word to ponder:  SHAME IS holding PETER at armís distance  10/03/06

 

There are some of My children who are easily dismayed and have chosen to stay in the outskirts of My love, because of suffering deep shame.  They are willing to hear Me through hand-me-down connections because the intimacy of My Presence brings their buried pain to the surface.  To face it all is too hot, they would rather stay numb and in a cold place, away from My direct touch.

 

They believe their failures are too great to deserve such an intimate place in My Presence.  They do not know the sweetness of having a wound lanced with My personal Word, the poison extracted, and then delivered in one impacting moment.  They dont know the relief of such a time before My face.  What took years to embitter can be extracted in one powerful exchange of My loving embrace.  Come Peter, I know you love Me.  Do not hold back.  Swim speedily to your loving Surgeon and I shall extract your deep sufferings of shame and bring your calling to life again.

 

 Deut 5:27 NKJV

"So it was, when you heard the voice from the midst of the darkness, while the mountain was burning with fire, that you came near to me, all the heads of your tribes and your elders. And you said: 'Surely the LORD our God has shown us His glory and His greatness, and we have heard His voice from the midst of the fire. We have seen this day that God speaks with man; yet he still lives. Now therefore, why should we die? For this great fire will consume us; if we hear the voice of the LORD our God anymore, then we shall die. For who is there of all flesh who has heard the voice of the living God speaking from the midst of the fire, as we have, and lived? You go near and hear all that the LORD our God may say, and tell us all that the LORD our God says to you, and we will hear and do it.'

 

John 21:7 NKJV

Therefore that disciple whom Jesus loved said to Peter, "It is the Lord !" Now when Simon Peter heard that it was the Lord, he put on his outer garment (for he had removed it), and plunged into the sea.
