A clear sign that you are moving out of My Father’s will, is that you are skipping over the details, when you say you are obeying My voice.
My Father is a God of details, from the tiniest insect to the movement of the stars, to the timing of every detail of the galaxies, they are filled with details after details, and if one detail is left out an entire universe would collapse.
The enemy is constantly trying to get you to move from highlight to highlight, from mountaintop to mountaintop, and leave out the details that are in the valleys. It is the details found in the valleys that build the character of your creator in your life.
Without these character traits being built by all the valley details, there would be no God in you. The details are what makes you complete. Think about the creation of your body if Father left out one detail, suppose He left out the iris of your eyes, just a tiny detail you would blind, suppose He left out the eardrum, just a tiny detail that would leave you deaf, or suppose he left out a tiny detail like the white blood cells or the red blood cells, you would not exist.
Now let’s bring details to where you are today; anything that Father does runs smoothly by the oil of the Holy Spirit. My Kingdom runs like clockwork, all details are filled in so that there is no tearing or ripping, no severe pain or sorrow that cannot be utilized by the kingdom to build your character.
Many of you have said that I am changing your calling, I AM moving you to new locations, I AM doing a new thing in your life, however if it is Me, every detail will line up and run smoothly so that no one is stumbled or hurt, and no one can accuse the Kingdom of leaving them destitute or in a dire strait.
Yes it is true that I AM making a major shift in millions of lives, however timing is of an essence, making it a must that you flow with My timing and with kingdom timing, so there is no rift.
When it is in Kingdom timing everything will come out as a positive testimony, that this was truly God. When the timing is right and My Spirits oil has been applied, there will be no unpaid bills left behind as a bad testimony, I pay all My bills.
CAUTION should be taken at this juncture; when you leave an area, or a ministry or a position and you say you are following Me, 90% of the time you will be leaving a good situation that you really do not want to leave!
Be very, very careful that you are not leaving a bad situation. If this be the case, it is extremely difficult to determine whether your flesh is making the calls or My Spirit is guiding you. The 10% exception will be; you being too slow in moving out of a good situation (comfort zone) making it necessary for My Father to disturb your nest, in order to move you out of that comfort zone.
Now depending on your ability to know My Father’s ways, a fleece may be necessary to convince you that it is My Spirit and not your flesh causing the discomfort.
The Trouble in Paradise Paradox: Family
By far the majority of you will be tested to the maximum, by parents and family members applying ungodly pressure from every conceivable direction. Everything from threats of being cut off from an inheritance, to being alienated from the family, as in no longer being called my son or my daughter.
Unbelievable pressures that tear at the emotions, causing nights when the pillow is soaked with tears. However this commitment test must be passed, “therefore I came to set a man at variance against his father, and the daughter against her mother, and the daughter in law against her mother in law. 36 You might as well know it now, a man’s foes will be they of his own household. 37 Here is the bottom line: If you love father or mother more than Me, you are not worthy of Me: and if you love your son or daughter more than Me you are not worthy of Me,” Matthew 10:35-37.
All of this should not seem strange to you, because all those that do not understand kingdom, cannot flow with the kingdom, therefore their ambitions for you will be tied up in democratic fleshly emotions, thinking they have a vote in the kingdom you now belong too.
This big gap between a democracy style life, and Kingdom living, will always be a tearing that brings great difficulty in families. It is at this point that your faith, your walk and your love for Me, will all be tested to the ultimate.
Can you walk away from all your lifelong fleshly connections, and the emotional pressures, in obedience to My commands?
Your entire future and maybe even your salvation will depend on your ability to obey Me in these situations. There is one thing for sure, if you walk away from My calling to walk in kingdom life, and choose to obey your flesh and the flesh of those around you, you will NOT be able to endure till the end, therefore your salvation will hang in the balances, Matthew 10:22.
