We may receive answers and responses from Father that make us wonder if the two of us were communicating on the same page. What he gives us at times may be the farthest thing away from what we want to hear, but we can be assured that it comes from the highest standard possible.
Father does not bite his tongue when He responds and He is definitely no respecter of person. Whatever is on the menu to serve to us is exactly what we get. Our name, title and position in life will have no influence on the entree. We may not have a taste for the dish served today. We may be craving something else totally, regardless, what is meant for Sam will not be traded and given to Betty because of whatever reason. We can trust that our serving of responses and answers come from the highest standard of integrity. There are no evil ingredients or evil intentions involved. It’s just pure Father serving up the best of His will for our life that just happen to be beyond our understanding most of the time.
I am here to report that if we understood what He was doing with us, we would not need Him to be there to assist us in our daily walk. I mean, it’s not a bad sign that we don’t usually agree with His direction. Think about it. How can we agree with answers and responses that we didn’t have in us until He gave them. That is no crime or spiritual fault of ours. We went to Father in the first place for these answers and responses because we didn’t have them.
We are not stupid I don’t think. Well, are we? Let me ask us. Did we know the responses and answers before He served them to us? The answer is no. At least for me the answer is no. I am not going to know that I am going to receive something that I may not want to hear and then go and ask for the almighty to give it to me. Ha, ha, ha!
So, I ask Him for the answers and responses that will take me to the next level. I am not going to be happy if I hear ear happy responses that do nothing for me. So let us make a choice hear today and now. Do we trust the responses and answers from the highest standard and move to the next level or do we long for ear happy responses and answers and stay in the same spot? It is a no brainer for me. Give me, give me the new non ear happy responses and answers if that’s what they are on this particular menu day. I much rather hear what will move me forward.
I will end with this question for today. Isn’t it insanity to continue doing the same good ol ear happy answers from family, friends or whatever standard it may be and stay in the same ol unchanged state?
Think about it.
