RHEMA 10/01/09 HALTING
BETWEEN 2 OPINIONS
HEARD: Let us
begin. Test Me.
I used to love swinging as a child. I was in bed and
had a day dream where I was swinging on a rope between 2
trees. I imagined Jesus pushing my swing. Then I
decided I was tired and wanted to stop swinging.
You landed on your feet. My daughter.
had the impression of jumping off the swing in the
middle of a push.
I laughed out loud that
suddenly He really was there in the midst of my day
dream of swinging!. Then suddenly I GOT it. He had
inspired the day dream about the swinging in the first
swing is wavering between 2 opinions. Yes, no. Up,
down. This is God, not its not. I suddenly realize
this is the Word of the Lord to me, that is where I am
right now. I have been wavering for years about
discernment issues. I need to bail out of the
vacillation and decide and land solid in faith.
[Lord will You help me
Vote. If your eye is single,
then your whole body is full of light.
Matt 6:22-24 KJV
The light of the body is
the eye: if therefore thine eye be single, thy whole
body shall be full of light. 23 But if thine eye be
evil, thy whole body shall be full of darkness. If
therefore the light that is in thee be darkness, how
great is that darkness! 24 No man can serve two
masters: for either he will hate the one, and love the
other; or else he will hold to the one, and despise the
other. Ye cannot serve God and mammon.
NT:573 haplous (hap-looce');
probably from NT:1 (as a particle of union) and the base
of NT:4120; properly, folded together, i.e. single
KJV - single.
NT:4120 pleko (plek'-o); a
primary word; to twine or braid:
KJV - plait.

WORD TO PONDER: ASKING IN
If you are in the process of
making a decision, and are seeking My guidance, know
that I will not answer without your participating
faith. Faith is an unseen element dispatching forces to
set things in motion. Faith prepares you and prepares
the heavenlies to respond to your need.
There is negative faith as
well as positive faith. Understand, that fear is
actually faith in the devil. Fear dispatches demonized
forces to set up the negative circumstances of your
belief. I will not work through fear. Trust that I
have your complete care in mind.
Wavering with indecision is
also an obstacle against receiving answers. When you
ask of Me, search your own heart. Ask yourself, “Do I
believe the Lord heard Me? Do I believe He will answer
this prayer?” If you can stand, knowing this to be
true, you are able to resist wavering and thus prepare
your heart to receive My Words.
“If any of you lack
wisdom, let him ask of God, that giveth to all men
liberally, and upbraideth not; and it shall be given
him. But let him ask in faith, nothing wavering. For he
that wavereth is like a wave of the sea driven with the
wind and tossed. For let not that man think that he
shall receive any thing of the Lord. A double minded
man is unstable in all his ways.” (James 1:5-8)
10/13/09: I typed the above rhema today into my
journal. And tonight I turned with anointed hands to a
page in one of my old Family Circus cartoon books. I
hadnt read them in years. The Lord used to speak to me
years ago through them when my son was a toddler.
I turned to this page! Jeffy
is searching in his very messy drawer. He said, “If
there wasnt so much JUNK in this drawer, I would be able
to find the other half of my yo-yo!”
A yo-yo is a symbol of vacillating between 2 opinions:
Up and Down, Yes and No.
I struggled with this all
month. Finally I had a breakthrough in the area I had
been vacillating about. I suddenly had a
that something I had misunderstood and resisted was
the LORD. The revelation came when I read a scripture
and applied it in a different way, directly to the
circumstance. I cried, repented and asked the Lord to
please forgive me. It was a long test in this area and
I was very tired of being sifted about this one issue.
In thinking back, I could clearly see how many lessons
I had learned through it. And I also saw how the Lord
put me through that particular part of my journey to
clean up my soul so that it would be aligned with Him.
Strong meat is sometimes very hard to chew and swallow.
But after we finally chew it up and swallow it, the
strength we gain from it is life long.
Heb 5:14 KJV
But strong meat belongeth
to them that are of full age, even those who by reason
of use have their senses exercised to discern both good
Heb 5:13-14 AMP
For everyone who continues
to feed on milk is obviously inexperienced and unskilled
in the doctrine of righteousness (of conformity to the
divine will in purpose, thought, and action), for he is
a mere infant [not able to talk yet]! But solid food is
for full-grown men, for those whose senses and mental
faculties are trained by practice to discriminate and
distinguish between what is morally good and noble and
what is evil and contrary either to divine or human law.
