Seek the Lord… Restoring the Image…

I’ve been doing quite a bit of thinking lately about Seeking the Lord…

What does it mean to Seek the Lord with all your heart?

This is obviously something which the Lord wants us to do, so how do we do it?

We all have desires…

These desires must be surrendered to the Lord…

Once these desires are surrendered – whether they’re our desires or ones which He’s given to us – then we are ready to Seek the Lord…

This is an “all inclusive” process but the Lord seems to deal with us “one desire at a time”…

Once one desire is surrendered more of our attention can be spent on Him and then He’ll deal with the next desire and then the next and then the next…

Sometimes things kind of “snowball” and we find Him dealing with a number at once…

Kind of like pulling out a whole tangled set of roots or a ball of string which has got caught on various things…

When He comes there is deliverance, when we “make noise” about being surrendered or try to “trick Him” into believing us He is “not convinced”… 🙂

He is so “brainy” and so Wise that He knows exactly what the problems are in our lives before we do…

He knows just how and when He will deliver us and when He does we are set free “indeed” in that area…

The key is to find how we’ve lost “the Image” in that particular area and how we’ve been focusing on “false gods” in that particular area…

Romans 1 made a big impact on me recently when I read it in correlation to the Wrath of God…

For the wrath of God is revealed from heaven against all ungodliness and unrighteousness of men who suppress the truth in unrighteousness, because that which is known about God is evident within them; for God made it evident to them. For since the creation of the world His invisible attributes, His eternal power and divine nature, have been clearly seen, being understood through what has been made, so that they are without excuse. For even though they knew God, they did not honor Him as God or give thanks, but they became futile in their speculations, and their foolish heart was darkened. Professing to be wise, they became fools, and exchanged the glory of the incorruptible God for an image in the form of corruptible man and of birds and four-footed animals and crawling creatures. Therefore God gave them over in the lusts of their hearts to impurity, so that their bodies would be dishonored among them. For they exchanged the truth of God for a lie, and worshiped and served the creature rather than the Creator, who is blessed forever. Amen. For this reason God gave them over to degrading passions; for their women exchanged the natural function for that which is unnatural, and in the same way also the men abandoned the natural function of the woman and burned in their desire toward one another, men with men committing indecent acts and receiving in their own persons the due penalty of their error. And just as they did not see fit to acknowledge God any longer, God gave them over to a depraved mind, to do those things which are not proper, being filled with all unrighteousness, wickedness, greed, evil; full of envy, murder, strife, deceit, malice; they are gossips, slanderers, haters of God, insolent, arrogant, boastful, inventors of evil, disobedient to parents, without understanding, untrustworthy, unloving, unmerciful; and although they know the ordinance of God, that those who practice such things are worthy of death, they not only do the same, but also give hearty approval to those who practice them. (Romans 1:18-32 NASB)

The thing that “struck” me as I read this the other day was that after losing our focus on God as being our Provider and our Source and our All Sufficient One we were given over to starting to look at “one-another” to provide these “needs” for us…

We started worshipping each other – worshipping other human beings – and longing to see them and relying on them and looking to them for our source of comfort and “all things good” in this life…

Unfortunately the Lord didn’t like this and gave us over to worse perversions where we actually lusted after others of the same gender to meet these “needs” which we had – men with men and women with women committing “indecent acts”…

What I’ve seen in my own life is that as I’ve drawn closer and closer to God – or been drawn closer and closer to God by the Holy Spirit – these “indecent acts” have begun to “fall off”…

The point which struck me so strongly is that the answer – the deliverance to all the “maladies” of the human heart – is found in looking back to God to be all that He has always wanted to be for us…

When we trust ourselves we are “given over” and in the “given over” state we really can’t see the “woods for the trees” and we really can’t “get back” – we are blocked from “getting back” to God…

We have lost His Image…

Only the Holy Spirit can “bring us back”…

Praise You Lord Jesus…

The more that I have seen of my “old self” the more I agree with the Word that no good thing dwells in it…

It is not capable of any good thing…

It wants to be its own boss…

It actually doesn’t want to serve the Lord or Satan it wants to be its own boss…

I saw in myself this morning as I spent time with the Lord exactly the same thing – I saw it very clearly and I saw that only the Holy Spirit was capable of “coming in” and restoring “the Image” in me of the Lord Jesus Christ as He surrendered to His Father as the Second Adam…

The Lord showed me this morning – for all you men out there – that Adam had a need and that was why the Lord gave Him Eve…

He was lonely…

He had the Lord but He was lonely…

The Lord in His Love gave Adam what He believed he needed and then Adam turned around and choose what he’d been given – the gift which the Lord had given him – over the Lord when it came time to protect Eve when she was deceived by the serpent…

Adam choose the gift – as Romans 1 says – he chose the created thing over the Creator who is God Blessed Forever…

Why did Adam do this?

He lacked faith…

He grabbed and he became selfish…

He thought of himself…

The Image he had with God before that point in time was selfless…

He had all his needs met by God and by the gifts which the Lord had given him…

He was not “grabbing” but “receiving”…

He was gratefully receiving and not looking at the gifts but looking at the Giver…

He was not “demanding” but he was “trusting”…

He had a beautiful relationship with the Lord and he swapped it in the hope that he could keep his “gift” – the wife which God had given him – as he saw that she would be punished and he choose to be punished with her rather than trying to “stand in the gap” for her and ask for God’s forgiveness…

Adam was in transgression, i.e. he knowingly sinned, whereas Eve was deceived…

The Lord would have forgiven Eve if Adam had have stood up for her…

I really believe that…

There is a scripture in the Law which says that if a woman (a wife) makes a vow and her husband hears about it and “annuls” it before the day is over that it is “annuled”…

I really believe this would have happened in Adam’s case but he thought selfishly and sinned to “keep” his wife instead of putting God first and acting in love towards his wife and petitioning God on her behalf…

What does it mean to Seek God?

I believe it means to put Him above all else…

I believe it means to be completely satisfied with Him Alone…

I believe it means – no matter who the person is – that we do not worship people but we only worship the Lord…

I don’t care whether it is my wife or my children or my grandchildren or my boss or my friends or the people who I pray with or share with about the Lord – if I put any of these people above the Lord, I am committing idolatry…

Thou shalt have no other gods before me. (Exodus 20:3 KJV)

Why is the Lord such a Jealous God?

Because He knows that only He can satisfy the desires of our hearts…

Our wives or our children or our “best friends” or “prayer partners” or any one else can’t satisfy our needs…

They can’t understand us or empathize with us or “be there” for us or “meet all our needs” like the Lord can – they are just not able to – only the Lord is able to do this…

To the degree which we have grown in the Lord we have something to offer to one another and we do offer it but we are not the Lord…

There is no substitute for the Lord…

What does it mean to Seek the Lord?

It means that all our focus, all our energy, all our enthusiasm is spent in the pursuit of God…

Everything we do is for Him, everything we do is in pursuit of laying our burdens down at His Feet and receiving from Him the comfort which only He can give…

I – I have discovered – am (in my old self) a very “needy” person…

I have longed and longed and longed to have people around me who can “understand me” and “empathize with me” and all those other “touchy feely” things which I don’t really like to admit 🙂 but I have seen – just this morning actually – although this process has been going on with me for quite a few years now – that only the Lord is my Comfort – I can only go to Him to be my Comfort and all other comfort I receive “unsolicited” from my brothers and sisters is a blessing from the Lord but not something to be “expected” or “solicited”…

I think the Lord is incredibly patient with us in this respect bringing us back to a place where the Image can be restored in us…

He has “all the time in the world” for me to come before Him and “pour out my heart” before Him…

Trust in Him at all times, O people; Pour out your heart before Him; God is a refuge for us. Selah. (Psalm 62:8 NASB)

The victory – the Overcoming Power of God – is where we reach a place where we do not need human companionship to provide our comfort – this is the place of victory…

The human spirit indwelt by the Holy Spirit is amazingly resilient…

It can withstand anything…

It is not affected with losing those close to it – as it sees them as fellow human beings indwelt by the Holy Spirit who is enabling them to withstand temptation in the face of adversity and stay close to God…

Seek the LORD and His strength; Seek His face continually. (1 Chronicles 16:11 NASB)

The greatest act of human bravery is a man or a woman watching their wife or husband being martyred for their belief in the Lord and not “cracking” or “losing it” but “letting them go” being strong in their faith in God and knowing that they will see them on the other side and that they were a “gift” not a “possession” and that their lives do not “depend” on them – they will “stay true” to the Lord…

Every good thing given and every perfect gift is from above, coming down from the Father of lights, with whom there is no variation or shifting shadow. (James 1:17 NASB)

Every Perfect Gift…

I have a confession to make…

Coveteousness has been a real problem for me in my life…

I believed that I’d been delivered from it until this morning – until I brought before the Lord a recurring desire which has been in my heart and I realised that I still had coveteousness in my heart in that area…

The answer was that the Lord is my Comfort…

I have needs – just like Adam had needs – but God is my Comfort…

Coveteousness, the Lord told me back in 2010, is “wanting anything that the Lord has not given me”…

Wow…

That’s a pretty “full on” definition…

And it hit me “right between the eyes” when He first told me and I received it…

This “gnarly old problem” – as old as Adam – of expecting comfort or companionship or someone just “being there” is something which somehow “went under the radar” at that time but it surfaced “full on” this morning as I “pressed in” to find an answer to what has been “peturbing” me…

Whether we are married or whether we are single – whether we have people all around us or whether we are completely alone – we have a Friend “who sticketh closer than a brother” and Praise His Name – His Name is the Lord…

He is our Closest Friend – He is the Fourth Man walking in the Fiery Furnace…

He is always with us, never leaving us, never forsaking us…

Whatever He calls us to do – there we will find Him…

There is satisfaction in no one else…

Only He can satisfy…

Blessed be the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, the Father of mercies and God of all comfort, who comforts us in all our affliction so that we will be able to comfort those who are in any affliction with the comfort with which we ourselves are comforted by God. For just as the sufferings of Christ are ours in abundance, so also our comfort is abundant through Christ. (2 Corinthians 1:3-5 NASB)

No one owns anyone else…

No matter what the relationships are or how they are formed no one “owns” anyone else…

Only the Lord owns us and only He deserves our attention…

Any attention which we give any other human being on this planet must be because the Lord has told us that this is what He wants us to do…

No other attention which we give any other human being on this planet is positive or brings Glory to God…

I am guilty in this respect – we do not “give” to “get”…

It’s not enough to “just know” that you’re married so you should do, “x, y & z” – it’s not enough to know that you’re a child and so you should do, “a, b & c” – once the Holy Spirit fills us He is the One who tells us what to do and anything which we do which He has not told us to do is sin – it is presumption – just like it is sin when we don’t do what we know we ought to do…

Fall Holy Spirit and pierce to the heart…

Pierce me Lord…

Pierce my heart Lord – I cannot change myself – change me Lord for Your Glory…

Let me surrender to You and stop my rebellion against You…

Never let me “live” again…

We are to hear His Voice – in the place where we are seeking Him – we will find Him and He will tell us what it is that He wants us to be doing – I am preaching to my own heart tonight and sharing what the Lord started to reveal to me this morning as I sought Him about this – as I type I learn – I am also preaching this to all who would hear – to all whom the Lord would give “ears to hear” – please listen to this, it could change or save your life…

Let the Anointing be released for deliverance from the spirit of coveteousness…

Of “self-centred” living…

Of “using” other people…

O Lord release us all…

Give us grace to be released now in the Mighty Name of Jesus…

Let us be “strong” on the inside and know our Place in God…

I can’t win this Lord – I need You – I need Your Strength…

Know our security in God…

No matter what we have gone through let us know our security and our Place in God…

Pull us all through Lord to that place – that green field – high up on that plateau where we know our “independence” in God – that He is enough for us – and then begin to find our “inter-dependence” with each of our brothers and sisters in the Lord who we find standing with us on this plateau…

Bring us all – the whole Church of the Living God – there Lord in the Mighty Name of Jesus…

As we obey Him – following His Still Small Voice and following the Voice of the Lord Jesus and the Voice of the Father we will hear His Voice and do the things which He is calling us to do and as we do them He will meet us with His Comfort…

It “comes with the territory” – “and lo I will be with you always even to the end of the age”…

We must “go” on the leading of the Holy Spirit with any activity we undertake…

We are not called to “please” other human beings – even human beings who know the Lord – but we are called to please God – by focusing “up” 🙂 on God we are called to Seek Him and by Seeking Him we will Find Him who is Life Eternal…

I am speaking to myself – I can not be “soft” on myself any more – like the Apostle Paul I am starting to get a taste of what it means to “beat my body” and “make it my slave” so that after I have called others I may not myself be disqualified for the prize…

May God give wisdom to all who read this…

May understanding and conviction be given to all and may all find comfort in knowing that it is God Alone who gives Comfort and in bringing us to a state of emptiness and “neediness” He is calling us to Seek His Face Continually and to find all our streams in Him Alone…

God Bless you all…

Set us all free Lord who read this – let us be strong, sympathetic, but strong Warriors for Your Name – loving You more than any other – in the Mighty Name of Jesus, Amen and Amen…

About andrew james horton

Hi, my name is Andrew James Horton... I am a Kiwi (New Zealander), born in Christchurch (05 September 1971), now in my mid-forties (I feel so old saying that)... I am blessed to be married with five children and six grandchildren... :-) I am at present a Principal Structural Engineer, Director working in Christchurch, New Zealand... I am passionate about prophetic intercession and about revival both in New Zealand and throughout the world... I am passionate to pray that the Church, the Body of Christ, the Bride of Christ, will be all that He - the Lord Jesus Christ - desires her to be in our generation... I felt that the Lord gave me the name of this blog site, "a house of prayer for the nations - prophetic intercession for worldwide revival" and wanted me to "put it out there" and start recording the prayers which are on my heart to pray in the hope that others would also be encouraged to share the prayers which are on their hearts to pray and that in the unity of the Spirit we could participate together in this activity in different locations around the world as He leads us... If the Lord leads you, let's join in prayer for the Lord's will to be done on earth as it is in heaven in our generation... Love in the Lord, Andrew

4 Responses to Seek the Lord… Restoring the Image…

  1. Hephzi says:

    “Rock of Ages, cleft for me, let me hide myself in Thee”

  2. Amen sister, The Lord gave me Philippians 4:19 this morning when I did an internet search for “all my needs are met in Him” (that phrase came to my mind)…

    I’d never seen Philippians 4:19 like that before – in terms of comfort and companionship and having someone to “cry on” like an understanding and caring and concerned companion – someone who understood…

    “And my God will meet all your needs according to his glorious riches in Christ Jesus.” (Philippians 4:19 NIV)

    I have been prayed for – I sense this – I sense this strongly – and I am close to “breaking through” into this “realm” where I have “no needs” in man (or in women) but I have all my needs met in God…

    Earlier on this morning He told me that I would win this fight – I began to rejoice…

    I know that I will win this – He will win this in me – and then I will be able to set a number free who have been battling with this and when we are – then we can march…

    Then we can move – then we can mobilize and go and do what He has called us to do…

    Every string will be “cut” and all that “holds us back” will be removed…

    I see it in the Spirit as I type and I rejoice…

    Others may have broken through to this place of unconditional surrender but I haven’t yet – but it is close – I sense it close and I sense that I am being prayed for as I type…

    I praise God for His Love to me and in turn I want to share that Love with the world…

    Nothing else…

    That Love…

    Praise the Lord sister, you will be released and the Lord will give you the desire of Your Heart – which is to Love Him with all your heart and with all your soul and with all your strength and with all your mind and no matter how anyone treats you to be able to Love them back with His Love as it flows through you – you will know this sister, you will know this and you will be released, in His Precious Name I pray, Thank You Jesus, Amen and Amen…

  3. Set us all free Father into that liberty of knowing that no human being or spiritual being other than the Lord Jesus Christ, the Father and the Holy Spirit can meet all our needs…

    All our needs are met in Him…

    He removes desires from us that have not originated with Him…

    Deep desires which are so ingrained and we have always believed must be part of the human condition, part of the way which God made us, we suddenly find to not be so – they are the result of the fall…

    We really are designed to function when we look to God alone…

    We really are not designed to live in “dependence” on others to provide any “need” which we believe we might have…

    The Lord truly is Enough…

    He meets every need which our new heart has…

    He does not meet the needs which our old heart has…

    This is the confusion we go through…

    Knowing the difference between the two…

    All our needs are met in God – when we pray according to His will He hears us – He meets the needs of the new heart as it cries out to Him but ignores the cries of the old heart as it cries out for the fulfilment of it’s own desires – it’s own “needs”…

    It – the old heart – lies to us that these are “genuine needs” and that the Lord is not meeting them making us “dis-trust” the Lord and go about finding ways to meet these needs ourselves…

    Independence from God eventuates…

    Independence from God leads to death…

    Independence from God leads to a life of misery – God in us opposes our “old selves” in their quest for satisfaction outside of Himself…

    We quarrel and fight – we do not have because we do not ask, when we ask we do not receive because we ask “amiss” that we may spend what we get on our pleasures…

    This is the fight we face…

    Anything which causes us anger when we do not get “what we want” or “our own way” does not come from God or from our new heart…

    It comes from the old heart…

    It needs to be destroyed…

    The Truth sets us free…

    The Truth is that even if we find ourselves in a “dead end marriage” or an “abusive relationship” or in an “ongoing crisis (stressful type) situation” or an overbearing boss makes our lives at work miserable – satisfaction is not found in “getting away” from that “difficult” (too hard for us) situation but surrendering to it to the Lord for Him to teach us what He wants to teach us through it and pour in His Comfort – like the scripture from Corinthians I shared above says, He comforts us in our affliction and the measure of comfort is the measure of the sufferings of Christ which we endure…

    If He says that it is “enough” then it is “enough”…

    We do not need to try and “make things better”, we do not need to try and “sort out the problem” – we endure – we submit to the will of God for our lives – and then we see Him come through in whatever fashion He chooses to set us free…

    Freedom comes from the inside out…

    It does not come from escaping from our problems but enduring through them until the Lord releases us – then there’s no “nagging doubt” in the “back of our minds” – then we know that the Lord has released us and we are free – we have “stood” and we will continue to “stand”…

    Freedom comes when we let go of any choices which we think we have the right to make…

    When we are offering up our lives to the Lord and we do not find in ourselves a decision which we would prefer but we can just wait and accept whatever the Lord might say – then we know that that “indifference” has been produced in us by the Holy Spirit…

    He Alone can produce this kind of “indifference” in us – no “striving” or “sharp” “pushing” “must do this” or “must do that” or “must intercede for this” or “must surrender that” nothing that comes from fear and nothing which puts “pressure” on us or involves us “holding it up” to “ensure its success”…

    This is what I have been learning – when I hear His Still Small Voice and know it is Him praying through me and releasing me through me, choosing through me – then I know that I am being released…

    I put no trust in any prayer that I pray…

    I only put trust in the prayers which the Holy Spirit prays through me, He prays through me as I admit that I cannot do anything to help myself, He initiates this admission and then He “comes in” and prays through me – He lifts me up…

    Just as a husband can “annul” the words spoken by his wife so the Lord can and does “annul” the words which I speak rashly and He protects me because I am part of His Bride…

    I have joined myself to the Lord and I am one spirit with Him…

    He cannot deny Himself…

    Whilst we are going through deliverance, voices speak through us which are not the Voice of the Holy Spirit – we hear things coming out of our hearts which are not pleasing to the Lord but we do not “stop those” or “put a lid” on them but we trust the Lord and we let them out and as we do the Holy Spirit destroys them…

    I have experienced this – it is a freaky experience – and yet it works – the Lord delivers and as you hear yourself – your old self – speaking those words the Holy Spirit rises up within you to bring conviction and to bring repentance and to bring that grief over your sin…

    That grief that once you see what is it that has been operating through you – or hiding in you – you break…

    You see – just like when demons manifest during deliverance which we’ve seen with others – so you experience deliverance as you pour out your heart before the Lord – I have experienced this just with me and the Lord twice now – in fact more times now that I think of it – and it is powerful when it is initiated by the Lord…

    These things just “come out” in the Lord’s timing…

    Once we come – as a sister was sharing with me the other day – to a place where we are not conditional in what we are willing to share with our brothers and sisters, i.e. not to proud to share anything with anyone if the Lord asks us to – then there may be times where our deliverance is just between the Lord and us and there may be other times when it is “public” or “semi-public” but the Lord will enable us to “go through with it” as He has created the “death” in us to do so (Love You Lord, Thank You Jesus)…

    When we have died to what anyone thinks of us in any area it is only because the Holy Spirit has worked this in our hearts – this has been a progressive experience for me to date…

    As He enables us this is what we need to do, just wait and see what He will instruct us and then obey this – trusting Him to provide all that we need and knowing that His anointing of Peace will be upon us…

    There will be the Power of Peace which follows us in all our conversations, even when we are “dropping our guts” there will still be that “covering of Peace” if that “covering of Peace” is not present then we shouldn’t be “spilling our guts”… 🙂

    Why am I sharing all this?

    Sometimes deliverance only comes when we humble ourselves and admit that we can’t deliver ourselves…

    I wouldn’t be surprised if that’s the way it always comes…

    “Humble yourselves before the Lord and He will lift you up”

    “If he has sinned he will be forgiven – confess your sins to each other and pray for each other so that we may be healed”

    If you have peace to confess your sins to someone then confess them – God will hear your heart – your desire for deliverance and He will send deliverance – through whatever means He so chooses…

    He will send deliverance…

    Praise You Jesus…

    (I sense that I am going to be tested on this… 🙂 – Father have Mercy upon me)

    Love in the Lord,

    Andrew

    O Lord let Your deliverance fall on all who read this (me included) – let us be set free as we abandon ourselves to You…

    Let us feel Your Anointing coming upon us to confess our sins and to unburden ourselves before You – if You call us to confess to our brothers and sisters let us be given the grace and the Peace to do this – create in us the willingness to open up to whomever You lead us – let us let go of anything which anyone thinks of us so that we can run in the freedom which You have created us to run in…

    Let us run…

    Let us run…

    Let all fear go…

    Let all fear go…

    Let us all be perfected in love…

    I used to believe that I had been “perfected in love” but now I see that there is more – I have not yet been “perfected in love” – but I am grateful for all the Love that He has worked in me – my understanding of His Love for me – that He has worked in me to date…

    Let us all be “perfected in love”…

    Let all fear go…

    Let us see that You accept us unconditionally and have a plan to remove sin from us – that even if our “old self” fights “tooth and nail” (which it will) to resist You – You will overcome – because You are an Overcoming God (Praise You Lord, Praise You Jesus, Thank You Lord :-))…

    And everyone who is born of God overcomes the world… 🙂

    Hallelujah!!!

  4. “But seek first His kingdom and His righteousness, and all these things will be added to you.” (Matthew 6:33 NASB)

    This is the heart of faith…

    “Let go of your life completely, give it to Me and I will give you everything you need to live your life in obedience to Me” – that’s my paraphrase of what the Lord said through Jesus so many years ago…

    The Lord was speaking through Jesus – Jesus was the Lord – great Mystery – He was the I AM and yet the Lord was speaking through Jesus to each of our hearts and He was saying, “Give yourselves to me – unreservedly, unconditionally give yourselves to Me – and I will make sure that nothing is withheld from you that you need to keep you in that position of surrender for the rest of your life”…

    Hallelujah Jesus!!!

    I am rejoicing tonight…

    I am rejoicing in the freedom of coming into that place of surrender…

    I am rejoicing that I have decided that this is where I want to live for the rest of my life…

    I’m not thinking what my wife will decide, or my children or my grandchildren or my mother or father or my best friends or my workmates or my boss or my CEO or the owners of the company that I work for – I am thinking about the Lord – what does He think…

    And when He looks down at me tonight He can see that I have chosen to put my life into His Hands…

    What He tells me to say I will say…

    Whatever the consequences are of saying what He tells me to say He will protect me…

    Whether He protects me by allowing me to lose my physical life is really irrelevant…

    I will be protected by Him in my spirit and I will not waver in faith because He has given me the faith to commit my life – practically – in every detail into His Hands…

    I am not my own – I have been bought with a price – therefore I will glorify God in my body and in my spirit which belong to God…

    I am not my own…

    He is my Lord…

    In this condition I am open to doing whatever He tells me to do…

    I don’t feel any ties to anyone…

    I feel only tied to Him…

    He is my only tie, He is my only protection…

    He is my Rock and my High Tower from the enemy…

    The enemy may strike me down but the Lord will raise up an army against him which will defeat him and his purposes and plans for this world…

    There is no way in which the Lord’s plan and purpose for this world will be defeated…

    The army which He will raise up will be invincible in the sense that even as it is “mown down” it will rise again – it will raise up stronger and more determined to make His Name a Praise in all the earth…

    We are on the winning side…

    We need to loose our lives now and live in the freedom of that “deadness” – knowing that we could be “mown down” at any moment and being content that He is more than enough to handle every need which we have in our lives…

    Every need…

    Hallelujah Jesus!!!

    Every need is met in You…

    Seek first His Kingdom and His Righteousness and all these things will be added to you as well…

    Everything…

    Everything will be added…

    He will lead us every step of the way…

    Step by step…

    We’re not focusing on the steps, we are focusing on Him…

    We only need to know what He tells us…

    We don’t need to know anything else…

    Only what He tells us…

    Our curiousity needs to be crucified…

    Our desire to know needs to be crucified…

    Our desire to control, to be in control, needs to be crucified…

    Our desire to “use” the Lord as a “genie” or as a “fortune teller” needs to be crucified…

    We are not in control of the Lord – He is in control of us…

    We are His servants – and that’s the way it’s designed to work…

    “Take My Yoke upon you and learn of Me” – is what Jesus said, Jesus had taken the Father’s Yoke upon Him and He was learning from the Father even though He was God – He was learning from the Father…

    So are we – to learn from the One who had nowhere to lay His Head – He learnt that from the Father and we are to learn that from Him…

    He inhabitted Glory – the Glory which we know nothing of – and yet He came to earth and followed His Father around wherever He went – whatever His Father wanted Him to do – He did it…

    He didn’t complain…

    He didn’t “pull rank”…

    He didn’t question, yes, He said, “If it is possible” – but He did not question…

    He did not raise His Voice against His Father…

    He Respected His Father…

    And He obeyed His Father…

    Unto death…

    Unto death…

    And we are called to live like Jesus lived…

    As He is so are we in this world…

    We are called to live like Jesus did – as He is so are we to be in this world…

    This is the work of the Holy Spirit – no human being can do this work…

    It is “out of bounds”, it is beyond our capability – only the Spirit of the Living God can complete this work in us – the same Spirit who raised Christ Jesus from the dead who lives in us…

    Praise His Holy Name…

    “By this, love is perfected with us, so that we may have confidence in the day of judgment; because as He is, so also are we in this world.” (1 John 4:17 NASB)

    The Love of God is endless to all who belong to Him…

    He does not love us any differently…

    We are all loved by Him the same…

    There is no difference…

    Yes, He calls some to be this and some to be that and pours out His Love on some like He doesn’t seem to on others but we are all loved the same – in eternity we will all share in the perfect knowledge of His Love the same in ever increasing and increasing measure…

    No one – no matter how stunted they might appear on earth – who knows His Love will remain so in heaven – He will love them to the fullest extent possible – scripture promises us – “then we shall know fully even as we are fully known”…

    We will all know Him fully in heaven – why not know Him as fully as we can possibly know Him now?

    Why wait for heaven?

    Why not know Him now?

    What is there to lose?

    There is nothing to lose and everything to gain…

    In gaining Him you gain Life Eternal…

    In gaining Him you gain freedom from the oppression of evil spirits who have “a bit” of you left to “play with” and make your life “a misery”…

    In gaining Him you lose everything in the world but gain everything of eternal value – peace, His Presence, Love, Joy, Patience, Kindness, Goodness, Faith, Meekness and Temperance – temperance is the ability to be provoked and feel nothing, feel nothing but compassion towards those who are provoking you – nothing but compassion…

    In gaining Him you gain the ability to die with dignity…

    Doesn’t matter if you die naked with 30 lashes across your back with no friends, no family, no supporters, no company, no companions, it doesn’t matter – all heaven rejoices with you – all heaven – all the angels, all the saints in glory, the Father stands, Jesus stands, the Holy Spirit stands, They applaud as you die with dignity in Their Presence…

    Holy Jesus…

    I feel the Fire as I type…

    I have never been here before…

    I feel the Fire….

    I know that I will be tested…

    But being tested just makes my faith stronger…

    Because everyone who has been born from above overcomes the world…

    Feel it with me…

    Feel it with me….

    Feel the Fire of the Holy God…

    Release….

    Release….

    Release…

    Release Your Fire and Your Anointing on us all…

    Sin can only make fools out of us…

    We have no “comeback” with sin…

    We have no “place” with sin…

    It is not our master and it is not our security…

    It has nothing to offer us but grief and misery….

    Sin is an abomination to any people…

    We hate sin because we Love God…

    We hate sin because we Love God…

    We hate sin because we Love God…

    Release Your Anointing Lord…

    Holy Hatred for sin comes from the Love of God…

    He is All So Holy that we hate sin…

    We can not abide in sin and we would rather die right now than doing so any longer…

    We hate sin because it has been born in us by the Holy Seed which has been deposited in us – Jesus Christ Himself – the Holy Seed of God Almighty – God Almighty in Human Flesh – Born, Died, Rose Again, Alive for Evermore, Always Making Intercession for us – and none of us will be left behind…

    It brings Him great glory to ensure that each of us appears before Him in Zion…

    Hallelujah!!!

    The Greatest proof of His Triumphant Victory over death and the grave is our overcoming sin in our lives…

    He has called us to be overcomers and everyone who is born of God overcomes the world…

    Hallelujah!!!

    We do, we beat the world, we beat what the world can achieve, even if we only do it in one way that the world can’t achieve – we have overcome the world…

    But what great Glory if we were to overcome the world in every way, in every way in which Jesus overcame the world…

    What great Glory would go to the Father if from the earth arose a Praise to His Name from all who belonged to Him on the earth – who called upon His Name out of a Pure Heart – what great Glory and Praise would go to His Name if the earth saw before them living testimonies of the power of God – if they literally saw Jesus in men and women and boys and girls who laid down their lives every second of every day and every second of every night for the Praise of His Glorious Name…

    O God what a difference we would see in this world…

    What a difference we would see in this world…

    Holy Spirit…

    Let it be….

    Let it be…

    Let it be…

    Let it be…

    Let it be…

    Let it be with every fibre of our beings that we lay down our lives before You – who Alone are Worthy of our Praise and our Adoration, Holy Jesus make us a People of Praise – who lay down their lives before You and before Your Throne to inhabit Your Praises to live in Your Presence – to be prostrate before You so that nothing else matters…

    Hallelujah!!!

    Let the Fire Fall…

    Let the Fire Fall…

    Let the Fire Fall…

    Engulf this world with the Fire of Your Glory and let this world be saved…

    Let this world be saved…

    I don’t care anymore what anyone thinks of me…

    Let this world be saved…

    Let it be saved…

    Let me see it in my lifetime…

    Hallelujah!!!

    Let me see it in my lifetime…

    Every creature on the face of this planet worshipping You Jesus – from their hearts from the very depths of their beings, let me see them worshipping You….

    In the Mighty Name of Jesus…

    Let me see them Worshipping You…

    Holy Father…

    Release Your Anointing…
