Going To Share
By Kathy Mote
I'm going to share something that some might not understand. Years ago, the Lord poured out His anointing.
It brought me to my knees like a child before Him, and there I stayed. To those around me who were mature and accomplished in their own eyes, I looked childish, not child like. They turned their backs on me, and I was left behind.
I counted the loss of their respect to be nothing in His presence, and He and I moved on. Seeing Him meant not seeing anything else, least of all their opinion of my heart and life being changed. They perceived themselves to be wise and accomplished
in the Word, but His Word was not accomplished in them by Him. They didn't hear Him or answer Him, but I did.
He spoke to me then and reminded me of it now. What He said then was, don't worry about what
men say or think. You will see that all put together, what they have will not rival what is given to you by Me.
I know this sounds prideful, but I assure you, it isn't meant to be. That's not where my
heart is. My heart was broken at looking foolish in front of those I had so much respect for. Looking back, I see the Lord meant what He said and did all He said. My life is lived in Him and all of them together don't hold a candle to Him.
So if you are wondering at the powerful anointing that is falling on you and raising you up to an intimate place of knowing Him, don't worry about what it looks like to those who are not receiving it. It is His presence being made sure in your heart.
His presence is powerful to bring change, and it will burn everyone and everything around you to the ground. You must be prepared for the loss. By not warning you or explaining it to you, He strengthens your heart.
A Fact of Life
By Kathy Mote
A fact of Life is that what is given to Him belongs to Him. He blesses all that is His. The way to live a stress and worry free Life
is to live in His presence, trusting that what is His He will make right. This is how His desire and His design is seen in us. This is how He prospers us, by giving us His desires.
There Is Something
In My Heart
By Kathy Mote
There is something in my heart I continually give to Him. It is my desire to be completely rid of it, but
there it always is. It is the weakness of my human heart that needs His perfect strength to become His perfect will. But I am perfectly flawed, I continually fall short, and I am always broken over it. I apologized to Him. He said, And what, exactly, are you
apologizing to Me for? You are the work of My hands.
Today I realize that to be the work of His hands is His perfect gift, and to have faith (His expressed desire working
in our heart) we should trust what He is doing in us. His work in us is perfect, and we are made perfect as we trust in Him. His answer was perfect, as well. It led me back to Him. That was my weakness, being distracted by the desire for success.
He Fills Our Heart With Life
By Kathy Mote
He fills our heart with Life as He comes to us, and we are wrecked as we respond to Him. His love bringing us to Him is how we honor
Him as Lord. His love made known to us is how we know Him as Lord.
I hear the angel of the Lord say that we are brought into the Light of His presence when He comes to us, for He is Life and where He is
there is Life. So we follow Him, walking in the Light. Our hearts heavy with the need of Him.
He is Lord of all, and He is beautiful. This is why we weep as He comes to us. We feel the weight of our need of Him being lifted off of us.
We are filled as He renews us as we have never been before. This is no emotion, we are brought before His throne.
There are no words to describe being brought before Him. What He intends for us has not
been perceived in generations past. But this is His invitation, something not yet fully revealed, that we might come to know Him as Lord without our own thoughts or deeds.
It is the most intimate knowledge
of Him to know Him as He is. This is not just what we think. This is the knowledge of Him as LORD in us being unveiled. That is how He communes with us, and how we become one heart with Him. This is no religion, this is Him bringing us to Him. This is why
we are being so mightily changed. We are preparing for His return.
