"What Are You Talking About?"

 

I was given a vision not too long ago, standing in front of the throne, of the Almighty God. While I stood, He asked me these words,"What are you talking about?"


I stood there and God patiently waited for me to answer. Now as easy as the answer seemed to be, I had to really analyze & think about this before I gave my answer. Standing there, I realized that my lips were moving but nothing was coming out. I began to ask God to reveal what does this mean and  I eventually came to the realization that the reason nothing was coming out is because I wasn't talking about anything! He was showing me that before I speak I needed to learn to listed and when I learned to listen, He would tell me when to speak. So all this time I finally understood that I wasn't talking about what the Spirit wanted me to. Reflecting on all the opportunities missed to glorify the name of the Lord, because complaining was the only thing that came from my lips. I began to think about about being so young and undeveloped in the Gospel that when I began to teach and preach, the words I spoke came with a mixture of God and my flesh. Coming to the realization that when I speak on Spiritual things, the flesh has no place to make an opinion and the word of God doesn't need our adlibs! Understand that while the flesh relates to Spiritual things for understanding, we are to keep the spirit stronger and higher than the flesh in order to speak and gain spiritual wisdom for our own edification as well as others.


You know we have a lot of people who like to talk but never have anything to say. Then you have those that have so much to say but don't know how to speak up when a situation arises that needs their voice. In any situation we must remember that A Christian is a soldier standing for the character of God and we each have a  duty to represent the character of God through our actions and our speech. In light of this, make sure that your words and delivery represent The Son of God correctly by first, listening to receive the words before you speak thus making sure your words are led by the Spirit from which they were given.


IF YOUR SPEECH IS NOT EDIFYING TO YOU ARE SOMEONE ELSE, REMEMBER, EVEN JESUS KEPT QUIET SOMETIME!!
