Wow! What a weekend I’ve had!
This weekend, I attended a leadership conference. There were so many lessons…expected and unexpected. The biggest thing that I took away was that I need to live an authentic life before God and that I MUST BE DELIVERED FROM PEOPLE.
God has made each and every one of us in a unique way and has allowed certain things in our lives, all for his glory. I never understood why I went through what I did in my faith. Pastor Jimmy Rollins said something that really caught my attention though. He said, when God delivers us from things, we then get the anointing to help others in that area. So if someone had an addiction and they were delivered, they now are able to help others who are suffering from addiction.
Often times, I wonder who I’m going to set free. I base this on my biggest testimony to date. In the past, I’ve mistaken my testimony to only be for me. But now, I know God didn’t allow me to be deceived for 10 years not to free other people from deception. With that being said, I must live my life at the feet of Jesus, seeking the holy spirit’s guidance. I must acknowledge how the spirit leads me, even when I don’t understand. Even when no one agrees. I’m not sure where the spirit will lead me, but I trust God to lead me to his absolute truth. I know that he will. I only seek to please him.
With that being said, I must be delivered from people. Not anyone specific, but all people. I know that for where God is taking me, I must also be honest in where I am. Jesus did not come to pacify people and neither can I.
I’m not sure what God is doing in me, but I must first start by being my authentic self…
