I attended a Shut-In with a Group of Ladies this past Friday, Presented by Pausing With God, a ministry ran by a Good Friend of mine Sheri Powell. This was an awesome night of Prayer and Ministering! Sheri came prepared with notes of preparation but even she did not know how God was going to move!

All the Ladies had not arrived yet and God was already beginning to confirm his agenda. We learned that night while sitting at the King's feet how important it is to just that! To stop all that we are doing and "PAUSE, with God. Those good acts of service are robbing us! We need to PAUSE and allow him to serve and minister to us! Allow him to clean our basement, our bathroom and even our attics! If we are so busy doing and doing and doing there is no time for him to meet us where him need him at! That could your past hurts, you hang-ups! addictions! Stop being Martha with an offended soul, a broken heart or a wounded Little girl Spirit in a grown body and sit at your Father's Feet and Heal! Then climb up in his lap and learn who HE is as God YOUR FATHER!

One of the ladies that attended posted on a blog this question, How can you know God as Father is you had no Earthly example? She understood serving God as a King! But how does she relate to him as God her Father? I responded to her, that knowing that God had formed her in Mother's womb, knowing the number of hairs on her head and creating one with a purpose and destiny where all forms of Intimacy! Intimacy, In to me see! Who can see into you and know you better that one who created you!

Other Lessons Learned:

You may be called to Ministry but if you are not delivered from that AREA (Example: called to minister to recovering sex addicts but you are still struggling yourself) you will targeted by Satan because you are week.
Prioritize Your Time Wisely.
Fear is a Lack of Faith: If God called YOU, He will EQUIP you! Launch it to the DEEP!

God’s Omnipresence and Omniscience./He Knows you because he formed you.

1 O LORD, You have searched me and known me.
2 You know when I sit down and when I rise up; You understand my thought from afar.
3 You scrutinize my path and my lying down, And are intimately acquainted with all my ways.
4 Even before there is a word on my tongue, Behold, O LORD, You know it all.
5 You have enclosed me behind and before, And laid Your hand upon me.
6 Such knowledge is too wonderful for me; It is too high, I cannot attain to it.
7 Where can I go from Your Spirit? Or where can I flee from Your presence?
8 If I ascend to heaven, You are there; If I make my bed in Sheol, behold, You are there.
9 If I take the wings of the dawn, If I dwell in the remotest part of the sea,
10 Even there Your hand will lead me, And Your right hand will lay hold of me.
11 If I say, “Surely the darkness will overwhelm me, And the light around me will be night,”
12 Even the darkness is not dark to You, And the night is as bright as the day. Darkness and light are alike to You.
13 For You formed my inward parts; You wove me in my mother’s womb.
14 I will give thanks to You, for I am fearfully and wonderfully made; Wonderful are Your works, And my soul knows it very well.
15 My frame was not hidden from You, When I was made in secret, And skillfully wrought in the depths of the earth;
16 Your eyes have seen my unformed substance; And in Your book were all written The days that were ordained for me, When as yet there was not one of them.
17 How precious also are Your thoughts to me, O God! How vast is the sum of them!
18 If I should count them, they would outnumber the sand. When I awake, I am still with You.
19 O that You would slay the wicked, O God; Depart from me, therefore, men of bloodshed.
20 For they speak against You wickedly, And Your enemies take Your name in vain.
21 Do I not hate those who hate You, O LORD? And do I not loathe those who rise up against You?
22 I hate them with the utmost hatred; They have become my enemies.
23 Search me, O God, and know my heart; Try me and know my anxious thoughts;
24 And see if there be any hurtful way in me, And lead me in the everlasting way.

Mary has chosen what is better, and it will not be taken away from her."

For God has not given us a spirit of timidity, but of power and love and discipline.
