This message from my spiritual aunt Christine Caine could not have come at a better time. I have desperately wanted everyone to get on board with Warrior Women, the funds we have collected so far are alarmingly low yet the work we have to do is a lot. So here I was almost second guessing this vision, why aren’t people excited about this as I am? why aren’t my friends blasting up social media every second with the cause? (YET I have the most amazing, devoted, selfless friends in the universe) *get thee behind me lucifer*, and then this morning I was reminded whose applause matters.
I thought I would share with you this brilliant message from Coffee with Chris Caine.
It is so important that you know that you’re known by God because if you do not know that you’re known by God, you’re going to be really trying to be known by humans.
Our insecurities stem from not knowing that we are His beloved, that we are known by Him. The desire to be known out there comes from not knowing that He knows you.
“The more known and beloved I feel by God, the less I need to get that from humans.” We are all created by God with an inbuilt need to be known by God.
‘Sometimes we tweet nice little sayings such as I only live for the appraisal of One, and I think sometimes God will make sure that He silences the applause and appraisal of everyone and He will ask something like, ‘I AM still clapping, does it matter to you?’
God sometimes puts a divine silence on us and He asks, are you still going to be faithful to me even if you do not hear from humans? Will you continue to do it because I am giving you a Holy nod and I AM telling you that it’s okay? See, if we lose the ability to hear His voice, then we are of no value to Him in the places He has called us to occupy. We have got to have the ability to say ‘yes’ to God even if it’s ‘no’ to humans.
‘There are seasons when God will have to take you away, where you are unapplauded, uninvited, unappreciated, unwanted, unrecognized because how you act when you don’t have it all will determine whether you will continue to give Him praise when you do have it all.
