I must tell you that the Holy Ghost Downloads and the messages that I’ve hear over the past week, has been nothing less than incredible, yet so very overwhelming. It’s as if the Lord is Shouting at me! Now, many of us have been taught that the Holy Spirit only speaks in a whisper, with His still small voice. But do you believe that at times, the Lord may become somewhat frustrated with us and because when He whispers, we don’t really listen, so He Shouts! There’s a noise in your spirit that is so very loud that you can’t ignore it. This is not a shout of chastisement, it’s more of a wakeup call, so that He can give us our next set of instructions. I believe that this may apply to some of you, and you know who you are…
Let me begin by saying that there was so much in last week’s episode, “Preparing for the Journey”. Now I must give you a disclaimer, I do not have the gift of prophecy, although some say I do, but that’s not the point. I believe that there’s a major shift happening in our lives and the Lord has had to result to shouting at us, because time is of the essence.
We are being shaped like clay in the potter’s hand into the version of us that we need to be for what’s ahead of us, as we prepare for the journey. I find it very interesting that He uses the same ball of clay to mold us into a new pot. Visualize with me, His hands are so smooth and gentle, as He molds the wet clay. The potter’s hands go up and down and a pot takes shape. But once the pot is formed, it takes time for it to solidify and harden. So, we can’t rush the process or else the clay may be crushed into a ball again and He will have to start over, but remember, He will use the same ball of clay. There is no better place for us than in His hands. The Lord says…
I will teach you wisdom’s waysProverbs 4:11-12 NLT
and lead you in straight paths.
12 When you walk, you won’t be held back;
when you run, you won’t stumble.
As I said last week and will continue to say, the Lord is constantly leading us towards our destiny and many times, we don’t even know it. He is ordering our steps and guiding our decisions, as we move from one place to another in this life. However, the question begs, are we ready to listen to the Holy Spirit or will He have to continue to shout. The choice is ours.
Over the next few weeks, unless the Holy Spirit says otherwise, I would like for us to look a tad closer at our own respective journeys. Let’s consider where we are in our potter’s clay molding process. Are we still a ball of clay? Are we wet clay on the potter’s wheel? Or are we a new pot that has begun to solidify, as our destiny becomes clearer?
I pray that you will join us… and always remember to listen to what the Holy Spirit is saying!
