I have often felt your hurt, from disappointments where you have expected things and people fail you.  But I have also seen their desire to love you. The thing that has come between you is your expectations. But I want you to put your hope in Me, and to be able to love regardless. I am teaching you to let your expectations be known and agreed upon, and even then you will often be let down by people. I desire for you to be quick to listen, slow to speak and especially slow to become angry. How can you love your enemies, if you can’t love your friends?  Every person and thing will disappoint you. I have made you in such a way, that only I can satisfy you. Don’t be under obligation, but be under My direction, and love as I have loved you. Trust in Me with all your heart and lean not on what you think should be. Acknowledge Me and I will straighten and direct your path.

Psalm 62:5 For God alone, O my soul, wait in silence, for my hope is from Him.

Romans 13:8 Do not owe anyone anything, except to love one another, for the one who loves another has fulfilled the law.

There is a struggle that I have placed in you. I have also given you the ability to break free through this struggle.  During this process you will question and not understand, because this is a supernatural miracle. I am asking you today to trust Me. I am good towards you. My plans are to give you hope. I am bringing you to life through My Spirit dwelling in you. You are experiencing a transformation so that you may be glorified in My Son. Lean on My Spirit within you for He knows what you need. Know that all things work together for your good.  I will complete this work I have started in you. Don’t be afraid when you can’t see, because nothing can separate you from Me! ~God

Proverbs 3:5,6 Trust in the Lord with all your heart, and do not rely on your own understanding; think about Him in all your ways, and He will guide you on the right paths.

rest boat with verse2

It is for freedom that you are free. I want you to be free to trust Me. I have made provision for you in every way. My grace is sufficient for you. You don’t have to strive to please Me. Striving to please Me has the opposite effect, because in your striving you reveal your unbelief in My Provision. Without faith it is impossible to please Me.  I have told you who you are to Me. Do you value your opinion of you more than Mine? Do you believe that I give you of My Spirit because of what you do? I give you My Spirit when you hear and believe in My Son’s death and resurrection. Today as you hear My voice, do not harden your heart, but enter My rest. Rest from your own works and be still and know Me.  You are My witness whom I have chosen to know and believe that I AM GOD.

Galatians 3:5 So then, does God supply you with the Spirit and work miracles among you by the works of the law or by hearing with faith?

Hebrews  4:9 Therefore, a Sabbath rest remains for God’s people. For the person who has entered His rest has rested from his own works, just as God did from His.

I see you. You hide before Me in clothes of rebellion. You hide before Me, in your many projects, in your work and ministry. You wear these things because you fear no one will see you without them. You have been so disappointed by others who should have loved you, who should have seen you and noticed that you are valuable, that you have given up hope. Instead of grieving your loss, you have run from it to other things. I am asking you to stand still before Me. Allow Me to remove the clothes under which you have hidden. You don’t have to pretend to be anything for Me to see you.  I want to expose your hurting heart so that I can heal it. I know how these things have hurt you. I know why you have done the things you’ve done. But I am here to restore and repair and to show you how to feel again. I am extending resurrection power that will bring life to the deaths you have experienced, and asking you to return to hope. Hope is a powerful force. ~Jesus

John 8:32 You will know the truth and the truth will set you free.

I am your lamp. I shine on your darkness. With Me, you can attack any barrier. I am for you. I am not against you. My plans are to take you beyond barriers and walls, beyond any hinderance. For you are My witness. I have chosen you so that You can know Me. I am pleased that you consider all things loss, compared to Me. I will show Myself strong for you, and reveal surpassing greatness to you. I will show you the power of My resurrection. I Am your God. Be still and know Me.

Be the first to do good. Do it because you love Me. I am willing that you set aside your pride and stubbornness and be the first to extend love and peace and kindness to others. You can begin this by speaking the things you believe for others out of your mouth. Thank Me for those things even before they come to pass. Begin to look for the new growth and will it forward in your faith. Love never fails. Do LOVE not for a return but because you believe in a city to come. Before you realize it, love will change you. You will love loving instead of love lacking. ~Jesus

Proverbs 18:20 From the fruit of his mouth a man’s stomach is satisfied; he is filled with the product of his lips.

Hebrews 13:12-14 Therefore Jesus also suffered outside the gate, so that He might sanctify the people by His own blood. Let us then go to Him outside the camp, bearing His disgrace. For we do not have an enduring city here; instead, we seek the one to come.

I am willing the places in you that have been wounded to come out from hiding. I intend to bring healing power into them. I am asking that you offer them up to me. You can’t contain them and prosper in your life. I know that you didn’t know how to handle the things that happened to you. I know that you have hidden them because it was the only way you knew to survive. But you have walked with Me now for a time and you are stronger in your faith. I am within you to bring life and resurrection. I am coming by you with a mighty wind, that has the power to remove the dead things in your soul. Lift your hands in surrender, for I see your hurts being released and hidden wounds healed.  As they are removed, you have vibrant color in your cheeks and laughter on your lips.~Jesus

3 John 2  Beloved, I wish above all things that thou may prosper and be in health, even as your soul prospers. 

Romans 8:11 But if the Spirit that raised up Jesus from the dead dwell in you, he that raised up Christ from the dead shall also quicken your mortal bodies by His Spirit that dwells in you.
