    VERSE OF THE DAY - Luke 6:40


    Luke 6:40 (Amplified Bible)
    40 A pupil is not superior to his teacher, but everyone [when he is] completely trained (readjusted, restored, set to rights, and perfected) will be like his teacher.
    This is a process that does not happen overnight. It is a process that takes place over time, and that time is determined much by our readiness of mind, heart and will. If we are willing and obedient, we will eat of the fat of the land. But this land of our lives will not be taken in a short time but little by little will the land of our lives be taken and come under the obedience of the Spirit of God as He continues to purge us from our old ways and lead us to His ways and His paths. This is where we all learn to WAIT ON THE LORD. This "waiting on the Lord" is the hardest job that will ever be required of any believer in their walk with God but it is the most rewarding of all.

    Are you willing AND obedient? Time will tell. Commit your ways to the Lord and He will direct your paths.

    For those who are unwilling to wait on the Lord, I strongly urge you to not do as in the Rebellion of Korah where he did not wait for the approval of God but sought to usurp the authority of God with his own authority. The end result for him and those who followed him is not the result he or his fellows anticipated. Although God is very patient with man, His patience runs very thin when we seek our own way above His way and seek to persuade others to follow our lead and in so doing, contrast with His ways. For Korah, his two friends and 250 other priests, it cost them their lives.

    No man or woman should rush into service or ministry until they have received the APPROVAL FROM THE FATHER. Once approved, the testing will begin. Once the testing is completed, the walk by the Spirit in ministry will begin. Jesus gave us the example by waiting for the full 30 years and then received His approval from the Father at the waters of baptism. Then the testing began for Him in the wilderness and not until this was completed did He begin His ministry. For the testing in the wilderness accomplishes two important things. It is the testing in the wilderness where we are tried and tested to see whether we will obey the Lord or not and learn that we do not live by bread alone but by every word that proceeds from the mouth of the Father.

    Another thought about the reason for waiting on The Lord...

    Since the fall of man in the garden, man has determined for himself his actions based upon what he considered good or evil and left God out of his decision making. Waiting on God is to refuse to make such determinations alone but to wait for God to decide what it is we should do.

    David, before he was king at Ziklag, could have determined to take action against the Amalekites for their burning of the city and taking the families of David and his men captive. No one would have faulted David as they all felt it was only right and just to do so but David had a different mind. He was a man after the heart of God and knew that he did not have all the facts nor did he feel he had the right to act on his own but submitted his judgment to the Father. No matter how right and just we may feel that we should take action in our lives when the "facts" scream out for immediate response, we should ALWAYS submit our decisions to God and wait for His word to us, whether to act or whether to wait.

    Soon after I received the Lord in 1976, I started receiving prophetic visions and warnings about the future of the church and the United States. I share my visions on my Hidden Manna websites and offer free of charge my two ebooks entitled “Hidden Manna” and “Hidden Manna 2”.
