May the Lord impart peace and perseverance to us, dear Heartdwellers.
Today when I came into prayer - actually I've been in prayer all day. I was repenting - spending a lot of time repenting. The Lord is opening my eyes to more and more things in my heart and mind that just are not right. They do separate us from God.
And so, I spent quite a bit of time looking at that and asking for His forgiveness. Right after communion, I was given a beautiful gift by the Father, Who came and cleansed me, just with a wave of His hand. I can't even remember what He did, all I knew is that, standing before me He just blew all the sin and all the gunk and all the seeds away. And I was so very grateful!
He had done something like that for me just a few days ago - and I lost it! So, this time I was praying, "Please, Lord. Don't let me lose this!"
So, I told the Lord. I said, 'Please - send me extra help and grace. I am so afraid of myself.'
"And herein is where most fail. They get delivered and forgiven and feel so good they launch into work that begins to take time away from prayer and repentance. I am being especially diligent to remind you of that priority and you spoke well when you said ministry is but the tip of the iceberg. I spent 30 years preparing for three years of ministry. That should tell you something."
It speaks volumes, Lord.
"When they grieve over their misdeeds, I draw closer and garland them with more graces, pulling them from the pits they have dug for themselves."
Speaking of pits, Lord - was any of that self-pity?
Lord, what do I have to look out for the most?Jesus answered, "Judgement, Irritation, Impatience, Complaining as the Israelites did. Ungratefulness for all you've been given. Those are your major faults. Others from time to time can include Envy, Avarice and Greed, Self-will and Pride. These are the things you are fighting in yourself, Clare. These are the things that would destroy you if you encouraged them.
"But if you stand guard over yourself and ruthlessly confront the evil that enters your mind, be it from your heart or outside sources. If you ruthlessly confront and put these things down, repenting immediately, there is some hope you can hold onto this cleansing this time. Go slower, My Love, go slower and pay very careful attention to what disturbs your peace. Therein is the tip-off. When peace is disturbed, Satan's afoot.
"We are not fighting against flesh and blood only, but a very real and calculating enemy who sets up circumstances to set you off."
Oh yeah, last night was a classic, I'll tell you. Just one thing after another.
And here the Lord mentions some of those things.
Like your keys...? Your glasses...?
"Your recourse? When these things start to happen, rejoice that you have something to offer Me. Wrap them in the joy of thanksgiving, Clare - that you have yet another tiny wedding present to offer Me. You started to do that and it will deliver you from malice and rancor. Then the demons will be destroying their own kingdoms of darkness with their own hands, because what was meant for evil you turned to good. This you can do and it will have an effect."
Thank you, Lord. I so appreciate this instruction. Jesus, You know how heavy my heart is about Ezekiel's pain.
"Evil is being spoken over this country 24/7 by the bought and paid for media."
Isn't that the same tactic the Nazi's used, in WWII?
"All the accusations of wife abuse is nothing more than a smoke screen deterrent to make his already unpopular personality even less popular. As you have said to yourself, 'He who is without sin, let them cast the first stone.' What goes on behind the scenes in these politicians lives is just as unkind and abusive. What is different is that it is more detectable in this man. Clare, you know from years of counseling, this is very common in marriages. Not right - but common.
"I am calling on all my intercessors now to stand in the gap for this man and hold your ground which has been won at a very high cost. Hang in there - this, too, will pass. The first three months of this administration will be the most difficult. But soon after, when more corruption and betrayal by those who were entrusted with this country's welfare, will be exposed, then the shoe will be on the other foot. Until then, rough going. Stand your ground, intercessors. Don't give in to false reports or ruses to get you off the important track.
"Just like in the election, when all were saying that his opponent would win, things will turn around and Truth will triumph. Right now, it is popular to side with the naysayers, but a time will come when that changes.
"So, hold your ground, My People. You have made the right choice and you will see the fruit of his good judgment in your nation. That's really all you need to know, My love."
Thank you, Lord.
