When You Don’t See What The Lord Is Intending

By Kathy Mote



When you don't see what the Lord is intending, your heart is conflicted. When you don't see what His objective is, your heart is not confident, and you are unable to stand in the midst of all that is happening.


When you don't understand His purpose in what you see, what you see pulls your heartstrings, and instead of being steadfast, you are fearful. This is when you are torn, confused, afraid and conflicted. You are resenting the enemy.


But the Lord is moving with great purpose. He is gaining momentum and the devil does not stop Him. The devil is a tool. He is no deterrent. The Truth is not being withheld. The Lord is bringing justice to every heart and in their perfect time they will be able to hear Him. You who know the Truth, stand in it, confident in Him and unaffected.




This Is What The Lord Said

By Kathy Mote



This is what the Lord said. I am a firewall around you, and I stand between you and the rest. Nothing comes to you but Me, so to Me should be your response. I do not do this to test you. I do this to settle your heart. No harm will come to you as you are hidden in the folds of My robe. When the enemy comes looking for you, all he will see is My hand. No mischief will befall you, for no matter what he threatens, it won't get past My hand.




The Lord

The Lord is preparing us all.

The Utter Devastation

By Kathy Mote



The utter devastation you feel when He calls for utter surrender just empties you. In the moment, you are not certain you will continue to be who you are, and that's the point. You won't. It was only after He required me to surrender all that I am and all that I will be that He made me able to be as I am called. (We have to be filled to be as we are called.)


But it wasn't just hearing His voice that was at stake, it was being made able to obey and become His desire. He once told me there's no sense in releasing a promise He was not ready to fulfill in us. Fulfilling His promise means making us what He desires. He does this as He fills us, for we are as He is by His presence in us. This is more beauty than any heart could desire.

This Is What The Lord Said

By Kathy Mote



This is what the Lord said to me as He removed conflict and weakness from my heart. He said, When your obedience is lacking, your heart is conflicted.

He referred to not having complete trust in Him. To trust in Him, you have to hear and follow His voice.


Accepting His Lordship in your heart expresses your surrender to Him, and your surrender expresses your trust. That is how we walk with Him without having conflict in our heart.


Not doing what our natural thinking would have us do, but knowing what the Lord said to us and trusting in Him is simple obedience.


This is the place He is bringing us, to be so surrendered and trusting that obedience is our heart's response to Him and what He said to us. That is simple trust.


He is calling us out of our own thinking. He's calling us into His presence to know His heart. That is how we will live.


He is removing all the conflict from our heart and our thoughts. That is the confidence we will have in Him as He brings an end to our travail and the fear and discomfort we have been experiencing.

When He looks at your heart and sees all the changes He made, He will smile and say, I did that. It's My presence in her that did that.

this is so beautiful and such a testimony to the Lord's healing power and sanctification through our suffering. Much of my walk with Christ is similar to yours.
