Love you all, praying for you.
God spoke to me recently. And it sounded a lot like my daughter - Jibby. Actually – she was talking, and God was speaking. I was about to eat lunch, but it was late and I changed my mind. I’ve got no time for lunch, I’ve got to get to the next thing. “Why aren’t you eating lunch?” (Jibby noticed my sudden change of direction). “I’m not hungry.” “You don’t eat when you’re hungry, you eat when it’s time to eat. That’s how you’re not ruled by your stomach.”
Mic drop. That’s all she said. And the silence left in the vacuum, was heavy with the weight of truth. Jibby is often like that – she doesn’t talk long, but what she says has weight. It only comes from time in His Presence. Wisdom is like that. It reminded me immediately of my PRISM from yesterday. Proverbs 18:4 The words of a man’s mouth are deep waters, but the fountain of wisdom is a bubbling brook. It’s life giving. Perspective changing, and the words aren’t many – but few. That’s all that wisdom needs. A few words – and immediate response. I ate lunch – gained strength – and then was quickly on to the next task God had assigned me to do today. The truth weighed so heavily, that God then transferred it. Truth is always transferable. God's principles and precepts apply across activities and topics. Honesty for example applies in school, at home, and at work. Different venue, same truth. As I pondered what God said through her, God reminded me... You don’t do things when you want to, you do things when God tells you, that's how you’re not ruled by your wants or desires or decisions, but by His wants, desires and decisions for you. And they are always good. That’s why PiVAT and PRISM are so important – They are daily training in setting aside your wants, and hearing from God. The One whose plans for you far exceed yours. They put your heart and mind in the framework of hearing and obeying, They give God the opportunity to speak His will into your life – every day. How else would you know His plans for you – so you can walk in them And your Daily Call – is how you overcome with your testimony (Hebrews 3:13) and how you get to hear God speak to you – using other people. Sometimes God sounds a lot like your Daily Call Partner.
It also challenged me – about circles. Who are your circle of friends? The ones with most access to you? They are the ones who influence you the most. Their heart, and mind, their attitude and values, their desires, and goals and ambitions and opinions – will affect you – because that’s what they talk about. They base their lives on God's truth, or man's ideas. "Show me your friends and I’ll show you your future."– Mark Ambrose. "You will become like the five people you spend the most time with." – Jim Rohn. The people you associate with will accelerate your future, or stunt it’s growth. You cannot rise above your circle. Like gravity, or surface tension of water, or crabs in a barrel – your friends will limit you – or carry you. That’s why it’s so important to have friends who are obeyers - who surrender time thoughts and money to His control. They live life at a whole 'nother level. Those who understand God has Good For Them, who understand in every decision of life, there’s God’s Way and man’s way, who understand that Love is Obey, and who fully submit time, thought and money decisions – to the God who loves them – and promises to lead them in the way they should go – the way chosen for them. Friends who have committed their life to God’s plans for them, not their own. Not saying to dump all your friends, invite them to do a Daily Call with you. God loves them as much as He loves you. PiVAT and PRISM will let God reveal His love and His good for them, just as He has for you. Their testimony will change them! Praying that you will never miss PiVAT, always come back to PRISM, and your Daily Call will be just the first testimony of many today that you overcome with! Praying that you would do what God wants you to do, not what you want to do, so you’re not controlled by your will or desires, but led by God’s will and His desires for you. They are so very good!
Love you all,
