There is one thing in which we as humans just will not seem to go around to avoid it; and that is our quicksand. We can find ourselves time and time again landing right slab in the middle of sinking trouble. And for all intents and purposes, landing right slab in the middle of quicksand, is like bringing hope to its death. If you notice, you seldom ever see anyone step into sinking trouble one foot in front of the other. No, they usually land far enough out in it to where there is no one, or no thing close enough to reach out for help. Even when we are going out into cold water for a safe swim, we can walk into the water slowly, one step at a time, while our bodies quickly make their adjustments to the new condition. I know, me too, I would just jump right off into the water, and be through with it; but most would rather take it step by step, line upon line, precept upon precept, here a little, there a little. lol. There I go again getting carried away with an explanation turning into scripture similar to a prayer turning into prophecy or a word of wisdom while in the prayer line. Let’s stop the explanation at “but most would rather take it step by step,” ok that’s good. The interesting thing about landing in the middle of sinking trouble, and not seeing it coming soon enough to just step away, is that we fail to see the degree of interest we have wrapped all up in it. Here is when we need to just recuse ourselves, and take no part in deciding this quicksand case; and let Father Have Jurisdiction Over Our Quicksand, If.
Yeah, we can look at other cases outside out interest, and see how the person is about to walk right slab in the middle of sinking trouble; however, when we have the same sinking trouble, we can’t see it soon enough as we can with others to avoid landing to far out to help ourselves. When we are unable to see it because we are just to close to it, we end up staying around the trouble too long. This is not the view in which we have when the quicksand involves others: we are not around their trouble, therefore, we can see how to step away from it. When you stay and play around quick sand, or sinking trouble too long, you can’t afford to make any stumble. Once you have stayed and played around sinking trouble too long, you lose sight of its edges because it has drawn you into its middle to where you no longer no where it begins. And just as soon as you realize that you would need to break free and leave this place, you can no longer see where the quicksand begins because you have now landed slab in the middle of the trouble. There is a kind of jurisdiction that only comes forth by prayer and fasting, or in other words, when you are sinking in quicksand type trouble, you need the one who has the Jurisdiction to come get you out, if. If you are willing to turn your will over to the Will of the Father, then you can get the help needed for your sinking trouble. We keep forgetting who is the prince of this world, and he does not have to give up his jurisdiction over theses things to the Father without our consent. And the way in which we give our consent to the Father is by giving our will over to the Will of the Father. Since you and I were born in the earth, we have the right of citizenship, and the Father does not. The Father decided that is was time to bring his full arsenal of weapons to the warfare, and not let the prince of this world destroy his people with superior weapons. The Father sent Jesus here as a son of man so that Jesus would have the right of citizenship here on the earth. The Father also gave to Jesus the fullness of the Godhead arsenal to be able to stand up against the evil one, and to show us how to fight the battle already won. We as members of the Body of Christ have access to the fullness of the Godhead, and all we have to do to give the Father the jurisdiction over our quicksand, is to give His Will access to our sinking problems through our will. If we as citizens of the earth give the Father’s Will access to the earth through our will, His Will can be done. What was the last thing said by Jesus to the Father in the garden as Jesus finish preparations to enter into his hour at hand: Matthew 26:42, “O my Father, if this cup may not pass away from me, except I drink it, thy will be done.” Let’s go give the Father the Jurisdiction over our quicksand: Father, thy will be done. Now Father will have the Jurisdiction Over Our Quicksand, If thy will be done.
The Father Still Does Love To Do The Body Good.
