The Lizard That Came To Early Morning Prayer Meeting

I arrived a bit late for early morning prayer meeting, where a sizable number of the saints were gathered to pray; then as I sat in the pew, there it was a lizard clinging to a tree planter near to the pulpit and it seemed to say, “I love to be present where the people of God are gathered to pray!” My response was, “Lord, I just want to smack it with my shoe, but it would cause quite a stir.”  The lizard stayed throughout the entire prayer meeting and at some point, as I began walking the floor in prayer, there it stood in my path clinging to the floor as if to say, “Lord, please do not let her stomp me with her shoes!” The Word spoke, “Do not put your foot on it!” Obediently I walked past, but I did not like the lizard being there! Just then the Word spoke from the book of Job 1:6-7 NKJ. (6)” Now there was a day when the sons of God came to present themselves before the LORD and Satan also came among them.” (7)” And the LORD said to Satan, “From where do you come?” So, Satan answered the LORD and said, “From going to and fro on the earth, and from walking back and forth on it.” The lizard that came to prayer meeting turned and stared at me as if to say, “you heard the word, I am present every time God’s people are gathered to pray!”  The Pastor raised the hymn entitled; Lord I want to be a Christian in my heart. Suddenly the lizard that came to prayer meeting made a quick dash to the left aisle of the church and before going out of the door looked again at me as if to say, “I am getting out of here, I do not want to be a Christian in my heart, ‘I am really the eyes for the shadowy world to see what you all are really doing for the Lord and to carry back a report. It seemed as if the lizard could not bear to hear the words, “Lord I want to be a Christian in my heart.” It turned again and gave a look which seemed to say, I must tell the boss that this church has some foot stomping soldiers who are armed and dangerous, I do not want to come back here ever again!” 

Abba Father Spoke, He said “My daughter, that was a demonstration of My love and mercy which is extended to everyone and every living thing. ‘I AM JEHOVAH ELOHIM! ‘Take note of how when you saw the lizard on the planter near the pulpit how you wanted to smack it and when you were walking the floor you wanted to stomp it under your feet. This is how My people treat sinners when they attend church, they want to put their foot on them, so they use their facial expressions and body language to convey their negative message like the lizard who came to prayer meeting. Witches and warlocks attend church services regularly and are not being saved and delivered because My people are failing to display my love like you My daughter failed to show love and mercy to the lizard that came to prayer meeting.” 

In your walk with Abba Father are you allowing the display of Jesus Christ to be in full operation as you cross paths with those who know not God? What do you do when you see a young man lying on the cold ground or the woman begging on the streets or the drunkard who shows up at church? What about the homeless and all the young men and women who are roaming the streets without a prospect of getting a job? Abba Father is concerned about them and our careless attitude toward them for He loves and cares about them just as much as he cares about you and me. This may shock you; God loves and cares about the witches and warlocks too! He hates sin but He loves people! The Word is speaking this time from John 3:16-17. (16) “For God so loved the world that He gave His only begotten Son, that whoever believes in Him should not perish but have everlasting life.” (17)” For God did not send His Son into the world to condemn the world, but that the world through Him might be saved.” 

I received my rebuke from Abba Father and humbly repented now I see from His perspective! Wherever you are on your journey take time out to examine yourself to see if you (me too) are lining up with His Word regarding how you are treating those whom you cross paths with daily as you walk to your divine destiny! “Lord, I want to be a Christian in my heart” keeps on resounding and the answer is ringing like a doorbell, “show love and kindness to everyone you meet, and it will be evident that you are a Christian in your heart!” 

The lizard that came to prayer meeting will not soon be forgotten! Pause for a moment to inhale, now exhale as you think about this! Much Love
