I Am Learning
By Kathy Mote
I am learning what it means to be tucked under His right arm. There are scriptures that refer to being tucked under His wing. It means to be hidden in Him as you are a part of what He is doing in the Earth.
Not only does He protect you, you are made a part of what He is doing as He reveals His intentions to you. As He moves, you are aware of what He is doing. You are tucked safely under His wing. That is where He brought
you, for that is your place in Him. That is how you trust Him in all He is doing.
When A Weakness Is Found
By Kathy Mote
When a weakness is found in my heart, my Father immediately corrects
me. But to be honest, the weakness was always there, and as He reveals it to me, He is correcting me. I have learned that pride is 'seeing' myself. Good or bad, puffed up or cast down, pride is not 'seeing' HIM.
So, whenever He teaches me something deep and meaningful, there it is, pride that rises up to notice me. Today I ducked my head (choosing humility is not the same as being humble, which is to 'see' HIM) and immediately found myself standing before
My Father. I was brought before Him to be corrected.
He said, Do not compare yourself to anyone else. Do not compare what I tell you to say to what someone else has said. So, My heart heard, Do not look at anything but Me. Then He picked
me up and tucked me under His right arm right where He was seated.
I saw myself and I was ashamed, as if I had been given a time out. (I was disappointed in my own weakness, which is also weakness...)
He saw what was in my heart and picked me up like I was 2 years old, held me at arms length and asked if being tucked under His arm was a time out and an embarrassment.
Again He corrected my heart that
I might remain with Him. I opened my eyes, and as I looked at Him, my pride and self awareness took a backseat to my love for Him. His love for us is not only what draws us to Him, it's what keeps us with Him. His presence in our hearts keeps us right with
Him. That is how He keeps us safe from all that separates us from living in His perfect will, which is for us to be in Him.
