Limping Into Dancing Part 2

Posted: March 3, 2015 in Uncategorized

Recently I have gone through the most difficult periods of my life and ministry. Some problems were due to my own negligence, oversight and stupidity. While some at the hands of those who were supposed to be on my team and have my back. The good old America way is stomp em while they are down, and exploit any and every situation for your own good. We have not so learned Christ.

If your troubles came at the hand of others it often seems they are getting by without any consequences while you suffer. People often move on without regard to your influence or help, as if they can erase you from their mind and life. Jesus experienced this, while on his way to Jerusalem between Samaria and Galilee. Ten lepers came to Jesus and he told them to go show themselves to the priest and while they were traveling they were cleansed. Scripture says in (Luke 17:15-19) “Then one of them, when he saw that he was healed, turned back, praising God with a loud voice; 16 and he fell on his face at Jesus’ feet, giving him thanks. Now he was a Samaritan. 17 Then Jesus answered, “Were not ten cleansed? Where are the nine? 18 Was no one found to return and give praise to God except this foreigner?” 19 And he said to him, “Rise and go your way; your faith has made you well.” Only one of the ten returned to praise Jesus. People tend to forget who and how they got where they are at, without any regard for whom set them up. If you are facing this remember God knows, God cares, and God never forgets. I have a saying that needs to be remembered at this point “God don’t always settle up on Friday night”. Maybe you’re limping, and it feels like others are dancing at your expense, hold on and get your eyes off man and onto the Lord. Just give him some time, you may still limp but through his grace it will look like dancing.

    The last two sentences of this touched my soul more than you could know. Where man may see a limp, God sees one of His Children dancing for His glory. God’s perspective is most important, the only one to concern myself with. I need to meditate on this daily.
