How do we Find Abba?

"Finding Abba" Tea & Coffee Meeting

Our Lord shows us three ways to address God in the Book of Luke, as Father, Friend, and Judge. When the disciples ask how to pray He instructs them with the first step in our relationship with God:
“Our Father who is in heaven…” (Luke 11:2)
The most important place to approach God is as Father. We must see Him as our kind, compassionate, loving Father. This can be quite challenging if we don’t have that kind of dad here on the Earth.
For you have not received the spirit of bondage again to fear; but you have received the Spirit of adoption, whereby we cry, Abba, Father. (Romans 8:15 AKJV)
Abba is not just another word for father. It is an Aramaic word for the intimate way to refer to your father, like a young child would use. Coming to the Secret Place is the ultimate revelation of God in this way.

A Gift from Jesus in the Secret Place

Rose Ceremony Meeting

The Holy Spirit has been encouraging me to worship God in a unique way. Worship music fills the room as I crochet. My hands are busy with the simple task while my heart and mind worship the Lord.  Last week, when I worshipped this way, I had one of the most unique encounters with Jesus when he strengthened my spiritual body (CLICK HERE to read about that).

Meditation & Journaling

Meditation & Journaling Meeting

This is a Moses generation. God wants to bring all His children to “The Secret Place” where He can speak to them face-to-face. He did this with Moses, and it was His original intent to have all of Israel visit Him this way. It can be seen in the recorded psalm of Moses:
He who dwells in the secret place of the Most High shall remain stable and fixed under the shadow of the Almighty… (Psalms 91:1)

A Strengthened Spirit in the Secret Place

Strength in the Secret Place (Q & A Meeting)

Even though the week wasn’t over, it had been a hard one. Two days before teaching about discernment, the Lord was kind enough to bring a correction that will help many avoid the traps of the enemy when receiving discernment from the Holy Spirit. I had been under attack from the enemy for a while and couldn’t find the cause.  At one point I literally felt blows to my spirit man. When the situation was resolved, I felt lighter, surrounded by a peace that I didn’t know was diminished until the fullness of it returned. When I look back now, I can see the warning and information given by the Lord,  all applied to this correction… as they say, “Hindsight is twenty-twenty.”

That afternoon, I followed the gentle nudges of the Holy Spirit: I set aside the pile of work waiting for me and put on some worship music while I was working on crocheting the afghan for my husband. The night before I had discovered some more yarn for the project - if I took out a few rows, this yarn would really make a much better looking finished project. 

Conversations with God 5

Did you know that our thoughts travel as neural pulses in our brain at a speed of around 275 mph? No wonder it can be difficult to ‘catch’ what God is saying to us because He speaks to us through our thoughts. Journaling helps us to slow down our thoughts so we can connect with our motor skills and write them down. From this we can learn to slow our thinking down and begin to hear God’s responses to our conversations with Him.

Cursed or Defiled Objects

Cursed or Defiled Objects

In the last article we discussed why cursed or defiled objects can still affect Christians and gave scripture to show that. If you have any doubts that we need to be cautious about what we have in our homes, even with the protection of the Lord, please start by reading that post: CLICK HERE
