So many gifted Christians are wavering between two influences in their life. They pray for me but both good and evil spiritual forces flow from them. Two streams from one fountain. The wavering happens because they are not cleaned up. I have struggled with this terribly in my life – no one is immune.
I prayed for two people at church yesterday who are going through the same thing. I probably saw it in 5 yesterday alone. If I had the time and inclination I could list about 30 people I know who are going through this. I see it in SO MANY bloggers.
When I was struggling so much, I cried out to God for a quick exit, but He made it clear that if I took a shortcut out, I would not be able to teach others how to get out of the same predicament. I had to seek Him and read the bible to find the solution. He gave me a hint, He said: “when you know what Jesus did for you, you will be free”. He was right (of course). I have got clean and I have blogged about how you can get clean: New Covenant
It’s a sifting. God is sifting His kids. A time of testing. He has given out enormous gifts… I look around the church and I see a veritable WARRIOR NATION, but in order to choose who goes to fights (many are called, few are chosen). To choose, He sifts us.
There are some solutions to this:
- Believe what He has said in the bible, if He said He is the Creator, believe it. If He said He has all authority, believe it. If He said that He has cancelled all the debt against us and nailed it to His cross – BELIEVE it.
- Read the bible until you understand His character, that makes it easier to know what is “of Him”
- Understand what Jesus did for you and get into it!
Or, you can hide away in the corner and ignore the whole issue. 🙂
