GET PAST THE KNEE JERKS
Root of bitterness.
Those are punch buttons. Miserable. Your
bruises. Knee Jerk.
I experienced a strong flash of fiery
light clashing between light and darkness. It was
fierce in warfare and I had the fear of the Lord over
the matter. Even though it was in the distance, I felt
it and it shook me.
Hebrews 12:27-29 And this word, Yet once more,
signifies the removing of those things that are shaken,
as of things that are made, that those things which
cannot be shaken may remain. 28 Therefore we receiving a
kingdom which cannot be moved, let us have grace, by
which we may serve God acceptably with reverence and
godly fear: 29 For our God is a consuming fire.
Strong message. Bitter fruit. A pile
up. There is more to this. Itís deep, I can see this.
The way out. Humility. The way to
relate. My friend. Honor. This also tells me you have
to use wisdom. There has got to be a way. Keep
WORD TO PONDER: ABUSED SOULS 1/18/07
In the natural maturation process, it takes time to
unwind the issues of an abused soul and see how it bends
towards certain behavioral patterns. One can respond
perfectly normally, until a situation gets too close to
an old wound, and then old dysfunctional patterns
emerge. Within every person there is a child part that
has never grown beyond repeated old wounds. Lives
continue, life matures and grows around those places.
But in areas too close, the child remains.
The old gnarled places are like knots in a tree, with
circular patterns extending from the injury. The closer
one gets to those places, the more contorted they are.
That describes the human way that puts up safety
measures and barriers so as not to get too close to that
old pain. I understand your pain, dear one, and how you
got there. I understand each and every issue much
deeper than you remember.
It is important to Me that you do not define yourself by
these incidents. A knot in a tree does not define the
tree as dysfunctional. It is still a tree and few when
looking at a tree even notice knots. A knot in a tree
really says that the tree has overcome something and yet
thrives in spite of it. It is a hero badge. Those
wounded places will become your greatest assets as you
are empowered by My Spirit to heal others of the same
issues. Remember that I AM calling you beyond your
wounded child, into full maturity in every area of your
life. As you circle an old dysfunctional place knowing
that your behavior is not lining up with My will for
you, offer up to Me the need for healing. Confess your
falling short. Ask Me for wisdom to help you understand
how you got there, and then FORGIVE and release the
bitter memories that tells you that today is the same as
Ps 147:2-6 NKJV
The LORD builds up Jerusalem; He gathers together the
outcasts of Israel. He heals the brokenhearted and
binds up their wounds. He counts the number of the
stars; He calls them all by name. Great is our Lord,
and mighty in power; His understanding is infinite. The
LORD lifts up the humble; He casts the wicked down to
I saw a large title written in BOLD BLACK
CAPS and flies were swarming all over it. Beelzebub
means the lord over the flies.
Beelzebub means the lord over the flies.
John 8:44 You are of your father the devil, and the
lusts of your father you will do. He was a murderer from
the beginning, and abode not in the truth, because there
is no truth in him. When he speaks a lie, he speaks of
his own: for he is a liar, and the father of it.
Remembrance. These are lies.
I would have chosen wrongly again? This
tells me how important the truth is. What is a
stronghold? It starts with a wound.
The need to understand. To separate the
truth from the lies. Begin to heal. Deep wound,
uncertain. This affects oneís faith, doesnít understand
this. Pickle. Its relevant. The older I get, the
more I get hardened in my mindset. Stronghold, itís a
matter of opinion. Itís is not of faith.
I saw a flash of light.
2 Corinthians 10:3-5 For though we walk in the flesh,
we do not war according to the flesh: 4 (For the weapons
of our warfare are not carnal, but mighty through God to
the pulling down of strongholds;) 5 Casting down
arguments, and every high thing that exalts itself
against the knowledge of God, and bringing into
captivity every thought to the obedience of Christ;
Dominions in the mind, a way of thinking.
Pulverize. So we march into our order and fit into
place. A ways to go yet, hang in there.
We need to know truth in order to make a

your paths. 5 Lead me in your truth, and teach me: for

Fly paper, where is the truth? Love
1 Corinthians 13:4-8 Love suffers long, and is kind;
love envies not; love vaunts not itself, is not puffed
up, 5 Does not behave itself rudely, seeks not her own,
is not easily provoked, keeps no record of evil; 6
Rejoices not in iniquity, but rejoices in the truth; 7
Bears all things, believes all things, hopes all things,
endures all things. 8 Love never failsÖ
Yes sir, I repeat this. Root. What I am
about to do. Dirty snow. A well-worn path. Ice.
Silver thaw. Melt down.
There is a lesson learned here. Humility,
lessons learned. Whom the son sets free, he shall be
WORD TO PONDER: GET PAST THE KNEE JERKS 2/07/14
I am arranging circumstances to draw deeply embedded and
bitter wounds to the surface. PRAY. Beloveds, you need
to heal and get past the knee jerk reflexes that cause
you to wrongly respond to others. I want the wounds in
your soul cleansed and the bitterness extracted. You
are listening to lies that are simply not true. These
wounds have caused your perceptions to askew what you
think about people, about yourself and about Me. Humble
yourselves before Me and others. Repent for kicking.
Take authority over the strongholds in your life and
demolish them. Let no mind that is set on opinions
remain in your life. Stop arguing and bring them down
to the full obedience of Christ Jesus.
John 8:32 And you shall know the truth, and the truth
shall make you free.
John 14:17 Even the Spirit of truth; whom the world
cannot receive, because it sees him not, neither knows
him: but you know him; for he dwells with you, and shall
be in you.
PRAYER: Lord we rebuke and pull down every
stronghold in our mind that is rising up in rebellion
against Your truth. Let there be no lie that remains in
our thinking. Demolish and pulverize them Lord!!
Father we offer our wounded souls up to you and ask that
You will properly cleanse them and begin to pull up and
out the bitter roots that were wrongly fed through
negative thoughts, emotions and un-forgiveness. Release
us Lord and let Your truth set us free and replace all
strongholds with right thinking and obedience to Jesus
