I originally posted the following poem in May of 2010, but felt led to re-post it today.
May you have an ear to hear what the Spirit is saying to you in this season.
We want to reap, but not to sow……
We want to get, but not to give…..
We want the crown, but not the cross……
We want forgiveness, but not to forgive…..
We want to be exalted, but not to humble ourselves….
We want the “promised land”, but not the wilderness……
We want the power, but not the obedience…..
We want to preach, but not to study…..
We want the anointing, but not to pay the price for it…..
We want deliverance, but not repentance…..
We want to be content with much, but not to be content with little…..
We want God’s “yes”, but not His “no” …..
We want Kingdom principles, but not the King of the principles…..
We want His hand, but not His face…..
We want His purpose, but not His process…..
We want to reign with Him, but not to suffer with Him…..
We want to have His life, but not to lose our life…..
We want Him as Savior, but not as Lord.….
We want God on our terms not His.
Beloved, do not be deceived; this will never work!
“For My thoughts are not your thoughts, Nor are your ways My ways,” says the Lord. For as the heavens are higher than the earth, So are My ways higher than your ways, And My thoughts than your thoughts.
(Isaiah 55:8, 9 – NKJV)
“Blessed is every one who fears the Lord, who walks in His ways.”
(Psalms 128:1 – NKJV)
