I’m In! No, no, no, no: I’m not speaking of seeing your way in after you run into a snag with your plans. What I’m talking about is being apart of what he’s doing, at the moment he starts doing it. Now if the truth be known, the moment that you hit that snag while out doing what you do, it maybe the exact moment that the Father begins to do whatever it is that he plans on doing with you. And the reason that you hit the snag in the first place is because “The Father Has Big Plans For You,” and the snag is one of ways to ask, “Are You In?” Hey, the best thing that we all can do, is to be trending toward whatever the Father is doing based on what we believe it is that he told us to do. When you wake up each day, it is your hope that you have correctly received the Word of faith, as you believe in it to be. And then you must to the best of the measure of faith given to you, as the measure of faith is given to every man according to the grace of God, apply this faith to the work at hand to bring to pass that in which you hope for. By no means are you to make the mistake in believing, especially before you run into snags or adjustments, that you are on your way down the Glory Brick Road. And always keep your staple scriptures of building toward that you hope for close at mind. For example, you just know from the skill gained from walking in the Word that what you may see happening early on in the walk, may very well not be what you will be seeing happening a little later in the walk: 1 Corinthians 2:9, “But as it is written, Eye hath not seen, nor ear heard, neither have entered into the heart of man, the things which God hath prepared for them that love him.” You know how in a crime drama, the person of interest is trying to meet with someone with vital information, and the first thing ask is, “were you followed?” And the person knows that he had a tail on him earlier, and he took the tail through some twist and turns to make sure that the tail was lost: you are going to take your prince of this world tails on you through some twist and turns to make sure that you are not followed to the place that you hoped for. So do not be alarmed, or made afraid when the Father ask if you are in with a snag or with a challenge that shows up by surprise. Your response to these things is what lets the Father know your answer.
The key thing to remember is that you are never fully informed by the Father of that which maybe coming around the corner. Oh yeah, the Father is kind of expecting us to just trust him with child like faith when it comes to things like that. It’s like the way I have it with my twelve year old son: my son just does not believe that I would do anything to hurt him or to not have his back. The other day I was showing him how to jump off a car, you know, just in case something happens while out with his mom if I’m not around, say like an interior light being left on too long, or whatever else that could drain the battery. Yes, we have AAA, but there are places we go where AAA may not can respond in less than a hour. So what you gone do if it’s only a dead battery? Yeah, you find a good Samaritan car willing to give you a jump off. Anyway, I had shown him how to connect the post, but I didn’t finish the jump because I wanted him to get the credit for doing it. So I told him to go ahead and reconnect them, and he just took one at a time while remembering as long as he doesn’t touch the cables that he’ll be find. Then he said that he was ready to crank it as I’m standing there watching the process all the way. So I asked him what he thought would happen if we tried cranking it, and the posts were connected wrong. He said that it would blow up, and then he said that he wasn’t worried about that happening because I was standing there watching what he was doing. I thought about that and how we as sons and daughters of the Father should be: When the Father sends us into a snag or a challenge, are we okay with it simply because we know that the Father is there with us watching, and we stay in faith because he has our backs regardless? Don’t answer that with a yes if you don’t know if you really know the answer to that. It’s not required that you answer that at this moment because the Father will surely call you out on that if you don’t mean it. I understand from one of my favorite actors of all time, that “a man should know his limitations.” Listen, the Father Has Big Plans For You, but do you know that the only limitations that he has are the ones that you discover for him along your journey. There will be snags along the way, but they are not for you. They are there for you to lose that which is tailing you, so that the Father can get you to the Big things in store for you. Be like a child, and just trust Pa Pa: do you think that he is going to let down that kind of trust? I know he is not going to do so. Now join in with me, and let’s answer the Father with a Big “let’s do this thing,” the next time he sees the need to get that tail off your back.
The Father Still Does Love To Do The Body Good.
