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.

I see you. You hide before Me in clothes of rebellion. You hide before Me, in your many projects, in your work and ministry. You wear these things because you fear no one will see you without them. You have been so disappointed by others who should have loved you, who should have seen you and noticed that you are valuable, that you have given up hope. Instead of grieving your loss, you have run from it to other things. I am asking you to stand still before Me. Allow Me to remove the clothes under which you have hidden. You don’t have to pretend to be anything for Me to see you.  I want to expose your hurting heart so that I can heal it. I know how these things have hurt you. I know why you have done the things you’ve done. But I am here to restore and repair and to show you how to feel again. I am extending resurrection power that will bring life to the deaths you have experienced, and asking you to return to hope. Hope is a powerful force. ~Jesus

John 8:32 You will know the truth and the truth will set you free.

Remember to set you mind on things above and not on striving to make your way on Earth.  When you have done all you know to do, and stand at the end of yourself, then My hope will arise. Come quickly to this place for I wait eagerly for you to arrive.  I have plans for your life, that your mind is not able to understand. Your reasonings and your doubts hinder your progress. I am as a rocket-ship that will take you to the moon. I only need you to step inside and lean back.  Come child-like and believe, for all things are possible for those who believe.

Colossians 3:1-4 Since, then, you have been raised with Christ, set your hearts on things above, where Christ is seated at the right hand of God. Set your mind on things above, not on earthly things. For you died, and your life is now hidden with Christ in God. When Christ, who is your life, appears, then you also will appear with Him in glory.

Mark 9:23 “If you can’?” said Jesus. “Everything is possible for one who believes.”

Luke 1:45 Blessed is she who have believed that the Lord would fulfill His promises to her.

I am aware of your lack of vision and how your hope is dying. I have watched you turn back to Egypt and I have seen how the things of the world have left you longing. Somehow you have learned that you were intended for more than the world offers, but you don’t understand how to access the hope and future that I have for you.  I have you waiting, because I want you to minister from a position of strength. I have asked you to sit awhile with Me so that you can realize that I Am your satisfaction. The things you seek will require your strength and if you haven’t understood that I am your source, you won’t be able to stand in your blessings. I love you, you access Me by believing this and allowing Me the position of the One Who Loves you. I am for you, not against you. ~God

Jeremiah 29:11 “For I know the plans I have for you,’ declares the Lord, ‘plans for welfare and not for calamity to give you a future and a hope.”
