The Dream & The Process

Wherever you are at this moment, think about the time when you dreamed a dream that was beyond what you currently saw at the moment (but you knew it was achievable). Now think about the time when you actually achieved that dream when all odds were against you (to include family & friends). What were your emotions like? Did you feel like you could accomplish any challenge that you would face in the future? Did you feel like you were on top of the world?

The purpose of having you think on when you dreamed big is because many people have stopped dreaming (due to the current state of the economy, complacency, or having deadbeat friends and family trying to keep you inside their little box). I want you to be open to His Spirit to let Him speak to your spirit. He knows what you’re ordained to do and for many of you, it’s beyond what you currently see. Don’t let this world stop you (and it will throw anything it can to stop you).

Now, I need to qualify what I have been saying because there are people who ARE dreaming big, but then they want to penalize God because it’s not happening on their timetable (typically within 24 hours). Let’s be realistic for a moment, if you have goals (something simple such as getting out of debt, or losing weight), don’t think that you’ll reach your goal in 24 hours. It’s going to be a process (and of course, I can’t say how long the process will be) and I won’t promise you that it will be easy. But if you can find joy when you’re going through the process; that will determine how hard you’ll rejoice when you reach the end of your goal!

In summary: keep dreaming, and rejoice in the process. Many trials we will go through, but we will be delivered by Him in due time!


The Mayne Man

Are You Seeking Acceptance From Man or God?

I was asked by a dear friend of mine to share this with you all. I initially shared it with my inner circle when  God spoke this to my heart (around 8:30am on 10/5/13). So, here it goes.

God just revealed something to me that hit home. All of my life, I longed to be accepted. I tried getting it from my family (I got it as long as it fit their mode of operation), I tried getting it through my gifts (some would backfire). Today, I find that as long as I am accepted by Jesus is all that I need acceptance from.

For my calling (and for others with a calling this serious), rejection is expected and many sufferings will be in order. Sadly, many people don't want to bear burdens because of pride. And the sleeping church will league with those with pride issues. We have problems and don't want to share burdens. We don't share because we will face ridicule from prideful people (causing us to feel more condemned). We don't share because we'll receive a deaf ear. Apparently, we're to only need God; however, we do have to listen to their problems. Another reason we don't share is because the same people who want us to open up will be the same ones to make a spectacle out of us and to boost their righteousness over us.

Final revelation: many people will say we have to ask the wrong doer to forgive us when we were abused, neglected, almost to make us feel that we caused it. Of course, this should sound absurd, but we still inflict this on people who need a touch from God. Yes, Jesus took on things He didn't do for our sake, but we're not Jesus. Granted, I got in trouble growing up for things I didn't even do (it was all blamed on me). One thing that comes to mind is the time when one of my relatives who lived with me stole money from the money collected from my cookie sales that people ordered. It has taught me now to be very ethical with how I conduct business with others. So finding acceptance from my family was more difficult. Again, I know now that acceptance only comes from God alone. The world will view us as failures and will want us to bow down to it's acceptance.

So what is the underlying message to this: each person must look to Jesus for acceptance and to determine who you share your most intimate issues with. Not everyone who says that are for you ARE (even in the church world). As Jesus pulled away, sometimes we must do the same thing. People will want to take offense before coming to you to resolve the offense (or they'll tell you they were offended and write you off because they are holier than you). As brothers/sisters, we can't afford to live ourselves to the point that we throw fellow brothers/sisters to the wolves (as open prey to the devil). If God has called someone to something important which requires rejection and suffering, prayer & intercession is necessary (not writing them off). And for us to side with people like that is saying, I agree with writing them off. We all have our quirks, but we should always see the best in people (and not league with the devil by seeing the worst in them). If we can say death and life are in the power of the tongue, we must be truthful at all costs, but discern where a person is in their lives. It's not a one size fits all.

How Cinderella Inherited Her Promise

Hebrews 6:11-12 says this: And we desire each one of you to show the same earnestness to have the full assurance of hope until the end, so that you may not be sluggish, but imitators of those who through faith and patience inherit the promises.

Now many of you know the end of Cinderella that she ends up with Prince Charming. Getting there wasn’t easy for Cinderella. There are many things we can learn from this Disney classic. I can tell you that she was not sluggish by any means and that she did have her moments, but she was patient and she inherited her promise. I could just end it here, but I want to highlight a few things in detail.

Cinderella wasn’t liked by her step family (it was obvious as to how they treated her). Her step family thought they were all that and a bag of chips (their hearts were pure ugly – and in some books, they even appeared ugly on the exterior). Like any woman would, they want to be with the man of the hour (in this case, it was Prince Charming). What the step family didn’t realize was that Prince Charming was promised to Cinderella. And like the enemy, he knows what is promised to us (on earth but more importantly our spiritual promise), and is going to do what he can to ensure that we don’t inherit that promise. Cinderella’s punishment for being her was to clean up the house. Now Cinderella could’ve protested and said that she was not going to clean up as a result of their treatment towards her, but she was faithful to do whatever earthly task she had to do. The key word in my prior sentence is “faithful.”

The mice were a god-send to Cinderella, and Cinderella loved the mice. The step family threw away things that seemed insignificant, and the mice made a dress out of those things. See, that’s the beauty of God, He can make something beautiful of what we may think is insignificant. When the step family saw it, they thought they could seal Cinderella’s destiny in that she’s not going by ripping up that dress. And like Cinderella, we have our moments and wonder is God going to come through by saying “I’m faithful with my tasks and being patient as long as I can without losing my mind ‘up in here’.”

And we know that when God comes through, He just does it. And He did that for Cinderella by sending the fairy godmother to her. She confirmed that she is going to the ball (in other words, like the angel told Mary that “you have found favor”). Her dress was 5x better than what the mice made and the mice would be the ones who would transport her to the ball in a pumpkin. What stands out to me: God’s ways are always better than our ways. The dress that she would go to the ball in was way better than the dress that was made from items that belonged to heathen.

Now we have the shoe incident. Who did the glass shoe belong to? I’m sure the step family knew who it belonged to, that’s why they made it so clear when Cinderella was locked away upstairs in a room. See, what the devil doesn’t realize is that when God promises something, he can’t stop it especially when we’re patient and walking by faith. The man had to have the spirit of God in him to call Cinderella down from that locked room (kind of reflective of when Samuel wanted David to come from the field to see if that’s who God chose to be king of Israel). And yes, the shoe fit on Cinderella and they lived happily ever after.

So this is how Cinderella inherited her promise. Just remember when you are promised something from God (and we are spiritually), never get cocky with it and always remain humble & grateful.
