If God is for me . . . who can be against me?

I don't think . . .

I Don’t Think

By Kathy Mote

 

 

I don't think anyone knowingly goes against God. Not when they can see and hear and perceive that He is One who created them. No, I truly believe the lost are simply that. Lost. Lost and in the dark, totally unaware of Him.

 

No one in recorded history ever blew Him off face to face. He is too powerful, too great. Upon being brought into His presence, no one said, No thanks. Just hearing His voice changes your heart, making you yearn for more of Him as He wakes you up to Him. As He says your name, He brings you before Him.

 

Today I trust He will call the lost to Him. All those He has purposed in His heart to know Him will come to Him. Rather than focus on how grievous the behavior of the lost is as they are unaware of Him, let us be confident in His ability to call them to Him. The lost are acting out so badly because they are expressing their absolute need of Him. As He searches every heart, may He also awaken them.

Your Ability

By Kathy Mote

 

 

Your ability to be unaffected by success is measured by your ability to handle rejection without taking it personally. Both require knowing it is the Lord who accomplishes His will.

I’ve Always Felt Ill At Ease

By Kathy Mote

I've always felt ill at ease in the world, knowing it's not a place I belong or feel welcome. But I got this perspective from being rejected in the world, not by thinking I knew something they didn't.

 

This has been on my mind lately, that those in the world are the odd ones who are out of the Lord's presence. That makes me the one in the right, but the humility I learned keeps me from rising to this thinking.

 

As I was being scorned and rejected, I learned the Lord's heart and I learned to respect it. When the Lord said, I have humbled you Myself, He meant He has allowed us to learn to think and walk humbly before Him. It's humility that will keep our heart before Him when He deals with those who don't know Him. Humility shows deep respect for Him, and He desires to see it in His children.

I Bought A Lovely 5 Qt. Stock Pot

By Kathy Mote

 

 

I bought a lovely 5 qt. stock pot, took it home, washed it and put it to good use. But within minutes, I realize that my stock pot and I were going to have a problem. The handles were not insulated, and as I touched one to steady the pan, I burned my hand.

 

Never one to be daunted, I was determined to keep and use my pan. The next day while cooking dinner, I forgot about the handles, and again I burned my hand.

 

I know my limitations. I am not scatterbrained or an airhead. I am preoccupied. I have a lot on my mind. I will not be able to remember that the handles get hot no matter how hard I try. I waited for the Lord to send help.

Just then I looked over and saw an old, worn potholder with a picture of santa on it. It was the perfect answer to my problem. I cut it in half and sewed a cover for each handle on the pan.

 

I used the pan as I normally would, and the covers on the handles worked just fine. I am delighted with them. In fact, they even match! When I washed the pan, the handles were also washed, drying nicely within the hour. Problem solved.

 

So I am sharing this silly little post to say, never give up when faced with life's disappointments, big or small. The Lord will make a way. He always does. We are protected and provided for. We turn to Him for wisdom and He doesn't let us down. I am reminded of the sunflower, always turning to face Him, rain or shine.

I Probably Shouldn’t Say This

By Kathy Mote

 

 

I probably shouldn't say this, especially on the eve of a precious holiday. Although I love what the holiday stands for, I don't celebrate it. I have never done that because He never led me to as I walked in His presence. I felt bad about not thinking like everyone else, so I asked Him why I am this way. He said, I am not celebrating, I am doing what I was told.

 

That's what I rose to do.

 

In truth, I am always celebrating as He raises me, which is what He was raised to do. Every day is precious as He fulfills God's promise to raise me as His own. This is the thinking of just one gal as she follows Him, living to celebrate what He rose to do.

You Walk In His Presence

By Kathy Mote

 

 

You walk in His presence, you Live by His Spirit, above the darkness, in His Light. Your heart is a place He moves and breathes in. He has taken up residence, and you are changed. In His presence you overcome the darkness of not knowing Him. This is Life for those who belong to Him.

 

When you walk with Him this closely you are continually humble. He changes your heart as you see Him. As you follow Him, He is teaching you to Live. From glory to glory He reveals His presence in you. He is building you, even though you feel undone. He is teaching your heart to carry the Light.

 

You will shine all the brighter in a world that grows dark. The darker the world, the brighter you will shine. You will stand out. Those in the dark are making their own way. They are challenged by the Light so they hate the Light.

The day will come when you will not feel undone. The Lord will cause the Light in you to rise. The greater the darkness His Light shines in, the greater the change the Light brings. Having learned to remain in His presence, you will only know confidence and strength in Him.

 This is to say you will always have the heart He taught you to honor Him in. When He moves, you will move with Him. When He arises, you will rise with Him. This is when you will see all darkness flee.
