I am restoring the joy of salvation to you and giving you a willing Spirit to sustain you. Your willingness to surrender gives Me an open door into your being, where My Spirit comes to dwell and empower you to live. Cast aside doubts and unbelief. The devil works at deceiving. Reject the devil, because you are of faith. You are a believer of My promises. I am preparing a table before you in the presence of your enemies. As you surrender, and hear me knock, I will come in and dine with you and you with Me.

Psalm 23:5 You prepare a table before me in the presence of my enemies.

Revelation 3:20 Here I am! I stand at the door and knock. If anyone hears my voice and opens the door, I will come in and eat with that person, and they with me.

James 4:7 Submit yourselves, then, to God. Resist the devil, and he will flee from you.

Psalm 62:1 I am at rest in God alone; my salvation comes from Him.

7-29 (1 of 2)

My survivor. My servant whom I have made strong. My broken one made whole.  I see you now, I feel your heart and how easily you are forgetting the intense yearning you had when you had no way. How the pain of your losses and destructions have eased. How you no longer fear starting over again.  You look around you and see the struggles of others and thank Me that you are not like them. You say “I now fast and give my tithe. I am alright.” You have taken care of your religion and feel entitled to my blessings. But I call you now into battle for your heart. I call you to remember My sufficient grace. I call you not to turn away from Me, the Living God, your Savior. I have MORE intended for you than your own comfort and healing. No eye has seen, no mind conceived what I have prepared for those who love Me. Return to Me and ask of Me, for I will guard your heart from the evil one, and even from your own complacency! Moving beyond broken is more than just being mended and made whole. For I have intended great purpose for your brokenness! I am calling you to set your eyes upon Me, your Creator and Sustainer, and get out of the boat and walk upon the water! ~God

Jeremiah 33:3 Call to Me and I will answer you, and show you great and mighty things, which you don’t know.

1 Corinthians 2:12 We have received, not the spirit of the world, but the spirit which is of God, that we might know the things that are freely given to us of God.

Ephesians 2:8,9 For you are saved by grace through faith, and this is not from yourselves, it is God’s gift – not from works, so that no one can boast.

Proverbs 4:23 Guard your heart above all else, for it is the source of life.

rest boat with verse2

I want you to have a period of rest. Sometimes you walk with Me. Sometimes you walk the other way. Sometimes you walk in the right direction, but not with Me. In rest, you will come to realize which way you are walking and be able to correct your course. In rest you realize that I provide your strength. In rest you receive understanding that your god is not the work of your hands. In rest, the things that bind you, and cause you to serve the ways of the world, slip from your wrists. I want you to rest and relinquish and remember. For your strength is not in striving, but in remembering and receiving My Son. He is My provision and power for you! ~God

Deuteronomy 30:20 I am your life and the length of your days.

Proverbs 14:30 A heart at peace gives life to the body…

Isaiah 40:31 Those who wait on the Lord shall renew their strength; they shall mount up with wings like eagles, they shall run and not be weary, they shall walk and not faint.

Hebrews 4 (for we who have believed enter the rest)

Isaiah 30:15 In repentance and rest is your salvation, in quietness and trust is your strength.

9-21 (2 of 2)

The Pharisees are polished and they are proud of it.

They look down on you

for not being what they have worked so hard to attain.

I have been a Pharisee. 

A whitewashed tomb.

2 Corinthians 1:9,10 We had the sentence of death in ourselves, that we should not trust in ourselves  but in God who raises the dead, who delivered us from so great a death, and does deliver us;

in whom we trust that He will still deliver us.

“The spirit of debt in your life is of the Devil. For the debt you owed has been paid. I have given payment freely and called you to receive freely. I ask that you extend this same mercy to others. Anything you feel is owed to you is out of alignment with the truth. For your actions and nature were deserving of death. But I loved you and I willingly paid what you owed My Father. I want you to recognize Me as your Savior and to remember that you did not save yourself in your own strength. I am calling you to turn away from your ideas of entitlement and to begin to turn your eyes to Me the author and perfector of your faith. I want you to live out of the recognition of the grace that has been given to you. Remember the work of God is this: To believe in Me, the One He sent.” ~Jesus

Psalm 130:7 O Israel, hope in the Lord, for with the Lord there is mercy, and with Him is abundant redemption.

Galatians 5:5 We through the Spirit eagerly wait for the hope of righteousness by faith.

Ephesians 4:32 Be kind to one another, tenderhearted, forgiving one another, even as God in Christ has forgiven you.

Galatians 6:14 Far be it from me to boast except in the cross of our Lord Jesus Christ, by which the world has been crucified to me, and I to the world.

I am calling you to get your house in order.  The first thing that needs to be done is setting your affection in the proper place.  I want you, as My Bride, to long only for Me. There is no need to seek affirmation from anyone else because My Spirit bears witness with yours and will affirm that you are Mine.

I feel hunger in your belly. I am aware of your need to be filled.  I have watched you work for food that spoils and does not satisfy. I have watched you labor and seek to be appreciated and noticed only to be cast aside by the pride of others.  There is no one on earth, who will appreciate you enough. There is nothing on earth, which can satisfy you completely.  I will not allow it. You are Mine, and I am jealous for your affection.

I am coming to bring order to My church. I am coming to command righteousness. I will turn your eyes from looking at what is worthless, and I will give you life in My ways. Keep your mind set on things above, for the sun of righteousness will rise with healing in its wings.

Psalm 119:37 Turn my eyes from looking at what is worthless; give me life in your ways.

Colossians 3:1-4 So if you have been raised with the Messiah, seek what is above, where the Messiah is seated at the right hand of God. Set your minds on what is above, not on what is on the earth. For you have died, and your life is hidden with the Messiah in God. When the Messiah, who is your life, is revealed, then you also will be revealed with Him in glory.

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

Psalm 119:18,19 Open my eyes so that I may contemplate wonderful things from Your instruction. I am a stranger on earth; do not hide Your commands from me.

original weeping

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.”

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

Isaiah 55:2 Why spend money on what is not bread, and your labor on what does not satisfy? Listen. Listen to Me and eat what is good, and you will delight in the richest of fare.

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 give you a hope and a future.
