Fruit that remains

From Sarah's Pen

PSALM: 5:3

 

At each and every sunrise you will hear my voice as I prepare my sacrifice of prayer to you. Every morning I lay out the pieces of my life on the altar and wait for your fire to fall upon my heart.

Shalom dear friends,
 
We are home again after flying 22 times and drove many kilometers in the last month in a half. We can just thank Abba for all His travelling mercies. Thank You that we are blessed when we come in and blessed when we go out. Our time in Europe was blessed and purpose filled. We thank Him for every opportunity and every connection made.

With this trip I have just realized in a deeper way that we must really focus on obedience and what Abba is asking of us. Many times we become confused if something was truly His will or not if there is resistance, difficulty and obstacles. Everything is not always going to be plain sailing when we obey although His blessing will be evident. He will help us, guide us and cause us to grow in fruitfulness through the hic-ups. We must not doubt His goodness or faithfulness if obstacles and difficulties arise along the journey of listening and obeying.
 
We did experience some obstacles along the way but it was a good reminder to listen to Yeshua’s voice instead of the serpents voice in the matter. At this time Abba is asking us to travel a lot with two small children and sometimes it really is a price to pay but the currency is love. What is Abba asking of you in this season? What price is He asking you

to pay and are you willing to loose your life in the process?
 
Sometimes it is easy to say yes, but when reality comes it is more difficult than expected. This is because of the ‘self’ in our lives. Abba is constantly busy in various ways to draw us

to lay down this ‘self’. We just need to identify the ‘self’ because it is always rooted in pride. Our pride blinds our eyes from seeing it for what it is. We must seek Abba to open our eyes so that the ‘self’ will not veil us to see from His perspective.

Abba is deeply busy showing us the layers of ‘self’. This is not something that you can be delivered from. You cannot pray the ‘self’ away. You can only be sanctified and purified from this through repentance- through making choice after choice of laying yourself down out of love for Yeshua. This self grows out of the soul wounds in our lives. We will not stop harvesting ‘self’ fruits until our soul wounds and the memories inside of it becomes healed. This is one of the topics that we are currently speaking about in our camps and conferences. You can go to our calendar page on our website to view our itinerary for the year if you wound like to hear more…
 
I hear a word in the spirit… “Pray”! Again I hear: “Pray”!
I replied and asked Yeshua, what must we pray?
 
“Pray as you walk, pray as you work, pray as you live. In everything and through everything- PRAY! Some of My children are tired of the struggle between the soul and spirit but many are prayerless. For many prayer is a religious act. For many prayer is something that only comes out of desperation. Many don’t pray out of joy, excitement thankfulness or simply just to ask Me what I am doing or what I am thinking. You were made in My image.  I also think. I have thoughts over you, your life, your work, your children, your time. Stop and ask Me for My thoughts. Don’t just ramble on through the day without speaking with your Maker. I long to listen to your thoughts set on Me. Many of My children struggle with weaknesses because a basic principle of prayer is missing in their lives and it causes your spirit man to become weak. Did you know that there are dimensions in the spirit that I can only take you in through prayer. There are heights and depths but few explore them because of a lack of communication. There are many forms of prayer which I long to lead you into but it will cost a price on your part. Most of all it will cost time. This is one of the most precious things that you can give Me. If you cannot give your time, give your focus because if you give your focus you are able to walk in the spirit while you are living life.”
 
Psalm 27:4
Here’s the one thing I crave from God, the one thing I seek above all else: I want the privilege of living with him every moment in his house, finding the sweet loveliness of his face, filled with awe, delighting in his glory and grace. I want to live my life so close to him that he takes pleasure in my every prayer.


I see many angels sitting at long tables. They were writing down prayers. Some of the angels looked bored. I wondered why… Holy Spirit said: “Each born again believer has an angel assigned to their prayer life. The angel will put every prayer on record to bring it before Me. However, because of a lack of prayer in many of My children’s lives the angels are unoccupied. They sit and wait for the prayers to come but most often they don’t come. Some of the prayers come directly before Me while others are burned before it comes before Me. Prayers that are fleshly has no power in My courts or potential to bring forth a harvest in your life. Fleshly prayers do not move heaven. I want to teach My children about My courtroom and about how heaven operates. Bring your prayers in alignment with My heart through asking Holy Spirit to lead you what to pray. Communicate with Me about everything in your life. Prayer is like food to your spirit. It builds you up, it strengthens you to walk in

My purchased victory. An overcomer is trained in prayer”.
 
When I heard these words I saw a woman in one of the courts of heaven. Yeshua walked into the court and said: “This is heaven’s training ground. Many of My people fill the training grounds of the earth. Gyms are filled with people who exercise their muscles. Most of them are more interested in looking good than being healthy although they will argue differently. Few are operating the training grounds of heaven. Come and see.”
 
The woman was flat on her face. It almost looked as though she was stretching but she was praying before Yeshua’s feet.  “Prayer stretches your spiritual muscles. I want My bride’s spiritual muscles to become strong. Many are weak in their capacity to intercede. I want to stretch you, I want to strengthen you. I want to enlarge your capacity. I want your prayer life to grow into a tree of intimacy with Me.”
 
Psalm 5:3
At each and every sunrise you will hear my voice as I prepare my sacrifice of prayer to you. Every morning I lay out the pieces of my life on the altar and wait for your fire to fall upon my heart.

 
The woman stood up and I saw that she was clothed in a very plain white garment. It looked like pure linen. She was very friendly and Holy Spirit was like a sweet aroma all around her. It looked like her skin was almost like a layer of oil. “Do you see that she is saturated in My presence because she lives prayerfully.” This woman was truly something to behold. She was extremely strong and radiating. There was a type of solidness about her. Abba’s strength was her shield and you could see His love flowing from her innermost being. Yeshua looked at me and said: “This is her spirit man. Do you want to see how she looks in the physical?” An angel came and said: “Let’s go”. We found ourselves in Russia. I’ve never been there before but I knew it was Russia. The angel opened the door of a house and we walked in. It was a very plain house. We walked to the kitchen and at the kitchen table there was an old lady sitting at the table. “Holy Spirit said: “There she is.” He said her name was Mary. She had grey hair and was advanced in age. I couldn’t believe my eyes. She looked so much different in the spirit although she still had the same kindness and atmosphere of love around her. She was sitting with the Word in front of her and she was praying Scripture. In between she got up and made herself a cup of tea continuing to pray. She was alone in the house and I experienced that she was a widow.
 
“Do you see what prayer does? It strengthens you and it delights Me. Exercise your spiritual muscles. You can preach and have Me on your lips but not live prayerfully and therefore be spiritually weak. Only I and the angels see the sum of your prayer life. Therefore it is an act of love and not a spiritual duty. Communicate with Me because you love Me, long for Me and want to know Me in every aspect of your life. Not because prayer is a means to an end. Don’t always just pray for answers. Sometimes I don’t answer because the motives with which you pray does not please Me. Enter heaven’s training grounds and exercise your spiritual muscles. Be strengthened in Me My bride. Run along now. There is a lot to be done before

I return.
 
I love you, Yeshua
 
Psalm 42:8
Yet all day long God’s promises of love pour over me. Through the night I sing his songs,

for my prayer to God has become my life.
 
We will still send out another letter this month with our first YouTube message so look out for it. We will also send out an invitation later this month for the Feast of Trumpets Full Orchestra Worship Evening that we will be hosting September this year. Very excited about this! We will share more about the event in our next letter.
 
May you grow into Abba’s desire and design.
 
Love and blessings
Sarah, Rion and family
