CURB YOUR PASSION TO FIT ITS RECEPTION
RHEMA 11/11/07 LEARNING TO TEMPER THE FLOW
HEARD: Recipe for change. Indifference. A life
HEARD: Inhibited. Out of the box. Free
speech. We value your opinion. They should be tender.
HEARD continued: You require some help.
Assistance. It’s a bit more than I asked for.
HEARD: By the way, you are on the right
track. This is our duty, to become manifest. To bear the
light. From negative to positive. Be a blessing. Stay
determined. I want you to know, you passed the test.
PARABLE: A couple years ago I had a
rude awakening when I went out to get our mail. The
entire street was flooded. Water was backed up for
several streets and people were not allowed to drive to
their homes, but had to park several blocks away as the
water was going up the driveways.
As it turned out, when my husband put in the culvert
through the subdivision, it was a large one to code and
it handled all the rain drainage from the neighborhood.
However since that time there were 3 houses down from us
that were not a part of the subdivision, and at
different times they had independently connected
themselves to the pipe. The first house put in a
slightly smaller pipe, and then the one next to it
connected with an even smaller one. The last house put
in a 6 inch pipe and all of the watershed from the
neighborhood was trying to get through!
Evidently when they put it in, besides not doing it
according to code, they also drove on the ground on top
of it and crushed the pipe beneath. When the maintenance
crew came, they found the problem and ripped the whole
thing out of their back yard and finally everyone's
WORD TO PONDER: CURB YOUR PASSION TO FIT ITS
After going through the school of hard knocks, you
have learned some valuable lessons. One valuable lesson
is learning that the zeal you feel over My Word may not
be shared or received by others and you dont have the
ability to ignite them without My Spirit. Since then I
have taught you how to test the waters of receptivity
and go forth with tact, discretion and wisdom. Your
passion may be a huge culvert and their receptivity may
only be a 6 inch pipe. Always remember that it takes 2
to connect: one willing to give and the other willing to
receive. Learn to hold back the flow and taper it not
necessarily to the need, but to the receptivity.
Your calling is to bear My light and turn the darkened
world of corruption into a blessing of My love and
light. Do not become discouraged or become negative due
to people’s responses. Stay determined little one, no
matter how much you are allowed to flow. I will weave
you in and out - and together, you and I will make a
difference. We will expand those little pipes and one
day they will grow and be equally yoked with yours.
Matt 13:57-58 NLT
Then Jesus told them, "A prophet is honored everywhere
except in his own hometown and among his own family."
And so he did only a few miracles there because of their
