I am your lamp. I shine on your darkness. With Me, you can attack any barrier. I am for you. I am not against you. My plans are to take you beyond barriers and walls, beyond any hinderance. For you are My witness. I have chosen you so that You can know Me. I am pleased that you consider all things loss, compared to Me. I will show Myself strong for you, and reveal surpassing greatness to you. I will show you the power of My resurrection. I Am your God. Be still and know Me.

Philippians 3

2 Samuel 22

6-5-13 (6 of 7)

As you have confessed, I have taken your sins into My body. It is as if you have placed them in a whirlpool and they have flushed down and out of your life as the water swirled. But in this exchange you have received more than you have understood.  You have received My righteousness, not only forgiveness for your sins, but I have imparted to you My standing with the Father.  The Water that flushed you clean, I have also given you to drink. In this I am committing to you the WORD of reconciliation and an understanding in your heart, that old things have passed away. You will now behold that new things have come. Not just in your mind and imagination, but in your belly and reality. I am opening your eyes to see My love and to feel My love for you and you will begin to live now, compelled by this love that I reveal to you. ~Jesus

2 Corinthians 5: 14-15 For the love of Christ controls us, having concluded this, that one died for all, therefore all died;  and He died for all, so that they who live might no longer live for themselves, but for Him who died and rose again on their behalf.

2 Corinthians 5: 17-19Therefore if anyone is in Christ, he is a new creature; the old things passed away; behold, new things have come.  Now all these things are from God, who reconciled us to Himself through Christ and gave us the ministry of reconciliation, namely, that God was in Christ reconciling the world to Himself, not counting their trespasses against them, and He has committed to us the word of reconciliation.

2 Corinthians 5:21 He made Him who knew no sin to be sin on our behalf, so that we might become the righteousness of God in Him.

rest boat with verse2

I set before you life today. I have given you the right and ability to choose. You have chosen many things thinking they are life. Your choices have been characters you have worn as if you were in a play. The first character, the one where you recognized that you are a sinner in need of My mercy, was your true face. But you admired other characters that seemed to have it together. So you put on the clothes of becoming Christ-like and began a search for new studies and new ways to praise Me. I saw you lifting your hands and waving them to get My attention. I was beside you wanting you to come into My embrace. You determined that you must serve Me to please Me.  You wearied yourself and became angry because serving Me didn’t satisfy you the way you thought it would. You thought ‘if only they would acknowledge what I am doing then it would be good.’ I do not need you to please Me. I want you to believe Me. This is your choice today: to try to please Me or to trust Me. Take the faith you have in your service and place it on My Son. His service was sufficient for you. Sit at His feet awhile today and thank Him for His gift. ~God

Romans 4:5 (AMPC)But to one who, not working, trusts (believes fully) in Him who justifies the ungodly, his faith is credited to him as righteousness (the standing acceptable to God.)

Romans 4:5 (CEV) But you cannot make God accept you because of something you do. God accepts sinners only because they have faith in Him.

Hebrews 11:6 But without faith it is impossible to please Him. for he that comes to God must believe that He is, and that He is a rewarder of them that diligently seek Him.

I have asked things of you and you have refused me. You have ignored My requests. Your obedience to Me says that you trust Me and believe that I know what is best for you and that you are willing to honor your commitment to Me. But you honor Me only with your lips. When I have told you not to run in the street in front of a car, how can you expect to receive My protection when you do exactly what I have told you not to do? There are others who share in your disobedience, others who are in positions of authority. I have seen you look to them and continue in your sin, just because they do; but I am calling you to come out and be separate. As long as you refuse My voice, you will remain where you are. I have asked you to love Me with all your heart, with all your soul, with all your strength and with all your mind. Your obedience proves that and your obedience will save your life. My sheep hear My voice, they will not listen to the voice of a stranger.

1 John 2:3-4 This is how we are sure that we have come to know Him: by keeping His commands. The one who says, “I have come to know Him,” yet doesn’t keep His commands, is a liar, and the truth is not in him.

I desire your attention and your affection. I have watched you study diligently trying to find Me. I have counted your steps as you have gone from one thing to another seeking to experience My Presence. I have held you when you were too tired to receive another thing. I have seen you serve and subtly talk about the things you do. It isn’t because you are proud, it is because you seek approval. I know how you have used Me and service to Me to keep from feeling invaluable. O you are precious to Me! How I long for you to sit awhile and be My friend. To look at Me and believe what I’ve told you. It isn’t by works but by My grace. I long for you to value My friendship above all else, for you were created in Me, to do good works, which are already prepared for you. As you sit with Me, I will guide you into all truth. I am the way, the truth and the life. Come now, and know that I have extended you permission to rest, to be still and know Me. Learn from Me what I have for you to do.

Ephesians 2:8 For you are saved by faith, and this is not from yourselves; it is God’s gift–not from works, so that no one can boast. For we are His creation, created in Christ Jesus for good works, which God prepared ahead of time, so that we should walk in them.

I am releasing the Spirit of the Fear of the Lord over your life today.  I Am the Lord who made the heavens and earth and I alone am to be feared. As this understanding settles over your spirit, you will release the things your hands hold. As you regard My Presence, you will stop regarding man in whose nostrils is breath, for what account is he?  My kingdom is coming into your life, for I have seen your seeking and I have heard your desire to release the things of this world. You have shown Me your desire for the things of Me, as you have laid down your sins. I have seen your repentance. I have heard your cry of Abba. My heart is moved to nourish and sustain you. Taste and see that I am good.

2 Peter 3:9 The Lord is not slow concerning His promise, as some count slowness, but is patient with us, not wanting anyone to perish, but for all to come to repentance. 

1 Thessalonians 2:4,6 Since I have been approved by God to be entrusted with the gospel, let me speak not as pleasing men but God, who tests my heart. May I not seek glory from men.

I am your Father who has given you gifts and a calling. I have a desire to see you walking in them.  It is My joy to bring you up into maturity. You are delightful to Me. Your spirit is strong and wise, but there are some places in your soul where you are still a child. These places were places taken early by sin and abuse, they have been locked away and unable to learn and grow. I have redeemed you, all of you. I have been bringing you through training and teaching your childish places to learn to behave. I am calling them up so that you can contain a fuller measure of My Spirit within you. Don’t despise My discipline, for I discipline the one I love, the one I delight in.~God

Hebrews 12:6 for the Lord disciplines the one He loves and punishes every son He receives.

Proverbs 13:18 Poverty and disgrace come to those who ignore discipline, but the one who accepts correction will be honored.
