I saw one in my spirit who was searching for the Presence of the Lord; seeking His Face and His kingdom. She was pacing, walking back and forth in frustration, trying to find a way to enter. The Bible says we are seated with Him in the Heavenlies and that Jesus has presented us through His blood, holy and blameless before His Father, and she believed that to be true. She settled her spirit and began to wait. Small yellow balls began to form before her as she waited. They made what appeared to be steps. She walked upon them all the way up to the Heavenlies. Where Jesus stood to greet her. He reached down and picked up one of the yellow balls. He held it in His hand before her and said: “Now, faith is the substance of things hoped for, the evidence of things not seen.” As He said the last word the balls vanished and she stood suspended before Him.  He then said to her, “Faith is for now.”

I have for you freedom. I see you in clothes of light, barefoot on a grassy knoll, with your hair flying wildly behind you. You will come to know that it is no longer you who live, but that I live in you. I have for you to be delivered. I have for you to know that the life you live in the body, that you live it by faith in Me, for I gave Myself for you. There is a great power within your tears, for as they are shed, I will cause them to cleanse your affections from the clingy cares of the world. I have asked you to set your mind on things above not on things of the earth. I know how difficult this is in your strength, but greater am I in you, than he who is in the world. I desire for you to sit before Me with your palms held up in willingness. I will take care of the rest. ~Jesus

Matthew 11:28 “Come to me, all you who are weary and burdened, and I will give you rest.

As you move on, toward the upward call, I want you to be mindful of pressing through when you begin to feel the burn in your faith muscles. So many times you look for an escape, something to distract you from the burn, but the burn is necessary for you to grow. When you press through, you realize that it no longer hurts and you become strong and able to advance to the next level of glory. I have you on the path of life where there is fullness of joy. I am your escape. I am your ability to continue. Set your mind on the things above. Make it your goal to know Me and the power of My resurrection. Seek My glory; for I will supply all of your needs out of My riches in glory in Christ Jesus. The pain is passing and only lasts for a moment, but My Glory is forever. ~God

Philippians 3:10-11 My goal is to know Him and the power of His resurrection and the fellowship of His sufferings, being conformed to His death, assuming that I will somehow reach the resurrection from among the dead.

Philippians 4:19 And my God will supply all of your needs according to His riches in glory in Christ Jesus.

I bring you to the place at the end of yourself. The place where you don’t know what to do. I bring you here and ask you to wait for a time. You remind Me of My caterpillars squirming before I wrap them in their silks. I feel your desire to flee and your overwhelming desire to JUST DO something, but I am asking you to be still. I want you to understand that you do not have the power to do what needs doing. You can’t change these circumstances. I have called you to be still. Being still requires great faith. I ask you, here in your stillness, “have you placed your hope in Me?” Hope in Me is beyond what you can do and know and see. As you are waiting here there are things I have to teach you. One thing for you to learn- is that nothing in all creation can separate you from My love. Another thing- is that in your union with My Son, you will rise above all circumstances. Nothing can keep you down because there is no greater power than Jesus. In your waiting, you, just like My caterpillars, are being transformed. Do you believe Me for things greater than you can hear or see or that your mind can conceive? These greater things, are the things I have for you! God

Romans 8:10,11 But if Christ is in you, then even though your body is subject to death because of sin, the Spirit gives life because of righteousness. And if the Spirit of Him who raised Jesus from the dead is living in you, He who raised Christ from the dead will also give life to your mortal bodies because of His Spirit who lives in you.

Romans 8:18 I consider that our present sufferings are not worth comparing with the glory that will be revealed in us.

Romans 8:24 For in this hope we were saved. But hope that is seen is no hope at all. Who hopes for what they already have?

Romans 8:37-38 No, in all these things we are more than conquerors through Him who loved us. For I am convinced that neither death nor life, neither angels nor demons, neither the present nor the future, nor any powers, neither height nor depth, nor anything else in all creation, will be able to separate us from the love of God that is in Christ Jesus our Lord!

2 Cor 3:18 And we all, who with unveiled faces contemplate the Lord’s glory, are being transformed into His image with ever increasing glory, which comes from the Lord, who is the Spirit.

2 Cor 3:17 Now the Lord is the Spirit, and where the Spirit of the Lord is, there is freedom.

Everything you have lost has been taken into account. I am your Redeemer. I hold your tears close to My heart. There is power in your tears. They will turn to fat, golden raindrops and will nourish your future. Your tears are to you as a woman’s water breaking before her delivery. Your time of delivery has come and I am calling you to begin to push. You have suffered but you will see satisfaction. From your pain and sacrifice you will help others. You will see your future and will forget the anguish of your labor. For I suffered and sacrificed to make you righteous. I have ransomed you. I have redeemed you. And because of My blood, I am restoring and repaying what was lost to you. Your redeemer lives! And be sure that all things work for good for you, because you are called to My purposes.

Isaiah 53:11 He shall see of the travail of His soul, and shall be satisfied: by His knowledge shall my righteous servant justify many; for He shall bear their iniquities.

John 16:21 When a woman is in labor she has pain because her time has come. But when she has given birth to a child, she no longer remembers the suffering because of the joy that a person has been born into the world.

Psalm 56:8 You Yourself have recorded my wanderings. Put my tears in Your bottle. Are they not in Your records?

Isaiah 41:13 For I, Yahweh your God, hold your hand and say to you: “Do not fear, I will help you.”

half light (1 of 1)-2

I will bring you through and you will praise My name. I will not leave you in darkness. My Spirit is oil for the light of My word. Take time to soak in My Spirit- for you are a burning wick. As you spend time in My Presence, your being becomes saturated with the Oil of My Spirit and are able to behold My Glory. I want you to be with Me. You are a testimony of My eternal faithfulness, a light in the darkness. I want you to pull your affections away from the things on earth and seek Me above all else. Set your mind on things above. The earth shall pass and the wars will cease. My enemies will be thrown into the lake of fire. But I have a glorious reception for My chosen ones.

wick- noun 1. a strip of porous material up which liquid fuel is drawn by capillary action to the flame in a candle, lamp or lighter.

wick- verb 1. absorb or draw off by capillary action.

Isaiah 51:9 Wake up, Wake up! Put on the strength of the Lord’s power.

Isaiah 52: 12 I -I am the One who comforts you. Who are you that you should fear man who dies, or a son of man who is given up for grass?

Revelation 12:11 They conquered him by the blood of the Lamb and by the word of their testimony, for they did not love their lives in the face of death.

Philippians 3:14        I pursue as my goal the prize promised by God’s heavenly call in Christ Jesus.

              I see some running through circumstances and hurdles. They have the end in sight and they put all their effort into completing their goals. But when they reach those goals and navigate through their circumstances and over the hurdles, their world turns over and the race begins again. It is the same race with different circumstances and hurdles. But some of My children have learned that they will not reach the end on Earth’s side. They have their eyes set on the things above and are learning to pace themselves to run the race with perseverance. Instead of competing to earn earth’s rewards, they understand they are not of this world. They have developed a strategy of spending time with Me. Living for Me is their goal. They have learned to come and take the living water from Me, to sit in My Presence and allow Me to love them. I supply all of there needs as they seek first My Kingdom.  I set before you this choice again today. Choose life that you may live.

Philippians 3:7 But everything that was gain to me, I have considered loss because of Christ. More than that, I also consider everything to be a loss in view of the surpassing value of knowing Christ Jesus, my Lord. 

Philippians 4:6 Don’t worry about anything, but in everything, through prayer and petition with thanksgiving, let your requests be made known to God. And the peace of God which surpasses every thought, will guard your hearts and minds in Christ Jesus.

flowers (1 of 2)

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.

I am restoring to you the years the locusts have eaten. 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.”

Prayer: I bind and cast out all spirits of perfection, pride, vanity, ego, intolerance, frustration and impatience in the Name of Jesus “Prayers that Rout Demons” by John Eckhardt

I see a part of you that holds back from Me; a part that you feel doesn’t measure up. You feel that you have to make yourself good, before I will accept you. This is a lie from the enemy. There is no condemnation in Me. I know you feel embarrassed by your lack of love and the bitterness and resentment that have entered your heart. Because you know better. But you don’t have the strength within yourself to make your heart right. If you say you don’t have sin, you make Me a liar, but if you come to Me with your sin and confess it, I will forgive you and cleanse you.  I delight when you come to Me with your weaknesses and admit your need of Me. I am strong for you. I am your advocate. I love you in your struggle and I see you in it, but I also see you free and what you will be. Keep your eyes on Me.~Jesus

Romans 9:16 So then, it does not depend on human will or effort but on God who shows mercy.
