The Reward Giver

The Lord woke me up out of a dead sleep today.. and Holy Spirit spoke His precious word to my heart... saying.. "Angela, without faith it is impossible to please me... but I am a Rewarder to those who diligently seek me.." So... I, of course had to run to the Word and look it up...

      Hebrews 11:6 But without faith it is impossible to please Him; for He that cometh to God must believe that He is, and that He is a Rewarder of them that diligently seek Him."

 Diligently- constant in effort to accomplish something; attentive. persistent.

 WOW. Am I seeking Him with all diligence? He is a Rewarder.

 Matt 7:11 If ye then, being evil (sinful), know how to give good gifts unto your children, how much more shall your Father which is in heaven give good things to them that ask him?

 There have been some pretty hard things that have happen the last few months.. that have literally crushed my spirit.. and caused me to spiral down into feeling sorry for myself. And isn't that exactly where the enemy wants us?
 I was listening to things like.."you are a horrible mother, friend, sister, wife." "God cant use you." "People don't want you, what makes you think God wants you?"
Have you ever heard these things?   Maybe not exactly verbatim.   But some what similar?
Well my dear brother or sister.. THE DEVIL IS A LIAR!
 If you are hearing these things and not moving spiritually then you are where I was. Its time to believe the WORD.. claim them, rebuke satan.. and get out of the pit that he had made for you.!!!!
Lets start seeking GOD with our whole heart!!! GOD Has created you to be HIS beautiful child.. to use you for His glory!!!    He wants to pour out His blessings on you!!!! He wants to pour into you.. more of HIMSELF! (THE WORD)

    John 15:11 These things have I spoken unto you, that my Joy might remain in you, and that your Joy might be full.

 I recently was in Genesis 15:1 a verse I have over looked many times.. because I'm trying to "read the bible through in a year." But let me tell you these words jumped off the page into my heart the other day!!! 

    Genesis 15:1 After these things the Word of the Lord came unto Abram in a vision saying, Fear Not, Abram, I AM they shield, and thy EXCEEDING GREAT REWARD!"

 There's that word again... REWARD!!!!!!....HIM... GOD THE FATHER!!!! HE IS OUR REWARD!!!! 



Lord.. forgive me.. forgive me for always looking inwardly at my problems.. for not looking to You, CONSTANT.. my EXCEEDING GREAT REWARD, My Comforter... MY JOY.. MY GOD!!! Help me to remember that only You can satisfy my heart.. that nothing in this world could or ever will satisfy my soul. ONLY YOU. Lord, I praise You.. for showing me what You have today in Your Word.. may it do what it was meant to accomplish in me.. and may YOU ONLY BE GLORIFIED... in JESUS NAME.... I praise You .... Amen.

Lord you have spoken so clear to me today!! :) I stay amazed at you! All I can say is WOW!!
God knows I am such a visual learner...and simple minded at times.. and today I was awaken by His presence.
He spoke to me and led me into the kitchen. He had me grab a glass from the cabinet and place it in the empty sink under the faucet. He said "Angela you see this vessel is empty?" "Yes Lord" "Its not being used for its purpose?" "Yes Lord." Then He said to me "turn on the faucet..." I didn't even question.. but usually I am always asking "WHY?" but today was different with my free will I "obeyed" and turned it on.
I began to weep because you see the cup was empty, it was dry inside and out.. UNTIL the faucet of water poured itself into the cup filling it up til overflowing getting every thing around it wet! I was so astounded at what I was was so simple yet sooooo profound!!
I noticed that the only thing moving at this point was the water... the vessel was "still" allowing the water to fill it up.. it was "dead" the only thing it was doing was being still for the Water to fill it up.
Now.. I hear the Father say to me..."Pick up the vessel" I began to cry even more as I reach for the cup...There is no where getting around being splattered or touched by the water...The closer and closer my hand gets to the cup.... my hand gets WET!!!  Then as I am seeing this I hear the Lord ask me... "What is moving?" With tears... I see the only thing moving at this point is the WATER... The cup is still.. and the closer I get to the cup... ITS NOT THE CUP that is touching me.. ITS THE WATER!!!!

THANK YOU LORD for THIS VISUAL!!!  IF WE want to be a TRUE EFFECTIVE WITNESS for the KINGDOM.....and IF we want others to be TOUCHED by the LIVING WATER when they get CLOSE TO US... we must allow HIM TO FILL US UP.. WE MUST STAY UNDER THE FAUCET of the HOLY SPIRIT.. (THE WORD)

"As the hart pants after the water brooks, so pants my soul after you, O God. My soul thirsteth for God, for the living God: when shall I come and appear before God?" -Psalms 42:1-2

We can NOT be an effect for Him if we don't turn on the faucet..(OPEN UP THE WORD)  I ask you friend.... TRY IT... . I know it seems silly...... but I ask you to do it.. and let Him speak to you today!! :)

The Word of God on Sinning in Secret.....

Numbers 32:23

23 But if ye will not do so, behold, ye have sinned against the LORD: and be sure your sin will find you out.

Job 34:21-27

21 For his eyes are upon the ways of man, and he seeth all his goings. 22 There is no darkness, nor shadow of death, where the workers of iniquity may hide themselves. 23 For he will not lay upon man more than right; that he should enter into judgment with God. 24 He shall break in pieces mighty men without number, and set others in their stead. 25 Therefore he knoweth their works, and he overturneth them in the night, so that they are destroyed. 26 He striketh them as wicked men in the open sight of others; 27 Because they turned back from him, and would not consider any of his ways:

Ecclesiastes 12:14

14 For God shall bring every work into judgment, with every secret thing, whether it be good, or whether it be evil.

Isaiah 29:15-16

15 Woe unto them that seek deep to hide their counsel from the LORD, and their works are in the dark, and they say, Who seeth us? and who knoweth us? 16 Surely your turning of things upside down shall be esteemed as the potter’s clay: for shall the work say of him that made it, He made me not? or shall the thing framed say of him that framed it, He had no understanding?

Hebrews 4:12-13

12 For the word of God is quick, and powerful, and sharper than any two edged sword, piercing even to the dividing asunder of soul and spirit, and of the joints and marrow, and is a discerner of the thoughts and intents of the heart. 13 Neither is there any creature that is not manifest in his sight: but all things are naked and opened unto the eyes of him with whom we have to do.

Psalm 94:11

11 The LORD knoweth the thoughts of man, that they are vanity.

Psalm 139:1-6

O LORD, thou hast searched me, and known me. 2 Thou knowest my downsitting and mine uprising, thou understandest my thought afar off. 3 Thou compassest my path and my lying down, and art acquainted with all my ways. 4 For there is not a word in my tongue, but, lo, O LORD, thou knowest it altogether. 5 Thou hast beset me behind and before, and laid thine hand upon me. 6 Such knowledge is too wonderful for me; it is high, I cannot attain unto it.

Ecclesiastes 10:20

20 Curse not the king, no not in thy thought; and curse not the rich in thy bedchamber: for a bird of the air shall carry the voice, and that which hath wings shall tell the matter.

Luke 8:17

17 For nothing is secret, that shall not be made manifest; neither any thing hid, that shall not be known and come abroad.

Luke 12:2-3

2 For there is nothing covered, that shall not be revealed; neither hid, that shall not be known. 3 Therefore whatsoever ye have spoken in darkness shall be heard in the light; and that which ye have spoken in the ear in closets shall be proclaimed upon the housetops.

Ephesians 1:9-11

9 Having made known unto us the mystery of his will, according to his good pleasure which he hath purposed in himself: 10 That in the dispensation of the fulness of times he might gather together in one all things in Christ, both which are in heaven, and which are on earth; even in him: 11 In whom also we have obtained an inheritance, being predestinated according to the purpose of him who worketh all things after the counsel of his own will:

Zephaniah 1:1-18

The word of the LORD which came unto Zephaniah the son of Cushi, the son of Gedaliah, the son of Amariah, the son of Hizkiah, in the days of Josiah the son of Amon, king of Judah. 2 I will utterly consume all things from off the land, saith the LORD. 3 I will consume man and beast; I will consume the fowls of the heaven, and the fishes of the sea, and the stumblingblocks with the wicked; and I will cut off man from off the land, saith the LORD. 4 I will also stretch out mine hand upon Judah, and upon all the inhabitants of Jerusalem; and I will cut off the remnant of Baal from this place, and the name of the Chemarims with the priests; 5 And them that worship the host of heaven upon the housetops; and them that worship and that swear by the LORD, and that swear by Malcham; 6 And them that are turned back from the LORD; and those that have not sought the LORD, nor enquired for him. 7 Hold thy peace at the presence of the Lord GOD: for the day of the LORD is at hand: for the LORD hath prepared a sacrifice, he hath bid his guests. 8 And it shall come to pass in the day of the LORD’S sacrifice, that I will punish the princes, and the king’s children, and all such are clothed with strange apparrel. 9 In the same day also will I punish all those that leap on the threshold, which fill their masters’ houses with violence and deceit. 10 And it shall come to pass in that day, saith the LORD, that there shall be the noise of a cry from the fish gate, and an howling from the second, and a great crashing from the hills. 11 Howl, ye inhabitants of Maktesh, for all the merchant people are cut down; all they that bear silver are cut off. 12 And it shall come to pass at that time, that I will search Jerusalem with candles, and punish the men that are settled on their lees: that say in their heart, The LORD will not do good, neither will he do evil. 13 Therefore their goods shall become a booty, and their houses a desolation: they shall also build houses, but not inhabit them; and they shall plant vineyards, but not drink the wine thereof. 14 The great day of the LORD is near, it is near, and hasteth greatly, even the voice of the day of the LORD: the mighty man shall cry there bitterly. 15 That day is a day of wrath, a day of trouble and distress, a day of wasteness and desolation, a day of darkness and gloominess, a day of clouds and thick darkness, 16 A day of the trumpet and alarm against the fenced cities, and against the high towers. 17 And I will bring distress upon men, that they shall walk like blind men, because they have sinned against the LORD: and their blood shall be poured out as dust, and their flesh as the dung. 18 Neither their silver nor their gold shall be able to deliver them in the day of the LORD’S wrath; but the whole land shall be devoured by the fire of his jealousy: for he shall make even a speedy riddance of all them that dwell in the land.

Jeremiah 5:25

25 Your iniquities have turned away these things, and your sins have withholden good
things from you.

Jeremiah 16:17

17 For mine eyes are upon all their ways: they are not hid from my face, neither is their iniquity hid from mine eyes.

Jeremiah 23:23-24

23 Am I a God at hand, saith the LORD, and not a God afar off? 24 Can any hide himself in secret places that I shall not see him? saith the LORD. Do not I fill heaven and earth? saith the LORD.

Isaiah 59:1-2

Behold, the LORD’S hand is not shortened, that it cannot save; neither his ear heavy, that it cannot hear: 2 But your iniquities have separated between you and your God, and your sins have hid his face from you, that he will not hear.

Hebrews 4:11-13
Let us therefore be diligent to enter that rest, lest anyone fall according to the same example of disobedience. 12 For the word of God is living and powerful, and sharper than any two-edged sword, piercing even to the division of soul and spirit, and of joints and marrow, and is a discerner of the thoughts and intents of the heart. 13 And there is no creature hidden from His sight, but all things are naked and open to the eyes of Him to whom we must give account.
