He Didn’t Hold You Back

By Kathy Mote



He didn't hold you back, He humbled your heart. You spent your life in the wine press for a very good reason. That was His mercy at work in your life. He kept you from being what you would have been without Him. What a terrible sight that would have been. 


But now you are beautiful to behold, and all of Heaven admires His work in your heart. Do not think He is finished with you, though, because now you will learn to recognize His hand. 


You cannot see your future. You don't know what He saved you from. You don't see His reason for pressing your life to change your heart. But you don't have to know what your future would have been, you only have to know His heart. 


You are His Beloved and He has been pressing you your entire life. Your heart has a particular shape now that it did not naturally possess. It has His thumb and fingerprint on it, so that what comes to your heart flows back up to Him. 


He has shown you great mercy in pressing your heart. Now you will respond to Him in all things. And you will walk in greater faith than you have ever known just by loving Him back.

You Don’t Bring Your Situation Before The Lord

By Kathy Mote



You don't bring your situation before the Lord, you bring your heart before Him. He already knows your situation. What He wants to know is your choice in it.

There Are Things You See As Injustices

By Kathy Mote



There are things you see as injustices in your life, and to this day they still bother you. Those people who humbled your heart set you up to receive abundance unseen, and to do that you need to walk in His presence. You have no idea how complex His will for you is, or all He has done to bring you into it. 


To your thinking, those situations seem almost supernatural. They would just about have to be. But that is how over the top His blessings will be, and He humbled your heart to prepare you to walk in them. 


If He had picked you up and blessed your life without tempering your heart, you would be worse than those He used to humble you. They are not your enemy, friend, arrogance is, and that is what He removed from you. Thank Him.

This Is How Those Who Used To Be Proud Turned Their Heart

By Kathy Mote



This is how those who used to be proud turned their heart to the Lord, saying, Why have I thought the words I heard were for someone else when had I heard them myself, my own heart would be brought to You.






There Are Very Few People

By Kathy Mote



There are very few people the Lord has brought into His presence to live by the sound of His voice only. For them, there is no other goal, no other standard by which to live, no desire in their heart but Him. They have surrendered their heart to Him and He fills them. 


He has called His remnant to Him, He is their entire perspective and He sees His own reflection in them.



Nothing Of His Promise To You

By Kathy Mote



Nothing of His promise to you comes to you outside of His relationship with you. It is in that relationship that He fills you with all that God promised you.


The bottom line is you give Him your heart and He will enter you and live in you. That is how He gives Life to you. 


You will hear His voice as He speaks to you and that is how He will commune with you. There is nothing more for you to do but follow Him as He leads you. Who you are is His work in you. How you are is your response to Him.

People Who Are Tossed Around On A Stormy Sea

By Kathy Mote



People who are tossed around on a stormy sea do not experience the peace people on solid ground experience. Jesus is the Rock upon which we stand and there is peace in Him. If all you see is a stormy sea, turn your eyes and your heart to Him and trust in Him to live in Him. 



That sounds almost too simple, doesn't it? But that is the Truth. He is Spirit and to walk in His presence is to live by His Spirit. He is our peace, joy and comfort. He is not a tempest. I hear the Lord say, If you want peace, trust in Him and stop embracing a tempest.

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.
