Sometimes when we have done all we can do, we stand. Speaking of winds though, I can see the finger of God ever so gently touch a spot of ocean with his fingertip and he can cause oceans to be various states of current.
Even as the LORD is wanting us to be current with his winds of change…. Even the waves and winds obey him….
The old order of King Saul took upon himself to do the sacrifice. King Saul was supposed to wait for the prophet to do the sacrifice. He disobeyed and did it anyway for the people and that was another symptom that he and his kingdom was horribly, spiritually sick.
Discipleship Is proven all over the Bible. You may have run away from your instructor because you were afraid; by running away you delay the opportunity.
People want instant discipleship. However after Discipleship 101 starts many run. The truth is, that very few want discipleship when they truly come face to face with it.
Can you face a godly instructors correction and tests?
God has been speaking a lot to me about extreems, excess and many YES men. Even among our peers there is found NO accountability or responsibility.
They want to experience the wild without the wilderness they want experiences for making themselves look good, but it is all self preservation. They measure themselves among themselves.
If we were on the ship, the ship would show us we are out of balance, and the ship could sink if we do not refocus on the LORD to bring balance and order. We need to use our spiritual compass. Even an airplane’s altimeter reads height above Mean Sea Level (MSL),
I heard sirens going off everywhere. I felt a major shaking as I heard these things. I literally heard these sounds with my ears and felt it too.
I live in the mountains. It was so surreal to hear it going all around me. However there were no sirens nothing but peace, yet I was hearing it from the north, south, east and west.
There will be sirens as he warns us ahead of time to prepare his beloved bride and he is at the very door. God’s spirit will not always strive with man.
All of this word the LORD comforted and convicted me. As I read this, I needed to KNOW I was truly hearing the LORD. Now as I am seeing this fresh again, clearly, I could see what is happening in the U.S.A.
I see a huge web and two people entangled in the traps. The spider wants to ensnare you and then suck the life out of you.
Do not listen to too many people. A double minded man is unstable in all his ways. None of us are perfect and we shouldn’t expect it completely out of others either.
If you were honest with yourself, you know your life and if you are hot, cold or lukewarm.
Is He your first love?
We cannot trust even our very selves at times. God knows the thoughts of our heart, even motives we don’t even know.
We can trust no one, but God. If we abide in the LORD he will give us instructions; And through others too. We cannot trust media. Our focus is to be fixed on HIM. Chaos is rampant but we must watch out for each other even more.
It’s not about cheerleaders! We are not to judge by accolades of men or who is famous or anointed. He has called YOU to know him too. We have a type of homing device build into our Spiritual DNA; as we yield to the still, small, voice He will direct your path. If it is too dark, He gives lamps.
“Thy word is a lamp unto my feet, and a light unto my path,” Psalms 119:105 KJV.
Jesus was not moved by opinions of man, he was only moved by what his father said. Jesus would not go around crowds or numbers, circumstance or hang out with clique and club, he was aligned to the Father’s will.
We are born naked and we die naked. We can’t take anything with us except what is written on heavens scrolls. The LORD was abandoned by Father God and when God turned away from Jesus, our sins became atoned for. Once and for all.
“And not only so, but we also joy in God through our LORD Jesus Christ, by who we have now received the atonement,” Romans 5:11 KJV.
Leaders, if you know those under you and they don’t want to grow up it is time to push people away, don’t let them depend on you.
Always point their answers to the LORD. Pushing people away will make them want to remain for their desire to Jesus.
Elijah pushed Elisha away, giving him choice. A person that is ready for mentoring and instructions will see the vision and if necessary give all away to follow.
The revelation is so strong that even when it appears to be in a seemingly offensive tone, they won’t move. Elijah gave Elisha plenty of room to say no even though God had told him about Elisha, Elisha still had to choose and follow. It will cost you to follow Jesus but it is so worth it.
“So he departed thence, and found elisha the son of Shaphat, who was plowing with twelve yoke of oxen before him, and he with the twelfth; and Elijah passed by him, and cast his mantle upon him and he left the oxen, and ran after Elijah, and said, Let me, I pray thee, kiss my father and my mother, and then I will follow thee. And he said unto him, God back again; for what have I done to thee? And he returned back from him, and took yoke of oxen, and slew them and boiled their flesh with the instruments of the oxen, and gave unto the people, and they did eat, then he arose, and went after Elijah, and ministered unto him,” 1 Kings 19:19-21 KJV.
The LORD has given us the gift of choice; He will allow us to do whatever we choose. Remember choice makes you accountable to God for all your choices.
Our mentors and coaches, train us in Life lessons. These are such good teachers to show us how we fail desperately, because we finally see how far away we really are from maturity and HIS perfection! That revelation will revolutionize your life!
Perfection was never attainable in this life in body. That is why Jesus gave up his place and took ours. He knew there had to be an exchange because humans can never be good enough.
I had a vision of a huge red and white tricycle, and there was a man in the seat in a three piece suit. The problem was the man couldn’t do anything with the tricycle, because he was very small like as tall as a Ken Barbie doll.
That is my point. God will teach you and he doesn’t expect you to do something if you don’t fit it yet.
He knows how far we need to go. As long as we continue to be malleable, teachable and humble God can do great things in us.
In HIS Grace and Mercy,
