Watch if you become weary, that you don’t isolate yourself from My Body. I’ve created you to belong and you are a necessary part of My church.  I know that you have felt rejected and  like you are not needed. But I have placed you and I have purpose for you. My purpose may not be understood or confirmed by others. But you are My Beloved and are of those who walk by faith and not by sight. You have been brought into My Family for My purposes to be accomplished through you. The weaknesses of others will strengthen your weaknesses. Lean into Me and not on your own understanding and trust that I am directing your path. I will continue the good work I have begun in you, until its completion. ~God

Ephesians 4:15-16 But speaking the truth in love, let us grow in every way into Him who is the head-Christ. From Him the whole body, fitted and knit together by every supporting ligament, promotes the growth of the body for building up itself in love by the proper working of each individual part.

Speak life to your future. The devil speaks death and discouragement and tries to steal your future for his purposes. He uses deception and deceit to produce confusion. You have the breath of life within you, because My Spirit has joined with your spirit. Use this breath to speak My word to your own ears and hear what the Spirit says to His church. As you begin to recognize the messages you have believed of death and discouragement, disease and disaster I want you to call back life, encouragement, health and the promised future I have planned for you. When the thief is caught he is required to pay back double what he has taken. I have told you that you are blessed and to be fruitful and multiply and I watch over My word to see that it comes to pass. ~God

Genesis 1:28 God blessed them and said “be fruitful, multiply and fill the earth and subdue it. Rule the fish of the sea, the birds of the sky, and every creature that crawls on the earth”.

Exodus 22:7 If anyone gives a neighbor silver or goods for safekeeping and they are stolen from the neighbor’s house, the thief, if caught, must pay back double.

Jeremiah 29:11 “For I know the plans I have for you,” declares the Lord, “plans to prosper you and not to harm you, plans to five you hope and a future.”

You question My goodness amid your struggles and you rage against the fact that I ask you to praise Me. You look at your life and see shambles and broken down walls and scream ‘if God is so good, why?’ But, the good life, of earth, is a lie. You struggle to build something that is not important to Me. For I am in the broken! I am in your touch to another broken one. I am in your comfort to one crying out. You don’t have to do anything, just by being near, and being filled with My Spirit, I can minister through you. I want you to long for more than the “good life”. And to learn to trust Me with a life that you can’t control. I call you to live beyond broken, with your eyes and heart set toward a new life with Me. For unless I build your house, you labor in vain. I have greater things planned for you. I am enlarging your vision to see beyond this life and your struggles here, to view the mansion I am preparing for you in Heaven. Blessed are the poor in spirit, for theirs is the kingdom of God. ~ Jesus

John 12:29 Anyone who loves their life will lose it, while anyone who hates their life in this world will keep it for eternal life.

Come daily and surrender. Leave the worries of your heart at the doorstep and come inside in prayer with Me. I work everything out to its proper end. Watch that you don’t become conceited thinking that you know everything and are always right. My ways are higher and I see the end from its beginning. Don’t walk out of your flesh in fear by trying to control everything so that it won’t hurt you. As long as you are fearful you are available for hurt. When your fears are cast out by My perfect love you will know peace. For I will replace your fearfulness with My faithfulness. I will enable you to move beyond your hurts and love one another. Surrender and allow Me to control everything for nothing can harm you as long as you are in My care. ~ God

Galatians 5:6 What matters is faith working through love.

Today is a day of new beginnings! A restart. I am doing a new thing. I am providing a way out of confusion and turmoil. I am bringing you to spring of Living Water. I am supernatural. My ways are mysterious, but you can be sure of My faithfulness to you. I am asking you today to step out of confusion and worry and the turning over and over in your mind and to step into My Mystery. I am giving you peace here today. It may feel foreign to you, as you are more familiar with worry. You will find Me and come to understand that I offer rest for your soul. Step away from worry and into My arms. You can’t save people. I am the only Savior. You are only required to love.-God

John 7:38 “The one who believes in Me, as the Scripture has said, will have streams of living water flow from deep within him.”

I am calling you to come to Me. Come away with Me. Lay down your strategies and lay down your fears. I have accepted you. I want you to be with Me, to come and rest in the secret place of My strong hand. You are unable to secure yourself and your methods bring harm to you and to those around you. But I have provided a shelter in My Son. He is a strong tower around you because He has fought and won your battles. I know you are afraid and feel forsaken by those you thought were strong. But I have allowed these things so that you will learn to depend only on Me. So that you will come to the only One who can truly love you. Once you know true love, you will be able to give it back. To give it back freely, just as you received it. There is strength in the knowing of My Love. I will cover you with My feathers and under My wings you will find refuge. In knowing My Love you can find the courage to face the things that need changing in you. I am calling you to come to Me, just as you are! I am calling you to ask Me to be your strength, to be your wisdom, to be the One who is always for you. Because I am.~God

Romans 5:1 Therefore being justified by faith, we have peace with God through our Lord Jesus Christ.

Isaiah 26:12 Lord thou will ordain peace for us: for thou also hast wrought all our works in us.

There is life and glory after the death of a thing in your life. When you give up things that mean so much to you, things that have taken My place, you will grieve. Because setting aside falsehood feels like death. But I have called you to take up your cross and follow Me. I promise you life after death.  After you have surrendered and mourned your loss you will begin to experience My power at work bringing forth newness and hope. I want you to set aside your mistrust of Me and believe Me. The things you can hold in your hands are lies that will harm you. They can’t satisfy you. Only I can satisfy you, for you were made for Me. I don’t have plans to harm you. I have plans to give you a hope and a future.  ~Jesus

John 14:6 Jesus answered, “I am the way, the truth and the life.”
