The Lord’s Presence

By Kathy Mote

 

 

It is actually the Lord's presence that protects us and that is the devil's rebuke. Like every promise of Life and life abundant, it is brought about by the Lord's presence, not by something we say or do.

To Stand In The Lord’s Presence

By Kathy Mote

 

 

To stand in the Lord's presence, protected and filled with peace, is to see the devil's fiercest rebuke. The presence of the Lord is not where the devil wants to be. He flees as far from the Lord as he can go.

 

One thing I have learned in recent years is the devil is not my concern. Standing before the Lord as He brings me into His presence is. Our choice was given to us to decide whether or not to follow Him and enter in.

 

As I stand with the Lord with a humble heart, the devil is nowhere near, he is done, done for and done in. It is the devil's undoing as the Lord has His way. That is the point of our salvation and deliverance. We belong to the Lord and we are in the Lord's hands.

How Many Times

By Kathy Mote

 

 

How many times do we miss the Holy Spirit's corrections by thinking He is talking to us about someone else. He is resident to correct and lead our heart, not help us lead and direct someone else. 

 

Only the humble can hear Him, and only those listening can take His leading to heart. The Holy Spirit is resident to speak to you and correct your heart before He will speak to you about someone else.

 

So many of us who are filled with the Holy Spirit misinterpret His leading because of the weakness of our own fleshly heart. We are struggling with a God complex without realizing that pride is the greatest pitfall of all, and that's the Truth.

It Is A Good Day

By Kathy Mote

 

 

It is a good day to see the Lord's work in you with fresh eyes and a grateful heart. What the Lord is doing in His Beloved can only be received by those who seek Him with a humble heart.

 

Something I have learned recently is the pride in your own heart will draw a crowd of the unsavory type. Pride will draw people who are seeking power, not the Lord. It is like an open door, and they come to devour.

 

But a humble heart doesn't draw people to itself as it stands before the Lord. A humble heart is drawn into His presence, a precious and valuable gift most people disrespect, shun and abhor. It offends their own pride and desire for power.

 

As for those who are in His presence, your devotion to Him is actually His devotion to you. This is His presence working in you to correct you as He creates His image in you. He will draw you close, where your pride and weakness are removed. He will take all that moves your heart from Him and cast it far from you. He will draw you into His arms and fill you, giving you strength that only His comforting presence can give. This is His heart moving in you so that you will never be moved.

God Is Really Railing

By Kathy Mote

 

 

God is really railing on religion today. The next time you read your Bible, think of it as something HE will do in you as you trust in Him.

The Only Way

By Kathy Mote

 

 

The only way you fully understand scripture is for the Lord to bring the Life it speaks of into you. His is a living Word. The Truth of His Word is His presence, and it is meant to be lived in. The Truth God gave us is in His presence. He is where Life is. It means nothing to say the words. We weren't meant to say the words, we were meant to be given Life in Him.

I Am Constantly Humbled

By Kathy Mote

 

 

I am constantly humbled and at a loss, trying to convey what He shows me using words that don't do justice to the Life He gives. He said nothing is perfect until He comes. When He comes we will know Him as He is.

 

But trying to say what we see is like describing a butterfly using paper wings. He said our words do not create and that is why they don't give Life. His do as He quickens our heart. Our words are like little building blocks with small pictures on the side. They can only describe.

 

There's no need to be frustrated as we obey our calling to speak. He will give Life to the hearers as He calls them to Him. I hope this encourages all who struggle to say what He reveals to their heart. Perhaps our true calling is simply to LIVE and trust that His Spirit will draw them to Him.
