RHEMA 10/26/07 HELLO THIS IS GOD SPEAKING
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?”
RHEMA 9/17/00 GOD HAS A SENSE OF HUMOR!
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
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
WORD TO PONDER: RIDDLES SOON TO BECOME CLEAR
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!

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.
