Are You a Servant of God?

servant 3

 

John 12:26 If anyone serves me, he must follow me; and where I am, there will my servant be also. If anyone serves me, the Father will honor him.

 

I decided to write about the subject of being a servant of Jesus Christ. Why… you might ask? Because I feel that I need and maybe we all need to remember why we remain on the earth after our salvation experience. To put it simply…we are now working for God!

A servant is a…helper, follower and supporter of an important person, one who performs duties for a person in charge, a personal attendant, worker, hired help, steward, hireling, underling, an assistant.

 

We are not to be the one in charge but a servant to the one in charge. We are not supposed to out there making a big name for ourselves but making a name for the one we serve. Our whole Christian walk is not about us and what we can get out of God. It’s about what God can get out of us. This is for our benefit in our eternal life with Him. Some may ask… why don’t we just go to heaven after we get saved? We are servants after salvation and we assist in leading others to Jesus.

 

Mark 10:44-45 and whoever wishes to be first among you shall be slave of all. 45 “For even the Son of Man did not come to be served, but to serve, and to give His life a ransom for many.”

There is a word in the above scripture verse that really quickened me down in my spirit and that word is “even”. Even Jesus who is the Son of Almighty God served. He knew His place and duty down here on earth. He knew He had a job to do for Father God. We all have a job to do for God.

The older I get and the more I pray and study God’s word I am coming to realize my purpose for my existence and reason for my earthly stay. Excuse me for putting it this way…I want to work my butt off for God!!!! Now that I know who I am and what my whole life is about I KNOW what I need and want to do. My life is dedicated to serving my husband, my 6 kids, my parents, family, friends, acquaintances and strangers.

Galatians 5:13 You, my brothers and sisters, were called to be free. But do not use your freedom to indulge the flesh; rather, serve one another humbly in love.

I need people to see Jesus in my life and the only way to show them is to do what He did:

John 13: 12-15 When he had finished washing their feet, he put on his clothes and returned to his place. “Do you understand what I have done for you?” he asked them. 13 “You call me ‘Teacher’ and ‘Lord,’ and rightly so, for that is what I am. 14 Now that I, your Lord and Teacher, have washed your feet, you also should wash one another’s feet. 15 I have set you an example that you should do as I have done for you.

Being a good servant means being keenly aware of the one that you are serving. Without knowing who’s in charge one might begin to take control of things. They might take over authority. They could abuse power that they don’t really have. Worse yet they may get puffed up and accept credit for any successes.

Paul makes it clear who he is as he makes these statements several times in the bible…” Paul, a servant of God and an apostle of Jesus Christ.” “Paul, a servant of Christ Jesus”.

John the Baptist made this statement:

Act 13:25 As John was completing his work, he said: ‘Who do you suppose I am? I am not the one you are looking for. But there is one coming after me whose sandals I am not worthy to untie.

See people will try to follow you because John said “who do you suppose that I am.” He knew that they what they were thinking about him and that they might want to follow him. But John was a Worker and was trying to complete his job here on earth. He could have taken a little credit here and told these men to come and join his group but instead he told them of the master… his employer. He humbled himself by saying he was unworthy to even tie His employers shoes. What a servant John was!

Jesus mother Mary said this:

“I am the Lord’s servant,” Mary answered. “May your word to me be fulfilled.” Then the angel left her. Luke 1:18

What a woman of God! There was no doubt that she knew what she was!

The bible says we must be a servant and the Holy Spirit will help us accomplish this task all day every day. God WILL honor you us serving. We will be rewarded too.

Don’t follow anyone who is looking for praise and adoration, but stick around with those with a humble and giving spirit. You don’t even need a lot of discernment for this…you will just know the difference between who wants to be served and who is serving.

servant 1

I’m seeing a vision right now….I see the Jesus high and lifted up and there is a very long servantline of people standing in front of Him.   They have servant’s outfits on with a towel on one arm and the other behind their back. They are saying…. “What can I do for you my Lord?” Jesus says something to each one and they leave Him. I asked Jesus what did He say to them and He said He told them to obey the word. He said He has told everyone what to do already. He said everyone was born with gifts and talents and then when we accept Him as Lord and Savior the Holy Spirit has been leading us from day one. We must obey God.

Checklist for our job as a servant of God:

  1. We all have a gifts and talents naturally given to us by God. Think about yours.
  2. The bible gives us clear instruction in what we are to do for the kingdom. If we don’t know what to do start by finding out what the bible says we should do.
  3. Walk with God so you will find it much easier to hear Gods voice when He by way of the Holy Spirit gives you direct orders for His divine purpose or mission.
  4. Make sure you are always prepared and ready to serve. Know your word, have tracks and bibles available, have your testimony ready and be prepared to share it, have a sharp eye for those divine appointments…in other words look for opportunities kingdom work.
  5. Make sure your house is in order. Have you ever seen a beautician with her hair looking busted and she wants to do your hair? We represent the King of Kings. You don’t need a Louis Vuitton handbag to witness to someone but a clean, humble, willing and dedicated heart.
  6. Be willing to do dirty work. God may not start you at the top. He may want to see if you’ll be faithful with smaller task until He sees that He can trust you.
  7. Let love be your motivation in all that you do for Him. Have love for Him and love for others.

Looking back over the past day, week, month year(s) can you really say what you’ve done for the Lord? Maybe a little, a lot or nothing at all. We need to take our Christianity seriously. Being a servant is what a Christian is and who a Christian is. I pray this blog today will cause one to ponder and make adjustment if necessary. God bless you!

Do Ya’ll know where I work?

work

I just got a fresh revelation:

And He, when He comes, will convict the world concerning sin and righteousness and judgment; 9 concerning sin, because they do not believe in Me;…John 16:8

He is the Holy Spirit.

The job of witnessing to the unsaved has already been accomplished by the Holy Spirit!! They already got the heads up….they got the memo about Jesus!!  So when we approach them they are already under heavy conviction!!  Oh how God loves his creations and they just reject him.  So non believers….they know… because the Holy spirit is already giving them pressure!  They are being rebellious!!!  THEY ARE TRULY WITHOUT EXCUSE!!!!

By the time we get to them they have been already telling God no for all their lives.

At some point we might get to witness to one of the unsaved whose heart is sufficiently softened and they finally want to believe!  I’m determined to find these people.  My heart breaks for people who reject God’s precious gift of Jesus who died because He loved them so much! God has done everything from sending the Holy Spirit to making it so that the earth itself reveals God.  Then God uses other Christians to reach out to them on top of all that!!   Again…THEY ARE TRULY WITHOUT EXCUSE!!!!work 3

These people don’t believe the good news or even want to hear about it.  But we…me and you…are walking billboards for Jesus with invisible signs on our chest saying…follow me to Jesus!  They don’t know that we are Christ workers empowered by the Holy Spirit to be representatives for the kingdom.  We walk around in stealth mode emitting an anointing of Christ love for them.  We zap them with our spiritual stun guns and either they fall down and come up new or they just shake it off and walk away.work gun

I punch in everyday for this job and work all day.  Pay is low now… but it has a GREAT pension plan!  I’ll be able to retire and live a GREAT life in the future.  In the meantime I must get back to work so talk to you later!

What in hell is going on?

Wrote this blog in 2011 but I feel I need to reshare because the devil plans for us has not changed and we need to be alert and be prepared so we can get the victory!!! Don’t be scared…don’t be fearful, be informed.

God Speaks I Listen

1 Peter 5:8  Be alert and of sober mind. Your enemy the devil prowls around like a roaring lion looking for someone to devour.

I woke up this morning feeling I am in a battle. Well I am and you are too. Although I’m feeling this battle all around me I know I’m equipped for this battle. I feel the presence of the Holy Spirit, I have the Rhema word hidden in my heart, I know there are angels all around me Jesus has already won the battle , He intercedes to God on my behalf and I KNOW God is watching over me! Wouldn’t you say I’m covered?

Our enemy is real and He is the devil AKA satan.  Do you want to know what in Hell is going on? Well the devil is causing a lot of chaos this year 2011. Everywhere you turn you can see his…

The Choices we make

choice 3

 

choice 4

I’ve been thinking a lot about the choices in life we humans have to make. A choice that we all have to make at some point in our lives is… should we chose Verizon wireless, AT&T, Sprint or Metro PCS! LOL!

Eve and Adam made a choice that affected all of us!! Not in a good way either!  Yeah… Eve made the choice first let’s list the blame in the right order.

The first choice we all ever made was to obey or disobey our parents. We were taught the difference between right and wrong.   At an early age we learned that our actions had repercussions. Our next important choice was when we heard about God and Jesus and we chose whether we were going to follow that lead or go another way. Some people were raised in situations that guided them on a different path but ultimately we all come across the story of Jesus Christ and decide to go with that, another god or no god.

Proverbs 21:19 Many plans are in a man’s heart, But the counsel of the LORD will stand.choice 1

But there are many other choices in life we also have to make. As they say we only have one life to live and will we make good choices for ourselves or bad choices? Most humans make a combination of good and bad choices.   God made a very good choice to create us. We were perfect in His mind and then we made a transition to a human body on earth and things drastically changed. We got…”free will”. Free will to make our own choices in life. What a responsibility!!! I would have rather had God make all my decisions but Gods plan for us doesn’t work that way.

One decision can change a person’s life for better or for worse. Many people sitting in jail are probably thinking about that. Many married people may think about that. Drug addicts and alcoholics I’m sure have thought about that. Zillions of people after their death will think about the choices they made.

Proverbs 14:12 There is a way that appears to be right, but in the end it leads to death.

Every day we have to make choices like what to eat, where to go and what to say. As a Christian I need the power of the Holy Spirit living inside of me to help me make good choices but being the human I am and having a nature that involves my flesh… I know that I’m susceptible of making some bad choices. This is why I must obey this scripture verse… walk by the Spirit, and you will not gratify the desires of the flesh. (Galatians 5:16)

I myself am going to try to make better choices in every area of my life…like:

choice 2

In all your ways submit to Him, and He will make your paths straight.  Prov. 3:6

 

 

  1. Food
  2. Money
  3. Friends, family and acquaintances
  4. What comes out of my mouth
  5. My actions
  6. My time
  7. Prayer time, mediation and Bible studying

I can achieve this goal with the help of the Lord!!!

The choices we make can severely affect our lives… especially our spiritual and eternal life. We alone are responsible for the choices that we make.

Father God…I pray for everyone who reads this blog today that they will be more aware of the choices they make in life. Myself included. Thank you Lord for giving us the bible and Holy Spirit to help us make good choices. Thank you for gently leading us back to a better place when we’ve made choices that wasn’t good for us or others.

God… for those who have made a choice not to believe in you and your Son Jesus…I pray for their mind to consider their choice and be open to the good news that Holy Spirit conveys to their heart, mind and spirit. I ask all this in Jesus name…Amen.

John 14:26 But the Advocate, the Holy Spirit, whom the Father will send in my name, will teach you all things and will remind you of everything I have said to you.

Hungering for God

hungry 4 God

 

Psalm 63:1 A psalm of David. When he was in the Desert of Judah. You, God, are my God, earnestly I seek you; I thirst for you, my whole being longs for you, in a dry and parched land where there is no water.

I think I have always been hungry for God. I feel it is part of my DNA. My earliest memory of God is at the age of about 4 years old in Sunday school. I feel like I’ve always known that God is real. I accepted Jesus as my Lord and Savior at 12 years old. But it wasn’t until I became a committed Christion nearly 30 years later that I craved God so bad that it caused me to pray for about 8 hours a day every day for about 10 years.

When I found out that I could really talk to God that much and He would interact like that with me….I wanted to talk to Him all day every day! The following scripture verse is the scripture that triggered off this great reaction in me: 1 Corinthians 2:10 these are the things God has revealed to us by his Spirit. The Spirit searches all things, even the deep things of God..…hungry 4 God 2

That scripture verse helped me realize that the Holy Spirit in me can reveal the deep things of God. So I was like “God…I want to know everything about you that you can tell me!” I tried to go as deep into God as a human being could go and still remain on earth. I told God I wasn’t afraid of Him showing me stuff and that I believed everything the bible said about Him. I tried to read everything in the bible that described His personality and attributes.

I just could not get enough of God and that caused me to pray longer and harder. Psalms 42:1 For the director of music. A maskil of the Sons of Korah. As the deer pants for streams of water, so my soul pants for you, my God.

My mother and mother in law thought I was a little crazy. My pastor’s wife told me that I prayed to hard. I was having lots of visions and unusual manifestations. I went to a local Christian book store and asked the clerk did she have a book on unusual manifestations of the Holy Spirit and she look at me like I was crazy. Another worker pulled me to the side and asked me what I was experiencing. She said she’d heard of it before and owned a collection of books from a woman who had similar experiences. She said she would send me a book from her collection and when I send it back she would send me the next one. After reading these books I knew I was on the right track and continued with my quest for more of God.

hungry 4 God 3

I crave you God!!  I’m so hungry for you!!

 

I’M NOT SPECIAL!!!!! God will reveal Himself to whomever wants to experience more of Him.   A very unusual thing happened to Christians on the day of Pentecost.  They were filled with the Holy Ghost! We have the third person of the trinity inside of us. Wow!! We are inhabited by the Holy Spirit!  We can interact with God all day every day!!!!! Do you realize the intimacy we have with God? We can know Him intimately!!! Personally!! God doesn’t and won’t MAKE us have this relationship…we must WANT to have it with Him. We must hunger after him if we want to know Him. Matthew 5:6 Blessed are those who hunger and thirst for righteousness, for they will be filled.

 

Have you ever had to fast for a blood test? When that test was over you were starving. Or what about how we intentionally fast before the Thanksgiving meal so that we can pig out. All that food before us and we can hardly wait for the blessing to be said so we can devour all that great food. Well that’s how I feel about God. I could just devour him!!!!!!! I dream of the day when I will no longer hunger for Him because I will be with Him!!!

How is your passion for God? Don’t just view Him as the man upstairs because you will not be able to see yourself with Him now. He must be the man in here (I’m pointing to my insides) in your “mind”. Our interaction with God is in our mind for the main connection and the Holy Spirit will fill us up for a full bodily experience. But again…we have to hunger for God. He is always paying to attention to us. We have to pay attention to Him.

hungry 4 God 1

Don’t wait until you get to heaven to have a close relationship with God…impress Him now with your hungering after Him! He will be so impressed that He will pour Himself out on you and you will experience Him. Some people’s excuse is that they are scared of the Holy Spirit. Some people have misrepresented the actions of the Holy Spirit…but God never makes anyone feel uncomfortable and He never makes a fool out of Himself. He’s too supernaturally intelligent for that.

So feel free to hunger for as much of God as you want!! Fill up! Psalms 107:9 for he satisfies the thirsty and fills the hungry with good things.

I just came out of my prayer closet and God told me time is running out!  I saw this alert sign.

 

1.For those who are His children…time is running out before Jesus return.  Time is running out to win the lost.  Time is running out to do what God asked you to do in the holy bible. Time is running out!

2.For those who are not  Christians…time is running out to make that choice to repent and make Jesus your Lord and Savior. Time is running out!

 

I saw a vision of a clock and I can hear the ticking is very loud.alert1

This is no joke…no time to play games.  Life threatening situations are happening more frequently and getting more dangerous by the minute.  No need to fear just do what you need to do.

Time is running out!

God speaks I listen…….
