"May the Lord direct your hearts into God's love and Christ's perseverance." 2Thess.3:5

    My heart is kneeling
by D'vorah Driskell

My faith has been revived in the Precious Blood of the Lamb this week, after all is IT PASS-OVER. Leaving old behind, stepping forward into HIS NEW. As you may have noted, I am FULL! :-D! I believe THAT in our FATHER's APPOINTED TIMES, there is plentiful MERCY, FRESHNESS OF HIS LOVE, JOYfilled presence, FRESH OIL, REVELATION OF OUR KING, even as we behold HIM again and again. If we would just fix our gaze UPON HIM, how much we would be changed by HIS BEAUTY! HOW BRILLIANT and BEAUTIFUL is OUR CREATOR FATHER! My heart is filled with GLORIOUS TESTIMONY of JESUS, bursting all around! LIKE NEW LIFE! Freedom to even receive resurrection life, thru the atonement of JESUS. Even in darkness, Jesus has promised us His light. "Those who follow Me will not walk in darkness but have the LIGHT THAT GIVES LIFE!" WHEW! I humbly submit this to you. This is a recent happening:

On the way to Dance class tonight, I saw a beautiful prism in the sky as the sun began to set. It was on the "tail" of what looked like a WING or bird in flight. The PRISM was green, yellow, red, VIBRANT! THIS SIGHT of COLOR AND LIGHT was heading into the SUN setting, "like diving in!" whew! Then came the beginning of a glorious sunset; after awhile, this looked like a swirl of fire, spinning LIGHT upward, spreading LIGHT: "like a flame being fanned" by unseen BREATH. (Like His flame of love burning in His bride!) It was really quite astonishing, and seemed to grip my heart...more than I can say.

As I am typing this to you, what really stands out NOW is the BIGGER PICTURE of the WING in flight diving into THE SUN! Like drawn to flame! I sense Father desiring to show us the bigger picture of His eternal plan of redemption. How the SON OF RIGHTEOUSNESS IS ARISING WITH healing in HIS WINGS, (from Mal. 4:2) even as we return to HIM, our FIRST LOVE. "They that dwell under His shadow shall return..." Hos. 14:7. THE FATHER IS DRAWING US BY HIS SPIRIT into The Shadow of Almighty: (Psalm 91) the Ark of His Presence. "Draw us Lord, and we will run after You." from Song of Songs. He is hovering, watching over our days, lives, loved ones, our precious tears - poured out like intercession drink offerings before HIM. He is watching HIS WORD LIKE THE GOOD SHEPHERD-Psalm 23. "As the mountains are round about Jerusalem, so the Lord is round about His pp. from this time forth and forever." Ps. 125:2.

How very necessary even pruning is to bearing eternal fruit! Even in pruning, the Master Vinedresser is in His Vineyard! How He Loves His VINEYARD. So precious are the clusters that bring the New Wine, into a NEW WINESKIN. How excellent are His WORKS! "Lift the veil Lord, Let us see YOU, YOUR HANDIWORK ALL AROUND US!" As I bride lifts her veil to behold her Bridegroom, so is our King 'lifting the veil' so that we may truly BEHOLD HIM! II Cor. 3:18. I believe His river of life is beginning to flow. (Rev. 22:1-2). I believe those of us who have wept deep, will joy deeper! (Ps. 126:5-6) HOW FAITHFUL TO US IS OUR FATHER GOD TO HIS Covenant/WORD! ALL because of the LAMB OF GOD; Teaching us HIS BRIDE to abide/trust/rest...(Psalm 91 & John 15), that we may become a habitation of His Glory. All of this seemed to be screaming at me from the sky, heavens, not hidden, but in PLAIN VIEW. Even this was significant. Most of all LOVE HIMSELF, swirling His lovelight inside of ME as I saw this, capturing my gaze, again (because I can be so distracted) so that I could receive more wonder and joy OVER HIS Handiwork. Even His HANDIWORK inside of you and me. WHEW. So Holy, Holy, Holy. Master Potter, I surrender to the process of transformation. I thank You for Your covenant love and faithfulness!

"Blessed be the FATHER, even the God of our Lord Jesus Christ, The Father of all mercy and the GOD OF ALL COMFORT." II Cor. 1:3. David said in Ps. 119:50 "This is my comfort and consolation in my affliction: that your word has revived me and given me life." So true. God's word is ALIVE. Draw us Precious Holy Spirit to TRUST more DEEPLY this HOLY, LOVING FATHER who gave HIS ONLY SON, shedding His innocent blood, to take away our sins, not only ours but the whole world. Thank you for your words to Heal the broken hearted, strengthen the weary in Your presence, and even raise dead to LIFE! What GLORIOUS GOOD NEWS! What glorious triumph for the saints! I believe this is a time to be restored, returning to our FIRST LOVE, and receiving not only HIS REDEMPTION, but BELIEVING HIS WORDS OF LIFE TO US. BLESSED hope for us, even fulness of every promise we have not yet seen, but believe! May the promises of His word come to us suddenly! MAY FREEDOM REIGN over the precious lives our JESUS came to give HIS LIFE FOR. "I will worship toward your holy temple, and praise your name for your lovingkindness, truth,and faithfulness; for you have exalted above all else your name, your word, and you have magnified your word above your name. Though I walk in the midst of trouble, YOU will revive me, you will stretch forth your mighty hand against the wrath of my enemies, and your right hand will save me. (Ps. 23:3,4). THE LORD will perfect that which concerns me (us); Your mercy and lovingkindness oh Lord endures forever..." Psalm 138:2,7-8 amp.

When you're hurting...

"When you are hurting, and you think about God's greatness, what a change it makes in your perspective when you remember this:

The great 'I AM' cares personally and deeply for you. He exists beyond the stars, yet He knows every hair that falls from your head and every tear that drops from your eyes. When you grieve, he is grieving with you.

When you are confused, He doesn't laugh at your confusion. He is with you right there, arms around you, ready to take you, if need be carry you, safely through the fog. He is Yaweh, the God who makes and keeps His covenants and promises."
[Steve Farrar - Get in the Ark]
