Doug Addison's prophetic word for October certainly goes along with what God has been speaking to me these past few days As I mentioned a few posts ago, Bill Johnson's goal of not holding any thought in his mind that Jesus wouldn't hold in His was a great inspiration for me. I have been checking my thoughts to this standard all week. A wonderful measuring stick!
Then today I read the word for Oct 9 in Jesus Calling--"You have been on a long, uphill journey, and your energy is almost spent. Though you have faltered at times, you have not let go of My hand. I am pleased with your desire to stay close to Me. There is one thing, however, that displeases Me: your tendency to complain. You may talk to Me as much as you like about the difficulty of the path we are following. I understand better than anyone else the stresses and strains that have afflicted you. You can ventilate safely to Me, because talking with Me tempers your thoughts and helps you see things from Myt perspective. Complaining to others is another matter altogether. It opens the door to deadly sins such as self-pity and rage. Whenever you are tempted to grumble, come to Me and talk it out. As you open up to Me, I will put My thoughts in your mind and My song in your heart."
And then I opened my email to receive this prophetic word. It seems what we think is very important to God! He especially hates grumbling and complaining!
