When Fire came along - the world warmed up to it
When the Wheel rolled in - the world revolved around it
When Polio vaccine was discovered - we made hero's of the scientist -
So it is with ANY of the world's accomplishments -- it's peoples are hero's - money, acclaim, platitudes are theirs.
NOT SO WITH GOD - NOT SO WITH HIS people - NOT SO with HIS MESSAGE -
God used humble, plain people. HE spoke only in time frames of many years apart - HE spoke to Moses in 40 year intervals . HE told the young unknown prophet , not to stop and receive platitudes or eat with residents of the town after he delivered the prophecy to the king of the future king Josiah -- no no no -- no worldly acclaim for HIS own --
GOD left us a legacy of faith in Heb 11 -- For HE says , we are not of this world, we are not citizens of this place but so-journers --- travelling and sharing HIS message and "looking" unto HIM ---
We go "hand in hand" with Moses, Daniel , Paul , David, Onesiphorus , Luke , Samuel , Timothy . Yes , we are "mighty" pulling down strongholds, and our victories are eternal but it won't make the evening news nor will we receive acclaim and like our GOD , we are in the shadows and the world has its own hero's .
Thankyou Lord , for letting us be pilgrims - may we be faithful.
