Hello folks! So the other day I was on YouTube just browsing and I came across a Bishop T.D. Jakes sermon. It was so truthful and deep, let me tell ya. I was like you better preach Bishop! (No, seriously.) I was so drawn into what he was preaching about I actually looked at it twice to take notes to fill you in about 3 people in your life!!!! Hold on tight, cause you have to buckle up for this ride hunny.
LOOK OUT FOR THE CHARACTER IN PEOPLE.
Okay, so the first person that Bishop Jakes spoke about is your confidant, a person with whom one person shares a secret or private matter trusting them not to repeat it to others.
“You will have very few of these people in your life! Your confidant is the person who will love you unconditionally. They are strictly into you. They are your up or down, right or wrong. They are into you. They are in for the long hall. If you get in trouble, they will get in trouble with you. They will come see you in the jail house; they will come get you out of the crack house. You can open up and share anything with your confidant. Your confidant is entwined with your life. They will continue to encourage you when you’re right, and they will get in your face when you are wrong. If you have at least three of these people in your lifetime you are a blessed somebody. You will never be who God called you to be without them.”
The next person that Bishop Jakes spoke about is your constituents, a component part of something.
“They are not into you; they are only for what you are for. They will walk with you and work with you and labor with you. But never think that they are for you! It is important that you know that because when they meet someone else that will further their agenda, they will leave you, and hook up with them. Remember, they were never for you only for what you were for. Those are your constituents, throughout your life if you’re not careful, especially if you’re broken you will mistake your constituents for your confidants and you will think that they are for you, when they are only for what you’re for. And by the time you get through with falling in love with them they will break your heart and hook up with someone else who is for what they are for. It was never about you, it was about the cause you represented, you were only beneficial because you were for what they were for.”
Last but not least, Bishop Jakes spoke about comrades, a member of the same political group especially a communist or socialist group or a trade union.
“These people are not for you or what you are for; it’s just that they are against what you are against. They will team up with you, to help fight a greater enemy. Do not be confused by their association. They will only be with you until the greater victory is accomplished. These people are like scaffolding. They come into your life to fulfill a purpose and when the purpose is complete the scaffolding is removed. Do not be upset when the scaffolding is removed, because the building always remains.”
“Expect the constituents and the comrades to leave you and dessert you after a while. Do not be upset when they don’t react to you when you tell them your dreams because they don’t care they were never for you in the first place.”
BE CAREFUL WHO YOU TELL YOUR DREAMS TOO MMM..K!!
“If you tell it to a constitute person they will dessert you and fulfill your dreams, without you. And if you tell it to a comrade they won’t care or support you at all they aren’t for you just what you’re against and that’s if it is beneficial to them.”
“If you find a few people in your life with whom you can share your dreams with, you’re a blessed somebody! I can tell you how to identify people who are really for you. If they are really for you they will weep with you when you weep and they will rejoice with you when you rejoice! WHEN YOU WALK IN A ROOM WITH GOOD NEWS, STOP BEING HAPPY FOR A MOMENT AND WATCH THEIR REACTION!!! IF THEY ARE NOT REJOICING WITH YOU, THEN THEY ARE NOT HAPPY FOR YOU! SHUT YOUR MOUTH, AND WALK BACK OUT OF THE DOOR!”
“Most important be careful who you ask to pray for you!! Because you might be asking a hater! (It was funny when Bishop said that, go head Bishop.) And no hater wants you to succeed, they will only pray for you’re down fall. You want people to pray for you who really want you to be blessed, who want you to be an overcomer.”
“God is so faithful He will always send you somebody. Think of someone who has helped you! Be thankful for the people God sends.
DO NOT WORRY ABOUT THE PEOPLE HE TOOK!!”
