Hello brothers and sisters and Heartdwellers family.
Jesus had given me personal counsel this month, concerning the storm personally that would be at my home. Boy, did it come.. and I wasn’t obedient to His instructions at all but rather, was in fear and much doubt throughout.
We finally had a bit of breakthrough, and I realized that I just should’ve listen to Jesus and His instructions how to handle things, because a lot of things that looked really bad, weren’t at all what it seemed, and the enemy was just having a ball with thoughts and suggestions passing my mind and making me fear the future again. Then during the Lords Supper readings, He gave me Mark 4:35-41:
Jesus Calms The Storm
35 That day when evening came, he said to his disciples, “Let us go over to the other side.” 36 Leaving the crowd behind, they took him along, just as he was, in the boat. There were also other boats with him. 37 A furious squall came up, and the waves broke over the boat, so that it was nearly swamped. 38 Jesus was in the stern, sleeping on a cushion. The disciples woke him and said to him, “Teacher, don’t you care if we drown?”
39 He got up, rebuked the wind and said to the waves, “Quiet! Be still!” Then the wind died down and it was completely calm.40 He said to his disciples, “Why are you so afraid? Do you still have no faith?” 41 They were terrified and asked each other, “Who is this? Even the wind and the waves obey him!”
And I felt that is exactly what He did, He calmed the storm that was raging and I see clearly now again, I should have just trusted Him.
And even as the sea and the wind obey Him, then He can easily speak to any storm in our lives when it comes and the demons causing it, the curses that may have landed, the assignments that comes with all of it – has to stop suddenly and obey God when He says: ‘It’s enough’. And they do every time – so why do I struggle to obey Him and His instructions and give into fear instead? It was a great reflection for me, so after receiving Him I came before Him.
Jesus what’s on Your heart?
“To do My will and My will alone should be your daily food My beloved one. Indeed I have called the storm for now. Be at peace My dove. How you have been tossed to-and-fro with each passing wind and wave, but if you would have stayed with me below the surface, you would have had great peace, and that is what will get you through the great storms of life. There are many ahead of you.
“Remember My little one, don’t be moved by what you see or hear. I’ve told you once before; so much good is going on beneath the surface of things, so much good. And I am working out everything for your good, that is why I asked you to praise Me in the midst of the storm. It inspires Me with excitement and gives Me great consolation, when souls who are going through the most difficult of trials, stop complaining and rather, praise Me. It lets me know they truly understand My nature and that I am good.
“You have nothing to be worried about concerning this marriage. What I said, and all that I said, I will do in My timing beloved. I told you the roars of Satan will be many, and he won’t stop. But the faster you detach, let go from any outcomes or expectations, truly let go of this curious nature that wants to know and needs to know but rather, entrusting all of that to Me, knowing that nothing escapes Me, no- one can deceive me, and all things will be exposed and brought to the light of truth in My time. Then you can rest when you see something disturbing or feel something is off. Simply say “Jesus I trust You, that nothing escapes You, and if there is anything going on, bring it to the light, that all things may be exposed and healed.” Say that prayer often beloved when you feel you are backed in a corner, or anxiety tries to take over. It declares your great trust in Me and our great trust, that I will always be at your defense.”
Thank you, Jesus thank you so much for Your mercy toward me in my disobedience and self-righteousness. Thank you Lord. What is on Your heart for the flock?
“Obedience to My known will beloved, that is what is on My heart. There are too many of My brides who are aware of what I am asking them to do, but find too many excuses to follow-up and follow through. Many times, you feel your excuses are justified, but do you not think if I ask you to do something My beloved ones, I have made provision for all your justifications as to why you should delay? Because delayed obedience is not obedience at all.
“This is so important My brides, so important that you follow through with what I tell you, and do not delay in doing it. Some come to Me getting permission not to do My known will. My brides, it is for your own good. I see the plans and traps of the enemy set before you to hinder growth and steal your gifts; so in your obedience to Me, you are hidden in Me. No longer you are living, but I living through you, fulfilling the Father’s will on this Earth through you.
“Lessons of obedience start small My beloved brides. Many times, I hear souls say: if Jesus asked Me to do so-and-so I would do it. To make a big decision to move somewhere I am leading you, you can do that; but to forgive your neighbor, or give Me the first half of your day, or to finish a certain project for Me, or to deny yourself a treat, or to not go out when I prefer you stay in prayer and be with Me, you cannot do that – but you expect to be obedient when the big instructions come.
“It doesn’t work that way My beloved ones. It’s in the small things that you can show your faithfulness to Me with each step in obedience, because it’s like a ladder to Heaven and gives you more and more clarity into the destiny that I have called you to. So, you know what I have asked of you for a long time now, will you do it? Will you stop making excuses of every kind and trust Me and do what I have asked? It’s in your obedience to Me that many graces, gifts and blessings come. Your joy will be found complete, because you came to do the will of My Father and not your own. I give you all the grace My beloved brides to be obedient to My perfect will.”
And that was the end of Jesus’ message.
