Reflection Friday: Authority
As a young 7th grader, I was put into a Math class taught by a teacher who had taught Social Studies for 30 years. My mom didn’t think this would be the best move for my math career and wanted me to have a real math teacher. She spoke with the principal and my schedule was changed to a math class that had every brainiac rich kid that RMS had to offer.
I was terrified.
I ended up doing fine but initially when I was called to the board to do a problem, I would shuffle to the board with my head hung low and carefully reach for the chalk. I’d crack some joke and make the class laugh diverting attention from my inability to do the problem. Soon the math teacher would swoop in and do the problem with me so not to waste anymore time.
I feel that that’s the state of a lot of Christians today.
God has called us to the board, He’s given us this life to do.
We have needs and desires but we slowly walk to His throne, with our eyes grazing the floor and our heart full of fear.
The one thing that I feel God wants you to come away with this week is His directions in Hebrews 4:16.
Because we have the authority of Jesus inside of us, we have the authority to call God’s power upon situations in our lives. The Bible doesn’t say, “I will have pity on those who ask of me in a quiet, trembling, and meek voice. Those who’s hearts are full of fear will receive the desires of their hearts. Bless your heart.”
Eternity is waiting on you to believe it.
What was your biggest take-away this week?
I’m a book-shelving, former tap dancer, wanna be writer, singer, and banjo player, mother of 4, wife of 1, follower of Christ, walking in the shadow of the Proverbs 31 woman and redeemed by the grace and love of an Almighty God… just living the dream.
