Those Who Are Called

By Kathy Mote

 

 

The Lord said, ‘Those who are called and raised will walk in My presence, but more to the point, I will live and move and breathe in them to walk in theirs. I am present to bring them into living communion.”

There Is A Difference

By Kathy Mote

 

 

There is a difference between the heart that waits on the Lord to know His thoughts, and the heart that barges forward practicing what it knows and is comfortable with. The heart that waits for Him yearns to hear His voice, and hearing is the point of their life. Being in His presence to give Him their heart is how they live.

 

I keep seeing a vision of the church in the shape and form of someone who is Spirit filled, but not listening to Him. They think the Holy Spirit makes them something they are not...it was poured out to bring us into the Lord's presence, not give us the idea we have the authority to live by our own understanding without Him.

 

Hearing the voice of the Lord will deeply humble your heart, and after that moment, hearing Him will be the point of your life. But our flesh is, well, lazy, and incoherent. It will always seek the path of least resistance. It's our heart that stands before Him, and we bring our flesh into obedience. Our flesh and carnal thoughts will always consider our own comfort to be the point of our existence.

 

As the Lord leads us deeper into our Father's presence to walk in the ways of His heart, we will follow His presence to know His thoughts. To our heart, being in His presence and becoming as He desires will always be the point. Shouldn't it be? That is what He is doing in us. He is God.

Think About It

By Kathy Mote

 

 

Think about it...it's your flesh that focuses on what the devil's doing. That's the point, to get you to fight and war, and we war because of fear. In the Lord's presence, your focus is on Him, but more to the point, He is in charge and the devil flees. If you are warring against the devil, you are walking in your flesh and you have missed the point.

 

If you are looking at the devil, you are not seeing the Lord. Sadly, this is what happens when we walk with a Bible verse instead of the Living God they promise. The Lord is driving this point home to reveal the error of our ways. He is the Way, and we walk in His presence. His authority is not something we declare, it is His presence.

Measuring God’s Presence

By Kathy Mote

 

 

Measuring God's presence and purpose in the now moments of your life is like judging your journey's destination by the bus ride. We are often wearied and tired by the lack of comfort we feel, and we mistake our opportunity to trust Him and follow after Him for being abandoned.

 

Jesus did not walk away from you, He walked away with you and He's teaching you to follow after Him. He is teaching your heart the very deepest surrender there is, to follow regardless of whether or not you understand. For some, this is trusting His goodness while not seeing or hearing Him as clearly as they had.

 

In a sense, you are giving Him your consent. He is taking you where you would not know to go yourself. As He leads, you will follow Him. All that you are receives all He would give. Smile. He is teaching you not to walk by your flesh. He is teaching you to walk by His Spirit, instead.

What the Lord Wants in Us

By Kathy Mote

 

 

What the Lord wants in us is not confidence in ourselves, or in what we are doing or thinking. We are here to learn the most important thing there is to learn in our time on this Earth, that in our heart, the center of our being, the most powerful thing we will ever experience is our need of Him and His love for us is how He completes us.
