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.

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.”

Do you believe Me?  Do you know that I have good planned for you?  Do you believe that I Am God?  Why is your soul downcast?  Put your hope in Me.  You will yet praise Me. Open up your heart and believe Me.  You have three choices, three voices speak: My Voice, your own voice and the voice of the enemy.  I speak life to you.  The enemy speaks death to you.  Your voice speaks the agreement you make with either life or death.  Choose life, that you may live and speak LIFE, even when your feelings feel so dead.  The power of your words in agreement with Mine, are more powerful than your feelings.  I speak peace to you today.  In this peace, take a moment to look at your thoughts.  Seek to identify with My life in them.  I am in you and I will help you. Be still and know that I am God.

Psalm 46: (NLT)  God is our refuge and strength, a tested help in times of trouble.  And so we need not fear even if the world blows up and the mountains crumble into the sea.  Let the oceans roar and foam; let the mountains tremble!

Be the first to do good. Do it because you love Me. I desire 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.

You are accepted in Me, My dear one. Not only are you accepted, you were chosen, hand picked to be Mine. I have promised goodness and mercy to you. As I look on you, I see the seal of My Promise. You are married to Me and I will never break My promises. I know you are weak and have been wounded, but I now see you strong and standing and able through My indwelling Spirit. My Power is at work in you and you have become more than a conqueror. I want you to know who you are to Me, because believing Me protects you from trying to live out what others tell you to be, and even what you think you should be. You are so much more than just a survivor!  I will lead you on in triumph and through you diffuse an understanding of My victory. You are clothed with strength and dignity and can laugh at the days to come.~God

1 Peter 2:9 But you are a chosen people, a royal priesthood, a holy nation, God’s special possession, that you may declare the praises of Him who called you out of darkness into His wonderful light.

Psalm 106:5 He brought out His people with rejoicing, His chosen ones with shouts of joy.

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.
