It's Time For An Upgrade

Christian Author Writer Hebrews 4:10
For he that is entered into his rest, he also has ceased from his own works, as God did from his.

Are you a servant of God who has a desire to know him in more intimate ways? Do you have a hunger and a thirst to know him in deeper ways which will bring a peace and a joy that passes understanding? If the answer to these questions is yes, I have some wisdom to share that will open up new wisdom and heal you to better understand how one might set out to do that. Learning the skills of Prayer will give us keys to his kingdom, and our skills in prayer will equip us to rise up into the eternal places he has prepared for those who love him.

Recently He has been explaining to me how our travailings for spiritual maturity through prayer are comparable to the maintenance of our computers. On our computers, we have a constant need to see that are operating at peak efficiency. When the times comes for regular maintenance improvements we will get a message that an "Upgrade" is available. When this message comes, it is time to make a choice. We decide to accept the new improvement, and then we follow the instructions given to begin the process. We will be advised that we must shut down other operations which would interfere with the process, and begin a time of patient waiting while the changes are being downloaded. This process of waiting cannot be disturbed. No matter how long it takes, we have no choice but to wait patiently for the download to finish so that the change is activated. At times, we find it is necessary to download a "Premium" upgrade, which is more costly but more effective for the maximum efficiency required to accomplish the higher tasks our advance in knowledge and experience has required.

In this same way, we often are called higher by the Lord and we are required to upgrade our spiritual walk. Because we have fine tuned our spiritual ear we hear the voice of the spirit calling us up to a higher place in him. We wisely make a choice to respond to his call quickly and joyfully. We make a choice to fix our focus on His eternal purposes and we resist all distractions. Then we listen for his wisdom and instruction so that we might co-operate with him in activating the upgrade. Patient waiting in his secret place is then practiced as we wait while He moves to download the new changes we need for growth. The new download of fresh anointing oil will keep us at our maximum efficiency for the current season. This then empowers us to make the most of every opportunity to enjoy that closer walk with Jesus we have asked for, and the victories over all opposition that he died to win for us.

We must be aware that to we have to war against temptation to shorten the waiting process! To yield to impatience will stop the download and we will remain out of God's time and we will miss our upgrade. Only by our passion for the Lord and our zeal to learn how to flow in his timings will we know the joy and triumph promised to all who seek his river of love and power.

It is through faith and patience we inherit the Promises of God. We bow down low in humility, we dwell deeper in his spirit and we rise higher into our new and more effective position in Him. The Lord reigns, and we grow up in Him so that we dwell in that ordained place of reigning with him. As we deny self and die daily to all our own agendas we will know and experience the untroubled heart of innocence in his rest.

Amen. May it be so, Lord Jesus!

Revelation 4:1
After this I looked, and, behold, a door was opened in heaven: and the first voice which I heard was as it were of a trumpet talking with me; which said, Come up hither, and I will shew thee things which must be hereafter.
