I hear God saying when you get tired of wearing yourself out, He is waiting for the nation to acknowledge Him!
As I was meditating upon The LORD, He spoke to me the portion of scripture below:
“Who hath directed the Spirit of The LORD, or being his counselor hath taught him?
With whom took he counsel, and who instructed him, and taught him in the path of judgment, and taught him knowledge, and shewed to him the way of understanding?” (Isaiah 40:13-14 KJV)
Direct, according to Webster’s dictionary means, ‘to control the operation of; manage or govern’.
Many times we as the people of God think because we have many limited resources available to us; as a result we know what God wants and so what we do we try to direct God’s work based upon our own little limited minds as the kings did when they had dreams, visions and revelations by calling on the magicians astrologers, and the sorcerers, and the Chaldeans, and others to make known the interpretation of dreams or the dreams itself. And, when they couldn’t off came their heads said the king! (Daniel 2:1-5).
But, I believe that God is confounding the wise and the prudent in this season and what we as a people have become accustomed to shall be no more.
Just as it was for Nebuchadnezzar who was use to things being the way he was accustomed to!
He sat on his throne and had almost every resource available to him for every situation but God confounded him with a dream for which he had no answer and instead of him seeking the “true” source for directions he followed what he was accustomed to which was his own resources and when that didn’t seem to work he used intimidation, manipulation, control and even murder to get his answers, but God in this season is going to shew Himself in some strange and unusual ways because He wants the people to become stretched beyond the usual so they will not become familiar with His instructions in this season and not only that but because it is unusual your faith is going to also be stretched also.
As we stated earlier the word, “direct” according to Webster’s dictionary means to control the operation of; manage or govern.
But, also The LORD spoke to us through Isaiah and warned the people saying who hath directed The Spirit of The LORD, or being his counselor hath taught him? who?
The scripture warns us in all thy ways to acknowledge The LORD and He shall direct thy path. No my friend we are not smart enough or wise enough to direct, counsel or to teach Holy Spirit.
He is our counselor when we need directions. Though you have many sons and daughters I will be a Father unto you, and ye shall be my sons and daughters, saith The LORD Almighty. (2 Corinthians 6:18).
My God I hear The LORD speaking and He is saying our thoughts must be opened to the heart of God in this season to hear His voice and His instructions and just because He spoke like this in time past does not mean he will always speak that way!
King Nebuchadnezzar was use to calling on those in his kingdom for help but this time God used a resource he was not familiar with which was Daniel!
The Chaldeans wanted the king to tell the dream and they would interpret it but God fixed it so he couldn’t remember the dream, and to make it more impossible they had to come up with both the dream and the interpretation.
Isn’t God magnificent when He wants the glory He makes sure the people who get to witness that glory of God see that absolutely nobody and I mean nobody can give you directions and instructions (but God) unless God be on their side?
The Chaldeans had sense enough to even tell the king no regular god can do this which you are asking but only one God angering the king even more! Daniel answered and said, “Blessed be the name of God for ever and ever: for wisdom and might are his: and he changeth the times and the seasons: he removeth kings, and setteth up kings: he giveth wisdom unto the wise, and knowledge to them that know understanding: He revealeth the deep and secret things: he knoweth what is in the darkness, and the light dwelleth with him,” (Daniel 2:20-22 KJV)
It’s time for man to realize that no regular god can make known the secret things of God and neither can any man direct and counsel the Almighty God!
God in this season will be glorified in the heart of the earth and it’s time we begin to seek God for directions; instead of trying to do things in the way we have become accustomed to walking in the familiar paths that our flesh is use to obeying!
