Opened to the following this morning:
"No weapon that is formed against thee shall prosper; and every tongue that shall rise against thee in judgment thou shalt condemn. This is the heritage of the servants of the Lord, and their righteousness is of me, saith the Lord." (Isaiah)
What is it about the "servant of the Lord" that should bring such promise? It is certainly not about belonging to certified organization of professors!
We have identified three essential elements that make up a "servant of the Lord":
1. Right identification. Adam, "born in sin," a material man - could hardly be thought of as a "servant of the Lord." So we must identify with Christ, follow the Wayshower, and as such, identify with the spiritual, calling no man our father, but God our Father-Mother.
2. Walking by faith, not by sight - i.e. cultivating a spiritual sense, instead of personal sense which relies on the physical senses. Spiritual sense enables one to identify "the enemy" long before it invades consciousness and takes up residence in thought. Personal sense is blind to its own blindness.
3. A desire to do the will of God even before being a good person. This requires doubting our own knowledge and sense of things, and acknowledging that only divine Intelligence knows the total picture. Only He can fulfill "What blesses one blesses all."
The heritage of this "servant of the Lord" is a security far beyond human conception.
