Let Go Of Your Foolishness And Open Your Eyes

It seems I must kick you in order to awaken you. But know, kicking is not my first choice. If you will take time to listen to me softly, gently, consistently then big interruptions will not be necessary. If you will see the storm on the horizon and alter your course early, there will be no need to weather the storm. If you will apply what you already know, you will save yourself so much heartache. (1)

I am encouraging you to follow what you already know, for though it is small, it is good. It will serve you and preserve you. It will keep you, if you will follow it. I have given you my son, I have given you my word, I have given you my spirit. I have given you so much, and still you do not follow; still you do not obey. Remember the gentle path you desire is available to you, but it will not look like the path you currently hold in your mind’s eye – the path of luxury, glamour, and ease. (2)

My definition of ease and your definition of ease are very different. Likewise my definition of gentle and your definition of gentle are also very different. My plans for you are kind, but you must follow them. My plans for you are good, but you must obey. You kick, scream, press and protest, as though I want to harm you, as though I am your enemy, as though I would do something bad to you. There is no need to continue to resist me. (3)

Let go of your foolishness and open your eyes. Let go of your imaginations and renew your mind and spirit. The poison you drink will surely carry its effects; it will surely take its toll on you day after day. I am encouraging you to be sober minded, so you can walk in honesty but also understanding. I am encouraging you to put away your distractions and idols, and to pick up your cross and follow me. (4)

I will love you and I will guide you. I will be with you step by step every single day. I will never leave you. I will never abandon you. I will never neglect you or forget about you. All the things I have in store for you are good for you. Only my goodness will I bring to you, and though you do not know what goodness is, I will teach you. I will show you by my hand, and reveal it to your heart. (5)

Continue not in your habit of resistance, for my plans and my leadership will be a great blessing to you. You will enjoy the results of following me, and will enjoy the fellowship of obedience. You will not regret it. You will not be disappointed. (6)
