The World Behind You

Standard

“The cross before you, the world behind you”

This week, I wanted to take a short break from our “Jesus Said” series and share one of my favorite prayers with you. I share it often when I speak to groups of women and it blesses me EVERY single time. I pray it speaks to you and rekindles a fire in your heart and reminds you of who you are in Him this Thanksgiving week.

I am a disciple of the Messiah.
I will not let up, look back or slow down.
My past is redeemed, my future secure. I am done with low living,
small planning, smooth knees, mundane talking, chincy giving and dwarfed goals.
I no longer need pre-eminence, prosperity, position or popularity.
I don’t have to be right, tops, recognized, praised or rewarded.
My face is set; my goal is sure.
My road is narrow, my way is rough, my companions few.
My God is reliable, my mission is clear.
I cannot be bought, compromised, detoured, delayed or deluded.
I will not flinch in the face of adversity, not negotiate at the table of
my enemy or meander in the maze of mediocrity.
I am a disciple of the Messiah.
I must go until He comes, speak of all I know of Him, and work until He stops me.
And when He comes for His own, by the grace of God, He will have no problem
Recognizing me, because my colors are clear.
-Unknown Zimbabwean Pastor
