The Reserve

There were some people concerned about the animal population in Africa. They decided to build a wildlife Reserve. They erected a fence around it.

Everything that was inside of the fence was considered part of the Reserve - the animals, trees and vegetation. Everything outside of the fence was considered jungle and wild.

In drought they would make sure the animals inside the fence had water. They would feed them in the lean years to preserve them.

They noticed a young male lion always sitting at the fence looking into the jungle. And it was commented that he looked so sad. And everyone wondered why he sat there day after day looking into the jungle. No one knew why he did that.

One day a tree fell on the fence and broke it. All the wild animals rushed onto the Reserve and began to kill and eat all the protected animals.  The young lion ran up to a pride of invading lions to befriend them. They attacked him and would have killed him, but he found a cleft and hid himself.

It took two weeks before order could be restored and the fence repaired.  The young lion was no where to be seen. Finally, he reemerged. He never went back and sat at the fence after that.

____________________________________________________

The moral of the story is that the fence was not there to keep the young lion in, but to keep the wild animals out.

The rules that parents come up with are not there to keep you from having fun, or to have you bound, or to make you sad. Parents know what it takes to keep the devil off of you.

It goes back to the things that God will and won’t allow to preserve your life.  It was grace that whatever was inside the fence was protected. What was on the inside didn’t choose it. They were chosen by the ones who put up the fence.

It was for their own protection that they were fed, watered and cared for. The wild animals weren’t raised like that. They only knew what their nature taught them, in other words, they were carnal.

And again the moral is that the fence was never there to keep the young lion in, it was there to keep the wild animals out. The young lion didn’t realize that what he had was better than what they had.

Joshua 10 –

As you obey my instructions, I will give you the neck of all your enemies that you may overcome and conquer them, and possess their land.

Be strong in Me and never seek to compromise your position in Me. I am worthy of all praise, honor and glory.

So, I Say

So, I say unto you, be bold and very courageous for lo I am with you always even until the end of this age. I have called you unto myself that I might demonstrate my love to a sin-sick, love-starved, desperate mass of people ever-learning but never coming to the knowledge of Me through my Son, Yeshua.

I know your heart and it is pure before me. I will give you the hidden treasures of wisdom and knowledge, kept reserved for my chosen ones, who walk after the dictates of my Spirit. They are my very own choice possessions in whom my soul delights.

I am seeking true worshippers who will worship Me in Spirit and in Truth, for such my heart longs for.

You are my chosen vessel for this hour and this day. I will pour my Spirit into you without measure that you may flow in the power of the Holy Spirit. The work I have ordained for you is glorious.

Be steadfast, knowing that I am on your side and am fighting for you. Keep a vigilant watch as I come to secure you unto myself.

Hearken diligently to my voice. Continually abide in me that you may be fruitful and multiply. Stay attuned to my Spirit. Go forward in Me, well anchored, rooted and grounded in my love. I am your peace, joy, deliverance, hope and everlasting Father.

Trust Me. Hope only in Me. Look to Me for all things and I will provide that which you need. Stay close to Me. Hold on to my unchanging hand.

The harvest is plentiful. Therefore go forth and gather my elect from the four corners of the earth. For I am with you, to establish you and to build you.

It is I, your Ishi and friend. I love you with an everlasting love that will never fail you. So, go in my Name, and I will keep you always as the apple of my eye and the joy of my heart.

Blessings and Glory and Honor and Praises and Power unto the Lamb of God. Amen and Amen

To My Son, Bobby

I thank you GOD for allowing me to come to morning prayer.  I am learning to cry out to GOD, for everything I need is in Him (Matthew 6:33 - seek first the kingdom of GOD). My primary concern means to put GOD first in my life, for me to fill my thoughts with His desire, to take His character for my pattern and to serve and obey Him in everything.

Bobby what is really important to you? Is it people, objects, goals and other desires to complete for priorities?  Bobby you need to know that any of these things can bump GOD out of first place. Bobby you must actively choose to give GOD- Jesus - first place in every area of your life.

Trust In The LORD

Deuteronomy 6, 7 –

I am with you to prosper you in all your ways. Keep your eyes on me and trust me alone. I will lead and guide you and teach you all things whatsoever you desire and need to know.

Stay focused on me. Don’t look to other gods to direct your path. You will begin to hear from me clearer and clearer as you trust me to speak to you directly, face to face. Don’t become impatient. Just trust and wait in my presence.

I love you and will do only good toward you and your household. Keep the faith, stay strong, be bold and very courageous to do all that I have commanded you.

LOVE

Being loved costs you nothing.

I use the word often

And you squirm as if it threatens to take something from you.

The reality is that it gives you something,

Something you forsook for the sake of an image or impression.

Freedom.

I love you enough to let you be free to be wholly you.

Let loose your crazy ideas,

Which really aren’t crazy when you see them for what they are,

Statements of love,

Or at least the desire to do so.

So as I love you,

You become free to do the same.

Lady, love…

Because you are loved.

My life is not my own

It belongs to someone far

greater than I.

I am a lamb

Weak and innocent

Needing to be led by the hand.

So many unseen dangers are in

my way

but I have a Shepherd who will

not let me stray.

Though sometimes it seems He is not

there

but when I need Him, I feel His

tender loving care.
