Are you the Grasshopper or the Giant?

“Instead, resist the devil—resist self-pity and the blame game—and take back your position of power. A person in power doesn’t complain—he takes action.” -Kenneth Copeland

I heard my Savior say to me this morning,

“Pick your Promise back up.”

Own it.

We have no one else to blame for our circumstances but us.

God has made all Grace and Peace available, and Paul says through His letters, that it is multiplied, through our Knowledge of God.

Adam and Eve both had full access to God while in the heat of the battle.

They succumbed to the temptation, and instead of owning their mistakes, they blamed God and blamed each other.

Condemnation caused them to run away from the Answer instead of to Him.

But God, our Amazing Rescue,  And Father, Found them.

He made a sacrifice and covered them up, until the Fulness of Time, when He would destroy their sin in the body of His Son.

He found Abraham too, after He had swerved and missed the promise,

And He finds you and I Today.

His Grace finds us.

Just like the Father of the Prodigal Son, ran to meet him and clothe him and reinstate him to His Inheritance,

So too, the Father says to us today,

Pick up your promise.

I’m not concerned with where or how you dropped it, or who’s fault it was,

my concern is that my Blood was Shed to pay the penalty and it’s a High Price to let it go wasted and unused.

It’s a mockery to the blood of Jesus when we believe our sin was or is greater than the sacrifice.

If you count the Blood of Jesus worthy today with me,

then pick up your promise.

Lift your hands to believe Again.

His Grace has found you-

Just like He found Abraham and reinstated the Promise.

“And the Lord appeared unto him in the plains of Mamre: and he sat in the tent door in the heat of the day; And he lift up his eyes and looked, and, lo, three men stood by him: and when he saw them, he ran to meet them from the tent door, and bowed himself toward the ground, And said, My Lord, if now I have found favour in thy sight, pass not away, I pray thee, from thy servant: Let a little water, I pray you, be fetched, and wash your feet, and rest yourselves under the tree: And I will fetch a morsel of bread, and comfort ye your hearts; after that ye shall pass on: for therefore are ye come to your servant. And they said, So do, as thou hast said. And Abraham hastened into the tent unto Sarah, and said, Make ready quickly three measures of fine meal, knead it, and make cakes upon the hearth. And Abraham ran unto the herd, and fetched a calf tender and good, and gave it unto a young man; and he hasted to dress it. And he took butter, and milk, and the calf which he had dressed, and set it before them; and he stood by them under the tree, and they did eat. And they said unto him, Where is Sarah thy wife? And he said, Behold, in the tent. And he said, I will certainly return unto thee according to the time of life; and, lo, Sarah thy wife shall have a son. And Sarah heard it in the tent door, which was behind him. Now Abraham and Sarah were old and well stricken in age; and it ceased to be with Sarah after the manner of women. Therefore Sarah laughed within herself, saying, After I am waxed old shall I have pleasure, my lord being old also? And the Lord said unto Abraham, Wherefore did Sarah laugh, saying, Shall I of a surety bear a child, which am old? Is any thing too hard for the Lord? At the time appointed I will return unto thee, according to the time of life, and Sarah shall have a son. Then Sarah denied, saying, I laughed not; for she was afraid. And he said, Nay; but thou didst laugh.”
