Behind_the_Scenes_best.jpg

~ By Mary Lindow 


"Save me, O God! The water is up to my neck;
I am sinking in deep mud, and there is no solid ground;
I am out in deep water, And the waves are about to drown me.
I am worn out from calling for help, and my throat is aching. I have strained my eyes, looking for your help." ~Psalm 69:1-3 

 

THERE ARE SO MANY THINGS GOING ON IN THE HEARTS OF GOD'S PEOPLE! 

Many believers have gone through pain and devastation because of betrayal and disappointment in those with whom they have at one time “walked with” in the Lord. 

“For it is not an enemy who reproaches me;  Then I could bear it.
 
Nor is it one that hates me who has exalted himself against me;

Then I could hide from him.
 

But it was you, a man my equal,
 My companion and my acquaintance.
 We took sweet counsel together,
 And walked to the house of God among the people.”

~Psalm 55:12-14 

 

 LEVELS OF SEPARATION AND DECEPTION 


Church leaders and members or friends often separate. Their unresolved issues and wounds infect others around them. With their tongue and pen, (and Facebook posts) their resentment and bitterness spread in uncontrollable proportions.
Christians in other ministries and relationships receive the bad report and often, they don't even know the people involved but - because they have leaned their ears to hear the suggested and well-placed evil reports, the conversation poisons them like toxic waste in their soul. If unchecked, this becomes a hideous, malignant cancer-like cell eventually damaging their mind and above all, their spiritual discernment.


“Who is wise? He will realize these things.

Who is discerning? He will understand them.

The ways of the LORD are right;

The righteous walk in them, But the rebellious stumble in them."

~Hosea 14:9 

The age-old serpent, the ultimate enemy of our souls, has not lost the art of deception even after centuries! He, even now, can cause God's people, including the sincere ones, to miss the mark if they are willing to only hear one side of a story! 


THE GREAT “OCCUPY SOMETHING” MOVEMENT 

The “frenzied entitlement culture” we are seeing hold their protests as a result of selfishness and feeding upon fear, have begun to reach a newly fevered pitch. 

People are “herding” their way into public venues to protest Whatever they may be angry at in the moment, and mostly remaining ignorant as to what or who is really driving and orchestrating the events, reflects the hardness of heart and disrespect for the needs and lives of those around them, 

This type of behavior is a prime example of even how believers have become “selectively “ hard of hearing when it comes to serving one another, or encouraging one another, or having patience with one another!  

One moment we are asking for forgiveness and prayer, and in nearly the next breath, slanderous retorts are spoken out in anger and those driving the malicious train, mean to use others as their well placed pawns of destruction.


"Get rid of all bitterness, rage and anger, Fighting and slander,

Along with every form of nastiness." Ephesians 4:31


Once bitter words are spoken or written, they cannot be retracted. Sadly, those who often shout the loudest about being maligned are often the perpetrators of assassinating the characters of those whom have been in disagreement with them or who have possibly warned them about a need for a course correction.

“He who conceals his hatred has lying lips,

And whoever spreads slander is a fool.” Proverbs 10:18


TODAY MANY THINGS HAVE DEGENERATED INTO BLURRED INSIGNIFICANCE  AND UNCERTAINTY. 

The beauty of what God's purpose in His people really is meant to passionately reflect is - missing. Things that are now being said and done do not mean what they did mean originally in His Word. Twisting of truth to fits one’s own idea of God’s will has become acceptable and is often left unchallenged. So many spiritual and scriptural terms are put into motion, but they are not in the same dimension and point of view, which are in the Divine plan! 

The tragedy is that so many well-meaning believers have gone on with the outward appearance of searching for the will of the Lord, and yet they fail to see that the power of His radiant life is missing! 

The Apostle Paul warned us in his letter to Timothy about this…. " This know also that in the last days perilous times shall come… ...Having the form of godliness (true religion) but denying the power there of. "

 

MY HEART IS BROKEN TO SEE THINGS AS THEY ARE HAPPENING ALL AROUND US 

So much is falling short of its original blueprint. There is so much labor and "rallying" being pumped out there into the minds and hearts of people and it is being poured into the “Self Promotion Machine" more than any time in the history of God's people! Yet the toil is ending in heartbreaking disappointment!

Saints, only those devoted to humility and honor can be saved from this deadly poison that lulls those longing to be entertained and pampered into apathy and spiritual powerlessness! 

God's faithful people in this hour should seek Him and that which is upon His heart. What the Lord is doing in this era is so different, and we should be sensitive to Him! 

He is looking for His “People of the Secret Place” in which the power of resurrection may freely function. 

The Apostle Paul said "according to the power that works in us" (Ephesians 3:20b). 

These “People” will have to be men and women who have “seen”! They shall be like "a voice in the wilderness". 


IT IS BECOMING INCREASINGLY CLEAR THAT GOD MUST DO A FRESH THING WITH HIS FOLLOWERS. 

And that actual “thing” is that He is drawing them to seek the Lord Himself and His recognizable presence! Away from the throng,
nearer to the Word, bowed in repentance and prayer. 

The Psalmist said, "When You said oh Lord, Seek My face; My heart said unto You, Your face, Lord will I seek." 

 

WILL YOU SET YOUR HEART TO SEEK HIM? 

Oh that God may find His Davids in this crucial hour that will set their faces towards Him at the command of His voice! Without it, the Human race will continue its fall and decline into further confusion, tragedy, and self-preservation. 

“Man’s goings are of the LORD;

How can a man then understand his own way?” ~ Proverbs 20:2 

It’s easy to say, “give your cares to the Lord and trust Him” when everything in life seems to be going well.  It’s easy to say, “I trust you Lord with everything I own” when bills are paid on time and when you just got a promotion at work. 

However, if God striped you of everything you own; If God told you to leave the very job that’s paying your bills, will you trust the Lord enough to do it?  Will you trust God even when you don’t understand; even when life hurts?  

If God told you to leave the familiar and enter the unfamiliar, will you trust Him? 

For many of you, God has done just that.  

He has taken you from what’s “oh so familiar” and redirected your paths into the unfamiliar.  You don’t understand what’s happening in your life; what to do or where to go.  The only thing you know is that the Lord gave you a word (instruction, a promise, vision, etc.) and the only thing you have to hold on to is that word. 

I understand the feeling; you’re not alone.  


THERE IS ENCOURAGEMENT FOR YOU TODAY. 

Many things happen in our lives that we will never be able to explain or understand because God is orchestrating the events of our lives “behind the scenes” (read Job 1-2). Moreover, we cannot detect God physically (through our senses) and we cannot comprehend His plans. 

“But the hour cometh, and now is, When the true worshippers shall worship the Father in spirit and in truth: For the Father seeks such to worship him. God is a Spirit: And they that worship him must worship him in spirit and in truth.”

~ John 4:23-24


Therefore, since we cannot rely on our perception or our reasoning we must turn to something else that is more reliable if we are going to be able to remain calm in the midst of turmoil, to find rest during the storms of life we must rely on God’s knowledge instead of our own. 


“For my thoughts are not your thoughts, Neither are your ways my ways, saith the LORD. 

For as the heavens are higher than the earth, So are my ways higher than your ways, And my thoughts than your thoughts.”

~ Isaiah 55:8-9 

 

LET US RUN RIGHT NOW TO THE THRONE OF GRACE AND MERCY!

Now! While our hearts are freshly tenderized and troubled over the recent events in the earth!

Here is something to remember.  Man is fallible; we fall short and at times we’re unable to keep our promises.  Man can give you instructions that are misleading and imperfect. 
With God, none of these things are possible. God keeps His promises, God gives you right instructions according to His perfect will and He won’t mislead you.

No matter how much you don’t understand life as it is right now; no matter how uncomfortable it may seem or how hard it gets, don’t give up. 

If God is with you -  the same God who spoke life into you, the same God who IS and knows the beginning and the end, the same God who knew you before the foundation of this world -is with you, then ask yourself who or WHAT can stand against you.

 

CONSIDER THE SOURCE AND SEEK TO BE OBEDIENT TO THE LORD

Even when you don t understand what God is doing in your life; don’t worry about “this or that” because God has provisions for you.

There is the safe voice of the Father calling us. Let us respond with ears to Hear and hearts that obey.

“Let us then approach the throne of grace with confidence, so that we may receive mercy and find grace to help us in our time of need.”

~Hebrews 4:16

By Mary Lindow


Beloved. 

The Lord has prepared us for this season. 

He wants us to focus on the path ahead of us. 

The refining is painful but brings correction and is beautiful at the end.

Psalm 16: 11 says
You have made known to me the path of life;
you will fill me with joy in your presence,
with eternal pleasures at your right hand.

Psalm 17:3
You have tried my heart;
You have visited me by night;
You have tested me and You find nothing;
I have purposed that my mouth will not transgress.

THE LORD WANTS US TO KNEEL
...Before him in repentance, for it rids us of our self-focus. Light comes when we are delivered from ourselves!

Psalm 36:9
For with You is the fountain of life;
In Your light we see light


THE LORD WANTS US TO PAY ATTENTION
...To our “eye gates.” What we look at.
Our hearts need to be locked into His gates.
He says, “Look to me!”
And His arms are the gates that are holding us.

Psalm 118 Vs 19
Open for me the gates of righteousness;
I will enter and give thanks to the LORD


HE WANTS US TO STAY IN THE INNER COURT

...And minister Him. He is wanting us to get to “Ground Zero.”
Go into it and let all things of the flesh melt.

Psalm 101:6
My eyes shall [look with favor]
upon the faithful of the land,
that they may dwell with me;
He/she who walks blamelessly,
He/she shall minister to me.

HE WANTS US TO BE DELIVERED
...From disappointments or the feeling of being unworthy

Psalm 34:4
I sought the LORD, and he answered me;
He delivered me from all my fears.

You see, it is fear that holds us back and fear that causes us to to feel paralyzed or paranoid and so we are not able to move ahead in:

Wisdom
Advancement
and
Reconciliation.

THE LORD IS CALLING US OUT TO RISK.
He will not fail us!
He will not cause us to stumble, but He will cause us to grow and mature into the saint that will cause people out in the world to want to listen to what we have to share.

If we act ashamed of the Gospel and we act religious, then people are not interested in what we have to say. Whatever “fresh thing” we think that we are bringing.

But when we have the sweet presence of God flowing out of our lives, when we have His grace and abundance, and mercy and kindness is expressed in actions and deeds of tremendous forgiveness, then the world is drawn to something tender and sweet. And it answers the hollowness of their own lives.

THE LORD WANTS US TO BE RESTING

...And praying.

He is using His “holy sandpaper” to get down to the beauty of the true wood in our lives.

Psalm 62:1
My soul finds rest in God alone;
My salvation comes from him.

Psalm 62: 5
Find rest, O my soul, in God alone;
My hope comes from him.

Dear Child of God.
I encourage you to understand that the pressure that you are under or perhaps even the sorrow or suffering that seems so unbearable, is not something that you need to consider as a punishment from the Lord.

It is He, driving us into a place where we are dependent upon Him only.
He allows the sorrows in order for us to find out just how weak we are in our own abilities, and how strong He is to deliver us.

I encourage you today to move into today what is known as WAR.

Wisdom

Knowing just what really is the Wisdom of God.
To seek it out and find it.

Advancement

What does it mean to move ahead into the deeper things of God? Usually, it means dying to our own pleasure, our own self, which seems to be a bit of a paradox compared to what we like to do. Thinking that if we produce more, we move ahead more. But the Lord says, “ He that humbles himself in My sight, I WILL raise up at the right time.

Reconciliation

The Lord desires for each of us that we would have a season of reconciliation. He desires that we would be brought back to a place of rest with those whom we may have been in strife with.

I encourage you that if there is anyone that you need to reconcile with or ask if you have in anyway offended them, go to them.

If they do not receive you well, know that the Lord will continue to work on your behalf deep within their heart.

LET US COME INTO A HOLY PLACE
...As this season of the Lord moves across the earth.
He is drawing His saints together to lay down their religious strongholds and opinions as well as judgments of one another. Choosing instead, to bend their knees humbly and cry out to the King of Kings and the Lord of Lords to reveal Himself in all of His grace and Mercy to them.

Let us, be some of the very first people to bow our knees, to pray for one another, to ask the Father that He would again touch the planet Earth one more time with a great fiery move of His Spirit. That those that are lost, broken and deceived would have their eyes opened and their understanding made clear that the Son of God has come and redeemed them from the curse.

THE STRATEGIC DRAWING BOARD

There are a great number of Divine and strategic drawing boards and a re-designing going on in the lives of those called to move into the roles of Kingdom modeling of the Father’s heart, the Savior’s passion and the Holy Spirit’s purest functions in the Body.

“See, today I appoint you over nations and kingdoms.

To uproot and tear down, to destroy and overthrow.

To build and to plant." ~ Jeremiah 1:10

OLD WALLS vs. NEW WALLS

Old walls first come down before new ones can be put up!

Old walls of keeping people out of "your space"  -  "your ministry" - “your home”. The true boundaries of the Kingdom have room for everyone to freely express, (with respect for others), the passion they have for the "design" the Lord has given to them, for building up the King's domain!

The "kingdom" of God has grace as its boundary setting and humility as its foundation.

And it will be said:

"Build up, build up, prepare the road!

Remove the obstacles out of the way of my people."

~ Isaiah 57:14

"THE ERA OF REBUILDING"

The Lord is speaking to us in this era of "rebuilding" His house of worship – that as we put first becoming those temples and hearts of men surrendered to him as yielded vessels, there will be rooms re-designed by the "Master’s craftsman" that will be filled with strategically planned prayer initiatives, music rooms equipped with "clear spiritual headsets" to hear the songs of the kingdom and actually record and share them freely, and a series of “family rooms” where all ethnic groups become "one family" as they fix their eyes on upon the "fireplace" of the presence of the Holy Spirit and His Pentecost type of power and might!

"I also told them about the gracious hand of my God upon me,

and what the King had said to me.

They replied, "let us start rebuilding."

So they began this good work.

~ Nehemiah 2:18

I AM RESTRUCTURING EVERYTHING

“Yes says the Lord!  I Am restructuring everything in your lives that I have allowed to be taken and shaken from you! How can you be My fresh expression in the earth with the old worn out living quarters of the past?

Those who continue to cling to the accolades of the past and bygone ministry meetings and services (even if they were just last week) will receive a limited amount of new assignments until they realize that the past is….PAST!

Each day is a new day and needs a fresh approach to the fresh design model that I AM revealing!”

“The day for building your walls will come,

The day for extending your boundaries.”

Micah 7:11

A CHANGE OF PACE – A STRENGTHENED GRACE

The unseen prophetic and travailing groups of individuals who are being shaped

into the fabric of God's own weaving, are currently being made ready for a swift and dynamic change of pace.

What was once long and hard will become shortened and filled with rest.

Release of God's grace and abundant mercy is coming into fulfillment as you end your course of instructions for this season.

My friends don’t be surprised at the painful things that you are now suffering, which are testing your faith. Don’t think that something strange is happening to you. But you should be happy that you are sharing in Christ’s sufferings. You will be happy and full of joy when Christ shows his glory.”

1 Peter 4:12-13

“BIGHEARTEDNESS"

Bigheartedness will be a part of the evidence of a fresh wave of Kingdom glory in the earth. Missionaries or “sent ones” will not grieve over broken promises made to them for aid to go! No! Those now surfacing in the earth as the fresh wave of pure and “Joseph-type” of compassionate-hearted, nurturing investors (KEY WORD: Nurturing), will be suddenly established… as well as the faithful and obedient souls who have never merchandised the anointing or promoted their gifting nor have shamed others while they too were flowing in obedience themselves.

“I pray also that the eyes of your heart may be enlightened.

In order that you may know the hope to which he has called you.

The riches of his glorious inheritance in the saints.”

Ephesians 1:18

“THE SERVANTS OF BLESSING”

The financial institutions will be dumbfounded as supernatural windfalls hit the Body of Christ while worldly concepts and scheming only further muddy the waters of global finance.

Joseph gifts in the body, men and women, who are beginning to see with eyes now stripped of the fear of be taken advantage of, will be visited with great joy and supernatural revelation as they see that they are called by Heaven as “The Servants of Blessing.” They will operate in a restored life of purity in motive, in worship, and in honoring one another in Christ. Simply honoring each other without keeping lists of how much has been given or shared!

“All the believers were one in heart and mind.

No one claimed that any of his possessions was his own,

But they shared everything they had.”

Act 4:32

THERE WILL BE SHOUTS AND TEARS OF JOY

There will be shouts and tears of joy as heaven moves upon the hearts of wise, kingdom minded saints, who have been given grave responsibility over heavenly blessed currency. These sober truth-seeking saints, will hear the voice of the Lord and will not be moved by flashy pleas for glamorous support and promises of free gifts in return!  No! They will be led by the counsel of the Holy Spirit to be vessels that release a steady flow into the hands of those ready to only build with the name "Jesus" on the final product.

“Joseph TROUPES”

I am impressed by the Lord as I write that there are even those who have a “Joseph Troupe” type of calling that will actually store up investments and actually be teamed up by the Lord with missionaries, food banks, and other sent ones. The Joseph gifting will bless the harvest call on many seasoned and faithful servants of God who have been in places of preparation for further ministry to the Body of Christ globally.

HAND PICKED "PEOPLE APPOINTMENTS"

There will be specific "people appointments" from the Father in heaven and through His Holy Spirit, He will bear witness in the hearts of those called like Joseph, to assist their Godly assigned brothers or sisters in Christ in the touching and training of believers in many nations. Discipleship will once again become a key component with those who have the apostolic heart to mentor and direct others into the field of harvest.

HEARTS OF KINDNESS  - COMPASSIONATE ADVISORS

These wise ones have known the false and greedy appeals for more coffers of religion to be filled and are no longer swayed nor fleeced by them. They will become hands of blessing, hearts of kindness, and I am again impressed by the Spirit of God, that they will also be compassionate advisors to those who have poured out all they have upon the spiritually hungry without taking much for their own care and rest. They will also be given great discernment regarding whom they are not to pour into in the next season of Kingdom work.

A PLACE FOR “JOSEPH GRACE”

A Godly voice of wisdom will be heard from the Joseph-hearted saints and they will prepare fiscally, medically, and recreationally well-designed plans for those needing such tender care.  It will be as if the Father himself brought heaven to earth in the form of a heavenly Joseph appointed employer, providing a salary for the employee as God establishes a different way of sending laborers into the harvest fields of service and places He commissions them to go. They will go with a foundation of “Joseph grace” undergirding them financially, relationally, and more importantly, in humble fervent prayer as co-workers together.

“Joseph, called by the apostles "Barnabas"

(Which means "Son of Comfort"), a Levite born in Cyprus,

Sold a field that he owned, brought the money,

And made an offering of it to the apostles.”

Acts 4:36-37

REBUILD A NEW "HOUSE OF WORSHIP"

Allow the Father to do his work of re-construction without hindrance or fear! He will rebuild a new "house of worship" within each of His people who allow Him to walk into each room of their hearts and tear out the old and embedded dirt, grime, and of staleness of passive and fearful living. Accusing and harsh judgments, disrespect for others devoted time and critical attitudes will be purged again and again in the hearts of believers who have yet to see through the eyes of Christ those whom He lovingly calls beloved and faithful, even though viewed as awkward or fragile in the eyes of the immature or worldly heart.

Psalm 31:23

“All who belong to the Lord, 
 show how you love him!

The Lord protects the faithful,

But he firmly rebukes
 everyone who is proud.”

THE MOST EXCELLENT ETERNAL BLUEPRINT

It is the day for each member of the Body of Christ to think of itself as one Godly unit, ready to honor and edify each unique Master plan of the King. It's the hour where building upon egos, smug thinking, and entitlement only invites the demolition of the Spirit to go to work until the knowledge of humility and eternal reward are viewed as the most excellent eternal blueprint!

"Since you are eager to have spiritual gifts,

Try to excel in gifts that build up the church."

~ 1 Corinthians 14:12

A PROMISE FOR REST

Rest will be essential for the retention of peace and clarity in this next year.

As the training in humility and “gentleness of heart-expanded compassion” are applied in our lives as friends of the King, our souls will cease their strivings from the driven goals we set out to accomplish.

We will learn to listen to the wisdom and warnings of others in simplicity and humility. And, in gentleness we will sincerely approach one another as dear Jesus does. Although He is the wisest among us, He puts no heavy yokes or shameful modes of performance upon His children. He simply yokes them to Himself in a promised rest when they yield humbly.

“Take my yoke upon you and learn from me,

For I am gentle and humble in heart,

And you will find rest for your souls.”

Matthew 11:29

By Mary Lindow

I have a tender stirring in my spirit from the Holy Spirit as I share this message.
The Lord is hearing the sounds in the earth coming from the hearts and deep cries of so many of His people right now. Perhaps, it might even be you as you read. There is a cry of hunger for His sure, safe, presence in difficult times and in changing times.
All my longings lie open before you, O Lord; My sighing is not hidden from you. Psalm 38:9
A YEARNING FOR DEEP REST
The world and it's voices of influence, humanistic subtleties and constant technology and it's sounds, bring about an overload of weariness to all people, creating a greater need for a place of rest for the warriors of truth who are very aware of the pressures that have not stopped mounting for many years now.
DO YOU NEED A FRESH TOUCH FROM THE HAND OF GOD?
That intimate “you and Him” time? Not just basic devotional readings or corporate worship and prayer gatherings. I mean that “place” or room or location to go where you can wrestle, cry, wait, and listen. To rest in the arms of Peace. The place where strength can be imparted.
Daniel 10:18 “Again the one who looked like a man, Touched me and gave me strength.”
WE MUST PURSUE THE PLACE OF DIVINE “SANCTUARY!”
That “get away from it all” place of craving and longing for His comfort. He knows our hurt, our loneliness, and our scorched and heart-torn issues! He understands how agonizing and bled out we can get when it seems that battle after battle we begin to wonder if something might be wrong with us!
“Hope delayed makes the heart sick, But when dreams come true, there is life and joy.” Proverbs 13:12 (NAT)
THERE IS MUCH TREACHERY OCCURRING IN THE EVIL PLANS OF DARKNESS
AND THE PEOPLE HELD CAPTIVE BY IT.

It can bring a real sense of despair, broken-heartedness and shock when you encounter this type of thing and when it attempts to destroy your hope and confidence in what the Lord Jesus has set you apart for to express in His Power and in His name. I don't know fully why it seems as if good people who are sincere and pure hearted seem to go through more persecution and repeated difficulty. But I do know this…
…NOTHING CAN SATISFY LIKE A TOUCH FROM GOD!
We are in a time where no person’s opinions, no books and no new revelations are going to satisfy that craving - that need for deep companionship with God.
We long to hear words from someone that tell us everything is going to be all right! That our children will be safe, our homes protected, our basic needs provided! Nothing “out there” satisfies us fully!

“Every word you give me is a miracle word Lord! How could I help but obey?
Break open your words; let the light shine out, Let ordinary people see the meaning.
Mouth open and panting, I want your commands more than anything.
Turn my way, look kindly on me, As you always do to those who personally love you.” Psalm 119:129-131 (The Message)

A PROPHETIC WHISPER AND SONG FOR YOUR HEART…
… FROM THE SAVIOR

“To Know Me, you must spend time with ME. To know of My ways, you must know ME! To spend time with Me, you must purpose, to put aside the lists of things you have to do, before you can spend time in My presence.
Order your days first in My presence, and watch the desires of your heart be fulfilled. Man and his council will always fall short of the full truth of My Wisdom. I have blueprints and a Master plan for so many things yet to build upon in your life.
Come. Let me touch your heart again! You are the temple, the house of My Holy Spirit. I desire to build you up in spiritual strength as you walk in prayer and conversation with me,
I will fulfill your longing for peace and direction as you step up again into a heavenly trust and rest.
People will change, man will fail you and friends will turn if they are not seeking My Voice about the darkness and threats of the day. And you My child will fail others if you listen to your own voice of reason and intelligence. As you turn to Me, you will see My compassion poured out upon you and you will then have My power of pure godly compassion and grace to pour out on others.
I too, long for you as well! Seek Me-with all of your heart, your longings, your heartaches, your dreams. And I will be there with arms of strength to rescue you from despair. A Touch of the Holy Changes Everything you Know.
“Jesus came and touched them. “Get up,” he said. “Don’t be afraid.” Matthew 17:7
PLEASE SIT BACK NOW AND ALLOW THE HOLY SPIRIT
TO DEEPLY MINISTER TO YOU THROUGH THE FOLLOWING PROPHETIC SONG OF THE LORD.

This prophetic song is filled with spontaneous prophetic music and lyrics, all Master Mixed in studio as intercessors prayed faithfully for hours.
The additional instrumentation was added immediately after the song was recorded “Fresh” through a computerized piano keyboard or played live on drums by gifted musician John Grapperhaus from St. Louis Missouri.
These are the actual sounds and instruments I am blessed and honored to hear while I simply play and sing live and spontaneously, from a Piano module on a digital keyboard.
It is so wonderful to be able to let others “hear” what I am shared with from the Father as well! May the Heavenly Father sing and rejoice over you as you sit back and listen to this selection from the ~ “Messages From Home” CD.

I praise you because I am fearfully and wonderfully made; Your works are wonderful, I know that full well. Psalm 139:14

WE ARE STRANGE AND EXQUISITE CREATURES. We can ache for God tremendously; yet find ourselves getting nervous if God gets too close! After all, the closer God gets, the more we hear the call to be “unpolluted”.

It is both exciting and frightening to hear that call!

A STORY “Once upon a time there was a little plant that was small and whose growth was stunted, for it lived under the shade of a giant oak tree.

The little plant valued the shade that covered it and highly enjoyed and lavished the quiet rest that it’s majestic friend provided. Yet there was a greater blessing prepared for this little plant.

One day a lumberjack entered the forest with a sharp ax and cut down the giant oak! The little plant began to weep, crying out, “My shelter has been taken away”. Now every fierce wind will blow on me, and every storm will seek to uproot me!”

The guardian angel of the little plant responded, “NO! Now the sun will shine and showers will fall on you more abundantly than ever before! Now your stunted form will spring up into loveliness, and your flowers, which could never have grown to full perfection in the shade, will laugh in the sunshine. Many will say, look how that plant has grown. How gloriously beautiful it has become by removing that which was it’s shade and comfort!

THE TRAINING OF A SPIRITUAL COMRADE We need to see that the Lord wisely trains his soldiers by calling them to difficult travels and service. He strengthens them through wildernesses and mountains. God knows that spiritually armed Soldiers can only be developed in battle and are not developed in times of calm. We can only become true seasoned soldiers of Christ when we train and serve in the preparation time of the inhospitable surroundings.

TRUST FOR A SEASON! It's all about trusting God in the end. Oh yes it is! We often ask in the heat of difficult battles whether they are mental battles, spiritual battles, and financial battles…”Will He REALLY refresh us in this time of struggle?” His Loving Word says so.

“For I satisfy the weary ones And refresh everyone who languishes." Jer. 31:25

THE LORD IS PRODUCING STAMINA… …WHETHER WE LIKE IT OR NOT! “Blessed is a man who perseveres under trial; For once he has been approved, He will receive the crown of life, Which the Lord has promised to those who love Him.” James 1:12

THE FATHER IS URGING US TO RUN TO HIM, TO CRY TO HIM! He is there! Even in this fog of struggle, loss, anxiety, or seeming success! He wants us to be desperate for Him and is training us to rely on His voice. To make our decisions based on His plan for the whole earth!

TIE YOURSELF TO THE HAND OF GOD! Get a "rope of expectation"(the word of God) and tie yourself to it. Hold on! The boding evil is nearly over!

“The night is nearly over; the day is almost here. So let us put aside the deeds of darkness And put on the armor of light.” Romans 13:12

INTIMATE PLACE OF COMMUNICATION It would be a powerful opportunity for all of us to get on our knees in an “intimate place of communication” with the Lord, and refresh our commitment to purity, and with a willing heart to yield to the bidding of the Father.

They charge like warriors; they scale walls like soldiers. They all march in line, not swerving from their course. Joel 2:7

LET OUR HEARTS WILLINGLY... …Give Him Room to Move Freely in our daily actions in this Life.

We do this by clearing away or removing anything that feeds and pampers our flesh and our own concepts of the Kingdom.

WE PREPARE HIM A PLACE At throne in our hearts from which He can reign and activate His anointing.

No one serving as a soldier gets involved in civilian affairs— He wants to please his commanding officer. 2 Timothy 2:4

1 John 2:27 As for you, the anointing you received from him remains in you, and you do not need anyone to teach you. But as his anointing teaches you about all things and as that anointing is real, not counterfeit—just as it has taught you, remain in him.
