He coddles me
What a sweet and wonderful Father I serve. Recently, I received an image while in worship at church. It was an eye of fire. I saw the image for quite some time and knew that this was a directive from the Lord to paint another silk flag/banner (whatever you wanna call it). This image came to me the Sunday before the annual Jesus at the beach Festival (which started the next day)...so I pondered the image for a bit, and like usual the enemy hurled a lie at me about the image.......saying something like "didn't you see the Lord of the Rings, the eye of fire was the evil eye". I then turned to scripture with a sort of remembrance of Jesus having eyes of fire. Yep, there it was ...

Revelation 19:12 check Rev.11-16 out "And I saw heaven opened, and behold, a white horse, and He who sat on it is called Faithful and True, and in righteousness He judges and wages war.

v.12: His eyes are a flame of fire, and on His head are many diadems; and He has a name written on Him which no one knows except Himself.

He is clothed with a robe dipped in blood, and His name is called The Word of God.

And the armies which are in heaven clothed in fine linen, white and clean, were following Him on white horses.

From His mouth comes a sharp sword, so that with it He may strike down the nations, and He will rule them with a rod of iron; and He treads the wine press of the fierce wrath of God, the Almighty.

And on His robe and on His thigh He has a name written "King of Kings, And Lord of Lords".

whew friends if that don't send chills up your spine......m m m m m

So, back to the testimony: After church I asked my hubby what he was looking up in the Word at church that day, and it turns out he was reading Revelation 1...check vs. 14 "His head and His hair were white like white wool, like snow; and His eyes were like a flame of fire."

So, that Monday, I went to Jesus at the Beach with no new flag, but that Wednesday I started it at 2:00, finished it, cooked dinner for the family, cleaned up and drove down (45 min drive) to the festival with flag in hand. Turns out the same scripture was quoted that was the inspiration. I believe the Lord used this piece to minister to the people wandering the boardwalk in a semi-hypontic stupor. I used to be one of those people. GOD is all about REDEMPTION!! I thank Him for His infinite mercy!

Oh yeah, two more points of confirmation on this one.........my pastor quoted the same scripture the next Sunday, and John Hagee said it again on TBN that day!! I love it when God coddles me in this way with so much confirmation. I realize so much that I'm just His babe who needs lots of hugs and affirmation. The kind of lovin' only He could give!

P.S. I'd love to see the Holy Spirit moving in the miraculous through this weak little vessel, but I will not despise the day of small beginnings!!!
