Much-to-do has been made over celebrities lip-synching as the general consensus seems to be that people want to hear and see the “real thing.” Women of God, are we mouthing God’s Word, but the people around us have yet to see the “real thing” produced in our everyday lives? Are we putting on a show to the tune of Christianity without any real substance behind what we appear to be? Truth and transparency are the keys to growing in the things of God. We may crack on a few notes from time to time, but the more we allow God’s Word and God’s Spirit to renew and strengthen us, we will be better. Most importantly, the back-up track is replaced with God’s awesome power to make all things new, allowing us to walk the walk and talk the talk. Let our voices be legitimized when we take the mic, without worry because God’s Spirit working in us is flawless. Let the world see the fruits of God’s Spirit in our lives as it allows us to love, forgive and minister the Gospel through our faith walk. Let them see us live and uncut as God’s anointing is all the back-up we need!
“Not everyone who says to me’ Lord, Lord,’ will enter the kingdom of heaven, but only the one who does the will of my father who is in heaven.” Matthew 7:21 (NIV)
Heavenly Father, I know that Your Word says that others will recognize Your children by their fruits, and I am Your child. I need You to renew and strengthen me by Your Holy Spirit, so I can operate in the fullness of You and be a light in this world. I desire to glorify You in all that I do and in all that I am. I thank You for the anointing on my life and I ask that when others see me, they see You. Thank You for loving me and opening my heart to Your leading. In Jesus’ name I pray, Amen.
A sincere thank you to our Daughters of the King Daily Devotional Writers.
