Angry Mama

    My daughter Shawn, gave me an Angry Mama microwave oven cleaner for Christmas and I absolutely love this funny thing! She looks really angry. It’s like she’s fit to be tied about the dirt and is not quitting till it’s clean. All you do is remove her head, add water and vinegar, put the head back on, and run it in the microwave. At the end, simply wipe off the nasty stuck-on yuk and your oven is clean. It’s crazy! It’s effective and it’s so easy!

    That got me thinking about someone I know. There’s always been something not quite right about her, yet the Lord uses her mightily. Her wisdom has changed the lives of many people, yet I had a reservation about something I couldn’t identify. As I became more aware of the Holy Spirit’s gift of discernment and how it works, by grace, I began to understand my own reactions to people and things in a spiritually correct manner.

    First, when we discern a thing, the purpose one way or another, is to pray. I asked the Lord how to pray about this person and this is how He handled it in me. Your job, Carol, is to intercede. If I show you something, your only reaction is to pray. You don’t talk to another person, you don’t form a human opinion, you ask Me what your position is in this. I am sovereign. I can use anyone for my purposes, whether they are completely free or not. No one is instantly holy, it is a process of overcoming life experiences, pain, fear, and opinions wrongly formed. I look at the heart, man looks at the outward appearance. You all have flaws, human idiosyncrasies, yet I use those flaws and make them into aptitudes for my glory. I deliver, and I make testimony from nothing. Never judge another by your discernment or any other thing. Have no criticism ever, just pray. You would not see an issue if I did not trust you to follow through. I will cause someone to pray out the things that hold you captive, as you pray out the freedom for another. It’s a partnership with Jesus who intercedes for all of you. You have a gift with a purpose. Like the angry mama, this gift goes to intercession and deep cleans without making a sound. Prayer steams off dirt and stains. It brings all the yuk to the surface, so it can be wiped away. Vinegar is sour, but it dissolves soil and leaves a sweet smell of cleanness behind.

    If you see something off in a person, be vinegar to sin. Call off deception, fear and confusion. Pray deeply, hold them up and ask that blessings be lavished upon them. Cancel the plan of the enemy and glorify the Lord. Love them effectively in prayer. Remember that love covers a multitude of sins. Perfect love casts out all fear. Partner with Jesus to render a sweet smelling, clean vessel, for His glory. Hugs.
