Spreading the love of Jesus...the Cowboy Way!

    WAITING ON THE LORD

 

ISIAH 40-31-BUT THEY THAT WAIT UPON THE LORD SHALL RENEW THEIR STRENGTH;THEY SHALL RUN, AND NOT BE WEARY; AND THEY SHALL WALK AND NOT FAINT.

WE AS FLESHLY BEINGS, FIND IT HARD TO GIVE UP  CONTROL TO GOD--THE SPIRT!!

I FIND THIS IS VERY HARD TO DO, AS I HAVE BEEN A WIDOW, FOR ABOUT 18 YEARS, AND HAVE HAD TO MAKE ALL THE DECISIONS.

GOD PUTS US IN A PLACE--WHERE WE HAVE TO LAY DOWN  CONTROL, AND SUBMIT TO THE HUSBAND INSIDE, AND IF WE DON’T THEN HE JUST BACKS UP, AND SAYS WELL AS LONG AS YOU ARE IN THE WAY, I CAN’T DO ANY THING, NOW IF YOU WILL SUBMIT TO MY SPIRIT, AND STOP TRYING TO DO EVERYTHING YOUR SELF, THEN I CAN DO WHAT HAS TO BE DONE, AND BRING TO PASS WHAT YOU HAVE PRAYED FOR, BUT AS LONG AS YOU ARE IN THE WAY, TRYING TO DO THESE THINGS, THEN YOU ARE A HINDERANCE OF WHAT I’M TRYING TO DO. 

WHEN WE COME TO THE PLACE WHERE WE CAN LAY THINGS DOWN, AND SAY LORD, HERE IT IS, I CAN’T DO IT, THEN HE WILL BRING IT TO PASS.  THIS IS THE HARDEST THING , I HAVE EVER HAD TO GO THRU.  I BELIEVE THAT ALL OF GOD’S CHILDREN ARE THIS WAY, BUT WE HAVE GOT TO SURRENDER TO HIS SPIRIT, AND REST IN GOD.  IF WE CAN LEARN TO SUBMIT, AND TURN EVERYTHING OVER TO HIM, THEN THERE WILL BE TOTAL PEACE, AND THIS IS WHAT WE ARE TRYING TO ATTAIN TO.

GOD WILL GIVE US THE DESIRES OF OUR HEARTS, BUT WE HAVE TO LOSE THE FEARS, AND DOUBTS, THAT WE CARRY AROUND EVERY DAY OF OUR LIFE.  DO WE REALLY TRUST HIM?  NOT ALL THE WAY, TO SAY TO THE LORD.  “LORD I TURN THESE PROBLEMS OVER TO YOU, I CAN’T CARRY THESE BURDENS ANY LONGER”  HAVE WE SAID THIS TO HIM?

WAIT--WHAT DOES THIS MEAN?  DO NOTHING, EXPECTING SOMETHING TO HAPPEN: 

HAVE WE BEEN ABLE TO DO THIS?  LET’S BE HONEST--THIS IS THE HARDEST THING TO DO, IS TO WAIT FOR SOMEONE TO COME TO YOUR RESCUE.  GOD IS TEACHING ME, THAT I HAVE NO OTHER WAY OUT-HE HAS PUT ME IN A PLACE, THAT I EITHER TRUST HIM, OR IT WANT BE DONE!  HE’S PUTTING A STOP SIGN AT MY DOOR, AND SAYING--“JUST STAND BACK, AND SEE THE SALVATION OF THE LORD”!!  IF WE CAN LEARN , TO LET GO, AND LET GOD, OUR LIVES WOULD BE FILLED WITH LOVE, JOY, AND PEACE.  WE HAVE TO RECOGNIZE THE POWER THAT IS WITHIN US.  “JESUS IS SAYIN--HAVE AI BEEN WITH YOU, SUCH A LONG TIME, AND YET YOU HAVE NOT KNOWN ME?  THIS IS PART OF KNOWING HIM, NOT ABOUT HIM, THERE IS A DIFFERENCE.  KNOWING HIM, IS HAVING A PLACE AS A HUSBAND, AND A WIFE SHARE, AND WE ARE THE BRIDE OF CHRIST, AND OUR HUSBAND IS WILLING, AND ABLE TO GIVE US ALL THINGS, WHATSOEVER WE SHALL ASK-------------BELIEVING--THIS IS THE KEY, THAT UNLOCKS THE VERY HEART OF GOD.

RENEW: REPLACE SOMETHING WORN, BROKEN, OR NO LONGER SUITABLE FOR USE.

WHAT A DEFINATION:  ARE YOU WORN OUT, BECAUSE YOU ARE IN GOD’S WAY?  ARE YOU BROKEN, BECAUSE YOU ARE BEING CHASTIZED, BY THE SPIRIT? WE CAN BE SO IGNORANT TO THE WAYS OF GOD, UNTILL WE ARE NO USE TO HIM, NOR OUR FELLOW MAN.  I’M SPEAKING TO ALL OF US--ME INCLUDED.  DO WE KNOW HIM?  NOT LIKE WE NEED TOO.  THIS IS FOR SURE!!  WE KNOW ABOUT HIM, BUT OUR RELATIONSHIP, IS SO FAR BELOW WHAT WE CAN HAVE, IF WE WILL SUBMIT OUR WAYS TO HIM.  SAINTS OF GOD--UNTILL WE LEARN TO DEPEND ON HIM--THEN WE WILL CONTINUE TO BE IN HELL (A PLACE OF TORMENT).  WHEN WE TRUST HIM--WE HAVE PEACE.

RUN-

HAVE YOU RUN IN GOD LATELY?  WALK- THIS IS NOT TALKING ABOUT WALKING FOR EXERCISE, BUT YOUR WALK OF OBEDIENCE TO THE MASTER, THE KING, OF KINGS, THE ALPHA, AND OMEGA, THE PRINCE OF PEACE, THE MIGHT GOD, THE EVERLASTING FATHER.  HE IS EVERYTHING, AND HIS NAME IS JESUS. 

WEARY

- BEING WEARY IS A PLACE OF DEFEAT, NOT KNOWING WHAT TO DO, OR WHICH WAY TO BEGIN--FAINT-UNLESS WE COME TO THE KNOWING OF CHRIST, AND WHAT HE CAN, AND WILL DO--WE WILL FAINT, AS THE TRIALS WILL GET HOTTER, AND HOTTER. 

ALL THIS POWER DWELLS INSIDE OF US--WAITING TO BE USED--WHEN WE HAVE EYES TO SEE, AND EARS TO HEAR, WHAT THE SPIRIT IS SAYING TO THE CHURCHES(US)!!  LET CHRIST LIFT YOU UP, FROM YOUR DISPAIR.     LOVE-NELL
