I hope you are keeping safe. I am trying my best to keep safe, knowing my ultimate safety is of the Lord. May the Lord keep you and I, and all that is ours.
In line with your suggestion, prompting, and encouragement with regards to stepping out in faith, seizing my kairos moment, to walk the path heaven has bestowed on me, I write this to you.
In many ways, and for so long, I have been hasty in running with divine prompting. God in His infinite mercy has always and continuously shown mercy and have not allowed me to suffer irreparable loss.
The Fire of the Holy Spirit burning in a soul this fiercely, if care is not taken, one might step out too fast. According to Luke 14:28 ““If you wanted to build a building, you would first sit down and decide how much it would cost. You must see if you have enough money to finish the job. 29 If you don’t do that, you might begin the work, but you would not be able to finish. And if you could not finish it, everyone would laugh at you. 30 They would say, ‘This man began to build, but he was not able to finish.’
I am one for doing what need to be done right away and do not slack at all in pursuing what I believe in. I have come to understand however that even though you do not have to wait for all resources to be readily at your disposal before you venture on in a project, you however need the guidance of the Holy Spirit for the things of the Spirit.
Many a time I have acted as prompted and lead by the spirit and the result was tremendously uplifting. But then, I had slacked behind to reach out as prompted and many years after I am still wondering if that soul is lost for eternity because of my unbelief. I will never know now until eternity.
It was my first call as a young adult, I was twentyish, my mother was hospitalized and anytime I go in to visit at the hospital, there is this particular person in pain that the Lord asked me to pray for. I was but a young believer and was not sure of myself and delayed in responding. The very day I believed I had prayed up myself with faith and courage, I practically ran into the ward and this woman was no more. Oh, how I cried, prayed and asked for forgiveness, hoping that someone else had walked in and prayed for the woman before she passed.
That was many moons ago and yet I have never forgotten. And then there was a case of wanting an alliance so desperately, that I was so fixated on what I wanted until the Lord opened my eyes to see, ” something like, its gross, but there is no way to paint the picture other than presenting it as it is. You see, I saw a grown person, who apparently had used the bathroom without cleaning up, walked around with flies gathered on the backside like bees around honey. Then this person comes around to walk seemingly over me and I flew off from where I was, I wouldn’t let this dirt around me.
You see, I was so desperate for this alliance that I did not see the red flag that it was not meant for me. It took this vision to see it for what it was.
Now, back to what is at hand, when the fire falls from above, it brings clarity, you get insight, depth of it, and you are attune to everything in a different way. What is ahead that has been blurry get clearer. There is no need for me to be hasty, the Spirit is leading and I have never gotten clarity as much as now.
I can’t help but say that I am in a very good place. I am walking the path heaven designed for me. Things are making sense that were very confusing and frustrating before.
Therefor, my lovely friend, I appreciate your love and concern, I mean time truly do not wait for no one, its not good to put till tomorrow what you can do today, and seize your kairos moment. I get it!
Yet, the vision/ revelation is for an appointed time it speaks of the end and will not prove false. Though it linger, wait for it; it will certainly come and will not delay – Habakkuk 2:3
Shalom! Shalom! Shalom!
