RHEMA 12/13/01 RUNNING FROM YOUR CALLING???
PRAYER MEETING: Today at prayer meeting, they
were praying for me. One intercessor came over to me and
said, "Lord I pray for this hunk of clay that You are
making." I loved it, and that is what I felt like - a
big blob on the wheel. Then later he said, "Well forgive
me for asking, but are you arguing with God about
That about blew me away. I loved that Word too. I told
him that the Lord had been telling me for years that I
was arguing with Him. And I kept asking Him what about.
He finally has been telling me what this year, after all
this time. And I said yes I think I am still arguing,
but not sure what.
So another intercessor came over and said, this is no
disrespect or anything, but I heard Moses, and he argued
with God about his calling. (She doesn't know that I saw
Moses and the burning bush when I received my calling.)
And as soon as she said that, I saw a picture of a past
dream where Cuddles our cat was trying to squeeze her
big buns into that little pipe to try and hide. I had
grabbed that tail and would NOT let go. I applied gentle
pressure to pull her out, and if she continued to resist
it hurt her, and finally she knew I was bigger than her,
so she let go and I pulled her out of that pipe.
So today after I got home, I was thinking about how I
had argued with the Lord about my calling all these
years and He wasn't changing His mind at all. And I
suddenly realized how long I had been arguing and I saw
a picture of the intercessor from today's prayer meeting
say, "Boy Moses must have argued with God a LOT!" I
burst out laughing and only saw the grace of the Lord to
love us inspite of our humanity. Somehow I felt so much
release from the whole thing, and I perceived all the
clouds of witnesses that had been watching that
particular scene play out, just breathed a sign of
relief. I think I am finally swallowing my cup. And so I
think the Lord is going to hand me my blankie... that I
will learn to like.
RHEMA 7/10/96 STOP RUNNING
DREAM: Cuddles saw a hole in a pipe and tried
to go into it to hide. I grabbed her tail and wouldn't
let her go inside. She resisted me and really wanted
that hole. Finally I firmly but gently pulled her back
and held her very close so she couldn't squirm and until
she relaxed in my arms. Then we got her blankie from my
past piano teacher's house. It was snowy outside and she
needed it. I said to her, “Here's your blankie that you
WORD TO PONDER 7/10/96 STOP RUNNING
You were wounded in battle and that is behind you. It is
time to move on. You struggle with your identity, since
it does not fit the world's mold. But I have called you
to be a leader and that is that. Sometimes you feel like
your calling, and sometimes you don't. It does not
matter which, because someday you will see it and
believe it. You may try to run and hide your head, but
you can not run from Me. I will catch you before you
disappear into a hole, and draw you out - backwards, if
necessary. And I will give you My warm blanket and
canopy of protection that you resist so strongly. You
will need it in your climaxing intercession yet to come.
So relax now in My arms and let Me hold you. I will not
let you go. I have kept you in My strong grasp and no
matter how you struggle, you belong there.
Ex 13:21-22 NKJV
And the LORD went before them by day in a pillar of
cloud to lead the way, and by night in a pillar of fire
to give them light, so as to go by day and night. He did
not take away the pillar of cloud by day or the pillar
of fire by night from before the people.
