You hardly ever see a setting hen flying around. You hardly ever see one singing and going around.
“O Jerusalem, how oft would I have hovered thee
As a hen hovers her brood, and ye would not.”
The hen will set on an egg. The hen is not flying around. When she is hatching she stays there until they are hatched, and after they are hatched she stays there with the chicks and leads them and guides them, and she will not even fly over the fence when she could fly over it. She will lead them and guide them and teach them how to go through the fence. She shows them the way they should go and lives with them; and as they advance, she advances the expression of herself to them that she may not be far away from them in their expression and manifestation of life. It is wonderful! She shows them the way. She teaches them how to scratch.
Truly might the hen have been as a point of view for the consideration of this great Kingdom of GOD.
“O Jerusalem, thou that persecutest the prophets, how oft would
I have hovered thee as a hen hovers her brood, and ye would not.”
I AM functioning in your world and just in the place or on the plane I will come to show you just beyond what is in your expression, that ye might see the way to go.
Oh, for a closer walk with GOD, a calm and a heavenly frame. It is a light that shines on the road. If the light was showing far before you, it would still be dark where you are at. Therefore, let your light shine on the road. It is a light on thy pathway and a lamp unto they feet.
