Some of My people wonder why some important promise they’ve received from Me doesn’t come to pass at the time or in the way they think it will. The reason lies not with the heavenly Transmitter, but with the receiver.
Remember what it was like watching an old black and white TV? Some days the picture was much clearer than others. Other times you got a rolling picture or fuzzy reception because the next-door neighbor was running power tools or there was a thunderstorm scrambling the signal. And noisy static would make the program impossible to hear.
This can be likened to the resistance of evil spirits which inhabit the earth’s atmosphere. Satan is called ‘the prince of the power of the air’. He reasons that if he is not able to keep My people from hearing from Me, the very least he can do is distort their understanding of what I am saying to them. Due to the resistance of evil spirits Daniel the prophet had to pray and fast for many days before an answer to an important prayer petition was able to get through to him. Pray that I will send warring angels to fend off spirits of confusion which would hamper your personal ministry in the things of the Kingdom of God.
The television has come a long way. Now you get perfect color pictures without any problem. In like manner, the day will come when you will no longer see “through a glass darkly” but your inner receiver will be perfected so that there will be nothing to interfere with receiving the perfect knowledge of the Holy. Never again will your tempestuous carnal nature be present to distort the reception of the signals I send you, but you will always perceive clearly what I am saying to you.
Here is another common sense word that inspires as well as comforts. Another reason why praying in tongues is so helpful. Then when our prayers "hit the ceiling" because of our carnal imperfections or the enemy`s interference, we can be sure that God hears from our spirit (heart) and that He will answer in His perfect timing - thank you Patricia - it`s a joy to read your wise and discerning articles.
