Pick a chair by my fire, and let's talk, shall we? I really, really want you to be encouraged to hear the Lord in ways that are Biblical...yet personal. God is personal with you, and wants to relate to you in ways He relates to no one else.
And so, I want to share with you a little of what, and how, God has been speaking to me.
"For you shall be in league with the stones of the field: and the beasts of the field shall be at peace with you..." Job 5:23
This is a word God gave me, recently.
See, I have been reacquainting myself with the positivity of God. I have been side-swiped again by His sense of humor, and by His surpassing ability to handle everything at once. He is a supreme genius, He loves to laugh with me, He "gets" me when no one else does, can correct me and make me love Him for it, and He never....ever...commits me to anything but a winnable war.
That scripture...up top...in the book of Job? It told me last week in no vague manner that the things that normal people consider obstacles to their harvest (rocks...boulders...Gibraltar...wild animals...lions, tigers, and bears) will for me be the helpers of my harvest.
For me, stones and all manner of impenetrable granite, cougars and wild boars will be forced to become willing participants in my version of world domination.
Just because He loves me, and can trust me with a measure of responsibility and authority.
I know, right? Cool word. The sort of word you have to get for yourself, so do be cracking open your Bible.
