Overcoming Famine for Hearing


RHEMA 12/13/05

AH: Tonight I turned with Anointed Hands to the poem, overcoming the pain of silence. It is exactly where I am right now.


{Oh Papa I don't want to stop hearing You, or stop writing for those who need to hear the things You share with me! Bring us not into famine Lord, keep us daily supplied Papa! Please help me to breakthrough the resistance I face!!



As I collect my focus to You this day, my heart finds its peace away from the fray. I have learned a lesson I will never forget, that fellowship tasted, is joy deeply met.


How deep Your pain is when we come and go, in and out of Your life, as our ebbs do flow. How can You live with touch and go - except that Your grip is much deeper than we know? So hold on tight as I wince and wane. Keep me from running as I face the flame. Turn my pain into passion and light my way, as I yield to You and to what You say.


Let love remain firm and in its place, as communion without Words deepens before Your face. In times of silence, in times of despair, help me always to know You are there. Reaching beyond the distant miles, bowels of intercession bridge me for awhile. Carry me through this, Lord I pray. Open the windows of heaven to us this day. Let the silence be broken, as we receive Your token. That we can hear, as You draw near.


Abba, thank You.


Ps 28:1-2 NKJV

To You I will cry, O LORD my Rock: Do not be silent to me, lest, if You are silent to me, I become like those who go down to the pit. Hear the voice of my supplications when I cry to You.



STRONG ANSWER TO PRAYER: Immediately I turned to the following Word to Ponder and it is the answer to times when we are in famine for hearing God.


IT TAKES TWO 8/03/04

My love is limitless. It knows no boundaries in all of heaven and all of earth. Deep within the heart of men, when their wills keep Me at bay, I AM relentless to break through their walls. I will knock, and knock and knock and knock. Yet finally, because I know their level of resistance, I will back away and approach them at their own level of need for Me. I want to reach them more, I want to connect on deeper levels but it is to the exact degree of their own passion and fears that they open wide their mouth for Me to fill. Because of their lack of passion, the mouth of their hearts can only stretch so far, so then much of what is sent ends up being cast aside. When they grow hungrier for Me, I will again meet them at their level of need. This is similar to famines and fastings that make a starving soul ripe and ready for anything we can give them.


Amos 8:11 KJV

Behold, the days come, saith the Lord GOD, that I will send a famine in the land, not a famine of bread, nor a thirst for water, but of hearing the words of the LORD:



Then I turned with AH to the following Word to Ponder:



Mother's milk is kept flowing by the demands of a hungry baby. Likewise, it is the hunger of My people that keep the gifts of My prophetic ones flowing. The hungry cry out to Me in their thirst and need. I answer their cries in many ways, and one of them is to bond them with My prophetic voice. Even as a baby learns to suck, so My people learn to draw upon My prophets for My Words for them. It is My way, My voice, My touch to a desperate world.


Do not take the glory for this, for this is My work for the love of My children. Merely understand the process and know that I am establishing My Word through the gifts of prophecy. Let My milk flow freely for all to be nourished, supplied and equipped.


“Now I, John, saw and heard these things. And when I heard and saw, I fell down to worship before the feet of the angel who showed me these things. Then he said to me, "See that you do not do that. For I am your fellow servant, and of your brethren the prophets, and of those who keep the words of this book. Worship God.” (Rev 22:8-9 NKJV)


QUICKENED QUOTE: If you don't go into the kitchen, you wont get burned, but you will go hungry. (smile)






HEARD: will you come play and listen to Me? Fluent expression. So where do we go from here? CLEAR SPEECH. Communion.


VISION: I saw a goblet of red wine being held up in a toast.


HEARD: Graduate.


VISION: I saw a swishing across the sky with graduated colors and twinkles as though with a divine paint brush.


HEARD: Pure highlights. I was thinking about finishing the story. Filling in the blank spaces.


Shame. Ouch. Get rid of it. Not My will. Freedom comes from the inside out. Trust. Level of faith. Apprehension. Behind you. Keep your focus on Me, not where you have been.


Listen. I want you healthy. Your sadness. Let's do this together. We won. Fun! Joy bubbles galore. POP. Seeing things from a new perspective.


It's been a long time since we just talked. I love you My daughter. Finding ways to communicate. All over the place. Smile. You listen.


Grief. I understand. How you feel. Famine of hearing. Shallow. They turn this way and that, but never to Me. Searching and not finding. In the wrong places.


Matt 6:31-34 NKJV

"Therefore do not worry, saying, 'What shall we eat?' or 'What shall we drink?' or 'What shall we wear?' For after all these things the Gentiles seek . For your heavenly Father knows that you need all these things. But seek first the kingdom of God and His righteousness, and all these things shall be added to you. Therefore do not worry about tomorrow, for tomorrow will worry about its own things. Sufficient for the day is its own trouble.


John 6:26-27 NKJV

Jesus answered them and said, "Most assuredly, I say to you, you seek Me, not because you saw the signs, but because you ate of the loaves and were filled. Do not labor for the food which perishes, but for the food which endures to everlasting life, which the Son of Man will give you, because God the Father has set His seal on Him."
