I posted the dream on Fertile Soil yesterday when I had the revelation of it. It was nothing like I had expected. I had, in fact, written it totally different when I began to rearrange the words I had typed and when I finished it wasn’t at all what I had expected. It wouldn’t leave my mind about why I was cooking for the people waiting on the pastor and why I was so frustrated that he wouldn’t speak to them. The Lord answered me at 3:00am this morning. The Lord woke me at 3:00 am to tell me that my frustration lately in finding time for Him was that I was being a Martha. I had felt He’d been telling me lately ‘you are troubled about much’. Sometimes I feel those thoughts are mine so I don’t stop to sit before Him so He can finish speaking.
So the pastor was being a Mary. Fertile soil comes from being a Mary, not a Martha. Verses 41-42 of Luke 10 reads, ‘Martha, Martha, you are worried and upset about many things, but few things are needed-or indeed only one. Mary has chosen what is better, and it will not be taken away from her’.
Being a Martha while receiving the Word will make us soon forget the Word received. Hence the battle weariness I had felt. Our time is the best gift. God bless you as you sit with Jesus
