Today, we're doing something a little different in todays blog post because I saw this quote on Instagram and it hit me like a ton of bricks!!
Listen to this..
Your calling is going to crush you. If you're called to mend the brokenhearted, you're going to wrestle with broken-heartedness. If you're called to prophesy, you're going to struggle to control your mouth. If you're called to lay hands, you will battle spiritual viruses. If you are called to preach and to teach, you will be sifted for the wisdom that anoints your message. If you are called to empower, your self-esteem will be attacked, your successes will be hard fought. Your calling will come with cups, thorns and sifting that are necessary for your mantle to be authentic.. humble and powerful. Your crushing won't be easy because your assignment is not easy. Your oil is not cheap.
BRB while I read this like 100 times.
Seriously no explanation needed with this post.. read it.. re-read it.. then read it again.
Pray this prayer today: Dear Heavenly Father, please don't let me forget how important my oil is. The crushing that I'm feeling is temporary and I ask you to give me the strength to endure through it. In Jesus name I pray, Amen.
