vision from hearing…

Posted June 22nd, 2012 by Leah and filed in Word of Encouragement

Be inspired by these images! Men and women who sat still for a while on The Farm this week and listened to the voice of God deeply penetrating each heart. Catch a glimpse of God’s glory. Life is a progression, always moving forward. New seasons, new relationships…newness each and every day. ┬áThe moment we think we have arrived, that our life, work, even character is fine, we become a stagnant pool. I shared with this precious group from Missouri a verse from Ezekiel 1:25 before they began to paint…

And there came a voice from above the expanse over their heads,

when they stood still and lowered their wings.

It is only when we still our hearts, our minds and think not quite so highly of ourselves, that we hear the voice of God. In humility God raises us up. This progression of learning to discern the voice of God, his will, his way for our lives is just that…a progression until we stand before his throne. Let us lower our wings, yet, raise our hands in surrendered praise!

God’s Word tell us without a vision, an inspiration from God, we perish. Has God given you a vision for your life? Hold tightly to it! Don’t stop believing, even if life’s twists and turns, disappointments and challenges mound up on your path. If it is from God, he will make a way where they seems to be absolutely no way. Even if it means waiting, remember, good things are promised to those who wait on God. Let’s choose to lower our wings, for then we will fly.

Have a weekend of fun and rest in Jesus name!

    Leah,
    I came with the crew from Missouri that did the missions training. I just would like to say how much we appreciated you and your hospitality! The prophetic art training was an awesome experience! While there, I was the one that painted a bird that looked like it was on fire, but it was flying above everything and it was to me like the Lord was saying rise above all the cares and soar–the interpretation given to me from the photographer was beauty for ashes. That night I received news that my older brother had died. Everything that we experienced that day had been preparation for what lay ahead, and God is so good and faithful that He buffers pain.
    When I came to your blog site and read your devotions it was a complete breath of fresh air! Exactly what I needed! You are a real treasure from God and I am thankful to have met you. God has truly given His words of life to you :)
    Blessings to you and your family!
