Instrumental Thinking

Does an instrument know when it is being used? Does a scalpel know it has been picked up or that it is in the hand being used?

Instruments do not need to know- they need to perform and execute. Thank God for this! Can you imagine if every time we grabbed our cell phone, before executing any task it asked ‘why did you pick me up? I want to call Dr.Phil. ‘Why so early? I’m not comfortable trying to ring him so early. He might not be available.’ Or ‘I don’t understand why you want me to call Dr.Phil’. Even more infuriating would be if the cell phone replied ‘Are you sure Dr.Phil is who you would like to call? I am not certain that is who you really want to call. I don’t trust you. Please try again later.’

All of our cell phone addictions would be instantly broken! Families would once again be seen and heard having conversations across the dinner table.

Again, instruments do not need to know- they need to respond, perform, and execute.

How so?

Instruments need to be:

#1 Available , unoccupied

#2 Sanitized and Clean

#3 Calibrated, Aligned, Tuned-Balanced, Charged, Fueled- equipped

#4 Reliable, Consistent in performance, Durable

If the instruments are not:

#1 They are set aside, their use is discontinued

#2 The inoperable, malfunctioning or substandard instruments are identified, tagged, and placed apart from the instruments that are ready

#3 They will be replaced under warranty, repaired if possible, or placed in recycle bin to be sold off as parts.

Each believer– is an instrument of Almighty God.

God does not make junk. He creates masterpieces. Let us be ready to perform, do and execute -at a moments notice. Without pre-approval, or having God fill out a 10 page questionnaire. What God is asking us to do, is not on our timeline, it is on His. If you were not ready- He would not be asking.

Trust in Him. Not in yourself. Do not try to quickly gauge how likely you are to succeed in accomplishing the task before deciding to move your feet. This is not trusting God. This is trusting in yourself. While you are contemplating and analyzing, the opportunity may pass you by. Time is off essence.

Seize the moment by exercising your Faith and Trust in Almighty God, and proceed ‘to do’ what God commands or asks of you.

When? The moment He asks.

Stop analyzing, counting, accessing, charting, evaluating, strategizing in case your first effort fails, or all the possible outcomes- because you will never guess nor foresee the outcome of His plan. Stop asking and waiting for all the details before you move. This is NOT trusting God. This is trusting all the details.

If He asks you to do something, believe He is going to equip you with what you need. It does not need to make sense to you. Often it does not. For we never know what Almighty God is doing when He is doing it. We are left as much as a spectator as anyone else. We are all left in awe – Of His Infinite Working Power.

A great example of this, is when we petition God for an answer or direction about a matter. We do not receive an immediate answer.. a few days pass……we go to open our bible just to read it and we spontaneously open it up. The first page it opens to, our eyes immediately see the answer, or the answer is within the very first scripture we read. This is a perfect example of the amazing transparent working power of Almighty God. What looked spontaneous to us, was not spontaneous at all. Out of 1,200 pages, He directed us to open to the exact one that contained the answer! The best part about it is- when He did- we didn’t even realize He was using our fingers to do so! Simply incredible.

I promise you this day, in those moments you hear or feel God asking you to do something, …yes it is fearful, yes it is daunting, especially if you have never done it before, it will be like the entire spotlight is on you… cause it is…but that’s okay.. banish fear and doubt- and TRUST IN HIS PLAN- remember- they do not call Him Almighty for no reason- if you do- you shall SEE THE GREATEST MIRACLES you have ever seen. That is the fruit produced by those who trust in God.

These moments have been the most astounding in my life. Yes, sometimes we will get it wrong. And it won’t be God’s voice. But as He reminded me once while in church as I was frozen stiff- “Son, if you fall where do you think you will fall? Will you fall and hurt yourself? ” Such remarkable advice. He really knows how to put things in perspective. He was not asking me to go free solo without a rope, I wouldn’t be risking falling 200 hundred feet to my death. All I had to do is take one step forward- toward Him. Once you get that first step going, He will empower you to do the rest.

Remember, If you get it wrong, dust yourself off, try again. The more you exercise your Faith, each and every moment you do, you are sharpening your spiritual discernment and your ability to identify His voice and distinguish it from all the others. In Jesus name may you grow in wisdom, discernment, capacity, focus, sharpness, trust, and faith.. in Jesus name, I pray, Amen.

My aim is to help others make sense of their own lives, by sharing the failures and misfortunes of mine. Misfortune and failure lead a man to the unmistakable clarity of his deception- That there is no need, nor room for God, because he himself is self sufficient, well educated, rich and capable. The more the man stays his ground, holding fast to his position- the more suffering he shall bring into his life. Suffering is the ground upon which elimination of the false occurs and perception of the Truth begins. After enough time is spent courting Misery, Pain, Humiliation, Slavery, Emptiness, one seeks to stop the bleeding. Some men prefer to bleed their way to death rather than admit their ignorance; that their way will never work. While other men, surrender, which is the beginning of knowledge. By surrendering the man does not fall, he rises and steps foot upon the path of Eternal Wisdom and Truth. It is the path that leads to Eternal Life- the pursuit of knowledge, is the pursuit of Almighty God- Man's Creator. *If you have questions, concerns, need direction, prayer, you may email me.* I do not charge for what Almighty God has given me freely.
