To Be Carnal

By Kathy Mote



To be carnal is to act without Him, to react to your environment and your circumstance without considering Him. To walk by His Spirit is to hear and follow His voice. You have been brought to the place where only your two feet can stand. No crowds, no parades, just you and Him. This is the mountaintop where you have been called to stand. As the Lord raises a standard by His own hand, His presence will be clearly seen in the Earth.


In His presence is where you stand. Many will see Him as you see Him, and they will come to Him upon hearing Him. But as they walk in their flesh, do not pay any heed to them. Do not look to the right or to the left. Look only to Him. That is how you stand where you stand, giving your heart to Him to hear Him. He will move by His Spirit to call all to Him. There is a great shaking and every heart is being refined.

Many Times

By Kathy Mote



Many times have I seen the Father speaking to the Son. One on the throne, One facing the throne. Jesus always brings me to stand before my Father's throne.

I tried to understand, He is Spirit, the Triune God, three but One. I run out of brain, but I don't run out of relationship with Him in my heart. I know Him by how He speaks to me, but I don't have the words to explain it to someone else.

Today He said, Are you not mother and daughter both?


That blew out the cobwebs, oh boy oh boy!  This speaks to me of function, not identity, for both are Him. I realize this is by no means a complete explanation, but it helped so much!


I asked Him about this many years ago. His answer was to take years to prepare my heart in my relationship with Him. Respect and love for Him is how I see Him. To know Him as Daddy is to know His love and that establishes your heart. But to understand Him is not something that will fit in your mind.

Now That You Know

The Lord said, “Now that you know (through all of your humbling) who you are not, I will show you who you are.”

Seeing Only The Physical Aspect Of Life

By Kathy Mote



Seeing only the physical aspect of life, we don't realize our Spirit man is being made here. Not seeing what lies beyond this life, we don't realize our hearts are being filled by Him. Not seeing our destination, we are afraid to leave here. Not realizing that we are held in His arms, we are too often fearful. Not realizing His deep and endless love for us, we often fail to trust Him.

Beloved, you're not turning into the sweet, caring and strong person that you are in spite of those around you, but because of them.

When Someone Doesn’t Respect Me

By Kathy Mote



When someone doesn't respect me or my obedience to the Lord, they don't respect what the Lord is doing in me. Their disrespect comes from a heart that is prideful, and where I never argue, neither do I abide them. The reason I am intolerant of someone else's pride is their pride declares they are above Him. It is not my pride that makes me intolerant of their pride, it is His Spirit in me that refuses to agree with them.

I Don’t Know How

By Kathy Mote



I don't know how many of you might be going through the same thing, but I am led to share what the Lord is doing in me. I keep regurgitating old memories, mostly of the injustices that have changed my life. After several days of this, I felt as though I was rolling downhill. This is not how I usually think.


I asked the Lord if we could deal with all of them at one time. He lovingly told me to mind my own business and trust Him to mind His. I waited for what He would say to me next. I wanted to be rid of the angst from memories of long ago. But they had indeed changed my life. He asked me to go one step beyond surrender and know that my enitre life was in His hands.


He said, Where you are concerned, nothing has been left to chance. I have seen to, and redeemed, every detail. Every slight, every insult, every injustice you have endured taught you to recognize a lie and a liar when you see one, to look both in the face and know it is not who you are meant to be. This has made you who you are today.


Odd that He would describe my life and my reaction to my life in this way. Every lie and injustice I endured humbled me deeply at the time. I had always felt they had changed my life, taking everything away from me.


But the Lord assured me this is not the case. The woman He purposed me to be from the beginning now stands before Him today, redeemed by His love in every way, knowing He is Lord of her heart and her life, owing nothing to the world she is in.
