Letting go…

Why do we hold on?

Because we don’t know any better…

I had an amazing experience with the Lord this morning as I woke up early and was doing the dishes and talking to the Lord about a situation where I was having to let go…

All sort of profanities were coming out of me from my flesh and I let them all out…

I didn’t resist them…

And then I heard the Voice of the Lord – quiet and clear – and then I experienced His Peace – like nothing I have ever experienced before – completing ‘funnelling’ me in His Presence…

I needed that…

I had my Annual Performance Review at work today and I needed that peace as I prepared for that – I was at rest…

I’ve been going through something with a close friend – a very close friend – and I’ve had to let her go…

I love her – I really do – but I’ve had to let her go…

Sometimes the only way for people to see things is to let them go and let the Lord show them…

Maybe she feels the same way about me…

It’s so free to let the Lord show us what His truth is…

Whenever we try and achieve this for someone else it fails…

Our control…

It is so freeing to see our flesh and it’s demands…

Wanting such and such…

‘If only they would see such and such’…

And yet it is the Lord who shows people His will…

And as I stood in our kitchen this morning receiving the Lord’s peace I saw that He – I saw in my heart (not just knew in my head) – is in complete control and the safety and protection of that is that if it’s His will He’ll make it happen…

Having no direct contact or not being able to ‘touch’ another human being is the best thing in the world – no, no joke, it really is… šŸ™‚

If something is ‘of God’ then He will make it happen…

It doesn’t matter how many times we ‘let it go’ – He will bring it back…

And when there is no control in us ‘making it happen’ or ‘wanting it to happen’ – just surrender – then we experience His Peace and know that He is working to bring it to pass…

When one member suffers they all suffer as the scripture has said…

I have been offering my friend my support but my greatest support is unspoken – I see that now – carrying her burdens and so fulfilling the law of Christ – without having to have any direct contact with her at all…

“I will fulfil all your needs Andrew – your need for fellowship, your need for intimacy within marriage, your needs to be received by your children and by those who you are responsible for in Me”, declares the Lord, “all your needs will be met in Me – you have let go – you have let go of what is most precious to you – you have let go of fellowship and you have let go of sexual intimacy – I know your heart and I know that you have let go – and so I now – in the days to come – give these things back to you – in their place and within marriage accordingly”, declares the Lord, “You have let go and so I will now return to you what you have surrendered and what you let go – your control over making these things happen – and I will now make these things happen for you as you wait in My Presence – that protective ‘funnel’ of My Presence which you experienced this morning and again in the shower – that Presence – all around you where you didn’t need to know anything but just that I was there”…

“I am here Andrew and I am speaking to you – believe what I have told you – don’t believe what others tell you – unless I give you a witness of My Spirit that what they are telling you is true”…

“Understand what I say – I will give you wisdom – you are right now receiving of My wisdom – I am your God – believe no one but Me”…

“My Peace is all over you – you are engulfed in My Peace because you trust in Me – not in being right or wrong but that you trust in Me and want My will in all things – you are free – enjoy your freedom”…

“I love you”…

Jesus…

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
