RHEMA 4/13/11 WISDOM, WALK IN BALANCE
HEARD: Give her something to do. Wiser.
Duck easy. She's a duck hiding in the bushes.
WISDOM: Sometimes God just lets us keep going
until all the striving of flesh has come to naught...
and then we learn to walk in balance.
A reader had sent a question and asked: I was wondering
about your 2005/2006 rhema and how it fits with the
AH: I was led to turn in my 2005 rhema file and it
opened to the following:
WORD TO PONDER: SETTING,
OILING AND MOVING YOUR HINGES 9/15/05
I train and equip with every
kind of circumstance to prepare all for their destiny.
In those preparation years, I have a certain purpose in
mind to use some like a hinge to open or close a door.
These doors are so vital and so important that all of
history will be effected by its opening. I take every
circumstance and weave it into perfect training, so that
when the day comes and I insert that hinge into place,
it will be oiled to smoothly move doors open or shut.
These hinges on doors are
like corner pieces to a puzzle that are important
connecting pieces turning corners. One’s entire life
may be honed and sharpened and prepared to only say ONE
sentence to the right person, and that one sentence is
the arrow into the heart turning the other person in the
right direction. That other person is a key person,
holding opportunity in their hands. Because of his one
turn, choices are made that effect all of history.
Consider this, all of history turning and rotating from
There are many, like Esther
who have been finely honed to be hinges in the doors of
history. Much training and preparation has been
completed, so that at the right time, the right season,
the right Word will be spoken to change the heart of one
key person, who will in turn change history. Consider
your placement before great men, and pray that the Word
from your mouth will be My plan. Consider that all of
your life has been fined honed for such a time as this.
Est 4:14 NKJV
For if you remain
completely silent at this time, relief and deliverance
will arise for the Jews from another place, but you and
your father's house will perish. Yet who knows whether
you have come to the kingdom for such a time as this?
INTERPRETATION: I was given an opportunity in
2004, and it became a "hinge" year for me. I walked
through a brand new open door at that time and then in
2005, that decision resulted in a huge transition in my
life that caused much work, stress and overload in my
life. I saw the hand of God in the process and much of
what I have been given now in the ministry is related to
what I sacrificed during those years. I have grown so
much through it and also taken through the washing
machine and dryer. (smile) Sometimes I wonder if I
made a wrong turn back then, but then when I read my
years of rhema before that, I know I could not have made
any decisions other than what I did. Sometimes we get
so sifted from the strivings of our flesh that it is
hard to see the forest through the trees and all we want
to do is just hide in the bushes and wait it out.
FEELING OVERWORKED AND UNDER PAID 5/11/01
My Beloved Wife, I have been trying to tell you
something for some time now, but I have been unable to
get you to seriously listen to Me. It grieves Me to see
you work so hard to produce. You work until you
collapse, then you come to Me for help. Oh how I want
to be a part of your daily load, not merely at the
beginning or ending of each day! I want to walk with
you each step, for when you divide the load in
fellowship with Me, your part becomes light and easy.
My grace is always sufficient.
This weariness you are feeling is threefold. Part of
it, is you feel you must produce to win My favor, My
approval. This is far from the truth, and you already
know that in your mind, but you haven’t internalized
it. Let go of your striving and accept My unconditional
love for you. Part of it, is the great darkness upon
the earth and the enemy’s wearing down of the saints.
And part of it, is I AM allowing your stress. For when
you come to the end of yourself, you come to Me. And I
want YOU. I AM a jealous Husband and I want My wife.
There is a better way. If you would bring each
responsibility to Me, I will help you streamline and
simplify your life so that each day has a better
balance. If you would give Me access, I can teach you
how to delegate to those who have the skills and the
heart to help you. I can spotlight the unnecessary
things for you to release. And I want to be a part of
the process of that which remains. Then we can have
fellowship in every part of your day. We will take one
thing at a time and enjoy the process as duties unfold.
My Presence is always close to those who would seek Me.
My Presence is ready to bubble up within you, with the
effervescence of many delights. A sudden burst of joy
can lighten your load like no other.
And if you would but listen, I can speak to you through
the parables of what you are doing with your eyes, your
hands, your relationships, your duties. My Spirit will
breathe upon a parable and you will suddenly know with
pure delight that I AM the One Who silently stands with
you and speaks in every thread of your life … if you
would but listen. I delight in building bridges of
communication with you, and delight as your eyes are
opened to this wonderment! Your days will become “our”
days and nothing will be the same again. For when your
day is yoked with Me, it becomes light and easy and I
will give you the pause and refreshing recreation for
your longing soul.
“Anyone who is willing to hear should listen and
understand! And be sure to pay attention to what you
hear. The more you do this, the more you will
understand--and even more, besides. To those who are
open to my teaching, more understanding will be given.
But to those who are not listening, even what they have
will be taken away from them.” (Mark 4:23-25 NLT)
“Come to Me, all you who labor and are heavy laden,
and I will give you rest. Take My yoke upon you and
learn from Me, for I am gentle and lowly in heart, and
you will find rest for your souls. For My yoke is easy
and My burden is light.” (Matt 11:28-30 NKJV)
