Those who dance are considered insane by those who cannot hear the music. ~George Carlin~
Be true to your calling, whatever it is that you may have been given to do. There will always be those that do not understand the truth you have received, or the reason for your faith, hope and joy in that which yet remains unseen. Trust that inner voice that comes from deep inside (but not your head) that leads you on without seeking validation from others that cannot see or hear. Do not seek advice from those who walk alone and have no sponsor, or spiritual direction to lead the way. They know not the ways of God. The same as “you cannot give away what you haven’t got” so it is that we should not seek advice or identification from those who are not working “the program” unless you wish to take a detour. Learning to recognize His voice and listening to God is the prerequisite for overcoming, and accomplishing great exploits. Then we must act upon that which we believe we are meant to do or be regardless of what others may think.
Thought for the day
Do I still waste time and precious brain power worrying about what others think of me or am I learning to be true to my mandate, to become a Godly man? Why should I care what others who do not know the light think of my actions?
And David was dancing before the LORD with all his might, and David was wearing a linen ephod. So David and all the house of Israel were bringing up the ark of the LORD with shouting and the sound of the trumpet. Then it happened as the ark of the LORD came into the city of David that Michal the daughter of Saul looked out of the window and saw King David leaping and dancing before the LORD; and she despised him in her heart…But when David returned to bless his household, Michal the daughter of Saul came out to meet David and said, “How the king of Israel distinguished himself today! He uncovered himself today in the eyes of his servants’ maids as one of the foolish ones shamelessly uncovers himself!” So David said to Michal, “It was before the LORD, who chose me above your father and above all this house, to appoint me ruler over the people of the LORD, over Israel; therefore I will celebrate before the LORD.”
~2 Samuel 6:14-16,20,21 (NASB)~
And such as violate the covenant he shall pervert and seduce with flatteries, but the people who know their God shall prove themselves strong and shall stand firm and do exploits [for God]. ~Daniel 11:32 (Amp)~
And ye shall know the truth, and the truth shall make you free. ~Jesus / John 8:32~
Father God as in all things I seek your continued blessings upon me, your undeserving servant. Help me to know that there are many false prophets who wish to validate their journey by unseating me from mine. Give me the gifts of discernment and wisdom that I may know what actions to take that will help me stay today on the path of righteousness, for it is far better than the path of wrongness.
