DAY #1: TRUST AND OBEY.
“…Do whatever He tells you to”
Good Evening Friends. It’s EVERYDAY JESUS, yet again and ALWAYS. I’d be telling us a short story. Stay put, please!
I was on transit, sometimes ago; I passed something that made a remembrance run across my mind. It had the face of a dear friend form a persistent vision in the lenses of my mind. Then I heard it clearly, “Pray for Him”. It was clear, but sincerely, I had no drive, even to pray in the Holy Ghost, probably due to the pretty bad outing I just had.
Still in that dilema, I saw something like a trance; a horrid motion picture of something dreadful happening at this same friend’s workplace.
I got gripped by fear. I rushed for my mobile, dialed his phone number, and OOOOOPS!; not reachable! Then the tension came calling, plus fear and worry. My mind racing as in a flash, exploring all the possible propensities to the hurt that may befall him.
NOTE: If you’d notice, my options now, were void of GOD’S WILL or what he’d have had me do.
I was in that confused state till my phone rang; and my ringtone was a great spirit-filled reminder,- “Lecrae’s All I Need is You….”. I silenced the phone’s volume, upon the dawning that swept over me( don’t ask me if I picked the call).
All I really needed wasn’t all of the doses of those anti-Christ(s),- the fear, tension, worry, etc. If I had “done what He had told me to”, all other shows wouldn’t have been called for. What He asked me to do was so simple, less stressful. But I bounced off. And guess what, the adversary proffered a negative film. He almost gave me a Prayer point(sorry, worrying point). Praying from a fearful, disobedient heart wouldn’t have pleased God.
“… And by granting us the privilege of serving God fearlessly, freed from our enemies…” Luke 1:2.
That was the plan. That is still the plan.
A times, we get spiritual heads-up on issues of great exigencies and we blow it all up. What else would you have needed to be convinced of the leading or inspiration? Those heads-up coming up time after time, are our thoughts in Christ; coming from the inside of us, because Christ is indwelling us.
Maybe, we needed a mega voice; of a mighty Man of God from Wherever to come with a resonating, prophetic declaration of “What God would have us do”, even in the minute details of our lives.
That’s way far from how God relates with us. We’re Good ; God and I. I am a friend of Jesus(you could echo that). Don’t even bother asking, “who am I that He’s mindful of me?”. Anyways, I’d tell you.
“For it Pleased the God-head to bodily dwell in Jesus, the Christ”.
“And Christ in us, ushers us into a glorious hope and inheritance,- the God Head, also dwells bodily in us. Inferentially, all of me is All of God”.
Again, all our renewed thoughts are His Biddings. Don’t Hesitate. No room for Anti-Christ(s). Fear, contention and disobedience to the Spirit’s leadings are far from Jesus.
I’d Say Yes, Jesus… I’d Say Yes.
To your Will, Lord, I’d Say Yes.
Where you Lead me, I’d go.
I’d Say Yes, Jesus… I’d say Yes.
No Room for ANTI-CHRIST(s).
It’s EVERYDAY JESUS!
“To be continued Tomorrow”.
