A Word From Above

I have soooo much I would like to say. But I am going to post the verses that God gave me this morning and if I get a chance to write more--I will.
Father- I pray you open the eyes of our heart so that we can hear Your voice above the call of the world. Make us like your Son , Jesus.

Ezekiel 36: 22-29

"Therefore say to the house of Israel, 'This is what the Sovereign LORD says; It is not for your sake, O house of Israel, that I am going to do these things, but for the sake of my holy name, which you have profaned among the nations where you have gone. I will show the holiness of my great name, which has been profaned among the nations, the name you have profaned among them. Then the nations will know that I am the LORD, declares the Sovereign LORD, when I show myself holy through you before their eyes.
"'For I will take you our of the nation I will gather you from all the countries and bring you back into your own land. I will sprinkle clean water on you, and you will be clean; I will cleanse you from all your impurities and from all your idols. I will give you a new heart and put a new spirit in you; I will remove from you your hear of stone and give you a heart of flesh. And I will put my Spirit in you and move you to follow my decrees and be careful to keep my laws. You will live in the land I gave your forefather; you will be my people, and I will be your God. I will save you from all your uncleanness.

This morning if you need a heart of flesh that is able to follow His decrees and keep His laws--call out to Him while He may be found. In these last days He is looking through out the earth for a people He can put His heart in. A people whom He can show Himself HOLY through so that the world will know --HE IS LORD. He will give you a heart of flesh if you hold your heart of stone up to Him.
He wants to hear you and answer according to His will--but you must act.

Today in My Utmost For His Highest and I quote,"Don't give up because you have been blocked and confused once--go after it again. Burn your bridges behind you, and stand committed to God by an act of your own will. Never change your decisions, but be sure to make your decisions in the light of what you saw and learned on the mountain."



And for those of you praying for Lauree and Robert---- this was given to her through a web site and she asked me to pass it on.


IT IS I

"Be of good cheer: it is I; be not afraid." Mark 6:50

Listen, then, to the voice of Jesus in the storm. It is I who raised the tempest in your soul, and will control it. It is I who sent your affliction, and will be with you in it. It is I who kindled the furnace, and will watch the flames, and bring you through it. It is I who formed your burden, who carved your cross, and who will strengthen you to bear it. It is I who mixed your cup of grief, and will enable you to drink it with meek submission to your Father's will. It is I who took from you worldly substance, who bereft you of your child, of the wife of your bosom, of the husband of your youth, and will be infinitely better to you than husband, wife, or child. It is I who have done it ALL.

I make the clouds my chariot, and clothe myself with the tempest as with a garment. The night hour is my time of coming, and the dark, surging waves are the pavement upon which I walk. Take courage! It is I. Don't be afraid. It is I—your Friend, your Brother, your Savior! I am causing all the circumstances of your life to work together for your good. It is I who permitted the enemy to assail you, the slander to blast you, the unkindness to wound you, the need to press you! Your affliction did not spring out of the ground, but came down from above—a heaven sent blessing disguised as an angel of light clad in a robe of ebony.

I have sent all in love! This sickness is not unto death, but for the glory of God. This bereavement shall not always bow you to the earth, nor drape in changeless gloom your life. It is I who ordered, arranged, and controlled it all! In every stormy wind, in every darksome night, in every lonesome hour, in every rising fear, the voice of Jesus shall be heard, saying, "Be of good cheer: it is I; be not afraid."-------Octavius Winslow


I pray the blood of Christ over all who read this. I pray that being firmly rooted and grounded in Him you would understand the depth of love that He has for you. That you would look neither to the left or the right but that you would continue to walk by faith and not by sight.

You are blessed sister --walk in it!

sharon, i JUST copied ezekiel 36:26 into my verse card book yesterday. oh, does he not prove himself faitful in teaching us what he wants us to learn??

thank you for being faithful to post exactly what he gave you this morning.

i've been thinking about what you've said to me, that we cannot even produce a repentant heart by our own doing. i am asking God to speak to me on this, and waiting with expectation.

Our pastor was talking yesterday about how God doesn't give up on us,and how we are works in progress. He compared it to some large highway reconstruction in our area. Right now it is just a confusing mess and it doesn't seem to change for the better. But...one day we will drive up to that stretch of road and it will be straight, clean, and lovely. That is what we will be like when we are with the Lord, until then, we are not to give up hope when we are all messed up! God does not give up on us. He WILL complete His work. I found that encouraging.
