Me: Lord, do you have a moment to listen to me?
Lord: Hello son, yes I do! I always have a moment for you!!!
Me: Lord, as of lately I have been having a hard time letting go of certain strongholds and also surrendering myself to you. 😦
Lord: Son, please read Matthew 16:24-26
24 Then Jesus said to his disciples, “Whoever wants to be my disciple must deny themselves and take up their cross and follow me. 25 For whoever wants to save their life[a] will lose it, but whoever loses their life for me will find it. 26 What good will it be for someone to gain the whole world, yet forfeit their soul? Or what can anyone give in exchange for their soul?
Me: Lord that is some hard truth.
Lord: Son, I am not afraid to offend when I know it’s for your own good. I want you to prosper and not lose your soul because you refuse to die to your carnal flesh but instead give into your carnal flesh instead of fighting back against it. I have to say, son, you brought the hard truth on yourself and I love you enough to provide you with the hard truth when needed
Me: I understand Lord,
Lord: Son do you really understand?
Lord: Son, you can talk the talk all day long but are you willing to walk the walk and truly surrender yourself to me and my will for your life and live out my will for you.
Me: Yes Lord, I’m ready to surrender all to you and allow you to be 100% in control of my life.
Lord: Son, I’m proud of you and I truly want to see you prosper and this is why I must be in control so the Holy Spirit can guide you.
Me: So Lord, what must I do first for you today?
Lord: Read 1 john3:11
More on Love and Hatred
11 For this is the message you heard from the beginning: We should love one another.
Lord: Son, you have been harboring hatred towards a couple of individuals that have recently hurt you and your wife. I need you son to forgive and let go of the hatred festering within. I know what they’re doing isn’t right at all but harboring hatred towards them will not change the outcome. Allow me to deal with them on my own terms for it is I your lord that decides the punishment that your enemies will receive.
Me: Lord, I didn’t realize I have been harboring hatred I know I have been upset with these individuals. Lord, I trust that you know what you’re talking about and I release any harsh feelings I have towards them to you Lord and I forgive them as well. I’m going to go for now Lord.
Lord: Son, it was very nice chatting with you! 🙂
