Are we standing? Are we standing outside waiting? When I come, will I find faith? Feelings, they come and go. My Word doesn’t, it abides forever. That’s a long time.

Bilateral thinking. Needing help. Stability. You belong to Me says the Lord, I will help you. The difficult road is beneath you little one. You are much higher than its mere journey. Stay together until the pieces are loaded. Hope and protection.

HEARD: I heard a door bell ring.
HEARD: In synch. Alignment. Pick up. Onto Daddy’s page.

STRENGTH TRAINING: For several months now I have been hearing the Lord say, “strength training” and I have waited upon Him to help me understand.

PARABLE: We have been enjoying our new grandson and I have been praying the Lord will use him to speak His Word to me. Today our daughter in law said that the last couple days he has learned to climb and pull himself up to tables, chairs, couch etc. This really tickled me because the last 2 times we babysat him, my wrist and hand were flaring to the point that I could not pick him up a normal way. So in order to pick him up, I needed him to get closer to me in my chair, and then I could pick him up normal with my left hand, but put my braced right arm out straight and use it as kind of a lift fork maneuver. He would come up to my chair and whimper for me to pick him up and I would pat my leg and tell him to come closer. He started grabbing onto my leg and pulling himself closer and working his way slowly up onto it. He could not pull himself up all the way to a stand, but his tummy was totally off the floor. Each time he was getting stronger and more determined. After he would reach so far, I could lean over and pick him up and together we enjoyed our hugs and kisses. (Happy Grammy!)

I saw this as a living parable of how the Lord meets us. When we are weak and fumble around in our faith, wanting Him to pick us up and minister to us, our prayers are not the greatest, and our lives are not perfectly coordinated and in synch with where He wants us. And yet He “draws” us “coaxes us” and “encourages” us to seek Him. Scriptures are packed with seeking Him and finding Him. It is a vital part of “finding” Him.... although... smile, He is not lost...

Each time He responds to our needs as we turn towards Him, and He calls us to come closer! So we inch a little closer and then He calls us again. Finally we make a connection where He has reached down and met us more than half way... we meet Him in face to face intimacy and have our hugs and kisses time while He has helped us build our spiritual muscles of leaning into Him and upon Him. It is the perfect picture of my life in the Lord.

Sometimes I am so physically sick or weak I hardly have breath for prayer. I simply think my prayers and cry out for help. Other times I am so discouraged it feels like the weight of the world is oppressing in upon me, and all I can do is whimper and make an effort to pray something very pathetic. Some times the spirit of intercession comes upon me and the spirit of might fills me with faith and power and authority and I know all heaven is dispatched to the need. And you know what? There is not one bit of difference to God.

He doesnt say in His Word, “Dear child, only if you stand up, then I will respond powerfully for you.” Instead He says, “Dear child, SEEK ME and you shall find Me.“ Everyone of us have spiritual muscles, and they are tested in every place possible to help them grow. Beloved, do not become discouraged in your strength training. In His infinite mercy, He will bend down from heaven and pick you up as you extend your effort towards Him.

Deut 4:29-30 NKJV
But from there you will seek the LORD your God, and you will find Him if you seek Him with all your heart and with all your soul.

Matt 7:7-12 NKJV
"Ask, and it will be given to you; seek , and you will find ; knock, and it will be opened to you. For everyone who asks receives, and he who seeks finds, and to him who knocks it will be opened. Or what man is there among you who, if his son asks for bread, will give him a stone? Or if he asks for a fish, will he give him a serpent? If you then, being evil, know how to give good gifts to your children, how much more will your Father who is in heaven give good things to those who ask Him!
