His presence is what makes us whole and being fully filled by Him is being fully alive as He intended us to
be. This means to accept the Life He gives, we are fully yielded to Him, moment to moment inhaling what He breathes into our heart. That is how He speaks to us.
His love, which is how He creates, operating
in us, is how we are healed from being dead. (He is Life). Somehow this doesn't explain it very well. Maybe it is too simply put. Maybe that is because He is love, and what His love is like is a whole 'nother chapter'. He said that it would take a thousand
books to fully describe Him, and it would take that many years to begin to know Him.
Us See This Life
By Kathy Mote
So let us see this life from the Lord's point of view. He created the Heavens and the Earth as a place
to bring us and raise us as His own children. We are very dear to Him. We are called to know Him and choose Him over everything in this life. To do this, we have to know His love for us. That is the only thing powerful enough to open our eyes to see beyond
What we don't realize is how very brief this life is. Or how much of it is orchestrated by Him. If you are reading this and feeling resentment, you don't fully know His heart in doing all He
has done. The Lord showed me something that I would like to share. I hope it brings healing. I'm sure that is what He intended.
He said that only by His Spirit being in us do we come to Him. It is His
power working in us that brings us to Him. It is His powerful presence working in us to fill us with His love that we would be healed and made whole. This is to say we are not whole without Him filling us. This is what it is to be made one with Him and be
brought entirely in His presence.
We always see things from our side. We only know our perspective, not really knowing His. He told me that if He explained everything to me I would understand in my mind,
but my heart would not contain it. Not by a long shot.
He said that in our flesh, before He is finished with us, our heart cannot contain all He has for us. He also said our flesh cannot stand in glory
before Him, especially as we are clinging to the things of the Earth. Our flesh is too flawed and weak and it doesn't understand. That is the whole point. We lay it down to gain Him.

The devil's accusations are always unjust. He is the accuser of the brethren and the father
of lies and he means to burn you down because you have accepted Christ. Christ in you challenges him. The devil rose up against God, resenting God for giving all authority to Christ. That is how he earned his title, 'the father of lies'. He denies Christ.
So, to be healed of the whole mess we are entangled in in this life is to be made one with God's heart by accepting Christ as Lord of every aspect of your life. Accepting and trusting Him this deeply and knowing Him
this intimately brings His presence into your heart. That is your healing. His presence silences every accusation, denouncing every lie. As you declare Christ, He is declared in you. This brings to nothing every accusation hurled against you.
By establishing you in your place before His throne, He makes you to know your place in His heart. This takes the sting out of the devil's rejection you endure in this life. The devil's lies are merely taunts. Knowing
God's heart and intention to save your life gives you a view of just how powerful He is to call all who don't know Him and His mercy to Him.
So we stand in His presence as we have been called. Our gratitude
runs deep that we are loved. Let every painful rejection we have endured be undone in our heart, knowing He calls those He loves to Him. We chose Him because He chose us.

Surrender is how to listen. Because they want to hear what they want to hear, many have 'chosen' not to listen. Surrendering your
heart means to trust Him and rely on Him, to stop telling Him your will and ask to hear His.
Surrender is honoring Him as Lord and choosing to listen.
