11/13/15 FAITH AND THE
Today I received this Word to Ponder with anointed hands and
sent it out.
DONíT BACK UP 1/17/98
When I send you, I have a job for you to do. When you accept
these assignments, things that you need are set in motion to
bring you the Words and the tools. However, this is much
greater than you. The lives that you touch must also be
prepared, for I puzzle all things together. I send forth My
angels to weave together the preparations for these special
times of ministry.
Understand that if you waver in your faith and back up, this
brings everything to a halt, Ė not just in the natural but
also in the supernatural. Therefore, remember, that when I
send you, there is much riding along on your commitments. Do
not waver in your faith and hold back in the Spirit. Rather,
go forth with boldness, knowing that whom I send I also back
with signs following.
ďAnd they went forth, and preached everywhere, the Lord
working with them, and confirming the word with signs
following. Amen.Ē (Mark 16:20 KJV)
Then I went back to bed after sending the above Word to
HEARD AND SAW:
Bold faith. Yes go forth. I saw a
wheelbarrow that was carrying someone, although I didnít see
who it was carrying. Faith is like a wheel barrow. Your
life is in My hands. In My care. I am not going to dump
11/14/03 QUOTE BOB
JONES: THE WHEELBARROW
This thing that is higher than faith is called trust. When
you really begin to trust the Lord with your life. Faith
has been working in there where you can totally trust Him in
any situation. I have used this illustration many times.
Faith is believing the Lord Jesus Christ can push a
wheelbarrow on a tightrope across Niagara Falls. I believe
He can do it, Heís God. Trust is getting into the
wheelbarrow. And even when you believe He can do it, you
still have a hold of the handles.
Another thing we need to do when we have to trust, is called
rest. When we can sit down in that wheelbarrow and enjoy
the trip, no matter how scary it is. When you really begin
to trust the Lord and faith has begun to work in there,
youíll come to a place where you can totally trust Him.
Youíll eventually be going from faith to trust to rest.
This is Godís will for your life. That He have a people
that will come into that place of trust and rest in Him
where He can trust and rest in them.
Hebrews 11:1 (AMP) 1 NOW FAITH is the
assurance (the confirmation, the title deed) of the things
[we] hope for, being the proof of things [we] do not see and
the conviction of their reality [faith perceiving as real
fact what is not revealed to the senses].

FAITH IN RIGHTEOUSNESS
I have been pondering about having faith in our own
righteousness, which is walking in right choices and feeling
like one is in right standing with God. The problem is that
when you have more faith in your own right doing, than the
Lordís righteousness on your behalf, it is like being in
right standing thus you feel safe in the wheel barrow, but
if you mess up, then He will dump you out. The truth is
that right standing relates more to favor and relationship
and leaning on Him.
HEARD: That is My Word sweet one. Condemnation
is not of Me. You have been bought. I paid for you, all of
you. This is redemption.
Romans 3:24-26 (AMP) 24 [All]
are justified and made
upright and in right standing with God, freely and
gratuitously by His grace (His unmerited favor and
mercy), through the redemption which is [provided] in Christ
Jesus, 25 Whom God put forward [before the eyes
of all] as a mercy seat and propitiation by His blood [the
cleansing and life-giving sacrifice of atonement and
reconciliation, to be
received] through faith. This was
to show Godís righteousness,
because in His divine forbearance He had passed over and
ignored former sins without punishment. 26 It was
to demonstrate and prove at the present time (in the now
season) that He Himself is
righteous and that He justifies and accepts as righteous him
who has [true] faith in Jesus.

WORD TO PONDER: REST IN MY WHEELBARROW 11/13/15
Dear heart, I know you have suffered rejection, betrayal and
even self-rejection. Please know that I never condemn you
for your mistakes. I only want you to make different
choices and grow up into My loving image. When you placed
your life into My care, I have promised to carry you even
through your old age. I will never, never leave you. I
will never, never abandon you.
Faith is like being carried in My wheelbarrow. I AM the One
Who moves you, I AM the One Who lifts your burdens and
carries you to where you belong. I want to teach you to
rest in My ability to take care of you and handle your
load. I promise I will not drop you. Your journey in Me is
not about who you are, it is about Who I AM within your
life. Rest dear one and let Me love you.
Isaiah 46:3-4 Hearken unto me, O house of Jacob, and all
the remnant of the house of Israel, who are borne by me from
birth, who are carried from the womb: 4 And even to your old
age I am he; and even to gray hairs will I carry you: I have
made, and I will bear; even I will carry, and will deliver
Isaiah 53:4 Surely he has borne our griefs, and carried
our sorrows: yet we did esteem him stricken, smitten by God,
