God uses the weak and the submitted

To: The least of these who are Mine
To: My sheep who hear My Voice and follow Me, and have been given much in this world
“Get your mind off things,
Get your mind on God.
The devil puts chains on you;
Only God can take them off.”
Prophetic song given by a 3 year old child in 1998
God uses the weak things… to confound the wise: He glorifies His Name through the disabled and ill and those who are oppressed.
My precious ones, who suffer physically, mentally, emotionally in this world, I am El Roi Who sees you, I will repay those who add to your afflictions, you forgive them and let Me be your Vindication on the day that I set a table before Mine in the presence of their enemies, and cause their cup to overflow.
You who are alone, rejected, abused, wounded, oppressed, afflicted, acquainted with sorrow… know that I understand. Here is how the world and the religious hypocrites treated Me:
Isaiah 53: 1-8
1Who hath believed our report? and to whom is the arm of the LORD revealed?
2For he shall grow up before him as a tender plant, and as a root out of a dry ground: he hath no form nor comeliness; and when we shall see him, there is no beauty that we should desire him.
3He is despised and rejected of men; a man of sorrows, and acquainted with grief: and we hid as it were our faces from him; he was despised, and we esteemed him not.
4Surely he hath borne our griefs, and carried our sorrows: yet we did esteem him stricken, smitten of God, and afflicted.
5But he was wounded for our transgressions, he was bruised for our iniquities: the chastisement of our peace was upon him; and with his stripes we are healed.
6All we like sheep have gone astray; we have turned every one to his own way; and the LORD hath laid on him the iniquity of us all.
7He was oppressed, and he was afflicted, yet he opened not his mouth: he is brought as a lamb to the slaughter, and as a sheep before her shearers is dumb, so he openeth not his mouth.
8He was taken from prison and from judgment: and who shall declare his generation? for he was cut off out of the land of the living: for the transgression of my people was he stricken.
Do not regard your dis-ability, whatever it is, as a curse from Me. Did I not say that I use the weak things of this world, to confound those who pride in their flesh? I gain much glory when the poor, weak, and despised of the world seek Me and are found by Me.
I used a man’s blindness to bring glory to Myself and witness to all of My goodness:
1 And as Jesus passed by, he saw a man which was blind from his birth.
2 And his disciples asked him, saying, Master, who did sin, this man, or his parents, that he was born blind?
3 Jesus answered, Neither hath this man sinned, nor his parents: but that the works of God should be made manifest in him.
Have you not heard about how, when anyone, including you, least of these in the world, die to self and humble before Me…and when Word abides in you and you abide in My Word, how I gain glory when you read My Word and ask Me to teach you, I will flow out of you to those around you. Have you heard of My servant Joni Eareckson Tada? A diving accident caused her to become a paraplegic in her teen years. Eventually, she surrendered all to Me and abided in Me and I did wonderous things through her for My glory. Have you heard of My servant, Nick Vujicic? He has no limbs but through Me he overcame much and he gives Me glory. I am near to you, I see your affliction. I am your everything, your El Chaiyai as you lean on My strength. See what ABILITY you can have IN Me!! Taste and see that I AM good!
I want to work out of you (anyone who will ask that My will, not theirs, be done) also, to draw people to My salvation. I want you to experience My fruit: The perfect Love that defeats fear, My Peace that you have no matter what your circumstance, My joy which is your strength… and much more. And I want you to bear My fruit so that the world will see it and desire to know Me.
Remember the faith of the gentile woman who had a daughter with a demon in Matthew 25. The disciples wanted to send her away. But she pressed in. She called to Jesus, but He didn’t answer right away. She did not give up but kept asking, seeking, knocking. She worshiped Jesus and asked for His help. When He replied that she was of the dogs, she humbled herself and agreed …and then proclaimed the character of God: that He has mercy on those who call upon Him. The disciples heard a gentile declare God’s Lovingkindness to all who were there. Jesus praised her faith and she was given what she asked for.
I wept for My people who refused to come to Me and abide in Word. I want to hide you under My wing, come to Me. I have a good plan for you, no matter what circumstance you are in. In your weakness, I am shown strong.
***Personal story: Once I (Sarah) took care of a lady who had lost everything the world says is important. She had just finished college and had gotten married when MS began to cripple her. She lost her potential career, her husband left her, and her elderly parents took her in. Her struggle was difficult, as all trials are, but she was not ashamed to proclaim Jesus to all who cared for her and visited her. She volunteered to fold fliers at church when her hands still worked. After that, as her body slowly, painfully shut down, she abided in Word and Word flowed out of her. The fact that she could smile and declare the goodness of The Lord caused me to repent of ever complaining about my problems. I was humbled and drawn closer to Jesus because He worked through a woman with a crippled body***
To All: Jesus and Holy Spirit intercede for us, be encouraged!!
To: My wealthy, healthy, comforted saints:
sometimes you take for granted that I gave to you all that you have and that My gifts are to be shared with those who have less than you. You have been given much: ability to acquire wealth, ability to see, family and friends who love you…you have a great opportunity to, with Me making My abode in you to gain treasure in Heaven and to hear Me commend you for caring for Me physically , emotionally, and spiritually…
Isaiah 58 shows the fast that I prefer. Rend your hearts, and repent of your sin. Do works as I direct that show repentance. The righteous do righteousness, the unrighteous do unrighteousness… discern the fruit
6 Is not this the fast that I have chosen? to loose the bands of wickedness, to undo the heavy burdens, and to let the oppressed go free, and that ye break every yoke?
7Is it not to deal thy bread to the hungry, and that thou bring the poor that are cast out to thy house? when thou seest the naked, that thou cover him; and that thou hide not thyself from thine own flesh?
8Then shall thy light break forth as the morning, and thine health shall spring forth speedily: and thy righteousness shall go before thee; the glory of the LORD shall be thy rereward.
9Then shalt thou call, and the LORD shall answer; thou shalt cry, and he shall say, Here I am. If thou take away from the midst of thee the yoke, the putting forth of the finger, and speaking vanity;
10And if thou draw out thy soul to the hungry, and satisfy the afflicted soul; then shall thy light rise in obscurity, and thy darkness be as the noonday:
11And the LORD shall guide thee continually, and satisfy thy soul in drought, and make fat thy bones: and thou shalt be like a watered garden, and like a spring of water, whose waters fail not.
Here is the reward of My sheep with whom I sup, who let Me do My works through them, for Father’s glory:
Matthew 15: 31-46
31 When the Son of man shall come in his glory, and all the holy angels with him, then shall he sit upon the throne of his glory:
32 And before him shall be gathered all nations: and he shall separate them one from another, as a shepherd divideth his sheep from the goats:
33 And he shall set the sheep on his right hand, but the goats on the left.
34 Then shall the King say unto them on his right hand, Come, ye blessed of my Father, inherit the kingdom prepared for you from the foundation of the world:
35 For I was an hungred, and ye gave me meat: I was thirsty, and ye gave me drink: I was a stranger, and ye took me in:
36 Naked, and ye clothed me: I was sick, and ye visited me: I was in prison, and ye came unto me.
37 Then shall the righteous answer him, saying, Lord, when saw we thee an hungred, and fed thee? or thirsty, and gave thee drink?
38 When saw we thee a stranger, and took thee in? or naked, and clothed thee?
39 Or when saw we thee sick, or in prison, and came unto thee?
40 And the King shall answer and say unto them, Verily I say unto you, Inasmuch as ye have done it unto one of the least of these my brethren, ye have done it unto me.
41 Then shall he say also unto them on the left hand, Depart from me, ye cursed, into everlasting fire, prepared for the devil and his angels:
42 For I was an hungred, and ye gave me no meat: I was thirsty, and ye gave me no drink:
43 I was a stranger, and ye took me not in: naked, and ye clothed me not: sick, and in prison, and ye visited me not.
44 Then shall they also answer him, saying, Lord, when saw we thee an hungred, or athirst, or a stranger, or naked, or sick, or in prison, and did not minister unto thee?
45 Then shall he answer them, saying, Verily I say unto you, Inasmuch as ye did it not to one of the least of these, ye did it not to me.
46 And these shall go away into everlasting punishment: but the righteous into life eternal.
Human works mean nothing. Works done without ME and My Holy Spirit Fruit of Love mean nothing. I do not share My glory. I invite My sheep to work with Me to accomplish My will on earth. Do I NEED to use people? No, I have already gained the victory Myself. But you have the privilege offered to you to run with Me, to allow My Spirit to wisk you away to place you where I need you to be. Would you even have faith for this kind of thing?
I love you, I AM LOVE…not as the world gives, the carnal mind cannot know My Spirit’s fruit. You will enjoy the fruit yourself…the joy that I give is your strength…the peace that I give surpasses understanding…if Word abides in you and you in Me, you will have My peace no matter what you suffer for My Name’s sake. Was I not in the fire with Daniels’ friends? They felt no pain, they did not even smell like smoke. This is how thoroughly I do things. Have the faith in Me that they had. Humble all that you ‘love’ and give it all to Me for My use, including your SELF…and you will know MY Love, and My Fruit will be borne out of those who abide in Me, The Vine. The Husbandman, My Father, will prune away all that which will not allow you to bear His fruit. Submit to this, and bear much fruit for His glory.
Eye has not seen, nor ear heard, the wonderous things I have prepared for those who love (obey) Me! Soon, My sheep, soon you will enjoy your reward in Me!
