The man’s heart will devise his way, but the Lord will direct his steps. It’s not just a one way Avenue. You’ve actually got to make some decisions. You’ve actually got to come to the place where you say, I’m going to devise my way. And that doesn’t mean scheme it out and figure out how you can make it happen. But what it means is I’m going to regulate my life according to what I know in my gut. The Holy Ghost is telling me. And if that means that I need to do less so I can accomplish more, ultimately, then that’s what I need to do. One of the things that I need to do, because I need to carve out regular time several hours a day, both to pray and to write. I’m in the process of doing that. But yeah, the man’s heart divides his way, devises his course of life and his mode of action. You choose what you do. You choose what you do with your time, not someone else. We’ve got to lean into the word that God has given us. It says here in Habercook, I will stand up on my watch.
I’ll set myself on the tower, and I’ll watch to see what he will say. I’ll watch to see what he’ll say. You know, a lot of us have got so many other things screaming at us all the time that we can never hear what he’s saying. The world is just constantly at us, trying to tell us, be this, do this, think this. But there’s a blank canvas, and we can allow the world to project onto it, and we can seek to see you’re going to become what you behold. You can let the world project onto it, and you can be conformed to that, or you can let the Holy Ghost and the words of the Father project onto it, and you can follow that. It’s not difficult to develop your inner faculty to see. You’ve just got to take time to do it. That’s essentially what prophecy is, Jim. The word inhibit Naba means to bubble up or to boil forth. It’s like percolate God’s words on the inside until they bubble up into your consciousness. I’ve seen this process of watching and hearing and acting in my own wife and daughter’s life a couple of years ago.
They were just starting out in rhythmic gymnastics. And Larna coached Hannah by watching and acting because she wasn’t any big rhythmic gymnastics coach. In fact, a lot of the other coaches really look kind of slanty eyed at her, thinking, Where did you come from? And how did you do that? Because within a year, Hannah was the British champion. And it was like, look, we’ve been slogging this thing out for ten years, raising up these girls. How come these two just come in and sweep it clean? What’s going on here? Because Lana knew her limitations, and she would take time, and the Father would say, do this and she would take that step, that prepared step. And we can do that in any. You know, this is in rhythmic gymnastics. I think God’s into rhythmic gymnastics. Yeah, of course he is. He’s into us. He’s into Hannah, he’s into Larna. Do you think God’s into, like, short story, clean Christian romance? You bet, man. Because he’s into me. It means to bubble up or to boil forth. I just want you to close your eyes just for a minute. I’m wrapping up. I realised I’ve just kind of dumped a big download.
Now, in your mind’s eye, I just want you to just empty that canvas, okay? So just clean the canvas off. White canvas, everyone Lee that okay. Just a big white screen. Can we just make the screen white there? And you just want a wide screen, okay? You don’t want to start painting on it. You don’t want to just let your mind run off in all sorts of directions. Just close your eyes and see the white screen. We all have it. We’ve all got this on the inside. Someone is going to paint on that screen. Someone is going to project on that screen. It’s either going to be the world or it’s going to be heaven. Jesus did what he saw his father do. And now I just want you to, you know, in the comfy seats at Cineworld, you know, the kind of big ones with a bit more legroom. I want you to sit back in one of those. It’s just you and dad in the auditorium. You got the wide screen up there. When you go and see a movie, you’re not looking to project the movie yourself. You’re looking for someone else to project it and you view it.
Okay, so we’re going to let the Holy Ghost just switch on the projector. This is something that needs to be done consistently. Jesus did it on a daily basis. But just for the sake of just working here, I just want you to ask the Holy Spirit. Lord, just show me one thing. I don’t need to know the whole story, but just show me one thing about my future. One thing that you’ve prepared and provided for me to walk into. Just let the Holy Spirit put it on there. Let him just project it, paint it on there. And then, as he does, what I generally do, and this is how I prophesy over people as well. It’s exactly the same process, but profits. The best place to put it to use is privately. You say, okay, I Lee this. It might be a bit hazy, it might just be kind of black and white. It might be a little bit flicker or whatever. It depends how well you’ve developed the faculty, but you develop it by, like, any muscle. You just practise. And then you ask God, just expand on that for me. Show me something else.
Show me more what do you mean by that picture? What does this picture represent or whatever question comes to your mind and as you ponder things, it’s like that to bubble up or to boil forth. We’ve got to give time. We’re so manic, we’re so involved in the hustle that we just don’t take time to hear. But I can assure you we can accomplish more in a moment of hearing than we can in a lifetime of hustling. Who sees something now? Who’s seeing anything? Yeah. Is it something that you recognise and witness to? Yeah. So you’ve got, you know and you’ve got. This is a God thing. The Holy Spirit will witness with our Spirit. The Scriptures say, does it concern your present? Does it concern your future? See, the scriptures say in the book of Hebrews that God framed the world through faith. He pictured it. But you know when you frame a picture, you give definition. You give definition to it. You define the boundaries so it comes into focus. That’s what we need to do. You need to define the boundaries. You’re not there to judge. You’re not there to determine whether it’s possible or not.
Your part is to watch and see it play out on the screen and see. This is how faith comes. A picture will speak 1000 words. Who else is seeing something right now? It’s good when we see what the father’s saying. It’s not going to make us feel fretful. It’s not going to make us feel as though we’re inadequate. Because we know that we know that. We know that. We know this is what I was made for. And not only has God prepared the way he’s provided everything for me to fulfill this path that has called me to walk in.
