Is not this the carpenter, the son of Mary, the brother of James, and Joses, and of Juda, and Simon? and are not his sisters here with us? And they were offended at him. But Jesus said unto them, A prophet is not without honor, but in his own country, and among his own kin, and in his own house. And he could there do no mighty work, save that he laid his hands upon a few sick folks, and healed them.” Mark 6:3-5
There is something common and yet lethal about attacks against the destiny that emanates from the closest of our circles. Many times we look for attacks from without and that’s what gives power to the internal attack; the element of surprise. Delilah is supposed to love you, so her being used as a weapon against you becomes the most powerful tool in the enemy’s hands. The problem many have is in that they do not know when it’s time to leave home when it’s time to leave that group of friends you grew up with; or that company that taught you “everything,” to the degree they feel you have nothing to teach them.
The greatest enemy to the King, in his foundational time of rule, is the brothers that know him as a Shepard Boy. My exhortation to you this morning is that you would no longer feel obliged to serve a people unable to receive what you carry while creation is awaiting your manifestation. It is toxic to give audience to those that see the nature of the old man in you. Remember you are called to show off his divinity, and not your humanity. Anyone that constantly affirms you of your humanity will limit your ability and divine purpose.
It is, therefore, my prayer for you this morning, that the Lord would remove you from those that are familiar with what you carry and bring you into a place where you are relevant and essential!
He keeps on doing great things!
