About Your Obedience
I asked the LORD; “LORD is there anything You want to say?”
“Yes there is,” He said. “I have been speaking to you and others about the obedience that I desire from those that have called on My Name.
I have said “Call upon Me and I will answer you and show you great and mighty things that you know not.”
I have said, “Come unto Me you who are heavy laden and I will give you rest,”
I have said, “I will be found by you when you seek Me and search for Me with all of your heart.”
I have said to those who have turned away, “Return to Me and I will return to you.”
And I continually give every opportunity to hear and to respond every time I call to your spirit.
I have called for you to consecrate yourselves, and be separate from the things that draw your attention away from My voice.
I desire for My voice to be clear in your heart and your mind.
Therefore I say to you, “I will raise up for Myself faithful priests who will do according to My heart and according to My mind.
And I will build for them a sure house, and they shall walk before My anointed, My called out ones.
And the Word that I give to them will not fall to the ground. But what I say through you and through them, will manifest the intent of My heart and not fall to the ground
Therefore, keep your head high, and walk in the office to which I have called you.
There will be those who will mistaken your confidence, but I have called you to be confident in this very thing, that He Who has started this good work in you will complete it until the day of Jesus Christ.”
He is faithful Who promised, and He will do it.
The Transforming Effect
Scripture states “Call upon Me and I will answer you and show you great and mighty things that you know not,” Jeremiah 33:3.
The power of God will cause you to change you plans.
Once you have seen the awesome works of the LORD, and their transforming effect on your sense of believing, you will be looking and waiting with greater anticipation and awareness for His Voice.
Don’t let His flowing anointing pass you by.
Jump into the River of Life that truly is, and can also be named “The Word That is Sent”.
Out of your innermost being shall flow Rivers of Living Water, that is, The Word That Is Sent through you.
Open your mouth wide for the LORD is about to pour forth an anointing that will transform the hearers into an army of believers that will be calling out to the One Who is called Faithful and True.
He will hasten His Word to perform it.
Giving You Greater Resolve
God has a way for you to cross over to the other side.
Elisha found that out when Elijah got carried away. Yes, I saw this too when when I posted it. A merry heart really does do us good like a medicine.
But Elijah had the mantle of the LORD that he carried for as long as the LORD’s anointing was upon him.
As the mantle fell from him down to Elisha, the power of God never left.
You are carrying a mantle, an anointing that is about to reach a level of power and competence in the work of the ministry that will amaze those who have been watching and waiting for the manifestation of the sons of God.
There is a transformation that is taking place that you have not been aware of, but others around you are noticing it.
It has been increasing in your walk with the LORD, and the manner of talk that has been coming from your own mouth has had an affect on those who hear you, for they really can see the transformation of your conversation.
The renewing of your mind has been demonstrating what God has been intending for you, as you have been growing in His Presence.
Faith has been coming to you because you have been hearing the Word Of The LORD. Rhema has been changing your thought life.
Awareness of adversary’s attempts to distract your thoughts has been giving you a greater resolve to not only overcome the lies he spews from his mouth, but you have been progressing toward greater awareness of the effects of the indwelling of Holy Spirit.
“The fervent prayer of the righteous man is powerful and effective,” James 5:16.
“Great grace was upon the apostles,” and that same great grace will become even more evident as you listen for the LORD’s Voice and walk in the obedience that is continually growing in you.
Now, “Cast not away your confidence in the LORD, which has great recompense of reward, for you have need of patience so that after you have done the will of God, you will receive the Promise,” Hebrews 10: 35-37.
“For without faith it is impossible to please God, for he that comes to God mus believe that He is God; and tat He is the rewarder unto those who diligently seek Him,” Hebrew 11:6.
His Preeminence Through All Time
“In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God; and the Word was God……
….. And the Word became flesh, and dwelt among us. And we beheld His Glory; the glory as of the only begotten Son of the Father, full of grace and truth,” John 1:1,14.
These words have been applicable through all time; through all decades; through all the centuries; through all generations.
It does not matter how old you are, or how young you are. You can call yourself Generation X, a Generation Y, or a Millennial; yet faith STILL comes by hearing, and hearing by the Word of God.
The hearing by the Word of God still means that the Word of God became Rhema, the living Word that transforms you from death to life; from darkness unto light; from being unrighteous as an unbeliever, to being given the right as sons of God to enter the Holy of Holies, to find grace to help us in time of need.
For there is now, therefore, no condemnation to those who are in Christ Jesus, who walk not after the flesh but after the Spirit. For the law of the Spirit of Life in Christ Jesus, has made you free from the law of sin and death, (Romans 8:1-2).
No matter when you were born, Psalm 119 still says: “Your Word have I hid in my heart so that I will not sin against You.”
Revelation 3 still says, “Behold, I stand at the door and knock. Whosoever opens the door unto Me I will come in and sup with him, and he with Me.”
The Holy Spirit still incubates the Word of the LORD to make it alive for you, Rhema, so that you are transformed by the renewing of your mind so that you can prove what is the good and acceptable, and perfect will of God, (Romans 12:1-2),
The Preeminence of the Son of God, the Word That Was Sent, still stands for all time.
“If My Words abide in you, then you are My disciples indeed, then you shall know the truth, and the truth will set you free,” John 8: 31-32.
