Why we Ought to Celebrate Our Singleness

While writing, the description for “Celebrating Singleness”, I got so into trying to get the message across as to why we ought to be celebrating our singleness that this came about. I did not want to delete or many of you that were intended to read these words would not have read them. So here is why we ought to celebrate our singleness continued from the description that is posted.

We celebrate knowing that we are out there fulfilling the Great Commission that Jesus left us to do. Before He ascended to sit on the right hand of God, He said in Matthew 28: 18-20, “And Jesus came and spake unto them, saying, “All power is given unto Me in heaven and in earth. Go ye therefore, and teach all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father, and of the Son, and of the Holy Ghost: {teach… or, make disciples, or, Christians of all nations} Teaching them to observe all things whatsoever I have commanded you: and, lo, I am with you always, even unto the end of the world.” Amen.” Teaching, baptizing, making disciples out of ALL men, this we celebrate. We celebrate having stopped what we were doing and picking up the cross to follow God. We celebrate just saying, “Use me Lord, for whatever You want me to do.” We celebrate drinking from His cup. We celebrate knowing that when we are weary and when the load is a bit much, that we can go to Him. For Jesus has said to us in Matthew 11:28-30, “Come unto me, all ye that labour and are heavy laden, and I will give you rest. Take my yoke upon you, and learn of me; for I am meek and lowly in heart: and ye shall find rest unto your souls. For my yoke is easy, and my burden is light.” We rest assured in knowing what is also written in Psalm 23:2-3, “He maketh me to lie down in green pastures: he leadeth me beside the still waters. {green… Heb. pastures of tender grass} {still… Heb. waters of quietness} He restoreth my soul: he leadeth me in the paths of righteousness for his name’s sake.”

At this point most of you are jumping up and down rejoicing in the goodness of God. For you feel your Spirit confirming our role in the kingdom, knowing that there are crowns and thrones set aside for us. Knowing that we will be sitting right by the throne where we have always humble stood before while seeking to be in the presence of God. Where we have always wanted to be where those that stand before Him 24/7 saying to God, “And the four beasts had each of them six wings about him; and they were full of eyes within: and they rest not day and night, saying, Holy, holy, holy, Lord God Almighty, which was, and is, and is to come. {rest… Gr. have no rest} (Revelation 4:8) and to the ones that are continually worshipping the Son, “And I beheld, and I heard the voice of many angels round about the throne and the beasts and the elders: and the number of them was ten thousand times ten thousand, and thousands of thousands; Saying with a loud voice, Worthy is the Lamb that was slain to receive power, and riches, and wisdom, and strength, and honour, and glory, and blessing. (Revelation 5:11-12). For this we celebrate.

We celebrate knowing that God has equipped us with everything we need to fight the battles we come up against with satan. “Put on the whole armour of God, that ye may be able to stand against the wiles of the devil. For we wrestle not against flesh and blood, but against principalities, against powers, against the rulers of the darkness of this world, against spiritual wickedness in high places. {flesh…: Gr. blood and flesh} {spiritual…: or, wicked spirits} {high: or, heavenly} Wherefore take unto you the whole armour of God, that ye may be able to withstand in the evil day, and having done all, to stand. {having…: or, having overcome all} Stand therefore, having your loins girt about with truth, and having on the breastplate of righteousness; And your feet shod with the preparation of the gospel of peace; Above all, taking the shield of faith, wherewith ye shall be able to quench all the fiery darts of the wicked. And take the helmet of salvation, and the sword of the Spirit, which is the word of God: mystery of the gospel,” (Ephesians 6:11-17)

We celebrate knowing that we can lay all our cares, worries and troubles at the feet of Jesus and He will give us the comfort and peace we so need to go on. We celebrate knowing that He will give us the strength and courage to go on in His Name. We celebrate when we are going through, so the devil will get no victories in our lives.

We celebrate all of this for we know if we do not, we are leaving ourselves open to satan attacks. When we are not in constant fellowship with God, there are gaps that open that satan comes in. He uses loneliness, depression, thoughts of unworthiness, cares and thoughts of the world to get us bogged down so deep, that we feel that we are unworthy of going to God to remove the strongholds that satan has placed on us, with is exactly what satan wants us to do. He wants to take the focus off God, so that we lose our relationship with him and forfeit all the blessings, callings and gifts God has placed on to us. When that happens satan is satisfied that his mission is accomplished. If you are at this point right now and are just going through the motions of “serving” God, then I dare you right now, to stop what you are doing and call out to God for forgiveness and restoration. I want you to know longer give satan the victory over your lives. So now, I want all of you to bow your heads as I pray for every single saint out there.

Father, we come to you today, thanking You for ALL You have done for us. Thanking You for all the blessings and the doors, You have opened for us, Father we come to You right now humbly as we know how, asking You to forgive us. Father we pray that You remove all the strongholds, thoughts, feelings, obstacles and anything else that is hindering us from doing Your will Father. We ask that You cleanse our hearts of all the “garbage” that we have allowed satan to place in our hearts Father. We ask that You fill our hearts with Your Fruit of the Spirit Father. Father we ask that Your will be done in our lives. These blessings we ask in You Son Jesus Name. Amen.



If you died today, are you absolutely certain that you would go to heaven? You can be! TRUST JESUS NOW
