Powerful Sermon – TD Jakes (Let it Go)

So I was struggling on the next post to write. I don’t write when am not inspired. This is because I do not rush for content and traffic but for something that can inspire you. I had a list of topics on my Keep, lots of them, but on a second glance there was nothing I could write about. It was then that I challenged myself, will my writing be the same as last year’s? Will I inspire people just the same way I did last year?

In my many day’s of inactivity I felt depreciated. Run down by this truck of idealess garbage but this one specific Monday evening, bedridden, I rush to a cyber. Not knowing why but I did. I Googled, ‘Powerful Sermons Youtube’ and this specific one by TD Jakes shows up. I only see friends post quotes from this bald headed man. I never open one tab on my browser, not two or three either but 7 or more. The most strange thing is that I don’t switch to any tab. I’m stuck to the sermon.

He starts by talking about mentality, he talks of how big firms in UK appoint their managers. He talks of how they look for people who will not take offense from others, persons who don’t feed their hearts with negativity, persons who are swift and let go, persons who wouldn’t make an enemy from every employee because of something they said or done. He says that they are aware of this because there is nothing as bad as putting small people in big positions.

He then talks of what these big positions call for. He says that these positions call for people who don’t have baggage by themselves. He says that, “God Will promote you according to your level of tolerance of pain and at the level you cannot handle pain, you lose your promotion.” He continues and says, “When you are asking for promotions you are asking for problems” something he calls, “New levels, new devils.” He teaches of how we should not expect new levels (promotions) and not expect the tire or struggle in which he quotes from  Luke 12:48

But the one who does not know and does things deserving punishment will be beaten with few blows. From everyone who has been given much, much will be demanded; and from the one who has been entrusted with much, much more will be asked.

in which the main excerpt was ‘To whom much is given, much is required.’ He continues to say that we should not let our history sabotage our promises and whatever we take in us must be able to eliminate and the moment we stop doing that we stop living, an example he gives of the inhalation and exhalation of air, eating and defecating, etc. He says that we have a system of elimination in every area except your heart so we should be wise in what we make our heart absorb.

“We are creatives, we can take matter and form into whatever thing we want. We are created in the image and likeness of our Creator but we take so much offense from the world. We in turn use all our energy to manage our pain. Instead this energy could go to our abundant and progressive lives. You are too big to think that small, you are too high to be that low, you are too great to be that little, you are too powerful to be that petty.”

“When Jesus teaches his disciples to be blessed he deals with their attitudes. If I was the devil, I wouldn’t fight with what God provides to you but rather I would fight your attitude because only that has the capacity to receive. Big people do not act small. When you’ve conditioned to think like a chicken you cannot fly like an eagle.”
Jakes talks about chickens, birds that pick anything from the ground as food. Birds that eat from what they excrete and all they end up is flapping their wings in despair trying to fly. Are you stuck to the same resolutions year after year? Are you stuck in the same position of incapacitation year after year? But what do eagles eat that they fly so high? What do they acquire in a single swoop to the ground? They get their food below but why do they reside too high?
Jakes educates that eagles make love in the air and asks why. He jokes that maybe God thought that they would reproduce chickens when they made love in the ground. He says that “Unforgiveness is like you taking poison and waiting for him to die.”
So are you an eagle? How low do you mingle with chickens by keeping baggage with you? By eating from what you excrete? This is a powerful note about chickens and eagles.
Don’t spend major time with minor people. If there are people in your life that continually disappoint you, break promises, stomp on your dreams, too judgmental, have different values and don’t have your back during difficult times, that is not a friend.To have a friend, be a friend. Sometimes in life as you grow, your friends will either grow or go. Surround yourself with people who reflect values, goals, interests and lifestyle.

When I think of any of my successes, I am thankful to GOD from whom all blessings flow, and to my family and friends that enrich my life.

Over the years my phone book has changed because I changed for the better. At first you think you’re going to be alone, but after a while new people show up in your life that make your life so much sweeter and easier to endure. Remember what your elders used to say, “Birds of a feather flock together.” If you’re an eagle, don’t hang around chickens: Chickens Can’t Fly!

So do you want to be writing the same resolutions each year? Do you want to stay stuck to the same boat? Do you still want to revolve around the same circumference? I hope this post inspired you. Share so that it can inspire others and don’t forget to subscribe.

I describe myself as simple yet complex, difficult to fathom and a hard nut to crack. I am made of unfailing love, one that sails my boat and oversees my flaws, one that binds me not on any law but nourishes my soul. I write from my soul, generally anything I feel I need to get off my chest most of which is based on my own life experiences, talents, and passions.
