Mad for all the right reasons.....

Luke 14:26

New King James Version (NKJV)
26 “If anyone comes to Me and does not hate his father and mother, wife and children, brothers and sisters, yes, and his own life also, he cannot be My disciple.

Lord, I finally get it!  I've prayed about this scripture for years.  But with the coaching of Minister Joye Davis, I have finally received what God is saying through this scripture.  It's because of what I've receive that I'm even back typing in this blog again.  I believe doors are opening right now because of this revelation.  Below is my testimony of this revelation:

On day while my son was taking his nap, I was doing my devotional and he woke up.  I wanted to cry, because I wanted more time with God.  I was mad.  I didn't know if it was a healthy emotion.  But God showed me that it was.  He told me "That's good, that's how I want you to feel about your pursuit of me".  Then yesterday my son would not go down for a nap and I got in the car so he would fall asleep and I would get some quiet time with God in the car I heard again "That's good, I want you to take desperate measures to get in your time with me.  I want you to get mad when you have to be pulled away from that time".  I realized what I thought was unloving towards my family was really what God wants from me.  In essense you do have moments of hating different people and your very life, because you just want to bask in God's presense and praise God because it's what He wants.  While I don't let that take me from my responsibilitites as a mom and wife, I now am able to treasure these feelings.  Many of us are scared to give ourselves over completely to God because of the intense emotions it stirs up in us to do His will.  We are scared of what it might do to our relationships and our very lives as we know them.  But guess what?  It will bless everyone around you and add so much to your life.  The enemy always wants you to think that God subtracts from your life, that's how Satan keeps many people out of the Kingdom, by making them think they would lose something in living for God.  But it's a lie!  The bible says Satan is a liar and the father of lies.  He invented the lie, Satan told the first lie ever to Eve in the Garden of Eden.  But Christ came to give to you, not to withhold or take from you.  Christ came to add not to subtract.  Christ came to give you life and life more abundantly, not to make your life dry and boring.  So please, get your eyes off of people and look at what the Word of God says about who He is.  Don't let Satan tell you who God is, because he will always lie about it.  Pray to God to show you who He is.
