Was praying about the entry that was next. This morning something came to me, and as quick as that idea came it left. So, I continued seeking GOD about this. I heard clearly, “I want my children naked before me.” Most think that naked means literally without clothes. Except that is only part of the definition. Let’s look at the word defined.

My favorite definition is the one that says unarmed and defenseless. Here is the reason why this is my favorite; God will NOT harm us. It might not be comfortable but God Himself never brings His children harm. He may permit it, and be sovereign over it, but HE hurts when we do. He takes no pleasure from inflicting pain. He always sees the BIG picture, and considers every single need.
Watching what is happening in the world, we must remember something. Like Isaiah, we must come naked b4 God. Because, if we look at the posts and news in regards to past, recent and future events, without God’s guidance and eyes, we can get deceived. Now, even if that happens, it does not mean we have to stay there. We can choose to seek GOD and HIS LOVE to comfort us and get us out. Essentially, we can hide within God and He will protect us. But, only if we wake up and sincerely say, “I’m sorry Lord.”
So here is the question of the hour. Are you naked before God? Do you lay down emotions, hurts, even passions b4 God? It really is the same question. Have you surrendered to FAITH or FEAR? It is time to ask GOD to do an analysis. If you do it yourself, it can and likely will be manipulated to some degree. But, if you ask GOD to do it, He will. God cannot fail. He can make it look like He does, but HE never ever actually fails.
The world has perverted nakedness. It began first in the garden of Eden. But, this was no surprise to God. He knew what would arrive then and now. Remember the victory, that is gifted by GOD will come through your sincere praise of HIM. It won’t come through praising you, or others. It will not be present because of insincere motives or actions. No matter how it seems, GOD is the ONLY one who can bless without ill intentions, and we cannot do so, unless fastened unto HIM. Really, it is GOD using us to bless and not curse.
I have always felt a need to explain myself. It is kind of a bad habit I have. Thank GOD that He is breaking it off of me. He is teaching me and us, that part of being naked b4 HIM means HE fights. It really is HIS battle and war and NOT ours. Yet, there are so many bringing false teachings saying WE have to fix it. What a crock. Like WE even could fix it. The ONLY one who can get us out of the mess that often WE have created is GOD. Our part is simply to come into agreement and receive the unlocking of the HOLY doors, as well as the unlocking of the unholy ones, so that HIS way and plan can come forth. If Heaven arrives you can bet HELL won’t be far behind. The enemy is a competitive one. Yet, God cares not at all about the desire to compete.
This song came on the radio today…it says so much about our humanity and our heart’s cry. I believe even the most wounded person, who may or may not be seeking HIM has experienced some of this from an emotion stand point. ~
“Steady My Heart”
by: Kari Jobe
Wish it could be easy
Why is life so messy?
Why is pain a part of us?
There are days I feel like
Nothing ever goes right
Sometimes it just hurts so muchBut You’re here
You’re real
I know I can trust You

Even when it hurts
Even when it’s hard
Even when it all just falls apart
I will run to You
‘Cause I know that You are
Lover of my soul
Healer of my scars
You steady my heart [x2]

I’m not gonna worry
I know that You’ve got me
Right inside the palm of your hand
Each and every moment
What’s good and what gets broken
Happens just the way You plan

You are here
You’re real
I know I can trust You

Even when it hurts
Even when it’s hard
Even when it all just falls apart
I will run to You
‘Cause I know that You are
Lover of my soul
Healer of my scars
You steady my heart [x2]

And I will run to You
And find refuge in Your arms
And I will sing to You
‘Cause of everything You are

You steady my heart [x2]

Even when it hurts
Even when it’s hard
Even when it all just falls apart
I will run to You
‘Cause I know that You are
Lover of my soul
Healer of my scars
You steady my heart [x2]

I’m not gonna worry
I know that you’ve got me
Right inside the palm of your hand ~

Pain does not have to stay a part of us…

The pictures for this entry are of some celebrities with no make-up. It is simply so we can observe how much is hidden. Did not want to post actual naked photos. But without make-up is still face naked. 😉
God is not a God of panic, or of confusion. However, it does not mean He isn’t present. He is NOT manic, or illusionary. In this season, He for sure is NOT messing around. He is a GOD of holy strategy, He is a GOD of infinite Heavenly LOVE, He is one who never gives up on us, even when we run away, or attempt to justify us or sins. His heart is designed to fit yours like a GLOVE. Every day a clean slate, beginning again. He sits above us, but will meet us where we are. This day, He is a GOD who is and will fight for HIS children. He makes you a superstar. But, you must be in holy union. We cannot continue just putting up with FEAR. Please hear this child’s plea. Because it gives access that has already been DENIED on the cross. It provides undeserving keys. Don’t you see, have you not heard the truth? Because knowing the lies just brings deception. Knowing HIS TRUTH and word will dispell the lies, and GOD will change the direction. Are you coming disrobed before HIM? Are you still mounted to the world here? Because if you are a friend of God, it will hold no value. Not to say you won’t enjoy life, because holy surrender burns the strife. The holy fire paves the GLORY road. Soon, ALL will be told. Do you believe and receive holy freedom? Or, will you bite for what seems to be ok? Because GOD is overturning the theater, and He is moving HELL out of the way. For the chosen Heavenly elect, eventually there will be respect. Not necessarily for you, but the HOLY God within. The only one who deserves the GLORY is here. Holy Father, Holy Savior, Holy Spirit and friend. Love that never ends, but discipline and judgement that arrives. Listen to the word, so that it can come out by FAITH, and the FEAR will be burned away, by the Lion of Judah’s Fire. Every unholy desire must GO. We LOVE you LORD. Make us whom you desire us to be. We repent for places of faltering, and we lay it at your feet. — feeling Lost in HOLY Worship.
