The Deep Things…

The deep things of the heart…

I feel to blog on this today…

There are deep things of the heart – so deep that we don’t even dare to mention them even to ourselves – they have a sort of mystique or fear about them – a false sort of reverence which we hold them in which makes us “hushed” as we think about them…

These are the idols of our heart…

They need to be exposed and they need to be dislodged…

These are the things which hold us back from “taking” our destiny in God – they are…

We don’t even realise how we “shrink back” from what God is really calling us to achieve…

We blame God and say our lives are boring and without meaning and we’re wandering aimlessly around not going anywhere or getting anywhere – no progress – and yet we fail to realise that these deep things – the deep things of the heart – are the reason that this is happening – God wants to deal with these deep things – the deep things of the heart…

As you’ve read so far I believe the Lord has told me that you’ll know what I’m talking about – it will be different things for different people – no two people are exactly the same or have exactly the same struggles – this is the way it is – God has made us each uniquely – we are each precious to Him and He has a plan – a perfect plan – for our lives – if we are willing to yield them to Him…

This is the “catch” – are we willing to yield them to Him?

I am talking to those who don’t yet know Him but I am also talking to those who already know Him – are we willing to yield these deep things – deep things of the heart – to Him?

Are we?

For if we aren’t we are limiting ourselves and our fulfilment in God…

We are limiting Him and thus we are limiting others for He has a plan for us to impact others – whom He places us in contact with – with our love for Him…

If we don’t Love Him enough to let Him be the Surgeon in our lives – then we have limited Him and we will die of our wounds…

They will become infected, “puss out” and eventually kill us…

Remove us from this earth…

There is no other Surgeon on this earth like our Surgeon – He is Perfect and His Scalpel is true…

He never makes a mistake – His surgery might hurt but it is worthwhile – it is not worth hiding from Him – He will find us and He will offer us His Surgery – He will not force it on us – He will give us the choice…

Are we willing to choose Him?

His operation in our lives?

It might be painful – most likely it will be – it won’t be pleasant but afterward there will be great joy – great rejoicing and great freedom – are we willing for this?

Are we willing?

The Lord has been going to the heart with me – He has been “going after” the deep things in my heart – I’m sure there are still some left – but He has been “going after” them and what He has shown me is that He is always willing for me to be honest with Him…

He will never chastise me for being honest – never…

In my honesty He shows me His tenderness and His Gentleness and His Patience…

His Tenderness..

Beautiful…

“You thought I was a hard man”…

That speaks volumes…

We can have that attitude towards God…

Thinking Him a hard man…

“Gotta watch out what you say to God”…

No you don’t…

Just be honest with Him and He will woo you in…

He will – He’s done this with me…

Wooed me in – it doesn’t surprise Him when we tell Him our “dark secrets” – He knows them all anyway – He can handle it – but what He can’t handle is us lying to Him or lying in His Presence – He doesn’t like this – at all (I feel His displeasure towards lying as I type this) – He hates lying…

He wants us to “face up” and “come clean” before Him…

Before we “come clean” before anyone else He calls us to “come clean” before we must have first “come clean” before Him – admitted to Him our deep “fantasies” and “longings” and “desires” and all other things which we keep “bottled down there” somewhere in the deep recesses of our hearts…

We are a triune being – spirit, soul and body and these things dwell in the depth of our hearts – our souls – not our righteous souls if we know the Lord – but in what used to be us before we died and our lives were hidden with Christ in God – the residual of what we used to be – “sin which dwells in me”…

These things reside down there and they have demonic support – that’s where the mystique or “reverence” towards them come from – we know if we “upset that apple cart” there will be repercussions and because we’re afraid of those these issues stay “off the radar” in our subconscious mind until the Surgeon arrives to operate…

Once He arrives we can’t get rid of facing these realities – He brings circumstances to bear – He brings His word to bear – He brings our brothers and sisters in the Lord to bear – we just can’t escape these realities but if we resist Him when He comes – when He comes to “sort out” these realities then we will miss His will for our lives…

How do we not resist Him?

We yield…

We admit that we can’t do anything but resist Him…

We admit defeat…

We hold up our “white flag”…

And we don’t do this “case by case” – once we’re aware of this we do it “hollis bollis” – all at once – we commit it all to the Lord like Paul did, “I know that He is able to keep that which I’ve committed unto Him against that day” – and we let Him “go to it” – a bit like a patient signing off before an operation giving the doctor permission to do whatever He needs to do – you’re or we’re signing away our lives…

That’s what we need to do – then when we hear all kinds of insanities coming out of us – or profanities – or whatever – we see that He is at work removing these deep, murky, “foundational” lies and structures from our lives so we can see Him and breathe His clean air of freedom…

For His air is clean and it is free – His oxygen – His oxygen mask is clean and free and we’re “out” for the operation so to speak – yes it might still hurt – but comparatively we’re “out” for the operation and He takes over…

Praise You Jesus…

You never cease to amaze me – and I’m only just beginning in my knowledge of You…

Love You…

Love to all who read,

Andrew

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
