RHEMA 1/11/11 SINGING IN THE WILDERNESS
HEARD: She's singing as in the days of
old. Let us be one. Fellowship, a unique
'Therefore, behold, I will allure her, Will bring her
into the wilderness, And speak comfort to her. 15 I
will give her her vineyards from there, And the Valley
of Achor as a door of hope; She shall sing there, As
in the days of her youth, As in the day when she came up
from the land of Egypt. 16 "And it shall be, in
that day, "Says the Lord, "That you will call Me 'My
Husband,' And no longer call Me 'My Master,' 17 For
I will take from her mouth the names of the Baals, And
they shall be remembered by their name no more. 18 In
that day I will make a covenant for them With the beasts
of the field, With the birds of the air, And with the
creeping things of the ground. Bow and sword of battle I
will shatter from the earth, To make them lie down
safely. 19 "I will betroth you to Me forever; Yes, I
will betroth you to Me In righteousness and justice, In
lovingkindness and mercy; 20 I will betroth you to Me in
faithfulness, And you shall know the Lord.
WORD PUN: FOR REST 1/17/11
Today as I glanced at the following graphic and the word
"forest," I suddenly thought the word pun, FOR REST.
I realized it was an answer to prayer about why we have
been in the wilderness, for rest.
Heb 4:1-3 NKJV
Therefore, since a promise remains of entering His
rest, let us fear lest any of you seem to have come
short of it. For indeed the gospel was preached to us as
well as to them; but the word which they heard did not
profit them, not being mixed with faith in those who
heard it. For we who have believed do enter that
Heb 4:9-10 NKJV
There remains therefore a rest for the people of God.
For he who has entered His rest has himself also ceased
from his works as God did from His.
They shall have linen turbans on their heads and
linen trousers on their bodies; they shall not clothe
themselves with anything that causes sweat.
Also Bob Jones says that the wilderness times were to
teach us to hear the Lord's voice. That truth connects
with the above scripture in Hosea 2. We learn to find
intimacy in Him and become One with Him when all else is
put away and the voice of the world are quiet.
RESTING TO HEAR ME 11/14/08
I have had a very hard year of pain and am taking
prednisone right now. It only lasts 6 hours in my
system and then I face a downhill slide of exhaustion
and pain until the next pill, because prednisone
suppresses the adrenal glands from working. I tire very
easily and have to pace myself. This month starting the
new school I have stretched past my limits and missed
not hearing from Him very much. I have been unhappy
about that and today I turned with anointed hands to the
following Word to Ponder. It was a precious Word that
exactly hit my need.
LEARNING TO REST
Come often into My Presence and be still before Me.
Rest, My love, rest and listen to Me. The days are busy
and distracting. Spend them in communion with Me even
when you are in activity. However do not work yourself
to exhaustion, for in that place the craving of your
body shouts louder than your desires to hear from Me.
Learn to lay the burdens down and meditate on Me upon
Ps 63:6-8 NKJV
When I remember You on my bed, I meditate on You in
the night watches. Because You have been my help,
therefore in the shadow of Your wings I will rejoice. My
soul follows close behind You; Your right hand upholds
