SIMPLIFY YOUR RESOURCES   3/23/08

 

PARABLE:  Today I was building a 10,000 page pdf file that I could use for the quickest database search possible instead of using other search alternatives.  I needed it to also include the links to the posts to my website, so it took longer to build.  It took 6 hours so I decided to play one of the solitaire games I have on my pocket pc and chose one that is called Simplicity.  I looked at the odds and it said 4 out of 5, and I had never found one with such great odds.  I expected to win the first couple games because the odds were so high.  After losing them, I decided to start putting some thought into strategy and not just randomly playing it.  I immediately saw that one needs to leave at least one blank space to give room to move and organize the cards.  The more blank spaces the better because at the end of the game you may need to lay a lot of cards down that donít fit elsewhere.

 

About that time an alert popped up on my computer that said Word was out of memory and I needed to make sure I really wanted to do that command, because it could not be undone.  This was after several hours of working on establishing the links.  I breathed a sigh of relief when it continued to safely finish the file.  I knew I was pushing it to build the file so big but I really needed the file to stay together.

 

QUICKENED MEMORY:  I suddenly remembered that I had heard the word ďSimpleĒ a number of times recently.  I knew this parable was the Word of the Lord.

 

RHEMA 3/16/08

HEARDI am training you.  How to stay simple.

 

Rom 16:18-20 NKJV

For those who are such do not serve our Lord Jesus Christ, but their own belly, and by smooth words and flattering speech deceive the hearts of the simple . 19 For your obedience has become known to all. Therefore I am glad on your behalf; but I want you to be wise in what is good, and simple concerning evil. 20 And the God of peace will crush Satan under your feet shortly.

 

RHEMA 2/29/08 

HEARD:  Letís keep our wits about us.  Back at the starting gate. One, try to keep them simple.  ... For all of our trying, it isnt for the lack of it. 

 

RHEMA 3/06/08

HEARD:  Profound.  Sheís not getting this yet.  Profound and simple.  Listen.  Organized.  That makes a difference.  Paint by numbers.  Keep it simple.  Click, click, click.

 

RHEMA 3/06/08
HEARD: When you let go, I plugged in. Isnt that simple? Believe.

 

Luke 22:42-43 NKJV
"Father, if it is Your will, take this cup away from Me; nevertheless not My will, but Yours, be done."

Matt 3:15 AMP
But Jesus replied to him, Permit it just now; for this is the fitting way for {both of} us to fulfill all righteousness {that is, to perform completely whatever is right}.

 

HEARD: The end of the day, itís a good day. I feel good. I know I am doing the right thing. Itís keeping me. Beary happy. News for you, the waterís flowing. And beary wealthy ever after. Beary funny.

HEARD SONG: I sing because Iím happy. I sing because Iím free. For His eye is on the sparrow, and I know He watches over me.

 

WORD TO PONDER:  SIMPLIFY YOUR RESOURCES  3/23/08

To every season there is a purpose.  And at the end of every season is an accumulation of many puzzle pieces fitting together into one place.  It can become increasingly cumbersome unless you stay organized and remain committed to simplify your life.  Beloved, you need space set aside for now and for your future.  If you use all your resources now, you wont have it for future growth.  Find ways to save time, money, energy, emotions, and space.  Pinpoint what is encumbering you and give it to Me and be willing to let go.   Hire help if need be to simplify and lessen your load.

 

I want you free to move forward into the next phase of My plan and if you are bogged down with burdens, you will be too pressed to move and too bound to expand.   My plan for you is expansion without limitations on your growth, productivity and passion.  Beloved I want you to come to your fullest potential.  Make a plan to simply your life by throwing out what does not work, simplifying what does, and condensing all into something manageable.  This is not for demotion, but so that you can build on solid foundations with even greater measures. 

 

Acts 2:46-47 NKJV

... they ate their food with gladness and simplicity of heart, praising God and having favor with all the people.

 

2 Cor 1:12 NKJV

For our boasting is this: the testimony of our conscience that we conducted ourselves in the world in simplicity and godly sincerity...

 

CONFIRMATION:  when I finished posting the above, I started in on a new project and used my new search file.  I came to this entry and it was quickened to me as a parable of consolidating and simplifying our lives into one solid place.

 

rhema 11/26/95  CONSOLIDATION INTO wholeness

HEARD: Sell. Assignment.

 

[Thinking about building the body towards wholeness.]

 

HEARD: Connected.

 

PARABLE: As I was editing the above sentence in my book, the word wholeness was separated on two pages: whole-ness. I knew this was a parable of division and I needed to fix that! So I adjusted the leading and put wholeness together on the same page.

 

Eph 4:1-6 NKJV

I, therefore, the prisoner of the Lord, beseech you to walk worthy of the calling with which you were called, 2 with all lowliness and gentleness, with longsuffering, bearing with one another in love, 3 endeavoring to keep the unity of the Spirit in the bond of peace. 4 There is one body and one Spirit, just as you were called in one hope of your calling; 5 one Lord, one faith, one baptism; 6 one God and Father of all, who is above all, and through all, and in you all.
