Father, every word You speak to me gives me life and hope but, by the words spoken to me by my child, those same words make no impact on her or her siblings whatsoever! On the contrary, I only cause them pain and hurt when I herald those words to them. How can that be my Father?
As You answered Jeremiah You are answering me,
Truly your release, affliction, and strengthening will be for good purposes; surely Jeremiah, I will intercede for you with the enemy and I will cause the enemy to ask for your aid in the time of evil and in the time of affliction. [Jer. 21:1, 2; 37:3; 42:2; Rom. 8:28.]
We are assured and know that the Almighty a partner in their labor, all things work together and are fitting into a plan for good to and for those who love the Almighty and are called according to His design and purpose. End of quote.
My Words …
I see it my Father! Now I understand Your commandment to stay in this place and not to make any phone calls and to wait until You developed the circumstances. Am I following Your instructions? Am I approved by You?
My Master’s Response …
“Yes, My child, and all things are working together for your good and for the good of all of those who love Me, those who obey My commandments; only you must wait until My children come to grasp the truth about love.
My children are living on their understanding of love. They love Me according to their understanding of love.
- I know that they mean to love Me and yet, I must reject such love because they do not know that, the kind of love I require is obedience to My commands or instructions.
And I command them to lean not on their own understanding, but they refuse to obey Me. And they go on and on thinking that they are obeying My commandments when in reality they are not!
My children live in the futility of their fantasy about love. Such fantasy is an abomination unto Me and My children MUST give it up!
Therefore, in order to cause My children to give up this abomination, I must discipline them in the harshest way!
My discipline is harsh to them because they have not yet realized the true beauty of obedience.
