You know God is speaking when you begin to hear the same recurring theme over and over. For me, this morning, it has come via TV, book, & Word of God. I was watching Pastor Jentezen Franklin last night and he was speaking about the fact that God is motion sensitive. He used an illustration of the CLAPPER that can turn the lights on or off when you clap your hands. It was simplistic yet a powerful revelation. This morning my devotional’s title, by Pastor Stephen Hill, was “I will if you will”. It talked about how God is looking for us to initiate the conversation or move into what we believe to be Him. There are over 8,000 promises in the Word and most of them are conditional. They are based on what we do or don’t do, say or don’t say, believe or don’t believe and so on.
The God DNA inside of us is built to take dominion. That means we instigate or provoke what we desire to do or see take place. I was reminded of the 3rd law of SIR ISSAC NEWTON’s (despite him being a hereitc) that also proves true in the spirit. ” For every action, there is an equal and opposite REACTION”. Typically, we allow it to flow in reverse. Something happens, then we REACT. As kingdom citizens, we are to cause change, not be overpowered by reacting to the dominating opposition of our soul. There is a statistic thrown out every now and then that states that we only use a portion of our brain and that there is limitless potential that we have yet to tap in to. I believe it is the same way concerning our authority and ability to move and live in Christ. Wouldn’t it be a shame to know that we only used 20% of what God has given us?
Psalm 37:23, in the amplified version, reads this way….. “The steps of a [good] man are directed and established by the Lord when He delights in his way [and He busies Himself with his every step].” If you notice the capitalization on HE, it says HE busies HIMSELF with his every step! WOW! That means God is busying Himself as we began to move and live in Him! Don’t have a “wait for the check in the mail” mentality. God is on the sidelines watching us to see how He can facilitate our next step! He loves us. When we draw close, He draws closer. When we knock, ask and seek, He is on the other side waiting. Invite the Lord’s assistance and get MOVING.
