11/01/16 CONSIDER WHAT STUMBLES YOUR FAITH

 

HEARD:  What are you tempted by?  Lay it down, itís not worth it.  A trust issue.  Where your trust fails: in pleasing Me.  I give good gifts to My children.  What is a good gift?  What looks like Me.  Inside you know that. 

 

PARABLE:  THE PRINCESS AND THE PEA

Today I was in a sour mood about having such a sensitive conscience and hearing what I did and realizing how deeply it impacts my level of faith.  I was eating lunch and complaining to Wayne and one green pea fell down my chest and got stuck under my blouse. I stood up and pulled my blouse out to let the pea fall onto the floor.  When it plopped on the floor, both of us laughed out loud.  The Lord immediately reminded me of old rhema about the princess and the pea and I saw that I was wrestling with Him.

 

ANNA RHEMA 2/9/93:  RESTING PLACE

Princess.  Pea.  Rest standing up.  Ö No shame.  Motives.  Pure in My sight.

 

FROM THE WWW:  THE PRINCESS AND THE PEA

A literary fairy tale by Hans Christian Andersen about a young woman whose royal identity is established by a test of her physical sensitivity

 

The story tells of a prince who wants to marry a princess, but is having difficulty finding a suitable wife. Something is always wrong with those he meets, and he cannot be certain they are real princesses because they have bad table manners or they are too fat or thin or not beautiful. One stormy night a young woman drenched with rain seeks shelter in the prince's castle. She claims to be a princess, so the prince's mother decides to test their unexpected, unwitting guest by placing a pea in the bed she is offered for the night, covered by 20 mattresses and 20 feather-beds. In the morning, the guest tells her hosts that she endured a sleepless night, kept awake by something hard in the bed that she is certain has bruised her. The prince rejoices. Only a real princess would have the sensitivity to feel a pea through such a quantity of bedding, so the two are married.

 

The story ends with the pea being placed in a museum, where according to the storyteller it can still be seen today, unless someone has removed it.

 

WORD TO PONDER:  THE PRINCESS AND THE PEA 11/01/16

Beloved, each increase along your path has been to bring your conscience back to life. Yes, it has been a long journey since your childhood of learning the difference between right and wrong and becoming sensitive to the realms of My Spirit along with understanding what grieves Me and what passes inspection.  I separate everything between soul and spirit and make a clear distinction of thoughts and intents.  As My Spirit spotlights these things, each inkling you have of something not aligned is an invitation to lay it down.  Dear heart, donít let these inklings become stumbling stones that shipwreck your faith!

 

Consider the peas in your life!  Yes, like the princess and the pea story, I want My bride to be so sensitive to My heart that she would feel even one tiny pea inside her resting place with Me.  The peace I give is like a barometer to your soul.  When you wrestle to find your resting place in Me, ask My help to identify exactly what you are wrestling over.  It may be something very tiny in the grand scale of things, but it will become monumental until it is removed from your life.  Search for the pea and let it go dear one!

 

Hebrews 4:11-16 Let us labor therefore to enter into that rest, lest any man fall after the same example of unbelief. 12 For the word of God is living, and powerful, and sharper than any two-edged sword, piercing even to the dividing asunder of soul and spirit, and of the joints and marrow, and is a discerner of the thoughts and intents of the heart. 13 Neither is there any creature that is not manifest in his sight: but all things are naked and opened unto the eyes of him with whom we have to do. 14 Seeing then that we have a great high priest, that is passed into the heavens, Jesus the Son of God, let us hold fast our profession. 15 For we have not a high priest who cannot be touched with the feeling of our weaknesses; but was in all points tempted like we are, yet without sin. 16 Let us therefore come boldly unto the throne of grace, that we may obtain mercy, and find grace to help in time of need.

 

CONFIRMATION:  Right after posting this one, I turned to the following Word to Ponder and I knew the Lord was still speaking about this topic:

 

WHEN I SHINE LIGHT UPON YOUR HEART

Beloved, I AM light, and it brings Me much pleasure when you openly bare your heart to Me. I have been raining water on both your wheat and tares and they have been coming up together inside your heart. When harvest comes, I shine My light upon the tare and you feel overwhelmed to see the full fruit of it yourself, so big, so overpowering and so ugly. I feel your pain inside and desire to pull it up from its very roots. And again I say how much it means to Me when you do not shrink away from the full manifestation and knowledge of what you see. Those that love My light, do what is right and come into My light gladly.

 

My precious one, I do not want you to feel ashamed. Your nakedness is covered for I have covered you with My mercy and My blood. Try to look beyond this moment of truth and remember that I saw all of these things BEFORE you were born. And I chose YOU, My precious one. I chose you to be My very own. I am not ashamed of you, I LOVE YOU. Thank you for openly baring your heart to Me and offering up that which does not belong in your life. I will never abandon you in the process, but instead complete My good work in you.

 

John 3:20-21 NLT
They hate the light because they want to sin in the darkness. They stay away from the light for fear their sins will be exposed and they will be punished. 21 But those who do what is right come to the light gladly,

 

Ps 139:23-24 NKJV
Search me, O God, and know my heart; Try me, and know my anxieties; And see if there is any wicked way in me, And lead me in the way everlasting.

 

1 John 1:10 NKJV
This is the message which we have heard from Him and declare to you, that God is light and in Him is no darkness at all. If we say that we have fellowship with Him, and walk in darkness, we lie and do not practice the truth. But if we walk in the light as He is in the light, we have fellowship with one another, and the blood of Jesus Christ His Son cleanses us from all sin. If we say that we have no sin, we deceive ourselves, and the truth is not in us. If we confess our sins, He is faithful and just to forgive us our sins and to cleanse us from all unrighteousness. If we say that we have not sinned, we make Him a liar, and His word is not in us.
