Something Comes To My Thinking Lately

By Kathy Mote

 

 

Something comes to my thinking lately that I would like to share. We say we open our heart to Him, but it is He that opens our heart to come to Him.

 

We say we give our life to Him, but He gives us our life to live with Him. People say to give Him our life is a sacrifice, but it's a joy to be with Him. People also say it was a sacrifice for Him to come to us, but it was an act of love for Him. 

 

We can only speak of what we see and know and understand. We have been speaking from the perspective of what we give up but not of what we have gained. It's time to know the Truth of His love for us. It's time to truly know Him.

There Is Such Wisdom In The Lord’s Prayer

By Kathy Mote

 

 

There is such wisdom in the Lord's prayer. It teaches us to honor our Father and trust Him to bring about His will. That alone takes all the stress out of life. 

 

It says He will provide what we need in this life and tells us to trust Him as we stand before Him. It also says all things belong to Him. But nowhere does it say we bring about His will to fill us and heal us and make us as He is. That is for Him. 

 

Such a simple lesson in walking with Him to know Him as He is. These are things He would reveal as we desired Him with all our heart. So many act out what they read, thinking that is faith. But it is not. 

 

In all my years of seeing this type of behavior, no one ever said, Lord I surrender my heart to You. Change me. Instead people were taught to focus on each other and minister to each other. So much in His name but so little in His presence. Will He come and say depart from Me, I never knew you.

 

There is a time coming when He will astound the human race. He will reveal His power to heal by making us one with Him. Faith isn't about walking in the flesh of your dreams, it's about living in His presence, and trusting Him in all things.

I’m Going To Share What The Lord Showed Me

By Kathy Mote

 

 

I'm going to share what the Lord showed me, but it isn't what most people believe. It is, however, how I live. Not because I figured this out myself, but because it is how the Lord taught me He is. 

 

He said no matter how daunting our calling is, no matter how impossible His promise is to us, we do not carry the burden to fulfill His promise to us. It is not by our faith that His will is fulfilled, it is by His.  

 

This is what He wants from us, to trust Him and surrender our heart. He is the only one who can bring His will to pass. He is the only one who can keep us in His arms and that is the only thing we want. 

 

People have made a religion out of what the Bible says, but He is the Living God and the promises are His. He fulfills them in each one of us as we give our heart to Him. What we see as the impossible is a mere act of love to Him. 

 

His promises are bigger than we know or understand. He promised to make us as He is as He draws us to Him. His love teaches our heart to trust in Him. How could we possibly do that ourselves. He has been knitting our heart together with His all of our lives.

This May Cause an Argument

By Kathy Mote

 

 

This may cause an argument, but you are not here to be awesome, wonderful you. You are here to be filled by Him. When people see you, they should see awesome, wonderful Him.

The Lord

By Kathy Mote

 

 

The Lord will expose everything in your heart that, if left unchallenged, would take you out of His presence at some point. It is your pride that will march you away from Him. So it is His way to withdraw your comfort just a moment as He exposes these things. That is how He makes sure they are surrendered. 

 

If you were to remain in the comfort of His presence without surrender, these things would grow up in you and indeed they are already growing up in you, causing discontent. So He does not allow this to remain in you. Removing them is how He keeps you pure. 

 

So if you are experiencing this today, know this is your Father taking from you all that would take you from Him. It will only take Him a minute. It is time to learn that surrender is the response He desires from His child.

Beloved

By Kathy Mote

 

 

Beloved, instead of thinking you are being rejected in this life, you will see that the Lord is pulling you away, instead. And thus, you will feel no more pain of rejection. You will feel His protective hand on your heart instead.

 

 

 

 

Today

Today is the day of surrendering many things. That is where our peace is.

The Carnal Nature

By Kathy Mote

 

 

The carnal nature is what we are born with. Carnal. Carne. Flesh. It doesn't see or hear or perceive the Truth. It doesn't know His heart or hear His voice. So the only way to know the Lord is for the Lord to speak to our heart and to hear Him, we open our heart to Him. 

 

So, every person you see is living by the nature they were born with until He enters and changes their heart. Every single one of us is the workmanship of His own hands. All of creation is His workmanship, and He isn't done. 

 

He promised to fill all of creation with the knowledge of God and the fullness of all that is in God's heart. We are talking about the intimately personal revelation of Him that comes only by being filled. 

But people are all so busy living the life that is set before them, unaware of what He is doing. Scripture says the last days will be as Noah's days were when people were oblivious to Him and didn't pay any attention to anything but their own desires. 

 

There's just one difference between Noah's day and ours and it's a pretty big difference, if you ask me. Instead of destroying everything like He did in the flood, He will fill all of creation with the fullness of His heart. Revival is a trivial word for what is about to occur.

As I Sat Down To My Keyboard

By Kathy Mote

 

 

As I sat down to my keyboard, the Lord said, You are My delight. How is it that I feel anything but delightful. His ways are not our ways. Our ways are carnal and selfish and we measure our life by how we feel when we should measure our life by His presence. Yet He loves us and delights in all of us.

 

As I slept, my Father spoke to me. He encouraged me all night. He said, You live by every word I say to your heart. You eat it like your daily bread and as you speak it, it is like honey on your tongue.

 

 Hearing My voice makes you crave more of Me. What you desire is to know My heart. 

 

He said what He speaks to our heart becomes the fuel that sustains us. It encourages us, reveals His love and gives us the courage to face everything we face in our life. He speaks to us as we sleep, though few of us realize this. We awake knowing that we desire more of Him in our heart. 

 

So what may seem like an impossible dream becomes the sweetness that sustains our heart. We may travail to be filled completely, but that travail is the yearning of our heart. That shows us how His ways are different. Our travail isn't just our desire for Him, it is His work in us to bring us into His heart.
