Last night the Lord brought forth through His servant and prophet, Randy Chandler, a divinely inspired word in our Friday night glory service that went deep into my spirit. As I have meditated on it and brought it before the Lord in prayer this morning as I lay before Him, the Lord began to speak to me and expand it. I would like to share it with you as it was processed through my heart, mind and spirit. This is what the Spirit of the Lord has spoken to me.
In the position of a "laid down lover", the position of total surrender, submission and dependence upon Jesus, the Lover of our soul, in the position of humility and complete yieldedness, we come before Him as a living sacrifice, holy and acceptable to God, which is our reasonable service of worship, that we might not be conformed to this world, but that we would be transformed by the renewing of our minds so that we might know the good and acceptable and perfect will of God. In this lowly position of a "laid down lover", we are even yet partakers of the divine nature of God, the divine nature of the Creator of the universe, the Creator of heaven and earth, the Creator of the human man with all his intricate, detailed and miraculous bodily parts and functions. In this surrendered and dependent position, our Creator, the One that created and birthed us into this world, and the One that then re-birthed us once again by His very breathe and Spirit into the kingdom of God, has given us and placed within us the inheritance of His divine nature, the ability to create with our spoken words just as He did "in the beginning" when He said, "Let there be light" and there was light. We receive this divine nature, and in this divine nature our God and Creator has given us, as His children, the ability to create wealth that He may establish His covenant with us. He has given us the ability to hear His voice, to know His mind and to speak forth His will and purpose into our lives to create this wealth and to manifest His Word. In this place of dependence He gives us divinely inspired ideas to create wealth.
As we worship God, acknowledging His divinity, His power, His greatness and His majesty, as we worship Him and wrap out lives around all that He is and all that He has done and all that He is able to do, as we worship Him just because He is worthy, as the prophetic word that was spoken last night says, "we begin to stir up His creative juices", we begin to stir up the heart of God to create. As we worship we stir up the Lord, our God and Creator, to create in and for us what we need to walk out and fulfill His divine purpose and plan for us. We are not in a place of striving and "making it happen" as the world would do, but we are in a position of worship, of submission and total dependence, a position of a "laid down lover" totally embraced by the Lover of our soul, totally taken in by His love and majesty, totally yielded and surrendered to His will and purpose, yet totally empowered to create with our spoken word the words of life and blessing that He has for us.
This is a place where the miraculous happens, a place where God receives all the glory, a place where His Word and will is revealed to our spirit, because our flesh and human nature, our talents and abilities are laid down. They've been laid on the altar of sacrifice to be consumed by His fire. They've been submitted and surrendered to Him so that all that would be done and all that would come forth would be of Him. It's in this secret place, this place under the shadow of His wings, this place in the cleft of the rock, this place that's hidden in Him that we are able to be used of Him, the Creator God, to partner with Him in creating the miraculous, to be His instrument of divine creativity. It's in this place of a "laid down lover" that the Lover of our soul begins to share with us His secrets and empowers us to speak and cause them to manifest in the natural.
O how He wants us to discover this place. How He desires for us to come out from among them and be separate, to hide ourselves in Him, to embrace the love and place of His divine communion with Him. I believe Jesus is inviting us today to this place, this secret place of our prayer closet, this secret place of separation unto Him. I believe His is drawing us into His heart so that we may hear the secrets of His heart and know His purpose in our lives, so that He may empower us to speak forth those things that He desires to manifest in our lives, and so that He may manifest the covenant of His blessings in our lives through His "creative juices". I believe the Spirit of God is saying "Come away with Me. Come into My secret place. Come into My bridal chamber that I may love you as you have never been loved before, that I may share My secrets with you. You are My beloved. You are the apple of My eye. You are My precious jewel and pearl of great price. Come. Come. Come away with Me into My secret chamber."
