Today’s message goes hand in hand with Sunday’s message about no burden being irksome. I hope you’ll read both messages at Two Listeners for yourselves. Together, the two are a powerful revelation about love and obedience. Today’s message from God Calling – A.J. Russell, is about the true love feast; the love feast for the soul.
First, I want to touch on yesterday’s message about acceptance of our Heavenly Father’s will. It is, we’re told, the key to receiving divine revelation. That’s true because God will only reveal Himself to those who willing to receive Him. Now, Jesus told us that His yoke is easy, and His burden light. That’s because that yoke is adjusted to each individual’s shoulders. From that moment, the moment of acceptance of God’s will and of His Divine Intent, no burden is heavy or irksome. We can also look at that scriptural statement another way. The yoke is to be made easy, and the burden, made light. So it is our responsibility to make things easier and more clear; and not heavy to bear. That’s what God’s Divine Intent is for all. That’s what Jesus came to bring to us: “I came that they might have life and have it more abundantly.”
When we keep these things in mind, we can more readily and easily see the obstacles, and the ways to remove them. In today’s message, about the soul’s love feast, we’re bid to keep that listening ear. Listen for the Lord’s voice in all things. He warns us, He encourages us, He admonishes us, and He makes us laugh, filling us with joy and gratitude for His love. Quoting directly from the message: “But oh! at each of these feasts, God-provided and God-championed as they were, you could not have known the rapture you may know as you hear the knocking and the Voice, and, opening, bid Me welcome to My Feast.” That feast, we’re told, brings us the Lord’s tender companionship-“Lo, I am with you always, even unto the end of the age.”…and His divine sustenance. “If any man hear my voice, and open the door, I will come in to him, and will sup with him, and he with me.” (Rev. 3:20) This feast fills our soul with revelation of God’s Divine Intent in the thing you’re faced with, the task you’re given, the project you’re undertaking…in all things-great or small. Even the littlest things are important to Him, because you are important to Him. That Divine Sustenance is the strengthening of our faith, the new and fresh idea, the revelation knowledge needed to bring you the victory, the joy and peace that come with achievement and progress, etc. It all starts with a simple willingness to accept God’s will for your life…which is the absolute best life you can have…the greatest joy and peace in each little moment.
Love you from Cafe du Mondieu
