Many of us are a far cry from being a “crazy yeller”. And to be quite frank, we would like to keep it that way. But, every single one of us should present ourselves before the Lord and say, “Lord, take my tongue and speak through me—even if I need to appear a bit crazy to the onlooking world.” When the world threatens to cancel us, or worse, kill us—there is a human propensity to self-protect, to hide in a closet, to shut our trap, and to bury our testimony in the catacombs of rationalization. But, example after example is supplied in Scripture for the construct of the “crazy yeller”—the man or the woman that is God’s workmanship, available to God to do whatever God requests, to speak whatever God needs spoken, at the very moment God needs it to be done. Would we be willing to be built after the pattern of the “crazy yeller”?
