Acts 22:10 “And I said, ‘aWhat shall I do, Lord?’ And the Lord said to me, ‘Get up and go on into Damascus, and there you will be told of all that has been appointed for you to do.’”
“Get up” and “Go”
When we find Jesus we have many of these moments where He reveals Himself to us and it knocks us to our knees’ and He is always faithful to say to us “Get up” and “Go”
Many times we get stuck at the get up and look back at what has just happen… making excuses, blame shifting, being critcal of others or simply give up. God is asking more of us then just to “Get UP” He is commanding us to “Go” take from the lesson that you have learned and share it with others.
Paul’s life up to this point was one of great focus, passion, and proud. Yet God in His wisdom brings him to his knees, but does not leave him there. When God does a work in all of us He does not leave us there. I believe it is God’s passion to build you UP so that you can “Get UP” and “Go”.
He is a God who is into establshing us on a firm foundation which is Jesus. Therefore it is not acceptable to God to have us just “Get UP” we are getting up for a purpose and that is to “Go”
I have alway’s been intrigued by people who can do quick math. I have always wanted to be that guy! It is a great feeling when someone ask a math problem and you are the first to answer. It is like you are the math genius in the room. Then they ask another math problem and someone else gets it right first and you respond like everyone else responded when you got it right… lucky guess.
And do not seek what you will eat and what you will drink, and do not keep worrying. For all these things the nations of the world eagerly seek; but your Father knows that you need these things. But seek His kingdom, and these things will be added to you. http://bible.us/Luke12.29.NASB
When it comes to our needs in life and those things that seem to keep us worried, God has a very simple solution. I have heard it called “Kingdom Economy”. It does not exactly add up as we would add things up! the more I look at the scripture it has nothing to do with adding anything but rather seeking.
The word “Seek” means – “to go in search of, to try to discover, to try to acquire” it is not about gaining things and coming to God with something but rather abandoning everything and going in search of His Kingdom and walking away having Him add all that is necessary in life!
So today if you are in need of something remember it’s not about Addition but rather about Seeking the One who can add!
