Let it GO!!!
“God is just sooo GOOD!!!” This is true, although, so many people, including myself, use this phrase when speaking of God’s character when “Good” is an immense underestimation of His nature! For those who have eyes set on His Kingdom, still, His character is inarguably beyond comprehension, as only He can produce the impossible. We stand in awe of you, LORD!!!
Praying for a word for the body of Christ, by Holy Spirit I saw a small blue economy car broke down on the side of the road, smoke barreling out from under its hood. It was evident, by the frustration on the driver’s face, that having to pull over on the side of the road had interrupted something important, and then there was that look of desperation in hopes that someone might stop to lend a helping hand. Vision ended. Biblically, the color blue represents the Healing Power of God. Blue is a representation of God, or service to God and Godly living (Exodus 28:6, 8, 13, 31, Num. 15:38-40, Esther 8:15). The color blue represents the presence of Yahweh! Symbolically, car represents important pursuit in life and ministry, it takes us from one destination to another.
This is what the Lord is saying today, “Obedience is better than sacrifice.” [John 14:23] The Lord is calling us to accept His proposal of enlargement and expansion for the benefit of His KINGDOM! During this period in time, He is using a spiritual hands-on approach to break down a spirit of slothfulness that will shake us loose from the fear of letting go of what no longer works. When I heard the word, slothful, I thought the Lord was speaking of spiritual laziness, however, based on Hebrews 6:12, I now understand that “slothful” doesn’t have anything to do with laziness! It comes from the Greek word “nothros” and describes something that is dull, monotonous, or unexciting; or something that has lost its speed or momentum. This “something”, whatever it may be, can no longer work for the anointing is no longer in it. What’s more is that when we try to do things by our own will, after a time, there is total frustration. The Lord has been waiting on us to surrender ALL so that He can take us to the next level in our lives and ministries. What is it you are holding onto that the Lord wants you to relinquish? The Lord has been telling me lately, “Hold loosely what you have, for it may be for you to pass along!!” Giving away or letting go of certain things can be challenging, but this is what the Lord is saying, “Clean out the clutter in your dwellings. I have new treasures to bequeath you, resources and reserves, followed by a new and fresh anointing!! This can only be acquired by a cleansing of the heart. I give it all to you,” says the Lord, “I have places to send you that will require spiritual discipline and extreme obedience and your ears WILL perceive My voice, the sound of many waters, as you take note of My directions. I will not let you fail.” (Eccl. 3:6)…a time to search and a time to give up, a time to keep and a time to throw away… God knows our hearts, and He warns us to guard them with diligence:“Keep thy heart with all diligence; for out of it are the issues of life” (Proverbs 4:23). You have no small, insignificant call on your life, rather you are called to change NATIONS!! Do not be surprised when you are quickened by Holy Spirit to fly out a whim, for you have been hand-picked to display signs, wonders and miracles in places you least expect. Yes YOU!! Loosen your grip on what you have so that you can hold tight to what God wants you to obtain. If we could only comprehend the blessing in obedience!!! Psalm 18:36 From my distress I called upon the LORD; The LORD answered me and set me in a “LARGE” PLACE!! (emphasis mine).
