The Simplicity of the Word - Part II
You may ask yourself, how will I know when my life has been emptied out enough for God’s Spirit to build and plant in me?. When you understand that you cannot do anything on your own, when you understand that the answer is not in you. When you recognize that God all-knowing, Omniscient (Jn. 5:30; Ezk. 37: 3; Gen. 41:16; cf. Prov. 3:5-6). This is the heart’s crowning glory of humility that God seeks in the earth realm (2 Chron 16:9).
“Your life is like the waterpots mentioned in John at the wedding in Cana of Galilee. You must take the time to fill your life with the Word for it wide and deep made to hold treasures (2 Cor. 4:7). Your life must stay full to the brim for that is where the overflow begins (Jn. 2:1-10). It enables and empowers you to flow with my Spirit. Once you fill your life up with waters (the water of the Word and Spirit) and as you obey it, things convert (petitions and prayers are answered and needs are met). As you move in faith, for you will no longer struggle with fear – it has been driven out by the Word and cleared from your field (heart), you will see that the water of the Word in you turns to wine to serve others by my Spirit (Zech. 4:6; Acts 17:28; Philip 2:13, Heb. 13:21). So be diligent and stay diligent to clear your field, pluck up the rocks, thorns, thistles, boulders of doubt, fear, and unbelief of past experiences and failures. But know that I’m right behind you to build you up, and plant you in the kingdom for His glory and in this world for His name’s sake. Let not your hands be slack, and do not be afraid for I am with you.”
Rejoice for it is your time to celebrate the reign of His Lordship, and the rain of His righteousness in you (Hos. 10:12; Is. 58:8).
