“UNTIE MY HANDS”

Thought for Today: UNTIE MY HANDS

There is something that you are believing God to do for you. You know that God can do anything, but yet you are still struggling in your faith. And you wonder why it is so hard for you to believe that God will do this.

And the Holy Spirit of God says to you, “The reason that you are struggling with Me doing this one thing is because you have a preconceived idea of how you think I am going to answer your request. And this hidden mindset prevents Me from being who I AM.”

Here, meditate on this for a moment. Isaiah 46:9-10 says, “REMEMBER THE FORMER THINGS OF OLD; FOR I AM GOD, AND THERE IS NONE ELSE; I AM GOD AND THERE IS NONE LIKE ME. DECLARING THE END FROM THE BEGINNING, AND FROM ANCIENT TIMES THE THINGS THAT ARE NOT YET DONE SAYING MY COUNSEL SHALL STAND AND I WILL DO ALL MY PLEASURE.”

God is saying to you “UNTIE MY HANDS, it’s rare that I will ever answer your prayers how you thought I should. For My thoughts are not your thoughts, neither are your ways My ways,” saith the LORD. “For as the heavens are higher than the earth, so are My ways higher than your ways and My thoughts than your thoughts” (Isaiah 55:8-9). UNTIE MY HANDS 

“Behold, I will do a new thing; now it shall spring forth; shall ye not know it? I will even make a way in the wilderness and rivers in the desert” (Isaiah 43:9). UNTIE MY HANDS 

“Be still and know that I am God; I will be exalted among the heathen, I will be exalted in the earth” (Psalms 46:10). UNTIE MY HANDS.  

“Ah LORD GOD! Behold thou hast made the heaven and the earth by thy great power and stretched out arm, and THERE IS NOTHING TOO HARD FOR THEE” (Jeremiah 32:17). UNTIE MY HANDS.  

By you UNTYING THE HANDS OF GOD you allow God to be God. Your preconceived ideas of how you think God will answer your prayers ties up the hands of God. And God is saying to you “UNTIE MY HANDS.”  

You may be asking, “How do I UNTIE GODS’ HANDS, Pastor Erick? How do I change the way that I think God is going to answer my prayers?” I am going to give you the knife that will cut the ropes that has your mind tied up on how you think God is going to answer your prayers.  

I DON’T KNOW.  

“What do you mean you don’t know, Pastor Erick?” What I am saying to you is this, when the thoughts of how you think God is going to answer your prayers come to mind, you need to stop right where you are and say “I DON’T KNOW.” I don’t know HOW God is going to show up, I don’t know WHEN God is going to show up, I don’t know WHO or WHAT God will use to answer my prayers. I just trust Him to be God.  

When you have the I DON’T KNOW mindset, this unties the hands of God and allows God to be God how He sees fit. It will allow God to do ALL HIS PLEASURE as seen in Isaiah 46:10.

For it is written, “And Moses said the people among whom I am are six hundred thousand footman, and thou (You, oh Lord) said I will give them flesh that they may eat a whole month. Shall the flocks and the herds be slain for them, to suffice them or shall all the fish of the sea be gathered together for them to suffice them (is this how you are going to answer our prayers) And the Lord said unto Moses IS THE LORDS HAND WAXED SHORT? (UNTIE MY HANDS) THOU SHALT SEE NOW WHETHER MY WORD SHALL COME TO PASS UNTO THEE OR NOT” (Numbers 11:21-23).  

The last thing the enemy of your soul wants to hear come out of your mouth is I DON’T KNOW how God is going to be God, simply because that mindset UNTIES THE HANDS OF GOD and allows God to show up how He sees fit. Grab the knife of I DON’T KNOW today, which will UNTIE THE HANDS OF GOD, and watch the glory of God blow you up. 

Be Blessed
