Prophetic dream: I step into an elevator, where a gray-haired, tired looking couple are standing. The elevator keeps going up and down, I look at the control panel and no floor numbers are lit. I state to the couple, “you’re cut off!” and choose a floor number.
This reminds me of ‘taking a ride’ spiritually and going after God’s gifts, but not submitting to Him the Person.
“For evildoers shall be cut off; but those who wait on the Lord, they shall inherit the earth.” Psalm 37:9
May 30th, Oswald Chambers:
“Suppose God tells you to do something that is an enormous test of your common sense, totally going against it. What will you do? … Again and again you will come right up to what Jesus wants, but every time you will turn back at the true point of testing, until you are determined to abandon yourself to God in total surrender.”
Proverbs 16:9, “A man’s heart devises his way: but the LORD directs his steps.”
Psalm 37:23, “The steps of a good man are ordered by the LORD: and he delights in His way.”
Isaiah 30:21, “And thine ears shall hear a word behind thee, saying, This is the way, walk ye in it, when ye turn to the right hand, and when ye turn to the left.”
Luke 9:23, “And He said to all, “If anyone would come after Me, let him deny himself and take up his cross daily and follow Me.”
John 16:13, “Howbeit when He, the Spirit of truth, is come, He will guide you into all truth: for He shall not speak of Himself; but whatsoever He shall hear, that shall He speak: and He will show you things to come.”
Literally there was no agenda. Whatever God wants or wherever God sent me to – that’s the plan. No questions asked, fine with it. No answers for your friends’ questions either.
Oswald Chambers, My Utmost for His Highest, March 13, “Beware of talking about abandonment if you know nothing about it, and you will never know anything about it until you have realized that John 3:16 means that God gave Himself absolutely. In our abandonment we give ourselves over to God just as God gave Himself for us, without any calculation. ”
