GOD has heard and is In Charge: It’s our time to surrender

In contemplating the implosion of the democratic process around the world, with particular consideration of the BREXIT process in the UK, I’ve not been posting but have been thinking… And here’s what I’ve come up with:

Hallelujah! The parliamentary system isn’t broken. It is being severely tested.

So far, we have a divergent House of Commons and a rogue element of back benchers in the governing Conservative Party who are trying their best to make a rogue Prime Minister (heading in a direction different from the House) accountable.

So far, the system is protecting the country’s sovereignty and it’s democracy – though there is the ever-present threat against it.

Now, I happen to know that a lot of prayerful Christians have been praying “GOD’s will be done.” So, it’s time we trust that same GOD we’ve prayed to, trust that He’s heard and is in charge, and let Him lead as He will.

Shalom, everyone, GOD’s Peace be upon our undeserving nation. Amen.

Yes, there is intrigue. Yes, there are divergent opinions and some looking to thwart the result of a democratic vote taken in 2016. Yes, those who seek to evade that result also do so in the name of democracy … “Let the people re-vote in the name of getting a different result.” But still, at every turn, there are voices of integrity as well as voices of manipulation. Yet, we have prayed.

Now let us trust that the voice of GOD – the will of GOD – will be done as we have prayed and declared.

Amen and amen.

Preparing the Bride of Jesus Christ Reflections and Poetry

How do I surrender to God’s will?

Ready: When I want God’s will in my life, how to I overcome the urge to have my own way? How do I surrender to God’s will? How do I find God’s will and yield my day-to-day life to Him?

Set: I know God’s will is superior to mine, in power, in goodness, in wisdom. But sometimes I just want to do it my way. Sound familiar? Even Paul wrestled with his will, “For the good that I will to do, I do not do; but the evil I will not to do, that I practice.” (Romans 7:19) How can I surrender to God, when my will seeks its own way? Our flesh is strong – not just the physical part of us but our soul as well. Our soul or mind is made up of our will, emotions and intellect. But we also have a spirit, which is that which separates us from all other living beings, and is revived through our faith in Jesus. Though the will may seek its own way, our spirit hungers for God. Our spirit is superior in wisdom to our soul, and just as we can be led by our will, so too can we learn to live by the spirit.

1. Daily, hourly, moment-by-moment, seek for God’s will to be done in your life.

2. Surrender your soul (will, emotions, intellect) to your spirit

3. Surrender your spirit to the Holy Spirit

4. Discover the power of your living spirit over your willfulness. Therein is life!

Go: Be refreshed now, and be willing to allow your living spirit to lead you closer to the LORD God and to life as He wills and purposes for you.      DSCF4160
