TODAY IS LET THAT BE THE REASON MONDAY
Humorously this expression arrived before me when one of my cousins was explaining to one of my sister’s friend (Marlo) how he was trying to get his life together, and he needed some help. She said to him “LET THAT BE THE REASON.” In so many words she was saying don’t try and deceive people "as he had done on numerous occasions." Immediately I thought this is going to be a blog one day, and here it is. “Thanks Marlo.”
We all have REASONS to why we do what we do, whether that is evil or good its still a REASON behind it. “But your own evil longings tempt you. They lead you on and dray you away. When they are allowed to grow, they give birth to sin. When sin has grown up, it gives birth to death.” (James 1:14-15 NIRV). Isn’t it interesting how sin must be birthed first, before it actually matures? Now LET THAT BE THE REASON we start being conscious of what is in us, and about to be birthed unto others, as well as what is being birthed around us awaiting for us to adopt it to become our own.
I remember this one particular time I was upset with someone close to me, and I (Ego-enemy) was thinking of all the reasons I should get even. One of my sisters “who was an addict at the time” was lying on the couch listening to me rant on and on. I shall forever remember what she said “Sister watch your motives.” Hold up wait a minute! The only reason I mentioned her addiction was, because I wanted you to understand how just as the enemy (Satan) is employing folk into evil, our God is just as proactive in employing those same folk into doing good. As soon as my sister said “watch your motives” my spirit confirmed that it wasn’t my sister “the addict” speaking but it was a divine power (Holy Spirit) employing her to speak. Some may inquire “How did I know it was a divine power baring witness to my spirit, considering my sister was an addict?”
First thing first, God has the ability to speak through anyone at anytime. Allow me to grant you with two fine scriptures to prove it. “The Lord saw that Moses had gone over to look. So God spoke to him from inside the bush. He called out, “Moses! Moses!”(Exodus 3:4). Be reminded Moses had escaped from Egypt because he was a murder. “Then the Lord opened the donkey’s mouth. It said to Balaam, “What have I done to you? Why did you hit me those three times? (Numbers 22:28). See how THAT BE THE REASON God employed my sister to speak to me, he was greatly concerned that I had already birthed sin “I was speaking on what I was about to do” and I was about to allow my very words to destroy the good that He was birthing in me, and who really knows what was being birthed in the person that had done the evil.
Wonderfully as the conviction of the Holy Spirit is, I immediately started to feel sadden that I wanted this person to feel as I was feeling. Also my sisters words “Watch you motives" resresonated within me throughout the day, and still does. Thank you Jesus! As I’ve evolved from one level of consciousness to the next I’m very much aware of the many REASONS to why ego-enemy desires for me to commit evil on evil. For when we comply to evil with evil we become just as the evil that was done unto us. “My Friends, don’t try to get even. Leave room for God to show his anger.” (Romans 12:19). “I punish people. I will pay them back. The time will come when their feet will slip. Their day of trouble is near. Very soon they will be destroyed. (Deuteronomy 32:35). By all means LET THESE SCRIPTURES BE THE REASON you refuse to revenge yourself.
I think it’s fair to say two of the most common REASONS good folk comply to evil is out of ignorance about knowing God, and whats in their own heart. “My people are destroyed because they don’t know me.” (Hosea 4:6). “A human heart is more dishonest than anything else. It can’t be healed. Who can understand it?”(Jeremiah 17:9). Please I beg of you, LET THAT BE THE REASON you start a journey of prayer/studying the word of God for yourself. All in all we dwell in a world that has many reasons to deter, destroy, and manipulate us into becoming one of them. “Can I know my mistakes? Forgive my hidden faults. Keep me also from the sins I want to commit. May they not be my master. Then I will be without blame. I will not be guilty of any great sin against your law.” (Psalm 19:14). Amazing as God always is, he wants us to become aware of the many evil REASONS that lie await in our ego (flesh) that desires to comply with the many evils that arrive unto our paths.
Please understand if your REASON is to get that which is good through evil than LET THAT BE THE REASON that evil partake of you. Just as if you’re REASON is get that which is good through good than LET THAT BE REASON that good partake of you. Please get this! God doesn’t want us to do anything from an evil heart, He wants us to do everything that is pleasing to him, and in return we’ll be guiltless before him, as well as others. Be reminded when the flesh (ego) partakes of the enemy (Satan) the REASONS to commit evil will always be more important than the REASONS not to COMMIT good. With this being said, LET THAT BE THE REASON you’ll take today and participate in good instead of evil.
