That Heavy Burden You Carry

By Kathy Mote

 

 

That heavy burden you carry to hear His voice is His presence drawing you closer to Him. He is awakening your heart. What a heavy burden it is to bear, for to stand this close to Him cannot be done in your flesh. This is what has set you apart from those who are not ready to come this close. Soon He will be revealed to every heart, and then you will not be an oddity any more.

 

You are called to Him, and His presence reveals His purpose in calling you near when no one else seems to hear. You will reflect His presence before He appears, a testimony and a witness of Him in all the Earth.

 

This has given you the life you have lived, not a blessing by human thinking and standards. It has humbled you, even broken you, but you no longer care. The Lord said it is a matter of being emptied that you might be filled. Your thoughts in exchange for His, your heart poured out to hear His voice.

 

There is something that you don't know, a perspective of what He is doing in all the Earth. This is something He does not reveal to the untrained heart. He wants our trust above all, which is not the same as giving informed consent knowing the end result. It is by trusting Him that we enter into His presence as His child, calling Him Lord, not by knowing the world is the work of His hands.

 

But this is the work of His hands and all that He is doing in us, that as we enter in by trusting Him, we are made one with His heart, becoming all that His heart desires. You now know something that so very few truly know. His heart is the narrow gate that we enter through, and dying to self is how we live in Him.

His Presence Will Humble Our Heart

By Kathy Mote

 

 

 

His presence will humble our heart. As He is exalted, we will be humbled. That is His presence bringing us to Him. In His presence, you do not declare yourself, it is Him that is being declared to your heart. Many will come to know Him like this, humbling themselves to remain before Him. They walk in the fragrance of Heaven because the fragrance of Heaven is upon them.

The Lord Said

By Kathy Mote

 

 

The Lord said, If you look to people for fellowship, you will find you are not in the right place. If you look to Me to find your place, you will find you and I are in fellowship.

Ok

By Kathy Mote

 

 

OK, your heart is surrendered, but as you face what you must do to obey, your heart falters. I hear the Lord say, Never fear the face of those who oppose you. I have put My own heart of courage in you. This comes with revelation of what I am doing in the Earth. I will place your foot above the things of the Earth as I establish My will where you place your foot.

After Years

By Kathy Mote

 

After years of blaming myself for the hatred, gossip and rejection that followed me like a stray dog, I came to the logical conclusion that I was unlovable. When I came to this realization, something in me just stopped, and I lost all hope of ever being loved. It was then the Lord asked me a question that turned my thinking around.

 

He said, What did you do as a 3 month old child that made your own parents hate you? Then He showed me working tirelessly in my marriage, loving without being loved in return by my husband or respected by my children, something that had broken my heart over and over. He asked me that simple question once again. How did you fail at being a wife and mother?

 

He showed me every time I was rejected out of hand and said it wasn't me that was being rejected, but me receiving the consequence of what He called me to do and what He put in me.

 

He said, The entire universe knows what I put within you even if you don't. By My own hand have I set you apart. I humbled you by My purpose in you. Being humbled is the only way you are able to carry it.

 

He said, The entire world and every creature in it groans in travail to be made perfect. The entire world and every creature in it wants to be given their life their way according to their own design and desire. To save them, I'm not going to give it to them. I will bring them instead into the peace and order of My presence. I will deal with each and every one of them.

Something I Am Learning

By Kathy Mote

 

Something I am learning that I would like to share is part of a long journey of the heart. Never being loved by my own parents, God's love is refreshing, life giving water to my thirsty soul.

 

Because of this, for many months what drove my every emotion was the intense desire for His love and approval. It didn't matter to me what He asked of me, I gladly jumped, day or night, to do it. Whether 2am or 2pm, I was all His and I considered this to be my privilege. I slept on the stairs to His throne.

I knew I had the heart of a small child, but, that was the only way I knew to be even though I was no more grown up than that. I cried to Him one day, realizing how immature I was. I wanted to be what He desired of me, but surely this wasn't all there was to it.

 

His answer was to tell me not to worry it, and not to worry about anything ever again. So I learned to lean into Him, leaving how I turned out up to Him. Months have gone by and I realize He has healed my heart in ways I cannot even fathom. One way I have seen His handiwork in me is what I am going to share now.

 

Whenever I desire something, whether big or small, and the Lord tells me, You don't need that, instead of dwelling on my own lost desire, I am filled with anticipation of knowing what His is. This may sound simple, but I assure you, it is profound. To date, it is the most deeply profound realization of freedom.

This level of surrender, trust and maturity makes you flow in His desire from a heart that is not only obedient, but made free and able to fly. To surrender your earthly desires is one thing, but to surrender with giddy anticipation of receiving His desires in His presence is a living trust that can only be defined as His heart beating in yours.

 

So when He speaks to you regarding your desires and says, No, dear, learn to look forward to being shown His desire in a heart made free to enter in! He is doing a marvelous work in us, His love ever more clearly revealed.
