I Woke Up
I woke up feeling like I had been in a coma instead of a restful sleep. My dreams were something I didn't understand, I started my morning not being sure of what
I heard, and I was out of sorts over it. Feeling not quite right, the first thing I did was say, I feel about as anointed as corn puffs. The Lord asked me, What does anointed feel like? I heard the Holy Spirit say, It feels like obedience.
And just like that, He set my heart right before Him. He said, Pharoah was anointed, and like it or not, I was present to make sure he was obedient. You and I are becoming as one. For you the anointing is different. For you it is going to be trusting
and yielding, following, not leading, and our union will accomplish My will. I will see to it.
What He wants is not self confident, powerful people, but ones who are obedient to Him. He knows what He is
doing in them and His presence in them is powerful. My heart is corrected and I am humbly empowered to do His will simply by abiding. This doesn't feel like me walkin' in Jesus, it feels like Jesus walkin' in me.
Are Equal In God’s Presence
By Kathy Mote
These things are equal in God's presence, trust and
surrender, trust and faith, trust and worship. They are all evidence of His presence in your heart making you honor Him. The more you know His love for you the more deeply your surrender and trust in Him. Then there is nothing in your heart to strive or argue
with Him, and nothing to keep you from hearing Him.
The Lord always has His way in your life. There are no exceptions. He will make your enemy bless and adorn you. The world around
you will be at peace with you as you trust Him

The only way to be right with the Lord's heart is to completely rely on Him. He doesn't want you to trust in
your understanding or your abilities and accomplishments. It is what He does in you that makes you right with Him. He is adamant about being the only Lord in your heart. He guards you like an impenetrable fortress and He is fiercely jealous of your affections.
The only Life there is is the Life He gives, but many do not enter His presence. You are His child, called to His arms, His Remnant, but being made one with His heart takes total trust, surrender and submission. He
is not just here to help you with your life's journey, He is your destination. The Lord is removing any doubt you had about His ability to raise you. He is raising you so you will be living proof of His grace, His mercy and His power, for being raised, you
will walk with Him in glory.
The Lord Said
The Lord said, “You have been pressed down and pressed down until that is how you stand.”
There Is A Woman
The Father said, “There is a woman who has been put down and put down and put down until I have said, Enough! I will raise her up! I have always purposed in My
heart to raise her up. The humility it has given her to be brought so low is how she is able to stand! You who are distraught by your humbling circumstance, you do not understand! You are being given a great gift. For only the lowly in heart can walk in the
garden with the King!”
Only the humble stand in His presence! Nothing is equal to Him! All things bow before Him! He Who desires the sweetness of your company has called for you to be given great
gifts to prepare you for Him. They adorn you, they declare your value and your worth, they bring you, full of His pleasure, before Him.
