My children, be grafted into the tree of life, not into the tree of knowledge. When you humble yourself completely, you take on My will and beliefs. Your attitudes and heart’s posture is one of tender receptive longing for all I have to say, want, and plan for. You refuse your own will and it’s feeling and beliefs because they distance you from My will and desires. Resting in your rights to have you feelings and opinions will cause you to miss my truths and mysteries. You become hardened and lose all sensibility. You can’t hear, see, or feel what my spirit is saying because you value your rights to feelings over My will to love and lead you. Living in your will makes you controlling and manipulative.
Turn to Romans 11:25 (AMP) “25 Lest you be self-opinionated (wise in your own conceits), I do not want you to miss this hidden truth and mystery, brethren: a hardening (insensibility) has [temporarily] befallen a part of Israel [to last] until the [a]full number of the ingathering of the Gentiles has come in”
Now let’s look at Romans 6:18 (AMP) “18 And having been set free from sin, you have become the servants of righteousness (of conformity to the divine will in thought, purpose, and action).”
Now turn to Romans 6:11 (AMP) “11 Even so consider yourselves also dead to sin and your relation to it broken, but alive to God [living in unbroken fellowship with Him] in Christ Jesus”
