Yep – yet another ‘God-incidence’ showing we live and breathe in Him and by His Grace. Am still so grateful 26 years later: thank you for saving me Lord.
Upon checking my email earlier today I noticed these two heading up my blog’s in-tray:
- The Road (Tim Shey) – Practising His Presence – 12/1/2016 07:00
- Glasgow Prophetic Centre – Abide in Remain – 12/1/2016 06:05
Upon opening the first I find a re-blog of a post by Scottish-born Paul Eliot dedicated to Tim Shey, the High Plains Drifter whose pilgrimage on the roads of America reminded Paul he’s a stranger on the earth. Now that reminds me I was dreaming only hours earlier of looking at some crinkly terrain I knew was somewhere in mid-West USA (maybe ‘badlands’, Dakotas?).
But what hit me between the eyes was a reference in Tim/Paul’s post that relates to one I’m drafting for later today on the return of a prodigal.
And today’s encouraging prophetic word from Scotland connects not only into the Americans’ theme of the Presence but it also relates to the prodigal’s situation!…
LION BITES: ABIDE AND REMAIN
Come to me all who are weary, for my yoke is easy and my burden is light. Come away with me that I might refresh you – your body, soul and spirit.
Come and be with me, stay with me, abide and remain in my presence. I am all that you need. It is good to be still and know that I am God. Do not be distracted by the things of the world around you but instead come into my presence where you can look upon me, your strength and your song,
I am all that you need. I am your provider and I am your protector. I am your lover so remain here in me.
My child, remember who you are – an overcoming child of the Most High. All power and authority are given to those who abide in me.
Abide in Me, and I in you. As the branch cannot bear fruit of itself unless it abides in the vine, so neither can you unless you abide in Me. I am the vine, you are the branches; he who abides in Me and I in him, he bears much fruit, for apart from Me you can do nothing.
