When I travail in prayer and the tears flow I’m not always sure why. We have burdens on our hearts about certain people and things but understanding doesn’t always come when we cry. I’ve come through a time like this and it brought a new baptism of the spirit in the depths. I do know that it has a lot to do with seeing how treacherous dealings are effecting people we love. But there’s also a release of joyful tears when a heart has been touched and changed. When we cry so deep that it can’t be controlled we just have to let it wash whatever needs washing. And we always come out of that kind of prayer with a new day way of being and seeing. We just know good things are happening and sadness and sorrows flee away. The Lord has released virtue. It’s a soul restoration for us and we become new. The oil of joy for mourning.
I was reminded of this earlier word..”God turns the mountain over to the roots. Our soul needs his lovelight down in the depths. Let God peel off every layer, like an onion, and get down to the core of all of our issues.”
We need a single eye. He has to refine and lift our thought patterns so that they become light. I have to keep reminding myself that we have to always yield to his work within us so that our walk is always about lifting up the name of Jesus. We’re being delivered out of the old man Adam’s soulish thoughts and ways and being changed as we grow. Our continual consent to yielding our emotions and desires to God’s total work in the now will save us from troubles later. We’re learning how to co-labor with the Lord in the blood covenant and live in the new man. God’s way is to deal in the depths with heart woundings and memories of past defeats. He is able to re-channel our fears into new day courage. In Jesus there’s nothing hopeless that’s within the will of God. The Good Shepherd is passionate to restore our soul and wash it white as snow. Adam has to die off and Christ born down in the depths of our being. If we yield fully we can trust Holy Spirit to fulfill the will of God in us.
How much more shall the blood of Christ, who through the eternal Spirit offered himself without spot to God, purge your conscience from dead works to serve the living God?”
The true Spirit of Faith is always rooted in a deep and right understanding of God’s blood covenant. Christ Supreme.
