If someone called you a prophet, would you laugh? Is it a foreign concept? Isn’t it true that you constantly make predictions about people and situations? Isn’t it true that you predict how they will respond? Isn’t it true that you forecast from previously held knowledge whether or not they will be interested in a product or service? You may speak in a deliberate tone with carefully selected words to achieve desired results and many of these choices may be based upon data that you collect consciously and unconsciously from observing, reading, hearing and then interpreting this collection of data. Often what seems to come out of nowhere is really a synthesis of your experience.
This is why you should never pray for something outside of you. Seek only for the inner communion with the “I Am” Presence of God within you. For example, if you pray for a house, you are in sin because you just separated yourself from the house. This is why Jesus said, “what things soever ye desire when ye pray.” Jesus was saying, “Wait a minute, don’t come to me about things in prayer. Just believe that you receive them and you shall have them.
You should never be in a place where you are struggling for full baskets. Just be the fullness of every basket around you. There are many things that come up and Spirit will say, “Okay, you know what you have to do. Remember the last lesson I taught you?” “Yes, Lord, be still.” Let be and be still.” Then people look up and say, “But wait a minute, this is the situation that is at hand right now.” They will give you a hard fact. A hard fact is one that will look good on the paper.
But you have to begin to dialogue with yourself in your own consciousness. “What are you going to do?” “I am going to let be and be still.” “Why?” “Because something is trying to keep me from knowing and understanding that I am God. Something is trying to get me in crisis mode. Something is trying to get me into an emergency.”
Jesus said Lazarus was sleeping. However, Mary said, “Lazarus is dead. Jesus, that is your friend. You should have been there when you got the first notice.” Then a friend of Jesus came and brought him a hard fact. “He stinks! Roll the stone away.” But Jesus said “Let be and be still! Don’t get in a panic.”.
God wants to get you to the point where you can just let be. Just be filled! God said, “Let there be light. Let there be a firmament in heaven. Let there be fish in the sea. Let there be fowl in the air. Let there be. Let be; let be; and just be still and know that I am God.”
The only struggle you should have is just being still and knowing that I Am. Let go of God for the sake of God. Most people are praying to a God outside of themselves. Let go of God for the sake of God. God’s exit is his entrance. The more you seek God, the less you will find God. Maybe that’s why you are supposed to be seeking first the kingdom. Find the system and stop looking out a personality. God does not ask anything else of you except that you let yourself go and let God be God in you.
