DAY 4: God Wants Us To Know His Will
How do we properly discern and interpret the direction that we are to go in, the people whom we are to be surrounded by, and the adventures that we are to embark on? We must begin to answer this question with one basic premise: God wants us to know His will more than we want to know it! He is not withholding information or guidance from us. In fact, He has provided multiple platforms upon which to communicate His desires for our lives.
Religious spirits have enforced a false image of God as a distant being, someone who is far off, shrouded in mystery, and far too advanced for simple human beings to understand. Embracing this false thinking about the Lord makes it difficult for us to believe God for direction and receive His leading. The heart of God throughout the ages has always been to draw us, His beloved, close to Him! In fact, all throughout Scripture He communicates His willingness to be near to us in all seasons.
It is time to change our thinking, renew our minds, and break the lie that God is distant. He is right here! Our loving Father has an abundance of wisdom and guidance for us.
DAY 3: The Importance of God’s Words
Each and every insight that God provides for you is important. The result of the revelation will often be determined by your reply and response. If you just think on it for a day or two and then let it go, you will probably miss the full effect of the oil on that word. If you write, record, and then go back to it with prayer and seeking strategy, you will keep pressing that word and extract the oil.
Sometimes you are struggling and need a breakthrough. God will send a word to you that contains bondage-breaking power. It may not be a word that has long-term application but is sent for that very moment. Some words frame times and seasons. There have been times in my life that I keep pondering a word over and over, and each time I got more application. It becomes a mission statement for a season of my supernatural journey.
There are other words that are very specific and hold instruction for a particular assignment. All of these things must be prayed out and discerned. This is why recording, writing, and praying over supernatural revelations is so critical. To become a person who walks in the supernatural, you must learn to place emphasis and value on insight and revelation.
“And they (the Apostles and Jesus) come (came) to Jerusalem: and as he was walking in the Temple, there come to him the chief priests, and the scribes, and the elders, and say unto him, By what authority do thou these things? And who gave thee this authority to do these things? (Why not question themselves and their own intentions? Where do they believe THEIR AUTHORITY came from?) And Jesus answered and said unto them, I will ask of YOU one question, and answer me, and I will tell you (directly) by what authority I do these things. ” “…. And Jesus answering said unto them, Neither “DO” (not neither WILL) I tell you by what authority I do these things.” John 11:27-29 and 33. (King James Version with my own emphasis added). When it is obvious that we all do that that which is in line with our OWN intentions often; When CAN we ever “trust” ourselves entirely? Indeed! Others? Nah, not entirely. The Light of Truth will always affect us this way. Want to just quit? How hard it is to give up the “soul-searching” inquiry into our TRUE “SPIRITUAL” CONDITION. So…. how does one possibly decide? IF WE ARE CHRISTIANS, we will realize that “Legalism” and “Rigid Perfectionism” is IMPOSSIBLE for us to humanly live up to. BUT WE HAVE THE SPIRIT OF CHRIST TO HELP US. This much, is what will spur us on to want to totally please God in all we do. The world is not doing this! They are trying to fool everyone. Even themselves! BE TRUE.
