DAILY PORTION--WISDOM CALLS--FAITH ANSWERS
How Sweet It Is To Trust In Jesus..... There are times, when divine clarity and wisdom are necessary to blow the smoke and mirrors of our will, thoughts, plans and ideas away.
Some times we allow ourselves to get too busy. Whether it be our thinking or our finding something to occupy our every moment of each day that has nothing to do with God's plans for us, sooner or later we will put ourselves in a place where nothing is working, we get impatient, irritable, and are close to having a fit.
Oh, yes I know that space well. And I have learned and I apply what I have learned because I don't like that space much and do all I can Not to keep going by there.
Right There The Lord Is standing and watching us.
He has allowed us to spin ourselves dizzy, just like a child who didn't listen when the parent said, "No, No, No, don't do that, you'll make yourself sick, or you may hurt yourself!"
We do that as adults concerning our daily journey and the lessons the Lord is teaching us. I have learned this is the Lord waiting for us to stop working out our little shallow plans instead of obeying Him and the directions He gave to us. He will let us run ourselves silly until it clicks with us, which is usually when we hit the last wall that we cannot get over, under, around nor through, and we stop, broke down calling on the Lord.
It clicks that some where, we misstepped, we inserted the wrong thoughts, timing, order, people and actions concerning His Plans, we stopped praising our way through, our focus is Not on the Lord.... we have done some thing(s) wrong.
You know, a lot of people hear what the Lord said to do, but they add in how they think the details should go, when certain things should happen, who should be involved, where to get the supplies for this to work, when they should do what they say needs to be done, etc...
They do everything they think should be done, but they never do exactly what God told them to do. Some times we make up our own details to His Plan for us because, we don't have the faith, trust and courage to do what He told us to do. Or, we are impatient and want things to move faster so we go the route we think will get us there quicker. We make up something we think is easier and will get us to the Same End that He has planned.
Let me tell you this, That Will Not Work! And It will usually get us into a much worse place that will take a long time to get us out of.
Making mistakes, God already knows we will do this, that is not necessarily a bad thing, as long as you catch yourself and go back to the Lord for correction and clarity, this time allowing yourself to Mature in your Gifts of self-control and obedience.
Too many want to jump and use the Spiritual Gifts of the Holy Spirit, but don't have Mature Spiritual Fruit of the Holy Spirit, so their Gifts are also immature and stunted in growth and power.
God is getting our attention to tell us that we have the wrong perspective about what He told us to do. When we slow down, and stop so we can focus, we will hopefully hear the Lord tell us, we have the wrong perspective.
We heard God clear as a bell when He gave us The Vision, but at some point many people get up and take off, before hearing the rest that goes with it, before they are fully prepared for this part, they are Gone!
God will say, "Ready, Set, ......"
He didn't tell us "Go", but many Go anyway.
They create their own perspective of what God wants them to do.
They stop seeking Him and His Will, they forget the details that they do know, they will not listen when Wisdom calls to them, they dismiss God's correction. When His Wisdom calls out, they don't answer in Faith, but in fear, ego, pride, disobedience, and doubt.
They have the wrong perspective.
Then when things get difficult, when doors do not open, when people do not help and when the supplies do not manifest as they thought, they slump and frown, and begin to feel the roughness of the stoney way.
They begin to doubt God instead of examining them selves for mistakes, they are in need of correction, clarity and focus, they need the proper perspective.
Let's go back to the beginning, where focus is balanced and stable, where Faith answers when Wisdom Calls to us! Back to where we are sitting with the Lord with obedient ears and a heart with desire to please Him, full of courage and love, completely dependent on His All. Back to the teachings and lessons provided by Him to grow and mature our Spiritual Gifts and Fruit of His Holy Spirit.
Father God, In the Name of Jesus, I thank You for Helping Your children,
Thank You for keeping us from falling by the side of the road,
And for teaching us To Love one another,
Thank You for opening our hearts so Heaven might find a place in us,
We Know that Jesus Is Love
And He Won't Let us down
And Father, I Know Jesus is Mine Forever in my heart
Thank You for guiding us Through temptation,
Your Love and Your Wisdom Are our Helping hands,
I know the Truth and Your Words Are our salvation,
They lift up our hearts And we Are thankful and glad
That You, Jesus Are Love And You won't let us down,
I know You are Mine deep down in my soul,
In my heart You Are Forever
I Know your Love Is Power, Your Love Is Glory Forever and Ever,
I'm Gonna Follow You Jesus, where ever You Lead me, and I don't mind because I know that You Love me,
Nobody Loves me Like You do Jesus,
You Are Love, And I Know if You Ask, I'll show Love Is the Word forever and ever and ever,
Who Can bring you Love? Jesus!
Who Can Bring you Joy? Jesus!
Who Can Turn your life around? Jesus!
Yes He Can and Yes He Will!

There's No Greater Love Than His, He laid down His Life for us His friends,
for a friend like me and you,
Jesus laid down His life for our wretched souls.....
Remember, daily to stay in constant contact with the Lord, don't assume anything. We don't have to do that, all we have to do is Ask in the name of Jesus, and keep our hearts open, willing and teachable, with obedient ears, and we Will hear His leading, His directions, clarity, wisdom and encouragement.
In the name of Jesus, so be it!
I Cor 12
