Divine Restraint is Channeled Power

eden08122015

Today’s message from God Calling -A.J. Russell, reminds us of the importance of divine restraint.  The message speaks to us of God’s restraint.  His hand is not shortened that He cannot save.  But we need to understand fully, His salvation; and salvation in general.

Divine restraint is channeled power.  When we practice it, our power increases.  Always, when we do act, though, we need to know what we’re trying to save.  What are we trying to accomplish, and is it in line with God’s idea of salvation?  It’s not His will that any should perish.  Yet, He gave David the power to slay Goliath with one small stone.

I’ve had the experience of being saved the great heartache of being disappointed in myself for losing ground and self respect, because of divine restraint.  Seriously, I literally had to pray for strength to restrain myself.  God was right on the scene.  He never fails us; never.

As we practice divine restraint, we learn to back up, to make sure we’re using the right weapon(s) {the battle to be won is in the spirit}, to make sure our aim (purpose/intent) is right on, and to make sure that our hearts are steady.  How many times can you find, “fear not,” in the Bible?  And Jesus did tell us to, “take heart.”  That means steady yourself in the spirit, keep your focus on God’s love and will for you-and for all, and then fire.  When we come against the enemy in that mode, we can say, “I come against you in the Name of the LORD!”

Finally, I have found that divine restraint works in every area of life; from the big disasters, right down to the icing on the cupcakes for school.
