It came to me just the other day how the people of God sometimes play as big of part in the delay of receiving what they hope for, as does the enemy. I was talking to someone who had done correctly in making her request known to the Father. Then as she was thanking the Father in advance for not only his review and consideration of the request (lol. there I go again), but also for the eventual receiving of the request, something in what I was hearing from her hit me wrong. I began to no longer hear in her words the worry free joy that we express just knowing that our request is in his hands now; however, I was beginning to hear more of the iffy type stuff in which one can not bring to the Father at all. If we come to the Father all iffy, then we will not have his ear because he does not hear a iffy. When we come to the Father, we must come assured, and believing that he has our back: Hebrews 11:6, “But without faith it is impossible to please him: for he that cometh to God must believe that he is, and that he is a rewarder of them that diligently seek him. So as the lady continued in her way of talking, for she was talking up more of the iffy stuff. I am a very nice person, but I had had all I could stand, and I could stand no more. Then out of no where, I called her by name and I just said to her, “stop all of that whining to God, or he will never finish up.” It’s like Man, or Woman, if she was not careful, she was going to bury the thing hoped for under all that iffy stuff. So that is how I came to the title of my post for today: Stop Your Whine Up, So Father Can Wind-Up.
The Father will not be able to wind-up, or complete the thing that we hope for if we do not believe he can and will complete it. And it’s okay to have some nerves at the start of a faith operation, but like anything else, once you warm up with a thank you Jesus, then you know to settle down into the flow of the process in confidence. So yeah, we have to make our request known to the Father as Jesus directed us to, but I have it from a very reliable source that the Father hears very well: John 11:42, “And I knew that thou hearest me always: but because of the people which stand by I said it, that they may believe that thou hast sent me.” Now I know how it sounded to me with my human hearing as the lady was talking. I can only imagine what doubt and disbelief dressed all up in praise and worship sounds like to the Father with him having the top of the line Spiritual hearing. You see, all I had to do is get off the phone to not hear anymore of it if the lady was bent on continuing along that same pattern; however, the Father can’t run and get away from it with the type of hearing that he has. No, he will just have to hit the spiritual mute button. Now I know that Jesus said that the Father always hearest him, but Jesus was always saying stuff that the Father always wanted to hear. We have few differences with the tree in that regards; and as a matter of fact, we fall very close to the tree in wanting to be well pleased also. If you want to keep our attention, just keep talking to us about things that makes us well pleased. However, there is the one major difference with the tree when it comes to its apples, and it is so no matter how close those apples fall near to the tree. Flattery may get you everywhere with most of the apples, but just keep in mind that flattery will get you no where with the tree. Stop Your Whine Up, So Father Can Wind-Up.
So if you are having a challenge in receiving a Word sent from Jesus to lead you to the Will of the Father, this is not the time for flattery. The lady that I spoke of earlier in the post, does indeed love the Son and the Father with all of her heart, but here is the problem as I found it out to be. It was not the Father, Jesus or even the Word sent forth from Jesus for her to stand on and believe, in which she found her challenge. And it was this challenge that she found that had her coming forth with all the iffy stuff as she just wanted to give God praise. The challenge she had is the same challenge that many members of the Body of Christ run into, but they have not developed the skill of word execution, and fruit of the Spirit development to by-pass the challenge. What is the challenge? The challenge is to select the faith in which you believe, and not necessarily the faith that you heard first, although it came by the Word of God. The lady was not at all iffy about the Godhead, or the Word sent forth by the Godhead member, Jesus. She was talking all iffy because she had grabbed on to faith substance from the Word in which she was not at peace with to handle. Remember this, when a Word comes forth from Jesus, and it falls on good soil, which is your belief and faith that it will bring to pass what you hope for. Here’s the key, that Word is going to bring forth or produce forth faith substances like crazy if it landed in good soil. What the lady needed to have done, and I did leave her where she needed to be before I hung up the phone from talking to her, so she’s good now; but she needed to have by-passed the early faith substance produced from the Word that gave her doubts, and have waited for faith substance in which she believed. Many members of the Body of Christ grab the first faith substance that comes forth because it matches their Word, but it does not match the level of the measure of faith in which they have been given. So they will need the fruit of the Spirit to be strong in patience, and just let that puppy pass on by. If a person doesn’t feel comfortable at a certain Word challenge level, they will be iffy: they will produce in and out moments of doubt and disbelief that will reduce the effectiveness of their faith. So once you have a Word from Jesus to let you know the Will of the Father, and when that Word starts to bring forth substances to bring to pass that which you hoped for, just make sure you choose the substance in which you believe. This will have you at the proper faith, and you will be able to please the Father. It is okay with the Godhead for you to by-pass any substance that will put you in doubt. This is one reason why you have the fruit of the Spirit: there is no law for the fruit: it can run free for as long as you need to produce it to hold on. Stop Your Whine Up, So Father Can Wind-Up.
