Heart thoughts……..

Wide open vistas…Stretchings into higher vision. More of a God view

Views and Vistas ….

1. A distant view or prospect, especially one seen through an opening, as between rows of buildings or trees.

2. An avenue or other passage affording such a view.

3. An awareness of a range of time, events, or subjects; a broad mental view.

I’ve been talking a lot with Jesus about my views and mindsets in order to better understand some glory revealings. Glory revealings are things you hear from the spirit in the secret place of prayer. A word that comes to open up mindsets and to change hearts and lives.

Over time I’ve come to realize that a good sign of a maturing saint is a ever increasing and more and more drastic change in perspective. Saints are seriously set on walking out of the old and going forward into the new. We are becoming aware progressively of the importance of times and seasons because it’s what Jesus instructed us to do. He said if a man is wise he will seek to discern times and seasons of the spirit, just as men watch for signs of what’s coming in weather patterns. The winds blow in change in the natural world, and Holy Spirit winds blow in changes in the spirit from the heavenlies. We learn to recognize and flow with the wind of the Spirit.

Jesus taught us that the fields are ripe for harvest and he needs laborers to help him to seek and save souls.  All along our way we are in need of new vision and new perspectives that can open doors that have been locked previously. We plow through hard ground to break through. There’s a journey of rising up into new measures of the supply of the Spirit so we can unlock new levels of love and understanding. Places of accessing grace for upgrade and new opportunities. Our world changes. We see the world around us more like he sees.

As we begin to know in our knower we learn better how to watch and pray, and love and soundness of character grows abundantly.  May it always increase more and more so that when he comes on a watch, looking for faith, he will find in us a faith that pleases him. More and more I’m coming to an understanding that Jesus is passionate to execute the redemptive powers of his cross. I’m encouraged because scripture says that Jesus will not fail nor be discouraged until he has established his kingdom and made the law of his Father honorable.

The winds of the Holy Spirit are blowing and many are taking up their crosses daily as the self agenda tries to rule. We are practicing our dying to self and being resurrected into new life.  We are seated together with him and all of the saints in heavenly places. Jesus is Lord and He is building his church in the land and it will be spotless and without blemish. Mere men become meek before God, compelled by love and anointed with power of the Holy Spirit to break yokes of darkness off and lift heavy burdens from the weary shoulders of people who are captive to dark powers.

There will be showers of blessings poured out through the truths of the latter rain promises. I’m excited and I realize that I’ve only begun to scratch the surface of the greatness of it all. The comfort of his presence keeps us as we hold fast to the blood promises and seek to grow in godliness. Father God is writing his laws and instructions on the hearts and minds of his elect.   He dresses us up in our armor of light to lead the way for seekers.

“For Christ’s love compels us, because we are convinced that one died for all.”

Hebrews 13: 20

Now the God of peace, that brought again from the dead our Lord Jesus, that great shepherd of the sheep, through the blood of the everlasting covenant, 21 Make you perfect in every good work to do his will, working in you that which is wellpleasing in his sight, through Jesus Christ; to whom be glory for ever and ever. Amen.

John 17:15

I pray not that thou would take them out of the world, but that thou would keep them from the evil.

Thank you for lifting us up on the wings of your love, Father…

God Says “Listen”

Only me

Focus and refocus.

After reading closer and paying attention to our instruction to feast on our “Daily Bread” I have some thoughts to share. Hopefully a comfort and maybe a clue for a seeker to think on.

God has been talking to me about children growing up. About listening for his specifics. Not just generalities. God is huge, there’s lots we can say, but time comes to tune into what he says to me. Not attention to what others were saying or doing but my own path. He said “I am a God of specifics” He leads us in way that are specific for our individual present moment. It’s about centering in on the instruction needed for our own unique walk.

The things that I’m growing through have been about new season time and new season ways in his liberty. Moving in new and more confidant ways, more closely aligned with his time. Deep stretchings. Transistionings.

As he began preparing me, He called for “Selah” pauses. To slow down and flow closer and deeper. He said. “Listen deeper.” I had to seek stillness, refocus my ears to hear him and his present moment leadings. These were instructions in the wise way to deal with the matters at hand in my own walk. God impressed some things on my heart deeply.

We are each so unique, and each of us has specific things we need to center in on in any given season, in order to flow and grow. Each has specific things we need to receive and release. When we set our full attention on private times with him alone, hearing new things and learning and growing everything changes. This change is the result of doing the necessary acts of my will to grow in deeper ways. Reminder of the charge to the saints to “Go on to maturity” from the book of Hebrews.

We can rest in his love. Our Shepherd tells us “Don’t forget what I’ve said in the light when you have to go through dark difficulties”

I was instructed to shift my attentions.

For the new era we need a new and closer yielding to his purposes. Getting our priorities more inline with where we belong in him. Feasting on the daily bread he sends for our specific needs; to do only what he has anointed us to do. To decrease so that he could increase in us. My uniqueness, and yours, requires different words and processes at different times.

Deep change has come as a result of refocusing with him. It has made an immense difference. I have peace and love like never before. The light is getting brighter. The way on the path is easier to follow. Now I am growing into new graces. I am delighting myself in his delights in me. His love is a mighty fortress.

He is the God who keeps on making all things new. I hope my story will be an encourager for you.

Seekers Of Serenity

serenity-

The Serenity Prayer is one I had read and known of all of my life, but had not really understood the concept and the depth of it. In my early years I had no spiritual understanding, but as I’ve matured in the Lord I’ve learned. This process of learning  has caused me to see it in a new light.  I’ve found this prayer to be a strong life changer.  However, only our sincere desire for deep change will make it effective. The poeple of God are shifting into new times and need right alignment with kingdom truths.

In a time of paradigm shifting into higher responsibility hearts and circumstances need  changing in deep and dramatic ways.  We are naturally born human beings who are influenced and even ruled by fear.   We have to overcome this and learn how to be ruled by the peace of the Spirit.  I’ve seen and now I’m sharing with you how  powerful prayer will get us into a spiritual position that will help us to apprehend changes.I was one who  had to come up through some very dark valleys. By the mercies and the strength of the call of God I found a new strength to be victorious.  I learned as I listened to the words of the Holy Spirit working in and for me.  Over time I was taught by the Lord how to live a lifestyle of prayer.

In depth, the Serenity Prayer is a prayer of humility. God responds to respect and contrition. If we have our trust set in getting acquainted with our God he is able to make our heart willing  to submit to doing whatever is required to grow into a new grace.  It’s a confession that we don’t know, but we trust him. It’s honest in confessing we have fear but we ask for courage by wisdom and grace to deal with what must be dealt with. Not our way or the ways of any man, but His way, with a more abounding love and peace concerning all we deal with. And in the true and reverent fear of the Lord we will experience the ever increasing joy of the Lord!

This prayer lifestyle is able to deliver us from leaning on our own understandings and equip us to perceive things through His understandings and to execute His will for the time and season.. .

Jesus said “Let him who ears to hear, listen.”
