Sit down, buckle up and expand your perspective. We are SO going there people. As I prepare for a revitalization for the brand and mission of Bride of Royalty; my focus is largely on November’s Video Series and an exciting Health & Wellness series for December. With that said, I cannot help but become inspired by the torment of our nation in this time of dramatic dysfunction. Oh, yeah, we are going there.
First, I must say; “Lay down your swords and picket signs.”
Today, will be mild and yet timely before the next Presidential debate which is currently scheduled for tomorrow; Wednesday October 19th, 9pm ET. Which, although somewhat excruciatingly painful on so many levels; we really do have a responsibility to remain aware of what is going on. We are living in the most historical point in our lifetime.
I want to lay some much needed groundwork for you before election day. Much of what we are seeing in the media are all distractions. Plain and simple. I firmly believe that although the rate of complacency and silence among the people has remained astronomical; I think that most of us are fully inherently aware that our media and those in positions of power; prefer the masses to be disengaged. People in power do not want pushback. It goes back to the fundamental root principle of; “Because I am the parent and I said so.” They just don’t want any arguments, defiance, disrespect, or questioning of their authority.
That’s all fine for their feelings but reality stands that Creator Abba Father put them in their position of authority on this earth.
“Let every soul be subject unto the higher powers. For there is no power but of God: powers that be are ordained of God.”
Okay, so just want to check with you, did you happen to notice anything in there that said: “Unless those powers that be are corrupt”? Or what about; “Except for powers that be who sin?” Wait. I know! I’m sure you must have found something that said, “Powers that be can never say bad things that are wrong and offend people.” Cool. Just checking.
Now, that we moved past all that, we are going just one more place. Unity as it relates to the love of God.
Today, among the darkness and extreme dysfunction; now more than ever we need to remain united as the body of Christ in order to bring unity to our nation. It would be a massively destructive choice for us as the Body of Christ to willingly choose to fall for the distractions being paraded in front of us. Do not be played a fool. Do not consume the distractions without discretion. We must stay focused on God’s will, not the accusations and propaganda of the parties.
For the most part Americans (well, people) want to be able to provide for their families, live in peace and contentment. Living in a nation which is so divided and at war with itself cannot remain united. I want to challenge you, Body of Christ, member of the United States, how do you hold yourself personally responsible for promoting and modeling unity? Do you understand what unity is? Before we can expect our entire nation to be unified and at peace; we must first become unified and at peace.
Well, how do we do that? How Bride of Royalty, do we live in a way that examples unity and exudes peace? It must start with you, the individual. You are created in the image of God. You are called to be an imitator of God. You are equipped and enabled to live in constant intimate relationship with Abba Father, King Jesus, and the power of the Holy Spirit. Without giving a full sermon I want to remind you of Genesis 26:1
“And God said, Let us make man in our image, after our likeness…”
God, from the beginning has been in relationship and chose to create you to be in relationship with Him. This is a beautiful example of unity. Communication and connectedness. How then do we reciprocate God’s desire to be in relationship with us? With distractions abounding and our own emotions threatening to betray us, how do we connect with and stay in unity with God?
Beloved, why do we experience feeling as though God is not close to us? Why do we live life as though God is so far away, allowing the distractions and worldly chaos to be louder than His voice? How do we diminish the threats and destruction of this world and keep our attention on the Creator and His will? How do we live in constant relationship with God and why is it so important?
Today, I bring you a RARE Gem. A treasure from God’s heart to teach you how to live as royalty. Your emotions and focus on the world puts a barrier between you and God. It is not God who is far from you, but your mind and emotions that are far from God. You must willingly choose to be present, in His presence. This means allowing yourself to genuinely become aware of and process your own emotions, experiences and opinions. Simply jumping on the bandwagon because the earthly evidence seems to align with truth is not the same as connecting with what you believe and then putting that through the filter of the Holy Spirit to verify if your opinions, emotions, & thoughts align with God’s will.
The first step is to connect with yourself. To accept yourself. To see yourself. Process your emotions and thoughts. Connect with your brain, your breath and your heart. Regard and honor where you are within yourself.Once you can truly identify yourself you will be able to connect with where God is for you, to hear His voice and discover His will. This, is the first step to unity in our nation. Connecting with the unity available to each of us as individuals. Once we obtain unity with the Father, we begin to uncover His will for our emotions, thoughts, and opinions. Including our political opinions and choices. To walk as royalty we must seek out God’s opinion and will above our own. This is impossible to do if we cannot even connect with & identify self amongst all the distractions.
As we prepare to watch another brawl between the divided parties of our nation, remember who you are, where you are, what you believe and then seek God’s opinion.
Who shall separate us from the love of Christ? shall tribulation, or distress, persecution, or famine, or nakedness, or peril, or sword?…
Nay in all these things we are more than conquerors through HIm that loved us.
For I am persuaded, that neither death, nor life, nor angels, nor principalities, nor powers, nor things present, nor things to come,
Nor height, nor depth, nor any other creature, shall be able to separate us from the love of God, which is in Christ Jesus our Lord.”
Nothing, not you, not political unrest, nothing can separate you from the love of God. Give yourself a chance to connect with you, so you can connect with our King.
Go and take this Rare Gem with you, a gift from the Father:
What do you think? Will uniting with yourself unite you with the King?
Will holding ourselves responsible to living united bring healing to our nation?
Can we continue to expect anything other than dysfunction & division if we ourselves live a life divided?
How can connecting with yourself & discovering God’s will & opinions influence the outcome of this year’s presidential election?
