This morning I realize, apparently the life that we live is often without the voice and direction of God. We have been ‘trapped’ in the routine of ‘making ends meet’, and we force God to accept our condition then ask for His help so that He is with us.
That’s the fact of life that we are living. No wonder that finally we seldom see the demonstration and the manifestation of God’s power in everyday life. We are shackled by the routines and ask God to enter into the ‘box’ of our lives (our routines). In fact we are the ones who should enter God’s world. In short, we always limit our time to sit and hear God speaks to us completely as a direction in our lives.
I also realize, it turns out there are a lot of decisions that we have made do not come from the voice of God but from the pressure, demand of life, world pattern, surrounding culture and trend as well as from people’s saying. This is a terrible condition of life. Because without even realizing it, we even live the same kind of life with other humans do who don’t trust in God. And we just flow according to the world pattern that has been installed in every domain of life. We are forced to follow without hearing God’s voice. We are continuously being led to walk in the routines and the wheel of life.
Therefore, we need the TRUTH that sets us free from all those things so we can step in the Father’s will freely. We must in the God’s world. There is one TRUTH that Holy Spirit reminded me this morning: “God bless people not their work”.
Holy Spirit directly took me to see Psalms 1:
Psalms 1: 1-6 (NKJV) Blessed is the man Who walks not in the counsel of the ungodly, Nor stands in the path of sinners, Nor sits in the seat of the scornful; But his delight is in the law of the Lord, And in His law he meditates day and night. He shall be like a tree Planted by the rivers of water, That brings forth its fruit in its season, Whose leaf also shall not wither; And whatever he does shall prosper. The ungodly are not so, But are like the chaff which the wind drives away. Therefore the ungodly shall not stand in the judgment, Nor sinners in the congregation of the righteous. For the Lord knows the way of the righteous, But the way of the ungodly shall perish.
Holy Spirit gave me a direction: “Make sure to always live in the truth of the Word and make the meditation of God’s Word as a priority in your daily life. Either when in an activity or a work or even when resting. Your life must be controlled by the Word. Keep doing the lifestyle of meditating the Word in special times every hour. That’s a divine pattern (not a man-made pattern) that I have set for you so that when you are doing an activity each day on earth, at the same time you are in My world. That’s the world of wonders and full of divinity. When you are in My world, you will hear Me diligently and surely impact in the natural world (not with your own strength). Whatever you do (without sweating), God will make it to prosper. This will be the point of distinction. That’s the bright side. Your life will be a solution to many!! The wicked will weaken, those who trust in their own strength will be destroyed, but you will remain because you are in My Word. God’s light shines upon you!”
