About Karen Lemburg

Hi I'm Karen, wife, mother and grandmother. I am on the journey of a more intimate relationship with God. I'm blessed to married to a wonderful husband who is also in pursuit of intimacy with our Lord. We work together in real estate and ministry. We have four children and seven grandchildren.

Worship is Warfare

Worship is warfare. It defeats the enemy. Go out and do some damage to the kingdom of darkness today. Worship with everything you’ve got. I will defeat your enemy as you praise Me. I will reroute your foe as you give thanks. Lift up your voice. Cry aloud, sing, praise, shout for joy, for I am your Mighty Warrior. I am your defender. I go before you to make your path straight. Believe Me. Stand in the midst of your enemies and praise Me even when you don’t feel like it. I am your Warrior King who goes before you and defeats your enemy.

Weakness

My child, I know your weakness, I understand your struggles. I took on the form of a human so I can relate to what you are going through. I love you even though you sin. I pursue you even when you don’t pursue Me. My love for you is endless and everlasting. Never think that I am mad at you. I am mad about you. 

Abide In Me

My child, you don’t have to worry or be anxious about what the future holds because I hold the future. I hold you in the palm of My hand. If you remain in Me, then I will place you where I want you. So don’t fret, just learn to abide in Me, believing that My plan is unfolding as you walk in obedience with Me. Believe Me My child. Your future is bright. Make the most of the now. I will take care of the rest. 

My Word

O My child, listen to My Word. For in My Word there is life, wisdom and joy. My Word is your food. You need it more than natural food. Come and I will reveal mysteries and show you My kingdom. You will live in the super-natural world when you eat and drink of the super-natural food of My Word. Immerse yourself in it. Believe it. Meditate on it and memorize it. For My food will not only satisfy your soul it will make you alive and fruitful. When you spend time in My Word, you are spending time with Me. I will speak volumes to you if you take the time to listen. For My Word is powerful, living, active and sharper than a two edged sword, piercing as far as the division of soul and spirit of both joints and marrow, and able to judge the thoughts and intentions of the heart. Hebrews 4:12

Hard Work

My child,  you want something that only comes from hard work and much discipline. If you want to be good at something, you have to work at it. It will not just come naturally or fall in your lap. To master a craft it takes time, knowledge, discipline and practice. Too many people are taking the easy way. They want comfort over success, pleasure over hard work. Set your heart and mind on Me and I will lead you in the way you should go. Will it be easy? No, but it will be worth it. Do not grow weary in doing good My child, for in due time you will be rewarded. 

Intimacy

My word for you today is Intimacy. This is what I desire from you most. Stop all the ‘doing’ today and just ‘be’ intimate with Me. Listen to My hearts cry for you in John 17. My desire is for oneness. Come to Me My child and rest today. Rest your mind, your emotions and your body. I am here to be intimate with you, to embrace you and to pour out My lovingkindness on you despite any of your flaws or failures. Let Me love on you today. Embrace intimacy with Me today. Your Father who is crazy about you.

Run To Me

My child, I am your faithful Father. I will always be with you. There will never be a time when you won’t be able to come to Me because I am always here waiting with open arms. I desire intimate relationship with you. I desire communion and fellowship. Never think that I am far away. I am so near. You will find Me when you seek Me. When you run to Me I will welcome you into My arms. I love you with an everlasting love. I long to embrace you and pour out My love on you. Don’t run from Me. Run to Me. I have a wonderful adventure planned for you. Your Father and lover of your soul. 

Joy Comes

Joy comes in the morning. I am restoring your joy. Look for it. Be expecting it. Don’t lose hope. Put your hope in Me. I will never fail you. This world is full of disappointments, but I will never disappoint. Discipline yes, but I am not out to destroy you. Only to bring you to a place of complete dependence on Me. Only then will I cause your destiny to appear. Only then can you walk in complete satisfaction and fulfillment. Depend on Me alone to bring you happiness and joy. Everyone and everything else will fall short. Joy comes when you realize I am your Source of all good things. I alone can satisfy. I alone can fulfill. There are no substitutes.
