An Extra Burst of Sunshine: Welcome to God's Massage & Spa House


Today, I got an extra burst of sunshine. Today, I saw extra rays of light. I got up from bed, rolled off to the side and ran downstairs. I stepped outside into the backyard...I felt like God was preparing me for greatness...I may not know exactly what for, but He's definitely preparing me for something greater than this...

I began to sing, I began to dance. Have you ever felt days like that? Scriptures swooning around your head. "For who is like unto God?" Who is like You Oh Lord? No one and
nothing can ever be like You. Who owns the treasuries of snow? Who has seen the depths of the sea? Who was there before the earth was formed? No one can say they were there...no one knows what "being there" meant or even how it feels to have been there before the world was formed....only You Oh God... So this story is about a girl that was transformed...

Transformation takes place in an unseen place. It takes place where there are no eyes, in the insides of minds, hearts, and souls. That's how God transforms us...God was teaching this child that she did not have to see to believe. You can believe in those things that aren't seen, because the unseen controls the seen. She opened the book of Esther. She didn't know Esther was soaked in oils for a period of one year, in preparation just for her to go and see the king. She was first of all soaked in myrrh for six months, and then for the next six months she was soaked in perfumes and beauty preparations. It takes time for a person to prepare to see the king. Preparation takes place in your heart before you see the king. If God has prepared something for your future (something great), it won't take just one day for you to prepare for this great thing. It takes time to prepare. You will need to be fully prepared for the assigned task ahead. Just as one has to go through an orientation period before starting a job, so also there is an orientation period before each of us can accomplish the purpose God has destined us for. It took patience for Esther to actually sit there and let her custodian bathe her with preparation oils. Just imagine how she sat there, allowing servants to pour oil on her head and her body. She must have been wondering when the oil bathing would stop. There must have been at least once during the entire period where she would have thought inside her, "am I not smelling lovely enough already? Am I not beautiful enough already? I must be ready to see the king by now...or shouldn't I be ready?" But she still endured not seeing the king for an entire period of one year...she resisted from running straight into the king's chambers, until her name was called...

If there is something great that you feel God is preparing you for...just wait and be soaked in oil...God may not want you to enter into your assignment yet because you are NOT ready. Don't ask too many questions about why you aren't there yet. Just wait and be soaked in oil, this is the time for you to obtain more wisdom, knowledge, and understanding...just wait for the fullness of time to come...only then will your name be called, and you will answer...

It takes patience and time for you to be completely soaked in oil... Will you endure the wait?

words divinely inspired. nicely put babe! a period of waiting isnt always easy until you let the HOLY SPIRIT CARRY YOU THRU IT

Niyi said...

Wow!..Wow!.. Wow!... I agree with Mimi--- nicely put.

I was smiling as I read the post cos you know we sang "Who is like unto thee" at TERC this morning.. lol. Pretty powerful and assuring song.

I have heard it said that "God synchronizes His answers to accomplish His purpose". I guess it won't be far-fetched to say that "God synchronizes His 'preparation'(of us) to accomplish His purpose."

God help us as we try to achieve balance. The balance between waiting and moving, preparation and vision implementation.

Btw, TERC was fun.

Have a great day.

Niyi said...

Jaycee,
Oh, I must have missed the tease. What was it? (now you've got me thinking about the whole discussion time.. lol)

Yeah, I really learnt a lot as well. It is great to hear people's thoughts on these great doctrines and discussions. I never knew I would be able to get up at 4a.m three weeks in a row (picture surprise look........... lol). Fun! Fun!

Have a great weekend as well.

@ Pamela...thank God that you read this at the right time. It may feel hard, but you ARE an OVERCOMER. God has already predestined you to be empowered to overcome...even before you were born...
