The Enduring Journey: Humility and Planting Seeds

(Karen speaking)                                                                                                                                              Over the years I have so enjoyed rereading the messages the Lord has given to us! Not very often do we each get a message on the same day but what I share today is such a time.  Please be encouraged and blessed as you read Father's words to us. At this time in our ministry His messages strengthened and sustained us as we followed His plans and purpose for us and for CKM .

Good morning, My son.  The things that you are asking for are noble and good.  To ask Me for a humble spirit in everything that you do is a good thing and you will receive it and continue to walk in it.  You need to be ready to receive all that I have told you that you will receive.  You have been prepared and now as you saw in the spirit this morning, the floodgates are open.  The benefactors are responding to My instructions to them and the pace is picking up.  I love you so much, My son.  You are walking in obedience.  All that I have told you is coming to you and much more than you can imagine.  Don’t be concerned.  I am walking with you and will not leave you.  Just keep looking to Me and listening to Me for I am your God.  There is none other for I AM that I AM.  We will walk together along this pathway.

Yes, Lord, Yes, to Your will and to Your way.  I said Yes, Lord, Yes, I will trust You and obey.  When Your Spirit speaks to me with my whole heart I’ll agree and forever I’ll say, Yes, Lord, Yes.  Father, thank You for Your word to us this morning.

(Father speaking)
 My child, you are now walking in what some will call total and complete obedience.  What you are learning is to seek Me first and then act on My words to you and My word in you.  As you spent time with Matt and Theresa this weekend.  It was not so much the words that you spoke that made a difference but the love you took into that home that was My love.  You planted the seeds of love, joy, peace, devotion not only to Me but to each other.  You planted seeds of love into all of the children.  The youngest needed to see and experience the love that you brought.  Those seeds given will mature and grow the character of My son in their lives.  The whole family is anointed by Me for ministry.  Theresa needed to see what true love and devotion as a husband and wife look like.  She has been forgiven from her past sins and disobedience but she continues to walk in self-defeat in some areas.  I showed her this weekend how much I love her and have a wonderful plan for her in My ministry and in My work.  She is very quick to be defeated and needed to see how to stand on the truth she knows and on the authority she has in Me.  She sees in the Spirit and I reveal many things to her but she is learning quickly how to use the gifts I give her daily.  Matt I have anointed to lead people into worship.  When he realizes the authority he has in the realm of worship over the enemy, he will become so bold in Me and will stand strong on the Word.  You are seeing a glimpse of the seeds you are planting under My direction.  As you have shared this morning, the world looks at you with a skeptical eye because they do not know the plans I have for you.  They do not understand the obedience and boldness with which you walk right now and there is so much more that I want to show you and give you.  Keep placing all of your cares in My hands.  Keep believing that My resources are there for you.  Keep speaking the confidence that you have in Me and My Word.  The impact you have in this world will not be measured by man’s gauge but by My gauge.  Mine is eternal and theirs is temporary.  They see only in the natural and I am looking at the eternal significance that you are having by sharing My love and joy with others.  Keep seeking Me for every decision that you need to make and keep seeking Me for the choices you need to make.  Keep seeking Me for the needs in your life and keep seeking Me for the blessings that I have for you.  You are learning that I desire to bless My children so much more than they receive because they do not ask or believe.  Sometimes I want to pour and pour and the vessel will not receive because it is not open to receive.  Stay open to receive and I will pour into your life not for you just to sit and enjoy but for you to be that channel that I desire for the blessings to flow.  I love you both very much and it is My desire to be honored and glorified through your life.  Stay focused on Me in every aspect of your life and I am with you always even to the end of the age which is coming soon.  It is imperative that we keep walking together forward to the end of this time when My son will return.  Keep telling the good news that Jesus is Lord and that He will return for His children. 

Luke 8:11, 15  “Now the parable is this: The seed is the word of God.”  “But the ones that fell on the good ground are those who, having heard the word with a noble and good heart, keep it and bear fruit with patience.”  (1)
