Stand

trust God moon

From The Heart of Abba

Beloved,
STAND firm
In My Love
My Provision
My Protection.

That sort of standing
Is different than standing on your own two feet.

It is a LEANING all that is “you” in/on all that is “Me”

It is a running into the shelter of My Presence with you.

Remember I am always PRESENT with/to/in you
and where I am there is freedom.

Freedom from fear,
Freedom to “be” who I created you to be.
Freedom to live and move and have your very being in Me.

So Stand and continue to stand.
You are firmly and safely held secure
In My love.

(Kind of like the moon is firmly and securely set in the sky.)

Ephesians 6:12-18 12 For our struggle is not against flesh and blood [contending only with physical opponents], but against the rulers, against the powers, against the world forces of this [present] darkness, against the spiritual forces of wickedness in the heavenly (supernatural) places. 13 Therefore, put on the complete armor of God, so that you will be able to [successfully] resist andstand your ground in the evil day [of danger], and having done everything [that the crisis demands], to stand firm [in your place, fully prepared, immovable, victorious]. 14 So stand firm and hold your ground, having tightened the wide band of truth (personal integrity, moral courage) around your waist and having put on the breastplate of righteousness (an upright heart), 15 and having strapped on your feet the gospel of peace in preparation [to face the enemy with firm-footed stability and the readiness produced by the good news]. 16 Above all, lift up the [protective] shield of faith with which you can extinguish all the flaming arrows of the evil one. 17 And take the helmet of salvation, and the sword of the Spirit, which is the Word of God. 18 With all prayer and petition pray [with specific requests] at all times [on every occasion and in every season] in the Spirit, and with this in view, stay alert with all perseverance and petition [interceding in prayer] for all God’s people

When Your Heart Screams, “I Can’t”

psalm 61-2

My heart screams, “I can’t”
My emotions swirl.
My mind does not know or understand.
 
And yet,
Deeper than any of that,
I know,
Emmanuel is and will be
With me.
 
Life IS too much at times.
No!
A certain situation is too much,
All the time.
 
But we all will have those times,
The Instruction Book,
Tells us what to do.
Call on the LORD.
 
He, Who hears our heart’s cry,
Even when we have no words,
Hears and comes with healing,
Comfort,
Love and
Presence.
 
Psalm 18:6 In my distress I called upon the LORD; to my God I cried for help. From his temple he heard my voice, and my cry to him reached his ears.
Isaiah 65:24 Before they call I will answer; while they are yet speaking I will hear.
Psalm 61:2 From the end of the earth I call to You when my heart is faint; Lead me to the rock that is higher than I.

From The Heart of Abba Today:

I am holy and you are not. It is really that simple.

But I, because of My love FOR YOU,
Send My son, Jesus so that
in Him you would have the “rightness” you need in order to be able to live and move and have your being in Me.

My children have the right to come before me at any time, during any time and from within any time.
To be cleansed when you are dirty.
To be loved when you feel unloveable.
To be cherished and to find the rest your heart was created to be in.
Come to Me, Beloved,
Bring with you all that is you.
The good, the bad, even the ugly,
And simply REST for a time in My love, My care, My provision.
No need to fret, simply come.
As you come, each time your come,
You will find REST for your heart, your mind, your body and your soul.
You are mine,
Come before Me now.

I am using the navigators 30 Days of Praying the Names of God as a base for mini posters… kind of fun… and helps me focus… This one is interesting. It reminds us of the Holiness of God and that reminds us that none of us can achieve that level of “goodness”. Totally impossible. Which in turn points us to the need of Messiah Jesus, the ONE who sanctifies us.
In the Old Testament, they had all those rules and laws and methods to do that. None of which really worked.
Aren’t you grateful we have Jesus?

Rest in Elohim’s Love

God is Elohim

From the Heart of Abba Today:

Rest in Me.
REST in Me!
R-e-s-t in Me.

I know you are weary.
When you get still, as you are now,
Then you realize how weary you are.

Take time to rest in Me.
To be still,
To know,
To feel,
To simply “be”,
With Me.

After you rest,
While you are at rest,
You will also be able to go.
To go from a position of being at rest in Me, Means in My power.
My strength.
From a place of resting in Me.

Dodi Note: If Elohim created everything, by simply speaking it into being, then surely we can trust Him to take care of us. We are promised in the Word that His eye is on the sparrow, we can be sure he is looking after us too. Matthew 10: 29-31
29 Are not two little sparrows sold for a copper coin? And yet not one of them falls to the ground apart from your Father’s will. 30 But even the very hairs of your head are all numbered[for the Father is sovereign and has complete knowledge]. 31 So do not fear; you are more valuable than many sparrows.
Thinking of the vastness of Elohim today.

Next Moments of Life

retreatc

 

From The Heart of Abba

Isaiah 46:4 Even to your old age and gray hairs I am he, I am he who will sustain you. I have made you and I will carry you; I will sustain you and I will rescue you.

We may not know what our next moment will hold. But we DO KNOW who will be holding us in our next moment.

You may indeed feel overwhelmed
But you shall not BE overwhelmed

I am with you
I do not abandon you

Not when you feel distant
Not when you feel overwhelmed
Not when those pesky emotions
Pop out like a jack in the box
Not when you are falling apart
Or withdrawn
Or being sucked at by that vortex

I AM is still Emmanuel
In every situation of your life
Past present and future
I AM has always and forever will be
I AM

Beloved that does not depend on who you are
Nor choices you make
Nor what any other may think, say or do
It DOES totally depend
On the sure and certain truth
That I AM who I am
I will do as I say I will do

Beloved you belong to Me
And I AM all you need

Even when it does not seem true
I am Still I AM

When Life Is Too Hard

zech 4-6b

From the Heart of Abba
In response to, “It’s too hard for me”.
 
It is too hard for you.
And you don’t know how,
That is true,
But it is not too hard for Me.
And I do know what to do.
 
When you call out to Me,
I hear.
I come.
I enable you,
To draw near to Me.
 
In Me, you can do all things.
Even this.
The night does come,
But so does the day.
 
I am the LORD,
As well as your Comfort,
In the night and the day.

God Will Supply

god supply need

From The Heart of Abba Today:

Beloved,
I am God With You.
No matter what is going on,

When your storm feels so very big,
I am in the midst of it with you.

When life is calm and simple,
I am there with you.

It matters not the season of life, or the circumstances surrounding you.
Your only task is to enter My Presence.

The invitation is to come,
Just as you are,
In order to receive all you need,
In every moment of life.

Truly, Beloved, it is My desire,
To supply ALL your needs,
Your true heart needs,
From My storehouse of Glory.

From The Heart of Abba

I am your Father.
I am Elohim, who created you
I am Emmanuel, God with you 
I am walking with you and I will walk with you.
You may at times feel unseen and
like you do not matter.
Not so.
I am El Roi, your God who sees, cares and is with you in all times and for all time.

Yesterday at church. I think the reading was Isaiah 43 and the phrase from it was….forget the former things…I am not sure what the reading was but Isaiah 43:18 does say, “Forget the former things; do not dwell on the past.” Verse 19a says, “See, I am doing a new thing! Now it springs up; do you not perceive it?”

I like the photo for the names of God. It is dark in places and at the top left there is one of those prism sort of rainbow things but on the bottom right there is LIGHT and the light causes the other parts. If there was no light the dark would just be black and kind of invisible. If there was no light that prism would not be there. Same for us. Same for me. Yes there are difficult things but the LIGHT is there and often others can see the Light of Christ shining in us even when we can’t.

Jesus Is:

Jesus is quote

I took this Sunrise on the way to baby sit this week. The sun is in some ways like the Son. We can see the effect of sunrise in the sky long before we see the actual sun itself.
Do you think life is like that? Sometimes during hard times we can’t “see” the hand of God ourselves but others can see the effect and so can we if we are watching and waiting and expecting with hope.
The moon is always round (even when it doesn’t look so)
and day ALWAYS follows night
and Joy ALWAYS follows (and often is entwined in) sorrow.
