I lost my natural father now going on ten years, but when he was alive, you knew when he entered into the room. His presence commanded your attention even when he wasn’t trying to get it. You know how doing praise and worship service, and the presence of the Spirit is ushered in; and you can just feel its presence ready to do something? Well, when my father entered in, his presence made you want to watch your p’s and q’s as he always paid attention to the details. The father I once obeyed the most would have been my natural father: my natural father “never” had to repeat himself twice to any of his three children. You know how they say that all kids are different, and his three kids were all different, but they were all the same when it came to obeying his word: we just did it. I tell my kids today, whatever my father had, it sure didn’t pass on to me. I am more like my Heavenly Father when it comes to having my word obeyed: sometimes it gets obeyed quickly, sometimes it’s obeyed between tweets requiring just a little patience on my part, and then sometimes it’s obeyed after I express my desire with the legal owner’s recall for a day or so on the cell phone for minor repair. Boy, I don’t know why that works so well, but It does. I like the one that my Heavenly Father is famous for: he will take your “word of Increase” if you don’t use it, and just pass it on to someone else. How do you think his will get’s done that you don’t do: it sails on, it just sails on. Just think of it like a ride share service: if the driver passes up on a ride request, there are many drivers near by ready to take that ride request, and sail on, and just sail on. I just love God in the Bible, and yeah, I love him out of the Bible too, but he always came back at his pause people with stuff when they even acted as though they had him over a barrow: like, I don’t mean to brag little “1” because it’s not Godsidential’, but I got over 7,000 prophets that will not bow down to Baal; and one of the many other come backs of God that I just love goes like this, huh, don’t say nothing then, and keep silent, man I got stones that immediately will cry out.
It seems that our heavenly Father got it covered no matter what we do, so I highly suggest that we obey him not because we must, but because we love him like that. My natural father did not punish me with whippings in order for me to obey him, I just loved him like that. I was the oldest child, and I sat the example for the younger two to follow. So this is why my natural father received the nod over my Heavenly Father at first as most obeyed between the two. I can only remember receiving one good whipping back in the day from my father, and it stuck with me. It also became a source of strength for me in understanding his word, and the power behind his word. For example, my father once told me that if I ever came home, and someone had beaten me up, that he would beat me up. The power from that one and only whipping that he had given me came to light. I can remember this bully coming at me one day, and I guess it was my turn since the bully was making his rounds, but he should have come before the word of my father had connected with his power. I said to myself, if I got to choose between dealing with my father vs this little grasshopper, it is a no brainer. You see, once I knew the power of my father in a way that was down in my soul, any bully, anyone, and bring them all, they just seem like grass hoppers to me. I did not ever have to deal with that bully again, and nor did I have to deal with any other issue again through out junior high school, high school or college. You see when you know your power source, and you know the one that has true power over you, it is a no brainer when it comes down to who’s word, and who’s will you have instilled. My heavenly Father now reigns supreme over all, and he was able to secure that title from my natural father a few years before his passing. And now, it doesn’t matter the bully because I have firmly establish the Heavenly Father as my power source, and the one with full power over my life: everything, and everyone else are simply grasshoppers. I have also changed the name that I had given to a bully, a challenge, and a anything that is contrary to my Heavenly Father’s will for my life: at the level that I am at now in the Father, I thought naming them grasshopper to be giving too much power, so I now name all contraries, and adversaries of mine the name of “gnat.”
