REFLECTIONS: Guilted Into Service
(c) Nicki Black
August 30, 2012:
Someone reading this right now needs to hear these words: There is a calculated difference between being stretched by the Lord's will, and being stretched by man's will. Pushing a square peg into a round hole wasn't His intention for your life. You likely recognize in your core, whether entirely or by mere tastings, for which you were designed. Continually allowing yourself to be set into situations that are beyond that Holy Spirit "ok" in your gut leads
to an eventual breakdown in your ability to recognize faith risk vs. "guilted kingdom service". The innate chasm you feel is real. Don't be afraid to say no if you know the Lord is rooting you on another track. How can you find the light at the end of the tunnel if you're giving the light switch over to someone else. Beloved, it's your walk and destiny. We must all be operating in our uniqueness for the most effective, glorious and mature Acts Church.
