Whispers of Rest

I am reading a book by Bonnie Gray called Whispers of Rest. It is really good. She has been challenging us to rediscover our dreams and/or begin to dream. At this season of life, which is very new and fragile in a way, I am learning to live again.

From the Heart of Abba Today:

 

This is the dream for now.
To REST in Me,
To come and continue to come to Me
From within every single moment of life.
To live as Beloved.
No need to measure up, get it right or figure “it” out.
Safe and secure.
To simply “be”,
Who you already are….Whispersofrestday 20.jpg

Rest vs Frazzled

psalm 46-10aa.jpg

From The Heart of Abba:

We were at worship Sunday and singing this song: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=eFByOX8Fb0M and the Lord began to remind my heart:

When you are tired of/from standing,
Weary from the race,
That is not a bad thing,
Or an indication that you have been bad.

It is rather an invitation to lay down and enter My rest.
Literally lay down,
Or choose a place to sit that creates rest in your spirit.

It is simply time to hide all that is you, in the shelter of the Most High, under the shelter of My wings.

Verses to Ponder:
In Luke 10:41-42 Martha is harried and worried from doing and Jesus speaks to her, I think cutting right to her true heart need and says, “But the Lord answered her, “Martha, Martha, you are anxious and troubled about many things, but one thing is necessary. Mary has chosen the good portion, which will not be taken away from her.”
And that one thing is to simply “be” with Jesus, resting all that we are in all that He is.

Psalm 91:4 He will cover you with his pinions, and under his wings you will find refuge; his faithfulness is a shield and buckler.

Matthew 11:28 “Come to me, all you who are weary and burdened, and I will give you rest.

Exodus 33:14 14 The LORD replied, “My Presence will go with you, and I will give you rest.”

Psalm 46:10 He says, “Be still, and know that I am God; I will be exalted among the nations, I will be exalted in the earth.”

This Is THE Day

From The Heart of Abba:

Beloved Ones, this is the day I have given you.
Yesterday and all the yesterdays before, were also gifts.

Often there is a time of preparation leading up to “this day”.
Even the most difficult days or seasons are PREPARATION for “this day” and all it will bring.

Beloved, because a thing is difficult or takes a long time, do not for one moment consider yourself a failure or that I have abandoned you in any way.

All of life is a process of revealing to you
That which needs either to be exposed, revealed or healed,
In your own heart.

In order that,
In the fullness of time,
My will will be accomplished (manifested).
In you, to you, for you AND for others as well.

Rest in Me…
Rest in My love…
Do not fear…
Do not withhold or withdraw your heart from Mine.

I AM is Emmanuel… for you, in you and with you…
Forever, all the days of your life.
And yes, each and every moment of your life as well.

Verses to Ponder:
Psalm 118:24 ESV This is the day that the Lord has made;
let us rejoice and be glad in it.
Psalm 139:5 AMP You have enclosed me behind and before,
And [You have] placed Your hand upon me.
John 10:28 ESV I give them eternal life, and they will never perish, and no one will snatch them out of my hand.
Psalm 139:16 Your eyes have seen my unformed substance;
And in Your book were all written
The days that were appointed for me,
When as yet there was not one of them [even taking shape].
Exodus 33:14 The LORD replied, “My Presence will go with you, and I will give you rest.”
Isa 26:3 You will keep in perfect peace those whose minds are steadfast, because they trust in you.
Philippians 4:6-7 AMP 6 Do not be anxious or worried about anything, but in everything [every circumstance and situation] by prayer and petition with thanksgiving, continue to make your [specific] requests known to God. 7 And the peace of God [that peace which reassures the heart, that peace] which transcends all understanding, [that peace which] stands guard over your hearts and your minds in Christ Jesus [is yours].

God Has Gone Before

Deuteronomy 31-8.jpg

From The Heart of Abba:

Everything is preparation.
Even for this season there has already been preparation.
Nothing is wasted.
Everything is used ultimately for your good.
Do not worry do not fret.
Do not become anxious during any season.

The Lord your God,
The One who created you,
The one who loves you,
Is always with you.

I am He who goes before.
I am He who encompasses you .
I am He who prepares the way.
I am He who says,
“This is the way walk in it”.
I am all you need because.
“I Am” that I am
And “I Am” is Emmanuel.

Verses To Ponder:
Exodus 3:14 KJV And God said unto Moses, I AM THAT I AM: and he said, Thus shalt thou say unto the children of Israel, I AM hath sent me unto you.
AMP And God said to Moses, I AM WHO I AM and WHAT I AM, and I WILL BE WHAT I WILL BE; and He said, You shall say this to the Israelites: I AM has sent me to you!
Deut 31:8 NIV The LORD himself goes before you and will be with you; he will never leave you nor forsake you. Do not be afraid; do not be discouraged.
Romans 8:28 And we know that all things work together for good to them that love God, to them who are the called according to his purpose.
Matthew 6:34 ESV Therefore do not be anxious about tomorrow, for tomorrow will be anxious for itself. Sufficient for the day is its own trouble.
Isaiah 30:21 And your ears shall hear a word behind you, saying, “This is the way, walk in it,” when you turn to the right or when you turn to the left.
