“A broken spirit; a broken and contrite heart, God will not despise!” (Psalm 51:17).
While talking to The LORD, this evening, He all of a sudden brought back this word which I, as far as I know, never send out.
I think it is from a year or two ago… could be longer could be shorter…
I pray out of the bottom of my heart, that it will encourage those, who think that things or certain situations will never change! Or that they are not good enough to receive a task, or those who have been spit out by others, mocked and ridiculed, and are at the brink of giving up!
Let our sacrifice, to God, be a broken spirit; a broken and contrite heart, for I know God, will not despise it.
This morning, while I visit my LinkedIn and Twitter accounts, The LORD started to reveal things to me.
He showed me how many words are written and being spoken, while He did not send them out, nor spoke them!
He showed me how many of us are TRYING to create events, TRYING to get people to minister, and it must be people who are “famous” most of the time…
Then The LORD starts to speak:
“All the work you do in MY name, while it is YOUR plan, and you speak YOUR words, will not be fruitful.
Where I GO you need to follow and what I want to speak through your mouth, you need to OPEN yours, and what I want to pray you need to SPEAK!
So, just surrender and obey Me for if you stay IN Me you will bear much fruit.”
“As the branch cannot bear fruit by itself, unless it remains in the vine, so neither can you, unless you remain in me,” John 15:4.
It seems a short word, but I felt deep down inside of me that Abba is calling us to really take this seriously, because all the labor we do in own strength and out of own plans will not bear fruit!
While writing this down, He shows me a vision of a girl. Sweet face, long brown hair.
“Look at her eyes,” The LORD says to me, “What do you see?”
My answer: “Abba, I see eyes which speak of uncertainty, being shy almost…”
Then The LORD says:
“This is an image of My children who doubt themselves, while I have them in the palm of My hands.
They offered Me their broken spirit and a broken and contrite heart and they are ready to be send out!” Says The LORD.
Then The LORD gives me this message:
“Those who think so highly of themselves, but work in own strength and own power, will be surprised, because I will show the world that those they despise and those who seem to be stupid in the eyes of the world, I will send and I will use for the sake of My Name and Kingdom.
These children of mine are in total surrender and love Me and are broken vessels in My hands.
I can speak through them, minister through them, where I go they will go and where I speak they open their mouths, and where I pray they speak it into the heavenly realms, so it will not come back in vain.
They give Me all the Glory and they are not searching for fame, but are completely filled with My Spirit and they sense and experience MY love for those who are lost and for those who need MY voice to help them to grow from little lambs to adult sheep!
I AM surrounding them, with My Holy Fire and I will send them in MY power and favor.”
“Let no one deceive himself. If any of you thinks he is wise in this age, he should become a fool, so that he may become wise. For the wisdom of this world is foolishness in God’s sight. As it is written: “He catches the wise in their craftiness.” And again, “The Lord knows that the thoughts of the wise are futile.” 1 Corinthians 3:18-20.
“My sacrifice, O God, is a broken spirit; a broken and contrite heart you, God, will not despise,” Psalm 51:17.
Blessings and Shalom over you!
