Love you all, praying for you!
Have you ever gone back for seconds? God reminding me of some things… Some of the greatest PRISMs ever – have been when I came back to it. When I came back for seconds… After I’ve already done PRISM today – or partially… and I come back later – even before bed – to finish – to get the rest of what He has for me – or just to find out if He has any more. Actually, you can never do PRISM partially… You do PRISM or not. Remember – PRISM is 5 Things you can do in God’s Word every day – not that you have to do in God’s Word every day. The devil wants to make it religion – when it’s relationship. All you did was read the Word – no s.o.a.p. – no M: Meditate on the Word – no Insight from the Word – (your Proverbs Chapter for today). But you still did PRISM today… any one of the five. It’s relationship, not religion. When we do PiVAT before dinner – God never blocks out ever single hour of the 24-hour day. At least He has never had me write down a new assignment in every single hour. My tendency can be filling a few extra things in the timeslots – which are really my PIVAT Maybe list trying to creep in. PiVAT is only what He told you to do, only when He told you to do it, and only what He has revealed so far. Sometimes it’s two hour blocks, or an afternoon block, or the evening open… That doesn’t mean, I get to regain control (my body is still a living sacrifice – that’s a time decision thing) It just means that God hasn’t chosen to reveal yet – (in my PiVAT before dinner – getting His plan for me for tomorrow) every last thing that He will have me do – the entire day – or tomorrow evening after work. But He will reveal it – when it’s time. It just reminds me – if He doesn’t fill in everything during PiVAT before dinner – that I need to keep listening throughout the day – and be open of heart.
I’m really amazed at how many times – coming back to PRISM later in that day – (even extra - beyond the scheduled and completed PRISM time – that He told me to do) that He draws me back again – because He has next level stuff for me. Sometimes it’s next level revelation – about who He is or what He wants me to do – further understanding as to How He wants me to do it… (Like David – getting in writing from the hand of the LORD upon me – all the details of the plan.) Every Tuesday night – Kelsey has family dinner at our house for the Revive Community family. It’s part of that vision that God revealed “Kingdom looks like family.” She’s done it for months now, and often here is in excess of 50-60 people for dinner. One of my favorite young men, will always ask… “Has everyone gotten a chance to eat yet?” This is code for – Can I have seconds? Of course! There’s plenty! That’s just like God – with Him there is always plenty. Jesus said – “Man doesn’t live by bread alone but by every word that proceeds from the mouth of God.” He has words of encouragement for you, words of affirmation, words of revelation, knowledge and direction for you – that you can live on! And live in! and follow - that will establish you in success and the good that He has for you. Some of the best meals He’ll ever give you – in the Spirit and in the understanding – are when you come back for Seconds. Choosing His Presence and His Word – above other things you could do. Even in the extra – unscheduled time – where you choose Him – check with Him first. Let Him lead you – even when coming back for seconds… Ask Him first – and if there is something else that He told you to do, or you need to do first… He’ll tell you. But if you’re still hungry, and you come back for seconds… He’ll surprise you. More Presence and more PRISM is way better than other time consumers we call leisure or rest. I can accurately say, I’ve never come back for PRISM ‘seconds’ – ever – and regretted the time spent. Praying for you that PiVAT before dinner – will be your never miss time to get his plan for you for tomorrow. It’s way better than yours, it’s critical to walk in the good He has for you, and He will tell you when tomorrow that He wants you to set time aside with Him in His WORD. Praying that you will do it at the time He reveals – so that He can reveal His heart for you through your PRISM time with Him, the truth and life and light – that will establish you in wisdom, and transform your mind into the mind of Christ. Praying that your Daily Call – will become that consistent obedience of Hebrews 3:13 in your life that makes overcoming the enemy a daily habit! And praying that your hunger for Him over other stuff - will grow – so that when you come back for seconds – instead of other things you could do – that you will find the increase that He has for you. The good that He has stored up for you – is unlimited. The more you seek Him, the more you will find Him. The extra He has – for those who come back – will surprise you!
