“I hate the two-faced, but I love your clear-cut revelation. You’re my place of quiet retreat; I wait for your Word to renew me. Get out of my life, evildoers, so I can keep my God’s commands. Take my side as you promised; I’ll live then for sure. Don’t disappoint all my grand hopes. Stick with me and I’ll be all right; I’ll give total allegiance to your definitions of life. Expose all who drift away from your sayings; their casual idolatry is lethal. You reject earth’s wicked as so much rubbish; therefore I lovingly embrace everything you say. I shiver in awe before you; your decisions leave me speechless with reverence.”

‭‭Psalm‬ ‭119:113-120‬ ‭MSG‬‬

This blog may come across a bit heavy but it needs to be read or heard. It’s important that we come into that place, that space with being ok that not everyone can come along with you or can even be around you. Many times we are so focused on connecting and putting pieces of puzzles (people) together that we don’t realize it’s not our place or our space.

I for many years was so concerned with connecting people and working so hard to get them into this place that truly they would reject over and over again. I had to learn to be okay with the rejection of others. Did I like it … no of course not. I had to come to realize that they where not rejecting me they where rejecting what God had placed in me for them.

It’s ok…. we must learn to pray asking God for wisdom, discernment so that way we are not being fooled by one of the many tactics of the enemy uses to keep us not focused on the very God given assignment. Did you know it’s not your responsibility or my responsibility to be on top of people. It’s not! This is something I had to learn. The word of God is clear there is no confusion either your in or your not. Either your hot or your cold. Get it!

For such a long time I would carry with this frustration. I’m so excited that I was healed from it this past week at #habitation2018 I was able to accept and acknowledge that I was allowing myself to be consumed by people and there lack of not responding to God. I would allow this to even effect me emotionally and physically.

I love Psalm 119:114 where the Psalmist is saying You’re my place of quiet retreat; I wait for your Word to renew me.

This is why I say it’s your place your space!! Watch carefully who’s around and who you allow to enter not everyone can be around or know what you carry as an ambassador of Jesus Christ especially if they don’t value who He is in you.

You see we must come to a place in life where nothing matters but the Word is God! We can’t say things to keep people around us that does not align with God we would then be considered a hypocrite to God. One thing that really made me think hard was knowing that the more free and delivered a person is there is no fear or lack of boldness to share who He really is in your-life and to assure it be shared with those who will be receptive to embracing all that He has in you for them.
