We began this series with a prophetic word for 2016 God intends to work in and through each of us! We learned last time that as we do the hard thing, to wait, God shines through us. Today we look at the necessary preparation of Letting God Behind the Curtain.
Nevertheless, God’s solid foundation stands firm, sealed with this inscription: “The Lord knows those who are his,” and, “Everyone who confesses the name of the Lord must turn away from wickedness.”
Those who cleanse themselves from the latter will be instruments for special purposes, made holy, useful to the Master and prepared to do any good work.
2Ti 2:19 & 21
If you have been with the Lord for any period of time you might think, I have turned away from wickedness. I have accepted the Lord, I follow God’s commandments and years ago I broke strongholds and soul ties the enemy had in my life.
God would say, “good for you, but do you want my plan and purpose for your life? Do you want my will?” To be an instrument for His special purpose made holy for this season you and I must allow God to go to behind the curtain to the deep dark reaches of our souls and root out everything.
Personally I can become overwhelmed by God’s plans and purposes for my life and want to hide. When I become overwhelmed I look not to the Lord with confidence but to the tangible, the known, my childhood and say who am I that He would choose to use me because my own parents didn’t. As much as I have worked and wrestled I lack the ability to look to the Lord in critical situations with confidence so I must allow God to root out the last of this childhood pain and allow a deep trust and confidence in God’s choosing me to take up residence in that deep dark hiding place.
Don’t be afraid to let God go behind the curtain of where you are hiding, which keeps you from becoming who God created you to be!
