Wiser To Listen

listen

 

May the Lord help us to not speak when it would be wiser to
just listen in particular settings; and may we trust the Lord
to handle the outcome of what we felt was so important to
say in those settings.

“And that ye study to be quiet, and to do your own business,
and to work with your own hands, as we commanded you;”
(1Thess.4:11, KJV)

Provision Before Problem

provision

 

 

Though I didn’t realize it, that worshipful, prophetic declaration that day at the piano was also a cry from my heart for a moment of comfort and quietness that would shut out all the noise of need and concern and “what-ifs.”  The awesome Spirit of my God did not miss nor ignore that heart-cry.  If desperation had my ship listing, His four-word echo set me aright.  If anxiety was smothering, His words brought me a deep breath.  If time was threatening, His words turned the clock back.  If I feared I was at an unchangeable end, hope took me back to a new beginning.   He was reminding me that before circumstances piled up, before dysfunction developed, before trouble troubled, He had seen it coming, and He had the table set for me before my enemies even got there.  When I said, “You are the Lord of this moment” and He echoed, “And the moment before,” it was a powerful reminder that His provision is there before the problem.

A Lively Stone

stone wall


As the people of God assemble today, may each person realize the importance of, and see the value of their place as, a lively stone in the household of God. May they fit appropriately into the wall where the Lord God has set them and augment the local work and the other lively stones they have been set with.

“Present yourselves as building stones for the construction of a sanctuary vibrant with life, in which you’ll serve as holy priests offering Christ-approved lives up to God.” (1Pe.2:5, Msg)

 


A Sudden Good Break

May the Lord grant you a sudden good break
that brings you much needed relief.

Proverbs 13:12 (MSG) ” Unrelenting
disappointment leaves you heartsick, but a
sudden good break can turn life around.”

 


And The Moment Before

Piano window

 

I sat alone downstairs at the piano, not really playing any particular song but simply flowing in sounds that came with His presence.  I did not intend to sing but these words slipped out of my heart, “You are the Lord of this moment.”  As soon as my words met the air, like an echo response I heard, “AND THE MOMENT BEFORE.”  I could not have explained the sudden weeping had anyone overheard it, for it was a gusher from my heart outside my logic or understanding.  Then when my understanding did open, the weeping would not stop. It was a powerful reminder that His provision is there before the problem.

Wisdom, Purity, Power

heart mindMay the Lord grant us wisdom in our minds,
purity in our hearts and power in our hands
to be and do all that He has mandated us to
do in a lifetime. 

“My goal in giving you this order is for love
to flow from a pure heart, from a clear
conscience, and from a sincere faith.”
(1Tim.1:5, GW)

Creation Is Still Waiting

world

 

Creation is still waiting for the sons of God to get connected to that Higher Source. Creation has witnessed what man and his philosophical mindsets produce and creation is still groaning for the revealing of the sons of God who produce what the Vine energizes. Never mind, operator, the connection is still good.
