When There is Simply no Point

Have you ever tried to worship God…tried to pray out loud at church…or even, be about to share the word…only to have the Holy Spirit challenge you about talking to a family member, a brother or sister in Christ, or even God, Himself, before you do it?

There can be times when we try to offer ourselves as a “sacrifice” when in public or amongst fellow believers. We can even become extra exuberant in our efforts to try and cover up our internal character flaws

I remember that God had given me a word to share, but my heart was not right before the Lord after a disagreement earlier in the day, so the Holy Spirit directed me to phone that person to sort out any issues, before speaking out that prophetic word

Proverbs 21:3 reminds us that all of the external “performances” are useless against a God that looks straight at our hearts

God won’t be bribed with our generosity with gifts to others, or even our gifts to the church, when there are circumstances in our own lives that need to be walked out with Christ

Friends, God will always want us to do the “right” thing within all aspects of our lives because it not only glorifies Him, but it stops the enemy from having a foothold to try and destroy us when the opportunity arises

So, I encourage us, today, to spend time with God, and ask Him to “test” our hearts and motives, to reveal any areas that need to receive forgiveness, because then, when we see a ”need” within our communities, families, or church, God will accept that offering, with love

To do what is right and just is more acceptable to the LORD than sacrifice

Proverbs 21:3

My hearts desire is for everyone to have an intimate relationship with Christ. To hear the voice of God and to experience His presence. Also, to help disciple others to discover their purpose within the body of Christ - through the power of the Holy Spirit.

My God-given dream is to break down barriers within life and the Church as a whole to strengthen and develop relationships within every denomination and bring unity - so that we will collectively raise up together and fulfil the Great Commission, within this lifetime.

I am living proof that no matter what your past was or whatever your life has become - God will use you to fulfil what He created you to do, when you step out in obedience and faith.
