Letters From God

 Hope Deferred = Sick Heart

My people see me as a Magician - able to wave a magic wand in their lives and "Hey Presto" all things become good and ways and perfect again. This is false teaching and a false doctrine. The Kingdom way has never been like this.

"You reap what you sow" The act of faith, the substance of things not seen, the unrighteous must change their thoughts, stretch forth your withered arm - Do what doesn't come naturally.

 Sow in truth: Truth comes from God . It is not natural. Everything from the kingdom is enmity to the flesh (natural mind). It requires a change of heart and a shift in our thinking to bring the Kingdom truth to earth. And it is only possible through the action of the Spiritual Truth.

If you sow in thoughts of fear, doubt, unbelief then that is what you reap. But if you sow in thoughts of trust, belief, agreement with God then That is what you reap.  

 Example: a couple wanted to buy a house, but having found what they wanted they were suddenly afraid to proceed with the purchase.  Why did they seek a house? what was their motivation? was the desire "of God"? And, if they had got the answer, where did the fear come from?

Question: Why would God put fear in this couple's hearts at receiving the answer to their prayer?

Answer: He wouldn't . He is a good God who give good gifts to his children. Believe, trust in Him and his provision.

Work out the source (of the fear), discern the situation. Don't let the enemy rob you of  your perfect answer.

When the 10 spies entered the promise land and brought back a "bad report"  (there are giants in the land) they had seen exactly the same things as Caleb and Joshua. But they focused on their fear of the giants, not the provisions of the land. Therefore, They never entered into Canaan, but Caleb and Joshua Did.

What we "see" and focus our attention on becomes our reality. If all we see is the "fear of the giants" the problems/difficulties/uncertainty that accompany any big decision, then they will paralyze you and you will be robbed of your answer and the opportunity to go forward. That's  what the enemy wants, he does not want you to benefit from "the promised land" the bounty within.

That's why only Caleb and Joshua entered (Canaan), because they focused on the good stuff, the amazing provision of the land. They Did see the giants as well, but they were not dismayed, or overwhelmed by them.  They saw that with God's help the land was Good and the giant's able to be overcome. This is faith, belief and trust in God; this was a positive sowing that brought forth a positive harvest for them.

The other side is sowing in fear, then you reap immobility/status ultimately death, even if only of your dreams - your promised land.

Many are in the "Meadow of Hope Differed" because when the answers and opportunities they were waiting for came, they were paralyzed by the fear of "doing the wrong thing", or of making a mistake. But if you have sought God about a situation and here is the answer, why would He give you a stone or a rotten fruit? He is a Good God! Trust the answer, believe He is good and in faith receive and act upon your answer. Go through the door of "Longing Fulfilled"

Even if things don't go as you expect, stand on the promise that "All things work together for good for those that love God and are called according to His purpose" ALL THINGS! Even if we don't do things completely "right" He will redeem us. And He Does because it is a Kingdom Law. We can't get it wrong! If we trust in God He is able to redeem even our bad decisions, so why worry?

But this is Not an act magic by a Magician. This is a God working for us if we act in faith. Life is Movement/action ; Death is status/atrophy. The people of hope move in faith and trust; the people of fear and doubt remain in the meadow of hope deferred, waiting for God to wave a magic wand.

To go through the Longing Fulfilled door the people had to "get up and move", God wasn't going to levitate them through the door (He Could but He doesn't). Because ultimately that doesn't help us. WE need to act in faith because Movement is Life.  Arise, Arise you sleepers, get up!

God, Jesus, Holy Spirit are waiting for action - even just a "yes" decision. I Do believe, the land Is full of promise, I Will act upon my answer (even if it isn't exactly what I expected, wanted, imagined) I chose to believe and obey.

YAH YAH YAH says God;  Now go through the door and into your Promised Land. I Will Bless You. Your Faith Has Made You Whole

 

Galatians 8: 7,8 Be not deceived: God is not mocked, for whatsoever a man soweth, that shall he reap. For he that soweth to his flesh. shall of the flesh reap corruption, but he that soweth to the Spirit, shall of the Spirit reap life everlasting."

Hebrews 11:1,2   Now faith is the substance of things hoped for, and the sign that the things not seen are true. For by it our fathers had God's approval

Isaih 55:6,7 Seek the LORD while he may be found; call on him while he is near. Let the wicked forsake their ways and the unrighteous their thoughts. Let them turn to the LORD, and he will have mercy on them, and to our God, for he will freely pardon.

Numbers 13-14 The Lord sends spies into Canaan, report: 27-29     Caleb's answer: 30    Consternation of children of Israel 14:1-4.   Moses and Aaron, Caleb and Joshua's appeal to them 5-9    God's reply 11-12    Moses's appeal 13-19   God's decision 20-35  Death of 10 spies by plague  37

Proverbs 13:12 Hope deferred makes the heart sick, but a longing fulfilled is a tree of life.

I listened to Doug Addison's vision of the Meadow of Hope Deferred. Please refer to his website (May 2017) This was the insight given to me afterwards. God Bless you Doug, your words are branches from the Tree of Life

Romans 8:28  And we know that all things work together for good to them that love God, to them who are the called according to his purpose.
