DIVINE EXCHANGE BETWEEN PRUDENCE AND PASSION
TOUCHED BY THE YEARNINGS OF HIS SPIRIT 5/01/07
Today I have read portions of Fuchsia Pickett’s book
that someone sent me. I wept when I read of her vision
of the end time power plant loosing generations of water
held back in the dam, in order to bring the glory of God
to earth, to bring in its harvest of souls, healings of
body soul and spirit, and so that the whole earth will
be filled with His glory and know Him. I have never
heard of this wonderful lady and she was repeating
portions of the same dam and power plant that I have
seen, with the same passion for His glory to come and
bring in His harvest. I wept from deep within me,
wanting to be set free from all earthly restraints and
be sent to be a part of this mighty call of His Spirit.
The Holy Spirit was calling me, wooing me, yearning for
me and I felt it deeply.
I thought of our lives and the weightiness of taking
care of ourselves, our families, our homes, and all the
things that go with living daily life. My life has
become very simple the last few years, extremely
simple. And yet I still felt “grounded” when everything
in me wanting to fly. It reminded me of the allegory of
the kite. A kite is able to fly higher, only if someone
is on the ground holding onto the string, feeding it
more and more string to reach further and further.
Without being grounded, the kite is unable to catch the
wind and soar. It is the divine wrestling match between
the wind, the kite and the grounded one holding onto the
There is a divine tension playing out between what is
practical and what it passionate. As deeply as we
yearn, we need the practical. And as much as we need
the practical, we need the passionate. I am reminded
of the rhema I received last month where He said He was
marrying the practical with the spiritual.

And ENJOY it.
To continue the allegory, our flesh is grounded in
obedience to God’s Word, holding onto the strings of our
faith in Him. Our faith extends with increasing rope to
release our spirit man to soar higher and higher towards
1. I believe that the Lord is exchanging parts and
pieces of us, as He moves us towards increasing
passion. Some times when someone sells out to passion,
they forget what is prudent, so in this gradual
exchange, He is enabling our flesh to remain accountable
as it releases the strings of faith to move our spirit
man forward, higher and freer to move towards heaven’s
passion of bringing His kingdom on earth.
2. Another wonderful aspect of Him marrying His blend
between the practical and spiritual, is that we are
going to see and hear His Word more and more in our
daily lives, as He quickens what He is saying through
very clear relevance in a practical way.
3. A third aspect of this allegory is that the wisdom
of the older generation is a grounded safety measure to
release the youth to soar higher and higher as they move
with the passion of their destinies. The key is to not
quench the passion of youth, but to gently encourage it
with grounded wisdom along the way.
Col 1:22-23 NKJV
...to present you holy, and blameless, and above
reproach in His sight — if indeed you continue in the
faith, grounded and steadfast, and are not moved away
from the hope of the gospel which you heard...
Ezek 11:18-20 NKJV
Then I will give them one heart, and I will put a new
spirit within them, and take the stony heart out of
their flesh, and give them a heart of flesh, that they
may walk in My statutes and keep My judgments and do
them; and they shall be My people, and I will be their
Eph 3:17-19 NKJV
...that Christ may dwell in your hearts through
faith; that you, being rooted and grounded in love, may
be able to comprehend with all the saints what is the
