One of the things I find very disturbing about what some Christians teach is that they hide under the guise or the “covering” of the church and do not have opinions or trust that God is speaking to them.
So they move only in the direction of what they’re told by leaders in the church and no longer have a mind of their own.
As someone who hears God and follows His voice I often meet Christians who say “wouldn’t it be better if you went with someone else” or a group?
As though Jesus in me is not enough and if the signs and miracles that God has worked through me isn’t evident of His presence in me and in my life.
I am often reminded of the pharisees who saw the miracles and signs yet still doubted that God could really work through one person.
They are essentially saying “you can’t trust that God can speak to one individual or work miracles through one person”.
In fact this thinking is ancient.
It’s like having a catholic priest to “confess” your sins to and atone for your sins.
But Jesus’ BLOOD IS enough.
So many Christians are taught not to trust their heart and because of this, we do not see manifestations of God as much as God intended.
The reason I see God working through me is because I trust that IT IS God speaking to me and I act upon it.
God puts every desire in your heart and ONLY BY listening to it will you essentially be listening to the spirit.
Leaders in the church have systematically taken “power” away from people by teaching this lie- that God only works through groups, not individuals and that their hearts are not to be trusted.
You see ONE head of that group who controls them and “corrects” them when they’ve gone astray.
This IS THE RELIGIOUS SPIRIT, a demonic spirit that entraps people and gets them forever stuck, to not have any voice or thought of their own but to be a mere robot that merely listens to a person or group herd mentality.
It says in the BIBLE that you have the mind of Christ when you receive Him into your heart.
GOD IS NOT AGAINST OUR DESIRES, HE PUTS DESIRES IN OUR HEARTS AND IT IS HIS LEADING.
If a man was to follow the Spirit people probably wouldn’t QUESTION that GOD is working through him, but for some reason as a woman, I have tons of people asking me that maybe I should find a person to go with, that God should send my husband so I’m not alone out here on the field (in whatever country I am in).
I’M NOT ALONE! I WAS NEVER ALONE. JESUS IS MORE PRESENT THAN ANY HUMAN BEING ON THIS EARTH.
AND HE IS WORKING POWERFULLY THROUGH ME. AND I DO NOT FEEL ALONE, though I may feel misunderstood, I SAY I AM THE RIGHTEOUSNESS of CHRIST JESUS, I AM ENOUGH IN CHRIST JESUS.
After I struggled with thoughts of lack because someone asked if I should maybe go with someone- I suddenly had all these revelations about being enough. Even in this way. Following your heart and trusting that GOD is the one in you leading you, I decided to get a henna tattoo as a reminder.
And yes that is a mosquito bite. LOL.
YOU ARE FREE, not a slave.
You are free, you are enough because of what Jesus did on the cross for you.
I had a remembrance of when I left a certain church because of legalism that someone said “I wish you came and prayed with us”.
What she really meant was “I wish I had the chance to change your mind, control you because I want you to stay and take over the worship team because I am the one leaving”.
God had already spoken to me “you’ve reach your limit here, it’s time to move on”.
Where the Spirit of the Lord is there is freedom.
Even if someone doesn’t agree with you, it’s important to listen to what your heart is telling you.
The traditional and ancient church have suppressed women by telling them that they cannot have their own thoughts or even preach. They are much mistaken and it is the PURE work of the Devil, not God. In fact there were many prophetesses in the Bible. Jesus always came to liberate women, not to judge or condemn them.
When everyone tried to condemn a prostitute, He forgave and freed them. He protected them.
I pray that this post will set you free to know that your heart is worth listening to and it is God speaking.
Sow a seed to this ministry and the work I am doing overseas to share the grace of God and bring healing to people. Your help is much appreciated and God sees your generosity!
