Three excerpts from “At His Feet” by Robin Kirby Gatto.
“When we are not walking in God’s perfect love that makes us complete, we only see dimly in a blurred reflection because we are looking through our reality and not God’s reality.
We only see through A REALITY AS IN A RIDDLE! It takes the sifting to expose the riddle of our reality so that we see God fully!
Job went through a sifting like none other, and it was in Job 42, where the prophet says, before he only knew God in his hearing, but after the sifting Job said that he could now “see” God, and knew Him in that manner! (Job 42:5).
Job had a face-to-face revealing of Who God is, by going through the sifting. It was at this time that God gave Job a double portion blessing, giving him double his former prosperity”…..
….. “When we have our masks removed that are causing us to operate in self-defense mechanisms, then we have an open face, where we are able to behold the glory of God in His Word.
This beholding of God’s Word causes us to know His love. We subconsciously have always longed for love ever since the day we were born. We were created to be loved and to love because that is Who God is; He is Love.
The attack of the enemy seeks to put a mask on our soul in order to hinder us from knowing the riddle of God’s love.”
“Similarly, we have this issue when we live on the commentary of yesterday, on what others think about us.
All the negative commentaries about our yesterday are nothing more than lies of the accuser and slanderer, keeping our self-defense mechanisms reinforced, in order to keep us in bondage.
When we stay in bondage we give excuses of why we cannot walk in the will of God, allowing ourselves to live below the standard that God has called us.
God’s love invades the commentaries of our yesterday, which flood our thoughts, to cause us to be in an uncommon tarry with His Word.
We have to stop living on everyone’s commentary from yesterday and live in an uncommon tarry with the Word today!
We see Jesus reveal this to Peter in John 21 when he is restored to ministry.”
Excerpt from Chapter 6:
“People that are still lacking in spiritual maturity have fear and dread, fearing punishment against their soul.
The enemy terrorizes them, keeping them bound up in learned behaviors that allow the masks to stay over their soul, so that they do not deal with the fear and anxiety that lie deep underneath.
God’s love goes to these deep places of our soul, in order for us to comprehend the mighty power of His love towards us. We can only love others as we love ourselves.
As long as we do not have to face the deep places of the soul, we feel comfortable and are able to maintain status quo, like Peter did before his sifting.
Before his sifting, he thought that he was fine. However, he still lacked, in being spiritually mature in the love of God, because somewhere deep in his soul, there was still the fear of punishment and dread, causing him to deny Christ three times.
Moreover, there were issues with pride and self-righteousness that needed to be removed that he knew not of, from being a disciple of Christ, where he let pride get to his heart.
I’ve seen people in ministry and at different churches, pride themselves in being with “that ministry,” or “that church.” It is no different from Lucifer being near God when pride began to enter his heart. That is why it is necessary to go through siftings so that the pride is exposed and removed.
The litmus test of our love walk and spiritual maturity is based on the love of God that is resident within our soul, causing us to see every trace of fear dispelled.
This of course takes time, as we go from glory to glory in God’s Word. I have had fear literally driven out of my body, as I was delivered, which I share in God’s Fire Wall Healing of the Soul Session 1 The Light.
This is a process, and as Peter had to go through his process, we do too. It is when we are unafraid, that we have reached full spiritual maturity, because we know the Love of God.
This is what we aspire to; it is the prize of the high call. In order to walk in greater spiritual maturity, we have to eat the meat of the Word.”
