My Time is Perfect

My Time is Perfect

My Listening Journals… I often wonder….what if my desire to listen to God equaled His longing to speak personally with me? Listening prayer for me is simply being still in God’s presence, anticipating His voice, recording His words, impressions, or pictures, and then responding in love, faith and obedience to what He whispers. It’s absolutely amazing — I always receive exactly what my heart is longing for — sweet companionship, fresh encouragement and specific guidance. I’m praying that this excerpt from my “Listening Journal” will encourage you to begin a practice of listening to God. Debbie


My Time Is Perfect
Song of Solomon “don’t waken love until the right time”
Right time – My time is always perfect. I see the end from the beginning – I am the Alpha and Omega, the beginning and the end. My purposes and plans stand secure – nothing can thwart My ways.
I have designed you with a passion for My Word.  A desire has been placed in your heart to listen/obey… keep listening. Then and only then will you be confident.  My time is the right time to do whatever I’m asking you to do.
I make no mistakes
My timing is perfect
I go before and after and place My hand of blessing on you
Listen with your ears and eyes
Listen intently
Listen regularly
Listen with your heart
Listen means waiting
being still and silent
eager to hear My voice
being in My presence
anticipating Me to speak
Do not be afraid for I am with you. I have wired you, fashioned you, created you for My glory. You will only be used to bring glory to Me – not yourself.
I know the plans I have for you – to stretch you, to use you, to multiply you. Let Me do it, let Me guide you, let Me tutor you, let Me bring people and platforms to you along with places of quiet rest.
Don’t worry yourself with the how, when, why, what… focus on Me – the WHO. I will take care of the rest – in fact I delight in, long to have full freedom and permission to do all for you.
I am the Vine – you are just one branch… but as you abide in Me – I will flow through you by faith and bear My fruit through You – to feed the multitudes.
It’s not up to you to carry out, figure out how I am going to fulfill the Vision I gave you – you can’t begin to figure it out – that’s why I chose you. I see your heart. Heart of simple faith and obedience…
whatever Lord
whenever Lord
however Lord
wherever Lord
why-ever Lord
to whomever Lord
“not my will but Thine be done”
“Thy kingdom come, Thy will be done on earth (through My little branch) as it is in heaven”
“be it done to me according to Your will”
“Yes, Lord… here I am. Send me.”
“Speak, Lord, for Thy servant heareth”
“At Your word, bidding me cast out the nets”
“For such a time as this”
Continue to embrace your life, family, and the women I’ve given you to minister to, those I bring to you. You don’t have to seek it out → I will bring those to you who need to be nourished and refreshed by My fruit, living water, and bread.
Don’t hold tightly to what I’ve given you, how I’ve wired you – don’t compare yourself with any other speaker, teacher, or writer. I have My unique plan and purpose for you – remember I don’t need you – but I want to use you;
bear fruit through you
flow My living water through you
feed the multitudes through My bread baked and broken through you
I am the bread of life
I am the living water
I am the Vine – you are the branch… fruit is My doing as you abide and extend out your branch to hang the fruit on…
You have been faithful with a few – now stand back and see what only I can do. “Well done good and faithful servant.” These loaves and fishes in My hands will feed the masses, the world.
Fear not – Doubt not – Plan not
“Faithful is He (that’s Me – the Almighty, Creator God) who calls… and He (Me) – who will bring it to pass.”
I delight in using the ordinary. I delight in you – don’t be afraid to write it, receive it, and share it. My gift to you.
Let it flow
Let it challenge you
Let it stretch you
Let it strengthen you
Let it satisfy you
Let it go – don’t try to control (by your fears, doubts, inadequacies) what only I have in My eternal plans to birth, flow, and share through you, My daughter, My delight.
