I here you say, “Holy Spirit, have your way,” but I know it’s only a routine prayer, with no meaning. In heaven, we do not pay attention to vain prayers.
The truth is most of you who pray these prayers already have a planned program that will go on in spite of what I want. Most of the time I want just silence, so I can deal with hearts, but the programs are designed to keep the people happy. The last thing I want to do is make people with sin, feel happy. Conviction is painful and unpleasant, because it is designed to make you qualified, producing a Godly sorrow, not to make you feel happy, John 16:7-11.
The program says, start with 15 minutes of fast songs, and 20 minutes of slow songs, with five percent of the people preforming for the other 95 percent. Once in a while someone in the five percent will slip up and leave the program and obey what I want to do! But the programmers out number those who slip into the Spirit and are forced back into the program. Yes, of course, I AM able to save people, in spite of these roadblocks, but it’s only because My Father has drawn them and the lost are looking for a savior. These people could also be saved just as easily in a grocery store, with no performers. Heaven wants it’s children to grow up and that requires an operation of My Spirit on each individual heart, 1 Samuel 16:7.
You are praying in vain when you pray, “Lord, have your way”. That’s what you and everyone in the room hears. However here in heaven we hear the words and also the intentions of your heart. This is what we hear: “Lord have your way, but we have a program and if you can, your welcome to break in at any time. I worked on it all week so I am hoping you enjoy what my carnal mind has put together for your people, it’s what I think will bless them. Lord always keep the time in mind, they have a schedule and we want them to come back, 90 minutes max Lord! Okay it’s show time, hope you will join us Lord,” Matthew 15:9.
Now here’s the prayer that thrills heaven.
“Lord have your way, for I have no idea what I am doing! I have no idea what you want to do! These are your people and only you know their hearts, their pain, their struggles, and their sins. I am totally unqualified to deal with any of it! I will wait until you show up. It’s all yours Holy Spirit, take all the time you need,” John 5:30.
