Good Morning and Happy Friday!
Well we have made it to the end of the first work week of 2010! (Thank you Lord) I do not know how your week went, but mine was FULL of TEST. But you all know how that story goes, when there is a test a testimony is around the corner! I am waiting on my testimony, and I know it is not far away.
I know and fully understand that the majority of the things that I go through in life are not just for me. Most of the times they are for those who connect with me weekly through Friday Meditation: Family members, Coworkers, Friends, Associates, Enemies, and so forth.
On last week, I told the enemy that I was no longer going to fall for the same tricks! So this week, he presented a new one. For the past month the enemy had been setting a plot to get me at work. (Wow I need to keep writing because the enemy just tried to tell me not to talk about this!) LISTEN! Sometimes God will take people that you trust and allow them to mess over you, so that you can learn to trust Him MORE! I have stood strong for several weeks, while I watch the enemy try to destroy my integrity and drag my name in the mud. I was warned by several people to be careful because that person that I once trusted was out to get me (I thought mess like this ended at MERCY, but adults do it to). I took these warning and I literally began to call the enemy out in PRIVATE (hear that privately… I didn’t go to the person or cause a scene at work… that is what the enemy wants you to do), I told the ENEMY that “NO WEAPON FORMED AGAINST ME SHALL PROSPER” (he need to be reminded), “GREATER IS HE THAT IS IN ME THAN HE THAT IS IN THE WORLD” (tell yourself that one so you will not react like the world wants you to react to the enemy), “HE WILL NEVER LEAVE ME OR FORSAKE ME”, “IF GOD IS FOR ME WHO CAN BE AGAINST ME”, “I HAVE NEVER SEEN THE RIGHTEOUS FORSAKEN…”. I sang songs like “Let God ARISE and My ENEMIES be SCATTERED”. I even prayed the BLOOD of Jesus over the situation before the mess surfaced. And let me tell you it tried to surface this week, but the enemy was already defeated before he began.
So this Friday we are going to take a minute and meditate on the benefits of being a servant!
Isaiah 54:17 No weapon formed against you will prevail and you will refute every tongue that accuses you. This is the heritage of the servants of the Lord, and this is their vindication from me, declares the Lord!
Right now everyone that is a servant of the Lord should be shouting! The prophet Isaiah was describing in the 49th- 54th chapter the redemption through the servant. And in the 54th chapter he described salvation and the benefits of it. See God wants you to know that if you serve Him he will be your protection. Not only will every weapon that is formed against you NOT WORK, but everyone who speaks, plots, tries to discredit your name … it will be proven FALSE (refuted)! (THANK YOU JESUS)! I believe that it is time for some people to begin serving the KING! The prophet Isaiah goes on to say… that this is OUR heritage, our inheritance, our legacy, our tradition, our custom… See no matter what people do to you if you are a servant of the LORD they cannot take your protection, because it has YOUR NAME ON IT! Not just that but Isaiah tells us that our INHERITANCE is our VINDICATION, proof, justification, evidence, acquittal (your release)! If you’re a Servant you need to tell the ENEMY… IT WON’T WORK!
So let me tell you today that no matter what you are going through in life, no matter who is trying to sabotage your name, discredit you, tear you down, destroy your integrity, and break you down, just remember that the ENEMY has ALREADY been DEFEATED! And guess what? You WIN! (Someone needs to stop and praise God right now for the VICTORY).
I want you to know this week that no matter what the enemy is trying to do to sabotage you, “HE will be DEFEATED”. I told my Regional Director this week (yea I had to go to the top to stop the enemy) that I was not going to worry about this allegation against me, because the Bible tells me that “the Man of Integrity WALKS securely, but he who takes crooked paths will be found out “(Proverbs 10:9) Before we pray can I tell you the end of the situation… I WON! Not only did the RD believe me, but the person who tried to discredit my name has left me ALONE, there will be no investigation, or no write up! See no matter how much power a person thinks they have over your life or situation, when you are a SERVANT of the LORD and you have done nothing wrong… you will PREVAIL!
God I thank you for this lesson that you have taught us this week. For the trials that we have to go through, for showing us that the only person we can depend on in life is you! Thank you for allowing us to be your servants. Give us the peace that passes all understand, even when there is chaos surrounding us! Give us the mind to serve you! Thank you for protecting us from the weapons of the enemy! Keep our minds stayed on you. And God right now we pray for our enemies. May they learn to follow you and trust you! That they realize that they need to also be your servant! Soften their hearts, teach them how to love others, teach them how to treat others, and Lord teach us how to love them and treat them too. Allow them to see the JESUS in us, and continue to remind us that we may be the ONLY JESUS that they see! Thank you LORD! We LOVE YOU! AMEN!
For those who want to become a part of this HERITAGE, I offer you JESUS CHRIST today! HE will SAVE You!
Well Family… I love you! Do me a favor and take a moment and pray for me! Thank you!
SERVANT of the Lord,
