These here are my desires
And I will give them up to you this time around
And so I'll be found
With my stake stuck in this ground
Marking the territory of this newly impassioned soul
Mumford & Sons - Roll Away Your Stone
This song is pretty amazing, I have enjoyed it for a while now but I am seeing some great prophetic meaning to it.I mean of course not everything is spiritual but this song affects me big time in this time in my life! God speaks to me in so many creative ways (and i'm sure He talks to you too/or would if you'd let yourself see it).
What is Father God telling me? "ASK!" "I have put amazing desires in you my daughter, stop the worrying, you are abiding in me and you are co-creator and co-heir... DO, LIVE, BE. I will direct you but you have to MOVE, I can not direct you if you do not move."
Luke 12:32 says
Fear not, little flock; for it is your Father's good pleasure to give you the kingdom.
We can give ourselves permission to BE AWESOME, to DREAM, take steps... we are trusted to act and create in this world, now. God calls us to serve ON PURPOSE not just to float through dazed and confused. Maybe y'all know this and I am just talking for myself… I sure know I needed to encounter this. I am in a time in my life where I am dreaming again, asking myself 'what are your desires and what ignites your passion?’. I am learning to make small steps to succeed in the plans God has for me.
I am also looking at- 'What makes you scared to death?' (Healthy motivating scare- for me its public speaking/public anything really, leading people in something on the spot...) That which frightens me... I know God wants to use and make STRONGER and I also know that our enemy wants to use it to scare us, intimidate us, and freeze us so that we would not grow or beat the fear. God wants to use me in that area while I'd like to not move into that "scary“ territory He says to me "Take it on girl, learn and grow in that area. You might fall and there's no problems in falling. You will get up and learn to walk and then run." And that “scary” place is actually something I long to do but the fear of people, fear of rejection, fear fear fear freezes me (but deep down it is a longing and God knows it that’s why HE helps me step out in boldness)
Anyways…We got to GO FOR IT. Charge against our fears and take our rightful place as the over-comer.
Love; it will not betray you dismay you or enslave you, it will set you freeBe like the MAN YOU WERE MADE TO BEThere is a design, an alignment to cry of my heart to see, the beauty of love as it was made to be
Mumford & Sons - Sigh No More
HELLO!!! Read that! Re- read that! Take it in. That is our cry.
Love this song quote too! We are NEW and have the option to walk in that newness.
This season has been hard for me because I realized I had been walking like a zombie. I had been so stressed out about "pleasing God" and doing "His will", all the while God is and was PLEASED with me but would love for me/us to do what He created us to do and enjoy it. I think there is a time when we suffer a bit but I don't believe that is for us for all of life. I think there are so many times and seasons, "good" and "bad"... it all starts in our minds and whether or not we see with the eyes Jesus has provided for us and with the mind Jesus had provided us.
Ok, perhaps I am rambling on BUT I know
-both these lyrics are powerful truths
-the verse from Luke helps my faith and hope in my Father and King, and it is a NOW promise and continual in Jesus...
- I WILL give, continually, my desires to King Jesus and hold onto hope and ask continually for that which God has put into me for eternity.
-I am realizing deep dreams that I didn't even know I had, dreams I had forgotten, and skills I had forgotten that I had
-I have begun to see the fears and lies that have tried to trap me for too long
It time to move on, stop hiding under a rock, and rise to greatness.
