Laying Down the Idols
There's so much within this time of what Holy Spirit is doing but one of the main opportunities He's drawing to those with 'ears to hear' (which speaks of the availability of the heart) is becoming humbled before Him with a sincere heart of repentance for ourselves (not finger pointing and nitpicking at other people's shortcomings). He's allowing us the quiet and personal time (it's our choice if we bring in petty distractions during this time such as media and so on) to acknowledge the oh-so-many idols we've been holding onto and in so doing, now turn away from them - truly recognizing them for what they are. We cannot manifest the true kingdom in it's fullness while compromising ourselves and being influenced with idols of this world. It's truly a small sacrifice to make in comparison to the reward at hand and the far-reaching impact it will have.
John 17:(14) "I have given them your message and that is why the unbelieving world hates them. For their allegiance is no longer to this world because I am not of this world. (15) I am not asking that you remove them from the world, but I ask that you guard their hearts from evil,(16 )For they no longer belong to this world any more than I do. (17 )“Your Word is truth! So make them holy by the truth. (18) I have commissioned them to represent me just as you commissioned me to represent you.(19) And now I dedicate myself to them as a holy sacrifice so that they will live as fully dedicated to God and be made holy by your truth."
