A CALL TO REST IN HIM (Part 4)

Love Beam

Tell ye the daughter of Sion, Behold, thy King cometh unto thee, meek, and sitting upon an ass, and a colt the foal of an ass (Matthew 21: 5). 

A sister from Amsterdam sent me a note about a new book called “Donkey Business” and suggested that ‘I was like the donkey, carrying Jesus all around’.  I thought about this and came up with the above verse of scripture and then looked up some of the Greek meanings of key words in it.  So, for all of you reading, I paraphrase the same verse:  Declare to all descendants of the Triumphant Church, ‘Behold, your King cometh unto you, humble, and His sandals are resting on all that is holding you under the yoke of the enemy.  He is the BEAM of the balance that reconnects you to freedom in relationship with God the Father.’

All of us need to rethink where we have positioned ourself in Christ.  Have we renounced, repented, and turned from the enemy of ‘self’ and are we coupled with Christ in humility and love to the glory of our heavenly Father?  Are we allowing Jesus, the Christ to rest His sandals on all of our circumstances?  Are you carrying Him with BALANCE, EASE and TRIUMPH wherever you go?  ‘Come unto Me, all ye that labour and are heavy laden, and I WILL give you rest.  Take My yoke upon you, and learn of Me; for I am meek and lowly in heart:  and ye SHALL find rest unto your souls.  For My yoke IS easy, and My burden IS light.’  (Matthew 11:  28-30). 

I would like to introduce you to Bishop Simon and his ministry in Eldoret, Kenya (via video clip below).  I have been to Africa and the people there worship with such adoration and love for their Savior.  They ‘touch the heart of God” and CARRY the manifested Presence of God into their life circumstances (burdens) because they have nothing else to rely on externally.  We, who have much, often forget how needful we are for His Presence.

    • To all of you ‘carrying Jesus into Honduras, Guatemala, and Mexico’ I pray Psalm 3 over all areas of your personal lives, and over all aspects of the ministry.

      “LORD, there are many enemies who are rising up against Your people and mocking Your name, in this day and in the coming days. We join together in unity, and in Your name, Jesus, and we declare that You are our Shield, our Glory, and the Lifter of our heads. We have assurance that You hear us as we cry out to You for Your protection and covering. You sustain us and give us rest when we are weary in body, soul, and spirit. You have already CONQUERED the enemy, Jesus, and we proclaim that we sit with You in heavenly places and the enemy is under our feet! We thank You, Jesus, for all You accomplished for us on the cross and we recognize You as Lord, we praise You, and submit wholly to You all that we are to the honor and glory of our heavenly Father. We thank You that Your blessing rests on all Your people! Amen.”

  2. Hi Judy;

    The Lord just gave me a vision of what “resting in Him” looks like!!!

    Jesus is reclining in an easy chair, without a care in the world, for He knows that ALL things are in His Father’s hands.

    He beckons me, (His children) to rest in Him. I say how do I do that? He says turn around and let your self fall on Me, trusting and knowing I won’t let you come to any harm.

    As I do as He says it’s as if , when I fall back I just become immersed in Him, so that I am in Him with no “feeling” of separation.

    He and I are one.

    When I move He moves, or better said, when He moves, I move with Him. I am “in Him” as the book of Ephesians talks about!!!

    What effect can the cares of the world have on me, when EVERY THING that tries to come against me has to go through Him to get to me.

    Is there any anxiety, fear, or stress, or lack in me when I am in Him…………..Not

    But there is His peace, sweet peace, the peace that He gives, can only be found “in Him”

    My Spirit man loves to dwell here, “in Him”.

    But my self-ish man YELLS “HEY, WHAT ABOUT ME, I LOOSE MY IDENTITY”

    My only answer is “SHUT UP SELF,I’ve been where you wanted to take me, and I’m not going back.

    Isaiah 26:3 says “Thou God, will keep me in perfect peace, when my focus is staid (fixed) on Thee, because I trust in Thee.

    “And when trials come, as they surely will, just get your eyes back on the Lord and He will see you through”..

    Trials are simply test to see if we will continually abide in Him, or look to the right or left and get dis-tracted.

    Because we are not perfected, yet, we will get dis-tracted, but…………………

    The more I trust Him, the easier and quicker it is to fall back into immersion in Him, when I do get dis-tracted, believing that He has only good plans for me, plans to bless me and prosper me, not to cause me harm.

    I thank you Lord, for this vision, may it bless your Church and draw others to you.

    Bro ken, in His Service

    • WOW!!! How absolutely wonderful… as I was reading I thought of the old water beds. When you allowed yourself to fall backward onto it, it sort of ‘engulfed’ you! What sweet peace your explanation brought to me, Ken. It is exactly as you say, Christ in us and we in Him; ONE, as Jesus and the Father are ONE (John 14: 10, 11; John 15: 5-7)! Praise the Lord! 🙂 IF WE REMAIN HIDDEN IN HIM (Colossians 3: 1-3), ANYTHING COMING AGAINST US MUST GO THROUGH GOD… and if God allows it, it is for drawing us back into Him. Our identity rests in Christ; He is our DNA and if we stray, there is an emptiness/hunger within us that nothing else can satisfy. I think the majority of Christians believe in God, believe Jesus is the Son of God and that He lives today at the right hand of God, the Father: but, how many of us BELIEVE HIM (all the promises He has made available to us)? Many are living in fear, not trusting God ‘to catch and hold us’ if we fully surrender our ‘self’ (all we are, etc.); therefore, we are unable to access all the blessings that are sitting right in front of us; all that Jesus paid for on the cross.

      “LORD, I come in Jesus name, the name above all names and I come thanking and praising You for the LIFE you have given to us through Your only Son, Jesus. Father, You know each of us intimately for You created our inmost being; You knit us together and I praise You because each of us are fearfully and wonderfully made; Your works are wonderful, and we know that full well. Your eyes saw all of our days; You even wrote them in Your book before even one of them came to be. How precious to us are Your thoughts, of God. Search us, oh God, and know our heart; test us and know our anxious thoughts. See if there is anything in us that needs to be washed clean by Your precious blood; reveal these things to us, I pray and lead us into days filled with VICTORY and ABUNDANCE through LIFE in You. Amen.”

    My Unending Strength
    A Prophetic Word
    By Mary Clark

    July 13, 2011

    Repost October 11-2011

    I am not getting weaker, beloved.
    My strength is unending.
    It is power and might beyond your comprehension.
    Dwell on that knowledge, that truth.

    I am a God Whose power is endless.
    You cannot fathom the power that I have in My smallest finger.
    You cannot understand My strength and all it encompasses.

    Look at My creation.
    I created all.
    I created those things that you see and those things that you do not see.
    I created them all out of the might and power of My words of truth, absolute truth.
    Now there is a power in which you can sink your teeth.
    It is not a power that you can even imagine, is it, dear child?

    Let it be enough for you to know that you serve the all-powerful God of the universe and I have your best interest at heart.
    You cannot get any better than that, beloved, can you???
