Be Still and Hear…

I received a word from the Lord this morning. “There is a crack in the foundation and there is a crack in the salvation.” He showed me that our Earth has a crack in it because there is a crack in our salvation. People are starting to waiver from their salvation. They, including us, are lowering our convictions and even abandoning them. We have unappreciated grace. We are taking advantage of it. We are in rebellion. This is why the ground we walk on is not solid. And literally there will be a crack on the ground we walk on. A quaking will shake the foundation. And we are walking in the shadow of death. From all the abortions. All the people who have been murdered. God said He is stirring up the hearts of the saints and the sinners. He is stirring them up. He is mixing us up together. He is going to create a unity. I was worshipping and praying. God opened my eyes. Not my physical eyes. The eyes of my heart so I could see His. His heart is broken for His people. His heart is breaking because we have turned our face from Him and His people, Israel.

He showed me a figure(not a specific man or woman) who is walking on a ground that has a crack. One foot is on one side of the crack and the other foot is on the other side. This represents two worlds. Having one foot in the world and one foot in the kingdom of God. We cannot serve the world and serve God. We only serve one. Choose wisely. Matthew 6:24-“No one can serve two masters. Either you will hate the one and love the other, or you will be devoted to the one and despise the other. You cannot serve both God and money.We need to strengthen the foundation. We need to get back to the Word and prayer. “A wise man builds his house on the Rock.”
Matthew 7:24-27- “Therefore everyone who hears these words of mine and puts them into practice is like a wise man who built his house on the rock. The rain came down, the streams rose, and the winds blew and beat against that house; yet it did not fall, because it had its foundation on the rock. But everyone who hears these words of mine and does not put them into practice is like a foolish man who built his house on sand. The rain came down, the streams rose, and the winds blew and beat against that house, and it fell with a great crash.”
We are living in times where we are not solid in our faith. We neglect the words given to us for our protection. We don’t put into practice what we preach. And this is creating the crack in the foundation. We need to go to the Rock, Jesus. We need to do what He has called us to do. Our time is beginning to become faster and become shorter. Do what He wants when He wants before it is it too late!

Burned Bridges

bridge

Burned bridges. We have all done it. We have mishandled things between friends, family, coworkers, etc. We have said the wrong things to someone, thinking we will never see them again. I know I have done this. I have burned my bridges.

What are bridges for anyway? They are for filling the gap between emptiness and create a path for one side to reach the other. When we burn the bridge and path to keep the relationship together….we are severing any chance of that person reaching to our side. It no longer puts us in a neighboring state. It creates more distance between each heart.

There are things I have done that I am not proud of. There is shame in how I mishandled situations. My actions were cowardly and immature. I am willing to admit that.

The Holy Spirit showed me this a few days ago. We, as sinners, burnt our bridge with God the Father. When we were born in sin, it formed a gap between our hands and the Father’s. But his love reached out. He wanted to love us so desperately that he created two pieces of wood, intertwined. Stained with blood. Cut with nails. A crown of thorns on a broken body laid on top of it. The cross.

The cross created a bridge to fill the gap. The cross acted as a bridge, joining the love of an eternal Father and the love of a son/daughter to be united. Sin burned the bridge. Love built a new one. 

Maybe there is a bridge that you have burned that you wished you hadn’t. Let the love of the cross rebuild the bridge between you and Father. And let it join another bridge between a love with His people.

Now, sometimes, it will not be easy trying to rebuild that bridge between you and that person. It involves burying your pride and asking forgiveness. Asking forgiveness is the greatest act of humility. I am still dealing with this. I have also learned that no matter what the person’s reaction is to your asking forgiveness from them has nothing to do with you. But it does start the healing.

I went to church this morning and the pastor was discussing undeserving grace. If we have been given much grace from the Father, how much more should we give others? He said we tend to point the finger and think that someone else is less deserving of grace when we forget how much grace God has given us who are more undeserving. This has brought conviction to my spirit and I wish to be less judgmental as a person. I should not forget the grace that He has shown me.

Be blessed,
