We will never hear Father say, oh, I forgot to think about that. Yeah I know we hear it among ourselves all the time, but Father is not a man among ourselves that he can forget to think about that. There are two main reasons why Father is the dependable thinker, and therefore, he can not forget to think about that. However, let’s first identify what “that” is in which the Father can not forget to think about. John 14:21-23, “He that hath my commandments, and keepeth them, he it is that loveth me: and he that loveth me shall be loved of my Father, and I will love him, and will manifest myself to him. 22 Judas saith unto him, not Iscariot, Lord, how is it that thou wilt manifest thyself unto us, and not unto the world? 23 Jesus answered and said unto him, If a man love me, he will keep my words: and my Father will love him, and we will come unto him, and make our abode with him.” So this is “THAT” in which the Father can be counted on to keep in his thoughts to be a dependable thinker: if one keeps his commandments or his word, which both are the Will of the Father, then the Father can be dependent on to keep those of us in his thoughts. Wow, can you imagine spending your day in bliss as you just know that the Father got you on his mind? And in verse 22 stated above in this paragraph, we see the other Judas; and I can’t blame him for wanting to be clear on the matter. He ask Jesus how can we know that you have manifest yourself to us in order for us to know that our obedience is doing what it should do? Not bad, not bad at all: I wouldn’t want to have been thinking that I was keeping the commandments and the word the whole time, if I was not; and I had a way in which to know one way or the other. So Jesus lets him know that not only will you know that I am thinking about how you are keeping my commandments; for I and my Father will come unto you and make our abode with you. And furthermore, you will also know that we were thinking about you because we came and made our abode by way of your obedience, you didn’t even have to send out an invite: once we saw that you were keeping our commandments and our word to do the Will of the Father, we were on the way to you of our own free thinking accord. lol. Father, The Dependable Thinker.
So we know what the “that” is in which Father is the dependable thinker: the keeping of his commandments and his word as they both make up his Will. And now we can know with assurance that he hears us to manifest and show that he is thinking. We want to do the commandments and the word in order for him to come abode with us to manifest the commandments and/or word that we are bringing to pass. We need the Lord and the Father to abode with us so that the manifestation of what we said to others can be brought to pass. Jesus said that he knew that the Father always hears him; therefore, Jesus knew that the manifestation of what was said would always be with him. 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.” Jesus shows us one of the reason why the Father is the dependable thinker: Jesus always gave the Father the petitions in which he knew that the Father would always hear. John 6:38, “ For I came down from heaven, not to do mine own will, but the will of him that sent me.” It is difficult to always do the Will of the Father, even if it is our intent to always do the Will of the Father. Sometimes we just don’t know yet, what the Will of the Father is; and we then fall into the back up plan by default, our will. The other reason why the Father is the dependable thinker is that we are growing more and more in our relationship to know his ways. The Father is not an easy one to get it right the first few times because it is not about us; but it is all about his Will. Jesus keeps us in his safe house by coming to abode with us along with the Father. Jesus will not let us deal with the Will of the Father on our own until we are ready. We can only get to the Father by the son: John 14:6, “Jesus saith unto him, I am the way, the truth, and the life: no man cometh unto the Father, but by me.” When we come to the Father with all kind of stuff that has nothing to do with his Will, Jesus is there to help us process and grow as we are still within his Body. Always remember, the Will and the Word are one, and they always abode together until we venture into left field, and need some comfort to get back to that oneness. 1 John 5:14, “And this is the confidence that we have in him, that, if we ask any thing according to his will, he heareth us. Father will hear us on any thing according to his will; however, he will not hear those who stray away from the truth. John 4:23, “ But the hour cometh, and now is, when the true worshippers shall worship the Father in spirit and in truth: for the Father seeketh such to worship him.” The Word and the Will will always abode together, and they will manifest with us as long as we keep them together; and this is our confidence.
