I have been aware of the rejection and loss in your life. I have felt the hurts and know of the scars you have received. I have seen you shattered to pieces. I am aware of every single piece, every fragment of your being. I have watched you rise up, in your strength and say in your heart “I will do whatever it takes to never have to experience such rejection again. I will survive!” Instead of following Me, you allow your fears to direct your heart.  You may not even be aware of this because the survival instinct is so powerful. I love you with an everlasting love. I am your Creator. I am calling you back from your grief. O shattered one. I will rebuild you with precious jewels. I have carried your rejections and loss. I was struck down and abandoned. But through the offering of My life you may live.  It is My joy to see you smile. I rejoice over you, My child. Come to Me and drink from My fountain. Give yourself to Me and let go of your survival. I am Life and I will give you unfailing love. You will no longer live in shame, disgrace or sorrow because I am your Husband, your Redeemer.

Isaiah 54, 55

What do you think it means where it says in My word, that if you give your goods away and even allow your body to be burned, but have not love, it profits you nothing? What do you think it means to “have not love”? I am telling you that I am love. Having love is knowing this. Having love is a relationship with Me. It isn’t manufacturing a service up to others, or even to Me. Having love is learning of My heart for you. Having love is learning of My sacrifice for you. Having love is believing what I say to you. I know how you work. I know how you serve Me. I have seen you give. But I have this against you, that you have left your first love. I am asking you to remember where you were. To take note of how desperately you needed Me. Remember how I forgave you and gave you love when you were unable to even lift your head. Remember and repent of your pride. Return your heart to it’s first love. Have My love. I am here and I am knocking at the door. Open up and have Me come in. I have chosen you as My witness. I want you to know and believe and understand that I am love. ~Jesus

Revelation 2:1-5 “These things says He who holds the seven stars in His right hand, who walks in the midst of the seven golden lampstands: 2 “I know your works, your labor, your patience, and that you cannot bear those who are evil. And you have tested those who say they are apostles and are not, and have found them liars; 3 and you have persevered and have patience, and have labored for My name’s sake and have not become weary. 4 Nevertheless I have this against you, that you have left your first love. 5 Remember therefore from where you have fallen; repent and do the first works, or else I will come to you quickly and remove your lampstand from its place—unless you repent.”

Do you realize that I didn’t settle for you? I didn’t just allow you to come alongside Me. I chose you. I chose you before the creation of time to be Mine.  I gave Myself to have your heart. I am devoted to loving you. I have covered you completely and nothing the enemy says about you penetrates the view I have of you in Me. You are My Bride. My beautiful Bride. I am covering you with My feathers and spreading My garment over you. I want you to know that you are Mine and begin to unfold your heart under My shadow.  I long for you because you are such a part of My heart. Come to Me and as you say “I do” I will lift the veil and show you My glory.

2 Cor 3:7 “But we all, with unveiled face beholding as in a mirror the glory of the Lord, are being transformed into the same image from glory to glory, just as from the Lord, the Spirit.”

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.”

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. I will cover you with My feathers and under My wings you will find refuge. 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.

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.”

I am restoring to you the years the locusts have eaten. Open your mouth wide and receive the revelation. It is My pleasure to give you the kingdom. I am preparing you to become a catalyst who will deliver a unique remedy. You will be as a barrier breaker, one who crushes through walls and stands boldly before Me in intersession. You are a branch of peace, offering healing.  Your witness of Me will be as a billboard drawing in others to come and receive, to be carried along, in MY Current of Joy.

Luke 12:32 “Fear not, little flock.  For it is your Father’s good pleasure to give you the Kingdom.”

I see you so busy in your ways, doing things no one else will do, making sure that everything is in order and ready. You are worried about many things because of this. But only 1 thing is truly needed. I am able to do what needs done and I long to show Myself to you in this. But in order to see Me and receive, you have to be still and take time to KNOW Me. There is great meaning in silence and stillness, that you can’t find in rushing and fretting to get things done. I feel the anxiety in your belly and the fear of failing. Come to Me and take My yoke upon you. My yoke is easy and My burden is light. You also have a need to surrender and be willing to accept My life in you and My plans for you. I want you to trust even when My plans are so different from what you expected of your life.  I want to give you rest for your soul. There is a way that seems right, but it brings pain. You can know you are on the right path by the peace you feel in your belly, for I am good and will lead you to green pastures and by the still waters I will restore your soul.

Psalm 131:2 But I have calmed and quieted myself, I am like a weaned child with its mother; like a weaned child I am content.

Turn your eyes from the things of Earth. I have loosed you from the things that have held you captive. But you must walk away from them. You must come out and be separate. You must put down the things that link you to them. You were made for greater things than the elemental things of the world. The world’s desires are limited and lacking and have always tried to hold you. But I have called you to know Me. In knowing Me you are lifted beyond the things of limit and lack. For nothing is impossible for Me, and I am greater in you than he that is in the world. Today, lift your voice and praise Me for the greater things. The things yet to come to you. For I will accomplish more than you can even ask or imagine, according to My power that is at work within you. ~God

Ezekiel 3:12 Then the Spirit took me up and I heard behind me a voice of a great rushing saying “blessed be the glory of the Lord from his place”.

1 Peter 1:21 Through Jesus you believe in God, who raised Him from the dead and glorified Him, and so your faith and hope are in God.

1 Cor 2:9 “No eye has seen, no ear has heard and no one’s heart has imagined all the things that God has prepared for those who love Him”

You are the one who I have gifted. You are the one who knows Me and carries My Spirit. I want you to realize that You are my gift to others. You have much to offer and are entirely valuable to Me. I have thought of You always. You are always on My mind. My eyes are always on you. I know your thoughts even before you think them.  I have watched you look to others to see what they can offer you. To see how they can make you better or more fulfilled. But you won’t find that in anyone, you are way beyond that. You were made for Me and I have given you abundantly of Myself.  I want you to change your perspective about others and begin to look at how you can share what I’ve put in you with them.  I want you to do this as you look to your friends and also My church. They will not fill you. They will never be able to do this because I intended you to come to Me for that.   I want you to surrender the idea of  “doing it your way..” Because I have plans to give you a hope and a future. Be still and know Me. Will you trust Me?

Colossians 2:9 For the entire fullness of God’s nature dwells bodily in Christ,  and you have been filled by Him, who is the head over every ruler and authority.

1 Corinthians 15:58 Therefore, my dear brothers, be steadfast, immovable, always excelling in the Lord’s work, knowing that your labor in the Lord is not in vain.
