The Wisdom of the ‘Mad people’
2 Kings 9:11-13 NKJV
“Then Jehu came out to the servants of his master, and one said to him, ‘Is all well? Why did this madman come to you?’ And he said to them, ‘you know the man and his babble.’ And they said, ‘A lie! Tell us now.’ He said… Thus says the Lord: ‘I have anointed you king over Israel.”’ Then…they blew trumpets, saying, ’Jehu is king!’”
Dealing with the unbelieving in the world is always a challenge for the believer. As you grow in the Lord, you change. That change is supernatural and if you show who you are truly becoming, you will look ‘mad’ and ‘weird’ to those around you. Most believers try to hide this new heavenly person they are becoming for as long as they can. They speak the language of heaven in Church and among other believers and the language of the street everywhere else. Beloved you cannot hide it forever. The person you are being changed into, is the person you really are. I urge you to reveal who you are to all those around you. Yes, they will think you are ‘mad’. Just look what happened in the times of the kings of Israel who were wicked. Those who truly followed the Lord were considered weird. Those who were ministers or prophets were considered mad babblers. They were mocked and scorned. Yet when they spoke, they were believed. When Elisha sent one of his prophet messengers to anoint the Commander of the army as king, all the captains of the army were sitting with him. They sat and mocked the prophet and asked what he wanted. When Jehu was dismissive, calling him a babbler, the captains did not accept it. Although they did not show respect to the prophet, they knew that what he spoke would happen. The minute they knew the prophesy that Jehu was to be king, they jumped up with all speed. They immediately blew trumpets and proclaimed Jehu king.
I share this story, because I believe that it will be like this in the coming season. If you stand up and be who you truly are and are called to be, you will be mocked and called mad, but you will be believed. On the surface, people who may not seem to respect you, will listen to your every word, believe it and act on it. Don’t sit on the fence, beloved, make a stand today.
God bless you,
