Examine your own walk with Me.  Know both where you should have and shouldn’t have been.  Understand where you are now and plan for growth.  Growth is deliberate and intentional.  As you enter a new season, plan to expand in your knowledge of Me, understanding My ways and person.  Be purposeful in your pursuit of and trust in Me.  Be decisive in the actions you take to move forward into your destiny as My Spirit directs you. Your roots run deep; it’s time for expansion.  2 Cor. 13:5, “Examine yourselves to see whether you are living the life of trust.  Test yourselves.  Don’t you realize that Jesus the Messiah is in you?” 2 Pt. 3:17-18, “Beloved, since you already know these things, be on your guard not to be carried away by the error of the lawless and fall from your secure standing.  But grow in the grace and knowledge of our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ.  To Him be the glory both now and to the day of eternity.  Amen.”

Everything I use for My purpose.  It is the character and nature of My love, otherwise, the enemy’s plans for evil, wouldn’t bring forth future, but only death. The difficult brings forth strength, death brings forth life, the hard can be used to soften.  Let the same be said of you.  As My child, My love flows through you.  Choose to allow the bad to bring forth good, if only in you.  Choose to grow instead of stagnating, choose to hope instead of permitting despair, and allow love to reign supreme as you choose to forgive rather than giving bitterness root.  As you do, watch and see, for My Spirit will move in this situation too, and what He does will be beyond your comprehension.  Rom. 8:27-28, “He who searches our hearts knows the mind of the Spirit, because the Spirit intercedes for the saints according to the will of God.  And we know that God works all things together for the good of those who love Him, who are called according to His purpose.”

‘Immanu El, God is with us.  Yes, I AM with you!  I AM for you, and not against you.  I AM with you at all times and during all seasons.  I AM with you in the midst of life’s trials and triumphs, I AM with you when you lie down and rise up.  Do not relegate My presence to an occasional seasonal glimpse, but rather awaken with a song in your heart knowing that I AM with youDon’t look around and question where I am, but stand with quiet resolve, knowing that God – the Creator and Sustainer of all that is, was, or ever will be – is with you, even to the end of the age.  Matt. 28:20b, “And lo, I am with you alway, even unto the end of the world.  Amen.”

Now is the time of your healing.  Now is the time that I will restore all that the enemy has taken from you.  I will cause to be returned unto you a surplus and you will move into a new arena of ministry that you have not even thought possible.  Your destiny has been held in My hands, suspended for such a time as this.  I am arising on your behalf even now and will show you the way in which you should go, providing and restoring as you go.  It will be a time of rest because you will have learned to let go and trust, following what I am doing in and through you, and I will be glorified through you.  Mal. 3:20, “But to you who fear My name, the sun of righteousness will rise with healing in its wings; and you will break out leaping, like calves released from the stall.”  Joel 3:25-26, “I will restore to you the years that the locusts ate, the grasshoppers, shearer-worms and cutter-worms, My great army that I sent against you.  You will eat until you are satisfied and will praise the Name of ADONAI your God, who has done with you such wonders.  Then My people will never again be shamed.” I Thes. 1:11-12, “With this in mind, we constantly pray for you, that our God may make you worthy of His calling, and that by His power He may bring to fruition your every desire for goodness and your every deed prompted by faith.  We pray this so that the name of our Lord Jesus may be glorified in you, and you in Him, according to the grace of our God and the Lord Jesus Christ.”

Love brought Me to Earth, love paved the way to the cross, love prompts Me to prepare a place for you, and love that will cause My return.  My love does all for you – My passion, My Bride.  And just as I love, I have called you to love.  My love sends you, but it must love that motivates your continual sacrifice and service, not duty or habit.  As we become One, the dominating characteristic of your life will be your love for others.  Love makes difficult decisions and endures the impossible.  If you would be a hope-bearer, faith-fertilizer, and bridge-builder in your home and your community, pray that My love would be realized in you.  John 17:23, “I united with them and You with Me, so that they may be completely one, and the world thus will realize that you sent Me, and that You have loved them just as You have loved Me.” I Cor. 13:13-14:1a, “But for now, three things last – faith, hope, love; and the greatest of these is love.  Pursue love!”

The path l am leading you on seems to be taking you through a place where My steps are untraceable, but the road is clear.  I am guiding you to a place you have never been.  You must choose to trust the direction I am leading you, even if it’s through fire.  Asking “why” will not get you to the destination I intend for you, trusting obedience will.  In due time everything will be made clear, but I ask you to be willing to trust Me even when you don’t understand, and rely on My presence going before you through it all.   Ps. 77:19, “Your way went through the sea, Your paths through the turbulent waters, but Your footsteps could not be traced.”  Deut. 31:8, “But ADONAI – it is He who will go ahead of you.  He will be with you.  He will neither fail you nor abandon you, so don’t be afraid or downhearted.”

Let praise precede the proclamations that you make, for I have given you, My children, the ability to uproot and tear down – to war with precision against principalities and powers.  Praise brings you into My courts, where cases are heard and judgments are made in your favor as My child.  Don’t come into My presence defeated, for I have granted you everything you need to walk boldly into My presence, as I have already given you all that pertains to life and godliness.  Praise in the midst of your warfare, for I have already given you the victory.  Ps. 149:6, “Let the high praises of God be in their throats, but a two-edged sword in their hands to carry out vengeance.”  2 Chron. 20:21-22, “He appointed those who would sing to ADONAI and praise the splendor of His holiness as they went out ahead of the army, saying, ‘Give thanks to ADONAI, for His grace continues forever.’ Then, during the time when they were singing and praises, ADONDAI brought a surprise attack against the people…who had come to fight Judah; and they were defeated.”

It is time to again believe in suddenlies. Immediately I was moved with compassion, and immediately provision was made and healing manifest.  It is time again for your prayers to become immediate realities.  You must seek Me, as others did, with an expectation that your time is now, and that I desire to meet you where you are and grant your request.  Let the destructive power of My deliverance demolish what the enemy has attempted to do in your life by making you feel unworthy to obtain your answer.  Receive what I have for you in this immediate moment and follow Me, knowing more suddenlies are on their way.  Mark 10:52, “Jesus said to him, ‘Go! Your trust has healed you.’  Instantly he received his sight and followed Him on the road.”

Understand what My Word & My Spirit are meant to do in your life.  Just as My Spirit hovered over the deep and dark places of the earth prior to creation, so He hovers over the dark voids in your own life.  My Word speaks light into your emptiness and creates a living, breathing being for My glory – you.  Just as My Word separated light from darkness, so it will cause you to choose between walking according to My Spirit or according to your flesh.  It is these two working in conjunction that bring forth life, and that more abundantly.  Let them be your constant companions, revealing My heart to yours, and causing you to become all that I’ve destined and written for you in the heavens, says the Lord.  Gen. 1:1, “In the beginning God created the heavens and the earth.  The earth was unformed and void, darkness was on the face of the deep, and the Spirit of God hovered over the surface of the water.  Then God said, ‘Let there be light,’; and there was light.”  Heb. 4: 12, “See, the Word of God is alive!  It is at work and is sharper than any double-edged sword – it cuts right through to where soul meets spirit and joints meet marrow, and it is quick to judge the inner reflections and attitudes of the heart.”

Pray – without ceasing.  Prayer pursues the Person of the promise.  It releases purpose into those who will do so, and engages body, soul, and spirit.   It has a transformative power for those who engage in it and those who are the object of it. It has revelatory power to grant insight into your own life, and the situations and people for whom you pray.  It enables you to step boldly into your place spiritually and affect change for the Kingdom of God.  Praying without ceasing is simply practicing My presence consistently and conversing constantly with My Holy Spirit, allowing Him the opportunity to answer and show you great and mighty things that you have not known.  Prayer unlocks the mysteries of the Kingdom, establishes My Word in the heavenlies, and causes answers to manifest in the earth.  Yes, prayer changes things, but first and foremost it changes you, enabling you to be all that I’ve called and destined you to be from the foundations of the earth.  Jer. 33:2-3, “Thus says the LORD who made the earth, the LORD who formed it to establish it, the LORD is His name.  Call to Me and I will answer you, and I will tell you great and mighty things, which you do not know.”
