TODAY’S MEDITATION – Allow nobody to stop you from having a relationship with God (Joel 2:28)

Today’s Christians as so fast judging the others that it sometimes end up discouraging many people. My brother, my sister, allow me to give a quick testimony: yesterday, I watched a video that urged a man of God to be insulted by people so much that he was forced to remove it: in this video, a preacher was literally saying this to the assembly: ‘who told you that you can speak to God directly? You have to speak to the God of your prophet.’ This is really a joke. I want to ask that pastor this: ‘do I know your God and the relationship you have with him at all to call on him?’ I was not only shocked to hear this, but even more to read some servants of God supporting this pastor and, along with people raging against the man of God who was trying to denounce the message on this video. Obviously someone who can preach such an abomination might have missed this part of the Word to ask people to pray his own God: “I will pour out my Spirit on all people. Your sons and daughters will prophesy, your old men will dream dreams, your young men will see visions” (Joel 2:28)… My friend, yes you may be part of a Christian family, but you have to have a personal relationship with God, an intimate relationship where no one has to be an intermediary except for Jesus! So, if someone asks you why? Tell that person that God can use you the way you are, because He used others before you with their flaws, weaknesses and lack of knowledge: Noah was a drunk man Abraham was too old. Isaac was a daydreamer. Jacob was a liar. Leah was ugly. Joseph was abused by his brothers. Moses had a stuttering problem. Gideon was afraid. Sampson had long hair and a womanizer. Rahab was a prostitute. Jeremiah and Timothy were too young. David had an affair and was a murderer. Elijah was suicidal. Isaiah preached naked. Jonah ran from God. Naomi was a widow. Job went bankrupt. John the Baptist ate locusts. Peter denied Christ. The Disciples fell asleep while praying. Martha worried about everything. The Samaritan woman was divorced, more than once. Zaccheus was too short. Paul was too religious. Timothy had an ulcer… Lazarus was dead! My friend, never allow any human being to step in between you and the Lord! God has not finished with you yet. You can be a vessel He will and can use anytime, anywhere, if you make yourself available as each of the above did. Fear the Lord and He will bless you despite your circumstances. Stay blessed in Jesus’ name. [facebook] [retweet]
