Today is a day of new beginnings! A restart. I am doing a new thing. I am providing a way out of confusion and turmoil. I am bringing you to spring of Living Water. I am supernatural. My ways are mysterious, but you can be sure of My faithfulness to you. I am asking you today to step out of confusion and worry and the turning over and over in your mind and to step into My Mystery. I am giving you peace here today. It may feel foreign to you, as you are more familiar with worry. You will find Me and come to understand that I offer rest for your soul. Step away from worry and into My arms. You can’t save people. I am the only Savior. You are only required to love.-God

 

John 7:38 “The one who believes in Me, as the Scripture has said, will have streams of living water flow from deep within him.”

John 3:16 “For God loved the world in this way: He gave His One and Only Son, so that everyone who believes in Him will not perish but have eternal life.”

Now that you have set aside your efforts to impress Me; Now that you have rested from trying to prove that you are good enough; Now that you have surrendered your abilities- I am about to impress you! I am giving you eyes to see and ears to hear the things that you haven’t seen or been able to comprehend. It is My desire to show Myself strong on your behalf, and to press onto you a revelation of Who I AM. I am awaiting your praise! Allow Me today to kiss you with the kisses of My mouth, to reveal to you the truth of Who I AM. I am placing hope in you today, the hope of glory. Those who hope in Me will not be disappointed.~God

Song of Solomon 1:2 May He kiss me with the kisses of His mouth! For your love is better than wine!

1 Corinthians 2:9 But as it is written: no eye has seen and ear did not hear, and what never entered the human mind- God prepared this for those who love Him.

Ephesians 3:18-19 I pray that you may be able to comprehend with all the saints what is the length and width, and height and depth of God’s love and to know the Messiah’s love that surpasses knowledge, so you may be filled with all the fullness of God.

Ephesians 3:20-21 Now to Him who is able to do above and beyond all that we ask or think according to the power that works in us- to Him be glory in the church and in Christ Jesus to all generations, forever and ever. Amen

Do you understand that I have chosen you? You did not choose Me, but I have chosen you and appointed you so that you might go and bear fruit. You have had it in your mind, that you decided to come to Me and desire to belong and that I allowed it. This is where your striving begins.  But that is entirely wrong. I created you, formed you for Myself. I sought after you when you were not aware of Me and opened your eyes to know the truth. I gave you the faith to believe.  As you come to understand this, you will enter My rest and begin to trust instead of try so hard to belong.  I appoint and promote and will place you where I intend you to be. The government rests on My shoulders and great is your peace. When I instruct you to get your house in order, I am asking you to recognize Me as Lord, and to cease moving and doing in an effort to earn the right to be included. Be still and know that I am Lord. Purify yourself from anything dishonorable, such as pride and competition, selfish ambition and scorn, and you will be a special instrument, set apart and useful to Me, prepared for every good work. ~God

2 Timothy 1:9 He saved us and called us with a holy calling, not according to our works, but according to His own purpose and grace, which was given to us in Christ Jesus before time began.

Ephesians 1:4-6 For He chose us in Him, before the creation of the world, to be holy and blameless in His sight. In love He predestined us to be adopted through Jesus Christ for Himself, according to His favor and will, to the praise of His glorious peace that He favored us with in the Beloved.

I bring you to the place at the end of yourself. The place where you don’t know what to do. I bring you here and ask you to wait for a time. You remind Me of My caterpillars squirming before I wrap them in their silks. I feel your desire to flee and your overwhelming desire to JUST DO something, but I am asking you to be still.  I want you to understand that you do not have the power to do what needs doing. You can’t change these circumstances.  I have called you to be still. Being still requires great faith. I ask you, here in your stillness, “have you placed your hope in Me?”  Hope in Me is beyond what you can do and know and see. As you are waiting here there are things I have to teach you. One thing for you to learn- is that nothing in all creation can separate you from My love. Another thing- is that in your union with My Son, you will rise above all circumstances. Nothing can keep you down because there is no greater power than Jesus. In your waiting, you, just like My caterpillars, are being transformed. Do you believe Me for things greater than you can hear or see or that your mind can conceive? These greater things, are the things I have for you! God

Romans 8:10,11 But if Christ is in you, then even though your body is subject to death because of sin, the Spirit gives life because of righteousness. And if the Spirit of Him who raised Jesus from the dead is living in you, He who raised Christ from the dead will also give life to your mortal bodies because of His Spirit who lives in you.

Romans 8:18 I consider that our present sufferings are not worth comparing with the glory that will be revealed in us.

Romans 8:24 For in this hope we were saved. But hope that is seen is no hope at all. Who hopes for what they already have?

Romans 8:37-38 No, in all these things we are more than conquerors through Him who loved us. For I am convinced that neither death nor life, neither angels nor demons, neither the present nor the future, nor any powers, neither height nor depth, nor anything else in all creation, will be able to separate us from the love of God that is in Christ Jesus our Lord!

2 Cor 3:18 And we all, who with unveiled faces contemplate the Lord’s glory, are being transformed into His image with ever increasing glory, which comes from the Lord, who is the Spirit.

2 Cor 3:17 Now the Lord is the Spirit, and where the Spirit of the Lord is, there is freedom.

I am calling you to come to Me. Come away with Me. Lay down your strategies and lay down your fears. I have accepted you. I want you to be with Me, to come and rest in the secret place of My strong hand. You are unable to secure yourself and your methods bring harm to you and to those around you. But I have provided a shelter in My Son. He is a strong tower around you because He has fought and won your battles. I know you are afraid and feel forsaken by those you thought were strong. But I have allowed these things so that you will learn to depend only on Me. So that you will come to the only One who can truly love you. Once you know true love, you will be able to give it back. To give it back freely, just as you received it. There is strength in the knowing of My Love. In knowing My Love you can find the courage to face the things that need changing in you. I am calling you to come to Me, just as you are! I am calling you to ask Me to be your strength, to be your wisdom, to be the One who is always for you. Because I am.~God

Romans 5:1 Therefore being justified by faith, we have peace with God through our Lord Jesus Christ.

Isaiah 26:12 Lord thou will ordain peace for us: for thou also hast wrought all our works in us.

1 Peter 5:6-7 Humble yourselves therefore under God’s mighty hand, that He may exalt you in due time: Casting all your cares upon Him, for He cares for you.

Romans 15:13 May the God of all hope fill me with joy and peace as I trust in Him, so that I may overflow with hope by the power of the Holy Spirit.

Be careful to surrender daily to Me. I am in your surrender. As you release your own efforts and worries and learn to rely on My Strength you will come to know that I AM FOR YOU!  It is dangerous for you to operate in your own strength because your enemy prowls around like a lion seeking whom he may devour. But I am the Good Shepherd and have laid down My life to protect you. In your surrender you come under My protection. The blood I shed speaks over you. You are My sheep and know My voice. You will not recognize the voice of a stranger. Faith, hope and love remain, but the love speaks the loudest and it never fails. It is patient and kind. It does not envy or boast or insist on having its own way. This is how you will recognize who My children are, because everyone who loves is born of Me.  I AM FOR YOU and no weapon formed against you shall prosper and you will refute every tongue that rises against you. This is your heritage as My servant, your vindication from Me. After the shots are fired and the foundations laid bare, and you think you have won, the GREATEST battle begins. It is the battle to love and forgive and live again!

Romans 15:13 May the God of hope fill you with all joy and peace in believing, that you may abound in hope by the power of the Holy Spirit.

Isaiah 43:18 Forget the former things; do not dwell in the past.

Romans 12:21 Be not overcome of evil, but overcome evil with good.

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.

2 Corinthians 1:22 Now it is God who makes us stand firm in Christ. He anointed us, set His seal of ownership on us, and put His Spirit in our hearts as a deposit, guaranteeing what is to come.

2 Corinthians 2:14 But thanks be to God, who always leads us as captives in Christ’s triumphal procession and uses us to spread the knowledge of  Him everywhere.
