The Stirring - Cal Pierce
Everywhere we have been this year, we see a stirring happening in God’s people. Whether we are in South America, Europe, Asia or North America, there is an expectancy that something huge is about to be released. This expectancy has invaded us here at the International Offices of Healing Rooms Ministries. We are pressing into what God wants us to do.
We feel that the Third Great Awakening is beginning to happen. Jesus is awakening His bride so she will bring His Kingdom message and work into every nation according to Matthew 24, verse 14. We are in the Isaiah 60 season as darkness is covering the earth and deep darkness the people. He is stirring us to know that our light has come and it’s time to arise and shine, then His glory will fall upon us. We will have such Kingdom brightness that Kings and governments will come to our light. We will truly become the light to the world. They will come to us because we will have the only answer to man’s problems. This awakening will bring in the final harvest as God heals our land.
The stirring is a call from God to His Bride, to awaken from her sleep and humble herself and pray and seek His face, then she will begin to fulfill 2 Chronicles 7:14,
God promises to heal our land if we do our part and humble ourselves, pray and seek His face. He will heal our land by releasing the greatest revival the world has ever seen. The Kingdom will be released with healings, miracles, signs and wonders to take the final harvest. Then the end will come! Are you ready?

Granuloma Annulare, Folliculitis and Neuralgia healed
On August 2,2018 I visited the Spokane Healing Rooms. The purpose for my visit was to get prayer for my son, Humoody. Last year was rocky and I wanted for someone to agree with in prayer for this coming school year. Humoody is in 10th grade at Snohomish High. Suni Terrorists shot him in the face when he was 2 years old. We got him from Iraq when he was 3 years old. There was an ad in the Herald newspaper in December of 2006 for a family to host a child from Iraq who needed medical care. We were the only ones that offered to host him. We know that he was given to us so that he could know Jesus. Humoody was blinded by the gunshot, he has one eye missing and the other is a Prosthetic. He could not breath through his nose and his face was disfigured. After it was confirmed that Humoody would not get his eyesight back, we asked his family in Iraq if we could keep him. We knew he would have no life in Iraq, he would be shunned, mocked, and he would not be able to go to school or marry. He is very smart and personable. Miraculously, his family told us that we could keep him. Muslims never give their children away, especially to Christians.
Because of the trauma Humoody had from being shot and numerous surgeries, he developed PTSD. We were told that during puberty his PTSD might flare up. It did, and our family was devastated. In 9th grade the only thing that brought him joy was playing football for school, wrestling for school, and writing music. Yes, he is totally blind and he does everything that his peers do. Over the last year, I wrote to God regularly and he would speak to me regularly. God is so merciful, and throughout last year God was faithful to me. I claimed that Humoody would start to get better on April 15th. After that date I saw progress, and I knew he was on the road to recovery. As 10th grade was approaching, I decided to release Humoody to God. I should have done it in the beginning, but I had to be in control. After I gave Humoody to God, Humoody got better and better.
When I entered the Healing Rooms on August 2nd, I was ushered into a room were a man and woman were waiting for me. I explained to them what the last year had been like, and that I needed prayer for my son to have a great school year. The man talked to me first and he gave me some words of wisdom that really resonated with my heart. He knew that giving Humoody to God was essential.
As I was ready to leave, the sweet woman asked me if she could pray for my health. I did not tell her the aliments I had. I had Granuloma annulare for 10 years, bumps on my arms and fingers that were painful and not very pretty. I also had Folliculitis, a skin issue that gave me sores all over my scalp. In May, I had an MRI because my shoulder had torn cartilage that was very painful. I was supposed to have surgery to mend my cartilage. I also had Neuralgia, shooting nerve pain to my fingers. I was also supposed to have surgery on the nerves.
On my way home to Snohomish, I realized that I was not having any pain. The next day I discovered that all my bumps on my arms and hands were gone! And all of the sores on my scalp were gone, too! I am still free of all my ailments.
Today Humoody is doing well in school, and all his depression is gone. He is having a great school year! God has a purpose and a plan for Humoody to spread the gospel of Jesus Christ. The Lord baptized Humoody in the Holy Spirit when he was 10.
I would like to thank everyone who volunteers at the Healing Rooms. The Holy Spirit is working miracles.

A Vision of the Church - Larry Pullom
During worship at Blaze, I had a vision in which I saw a lady lying on the floor. I saw two hands come from above and touch her on the chest. The hands were blue and as I looked closer, I could see that there were lightning bolts penetrating her body. After the hands had touched her, she sat up and began dusting off a black dust. The stench from the dust was that of sulfur.
I asked the Lord who the lady was and what was being dusted off of her. He told me the lady was the church and what she was dusting off was all that she had carried that was contrary to the Spirit of God. He had placed His hands on her heart so that it would begin to beat once again after His own heart and would now be able to move with much prayer in the demonstration of His love and unity by the power of His Spirit.
As she finished dusting herself off, she stood up and the stench was gone. She now carried the fragrance of Heaven of love and truth.

We Get To Do This - Deb Killian
This morning I had to battle overwhelming discouragement, sadness and hopelessness! It is so NOT like me that I was able to see it for what it was. The enemy's plot. Watching my 34 year old little yellow-nape amazon named Sylvester, my birdie boy, decline is breaking my heart. At the same time, so is the provoked racial division, the hurricanes, fires and floods, the immaturity of rioters, looters and murderers (in the name of some cause) and all the other negative things jamming our social media and news outlooks.
I have a good friend who has been through 2 near death experiences...a bout with cerebral malaria and recently another disguised as a cancer threat. One of the things she heard God tell her during this last "scare" was "We get to do this." It's become a mantra for me (and many others) as we go through things. I'm so sad to lose my little friend of 36 years, but we get to do this. I'm sorry to see our country being torn apart by a small percentage of people that want to cause division, but we get to do this. I'm hurting for those devastated by fires and storms, but we get to do this. We get to come together. We get to praise God in it all. We get to thwart the devil's plans by rebuking him and gather together in truth. We get to rise up as a church, a body of Christ, and claim what we have been given authority and dominion over.
It is time to take it all back. It is our decision to sit back and watch it all happen around us, or stand up and fight! We can raise our voices against racial divide as we are all one in Christ. Together we can command the storms to stop, terrorism to cease, rioters to stand down. For this reason He says, "Awake, sleeper, and arise from the dead, and Christ will shine (as dawn) upon you and give you light." (Ephesians 5:14) Paul was not talking to sinners but to one of the best churches in the NT. Tozer writes, "Some of the Ephesians were in a somnolent condition, that is, they were morally good but unenlightened. They were religious but unanointed. It is perfectly possible for a good, faithful, loyal church member to be spiritually asleep - being in a spiritual state that parallels natural sleep. When your husband, your wife, your child, your relative, your friend or you go to sleep tonight, the fact that you are unconscious and out of the running for a while is not bothering you. You know that normally you will wake up again. You are not dead, but you are cut off from your environment, all but that which is reflex-breathing and a few other things. Likewise, it is possible to be a Christian, to be in the church and yet be asleep spiritually."
I am proof that everything going on around us, personally, physically and/or spiritually, can be overwhelming and cause us to want to bury our heads for a bit. But I encouraged myself this morning with this reminder and pray it encourages you as well. We get to love, undergird, encourage, embolden and keep each other in the fight.
WE GET TO DO THIS - together with our Triune Godhead and with one another.

God Remembers You - Rana Pullom
Praise God!!!! I feel like it is important to begin this writing with an expression of praise towards our God. God is so faithful and mighty, just and holy!!!! How many times have we counted ourselves out, but God never once changes His mind about who and what we are. The gifts and the callings given to us as we are formed in the womb are without repentance!!! Truly a reason to remember our Savior in this season! Father, we love You. There is no one like You in all the earth.
Recently, while on my way to work, I was listening to the Word of God and was reminded of how remarkable and unfailing is our God. He never strays from His plan for the lives of His people. Generation after generation, stories are the thread that keep family memories alive. Stories are vehicles that carry legacies to the next generation. Remember the way you emotionally respond when you tell of grandma’s hug? In my case it’s the stories of my relationship with my daddy. My children did not have the opportunity to meet him, yet their eyes light up and fill with wonder when I speak of him. My heart connects with theirs and we remember who we are and where we come from. In the same way, the stories of the Bible connect us to a legacy of life and open us up to hear the heart of God.
That morning, the story I was listening to was the about Moses. Most of us have heard the story of Moses and how he was sent to Egypt to free the Israelites and lead them through the wilderness to their promised land. This time, as I was listening to this story, I heard something that I had never heard before. It was surely a Rhema word, a revelation that was fresh to me. God began to whisper to my soul from the very beginning of Moses’ story.
For this writing, I want to start from when Moses was drawn out of the water by Pharaoh’s daughter. She was moved by the Holy Spirit to provide safety for Moses (who was not yet named Moses.) So beautifully orchestrated by the Holy Spirit, Moses was saved by his enemy, sent to live with his mother until he was “grown up” or weaned, and his enemy paid his mother to provide care for her son. Moses was provided safety and provision leading to purpose. He was allowed to stay with his family until he was weaned. It is not 100% clear to me how long Moses was with his birth family, but research indicated that it was between three to five years of age. This is the divine hand of God because, you see, the most important years for development, including identity, is ages 0-5. Do not be deceived, y’all, this was no accident! Moses had the opportunity to learn the ways of his people and to develop a foundation for what would be his core identity for a lifetime. Our God is truly divine in His nature and plans. The story goes on to talk about how Moses was raised in the house of Pharaoh as a prince. According to a book by Kris Valloton, Supernatural Ways of Royalty, this is where Moses learned to walk as a prince with confidence. Moses was moved by the injustice of his people. He must have been so conflicted to be on both sides of the world. On goes the story; Moses fled Egypt, married, had children, and was comfortably living his life. The Bible states that God remembered His covenant with Abraham and took notice of His people … and God remembered Moses. Exodus 2:25
Moses was comfortable minding his own business tending to his sheep when he saw a bush on fire, but it was not burning up. He was curious and in awe, so he decided to take a closer look. When he turned to investigate, God spoke to him. In this moment of curiosity, Moses encountered the living God and he would never be the same. In fact, Moses would become a friend of God. The Bible does not say that Moses knew God.
He was not walking around with his hands lifted high, singing praises, paying tithe, or being a good Christian. He was comfortable and was simply strolling through life. But God saw the pain of His people … and God knew. He remembered the deposit that He had made in Moses. He remembered the promise that He gave to Abraham. He remembered that when Moses was formed in his mother’s womb, when he was drawn up out of the water, He had made a Holy Spirit deposit in him and gave him a purpose that would not be aborted. God encountered Moses on a mountain and gave him a call upon his life. Moses clearly did not want the call and he tried to escape it! But in all His majesty and authority, God said to him, “I am who I am” and sent him on his way with a call that carried an unexpected end.
God is the same yesterday, today and forever. He is encountering His people today. He is remembering the deposit made and the provision given when no one could have possibly understood the depth of the call. In our own lives in this season, God is encountering His people and pouring out His Spirit on all flesh. Mothers, when you placed your hand on your womb and asked God to touch your baby, or when you cried out for salvation to come to your wayward children, God heard you. As for you and your house, you will be saved. Fathers, when you struggled to make life work and to bring the pieces together, when everything failed, God saw you. Single parents, when you struggled and thought all was lost, God was with you. Ministers, when you made the choice to serve the living God and walk away from tradition, only to have your peers shun you, God’s hand was on you. He will make you a flame of fire. If God was moved by a rebellious people, a generation of haters and whiners, He will remember you. If God encountered a man in his forties that lived his life separate from Him, He will encounter you. It never ceases to amaze me how a story can become brand new even when we have heard or read it a thousand times. God truly uses the simple things of this life to bring revelation and to provide encounter moments that shift our spiritual DNA.
God told me once that this season is just a season. I initially thought, “Hmmm, not sure that I am excited about that statement.” God did not say much more. However, over time, I have learned that each season is just a season. We must learn how to embrace the season we are in and prepare for an encounter with our Heavenly Father.

A Christmas Treasure - Carol Krum
Christmas of 2010 was one that I felt would be more of a blur than a sweet memory, but God, in His infinite goodness, would breathe His love upon my life to remind me of what is really important.
Working 12–14 hours a day, traveling to two different cities, shopping, wrapping, baking and attending the family gatherings before Christmas had me in a blender of frenzy. We were leaving for Denver the week before Christmas and with so much activity going on before we even left, I made the decision not to put up my tree that year since we weren’t even going to be there to enjoy it.
One evening, I arrived home late from work, only to find a note taped to my back door. It was from my 16-year-old grandson, Austin. It read, “Dear Gaga, you will find a HUGE surprise waiting for you in the living room. Love, Austin - ps. I just couldn’t let you be a Scrooge this Christmas!”
Laughing all the way, I stepped around the corner to see the gift of all gifts! He had rummaged through my Christmas storage room, pulled out the tree and determined the decoration theme of his choice, as I have two! There before my eyes was the most beautifully decorated tree I could ever hope to see. It wasn’t done the way I would have done it, which was part of the beauty of the gift.
It simply amazed me that this 16-year-old boy would care enough to take the time out of his day to do something so tremendous for his grandmother. My heart was flooded with love and thanksgiving for the heart of this beautiful young man. All the memories we had made together came rushing to the surface in waves of joy, reminding me of how richly blessed I was to be his grandmother. My heart took a picture that night and I knew that it would be etched within forever. Little did I know at the time how very deep that etching would be!
The following September this precious love of my life died in a motocross accident at the young age of seventeen. Three months later, with the chokehold of grief gripping my heart, the Christmas season came rushing upon me whether I was prepared or not, and it was time to bring up the tree. With tears streaming down my cheek, I reached for the first ornament. Immediately, I was struck with the truth that this very ornament had rested in the hands of love just one year before. Suddenly, what had been an ordinary ornament became a treasured symbol of love in my own hand. Thus began a sacred tradition meant just for me. He gave to me his last Christmas gift that year, his gift of love and decorating my tree would never be the same again!
It has been seven years since the night of my sweet surprise and once again, it’s time to bring up the tree. With each ornament I hold, the memory of his love will continue to seep into all the crevices of my heart, overwhelming me with the deepest gratitude for having been blessed with treasures that cannot be bought. I cherish the sacredness of every moment while decorating my tree, for it is a beautiful reflection of the years shared with a most amazing human being who called me “Gaga”.
May you be blessed this Christmas with giving and receiving unexpected treasures that will captivate your heart, treasures that cannot be bought with money, yet hold a priceless value. When the festivities are over and your home is returned to normal, may your heart also be etched with memories made and love shared. For there truly is no greater gift we could give to one another than this!

Don't Be Discouraged - Cal Pierce
There is a lot going on in the world today. Everything is being shaken. There is a line being drawn between those who want God in America and those who seem to want to remove God from America. It's so easy to be distracted from God's plan for our country when we see what's happening. Too many believers are getting discouraged by all of this. We must stay focused on what God says to us in the last days.
The enemy wants us to be discouraged in order to keep us from God's plan. In Ephesians 6:12, we are told where the battle lies:
Our battle is not with people, but with demonic forces of darkness. In verse 13, it goes on to say,
It's time to put on the full armor of God. Notice, it's time to put on God's armor, not our armor. God's armor gives us the Word of God and the Holy Spirit, who gives us power over all the power of the enemy. (Luke 10:18) With God's armor, no weapon formed against you will prosper. (Isaiah 54:17)
God has a plan, His Word, and nothing man does, or the enemy, can change that plan. Jesus told us that,
We must focus on the Kingdom of God, not on the world. We are to bring the Kingdom of God to the world. Don't allow the enemy to discourage you. Have you ever looked up the meaning of "dis" in your dictionary? It means, "ruler of the underworld." The enemy wants to steal your encouragement that comes from God and "dis" it, so you will have dis-couragement and not bring the Kingdom into the world. Let's keep our eyes on Jesus and prepare for what God is getting ready to do as His Glory covers the whole earth. Remember, we overwhelmingly conquer through Him who loves us. (Rom. 8:37)
Changing Seasons - Carol Krum
My husband and I went on a motorcycle ride the other day, wanting to capture the beauty of the changing fall colors. Gazing on the barren trees, having been stripped of their lovely foliage in this season, I was once again reminded of the many birds of the air that had found a safe refuge tucked in the thickness of such beauty, a place for mothers to birth her babies, feed them and ultimately teach them how to fly. Nature has a way of teaching us so many truths about the cycle of life.
Observing those very trees that stand naked in the forest amidst the stalwart evergreens, a question arises within my mind. How can they appear so very dead and yet live? And isn’t it interesting that their limbs always grow upwards, as though praising God in the midst of their stripping! Once in a while, a single robin may even perch on one of those very limbs singing a sweet melody, while perhaps wondering where all the leaves have gone. Where is the shelter from the wind and rain that was once there?
Can we not all relate to such feelings when the storms of life hit us, where the very things the Lord has given us that have been so good and life-giving were suddenly and unexpectedly removed, such as jobs, ministries, relationships, even the life of a loved one. And we find ourselves stripped in some way of the beauty of what once was! Without our permission we are called into a new season of life, where we must catch our breath and get our footing before we can move forward. Just as those naked trees stand in the midst of the unending life of the evergreens, so are we called!
What seems to be lifeless on the outward appearance is in fact exploding with life in the deepest places. During the dormant season, the roots of those trees are actively growing deeper and deeper to find nourishment. They are forced to grow, forced to forge through the darkness making new paths in the dirt that will lead them to their source of new life. While the roots spread further and deeper during the long winter months, the sign of increase will appear in the spring with the tree trunks expanding, the branches growing taller and lush foliage even more beautiful than the year before. With each passing season, those very trees become much stronger, with the capability of withstanding terrific storms without breaking, bending or falling. Hmmm…. Interesting analogy, isn’t it?
Reflecting on these parallels of nature and humanity, I also realize that every single form of life begins in darkness … a seed in the ground, a bird in the egg, a butterfly in a cocoon, a baby in the womb! I say it again, every form of life begins in darkness, created by the Light of the world. In that place of darkness, there is constant activity, albeit miniscule, if measured by the human eye.
When we enter a season that takes us into the darkness of discouragement, fear and confusion, where what we have known has been removed and our sense of security and stability has been shaken, it is then that we must recall what happens in these dark places. The roots of our faith are forced to go to new depths that will sustain us, strengthen us, and empower us as we await the viable presence of God to lift us up once again. Oh how easy it is to be hard on ourselves in these foreign places, finding ourselves unsteady and unsure, frightened and perhaps angry at being forced into such a place, questioning how any good thing can possibly come out of this.
Oh, But God…..
What treasures are being developed within that only God would do during a season such as this! Nothing is for naught when in the hand of the Almighty! He is faithful to always make good come out of everything for those who passionately love and pursue Him. His promises are forever Yes and Amen! He has not taken His eye off of us, nor forsaken us. He will not only carry us through and deliver us from all our troubles, but in the process of earthly time, He will create within us a deeper capacity to carry the increase of love, peace, joy, wisdom, understanding and compassion, thereby strengthening and empowering us to be witnesses of His light of truth and hope to the hurting of the world around us. It is difficult to consider such a process as holy and good while in the midst of it, yet this is one of the ways in which Christ is truly formed within us. Is it any wonder that He tells us in 1 Thessalonians 5:18,
It defies our human logic to be thankful in the midst of such suffering, yet thanksgiving is the very key He has given us to declare our trust in Him. We are being trained up, given an opportunity to exercise the spiritual muscles of our faith through our praise and thanksgiving. What we speak, we become! We must not wait to do it only when we feel like it; we must do it until we feel like! The great mysteries of God will forever defy our human logic and understanding. That is why we can stand faithfully on His promise in Proverbs 3:5-6
So if you find yourself in such a season as this, may I suggest to you that you put a smile on your heart, lift your hands unto the Lord and say, "I proclaim today that I shall have a very Happy Thanksgiving the Name of Jesus!"

Transitioning Season - Rana Pullom
I have started this article several times, wondering to myself, well mostly to God, if I am even worthy to write for His Kingdom. God is so patient and gracious with me. He has allowed me to work out this piece of myself with gentle nudging and reminders of His greatness in me. Clearly, Holy Spirit does not entertain my small thoughts. He gently pushes me in the direction that He would have me go. This grace is not just for me, but for all of God’s people, the burning ones, as we enter the awakening that is taking place throughout the earth.
The last several years have been a journey for my family and a renewed connection to the life that flows from the throne of God. In the midst of transition, a new thing started to happen in me. It was an awakening of something that God put inside of me as a little girl. You see, when I moved to Spokane my life was full of trauma and I have never been the same. My childhood was stripped from me and my heart was left in the space that was my home. I was twelve years old. I began to despise the very things of God that were all around me, particularly the changing of the seasons. The child in me longed for the safety and normalcy that I shared with my family when I did not know that we were broken. Every year for twenty-eight years, I would dread the impending fall and winter. I could only see death and long for the spring and summer to return.
Holy Spirit spoke to me two falls ago. He said to me, "Rana, look up and see the beauty of where I have placed you." Reluctantly, I looked, and my eyes were opened! I began to see the colors and the necessity for fall and winter seasons. I began to look from what I had lost to a preference, what I had lost to a man-made secure place. My heart began to heal. I praised God for his graciousness and wondered if I would teach on this one day. God "Fathered" me in that moment in a way that only He can do. He simply said, "Yes, you will write about it." I accepted that, and then completely dismissed it. Certainly, God was not done with me. He began to peel away layers of pain and toxicity, and with the grace that only our Father can extend, my heart was stitched back together and the pieces of my life that had been left in the mountain of my childhood were brought back into a sense of wholeness. Life proceeded onward. I forgot about the instruction of God to write about my encounter with Him that day.
The following year, my spirit began to leap with joy as the trees started to change color and prepare for the coming winter months. I thought, "Hmmm, this is different!" Holy Spirit began to speak to me again. He said to me "Don’t despise the seasons. Just like the earth needs seasons, you need seasons.” I pondered this for several days and was reminded of the lilac bushes that require a cold winter season. In fact, lilacs in our area must freeze in their dormant season in order to bloom in their awakening season.
Holy Spirit began to talk to me about the need for the season of the secret place. He said to me me, "It is in the secret place, the place that appears dormant, that I make you strong. The secret place is where I build nations." There are many stories in the Bible of moments when it appeared that the enemy would overcome. David hid in a cave. Elijah fled from Jezebel. Peter often chose the wrong thing. Saul was blind for three days. Samson was rebellious. The chosen people of God died in the wilderness. Today we see the impact of the sleeping church in our schools, politics, market place, churches, and perhaps our homes. Conformity is pushed on us at every turn. Even in this, God always keeps a remnant. There is always a people in the secret place. Elijah was told by God that he was not alone. In fact, there were 7000 others! (1 Kings 19:18) Nehemiah rebuilt a wall. Noah built the ark. Abraham fathered the nations. I believe that God is the same yesterday today and forever. Is there a remnant today? Are there any that are waiting in the secret place? If God is the same, then it must be true. We can trust that God has a plan, a remnant.
Change is hard; it requires forerunners and a fresh wine skin to carry the new wine. At times it can become overwhelming. I am often reminded of Elijah and the great power of God in which he walked. He called down fire from the heavens and an altar full of wet wood was consumed by the burning fire of God. As the body of Christ is advancing and the guards are changing, might I be so bold as to say that in this next season there will be burning ones that will come out of the secret place - nameless and faceless. But they will be in full bloom like the freshness of spring. Their fires will not go out! God will go before them and will be in them. Their fire will be sustained by the pressing of the oil while in the secret place. They will not be superficial or caught in the lights, but they will be pure and will be like the seven virgins going to the bridegroom. They will not carry big names, but will impact nations by the power of God and will love like Jesus loves, carrying His fragrance everywhere they go. Their faces might not be remembered, but the impact of the cross will be left everywhere they go and their inheritance will be great. In this season of our lives, in the place into which the bride of Christ is walking, let us become a generation of burning ones.

Original Design and Purpose - Cathy Hopkins
Love is without judgment – it does not speak from the natural knowing.
As we minister, we cannot judge what we see in the natural, there is no love in judgment. Are we willing to see what God sees and set aside our natural thoughts and judgments to then allow what God sees to come forth?
For example, someone comes for prayer who is overweight. They want prayer for the pain in their knees. In the natural, we know extra weight stresses many parts of the body, but we know nothing about why this is in their life. We have to stand in agreement with them for what God wants to come forth in their body and in their lives.
We are praying for the strategy of God, the key to unlock the bonds the enemy has put on people. We want the key that opens the door to their freedom.
We speak of pulling up roots, pulling out/off things of the enemy, things that don’t belong to folks, fear that keeps them in bondage, trauma that destroys.
This past week I have heard the words again from a word the Lord gave me 1 ½ years ago as I prayed in the Spirit one night when He woke me up.
“Original Design and Purpose -
Break up the Fallow ground of hearts that they can now receive the rain of My Spirit and much fruit is produced.”
In my mind I saw a hard, unproductive ground with big weeds coming up, the kind that when it rains, the water tends to run off more than it soaks in. What I thought and what I saw was a plow breaking up that hard ground. But Holy Spirit whispered to me, “My ways are not your ways, My thoughts are not your thoughts.”
Suddenly I saw rain, the slow steady sweet kind of rain… the days and days kind that just greens up everything almost immediately. And I was reminded that when you need to pull weeds, the easiest time is right after a rain, when the ground is loose. They come up with little effort and much less work. The hole that is left is easily filled by the loose ground around where the root of that weed had once been.
Where was my focus on how to break up the unproductive ground? Mine was a plow, hard painful work for all, and I personally wouldn’t want to water the hard ground with weeds until I broke it up. After all, the weeds will just grow! BUT He isn’t worried about the weeds. He’s concerned with the ground, the ground of our hearts.
He has brought Isaiah 30:20-21 to me recently as well.
The footnote from the Passion for vs. 20 states that the word used for Teacher is a homonym for rain. When God teaches our hearts, it is like spring rain falling, refreshing and renewing our spirits. And He knows that as He pours in by His Spirit ……everything changes! Weeds are choked out, displaced and easily removed.
I’ll never forget the day the Holy Spirit asked me a question. He asked me “What do you think of yourself?" This was such a God moment. I immediately thought the word ‘disgust’ and I ran for the bathroom as I thought I was going to be physically ill. He then gave me a memory showing me when that thought of myself had become my "filter" in life. I was about 12. I was truly taken back!
My next thought was about how much counseling this was going to take to be healed and how I didn’t have the money for it. This was especially weird for me because I was never one to even consider the idea of counseling.
But immediately the Lord began to show me His great Love was all I needed. He showed me that a little book I was given, and had been sitting in for quite some time reading and reading and rereading about His love, was what was already changing me, revealing the root. The book was by Max Lucado called Safe in the Shepherd's Arms, all about the 23rd Psalm. It was one of the first things my husband, Larry, gave me when we met 16 years ago. He was a Max fan, I was not. But because he gave it to me, I read it... and read it and read it and read it!
This little book paints an amazing picture of the love of God, the love of Father God. I had soaked and soaked in this book UNTIL the love I learned through that book, the Word of God, Psalm 23 had so broken up the fallow (unproductive) ground of my heart and loosened that root so that the Lord could help me identify the self-disgust and remove it. It was beyond powerful for me, and was very much a huge step in my being able to more fully come into His original design and purpose for me.
Because of the rain of His Spirit by His love through the 23rd Psalm, I was able to overcome a huge obstacle in my life. It is the love of God that changes everything. We must walk in it toward one another and toward those for whom we pray. We give out to others from the overflow of His Presence – our outflow must be the overflow of our intimate walk with Him; otherwise it’s just us.
Oh, and the date for the word about Original Design, breaking up fallow ground was on 4/14! Esther 4:14 states,
Each person who comes in our midst has a ‘such a time as this’, just as we do. I believe we are walking in ours as we pray for them, as we create an atmosphere of Heaven for them to discover their original design and purpose in the Kingdom.
