"GOD SPEAKS SO HE CAN HELP US"
Good Evening to All!
And it shall come to pass in that day, that his burden shall be taken away from off thy shoulder, and his yoke from off thy neck, and the yoke shall be destroyed because of the anointing. Isaiah 10:27 KJV
The New King James Version is almost identical with the exception of it ending with "the anointing oil".
Have you ever heard a little voice inside your head or a feeling in your spirit that you feel is nudging you to do something, not to do something, or to try something new? Have you ever had an issue with something or about something that you kept feeling like you needed to deal with, but didn't, so that feeling just kept bugging you? Well, that was more than likely God speaking to your spirit wanting you to deal with that issue.
When this happens, you shouldn't delay. You shouldn't put it off. If you have the in-filling of the Holy Spirit within you, you have a power like none other. The power of the Holy Spirit (or anointing) is a gift from God according to Acts 2:38, when you repent (from your sins-by asking God for forgiveness, and turning your life around away from those old sinful ways and toward God), being baptized in Jesus' name for the remission of your sins, and you SHALL receive the gift of the Holy Ghost. The Holy Ghost (or Spirit) guides us into All Truths, and teaches us God's ways. It empowers us to be able to be strong witnesses for God and to overcome obstacles. That we couldn't do on our own.
We need to allow God to do things in His time. We often make a mess of things because of "timing". If we will pray about things and ask God to show us what to do when, we won't struggle nearly as much or as often. A lot of times there are steps that need to be taken before we deal with certain obstacles, such as if we are dealing with something having to do with other people, God may need to prepare or soften their hearts a bit before you come in contact with them. If it's a job interview, pray about it and let God guide you. This may not be the right job, or God may have something better in store for you.
If we have issues with another person, it is always good to wait and pray about it. This way God can deal with your heart so you won't be angry and as my mom used to say "go off half-cocked" , blow up and say things you will regret or that will get you in trouble. Also by praying and waiting for God to say "when", it will give Him time to work on the other person's heart. Who knows they might come to you and make things right, or at least apologize first. We need to Give God A Chance.
When God convicts us of something that needs to change in our lives, this means that He has prepared us to face whatever it may be. WE may not feel that we are ready or able, but we can trust Him to know better. He knows everything about us. After all He did create us. We always know that His timing is perfect. He is an "on-time God". The Holy Spirit is always there to "break the yoke (or hindrance) and give us freedom.
We must be willing and obedient to Him when He talks to us because it is for our GOOD. The more we step out in faith and obedience to Him to deal with our issues, we will find that the wisdom, grace, power, and ability to handle these obstacles are in us through the Holy Spirit.
Remember delaying what God says to do is just another word for disobedience to Him.
Good Night to All and May God Bless!
