These things you have done, and I have been silent;
you thought that the I AM was one like yourself.
But now I rebuke you and lay the charge before you.
"This is the year of Divine Order!", has been much declared over the past few weeks. As far back as October, I have documented in my journal Abba speaking of Divine Order to me, and I agree. It is an exciting state of affairs so long as we understand that the order to be set is as GOD decides it should be set. We are not to think it is "in order" in so much as it agrees with OUR plans. Be not deceived: God is not mocked. His Word is not to be used, applied, or declared as a part of some strategy to get what WE want. Abba Father cannot and will not be manipulated. There are some who see God as the picture above: As if HE were some genie, some magical being that grants wishes. It is fine to "decree and declare", but it had best be coming from a stance of relationship with and obedience to Abba Father. It is vain babblings to quote scripture from any other position. Whispering sweet nothings, "working" the Word, rubbing that lamp. No! Out of order! Read all of psalm 50. The context of the scripture text is Our Father in heaven says, "I have seen some things." God says:“What right have you to recite my laws or take my covenant on your lips? You hate my instruction. You cast my word behind you and discard them. You associate with ungodly folk. You give your mouth to evil, you sit and speak against your brother slandering your own mother's son. It is the year of Divine Order all right! For verse 21 in the Amplified version reads: "These things have you done and I have kept silent."
But now I will reprove you and put [the charge] in order before your eyes.
Abba Father is not bound to a lamp do our bidding, bottled up and quarantined from certain areas of our lives. We do not summon Him, He summons us to work along side Him to bring his Kingdom to bear. That flows from a place of Godly order. He is in charge; It is He who has made us and not we ourselves. He is Ribbono shel olam ~ "Master of the Universe". It is actually quite exciting to know that order of a very deep nature is being set! Because out of that will come Kingdom manifestations. Honor Father God as who He is: Our King. Cooperate with God and if reproof comes in the interest of his setting order, so be it! It is a love thing! As many as He loves, He rebukes, He chasens, He corrects, He reproves. HE does it and He does it because He loves us! He will not leave us in our mess. Bless God! To "contain" Abba Father on the back shelf of our lives until we need Him again is self- destructive. We always need Him! We need to " Free" God up and allow Him access to every nook and cranny of our lives. Surrender! He will not force us! Nor will we control Him ! Let go and let God.
Order our steps, oh God!
