Just a quick, updated note for those the Lord has led to join with me on the Protection Series journey… Abba has continued to amaze me in showing me how we are profoundly created. As we continue to actively live in Jesus, our minds may think one thing, but yet at the same time our whole being, both physically and spiritually, will actually go through something completely different. An amazing reflection of our obedience to Abba, and His safeguarding techniques in keeping us fully within His will as King Jesus intimately shepherds us. Sometimes our minds are even disengaged to a point that we really do not realize what we have gone through, are going through, or are about to go through until the Holy Spirit reveals it to us, and instructs us in it; which can take days, months, and even years. He is all about preserving, nurturing, healing, and protecting every aspect of our well-being. We are His and He is ours. Keeping this in mind, after the one full year of Shabbat (from the date our last Protection Series novel was published) where I had explained how He had stilled my fingers at writing, I never realized until just recently when the Lord confided in me, reminded me, and showed me that within that year He continued to mentally, physically and spiritually heal me and kept me healthily balanced as I had need of, however, He too rested with me in that He did not create new work within my life and mind. Instead, He richly and deeply healed and worked to complete within me an amazingly Divine integration of my past and present in ways and to depths that can only ever be done by the very Hands of our Creator, the Great I Am, which also reveals a new depth regarding our true identities, found only through King Jesus. That is why over these last few months this book has not yet been completed. He has not fully released my fingers to work, instead it is only during brief intervals that I write which would physically seem sporadic and not dependable, but spiritually is essential. It is another protective safeguarding technique over what He and I do together, which reveals how He, too, highly values what we do with Him. Amazing! During these last few months He has continued to deeply change my mindset even more, preparing me for the writing ahead into the riches of His glory; and amazingly, it also brings new meaning to what He had led me to focus on and write about in a few of these devotions regarding the importance of enjoying and valuing each and every process He brings us through. In each of our lives, as the Holy Spirit nurtures our patience and obedience, King Jesus is able to powerfully strengthen our faith and trust in Abba to depths we could never have imagined. Part of our unique experience is to be able to actively and obediently appreciate and enjoy each and every process He leads us through, which gives us an actual peek into His profoundly Divine protection over each of us. This also uniquely reveals and builds within our minds a deeper revelation regarding His precise diligence over our well-being. It is definite and it is profoundly powerful: We are His, and He is ours, our Jehovah Jireh, our Provider! ‘But ye are a chosen generation, a royal priesthood, an holy nation, a peculiar people; that ye should shew forth the praises of Him who hath called you out of darkness into His marvelous Light: which in time past were not a people, but are now the people of God: which had not obtained mercy, but now have obtained mercy.’ (1Peter 2:9-10) ‘If ye then be risen with Christ, seek those things which are above, where Christ sitteth on the Right Hand of God. Set your affection on things above, not on things on the earth. For ye are dead, and our life is hid with Christ in God. When Christ, who is our life, shall appear, then shall ye also appear with Him in glory.’ (Colossians 3:1-4) Praise King Jesus!!!
