I can see is you have a process of hearing God and harvesting the rhema. That is something I still struggle with. I do record all my dreams and visions, but maybe I do not think they have application for the body of Christ and more think it is either personal or for our church.


If you have time. I would be interested in understanding more about how you harvest and connect your rhema.



Yes I totally understand the struggle.  Recording my rhema is something I have been doing since 1984.  I discovered with pix, visions and hearing, that I would totally forget in the morning what I saw and heard at night unless I recorded them.  Dreams are pretty easy to remember, but not the other ways God speaks at night.  At first I used a flashlight pen under the covers.  Then I moved to the other bedroom when my night activities kept Wayne awake and now I use a mini hand held recorder.  I am always excited to find out what I received, it is almost always a surprise! 



I developed the habit of keeping up, because I suffered too much NOT to.  It was a burden on me emotionally and there was little fellowship in it for me, to just do the labor and the job of typing.  So after much prayer, He gave me the passion and grace to change my habits. Part of the joy of doing it daily (as much as possible) is that I spend time chewing, researching scripture and pondering it.  If it is too much of a load, then it becomes a job.


There is nothing wrong with it being a job.  I understand part of my calling is to be a Mary, a scribe and so I do my best to be faithful to stay at that post.  Faithfulness IS a job and a commitment. But the joy of it, is the fellowship I gain from it with the Lord and also the people the Words minister to as we share increasing levels of revelations and confirmations regarding the subjects.


Luke 2:19 But Mary kept all these things, and pondered them in her heart.


Luke 8:15 But that on the good ground are they, who in an honest and good heart, having heard the word, keep it, and bring forth fruit with patience.



You mentioned not knowing about the application of your dreams and visions, whether they are for you or the church or others.  That is a very important question and the answer to that is knowing your calling and how you fit.  For instance He has called me a forerunner and a bridge and I have walked ahead preparing a way for others to follow.  By the very nature of the Words, they are prophetic.  I know that even my life is a prophetic sign, and so as much as I can I share out of its wealth, it is His Word to others. Therefore I know that the Words I receive are not just for me but for those who are following. 


Isaiah 62:10 Go through, go through the gates; prepare you the way of the people; build up, build up the highway; gather out the stones; lift up a banner for the people.


Another very important part of my life is walking out intercessions.  That has been very private to me (thus far) and that rhema fills my journals that are not public.  So I try to share a careful balance in being transparent as much as I can, but not uncover what needs covered.  When I hear things regarding intercessions, the Lord shares His secrets to me, like I might be watching a sermon on Christian TV and the Lord tells me something about the minister, etc.  Then I pray and then the Lord shares more rhema about the same concept revealing it isn’t just about that one minister but many ministers, and thus it continues as a journey of hearing and praying.


Galatians 4:19 My little children, of whom I travail in birth again until Christ be formed in you,


Another part of my calling is to be His witness.  He has called me to share my testimony of what I see and hear Him doing and saying.  He has told me that I have complete liberty to share my personal life transparently as much or as little as I want, as it is a volunteer testimony and there is a cost involved. 


Matthew 13:21 Yet has he not root in himself, but endures for a while: for when tribulation or persecution arises because of the word, immediately he is offended.


Lastly, the Lord gathers the prophetic into schools where they learn and grow from one another’s Words.  He has meant them to partner together in a body of kindred language and hearts.  And He gives each of His students parts and pieces that were meant to gather as a whole.  It is important for each to learn how to share their parts so that others can grow up together.


1 Corinthians 13:9 For we know in part, and we prophesy in part.


The Lord has many purposes for His Word, but it is always to PLANT into the earth, to bring forth a harvest.  We can plant His Word through prayer, decree, prophesying, death to self, worship, poetry, music, art, etc, etc!


Isaiah 55:11 So shall my word be that goes forth out of my mouth: it shall not return unto me void, but it shall accomplish that which I please, and it shall prosper in the thing for which I sent it.



As to harvesting rhema, when I hear or see something during the day that is quickened to me, I am drawn by it and kindled to it.  That could be a quote, or a bumper sticker!  I speak it in the recorder and then when I type it, it is inserted into that date.  When I go to harvest it, often I realize that within a few days before or after that the Lord has been talking about that, and so I add it as an insert to the subject, but keeping the date intact of when it was actually given to me.  So as I harvest, I build themes like as you see the actual posts come out, with indented material, scriptures, quotes, etc.  The Lord gives me the ingredients of His food and then I compile and cook it.  I try to show the process so that people  learn how to fish for food, not just given a meal.


Isaiah 28:9-10 Whom shall he teach knowledge? and whom shall he make to understand doctrine? them that are weaned from the milk, and taken from the breasts. 10 For precept must be upon precept, precept upon precept; line upon line, line upon line; here a little, and there a little.


The actual connecting of the pieces is part of the fellowship I experience in Him.  It is not just a brain activity of compiling “stuff.”  I am keenly aware He is leading me with eye glances to a certain place, and quickened memory. He is the One bringing me all the pieces of rhema and then He uses other ways He speaks to help me connect them.  We are doing it together.  Most of it is being drawn and led by His Spirit, like a feeling to reach for my Words to Ponder book for an anointed hands, or a memory of a buzz word that He once spoke.  I type the buzz word into my database and sure enough that was the rhema He wanted inserted right there. 


The whole process is a fellowship where I experience that He is encircling me with His Word. 


Psa 139:5-6 NLT

You go before me and follow me. You place your hand of blessing on my head. 6 Such knowledge is too wonderful for me, too great for me to understand!
