Anything but ordinary

God said to me,
"You need to take your eyes off them so they don't color the word...just as I say is enough"

Philippians 4:6
"Do not worry about anything, but pray and ask God for everything you need, always giving thanks"

I have been preoccupied for weeks
When I am not blogging you know my mind is on something else.

My meditation scripture for today is Philippians 4:6
I don't want to be among the people talking, I want to be among the listeners
When I talk too much, I fail to listen to the voice I should be focused on

What part of Philippians 4:6 don't I understand?
Father I thank You for grace to stay out of church politics, Grace o!

"Do not worry about anything..."
Yeah, the world is calling me everyday with all kinds of things, it draws me into living an ordinary life, it calls me through my eye gate, ear gate, mouth gate, it wants me to think I am simply human when my spirit knows that I am more than a man, I am a god on this earth. Yes I said it. Eat your heart out nigga  I am supposed to take my mind off them abi, I will try No I will take my mind off them and put it on the word.

...but pray and ask God for everything you need...
God knows everything I need and I have asked but that is not the reason I have proof abi evidence of the things I have asked. I have them because my Father loves me perfectly. I am not going to embellish this any further than that.

always giving thanks.
I give thanks to my Father daily. It is a part of me experientially now. I remember the time I used to criticize everything about me. Thank God those days are gone. I don't have those issues anymore, I can safely say that God's grace has carried me thus far and He is still on moi!

Spiritual eyes...

Two things that amaze me

Jairus and recognizing divinity in Jesus

I want to think like the world briefly to explain Jairus ‘predicament. Jairus has a twelve year old daughter who was ill and at the point of death. Now the bible does not say what Jairus’ idea of Jesus was before his daughter fell ill but he had certainly heard about Jesus. All kinds of people talked about Him and the good that He did (you know those who have experienced His goodness like me) and they also talked about what they considered His badness (the people who had experienced his shining like the Pharisees) they talked about his eating and drinking with sinners, they called him traitor, drunkard, friends of sinners and everything that went against their religion. But when Jairus daughter was at the point of death, Jairus went looking for this man Jesus.

You might not know the gravity of what Jairus did if you did not understand that Jairus was a leader of the synagogue. The synagogue were the Jews who were pissed that Jesus was making himself equal with God and they were convinced that he was doing His wonders by Beelzebub; they were planning to kill him and even attacked him a couple of times but Jesus always slipped out among them.
Jairus went into the public streets and bowed before Jesus, he put His confidence in the kindness of Jesus and he acknowledged His divinity. Jews bow to no one (Do you remember Mordecai from the book of Esther and the story of the three Hebrew boys; they are pretty popular because of their stand), well Jairus publicly acknowledged that Jesus was God.

I have two questions for you
1.      Have you acknowledged publicly that Jesus is God?
2.      What does that mean to you?

There is a grace that sustains and there is a grace that brings one out of situations, you need to be able to look out for the two and recognize them when you see it.


To be cont’d (I didn't get around to saying the second thing that amazed me about Jairus)
