I am your Father who has given you gifts and a calling. I have a desire to see you walking in them.  It is My joy to bring you up into maturity. You are delightful to Me. Your spirit is strong and wise, but there are some places in your soul where you are still a child. These places were places taken early by sin and abuse, they have been locked away and unable to learn and grow. I have redeemed you, all of you. I have been bringing you through training and teaching your childish places to learn to behave. I am calling them up so that you can contain a fuller measure of My Spirit within you. Don’t despise My discipline, for I discipline the one I love, the one I delight in.~God

Hebrews 12:6 for the Lord disciplines the one He loves and punishes every son He receives.

Proverbs 13:18 Poverty and disgrace come to those who ignore discipline, but the one who accepts correction will be honored.

I have created you to have purpose and to know who you are to Me. But so often you look to others or to your performance to tell you who you are. There is danger in this. You have an idea of what you want to be, and you begin to act in a way that will cause people to respond in approval, yet you are becoming untrue to Me. People and things have become idols in your life, and you are serving for their reactions instead of believing what I have said about you. I am asking you to come away from those things and admit that they can’t give you what you are looking for. After your confession, I want you to ask Me who you are to Me and be still long enough for Me to instruct you in the way you should go. For you are MY workmanship, created in Me to do good works that have already been prepared for you.

~God

Colossians 3:10 and having put on the new self. You are being renewed in knowledge according to the image of your Creator.

Ecclesiastes 4:4 Then I saw that all toil and all skill in work come from a man’s envy of his neighbor. This also is vanity and a striving after wind.

Isaiah 45:18 For this is what the Lord says- God is the Creator of the heavens. He formed the earth and made it. He established it; He did not create it to be empty, but formed it to be inhabited- “I am Yahweh, and there is no other.”

I will bring sight to your blind eyes. I will enable you to see with My Spirit instead of your dying flesh. I am opening your understanding of My love for you and My love for those around you. You are dead to sin, but alive through Me to our Father. You have sought fulfillment and life, but I am calling you to recognize the futility of feeding your dead flesh and to believe in resurrection so that My kingdom comes through you. I ask that you surrender to Me your expectations and rely on My desires for you. I am cultivating in you the compassion that was in Me when I gave My life for others. I desire for you to give daily to others as well. As your mind aligns with My Spirit, this will become a joy for you. I ask for you to let go of your old life and its deceitful desires and to walk after Me. ~ Jesus

Matthew 16:24-26 Then Jesus told His disciples, “If anyone would come after me, let him deny himself and take up his cross and follow me. For whoever would save his life will lose it, but whoever loses his life for My sake will find it. For what will it profit a man if he gains the whole world and forfeits his soul? Or what shall a man give in return for his soul?”

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.

O beautiful broken one. I hold you and gaze at the glow of My glory that I see emanating from the seed of hope within you. This treasure within you is to be seen. My will for you is Broken Free. Be still and know. You work so diligently to redo the things I have undone in you. You restore and repair and rebuild, so that you may remain whole and unbroken but this is not yet My Way. My Way is Broken Free. Don’t despise your brokenness. I want you to begin to see the beauty of it instead and to know that in brokenness the seed of hope within you has room to grow.

2 Corinthians 4:6,7 For God, who said, “Let light shine out of darkness,” has shone in our hearts to give the light of the knowledge of God’s glory in the face of Jesus Christ. Now we have this treasure in clay jars, so that this extraordinary power may be from God and not us.

1 Corinthians 15:13 (ceb) It’s necessary for this rotting body to be clothed with what can’t decay, and for the body that is dying to be clothed in what can’t die.

2 Corinthians 4:16 Therefore we do not give up. Even though our outer person is being destroyed, our inner person is being renewed day by day.
