You may not realize this, but Father wants to bring to pass the things that He promised you as quickly as you want him to: yesterday. He is out there pulling for you each and every minute of the day. Father wants to be reunited with the rest of his family just like you would want to be reunited with your family if you were separated. Oh man, I remember a few years back when we first moved to LA, the traffic was like none we had ever encountered. We were driving in separate vehicles as we were moving our items with us in a moving van. Then it happened, my family and I got separated, lost from each other in LA traffic at the peak of rush hour. It would not have been as bad, but my cell phone had just died on me a little earlier at a rest area. So I have my wife, and at that time two small kids lost in LA. What was a man to do with no cell phone, and only one GPS in the moving van? My wife is calmly approaching panic mode when about 15 minutes or less after we got separated, her phone rings. Yes, it was me, the one with no cell phone. Although I had no cell phone, it didn’t mean that I had to stay separated. I just exited the freeway, and pulled into a McDonald’s to use a pay phone that I spotted from the street. This was the hardest part, before pulling into McDonald’s, I tried stopping at several places to use a pay phone:they hardly exist anymore. Anyway, I called my wife, and had her to exit the freeway at a place that served food. She gave me the address of the place, and I put it in the GPS: Reunited and it feels so good! There was a brief time during our separation when I had to keep my mind focused on the fact that we were just separated. I just had to keep it there, just keep it there, and now just die to any other thoughts. I knew my wife was expecting me to reunite the family, and she understood that I wanted to do it as fast as she wanted it to be done.
Do you understand that Father is depending on you to help him reunite with his family as soon as you can see the way available to make it happen? I hate to break the news to you, but if it was all up to Father, it would have happened yesterday. Someone may say to themselves, I thought that it was all up to Father to make sure I receive the promise of his word. I will say to you that the promise of his word is true, but are you able to be true to the promise. In the example above, I was able to be true to reuniting my family back to me after we were separated, but what if I didn’t have a GPS in either car? Could I stay patient, and keep it there, so I don’t have an accident in my haste to locate her. Could I have had a flat tire, and be delayed much longer. In my being delayed much longer, in what direction would she have continued to drive, or better yet, in what area of this large unfamiliar city could she find her self lost with two small kids? As with our spiritual walk, things can start simple, and then somehow become much more complicated. The question is not do you desire to reunite Father with the rest of his family, but do you still have enough resources available to make it happen? Yeah, I know, God will provide for all of our needs: boy do I know that, but here’s the thing. God is not just beginning to provide for all our needs, no, God has always been providing for all our needs. This is the point. Will we be able to get to the next level of what’s already been provided, or will we continue to over cook on what we have already been given. You know how the preachers preach that “new levels brings new devils? Well get ready to climb because new levels also require new provisions. We need to replenish our supplies in order to continue to win the fight, and reunite Father to his family.
Since you know the Bible pretty good, you know that God, and the word along with all of his power have been with each other since the beginning. John 1:2 says, In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God. Verse 2 says, The same was in the beginning with God. So how are you and I responsible for reuniting Father with the rest of his family? Jesus came down, and left the example for us to follow. The Word came down as flesh, away from God for the first time since the beginning, and declared God’s will through Jesus the only begotten son. Jesus took the word from God, which is how the world knows the will of God, and kept it until it was time to fulfill it. Once the time came to fulfill it, Jesus didn’t over cook it, he just gave up the ghost and died. The power of God raised him on the third day as it was spoken, and this allowed Jesus to take the word back to the Father fulfilled, and finished: All reunited to be one. Since Jesus is no longer here to do his Father’s work, you and I are the sons that carry out Father’s will known by the word that we speak on his behalf. So, you got the word that you say you believe came from God. If it came from God, it is no longer with him, but is now with you to bring back to him fulfilled, and finished. This is how you reunite father with his family of word, and power. The biggest challenge to us is that we look for Father to do more than he plans on doing. Just like with Jesus, Father expects you to do what is necessary to get his word back to him fulfilled, and finished. There are a lot of sons that truly love Father, but are not able to get that word back to him fulfilled, and finished. Don’t be discouraged, Father has always made the way for you to get that word back home without continuing to over cook what little resources you do have. You may have to exit off the main hwy for a minute, you may have to use someone else’s gift to contact home base, or you may have to be delayed longer than expected because of another’s failure to provide you resources that Father commanded them to give. Whatever the case maybe, just know to keep it there on the word. Let no one or thing make you change your activities. All activities must stay on, and be about the word that you are trying to get back to Father fulfilled, and finished. And just like with Jesus, when the time lines up with the word that you are carrying, don’t over cook it; just die right there, and watch Father raise it up unto himself. You may have close friends trying to prolong that word by cutting off soldier ears, but all this does is cause you to waste resources by over cooking your stay, and not fulfilling your word from Father. Jesus knew his word, and when it was time to die, he was the one leading the show. Whatever your word is to fulfil and finish, don’t over cook your word’s stay, surrender and die to it. Father Is Waiting!
