The Lord Said

By Kathy Mote

 

 

 

The Lord said, Kid, I'll make a warrior out of you yet. He said this to me a year ago, but I didn't understand. He is Life to me, my every breath. This is something I do not fight to get. The peace in my heart as I am protected by Him comes by His presence. I ignore the devil and he is not a part of my life. Everything in my life belongs to the Lord and I respond to Him. I have yet to fight or to war, not even with my flesh, for where my heart goes, so goes my flesh.

 

But lately, something in me has changed. His Word in me is as sharp as a sword. It comes out of my belly sharply as a sword would. There's no arguing with it, and hardly anyone does. Perhaps it is because they have already walked away, but I think it is because I am not talking to them.

 

I declare what I say and argue with no one. As I obey Him, that is what comes from me. As sharp as a sword that cuts through man's opinion, His Word obeys Him. So what does one do to be a warrior of God's heart? Care only for Him as He makes you what you are.

Every Weakness in Our Heart

By Kathy Mote

 

 

Every weakness in our heart is His to correct. Our weaknesses are the result of being ignorant of Him, of being and thinking differently than Him. Relieving our struggles to stand before Him, He will straighten our heart to make straight our path. He continually works in us, bringing us to Him. This is the fondest desire of His heart, to bring us to Him with nothing to separate our heart. He wants His children in His arms, where His heart says they belong.

The Lord Showed Me Something

By Kathy Mote

 

 

The Lord showed me something that I would like to share. He changed the place I was standing in as I stood before Him. As my position changed, so did my heart, and as He 'rearranged' me, I saw something I never realized.

 

This is something that continually pulled at my heart, the instinct to be faithful before man that made me accountable to man's opinion and desire. This is what I had been struggling with, for being human, I desired to be faithful in my place among human beings.

 

He showed me that being faithful is a part of His heart, a characteristic He placed within my heart that stands before His heart and is true to His heart. Like His Word, it is continually returning to His heart to satisfy and reflect and obey His heart. As He showed me this, where my heart stood aligned with Him, and where I stood was directly in front of Him.

 

Before this, my place before Him was slightly to the right of His throne, something I never thought to question, since I was always brought there and didn't get there on my own.

 

So it is Jesus who continually works in us to bring us to our Father, and our place is His doing as we stand before Him. We surrender, and yearn to hear His voice. Above all we desire to be as He desires. It is a part of His heart beating in ours that makes us lean toward Him, and the pull toward Him is strong in us.

 

It is His faithfulness working in us bringing us to stand before Him. It is that part of His nature living and breathing in us that answers to Him, and in our heart we know we belong to Him. We belong to Him, we belong with Him and we are faithful to Him. Our faithfulness is of Him and it brings us to Him. Our obedience is for Him. How we respond to others is for Him.

 

I am going to say something I might regret. Here on Facebook many will walk away the minute you say something they don't like. They are doing nothing more than being faithful to where their heart is. It is like that in your personal life as well, people expect you to be faithful to what they believe. This puts a great pressure on us who desire peace, but let me remind you, He is our peace as we are faithful to Him.

Our Faith

By Kathy Mote

 

 

Our faith is based on our relationship with Him, not on our knowledge of scripture.

Thinking We Bring His Will To Pass

By Kathy Mote

 

 

The Lord said that us thinking we bring His will to pass and enforce His Word is our carnal version of what will happen. In God's version, HE brings His Word to pass in us as we yield to Him. He said we are not powerful enough to bring Life into ourselves and it is something we cannot imagine. Only He is that powerful, and it is His Living Word working in us as we acknowledge He is LORD and yield to Him. Likewise this is how we are brought into His presence. We don't do that, HE does. We will stop treating Him like a religion. The Lord will be seen in His delightful children.

When God Says, “Faith”

By Kathy Mote

 

 

 

When God says “faith,” He means His, not yours, working to bring what HE desires in you. What you do is surrender your heart to Him.

His Force of Life

By Kathy Mote

 

 

His force of Life is quickening us. When He said the Kingdom of God suffers violence and the violent take it by force, He meant the Kingdom of God is where Christ rules as He causes us to be quickened with Life (to be made Alive), and as we come to Life we receive Life in Him and enter...

 

 

In our carnal thinking we have assumed 'the violent take it by force' means to rise up and declare and demand His promise of life as we understand it. How vulgar this is to the Father in Heaven who pours His Life and love into us through relationship with Him.

Until Recently

By Kathy Mote

 

 

Until recently I believed that Christ would return to gather a harvest, and that many would come to accept Him just prior to His return. Not so at all. This is not His plan and the carnal thinking that came up with this assumption was in error, not knowing what was always in the heart of the Father to accomplish.

The only people who truly see that the Lord is 'real' are those He has brought into His presence. They are precious few, and He calls them the Remnant, cut from the main of the body of believers in the Earth who consider the Bible to be a religion. He will transform those called to His presence. They will be changed and be a living witness to the powerful presence of the Living God and THAT is how He will gather everyone to Him.

 

The second coming will be such a world changing event that all life on Earth will never be the same again. All hearts will be changed by His appearing, and this is dramatically different than people simply changing their minds and giving mental assent to accept Him. This is much more powerful than accepting the idea of Him at one's own pace. This is change coming to every heart as they see Him.

 

Our thinking has been carnal and so have our assumptions. He is Spirit and Truth and He will appear in power. This is not a bless me club, and this is not about people's accomplishments or thoughts or religion. This is Him being seen through His power to change us. He will change us by His presence in us. When He appears, we will see we are created for Him. This goes way beyond what man can do. This is what God can do.

There Are Some Who Are Asking

By Kathy Mote

 

 

 

There are some who are asking, Will I always have to stand alone? The answer is, No. He is always with you.
