Speak to Your Mountains

Feb 17, 2017

And Ruth the Moabitess said unto Naomi, Let me now go to the field, and glean ears of corn after him in whose sight I shall find grace. And she said unto her, Go, my daughter. (Ruth 2:2-KJV)

I found myself in the book of Ruth, a book that I’ve read quite a few times already. My mind was thinking, Why am I here again, I’ve already read this. I was led to chapter 2 verse 2 specifically. I couldn’t get it out of my mind the entire day. Only later did I realize that God kept emphasizing that Ruth boldly spoke that she would go into Boaz’s field, and she would find grace in his sight, and  Naomi encouraged her. Ruth didn’t question whether Boaz would accept her to enter his field. The King James Version, says Let me now go to the field, and glean ears of corn after him in whose sight I shall find graceShe boldly declared that she would find favour, and she went.
This reminds me why we ought to come boldly, with authority to the throne of grace, and speak that which we want to see fulfilled. Our words are spirit and life. When we find ourselves in particular seasons, face-to-face with challenges, our words should be that of victory spoken in the authority of Christ. It doesn’t help to build mountains that we will need to move again.
Moreover, as Ruth worked in the field, Boaz spotted her, inquired of her, and extended to her grace. He told her not to go glean in another field but to stay close to where the other women were; he extended a hedge of protection on her from the ardor of other men. Additionally, if she were in need of water, refreshment or rest, it was available to her (Ruth 2:3,8-9). That’s grace!
The lesson I take from this is that, wherever you are, and whatever you have been entrusted to do, speak life, speak victory, let the words of your mouth command the blessings of God so that God will grace you with those blessings as you are faithfully gleaning the field.  That thing that you want is right in front of you. Don’t do yourself a disservice by speaking words of doubt, destruction or death. Speak life and let God honour you; you may end up not having to work all fields, but only need to work one, and in that one, you will get a lot of perks you never thought possible.

Just as Jesus assured his disciples that if they have faith, and do not doubt, they can say to the mountain "be you cast into the sea" and it will be done (Matthew 21:21) you can speak to the mountains in your life, and see your circumstances change.

Dealing With Sexual SIN!

Feb 2, 2017

I have a confession. I find myself anxiously wrestling with the thoughts of judgment from others. The things  they will say about me. The broken perception of my identity. In journeying with Christ, the truth of my heart and pleasurable deeds has exposed me many times. Frail in Spirit, sinful in body, however daily being renewed. I've struggled with affection to please my flesh—while still serving God. To the divine, who stands on the pulpit, I should be casted away and no longer included in the body of those who confess to be forgiven. After the self identification of my sin, I've realized how easy it is for them to judge, mock and diligently gossip. They pride themselves to be better than those who openly display their sin, but refuse to extend a hand in grace. Whispers of " I will never" have become the symphony orchestrated around their lives. However, they have forgotten to remove the log in their eye as they boastfully point out the speck in their neighbours | Matthew 7:5|.
