There Are Things I Am Facing In My Personal Life

By Kathy Mote

 

 

There are things I am facing in my personal life that I see as a threat. The very thought of them fills my heart with dread. My first instinct is to dismiss my fear of them, but the Lord saw what I was doing and He gestured to what I was holding out of sight like something held behind my back. He said, What do you have there, kid? Is that yours, or is it Mine?

 

So to deal with it, I had to fess up...as my grandma would say. But to do that, I had to face Him and to face Him I had to trust Him as I call Him Lord of my heart. If I trust Him, I trust His will. Our level of intimacy is our level of honesty and that is the bond between Him and me. The key to trust is surrender pure and simple and that is because He is LORD.

 

I am learning that we don't conquer our fears. We surrender them to Him and receive His will instead. We do this in His presence and there is a measure of peace in this for us. So each thing we surrender to Him brings us closer to Him as we rest in His arms. We learn of His goodness this way.

 

He is making us warriors of His heart, filled with courage as we learn to trust. It's not like we are throwing our fears at Him hoping He will make all the unpleasant things go away (even though that's exactly what He does). We are learning what courage is as we stand before Him with a faithful heart, accepting what He will make of our life. That is His perfect will for us.

Our Father’s Love

By Kathy Mote

 

 

Our Father's love for us is so deep, it will never grow cold. His care of us is so sure, it will never fail. All He has done is perfect. We will lack no good thing. We will never leave Him, our hearts will never fail, and we will never stray. We will always delight in the delight in Him.

 

But without His finished work in us, we weren't built to last. With no strength of our own, we can't face eternity alone. We are the least of His creation, meant to enter His arms filled with His own breath. He embraces us to raise us up. He fills us to make us as He is.

 

But what of our adversary in this place and time. Such a big deal he is. He scorns us because of who we are to God's heart. He doesn't think we will make it. In fact, because of our weakness, he celebrates our demise. In his arrogance, he is sure of it. Won't he be shocked when He sees what beauty the Lord will make of us. It will be flawless.

 

The devil scorns the care the Lord gives us because he can't get past it. Our adversary is a sore loser. He's always been too impressed with himself. That's the problem with him. The Lord said the devil knew what our Father purposed for us. That's why he fights against it so hard.

 

But the Lord is sure of His desire for us. He has it all worked out. He will complete all He has begun. Although He isn't finished, He is sure of what we will become. Our delight is His breath in us. His delight is His heart beating in ours! Eye has not seen nor has it entered our heart all He desires for us.

Does it change your thinking and your heart to realize He is not raising the world, He is raising us.

Our Heart Receiving Him

By Kathy Mote

 

 

Our heart receiving Him is how His covenant is established in the Earth. His covenant is that He be in us and we be in Him. We often look for Him to do something in the world around us, but His Word is established in our heart. His will is Jesus filling us and that is how we are established in Him. He has established Himself in us and we are so sure of Him that we will never doubt Him. In our heart is where He is established and that is how His will is fulfilled in us.

He Did Not Choose You

By Kathy Mote

 

 

He did not choose you out of all the people in the world...He chose to create you and send you here to teach you to give Him your heart. Here is where you learn to walk with Him. Here is where you learn to lay down every thought to receive and accept His heart.

 

Did you choose your children? Or are they the product of your own flesh... and where there is a big difference between how we bring our children into the world and how He creates us and sends us here with intent and purpose to protect us and bring us to Him, we love our children far less than He loves His...

 

He protects His Beloved from all that would take our heart from Him. We are living in a time of great warfare, and our safe place is in His arms as He calls us to know His heart. It is His presence guarding us that sets us apart.

 

Beloved one, He created you and you are dear to His heart. The image of you that He desired to see is what you are made of and you are learning to walk in it. Like we would paint or sculpt to express our heart to 'create', He created His children just like that. We are the expression of His heart and we will be complete as He fills us with all that is in His heart.

 

This should change your view and perspective so that you stop seeing your own merit as being the basis of His love. He created you because of His love for you and you are the image of that. He expressed His love to create the person you are and that is who is growing up and responding to Him. He guards you fiercely because is raising you. His love for you brings you to Him to know His heart, and loving Him with all your heart will be your response.
