So many speak of Me without seeing Me. They speak of times others have seen Me, but they close their hearts to really knowing Me. They take what was given in the past and make a lifestyle around it of traditions and requirements. They keep Me out because they have all they can manage and they fear not being in control. But I am alive and My word is living and active. I have called you to a deeper place with Me. A place of communion with My Spirit, where you see Me and know My heart, where you allow Me to flood over you. A flood is not something you control. But I promise you will never regret allowing Me to flood over you, but those who have kept Me at bay, will regret it. When the Day comes, they will consider all things a loss compared to knowing Me. But you, who have allowed Me to flood your being, will greatly rejoice. Even now, you rejoice for I will cause you to see, to have visions and revelations, discernment and foresight. It pleases Me that you believe that I am and that I reward those who seek Me, and that you delight in Me.

2 Kings 6:17 Then Elisha prayed, “Lord, please open his eyes and let him see.” so the Lord opened the servant’s eyes.

John 5:19 Then Jesus replied, “I assure you: The Son is not able to do anything on His own, but only what He sees the Father doing. For whatever the Father does, the Son also does these things in the same way.”

Philippians 3:10 My goal is to know Him and the power of His resurrection and the fellowship of His sufferings, being conformed to His death, assuming that I will somehow reach the resurrection from among the dead.

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 don’t need to forge ahead frantic and furious. Your future and My vision for your life will not come about through the sheer force of your effort. It is not by might or by power but by My Spirit. My Spirit operates through faith. I don’t want you captured by your calling; like a woman who turns all of her affection on her children and forsakes her husband. I am the One who longs for your affection. As you are nourished by your communion with Me, your calling will be fulfilled. Come with Me and rest. In resting you reveal your faith in Me. There is great power at work in those who believe and lean into Me.~ Jesus

Ephesians 1:19 and what is the immeasurable greatness of His power to us who believe, according to the working of His vast strength.

Song of Solomon 8:5 Who is this that comes up from the wilderness leaning on the one she loves?

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.

bending tree (6 of 6)

You were created to belong to Me, to belong in My family. You have a need for this built into your framework. I will meet all your needs according to My riches in glory in My Son. I will never leave you nor forsake you. I know you are afraid because you have lost so many. You must walk by faith and trust Me. I will provide. I am your Father in Heaven who loves you the most. Look to Me and turn your eyes in faith, away from fear. Hold My hand by faith, knowing that I have plans to prosper you, to show you goodness and mercy, not to harm you.

Isaiah 51 :11 Therefore the redeemed of the Lord shall return, and come with singing unto Zion; and everlasting joy shall be upon their head: they shall obtain gladness and joy; and sorrow and mourning shall flee away.
