Fathertime: You Managing You, What’s A Father To Do With You?

How good are you at managing your resources, and let’s say people resources in particular: especially you managing you? Do you generally make decisions that are best for you, or will you make decisions that are generally best for Father’s will: what’s a Father to do with you? Let’s say that it was you in the Garden of God-give-it-to-me, aka, Gethsemane. So you leave your three best executives out of hearing distance, and you finish your talk to the invisible God, how would you have managed you – you think? WOW, this is the process that we go through everyday, all day, when dealing with Father. Your success in entering into Father-time depends on how you manage yourself at the time that the opening for entry into Father-time passes your way. If you are not good at managing you, you may go around in circles for forty years because of how you managed you. This has nothing to do with how other people are responding to you. This has everything to do with how you are responding to you. Let’s say that Moses does not respond to himself in the same manner as we all know, but let’s say that he in reality spoke to the rock instead of striking the rock? Do you see where I’m going with this? Boy, after all the royal living, after all the desert crossing, and after all the miracles galore, I know that Moses wishes that he could have managed himself better in that one instance of angry frustration. You ever felt that way? You just wished you could make that decision over just one more time: not two or three times God, just give-it-to-me to do over one more time. Well, as we know, it doesn’t work that way. Once done, is done, and it becomes as we say today: it is what it is.

So back to the Garden of God-give-it-to-me, aka, Gethsemane. This garden reminds me of a coin. It’s best to use it as a means to get the game started, not as a means to let the luck of the flip determine your outcome. If you are prepared properly when you enter into the Garden, you will come out of it a winner no matter the result of the coin toss. However, if you enter into the Garden not having processed properly before you got there, you will come out chopping off ears as Peter did because you let the flipping of the coin(you) determine how you would leave out of the Garden. Peter would have managed himself to receive the flip side of the coin, of God-give-it-to-me, my will is what I want done. We know that Jesus managed himself to receive the flip side of the coin, of Gethsemane, your will Father is what I want done. How are you doing with this process? Are you getting to the Garden, and allowing the outcome of the flip to determine how you manage you, or are you allowing the outcome of the process determine how you manage you?

What’s a Father to do with you is a great reality of truth. Father is going to do with you whatever it is that you continue to manage you to do. We don’t want to do all we can for God as so many have done only to lose it because of poor self-management. It really is all on the decisions that we alone must make: decisions made get you what you got when it comes to Father. He is about His will, not your will. We know that Moses was all about God’s business, but you can never simplify anything that involves Father. Yeah, the children of Israel may have pushed Moses to his limits, but not beyond his limit. In Father’s eyes, obedience to His every command trumps any type of excuse produced from frustration. Jesus had to manage Himself properly in the Garden because all of the cards to the plan was His to manage. When He prayed to the Father, He had already processed the answer before He prayed. There was no response to His plea did he even expect. When you know, and process the will of God, you don’t get to the entry to Father-time in the Garden an expect a different outcome. How about you, do you know the will, but still manage yourself to expect a different outcome once in the Garden? If so, what’s a Father to do with you?

Stay Tune,

About Adopted Son

I graduated from college some moons ago. I worked in the business world most of my life. I founded, established and operated in the evenings a Christian based leadership and special tactics consulting group. I also served for years as a leader in the Church which allowed me to see how people of like faith can receive different results depending on what the individual person believes. However, my current and ongoing mission is to highlight the greatness of my "Heavenly Father's" mighty power that He has given to His sons and daughters to use here on earth. I should be one to share on this power since I have learned of it through the experience of my many mistakes, trials and tribulations. Whether by default, learned behavior or by acquired faith, I was allowed to know of this power first hand so that I could speak of it! Adopted Son and Number 1 Fan of Father
