Treasures in the Darkness

The Promises of God are Yeah! And AMEN!-Yes and it is done!

"I will never leave you or forsake you"

"May you prosper as your soul prospers"

"I am your shelter and refuge in time of trouble"

"On the day of your salvation I heard you"

These are amongst the hundreds of promises God has for each of us. It is up to us to search them out and have them become personal to us. For me, it seems that it is when I am most troubled that I cling to His Word for myself and for the lives of others close to me. Then of course it is when we are in our darkest time of need that we are frantically running around searching for the Truth to cling to.

Ah, if we could only settle into His presence, because we know that His light will dispel the darkness. Spending time with the love of our soul is viable for our victory. Seek Him in all His ways and He will make Himself luminous to you. For in the Light there is NO darkness! (Light meaning our Lord's presence)

These words might be familiar to you or maybe not. To me there are experiences attached to those words which prove to me that the Lord keeps His promises. In the midst of emotions of anguish, despair, or confusion He comes in like a flood to refresh, to restore, and to rejuvenate my body mind and soul. Why? Because He loves me and He loves you. He is waiting to meet with you. Just you. So go to Him and bare it all. Go love on the one who loves you the most!

I had once told my husband Dick that I would live anywhere with him. We did not have much; the most valuable asset we had was each other. When I said that, I meant it. If we had each other, all would be well. For almost 26 years now it has been more than just fine. The Lord saw to it that we have been blessed beyond our loving relationship with each other. He has blessed us with family, friends, and yes material things as well.

Well we need to say that to the Lord. As long as we have Him we need nothing else. Do you know he feels the same with us? All He wants of us is us, just the way we are, in relationship with Him so tight that nothing else matters. Now you have guessed it. When you have that relationship with Him all else is added to you. More than Enough!

Ephesians 2:6
For he raised us from the dead along with Christ, and we are seated with him in the heavenly realms -- all because we are one with Christ Jesus.

It is all about perspective!

I remember when our son Tim first got his paper route. He was about 11 years old. Man that route appeared to him as a mountain he could NOT conquer. One perspective was to take it bit by bit, inch by inch. That was how to conquer this task that lay ahead. To see things in small pieces was one part of the answer. The other perspective was to know that he could do it.

Today, I can see myself as a new person with supernatural strength and supernatural knowledge and supernatural vision. Seated with Christ Jesus in high places and having the Holy Spirit living in me giving me all the supernatural qualities I need to accomplish my God given mission.

There was a time when I thought of myself as stupid, uninformed, incapable to succeed in life. Today I know I am an overcomer in Christ Jesus having the power and instruction of the Holy Spirit. I am the victor. So when I feel that I can NOT overcome something, I remember who lives in me that can.

Meditate on this:
All things are possible for those who believe!

Blessings, dianne

I Want More

Is it wrong to say: "I just want more"?

When growing up, we never asked for more to eat. We were given our portion and ate it. That was that! Then when I married and had children, I gave them their portions. They ate it and asked for more. There was always more than enough for them. 

At one time I might have thought it was not godly to ask God for more. More of what you may ask? More of anything that I perceived God had. Gee, I would think, He healed me, isn't that enough? No! He took away my nasty mouth and replaced words of sarcasm with words of love. Wasn't that enough? No! 

Then I would lay hands on the sick and watch the Holy Spirit enter in and see them recovered. Isn't that enough? No! I wanted to share what the Lord has done for me and expose the truths the Holy Spirit showed me. Was that enough? No! I could go on and on. I just don't seem to have enough love, enough power, enough gifts to give Him the glory. Never is there enough peace or revelation of Christ in my life.

I have come to understand that I am to remain hungry for more in my life and in the lives of others. I want more. I want more healings, signs and wonders, words of knowledge, and more inner healings to show as fruit in my life for the sake of the Gospel. 

The Holy Spirit had placed a burning flame within me in 1991 when He healed me from Crohn's disease that continues to grow larger and larger. The more I experience in the Lord, the more I want. The more I want, the more He exposes to me! There just isn't enough of God in me. There is not enough God in the world. I want more!

Lord I pray we all come to the place beyond ourselves and find ourselves leaning on your breast; just wanting more-more of you. If there is a promise, it is for us to see and crave! For you are like myself, giving us more because there is more than enough!
