So I had a 414Many moment yesterday that involved something I posted a few days ago. This man began crying as I went to greet him. I didn’t think I had anything to do with his tears and as I hugged him back all I heard him saying in my ear was “thank you brother for posting that, I needed that, thank you for that word, I need a big hug from you bro”. I almost started crying too. God showed me the words He puts on my mind and heart through His spirit in me aren’t falling on deaf ears. My flesh once in awhile would try to talk me out of sharing messages. The enemy would tell me, “Yo MJ no one cares about your music or the things you post. You’re wasting your time trying to help people, most of them probably think you’re a fraud anyways. Look at you, you post about love and all that mushy stuff and you’ve been married twice, you talk pro-family but your own son don’t even live with you. You say God said you’re a king, a man of God but you’re 40 and had to move back in with your parents. You’re trying to live righteous for nothing, these people don’t care about what you have to say. Oh and before I forget, you don’t even have a real job”.
I can agree to everything the devil and his minions spew in my mind, BUT GOD.
But my Pops told me this isn’t my ending this is just the beginning of the divine destiny He has for me. He’s not looking at my start my past like people do and how Satan tries to remind us of. God has seasons for me to walk in His purpose for me. He’s still straightening out paths for me, He’s going ahead getting His lampposts ready for my feet, He’s still removing things out of me that can’t go to the new place. He’s placing people on and off my elevator, He’s making me the man He wants me to be. His love and His grace keeps me pressing on for His glory. Continue to have Your way in me and I make myself available to You. Use me Lord Jesus!!!
Thank You for helping me plant a seed in them, the lost ones, the hurting ones. Prick their hearts Lord Jesus, use me to get their attention.
