We are blessed this month to have these encouraging and equipping words by Larry and Jacqueline Pearson of Lion Sword Communication. Lion Sword Communications was founded by Larry and Jacqueline Pearson to provide ongoing business and life coaching, as well as many other life giving services. They are a gift to the Body of Christ at large, and a particular blessing to us here at Divine Exchange, through their input, advice and counsel as members of our Prophetic Advisory Board.
Thank you Larry and Jacqueline for all the ways you press in to the heart of God, and the blessing it is to us all! We pray His rivers of life to wash over you, as you read these words of love from His heart to yours!
The Lord has been examining His people. Do we have a paradigm of working for the Lord or with the Lord? In our assignments, if we see ourselves as working for the Lord, we will easily tire out or grasp for anything that will work, or we will manoeuvre to meet that ‘bottom line’.
The Lord has declared that we are sons and daughters, and not slaves. As a slave, we will strive to succeed or climb the ladder but a son or daughter lives in a state of rest because of God’s ability at work in and through him or her. A barometer for the sons or daughters would therefore be ‘How much rest am I living in or working from?’ God has prepared a ‘rest’ for His people and we are only to strive to enter into that rest alone and nothing else. I have heard Graham Cooke say that ‘rest is the ultimate weapon for a believer’. Let us lay aside every weight and encumbrance that robs us of rest in Christ. As his children, we are partakers of Christ’s inheritance, we cannot earn it. Philippians 4:13 says that ‘we can do all things through (with) Christ who strengthens us’.
When His sons and daughters realize the surpassing greatness of His power that is available toward us who believe, we can live from that realm of being a joint heir with Christ and see Him do the impossible through us. It is God who is at work in us, both to will and do His good pleasure. So, let us allow Him to examine our hearts to see where we stand as one that works for Him or with Him.
Let us forsake any self-inspired perspective and gain our Father’s view that empowers us to be His children who have access to all that He is and all the He has, to see His kingdom advanced over all the earth. They that are led by the Spirit are the sons of God. In case you have not noticed lately, the whole earth is groaning, waiting for us to manifest a mature son-ship. Let us continue on the path as sons and daughters, ambassadors with our King, executing His will in our families, businesses, various spheres of influence and throughout the earth. May the Father bestow upon us, this ultimate weapon of His ‘rest’ in all that we are and all that we do, as His children.
Below is a prophetic word received February 7, 2013 - Jacqueline Pearson, Lion Sword Communications, Inc.....
This is the year that you will stop your labors and cease from your striving. This is the time to learn to trust in Me with all your heart and mind and to truly grasp the truth that “rest is the ultimate weapon”. Trust Me to work within your heart to transform you into My own image. Do not be distracted by the external circumstances or by the voices of man or the lies of the enemy. Taste of Me and see that I am a good God and that the plans that I have for you are indeed to prosper you and not to harm you. Learn of Me. Take My Yoke upon you and not the burdens of man for my yoke is easy and my burden is light.
