(KJV.) ST. JOHN 6:38-40
(38) For I came down from heaven, not to do my own will, but the will of him that sent me.
(39) And this is the Father's will which hath sent me, that of all which he hath given me I should lose nothing, but should raise it up again at the last day.
(40) And this is the will of him that sent me, that every one which seeth the Son, and believeth on him, may have everlasting life: and I will raise him up at the last day.
LET THY WILL BE DONE, O' FATHER!
Brethren, as believers, periodically, we may retreat into peaceful, quiet places away from business, noisy environments to refresh from stressfulness of this world, periods of meditations, prayers and studies of the scriptures; in other to receive instructions, guidances, and revelations from the Holy Spirit, know where we are, what to do focus on within his righteousness, receive fresh Holy Spirit anointings, get strengthen with his words, empowerments to persevere within our various callings.
When in retreats, believers distinctively hear the voice of the Holy Spirit, more than when in busy, noisy environments; for he is our companion, who counsels, guides and directs our pathways at all times; when we set ample times aside, to commune with our Father, Jesus Christ, allows believers grace to hear distinctively from the Holy Spirit, get revelations from the spirits, that normally they would not have known while busy serving him: few examples, before our Father gave Moses rules and regulations for his chosen people, he called him out of the congregation to mount Sinai, where Moses stayed for forty days and nights to receive his commandments. (Exodus 19, 20); when King David committed atrocities against Uriah, the Hittite's household; he repented, fasted, prostrated before our Father, wrote psalm 51, asked for his mercies; our Father had mercy on him, did not kill him, (2 Samuel 11); when Jesus Christ our Lord and Savior, saw his fate, that he would stand trials, sufferings, die on the cross to take away iniquities of humanity, he retreated himself, with Peter and the two sons of Zebedee, into garden of Gesthemane, prayed, pleaded our Father for mercy, to take away his bitter cup; (Mark 14:36); therefore, let us be encouraged to retreat ourselves sometimes, to saturate into the spiritual energy, within the resourceful spirits, fountainhead of our Father, Jesus Christ our Lord and Savior, and the resurrection power of the Holy Spirit, our spiritual resources.
Many times, after believers return back from retreats; they glow with illuminating glories, because they had encounter with the Holy Spirit; likewise, when Moses met with our Father on mount Sinai, received the commandments, came down from the mount, his face shone brightly, that the people could not look at his face. (Exodus 34:29): they are able to have insights, discern intended purposes of their callings, if believers already know purposes before retreats, they will receive more insights to next levels of their callings, focus on those agendas, accomplish goals of life: Jesus knew the will of the Father, why he came on earth; as follows, (i) he came not to do his own will, but that of our Father: (ii) that souls which were given him, should not astray from his righteousness into eternal damnation, but rise up again from death on the day reconciliation, to meet with him skies, dwell with him in eternity; (iii) that everyone who sees him, believes in him, should not perish, but have everlasting life; and will raise him up on the last day; therefore, let us ask ourselves this important question, what is the Father's will for our lives? this a point to ponder on!
Dearly beloved, knowingly or unknowingly, every soul, saved or unsaved, has an intended purpose to fulfill on earth; therefore, let us think carefully about our lives, do what we do best, to maximum capabilities, also, pray, study our children at younger stages in life, to know what types of gifts they possess in their innermost spirits; many times, their speeches, actions and behaviors alerts parents to encourage them to pursue rightful pathways of life; heaven works with souls, regardless of what we do on earth, so long as we do not do evil works, it is never too late to shine our lights, so long as we serve one another cheerfully, and do not serve the enemy; at the end of our journeys on earth, Jesus Christ will receive our souls into his bosom, to dwell with him forever and evermore. Amen and Amen!
