When Others Speak A Sharp Piercing Word

When Others Speak A Sharp Piercing Word

When Others Speak A Sharp Piercing Word

When a sharp piercing word is released over your life don’t bristle, don’t worry, don’t stew,

Just humble yourself and fall on your knees and ask God if it’s relevant to you.

Then allow His Spirit to search your heart and explore it in-depth with His Light,

For establishing Truth in your innermost part is His desire and honorable and right.

Whatever He shows as He begins to expose don’t justify, deny or resent,

Just say, “Lord I agree, please forgive me” and with a broken, contrite heart repent.

But if nothing is there don’t allow false despair, you’ve done your soul-searching part,

Arise from the place, empowered by grace and your steps He’ll continue to chart.

“But he giveth more grace. Wherefore he saith, God resisteth the proud, but giveth grace unto the humble.”

(James 4:6 – KJV)

The Ladle Of Repentance Or The Ladle Of Judgment?

The Ladle Of Repentance Or The Ladle Of Judgment?

The Pots Are Boiling

In this season, it seems as if almost every nation, society and institution in the world is like a pot on a stove under which the heat has been turned up to the boiling point, and all the dregs once hidden in the bottom of each pot are now being forced to the surface and exposed to be skimmed off.

The Church Is Not Exempt

The Church/Body of Christ at-large is not exempt from this time of heat and exposure. It is happening in our midst on both a corporate and individual level worldwide. 

The heat has been turned up under our pots as well, and the dregs that were once hidden, in some instances for years, are now being forced to the surface and exposed for skimming.

Repentance Or Judgment

For us, this skimming can occur by one of two ways, by the ladle of repentance or the ladle of judgment…which will you choose?

As the heat turns up in our lives and God exposes the dregs that have been hidden at the bottom of the pot of our hearts and now need to be skimmed off, may we humbly and quickly choose the ladle of repentance so that the ladle of His disciplinary judgment will not be our lot.

Prideful resistance to repenting of revealed sin hinders the manifested presence of God’s joy in our lives. We may outwardly try to fake having joy, but without genuine, godly, heartfelt, remediating, repentance, there will be no true divine joy within us.

A Place Of Divine Joy

As our pots boil in this season, by God’s Grace and our willing hearts, may we continually pick up the ladle of repentance and allow God to skim off whatever sinful dregs He brings to the surface in our lives that are not pleasing to Him.

This lifestyle of skimming the exposed sinful dregs in our lives by using the ladle of repentance will allow the restoration and continued presence of the joy of God’s salvation within us, and that divine joy will give us much needed supernatural strength as we navigate through these uncertain, tumultuous times, and will be a testimony of God’s existence, Goodness, Mercy and Grace.

The heat is turned up, the pots are boiling, when the dregs surface in your life, which ladle will you choose?

The ladle of repentance or the ladle of judgment?

Selah.

“…..Therefore He says: “God resists the proud, But gives grace to the humble.”

(James 4:6 – NKJV)

“If we confess our sins, He is faithful and just to forgive us our sins and to cleanse us from all unrighteousness.” 

(1 John 1:9 – NKJV)

“Create in me a clean heart, O God, And renew a steadfast spirit within me And uphold me by Your generous Spirit. Do not cast me away from Your presence, And do not take Your Holy Spirit from me. Restore to me the joy of Your salvation And uphold me by Your generous Spirit.”

(Psalm 51:10-12 – NKJV)

“…for the joy of the Lord is your strength.”

(Nehemiah 8:10 – NKJV)
