When have we ever needed someone’s permission to be great? We are filled with so much power as Christians. We are odd and peculiar in nature, set aside, and uniquely designed to mold different environments into who we are. We are game changers, affectious, and infectious. What doesn’t look like the world’s fashion upsets us because our identity is so helter skelter at times. HEY! We don’t mold into them, but they conform to us! In the most basic diagnosis, Christians are just insecure. Daniel 11:32 defines the people of God clearly in the face of adversity and opposition of the world. It says: “And such as do wickedly against the covenant shall he corrupt by flatteries: but the people that know their God shall be strong, and do exploits”. WOW!!! Those that know their God will be able to stand firm against what is politically correct and culturally acceptable without being swayed or bound to man’s approval. They will know their God and not a false one. They will be able to demonstrate Him in a powerful display of not only miracles, but the power to lead whole armies of the Lord. God is waiting on us to pass this test. These individuals will be able to deny themselves and take up a greater cause. We cannot become backwards, not knowing the power we truly possess as believers.
You’ve been walking into rooms with the brightest smile in the world but have retracted that smile because you were not sure if that type of joy was allowed in such climates. DON’T DO THAT! Let them call you the crazy one for having joy where it’s not comprehendible. You were sent to bring peace, joy, and an experience that no one else knows but you. You are the voice of justice. You were sent to declare the acceptable year of the Lord, but you are refusing to because you want what’s foreign to your greatness to accept you? BE WHO YOU ARE! Someone needs your smile and your hello. They need your: “It’s all going to be okay. Don’t worry.” “God is here now”…..And He will be there when you walk into a room. We must believe on the Lord Jesus, not just for ourselves, but for others as well. They will believe because we didn’t hide Him.
