love never fails 2

The clamor of men is a swirling black smoke covering the nations. I am God, all powerful in My restraint, waiting for the fulfillment of My words. I am above, seated on My throne, but I am also sealed in your heart. This connection is as a white beam of light, revealing you as Mine to the world. This beam is unbroken and cuts through the smoke and clamor. As you unite with others who are mine, this light becomes brighter and begins to take the form of My Bride. I Am the head of the church, your bridegroom. Those who are wise will shine like the brightness of the heavens and those who lead many to righteousness like the stars for ever and ever. Put your hope in Me for My word is certain.

Psalm 33:20-22 My soul waits in hope for the Lord; He is my help and my shield. My heart rejoices in Him, because I trust in His holy name. Let Your unfailing love be upon us, O Lord, even as we put our hope in You.

Psalm 67:1-2 God be gracious to us and bless us, and make His face shine upon us; That Your way be known on the earth, Your salvation among all the nations.

Release! Release! Release! Release your efforts to secure your position. Release your sacrificial service that you do to show yourself worthy of acceptance. You work to be needed for you fear being excluded. “Martha, Martha only one thing is needed, and Mary has chosen what is better, and it will not be taken from her.” Be still before Me and get to know Me. I have chosen you. I chose you in your sins, and I knew the plans I had for you, even then. I want you to release the responsibility of you, your house, your body-soul-spirit, your past-present-future, to Me, and receive My provisions. I have provided everything you need for a life of godliness. This provision comes through your knowledge of Me. Your salvation is in repentance and rest. In repentance and rest at My feet you receive the knowledge of Me. Receive today and believe and walk in faith for its out of faith, that you please Me.

2 Peter 1:3 His divine power has given us everything required for the life and godliness through the knowledge of Him who called us by His own glory and goodness.

2 Corinthians 9:8 And God is able to make every grace overflow to you, so that in every way, always having everything you need, you may excel in every good work.

Rest, My weary warrior, for I stand on your behalf. I have fought and I have won. Look upon Me, coming from battle victorious. See the scars on My hands and the blood on my brow. I don’t call you to war the same way I have fought, but I call you to be still and know that I am God. The battle is not yours. The work I have for you to do is to believe in Me. I want you to know that it isn’t from your hand that My kingdom comes. You are human and I am supernatural. I will not give My glory to another. But I want you to see what I do on your behalf. When you know that it isn’t you and humbly ask for My provision, then you will see My miracles. As long as you strive in your own strength, I will resist you, but when you realize that you can’t do it then I give you My grace. My grace is sufficient. I will not in any way fail you, nor give you up, nor leave you without support. ~Jesus

1 Cor 1:30-31 It is because of Him that you are in Christ Jesus, who has become for us wisdom from God-that is, our righteousness, holiness and redemption. Therefore, as it is written ‘Let the one who boasts boast in the Lord.’

1 Peter 5:5-7 All of you, clothe yourselves with humility toward one another, because, ‘God opposes the proud but shows favor to the humble.’ Humble yourselves, therefore, under God’s might hand, that He may lift you up in due time. Cast all you anxiety on Him for He cares for you.

Isaiah 59:19 From the west, people will fear the name of the Lord, and from the rising of the sun, they will revere His glory. For He will come like a pent-up flood that the breath of the Lord drives along.

I see you on the shore of your struggle. You have been so battered by the waves of life. You set out to sail upon the water and make your way in the world. Even after you met Me, you continued swimming in your own strength to prove to the world who you had become. If they agreed, then perhaps, you thought, it would be true. So you set out to serve, “because the least of these is the greatest”, you said to your unbelieving heart. O sons of men, how long will you turn my honor into shame? How long will you love what is of no use, and run after lies?  Ask of Me, and I will turn your eyes from looking at what is worthless;  and give you life in My ways. When you repent and rest, I will give you revelation. Rest and receive revelation. I will teach you to do My will and lead you on level ground.

John 6:29 Jesus answered, “The work of God is this: To believe in the One He has sent.”

John 14:26 But the Counselor, the Holy Spirit—the Father will send Him in My name—will teach you all things and remind you of everything I have told you.

The way of mercy is mysterious. She is difficult for your flesh to comprehend. Mercy is My way. I desire to see her growing in you. So many desire to see justice and take matters into their own hands and hearts. You are to be to Me as a weaned child with his mother. He doesn’t concern himself with matters too great for him, but has stilled and quieted himself and walks safely beside her. Mercy triumphs over judgement. Humble yourself under My hand and in due time I will lift you up. I AM the One who made the winds and the seas, and they still know My voice. Remember how you have fallen and how I have continually restored you. My grace is sufficient for you, and My grace is sufficient for others.

Isaiah 53:5 (ICB) But he was wounded for the wrong things we did. He was crushed for the evil things we did. The punishment, which made us well, was given to him. And we are healed because of his wounds.

2 Samuel 18:33 The king was deeply moved and went up to the gate chamber and wept. As he walked, he cried, “My son Absalom! My son, my son Absalom! If only I had died instead of you, Absalom, my son, my son!”

There are things in you that lie below the surface. They are content to operate undetected. They cause you to feel hostility to those who want to expose them. They say: “Let me alone” “Let me be”!  They are deceitful and deceive your heart and cause you to withdraw from anyone who catches a glimpse of them.  I HAVE designated the destroyer to remove them from you. I am raising My Mighty Fist against the strongholds of pride in you. I say to that proud serpent. Loosen your grip..Let go of your hold! For this one is Mine! With the shattering strength of My Sacrifice, I am resetting you into the revelation of My Salvation. You will no longer say,  “my own hand has done this, I have worked so hard.”  For you will know that I have delivered you and that I will continue to deliver you. I will help you. Stand still and see the deliverance I bring you because you have taken refuge in Me. Your salvation is from Me. ~Jesus

Jeremiah 6:16 Stand by the roadways and look. Ask about the ancient paths: Which is the way to what is good? Then take it and find rest for yourselves.

rest boat with verse2

In quiet times of prayer, in rest you receive grace to grasp My Glory. In your efforts to accomplish you forfeit this Power. Your flesh fears stillness, because it is afraid of dying, but My Spirit delights when you sit at My feet and faithfully trust Me. The world, your family and even your friends will pressure you to move and do and make things happen. But know, My child, this is not My way. My work is finished and I yearn for you to sit awhile with Me and allow Me to give Myself to you.

Psalm 46:10 Cease striving and know that I am God; I will be exalted among the nations, I will be exalted in the earth.

Hebrews 4:3 and yet His works have been finished since the foundation of the world.

Hebrews 4:9-11 Therefore, a Sabbath rest remains for God’s people. For the person who has entered His rest has rested from his own works, just as God did from His. Let us then make ever effort to enter that rest, so that no one will fall into the same pattern of disobedience.

Hebrews 4:16 Therefore let us come to the throne of grace with boldness, so that we may receive mercy and find grace to help us at the proper time.
