EXPERIENCE: Today I suffered extreme exhaustion, (probably due to taking some prednisone this week) and I had 2 doctors appointments.  So I was really praying for physical strength to get through the day. 


In our Ears2Hear group, we are practicing the ways God speaks and how to minister with them.  Right now we are doing a lesson on God Speaks Through Remembrance.



One of the ways God speaks to us is to bring things into remembrance.  Understanding the truth of that when having the mind of Christ, is a key to hearing God that lives inside of you more.  The more fluent you become in being led in this way, the more you learn to trust His leading through bringing things into remembrance. 


John 14:26 But the Comforter, who is the Holy Spirit, whom the Father will send in my name, he shall teach you all things, and bring all things to your remembrance, whatsoever I have said unto you.


1 Corinthians 2:14-16 But the natural man receives not the things of the Spirit of God: for they are foolishness unto him: neither can he know them, because they are spiritually discerned. 15 But he that is spiritual judges all things, yet he himself is judged of no man. 16 For who has known the mind of the Lord, that he may instruct him? But we have the mind of Christ.


Romans 8:14 For as many as are led by the Spirit of God, they are the sons of God.


While I was driving to the doctor appt I thought, “If I can ask the Lord for a prophetic Word for someone through His bringing something into remembrance, then I should be able to do the same in abiding in Him during the day.  So I turned that into a prayer and also ask Him, “What would You like to talk about? Can You bring something into remembrance to introduce the subject?”


QUICKENED REMEMBRANCE: I laughed because immediately I thought of a red licorice rope!  It was very obviously Him since it just popped into my memory and came out of the blue. 


QUICKENED EYE GLANCE:  I turned my head to look at a car and it was the same color van as ours and the last three letters on the plate spelled FLY.


PONDERINGS:  I prayed that the Lord would help me understand what a red licorice rope had to do with His Word.  It was kind of funny at the process He took me through to get the revelation and I totally delighted in the process.  He brought into memory that the word WAIT upon the Lord, means to bind together by twisting.  That is what red liquorish looks like, a rope.




OT:6960 qavah (kaw-vaw'); a primitive root; to bind together (perhaps by twisting), i.e. collect; (figuratively) to expect:

KJV - gather (together), look, patiently, tarry, wait (for, on, upon).


I then realized that a twisted ROPE is a lifeline, which is His Word that He gives us to hold onto.  And red is the travail and sacrifice of laying down our own agendas to wait upon His way and timing.


When I drove into the doctor’s parking lot I noticed the wind gently blowing and it was such a lovely day as I parked under a huge shade tree.  I was pondering the word FLY I was thinking about a bird waiting for the wind and how it spreads its wings to rise higher and soar. 




The red licorice represents this scripture!  This was SO funny to me because He has given me this scripture and Word to many, many times.  He took me the long way around to tell me He was answering my urgent prayer for strength and also gave me a fun treasure hunt in the process.  Smiles.


Isaiah 40:31 But they that wait upon the LORD shall renew their strength; they shall mount up with wings as eagles; they shall run, and not be weary; and they shall walk, and not faint.


I felt SO satisfied to have walked through the process of that Word, intimately knowing I was following His lead, like a divine setup!  After the doctor appt I went to get groceries, and was just completely spent once I landed in line at the check stand.  After I placed my groceries on the ramp, I saw a man’s hand put something down right next to my divider I had put down at the end of my groceries. 


Oh my!  It was a bag of red licorice!  I looked at him and he smiled at me and I wondered if he was an angel!  I felt so comforted with his smile.  Then as I was paying for my stuff, I looked back to see what else he put on the ramp.  He had a pile of different kinds of bird seed, and that is all!


I had a such a special day of intimacy in receiving His simple promise that as we learn to pray, then wait upon the Lord, He does renew us and give us strength and provides for our future just like He feeds the birds!


Isaiah 40:31 But they that wait upon the LORD shall renew their strength; they shall mount up with wings as eagles; they shall run, and not be weary; and they shall walk, and not faint.


Matthew 6:25-34 Therefore I say unto you, Take no thought for your life, what you shall eat, or what you shall drink; nor yet for your body, what you shall put on. Is not the life more than food, and the body than clothing? 26 Behold the fowls of the air: for they sow not, neither do they reap, nor gather into barns; yet your heavenly Father feeds them. Are you not much better than they? 27 Which of you by taking thought can add one cubit unto his stature? 28 And why take you thought for clothing? Consider the lilies of the field, how they grow; they toil not, neither do they spin: 29 And yet I say unto you, That even Solomon in all his glory was not arrayed like one of these. 30 Therefore, if God so clothe the grass of the field, which today is, and tomorrow is cast into the oven, shall he not much more clothe you, O you of little faith? 31 Therefore take no thought, saying, What shall we eat? or, What shall we drink? or, How shall we be clothed? 32 (For after all these things do the Gentiles seek:) for your heavenly Father knows that you have need of all these things. 33 But seek you first the kingdom of God, and his righteousness; and all these things shall be added unto you. 34 Take therefore no thought for tomorrow: for tomorrow shall take thought of the things for itself. Sufficient unto the day is the evil thereof.


AH:  Today I turned to the following Word to Ponder with anointed hands:



I AM bringing you into a new season of sensitivity to My Spirit.  Can you see the wind?  Can you feel the wind?  Can you hear the wind?  So it is for My Spirit, you cannot see My Spirit, but you can see, feel and hear the effects of My Spirit.  I AM going to make you so sensitive that you will be able to pick up the smallest vibrations of My comings and goings, and this gift will be like a compass as to My direction.  When your put your finger upon these vibrations, you will be able to pick up the pulse of My heartbeat.  Listen for this evidence!  It will be beautiful music for your ears to hear and increase your faith.


John 3:8

The wind blows where it wishes, and you hear the sound of it, but cannot tell where it comes from and where it goes. So is everyone who is born of the Spirit."


Heb 11:1-3

Now faith is the substance of things hoped for, the evidence of things not seen. 2 For by it the elders obtained a good testimony.  3 By faith we understand that the worlds were framed by the word of God, so that the things which are seen were not made of things which are visible.
