Blessed, Assurance: How To Know

The fearful heart will know and understand, and the stammering tongue will be fluent and clear. Is 32:4

When the day for the feast arrived, the host instructed his servant to notify all the invited guests and tell them, ‘Come, for everything is now ready for you!’ Luke 14:17

Who will bring any charge against those whom God has chosen? It is God who justifies. Romans 8:33

When I finally got around to taking writing a book seriously, these were the milestones that gave me the confirmation that it was all apart of a divine plan. I’d been writing, sending, and sharing pieces for a few years, but it wasn’t until I took a handful and published an electronic version that I saw the bigger picture.

I received the clear notification after a memorable conversation with my Grandmother that I needed to make a stronger effort to share what the Lord had placed on my heart. The feedback that these were helping people, families, friends, couples made up a large part of the justification after the fact. That there wasn’t something tangible that a segment of people could use to help them. For something to be justified, it might not always be beforehand, it may in fact come during or well after we expect.

What you’re reading is me giving you the testimony. There was a change that was preceded by notice, clarity, and justification. In order for me to testify, the path required me to get a heads up without distraction and a reason that would come when it was time.

A false witness will perish, but a careful listener will testify successfully. Prov 21:28

God operates in a way that at times extends beyond comprehension, yet always falls within compassion. CNJT is not a news network, it’s a manner of spiritual events. God is a clear God. What Christ was sent to do, clear. Ten commandments, clear. Human species, eh kinda murky. So our prayers ought to be clear, and God will respond clearly.

Notifications are big. Turning your notifications on is secondary nature from a technological standpoint, yet it’s not always so easy when separating the spiritual from the world. If a prayer is clear, the justification will be as well. If I’m seeking the purpose over my life to glorify Christ, I don’t have to justify it to the world. Pure intentions = justified and notified moves.
