We are being saved at deeper levels.
It is amazing the bondages we get ourselves into because of judging. I judged having nothing to do when I was a child back on the farm. Two weeks ago in praying about the lack of activity in my life the thought came that I had judged that.
Amazing how it is like a light being turned on and now I could understand how that had controlled me all these years.
I hated doing nothing, yet when I had something to do I went at it like a bull at a gate because I had to get it finished so that I would return to doing nothing instead of taking time, going slower and working at a sensible pace.
That is crazy. That is why the Word says judge not.
What we judge we become controlled by.
You who judge practice the same things, Romans 2:1
I repented and having done so have experienced freedom in that area.
Yesterday came to the realization I hated change. Having just received a new computer [the latest model] there are always changes which are natural.
We live in a world where change is a fact of life. For one, from the time we are born till we physically die, our bodies are changing daily.
There has been many changes in the world over my almost 74 years.
I was brought up on a farm where every thing was done by hand with the aid of a horse or two. Today where most westerners have a cell phone, plus the endless list of gadgets that are run by a computer chip, including me.
We can choose to still live like people did 50 or so years ago, or go with the flow experiencing all the things that are there for our convenience.
Whenever I get a thought especially out walking in the morning praying about every thing and nothing I believe it is a revelation from Father God.
As soon as I repented of my judgment against change I remembered many times coming home from school and heading to the bedroom and found Mum had moved us to another bedroom. For the life of me I could not understand why. The house only had 3 bedrooms and at least 7 of us living at home then.
Such things affect people in different ways. For me the change in bedrooms locked me into disliking change. I accepted it with gritted teeth.
I have spent almost 40 years travelling the word with all the daily changes one experiences going from country to country leaving the comforts of home.
I have come to know that any thing we are controlled by in a negative way that causes us to not be at peace is because we have judged it as good or evil, right or wrong.
The reason people are not at peace is because they have judged something.
Philippians 4:6 Be careful [anxious] for nothing; but in every thing by prayer and supplication with thanksgiving let your requests be made known unto God.
As they say no worries.
Isaiah 26:3 Thou wilt keep him in perfect peace, whose mind is stayed on thee:
