While on my prayer walk today I saw a doggie being
trained by his master in the school field. He was being
told to walk, sit, stay, lay. Then he threw a ball way
out in the field. The dog saw him do this and remained
in a ready position. When the master told him to go, the
dog ran as fast as he could to go retrieve it.
This is what He is doing with me right now. He gives me
the Word, and then I wait for the right timing and how
to deliver the Word.
It is very hard to be in a place where you are submitted
to the Holy Spirit, tender and meek and willing, but at
the same time not yielded to men wanting to push you
into their agenda for timing.
Numbers 16:28 NKJV
And Moses said:"By this you shall know that the LORD has
sent me to do all these works, for I have not done them
of my own will.
John 5:19-20 NKJV
Then Jesus answered and said to them, "Most assuredly, I
say to you, the Son can do nothing of Himself, but what
He sees the Father do; for whatever He does, the Son
also does in like manner.
WORD TO PONDER: OBEDIENCE FOR YOUR SAFETY
You have come a long way
in your journey of maturing in Me. How proud of you I
AM, beloved. Your heart has become tender and willing.
It is vital that you follow your conscience and stay in
obedience. Do not harden your heart towards My voice.
This will safe guard you from falling out of the nest.
It is much easier to be
self disciplined than to be God disciplined and also the
enemy is wanting any access you will unwittingly give
him. I will discipline and do what is necessary to get
your attention for your protection. Stay light on your
feet by being flexible and willing to follow My voice.
When in doubt, always obey.
Heb 12:7-9 TLB
As you endure this
divine discipline, remember that God is treating you as
his own children. Whoever heard of a child who was never
disciplined? If God doesn't discipline you as he does
all of his children, it means that you are illegitimate
and are not really his children after all. Since we
respect our earthly fathers who disciplined us, should
we not all the more cheerfully submit to the discipline
of our heavenly Father and live forever?
