I know that you have a deep hurt inside that you doubt I can heal. You doubt Me, so you hold your hurt and manage it. You have managed it for years.  In your managing, you try to convince yourself that you want less than you really do, so that you won’t be disappointed anymore. As you settle for less, you reach for harmful things to fill the longing you have. Here you are today, weary and fearful, because the hurt you thought you had managed to kill has reappeared, again. I am here. Bring your hurt to Me. I want you to seek Me with all your heart, so bring Me your unbelief as well. I am able to satisfy your soul!  As you forsake your methods and your efforts to get Me to give you what you want, and instead, just trust Me, I will reveal Myself to you and you will see your satisfaction. ~Jesus

Father, I ask you to forgive me. I’ve come so many times asking You to give me things that never satisfy. I ask You to forgive me for grasping in unbelief instead of turning and bowing at Your feet. Help me to believe. Help me to receive. Help me to see You. I open my heart wide today. I do believe; help me overcome my unbelief!

Psalm 81:10 I am the Lord your God, who brought you up out of Egypt. Open wide your mouth and I will fill it.

Psalm 81:16 But you will be fed with the finest of wheat; with honey from the rock I will satisfy you.

Mark 9:24 I do believe; help me overcome my unbelief.

Psalm 34:8 Taste and see that the Lord is good; blessed is the one who takes refuge in Him.

I am teaching you to walk after My Spirit. You have often been controlled by others because you would rather please them than to stand up for your own way.  There are controllers who control you by their behavior, they want you to feel sorry for them. They stay in their pit and try to pull you in with them. There are controllers who have controlled you by their anger and disapproval and condemnation. And there are those who want to be your holy spirit. But I stood for you and have cut the ropes of the controllers in your life. As you are coming up in maturity in Me, you will have to confront some things that are out of place in your life and this will be unpleasant and frightening to you. But I will encourage you and strengthen you to walk in love. You have crossed over from control and death to life and love in My Spirit. Where My Spirit is there is freedom!

Matthew 10:28 May I not fear those who kill the body but cannot kill the soul, but rather, may I fear the One who is able to destroy both soul and body in hell.

Psalm 31:1,3,5 In You, O Lord, I have taken refuge; Let me never be ashamed; Deliver me in Your righteousness. Since You are my rock and my fortress, for your name’s sake lead me and guide me. Into Your hands I commit my spirit; Redeem me, O Lord, God of truth.

Your sheep know Your voice, and You know them and they follow You.

There is a secret place in you. A place beyond your mind and tangled thoughts, a place above your heart and the heavy hurts. It is a place of your spirit where you are united with Me. A place where you can understand that you are a citizen of Heaven and are in the Earth but not of it. As your circumstances crowd around you, take time to believe My promises. Stop dwelling on mistakes and regrets.  Stop trying to escape and know that I have called you to these places for a time, so that you can glorify Me. I will provide the grace you need. You have a pursuing enemy, but I have overcome. And I am greater in you, than your enemies.  I take you from glory to glory and with each place in your life I strengthen your faith and enable you to praise Me. Praising Me is your testimony and you conquer by the blood of the Lamb and by the word of your testimony. ~ God

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

Philippians 3:20 but our citizenship is in heaven, from which we also eagerly wait for a Savior, the Lord Jesus Christ.

2 Corinthians 5:17 Therefore, if anyone is in Christ, he is a new creation; old things have passed away, and look new things have come.

Romans 4:20 He did not waver in unbelief at God’s promise but was strengthened in his faith and gave glory to God.

11-19 (1 of 1)

Even from your childhood, you have been attacked. But you are still standing, still seeking Me. I have not allowed them to prevail against you. They have made deep impressions in your mind, trying to ruin your life. They have hated you because you are Mine. But I have saved you and cut off their hold over you. Turn into Me now, for with Me, are redemption and salvation. In your new freedom, you may be frightened but I want you to calm and quiet yourself and walk beside Me in confidence and trust. ~God

Psalm 129: 1-4  Since my youth they have often attacked me, but they have not prevailed against me. Plowmen have plowed over my back; they made their furrows long. The Lord is righteous; He has cut the ropes of the wicked.

Psalm 131:2 Instead, I have calmed and quieted myself like a little weaned child with its mother.

2 Samuel 22:3-4 You save me from violence. I called to the Lord, who is worthy of praise, and I was saved from my enemies.

Prayer from Stormie Omartian’s book “Lead Me Holy Spirit

Led to Be Separate from the Enemy of Your Soul

Lord, show me anything I need to see so that I can separate myself from all evil. If I have unknowingly aligned myself with the enemy of my soul, help me to “abstain from every form of evil” (Thessalonians 5:22) Make me aware when I am not clearly separated from evil the way you want me to be. If the things I am doing, seeing or saying are supporting the enemy, help me to recognize that and walk away from it. “I will call upon the Lord, who is worthy to be praised: so shall I be saved from my enemies” (Psalm 18:3) Thank You that You will never leave or forsake me but will always deliver me.
