What is the first thing you do when you have a problem you cannot solve on your own?
You most likely will want to get some advice from a trusted person, right? Is that what the apostle Paul did? No, he never consulted anyone except his heavenly Father. Galatians 1:15-17 says, “But when God, who set me apart from my mother’s womb and called me by his grace… my immediate response was not to consult any human being.”
Paul ambitiously kept his Master’s perspective in front; it did not matter what anyone thought or conveyed. Like a well-trained driver not taking his eyes off the road, Paul did not waver to the right or the left–his Father’s will for Him was the only course to drive.
What is your ambition? Maybe it is to please people, to win souls, build a big church or have a revival? Have you consulted Him first before doing anything? If so…then He very much approves of you.
Any ambition that is outside of Him is a futility and you are wasting your time and gifting in restless strain to be approved by Him.
Do you and God have secrets together that no one knows about? If so, that makes it real easy for you to go to Him when you are in a pinch and have no idea as to what your next step should be. Genesis 24:27 says, “…I being in the way the Lord led me…”
When you consult Him first and only want what He wants, you will be accepted by Him in every circumstance. He will accommodate you, clothe you and lead you every step of the way, just like the geese below follow the one who loves, leads and feeds them. Likewise, you will be protected and cared for.
I hear Jesus say, “Do not look to the right or the left, but look at Me, your Father, your Provider and your Lover. I am the One Who first loved you and I am the One Who will love you to the end. I know your needs more than you do. I love you.”
A word to my Polish friends,
I am receiving many subscriptions to my blog from my Polish friends. The last count is 100 Polish people who have subscribed to my brushedbygod blog. Would some of you be so kind as to respond to this blog and tell me how you heard about me? I have visited many countries including Romania to do Prophetic Art. May be some of you would like me to come to your country some day to do prophetic art in your church. Pleas let me know how you came to my blog as well as how this blog helps you in any way.
