I Would Like To Share Something

By Kathy Mote

 

 

I would like to share something the Lord showed me. Please, no pointing and laughing. I asked the Lord what my spirit man looked like. His answer was, Like an infant. 

 

 

As I brooded over what He said to me, He asked me, Does that bother you? Yes. It really did. He asked me why it bothered me, and to be honest, I was even more dismayed by my answer. Because I want to be big. 

 

 

There it is again, pride. I'm beginning to think that is what I am made of until He is finished with me. Will I ever be free of it? It is the sum of all my weakness. It mocks me if I deny it. It is why I struggle, for it is how I am ensnared. Each time He looks into my heart, that is what He finds to correct me. 

 

 

He spoke to me this morning about it, this time to answer a question I didn't have the courage to ask Him. He told me what makes me an infant is all the things I desire are relevant to my own comfort. 

 

 

It is in the moments He corrects our heart that we have a choice to make. We can feel bad about the shape we are in before He corrects us or we can be grateful that He corrects us. I am sharing to encourage those who are considering their own choices.

In A Visioon

By Kathy Mote

 

 

In a vision, the Lord revealed how the heart of man thinks and where the heart of man is. I was shown man with a huge garnet in place of his seeing eye. 

 

Like a jeweler's lense, he saw everything through it. He looked at all things with the intent to find only what would add to him. He desired all things to be for him. It colored everything he saw and led him to open every door to find something of value to him. 

 

At the end of his life, when the man sat down to examine his portion, there was nothing to sustain him, for in all of his searching, nothing had filled him. He had not found what the Lord had set aside for him. 

As I saw these things, I couldn't help but see my own heart being compared to them.

 

 Even though I desire the Lord, and crave to hear all He would say to me, just like the man with the garnet eye, what my own heart knows to desire is not my Father's full desire for me. 

 

This was His recent response to all of my seeking, to empty my heart of what I know to desire and ask me to surrender everything to Him in order to know His desire for me. That is what I will walk in. This revelation was astounding, and it humbled me. 

 

It was in the deepest surrender my heart has ever known that I learned it is His desire to fill us with Himself, for that is our portion. He will create His heart in us so that we might be as He is. Filling us is how He will embrace us and gather us to Him.

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.
