The Face in the Storm

The Lord is looking for those who are willing to follow Him wherever He leads ~ into the ‘thunder, lightning, and smoking mountain’. Will you be courageous to go where He is? You say you love Him, but do you trust Him, do you truly reverence Him? Will you approach Him? Safety according to our standards will often limit the depth of our encounter. Could it be that on the other side of your perceived storm, is the face of the Lord?

“Now all the people witnessed the thunder and the flashes of lightning and the sound of the trumpet and the smoking mountain; and as they looked, the people were afraid, and they trembled [and moved backward] and stood at a [safe] distance. Then they said to Moses, “You speak to us and we will listen, but do not let God speak to us or we will die.” Moses said to the people, “Do not be afraid; for God has come in order to test you, and in order that the fear of Him [that is, a profound reverence for Him] will remain with you, so that you do not sin.” So the people stood at a [safe] distance, but Moses approached the thick cloud where God was.” Exodus‬ ‭20‬:‭18‬-‭21‬ ‭AMP‬‬

Isaiah 40

“Why, O Jacob, do you say, and declare, O Israel, “My way is hidden from the Lord, And the justice due me escapes the notice of my God”? Do you not know? Have you not heard? The Everlasting God, the Lord, the Creator of the ends of the earth Does not become tired or grow weary; There is no searching of His understanding. He gives strength to the weary, And to him who has no might He increases power. Even youths grow weary and tired, And vigorous young men stumble badly, But those who wait for the Lord [who expect, look for, and hope in Him] Will gain new strength and renew their power; They will lift up their wings [and rise up close to God] like eagles [rising toward the sun]; They will run and not become weary, They will walk and not grow tired.” ‭‭Isaiah‬ ‭40:27-31‬ ‭AMP‬‬

FINDING THE TRUSTWORTHY

The “Judas spirit” will often show up right before your biggest breakthrough, destiny shifts, or other monumental moments in your life. It happened to Jesus too… Overcoming it looks much like Him as well; walk in love and humility, bless those who persecute you, turn the other cheek, focus on your mission, trust the Father, and die to self unto living a transformed life in resurrection power.

Through this adversity hearts and motives are exposed. Though there are varying levels of betrayal, this is important because the Lord will use it to reveal those who can not be in close communion (if any) with you any longer. Because they did not honor you, protect you, or believe in your calling, and they did not discern and respect the authority given to you they will not receive the inheritance of the Lord’s fruitful treasure in you. This will effect both the spiritual and natural realms. Covenant breaking is painful, and as cliche as it sounds, it truly is better now than later. It is a blessing to know who is among you and trustworthy – lest they spoil the entire treasury, the most important of which is in your heart.

Jesus, the One who already overcame is your defender, acquainted with this sorrow He cares for you, lay the burden of it upon Him. He understands broken communion, He was broken for you.

“How blessed you are when people insult and persecute you and speak all kinds of cruel lies about you because of your love for me!” Matthew 5:11 TPT

“So here’s what I’ve learned through it all: Leave all your cares and anxieties at the feet of the Lord, and measureless grace will strengthen you. He will watch over his devoted lovers, never letting them slip or be overthrown. He will send all my enemies to the pit of destruction. Murderers, liars, and betrayers will face an untimely death. My life’s hope and trust is in you, and you’ll never fail to rescue me!” Psalms 55:22-23 TPT

PLEASING TO HIM

When our sole purpose and ambition is to please the Lord; our Savior, our King, our Master, our Friend, our Bridegroom; the integrity of one’s heart is governed by the pure driven intention to know Him. The more purely we are attached to this desire, the more our actions, purposes, goals, and motives will be rightly aligned. As humans in our fallen world we can be easily deceived into thinking we are virtuous through outward gifting, speech, knowledge, works and the like all ‘within the name of the Lord’ though few are honest with themselves to discern what is in their own heart. This is the difference of choosing to grow in maturity or not. Many are called, few are chosen. I want to be a chosen one! The narrow road requires great agility and focus, we must train and yield now, so when the time comes we are able follow where He leads no matter how slim the passage. The pathway to Zion is different for each of us, though none of us will reach the glory of her heights if our focus isn’t upon Him. This is a time He is weighing more heavily what is in our hearts by looking closely at our thoughts and motives. If we want increase, we must empty ourselves.

“Therefore, whether we are at home [on earth away from Him] or away from home [and with Him], we are constantly ambitious and strive earnestly to be pleasing to Him. For we must all appear and be revealed as we are before the judgment seat of Christ, so that each one may receive [his pay] according to what he has done in the body, whether good or evil [considering what his purpose and motive have been, and what he has achieved, been busy with, and given himself and his attention to accomplishing]. Therefore, being conscious of fearing the Lord with respect and reverence, we seek to win people over [to persuade them]. But what sort of persons we are is plainly recognized and thoroughly understood by God, and I hope that it is plainly recognized and thoroughly understood also by your consciences (your inborn discernment). We are not commending ourselves to you again, but we are providing you with an occasion and incentive to be [rightfully] proud of us, so that you may have a reply for those who pride themselves on surface appearances [on the virtues they only appear to have], although their heart is devoid of them.”
‭‭2 Corinthians‬ ‭5:9-12‬ ‭AMPC‬‬

FINISH LINE

“You led Your people like a flock By the hand of Moses and Aaron [to the promised goal].”
‭‭Psalms‬ ‭77:20‬ ‭AMP‬‬

I heard in the Spirit recently “finish line”. Many are right there at the finish line, so very near to the promised goal. Stay the course, cross the waters, don’t mind the storm because the Lord is in it. The miracle is already transpiring, just look at Him and trust in His salvation, for the Lord alone holds the power to save!

Jesus Our Treasure

This is time where it is imperative we have the Word of God deeply rooted in our hearts. The Word of God is alive in you. It is like currency, wisdom, power, provision, peace, healing, manna all within ~ it is Jesus in you the very Word that became flesh and dwelt among men. At times this supernatural reality can be beyond comprehension, open the eyes of your heart like a child and receive. Feast on His presence and consume His Word and then your heart will become full; He is the fulfillment to our desires and this we will never outgrow. Thank you Jesus You are our treasure and great reward, may we remain faithful to You!

“But store up for yourselves treasures in heaven, where neither moth nor rust destroys, and where thieves do not break in and steal; for where your treasure is, there your heart [your wishes, your desires; that on which your life centers] will be also.”
‭‭Matthew‬ ‭6:20-21‬ ‭AMP‬‬

“Your word I have treasured and stored in my heart, That I may not sin against You.”
‭‭Psalms‬ ‭119:11‬ ‭AMP‬‬

Knowing The Lord Through Experience (and re-release of word for head of the year)

I feel to re-release the word for the head of the year 2022, as we are more than half way through the year on the Gregorian calendar and coming into the Jewish new year. In this word regarding returning to first love, I shared what the Lord had spoken to me “knowledge without experience is void of intimacy”. I want to encourage those still in deep refining and or waiting to not allow your circumstances dictate your level of experiencing the Lord – He after all was the fourth man in the fire. Also it is good to gage where we are and measure progress – have we yielded, have we allowed Him to finish the work He has begun in us? As stated in this word, creative miracles with a supernatural release of fire and glory are on the other side the healing and trial, personal healing is leading to marriage and family revival as we return to first love.

I pray this blesses and encourages you today!

REMAIN IN THE SEAL

Within the circle of covenant, all of our needs are met in Christ. We are protected, provided for, loved, healed, and sealed. Within this circle is your security and a life of righteousness.

First we TRUST, then we remain in trust by DWELLING in His presence, we DELIGHT in Him, and remain COMMITTED here. This is the life of godliness sealed in covenant.

“Trust [rely on and have confidence] in the Lord and do good; Dwell in the land and feed [securely] on His faithfulness. Delight yourself in the Lord, And He will give you the desires and petitions of your heart. Commit your way to the Lord; Trust in Him also and He will do it.”
‭‭Psalms‬ ‭37:3-5‬ ‭AMP‬‬
