When I say own your relationship with God what I really mean is be confident in the way God relates to you. Many people struggle with this. Often times we try and hide the uniqueness of our relationship with God Just because it doesn’t look like other people’s relationship with God. Sometimes other people will treat you like a weird person because the way that God deals with them isn’t the way that he deals with you and they feel like if it doesn’t look like what God is doing with them then it can’t be God. Despite all of these things it is very important for you to own your relationship with God because the unique way in which he relates to you is where you get your relevance from.
God is not trying to make carbon copies of his children where every one is the same. We are a reflection of God not of each other! You have to be bold in what you and the Holy Spirit have going on. Many people that walk with God are very misunderstood. Even when you look at the life of Jesus he was very misunderstood by just about, well…everyone.
WHY IS THIS?
You will be misunderstood because God is speaking to you about things that he is not speaking to others. You will be misunderstood because God is instructing you to do things that he is not instructing others to do. People do not have the revelation behind your actions, thoughts and words which means they won’t understand why you do what you do. Sounds just like Jesus right? Right!
When you walk with God on a deeper level not only do you become a mystery to the people of the world but often times you become a mystery to those that are even saved! Yes that’s right and it’s biblical. Look at Jesus and his disciples. They walked with each other on a day to day basis but even though that was the case how many times did we see the disciples marvelling, questioning the meaning of things and even asking themselves what manner of man Jesus was? Plenty!
The heart beat of this article today is this; Be confident in how God deals with you. Whatever he instruct you to do, do it! People may understand or they may not understand but that’s not important, what’s important is you pleasing the Father and changing the world!
