EACH MAN MUST FACE HIS OWN BESOR

 

DREAM:  I dreamed I was supposed to play in the concert as 1st chair clarinet in the band, which was my position growing up in school bands.  I did not have my clarinet so Wayne took me back to the storage and we saw a backup lap top on the top shelf.  Wayne said that every week he opened it up and kept it charged for me in case I would need it.  He had been faithful to do that all those years and I never even knew it.  I knew we would have to go find my clarinet and the conductor would think very poorly of me and would mark me down for either being late for the concert or not showing up at all. 

 

HEARDWhere are you headed?  Each man must face his own Brook of Besor.  You faced yours.  Why is this important?  Not by might, not by power, but by My Spirit.  Thatís why. 

 

WORD TO PONDER:  FACING YOUR OWN BROOK OF BESOR  5/16/07

There are times in your life where you have labored, warred, and spent all you had to stay committed and faithful.  And when the demand for recovery became too great to bear, I sent you to your own brook of Besor.  My dearest child, I understand that this felt like the most painful defeat for you, to not be able to keep up with the demands and needs of the hour. 

 

Please know that I have not deemed you unfit, disqualified, or unfaithful. You have suffered remorse, shame and grief as you have waited upon Me in order to hear the cheerful news of the reward of recovering what was lost in your life.  I sent you to Besor to rest and take on a new position of keeping watch over the camp, tarrying by the stuff while the warriors went on to conquer and bring back the booty.  Dear one, your portion of reward and bounty will be exactly the same as those who went to battle. 

 

Perhaps you will find a deeper comfort in knowing why I allowed you to become so deeply spent.  It is because of My call upon your life.  What I AM building will not come through the might and power of manís talents, gifts or tenacity.  It will come only by My Spirit so that no man will glory in My Presence.  You have learned your lessons well and are prepared.

 

Zech 4:6-7 NKJV

"This is the word of the LORD to Zerubbabel: 'Not by might nor by power, but by My Spirit,' Says the LORD of hosts.  'Who are you, O great mountain? Before Zerubbabel you shall become a plain! And he shall bring forth the capstone with shouts of "Grace, grace to it!"'"

 

Sam 30:9-10 NKJV

So David went, he and the six hundred men who were with him, and came to the Brook Besor , where those stayed who were left behind. But David pursued, he and four hundred men; for two hundred stayed behind, who were so weary that they could not cross the Brook Besor.  {1308}

 

1 Sam 30:21-25 NKJV

Now David came to the two hundred men who had been so weary that they could not follow David, whom they also had made to stay at the Brook Besor . {1308} So they went out to meet David and to meet the people who were with him. And when David came near the people, he greeted them. Then all the wicked and worthless men of those who went with David answered and said, "Because they did not go with us, we will not give them any of the spoil that we have recovered, except for every man's wife and children, that they may lead them away and depart."   But David said, "My brethren, you shall not do so with what the LORD has given us, who has preserved us and delivered into our hand the troop that came against us. For who will heed you in this matter? But as his part is who goes down to the battle, so shall his part be who stays by the supplies; they shall share alike." So it was, from that day forward; he made it a statute and an ordinance for Israel to this day.

Two of the scriptures using that word are:

 

Isa 61:1-3 KJV

The Spirit of the Lord GOD is upon me; because the LORD hath anointed me to preach GOOD TIDINGS {1308}  unto the meek; he hath sent me to bind up the brokenhearted, to proclaim liberty to the captives, and the opening of the prison to them that are bound; 2 To proclaim the acceptable year of the LORD, and the day of vengeance of our God; to comfort all that mourn; 3 To appoint unto them that mourn in Zion, to give unto them beauty for ashes, the oil of joy for mourning, the garment of praise for the spirit of heaviness; that they might be called trees of righteousness, the planting of the LORD, that he might be glorified.

 

Nah 1:15 NKJV

Behold, on the mountains The feet of him who brings GOOD TIDINGS, {1308} who proclaims peace!
