“Fed Up…”

How did things go “on the night bed” last evening?

Keep pressing in and on.

Worship the Lord continuously.

Pray without ceasing.

The Lord is preparing and using a mighty army for the Kingdom of God.

Yesterday I posted the following as “my status” on the various social networks - FaceBook, MySpace, Twitter, Yahoo, Imeem, etc.

“, your getting ‘fed-up’ with it...what are you gonna do?”

Had several interesting responses.

Of course, folk always want to know “what do you mean?”

I meant several things…

But primarily, there is a stirring afoot among believers...a move of the Spirit...a move that is bringing correction to self and motivation to speak forth the truth.

The status quo is no longer satisfactory.

The Lord is calling us to speak to those in the church…

  • to encourage
  • to exhort
  • to pursue love

The Lord is calling us to speak to the world…
  • to proclaim the good news of the love of the Lord
  • to proclaim salvation through the Lord Jesus Christ
  • to call for repentance, confession and transformation in the Lord.

The Lord is calling us to be the salt of the earth.

The Lord is calling us to be the light of the world.

So, you are “fed-up”. What are you gonna do?

I like my friend’s Flipper response…”push away from the table.”
There is much wisdom in this...especially for the church.
Too many believers are “stuffed” with truth they refuse to give out.
It is time to “give out” as well as “take in.”

Here are the things we are to do…

  1. Seek first the Kingdom of God and His righteousness
  2. Wait for Him to add the other things
  3. Pray without ceasing
  4. Rejoice
  5. Be obedient
  6. Be Berean...don’t just trust what someone told you or what you think you know the Word to show yourself approved.
  7. Be faithful
  8. Pursue holiness
  9. Pursue love
  10. Die to self

Of course, more could be listed.

If the Lord stirs within you to do something, then do it.
If the Lord leads you to speak to the Body of Christ, then do it.
If the Lord leads you to speak to the sins of society, then do it.
If the Lord leads you to address family, friends, co-workers, etc., then do it.

Speak forth the truth.

Fear not.

Who knows, perhaps it is not too late for our families.
Perhaps it is not too late for the country in which we live.

With God, all things are possible.

Matt 19:26
26 But Jesus beheld them, and said unto them, With men this is impossible; but with God all things are possible.

Mark 10:27
27 And Jesus looking upon them saith, With men it is impossible, but not with God: for with God all things are possible.

Luke 18:27
27 And he said, The things which are impossible with men are possible with God.

With God, nothing is impossible.

Luke 1:37
37 For with God nothing shall be impossible.

Today’s reading from the “So That’s Why?” Bible consists of pp. 1206-1211.
