These "lines" may help

"If anyone is thirsty, let him come to Me and drink. Whoever believes in Me, as the Scripture has said, streams of living water will flow from within him." John 7:37

Your Father is taking the limits off so you can freely walk, talk, cry, laugh, bring Good News, comfort souls, encourage the downtrodden and lift up the depressed and sick soul. Your steps will go faster and you will reach higher as you rest in Him alone. This is all free for the taking. 


We will become rich knowing our God through His Word, and make His Word our own and walk in it. We may be poor according to worldly standards, but as for me and our family we've never noticed this since our eyes were focused on the riches of God. Therefore He has blessed us, according to His promises. Anyone who is searching for earthly treasures and riches will miss out on God's riches and will stay "poor" indeed. Blessed be the name of the Lord. AMEN!

Therefore I said, Surely these are poor; they are foolish: for they know not the way of the LORD, nor the judgment of their God. Jeremiah 5:4

A Man's or Woman's character is like a fence; All the whitewash in the world won't strengthen it. 
Only Jesus is our STRENGTH through the Holy Spirit. He is our ALL IN ALL! We can't get anything better in this life, because He is more than life to us!

What is man, that Thou art mindful of him? and the son of man, that Thou visitest him?
For Thou hast made him a little lower than the angels, and hast crowned him with glory and honour.
Thou madest him to have dominion over the works of Thy hands; Thou hast put all things under his feet: Psalm 8:4-6

Knowing His Voice!

Therefore I say unto you, Take no thought for your life, what ye shall eat, or what ye shall drink; nor yet for your body, what ye shall put on. Is not the life more than meat, and the body than raiment?
Behold the fowls of the air: for they sow not, neither do they reap, nor gather into barns; yet your heavenly Father feedeth them. Are ye not much better than they?
Which of you by taking thought can add one cubit unto his stature?
And why take ye thought for raiment? Consider the lilies of the field, how they grow; they toil not, neither do they spin:
And yet I say unto you, That even Solomon in all his glory was not arrayed like one of these. Matthew 6:25-29

Put your worries aside; do not allow others to take away your joy; be not impressed by the wickedness around you; let not your mind be filled with fear; rather rest completely on what the Father is telling you in His Word and BELIEVE His promises.
You don't need to suffer if you take God's Word at face value! He is the TRUTH and the LIGHT. Stand firm on His Word even if you see the opposite at the moment. 

TAKE IT OR LEAVE IT! The Lord has spoken.

God does not speak to His children just to say something, as we may do, but our heavenly Father spoke the Word in the beginning and it came into existence. He spoke all through the Old Testament and it happened. He is still speaking today.

God looked down from the cloud and the pillar of fire when Pharaoh and his gang pursued His people crossing the Red Sea. Not only was the water divided by God's power, but the Word of God continues to say that the Lord took off the wheels of the Pharaoh's chariots, to make their travelling difficult. NO, not the angel of the Lord... GOD HIMSELF did undo these wheels.

Just imagine the involvement God will have with mankind. How easily can one overlook this without noticing the detail!
Again this is precision work and timing. Just read Exodus Chapter 14.

The Lord is never too late, neither too early. We have to learn to trust Him in His judgement about things and time. Trust Him!

The secret of hearing God speaking is, by drowning out all "noise"; nullifying the enhancement of oneself; being humble before the Lord; not going for outward appearance; no desire to be praised by others; but rather simplicity in whatever we do, say, think and are.

Just being a ZERO before God Almighty, so that He alone will be glorified through our life. It is most important to be "humble and silent"; to really understand His way in "hearing His voice" in order to present His Message to His children.
Glory to God!

The Challenges of our Christian Walk

O bless our God, ye people, and make the voice of His praise to be heard: Which holdeth our soul in life, and suffereth not our feet to be moved.

For Thou, O God, hast proved us: Thou hast tried us, as silver is tried. Thou broughtest us into the net; Thou laidst affliction upon our loins. Thou hast caused men to ride over our heads; we went through fire and through water: but Thou broughtest us out into a wealthy place. 

I will go into Thy house with burnt offerings: I will pay Thee my vows, which my lips have uttered, and my mouth hath spoken, when I was in trouble. Psalm 66:8-14

Beloved friend in Christ,

Allow me to share from my personal experience how important and beneficial it will become when we allow the Father to teach us through the Word and personal experiences. May these experiences be a challenge or blessing.

I have known the Savior and the Father, and the Holy Spirit for some 53 years. 
In the early stages I walked step by step, just as a baby learned to walk, stumbled here and there, but got up and walked a bit better after. As time went by my leg muscles became pretty strong and I could even run after several years. Of course speaking about my spiritual walk with God. 

Now there have been challenges in my life and I had to decide which way I wanted to go... my way or the Father's way. I struggled and fought my way through the trials. 
Many difficulties crossed my path but I was holding unto the Lord, because I knew that I would be a loser if I didn't. 

Some trials were poured over me with force, but I overcame in the strength of the Lord. 
Later on I learned to not avoid the challenges God brought my way, since they became learning experiences. The Father taught me to apply His word and promises, so I would overcome for His glory.

Some were painful years, similar as where Joseph went through when he was thrown in the dry well by his brothers, sold and then during his tenure put into prison due to the lies of Potiphar's wife, remember? 

Joseph did not crumble under the pressure, he rather was a help to other prisoners. God led him out and Joseph became the right hand of Pharaoh, and the mightiest in the land of Egypt at the age of thirty.

What I am trying to tell you is that if we want to grow and become stronger in the Lord so He can use us in His service, we HAVE TO GO through the God provided challenges to build up FAITH and TRUST in His word.

If we would ignore that which God puts on our path, we will be missing out on learning experiences which would have strengthened our FAITH and our walk with Him. The result of this may be that we lose the chance to see God at work. 

Also one will become weaker instead of stronger by ignoring God's direction. 
By Not using your "muscles" you will become weak and eventually powerless, right?

Just check some of the Mighty men of God throughout the Bible and you will agree with me that their life was far from easy... then read what they received in return... AN AWESOME EXPERIENCE WITH THE MASTER HIMSELF. 

The three Hebrew children had one of the greatest experiences in the fiery furnace, especially when they walked out unharmed. Daniel in the lions den was another person who walked in obedience unto God, nevertheless he was left in the lions' den to be shred to pieces, but wasn't. 

Has God changed? Absolutely NOT!! We are the ones who may change.

With this, I want to encourage you to accept all that the Father has arranged for your present life, with the ability to lay treasures at His feet due to your surrender unto His will and ways. Also the tremendous JOY which will follow you in the way God will lead you and use you through these trials. All this with the assurance to experience His Mighty Hand in deliverance, healing, restoration, reunion, and so much more which you don't want to miss.

Right now I am very moved by the Holy Spirit, just by remembering what exercises I had to go through to become what God had in mind for me, and not who I decided to be. 
But looking back, it was worth it all. Through allowing God to mold me into His image I have experience great heights, have been raised from serious sick beds, have seen oodles of mighty miracles of which the first miracle was the instant healing of my oldest sister who suffered for 10 years from serious mental illness and hallucination. 
After that I counted nothing impossible with God. 

Beloved, be encouraged and go the extra mile with God, because He has something special lined up for you at the end, I promise because I know it.

Fear not for I am with you to deliver you, says the Lord Almighty. Look up for your redemption draws nigh. 

When Christ returns He will reward each person according to what he has done. HALLELUJAH!  AMEN!

Be greatly blessed by the Father.

In His service and for His glory,
Minister Dr. Trudy Veerman
