In Your Deepest Need

There is One who will never forget you, One who always sees your heart. He sees your desperation for all to be made right. He sees you when no one else seems to care for you as deeply. He sees your deepest needs and the neglect you feel day after day.

He sees everything and He never leaves. He knows you better than anyone. He fulfills your needs better than any ever could. He prays for you more than any do. He loves you better than any ever will. He sees your pain and the cry of your heart to be held, ministered to, healed and comforted. Continue reading

Comfort in the Trials

If you are experiencing difficulties or challenges, know God sees you. Know His heart is for you. He answers when you cry out to Him. Don’t be afraid to call upon Him in your time of need.

The Lord is able to lead us by His Spirit far better than any human being. He is patient with us. He loves when we look to Him. He delights when we seek His way for our lives and in all situations.

“For we do not have a High Priest who cannot sympathize with our weaknesses, but was in all points tempted as we are, yet without sin. Let us therefore come boldly to the throne of grace, that we may obtain mercy and find grace to help in time of need.”
(Hebrews 4:15‭-‬16 NKJV)

Pour out your heart to Him. He can handle it. He wants to hold you close, releasing comfort and wisdom to you. He longs to speak to you from His Word. It is here where you will find His words of Spirit and life (John 6:63).

Standing Firm in the Waiting

God has made many beautiful promises to our sweet house of prayer and church. However, for a while now, things in the natural have looked very different from what He has said will come to pass.

Regardless of what it looks like, we continue to press into His heart and stand firm because we know He is the One who is faithful and true.

My own longing has been for His presence to come in a greater way, with the result being that hearts are transformed. I also desire to disciple others in worship and the prophetic. So for now we stand awaiting God to come through; without Him, we cannot go far.

In times when the promises seem impossible, we have to believe that our God will come through. We have to keep standing even in the waiting, even when it seems our Isaac is on the altar about to be taken from us again.

Our Lord, who is the Resurrection and the Life, has great plans for us all and He will not allow them to be dashed to nothing.

For our group, I know that the Lord delights in us as we seek His face and make room for His Spirit to move. He makes that clear every week as His presence touches our hearts.

Sometimes it feels so small, and we wonder when more will arise to build God’s Kingdom with us. Nonetheless, I would never trade the sweet worship times the Lord brings us for anything.

I’m not sure why He has tarried so long as we desperately need breakthrough in many areas of need. Perhaps it is because He is working a greater work in us–after all, it is God and His making us into the image of Christ that is most important.

The main thing is His heart and connecting ours with His; the rest is by His leading and our obedience when and as He does lead.
