Jesus loved to tell stories and parables to teach important truths. There are times when a story can climb over a barricade or pierce a hard heart where blunt honesty would be deflected.
I find this truth refreshing, to be honest.
I love to weave stories and song together for Holy Spirit to use, and I believe that is a God given desire.
In this way, I am following in His footsteps.
Everywhere Jesus went, He spoke in parables, using relevant & relatable examples while relying on Holy Spirit to bring revelation to their hearers.
He also used questions when appropriate, and prophetic words as led, depending on the situation.
This Kingdom work isn’t as complicated as I once believed it was.
Every one who follows Him has a story, which when shared will reach the people just waiting to hear from someone further ahead than they are.
Our stories of freedom, restoration & redemption are in fact His Kingdom stories.
They may not yet be recorded in book format, but every time they are shared?
His Kingdom come is seen.
For it has come in the life of the one sharing their story.
Friend, YOUR STORY MATTERS.
If it doesn’t seem that exciting or relevant to you, let me remind you it is to the One who chased you until He caught you, buying your freedom from the past & radically changing your future.
EVERY THING, EVERYTHING, IS USED FOR HIS GLORY IN YOUR STORY. And mine!
