The Lady and the couple Heir and Dearest had known each other going on their fifth year. A situation which should have only lasted a few months turned into years and patience was wearing thin for all parties. Dearest wanted answers, everyone involved wanted answers. The breakthrough should have happened already. Today, tomorrow, next week, next month, and anyday now were the words each of the people who had cross paths with the Lady and remained around her would hear. Whether for a short period or on a continual basis. Everyone was waiting for the promises she had made to them. All would serve the Lady for the length of there endurance. None had known they were under testing and trials. Testing and trials set forth for all who were under selection by the Lord Himself. The test was, to choose either God or mammon!
a Chaldee or Syriac word meaning “wealth” or “riches” ( Luke 16:9-11 ); also, by personification, the god of riches ( Matthew 6:24 ; Luke 16:9-11 ).
The Lady had waited and waited for what she thought was Gods promises to her. She had a different perception of God then most. She was an interesting character, knowing how to get what she wanted, knowing what to say to who and how to shape the story to work for her. Each person would hear a slightly different rendition of her story depending on who they were. There were too many characters in her life from all sorts. Some were from the Christian family of all levels of maturity and then others were business associates who knew what she had, others knew what she had and tried to still, kill and destroy. Doesn’t that sound far too familiar.
When the couple met her for the first time they knew this was an appointment from the Lord. Whether anyone excepts this truth or not, it is not the issue here…but everyone came because they had heard either thru her or someone else that she had access to a plethora of assets.
This was the bait that would lure the different fishes, some were caught and then thrown back into the sea, then others were caught and frozen, and others were selected caught, cleaned, and ready for the chef to cook and be served. Served to who?
The couple had walked with the Lord and served in His kingdom together for many years and had been through many test and trials regarding this subject. One of the test many years beforehand had taught them well. They had learned that whenever they were tested on this particular subject, what ever the degree was, they had to walk with integrity of heart and see the true purpose of the test, which at most times was difficult. But they chose to guard their mouths and heart in this situation. They had seen many come and go. They had seen the greedy, they saw the sharks, leeches, and all the others who were to be involved in the great selection process. They learned and did their part to serve the Lady in whatever was needed. Through it they learned to love this Lady, to see beyond the drama of it all and it was sure a nightmare at some points. The relationship these three had built had become somewhat solid, yet the Lady could trust no one, she knew what she went through all the past years and many had hurt her when they called themselves her friend. Caution was the light that blinked continuously in front of her.
At the fifth year of there relationship the repercussions of many things in the Lady’s life began to show itself and it was getting fiery. Before this point it had been quiet and slow paced, almost too slow, causing weariness to come to all who had been involved.
It was time to seriously pray on the matter, but how much prayer and how many times could one go to the Heavenly Father and pray the same thing over and over again? Now Dearest wanted answers and only God could bring forth the truth to her. She had known that she was in the right place and positioning with God, yet it seemed strange that the breakthrough was not happening. Did she miss God totally? She had checked her own heart attitude towards all this and had gone before God to help her see the truth over this situation.
Dearest and Heir had come to love the Lady, her childlike perception, her intelligence and life experience which was of rarity, the way she enjoyed colors and her fashion statement made her so different then others that Dearest had met. The Lady was such a colorful person, had such an extraordinary life and she came in the name of the Lord Jesus, that was what mattered to couple, they knew they were placed with the Lady to be her friend, whether in the end they benefited from ‘the situation’ or not.
The couple soon would find out the truth of the matter from God Himself what and where ‘the situation’ really stood. God would bring clarity so that they would be able to position themselves properly. The seekers had been approved by God to commune with Him on this matter and for sure God would bring clarity and truth that would set them free from anything that was not from Him.
