"How do you Hear God When He doesn't Seem to be Speaking."
- Michal Ann Goll


From: C. Hope Flinchbaugh (
Sent: Wednesday, February 04, 2004
Subject: Chinese warrior Nora Lam with Jesus

"Dear Men and women of God, I cried when I read the news that Nora Lam went to her heavenly home. Nora was forced to work in awful prison camps during Chairman Mao's Cultural Revolution. She was a warrior for China's underground church after her escape. Nora Lam, Fushia Pickett and Vestal Goodman went home to be with Jesus already this year. Last year, the men warriors went home (Bill Bright, Derek Prince, Kenneth Hagin to name a few). We need to STAND TODAY as women of God and move forward, leaning on our beloved Jesus, clothed in his purpose and power to minister his love and message."


Jim Caviezel (Jesus, in Mel Gibson's "The Passion of Christ") gives his first sit down interview since the movie's completion on the 700 Club (Pt.1 on Friday, February 6,2004 and Pt. 2 on February 25, 204)

Derene Shultz of THE ELIJAH LIST introduces Michal Ann Goll's Article:

"I was really blessed by Michal Ann's article below. It helped confirm to me that I AM hearing and receiving from the Lord, even when I am not hearing words and seeing visions. Many times in worship or during my quiet times with the Lord, I just know my spirit is receiving from the Holy Spirit, but I could never put it into words. Michal Ann has done that and more. This was very encouraging for me to keep one pressing in and know that He is there!" -- Derene Shultz, THE ELIJAH LIST

January 29, 2004,

Welcome to each and every one of you to our Women On The Frontlines devotional email. For those of you new to our email, our previous devotionals are available for further study and meditation by accessing them through our web site in the archive file at

Well, I'm sorry I couldn't be with you last month. As many of you know, I had to have some major surgery done the day after Christmas. I am recovering well, very well, as my doctors attest! The prayers of the saints have worked mightily on my behalf, and the Lord is receiving much glory through all this! I give my thanks to all those who have been lifting me up, and lifting up my family! Thank You!

Also, note that in the future, this monthly devotional will come on the last Wednesday of the month. We are making some administrative adjustments on the schedule of our work. So it will still come to your home with the same love and care as before!

Many Blessings!

Michal Ann Goll

Scripture - "[She said distinctly] My beloved is mine and I am his! He pastures his flocks among the lilies." Song Of Solomon 2:16

"I am His"

I want to share with you a little from my experience this past month. What a whirlwind! I'm not sure how long this will end up being - it may be very short! Most of my experience is still too new, too fresh to talk about right now, so please extend grace to me.

I want to speak of His abiding presence! It's so amazing how He walks with us, is always near us, even when a thousand voices seem to be screaming at us! He makes a deposit within our spirit every time we meet with Him, talk with Him. Then, when we enter a time of difficulty, He downloads those deposits, pulls them right up on our screen, and speaks the very essence of exactly what we need to hear, even when we don't feel like we are hearing anything. This "hearing" that I'm speaking of is difficult to explain. It certainly isn't the audible voice of God, it isn't a Scripture jumping off the page at us, and it isn't a prophetic word through someone. It is that deep, deep place inside our gut, where no specific language is spoken; it is the language of the Spirit that goes beyond words!

I want to share with you what the Lord shared with me during this past month. For clarity's sake, let me rehearse a little of the past month. I had a colonoscopy done which revealed three cancerous growths. As more testing was done, it was discovered that I also had gallstones and a fibrous growth (that means non-cancerous) in my uterus. I was advised to have my entire colon removed, and also to have my gall bladder and uterus removed. Three organs were in jeopardy! The condition of my colon, if left intact, could jeopardize my life! What was I to do?

Desperately Needing to Hear

I had many things to attend to. The kids were out of school, and Christmas was soon approaching. I had gifts to buy, food to cook, office work to keep up with, plus, of course, keeping our personal finances in order! I felt like I was running a 1000 miles an hour, and desperately needing to hear the counsel of the Lord. I didn't have time to sit still for hours, although I did spend many hours in the night before the Lord, asking, waiting, listening, and trying my best to abide!

In the midst of all this, this is what I heard, "I am my beloved, and He is mine!" Over and over again this comforting word came to me. No audible words, no dreams, just the "knowing" that I belonged to the Lord, and He belonged to me. How I longed to have an angel come visit me, a healing angel would have been wonderful in my opinion! I longed to have the Lord come to me, and cried out for Him to come! Ah, but He was already here-deep inside!

The Word was Written on My Heart

I was given the best "word" I could have possibly received! It was the most important "word" I needed to hear. I needed to meditate, think on, digest, and keep ever before my eyes, my heart! Bottom line, this is it! When the devil would come to assail me, and he came often, I just flashed the mirror into his eyes, so he could see what was written on my heart - "I am my beloved, and He is mine". This silenced the threats of the enemy, it doused water on the flames of his torment, and melted his threats of intimidation!

This is His Word to you, today, take it, live it, and breathe it! Let it soak deep inside of you. Remember, He knows this truth much more that you do! He is jealous on your behalf! He loves you with an everlasting love. His covenant with you is forever!

Be encouraged! Be strengthened! Let Him love on you today, deep inside your being, beyond the world of words!

Quote - "In the morning, prayer is the key that opens to us the treasures of God's mercies and blessings; in the evening it is the key that shuts us up under his protection and safeguard." ~ unknown

Prayer -

Dear Father, we come to You in the name of Jesus, Your Son. Today we want to experience Your abiding presence in an ever-deepening way! Help us to hear what You are saying to us today. Help us to hear the language of the Spirit, from deep inside You - to deep inside of us! Thank you, Lord, that You speak to us exactly what we need to hear! Give us grace to learn of Your faithfulness and Your great and awesome love for each one of us! We love you, and praise Your name today!
In Jesus' Name - Amen

Applications -

1) When you find yourself in the midst of uncertainty - believe in God - that He is not in that place! He is never uncertain! He knows and He has the answer you need!
2) Confess and proclaim His faithfulness.
3) Proclaim over yourself that you will hear what the Lord will speak. (That is scripture!)
4) Thank the Lord for His covenant with you.
5) Rest in the assurance of all these things!

If you have been helped today through this devotional, consider printing out 5 copies to give to people who maybe don't have e-mail capacity, perhaps to some of our elderly brothers and sisters in Christ.

Be blessed and encouraged this day!
