IN HIS PRESENCE
There is a story about two brothers and an amazingly, loving Father told in Luke 15:11-32, titled, 'The Prodigal Son'. We often read this story with little sympathy for the younger brother, feeling he was spoilt and greedy to ask for his inheritance, dishonour his father, travel afar, get lost and squander everything. However, at his lowest point he realised he was lost, remembered his identity and returned, broken and apologetic. The extravagantly loving father, so happy to have his lost son return home, celebrated him and reinstated him as his son.
I was thinking with Father God about the order in which we do things. I mean which order would you place the horse and the cart? For the cart to get to its destination, you would have to put the horse before the cart. I wonder if we have thought about who our "Source" is. It's important that we learn to live from our source so it's our responsibility to understand 'who' our source is.
Lean in... is an idiom, which from a dictionary point of view means to incline, or press into something. I know the word is known to mean other things but many years ago, Papa decided that it was imperative that I understand exactly what......' Lean in ' meant, so He sent me to an Aglow Ladies conference. Some may be wondering how I knew that God sent me. I reckon that when you are in relationship, you begin to understand different ways you communicate with each other.
I feel children have so much to teach us about the way to respond in many situations. Children can be ever so perceptive and able to understand quickly without pre-conceived ideas. This enables them to respond quickly and wholeheartedly. When they have not been tainted by the views of this world, they naturally walk in truth and are open to all God has for them. The Bible advises us to have child-like trust, in other words, we are to receive the Kingdom of God like children.
