This was a pretty awesome revelation, so I’m posting a bonus today.
Today’s message from God Calling – A.J. Russell, reminds us that we can’t get away from God’s love and caring. Actually, quoting directly, “you can never go beyond my love and care,” God says. We are also reminded that He blesses only the things that are right for us-individually. We’re bid to lay our will down before Him as an offering. That’s the first step, isn’t it? Yeah, I’ve been reminded of that so many times…after trying to do it according to my will, and finding out it didn’t work out so well.
I discovered that diligence in obedience and perseverance are great helps. Nowadays, I’m diligent regarding my prayer life. I’m diligent to seek, to ask, and to knock, as Jesus told us to. When we do this in every circumstance, life changes for the better. The things you need to seek, to ask, and to enter into change, depending on the circumstances, but the principal of receiving and progress remain. Sometimes we get ahead of ourselves too, don’t we? Like, when we’re seeking relief from something, but haven’t sought the cause of the problem yet. I have memories of some of those instances that still make me laugh at myself. Thank God that He knows what I’m doing, because, Oh, my God! -Sometimes I don’t know how but by the grace of God that I’m still here.
Laying your will before the Lord isn’t some horrible painful thing when we get the hang of the diligence, perseverance, and obedience thing. That’s when it is received by Him, and perceived in your spirit as an offering. You’ll realize that it is actually linking up and coming into one accord with the Lord; becoming one with the Holy Spirit.
Love you from Cafe du Mondieu
