Matthew 7:11 says, “If ye then, being evil, know how to give good gifts unto your children, how much more shall your Father which is in heaven give good things to them that ask him?”
One of the many things I love about God is His willingness to let us know how good and powerful He really is. You can see it in His painting of the canvas of this Universe and because He is good; you can see it in your daily life.
Last year, I started following Dr. Juanita Bynum’s Facebook program @3withMe. The teachings are so powerful! She’s focused on teaching you about how to have a relationship with God and to walk in all that He has called you to do and she doesn’t engage in the traps of teaching religion. Her messages are honesty and spirit-filled. Her teaching is not just for any body. If you want to walk around in the religious fog of this world, her teachings are not for you. But if you are interested in the “deeper” things of God, then she is the one! Teachings like this can only come for the Spirit of the Lord.
You Are Not Of This World
One of the first messages that I listened to from Dr. Juanita Bynum was from her book Praying in the Third Dimension. In her message, she read a passaged titled “Your Are Not Of This World.” It’s so powerful that I’ve included the entire reading here.
“When the United States send an Ambassador to some remote, impoverished part of Africa something “peculiar” happens. When People see him riding down the street, he is in a Mercedes Benz. In that remote part of Africa he is living in one of the most beautiful houses that you have ever seen. Why?
He lives in that part of Africa, but he is not a citizen of that country. The Ambassador and his family are citizens of the United States, which means our country is obligated to give them the kind of lifestyle they would have if they were in the United States–and not just for their comfort, but for others to look at their lifestyle and see a picture of America. What do people see when they look at your lifestyle? Are you a true Ambassador for Christ?
God has already prepared great things for those who love Him, and seek after Him with all of their hearts. We must move through the Outer Court to become His ambassadors! We must obtain the things of God that others lack, because they live in the inferior, earthly realm. We are citizens of heaven, so our lifestyle–the way we carry ourselves, the way we live–must exemplify our heavenly citizenship. We cannot get caught up in the Outer Court.
When you have been born again, you are not a citizen of this world. As God’s ambassador, you are to take help from heaven and distribute it to those who live in a place that is “remote” from His kingdom. This is true intercession, standing in the gap for someone else. If you are not doing this you are praying, but you are not interceding. So many believers get saved and stay in the Outer Court. They never become ambassadors…taking the things of God, standing in the gap of intercession, and passing His blessings on to people that need to receive Him.”
Now, not only did I watch her teachings on this message, which was powerful enough, I then purchased the book and read it again. I understood it the first time I heard it and reading it again just reinforced the message but little did I know, God had another reinforcement plan prepared just for me.
Now, I planned to share this story as a part 1 and 2 but as I’ve been meditating on this word God has really put it on my heart to share the journey with you in a video message. Stay tune as I bring you the rest of this amazing story through video message.
