No matter how long you walk with the Lord. There is still a deeper need for a deeper relationship with Christ. You may be on track in your spiritual relationship with Jesus. But His ways are so incredibly, immensely, perfectly beyond ours. That there must be a continual subjecting of our mind and thoughts to his higher, truer, wiser thoughts.
This is not a lack of self-confidence. This is just a deep & inner knowing that God really does move by His Spirit. And His Direction flows from His counsel and Rhema (living) knowledge. If you think that you know the ongoing plan of God, without deeply subjecting your current thoughts to him. Then you are certainly off track.
He is the Commander and Chief and the knowledge of our entire Earthly Journey belongs to Him. It is not that He withholds it from us. It’s just that we can only take it, a phase or a chapter, sometimes only a page, at a time. God will stretch us beyond anything we can imagine. We can reach our very highest and still be reaching. That’s why earnestness and ongoing seeking, are a part of the Masters plan.
But it can never be a pompous, prideful, egotistical seeking. That is why we must want to take every honor bestowed upon us bring it to Him in gratitude. And take each of our crowns and lay them as gifts at His feet. Because every good gift comes from Him, anyway. And the only way we can continually reach to be more of what He wants us to be, is to be more in touch with him. And we can only reach the spiritual highest, through His spiritual anointing and guiding.
It’s like a dynamic atomic explosion of revelation, of the realness of God, on the inside of us! We cannot see all that the Master wants us to see, except, we become subject and open to this Living Well-Spring. The Kingdom of God is not a place. The kingdom of God is a residential walking, in a Godly spiritual realness.
In this high and holy Highway of seeking God’s more perfect will; God helps us each day to question any selfish thought and offer every thought in obedience to Him. Yet in this walk, He enables us to do this in abundant life; with the belief and Earnest faith that God will enable us to do exceedingly abundantly above all that we can ask or think. To qualify, We just need a deep inward realization that we cannot do it without Him.
In that condition, we must have an unreserved habit of deciding to continually & willingly submit our ways to His ways. Wanting His will and not our own. And this is easy to say. But rarely easy to do. Nonetheless, this is the Walk of Holiness and sanctification. Oops, …. there’s a spiritual word. What it really means is: to be set apart and completely decided, when it comes to belonging to Jesus. And that is what I want to be.
