My older son is teaching himself to play the acoustic guitar. He already taught himself the bass guitar, keyboard, Hammond organ, and the piano; and others he is occasional still working on.
He has excelled in his learning the ones he seems to enjoy the most. The more we can accomplish doing the things we enjoy the most… the more accomplished we become in the things we enjoy.
The LORD has been teaching you things during your walk with Him. There are things we have come to excel in,while learning to hear The LORD’s Voice, and there are things we may tend to occasionally do because we can’t seem to see ourselves excel in them.
But The LORD is The LORD Who Sees and the God Who Knows!
There are times when The LORD has told me to write, when I can’t seem to see whether I am really doing Him justice with what I am writing.
But the obedience to The LORD’s Voice is the work He has begun in me, and He will perfect that which concerns my walk with The LORD.
To love Him is to obey Him…..
There are times where your heart and your spirit are so tuned in to the move of the Holy Spirit. There are times where you are not completely sure of how connected to His Heart you really are.
But He is looking upon your believing heart while your obedience seems weak to you. But His Heart has been the One all along that has been giving you the cries of your heart that He has been longing to hear, where you are saying, “LORD, I can’t seem to really say what You are trying to say to me.”
But the Spirit of The LORD says, “My son, give Me your heart so that I can show you the way.”
His ways are so much higher than our ways, His thoughts so much higher than our thoughts. As high as the Heavens are above the earth, so much higher are his ways than our ways, and His thoughts higher than our thoughts. (Isaiah 55)
So what will it take to know the thoughts of The LORD?
“For who has known the mind of The LORD that we may instruct Him,” (1 Corinthians 2:16a).
“But we have the mind of Christ,” (1 Corinthians 2:16b).
“Come unto Me all who are weary and heavily laden, and I will give you rest. Come and learn of Me and you will find rest for your souls. For My yoke is easy and my burden is light,” (Matthew 11:28-29).
To Accede is the yield without question……
