There are a few instances in where a clear picture of what’s going on is distorted because of what one may bring to the table in the form of anointing, gifting, and skill level in the over all production of the fruit of the Spirit. Many times, in order for a clear picture to be given on of who or what maybe the real culprit of the action that’s going on, one will need to “Stand Down, And The Father Will Take It From Here.” When we intervene in the midst of chaos between family, friends, and anyone in our close circle of loved ones, it is done out of love, and only to be of help. If we can just calm things down we say to ourselves, or put out a puff of smoke or two, maybe God can kick in and finish what I started to make everything alright. That’s nice, isn’t it? However, there are a few instances in which our intervening only provides cover for the real culprit, and that cover just allows the culprit to be on the medication being given by you until you wear off again a little later on. And the way that you can tell that it was just a fix, and not a change of heart or a renewing of the mind is because just as soon as the next opportunity comes along to set it off, it is off and running again in full culprit form. And you will see the same pattern continue off and on: the culprit acts up, you act in, and you go around and around in the same manner each and every time until so much time has passed, it’s labeled and becomes a regular part of everyone’s life. I can ear loved ones saying now, “you know that’s just how he acts when he hasn’t had his medication.” No, do something about it; at least give him a snickers bar. lol! Okay, there I go, I had been so good for the last few post, but that snickers bar was too good to resist.
So why do you need to stand down, and the Father Will Take It From Here? We have already mentioned the medication from you in the form of your anointing, gifting, and over all skill to produce the needed fruit of the Spirit till the cows come home. You maybe like I am, I can tolerate a thing/person from my garden for more than so long, and like a sleeper hold in wrestling, it will just take the fight right away from them as it takes them out while again providing the culprit cover. Everyone is not able to with stand chaos as though it’s coming from a Gnat; and sometimes it takes a long time for the fruit medication to take over: and then many wouldn’t have the desire to produce the patience needed to wait for the sleeper hold medication to work. Then say that you intervene in a routine, non-life-hurting or non-life-threatening chaos, if you have the greater anointing among all in the midst, guess what, you will again provide cover for the culprit because what you say then and there will just command performance because of your anointing. In that situation, not only Jesus does that spirit know, or Paul does that spirit know, it also knows that if you knew what it knows about you, that it would be off to the swine immediately. Another form of cover can be provided to the culprit from the medication from your gifting. You may be gifted in the prophetic as defined in the New testament: if you come in and edify the person from your gift, it’s like giving the culprit laughing gas as you will have them as happy as can be to hear all the good things coming from your mouth: there is nothing but cover here; and you know how the Holy Spirit is once you get in the flow, it will more than likely bring forth a few words of wisdom about the future once you have it flowing on. So yes, definitely Stand Down, And The Father Will Take It From Here. Plus you know how the Godhead works, the Father will not move in until you stand down: He will be coming from a whole different perspective in which there will be no cover provided for the culprit to find: now only the Father has the Will, still unspoken by his Word, to bring to pass that which has no cover for the culprit to hide.
The Father Still Does Love To Do The Body Good.
