In the beginning of the year, Feb 2nd to be exact, during worship at church he asked me to do a prophetic act. He really likes to speak to me during worship a lot, and I don’t mind it one single bit :). He told me to grab a white flag and go to the front(alter) and toss the flag down. I don’t carry flags, white or other wise, so since this was a prophetic act…. I used a kleenex..lol! I was obediant so I used what was available and I know God didn’t mind abit!:)
God is saying and has told me many many times that “I’m hearing NO NO NO! I want to hear Yes Yes Yes!! Stop telling me no and say yes! Give me everything. I want all of you”. I want to take you into the new. I have plans for you but your no will not get you there. In my yes there is a new thing and I will make you into a new vessel. A vessel of noble use. I new winskin to hold the new wine. If you would say yes so we can move forward into the new. A new thing for a new season. Your new sound for your new season.I will have my way will you surrender your all to me?”
What exactly are we surrendering? Well, our lordship over our life. If we call ourselves christian and the world can’t actually tell we are, then that’s a problem right? We’ve been so complacent over the years. Compromising and even lying to ourselves because we don’t want to stir things up. We would rather hurt God then those around us because we don’t want to hurt anyones feelings. We don’t want to be uncomfortable in any way in anything that’s involved in our life. Why? because we don’t want to rock the boat!… huummm. I wonder if the boat rocked when Peter got out of it? Either way Peter got to walk on water.. The Only other person who’s done that is Jesus! Were the others ones..ya know, the ones that stayed in the boat…. were they too busy talking about Peter that they missed an opportunity? Who cares if people are talking about you! Surrender your life completely to God and you’ll be amazed at who’s talking… Just remember they may still be in the boat.
We have a very real choice to make. Surrender and cooperate with PaPa God or do we stay complacent and deal with the consequences? Either way God will have his way! So are any toes beginning to throb? Any thing rising up in you? Well, that’s good because it means God is working.. Rejoice!! He loves us so much that He’s willing to take us through some uncomfortable situations so He can do what He wants to do in your life and through your life. What an honor. This is happening to everyone and I mean everyone because we all have things out of order in our lives.
This is the perfect time to let it all out and let God have his way. Now is the time and you are the one becasue you are very much a part of his plan and He is putting things in order so let’s help him by not standing in his way.
I’m definately not saying things will instantly be easier but I know you will have a sense of peace from here on out. Because when you know that you know that you know that the One who is now in charge of your life wants the absolute best for you then you can actually breathe alittle easier even when things, situtaions or even life doesn’t turn out exactly like you imagined it would.. This is when trust and hope rises up in you to reign because you know that PaPa God is with you forver and always.
Let’s cooperate and see what He’s going to do because it is going to be amazing and wonderful and beautiful and all of the words that I’m not equipped with becase He is indescribable. I can only imagine what that day will be like when I walk by His side…wait a second… No! I do not have to wait.. I can surrender now and Me and Jesus can get out that boat right now and we can get to walking….
So I encourage you to get wet while carrying your white flag of surrender. I promise you won’t drown because even when focus gets blurred He is there with you and He will reach down and take you by your hand …Just like He did with Peter.
My heart aches for more of God, more of God is less of self and less of self brings more of God and that is perfect order! And I want the same for YOU!!!
He’s calling out to his people and those who arent his He’s asking you to join him. Will you accept his call to join him and let him put things in order in your life because you are a very much a part of his plan and purpose!:)
Let’s pray…….PaPa God I’m here and I’m waving my white flag of surrender. You are Almighty God. You are my creator. You have plans for me and I don’t want to miss a single one of them. I want to do and to say and to be everything you want!! You are Lord of my life and I am in your will. I accept you as Lord and Savior. You reign in my heart and I am fully ready and prepared to be ready and prepared for what you have for me. I lay any idea of what I thought my life was and is down at your throne and I wait in excpectation of you! In Jesus name Amen:)
