ABOUT MAKING MISTAKES  1/09/13

 

In December 2012, I heard the following and have been pondering its meaning.

 

12/05/12  WHATíS COMING HOME TO ROOST?

HEARD:  You are starting to think that to get your answers, you cant do anything wrong.

 

PIX:  I saw some cherries that had been washing in a pitcher of water.  The water and cherries were pouring out leaving behind the stems.   

 

HEARD:  Keep pressing through.  Itís a matter of time.  Hungry.  You are hearing Me very clearly.  When You prepare a table for Me.  Releasing your desire.   

 

PIX:  I saw a bunch of pigeons (turtle doves) who had come home to roost on top of a green hedge and they were eating berries. 

 

I saw how our failure to measure up to the pure Word of God is the pits.  And how cherries can be harvested and washed but they still have pits inside.  God made cherries in a way that we put the whole thing in our mouth, suck and chew and spit out the pits.  He didnít make them large enough to cut them open ahead of time, de-pit them and then eat without a mess.  Itís true everybody has some kind of a pit in their life!

 

Matt 19:25

When His disciples heard it, they were greatly astonished, saying, " Who then can be saved?"  26 But Jesus looked at them and said to them, " With men this is impossible, but with God all things are possible."

 

On 12/25/12, He told me He was giving those who had fallen ďanother chance.Ē I have pondered the truth of faith, and how when we suffer condemnation it is a veil that keeps us from hearing Him and/or coming closer to Him.  For me, condemnation is a pit and when I mess up, it puts that veil there. 

 

Seeing a bunch of pigeons coming home to roost didnít sound too good to me!  It is true that we reap what we sow and God doesnít give us what we deserve.  But He does allow enough of our harvest to touch us so that we change!  He isnít doing this to condemn us and accuse us.  It is to help us come to His light and allow Him to purge us of our pits!

 

John 3 17

For God did not send His Son into the world to condemn the world, but that the world through Him might be saved. 18 " He who believes in Him is not condemned; but he who does not believe is condemned already, because he has not believed in the name of the only begotten Son of God. 19 And this is the condemnation, that the light has come into the world, and men loved darkness rather than light, because their deeds were evil. 20 For everyone practicing evil hates the light and does not come to the light, lest his deeds should be exposed. 21 But he who does the truth comes to the light, that his deeds may be clearly seen, that they have been done in God."

 

PRAYER:  Lord open our eyes to see the fruit of our decisions.  And please help us to change when they come to light.  In the process Lord, let us feel your cleansing flow and deep abiding love for us, so that we run to You and not be held back by our own condemnation.  In Jesus Name we pray!  Amen.

 

1 John 3:20,21

For if our heart condemns us, God is greater than our heart, and knows all things. Beloved, if our heart does not condemn us, we have confidence toward God.
