I have watched you climb to the top of the mountain, in hopes of escaping your fears. But I see you now looking down at the rising flood, knowing you have no where left to hide. I am the Lord of this flood.  Your fears are no longer allowed to control you. They have governed you and caused limits and lacking. But I have come that you may know life and have it abundantly and that you may be free. There is a place with My Spirit, where you face your fears. It is here, where you come to realize your fears cannot change the truth that I have spoken to you. My truth is a life preserver that will cause you to float as you face the flood. I am with you when you pass through the waters and nothing in all creation can snatch you from My Hand.

John 8:32 You will know the truth and the truth will set you free.

Isaiah 43:2 I will be with you when you pass through the waters, and when you pass through the rivers, they will not overwhelm you. 

Genesis 7:17b the waters increased and lifted up the ark so that it rose above the earth.

Psalm 93:4 Greater than the roar of many waters- the mighty breakers of the sea- the Lord on high is majestic.

rest boat with verse2

In quiet times of prayer, in rest you receive grace to grasp My Glory. In your efforts to accomplish you forfeit this Power. Your flesh fears stillness, because it is afraid of dying, but My Spirit delights when you sit at My feet and faithfully trust Me. The world, your family and even your friends will pressure you to move and do and make things happen. But know, My child, this is not My way. My work is finished and I yearn for you to sit awhile with Me and allow Me to give Myself to you.

Psalm 46:10 Cease striving and know that I am God; I will be exalted among the nations, I will be exalted in the earth.

Hebrews 4:3 and yet His works have been finished since the foundation of the world.

Hebrews 4:9-11 Therefore, a Sabbath rest remains for God’s people. For the person who has entered His rest has rested from his own works, just as God did from His. Let us then make ever effort to enter that rest, so that no one will fall into the same pattern of disobedience.

Hebrews 4:16 Therefore let us come to the throne of grace with boldness, so that we may receive mercy and find grace to help us at the proper time.

bending tree (1 of 1)

You search for Me diligently and yet you won’t find Me until you are willing to surrender. Surrender is necessary. It is more important than being wise and educated. It is more important than knowledge and service. It is more important than building castles and kingdoms, even if you are building them for Me. I will not be found by those who intend to use Me for their purposes. I want you to bring yourself as a living sacrifice on the altar of surrender. Then you will know My Provision, My Presence and My Purpose.You are blessed as you trust Me. But to trust in Me, you must no longer trust in yourself. ~God

Jeremiah 17:5-6 Cursed is the man who trusts in man and makes man his strength.

Genesis 22:8 Abraham answered, “God Himself will provide the lamb for the burnt offering, my son.”

Genesis 2:14 So Abraham called that place The Lord Will Provide. and to this day it is said, “On the mountain of the Lord it will be provided.”

2 Timothy 2:11 If we have died with Him , we will also live with Him.

mourning dove

The letter kills but My Spirit gives life. There is a season of loss and grief that is necessary for you to realize My resurrection in you. As you count yourself dead to sin, you will come to life through My power in you. The Dove came down on Me as I came out of the water of baptism. As you come alive My Dove is released and will lead you as one risen with Me. My Spirit calls to you and says “Arise My darling, come away My beautiful one. The winter is past, the season of singing has come.” Don’t seek to be wise, seek to be surrendered to Me.  I am calling you to allow My Spirit the freedom in you to bring you into a deeper relationship with Me.~Jesus

2 Corinthians 3:6 For the letter kills, but the Spirit produces life.

2 Corinthians 3:3 It is clear that you are Christ’s letter, produced by us, not written with ink but with the Spirit of the living God- not on stone tablets but on tablets that are hearts of flesh.

Matthew 3:11 “I baptize you with water for repentance, but the One who is coming after me is more powerful than I. I am not worthy to remove His sandals. He Himself will baptize you with the Holy Spirit and fire”.

Song of Solomon 2:10 My love calls to me: Arise my darling. Come away, my beautiful one.

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.
