People Will Not Always Embrace Your Vision

Martin Luther King said that he had a dream. I am sure that when he first talked about this dream or vision people couldn’t get on board with it. Take for example Joseph, in the book of Genesis. He told his dream to his brothers and they tried to kill him because of it. Why? It was because his dream elevated him above them.

 

The vision he had went beyond their comprehension. He also couldn’t articulate clearly what he saw. He did not understand the ramifications and requirements to fulfill this dream. His brothers knew he was favored by their father and that he placed much trust in Joseph.

 With this in mind, Joseph lorded over his siblings that he had a special assignment. That was not a smart move on his part. Jealousy from others will set in when the vision is so much bigger than you are.  

With this in mind let us look at Dr King. His vision was HUGE. The county was racially divided. A lot of black people were afraid of his vision because they were so used to being second class citizens. They did not want to rock the boat for they were afraid of the ramifications. Others were ready for a change however, by any means necessary. They understood that change was often wrought by turmoil and were willing to pay the price. 

 

White people were afraid of his vision because they felt like he elevated himself above them. How dare he try and change the status quo! They wanted blacks to stay in their place. On the other hand you had a minority of whites that knew it was time for a change and they embraced the vision of Dr King.

 

King was killed for his dream/vision and Joseph was sold into slavery. Yet and still because the Lord had given them the mandate and the vision He brought it to past! Remember a God given vision has no choice but to come into fruition. The vision is not for you.  It is for the betterment humanity. You are just the vehicle or facilitator.

 Hold Onto Your Vision 

To have a vision or dream is to have a glimpse of something that God has specifically ordained for your life that He’s predestined for you and only you. The unique thing about your vision is that YOU are the only one who can see it and understand it. Your vision breeds passion, excitement, and anticipation just like a mother who’s about to give birth to an unborn child. Though she couldn’t physically see her child for a period of time, she loved and nourished it day by day. So it is with a vision. It is a process, an appointed time.

 

Are you struggling with the disappointment of others being jealous, non-supportive, and ignorant of your vision. I have. People I thought would embrace what God had given me did not. As a matter of fact they were waiting for me to fail. Some have even tried to sabotage what I have been assigned to do. However God always has a ram in the bush. He sent me others that are encouragers and those that have been very instrumental in helping to bring the vision to past.

 I had to learn that it’s not about other people and what they think, but it’s all about God and His timing for the vision to come to pass. After all, it wasn’t meant for others to see and understand.  

In time others will get on board and run with what He has given you. That’s why God gave the vision to me and not them. Hold onto YOUR vision, YOUR dream, and YOUR passion. Don’t let anyone take it away from you. Keep trusting God and speak whatever positive thing or things that you desire for your life into the NOW. Ask God for what your heart desires most. Call the things that are not as though they were. Call the uncreated into creation. Make it to be so!

 Understand that things sometimes don’t happen over night and then sometimes God performs a miracle and they do. Guard your heart from bitterness and resentment. I went there and did that and it was not pleasant. If you are there, repent (turn away from those negative attitudes and behaviors) and ask God to forgive and deliver you. 

 Stop depending on people. God has told us that if He be for us, who can be against us? You will find that in holding on to your vision, it will get lonely sometimes. Until it manifests itself, you can’t expect others to see or believe it. It’s like when a woman is pregnant. No one else in the room can have that baby but her at that moment. Your vision has to be birthed by you and only you.

 

Hold onto YOUR vision no matter what it looks like! Other people around you may be realizing their dreams and yours seem like it is still at the fetus stage. Others are galloping ahead at full speed and you have not even gotten out of the stall. Don’t despair and don’t give up! Because it SHALL come to past as long as you keep moving into the things that God has for you.

 

Don’t be an imitator of someone else. You know what He has told YOU! Wait on it! Be in peace and know that what He has for you is for YOU!

You Have Skirted This Mountain Too Long

mountainsYou Have Skirted This Mountain Too Long! 

Zerubbabel was a descendant of King David (1 Chronicles 3:1,19 – see also Israelite Dynasties) who led a large group of Jews back to Jerusalem after their seventy years exile in Babylon.

  

Zerubbabel was given the task of doing what could not be stopped because The Lord cannot be stopped: He was given the commission to re-build the temple.

So he answered and said to me:  “ This is the word of the LORD to Zerubbabel: ‘ Not by might nor by power, but by My Spirit,’ Says the LORD of hosts. ‘ Who are you, O great mountain?  Before Zerubbabel you shall become a plain! And he shall bring forth the capstone. With shouts of “Grace, grace to it!” Moreover the word of the LORD came to me, saying: “ The hands of Zerubbabel Have laid the foundation of this temple;His hands shall also finish it.Then you will know That the LORD of hosts has sent Me to you.  For who has despised the day of small things? For these seven rejoice to see The plumb line in the hand of Zerubbabel. They are the eyes of the LORD, Which scan to and fro throughout the whole earth.” Zech 4:6-10

  

Is there a mountain before you this day? Does it appear insurmountable? Like the children of Israel, have you taken your journey into the wilderness and skirted Mount Seir for many days? Hear the word of God to Moses, saying: “You have skirted this mountain long enough, turn northward.

  

To Zerubbabel He said : “Not by might nor by power, but by my spirit says the Lord of hosts. Who are you, O great mountain? Before Zerubbabel you shall become a plain! And he shall bring forth the capstone with shouts of “Grace, grace to it!”

  

Let that be a word for you today! God will cause us to triumph. With God, there is always a way out, a way around, or a way through the wilderness and a way into His promises. He is the way, the truth and the life; He is the door. He’s the how, the when and the where of it all!

  

Despise not the day of small things, for even as the eyes of the Lord rejoiced to see the plumb line in the hand of Zerubbabel, He will rejoice over you when he sees you holding that thing you have believe for.

The Homosexual Agenda-(GLSEN) Parents Beware

Posted on October 17, 2007. Filed under: Gay Agenda, homosexuality | Tags: , , , , , , , , , , , , |

Last week I had on my show  Todays Breathing Room  Heide Janshon and Lisa Darrell. Our discussion was titled the Homosexual Agenda and Leadership. Listen Live. The show took an interesting turn however. I wanted to talk about gays in leadership in the Church and instead we talked about GLSEN which is the Gay Lesbian Straight Education Network. This organization’s agenda is to indoctrinate our school children into exploring the gay life style at much younger ages. This group is comprised of educators whose sole role in life is to brainwash our children to accept the homosexual agenda.

The Traditional Values Coalition proposes GLSEN gets into schools by claiming that “homosexual” and “transgender” students need to feel safe and encouraged; and that so-called “homosexual/transgender” teens have high rates of suicide and need a support group. When this tactic fails, GLSEN then threatens legal action against school districts that refuse to allow these recruitment clubs on campus. The American Civil Liberties Union has volunteered to serve as the enforcement arm of GLSEN to impose a homosexual agenda on the nation’s public schools

You can listen live  to the radio broadcast to find out what educators are really teaching your children. Click on the archive for Oct 8th. Parents would be alarmed at some of the material being sponsored by our school system to undermine what they are being teached at home.

According to an article that came out in TIME magazine this month kids are disclosing their homosexuality with unprecedented regularity–and they are doing so much younger. The average gay person now comes out just before or after graduating high school, according to The New Gay Teenager, a book Harvard University Press published this summer. The book quotes a Penn State study of 350 young people from 59 gay groups that found that the mean age at which lesbians first have sexual contact with other girls is 16; it’s just 14 for gay boys. In 1997 there were approximately 100 gay-straight alliances (GSAs)–clubs for gay and gay-friendly kids–on U.S. high school campuses. Today there are at least 3,000 GSAs–nearly 1 in 10 high schools has one–according to the Gay Lesbian Straight Education Network (GLSEN, say “glisten”), which registers and advises GSAs. In the 2004-05 academic year, GSAs were established at U.S. schools at the rate of three per day.

Have you ever noticed that if you say anything contrary to what gays believe then you are a gay basher and homophobic? I am not a gay basher or am I homophobic. I have had 2 gay friends of mine that I loved dearly die. One died from AIDS ,the other was murdered by his lover.

I still however have friends that are gay.  I do not condone their lifestyle. However I still love them. Jesus hates their lifestyle but still loves them very much so. What I don’t like however is gay people trying to seduce my children into exploring their lifestlye. So for those of you that would send me hate mail saying I am intolerant of others, FORGET IT. In the famous words of Dr. Phil, ” That Dog Won’t Hun’t .”
