I been reading and quoting His words to me in 1986 from that version until now as He, my Father sent me back to the Living Bible version.
The amplification of those words open my eyes to see more what the Father/Creator meant with the shorter version that hit me like lightening. Amplified Quote,
If you return [and give up this mistaken tone of distrust and despair], then I will give you again a settled place of quiet and safety, and you will be My minister; and if you separate the precious from the vile [cleansing your own heart from unworthy and unwarranted suspicions concerning the Almighty’s faithfulness], you shall be My mouthpiece.
[But do not yield to them.] Let them return to you–not you to [the people].
This amplification came to me at the exact time when Father gave me the promised settled place of quiet and safety, and?
I became His minister or ministering to Him my complete attention and devotion rather than worrying about setting up a ministry to minister to people, and?
At that time, the process began to separate the precious from the vile, cleansing my own heart from unworthy and unwarranted suspicions concerning His faithfulness.
Next? As the process to separate the precious from the vile—His nature from my nature, I became His mouthpiece to deliver the message in the journal of my life. On to Isaiah 30.
Isaiah 30:1-33 TLB
Woe to my rebellious children, says the Master; you ask advice from everyone but Me and decide to do what I don’t want you to do. You yoke yourselves with unbelievers, thus piling up your sins.
For without consulting Me you have gone down to Egypt to find aid and have put your trust in Pharaoh for his protection.
But in trusting Pharaoh, you will be disappointed, humiliated and disgraced, for he can’t deliver on his promises to save you.
