The LORD - my Fortress and Lover of my Soul

In the first quarter of 2011 I spent quite a fair bit of my time allowing the thoughts of my mind and heart to meditate on what my soul needed in the Book of Psalm. The Lord showed Himself strong as my fortress and tower of strength, my refuge and hiding place, like what Ps 91 says "He who dwells in the secret place of the Most High shall abide under the shadow of the Almighty. I will say of the Lord, He is my refuge and my fortress; my God, in Him I will trust." In March I sat under the ministry of Patricia King, a woman of God who is filled with His everlasting love. In that meeting the Lord let me feel His love once again. Gave me His heart of love and said that I am to love people into their destinies. At this point of time, He also showed who they are, though in the natural there was no sign of it. It was only later I sort of understood and know why, and I gave myself to it.

The wonderful manifestations of Holy Spirit on our church on 7April 2011 was to me the love and assurance from my Lord that His ears had been wide open hearing the cries of our heart and His eyes were watching over us all. One of the first things I experienced in the presence of God was a joy deep inside me that flows out with some laughter (not so hilarious)! With it is also a peace where I was numb towards natural things that could otherwise greatly concerns my heart. It positions my heart and mind to see and feel many things from His perspective and that gave me good and right focus to move with Him. Smelling the sweet fragrance in one of the meetings was so..so..so...refreshing...it makes me want to take as many deep breaths as I possibly can, cos when I do I feel a gentle joy, peace and strength come into me, so much so it puts a smile on my face...the Lord is so beautiful!

He reminded me in a dream that in worship of Him with open heart and lifted hands, I am going to feel His presence and anointing and that He is always there for me to lean on Him as long as I would need. In another dream I was blindfolded but yet I could see very clearly, and a tall being is always with me. I thank Him for His personal love and promise to me. In the month of July the Lord showed in a dream that what we are tasting is just the beginning when I saw a big clock tower with the time 8.02. Eight in biblical numerical speaks of 'beginning'. Another thing that the Lord keeps bringing my attention to is Jeremiah 33:3 "Call to Me, and I will answer you, and show you great and mighty things, which you do not know". The word 'mighty' means 'isolated' or 'inaccessible'. When we call out to Him in prayer He will reveal things that would otherwise not be known. I want to give myself to partner with Him so His will as it is in His heart will be revealed here on earth. I believe you do too! The world and all the people in it needs Him and His intervention in all their affairs.

The Lord also revealed His mind and heart to me through several prophetic words and it was released to me during times when I needed to know. He knows so well everything about me and He just has His ways to speak to me. I am so aware that with prophecies there must also be a heart that is so willing to embrace it by saying 'Yes, Lord. Let it be to me according to Your word'.

By His grace, I desire to further grow in intimacy with the Lord, hear Him and do what I hear, see Him and do what I see. To know Him and make Him known. 'More of You Lord!'
