I Will Follow
(#125 from Suffer Well Devotional Series©)
But You took me from my mother’s womb; You made me trust in You, even from my mother’s breast! (Psalm 22:9)
So many words, so much idle chatter, and so much babbling. Babble on? Babylon! Sit still My child. Rest your soul. Rest your tongue and listen! You need to receive this. This needs to break into the matrix of your mind. A paradigm shift is what I offer. I Am Spirit and you must choose who to serve (Joshua 24:15). Will you serve your flesh or the Spirit?
What speaks to you most about Psalm 22:9? Does it matter? Does it speak to you at all? May I now tell you what I Am saying here? Yes, David wrote it, but I told him to. “You brought me out of the womb.” Yes, you are here by My choice. Long before you were birthed from the womb, I birthed the thought of you; I set all of your days in order. I Am the beginning and the end of all things. This includes your beginning and end. “You made me trust in You.” And herein, you have My greatest gift to you.
This is My plan: I CREATED YOU and MADE YOU TRUST ME! It then begs the question; why do you continue to fight Me? Love is what established this irreversible pattern, a pattern emphasized in Ezekiel 11:20. “Then they will follow My decrees and be careful to keep My laws. They will be My people, and I will be their Mighty One.” Just the first four words are needed for this lesson; “Then they will follow.” Does it say, “Then they might follow?” or “Then they could follow?” or “Then they should follow?” No, it says, “Will follow!” Do not turn My gift of life into your vain quest for personal independence. You are My earthen vessel. I will finish the work I intend for you. It is My life inside of you.
This is the promise I have made to you. The Refiner’s fire always begins in My house. (1 Peter 4:17) When I bring this fire into My house, My Temple, your body (1 Corinthians 6:19), you will be very pleased then, for Me to take over all aspects of your life. When this fire comes upon you, I Am quite sure you may even rejoice for Me to take over. Be of good cheer though My child, you were never in control anyway.
For the time has come for judgment to begin at the house of the Mighty One; and if it begins with us first, what will be the end of those who do not obey the good news of the Almighty? (1 Peter 4:17) Or do you not know that your body is the Temple of the Holy Spirit who is in you, whom you have from the Mighty One, and you are not your own? (1 Corinthians 6:19)
Again, the question is, why do you fight Me in this? Do you really believe that if I had left any of it to you that you would ever be able to be joined to Me as One? It’s time for the arrogance, the foolishness, and the lust for death to end. You will trust in Me sons and daughters. You will.
