Day 29: Entitled


I WANT what I WANT when I WANT it.

ENTITLEMENT SPEAKS.

Hmm.

And you know what,

at times I do act

ENTITLED.

I do WANT what I WANT.

I WANT everyone to LOVE JESUS.

I do WANT what I WANT.

I WANT HIS PEACE to fill the world.

I do WANT what I WANT.

I WANT what GOD WANTS.

Isn’t it all GOOD

that I WANT what GOD WANTS?

Aren’t I ENTITLED for GOD to give me what HE WANTS also?

But when I don’t get what

GOD WANTS

when I WANT it

then I get

DISCOURAGED

HOPELESS

HELPLESS

because

why won’t GOD give me what I WANT if it is what HE WANTS.

I am missing the point, as I am still making it about me.

Oh selfish me.

As I step back and look in the mirror

and look at my

ENTITLED self,

but

I see GOD looking right back at me

who has

ENTITLED me

when I least deserved it

as HE invited me

to step into HIS PRESENCE

to RECEIVE HIS SON

who covers me

with HIS ROBE

that makes me a member

of HIS KINGDOM

because of

GRACE:

UN~ENTITLED ENTITLEMENT!

GRACE~

GOD'S

"NOT WANTING

anyone to perish, but everyone to come to repentance" (2 Peter 3:9)

GOD WANTS what HE WANTS.

GOD has always WANTED you.

GOD WANTS everyone,

even though every one of us are so

UN~ENTITLED

in our fallen state

to get what we don't deserve,

but HE gives it to us anyway

because

GOD WANTS no one to perish.,

ENTITLED BY GRACE.

ENTITLED~

PRIVILEGED.

ACCEPTED.

PERMITTED.

So are we all ENTITLED to being HIS?

Oh YES.

All ENTITLED to the same CHOICE~

"For everyone who calls on the name of the LORD will be saved" (Romans 10:13)

Do we deserve this PRIVILEGE?

Oh not at all

because that is why it is called

GRACE~

A Gift Given. A Gift To Be Received.

I can still

WANT what I WANT when I WANT what GOD WANTS

and

continue

to RUN THE RACE

still ASKING GOD to save the lost

still ASKING GOD to bless others

still ASKING GOD to heal others

still ASKING GOD for what HE tells me to ask HIM for,

for HE delights in having a

RELATIONSHIP with all HIS kids

which ENTITLES us to a

RELATIONSHIP with HIM

IN JESUS CHRIST,

just because that is who GOD is.

Oh SUBMISSIVE ENTITLEMENT

takes the stance of HUMILITY

as we enter in GOD'S PRESENCE

wearing HIS LABEL

that we don't deserve,

but by GRACE.

The me & the you who HE has made

ENTITLED~

PRIVILEGED

ACCEPTED

PERMITTED to enter into HIS PRESENCE.

IN HIM I have all that I ever WANTED.

I can continue to WANT JESUS for everyone

&

I can continue to WANT what GOD WANTS

as I continue to

RUN THE RACE with

JESUS who I made the CHOICE to say YES to,

because that is what GOD has always

WANTED for me.

Oh UN~ENTITLED ENTITLEMENT~

that is why they

"CALL IT GRACE" (listen to the song below)
