The Jezebel Spirit

By Kathy Mote

 

 

The Jezebel spirit doesn't hate you, it sees you as more of a trophy as it competes with the prominence, power and anointing of God.

People Make A Huge Mistake

By Kathy Mote

 

 

People make a huge mistake when they expect God to act like they think He should. We cannot define God by what's in our own thinking. Those who do this do not know Him as Lord, and they end up living like an orphan, confused by anger, hurt, disappointment and frustration. Not accepting His Lordship, you forfeit the peace in His presence. We should rejoice in His presence, not deprive the world of His mercy.

 

 

 

Whatever

Whatever you are facing this moment, surrender your heart to Him.

I Used To Take Care Of Everyone Around Me

By Kathy Mote

 

 

I used to take care of everyone around me. When my daughter was young, she drew a caricature of me leaping into the air with her tucked under my arm, cape flying in the wind behind me. 

 

But yesterday it became obvious that both my children think they need to manage my interactions and affairs. They have even begun to speak for me. As I took a deep breath to begin my objections, the Holy Spirit checked my heart. His still, small, quiet voice made me become more still, small and quiet than He is to be able to hear Him. 

 

As I settled down to hear what Jesus would say to me, He looked at my heart and said, Is this your response to Me? In my heart, I quickly scuttled back under His protective wing like a baby duckling, and thanked Him for protecting me and looking out for me. This is how the Lord saved me from saying hurtful words. This is also how He kept me from losing my way in His will for my life, my heart and my relationship with my children. 

 

The next day I peaceably asked my daughter if she considered me infirm, or in any way in need of her managing intervention to protect me. My beautiful daughter who would rather eat mud than offend me looked me right in the eye and said, Yes. Immediately, there was that still, small and quiet advice being pressed into my heart to listen to the Lord for an answer. 

 

He reminded me of that drawing she made over 30 years ago and I saw that I was no longer that woman. Now I am in the position to rest, to be protected, taken care of and looked out for. This was the expression of my Father's heart for me, and it is from Him that I receive this. 

 

Could it be that some of us are entering a time of deep and tender refinement after so many long and difficult years where our burdens were heavy. Our burdens have been lifted. The load we carry has shifted, and we need to listen deeply to rest and realize His tender care of us.

I Would Like To Share What The Lord Taught Me

By Kathy Mote

 

 

I would like to share what the Lord taught me about healing as He dealt with my swollen ankles. This swelling was becoming a nightly event, so I used essential oils to reduce the swelling only to see my ankles swell up again. 

 

As I reached for my essential oils about two weeks ago, the Lord said, You don't need that. So I obeyed Him and trusted that He would take care of me. It was just a little fluid retention after all. But the Lord said, You have a bigger problem than that, Kid. 

 

So this is what I learned about His heart regarding healing. It is His way of taking care of us and He is very protective. Like everything else He provides for us, it is His response to our trusting obedience. He is Lord first, then He takes care of us. What I mean is, we surrender our heart and accept what He says to us, and He takes care of us as we trust Him. 

 

To walk with Him like this, He is Lord in our heart. But to walk with the Bible is religion. We receive nothing by chanting scripture. It isn't scripture that answers our prayers, He does. Faith is Him being Lord in our heart. We do not receive what we want or need 'in His name', for that is not receiving Him. 

 

We can do nothing without Him and we receive nothing except directly from Him. That is our relationship with Him. Heart to heart, face to face, He is Lord of us, for us, over us, and in us. That is how He fills us. Him being LORD supersedes any scripture you may think you are understanding. Thank you for reading.

It Was A Shock

By Kathy Mote

 

 

It was a shock to see the Lord bless and not punish one who had persecuted, tormented and intentionally harmed me for decades. This person caused much pain and suffering. He was set on a high hill and given wealth, and it tested my heart to be shown this. Did I really hope the Lord would despise him? Punish him? God doesn't punish His tools, He often pardons and heals them. 

 

I was disappointed to see that I resented the Lord blessing the one He used to humble me. I asked the Lord why I was allowed to see it. I had been content to be as I am in His presence, but the Lord seems intent on showing me His will in full disclosure of His heart for me. His answer was, To humble your heart to make you as I AM is, and always was, My reason. 

 

So this is the freedom and comfort that I have been brought to. To live my life in the Lord's arms with nothing in my heart but His love for me. This is the highest hill one can live on. Surrendering my heart brings me face to face with Him, and in His presence, I am content in His will for me. 

 

His presence is a blazing fire in my heart, purifying all my thinking. My life has been my Daddy's will and His doing, all of it, and He alone is responsible. It is a step up and into His arms to know my life is between me and Him only. 

 

So as I settle down into the warmth of His presence, I am, for the first time, totally free of grief for this life and everything that happened in it, and that is saying a lot. From this vantage point, it all looks supernatural.

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.
