“My Hand Follows My Face”
By Karen C. Jones
“Why do you doubt My love?”
I was startled. “I know You love me,” I replied. And immediately in that moment I knew what Peter felt like when he and Jesus had that whole conversation going on about love and feeding sheep.
“If you knew it, you’d be more at peace and at rest. You’d know deep inside that I AM always with you. I have a solution for EVERYTHING. You need to REFOCUS your eyes on My love for you that is shining in My Eyes and going into your eyes. Do not be so frantic grabbing for My hand to move for you. My Hand follows My Face.”

What could I say? My Lord was right. Like Martha, I allowed myself to be troubled by things Jesus wasn’t troubled about at all. I found myself busy doing life and in the process started letting the things I was doing with my hands take the lead over stopping and staring into His Face. All of my doing was getting in the way of my being. Do you get what I’m saying? Gotta fix that. Gotta get this done. There are just some things that I must accept I cannot change. All my efforts to control things are powerless unless I stop and stare into those Eyes of love. I had chosen doing before just being.
I finally got it though. I thought Martha always got a bad rap. Nothing’s wrong with doing things for the Master. Nothing’s wrong with preparing and taking care of the things of God. If Martha didn’t work, it looked like nothing would have gotten done. The thing is the Master is the One Who is waiting for us to take a breath and just pause. He already knows what He’s going to do. He has us covered. Sit a spell and listen to Him. I just had to stop and ask God to simply help me. I was seeking Him about all those things weighing on my mind that I wanted Him to fix through my own methods! And I was at the same time trying to prepare things to suit the way I thought best. Oh, so I’m by myself on this one?
It was then I heard those words:
“Why do you doubt My love for you?”
Here’s what I sense our Lord is saying to us. God wants us to use our hands. He also desires His Hands to move on our behalf. He does want us to do things and take action. But He’d much rather we choose to be with Him at any given moment. Drop the broom and go be with Him. Then, afterwards get up and get at it. He doesn’t want our doing to be at the expense of being in His Face. It’s in the Eye to eye moments with Jesus that with one look of His Eyes, the worries, stressors, anxieties, fear, torment, distress, confusion, the wondering, the furtiveness….all of it just melt away.
Instead, with one look of His eyes as we stare into His Face, He infuses into us what is inside of Him…He burns into us His love, joy, peace, purpose, rest, destiny, calmness, clarity, strength, fortitude, champion’s heart, more than a conqueror mindset, His ability, His grace, His power, His life, His thoughts, His plans….Himself!
Those face to Face and eye to Eye moments are intended to remind us that His image, His likeness, His DNA are who we really are. The intense, immeasurable love of the Father, Son and Holy Spirit is what I needed to cling to on when He spoke those words to me. I just had have a reminder that looking into His Face of love always triggers His Hand to move. And that can never be taken away from me. His Hands really do follow His Face.
“There is only one thing worth being concerned about. Mary has discovered it, and it will not be taken away from her.”
Luke 10:42 – NLT
Lord, when you said to me, “Seek my face,” my inner being responded, “I’m seeking your face with all my heart.”
Psalm 27:8 – TPT

A WORD FOR YOU TODAY!
A word by Joel Yount:
Several years ago while walking at a park an Eagle had flown right over me carrying what looked like a dead snake. The one thing that amazed me was how low the Eagle was flying as it flew above me. It was as if God was highlighting this occurrence that I had never experienced before.
Before seeing the Eagle and the snake, I had been walking around the park praying and declaring scriptures for breakthrough regarding a situation. Leading up to this time, it seemed as if there was an escalated season of attack from the enemy as someone had attempted to shut the Spirit Fuel website down. However, God stepped in and the individual responsible for that attempt did not succeed. Praise God!
Pay Attention To Signs God Reveals To You
God had stepped in many ways in only he could do. The escalated attacks had ceased. The Lord revealed to me that the Eagle had represented His power and protection coming down and taking the enemy (the snake) out of his place.
The Lord instructed me to send this testimony out today because He wants to remind many of you that nothing is hard for Him. He will send signs in the natural that relate to what is going on in the supernatural.
The prayers and declarations of saying scripture out loud at the park had activated something in the Spirit realm I believe. One important action I had taken before this event was sowing several seeds into different ministries. This act stretched my faith. When I saw what God did and how he turned the enemy’s plans upside down I was amazed. God is turning the enemy’s plans upside down in your own life today! Do something in the natural to activate the supernatural in your life today.
Right now I encourage you to sow a seed of $50, $25, $100, or $500 into Spirit Fuel and name it “Breakthrough” as an act of faith. By sowing a seed today into Spirit Fuel, you will be helping to reach more people on the internet for the Kingdom of God. It takes a dedicated team and resources to maintain the Spirit Fuel platform.
