A Word for 2010


A Time for Men

The heart cries when?
The Lord qualifies with MEN

I am sending men in 2010
When? 2010
Only then, will others mend
Only then, He will send His men.

Rendering of hearts,
Mending of parts!

When? 2010
The hemming will begin
Closer the walk
The Narrower the path
The Sending of men
Trusted men
Loyal men
Mature men
who will know when!

Tending the land of the free—
That is what it will be

The heart cries when?

In 2010 there is no time for the wimpy-whinny men and women or wishy-washy thinkers! It is the time of the confident assurance to rise, for mature fire walkers to rule, and for the seasoned to be tried and true. That is whom the Lord will send.

As each year passes, I find myself pressing into the call of the next season. This year the means of pressing will be the quiet stillness I will afford myself to take. What do I see? I see much warfare for thee yet a greater freedom then ever before. I see longer retreats set aside by man to accomplish tremendous victories.

There will be a greater separation of the serious and the folly. A definition of character that stands tall and its illumination will overwhelm the darkness.

A ministry of presence and His glorified atmosphere will be revealed even to the ones walking in the darkness. Hark the darkness will flee and His presence brings about salvation—healing—deliverance throughout the land.

New life forms, new believers in Christ, will produce a greatness that the men in darkness will fear. Yet the humbled loved ones will prevail in outstanding generosity that will bewilder all!

May the Lord hold you and keep you close to his bosom so that you respond to the call!

In His mighty Love, Dianne

Closing Out 2009

Philippians 3:12-14 (NIV)
Not that I have already obtained this or have already reached the goal; but I press on to make it my own, because Christ Jesus has made me his own. Beloved, I do not consider that I have made it my own; but this one thing I do: forgetting what lies behind and straining forward to what lies ahead, I press on toward the goal for the prize of the heavenly call of God in Christ Jesus.

The year is coming to a close. The excitement of Christmas is over and it is the lull until the speed of the New Year kicks in.

For me this is a time to collect my thoughts, review the year, and clear out my 2009 files and folders on my computer. I think of those 2009 folders I know will be carrying some over to 2010, other files may be referred to from time to time, and then transferred as well. Then there are those files that will never be opened or used again.

As I consider my thought processes, how easy I can relate these files to my life. Maybe you can relate as well. Reviewing my life's journey in 2009 I know there are places, events and words said that I will not revisit nor repeat in 2010. Then of course, there are those people that I hold dear that will become an even more intricate part of my life. We choose who and what is relevant to our present lives! Yes in some cases, I do have regrets over some words said or experiences had! I pray that my Father in heaven will steer me clear of those things, so that I will not revisit them again.

2010 is at hand. And I encourage you to take the time in the next few days to go through the process and allow the Holy Spirit to you to a grand entrance in 2010; removing those words said, wounds received—in both the natural and the spiritual. Allow the process of sorting through the good works and letting the Spirit show you those to continue, those to cast aside. Ah, even the possibility of new exciting opportunities to spring up. Let us be mindful and ever ready to fulfill the call He has for us in 2010.

Most of all I ask that the Holy One would put a fiery desire in us that would cause us to draw closer to Him.

To be sure footed is to be able to stand without the risk of slipping and falling. To be sure footed in Christ is to stand on the rock of your salvation and clothe yourself with His armor.

If we skate by in life we are subject to losing our footing and finding ourselves diverted from our journey with Christ..

If we devote ourselves to Jesus and his teachings and are open to our Father's love and direction, and then those outward deeds will be from and carried out in His love. Hence, we shall acquire our prize in heaven.

It has been raining here the past couple of days and I have taken notice of my footing. I love my Crocs. They are so comfy with or without socks. On most terrains I feel secure walking. Matter of fact I am so secure I just trot along in all types of weather. That is until the rain came! Dick found, from experience, that when the cement is wet one can actually make a split! Yup, that he did--a gracious split in the garage as he came in from the wet grass. As you can imagine that split was not a welcomed diversion.

So when it rains, I am more couscous of my footing and take precautions so I do not slip and fall.

In all we do seek, first the Kingdom of God and all else will be added to you! Don't skate by in life for your footing could cause a diversion that takes you away from the obtainable substance of our Father's "Love". So listen to Mathew 6:33 and seek first His kingdom and His righteousness, and all these things will be given to you as well.

Romans 14:7 Tells us that the kingdom of God is not a matter of eating and drinking, but of righteousness, peace and joy in the Holy Spirit. And you must know that you have the power spoken in 1 Corinthians 4:20: For the kingdom of God is not a matter of talk but of power.

Walking with the Son allows us to be sure footed here on earth. When the storms of life come we shall stay near our Lord's bosom so that we hear the instruction of safety.

There are many pathways in life to set our feet to. Make sure we are led by the Holy One. I pray we may all be sure-footed in Christ and not given to temptations or be blinded sided into a dark diversion!

1 Corinthians 15:58: Believers are exhorted to stand firm in the face of temptation and doubt, confident in what God has done for them.
