1/15/12 BE CONTENT, move with rest
I have been in a season of rest for a few months.
Sometimes we press in for so long that we just need to
rest. Last night I downloaded some new word games to
play on my iTouch. My eyes were so tired and I was too
weary by the time it was to pray together. While Wayne
was praying I had my eyes closed and saw the following.
PIX: I saw __ __ __ ED.
HEARD: Just rest sweet one.
PIX: I saw the word, content.
Phil 4:11-13 NKJV
I have learned in whatever state I am, to be
12 I know how to be abased, and I know how to abound.
Everywhere and in all things I have learned both to be
full and to be hungry, both to abound and to suffer
need. 13 I can do all things through Christ who
HEARD: We’ve been sent to help you.
VISION: I saw an angel go to a shelf and
bring a package to me. She gave me a lovely smile.
AH: I turned with anointed hands to the
following Word to Ponder. I feel that the package the
Lord has sent me is the ability to remain at my post and
still give, but do so under His canopy of rest. This
month He has begun to move His people again to advance.
And I am willing and He is giving me grace to move
again, but this time in His rest.
A CANOPY OF MY REST 8/12/07
I AM sending you dear ones.
Go forth and walk in peace, walk in My rest. Having
lain down your strivings, know that I AM with you, and
will amply give you gifts for every occasion that you
meet. Like a flowing river, it shall never run dry. My
seeds are within you. Even as I created every living
thing to bear fruit after its own kind, walk out your
life in a natural way of bearing fruit in each season.
Walk through doors that you have desires to walk
through, for I have grafted My desires into your own and
we will go forth as One.
Listen for My Words for each
occasion and believe. You know My Sovereignty, My
encircling of your life, My divine canopy. You know
Your loving Father and Creator and you believe My
Words. Take rest and refuge under My wings for you are
covered beloved and faithful family.
Heb 4:13 NKJV
Therefore, since a promise
remains of entering His rest , let us fear lest any of
you seem to have come short of it. 2 For indeed the
gospel was preached to us as well as to them; but the
word which they heard did not profit them, not being
mixed with faith in those who heard it. 3 For we who
have believed do enter that rest , as He has said "So I
swore in My wrath, 'They shall not enter My rest ,'"
although the works were finished from the foundation of
the world. 4 For He has spoken in a certain place of the
seventh day in this way"And God rested on the seventh
day from all His works"; 5 and again in this place"They
shall not enter My rest ." 6 Since therefore it remains
that some must enter it, and those to whom it was first
preached did not enter because of disobedience, 7 again
He designates a certain day, saying in David, "Today,"
after such a long time, as it has been said "Today, if
you will hear His voice,Do not harden your hearts." 8
For if Joshua had given them rest , then He would not
afterward have spoken of another day. 9 There remains
therefore a rest for the people of God. 10 For he who
has entered His rest has himself also ceased from his
works as God did from His. Let us therefore be diligent
to enter that rest , lest anyone fall according to the
same example of disobedience. 12 For the word of God is
living and powerful, and sharper than any two-edged
sword, piercing even to the division of soul and spirit,
and of joints and marrow, and is a discerner of the
thoughts and intents of the heart. 13 And there is no
creature hidden from His sight, but all things are naked
and open to the eyes of Him to whom we must give
DOG PARABLE: I have been watching an educational
show called the Dog Whisperer. One night there was a
pit bull that was literally dragging the person out the
gate in order to go on the walk. There was no way the
dog would listen to become rehabilitated from his
behavior problems because he had so much energy. So
Cesar recommended taking him for walks with roller
blades. He demonstrated the dog pulling Cesar along
behind him. The dog became tired after 3 trips, so
Cesar took off his blades and THEN walked the dog. The
dog suddenly didnt care at all about all the things that
usually caused him to misbehave. He was willing and
attentive to follow Cesar’s commands, simply because he
had worn himself out.
Ps 46:10 AMP
Let be and be still, and know (recognize and
understand) that I am God.
QUICKENED THOUGHT: Cease striving and know that
I am God.
