a Christian woman’s worth: she speaks of love

Here are some random quotes from the book “Compelled by Love” by Heidi Baker; quite challenging to the spiritual mind -I encourage all who long to walk deeper with Jesus into the depth of the vast ocean even in the midst of storm, where the fishes are, to read this book. She speaks of the love of Christ!

Children’s key: purity of the heart

My prayer is for all of us to stay hidden inside God’s glorious heart of love until we are manifesting His nature as sons and daughters, living , breathing, moving, healing, and life giving, just as Jesus was. As we are purified, we will see God more clearly. As our hearts become pure, our vision becomes clearer.

The fire of His eyes

Every time I have had a heavenly vision, I have been undone by Jesus’ eyes of love. They are like liquid flames of fiery love. And as that scripture just said (Song of Solomon 8:6-7), many waters cannot quench that love.

When He looks into us with His eyes like a flame of fire, eternity is branded on our hearts. Once we behold His face, we become more like Him, and then we can dwell in the fire of His embrace. (Isaiah 33:14-15)

Eat for a nation

When everything Jesus has is ours we can start to feed the nations. Attending a conference is not enough. You must eat and drink until you are dripping Jesus. You must be so full of Him that you start leaking Jesus. You must eat a lot-more than twice a year. You must eat enough for a nation.

The poor have taught me about hunger and thirst and my own need. In order to function and to make it through one day, I have to spend hours every day alone with my Jesus. I must have His presence or I know I cannot survive. I am always on my face in His presence. So I stay hidden in His heart, soaking in the secret place.

When I come up from that secret place I sometimes watch blind eyes turn from white to grey to brown as King Jesus heals them; I watch thousands of unreached people bow their knees to Jesus. And I watch previously miserable abandoned children swing on swing sets as they sing joyful songs to the Lord. My life must be one lived out of fullness and abundance. I will never claim to have anything on my own.

Holy Desperation

We only do what we do for Him in Jesus through Jesus with Jesus, to Jesus. We make ourselves totally available to Him. what joy to give one’s life for love.

From the Back Cover

What does it look like to trust God with EVERYTHING?  In Compelled by Love, Heidi Baker gives you a glimpse of total dependence and authentic Christian community by taking a fresh look at the Beatitudes. In the war-torn, poverty-stricken country of Mozambique, she and her husband have experienced God’s miraculous provisions and witnessed the transformed hearts of people caught in desperate life-or-death situations. Join them and discover the reality of God’s kingdom here on Earth. -For anyone wondering if they could truly live a life of radical love… -For anyone wondering if the Beatitudes mean anything… -For anyone wondering how to follow Jesus all the way… “If God is not with us, we do not want to continue. If the Sermon on the Mount is simply impractical, our mission work is hopeless. We have no backup plan. We have nothing but Him.”  –Heidi Baker
Biography
Heidi and Rolland Baker founded IRIS Global in 1980 (called IRIS Ministries at that time), and began ministering together in Asia. In 1995 they were called to the poorest country in the world at the time, Mozambique, and faced an extreme test of the Gospel. They began by pouring out their lives among abandoned street children, and as the Holy Spirit moved miraculously in many ways a revival movement spread to adults, pastors, churches and then throughout the bush all across Mozambique’s ten provinces. Heidi is now “Mama Heidi” to thousands of children, and oversees a broad holistic ministry that includes Bible schools, medical clinics, church-based orphan care, well drilling, primary schools, evangelistic and healing outreaches in remote villages and a network of thousands of churches. She has BA, MA from Vanguard University and her PhD from Kings College (University of London). A documentary film called Compelled by Love: The Film premeires January 5th, 2014 which features the life story of Rolland and Heidi Baker, narrated by Reinhard Bonnke.
