Are you ready to do what it takes to take it: Of course you are not? None of us are: it’s not to say that we are not willing, but ready implies prepared. No one is prepared to do what it takes to take it, or finish it. Even the best of the best at it even found himself having sweat that became like great drops of blood falling down to the ground. The main reason we can’t be prepared is because that’s the way the Father rolls: he will just show up with your time and season for you to just step into it. There will not be an alert bell, or a wake up call. When what you have been looking for shows up, that’s your ready, so jump in and follow the prompts. If you keep a watch out for what you’ve been looking for, you can get a sense of the time as its substances begin to move into the area to form it, and bring it to pass.
In the parable of the ten virgins all thought they were ready to go out and meet the bride groom: they all had oil in their lamps, and they all left to meet him at the same time. What happens next is the part where you just can’t prepare, and be ready for. The bride groom did the thing that made me say in the top paragraph, “of course you are not ready.” We can’t be ready for this: we can’t be ready for him when he takes extra time to address our foolishness. The virgins that carried extra oil with them were considered to be wise, but those that anticipated his arrival based on the itinerary became the foolish. They could have had doctorates, or just ones who new that things at this level always go off on time. How dare they not: I brought enough oil to burn with oil to spare, if things go according to my plan. People, hence we have it again, things are not going to go according to our plans, our readiness, and/or our preparation: here hides our foolishness. Father will tarry in his plans when he needs to make something right, not how it may make our plans wrong. If we want to be ready to do what it takes to take it, make sure we come with wisdom concerning him. Consider him in all his ways when joining in on one of his operations. We know that he’s on his own time: he even waited four days before showing up to raise up Lazarus from the dead. His operations are not about us, they are about him: it’s not the assistants whose names are in the head lines. We can never be ready to know when what about him is going to be what it takes, to take it.
What about me, what about me, what about you? Did you not take on this operation to do his will, and not your own will. Here is something that’s what about you that is for you: when dealing with Father, think of the things that you don’t like to do under that subject, and make sure you ready yourself for all of them. One of them may be the reason why he tarries in order to address that in you. Five of the virgins obviously preferred banking on the timeliness of the bride groom’s arrival, as oppose to bringing with them extra oil just in case things ran long: you can never be ready for, or know exactly what will show your foolishness today.
Father does Love To Do The Body Good.
