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”

I’ve watched my children struggle in their own creation of reality. To prefer the things their minds create, rather than know the truth.  But you will know the truth and the truth will set you free. Be careful to know My word and not rely on your own understanding, because My ways are just so much higher than yours. People will not easily influence you with their charismatic arguments, when you have surrendered your way to Me. There is a way that seems right, but in the end it leads to death. When you have committed your ways to Me, then you can trust that I will lead you to life! My way may seem like death, as it is a dying to the old and a resurrecting to the new but there is hope in it.  The walk I ask of you is not easy. It is one of denying yourself daily, picking up your cross and following after Me. But I am always with you, and I my reward is well worth your struggle.

Romans 8:18 [ From Suffering to Glory ] For I consider that the sufferings of this present time are not worthy to be compared with the glory which shall be revealed in us.

Luke 9 23 Then He said to them all, “If anyone desires to come after Me, let him deny himself, and take up his cross daily, and follow Me. 24 For whoever desires to save his life will lose it, but whoever loses his life for My sake will save it. 25 For what profit is it to a man if he gains the whole world, and is himself destroyed or lost?

Unbelief is a substance. It will cover you, but it will not go into your belly and meet your needs. Believing is a substance that is able to fill you; for I am the bread of life. Doubt is when you see both unbelief and belief and won’t decide which to take. Don’t waver between two opinions. Doubt makes you a double minded person, who is unstable, and wavering. Decide today to believe in Me. Taste and see that I am good. I Am the God of More Than Enough! Come to Me, come to My throne. You think you have nothing to bring Me, but I see your longing and the hunger of your soul. Bring these to Me for they are of great worth in My sight. Ask Me to fill you and to satisfy you. Blessed are the poor in spirit for the kingdom of heaven is theirs.

Hebrews 4:7 Today if you hear His voice, do not harden your hearts.

John 16:24 Until now you have asked for nothing in My name. Ask and you will receive, so that your joy may be complete.

Lean not on your own understanding. In all your ways acknowledge Me and I will direct your paths. Listen only to My voice. You will recognize My voice because of My love. I am kind and gentle and forgiving. I won’t condemn or belittle you. The voices of strangers seek to destroy you. I am teaching you not to listen to the strange voices you hear. I don’t want you to seek strength from deceitful authority, whose purposes are only to further their own agendas and plans. You know what love is because I showed you when I laid down My life for you. I am calling you to look to My love for you and to stop looking to imperfect people. As you come to know My love, I ask you to forgive those who have disappointed you and have misled you. They aren’t even aware sometimes of what they are doing, because they have been hurt as well. I call you to let go of your bitterness and resentment and to love those who hurt you and to do good to those who persecute you. As you do, you will know the perfect love that casts out fear and you will no longer fear, because you are being made perfect in Me.

1 John 4:1 Dear friends, do not believe every spirit, but test the spirits to see whether they are from God, because many false prophets have gone out into the world.

1 John 4 16-19 God is love. Whoever lives in love lives in God, and God in them. This is how love is made complete among us so that we have confidence on the day of judgment: In this world we are like Jesus. There is no fear in love. But perfect love drives out fear, because fear has to do with punishment. The one who fears is not made perfect in love. We love because he first loved us.

Romans 8:37 Nay, in all things, we are more than conquerors through Him that loved us.

Hebrews 3:12,13 Take heed, brothers, lest there be in any of you an evil heart of unbelief, in departing from the living God. But exhort one another daily, while it is called Today; lest any of you be hardened through the deceitfulness of sin.

Isaiah 41:10 Fear thou not; for I am with thee; be not dismayed; for I am thy God: I will strengthen thee; yea, I will help thee; yea, I will uphold thee with right hand of My righteousness.

Everything you have lost has been taken into account. I am your Redeemer. I hold your tears close to My heart. There is power in your tears. They will turn to fat, golden raindrops and will nourish your future. Your tears are to you as a woman’s water breaking before her delivery. Your time of delivery has come and I am calling you to begin to push. You have suffered but you will see satisfaction. From your pain and sacrifice you will help others. You will see your future and will forget the anguish of your labor. For I suffered and sacrificed to make you righteous. I have ransomed you. I have redeemed you. And because of My blood, I am restoring and repaying what was lost to you. Your redeemer lives! And be sure that all things work for good for you, because you are called to My purposes.

Isaiah 53:11 He shall see of the travail of His soul, and shall be satisfied: by His knowledge shall my righteous servant justify many; for He shall bear their iniquities.

John 16:21 When a woman is in labor she has pain because her time has come. But when she has given birth to a child, she no longer remembers the suffering because of the joy that a person has been born into the world.

Psalm 56:8 You Yourself have recorded my wanderings. Put my tears in Your bottle. Are they not in Your records?

Isaiah 41:13 For I, Yahweh your God, hold your hand and say to you: “Do not fear, I will help you.”

flowers (1 of 2)

I have given you keys to unlock a door of hope in your valley. All creation cries out for you to come through, to be birthed, to be brought back to life. My faithful banner over you is love. I am sending a high tide of My grace, so that you may come through completely. You better believe that the deceitfulness of sin can carry you away from the things I have planned for you, but I have called you to carry the Sword and to cut through completely your connection to the world. I am going to kindle a fire in you, that will convince you to turn all of your affections to Me. My grace is sufficient. My grace is sufficient. My grace is sufficient.

2 Corinthians 12:9 But He said to me, “My grace is sufficient for you, for power is perfected in weakness.” Therefore, I will most gladly boast all the more about my weaknesses, so that Christ’s power may reside in me.

I have often felt your hurt, from disappointments where you have expected things and people fail you.  But I have also seen their desire to love you. The thing that has come between you is your expectations. But I want you to put your hope in Me, and to be able to love regardless. I am teaching you to let your expectations be known and agreed upon, and even then you will often be let down by people. I desire for you to be quick to listen, slow to speak and especially slow to become angry. How can you love your enemies, if you can’t love your friends?  Every person and thing will disappoint you. I have made you in such a way, that only I can satisfy you. Don’t be under obligation, but be under My direction, and love as I have loved you. Trust in Me with all your heart and lean not on what you think should be. Acknowledge Me and I will straighten and direct your path.

Psalm 62:5 For God alone, O my soul, wait in silence, for my hope is from Him.

Romans 13:8 Do not owe anyone anything, except to love one another, for the one who loves another has fulfilled the law.
