CONFESSION

A NEW DISPOSITION

…FATHER, Your Son walked the earth in meekness and was lowly in heart (Matt 11:29). He always surrendered His own will to You (John 6:38). “When he was reviled, he did not revile in return; when he suffered, he did not threaten…” (1 Peter 2:23 ESV). He never stood up for His own rights, never returned wrong for a wrong, never resented, never complained.

“Self-energy…in service is sin. Self-pity in…difficulties, self-seeking in business or Christian work, self-indulgence in one’s spare time,…self-defense when we are hurt…by others, self-consciousness…” Oswald Chambers (ref#97, p28,29) are all sin.

“Let every mention of the Blood call to mind the deep humility and self-surrender of the Lamb, for it is this disposition that gives the Blood its wonderful power with God” Roy Hession (ref#97, p94). “We may be partakers of His disposition, for it has been made transferable to us by His death” Roy Hession (ref#97, p95,96). And this disposition is what you look for in me. By having this disposition I will know power in my own life.

“The natural life is neither moral nor immoral. I make it moral or immoral by my ruling disposition. Jesus teaches that the natural life is meant for sacrifice. We can give it as a gift to God, which is the only way to make it spiritual (see Rom 12:1-2)” Oswald Chambers (ref#118, p36).

CONFESSION

INTUITION

“As the power of man’s intellect searches out things pertaining to man, so does our mind by the power of the Holy Spirit understand heavenly things” Geneva Notes (ref#67, [1 Cor 2:11]).

“To know things in our intuition is what the Bible calls revelation. Revelation has no other meaning than that the Holy Spirit enables a believer to apprehend a particular matter…” Watchman Nee (ref#101, p77).

The definition of “intuition” is— “…learning of something without the conscious use of reasoning…” Watchman Nee (ref#110, p709). Kenneth S. Wuest’s, The New Testament, An Expanded Translation, talks of Christians as having a “instinctive perception” of You, FATHER (ref#37, [John 15:15] p252).

I am a subject of the teaching of the HOLY SPIRIT; He makes known truths to me by His illumination (ref#16, [1 Cor 2:10]). His spiritual sensing impinges on me directly without reason or cause (ref#101, p71). This makes it unnecessary to ask for the opinion of others or even to question myself (ref#101, p74). And, the moment I cease to follow my intuition at that very moment I begin to walk after the flesh and end up mingling spiritual things with things of the flesh (ref#101, p31).

“Walking after the spirit involves both the initiation of a work by revelation and execution of it through the Lord’s strength” Watchman Nee (ref#101, p30).

FATHER, give me faith enough to follow Your voice in my heart.
