rhema 7/04/10 TO
GIVE GOD PLEASURE
HEARD: Time to press in.
Clock Time: 5:55
INTERP: I opened my eyes
when hearing the Lord say this and my eyes landed on the
clock that said 5:55. I knew the Lord was saying that
He was giving us his triple grace to lean on Him, even
when we are too exhausted to press in through any other
EXPERIENCE: We are so very
precious to our loving Heavenly Father. He loves to
love us. He has pleasure just by watching. Today at
our family BBQ I got to hold our 3rd grandbaby who is 4
months old. I had joy every time I looked down upon her
cherub face, sound asleep in my arms.
CONFIRMATION: Tonight I was
discouraged because I was not hearing the Lord very much
and had been thinking maybe I should get up in the
middle of the night like I used to. I did this for so
many years and then when I fell sick, I needed the rest
but was unable to rest well due to taking steroids
which were like adrenalin to my body. I am now off of
them and exhausted and sleeping strongly and it is hard
to wake up at all. About 10 seconds after thinking
about this, I heard Stacey Campbell on God TV say that
God gave her a picture where she saw people sleeping.
She suddenly realized that even when we are doing
nothing, it gives God pleasure. She said she loved to
just open the door to her children's bedrooms and watch
art worthy, O Lord, to receive glory and honour and
power: for thou hast created all things, and for thy
pleasure they are and were created.
UPDATE 7/27/10: My
grandchildren are in Disneyland right now. All 3 kids
are 3 yrs and younger. Mom reported in that all 3 of
them were sound asleep at the same time. I said, "So
what does Mom and Dad do in the middle of Disneyland
when all 3 kids are sound asleep?" She reported back
that they went to dinner with one sleeping in the
stroller, one sleeping in their arms and she emailed me
the most precious photo. I saw that the third had his
bottom on the chair next to Dad and his head draped on
Dad's leg. I love grandkid photos, but that one is just
SO precious. It gives me so much pleasure just thinking
about that photo.
Now I understand that when I have
played really hard, God just loves to see me sleep.
