Hello, Father.
THANK YOU for the breakthroughs early this morning, when I grew weary of trying to sleep and decided to get up and work. THANK YOU for the patience and compassion that my Mate showed me right when I felt like I was breaking down, and thank you for the encouragement of being able to show him — almost immediately — how his kindness paid off. I may not have everything worked out yet, but I feel a LOT better having created the foundational structure upon which to build. Lord, please be near my Mate this day as he works with a man who might be a problem, and on a project that is bound to test his patience, if not his physical stamina. Strengthen him, Father — in body, mind, and spirit. Thank you for touching him last night, giving him a huge dose of your strength already. I feel humbled and privileged to witness some of the intense interactions of your Spirit with all the hardcore men around me, and them with each other. I am delighted that there are still men who do not let themselves be TAMED by any master but you, Lord. I feel honored to be one of your Little Ones, looking to you for all of my needs and desires. I trust you completely, faithful Shepherd. Lead on! 🙂

 
Luke 11:14-28 ERV

One time Jesus was sending a demon out of a man who could not talk. When the demon came out, the man was able to speak. The crowds were amazed. 
But some of the people said, “He uses the power of Satan to force demons out of people. Satan is the ruler of demons.” 
Some others there wanted to test Jesus. They asked him to do a miracle as a sign from God. 
But he knew what they were thinking. So he said to them, “Every kingdom that fights against itself will be destroyed. And a family that fights against itself will break apart. 
So if Satan is fighting against himself, how will his kingdom survive? You say that I use the power of Satan to force out demons. 
But if I use Satan’s power to force out demons, then what power do your people use when they force out demons? So your own people will prove that you are wrong. 
But I use the power of God to force out demons. This shows that God’s kingdom has now come to you. 
“When a strong man with many weapons guards his own house, the things in his house are safe. 
But suppose a stronger man comes and defeats him. The stronger man will take away the weapons that the first man trusted to keep his house safe. Then the stronger man will do what he wants with the other man’s things. 
Whoever is not with me is against me. And anyone who does not work with me is working against me. 
“When an evil spirit comes out of someone, it travels through dry places, looking for a place to rest. But it finds no place to rest. So it says, ‘I will go back to the home I left.’ 
When it comes back, it finds that home all neat and clean. 
Then the evil spirit goes out and brings back seven other spirits more evil than itself. They all go and live there, and that person has even more trouble than before.” 
As Jesus was saying these things, a woman with the people there called out to him, “Blessings from God belong to the woman who gave birth to you and fed you!” 
But Jesus said, “The people who hear the teaching of God and obey it—they are the ones who have God’s blessing.” 

 
Lord, help me to not be a fool and try to work against you, even when I don’t realize I am doing it. Please give me wisdom, patience, humility, and courage so that I can do your will and not just whatever I think I need to accomplish. Help my heart and mind find rest inside the peace that you provide for those who love and serve you. Let me be found faithful, and let my Mate and children be FREE and have a personal, intimate relationship with you — the two things I desire most in this lifetime. THANK YOU for hearing my heart, Lord God. Amen. 🙂
