“I will give them a heart to know that I am the Lord, and they shall be my people and I will be their God, for they shall return to me with their whole heart.”
Be in the Lords timing.
Is like the automatic focus button on a camera. When it is necessary to get what is in the frame into exact focus trying to do it manually is laborious and potentially less accurate than allowing the devise to do it.
For God to take control is like the automatic function.
Easy, natural and proficient.
The wisdom we need is to know and be in step with God’s timing and His anointing and blessing in that time is our obedient yes to all He asks as automatic.
Remembering too that the enemy will not be ignorant of Gods devises and will be attempting to counter them.
The enemy is not our focus but to be aware that he will put in obstacles enables us to use those as stepping stones and not allow stumbling blocks towards the vision, movement dream hope and joy for the future.
God enables and gives provision for our way forward to change the atmosphere to rid the enemies headway.
He reveals the posture and prayer needed to uncover, expose and stamp out all that is of evil origin in us, our systems and nations. He reactivates our DNA to the setting of His way.
The alert is to be wary of what we drop into for convenience. Taking up our cross and following Jesus may not appear convenient.
“As the Father sent Me now I send you”
The mountain top experiences we want to camp out in are transforming not only for us but for us to take away down the mountain to speak out to others in exactly the right moment and timing that Jesus instructs to transform them too.
The time when He is giving a new heart to receive.
He has a purpose for everything.
We measure time in hours, minutes years. His measure is in all moments time span from before time and into eternity it all swirls in one to be pulled out and spot lit in its moment of importance and significance.
We have accidentally often got into a habit of delighting in the “going back to “ in our reality when He is always urging us to “Look forward to” for it is the new which will be good.
The OT talks of new vessels shaped to carry and hold the weight of the new. The NT of the new wine skins.
Neither old nor convenient are fit for purpose.
Our prayer is to be in God’s timing and shaped ready for His purpose and mission because we can be so self focused for a lot of the time.
Yes, who we are and our identity is one of absolute importance to God but our purpose equally so, our other great value.
Being set in the Lord’s timing is key.
The illustration shows the reactivating of the DNA to the divine setting of Gods intentions. From a prostrate posture of total submission to the Lord’s will. The darkness being replaced to light. A transformative restoration.
Two Scriptures that come to mind:
“I will give them a heart to know that I am the Lord, and they shall be my people and I will be their God, for they shall return to me with their whole heart.”Jeremiah 24:7 ESV
“Jesus said to them again, “Peace be with you. As the Father has sent me, even so I am sending you.””John 20:21 ESV
