Turn your eyes from the things of Earth. I have loosed you from the things that have held you captive. But you must walk away from them. You must come out and be separate. You must put down the things that link you to them. You were made for greater things than the elemental things of the world. The world’s desires are limited and lacking and have always tried to hold you. But I have called you to know Me. In knowing Me you are lifted beyond the things of limit and lack. For nothing is impossible for Me, and I am greater in you than he that is in the world. Today, lift your voice and praise Me for the greater things. The things yet to come to you. For I will accomplish more than you can even ask or imagine, according to My power that is at work within you. ~God

Ezekiel 3:12 Then the Spirit took me up and I heard behind me a voice of a great rushing saying “blessed be the glory of the Lord from his place”.

1 Peter 1:21 Through Jesus you believe in God, who raised Him from the dead and glorified Him, and so your faith and hope are in God.

1 Cor 2:9 “No eye has seen, no ear has heard and no one’s heart has imagined all the things that God has prepared for those who love Him”

You are the one who I have gifted. You are the one who knows Me and carries My Spirit. I want you to realize that You are my gift to others. You have much to offer and are entirely valuable to Me. I have thought of You always. You are always on My mind. My eyes are always on you. I know your thoughts even before you think them.  I have watched you look to others to see what they can offer you. To see how they can make you better or more fulfilled. But you won’t find that in anyone, you are way beyond that. You were made for Me and I have given you abundantly of Myself.  I want you to change your perspective about others and begin to look at how you can share what I’ve put in you with them.  I want you to do this as you look to your friends and also My church. They will not fill you. They will never be able to do this because I intended you to come to Me for that.   I want you to surrender the idea of  “doing it your way..” Because I have plans to give you a hope and a future. Be still and know Me. Will you trust Me?

Colossians 2:9 For the entire fullness of God’s nature dwells bodily in Christ,  and you have been filled by Him, who is the head over every ruler and authority.

1 Corinthians 15:58 Therefore, my dear brothers, be steadfast, immovable, always excelling in the Lord’s work, knowing that your labor in the Lord is not in vain.

I dwell within you. I am in the center of your being. This is the place where we are united, I call  it the secret place. I want you to begin to live out of this place. I want you to look around your heart because sometimes your feelings feel through past hurts and mislead you. I don’t want you to dismiss your feelings because I have given them to you to alert you to things, but don’t make judgements based only on your feelings. I want you to look beyond your mind, because My thoughts are higher and many things can not be understood especially when you wear glasses of expectation. Expectations you place on others tend to lead you to disappointment and cause you to sin. I am calling you to look through faith at My glory and begin to do the things you see Me doing. I will meet your needs through this glory and you will no longer need to look at people for what they can do for you. Instead, you will abound in good works, and serve Me by loving others as they are. ~Jesus

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

Ephesians 2:22 And in Him you too are being built together to become a dwelling in which God lives by His Spirit.

1 Corinthians 6:19,20 Do you not know that your bodies are temples of the Holy Spirit, who is in you, whom you have received from God? You are not your own; you were bought at a price. Therefore honor God with your bodies.

The clamor of men is a swirling black smoke covering the nations. I am God, all powerful in My restraint, waiting for the fulfillment of My words. I am above, seated on My throne, but I am also sealed in your heart. This connection is as a white beam of light, revealing you as Mine to the world. This beam is unbroken and cuts through the smoke and clamor. As you unite with others who are mine, this light becomes brighter and begins to take the form of My Bride. I Am the head of the church, your bridegroom. Those who are wise will shine like the brightness of the heavens and those who lead many to righteousness like the stars for ever and ever. Put your hope in Me for My word is certain.

Psalm 33:20-22 My soul waits in hope for the Lord; He is my help and my shield. My heart rejoices in Him, because I trust in His holy name. Let Your unfailing love be upon us, O Lord, even as we put our hope in You.

Psalm 67:1-2 God be gracious to us and bless us, and make His face shine upon us; That Your way be known on the earth, Your salvation among all the nations.

Lean not on your own understanding. In all your ways acknowledge Me and I will direct your paths. Listen only to My voice. You will recognize My voice because of My love. I am kind and gentle and forgiving. I won’t condemn or belittle you. The voices of strangers seek to destroy you. I am teaching you not to listen to the strange voices you hear. I don’t want you to seek strength from deceitful authority, whose purposes are only to further their own agendas and plans. You know what love is because I showed you when I laid down My life for you. I am calling you to look to My love for you and to stop looking to imperfect people. As you come to know My love, I ask you to forgive those who have disappointed you and have misled you. They aren’t even aware sometimes of what they are doing, because they have been hurt as well. I call you to let go of your bitterness and resentment and to love those who hurt you and to do good to those who persecute you. As you do, you will know the perfect love that casts out fear and you will no longer fear, because you are being made perfect in Me.

1 John 4:1 Dear friends, do not believe every spirit, but test the spirits to see whether they are from God, because many false prophets have gone out into the world.

1 John 4 16-19 God is love. Whoever lives in love lives in God, and God in them. This is how love is made complete among us so that we have confidence on the day of judgment: In this world we are like Jesus. There is no fear in love. But perfect love drives out fear, because fear has to do with punishment. The one who fears is not made perfect in love. We love because he first loved us.

Romans 8:37 Nay, in all things, we are more than conquerors through Him that loved us.

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.

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.
