Pentecostal Perspective: HELP! I Cant Take It Any Longer! Lord Save Me!

Tragedies Are Common Place. All Kind Of Diseases, People Are Slipping Away.
economies Down, People Can’t Get Enough Pay, As For Me, All I Can Say Is, “thank You, Lord For All You’ve Done For Me”.

As I sit here and look back over the years events, I cant help but imagine if I am the only one going through certain issues. My finances are jacked up, my living situation is a mess, I seemingly don’t know if I am coming or going at times. Sometimes it appears that I cant even get a prayer through. All I can do is just sit back and cry and wonder why. Why Lord. I just cant take it any longer. I call friends and I get the same response from them over and over again “You know man, I’m going through too”. One close female friend of mine in fun said “I wonder if God is playing some kind of cruel joke on me, POPE, I just cant take it any longer, I literally was going to kill myself the other day, LITERALLY!” I have friends that have been evicted from their homes. I have family who wont even speak to me. Is this what being saved is all about? What in the world can I learn from this. Oh, and lets not mention my church life. A HOT MESS! My pastor is going off. The missionaries are fighting one another and as always, there are individuals who are seeking TITLES instead of seeking the face of GOD. Trying to prostitute the Church Of God with gimmicks and tricks. You turn on the TV and every day there is some major religious leader falling by the way side. What the heck is going on???????????? These are issues that the SAINTS are going through that no one seemingly is wanting to touch. No one wants to preach about.

Oh my dear brother and sister help is on the way (and I’m preaching to myself right now). Something profound happened to me the other day. I forced myself to read the scriptures and noticed that there were some things that I needed to do in order to be in right standing with the Lord. For instance, I learned according to the Word that “trials come to make you strong”. Huh? What? Uh, I aint trying to go through no more trials. I am so tired of tribulations. Yet I found strength in knowing that God is making me the leader that he has called me to be. I am going to be blessed in my “go through”. Sure, we can say “The devil meant it for evil but God is meaning it for my good” but saints, that’s a real statement.

Right now, lets all do this. Lets close our eyes and take a deep breath. Lets then begin to think about the early 80’s and 90’s. Remember all those times we were going through then. Did not go come through for you then? YES HE DID! Now lets fast forward to September/October 2008. The junk that we are going through cant even be compared to the GLORY that GOD is going to get out of our lives when its all said and done. GO THROUGH CHILDREN. Suffer a little while. Your mother is dead? Your bills are due? You got an eviction notice. They are fixing to reposes your car? All those things God can handle. But you have to do one thing for the Lord and that’s to seek Him first. Seek ye first the Kingdom of God and all of his righteousness and all these things (houses, cars, land, money) will be added unto you). DON’T GIVE UP! In a little while Jesus will be coming back to take us all home to live with Him forever. The joy of the Lord is your strength! Count it all joy when fiery trials come your way knowing that they only exist for a little while. God is about to blow your mind (whether McCain or Obama is in office) GOD HAS YOUR BACK! He promised He will not leave you nor forsake you.

With that said, do something for the Lord today. Witness about his soon coming. Don’t let those Jehovah Witnesses and Mormons beat us at our own game. You don’t see them pulling the shades down and crying about not being able to pay their bills (and they aint even got the Holy Ghost speaking in tongues). Don’t let those Muslim brothers selling those bean pies and Final Calls on the street corner out witness and serve you. Live to be a blessing to someone else. Live to SERVE! Paul was a BOND SERVANT a literal SLAVE to the will of Christ (and remember now, he use to persecute the Christians prior to his conversion). Don’t blame anything on the devil any longer. TAKE CHARGE OF YOUR OWN DESTINY knowing that when you are in HIM all things will be good and work out for YOUR GOOD!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! THANK YOU JESUS. With that said, hold on. Help is on the way. Guess what? God wants to use you in this season to help someone who is not filled with the Holy Ghost to come out of their mess. God wants to use you to be a blessing to someone else. God wants to put His perfect will in you. Yield yourself to the things of God and watch Him blow your mind. LITERALLY!

Now if you were not encouraged by what I just wrote, its all good. I know I just encouraged myself and feel like dancing all over this airport. Rejoice in the Lord always, and again I say REJOICE!!!!!!!!!

Everyting is going to be alright ya hear!
