No One Can Take It From You

No One Can Take It From You

When you do that thing
So unique and natural to you
It may be insignificant to you
But no one can take it from you;

When you see that opportunity
That resonates with your hope
Maybe you don’t understand why
But no one can take it from you;

When you dream that dream
You pray there's a means for the end
No one else may understand it
And no one can take it from you;

When words or actions
Trigger something inside of you
It may be different from everyone’s expectations
Yet no one can take if from you;

What ever it is
That pulsates in your heart
Focus on the end
And ask for His direction;

It might not be clear to you now
You might not get everyone’s support
But as long as it is from Him
No one,
Not one,
Can take it from you.


He who began a good work in you will continue until the day of Jesus Christ, developing that good work and perfecting and bringing it to full completion in you…[Philippians 1:6 AMP].

I really needed the scripture you quoted.

I do indeed need to focus and continue asking for directions, as the end result can only be good.

There is no photocopy of God's plan for any man. Our God is the God of all plans and that is why He will never do copy and paste. I believe all that you have written and more importantly, trying to live by it.

Fashinga said...

"For I am persuaded that neither death, nor life, nor angels, nor principalities, nor things present, nor things to come, nor powers, nor height, nor depth, nor any other creature, shall be able to separate us from the love of God, which is in Christ Jesus our Lord."

Geebee said...

It might not be clear to you now
You might not get everyone’s support
But as long as it is from Him
No one,
Not one,
Can take it from you.

I had to repeat that last stanza. Yes indeed. What’s yours is yours, especially when it is the Most High who’s made it yours and NOONE, not even the devil can take it from you (me). . . His good work in us is ongoing and we need to relax and worry not while the Master does his business. Thanks for the inspiration

@Joicee: You’re most welcome

@Adedayo Adeniyi Nigeria: Yeah, there is no photocopy of God’s plan for me. Me too I am trying to live by believing no one can take His purpose from me.

@Fashinga: Look forward to having you back. Thank you…

@David C Brown: How very applicable…nothing can separate us from the love of God…

@Temite: You are welcome…

Rita said...

No, no one can take it from you. 'tis perculiar to you, why you are 'defined'.

No one can take it from you, just as you are the only one to offer it. Will you?
