FATHER Takes Responsibility

By THE SPIRIT it is written in Deuteronomy chapter 30:

6 “Moreover the LORD your God will circumcise your heart and the heart of your descendants, to love the LORD your God with all your heart and with all your soul, so that you may live.

7 The LORD your God will inflict all these curses on your enemies and on those who hate you, who persecuted you.

8 And you shall again obey the LORD, and observe all His commandments which I command you today.

9 Then the LORD your God will prosper you abundantly in all the work of your hand, in the offspring of your body and in the offspring of your cattle and in the produce of your ground, for the LORD will again rejoice over you for good, just as He rejoiced over your fathers;

10 if you obey the LORD your God to keep His commandments and His statutes which are written in this book of the law, if you turn to the LORD your God with all your heart and soul.

FATHER has taken on the responsibility to circumcise your and my heart so it takes the pressure away from each of us to perform this crucial surgery.  After all, HE is the best surgeon one could hope for.  Our part is to obey HIS Word and we will do so when we trust HIS Word over man’s words and systems.  Can man save us from destruction?  No.  Does man have perfect knowledge to heal us of incurable diseases? No.  Who else can we place our trust in but FATHER?  How difficult did FATHER make it for us to comply with HIS request?  He answers:

11 “For this commandment which I command you today is not too difficult for you, nor is it out of reach.

12 It is not in heaven, that you should say, ‘Who will go up to heaven for us to get it for us and make us hear it, that we may observe it?’

13 Nor is it beyond the sea, that you should say, ‘Who will cross the sea for us to get it for us and make us hear it, that we may observe it?’

14 But the word is very near you, in your mouth and in your heart, that you may observe it.

There is such simplicity in the Gospel that we should not try to add anything to what FATHER expects.  Man’s ego would create a secondary set of criteria to make sure only the “elite” could comply.  The ego wants and promotes division.  Love simply wants to be a blessing to others and bring forth unity in all areas of life.  Men constantly look to judge what is wrong with each of us rather than embracing our differences as being necessary to our calling.  We should not be trying to force everyone into our view or perspective.  FATHER may have others on a mission which is totally outside our vision and frame of reference.  We need to be grateful for where FATHER has placed us on this earth and quit trying to convince HIM otherwise.  HE will open doors and close them as HE sees fit and I am thankful for that when looking back over my own personal history.  Those doors needed closing or else my family would be suffering greater challenges than what is necessary for growth.  FATHER has taken on the responsibility for my circumcision and I see no need for anyone else to act as a substitute.
