Are You Submitted to The Puppet Master or Manipulated by the Puppeteer?
The Lord showed me a picture of what appeared to be a puppet on strings but the unusual thing about this picture was that it was not a toy puppet but it was an actual man on strings. This man was being manipulated and pulled in a number of different directions. The Lord says, there are those of you who are being pulled in different directions by listening to seducing voices. I am calling My body in a particular direction but they are distracted and enticed by other voices. They are being lured in by the things of the world, the thoughts of their past, the concerns on their minds and the lies of the enemy.
Do not submit to this tug of war any longer. Do not allow anything to beguile you or distract you from the purpose and plan the I have for you. Do not struggle with opinions that are worthless and thoughts that are meaningless. You have no need to fear what the future will bring because as you place your life in My hands I will guide you and give you clarity and direction. Resist those things that war against your soul by bringing turmoil and confusion.
Let go of the things of the past and anything that is contrary to My Word which brings life. My plans are always good and will not bring you harm. Do not be deceived by others who are seeking self gain, neither be manipulated by those who try to control you and lead you astray. As you listen for My voice, you will no longer fear the lying voices and the voices of opposition. You will no longer be enticed by the master of deception. Follow after the peace that I have placed in your heart, and I will guide you to your destination says the Lord.
Colossians 3: 1-3 “If then you were raised with Christ, seek those things which are above, where Christ is, sitting at the right hand of God. Set your mind on things above, not on things on the earth. For you died, and your life is hidden with Christ in God.”
John 10:27-30 “My sheep hear My voice, and I know them, and they follow Me. And I give them eternal life, and they shall never perish; neither shall anyone snatch them out of My hand. My Father, who has given them to Me, is greater than all; and no one is able to snatch them out of My Father’s hand. I and My Father are one.”
Romans 6:16 “Do you not know that to whom you present yourselves slaves to obey, you are that one’s slaves whom you obey, whether of sin leading to death, or of obedience leading to righteousness?”
