LISTENING TO GOD FORUM ~ This international forum is for those interested in developing a listening relationship with Jesus and in experiencing His freeing Truth. It's a place to learn, share stories, ask questions, and share what Jesus is doing in and through you. Are you working through the book on your own? Have you started an inner-healing study? I'd love to dialogue with you today!
This morning as I was spending time alone with God and
peering into our back yard, I was struck with how green everything is. As I took
in the beauty of the deep green leaves on several aspens and a maple tree
coupled with our freshly cut green grass and sought to attend to the voice of
God, a word popped into my heart and mind. It was FLOURISH!
As I listened, I sensed my Father God communicate:
want you to flourish like a well-watered garden … not to barely survive, but to
enjoy deep friendship, connection, and the wonder of relating deeply with Me as well as with the
people I surround you with. I want you to flourish where I have planted you!
They are planted in the house of
the LORD; they flourish in the courts of our God. ~ Psalm 92:13 ESV
How about you? Are you
flourishing, stagnating, or declining?
To grant to those who mourn in
Zion — to give them a beautiful headdress instead of ashes, the oil of gladness
instead of mourning, the garment of praise instead of a faint spirit; that they
may be called oaks of righteousness, the planting of the LORD, that he may be
glorified. ~ Isaiah
