If God is for me . . . who can be against me?

Man Has Always Assumed God Was Distant

By Kathy Mote

 

 

Man has always assumed God was distant and unloving, but their thoughts of Him were the state of their own heart. This is not true of His heart. Perhaps we cannot imagine God's love for us, but that is because of the emptiness in our heart before He fills us. 

 

He created us out of love and He expressed His love to do it. Each one of us is a special expression of His heart. He calls us His children, and in us He is raising His Bride, a companion of the heart that will stay by His side. He is everything to us and He teaches us to entrust everything to Him. 

 

He is filling us, and teaching us the thoughts in His heart. He gently breathes encouragements into us. He is creating us even as we respond to His touch. He is bringing our hearts together with His, revealing every facet of His love for us and when He is finished, He will gather us into His arms.

We Have Been Surrendering A Lot Lately

By Kathy Mote

 

 

We have been surrendering a lot lately to accept His will in our lives as He says great change is about to occur. Even as He spoke about this to me, I had to surrender my fear. The fear of what I might lose is what I had to surrender before I could accept His will. 

 

He said, What you surrender is not what will happen. I will fill you with My delight. You will be delighted. Even though I understood what He said to me, I could not imagine what it would be like. So, to accept what He said, I had to let go of my life. 

 

Surrender is entrusting Him with all to say yes to Him. He gives far more than He takes, but of this life, He will take all. You say yes to Him because HE is what you desire. You give Him your heart to stay in His arms. He is your home.

 

Some may have trouble with the idea of surrender. I suppose this is due to pride. In their thinking it is their right to demand the scriptures, but that is no walk with Him. As our response to Him is surrender, our hearts belong to Him, and in that there is no pride.

There Are Many Who Labor

By Kathy Mote

 

 

There are many who labor when they should be resting. I have learned that resting requires Him being in you and you surrendering to Him to trust Him. To labor is to think you have to believe this or that to bring it to pass, and yes, I refer to reading scripture. 

 

 

But His promise is something only He can bring about, for it is His presence in you as He gives Life to you. This is His relationship with you as He is Lord of you. He said, What He began by His Spirit in you, you do not finish in your flesh, for you haven't seen or perceived it.

 

 

I offer this one thought to you today, that you consider what you are believing. What God promised you is in Christ, for HE is God's will for you. So why do so many try to receive what they have imagined His promise of Life to be instead of receiving and trusting Him. He is far greater than anything we can imagine.

 

 

The Lord said today is a day when He will gather His Beloved to Him.

Trust and Surrender

By Kathy Mote

 

 

Trust and surrender are nearly the same thing. They are your heart's response to His presence. In fact, they are His presence in you enabling you to respond to Him. If you are not responding to Him, you are not walking with Him. Forgive my plain speaking.

Something

By Kathy Mote

 

 

Something about a surrendered heart is He is Lord in it. The same thing is true about a surrendered life. He is Lord of it. What you lay down at His feet you trust Him with completely. It is His to protect and to provide for now and you rely on Him. 

 

You don't die when you lay down the care of your life at His feet, you live your life in His presence, trusting Him. Surrender is a vital part of trust. You don't call Him Lord without it, or it is your faith in your own desires that you trust, and not His Lordship over you which is His desire for you.

There Is A Spirit In The World

By Kathy Mote

 

 

There is a spirit in the world who is so stuck on itself, so sure of its own thoughts and desires it demands everyone agree and conform to it. But it is critical, its logic is harsh, and in the end, its intent is to take life, all of it.

 

It poisons the human mind, for it is the greatest lie and is a hypocrite of the highest degree. It demands to be god in everyone's heart and condemns those who disagree and don't conform to it. It is becoming legion. 

 

I hear the Lord say, You may be in the world, but you are not of it. I am in you, and for this reason, you are above this society ruling, heart and identity destroying, domineering spirit. Distance yourself from the sound of it for the sake of your own choices. I have you well hidden.

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.
