example of listening to heaven
“The first example that comes to mind was when the Pharisees brought the adulterous woman to Me, asking, “Master, what should be done with this woman?” I knew they were testing Me and that they were out to get Me with that question, and I didn’t know how to answer it. I couldn’t rely on My Own wisdom or experience, nor did I receive the answer from My Father right away, even though I asked. That was the hardest part and was a big test for Me. Would I panic? Would I go ahead in My Own reasoning? Or would I simply not answer and walk away? What was I to do? I did not know. I will wait. I will be still in faith and wait for My Father, and I will trust.
Those moments seemed like hours to Me‚ and to those around Me as well.-To My disciples who wondered inwardly if I had the answer to such a controversial question; it seemed like a lose-lose situation, and their faith in Me was tested. To the scribes and Pharisees, who were impatient and pressed Me, as they were eager to trap Me in front of the people. To the crowd around Me who were keen to mete out judgment. And to the woman whose faith was also deeply tested, as she awaited her sentence.
It was a life-and-death situation, and the pressure was on. I was tempted to give in to the huge amount of pressure I felt to “deliver.” But I waited for the guidance of My Father. I waited quietly and patiently for the voice of the Lord. I waited in faith, knowing that My Father would not fail Me if I did not fail to do as He had commanded.
Then the answer came! My Father spoke, and then it was clear, and what a relief that was! It was the perfect answer and was the right thing to do. He instructed Me to say, “He that is without sin among you, let him first cast a stone at her.” And because no one there was without sin, no stones were thrown that day, and I forgave the woman’s sins. (See John 8:3-11.) You see, much like you, I had no great wisdom of My Own, save that which I received from the Father. For every good and perfect gift is from above‚ coming down from the Father of Lights, with Whom can be no variableness, neither shadow of turning (James 1:17).
“Let every man be swift to hear and slow to speak” (James 1:19). Only once you’ve received My direction, then proceed in faith. Once you’re sure it’s what I’m showing you to do, don’t be afraid to do it. Ask Me for My anointing, and then go in faith, trusting that it will bear the right fruit in your life, and in the lives of those around you.”
