I have made provisions for you. I meet all of your needs out of My riches in glory.  But sometimes you are blinded by your expectations and don’t comprehend My provisions. I am leading you to newness. In order to see the new you have to step out of the old and be willing to believe that something different will work. If you think that only the old will do, then you can’t embrace the new.  I have new beginnings and today I am releasing to you the faith to believe and hope. I will flood your eyes with light so that you can see the future that I have for you. I will lead out the blind in ways they have not known. I will turn the darkness to light and make the rough places smooth for you. I only ask that you place your hand in Mine and believe. ~ Jesus

Isaiah 42:16 I will lead the blind by ways they have not known, along unfamiliar paths I will guide them; I will turn the darkness into light before them and make the rough places smooth. These are the things I sill do; I will  not forsake them.

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.

I have watched you change your spots to match the colors of your surroundings. To be like another person, to be what you think they approve. I have seen how you have grown and the lack of approval you have experienced. Those you looked to, hadn’t been approved either. They had none to give. There have been those who have approved you briefly, but their purposes were not genuine. So many have needed you to need them.  I did not intend for life to be this way. But I have provided truth for you.  You have My approval. I have set My love over your heart as a seal. Sanctify Me as Lord in your heart. I want you to turn from others and into Me.  Allow Me to be the One who approves you.  It is My desire that you be conformed to My likeness, to live and walk as I did.  You carry My very Presence within you! I work in you and will direct you to understand that you are complete in Me.

Romans 12:2 Do not conform to the pattern of this world, but be transformed by the renewing of your mind. Then you will be able to test and approve what God’s will is—his good, pleasing and perfect will.

Colossians 2:9-10 For in Him dwells all the fullness of the Godhead bodily;  and you are complete in Him, who is the head of all principality and power.

I am about to shoot you into newness. I have been preparing you through the things you have experienced and come through. I see you in a cannon! A human cannonball with a dramatic flaming cape, catapulted into your future. You are wearing My joy and the flames of My love. Let your faith arise now, and believe Me for the greater things. I am not pleased by one who shrinks back and settles.  You know I have plans for you for good, not to harm you. The enemy will shoot his arrows, but they will not penetrate your shield of faith. I have prayed for you. I am releasing over you now a courage greater than you have yet known. You will not fail. Set your heart now as flint to do my will and know that you will not be ashamed.

Isaiah 50:7 For the Lord God will help me; therefore shall I not be confounded: therefore have I set my face like a flint, and I know that I shall not be ashamed.

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.

I want to encourage you to let go. I see your possessiveness. I am Creator and Sustainer, Author & Perfector, Beginning & End. I am Lord. Your anointing becomes contaminated when you try to control. You say of things “This is mine” “My marriage” “My ministry” “My friends” “My church” “My house” “My life”. When you say “this thing is mine” you are saying that you are in control of its growth and its behavior and you limit and confine it to what you can do with it. But I, The Lord, have plans to prosper you; plans to give you a hope and a future, not to harm you, I will enlarge your territory as you release and recognize that I am in control. I want to peel away this control you use to protect yourself from others. When you allow others to be free around you, even in their ugliness and sin, you will experience perfect love. I want you to know perfect love and to show this to others. Perfect love gives it doesn’t have to take or require anything of others. ~ Jesus
