Daily Devotional – 2/13/15 “It has gotten real!”

I often time find myself looking back over devotionals I’ve written years ago and sometimes I can’t even remember writing some of them. Most times when I began to write, I never have a topic in mind; I simply put my hand to the keyboard and allow God to be manifested through me. See, I am just a nobody, a simple person living a regular life who was plucked up out of the pit I was in, shook out, the cracks in my clay pot were fixed and I was shined to look like new, (although I was the same on the outside, my inside was brand new), and God stood me back up on my legs and told me to go forth because there was work to be done. Yea, He pushed me and said go. Y’all this thang got real! He didn’t give me an assignment because He says it’ll change daily you just have to be willing to work; I am. He didn’t give me a place because He says there are people who need saving everywhere you just have to be willing to go; I’m willing. He didn’t give me a topic, He just said take this book with you and it’ll give you the Basic Instruction to Battle Life Effectively (Bible), I did. He even changed where I was, it’s called elevation. It got real! When I stopped running from His calling, I started reaping. When I stopped playing like I had time to get it right and actually start accepting God’s calling over my life; my possessions, positions, propositions, places and people changed … it got real!

Somebody will miss this but for the somebody who will get this … Stop playing with what God has told you to do, it’s about to get real! In the midst of you playing, your tears are about to turn into a full shout. In the middle of you playing with the gift that God has given you, He’s about to take you to a place that will blow even your own mind. Yea, in the middle of you playing with the anointing that has been cast over your head, God is about to rise up a king or a queen in the middle of the ghetto, a place somebody said you wouldn’t be nothing; watch this! In the middle of you acting like you don’t have anything to say, stop playing and open your mouth! Keep acting like you don’t have what it takes. Keep playing if you want, this spiritual thang has gotten real! In the middle of you playing, the Holy Spirit is about to set your spirit on fire! It’s not about to get real, it has gotten real! You just need to catch on… When will you stop playing?
