Beginning with, Understanding Comes Through & By Understanding, Part 1, By Karen Rowe.

Now, The Summary … Leading to the Conclusion!

The Breakthrough is that thing that is hindering you!

The Summary, By Karen Rowe.


Lord, I Pray we see the Salvation of the Lord working in the lives of us all Today. In Jesus Name, I pray.


We must face uncomfortable!  We must face our fears.  Friends, it is our fears of the uncomfortable that will keep us from enjoying our life.  Let me explain.  Where do you want to go, but don’t go, (or don’t enjoy to the fullest with the peace and joy in this life Jesus died and rose again to give you), because your mind has already received some “Preconceived Conditions”?  May I encourage you to face the uncomfortable (IF YOU ARE LED BY CHRIST JESUS)?


My testimony is simple, but it was not simple until I received the understanding to experience the freedom in Christ from opinions, that now that when you have faced your fears / “uncomfortable(s)”, you can relax and enjoy your entire day well with others & in Christ!

As you have been reading all along:

And the root of this Message?  As you have been reading all along:

Pause right here.  Pray.   And, if the Spirit nudges you, please go read about the Tares and the Wheat.  Getting what God has for us is so vital to receive.


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


As for me? 

To be patient with those I work with.  Treat people with kindness, fairness, and gentleness.  God, who knows the heart – something we cannot always discern – God expects us to do this.


So, this is growing like the power in a Locomotive!  Slow for us to begin, but sure to pick up speed in Christ as we grow on along with God!  Do you see the power of God speaking directly to your heart like I do?

Continuing as the Lord gives to me:

  • The field is the world
  • The good seed are the children of the kingdom of God.
  • But the tares are the children of the wicked one.
  • The enemy that sowed them is the devil
  • The harvest is the end of the world
  • The reapers are the angels

God knows, we might naturally want to ask Jesus … “Would Jesus like us to go and gather them up?”

Jesus replies no; and explains why in Matthew Chapter 18 and Verse 29:  No, lest while you gather up the tares you also uproot the wheat with them.

 Jesus replies no; and explains why

Are the “sons of the wicked one” among them truly evil people?  No.

The parable tells us they look and act similar to “the sons of the kingdom” …  you cannot tell them apart.

UNTIL we repent and turn to God, we are all walking “according to the course of this world, according to the prince of the power of the air, the spirit who now works in the sons of disobedience” (Ephesians 2:2).

Wherein in time past ye walked according to the course of this world, according to the prince of the power of the air, the spirit that now worketh

in the children of disobedience:

Satan influences by mood and attitude

“Satan influences by mood and attitude, and until we understand this; and actively resist his evil spirit at work, we can unwittingly be his agents.”

…Can we unwittingly be his agents?

I don’t want to look like a tare; do you?


“being the Wheat”

And, there is a purpose to “being the Wheat” – To love others well; right?  As, Jesus is the Good Seed sown in our heart by God!  But could we inadvertently sometimes be trampling through God’s Field with our opinions?   And, think on what Paul said, one sowed the Word of God; the other watered the seed with the word of God, but it was God who gives the Increase!  Right?  So without the Word of God, where is the INCREASE?


“Praising God, and having favour with all the people. And the Lord added to the church daily such as should be saved.”

SEE ALSO?  2 Cor 4:4; Rev 12:9


In whom the god of this world hath blinded the minds of them which believe not, lest the light of the glorious gospel of Christ, who is the image of God, should shine unto them.

Continuing on …

I am led by the Lord to paint this picture of the Revelation that I have received; that “could it be our very emotional opinions” that  could cause that potential uproot to the wheat before the good seed is fully taken root in the heart of some?  …  while we would be busy trying to remove the tares?

Don’t worry, I hope we can continue to grow in this revelation together.

Today is just a summary … Leading us all to the conclusion!

And the conclusion of all matters is? 


Ecclesiastes 12:13

“Let us hear the conclusion of the whole matter: Fear God, and keep his commandments: for this is the whole duty of man.”

King James Version (KJV)


Aren’t we as spectators down here?  You know, in this world – The Field God uses to show us His Love for us!  But we all have opinions; don’t we?  May I make a suggestion to you?  Ask God, Does your opinion matter to God?  Or, perhaps???  Could our opinions be like those birds that the enemy causes to land in our hair?


Could our opinions be like those birds that the enemy causes to land in our hair?


Could our opinions be like those birds that the enemy causes to land in our hair?

Here’s what I have learned, I can think I am right based on how I feel; and it will agree with God’s Holy Word too … BUT… and…BUT, if how I respond is based on how I feel then most likely I am wrong. 

Say what?

Here’s a Fresh Example:

Say what? Here’s a Fresh Example:  Rob turns on a light bright, sure, he didn’t make me feel like I am loved by him, but …. But …. But what does Jesus teach us friends?  

How we feel is a tool the enemy will use to shove us back into the curse of enmity, which is  – the seed the devil first sowed in Adam, in Eve and in their seed. 


And, Praise God for this Revelation!


What I have learned is that

love is patient and kind;

and the devil is a liar and the thief!

Okay, here it is!

Like this, if my husband knows I don’t like bright light, and Okay, here it is; and we should be close to wrapping this up as I sense the Lord’s voice directing me through this:

Painting a picture of love …

Since love is the Topic Jesus teaches us in …

and the Message is Unity;

& what is our part in this thing called relationships in God’s field, which God has also called the world, but to encourage each other daily (as long as God calls it Today btw) …

Do you remember me telling this testimony?

Once, at one time in our marriage, Rob and I would both drive each other crazy with what we thought was right about light!  In the morning, and for years, I would turn the lights low to none; and Robert would go behind me flipping on bright lights; only for me to go behind him, turning the lights down; for him to go behind me to turn the lights back up.  … a Picture of Opinions back and forth?

Robert just agreed that:  We each began to recognize this as a method the other would unknowingly / but willingly use as a frustration to the other, which it was frustrating to each of us.

*NOTE:  As frustration is a tool that the devil can and will use against us; unless we have grown to the Wiser of it … to respond to it in Christ!

Frustration / Agitation will come AT us,

but we have a choice not to let it come in us.


Frustration is also a method the enemy can / and will unwittingly use us to participate in his confusion & disorder …

… not forgetting the the enemy’s primary goal!

The enemy’s primary goal (to kill steal and destroy) is done through and by his method of:  to confuse us; divide us; and it is written in James 3:16, KJV:  “For where envying and strife is, there is confusion and every evil work.”

I am careful

with the Versions I share,

but God 1st began to teach me exactly like this:

It is written in James 3:13-18, NIV:

Two Kinds of Wisdom

13Who is wise and understanding among you? Let them show it by their good life, by deeds done in the humility that comes from wisdom. 14But if you harbor bitter envy and selfish ambition in your hearts, do not boast about it or deny the truth15Such “wisdom” does not come down from heaven but is earthly, unspiritual, demonic. 16For where you have envy and selfish ambition, there you find disorder and every evil practice.

17But the wisdom that comes from heaven is first of all pure; then peace-loving, considerate, submissive, full of mercy and good fruit, impartial and sincere. 18Peacemakers who sow in peace reap a harvest of righteousness.


So the devil tries, … But JESUS!!!

Remember that

Pure means, it doesn’t leave you double-minded about wanting God’s help to change your mind …


One day, years later, Robert asked me a simple question (mind you I have been taught to say that nothing is simple until understanding comes):  Rob asked me: “Do you know why I like the lights on bright?  I said, “No, Do you know why I like the lights on low?”

He said, “Because I can’t see; and I like to see.”  I didn’t know this!  I thought, I mean I really thought, this was how he showed me he didn’t care about how I feel!  I told him then, why I like the lights down low, because the lights hurt my eyes and I like to wake up slow.  I don’t like to be jerked into the day, I like to wake up slow and easy.


When understanding comes …

and this is the message to you too!

The next day:  We see love in Action!

I got up and went through the whole house turning every light in the house on for Robert!  Why?  Because, now that understanding had come to me, I was free to love / and there was no more fight.  But you want to know what was going on that I didn’t know?   I went to the bathroom and Robert only had the lights lit way down low … and friends, I wasn’t even in there!  I was in the other part of the house preparing the lights for him to see (my love for him), but he had already prepared this room to show his love for me.



This being said, the Lord gave this picture to me yesterday and I didn’t share it, because it wasn’t time, but I believe today, the Lord has lined this up for us to receive this Today.  I pray.

Painting a Picture & you get to decide if this is from the Lord for you; or not.

Ok, like if you went to an All-American; and good old-fashioned baseball game.  It’s a good day!  But what about that guy who insisted he would sit on the Home Plate to watch the same game?

We all bought a ticket to Watch, the rules are set; right?  Spectators sit in the stands.  The Home Plate has the purpose of the game nailed right to it!  Right?

Jesus is the Home Plate to this life & the total in this  World Series!

If we obey the common sense; all should go well with us right?  Shy of a fender bender in the parking lot; right?  But even then; isn’t there a correct way to respond ?  …and all will go well with us if we just do the right thing; by Faith & according to the rule of the law.   Right?

But now we have this guy sitting on Home Plate?  What’s he doing there anyway?  Doesn’t he hear the Ref?  Does he not understand that the ball is going to hit him?

What are the dangers of Disobedience?

Okay and like this:  At the end of a great day of Motor Cross riding, a dad tells a son, your done.  Why?  Because he sees a danger!  Grace got our son safe to us!  Grace revealed the slit in the tire
….at just the right time; and it is called!

Yet, the teaching continuing from yesterday’s Series Part 4:  The Pressure Comes Strongest Before the Breakthrough; what if our son said; “Just one more ride!”


Have you seen what the breakthrough is yet?


This has not been a simple understanding for me to get!


But as understanding is being revealed to me by Christ Jesus, through and by the Holy Spirit, I can share this much with you; as I get my permission from the Lord:  Because God wants you to succeed and Jesus has made it that we succeed together by being the Church He has made in us!

The Breakthrough is that thing that is hindering you! And, this is The Summary of this Series God has given me, called Jesus Gives Us Our Sight, By Karen Rowe.

It is possible to believe; and not to obey.

Our son, saw the slit in the tire too, but he, being still young in his mind, wanted to ride one more time.  The difference is in the obedience he demonstrated in his obedience to his dad.

SEE?  The Difference is in our obedience to our Father God, which art in heaven has called everything as done!  SEE?

Jesus said it is Finished!

Now, Faith, Hope and the greatest of these is Charity!



It is possible to believe and not to obey.

How do you agree with God?

The answer is by obeying God … and there is a SO THAT … all will go well with you and for those around you.


How do you agree with God?

Friends, Relationships are hard!  If you love each other; what we say and do will affect each other; as if our son were to get hurt, it would directly affect us too.  Think how we affect Jesus and how much has Jesus affected us?

Because of the love of Jesus who lives in us; Jesus is that love whom binds us to be a family.

Jesus is this bind for us here in this world.



As We can see God has said, not over my Son; Dad stood his ground, because dad is dad; and dad loves his son more than life itself.

What is life ?

What is life?   … That God so loved the world that He gave His only begotten Son for us / the world … SO that whosoever might believe shall not perish, but have everlasting life through Him.

God has blessed people who always do what is right. They obey the Lord ‘s Law .
Psalms 119:1 EASY


Forgiveness, Patience, Kindness, Gentleness is right.  Not I, but you Lord are right.

God is Right; I am the one being corrected.  The purpose is to mature to the this life Jesus has perfected for us through and by Resurrection Power!

What was so special about that low flowing cloud? or the Rainbow that revealed the sun? Or the rainbow that was set before my eyes to see on down the road? Forgiveness & Grace and Mercy is our God.
Lord, I pray you are seen.

Forgiveness?   So, All will go well with you…

and, when all is well with your soul.  You know the difference?

The Fruit of the Spirit is ?

22 But the fruit of the Spirit is love, joy, peace,

longsuffering, gentleness, goodness, faith,

23 Meekness, temperance: against such there is no law.


Have you been both sides?

A God who had done everything for us & a Son who well Qualified, but we sometimes just want to test the grounds beyond what the Holy Spirit nudges?


I hope not; but here we are:  Grace!  Don’t we all need God’s Grace!

Now we are so blessed by God; and by God’s Grace,  we can know it!


There is always another Scene …

And here we go back out … to the ball game?

One person can make a calamity out of a scene / 4 Big wheels on a 2 wheel track?   The dust wave is insane; but here we go again; what is love for our neighbor?  And, who is our God whom provides in all things!

And the Wind did blow!

Grace friends; you know…just encouragement to stay strong in Faith, hope & love!

We are all in this world together – Are we agreeing with God?

We are all in this world together – Are we agreeing with God?  Breakthrough comes After Understanding Comes about that thing that is hindering us.  …But the pressure gets strongest right before breakthrough, because we can just know and believe we are right; right?   

Let’s Focus on knowing and believing

(to agree with God)

rather than trying to be right!

Well, perhaps this is just for me; but I hope you receive this too!

Friends, when you receive this you will never be the same!

16 And we have known and believed the love that God hath to us. God is love; and he that dwelleth in love dwelleth in God, and God in him.


In other words,

we all need Jesus


God is not mad at us for fighting about lights;

Jesus just wants us to see that God has made everything all right!


Forgiveness & Repentance – What a gift from God!


If we will just sit in our seats and leave the home plate to Jesus;

He already won the game you know.

Let’s enjoy this thing called life – Together.


Yes, I believe we can!  And, with the Lord’s Help I will!  Does that mean, it will come without a struggle?  Absolutely not!  Just last night, I took offense, but and here it is …. In the morning a new revelation has come and I get to repent and grow even stronger in the Lord!


I don’t want to look like a tare; do you?

I hope you have enjoyed this Series so far.  I sure have!


Here’s The Summary …

The Intro:

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.”

 Then I said, “It’s all over!  I am doomed, for I am a sinful man.

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.”



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


Part 1:  Understanding Comes Through & By Understanding, Part 1, By Karen Rowe


Not being understood  . . .


Is hurtful.


Not being able to see like she saw …  Hindered my view of seeing to understand her point of view.

Now that I can’t see as well as when I was younger, I see better to understand her point of view.

Don’t we all like the freedom of seeing without wearing glasses?  If our sight didn’t require glasses?

In the same way, don’t we all like the freedom to be heard and understood; without the conflict from being misunderstood?  LIKE IF our understanding didn’t require Jesus?

Our Understanding Requires Jesus.


And that ye study to be quiet, and to do your own business, and to work with your own hands, as we commanded you;
1 Thessalonians 4:11 KJV


Part 2:  Relationships Are Hard, By Karen Rowe


Do you remember me writing about the woman who ran the bus-stop sign?  Do you remember the end of that testimony, I believe she was a Christian too?

Do you remember me writing how, we both argued about who was wrong; and how disturbing that was to the Holy Spirit who dwells in me?  Do you remember how I called my husband after she sped off laughing at me – convinced she had won something?


Spend more time on this thought:

Jesus loves people; and Jesus died, was buried, and 3 days later He was Resurrected, so that through Jesus the Christ, we might believe to receive God’s Spirit of Grace; and Eternal Life.


Spend more time on this thought:

Matthew 7:5, KJV

In the King James Version of the Bible the text reads: Thou hypocrite, first cast out the beam out of thine own eye; … You hypocrite! First, remove the beam out of your own eye, and then you can see clearly to remove the speck out of your brother’s eye.


Fighting with God is exhausting!  But when we come to rest in knowing that Jesus fights our battles for us; there is peace in knowing that “For God has So loved the world.”  Jesus come not to condemn the world, but that the world through Him might be saved.

I pray

warm oil pours

over you too

in this moment

to love people and pray for those whom you disagree with.



Have you ever noticed

when you just need

a word of greater understanding

& think, Surely someone has taught on This

& then open the Bible and discover it has been written.

Understanding brings Peace.


The Lord said it is enmity. 


I prayed; looking at a deeper understanding of enmity.  The Lord opened up to me the Book of Jeremiah  31 beginning verse 15.


The Lord said, don’t turn the page.  I was trying to go to Genesis; but the Lord strongly convinced me not to turn the page.



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

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:

There was no fast-forward back to the Beginning of the Book of Genesis!

Amazing Grace with Forgiveness

“I don’t want to abuse your grace; God I need you everyday”

God with me is my weapon.

“God is always Right; and I am the one that is being corrected.”

How do we agree with God?  Well, the next Division of this Series works deeply on understanding that we agree with God when we obey God.

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


God understands how enmity makes us feel.

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


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

How do we agree with God?  Well, the next Division of this Series works deeply on understanding that we agree with God when we obey God, but the pressure comes strongest before breakthrough.  What is the Break through?  But the thing that is hindering us.

“But he was wounded for our transgressions, he was bruised for our iniquities: the chastisement of our peace was upon him; and with his stripes we are healed (Isaiah 53:5, KJV).”


Let it begin with me.

The Lord has shown me that I had an opinion based on what God views as right and wrong, but still I was wrong,

because my opinion

stopped me from praying;

because could I have been judging?


Jesus Point?

“But he, willing to justify himself, said unto Jesus, And who is my neighbour?”
And, it is found written in Luke 10:29.

Pause to go read Luke 10:

What is this love

God had for the world

that required Jesus to be put to death for us

to be able to even know how to die to self!


When we agree with God, we obey Him.

We can believe in something and not obey it.


I was just wondering,

if you have agreed with God,

which is the science behind what it is to Believe God.


And, what is the Breakthrough?  The Breakthrough is that thing that is hindering you.

The Breakthrough that spirit of __________, what ever it is that is holding you back….

The Reason:  The devil doesn’t want you to be delivered from what it is; the devil does not want you to get break-through.



My dear friends in Christ,

If you want to overcome )))

your pressure is going to be stronger before you are delivered to your breakthrough.

BUT you can stand.

Whatever your problem is,

the pressure is going to come before you breakthrough it.




Pray with me?

Lord, I come to you admitting I need Jesus. Lord thank you Jesus for taking that beating for me. Thank you Jesus for taking that bruising for me. Thank you for going to that cross for me. God, help me to see! Am I loving those you love like Jesus commanded me to love? Am I completely trusting you Jesus to pray, even, God give me the strength to accept your will. Father you see all the opinions down here. Now, in this very hour, I take every thought captive to pray for those Jesus puts on my heart to pray for. I speak in Jesus Name to bind every attempt of the devil to divide our Nation & our Church. Father, Satan didn’t like it when he sAw the churches coming together, so he tried to divide us by wearing a mask & those who don’t. When that didn’t work, we continued to praise YOUR Name that we WILL love each other. And Satan didn’t like that either, so he tried to pull out hate. Satan tried to divide race against race, innocent against PeaCe-keepers, rioters as peaceful and violent & notion against notion. But praise God; your Church stands in Christ Jesus, the Savior & Lord! Father, may we see the Salvation of the Lord working out in these situations! Open the eyes of your people & Jesus reveal your self to those who haven’t known you. Lord, this I pray & believe. I agree with God & I believe to obey you King Jesus. JESUS, Lord of my mind, heart & very soul. Amen

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

Next articleDo We Put The Mask On Or Take The Mask Off? Angel’s Prayer Of The Day…
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.
