The one thing that we can count on receiving from God on his time of our being in need is help. If we do want to do his Will, and we do want to follow his Word; then Father will help us. I mean, I just know in the natural that if my children do want to do my will, and they do want to follow my word, then I will help them if they come up short. And as parents, we still help them if they come up short when they don’t have the maturity yet, or the understanding yet to want to do our will, or to want to do as we say when they should. And Father is not one to be out done by a natural father, as he will go much further to help us than any natural dad could ever help his kids: Matthew 7:11, “If ye then, being evil, know how to give good gifts unto your children, how much more shall your Father which is in heaven give good things to them that ask him? And this is another lesson in which we as adult members by age in the Body of Christ can learn from our natural children. They may at times do not want to follow our will, and our words being children; however, they will continue to come to us asking for their wants to be met. They do not run out of the house with all things being equal over to the neighbors, and ask them one by one for a X-box console. No no, they know by their innate kindred relationships from birth onward to cling to mama, to papa, to siblings, and so forth to get their help. And by the time children are able to walk, and run over to a neighbor’s house, they already know where cometh their help. Their help cometh from their parents in this house; and the neighbors can’t even make the help me list, even though they be so close over there in their house. Matthew 18:3-4, “And said, Verily I say unto you, Except ye be converted, and become as little children, ye shall not enter into the kingdom of heaven. 4 Whosoever therefore shall humble himself as this little child, the same is greatest in the kingdom of heaven.” So if we would humble ourselves as a child, and eat that bowl of oatmeal only that’s in this house; and not be as a man think it that we can go run over to the neighbors’ house to eat that omelet and pancakes, then we will be greatest in the kingdom. Father’s Question To Us Is, Do We Want To?
We do have an advantage over the children in that we get to come to the Body of Christ of our own free will. And even though the children do not have a say about their coming into the world to live with whom ever, they will know right off with all things being equal that they are where they belong. The children will begin to not only know that they belong from the love being given them from mom, dad, and everyone else around them; but the children even at their infant stage of life will begin to take bond with the ones there wanting to help take care of their needs. If every time I have a need as a infant child, and it is the same one(s) taking care of my needs; they will become the one(s) that I will horn in on as I grow. I know that we welcome the new child to become attached to his or her new family; however, the newborn child is going to grow to be attached to who attaches to it without returning a RSVP. The child is not going to need to reply back to you accepting your offer of love, but it is going to accept your offer of love because it is there to feed the need. And over a not so long period of time, the child will begin to gladly take from you whatever form of love in which you know is right to give to the child. This process of love from birth onward turns the child into knowing who, he or she, wants to get help from. When it comes to you and I, after so long time with the Lord, do we want to get our help from the Lord? We first came into the Body of Christ with so many needs to be helped, who was there to take care of those needs for us to know where to run to for help? Did we not yet receive enough help from the Lord in our early development so that we will only want to get our help from his house. What would make us want to run to a neighbor’s house at this stage of our walk to receive our help? When the children only have a bowl of oatmeal, how can they stay happy if they do not get that omelet and pancake today from somewhere else? Well, the children know who they belong to, and who they belong to is where their help will come from; and that is the way it is. So who do you belong to? If you are a member of the Body of Christ, then you belong to the Lord; and if you belong to the Lord, then you must not run out on the process of God suppling your needs. John 15:1-2, “I am the true vine, and my Father is the husbandman. 2 Every branch in me that beareth not fruit he taketh away: and every branch that beareth fruit, he purgeth it, that it may bring forth more fruit.” Whose house will you want to have your help coming from? Joshua 24:15, “ And if it seem evil unto you to serve the Lord, choose you this day whom ye will serve; whether the gods which your fathers served that were on the other side of the flood, or the gods of the Amorites, in whose land ye dwell: but as for me and my house, we will serve the Lord.” Father’s Question To Us Is, Do We Want To?
The Father Still Does Love To Do The Body Good.
