I asked the Lord is this in me? His reply was "You all do it. I spend much time addressing it with you."
I want to make sure at this point that there was nothing harsh in this conversation, His spirit was sweet and light. I think because That is where our relationship is at. He knows I love HIm and desire to be better at this relationship than I am right now. He is a gentile Sheppard with HIs sheep. Beware if your the wolf.
This got me thinking about how right he is. I know I have this bent. I start out with the Lords leading then somewhere along the way I coast on the knowledge I think I have or experience I have had. That would be the point I stopped checking in to get spiritual wisdom and direction from the one I believed was leading the way. Now I am no longer in total surrender but I have taken a spot on the seat that belongs to Jesus.
We can be seated in the throne room and be apart of the conversation like many of old. However the seat of authority , the final say in any matter still belonged to the Lord. All of HIs ways are perfect and beautiful.
He can then give you the authority to accomplish what He has given you to do. I always have to be careful to not tweek the task with some brilliant Idea I haven't passed by him.
