Shoes Off!….Please!

Monday Morning Coffee©

Happy Monday people!
Do you take offence when you visit friends or family and they ask you to take your shoes off at the door? Do you outwardly complain or grudgingly comply?

Shoes are not just a fashion accessory in the literal sense; they represent who we are, our social standing, our background, our values, our principles and our experience; the very things that the Lord wants to change!

The burning bush must have been quite a spectacle to behold, but Moses had to take his shoes off before he could approach the miraculous.

Today most of us approach God wearing our designer shoes; expecting preferential treatment and some walk in carelessly with dirty shoes and muddy boots in total disregard for His sacred presence!

The Lord opposes the proud but gives grace to the humble.- (James 4:6)

If you want to experience the miraculous like Moses you must take your shoes off too!…..Even if they are Jimmy Choos or Loubs!

Prayer for the Week
Lord forgive for the times I have relied on my own importance and approached your presence without respect. This week teach me to be humble and take my shoes off like Moses so that I also can walk in the miraculous.

Rain!….Rain!

Happy Monday people!
Grab your hot coffee! …Let’s reflect! Weddings postponed, jobs lost, contracts on hold etc. Has this pandemic blown your best laid out plans out of sync?….You are not alone!

Mary was set to marry, her childhood sweetheart, wedding invites had been sent out and it was now public knowledge. Suddenly God changed the plans and Mary was now to birth a child out of wedlock! Her reputation was at stake! What would people say? How would she explain this?

God will oftentimes rain on our parade because He wants to parade His own glory. Mary submitted herself to God’s will and we should also do the same

“I am the Lord’s servant,” Mary answered. “May your word to me be fulfilled. (Luke 1:38)

Remember! God has no bad weather, even the thunderstorms (and pandemics) serve His purpose!

Sometimes our brollies’ need to come out on Parade Day…..Let it rain Lord!

PRAYER FOR THE WEEK
O Lord You hold the whole world in Your hands. I humbly submit my plans to you, interrupt them as and when You see fit in a way that Your name is glorified, and help me to be thankful.
