Can’t

Last weekend I was feeling a bit overwhelmed.

Sunday, I just wanted to watch a movie and make all the aching stop, but as I turned the movie on, I looked on at the time stamp that read  two hours and said, “no, I can’t!” 

time

I then reasoned that if I was willing to take time to watch a movie, I’ll just take the time and spend it with God instead of working. 

I guess that shows you I had spending time with God below spending time on work.

Anyway, I started watching teaching on the fear of the Lord by John Bevere, and I was struck. I realized I wasn’t respecting the Lord as I should, and I was doing things with my own strength.

HONESTLY, how many times do I have to learn this?!

seriously

I want to take this seriously this time. I am taking as much time as I need. Work is paused until I understand the fear of the Lord, how to harmonize it with grace, and how to apply it to my life. 

I need a change. 

I need God to work through me, not me work for God. I need power in what I do. I need to work in grace, not work out of my own strength.

 

I have to teach in the anointing, or everything I do and say will fall flat. The fear of the Lord is the missing key in my life. Sadly I have more of the fear of the Lord than many in the church, yet I am significantly lacking.

 And all people of the earth shall see that thou art called by the name of the Lord, and they shall be afraid of thee.

Deuteronomy 28:10

the fear of the Lord

I was leaning too far on the grace side, and I believe that’s why so many Charis Bible College students graduate without much change. That school needs the fear of the Lord on a greater level. I did one and a half years and didn’t grasp the fear of the Lord. That’s three-fourths of the way to graduation, and I had thought that if God told me to do something, it was optional because we are in grace. I know that sounds idiotic when I type it out or say it out loud, but though that didn’t make sense, it became an internal belief because it wasn’t addressed with the fear of the Lord. 

lovey

The Lord isn’t just lovey-dovey; He is God almighty. The Word even describes Him as a God of war. We can’t just look at one side of His character. He is so much more than “God is love.”

 I don’t want to teach just a part of the truth and lead people into deception, but I have to ensure I’m not in deception first.

lovey

I used to believe that if instructors were teaching different things, that one had to be wrong, but that isn’t true.

God anoints different teachers with diverse messages, and it’s not good to stick with just one person because you need to understand the different messages.

Andrew teaches grace, but I never could grasp it when he taught the fear of the Lord.

John Bevere is anointed to preach that message, and I understand it with Him, but with John I never understood grace.

It’s not that they don’t preach both, they do, but I didn’t understand certain topics with some teachers.
