Perfect Contentment

Published August 16, 2017 by birdieklh

When I saw this photo, memories came flooding back into my innermost being of sheer, contentment . . . times spent up in the mountains (I grew up in California) and absolutely LOVED the those mountain hikes.

Cool, fresh mountain air permeating my being, refreshing my lungs, seemingly pumping my heart with newness of life. Of course it wasn’t, but it felt like it. The crispness of the water, oh, how I loved every single moment of it. The twill of the birds singing, the whisper of the leaves as they rustled in the light movement of the breeze. I could spend hours sitting on the rocks in contemplation of the beauty of it all….sheer….wonderful….

CONTENTMENT!

There are many times in the busy “ness” (or “mess”) of our lives that we wish we could stop everything and escape into a place where we could sit somewhere quiet and gaze into a crystal clear lake or pond like this, look at the reflection of the surroundings and contemplate what we see . . . instead of what actually IS around us at present . . . things that must be done, chaos, bills, noise, relationships, obligations, medical issues, etc. it seems impossible to even consider being able to reach such a place of contentment . . . BUT . . . notice this whole time I’ve been talking about contentment in the ‘natural’. It is a nice thing, truly a very nice thing, and I treasure the memories! Don’t get me wrong. In fact, if offered a vacation to go back to one of those places, you bet I’d jump on it! However, I have a secret I wish to share with you that is far greater than this natural contentment of a mountain scene like described here in my memories! It is one that is OBTAINABLE for us today, right here, whenever you desire!!! …and it is a PERFECT CONTENTMENT!!!!!

“Okay, already!” I can hear you from this side of the page, “Tell me where it is!!!”

It is found only ONE place . . . in your close intimate times of worship with the Lord!!! Yes! When you shut yourself away and focus all your attention on Him – you totally immerse yourself in His presence – worship Him in spirit in truth – from the depth of your being. Surround yourself with the essence of His glory!

You don’t know how? You have never done that before? It is not that hard, once you have done it, you find it easier and easier to do – it can become the most enjoyable part of your day!!! In fact, it has become such a part of my life that my office space in my home has become a sanctuary of His presence – people often comment that they can “feel” the difference when they step through the door! Even when I am working on things, I sometimes have difficulty focusing on what I’m working on because I find myself a wee bit lost in His presence and having to shake myself back into the earthly realm to get earthly work accomplished (much to my chagrin). You see, dear ones, there is NOTHING like the glorious presence of God Almighty! There is pure love, pure grace pure anointing, pure power, pure & PERFECT CONTENTMENT! It is there we receive everything we need for life and godliness (2 Peter 1:3),  peace (Psalm 119:165), guidance & direction (Psalm 119:105), protection (Psalm 91), hope (Jeremiah 29:11) and so much more!

I try to have worship music always going in the background . . . when not working I use something I can sing along with – when I’m working I use instrumental so the atmosphere is permeated with praise offered up before the Throne of God . . . it keeps my spirit in the mode of worship at all times . . .  my preference is ‘Soaking Worship Music’ like we use at our local Tabernacle House of Prayer based upon David’s Tabernacle – 24/7 worship offered up to the Lord – keeping the fire on the altar day and night – honoring God at all times for Who He IS. I have found that the more consistent I am in my own personal worship (and with our corporate worship times) the deeper I go into His presence, the richer my relationship becomes with my Lord and the easier it is for me to HEAR Holy Spirit when He speaks to my heart! the richer my contentment in Him becomes!!!!

I invite you to enter in . . . to find your place in His Perfect Contentment that He has for you!!!!!

Lost and Found Department

Do you ever find yourself standing still, looking up at the crossroads of “Lost” and “Found” and wonder which one you are really on? They run against one another, but they do intersect often (or so it seems in my life).

In the natural, I’m always ‘misplacing’ (loosing) things . . . perhaps you can relate:

Cell phone

Thumb drive

Keys

Eyeglasses

Shopping list

Something I purchased

. . . the list can go on and on and on . . . oh, I KNOW they are around – somewhere – but I can’t put my hands on them at the moment I need/want them.

Anyway, I digress.

We can not always readily get a hold of things we want but we can ALWAYS rest assured and be at peace with the ‘found’ department that we have full access to anytime day or night for our spiritual needs! Glory to God!!!

He is as close as the whisper of His Name!

His heart towards us is always ‘yes’ and ‘amen’ (2 Corinthians 1:20)!

His desire for us is a ‘hope and a future’ (Jeremiah 29:11)!

When we take up the position of praise . . . the position of worship . . . the position of the branches CONNECTED to The Vine (John 15). . . we are never ever lost!

Here’s how it can work for you (it works for me and countless others I know)!

  • surrounded by chaos? . . . let His peace be released in your situation dove in flight
  • faced with a bad report (job, personal, medical, financial)? . . . let His peace be released in your situation
  • uncertainties overwhelming you about the things are coming at you and decisions that you must make? . . .  let His peace be released in your situation.
  • too many distractions in your life just now? Get your worship on and allow His peace to be released in your situation!

Am I talking about a change of attitude? Something you need to say or do differently? Well, yes and no . . . it is an internal issue, not an external thing. His peace, that passes ALL understanding is what we must allow to guard our heart and mind (Philippians 2:7)! Only in Him and through Him can we walk in complete victory. He sent His Holy Spirit to indwell our very being and to give us everything we need for this life we now live (2 Peter 1:3).

Dear ones, learn to cast all your cares upon Him, and simply TRUST Him with every single aspect of your life . . . no one loves and cares for you more than He does!

Nothing Like His Presence

Listening to some relaxing, soft, wonderful “peaceful moments of worship” (playing below) – soaking in His presence – basking in His Love . . . Oh, what a precious, beautiful Savior!

Here in San Antonio (and all over the globe) God has begun to raise up/rebuild the Temple of Praise (the tabernacle of David, spoken about in Revelation 3:7 “To the angel of the church in Philadelphia write: These are the words of him who is holy and true, who holds the key of David. What he opens no one can shut, and what he shuts no one can open.” – The KEY David had was the tabernacle he established – with worship going forth around the clock – the result of this was PEACE and PROTECTION in the land! Apostle Rune Brannstrom shares this in full detail in his book “The Secrets of King David Unveiled” you may sample a free chapter here.

Getting back to what is happening in San Antonio right now – there are several places where churches have held a “Burn” and have not stopped . . . such an example is our very own SA Tabernacle of which I feel so blessed to be a part of, not only through the Nehemiah Initiative (which I’m a member) but also as a worshiper. Being a part of 24/7 worship/praise/The Word/and prayer is one of the most incredible and rewarding things I’ve ever done. Folks – it is not only here, but all over – the Spirit is moving . . . the fire has begun . . . may it continue to burn brightly . . . for the saving of souls and for the declaration over this city, state, nation and globe, that Jesus Christ IS Lord and that our Elohim, our Abba Father IS creator of all things. May His power fall, His glory rest upon us and His praises resound!

A Different Perspective

When I was a child I dreamed of being loved and accepted.

As I became a teenager, I found The One who loved me, unconditionally – Jesus Christ.

As I grew into a young lady I had a dream of helping to change the world . . . creating a place where people could come and learn how to deepen their relationship with Christ and be trained up to go out and help me accomplish my dream (the command Jesus Himself gave us – to go out). A place for discipleship – worship – prayer – hearts united with one purpose – loving and serving their God – 24/7.

As I grew into womanhood, those dreams somehow landed on a back shelf somewhere.

Yesterday I had the privilege of seeing it happening . . . oh, it was not MY dream, not MY project, not MY doing, but it WAS the vision (dream) God had placed within my spirit all those many years ago.

With excitement welling up inside of my innermost being, bubbling up and out to these ‘youngsters’ 🙂 with their piercings, tattoos, color streaks in their hair . . . God gave me a different perspective . . . He had given me that dream (vision) of THIS TIME . . . NOW . . . but He is having me to be in the role of intercessor over this movement – as a Spiritual “Mom” to this generation (maybe even grandmother to some). After all, I’ve prayed over this dream for decades now . . . the fruit is about to start falling . . . what an awesome thing!

Dear ones, we need to be alert – be ready – be in constant prayer over the work God is doing now in these end times . . . His Glory is beginning to EXPLODE all around us . . . He is raising up a mighty army and each one of us has his/her place. Sometimes we need a different perspective if we are to truly see ‘HOW’ God is birthing our dreams into being.

Abba Father, I glorify YOU!!! I give YOU praise! I honor YOU! Thank You for allowing me to not only ‘see’ but to still be a part of this work You are doing. Thank You for bringing up this POWERFUL generation, so on fire for You and their desire to live and completely be saturated in Your presence every day – sharing what You pour out on them to others around them – changing cities, nations, the world! Bless YOU, Lord!!! Amen
