I Would Like to Share My Lunch With You

By Kathy Mote


I would like to share my lunch with you, something I have never done before. I purchased lobster ravioli, and cooked it in butter, herbs and chicken broth. I grated white cheddar truffle cheese on top, another grocery store splurge. The reason I am sharing this is I was taught something as I prepared my lunch, and I was asked to share.


As I placed the ravioli in the gently rolling broth with herbs and butter in it, the Holy Spirit showed me three would be enough. But they were very small, my tummy was very empty, and my eyes were very big, so I chose to put five in. My desire for lunch was on my mind and I barely heard the Holy Spirit. With being so distracted, His voice was easy to miss.


As I ate my lovely lunch, I was perfectly filled at three. The Lord reminded me that three had been His choice, something I blew right past.


He is not bossy or pushy. He does not desire to control. He desires to bless and lead. He desires to help, and show us His wisdom, something that will alleviate waste and suffering in our life.


Many times He has shown me this, and as I listened to Him I was blessed. But today He showed something else. He desires for our hearts to be in His loving, protective hands, even in the details. He desires to be a part of every aspect in every moment of our lives. He desires to be part of every conversation. He desires to be in our midst, close enough to us that He is the very center of our desires that we may always hear Him.

What Are You Speaking if You Are Not Hearing From God?

By Jo Ellen Stevens




When You Are Weak — Trust in His Strength


I heard The LORD say, “Some of you have said ‘This is my new normal.” (Meaning that you will accept a lesser quality of life).


“But I say to you “that I AM a supernatural God and I AM the God of abundant life!


It is not time to decrease but increase and not in your own strength but in Mine!


Let the weak say, ‘I am strong’ for My Strength is made perfect in your weakness!”


What Are You Speaking if You Are Not Hearing From God?

“So then faith comes by hearing, and hearing by The Word of God,”  Romans 10;17 NKJV.


Faith Comes by Hearing the Rhema


Your faith comes by hearing and hearing by the word of God.


The word in the Greek here for “Word” is “Rhema” which means, “any sound produced by the voice — an utterance”.


In other words, it is not the logos — although it must line up with the logos, but it is the spoken word which comes by Revelation.


People want to believe that there is too much prophecy but if prophecy brings faith as when God spoke to Abraham and told him to look at the sands on the seashore, then I believe that WE ALL HAD BETTER BE BEING PROPHETIC!


If you are not hearing from God on a daily basis, what is it then that you are teaching or preaching?


Believing You Hear Will Move You to Action!


The world does not believe that people can hear from God because, after all, it is 2020, but then why, have we in the church been given the Holy Spirit?


And that is a problem.


If we do not believe God still speaks, then aren’t we speaking our own thoughts?


Personally, I believe that if we are not hearing from God and resounding what we hear, what are we saying?


God still speaks. and our faith will only cause us to move if we believe that what we are hearing is God.


he problem is that most people in Churches have never been taught that they can hear from God themselves.


Your faith depends on weather you believe that YOU are hearing from God and if you do not, there will never be any action put to your faith!


God still speaks, but do you believe He is speaking to you?


Your faith depends on it!


“But we speak the wisdom of God in a mystery, even the hidden wisdom, which God ordained before the world unto our glory:  which none of the princes of this world knew: for had they known it, they would not have crucified the Lord of Glory.


But as it is written, Eye hath not seen, nor ear heard, neither have entered into the heart of man, the things which God hath prepared for them that love him.


But God hath revealed them unto us by his Spirit: for the Spirit searcheth all things, yea, the deep things of God.


For what man knoweth the things of a man, save the spirit of man which is in him? even so the things of God knoweth no man, but the Spirit of God.

Now we have received, not the spirit of the world, but the spirit which is of God; that we might KNOW the things that are freely given to us of God.


Which things also we speak, not in the words which man’s wisdom teacheth, but which the Holy Ghost teacheth; comparing spiritual things with spiritual.

But the natural man receiveth not the things of the Spirit of God: for they are foolishness unto him: neither can he know them, because they are spiritually discerned,”   1 Corinthians 2:7-14.
