Wayne and I walked out a parable today and it was a warning from the Lord. While I was sitting in the parking lot at the post office, I noticed a car pulled up 2 spaces away from ours and it was identical car, year, make and color. When Wayne came out of the post office to return to the car, he went to the wrong one and I was pounding on the car window and calling his name, to stop him. But he put his hand on the door handle and the old man in the car was very alarmed and turned sharply to him. This astounded Wayne and Wayne quickly apologized that he had the wrong car. Both of them saw me laughing and so they grinned and it was OK.

Later we went to Costco and when I was getting out of the car, the red rig that was parked directly in front of us started blaring its alarm. It was so startling, that it made me jump and I wondered if God was trying to say something. The poor lady in the car was doing everything to get it to stop.

I noticed it was constricted in some of the aisles in the store and Wayne was walking in front of our cart and pulling it through traffic. So I basically stopped watching where we were going, and just let him steer and I was still holding onto the cart’s handle and basically walking along for the ride. By the time we were through, he was steering the cart in the parking lot and I wasnt watching at all, just merely holding on and looking around. We stopped right in front of the car and just as Wayne was getting ready to put his keys into the trunk, he stopped and realized it was the wrong car. It was the same identical car from the post office!

We both felt that this was a Word from the Lord to pay attention. After we discussed this Word, we felt that it was saying that there is a relationship, spiritual walk and/or ministry that is identical to what the Lord has provided. The only difference between the two is the license plate.

The license plate is the validation, the authorization to move in that walk, calling or ministry. We need to be watchful that we not take a counterfeit copy. Our standard must always be scripture.

Matt 7:22-23 NLT
On judgment day many will tell me, 'Lord, Lord, we prophesied in your name and cast out demons in your name and performed many miracles in your name.' But I will reply, 'I never knew you. Go away; the things you did were unauthorized.'



Plowing through life with personal ambition
Refusing to be teachable
Entering territory that is off limits
Sinning without expecting consequence
Ultimately expecting God to back you
Maneuvering out of God’s discipline
Protecting personal agenda
Thinking independently with predetermined mind-sets
I am reigning instead of God
Opinions that are not true
Not allowing God access

I have prayed many prayers in my life, but one of the ones that I repeat most often is that the Lord strongly keep me from presumption. Presumption is assuming something is God, when it is not. Presumption is assuming something is not God, when it is.

• Presumption is prophesying words in His Name that He did not speak.
• Presumption is making a change of direction when it is not God’s will.
• Presumption is assuming that something spiritual is God.
• Presumption is the zeal of flesh’s refusal to wait on God.
• Presumption is not waiting for God to send 2-3 confirmations.
• Presumption is self sufficiency and independence from God.
• Presumption is moving ahead of God and His timing.
• Presumption is choosing a war that is beyond scriptural boundaries.
• Presumption is choosing a ministry that is outside of God’s prescribed grace.


Presumption does not fear God.

Prov 14:26-27 NKJV
In the fear of the LORD there is strong confidence, and His children will have a place of refuge. The fear of the LORD is a fountain of life, to turn one away from the snares of death.

Ps 19:12-13 NKJV
Who can understand his errors? Cleanse me from secret faults. Keep back Your servant also from presumptuous sins; Let them not have dominion over me.

Job 36:9-10 AMP
Then He shows to them [the true character of] their deeds and their transgressions, that they have acted arrogantly [with presumption and self-sufficiency]. He also opens their ears to instruction and discipline, and commands that they return from iniquity.

Prov 1:28-31 NKJV
"Then they will call on me, but I will not answer; They will seek me diligently, but they will not find me. Because they hated knowledge and did not choose the fear of the LORD, They would have none of my counsel and despised my every rebuke. Therefore they shall eat the fruit of their own way, and be filled to the full with their own fancies.
