What Did God Do

By Kathy Mote

 

 

What did God do to the Israelites who only knew bondage and fear? They were carnal in their thinking, they were not used to hearing Him. He delivered them from their bondage, and what a big show that was! Then He led them through the wilderness, teaching them to follow Him.

 

He fed them every day, He kept them safe from harm. He revealed only that which they could follow, then taught them to honor His heart. He brought them into the place He had set aside for them. It was a garden compared to where they had been. He told them how to enter, then gave them the courage to enter in.

 

If this sounds familiar, it is His way in us. He is delivering many from carnal thinking, from a life of being dead to Him. The branch that was once barren is feeling new Life in it. The hearts who hear Him no longer live without Him.

The Lord Said

The Lord said, “Don't worry about people's opinion. That's not what He said to you.”

Have You Felt

By Kathy Mote

 

 

Have you felt like you could just slip into a quiet place, go to sleep, and stay there? After all you've been through, that would be just fine. You have no idea what more to look forward to. The Lord has let you think that being emptied is all there is and all there will be. As if to ask, would that be alright with you.

 

But being emptied is just a prelude. There is more than this. This is full surrender, and He likes your heart like this. This is a rare work He does, and not many will bow to Him like this. Each have gone their own way, living unto themselves. There are few who give their heart to Him like He has asked you to.

 

This is what it means to you who are called into His presence. You are emptied of your thoughts and ways as you are being raised by Him. His purpose is to see His desire for all of creation live in you. It's His thoughts, His desires and His ways that He places like living treasure in you. He is pleased, and all of Heaven delights in His presence in you, and they watch you. They have waited a long time to see what He has done in you.

Did You Know

By Kathy Mote

 

 

Did you know that Moses frequently lost his temper with the Israelites? He threw the stone tablets, he disobeyed God as he struck the rock and anger. He was frequently aggravated by their ignorance yet he was the one God used to deliver His people from Egypt. These are the very reasons God benched Moses and did not allow him to go into the Promised land. Moses was not perfectly behaved because he was not perfect.

 

Having said that, I ask you who feel justified in criticizing a man God would send to bring about His will today, is it wise to criticize, and judge his appearance or demeanor? Would we judge a book by its cover? Would we confuse the man's heart with the Lord's heart who sent Him? Or do we look for the Lord's will, for that is what will become of us! God never said His tools were perfect, He said His will was perfect.

The Carnally Minded

By Kathy Mote

 

 

The carnally minded have not surrendered their heart to Him, and so they do not hear Him. If they don't hear Him, they will not hear you. It's best not to haggle with them. You cannot explain Life to them, and you are not walking in Him to convince them. The Lord will convince them. He said right now we are only a storefront of what He will make of us.

As I Stood

By Kathy Mote

 

As I stood before my Father's throne, I said, Lord I love my page! I said this because I express everything that He reveals to me on it. He pointed His finger directly at my heart and said, I love MY page, for in it is every desire I revealed to you.

I Know It Is Hard

By Kathy Mote

 

 

I know it is hard not to look at the news. But when you are looking at the world, you become a part of the world, for that is where your heart is. When you are looking at the Lord, you remain in Him and He is where your heart is. Remaining in Him, you are part of the answer He is sending into the world to heal it. I share this, knowing that no one will hear me. But I share this knowing those He calls to Him will hear Him.

 

*So, two hours later, after several people have become upset by this, I feel I must add something to this. Your heart stands before Him should you find yourself embroiled in a heart rending crisis. Your answer comes from Him so your heart looks to Him for deliverance. Having loved ones in Afghanistan, you should not be offended by the heart of this message. You should instead be encouraged. Do you not stand before Him and wait on HIM to release them? And are you not brought into His presence to intercede for them?

The Lord Is Refining Every Heart

By Kathy Mote

 

 

The Lord is refining every heart. I will share what He is doing in my own heart because it is a classic example of what He is doing in everyone else's. Every thought in me, which comes from my nature is being refined in His presence by Holy fire. He is going deeper than my choices to examine my nature.

 

What will not stand in His presence has got to go because it will take us out of His presence. Only His will stands in His presence. His will is the expression of His heart, and that is what He is filling us with.

 

It's your nature that you express when you speak, think or act, and that comes from your heart, showing where your heart is. It may be your choice to not express this, but you are as you are and He knows you. He sees your heart and what will become of you if it isn't changed and filled by Him. This is something you cannot possibly anticipate. Only He can.

 

He is bringing us deeper, far deeper into His presence to know Him. He is not approving of our thoughts, He is revealing His. The human heart is not made to carry the weight of His glory. It is far better that He reveal the glory of His presence in us, and as He does this, we will be humbled in His presence. We are not called to be in charge of the glory of God, we are called to be filled with it as He refines our heart before Him.

 

So every aspect of our human nature is being refined. Most of us have been feeling undone, unsure and bewildered by this correction. But He is getting to the core of our heart that He might fill it, and everything that doesn't stand in Him will bow before Him. That is the kind of day we are having. As for me, my heart's response is to thank Him. He is Spirit, and does this to keep us in Him.
