Hello family, brothers and sisters and Heartdwellers. This is a short, sweet message from Jesus to really encourage us all in our faith.
I have been in a place of uncertainty for sure not really sure the next step but simply doing what is set before me to do and what I have finished yet. It has felt like a dark night in my soul. I feel very empty of thought or direction and I know it’s all the Lords doing. A cross of fatigue is also upon all of us here – just feeling so tired, heavy and sleepy as if we don’t get enough rest. Father Derrick and Sister Ruth have been feeling it too. As we are going through the motions but attempting to keep our heart fixed on Jesus.
I pulled Rhemas and they were so encouraging. The first one read:
“Your life will become brighter than the noon day and darkness will become like morning”
The second said: “Do not let your hearts be troubled, and do not be afraid-you will have peace, quietness and confidence from now on.”
Wow thank you Lord The third said: “When the night comes, what do we do?
Jesus responded, “Watch the stars”
“But if it be a cloudy night, what to do we do?
Response, “Enjoy the rain”.
I felt Jesus was encouraging me to continue to have faith and actually enjoy this time of dark night, trusting in all that He is doing and being faithful, despite my lack of feeling.
I came before Him this morning, Jesus what’s on Your heart?
“It may seem like you are in limbo, but continue to be faithful to the inspirations I have put in your heart little one, as you wait on Me to makes things clearer for you. Indeed, your life will become brighter than the noon day and darkness will become like morning. That is why I want you and all My brides in a place of great thanksgiving and thankfulness. Rather than murmuring and complaining”...
Interestingly enough, a brother had just posted a Rhema message on our Heartdwellers Africa page. He received it this morning, it was one of Mother Clare’s earlier messages and the title was, “Lost in the woods, Seeds of Bitterness, The Power of Complaining”. And If I could be honest, I was guilty of this. I found myself murmuring in my heart here and there about small things. No more than the usually murmuring that I always do, but it seemed this time the Lord wasn’t allowing me to get away with it at all and didn’t want me to complain not one bit about anything.
I had got the Rhema ‘Sin of Ingratitude’ about two days ago and was sick at heart because of it. I had really made an effort to thank the Lord because I was seeing so much good change that I had dreamed of but at the same time, complaining here and there about other things and didn’t realize how that hurt Jesus.
The card said: Repent of Ingratitude.
I can do nothing else, but cry and ask for pardon. My heart is a nest of ingratitude, my thoughts are about everything except you. My words are harsh, disdainful, annoyed and hardly charitable. You lower yourself and I lift myself up. You give to me and I except and feel entitled to your gift rather than grateful for them. I am I kind, generous? Do I forgive and forget? I am a cesspool of misery Lord, forgive me from this instant. My life shall consist in imitating you
Jesus continued, “You do not see as I see and you have no idea what is just around the bend for many of you My faithful brides. Rejoice in praise for every trial and bring to remembrance My faithfulness and My delivering power in your lives. It is always good to remember. David did that often to encourage himself. He meditated upon My goodness and contemplated often the many battles I delivered him from, that is why he was a man after My own heart. He had had seen My mercy in his life over and over again and that became the source of his strength. He knew Me intimately because of what we had gone through together and the faith he put in Me was never disappointed and that is why when all the soldiers of Israel quaked in their boots at Goliath, David was undeterred and unmoved by this taunting enemy that was 10 times larger his size.”
1 Samuel 17 Now the Israelites had been saying, “Do you see how this man keeps coming out? He comes out to defy Israel. The king will give great wealth to the man who kills him. He will also give him his daughter in marriage and will exempt his family from taxes in Israel.”
26 David asked the men standing near him, “What will be done for the man who kills this Philistine and removes this disgrace from Israel? Who is this uncircumcised Philistine that he should defy the armies of the living God?”
27 They repeated to him what they had been saying and told him, “This is what will be done for the man who kills him.David said to Saul, “Let no one lose heart on account of this Philistine; your servant will go and fight him.”
33 Saul replied, “You are not able to go out against this Philistine and fight him; you are only a young man, and he has been a warrior from his youth.”
34 But David said to Saul, “Your servant has been keeping his father’s sheep. When a lion or a bear came and carried off a sheep from the flock, 35 I went after it, struck it and rescued the sheep from its mouth. When it turned on me, I seized it by its hair, struck it and killed it. 36 Your servant has killed both the lion and the bear; this uncircumcised Philistine will be like one of them, because he has defied the armies of the living God. 37 The Lord who rescued me from the paw of the lion and the paw of the bear will rescue me from the hand of this Philistine.”
“Rather, he knew the magnificent and all powerful God he served and had seen what I could do. He remembered what I had done and so his faith was much larger than that giant and because of it, that Philistine giant Goliath came down. Awaken the new faith within you My brides and trust Me. There are the giants of this generation taunting the armies of God in your land and I will use you My brides, to bring these giants down.”
And that was the end of Jesus message.
