Father is where you have the space, and the freedom to be all that you can be in God. Jesus sets the perfect example of how to act as he realized at the age of twelve years old that he did not yet have the freedom, the space, and the agreement to be all that he could be in the eyes of his beholders: he knew who he was at that age, but he was still a child to them at that age. Here we can feel Jesus’ pain as he submitted to his ceiling while knowing that his upside was being about his Father’s business. And in the innocence of a child with a single purpose of mind, you can ear his emotional response to the bondage, good bondage, that was keeping him from his upside, but in line with the will of the Father because Jesus’ hour was no where near him yet. Luke 2:49, “And he said unto them, How is it that ye sought me? wist ye not that I must be about my Father’s business?” They were not privy to all that in which Jesus had insight to: my God, Jesus was once the “Word” before being made flesh, and no one can know it like he knows it, except the Father in which all thing come. The one thing that Jesus would always express emotion toward was his Father: of course, even at twelve, Jesus knew that his hour had not come yet, but he loved pleasing his Father. And don’t mention later on when he was older, and they had turned his Father’s house into a market, who was that mask man cleaning out the place? I can tell you that it wasn’t the wild wild west!
Do you get all worked up when others, even those of your fold, are not out to please the Father in the same manner as you are? Well then, you have a brief sense of the emotion in which Jesus would express doing those times. It reminds me of the one time in my life, according to my wife, that I experienced morning sickness. She was pregnant, and I somehow was allowed in on the action: I, for a couple or three hours one day, had a brief sense of the morning sickness that women go through. And women, when men tell you that they would take your place if they could, they mean well, but you of all people know better. It is no way that they would make such a statement if they knew and did what you know and do. So Christians, we only know briefly how Jesus feels when others are not giving his Father the reverence due him, but believe me, that brief feeling is enough to carry you over to your upside. When you feel stuck, and not able to move forward, you need to go to the Father to have your ceiling removed. Yeah, Jesus came back under his ceiling, but at twelve years old, that’s what you do. You on the other hand just need to know that your ceiling, does not know all that you know about what the father has for you. It is your downfall when you look to your bondage to be your freedom fighter: your bondage can only fight for what it knows, and believes. It has no idea, or way of knowing how to fight for that in which eyes have not seen nor have ears heard. Listen, follow the “Word” all the way until you can’t go any farther; and keep watch for any openings that the “Holy Ghost” is going to open up for you concerning that “Word.” Now, are you stuck yet? This is an ongoing process that will run you into your ceilings over and over according to each “Word” that you desire to bring to pass. Your job is once the “Word” and the “Holy Ghost” combo have brought you to your ceiling, you must look to see your upside, and then step to it, aka, Father. The “Word” and the “Holy Ghost” will bring you to the door of your time and season, but you must step to it on your own. Let me put it this way: let’s say that Jesus’ parents were the ceiling or the bondage to him at twelve years old, and let’s say that Jesus saw an opportunity to increase his upside by being about his Father’s business: Luke 2:46, “And it came to pass, that after three days they found him in the temple, sitting in the midst of the doctors, both hearing them, and asking them questions.” Now, are you going to ask your bondage to let you be free, or are you going to step into your upside and just be free? Adults, when you see your upside just standing there, there will be no push from the bondage, you must step to the Father’s business with your own faith.
Father Still Does Love To Do The Body Good.
