What if you stopped allowing what other people think dictate who you’re going to be and started living your life in a way that allows God to start blessing you more than you could ever bless yourself? HE WANTS TO DO THAT (Ephesians 3)
Earlier this week I was given the opportunity to listen to and review the new Matt Redman CD Glory Song. Y’all. I can’t. I can’t even explain what happened since I started listening to it. I literally feels like he may have found every journal I’ve ever written and started playing a melody to the heart songs I’ve sung over the years of brokenness, redemption and restoration. I shared some of this breakthrough song story on facebook and wanted to share it with you.
Every response we have in life is either out of fear or love // Bill Johnson
Yesterday I watched this unfold right in front of me. I shared something with someone that mirrored what they were doing/saying and immediately the person retaliated with a defensive “well I said it first”. Initially it caught me by surprise until I realized that the defensive posture to protect territory is also the response of fight or flight.
Love or fear.
Every response is rooted there.
Every word we speak is either rooted in recognizing that God has more than enough for all of us or it’s rooted in the poverty mind set of lack.
Every response of elbowing, cat clawing and erecting walls to guard our stuff is rooted in the fear response of OH NO YOU WONT I HAVE WHAT I HAVE AND YOU AINT GETTIN NONE OF THIS.
Every time we decide to shut out & close off or rise up and strut; it’s rooted in the fear of a case of mistaken identity & not being seen.
Every response rooted in love declares our recognition of the limitless God whose image we were created in, an extension of His hands, the movement of His feet, the Trust of His strength, the inheritance of the mind of Christ and the ownership of our seat at The Kings table as heirs to the throne.
What’s your response to life?
Answer me when I cry out, my righteous God! Set me free from my troubles! Have mercy on me! Listen to my prayer! How long, you people, will my reputation be insulted? How long will you continue to love what is worthless and go after lies? Selah Know this: the LORD takes personal care of the faithful. The LORD will hear me when I cry out to him.
Psalms 4:1-3 CEB
