There is so much that we can do as members of the Body of Christ to live this life more abundantly as soon as we can just put God first in our lives. Yeah I Know, and we all really do believe that to be the case, but if the truth be known, God by default has already fallen from Billboards top ten list in our lives from the get go. The poor baby first words come forth trying to keep God in the number one spot, but because the baby isn’t of age to have God in the number one spot already, the beginning of words when the baby is trying to say God God, all that we can hear from the baby is Goo Goo! lol. And then over the next twelve to eighteen years of that child’s life, the parents will have moved the child’s top ten God routines back onto the Billboards list. So the child is raised by good parents with obviously good intentions, but the child will start young adult hood with mainly good routines that are meant to teach the child the way in which to go. My point to this is simple, we start off our life when we do come of age already with more things and thoughts occupying our top of the Hill list, that it does take a long time to break good routines, and begin to replace them with God realities of most in which we have not yet seen.
The Father knows our deal from birth, so he is not coming at us initially with eyes that kill. He will look at us for a while to see which of the routines that we have learned are being useful to us now that we have come of age, and have to be responsible for our own actions instead of our parents. It was God’s word on ways concerning training a child, from the son of a Father who loved God quite dearly, but stayed in trouble himself on a regular basis, that allows for the learning curve of reality to really transform all the great routines that we grew up on: Proverbs 22:6, “Train up a child in the way he should go: and when he is old, he will not depart from it.” You see, we as children get great foundation, but until it becomes applicable in a measure that can bring about consequences, those great foundations lay in wait for the pouring concrete of reality to help them all settle in. Even the scripture allows for time to learn by extending behavioral credit up until, and when the child is old. However, parents should and do keep laying the foundation for the child, as it is the seed planted that will allow parents’ prayers to grow up into the harvest that they desire, even if it is years later. It’s just the way it is as we humans must in most case experience the consequences of our ways, before our ways become our realities and not just our routines. I did a lot of reading on the training we get as we grow up, and what I found out was that kids that even come from the best of spiritual homes, where we know the training in the Word is more than a routine unto the parents, but still in many cases, the kids need their own realities to settle in before transforming from viewing it as just routines for kids of spiritual parents.
1 Kings 18:46, “And the hand of the Lord was on Elijah; and he girded up his loins, and ran before Ahab to the entrance of Jezreel.” The power to have the Father push ahead, that in which you are pushing comes from knowing that routines are the foundation of all your realities. One day down the line at thirty-five, forty-five, and whatever-old five in which you may end your jive, it will be one of the routines from your training of your young years that will bring the light back for you to see. The Father’s whole world for the most part was made a routine for us to build on as he rested from all of his building after the sixth day. The Sun always does what it routinely does, it is joined by the rivers that routinely do what they routinely do, I understand that the birds still routinely fly South for the winter after all this time as they have routinely done, and so on and so forth does the routine goes on. And then at some point the Father wants an adventure, and looks down at what he knows that he count on to be doing what it should be doing, then when he stretches forth his hand, he will routinely push ahead, that which you are pushing. Continue to push what it is that he has told you to push so that when he looks down for the routine that he knows, it will be your routines that gets a spiritual push in the natural, and moves you into the reality in which you hoped for. Elijah was on a Word that became a routine from just doing what God had told him to do. Elijah was not looking for a routine, but in looking for the rain to come, it became a seven times over routine. Always remember this, God could have made it rain on the first try, but all of those other six tries were to allow everything involved of man to have the time to be properly positioned. In order to get the push you need from the spiritual, you need all of the pieces involved in the natural to be in position to be a part of the push. Elijah knew to trust his seal team, God, to have his back on that in which he can not see coming. Elijah, as with you and I, once we have the hand of the Lord on us, the routine is merely the exercise to receive the rain in which we hoped for. The rain coming from the routine extended is what allowed the hand of the Lord to push Elijah to run pass a chariot. Once we stick to the Word given, no matter how long the routine becomes, the power on the Word being made to have life as rain is obviously on Elijah to have a run at the chariot, but to have it more abundantly than just a natural man would have it. So keep pushing the Word routines given from the Father, and when he stretches out his hand to push, the push will push whatever you are pushing more abundantly than what is just natural.
The Father Still Does Love To Do The Body Good!
