your life for a SEASON, it is because your turn has come to share, grow, or learn.
They may bring you an experience of peace or make you laugh. They may teach you something you have never done.
They usually give you an unbelievable amount of joy. Believe it! It is real! But, only for a season. And like Spring turns to Summer and Summer to Fall, the season eventually ends.
LIFETIME, relationships teach you a lifetime of lessons; those things you must build upon in order to have a solid emotional foundation.
Your job is to accept the lesson, love the person/people (anyway);, and put what you have learned to use in all other relationships and areas in your life.
Thank you for being part of my life…..
