I have come to the conclusion that a lot of times we as Christians we have a misplaced identity, we get the delusion that truly serving Yahweh is being relevant and popular and that couldn’t be further from the truth, you don’t have to be Billy Graham to be great for God.
I think it’s easy to see our spiritual leaders and think If I’m gonna have a successful ministry I need to be like that dude… I’ve tried that and have been very unsuccessful at it and at ministry trying to be something that I’m not, so what are you? Where are you most successful for Yahweh? That can only be realized through intimacy and time with Him, you may be a great warrior mom or an excellent employee and mom, maybe your mission is to be head of your household maybe it’s being a great neighbor, yes these are all things that we want to be excellent at but we can tend to shine light on things in ministry giving them great importance when sometimes loving that dude at work that Hates you and doing a great job even though you don’t get paid enough, or your looked over again and again for a promotion and nothing seems fair is a ministry, and these things can become the hum drum of life. We need to remember that Yahweh is our redeemer and that this day like every day has been anointed and appointed and set forth by Him with you in mind, this day and the opportunities within it will never come again and we do not want to miss the greatness that Yahweh has for us just because we felt like our assignment from Him was minuscule and irrelevant. You are relevant today, maybe not Popular maybe not well known maybe the only people that admire you are some little kids that just want to make a mud pie or build some LEGOs or a McDonald’s employee at the drive through… whatever situation you are in Yahweh has appointed you and anointed you to be the best at whatever it is that you are doing today, so many times I’ve overlooked Yahweh’s assignment on my life in the (hum drum) of life because I was looking to the stars. I am reminded of something Yoda said to Luke in the Empire Strikes Back when he was training on Dagobah. “All his life has he looked away to the future, to the horizon. Never his mind on where he was… what he was doing.”
What is Yahweh doing in your midst today? The simplest things are holy and relevant, Jesus said:
“Here is another illustration Jesus used: “The Kingdom of Heaven is like a mustard seed planted in a field. It is the smallest of all seeds, but it becomes the largest of garden plants; it grows into a tree, and birds come and make nests in its branches.””
Matthew 13:31-32 NLT
For many years in ministry I have been trying to tell the stones to become bread, only to be groveling for scraps and spirituality starving to death… so I could be satisfied only by what I can see and physically consume… I’ve realized that I have a seat at the table and living off the Word of Yahweh is what brings true sustenance and fulfillment to our souls and will bring revelation and change the world around us.
“During that time the devil came and said to him, “If you are the Son of God, tell these stones to become loaves of bread.” But Jesus told him, “No! The Scriptures say, ‘People do not live by bread alone, but by every word that comes from the mouth of God.’ ””
Matthew 4:3-4 NLT
As you all well know Revelation Resistance has been in a season for the past 2 years, I’m so excited to announce that we are entering a new season for the podcast, I’ve taken the last month off to sit back and re-evaluate where I believe that Yahweh is leading me and this ministry and what He wants from it in this new season that we will be in… I have tirelessly exhausted myself trying to keep up with and navigate these times as a leader, and like many of you if I do not heed Yahweh’s leadership in my life I’m not going to end up any good to anyone, and sometimes what was effective yesterday will not be effective today so with much prayer and leadership from Yahweh and the spiritual leadership in my life things are changing… some of you will like it and some maybe not, and those that may not like it have been considered but ultimately I’m not here to serve you what I believe you want, I’m here to serve you and offer you what I have in this season of Revelation Resistance and I have considered a lot of things and completely quitting podcasting was one of them, but I believe Yahweh is pleased to have me just be me with Him in this new season of the ministry. So I love you all and I greatly appreciate your support over the past 2 years, it’s been a real trek to journey and as you listen to the first 2 years of Revelation Resistance you’ll see someone who was scared and hurt really never wanting to be a part of church or church family be loved and guided towards his full potential as a Kingdom man. Or at least thats what I get out of the past 2 years. -Stacy
