Have you ever been so angry at someone that you wanted to kill them? God was: “Let me alone that My anger may burn against them and that I may destroy them…” (Ex 32:10)
Have you ever been so disappointed in someone that you wanted to throw in the towel? God was: “The Lord was sorry that He had made man on the earth, and He was grieved in His Heart.” (Gen 6:6)
Have you ever loved someone so much that you wanted to burst into song? God did: “He will take great delight in you; in His love He will rejoice over you with singing." (Zeph 3:17)
 Have you ever counted your lucky stars because your partner is the apple of your eye? God did: “As a bridegroom rejoices over his bride, so will your God rejoice over you.” (Is 62:5)
Have you ever been so pleased with someone that you wanted to give them a million dollars? God has: ”Then the Lord your God will make you most prosperous in all the work of your hands and in the fruit of your womb, the young of your livestock and the crops of your land. The Lord will delight in you and make you prosperous.” (Deut 30:9)



"Ask and it will be given to you; seek and you will find; knock and the door will be opened to you. For everyone who asks receives; he who seeks finds, and to him who knocks, the door will be opened." (Matt 7:7,8)

Several years ago I attended a Holy Spirit conference in Las Vegas in which Heidi Baker was one of the speakers. Heidi was telling us about an experience she had with God, where she actually found herself sitting before God's throne. She had to approach the throne in a prostrate position, face down. She then invited everyone who wanted to enter the throne room to come forward. Hundreds of people ran to the front, including me.

I got down on my knees and closed my eyes. Suddenly I started feeling a hand pushing my back down. I looked around to see who was doing that, but no one was near me. Then Heidi cried "Look! Open your eyes and look, you're all in the position to enter in!" I looked around the room, and sure enough, every single person (myself included) was lying prostrate on the floor.

I thought I was going in to the throne room of God, but yet nothing happened. I was in the glory, but I didn't see God. I wept bitterly. I so desperately wanted to enter in. Later that day the pastor's wife was praying for me, and here's what she said: "You've been asking to enter God's 
house, and God says YES! You are welcome in His house." Now there's no way this woman knew what I had prayed for earlier that day. That was God.

The next morning in the sanctuary I went forward with hundreds of others during worship. Right then and there I had a vision. I was standing before the throne of God! God heard my cries to enter in, and He said yes.

If I hadn't heard Heidi telling us of her experience when she entered in, I never would have had the notion that this was something that could be asked for, or even something that could be attained! So now I'm sharing my experience with you. Do you want to enter in? Ask, seek and knock...and the door will be opened.


This morning I met with God in the woods. I was breathing in deeply the burnt sage like I always do during my God time. Hmmmm, this is so good, God, I said. From now on I want to sit at this campfire in the woods with you every morning.  But God said no. "Tomorrow I'm taking you to the top of a glorious mountain where you can look down on the earth and see things from My viewpoint. If you sit at the campfire everyday, you will miss out on many wonderful sights that I have planned for you."

After six days Jesus took with him Peter, James and John the brother of James, and led them up a high mountain by themselves. There he was transfigured before them. His face shone like the sun, and his clothes became as white as the light. Just then there appeared before them Moses and Elijah, talking with Jesus. Peter said to Jesus, “Lord, it is good for us to be here. If you wish, I will put up three shelters—one for you, one for Moses and one for Elijah.” (Matthew 17:1-4)

 God cannot be confined to any one place or time. Today's message from God was to stop putting up shelters where we last met with God. Tomorrow we will find Him somewhere else. It's all good...

Noah's Ark

1.  Don't miss the boat.
2.  Remember that we are all in the same boat.
3.  Plan ahead. It wasn't raining when Noah built the Ark.
4.  Stay fit. When you're 600 years old, someone may ask you to do something really big.
5.  Don't listen to critics; just get on with the job that needs to be done.
6.  Build your future on high ground.
7.  For safety's sake, travel in pairs.

8.  Speed isn't always an advantage. The snails were on board with the cheetahs.

9.  When you're stressed, float a while.

10.  Remember, the Ark was built by amateurs; the Titanic by professionals!

11.  No matter the storm...when you are with God there's always a rainbow waiting.
