Compelled to Go

I heard Him calling, drawing me to come away with Him. I felt compelled to gather my things and begin the long journey up the mountain. With every rise in elevation, the scenery grew more beautiful. Although tired, I pressed on to get to the destination, the place where I would commune with My Father.

The quiet stillness took over and a calm peace settled over me in my journey. “Come away with me by yourself and get some rest,” I heard Him call (Mark 6:31). I had approached My Refuge, My Shelter and My Security. My Eternal Father was waiting there for me to draw near. I had felt compelled to join Him on His mountain. I poured my heart out before Him, “Lord of heaven and earth and of all creation, You are the only pure Love that I have ever known. I breathe in deep and You wash away all that the world has thrown upon these weary shoulders."

“Be still and know that I Am God,” He replied (Ps. 46:10). I felt a gentle ease come over me. Oh, His presence and His peace washed over me from head to toe. “I will bring you near and you will come close, for who are you that you will devote yourself to me?” declared the Lord (Jer.30:21). Oh Lord, “Send forth Your Light and Your Truth, let them guide me” (Ps 43:3).

I felt Him speaking that it was time to awake. “Arise, shine,” he said. I had a revelation of how He inhabits the praises of His people. He is enthroned upon our praises causing us to shine with His glory as we lift His Name up higher. As He searches the landscape to and fro for one whose heart is pure towards Him, I want to get His attention. “I long to bless you, My Child” (Is.30:18).

My Father, I will actively accept and receive all that I can handle from You. I will arise and shine and take Your Light to the dying world.

“It is time to rebuild. See, I Am doing a new thing. It is time for you to contend for all that I have for you as Daniel did long ago. A new work is being birthed. I have called you to action. Take the first steps and I will guide you in all Truth toward the goal. There will be much labor, but the blessings will also be great. Trust me, My Child. Rest in Me. Abide in the Secret Place with Me, in the Shadow of My Wings. You are safe in Me, all of your needs are provided. I long to give you the desires of your heart, Little One.”

Absolutely beautiful! I love it! "Athough tired, I pressed on." Yes! And as we lift His name up higher, we rise with Him, seated on the wings of praise.

Excellent, Mitzi! True spirituality reflects genuine intimacy with the Father... and your writing is alive with it!

Treava <--- compelled too. :::smile::: Beautifully written, it encourages others to draw nearer to the Father and have the Father draw nearer them.

We all need to find a time and place to just be still and rest in the presence of God. Thank you Sis. Mitzi for sharing your inspiring testimony with us. It's such a blessing to read.

Amen! A beautiful anointed writing. surely God dwells in the Praises of His people; for praise is pleasant and honoring in His Holy Eyes. Let us proclaim His Holy Name and sing the Praises of of Our Holy God" Blessed is the Name of "JESUS"! In Christ Jesus,Dee "Numbers 6:24,25,26"

Loved your transparency, as usual! This sends chills down my spine: "It is time to rebuild. See, I Am doing a new thing." Isn't that just like God? To do a new thing in us? To build anew from the foundation, rather than on top of old junk? Praise Him, praise Him!

I love your article Mitzi. I really liked what you wrote here; (“It is time to rebuild.") Yes, I believe it is the time of restoration, and He is compelling us to come. Love, Sharon
