TWITTER…wisdom…from the bluebird on Twitter to the Courts of Heaven…better get praying!
“Curse not the king, no not in thy thought; and curse not the rich in thy bedchamber: for a bird of the air shall carry the voice, and that which hath wings shall tell the matter.” (Ecclesiastes 10:20 KJV).
That is a very interesting verse in the Bible. God’s Word is true and every question is answered in the Bible…the basic instructions before leaving earth. Several weeks ago, I was thinking about the bird in the air, and thought, “Wow, God in His infinite wisdom gave us the revelation for today about TWITTER…the little blue bird…that carries our words everywhere on social media.”
Coffman’s Commentary on Ecclesiastes 10:20 says:
This is a warning against any kind of seditious talk against a monarch and against even the entertainment of any uncomplimentary thoughts regarding such a ruler; because, the nature of human gossips being what it is, the account of your words will be relayed to the ruler, “In a manner as rapid and as marvelously as if birds or winged messengers had carried the information to the king.”
No matter if it is a “tweet” on Twitter or the Holy Spirit reveals something to us as one of His servants, the bible makes it clear that the Holy Spirit reveals all hidden truth and shows us things to come. (see John 16:13…take time to read John chapters 14-16).
If there ever was a time we need to pray as a nation, it is now. Instead of attacking and maligning, we must be praying as God tells us in His Word. Why would anyone in their right mind try to destroy someone? They are deceived by the enemy.
There is a destructive element in griping and complaining all the time about the government, or anything else for that matter. While we do need the facts, we learn to operate in truth. Truth is God’s Word and His ways. Truth is doing the right thing at all times. Truth is being the same person in private as in public. Truth takes a stand with God.
A heart problem will eventually show up if it is not fixed, repaired, or replaced. A heart problem eventually shows up in actions as well. The Bible tells us that whatever is in the heart will come out of the mouth. Listen to your words and check yourself. Don’t check your neighbor. Check your own heart. We each have to stand before God as individuals.
Jesus taught us by His own example. He showed what true leadership is….action not a position. Jesus, the Son of God, taught us that we lead by serving.
When Jesus wrapped the towel around him and began to wash the feet of his own disciples, he was teaching a principle for all time. Even though we are clean on the inside as born-again believers, we must daily cleanse our walk through spending time in God’s presence where we are empowered to live a spirit-filled life in a world of hurting people. Where we are not so distracted by technology that we can hear God at the slightest whisper at the door of our hearts. Where we are empowered to live with eternity in mind at all times.
Check your own heart….always stay humble and kind. We must constantly focus on loving and leading as Jesus Christ does….and renew our minds so our words line up with God’s Word. When we remember that how we treat people is how we are treating Jesus Christ, we have a wakeup call.
Pray for the President of the United States, President Donald J. Trump and all those in authority. We are called to pray for leaders across the land. If you live in another nation and are reading this, pray for your leaders. Pray for each other. Stand in the gap through prayer. Be kind. The secret to love is kindness.
“First of all, I urge that petitions, prayers, intercessions, and thanksgiving be offered on behalf of all men for kings and all those in authority, so that we may lead tranquil and quiet lives in all godliness and dignity” (1 Timothy 2:2…A CALL TO PRAYER)

While pain may push us to pursue purpose, and any mess may turn into a message, our foundation must be in JESUS CHRIST and HIM ALONE. In my first book, GOD’S PRICELESS TREASURE (How To Overcome Challenges, Be Transformed and Know Your Purpose), the message the Holy Spirit gave me is this: PAIN: Pain aligns us IN NEED of God. It is only God who can save us and make us whole.
When any of us are stricken with some crushing pain, crisis, hardship, or trial and we don’t know what to do, it is paramount to remember the words of Jeremiah: “I know, O Lord, that a man’s life is not his own; it is not for man to direct his steps.” (Jeremiah 10:23).
The absolute worst thing we can do in times of trouble is to make hasty decisions and to take whatever course of action seems easiest at the time. Remember, God has promised to lead us.
In 1 Samuel 30, David was in extreme duress and had wept till he had no strength left. All those with him did the same. You can read the story. Even those around him wanted to stone him, but David encouraged himself in the Lord, chose to worship, inquired of God and God gave David specific instructions. David obeyed and recovered all. (*Note: … those with him wanted to stone him and out of all of those men, David was the only one mentioned that turned to the Lord). Time doesn’t heal our wounds; it is in turning to the LORD where we find strength and help in times of trouble.
We must remember that our life is not our own, and that God has promised to lead us. I don’t know what you are facing, but God does. Turn to Him and He will give you direction. He will direct your steps. If you sense a small unsettling nudge in your heart, don’t ignore it. It may save your life and future.
You may be seeing injustice all around you and sense God nudging you to step out into a new career to be the change. You may be facing a business decision and need help from God and clarity. You may be deciding which job to take, where to move, or what church to connect with in a new city. One thing I know for sure, God will lead you. He will also connect you will people to help you succeed as a team.
HIS love and mine,
