The Lord bless you, dear Heartdwellers, with His Wisdom.
When I came into prayer today I was upset about something, a situation that I was trying to help in - and it kind of backfired on me. So, I was a little bit upset and I was concerned for a certain soul.
And I said, 'Lord, I am here and you know the grief I am feeling. Where are You?'
Well, the reason He said 'Faithful God' is when I awoke from my afternoon nap - after I fell asleep in worship, I was praying for someone and very concerned. Aching, really. And the song "Faithful God" by Gateway Worship came on. I sensed it was the Lord's answer to my concern, because when I tried to approach the situation directly, it was rebuffed. So, now I know I can rest in His Faithful provision and not worry about it. So, that's why He said that, 'Faithful God - hint, hint!'
At the risk of repeating myself, I just want to say: that's a wonderful way to hear the Lord and what's on His heart for the day.
'Lord, is there something more you want to say today?'
Never be afraid of being wrong. If you have this fear, you are sure to be manipulated by Satan. If you care nothing about being right or wrong, but care very much about the truth, the demons will have no leverage on you.
"Very often I allow error, because I'm taking the soul into a breaking through to a better level of understanding. Always, humility comes before promotion.
"When a soul becomes convinced of their own rightness, an obtuse spirit gains entry. An obtuse spirit builds walls that make you blind to the truth. Whatever knowledge threatens you, they build a blind spot into your thinking. If it goes on for years and years, a person's world becomes more and more narrow and limited. Please, always value the truth above being right and this won't happen to you."
I looked up the word obtuse, by the way - and the only thing that fit what I knew He meant from my experience with this word was "boneheaded." lol... Oh well, I think "obtuse" is a nicer word!
At that point, I was reminded of the building of a skyscraper. The foundation goes down so many hundreds of feet to support the top of the structure. So, the more important the ministry, the longer and deeper the preparation time. At least, that's been my observation.
"Souls that fall into this life pattern only come to know themselves when I take them to Heaven. Then all is seen so very clearly. For some, it's a painful shock; but for others, it's a happy surprise. If you know Me, truly know Me on this Earth, you will also know yourself, because I teach you all about yourself as you follow Me with your whole hearts.
"SO, NEVER BE AFRAID TO BE WRONG. BUT ALWAYS BE CONCERNED ABOUT MISSING THE TRUTH. STAY FAITHFUL TO ME AND FAITHFUL TO THE TRUTH AND YOU'LL HAVE NOTHING TO BE ASHAMED OF IN THAT HOUR."
