May 22 Command Your Lord
Lord, I claim Thy help.
Yes! Claim, be constantly claiming. There is a trust that waits long, and a trust that brooks no delay – that once convinced of the right of a course, once sure of God’s guidance, says with all the persistence of a child, “Now.” “Make no long tarrying, oh, my God.”
You are no longer servants but friends. A friend can command his friend – can know that all the friend, the true friend, has is his by right. That does not mean an idle living at the expense of a friend, but claiming the friend’s means: name, time, all that he has, when your supply is exhausted.
Friendship – true friendship, implies the right to appropriate. And in God’s service is perfect freedom. Heirs of God – you are joint heirs with Me in the inheritance. We share the Father’s property. You have the same right to use and claim I have. Use your right. A beggar supplicates. A son, a daughter, appropriates.
Small wonder when I see My children sitting before My House supplicating and waiting – that I leave them there until they realize how foolish such action, when they have only to walk into their Home and take.
This cannot be the attitude of all. There must be first a definite realization of Sonship.
Therefore I say unto you, What things soever ye desire,
when ye pray, believe that ye receive them
and ye shall receive them. Mark 11:24
