I have frequently suggested that everything we do does not always depend on if God be willing. In many of my previous post I have suggested to you that you make sure that you be willing before taking it to the Father to find out if he be willing. Many of my associates, friends, and family, even my mother, they get that pause from me when I hear them say, yes I will do it, “if God be willing”. I understand the meaning and intent behind it I think, but what is the meaning and intent behind it if you say it over half of the time, and then really believe it when you say it? I know that you are suppose to believe it when you say it, now don’t go getting all minor on me. I write post with the hope that I get from many of your profiles, and highly educated and accomplished profiles I may add, that I don’t need to always explain the obvious. Of course I know, and I hope that you do believe it when you say “if God be willing,” but to really believe it is a different matter. For example, for me to move from the west coast to the east coast is a “if God be willing” type of event; and to even say it more correctly would be to say, “if it is his Will for me to move from the west coast to the east coast. On the other hand, for me to go to a Church to hear a sweet battle of the Choirs, “if God be willing,” becomes a something that I really believe is merely for added security: do I really believe that before I can go to the Choir concert, God must first be willing? If I need to have God to be willing for me to do everything, before I do anything, how will I learn who I am in God? There are many times when God is going to just need me to be willing to do what he would want me to do, or what he would be okay with me doing, without me always needing to believe him for his willingness first. Now it may help some to go natural on this one for a minute in order to see it. When you taught little Johnnie, and precious Morgan how to ride their little bikes with the training wheels still on them, you were willing for them to ride it down to the park, but it was not your Will for them to do it right now. You were training, and teaching them at that younger age to know how and what to do; so when your Will caught up to your already be willing, they would just know at the older age when to go do it alone if they be willing. My mother is a senior citizen, and has been in the Lord from a small child up to now without intermission: do you mean to tell me that most of everything that she does still requires an “if God be willing? Shouldn’t she know most of what he’d be willing to do by now? We could leave the Father to those more needing to know, until we come forth into a next level son and daughter need where we would need the Father to know? And not just “if God be willing,” but “is it his Will” to do this thing? When ever I’m driving through out SoCal, and especially in the Los Angeles area, I take money to give out at certain intersections when I come up on people standing on the corner, if I be willing: and I am usually prepared and willing.
It’s So The Father To See What You Would Wilt. I am telling you, we are missing out on a lot of goodies here on the earth, and it is all because we don’t take the initiative to be more willing according to his Will. I don’t know why, but we get this concept in the natural: we know that the people who show the most willingness on the job to bring about results, according to the guidelines of the company, they get the most from the company. You may put in equal hours, and do equal work, but the one who takes the initiative to bring about more results, will be what we call, “the cream rising to the top.” It’s So The Father To See What You Would Wilt; and therefore, with a lot of us he has tabled some operations until we show him what we be willing to do all by our self. And it sure looks like we are here all by our selves, but he is looking on to see what you would WILT, to do. It was with Adam in the garden where we first see this concept displayed by God to the man: Genesis 2:18-20, “ And the Lord God said, It is not good that the man should be alone; I will make him an help meet for him.19 And out of the ground the Lord God formed every beast of the field, and every fowl of the air; and brought them unto Adam to see what he would call them: and whatsoever Adam called every living creature, that was the name thereof. 20 And Adam gave names to all cattle, and to the fowl of the air, and to every beast of the field; but for Adam there was not found an help meet for him.” There are many things on the table waiting for you, if you be willing to call them. God be willing, so don’t concern yourself with his willingness, but do make sure your willingness be according to his Will. Adam knew the Will of the Father was to find him a mate, so when the prospective mates were sent to be named, there was no willingness of God needing to be determined by Adam. And here is another thing with the Father, at times is seems like he is giving us time to know more about ourselves at heaven’s expense. God formed every beast of the field, and every fowl of the air, and brought them unto Adam. Why? It was not really to find a mate as we see in verse 20 stated above: there was not found a help meet for Adam. Did God not already know this? Well, I believe that God used this to determine if that Adam, the male and female as one, had already eaten from the tree of the knowledge of good and evil: how else could that natural Adam had known the names of all of the animals since God hadn’t told him? But let’s stick to the point, God was willing to have Adam do his Will, or name every beast and every fowl, to see what he would call them. Sometimes the Father is going to want to see what you will call his will, and you must know that he is already willing when the Will shows up. And remember, unlike Adam, we get to eat from both the knowledge of the tree of good and evil as well as the tree of Life: so we should know that we know!
It’s So The Father To See What You Would Wilt. Matthew 15:28, “Then Jesus answered and said unto her, O woman, great is thy faith: be it unto thee even as thou wilt. And her daughter was made whole from that very hour.
The Father Still Does Love To Do The Body Good!
