Flowing in the Rhythms of God.
‘I do nothing on my own initiative!’ – John 8:28
God is Omnipotent. Omniscient. Omnipresent. God is absolutely sovereign and does not have to consult anyone before He acts. He is completely self existing, yet His ways can be learned and followed.
I am absolutely convinced that the key to living successfully is not in our own wisdom, but His. I am also convinced that it is possible to live in a rhythm of successes. I mean outstanding, spectacular, stupendous, mind-boggling, successes and breakthroughs, if we can learn to flow in His rhythms.
Jesus said I only do what I see my Father doing. This simple yet profound position seems to me, the most wise and effective way to live.
New King James Version John 5:19 Then Jesus answered and said to them, “Most assuredly, I say to you, the Son can do nothing of Himself, but what He sees the Father do; for whatever He does, the Son also does in like manner.
The Passion Translation John 8:28 “You will know me as ‘I AM’ after you have lifted me up from the earth as the Son of Man. Then you will realize that I do nothing on my own initiative, but I only speak the truth that the Father has revealed to me.
Think about this again. I only do, or I do only, what I see my Father doing. So Jesus never did anything the Father was not doing. He only went where the Father led, said only what the Father spoke and touched only those the Father was touching. That is why Jesus had 100 percent success. He flowed in His Father’s, God’s rhythms.
I know this is not as simple as it sounds. Or perhaps it is!
We must first learn the art of waiting on Him, then making sure we see what He is doing and then going out to execute it according to what we saw.
God has promised in Jeremiah 33:3 – Call to me and I will answer you and tell you great and unsearchable things you do not know.’
Also in Psalm 32:8 – I will instruct you and teach you in the way you should go;
I will guide you with My eye.
The other day whilst walking with my wife. (Did I say she is quite wise!) She dropped a point of prayer. She said Lord help me to see with your eyes. Or help me to see from your perspective. I said wow. That is profound. I added that God should also let us think with His mind and act with His heart.
So, we are determined to live a successful 2020, punctuated with Extraordinary, Spectacular Breakthroughs, by simply flowing in the rhythms of God.
We wait on Him. We hear Him. We do what He shows us or says to us. We experience God’s extraordinary spectacular breakthroughs.
Will you join us? What an exciting prospect for 2020 and beyond.
Let us pray: Father God, I am so delighted that you have great and good plans for me this year. Lord I want to live in the fullness of your provisions and blessings for me this year! Lord teach me to hear you clearly and follow your instructions, so I can experience your extraordinary breakthroughs this year! I ask this in Jesus name. Amen.
