#5790 – Deliver the Mail

Good morning people who receive from the Father and pass it on to others.

Matthew 10:19-20 NIV “But when they arrest you, do not worry about what to say or how to say it. At that time you will be given what to say, for it will not be you speaking, but the Spirit of your Father speaking through you.”

Because I always want to handle the word of God correctly, I want to acknowledge that what I am about to say is not what this scripture is talking about in context. Upon that clarification, Father highlighted this scripture in relation to the truth I’m about to share. Please read on.

Let’s talk about the prophetic for a moment. In fact, let’s talk about anything Father gives us for others, be it a prophetic word, a word of encouragement or wisdom, or a word of knowledge.

The picture I see is of a mail delivery person. The key word here is delivery.

This person is not the author or originator of the mail. They didn’t write the letter; they are not responsible for the content. Nor did they choose the font size or style or any other key identifying factors of the mail that is being delivered.

It is important to note that this delivery person is also not responsible for what the recipient does once the mail is delivered. A postman does not hang around at a house to ensure that the mail is immediately opened and actioned (if action is required).

A mail delivery person receives mail from one source and delivers it untouched and in its pure form to another person. And this is exactly what we are called to do when passing a message on from Father to people.

We are not the author of the mail or the enforcer of those who receive the mail. We simply receive it and pass it on. We don’t amend the mail. We don’t critique the mail.

But nor do we add to the mail or take away from the mail – now this is an important point. We don’t think that God hasn’t said enough and that He needs a little help to pad out and expand His small contribution. But conversely, we don’t cut out the parts of the mail that we think are insignificant or not necessary.

It’s time to reclaim purity in the gifts of the Spirit of God. Remember, they are the gifts of God. They are not our gifts, and the mail is not our mail. Receive it and pass it on – that’s our responsibility.
