Zech. 3. “Then He showed me Joshua the high priest standing before the Angel of the Lord, and Satan standing at his right hand to oppose him. And the Lord said to Satan, ‘The Lord rebuke you Satan. The Lord Who has chosen Jerusalem rebuke you. Is this (man) not a brand plucked from the fire?’ Now Joshua was clothed in filthy garments, and was standing before the Angel.
Then He answered and spoke to those standing before Him, saying, ‘Take the filthy garments from him.’ And to him He said, ‘See, I have removed your iniquity from you, and I will clothe you with rich robes.’
And I said ‘Let them put a clean turban on his head.’ So they put a clean turban on his head, and they put the clothes on him. And the Angel of the Lord stood by.”
There comes a time when you have to push yourself into the place of refuge and stand before the God Who Heals Us. For you are of God little children and that evil one touches you not, for greater is He Who is in you, than he that is in the world.
The accuser uses only what he knows will bring you into guilt and condemnation; after you have made a wrong turn somewhere, after you have made a wrong decision somewhere, after you have allowed yourself to enter some grey area somewhere, after you have disobeyed the Lord somewhere, after you ignored His warning or advice somewhere, after, after, after, always, it seems, after.
What is the Lord telling you right now? Is He reminding you of something He has shown you, for that one step of faith you need to take? Has He been speaking to you a verse that has been coming back to you over and over again? Has He been showing you a vision that has seemed like a stage production, acting out the vision
in your mind, even in your spirit? Has He given you a song that you have been singing to Him, that you would feel self conscious about if someone else heard it? Have you been going through you day thinking about what He has shown you, only to shy away from the possibility of the vision coming to pass because of your own fear of succeeding? Are you afraid of hearing someone say to you: “The Lord showed you WHAT?”
Some things, or, rather, a LOT of things in life are hard to explain. But when you follow through with something the Lord has shown you to act upon, the power of God that confirms your obedience will not need any explanation. There is a great cloud of witnesses that are cheering you on. There are angels that are His ministers to do His bidding in your life. There is the Holy Spirit of God Who speaks to you, to empower you, to develop you into the powerful witness you have been called to be. There is the Word of God that is quick, and powerful, sharper than any double edged sword, dividing joints and marrow, soul and spirit, it is the discerner of the thoughts and and intents of the heart. There is nothing hidden from Him to Whom we must give an account.
Just as importantly, there are your friends who know you, who know that you have been wanting to walk in the Holy Spirit, and you have been trying to figure out the right way to do it. These people play an integral part in your life. They will pray for you, and try to give you every opportunity to carry out what the Lord has been showing you, to encourage you to become all that the Lord has called you to be. Now don’t give up, my friends on the vision that the Lord has given you. I, for one, will be praying for you.
The Lord Jesus gave this one very important description of what the Holy Spirit will do in your life. He said: “However, when He, the Spirit of truth has come, He will guide you into all truth; for He will not speak on His own authority but whatever He hears He will speak; and He will tell you things to come. He will glorify Me, for He will take of what is Mine and declare it to you. All things that the Father has are Mine. Therefore I said that He will take of what is Mine and declare it to you.” (John 16: 13-15). What a magnificent promise that is; to actually hear what Jesus is calling you to, through the magnificent Voice of the Holy Spirit. God Himself, revealing His Words to you. This is called “Rhema;” The Word of God becoming alive in you.
Yes, some things are hard to explain. But when the power of the Holy Spirit’s Voice confirms what He is showing you, He will be showing you until you are fully persuaded that what God has promised, He is able also to perform. The Angel of the Lord is standing by. He is ready to confirm every Word and every Vision that He gives you. Call upon Him, and He will answer you, and show you great and mighty things that you know not. God bless you.
