Since a clear understanding of the word will give you a better understanding of the message the LORD would have conveyed in my previous Blog. Getting the sense of the depth of the matter will open your eyes to Father’s heart, thereby moving you into a Kingdom perspective!
“It is the glory of God to conceal a matter,
but the glory of kings to search out a matter.”…Proverbs 25:2
Father spoke this clearly to me to use the word complaisant, as it conveys a powerful point ….
The Father gave me this specific word...as it is very pointed in it’s meaning….
He was saying; We are too quick to just agree with prayers, ‘acquiesce in order to please’ and follow direction in “spiritless prayer lists”. Thus, without seeking Him first, we join in praying such spiritless dead prayers, never asking if this is really what He wants us to pray…Pleasing man and not Father God!

Complacent and complaisant are two words that are similar in pronunciation and that both come from the Latin verb complacere ‘to please,’ but in English do not mean the same thing. Complacent is the more common word and means ‘smug and self-satisfied’: after four consecutive championships, the team became complacent. Complaisant, on the other hand, means ‘willing to please’: the local people proved complaisant and cordial.
Hopefully this clears it up for you……
