The Reason

By Kathy Mote

 

 

The reason so many have missed God's voice is they have treated the Bible as if it were given to them to practice. Their thinking is if they get the words right, Jesus will perform them. Or perhaps they think He has already performed them and they must believe to receive them. Fair enough, but what they have failed to do is receive HIM.

 

When you start with that, when you open your heart to accept HIM, you are calling Him Lord and that is when He answers you. When you open your heart, He enters. When He lives and moves and has His being in you, you live, move and have your being in His presence. Face to face is when you see the Truth, because as your salvation is personal, so is your relationship with Him. That is listening to Him and following Him, not leading Him.

 

God said His Word is Jesus. He also said His Word was with Him from the beginning, and He is His will for us. You can't leave His presence in anything you say or do, or you have missed Him, and walked away from Him. At the end of the age He will say, Depart from Me, I never knew you.

I didn’t Get To Be All I Wanted

By Kathy Mote

 

 

I didn't get to be all I wanted to be in this life, even though I worked so hard to. The Lord has made me what He wanted me to be, and truthfully, I wasn't consulted. He changed my life by parental override, saying I didn't know to ask for His will until He showed me.

 

He didn't ask for my opinion, He told me His. He didn't ask me for my permission, He invited me to trust Him. He said I didn't know any better than what my heart could desire, so He would give me what His heart desired.

 

He said my choice was given to me so that I could enter His presence, but to do that, I had to accept Him as Lord and walk in His ways with a glad heart. To remain in His presence was to trust Him and His will with gladness. As He said this, He was very excited.

 

As He embraces me, I embrace Him, but some of the things He gives me are easier to walk in than others. I love His abundant provision and I am protected in His presence, but I am challenged by what takes away my pride. He has declared Himself to be my confidence.

 

Our walk with Him is accepting His Lordship. We are not invited to tell Him what His will is, and as we are brought into His presence, it is foolish to tell Him what ours is. This is because when you know Him intimately, you accept His will from Him personally, and that is when you see how very powerful He is.

The Rain Came Down

By Kathy Mote

 

 

The rain came down, the streams rose, and the winds blew and beat against the house; yet it did not fall, because those within it trusted in the Lord with all their heart.

 

As storms raged all through the night, I heard the Lord reassure me. He soothed my heart and eased my trembling. I remembered all the times when the terrible had come near, but never came to me.

 

He said, You're alright. You are with Me. No harm will come to you. So as the rains came down and the storm raged and blew, peace was all that was in me. He is faithful who keeps me.

Our Obedience

By Kathy Mote

 

Our obedience isn't enough, and it isn't the point. To be obedient in His presence is. We are able to do this by His presence in us. We were made by Him. We were made for Him. His heart will always be our destination.
