Part 3:  How Do We Agree With God?  Part 3, By Karen Rowe


Good Morning Dear Friends,

Today, as we look at what the Lord has given me in this 5 Part Series, in which the Lord has entitled for Today’s Message:  “How Do We Agree With God, Part 3.”  I am so blessed to begin this Today with a Fresh Testimony of the Power of the Presence of God!

You see, Day by Day, we work with what God gives us; don’t you too?  I mean, God makes the sun shine; and made the stars come forth; and each day is a day all of God’s own opportunities that He gives us to experience the power of the Presence of God.

Have you ever noticed that when you are going through a difficult time; the Lord is with you?

Have you ever noticed the Voice of the Lord still will say, “Go this way.”  And, “This is the Way, Walk in it.”  And, friends, there goes that Train Whistle Again!  Glory Hallelujah!

Did you read Hope in Today’s Devotion yesterday?  I mean the one that the Lord helped me do; that I did for Him, because I serve Him; and He helps me in ways like this?  I hope you do, because this is how God lined up this very Teaching Series, that He entitled:  “Jesus Gives Us Our Sight”; and the method God has given me to Teach in this Series; Day by Day; or Week By Week; or Month By Month … I cannot tell, but so far, it has been Day by Day.

This is what the Lord has done; and I believe you will see how this ties into this Series perfectly fit between Part 2, “Relationships are hard” and Part 3:  Today’s Message that the Lord has also entitled:  “How Do We Agree With God?”.

It all Rolled down like this:

After all was said and done:  Both the Series Part 2 was posted and The Daily Devotion was posted; I had time to reflect and the Lord prepared my heart for Today’s message – and I didn’t even remember the Title of Today, until after all God had done to show me His Presence with me!!!

SO THAT you have a complete idea

It began, and I recommend figure out a way to get the Bible App; and Let the KJV read aloud to you in fullness!  The difference?  Listening to the Bible read & read in fullness, is just like watching a movie undisturbed & with the volume turned up that you can hear every word and see every detail of a movie, SO THAT you have a complete idea of what the movie is all about!  What is the difference in getting up and leaving the room?  Was that part important for you to know, see and hear, so that you could follow along with understanding?  This!  Thank you Lord for that picture!  Friends, so this is what I did.

I have a wonderful speaker that will connect to my phone, which has The Bible App installed and used daily.  For sure keep your tangible Book handy too, but let it read to you!

1 Peter Chapter 4:8 was the Verse of the Day that we did the Hope in Today Ministries, Inc., Daily Devotion to God’s Holy Word on Yesterday; so God set this for me; and I just gave it all to God; The Bible began to read in 1 Peter Chapter 4 and I carried that speaker with me as I quietly cleaned the lake house; and let God’s Word minister The Revelations of Jesus to me.

Yes, I said Revelations of Jesus; and again, I believe this is the Lord helping me, because I prayed for His help, because God and me both know, it is HIM that I serve; not me.  And, God keeps me humble that I know that right well.

So, the Bible read through the end of Revelations!  Did you hear what that just said?  The End of Revelations.  The End of Revelations!  I can now tell you that there are 22 Chapters in the Book of Revelations, because when the Book ended, it ended.  When the Chapter was finished, the Book stopped reading.  There was no fast-forward back to the Beginning of the Book of Genesis!  But I could replay the last Book of Revelations again and again by just hitting play.

Have you ever noticed that any position in the Bible, you can go forward or backwards to where you begin, but not at the end of Revelations.  Let that sink in and when you receive this you will never be the same.

Let that sink in …

  • Pause right there; and come back later if you feel the nudge of the Lord …
  • Don’t miss your quiet time with God!

Here is where you left off …

Here is where you left off – If you took that focused time on hearing from God 1st to get the Revelation God wanted to give to you personally.

And, welcome back – I would love to hear the Revelations you have received from God too; I believe they would help me grow.  Now, let me continue telling what the Lord has done; and what the Lord has shown me:  As the Introduction in to Part 3:  How do We Agree With God.


My work was done.  My focused time with God was well-received by me!  I was so full of Praise and Adoration for Jesus; and grateful to God from the wells of my heart that fills my soul from DEEP within.

3 songs!  3 Revelations!

I loaded up the car with myself and just a few items -still thanking God from my heart!  As I drove up the hill and rounded that curve, I saw … I saw the glory of the Lord moving across the sky!  I saw a rainbow of colors surrounding the sun; and the clouds passed by – and as the song played with words singing & my heart praising Jesus ….

  1.  Amazing GRACE

The Glory of the Lord moves past; as the clouds moved past the sun to fully reveal the sun & as the words in my heart sang,  The Son appears … the sun was revealed!  I hope to insert pictures / and song; if the Lord allows. 

I have been reminded by the Lord, that at least one of the songs on this mile long road was Amazing GRACE!


The Song is posted at the end of Today’s Message for you to worship in your personal time!  Glory Hallelujah! Oh, Thank you Jesus!  I feel your Presence with me Lord, even as I listen to this song and type these words; to serve you.  Lord, I pray I serve you well!  Holy Spirit you are welcome here!


That road is about a mile long – just an old country road leading to our personal “Paradise,” on earth as it is … Painting a picture of as is a place of contentment; and also a place that has been a struggle to get there; as in further defined as an abode of Paradise that is set by God to hold us till Jesus comes back.  I hope I said that right, but I believe you can understand.


But as I was driving, I could sense the Presence of God so strong! He was in the Midst of my Praise and in front of my Thanksgivings!  I paused to take pictures and videos that I have not looked to see yet, but I wanted to keep my mind focused first to tell this the best that I can; because I believe this is how the Lord has given it to me to share with you too …

And, the purpose is not to boast in me; but to bind this together in this message:  How Do we agree with God?  Though the testimony yesterday about forgiveness –from the warm oil pouring on us; to the bottled jar the Lord opens in our heart ….I pray you see the Lord as the Presence of God with you.

We the Kingdom


from the warm oil pouring on us; to the bottled jar the Lord opens in our heart

After I saw this (Amazing Grace); and before I saw the big rainbow, there was a low cloud moving with me that caught my eye as quite spectacular in the sky!  There was something different about that cloud; and the song playing was singing, “I don’t want to abuse your grace; God I need you everyday”  … and my heart was praying.



3.  Natalie Grant – My Weapon (Sacred Version)

As I drove on, I saw a rainbow; and Lord, I hope I get to share that with you too!!!  What makes this rainbow so special?  I was praying and the song was singing  from my heart with the song singing on K-Love… Your Presence With Me Is My Power … and can I add, my praise!

Now, as we enter into this time of meditation:

Remember God is The Almighty and in charge of Everything & Every Place  All The Time …

What was it Abraham Lincoln said,  … when someone thought  God was on his side;  he said,

I don’t worry about that, I worry about if I am on His side!

What that means to me is,

He knew God is always RIGHT and that he was the mistake-maker …

If I could put it in the words God has given to me personally, “God is always Right; and I am the one that is being corrected.”

I hope you enjoyed that: This is my

Part 3:  How Do We Agree With God?  Part 3, By Karen Rowe


Intro into Part 3: 

What Reflections did you draw from Matthew Chapter 13:24-30; & 36-43 ?

What Reflections have you drawn from 2 Corinthians Chapter 10

Do you know what Isaiah says? 



I hope you have read:  The Intro; and Parts 1 & 2 :

Now, Welcome to Part 3:  How Do We Agree With God?  By Karen Rowe


Perhaps, you can identify with Isaiah, I heard the Lord asking, “Whom should I send as a messenger to this people?  Who will go for us?  I said, “Here I am.  Send me.”  I said it too (years ago & every day since), BUT Let’s look beyond our human heart that wants to serve God to hear what happened & what is the difference in how we can serve JESUS?

Perhaps you can also identify with what Isaiah said,

Perhaps you have doubted your value to Serve King Jesus???
Hence the Title:
Jesus Gives Us Our Sight, By Karen Rowe

Perhaps you can also identify with what Isaiah said, Beginning in Verse 5; and It Is Written in Isaiah Chapter 6, “Then I said, “It’s all over!  I am doomed, for I am a sinful man.  I have filthy lips, and I live among a people with filthy lips.  The KJV uses the word, Woe is me, for I am undone!  Yet …God is revealing something greater to us here!  Isaiah continues with , “For my eyes have seen the King, The LORD of hosts.”


THEN, something supernatural happens!  Isaiah writes, Then one of the seraphim flew to me, having in his hand a live coal which he had taken with the tongs from the altar.  Verse 7, And he touched my mouth with it, and said:


Behold, this has touched your lips; your iniquity is taken away, and your sin purged,”

Also I heard the voice of the Lord saying:  Whom shall I send, And who will go for Us?”  {NOTICE THE CAPTIAL “U” in Us?   THEN … (as God writes Isaiah’s testimony) … I said, “Here am I!  Send me.”  And, He said, “Go, and tell this people:  “Keep on hearing, but do not understand; Keep on seeing, but do not perceive.”


Hence: The Title of this Intro:
• The Intro: Have You Been Touched By the Coal On Your Lips? Intro, By Karen Rowe


I don’t know about you, but I have had to absorb this from the Lord!

What has God done now that Christ has come!

Holy Spirit you are welcome here!  Help me deliver this message as you have given it unto me.  To teach in the power of Your knowledge and to minister in the power of your Spirit and to God be the Glory to love in the power of your LOVE, Oh Jesus I pray.  Lord open the eyes of our Heart, Lord.




Continuing on ….


Our carnal nature can only agree with carnal nature.


The Spirit agrees with the SPIRIT.




Does that make us wrong?





It makes us see that God put enmity between us and relationships with each other…when sin entered into the seed of Adam & Eve …


By sin, carnal nature entered both male & female and into our very seed …


But God also gave us hope for a future!


Jesus is the Good spiritual seed.





In closing,


If the carnal nature must die.

The spiritual nature will live.


Like a garden, you plant what you love; right?


And you remove the weeds – why?


Why does our carnal nature have to die? So our spirit will grow.


And back to enmity … I needed to understand more…






Lord, Jesus, help us pray for those under the curse of enmity. That the enmity will be removed by the opening up of our hears to hear your Word minister unto our very soul. That our eyes will be opened up the freedom in Christ to love each other with all spiritual understanding in your Holy Word and with all love for others … and our prayers for others that we don’t quite understand …But oh Lord, You do!
Lord, can these bones live? Only You know Lord. Then, let us pray over these bones that have already been prophesied over.
Breathe your Spirit upon them. This Lord, I thank you personally for; and I also pray.



And what does an old book like Jeremiah have to do with being understood?

I felt rejected & wondered why. I didn’t tell God I wanted to cry. By Faith, I did a few good things that served in what I felt in my heart I should do (IN SPITE OF HOW I FELT).
During that time, I hear the voice of the Lord say to me, it is because of enmity!
I know this word! But Lord, I need to understand.
I began to read / research the Bible’s definition of enmity.
I said, Lord, BUT what is the SOLUTION? I know it is Christ! Help me understand HOPE in Jesus MORE and MORE!
Then, I opened my Bible – It opened to the Book of Jeremiah .
The Lord said, don’t turn the page – LOOK at what I say!



God understands how enmity makes us feel.


And God said, dry your tears.  I understand.  I have taken care of every thing.


And now I See!










I hope this is a blessing to you.




What is the wheat good for ?

43 Then shall the righteous shine forth as the sun in the kingdom of their Father. Who hath ears to hear, let him hear.


At this time, please pause to pray for understanding; and go read about the purpose God has for you in your life.


Reflecting:  What revelations have you drawn from Matthew 13:24-43


Growing:   What Reflections can you draw from 2 Corinthians Chapter 10:

 (KJV and take a look at NLT):   Verses 1, 2, 3, 4 … 3, 4, 5 … 7, 8


Believing:  HOW?  Do you know what Isaiah says?  Prepare for Part 3 by reading Isaiah Chapter 6.

Hence: The Title of this Intro:
• The Intro: Have You Been Touched By the Coal On Your Lips? Intro, By Karen Rowe


I hope you have / or will read:  The Intro; and, Parts 1, 2, 3, 4, 5:


Hint?  29 But he said, Nay; lest while ye gather up the tares, ye root up also the wheat with them.


Up next?   Part 4:  Pressure Comes Strongest Before The Breakthrough!  By Karen Rowe


Just in …

“There be No Powers but The Powers of God and The Powers that be are Ordained of God …Who but God sent the Plagues on Egypt …So Folks see a Big satan and A little GOD … What little power satan has he gets it from GOD … JOB 2-6

& To see that it was just The Carnal side of Job God was telling what he (Job) could and could Not do … Look At Job 9-18 …(Pastor … waiting on permission to use his name.), but I believe he gives me permission to quote, because I have peace; and Jesus is our Lord.”

Continuing on …






It is a different Love!  Jesus!  Follow Jesus!

Love in Christ,

and the Hope in Today Ministries, Team!  We need each other to get to where God calls us to go!





Jesus peers before us, so He already knows … Faith in Christ is where all blessings from God are discovered! Follow Jesus and Trust in God. There is no fear in Love, but perfect love drives out fear. That’s why there is a calm that comes over you when you hear the Word of God preached. And that is why fear creeps in AT you when you hear the media preach. JESUS calms the storms and there is no mountain Satan can build high enough that faith IN CHRIST can’t tear down. Jesus is the name above all names.

Faith pleases God. And it is impossible please God without faith.

BUT LET a man EXAMINE himself, AND SO LET him eat OF THAT bread, and drink OF THAT cup.
1 Corinthians 11:28 KJV

FOR THIS CAUSE many are weak and sickly among you, and many sleep.
1 Corinthians 11:30 KJV

Blessed is the man that endureth temptation: for when he is tried, he shall receive the crown of life, which the Lord hath promised to them that love him.
James 1:12 KJV


And, Always Remember 2 Things!

1.  When you receive this, you will never be the same!

2.  God for us.  God with us.  God in us. 

NOW … Believing on Jesus, 


After this manner therefore pray ye: Our Father which art in heaven, Hallowed be thy name.

10 Thy kingdom come, Thy will be done in earth, as it is in heaven.

11 Give us this day our daily bread.

12 And forgive us our debts, as we forgive our debtors.

13 And lead us not into temptation, but deliver us from evil: For thine is the kingdom, and the power, and the glory, for ever. Amen.

Matthew 6:9-13 King James Version (KJV)

Holy Spirit You are Welcome Here!

And to God be the Glory!

Love in Christ,




Holy Spirit encourage the readers today.  Lift our minds higher to God’s Thoughts.  Bless those who will receive.  And, keep molding our hearts to be always ready to bloom for the glory of God to be a blessing to us all.

and pray …in the Spirit of the Most Holy God.  God knows what He is doing.

Love in Christ,

Meet Karen: Hi, I am blessed, by God's good grace and because I know Jesus, I am blessed. I choose to be blessed, because I have a choice set before me and I refuse to look down. I trust God and I know and believe in the love God has for us. I have overcome difficulties; and I am blessed by the grace of God alone. If I have written about it, then I have felt the pain of it in some way, and to some degree. Did you know that Jesus has felt your pain? This is why I write. By God's grace I can identify; and tell you honestly, yes there is hope in anything and everything that you are facing today! Jesus is our Hope! He is the Truth, the Way and the Life. I am married a wonderful man, Robert Rowe; I love my husband and he loves me; and we have been married for 28 years. Together, we have been blessed with a wonderful daughter, named Amanda who is college now; and a wonderful son, named Daniel who is growing up well and soon to graduate elementary school. We work together and by God's grace we run our own business called PSI. We have a pastor over our ministry and over our business and also we depend on him for advise in our family. We have 2 dogs, 4 horses, 2 cats and love to spend time outdoors by the water and by campfires ... that is it seems when we can find time away from life's busy schedule. I love to write because it helps me learn more about God. And, I am driven by a passion from a love that God has put in my heart to share from my experiences and struggles, as I gain understanding in God’s Word to know how effective and powerful God is over our every situation! I share with you so you can know that you are not alone in your struggles. The same God who helps me and my family, is your help and shield as well! Life is not always easy, but it is possible –I like to share the difference that following Jesus makes in my life. And, I love to share God's patience and mercy and love that is with me! I am not perfect, but am experiencing God sanctify me through and through with every mistake I make; and yes, overcome in Christ! Life is not just about the successes; life on this earth is also about the troubles we overcome to discover what God has hidden in our faith to find! Troubles are more a challenge to grow in our faith ... It is not easy, but in the end the grace of God we discover is worth experiencing God in the midst. By Grace, I have discovered Jesus is Peace and He is my Joy and Wisdom from Heaven. God is our Provider and Healer and Creator, who is our help and shield over all things. By grace, I have experienced a nearness to God through my faith in His Son! We are well forgiven by God; and well blessed when we know and believe the love that God has for us. To say, "all is well with my soul" is a powerful knowledge to understand and experience. I sense God's desire for you to know His love for you and how deep His love for you is that He has SO loved you; God gave you His Son. God loves you right now just as you are! There is so much to learn! I believe that as we learn from God, we are God’s gift to each other. It is all God’s story –and for His glory; and God has SO loved us. I love to paint the vision that God has given me about a Father’s love –that God wants you to dream again and visualize His love for you! In God’s eyes, there’s more to life than we see; and in a world that sometimes misrepresents and misunderstands God and love; God wants you to have the courage to dream His dream and see His vision of a Father’s love for you! Many years ago, I prayed to God, “How can I tell a million people what I know about Your Son?” God showed me I had a gift of a ministry about God's Love; and He called it Hope in Today! I write to please God and I write to encourage you; and I write to spend quiet time with God. All because of this love that God has first shown me! I need Jesus –and my life is about my relationship with God. And, every blessing begins with Him! Love in Christ, Karen Rowe, Director Hope in Today Ministries, Inc.
