PARABLE:  Today I was awakened by a reminder call from my husband’s doctor.  I had been awake for several hours in the middle of the night and just got back to sleep and I wasnt very happy to hear her call.  I have asked her before if there is any way she could write it down on his chart to call after lunch, but they just cant bend.  So I asked Wayne this afternoon if he could soften the ringer on my bedroom phone, or stuff cotton in it somehow.  He said, “I tried that already.  We have at least 13 phones stuffed on the garage shelf because you dont like the ringers.”  That hit my funny bone and I started laughing and laughing.  The parable was SO funny to me!  I had the impression that the Lord was saying to me, you keep wanting to change your spiritual phone, because you dont like the way I call you!  And then I fondly remembered the story called, “What leg?” 



CONFIRMATION: This was really precious to me. This morning at prayer meeting I asked pastor if he had seen any pictures. He often sees them and then doesn’t share because he gets worried they may not be the Lord since he doesn’t understand them. The Lord so far has always given me a clear gift to interpret them for the body.

Pastor’s wife heard the Lord say, “What leg?” She felt she was supposed to ask me that question. It hit me between the eyes as I put the pieces together.

The first piece: I heard the Lord today say, "Language and boxes." Lately I have been wrestling with the Lord about how I hear Him. I hear the strangest things and I can piece them together, but sometimes they apply to several people all at once, and each mean something different. I know that sounds OK, but the phrases are sometimes really strange until you think them through. I have just wanted to hear Him in normal every day language and have it be a nice conversation... but it is in dark speech and sometimes I wonder if it is the Lord until after it is confirmed.

Bobby Conner said tonight that we put God in a box and try to make Him talk like we want Him to!!!! God told him, “I CAN TALK ANY WAY I WANT TO.” I was blown away when he said that. Then Bobby said, we are the clay, He is the Potter. I get that scripture all the time about arguing with the potter and have been wondering what I have been arguing about!!!

So God, in His hilarious and strange way, says to Pastor’s wife, "What leg??????" That is PERFECT language for how He talks to me!!!! The answer is. NO LEG. I do not have a leg to stand on in how He chooses to speak to me.

For years, I have heard your prayers and your longings for a deeper walk with Me. I know you have wanted to know My heart and to hear Me more clearly. It has been a long road and we have traveled a great distance together. I have spoken to you in parable form, for it was all that you could bear.

It was exactly the same when I shared My secrets with the disciples. At times I told them plainly, and yet they still were unable to hear the truth until after My Words came to pass. After the fulfillment, they were able to look back as My Spirit taught them with light and clarity all that I had spoken to them. Nothing was lost, and neither shall My Word be lost in your life.

There are many reasons why I have spoken in a strange language of bits and pieces, with dreams and even Words needing interpretation. Knowledge has a power all its own, and can lead to independence. Every part of a relationship with Me needs your utter dependence upon Me, to not only hear My Word, but to also understand it, then apply it.

I promise that I shall soon come and confirm that you have been hearing Me, and you will know that you have followed My pathway and listened as I have walked beside you. At that time, I will begin to open My Words plainly to you, and you shall have your heart’s desire, which is clearer revelation and face to face intimacy. Hope deferred makes the heart sick, but when the desire comes, it is a tree of life.

“Jesus always used stories and illustrations like these when speaking to the crowds. In fact, he never spoke to them without using such parables. This fulfilled the prophecy that said, "I will speak to you in parables. I will explain mysteries hidden since the creation of the world." (Matt 13:34-35 NLT)

UPDATE: My son asked me last night if when Bobby said that if it was quickened to me. I have never said anything to him about my fussing about how I hear the Lord. And I said yes that it blew me away. He nodded as though he knew that.

I asked him why he asked, and he said that it was quickened to him that it was a Word for me, although he did not know why, since I wrote the book on God talking in different ways!





HEARD: Once you get the hang of it, you'll understand.


PIX: I saw an angel with an invisible needle. She was making threading movements as though weaving the needle in and out, stitching something.


HEARD: Just a minute. What kind of leg do you want? Legs down first.


(standing on one's feet and not one's head.)
