God woke me up a 5:30 this morning as He does on occasion to have me pray for something, now right before I went to be I prayed Lord show me how to obey you more. So as I’m struggling to keep my eyes open He says to me, first you must be willing to obey. Ok Lord I’m willing. As I am waking up I hear Jeremiah 67, as i’m still waking up rubbing my eyes so they adjust to the light I turn to Jeremiah and realize there is no chapter 67. As soon as I realize it God says to me it is also a risk to obey me, you will be wrong sometimes. Then I heard Ezekiel 23 so I go there and the whole chapter is about two sisters who have been whores since they were young. (they are metaphors) They are whores and they give themselves to whatever they want, one of them does it and it gets her killed and then the other sister goes out and does it even more. Even goes to the length of going out of her way to send messengers to far away lands to bring back men for her bed. (go read it if you want the full story) in the end God casts judgement on her, then The Lord spoke to me again and said sometimes it’s a burden to obey me, sometimes it’s tough. Then I heard Romans 8. I know it’s a very famous chapter but I’m confessing I don’t know it that well. So I turn there and it’s about GRACE! It’s about how Jesus was willing, how He took the risk, and how He took the burden of all the worlds sin so God wouldn’t have to cast judgement on us. He made it possible to live and have the pleasure of obeying a good God! Jesus made it possible to go from judgement to freedom. To go from being a lustful person of the flesh like we all are sometimes, to walking in grace and extending God’s Kingdom! Jesus showed us the way to obey, He gave us grace and mercy, I think we owe him for that. Maybe the only way you know right now is how to pray a simple prayer, I tell you God will honor that. Keep praying that simple prayer. Maybe you are being called higher, I challenge you to step into it. It will be full of the Amazing Presence of God but it cones at a price. You will have to take risks and be wrong. That’s where I’m at, I believe I’m being called to step out more, to not have the mentality of, oh I’ll do that later but to go for it and expand. Lord seal this word in my heart! Thank you for speaking to me! Thank you for Your Son, who obeyed you perfectly! Thank you for your grace, You are amazing!
