There Are Deeper Things Found Deep

By Kathy Mote

 

 

There are deeper things found deep in God's presence that you have to be tried before you can enter. He will teach you to stand before you can stand in them. This is to say He will refine the desires of your heart as He shows you the desires in His, so that your heart will stand before Him.

 

A deeper respect is called for so that you do not rise up against Him, run free of Him, make demands of Him or become complacent as you learn to stand before Him. Just when you think you've got it, you don't. That is when you will be humbled again, brought deeper into His presence to know what His heart is.

I Just Adore

By Kathy Mote

 

 

I have a sister who I just adore. I love every word she says, because I hear God's wisdom in her. I found myself, in my appreciation of her, being shown that I was, any second now, going to be jealous of the anointing our Father had placed on her...I bawled like a baby, surrendering it to Him. I asked that I would only desire Him, so that I may honor Him.

 

My Father said, “Do you think that something you have the ability to choose is 'good' enough to honor Him? Becoming what He places within you as He fills you is how you honor Him.” And just like that, He lifted me out of my own thinking, placing in my heart a part of Him.

 

Such a subtle shift but oh, so powerful. Deep and abiding trust in what His presence is doing in me is, so far, my greatest comfort. He said His gift is His presence bringing us to Him, and that is what honors Him.

When The Lord Said

By Kathy Mote

 

 

When the Lord said, “I prepare a table for you in the presence of your enemies,” He meant He makes a place for you in His presence right in front of all who would try to take you out of it.

The Lord Is Doing Something In My Heart

By Kathy Mote

 

 

The Lord is doing something in my heart that I feel I should share. Perhaps it will help to ease the pain in someone else's heart to understand what He is doing in His creation, which is what we are seeing today.

 

He has been showing me what greed and pride and the thirst and hunger for power does in the human heart. It makes them rise up. It leads to the love of death. That just sounds crazy, but it is truth, and it is rampant in the world we live in.

 

This is what is being revealed in all who do not stand before Him and bow before Him. What we see in the world is the opposite of humble, and He is calling for it to be removed like a bad seed before we move deeper into His presence. This is what takes us out of His presence, and it nearly ripped my guts out to see and hear and understand, that just like mold in a loaf of bread, this is what happens to all who are not preserved by being surrendered to Him.

 

What our hearts are capable of is not what we would choose to do, it is what we would BE without His presence making our heart right by filling us with a desire for Him. That is what He is doing in His Beloved, and the whole world is a tool in His hand. Perhaps I go too far in saying that, but He said to me many times that the world was set in place just to bring us to Him.

 

So humility is the keyword for today, and I am beyond grateful for that. It is part of how He is preparing us for what is to come. If He hadn't checked our hearts, we would become the very thing we begged Him to take out of our way. We would be just like those we have prayed so long to be changed. He is a good Father, He will change us first.

In A Time

By Kathy Mote

 

 

In a time when all of creation rises up against Him, take heart, knowing that you are called to Him.

Every Promise

By Kathy Mote

 

 

Every promise God made you is fulfilled as you are brought into His presence. His promise of Life is fulfilled by His presence. Something I learned today is every promise God made us brings us into His presence.

 

We are in the 11th hour of our faith, and He is refining our hearts as we face the point of our faith in Him. Our trust is a matter of survival. The Lord is not finished. He will be praised in a time when no man can claim victory that belongs to Him. He is faithful.
