Passion for the Invisible One

Let my people go, that they may worship me! – God, via Moses
I will not enter into my house, or go to my bed, I will not allow my eyes to sleep north eyelids to slumber until I have found a house for the Lord, a dwelling fit the Mighty One of Jacob! – Heart of David
Hear me, O LORD, hear me, that this people may know that thou art the LORD God, and that thou hast turned their heart back again. – Spirit of Elijah 
My House shall be called a house of prayer, but you have made it into a den of thieves! – Jesus Zeal for Gods house 
It’s good to be passionate about Invisible Things… the things of God, purity, prayer and true worship. It’s good to desire freedom from corrupt unjust governments, from filthy worship systems, from vain traditions, and from corrupt religious systems- for the cause of true worship. Passion for worship is ok!

Don’t Stress the Small Battles

The lion and the bear were just practice for Goliath! Goliath was just practice for entire Nations! Don’t stress out for the small battles… keep your eyes on the glory of God.

Samuel, the Original Kingmaker: Don’t preach peace to Eli and mourn for Saul as an excuse not to fulfill your purpose

It’s so hard to find good leaders, when men are so brainwashed to follow man instead of Christ.

A lot of people would rather preach peace to Eli, and mourn for Saul rather be the priest and king that God has called them to be in Christ for their generation.

When Samuel was young, he was tempted not to preach the real word of the Lord to Eli, out of respect for his elder, father figure, and high priest.

When Samuel was old, he was tempted to mourn for Saul instead of find a new king, because Saul was his first appointed king, and he had a personal relationship with Saul.

But the authority in the kingdom of God was never in titles or human relationships in the first place. Priestly and kingly authority is in prayer for people, teaching the word, and doing the Word for an example. Samuel understood this:

1 Samuel 12
23 Moreover as for me, God forbid that I should sin against the Lord in ceasing to pray for you: but I will teach you the good and the right way: 24 only fear the Lord, and serve him in truth with all your heart: for consider how great things he hath done for you.

Read 1 and 2 Samuel
