This morning I woke up at about 4. am. And I really felt that the Lord wanted to speak to me about something. Firstly I had not written a PR in a very long time. And I realized that it was as a direct result of not being as close to my HH as I desperately needed to be. And the word He gave me was “Encumbrances”. That lead me to re-read Chapter 12 “Every Encumbrance” again in the ” Living the Abundant Life.
I realized the reason I was being robbed of intimacy with the Lord was because I had become involved in the lives of others and their problems and made it mine. Daily discussions were turning my life into chaos. I was surprised that after everything I was taught I still allowed myself to be entangled. I also found myself becoming resentful of certain people around me because they were not acting in a certain way.
Well neither was I, where was the reflection of Him as My Heavenly Husband? I desperately needed to in a sense ‘remarry” my Heavenly Husband because I had for a while felt like I was “divorced” from Him! So today I got remarried to Him and declare that He is all that I want, all that I need and all that I live for…
Hebrews 12 New International Version (NIV)
12 Therefore, since we are surrounded by such a great cloud of witnesses, let us throw off everything that hinders and the sin that so easily entangles. And let us run with perseverance the race marked out for us, 2 fixing our eyes on Jesus, the pioneer and perfecter of faith. For the joy set before him he endured the cross, scorning its shame, and sat down at the right hand of the throne of God. 3 Consider him who endured such opposition from sinners, so that you will not grow weary and lose heart.
My Heavenly Husband showed me that I can also speak to Him about the problems of others. It is not my burden to bear. That it was important for me to pray FOR them and NOT Talk about them! And enduring through faith in Him that just by acknowledging Him not even having to plead, He will make my path straight.
