The Lord Told
By Kathy Mote
The Lord told me that His presence made my life the way it was. Even recently I have struggled with the pain and heartache
of not being accepted in my own life. He showed me He was always working in me to bring me to my place in His heart. This has changed the way I see my life and people's reaction to Him in it.
He said it
was His presence that created the storm my life has always been, and when He revealed this to me, I saw only Him in it. Since my heart belonged to Him, then my response belonged to Him.
It was His authority
that people reacted to as they expressed their resentment, anger and fear. It was His authority that they rebelled against. It was Him they reviled, and in the midst of this, He humbled my heart and brought me up by Himself. He gathered me to Him even as I
was cast out.
Knowing it was His presence that brought me to Him has settled my heart and mind. I no longer see people's response to Him as I give my heart to Him. He has shown me His heart in all He has
done, and true to His nature, peace is my portion as everything belongs to Him.
After all these things were settled in my heart, I was brought before His throne cleansed and made whole in Him. He said,
Welcome home. You will never know the heartache of feeling cast out and orphaned again.
Just As It Has Been Said
Just as it has been said do not grow weary in well doing, the Lord said do not grow weary as you wait for Me.
The Lord Said
The Lord said, “It's time you knew the truth, Kid.”
Then He showed me in one glance that all
of the rejection and violent disrespect I have been the recipient of all my life represents mankind's response to Him and it was His presence that generated it. This is the very thing He will do away with during my lifetime. To those called to Him in this
generation, it's time to know who you are and what He will do before His return. Your place in this generation is your place in Him. That's why your life has been as it has been.
The Deeper The Lord Goes Into My Heart
By Kathy Mote
The deeper the Lord goes into my heart to bring me to Him, the more He uproots hidden hurt, anger and resentment. The more deeply
I am brought into His presence to be healed, the more I learn how to remain with Him. Keeping my heart set on the sweetness of His heart is how I keep from tripping and falling.
What Would You Say
By Kathy Mote
What would you say if someone came along and told you that you didn't matter to anyone, that your life wasn't worth anything among
men. As people miss the meaning of the gospel of peace, this is how they treat each other every day. They have no love because they don't know love, but what would it matter if they did? They can't save you or show you your place, only He can do that.
You will only know His love in your heart by receiving it from Him. Many of us are running to Him to learn the greatest lesson we will ever learn. Even as we are emptied of every expectation in our human heart, we
are being filled, for He is good, but He is good on His terms, and His terms are that everything be 'in Him'.
What devastation of desolation must come to those who think they can take God on their own
terms before they can come to know this in their own heart.
The emptied are the ones who are accepting God's terms and as they do they are humble before Him. That is your place in Him. That is the only way you will remain in Him. What
your pride once viewed as desolation is known to you now as His greatest gift, for He saved your life as you received.
I Have Come To Think
I have come to think the purpose of this life is to shape and form us to be with Him for all of eternity. We don't have eternal Life without being filled by Him. We can liken this life to being
birthed, because it is here our hearts are being formed. Spiritually speaking, we are coming to Life as He creates His image in us. He does this in our heart as we learn our place in His arms.
to walk with Him requires the element of our surrender and our consent to His presence in our heart. For us to be filled with His heart and return His love is what He wants.
He once told me that He cannot
force us to be as He wills, we have to consent to what He is doing in us. We embrace the ways of His heart as we are embraced. To enter our higher calling is why He gave us choice. He said He has enough angels to 'obey' Him, and we are called to more. Much
more. He isn't 'marrying' any of them.
So we continually surrender our heart to Him and respond to His heart as He reveals it to us. We give Him every desire in our heart that HE may direct our next thought.
May our next thought and our next step be of Him.
