It’s a grey, very windy, and chilly day today, but as I sat before the fire, the chilly wind striking the back of my neck, I suddenly broke into Praise! I was up and marching around the teepee singing… Rejoice in the Lord always! Again I say REJOICE!!!
I was reading on a book about prayer when the Spirit of Rejoicing hit me! After it subsided I just had to grab my laptop and put out a “blip”! Too many Christians today no longer know how to fight their battles in Spirit! Some future walls of Jericho that the devil had planned for me, just came down! And no one will ever know! Because we prevented it! God sent warrior angels to pull the carpet out from under Satan’s feet before he got to do his dastardly deed!
The child is required to know these things. The child is required to believe these things. The child is required to live like this. The child is required to be simple enough to throw the oars overboard, drop the man-made motor to the ocean floor, and live by sails alone! The child is required to be in love with the sea, forsaking the land, to be the Soul Sailor he sees…in scripture…in the words of Christ…the child is required! Only the child rejoices in these things! Only the child loves living like this! Only the child sees the wisdom of it!
But the proud refuses to believe such things. They are wise. I am foolish. They are stressed and worried about many things. I am at peace. Outside forces change their inner world, but mine remains undisturbed. Because the child still lives at home in his Father’s House. He rejoices in his dependency upon God, while the proud seeks their independence, only to become a prodigal. Whereas the child is the true warrior, because there is no stronger force than child-like faith!
The fast and seeking of Spirit is going so well. I’m way out at sea now. Who knows what tonight might bring? I highly encourage all “children” of God to spend time with the Father in this way!
