SENT FROM GOD NOT BY GOD
The Bible says, “In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God. The same was in the beginning with God. All things were made by him, and without him was not anything made that was made. In him was life, and the life was the light of men. And the light shineth in darkness; and the darkness comprehended it not. There was a man sent from God, whose name was John.” John 1:1-6, emphasis mine
Please pay special attention to the first part of the sixth verse, “There was a man sent from God…” A man of God does not have a message to deliver by God but from God. This seems to be the opposite with many today. They carry a message by God, not from God. Many are SENT BY GOD and not FROM GOD. They have a message to deliver on behalf of God, but their residence is not God. The man that makes full proof of Ministry is the Man of God, sent from God, and resides in God. The man who makes full proof of his business is the man who knows even if his brothers betrays him, and he finds himself in a pit, he cannot remain there. Because he knows his origin. His origin is from the palace, and he will end up in there.
The confederacy of the wicked kings could not stop Abraham. The shrewdness of Laban could not stop Jacob. The jealousy of Joseph’s brothers could not stop him. Pharoah in all his might could not stop Moses. Evil Hamman could not stop Esther. The poison of Jezabel could not Elijah. What was the reason, they understood their origin?
Dear child of God, do you understand your origin?
