I heard Him say, “You are the apple of My eye – the one I cherish above all others.”
As I was in deep worship meditation, I heard this evangelist speak these words, “You are the apple of my God’s eye.” His statement stirred something within my spirit and I began to respond in listening and writing.
First I worship, and then I listen.
“Lord, what are You trying to say?” and then second, I rest.
The Lord will not withhold His words and secrets to those who are lovers of His presence. Why? Because it is only IN HIS PRESENCE can we find fulfilment and the real definition of joy that is full and everlasting. How do I know that I am in His presence? You feel and you know it. The Holy Spirit tells you. How do I know I love God? When you no longer look for something or someone in this world that you think will satisfy your soul and now you are sure where to find it. When you put Him above all else. When you go to church and be like, “I don’t care if they criticise me with how I worship or dance before the King. I will stand here before You and I’m only focusing on You.” Focused. Eyes fixed on Jesus. Fully dependent on Him.
“But first and most importantly seek (aim at, strive after) His kingdom and His righteousness [His way of doing and being right—the attitude and character of God], and all these things will be given to you also.”
Matthew 6:33 AMP
See, this is what the Lord has been teaching me since last year: to rest in Him and allow Him to speak with no distractions. It is only when we rest will we be able to clearly hear the voice of the Lord. It is only when we rest will we fully know what He thinks of and about us. Yes, you have the Bible. But you will only understand full well once you have experienced true rest.
Of course, resting and waiting come together. When you rest and wait for Him, it will never be without Him. Waiting is with Him and it is called engaging. The only way that we can begin a journey toward rest is to give ourselves permission to stop.

The Lord had been wanting to share you secrets a long time ago! The problem is your eyes are focused on materials that will fade, education that will not be used in heaven, money that can lead you to greed, focusing on work instead of taking time to rest. The problem is your ears are widely open to the noise of your surrounding instead of being surrounded by the noise of the angels. Your ears are wide open to the corrupt songs of this world, making you think when you come back to worship that you are not worthy because of what you have been listening to. WORLDLY SONGS CAN CORRUPT YOU!
Rest and sharing secrets can only happen when you learn to love, to hunger, to have a…. REAL – ationship with the Father. Yes, it is called relationship at di siya nabibili lang. Di siya peke. You will learn to cherish it when you learn to dine with Him.
So do not let this world pollute your minds. Fight those kind of thoughts and submit your mind, will and emotion to the Spirit of God. My spirit determines who I am, and “who I am” is that I am full of God. I know I can rest in Him and He will make known to me His secrets.
“We demolish arguments and every pretension that sets itself up against the knowledge of God, and we take captive every thought to make it obedient to Christ.”
2 Corinthians 2:5 NIV
The only secret that you are allowed to record and write is the ones given by the Lord. Oh dba, privileged tama? Isipin mo kayang i-sulat ang mga sikreto ng kaibigan mo noh. Hello, weirdo ka? Haha!
Yeah! Once you learn how to rest, the process of waiting, you have the right to WRITE every single secret and love letter from the lover of your soul.
Out of all that He created, He chose you. The Creator of the universe picked you out of all that He could have chosen to share His secrets to. Tell me now, isn’t that awesome? I mean… 😍
Now listen to Holy Spirit and put on a worship song that will shift the atmosphere wherever you are right now and ask Him to teach you how to rest. Ask Him to open your spiritual ears that they shall be opened in Jesus’ name to the voice ONLY of the Father and not the lies of the enemy! It will not happen in a snap, but as you practice resting, willing to rightly position your heart, watch Him show and speak to you!
Tonight, 20th of August 2018, as I am typing this at 23:02, this is what the Father is telling me. It is a secret, yes, but I am willing to share to those hearts are open to receive the same Word.
This is what the Lord told me…
“You are the apple of My eye. When you speak, I am all ears. I look at you because you came from Me and I simply love you. I rescued you from the deception of this frail world because I know you. Rest in this assurance that your hunger for My presence and your time spent with Me is never wasted. Otherwise, you will not be the apple of My eye. But now that you have become, I will take you to places you have never been. I will hide you under My wings, and the same wings will let you soar like an eagle. Worship Me with your praise-filled lips. Do not sing to anybody else. Lay down with Me in green pastures. Let us listen to the beautiful sound of the Dove together. Do not take your eyes off of Me. You are loved by Me and I cherish every moment with you. You are the apple of my eye and I will cause you to bloom because I know you. My beloved, My bride, I rejoice in you.”
I am excited to hear what the Lord is telling you! Feel free to ask me questions, or share with me your thoughts and God’s thoughts for/about you! Don’t try too hard to hear. Just keep listening and as I said, w a i t . He will speak when He wants to. Don’t interpret it yourself. Delikado. Dangerous.
“Rest in the Lord, and wait patiently for him:
fret notthyself because of him who prospereth in his way, because of the man who bringeth wicked devices to pass.”
