A common phrase these days – Man of God… if some people call themselves man of GOD and you help them to echo such sentiment – Who are you? Man of evil?
When can you start relating to your GOD as GOD wants you to relate? GOD loves you with opened arms, walk into those arms and place your head on the chest of GOD forgetting all your pains and sorrows.
There is nothing like MAN OF GOD but SERVANT OF GOD. Those that GOD sends on an errand to GOD’s children that is you. They are servants just like SERVANTS before them.
Is the Man of God YOUR God?
Today, in most places we equate these people to GOD, we worship them instead of worshiping GOD, we bow to them as we bow to GOD instead of bowing to you as true image of GOD.
You see what happens when you elevate man instead of GOD, your focus is shifted away from you, you see only MAN, you no longer see GOD. Petty issue warranting you to go on your kneels and talk to GOD about is taken to the ‘MAN OF GOD’. Whatever he says is final, his voice is the voice of GOD, what happens next – Abuse as we see in many churches today.
May the GOD you serve continue to open your eyes to see through the deceits of our time and help you not to fall prey into wrong hands.
