Walk it Out Part 3
This word was given to me from God, and we did a Youtube video about it on Sep. 28, 2015. It is posted on our website, themessengersradio.com. I encourage you to go back and listen to it in its entirety. We have been breaking it down into smaller episodes so we can delve into these words and find some clarity. This is the 3rd part of the sessions we have been doing.
In the word given to me, God encourages that we spend time alone with Him. We need to Praise and Glorify Him. One of the most important things we can do is thank Him. He loving made each of us, and we need to acknowledge that with thanksgiving. If you can’t think of what to thank Him for, thank Him for the air you breathe. He’s the One who created everything, and we need to at least be grateful. Start off with anything you can think of, and it will flow from there. Spend time with Him and learn how much He loves you. We did a series on our website about His love for us. Listening to those shows might give you more insight. But for now we will recap. Jesus died for us because He loves us so much. John 3:16 shows us,
• John 3:16New King James Version (NKJV)
• 16 For God so loved the world that He gave His only begotten Son, that whoever believes in Him should not perish but have everlasting life.
So many people know this verse, but they never fully understand it. His love is so much more than we can ever imagine. Romans 5:7 points out a truth for us.
• Romans 5:7
• For scarcely for a righteous man will one die; yet perhaps for a good man someone would even dare to die.
Some people flippantly say that they would die for another. Some people would lay their life down, but the Word cautions us in 1 Cor 13:3
• 1 Corinthians 13:3New International Version (NIV)
• 3 If I give all I possess to the poor and give over my body to hardship that I may boast,[a] but do not have love, I gain nothing.
• 1 Corinthians 13:3King James Version (KJV)
• 3 And though I bestow all my goods to feed the poor, and though I give my body to be burned, and have not charity, it profiteth me nothing.
Once we truly understand His love for us, we will want to go tell others. We need to make sure we tell them His truth, though. Some people rush out and tell people what they think people should know, without any scripture to back it up. This is dangerous because it could end with legality being taught or other Biblical truths being distorted. Then, both people are led astray. We need to tell them what the Holy Spirit prompts us to. When you are filled with the Holy Spirit, you need to let Him speak thru you. When we start speaking our own words, they can end up doing harm. We have spoken countless times about the power of our words in past sessions, but I don’t think we can emphasize this enough.
• Proverbs 18:21New King James Version (NKJV)
• 21 Death and life are in the power of the tongue,
And those who love it will eat its fruit.
We have the power of life and death in our tongue. I believe this is the single most deadly thing. If you get bitten by a snake, there is generally anti-venom, but there is no taking back words you have said, no matter how hard you try.
For example, as believers, we don’t have to be afraid of dying, but we can speak death over people all day long if we don’t watch our tongue. We can kill people’s hopes and dreams. We cannot just ruin someone’s day; we can ruin their lives. That is a big responsibility, so we need to take it as such.
We need to only speak the words our Father tells us. That’s what Jesus did. He only said and did what His Father told Him. And we have the same authority as Jesus had. He said we would do even greater things!
Now is the time to take our world back by speaking up. That doesn’t necessarily mean going to other parts of the world. You can speak up to people at work. You can make a difference in your church. You can talk to other people wherever you are. You have a voice in the world, no matter how small or insignificant you feel. You may have been told that you are not special enough. That is a lie straight from the enemy, because God lovingly made you in His image and you are very special to Him. He loves you more than you will ever know. So, if you just talk to one person about God, and tell them about His love, you are doing His will.
He gave us life, and all He asks is that we give it back to Him. Because He loves us so much, He gives us free will, (the choice to follow Him), but He truly wants to use us for His glory. God needs us to be His hands, feet and mouthpiece. He can’t come down from Heaven and reach people on His own. He gave us the Holy Spirit so that we could Go into the world and make disciples as Jesus commanded in the Great Commission found in Matthew 28:18-20.
We have a responsibility to Go and Do. We have to speak His words and do His will. This may start out slow, or He may take you on a fast track. It’s all up to what you are willing to do. He will meet you where you are and take you as far as you want to go. It’s important to point out that this is all by your will. He is not forcing this on you. He will not love you any less if you don’t follow His plan for your life, but you will miss out on all the blessings and joys of the journey. This is a journey that He wants to take you through. It’s a life-long experience. It’s a way of living; a way of being. He has to be first in your life. Put Him first and He will light your path.
• Psalm 119:105New International Version (NIV)
• 105 Your word is a lamp for my feet,
a light on my path.
Jesus is the light, and you are never in the dark when you put Him first and follow His ways.
• John 8:12
• When Jesus spoke again to the people, he said, “I am the light of the world. Whoever follows me will never walk in darkness, but will have the light of life.”
You will not be stumbling around in the darkness when you put Him first. So, wake up believers, follow His ways, and GO & DO!
