It is for freedom that I have set you free. I have called you to follow and see what I have planned for you. I have made promises to you, but you must walk forward and believe to receive. I told Abram to leave his father’s house and go to the promise. To leave the idol’s and to walk by faith. Leaving or letting go is a sign to Me that you believe what I have promised you.I told Abram to look up to the stars. Abram believed Me and it was credited to Him as righteousness. As for you, you must look up as well, to what is above you. As long as you hold on to what your hand can hold or your eyes can see, you are not walking by faith. I am your comfort and I am your strength. I am your satisfaction. I am calling you to set aside the things that hinder you and to run the race set before you. Run to the promises that I have made you. Do you believe what I have told you, or do you trust in what you hold in your hand? I have asked you to walk by faith, not by sight. ~God

Hebrew 12 Therefore, since we also have such a large cloud of witnesses surrounding us, let us lay aside every weight and the sin that so easily ensnares us. Let us run with endurance the race that lies before us, keeping our eyes on Jesus, the source and perfecter of our faith, who for the joy that lay before Him endured a cross and despised the shame and has sat down at the right hand of God’s throne.

Rest, My weary warrior, for I stand on your behalf. I have fought and I have won. Look upon Me, coming from battle victorious. See the scars on My hands and the blood on my brow. I don’t call you to war the same way I have fought, but I call you to be still and know that I am God. The battle is not yours. The work I have for you to do is to believe in Me. I want you to know that it isn’t from your hand that My kingdom comes. You are human and I am supernatural. I will not give My glory to another. But I want you to see what I do on your behalf. When you know that it isn’t you and humbly ask for My provision, then you will see My miracles. As long as you strive in your own strength, I will resist you, but when you realize that you can’t do it then I give you My grace. My grace is sufficient. I am planting you to display My splendor. I will not in any way fail you, nor give you up, nor leave you without support. ~Jesus

1 Cor 1:30-31 It is because of Him that you are in Christ Jesus, who has become for us wisdom from God-that is, our righteousness, holiness and redemption. Therefore, as it is written ‘Let the one who boasts boast in the Lord.’

While you are looking for safe and secure and familiar there is a country waiting to be explored. I have an exciting future for you! I am looking for warrior spirits who will say “Give me life! Give me life abundantly!” Those who will follow Me with all their heart mind and strength! Who won’t settle for anything less than My ways for their lives. Those who will believe Me for the Promised Land and be willing to leave their comforts and their own desires to find true life; to suffer awhile in order to attain a resurrected life! I want those courageous enough to walk through a wilderness and face their fears, to a Promised City whose foundations are gold. I am asking of you today to forget the former things and not dwell on the past, for I am doing a new thing. As long as you are dwelling on the past, you will remain there. The one who loves his life, loses it, but the one who hates his life in this world will keep it for life eternal. Be strong and very courageous and I will strengthen your heart.

I am about to shoot you into newness. I have been preparing you through the things you have experienced and come through. I see you in a cannon! A human cannonball with a dramatic flaming cape, catapulted into your future. You are wearing My joy and the flames of My love. Let your faith arise now, and believe Me for the greater things. I am not pleased by one who shrinks back and settles.  You know I have plans for you for good, not to harm you. The enemy will shoot his arrows, but they will not penetrate your shield of faith. I have prayed for you. I am releasing over you now a courage greater than you have yet known. You will not fail. Set your heart now as flint to do my will and know that you will not be ashamed.

Isaiah 50:7 For the Lord God will help me; therefore shall I not be confounded: therefore have I set my face like a flint, and I know that I shall not be ashamed.

I am restoring to you the years the locusts have eaten. I have purchased and redeemed them through the blood I shed on the cross. Open your mouth wide and receive the revelation. It is My pleasure to give you the kingdom. I am preparing you to become a catalyst who will deliver a unique remedy. You will be as a barrier breaker, one who crushes through walls and stands boldly before Me in intersession. You are a branch of peace, offering healing. Your witness of Me will be as a billboard drawing in others to come and receive, to be carried along, in MY Current of Joy.

Luke 12:32 “Fear not, little flock. For it is your Father’s good pleasure to give you the Kingdom.”

I have given you keys to unlock a door of hope in your valley. All creation cries out for you to come through, to be birthed, to be brought back to life. My faithful banner over you is love. I am sending a high tide of My grace, so that you may come through completely. You better believe that the deceitfulness of sin can carry you away from the things I have planned for you, but I have called you to carry the Sword and to cut through completely your connection to the world. I am going to kindle a fire in you, that will convince you to turn all of your affections to Me. My grace is sufficient. My grace is sufficient. My grace is sufficient.

2 Corinthians 12:9 But He said to me, “My grace is sufficient for you, for power is perfected in weakness.” Therefore, I will most gladly boast all the more about my weaknesses, so that Christ’s power may reside in me.

You don’t need to forge ahead frantic and furious. Your future and My vision for your life will not come about through the sheer force of your effort. It is not by might or by power but by My Spirit. My Spirit operates through faith. I don’t want you captured by your calling; like a woman who turns all of her affection on her children and forsakes her husband. I am the One who longs for your affection. As you are nourished by your communion with Me, your calling will be fulfilled. Come with Me and rest. In resting you reveal your faith in Me. There is great power at work in those who believe and lean into Me.~ Jesus

Ephesians 1:19 and what is the immeasurable greatness of His power to us who believe, according to the working of His vast strength.

Song of Solomon 8:5 Who is this that comes up from the wilderness leaning on the one she loves?
