It takes grace to let another fail and then not to criticize. That is what I am asking you to do. People learn from mistakes and failure, both big and small. You have changed your attitude so that you can help and support him without taking over. I am working on both of you.
What will the future bring for you? It will come with blessings and challenges. I can use you to help others. I can draw you nearer to Me. You will have limitations to overcome, but then your success will come from Me and not yourself. I delight in using weak vessels so that My glory shines ever brighter.
Life or death. Some people must face these extremes before they respond to Me. Moses made the Israelites choose between the two – follow Me and live or turn away die in their sinfulness. You must deny your fleshly demands to live for Me, following Me in My righteousness and holiness. Each day, many times a day, this choice is before us. It is easier to decide this choice once and for all. It is called surrender.
The prisoner loses all rights. The slave has been bought with only a small hope for a gracious master. We have a very gracious Master, who loves us. We serve willingly.
Put your hope in Me. I will be your future and present help. I will see you through the storm.
Come before Me as an offering. You are reading about the various offerings. They were foreshadows of the real offering of My Son. How much blood was shed to try to erase the sins of men. Life is in the blood. What do you have to offer but your life in obedient service to My Word and My Spirit? What is love but to sacrificially serve another? Dying to self so that the other is served.
You are not done. Be observant, a student of people, with My Spirit advising.
Do you want that kind of ministry, where you must be dependent on My Spirit for your words and revelation and power? Is your faith strong enough to handle that pressure and dependence? Should that be normal for you? You know My voice, is that enough? There is a price to pay. You have pride and want to be noticed. Could you deal with failure and criticism? Could you deal with worship (praise that is misdirected at you instead of Me)? No, you couldn’t right now and you know this.
Be at peace. Just be careful with your words. You are safe. Keep at good attitude. Don’t let negative comments sour you. People always complain. You asked for constructive comments.
Now is the time to look to the future. Let your mind dwell on the things above, on My kingdom work. I am doing marvelous things in the hearts of men.
