Jeremiah 33:3 (AMP)
Call to Me and I will answer you and show you great and mighty things, fenced in and hidden, which you do not know (do not distinguish and recognize, have knowledge of and understand).
My summer project is to go through the Bible study questions in Beckoned by the King and write posts on my answers. I hope you will join me and allow the Lord to show you a side of His heart and your own not previously seen. We look through a glass darkly amen?
We are Beckoned by the King. Can you hear Him? is the subtitle of the Bible study questions. Questions designed to cause us to press in to His heart, listen until we hear Him speak.
I heard Him speak as I answered the question “What do you think would be the benefits of living your life according to God’s Word?”
“You will be focused Child, focused on being single minded as you learn to flow in the Spirit and live in the Spirit. You are going to become aware of the modes of your flesh and why you act/react the way you have in certain situations.
You are ready. You have waited long. Waited with tears and aching heart, wanting to understand why and where the root of rejection came from.
I know you thought it was your inability to hear until you got your hearing aids, but truth is Child, the root is a result of your hearing but not understanding who was speaking.
You were walking home from school one rainy day in late November. You were wearing your favorite blue jacket. I know! You loved that jacket because it gave you a feeling of summers never ending. Your ‘ways’ had not automatically switched to ‘My Way’ when you were born again. I knew you were still rebellious but I also knew you wanted to tell the world about Me. You hardly even knew Me, but you were different and you knew I had done an amazing work in your heart. You just didn’t understand because you were My brand new baby. I loved you then and I love you now, even as I have faithfully loved you through all the years you saw through the glass darkly.
That day, the day I reveal to you now, the enemy of your soul spoke a lie into your heart. His lie seed was planted in your heart and the soil of your heart received it. For years it has been hidden and fenced in and you did not even know what is was. Now I will show you.
The enemy of your soul lied to you when he planted the idea in your head that your Mother didn’t love you as much as your sisters because she had already bought them winter coats. It was a skillfully aimed thought, neatly placed into your mind. Unwittingly you believed it. You believed it because you were still rebellious.
Today your heart is fully turned toward Me. Today, all thought of rebellion has long since gone. You know you were loved and I know your heart aches at the realization of not embracing the love of your Mother, a relationship forever ended here on earth. She carried you deep in her heart, she loved you fiercely, wanting to protect you from feeling rejected but not understanding why you would. She would phone you on your hard days. The anniversary date of your abortion. Remember? She would call you and tell you how proud she was of you. How much joy she had in seeing what you had done with your life because of your lifelong commitment to be faithful to Me.
The little blue jacket representing rejection has been replaced with a cloak of scarlet and purple. You are washed in the Blood, you are part of a Royal Nation. You are one with Me and you are one with others in the Body of Christ. You have been accepted in the Beloved, My banner over you is Love.
The wind of time has nestled you close to My heart, listening, hearing My heartbeat of love.
You are in My embrace as I lead you in the dance. I am the Wind in your sails blowing you home without spot or wrinkle.
You are a woman of substance. Substance in your spirit fed by your relationship with Me. Substance, like hot lava flowing out and touching and changing the landscape of broken hearts and lives. Your faith has substance I am pleased.’
You are Beckoned by the King
With love and joy in our journey,
