11 And When the ear heard me, then it blessed me; and when the eye saw me, it gave witness to me:
12 Because I delivered the poor that cried, and the fatherless, and him that had none to help him.
13 The blessing of him that was ready to perish came upon me: and I caused the widow’s heart to sing for joy.
14 I put on righteousness, and it clothed me: my judgment was as a robe and a diadem.
14 I was eyes to the blind, and feet was I to the lame.
16 I was a father to the poor: and the cause which I knew not I searched out.
When men failed you and you seem to be at the end of the road, you tend to justify with God the good deeds you have done. Job did but God remained silent. He was eyes to the blind and feet to the lame and father to the poor yet he was subject to calamity.
It is not good deeds but His grace, peace and mercy that can bring you out of the wilderness. God does not desire sacrifice nor good works though they are important for the extension of God’s kingdom. He desires your heart to know him intimately as a child yearns for his or her father’s embrace and love. God this day is looking for a true son and daughter who will align to His heart and not judge by what he or she sees or makes decisions by what he or she hears. Isa 11:3 but He is looking for your delight in reverential fear of the Lord.
Be a true child of God.
It is amazing that one makes decisions based on perception. If you have been wounded in childhood, you are actually making life decisions based on the wounds of childhood. The purpose of healing and growing up again in Christ Jesus to spiritual maturity through our Father me program is to override what wounded children ‘s brain drive them to think, feel and do by using the frontal cortex of their brain to make decisions and to bring captive the imagination and bring down the strongholds (2 Cor 10:5). Our weapons of warfare are mighty.
2 Cor 10:4
4 (For the weapons of our warfare are not carnal, but mighty through God to the pulling down of strong holds;).
Maturity is to be able to see reality instead of perception. Perception is presumption and is sin in Psa 19:13. Do not be blinded by Satan. Tear down lies of pride, unforgiveness, anger, resentment, vengeance and bitterness, self pity and poor self image and habitual sins.
Hear what God said in Jer 29.11-13, Pro 4:20-23. Transformation of heart is what God is seeking in His children. How many wrong decisions you have made in life ? Those were made out of your woundedness. Do not lean on your own understanding, Pro 3:6-7 do not be hasty in your decisions. Seek God for strategies and be still. Have calmness in the spirit. Ps 46.10. Be a child of God. Don’t behave like the world.
