In today's edition we take a look at one of the few times in scripture that we get a glimpse of what goes on in Heaven:
“And the Lord said, ‘Who will entice Ahab into attacking Ramoth Gilead and going to his death there?’ One suggested this, and another that." 1 Kings 22:20
Here is one instance when the angels were conferring with the Lord about the judgment of King Ahab for his sin and who was going to set up Ahab for this judgment.
If God wanted to use you to impact your world for Jesus Christ what circumstances would have to be created in order for you to respond to His call?
What would your response be should God and the angels conclude that the only way to move you into a position of fulfilling God’s purposes was to remove some things that might be very dear to you?
Would you agree with their plan if you knew this would be the only way you would achieve the purposes for which God made you?
Hard questions, aren’t they?
This is the very thing God does in many who have been called for a special mission (see illustration above):
There are many examples of God bringing major upheaval in the lives of those He called for His purposes. Why?
The reason is that we do not seek God with a whole heart in times of prosperity and comfort. Prosperity and comfort tend to breed complacency and satisfaction.
It is rare to find the man or woman who seeks God with a whole heart who does so simply from a grateful heart. We often must have pain or crisis to motivate us.
Eventually, that crisis bridges us to a new calling, and we embrace that calling if we are open to the Holy Spirit’s work in us. We can actually thank God for the change that was required to get us to this place, but it is not without anguish of heart.
Would you be willing to sit in the strategic planning session for your life and agree with the plans God has for your life?
Could you give God complete freedom to implement that plan, no matter the cost?
Ask God to give you the grace and trust in His love for you to say “yes.”
