Pastor Shayne Cunningham
We can all agree that doing things God's way always brings the BLESSING into play over our lives. The Body of Christ will shout yes and amen in a chorus of agreement whenever the preacher would suggest such a thing. Yet in our agreeing with this statement, how many today are not actually in the place where God is wanting to put them? There is this verse of scripture in 1 Corinthians 12 : 18 that is so often passed over because it doesn't quite fit our decision to be where we want to be. "But now God has set the members, each one of them, in the body, JUST AS HE PLEASED." Here is the key, God sets, each one, in the body, AS HE PLEASES. He sets everyone as He pleases, where He wants them. How powerful would the Body of Christ be in the Nations if we obeyed God in His placement of ourselves in the Body. If we, the Body of Christ would allow the head, Jesus, to put us where He wants, the church would be unstoppable. Each member working in the position and place as He guides. Not partnering where we want to but where He leads. It's past time for the Body to fulfill 2 Chronicles 7 : 14, "If My people who are called by My name, will humble themselves and pray and seek My face."
Be BLESSED, Shayne
