For this track, The Press, we will focus on Isaiah 8:11 KJV
For the LORD spake thus to me with a strong hand, and instructed me that I should not walk in the way of this people, saying, Say ye not, A confederacy, to all them to whom this people shall say, A confederacy; neither fear ye their fear, nor be afraid.
Against the pressures that come to bear on an individual, public opinion is usually directly opposed to the instruction the adrenals are supposed to give. What God is saying here is, 'Listen to me. You are not to parrot what you hear in the culture. You are not to repeat the fear nor the denial that is all around you. Do not over estimate nor under estimate. Your focus is on me as the only thing you are allowed to fear.'
When there is a fear of the Lord, your instruction will be a safe place. You will be able to solve problems correctly. The fear of the Lord is not destructive or damaging or devouring to your adrenals, even though it may be overpowering as John and Daniel discovered. It is not a destructive thing as is the fear of man.
The multitude of info coming in is the reason God made the adrenals to do their work at night. During the day we are bombarded with social media input from the culture as to what is going on, what might go on. The speculations are on a global basis telling you what the world is thinking. Most of the time they are wrong.
This cacophony of instruction form the culture is a liability to us and at night whilst lying in bed when our ears and conscious mind is not engaged processing the nattering of the culture, it is the adrenals and kidneys that get to come to bat to filter out and challenge and overrule the massive information the culture has provided and redirect our thinking around the fear of the Lord only. No fear of man, our culture, economy, outside nations or terrorists with bombs. Just the fear of the Lord.
It will be interesting for those of you who have had a fear based world view since childhood, those who grew up with trauma filled situations never able to sleep deeply at night, to have a discussion with your adrenals and kidneys before you go to sleep challenging them to focus on the fear of the Lord not the fear imprinted 30 years ago or the fear that is pressing arounds the edges.
Adrenals and kidneys, I call you to attention in the name of the Lord and I challenge you to come into alignment with God's design for you. God's design is for you tonight to focus on the fear of the of the Lord and the covenant of the Lord and for you to overrule the other input that is going on. It is YOUR job adrenals to overrule those things that scared me as a child and YOUR job to overrule all the fear based stuff that came in today (you might articulate what those things are).
Adrenals, I command you in the name of the Lord to give my whole being wise instruction tonight. I command you to overrule the wrong messages and to take charge of the body to do what you were made to do and to refocus my entire being around the fear of the Lord in the night watches so I can sleep deeply and recharge my tank.
I bless you adrenal and kidneys with functioning during the night doing your amazing and beautiful work of reframing todays and tomorrows issues around covenant, solving problems based on the fear of the Lord not the fear of man.
I bless you in Jesus name.
Having listened to this track, The Press, what are your thoughts and emotions that bubble up? How do you relate to what is being described?
It certainly is a challenge to filter out the cacophony of voices we are daily bombarded with especially with our social media venues good and bad. We cannot expect our adrenals to do their work if we are not working towards doing ours. Namely, getting our heads out of 'the cloud'. Are you making steps toward a more healthy breathing space where there isn't a continual noise? What does that look like for you?
Using the above model, have you experienced any results? What shifts or movement can you continue to explore here?
We would love to hear from you
