When You Listen to God

There is something special about receiving a message from the Father but it is even more special when you actually listen, hear the instruction, and comply with His Words. Today we broke ground on the first build site for the ministry. Before we broke ground we had a threat of rain storms but God held back the storm and it was a light drizzle before it stopped completely.

While it was drizzling we measured land while clearing the larger branches and felled trees to get a clear path and I asked if we could have just a little reprieve so we could measure correctly. We had a clear signal from the Father that this was a good day to clear and break ground so after measuring, we put the first official pick hoe and shovel into what will be the slab for the wood shop and storage area. And amazingly, the rain stopped.

Our prayer for sun was answered but only because we listened to God. All the weather stations said that it was going to storm but I listened to my prayer and had the feeling that He was saying do it anyway. While there we explored the land some more and started marking other areas. A new thought had come and we will be adding classroom buildings so that we can have multiple Bible study areas. All because we listened and felt as if He told us to open our eyes. The visual that the three of us were given had different parts but all interconnected.

When you listen to God, it is not always in the mind but in the eyes of the heart that open up what He needs you to see. The Spirit working within provides the visual to our minds so our physical eyes and ears see and hear His plans. God knows the plans He has for us and if you listen deep enough, even the small details will be revealed. Blessings and love to all,

Be Careful What You See

“The eye is the lamp of the body. So, if your eye is healthy, your whole body will be full of light, but if your eye is bad, your whole body will be full of darkness. If then the light in you is darkness, how great is the darkness! Matthew 6:22-23

We were given the gift of sight that is better than most animals who only see in the grey scale. Our eyes see a great many things, some close up, some far away. What we see has an effect on our entire body. If we see something that makes us laugh, our body forgets pain. If we see something sad, our body reacts in a way that competes against the sadness.

When we look upon something that we shouldn’t, our spirit works overtime to get the sight out of our minds. Our eyes are a window to our souls. People can tell a lot just by looking at another’s eyes. If we are in the spirit, our eyes tell of joy and peace even in the midst of sorrow. If we are being tempted, our eyes tell of shying away from seeing the good things and hide from those who we know the temptation would hurt if it were to become a sin.

If your right eye causes you to sin, tear it out and throw it away. For it is better that you lose one of your members than that your whole body be thrown into hell. Matthew 5:29

That seems a little drastic but Jesus said that to make a valid point. Flesh is nothing but mud and clay but the spirit inside lives forever. If we let ourselves be overtaken by the lusts of the flesh (worldly sin), then we are throwing away our chances of living eternally with God. The devil has used the media and politics to distract, misguide, and tempt all of us from the cradle to the grave. Right now so many are dependent on the media for ways of living that they forgot to open their eyes and ears to the people around them that could instruct without the distractions that come along with videos and television shows.  

I will ponder the way that is blameless. Oh when will you come to me? I will walk with integrity of heart within my house; I will not set before my eyes anything that is worthless. I hate the work of those who fall away; it shall not cling to me. A perverse heart shall be far from me; I will know nothing of evil. Psalm 101:2-4

I am reminded of the children’s song that Goes:

O be careful little eyes what you see
O be careful little eyes what you see
For the Father up above
is looking down in love
So, be careful little eyes what you see
O be careful little ears what you hear
O be careful little ears what you hear
For the Father up above
is looking down in love
So, be careful little ears what you hear
O be careful little tongue what you say
O be careful little tongue what you say
For the Father up above
is looking down in love
So, be careful little tongue what you say


The hearing ear and the seeing eye, the Lord has made them both Proverbs 20:12


God is watching, can you see what He is seeing. He is paying attention, do you know what is going on around you. He hears you, do you know what you are saying. We need to be careful and follow Christ’s example on how to live a right life. Blessings to you all

In Christ,
