Doing God's Work.....Lord prepare me

Good day all!! I hope this finds all well. As I have been praying and searching deep about what to blog on today, I had a song continually going on in my mind as I am so focused on what way to go with where God wants me. As you read the blog for today I want you to search and see if you are going in the direction of which God wants you going.

Many times in life things happen that we aren't sure of why we were chosen to do it. It’s scary and we wonder what in the heck are we doing. In the lines of normal situations many ask how or why. Take a moment though if you will and imagine what it would be like if it was totally out of the "normal” realm…..say if you will a miracle of God. How would you respond? Would you freak out and run away from it or would you pray that God would prepare you to be a sanctuary for Him? To be able to go forth and pull out what He wants you to do. Well, I can truly share that this has happened with me. I will not go into complete and full details until the time this work is fulfilled, but let me just say that when you are selected to prepare to be a living sanctuary for God it is humbling but it can be overwhelming as well. You wonder what is happening, why it is happening, how it happening, and finally WHEN will it happen.

 Mine all began when I was fifteen years old. I had been in church all my life and I had been saved, but I had a problem of getting baptized because I was terrified of water. I had been shoved into water at a very young age and thus getting me near water was like pulling teeth. I knew about God and I knew about Jesus but I had not completed what I called the "whole enchilada”. Each time the topic of baptism came up, I panicked because even though I truly wanted and knew I needed God in my life, I was terrified to be put under water (something that the enemy was detouring me from as he knew what was coming). I continued to talk to my family about it and praying about it, but it was at the age of fifteen it ALL     hit.  When I was a lot younger that I had a Pentecostal preacher pray over me. If you are not aware of how or way the Pentecostal /Assemblies pray I will say they are true to the following of James 5:14 when praying for the sick. She at that time told my family that I was a special young lady and at that time would prophecy over me that I was going to be used to further God’s kingdom and do His work and will. Let alone, did I realize what was coming? I was fifteen and I had been lying in bed one night – sleeping soundly- when I heard the voice of the Holy Spirit explain to me what I needed to do in order to prepare to become the sanctuary God wanted me to be. I had been shown something which looked like a slow moving picture of me and young man. I heard the Holy Spirit tell me not to be afraid, go forth and do what was needed to be done in order to fulfill the job God had for me. I was told that many of my family and friends would be married and having families before I was, that I was to complete many different test and trials before the truth came to pass, but that the young man in the vision was someone who I had no clue of who he was, I didn’t fit his class nor did he fit mine according the standards of what society saw it as in the time it was happening; that he was to be well known and how we would come to meet at first would be a way unto which this world would not understand…not even myself at first. I was told to continue to fight through the obstacles in which Satan would through into my way and rely on God. I was also told that there would be times into which I would want to quit and give up on the whole thing but just continue to rely on God and I would see things coming to pass. I was unsure of exactly how to react to it but I kept it close to my heart until now. I did as I was instructed with the first thing being getting baptized. So, at the age of eighteen, the fall of my senior year in high school, I completed my promise to God and was baptized with a cousin. I would continue moving forward and experiencing the trials and tribulations of all that has come but I leaned on and continue to lean solely on God. Yes, I have seen the signs in which the Holy Spirit would warn me of coming to pass and I see everything taking place. Granted, it has not completed its course; it has tried a few times but Satan tends to step in and does not allow it to complete BUT keep in mind that God does and will prevail over Satan, thus I do believe and continue to believe this work of God is and will come to pass. So you ask how this can and preparing ourselves to become sanctuary’s for God be. In looking back at the book of Romans remember that this is the book of the Bible which teaches us on faith and life. Paul explains in his letter of the wonderful plan in which God has for redeeming his people; setting them free for service through the power of his spirit. In Chapter eight we are taught how to answer this question. We are told that in order to prepare to be the sanctuary for God that we have to truly prepare ourselves and our hearts. We are instructed as such:

                    27- And he who searches our hearts knows the

                            mind of the spirit, because the spirit intercedes

                             for God’s people in accordance to the will of God.

                   28- And we know that in all things God works for the   

                       good of  those who love him, who have been 

                       called according to his purpose. 

                 29 - For those God foreknew he also predestined to be conformed

                     to the image of his Son, that he might be the firstborn among

                     many brothers and sisters.

                 30 And those he predestined, he also called; those he called,                

                    he also justified; those he justified, he also glorified.

                  31- What, then, shall we say in response to these things? If    

                       God is for us, who can be against us?

So as you can see what I have described to you above can and does happen; it especially happens when you are a miracle child of God. Let me clarify first and foremost that no, it’s not only the miracle children of God that this can happen to. If you have accepted Christ and doing as you have been instructed by him, then it is for all. The miracle children I speak of however are those of us who shouldn't even be alive; who struggled to be here yet God allowed us to stay so that we could do His work. So, I ask you all this….are you preparing to be a sanctuary for God? Are you allowing Him to work with and through you? No matter how scary or how terrifying something may seem; no matter how unreal something may truly seem ,know that if God’s hand is in it and moving it forward, then no one….not even us….have a say in what is taking place or happening. For when we are doing God’s work and He is preparing us to be a sanctuary for Him, we need to set back, take hold of the reigns, and let Him guide. Don’t fight it and DON’T…. I repeat DON’T try to deny it. For when you do it only makes you have to wait that much longer. So are you doing God’s work? Are you allowing Him to prepare you to be the sanctuary He wants you to be? I know I am, so all I can say is, join us and hold on for the ride.  Remember if you are interested in a copy of the book or would like for me to speak at your church, school, group, or organization you can find all the contact info on the front of this website.

God Bless and keep you all-                                                     

In Christ-
