Recently the Holy Spirit awoke me to the phrase "God is concerned about EVERY detail of your life."
I thought about this phrase; mulled it over and have continued to think about this and pray about this Word HE gave me. Over the few weeks that followed, other people began to confirm this word through what they had received from the Father as well. In essence HE was telling us all that HE wants our whole heart . He wants us to bring it to Him first, everything that pertains to us.
In the old Testament, the prophets and the kings of Israel would always inquire or seek counsel of the Lord before they made any major move in their lives and/or for the nation. King David would seek the Lord's counsel through the prophet Nathan. Solomon sought
the Lord's counsel through the wisdom that was imparted into him through a dream, an encounter with God himself. Moses sought the Lord always before any move he made concerning the nation of Israel. In the book of Numbers 12:6-8, the Lord says "When a prophet of the Lord is among you, I reveal myself to him in visions, I speak to him in dreams. But this is not true of my servant Moses; he is faithful in all my house. With him I speak face-to-face, clearly and not in riddles; he sees the form of the Lord. Why then were you not afraid to speak against my servant Moses?" These leaders sought the Lord first and so should we.
The Lord God wants EVERYTHING! He says in His word Isaiah 1:18 "Come, let us reason together, says the Lord. Though your sins be like scarlet, they shall be as white as snow; though they are red as crimson, they shall be like wool. The Lord wants you to talk to Him, pray, meditate on Him, bring your:
questions to Him
the lies you have believed that you thought were true
the darkness within you and
even those things that you dare not mention to anyone, but GOD!
Bring Him your:
Every prodigal son/daughter
Every wayward spouse
Every boss full of strife
Every empty pantry or fridge
Every negative bank account
Every late car payment or mortgage payment
Every home work assignment
Every Sunday sermon
Every Bible teaching
Even your diet; what and how you should eat for your optimal health and long life to complete the work He has called you to do.
EVERYTHING! EVERYTHING! EVERYTHING! BRING IT TO JESUS!
I have by no means accomplished this in every area of my life, but I am working on it because He came to me personally and whispered in my ear "God is concerned about EVERY detail of your life."
And because I believe that I can do all things through Christ who strengthens me-Phil 4:13,
And because I believe He is perfecting everything that concerns me-Psalm 138:8.
So in obedience I submit and I ask the Holy Spirit to show me areas that I still need to release to Him, even those areas I am not aware of.
Let Him do the same for you. Ask Him to show you the areas of your life that you have not totally surrendered to Him and He will show you. Surrender your whole heart unto God; you will be so much the better for having done so.
In love, be blessed in Jesus Name.
