devotion April 18, 2018

I have experienced some very overwhelming emotions this past week. Some so deeply that I have struggled to focus. I was crying out this morning to the Lord and had such a beautiful image of Him. I saw Him standing on what looked like white concrete. I was bowing at His feet and He was praying for me. Then I saw Him hold out His hands, palms up, with His fingers overlapping. His hands had formed a resting place. He looked up into a bright sky and I saw a Dove descending into His outstretched hands. He took the dove and placed it upon my head. Then He took my hand and prompted me to stand. I was aware of the Dove upon my head, but as I stood I saw that it descended from my head into my belly until I could see my belly glowing. I heard the verse “Let the peace of God rule in your heart”. He then led me back to a painting I did years ago for a friend that I wanted to share. The painting is titled “Remember Me”.

remember meColossians 3:15 Let the peace of Christ rule in your hearts, remembering that as members of the same body you are called to live in harmony, and never forget to be thankful for what God has done for you.

I have compassion on you. I see you as a sprout in the edge of the ocean trying to grow up under pounding waves. I have compassion on you. You are mine. I will scoop you up and carry you with me. I plan to plant you in a spacious place, where you can grow and become an Oak of Righteousness to display My splendor. I have compassion on you. I will not leave you nor forsake you. Stand and see the deliverance I am bringing to you and be of good courage, for I am strengthening your heart. Don’t look to others or even to yourself, for I AM your saving strength. Be still and know that I AM God. The process of maturing will happen speedily as you let go of your own efforts and look only to Me. When you hear My voice, don’t harden your heart and resolve to solve your own problems. Don’t say “I think or I know” but rather, in all your ways, acknowledge Me, and I will direct your path.  I have compassion on you.

1 John 4:18 (AMPC)There is no fear in love [dread does not exist], but full-grown (complete, perfect) love turns fear out of doors and expels every trace of terror! For fear brings with it the thought of punishment, and [so] he who is afraid has not reached the full maturity of love [is not yet grown into love’s complete perfection].

I have connected you directly to heaven through My indwelling Spirit. It is as a beam that cuts through the swirling clamor. This allows you to receive the things you need. I am in you, and you are in Me. Today, I want to release contentment to you. As you pray, focus on contentment coming down into your being. Contentment is a state of being where you are satisfied together with Me in our dwelling. It is the happy home you long for in this life. Seek this state of being with Me before you move forward. There is great gain in godliness with contentment. As you seek first My kingdom, other things added will bless you and not take the life out of you. ~Jesus

Luke 8:18 So take care how you listen; for whoever has, to him more shall be given; and whoever does not have, even what he thinks he has shall be taken away from him.

1 Timothy 6:6 But godliness actually is a means of great gain when accompanied by contentment.

Flesh and blood cannot inherit the kingdom of God. Only those who have a union with My Spirit will inherit My kingdom. So many search the scriptures and learn of Me. They are content knowing of Me, but more is required for everlasting life. I stand at the door of hearts and knock. Those who hear Me and invite Me in are the ones who will know everlasting life. You have heard and invited Me in to your house. I have come to dine with you, and you with Me. I want you to seek Life from this place where My spirit and your spirit are united; this place of communion with My indwelling Presence. It is here, dining with Me, that you will find nourishment. I will provide strength and preserve you. It is here, you will find your purpose, because united here, we break the bread and give it to feed My family.

John 6:57 Just as the living Father sent Me and I live because of the Father, so the one who feeds on Me will live because of Me.

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 that person and they with Me.

love never fails 2

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.

Everything you have lost has been taken into account. I am your Redeemer. I hold your tears close to My heart. There is power in your tears. They will turn to fat, golden raindrops and will nourish your future. Your tears are to you as a woman’s water breaking before her delivery. Your time of delivery has come and I am calling you to begin to push. You have suffered but you will see satisfaction. From your pain and sacrifice you will help others. You will see your future and will forget the anguish of your labor. For I suffered and sacrificed to make you righteous. I have ransomed you. I have redeemed you. And because of My blood, I am restoring and repaying what was lost to you. Your redeemer lives! And be sure that all things work for good for you, because you are called to My purposes.

Isaiah 53:11 He shall see of the travail of His soul, and shall be satisfied: by His knowledge shall my righteous servant justify many; for He shall bear their iniquities.

John 16:21 When a woman is in labor she has pain because her time has come. But when she has given birth to a child, she no longer remembers the suffering because of the joy that a person has been born into the world.

Psalm 56:8 You Yourself have recorded my wanderings. Put my tears in Your bottle. Are they not in Your records?

Isaiah 41:13 For I, Yahweh your God, hold your hand and say to you: “Do not fear, I will help you.”

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?”

1 John 3:16 This is how we know what love is: Jesus Christ laid down His life for us. And we ought to lay down our lives for our brothers and sisters.
