Call To Arms
April 17, 2012 Comments Off on Call To Arms
For everyone that was ever told you weren’t good enough, for everyone that was ever told you weren’t beautiful, weren’t worthy, weren’t gifted- they are wrong.
We are all uniquely and wonderfully made, we are all molded and fashioned to be instruments and vessels of truth of the most high God. We are all made in the image of God, He spent time planning your life- creating the very individual hair on your hair. Don’t ever believe that you were a mistake, don’t ever believe that you have no reason to live or to go on another day.
God gave us our passions, God instilled the very strains of DNA that would be passed on for generations through our families. God created and perfected recreation of human life. God sent His only Son to become like man and to bare the weight of the world in His body that hang on the cross. He took both of our places, He endured a pain unknown to man as he bore the entire weight of the world for you and for me, so that we would have a chance to spend eternity with Him.
Let us set aside our lust. Let us set aside pornography. Let us flee from sin. Let us never forget the suffering and love that was poured out on a cross. Let us never forget that He is God and we are not. Let us set aside the aching feeling to belong to something when a loving God has his arms outstretched.
Let it rain God, open the flood gates of Heaven. We want to see more of you God, we want to be in your presence. We come before you in a time of need and time of brokenness, piece us together. Mold us Lord, create us to be the men and women that you have called us to be. Let us never forget our place at the Kings table, we are merely your servant your Lord. Strengthen our arms, sharpen our tongues, make our hearts beat quick for things that are pleasing and holy to you Oh Lord. We will not be silent.
Women are never meant to be possessed, to be raped or beaten. Let us find hope in You when there is no hope for us to see, we want to see you- show us your glory God. We want to know you. Let the men of this world honor and cherish, let them put a sacrifice before their family and their wife. May they never forget the commitment that have made to you God before their wives.
To know and believe in the name of Jesus Christ is to have freedom, to have love, and compassion for each and every person. Jesus was crucified so that we would know His name, so that we would know that He loved us and paid the ultimate sacrifice for each of us, individually. God specifically placed YOU on this earth for the year 2012. God gave you a beating heart to pursue the passions He gave you. Just put your hand over your heart, feel the beat- know that God hand crafted and designed every micrometer of your heart so that you could glorify Him.
We can be the change God, let us be the change. Use me God, use me to be your instrument. I am yours God, take control and never let go of me. Add and remove of my life, it is yours. Let my mess become my message of your enduring love, of your kindness and goodness in times of sorrow. You are all that I need Lord, in you I find my happiness. Let this be a time of change, let us rise up.
Grant me favor so that I may bring you honor, grant me favor so that I may proclaim your name from the highest mountain top. Choose me God, use me God to speak your word. I kneel before you oh Lord, for you are my Father that I love, for you are my Master, my strength. May you fasten the full armor on my body, may you sharpen my sword to do your work.
For many of us, the world gives us things to be interested in. The world flashes success in front of our eyes, just as the snake flashed the fruit to Eve in the Garden of Eden. We seek after our interests rather than our God given passions.
My prayer is that our life would be filled with our God given passions. We are so easily deceived by what the world offers because our generation is not able to look beyond what gratifies our happiness of today. Let us be the generation that rises up, let us be the generation that breaks down the walls. He has won the victory, our battle has been fought for us- on the cross. Death couldn’t hold Him down, He is the risen King, He is the reason for our happiness.
No cars, no clothes, not even the cheap thrills could ever fill us with the joy of living a life of God can bring. Let us be the college students God has called us to be, let us pursue God. We are not called to be silent, we are called and created to be aliens- stand outs from everyone else because we have a reason to be- Jesus Christ.
Let us be Men of God. Let us learn to forsake our childhood and rise to be Men. Let us not be tied down by immaturity and lust, let us break free from our bodies and chase God. We were never created to be boxed in and put away- we are created to rule and live with God. Let us be the future fathers of our generation that honors our families, let us restore leadership to our households. Let us be servants to our wife’s, let us rise up and fight the battle that God has laid before us- we are not silent.
Jesus never died so that you would live in condemnation, so that you would be a slave to your own sin. He overcame death, he overcame the grace, and He is conquerer, Almighty God, The Alpha and Omega. Let us never forget whom we serve, let us never be content with our faith. Let us want more of you God.
Though none go with me, I will follow Jesus. We have decided to follow Jesus, we have decided to be the difference. Let us unite together, as one voice, as one army, as one generation. Together we can be the difference, with men things are impossible, but with God all things are possible.
I will not be silent.
I will not be ashamed.
I am forgiven.
I am loved.
I am a child of the King.
I am created in His Image.
My sin is paid for.
My sin is was beaten into the flesh of my Savior.
Because He tells me so.
