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.


VISION:  A reader had sent a question and asked:  I was wondering about your 2005/2006 rhema and how it fits with the bigger picture. 


AH:  I was led to turn in my 2005 rhema file and it opened to the following:




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 one sentence. 


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.



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)
