The watchman has lately been increasingly prompted and deeply impressed in his spirit to spend more quality time with God, seeking God for Himself and not what He can do. So this morning he dusted the floor, took out the thin mat which he had tucked away for quite sometime in the closet since moving to this house.
After spending an hour or so in praying mostly in tongue and reading aloud God’s words at brief intervals, he finally settled down at one spot and leaned his back against the wall underneath a window. Then he heard in his spirit this, “You have done enough talking. Now it’s my turn.” So he listened.
“First, this woman (a sister whom another house-mate is ministering to) was already healed; she will live and not die. Healing is not your ministry. Secondly, cooking ministry is not your calling (he has been cooking for the two). It will be taken care of. Thirdly, I have taken care of your family (in another State going through some significant changes and from whom he has just returned after a visit.)”
“What is my calling then?” He asked.
“You must now focus on completing the First Year Bible College study this year.” (He has started the course but paused half way.) “You will be upgraded to another level next year.”
“What is my calling then?”
“You are being equipped. Finish your equipping as scheduled.”
The watchman knows this is again a confirmation of what he has been impressed in his spirit sometime ago about his calling. Distractions are major weaknesses of his family. Their minds and hearts hardly stay still. His are no exceptions. But this time he has purposed in his heart and mind to hear the Lord. And the Lord does not disappoint.
Romans 5:5 New King James Version (NKJV)
5 Now hope does not disappoint, because the love of God has been poured out in our hearts by the Holy Spirit who was given to us.
