As for me, I shall be satisfied: The Fix-it Shop-Filling Station

What will cause you to be satisfied?  A raise?  A new job?  Admiration or respect of your peers?

A bigger house,  a new car, a different significant other?

Not one or all of these things will satisfy.  None of these things will change who or what we are inside.

the word of the Lord was precious in those days; – The Fix-it Shop-Filling Station

“the word of the Lord was precious in those days; there was no open vision.”

This is in the time of Samuel, a young boy, dedicated to the Lords service by his praying mother.  He was taught the ways of the Lord by the High Priest  Eli. 

Like many people in the Bible, Eli, just appears in his office, there is no record of how this man, a Levite, a priest attained the office of high priest.

He wasn’t particularly Spiritual, he thought Hannah, the mother of Samuel was drunk, as she was struggling with the Lord, praying for a son.

He  allowed his two sons to mock the priesthood,  taking the best for themselves, rather than dedicating it to the Lord.

In this atmosphere we find Samuel.

” Samuel did not yet know the Lord, neither was the word of the Lord yet revealed unto him.”

He was preforming the duties of a true priest of God.
Humble,  obedient, reliable, teachable and we find the Lord, revealing Himself.

” Speak, Lord; for thy servant heareth. ”

The Lord can bring life, to the dead. 

When we begin to humbly, obediently, reliably,  serve the Lord, with an open heart, mind and spirit, He will speak,  guide, direct our paths.

He will make our paths straight.

I believe the Lord has always had a remnant, a people who have loved Him, even in the times, like today, when it seems He  is far away, quiet, even silent, leaving us to  mock His way, ignore His principles, precepts, laws.

In every Denomination,  there are those who want to bring God up to date, enlighten Him to todays standards of wisdom and understanding.

Unfortunately many in His Church agree.

They tickle the ears,

“Your OK, God will forgive, He will reward you in your bad behavior.” 

They do not understand the concept of repentance, turning from our wickedness to righteousness.

Don’t expect to hear the Lords voice when you are not living a righteous, holy life.  “Be ye holy as He is holy.” 

The Lord can and will forgive the worst of offenses, when we turn to Him.

image

Acknowledge His Majesty, Worship Him in Spirit and Truth, Walk in the light, power and the love of the Lord.

” all Israel from Dan even to Beersheba knew that Samuel was established to be a prophet of the Lord.”

In obedience to the Lord, the Lord will lift you higher:

” That they may see, and know, and consider, and understand together, that the hand of the Lord hath done this, and the Holy One of Israel hath created it.”

image

Lord, help us to Walk in You. Tô love and obey.  ” the word of the Lord was precious in those days; there was no open vision.”  Lord, help us to hear, to see and understand Your  calling on our lives.

The Truth of the Matter : The Fix-it Shop-Filling Station

The Truth of the Matter is,  people no longer accept truth.  The Word is Truth.  How many do you know who don’t accept Jesus as Lord and Savior?   They say;  “That’s your truth, Not My Truth.”

“Don’t you force your truth on me, the sky is not  blue, grass isn’t green, up is down and wrong is right.”

image

It  is hard to convince people of the Truth of the Gospel,  without the Power of the Holy Spirit to accomplish His will.

Too often we accept the Gifts of the Spirit of Teaching and Ministering, because they are easy, we just share what we have learned from the Bible and other books.

It is quite easy to impress low information Christians. They have accepted the Truth of the Gospel,  they are hungry for Righteousness,  they have experienced  some of its Cleansing Power, the Blood of Jesus covers a multitude of sin.

They understand the Freedom the Truth imparts.

image

How do we reach the unbelieving?

That is our real calling.   The man that was called Legion,  was sent to tell all, what He knew.  All He knew was the Power of the Lord to make him clean, free and Righteous in Gods eyes.

No theological degree, no license to marry and bury, just Revelation Knowledge.

Accept the Bible as Truth,  ask Jesus to Reveal to you the Power and Love of the Holy Spirit.  Ask him to make you a vessel He can use.

READ THE WORD, ASK, SEEK, KNOCK.

The Lord will give you the Gifts of the Spirit that you will use for His Glory.  

I firmly believe,  we do not see a lot of Signs and wonders,  miracles  following;  because we cannot be relied upon to Give Him the Glory.

That is the problem in my heart and I wonder about all who Love and believe, do you think the Lord had an experation date on the Gifts or have we just left them on the shelve because our word is so powerful.

We haven’t really entered the Holy of Holies,  haven’t really Submitted ourselves to God,  Humbled ourselves, so we might be lifted up, used in a mighty way, becoming the Hands of the Lord, to heal the sick, lame, brokenhearted, those blind to the truth deaf to the Wisdom of God.

Saints, we must push into the Higher Calling, the World needs the Truth of God.

Lord, help us to share Your Truth,  by the Power and Leading of Your Holy Spirit. Please help us to become useful vessels of Your Love.

Is the Holy Spirit? – 8 – The Fix-it Shop-Filling Station

Matthew 11:29-30
” Take my yoke upon you, and learn of me; for I am meek and lowly in heart: and ye shall find rest unto your souls. For my yoke is easy, and my burden is light.”

When we learn to take up His yoke, it will be impossible to be behind or ahead of Him.  We have to Walk beside Him, where He would have us go.

We would be touching the lives as He wills.  If we become proficient in understanding His will, we would Walk in the Power of His Love.

We would learn to Walk in the Spirit, we would find ourselves in the Holy of Holies as the Lord uses us to complete His will.

His yoke is easy, burden light, we find rest unto our souls.  How often are we restless, nervous uptight, worried, concerned.

image

Learn to rest in Him, ask Him to give you a heart after His, to make you into a vessel He can use.  Mold and make us Lord, guide and direct us, protect us from ourselves and the evil one.

Fastband pray, push yourself into the Holy of Holies, receive the Anointing because of your persistence.

He will not give a stone, when we ask and need wheat.
Every good gift comes down from the Lord above.
Ask and you shall receive.   The Lord wants you beside Him, Walking with Him, doing snd seeing His Grace and Mercy,  Power and Might.

Only believe.

Lord, I believe, help my unbelief.

Is the Holy Spirit? – 7 – The Fix-it Shop-Filling Station

Is the Holy Spirit :
*  Guiding you?
*  Directing you?
*  Walking with you?
How can you tell?  Do you recognize His voice?
Abram was told by  the  Lord to: “Walk before me and be ye perfect.”

Moses: “Walked in the Ways of The Lord.
David:  ” walked before me.”

image

We have quite a bit of information of Davids walk:

” David thy father walked, in integrity of heart, and in uprightness, to do according to all that I have commanded thee, and wilt keep my statutes and my judgments:”

“the way of David his father, and turned not aside to the right hand or to the left.”

” if thou wilt walk before me, as David thy father walked, ”

” the Lord was with Jehoshaphat, because he walked in the first ways of his father David, ”

” he did that which was right in the sight of the Lord, and walked in the ways of David his father, and declined neither to the right hand, nor to the left.”

David was a man after Gods own heart, yet he walked before, or in uprightness and integrity of heart to do all The Lord commanded.

We have a different calling:

” walk in the steps of  faith, walk in newness of life, Walk in the Spirit, walk in love, Walk in wisdom, walk in the light, walk in truth.

This is our New Testament  calling.  We are no longer walking before or in the ways of.

image

We are now called to:

Matthew 11:28-30
King James Version (KJV)
“Come unto me, all ye that labour and are heavy laden, and I will give you rest.

Take my yoke upon you, and learn of me; for I am meek and lowly in heart: and ye shall find rest unto your souls.
For my yoke is easy, and my burden is light.”

Have you learned to walk in His yoke?  That means to walk with Him like Enoch,  Noah,  Levi…not before, in the ways of, but beside, in harmony with, in rest.

In the peace that passes understanding, in joy unspeakable and full of glory.  In the Power of the Holy Spirit, healing all that are afflicted.  Causing the blind to see, the lame to walk, the deaf to hear.

Comforting the brokenhearted.

Lord help us to walk with You,  to hear and understand Your direction.
