Oh, I am SO glad His hand is on us! So many things are happening right now! As I read these messages Father has given to us during our days of preparation for traveling we are so refreshed in His presence. He is with us every step we take and He knows our hearts and our needs. Be encouraged dear friends as you read the words spoken to us as we sought Father’s face and listened to His voice preparing for an awesome adventure that we continue to experience.
This morning as I was on the floor, I began worshipping and praising my Lord. What happened in the next few moments is very difficult to put into words. I felt the hand of the Lord upon me as I have never felt before in my life. I felt His hand on my back and I felt His hand on my head. I felt a purging take place like none before. I felt the power of the Holy Spirit within me like never before. All I could do was be still and receive that which the Lord had for me. Much more happened while I was on the floor but words cannot express it. It is so difficult for human words to express what our Lord does. But there are some things that we are not to tell. We are to simply just receive and cherish these things in our heart. How do you describe the awesomeness of God? But yet when the power of the Holy Spirit comes in a way like it did this morning, there is no mistaking the source of that power. I pray You, Lord, for this day to be spent with You. For You are Lord.
You have experienced a portion of My rest but there is much more you have not experienced. There is much more.
We have waited for many months to see the manifestation of the promises of God. During that time we have grown in our relationship with the Lord and in our ability to choose to trust Him and hear His voice. As we await the arrival of our motor home, one thing that became so apparent to me is that our trust in God did not depend on whether we received the motor home and finances but our trust in God totally depended on who HE IS. If I never receive the things, HE IS STILL GOD.
God’s Word to explain the travail
November 3, 1999
We have been carrying and nurturing this vision for many months. We have protected the vision by our faith and belief in the Most High God. We have come across unbelievers, skeptics and scoffers. But we have protected the vision at all cost. It has grown beyond our expectations when we began. Today is the day of delivery. The vision is no longer a vision, it is reality. The joy of seeing the newborn is here.
You have been faithful My children. You have grown mightily. Your day of delivery is here. That is the travail that Charley went through this morning. Charley was the one who went through it because he is the one that is the spiritual leader. It was his responsibility to go through the travail. The day of delivery is here. I have chosen this day and just as with a newborn all you have to do is be willing to receive that which I have for you. As I told you this morning, Karen, all that I have for you will be greater than your greatest, fondest dreams. Just receive. Delivery day is here. Just as today is the first day of the rest of your lives, today the dreams come forth.
Isaiah 66:9 Shall I bring to the time of birth, and not cause delivery? says the Lord. Shall I who cause delivery shut up the womb? says your God.
