Searching job descriptions in the Kingdom

In Kingdom living, God loves to honor those who love Him.

Today I felt honored to recieve the name of Intercessor of the Warrior Bride.

I asked a friend what that meant and she thought it was to be a prayer warrior for the church.

In Kingdom living, you learn to find what the job description is by looking at His word.  So I looked up 2 Samuel 6 and 1 Chr 16-17.  Going to be an interesting study

Treating a mistake before it becomes sin

The other day I was triming back my rose bush. In picking up the brush I got a thorn from one of the branches  that went through my glove.  I pulled it out and didn't think anymore of it.  This morning when I started driving My left hand felt different and when I looked at it I saw where the thorn had pricked my skin.    I realized when I got to work I needed to wear gloves more then normal as it was an open cut on my hand and I needed to protect it more from any germs getting in there.

As I was thinking how to protect it I got to thinking about how the thorn represents sin in our lives.  It can start out as a mistake, and a mistake is not a sin, but how we handle the mistake can be.   If we don't work on protecting it and fixing the mistake and instead we make a mountian out a mole hill and start attacking others then it becomes a sin.  When a mistake involves a person, its best to protect the person as much as possible. Gossiping about it or making a bigger deal about it only harms the person  more. 

Protecting their wound will help it heal faster. Saving their face in the circumstance is the best way to keep the wound from getting bigger and getting it out of hand.  Like salve to an open wound, a kind word or act does wonders to a person who's been hurt emotionally.

Be kind to one another.  Its a quote we hear often on TV.  We all make mistakes, but don't allow it to become sin.  Reverse what happened if you can and bring kindness if possible.  And if all else fails, pray.  God can remedy any wounded heart.

"Lest I forget"

When we think of sin, we don't think of the extreme circumstance.   We don't think about the consequences that entail until afterwards, when we have that nawing feeling that something isn't right when we go before the Father. 

Its because when we choose to sin, we forget the promises we have when we are walking in His Kingdom.  We forget about all that God has given us, and in the same sense forget Him.  And He turns His back on us for a time until we are ready to repent, because He cannot look at our sin.  But, He doesn't forget us. 

When we repent, He remembers only who we are in Him. He doesn't remember the sin.  We might remember but we aren't to with any confiction as its been taken care of and we are in freedom. 

A good example of what happens is in Zech 3:1-5.  Zechariah sees a vision of Joshua standing before the Angel of the Lord and satan is on his right side to oppose him. All Joshua sees is the eyes of the Angel of the Lord, and can't hear a word that satan is telling him.  Joshua in his fithly dirty rags is standing before the King of Kings and looking at Him while the King asks for a clean clothes and a turban for his head. 

Before this, the Lord turns to satan and rebukes him.  satan has no legs to stand on, no accusations to put forth for the King of Kings had thrown them as far as the eyes could see.   They are no more in the eyes of the King. 

So when you are feeling like you haven't done enough after you've repented, read Zech 3:1-5.  Look in the eyes of the Lord, and satan will have no ground to stand on.
