Time to Recalibrate: End of the Year~2012

Ezekiel 36: 26-27 "I will give you a new heart and put a new spirit within you; I will take the heart of stone out of your flesh and give you a heart of flesh. I will put My Spirit within you and cause you to walk in My statutes and you will keep My judgments and do them. Then you shall dwell in the land that I gave to your fathers; you shall be My people, and I will be your God."

As we come to the close of 2012, there is not one person who can honestly say that this has not been a year where the Sovereign Father has been establishing His divine governmental order. From the beginning of January up to this very moment, God has been working out front and behind the scenes strategically aligning and setting order within the earth. Whether you personally embraced or rejected what the Father has been doing during this year, the word of God tells us in Philippians 2:10 "that at the name of Jesus every knee should bow, in heaven and on earth and under the earth." So if, you have been slow to flow and walk in unison and obedience to His personal instructions for your life, you still have a little time left to do so.

While in the spirit on December 8th, I saw myself praying and interceding for a group of people. As I prayed for this particular group, Father began to reveal that there was a need for the people to recalibrate in order to get back in tune with His divine purpose and original plan for their lives. As first partaker, of any vision or word released to me, I immediately reflected on the areas in my life where I needed to make some adjustments as well. Following is divine wisdom shared to help you to recalibrate in the coming weeks.

The word calibration is described in the Free Dictionary as:

Noun 1.calibration - the act of checking or adjusting (by comparison with a standard) the accuracy of a measuring instrument; "the thermometer needed calibration"
activity - any specific behavior; "they avoided all recreational activity"
tuning - (music) calibrating something (an instrument or electronic circuit) to a standard frequency readjustment, adjustment, registration - the act of adjusting something to match a standard

As we can see, in order to properly calibrate, an instrument would have to be checked or adjusted in order to match a given standard. The given standard for which the instrument is being measured can vary of course due to the type of instrument being used. To understand a little more about the given standard in the calibration process, we first would have to ask ourselves these questions: 1. Who designed the standards in which the instrument is being measured by? and 2. How are these specific standards met?

In order to answer these questions, we would first have to gain insight on how the calibration process works. "The calibration process begins with the design of the measuring instrument that needs to be calibrated. The design has to be able to "hold a calibration" through its calibration interval. In other words, the design has to be capable of measurements that are "within engineering tolerance" when used within the stated environmental conditions over some reasonable period of time. Having a design with these characteristics increases the likelihood of the actual measuring instruments performing as expected. 

The exact mechanism for assigning tolerance values varies by country and industry type. The measuring equipment manufacturer generally assigns the measurement tolerance, suggests a calibration interval and specifies the environmental range of use and storage. The using organization generally assigns the actual calibration interval, which is dependent on this specific measuring equipment's likely usage level. A very common interval in the United States for 8–12 hours of use 5 days per week is six months. That same instrument in 24/7 usage would generally get a shorter interval. The assignment of calibration intervals can be a formal process based on the results of previous calibrations."


Now we can go back to answer the two questions which were posed earlier. After reading how the calibration process works we can now see that 1. The using organization (United States) is the one who assigns the actual calibration interval in the above description, and 2. The measuring equipment manufacturer assigns the measurement tolerance for which the instrument is to be measured by.

So, how does all of this information translate over into the Spirit? First, the Sovereign Father is of course viewed as the equipment manufacturer who assigned the measurement for tolerance. Secondly, the using organization who assigns the calibration intervals would be none other than the precious Holy Spirit. And finally, we the people of God (vessels) can be viewed as the instruments which go through the initial calibration process and the periodic recalibrations that follow.

As instruments of God when did we first get calibrated?

We received our initial calibration when we were created and designed by the very hand of the Sovereign Father.

How do we know when it's time to go in to be recalibrate?

When, our instrument (body) can no longer measure or give an accurate reading of the environment we are designed to bring balance to, it's time to recalibrate. 

To get to a place where we are truly aligned and in sync with the Sovereign Father, we must first embrace and obediently participate in this process. Several years ago I worked for a company which did infrared thermography for companies and systems all over the world. One of my job assignments was to send out equipment which was scheduled for monthly or bi-monthly calibration. Interesting to note, sometimes the company that did the calibration would call back to the office to say, that they could not calibrate a particular instrument because there was a non working part or something was broken. It was at that moment that a decision had to be made to replace the inoperable part, otherwise they would send it back and we would place it in our defective pile. 

For the times that I missed sending something out, I would have to place a note on the instrument to let the engineers know that an instrument could not be used that month because it would produce an inaccurate reading. The same holds true for the people of God. If there is something on the inside of us broken or inoperable, it is imperative that we embrace the instructions received from the Holy Spirit. Once we follow our instructions and allow for some inner work to be done, we are now recalibrated and can be used by God for His glory. 

It is my prayer that what has been shared has not only enlightened you but has spiritually provoked you to move into action to get back in realignment and in sync with the Sovereign Father. As the scripture from Ezekiel 36:26-27 reads, "I will give you a new heart and put a new spirit within you; I will take the heart of stone out of your flesh and give you a heart of flesh. I will put My Spirit within you and cause you to walk in My statutes, and you will keep My judgments and do them. Then you shall dwell in the land that I gave to your fathers; you shall be My people, and I will be your God."

Merry Christmas and Blessings for a glorious New Year in the Lord!

Today, if you desire to know the Lord as your personal savior, please pray the following prayer

Prayer of Salvation

I repent of all of my sins and right now I do confess that Jesus is the Son of God and that He died for the remission of my sins. I believe that Jesus died and was buried and rose again, and is now seated at the right hand of God in Heaven. I receive Him now as Lord of my life and I now commit to serve him for the rest of my days.

It’s in Jesus’ name I do pray, Amen.

If you have just prayed this prayer and want more information about beginning your new life as a Christian, please write us, we will be happy to send you a free booklet.
