desperation is the key

When the woman with the issue of blood dragged herself through the crowd to wait in anticipation of My passing and reached out to touch the hem of My garment, that was desperation. She had no other hope. All that remained of her faith and strength was focused totally on that action.

Perhaps you don’t have a clear picture of that event. This woman was not just being carried around on her bier. She didn’t just get up and stroll over, casually waiting to touch Me as I passed by and then say, “Oh, how nice, I feel much better now.” This poor woman had been bleeding for many years. Her body was emaciated. Her ability to walk had long passed. This precious one had to literally drag her half-dead body across the ground, through the thick crowd, in agonizing pain to reach Me. It was frightening for her. She could have easily been trampled upon. All she could think of was the hem of My garment that she was determined to reach. She knew that if she could only touch the hem of My garment, she would be healed. She was desperate and she had faith.

She had a level of desperation that many have never even imagined. Even to reach out those inches to touch some part of My garment required tremendous effort on her part. It was her sheer desperation, born of faith, that wrought the miracle. Her need was so tremendous. This is why‚ at her touch, I felt the power of the Father flow through Me and into her. Her desperation evoked an equally strong bolt of the Father’s power and Spirit that was channeled through Me, to her” (Mark 5:25-34).

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.”

working with the father

You may assume that being able to hear from My Father was a completely natural thing for Me, that it was just second nature to Me, a part of My makeup, because I was the Son of God come to Earth. But that wasn’t the case. It was very much something I had to get desperate about and work at. The Enemy fought it tooth and nail; it was an intense fight in the spirit and didn’t come easy.

Does it seem odd to you that I wasn’t always able to hear My Father’s voice automatically and without any obscurity whatsoever? What you have to understand is that My Father had to allow Me to feel somewhat disconnected from Him at first, because connecting had to be something that I had to learn how to do, something that I had to fight for. I had to take on your nature and experience your weaknesses to understand the difficulties you’d be faced with, so that I could help you overcome them.

I was working with My Father, just as you work with Me today. I had to tap into His power. I couldn’t do it on My Own; I didn’t have all of the wisdom of Heaven with Me by osmosis, just as you don’t today. I had to ask for it, I had to suck for it, I had to be yielded to receive it, just as you have to do today.

When I came to Earth‚ I underwent a sort of memory wipe. I couldn’t have gone through what I needed to go through, and have learned what I needed to learn in order to be your High Priest, if I had been all-knowing at the time and had never needed My Father’s help, and had never felt what it was like to be in need of answers, guidance, and instruction. I had to go through what you go through.

Of course, it eventually came easier to hear from Heaven once I learned what steps to take in order to break through in spirit and receive. But even when I became proficient in it‚ there were times when the answer or direction didn’t come in an instant, when it was still a battle to receive‚ and it wasn’t just “all clear” the moment I asked.”

full possession

Being fully possessed by the Lord is not something that happens overnight. It’s a step-by-step process and takes time. Here are some of the things that you can do on a daily basis to put you on the path of full possession:

* Spend time in the Word.

* When something is not according to the Word, shun it.

* Be instantly obedient, and stick to your convictions regarding what’s right or wrong.

* Hear from the Lord in prophecy. Let Him speak to you regularly.

* Be humble‚ and give the Lord the glory at every opportunity.

* Don’t get sucked into the influences of the world-its media‚ entertainment, values, materialism, carnal-mindedness, etc.

* Praise the Lord at every opportunity.

* Be more loving and giving.

* Be a faithful witness.

(Jesus: ) If you are going to use the full power I have given you, I cannot share your thoughts with the carnal mind. I cannot perform mighty works through you in coexistence with the mind of man-for this hinders, it sets back‚ it stifles My Spirit from fully and completely performing great feats through you. It prevents you from activating the full capacity of spiritual powers that are at your disposal.”

receiving god’s guidance

How was I able to know what the right decision was in each situation, and then make that decision?-By making listening to My Father the cardinal and unbreakable rule in My life. Every action I took, each choice I made‚ was the right one, the humble one, the perfect one, because it was the one My Father wanted Me to make.  Although being faithful to ask Me about everything may seem difficult and impractical to you, what you need to realize is that it doesn’t have to be a long and in-depth process every time. The Spirit is broadcasting all the time-all you have to do is learn to turn on and tune in. Doing so is vital to the success of your personal mission on Earth, just as it was to Mine.  Of course, learning to hear clearly from Heaven sometimes takes time and practice. It doesn’t always come easily; it requires discipline and concentration in order to focus and to receive, and it can sometimes be a real fight in the spirit. It was for Me; that was something I had to get desperate about and fight for too. What do you think I was doing those 40 days and nights after I was baptized by John, other than being tempted by the Devil? (See Luke 4:1-13.) I was getting desperate with My Father and learning to tap into His strength and Spirit. I was learning how to hear from Him; I was learning and practicing the art of full possession.”
