And thine ears shall hear a word behind thee, saying, This is the way, walk ye in it, when ye turn to the right hand, and when ye turn to the left. (Isaiah 30:21)
Have your thoughts become God's thoughts? After prayer in Penuel, Jacob returned to his family with God. Have you met God? The mother of Samson met an angel. She came and told her husband. Then their thoughts began to rise higher and higher. When you and your wife pray together everyday, one day you will pray only God's thoughts. You feel you are swimming in the current of God's thoughts. What a great blessing it is! When you pray, you pray the will of God. Rebellion pulls us away from God's thoughts.
David's beautiful son Absalom never came to reach the level of God's thoughts. Thus he was full of pride. He daily looked into his mirror at his own reflection. He never wanted God's thoughts. He was full of rebellion. His father loved him. It was a kind of faulty love. When he did not repent for murder, he kissed him. It was a wrong kiss. God doesn't do like that, but He follows you with his goodness which leads you to repentance. He followed St. Paul and one day overpowered him. One day God's grace will overpower you. He is at your heels. All the power you imagined and wished for is there with him. David wanted to be the king's son-in-law, but God gave him the kingdom itself.
Daniel's thoughts began to rise higher and higher. One day he prayed in God's presence to see whether he was right with God and an angel came and said, 'You are dearly beloved'. As he began to pray an answer was coming. But on the way, the powers of darkness hindered and delayed the answer. There are powers of darkness around you, but you will conquer. The rebellion in your heart should die and then God's thoughts and yours will become the same. It happened so to Abraham. When God asked him for his son there was no resistance in him. The whole Heaven rejoices when a human heart comes to that level. God will bless the whole world through your family. Do you believe that? Are you sure that by God's grace the rebellion in your heart will die and God's power will work through you to change the whole land? Have you conquered? Has the resistance to God gone from your heart? If God says, 'Go this way', will you say, 'Yes I will go?' If that rebellion dies you will hear God's voice always. He will follow you with his guidance.
