And When You Pray

By Kathy Mote

 

 

7 And when you pray, do not babble on like a pagan who thinks that by reciting text they will be heard. 8 Do not be like them, for your Father knows what you need before you ask Him.

 

9 So then, this is the heart of how you should pray: ‘Our Father in Heaven, hallowed be Your name. 10 Your Kingdom come, Your will be done, on earth as it is in heaven. 11 Give us this day our daily bread. 12 And forgive us our debts, as we also have forgiven our debtors. 13 And lead us not into temptation, but deliver us from evil.

 

Matthew 6:7-13

 

So then you should honestly and with heartfelt respect, first acknowledge He is your Father, then accept His will and His provision for your life. Then realize you are standing before Him, not holding others accountable for our life. Keeping our eyes on Him, we will be kept in His presence, and not being tempted by evil, we will not be tested by evil.

 

This is what the Lord has shown me about His prayer. It is a template not for conversation, but His teaching on how to interact with Him and how to live our life. That we would acknowledge who He is, that we may keep our eyes on Him and live before Him, accepting our life from Him. This is abiding in Him.

 

This can only be done face to face, in all honesty between you and Him. We have placed so much importance on what we say when His living Word should live in our heart. He knows your need and He knows your heart. ❤️ Be blessed.

 

Selah  Peace to you

We Are To Speak

By Kathy Mote

 

 

We are to speak what we hear Him speak. We were never invited to pick up the Bible and quote what we think it means to invoke His Word. He sends His living Word and He brings His will to pass. We speak what we hear Him say to us to obey Him to agree with Him and honor Him.

 

So many of the modern day practices of the church are ignorant of Him. They are the product of carnal thinking that does not see Him. They keep us out of His presence. They are being exposed and coming down. We will stop excluding ourselves from His presence and start honoring Him. He is the living God.

He is the Living God

By Kathy Mote

 

 

 

He is the living God who created the Heavens and the Earth by an act of His will that His Spirit and His Word obeyed to manifest.

 

The stars hang in the sky because He said so.

 

The earth spins and rotates and the sun continues to shine on the just and the unjust because He said so.

 

Jesus is honored as Lord in the Heavens and so shall it be on earth because He said so.

 

He does not operate by your understanding of scripture.

He does not give you your idea of His promise.

 

His promise to make everything beautiful by filling it with the first hand and intimate knowledge of Christ (His salvation) is fulfilled in your heart by Him as you continually yield to Him.

 

Now. What is left for you to say but Thank You. Stop praying and declaring that you receive a promise you have no concept of the glory and power it takes to fulfill and trust Him. There is nothing in your life He won't take care of.

Thinking Your Faith

By Kathy Mote

 

 

Thinking your faith and your 'Christian walk' is something you do is the result of not seeing, hearing and responding to the living God. The Lord said that without being in His presence, (which we continually cry out to be), our thinking is entirely without Him and focused on our self.

 

We feel the weight of the responsibility for all we say and do, making everything in our life a consequence of our own ability to believe. But we are very poor gods. Not surrendering our heart to Him, we think of our life as our own accomplishment at best, and our fault at worst.

 

Not that this will be easy to chew, but it is our unenlightened thinking that our walk with Him is entirely the product of our own intelligent choice. This is because we see ourselves, and not Him. He is present as we cry out to Him, and our faith and confidence in Him is our response to Him.

 

Our choice was not given to us to conjure up the things we desire. Our choice was given to us to enter into a relationship with Him based on His love for us. What we need to 'see' is Him...back to yearning to be in His presence again. The drawback to walking by our carnal knowledge of scripture is, those scriptures promise we will be brought to LIFE by Christ. We couldn't bring them to pass even if we fully understood what LIFE is.

 

The Lord said it is time to understand that He is the Living Word and we are invited to receive Him in Spirit and as Truth. He is the Author of Life, and we yield to His Spirit to fulfill His promise in us. He is calling many out of carnal thinking today. Please be one of them.

The Lord Didn’t Invite You

By Kathy Mote

 

 

The Lord didn't invite you to be a person of great faith. He didn't save you from being without Him to make you great. He didn't call you to Him to save the world. He didn't love you because you were an awesome person. He doesn't admire you because you can set the world on fire.

 

The Lord loves you because He has given you His heart. He called you to Him to protect you from being in the dark. Your faith in Him is your response to being loved. Your confidence in Him is the result of being aware of Him every minute. Seeing Him is what melted your heart. He is the glory in your life, for in His arms is where you live.

 

As for setting the world on fire, that is what He will do as you walk in His presence. Having given Him your heart, He is living and breathing in it. His perfect plan and desire is to show the world His glory, that they may be accepted also.

 

We don't win souls for Christ, and we don't change anyone's heart. His Spirit does as He is present in us. His Life in us is the standard He presents. Let them see what He does with a heart that is made perfect. That is what you walk in as He is every desire in it.

Everything in My Heart

By Kathy Mote

 

 

 

Everything in my heart is my response to Him. I listen to Him and I listen for Him. My 'faith' is my heart's response to His presence and His love. The love I have for Him is the love He loved me with.

 

So, you who love Him and are in His arms, hearing Him and responding to Him, everything in your heart is your response to Him. You listen to Him and you listen for Him. Your 'faith' is your heart's response to His presence and His love. The love you have for Him is the love He loved you with.

 

This is Spirit, and His presence is Life.
