“FATHER… THIS ONE IS MINE!”

10 Teach me to do Your will,
For You are my God;
Let Your good Spirit lead me on level ground.

11 For the sake of Your name, O Lord, revive me.
[Psalm 143]

As I stood in worship [years ago now], I heard a call to the altar.  And not just to the altar, but to Jesus who stood in the window at the altar.  I thought… “If I could only touch the hem of Your robe Lord, everything would be well with me.”

And then He said… “Come to Me!”

So I advanced… passed the other worshippers, the onlookers, and the others seeking prayer or a word at the altar… to the One who stands at the altar.  “If I could only touch the hem of Your robe Lord, everything would be well with me.”

“I have arrived Lord, “Thank You”, I made it… passed the other worshippers, the onlookers, and the seekers… to You.   I’m here Lord, WHAT now?”

As soon as those words left me, I remembered my purpose at the altar and I touched Him.  The brilliant blue of His robe was so royal and majestic to me.  With a soaked in desperate prayer face, I began to pour out all that I had until I reached the end of me, and then…

Oh my God please~ tell me plainly Who am I & Why am I here? What can I say & what can I do that could possibly hold a candle to You? Where can I go & How do I get there? Oh my God, I am wrecked every time I hear another speak of a salvation date…  with not one to call my own; or a great commission for ministry… with no place that feels like home; or a visible journey with You Jesus that is witnessed for all to see… with no one who cares to testify, the company of You with me.

How can I really be Yours Lord without answer to all of these?

And as if I was looking upon Jesus for the very first time… I saw my window of Him, ALIVE!  He was standing there holding tightly the lamb [“It’s me!”] in His arms.  The lamb is holding fast to her gaze upon Jesus… listening, warm, & secure.  And as if a parent to a child, I heard somewhere from inside~

“I am not going to let you down no matter how loud you yell, how much you squirm, or what you do!”  His eyes purposely shut in an instant and I heard Words that still delight, warm, and secure my heart to this day…

“FATHER… this one is MINE!  I love her!”

I was immediately overwhelmed [in a great way] by His presence, His love, His promise!  And I was taken back to a time [somewhere around age 8] when I would so pray…

“Now I lay me down to sleep, I pray the LORD my soul to KEEP… “

And I realized that it has been for all this time… that I was HIS!

And now~

Even with all the enemy’s whispers in my ears telling me I couldn’t possibly be the Father’s because I am that bad, that unworthy, and having no official date with God to hold onto…

~ I am known with JESUS and I KNOW Whose child I am!

And now~

As I look upon my window where Jesus stands at the altar, I gaze into His eyes and I hold tightly what the Lord my God has given me and I proclaim…

~ “FATHER this ONE is mine.  I love HIM!”

For today, my prayer…

Psalm 143 (NASB)
Prayer for Deliverance and Guidance.
A Psalm of David.

1Hear my prayer, O Lord,
Give ear to my supplications!
Answer me in Your faithfulness, in Your righteousness!
2 And do not enter into judgment with Your servant,
For in Your sight no man living is righteous.
3 For the enemy has persecuted my soul;
He has crushed my life to the ground;
He has made me dwell in dark places, like those who have long been dead.
4 Therefore my spirit is overwhelmed within me;
My heart is appalled within me.

5 I remember the days of old;
I meditate on all Your doings;
I muse on the work of Your hands.
6 I stretch out my hands to You;
My soul longs for You, as a parched land. Selah.

7 Answer me quickly, O Lord, my spirit fails;
Do not hide Your face from me,
Or I will become like those who go down to the pit.
8 Let me hear Your lovingkindness in the morning;
For I trust in You;
Teach me the way in which I should walk;
For to You I lift up my soul.
9 Deliver me, O Lord, from my enemies;
I take refuge in You.

10 Teach me to do Your will,
For You are my God;
Let Your good Spirit lead me on level ground.
11 For the sake of Your name, O Lord, revive me.
In Your righteousness bring my soul out of trouble.
12 And in Your lovingkindness, cut off my enemies
And destroy all those who afflict my soul,
For I am Your servant.

    Oh Julie I love this one too! Jesus told you,
    “I am not going to let you down no matter how loud you yell, how much you squirm, or what you do!”

    I Can tell you what you official date was honest it is written in the Bible

    You were in the Mind of the Father ‘before’ the foundation of the world!’

    That’s it its over. He knew you before you knew you! He had you in his heart before you had a heart. And every sin ever in your life was forgiven before you were even born! Hows that for a revelation. So you can live in peace. Flop down on the couch and melt in His arms, you have no need of performance.

    So when the Devil come , Just smile and turn away from him, he’ll shake and get scared and soon He will try some other way to pick at you but it wont be this one any more.

      Hubert… you are a mighty man of faith. You walk in God’s promises with The Truth as your sword. Thank you for your words of wisdom [& revelation]… they are a blessing to me.

      The Lord has impressed me often with… “Stop striving & breathe Me!” “I love you so much, let Me!” “It’s not about you, it’s about Me… I AM GRACE!” “I AM the God of restoration, I AM the God of healing, I AM GOD!” and, and, and. People could look at my life at present & say “Where is your God now?”, but I say with a confidence in Christ… “I LIVE EXTRAVAGANTLY WHERE IT MATTERS MOST [WITH JESUS]!”

      So my friend… FOR YOU I pray for healing, I pray for discernment, I pray for extravagance in His blessings… because God’s best days and mighty missions [FOR YOU] are ahead of you. IN “JESUS” NAME I PRAY! AMEN!

      • sharpword says:

        LOL! I heard that! thank you!

        But Julie! Do you KNOW this???

        Listen to this!

        You, Julie can sit,and do nothing at all, even for Jesus, and IT IS ENOUGH!!

        I know you already you knock yourself out, and down, wear yourself out,and down, for him, and you don’t know that “YOU’ are trying to prove your love to Him while He is trying to pull you down onto the couch just sit beside him and cuddle!

        LV Hu :) BTW I’m a pooch not mighty at all

        • jams4JESUS says:

          Hubert… I can’t get much passed you now can I? You are right though, I am probably not done squirming. ;) I do long to rest with Him & I so love to cuddle, but for now… I think I’ll dance. :)

          [I thought all who carry The Sword (with Him) to be a "valiant warrior"... you are no exception.] ;)

          • sharpword says:

            No-no I’m a wimp who wants to cuddle, but cant,I wish I could. My word from the Lord for he last several years is REST!! And every now and then He comes and tells me, when I am down and wiped out, You didn’t rest yet!

            A-a-a-n-n-n–d-d-d I see that ewe are the same kinda sheep
