Lord is saying: Forgive and forget, I have made you a new creation.
Give everyone a fresh start and rejoice, for I am making all things
new. Your circumstances are changing and you don't quite know
what is happening to you, but seek me every step of the way. Everytime
you obey my instructions you are turning, turning, turning to
the new direction. You shall not be disappointed. Your destiny
is sealed and I shall not go back on my promise to do you good.
Listening to God - Part 3
Spirit can turn our differences into a sparkling variety of colours,
making up the pure, precisive truth that shines like a multifaceted
God is looking for groups
of people who are teachable who will listen to Him and move corporately
with Him as Lord, in His Son Jesus and by the power of the Holy
Spirit, all in agreement with His will, no divisions. Only in
the Spirit is this unity possible, for The Holy Spirit is one
and isn't double minded. Its in the flesh that all the problems
start. The great tragedy when disagreements arise is that many
times the parties involved are saying much the same thing. Different
angles, personality traits, backgrounds or different traditions
taught during their formative years, can cause communication problems;
and the enemy tries to take this and the variables and twist it
all out of shape bring anger, hatred and mistrust between Christians.
Yet in these our diversities is a great potential; God can take
the flavours of our personalities, our wealth of teachings, backgrounds,
talents and mix them together with love and make something of
great beauty and precision, like a multifaceted diamond, shining
forth like the colours of the rainbow, with the glory of the truth.
In the real world, because
of the extremely sharp, hard edge of diamonds, they are shaped
into surgical knives for the most delicate operations of the eye.
When the body of Christ allows the Holy Spirit to work on them
in their groups. there is no telling how He will use them to cure
the spiritual blindess in the people.....
