Look for the little surprises. Don’t you know that I delight in giving good gifts to My children? I desire to show Myself as your Good Father who bestows on you both that which you’ve requested and those things that you have dreamed of in your heart that you have asked of Me. If I will take care of you in the small stuff, will I not also be the Father who will step into your circumstances in the significant, as well? This is covenant relationship – one in which the other can be counted on in every way, no matter what. You can count on Me. Come, let me turn what is the everyday norm into an extraordinary life in Me. John 21:12, “Jesus said to them, ‘Come and eat breakfast.’ Yet none of the disciples dared ask Him, ‘Who are You?’ – knowing that it was the Lord.” NKJV
When you feel like you’re falling apart, know that I am the God who is holding the pieces together, refusing to let go. Let Me walk through this with you. You’re in a battle, and you’ve grown weary. This is the time for boldness and strength. Now is the time to be stubborn and obstinate, pushing forward and refusing to let go. I have not forgotten My promise, and I am with you in your pursuit. Already I’ve released angelic hosts to fight alongside you, and My Word which I have spoken out of My mouth will accomplish what I have sent it to do. Be anxious for nothing, keeping your focus on Me. I will lead you through this rocky terrain, and you will come out on the other side victorious – whole and an Overcomer in Me! Josh. 1:9, “Have I not commanded you? Be strong and of good courage; do not be afraid, nor be dismayed, for the LORD your God is with you wherever you go.” NKJV
I’ll stand with you in the fire, I’ll reach for you in the storm, I’ll speak to you in the silence, and rejoice over you with a song. There’s no place you can hide from the pursuit of My love; no place you can flee where I will not follow. You are created by Me, embraced by Me, sustained by Me, loved by Me. The completion you’ve longed for, the missing piece, can only be found in Me. Let Me be both Lord and Lover of Your Soul. For you I came, for you, I died, and for you, I live. Now live with Me – the One who will hold you tenderly, drawing forth the purpose I placed in you so long ago, and let us walk together on this journey, putting your hand in Mine, secure in knowing you’ll never be abandoned and you’re never alone. Let My heart be forever imprinted upon your own. I John 4:16, “We have come to know and have believed the love which God has for us. God is love, and the one who abides in love abides in God, and God abides in him.” NASB
I am searching out those whose hearts are prepared for Me; a people who are positioned to receive and walk in the breakthrough anointing I am releasing. Many have prayed for a breakthrough, but not all have aligned themselves so that at My Word they can push past the barriers that have been holding them back. Some have just walked away in despair. I am calling you to stand in front of your wall once more and see what I will do on your behalf. Once more I am going to speak the Word that causes walls to crumble and doors to fly open. Position yourselves and prepare to praise, for though you’ve prayed long, you have stood faithfully, and now I am going to show My faithfulness again. Return once more that you can see the salvation of your LORD as I make a way through to what the enemy has tried to prevent. My Church will stand with strength and might, and the gates of hell will NOT prevail against it! Prepare to break through the walls that have stood against you to retrieve that which the enemy has stolen, plunder hell, and move forward in victory for My glory! I AM is going before you! Micah 2:13, “The breaker goes up before them: they break out, pass through the gate, and go out by it. So their king goes out before them, and the LORD at their head.” NASB
Where are you at? Where are you from and where are you going? Are you in a place of stagnation and death when you’re meant to be in a position of movement and overflowing with life? Are you walking away from sin to embrace Me? Do you know? Be aware, My children, of your surroundings – always know where you are. For the enemy is seeking to disorient and lead astray, but those who remain in Me and are consciously aware will be able to avoid the pitfalls and not be easily driven off course. If you are anxious and unsure, come and ask. It is My delight to provide direction and stability to you! I specialize in finding what is lost! Follow the leading of My Spirit in all things, the Guide who will lead you only into truth, and He will reveal all that is necessary for you to thrive even when walking through haze and fog. There is a joy that comes with knowing precisely where you are at and in which direction you are headed, and I rejoice over My children who seek continually to walk towards Me. Gen. 3:8-9, “They heard the voice of ADONAI, God, walking in the garden at the time of the evening breeze, so the man and his wife hid themselves from the presence of ADONAI, God, among the trees in the garden. ADONAI, God, called to the man, ‘Where are you?’” CJB
Many are suffering from physical illnesses that are merely symptoms of a soulish cause. I am going to bring revelation to these areas, and as they are submitted to My care, I am going to bring about a transformation that removes the root and as a consequence physical healing will occur. Do not resist the prompting of My Spirit as this revelation is given, for I desire that you walk in wholeness of spirit, soul, and body. You will no longer be held in bondage but be free to walk in the abundance of life, freedom, and purpose I have for you. 3 John 1:2, “Beloved, I pray that in all respects you may prosper and be in good health, just as your soul prospers.” NASB
The church has been comatose, unconscious, and unaware: asleep. And as the church has slept the fires of hell have been encroaching and doctrines of demons have been embraced. Awake! Awake! It is better to awaken and feel the pain and discomfort of the flames and still escape than to be consumed by them in your sleep! Spiritual fathers and mothers shake your children awake! Even as all things will be shaken by Me, do not be afraid to shake awake those in your care. For I will hold My shepherds accountable if they do not attempt to lead My sheep to safety – if they refuse to speak the truth of My Word instead of the opinions of man. Set trumpets to your mouths for the time is approaching.
Even as My people awaken, I am going to allow them the opportunity to dig trenches around their families and communities through intercession and living out My Word. The awakened church will stand as a barrier, as well as a place of refuge, and many will find relief in My outstretched arms. This will not be an opportunity of long duration; however many whose eyes have been darkened will have scales drop from their eyes, and they will stand boldly alongside My church. Those who have previously denied Me will yet find themselves at My feet, and it will be an extreme upset to the forces of darkness, increasing the heat of its indignation. Do not fear in that time, for this will activate a harvest for My Kingdom.
The cry to awaken has gone forth from heaven, and the call has sounded to ready yourselves for war! Unashamedly pass judgment on the works of darkness that profane My Holy Name. The culmination of time is at hand; My return is imminent! Awake, arise, and go boldly forth as My Warrior Bride! Joel 2:1, “Blow the trumpet in Zion, and sound an alarm on My holy mountain! Let all the inhabitants of the land tremble; for the day of the LORD is coming; for it is at hand.” NASB
My love for you is both whole and holy. There is nothing lacking in it – you can trust Me. When it seems everything around you is falling apart, rest in My love, knowing that there is nothing that can separate you from it. It is multi-faceted, and I always have your best interests in mind. I would rather lay myself down for you knowing that you may never reciprocate My love, than to go without expressing My thoughts toward you. To Me you are altogether lovely, and I have no greater desire than to have you return My love and walk with Me eternally. Rom. 5:8, “But God demonstrates His own love toward us, in that while we were yet sinners, Christ died for us.” NASB
Understand the work of My cross but live in My life. I am no longer dead; I am alive. Only that which is alive can effect transformation. That which is dead cannot bring forth life. When you become dead to sin, bury it and let it lay, no longer allowing it to have a hold on you. If you keep trying to resuscitate the very thing that prevents you from totally abiding in My life, you are choosing to forfeit the abundance of all My Life offers you at that moment; preferring that which is actively bringing death over Me, who is actively living and bringing forth life. I have called you to resurrection life in Me – a life that effects change and speaks creatively into the world. Live in My life continually, knowing that I am the One who was dead, but is alive forevermore. John 15:5-7, “I am the vine, you are the branches. He who abides in Me, and I in him, bears much fruit; for without Me you can do nothing. If anyone does not abide in Me, he is cast out as a branch and is withered; and they gather them and throw them into the fire, and they are burned. If you abide in Me, and My words abide in you, you will ask what you desire, and it shall be done for you.” NKJV
When you look beyond the angry words and arguments, you will find that the real issue is the truth. Some desire truth, others hate it; some are afraid of it, and yet others are angered by it. This is the battle of the end times. Some seek to create their own truth, some deny it altogether, some want it when it is advantageous to them, and then there are those who belong to Me, who embrace truth, refusing to let it go, even amid persecution. My child, you must learn to discern what is behind the verbiage being spewed and pray accordingly, recognizing that the god of this world has darkened the eyes of many to the truth. Do not mistake fear of truth for outright denial of it, making your own judgments. I have called you to bear witness of the truth, not of your own opinions. I’ve given you My Spirit to lead you into all truth that you may be effective in your testimony. Learn when to be silent and when to speak; shun what is evil, embrace what is good; be angry, but do not sin. Walk in humility with love, speak the truth, refusing the lie, and stand firm. For truth will triumph when the illusions are broken and lies are revealed, and when that time comes you don’t want to be ashamed of the witness you bore of Me to the world. I Tim. 2:1-4, “Therefore I exhort first of all that supplications, prayers, intercessions, and giving of thanks be made for all men, for kings and all who are in authority, that we may lead a quiet and peaceable life in all godliness and reverence. For this is good and acceptable in the sight of God our Savior, who desires all men to be saved and to come to the knowledge of the truth.” NKJV
