I saw one in a cleft of midnight blue rocks. The rocks were loosely arranged on the sand to form a cavern of sorts that was open to the milky night sky. She had been there for some time for her eyes had adjusted to the darkness and she was delighted to dance in the sand. She shimmered in starlight and the milky mysterious light of the moon.  After a time, there appeared many small lights. They were dots of bright color laughing around her. As I watched them flitting before her, a handle formed along her back. It was like a handle on a big glass beer mug. It came out of the small of her back and was attached to the back of her head.  I saw the Hand of the Father come and pick her up by the handle on her back. He tipped her over and out of her came clear, silver liquid. The liquid appeared to be alive. It poured over the tiny lights of color and they became alive and had the same form as the one. Then, the Hand of the Father scooped them out of the cavern and lifted us up into the night sky. As we surveyed the land below us, we were given an understanding from the Father’s Heart, of His love.  When the understanding had reached its fullness, the Father blew over us and we were lifted and scattered over the land. We floated out over the land in many directions, both far and wide, directed by the Father’s Breath. As we were planted in the place He had for us, there was a silence for a moment, almost so that I wondered if the light were lost, but then a warm glow would appear, spread and illuminate the place where it landed. The glory and knowledge of the Lord filled the whole Earth. It was surely a sight to behold.~Corrine

You are not saved by your strength or ability. The circumstances you try to manage and make happen will not bring your deliverance. To hope in them will be a disappointment to you. I want you to move forward from fullness, from a place of contentment in Me. I don’t want you to speak from want or lack. I am teaching you to be content in whatever circumstance. I want you to understand that I am with you, and to  trust Me to supply all of your needs from My riches in glory. As you come into knowing this, the things you long and hope for no longer take the place of Savior, and you move from a taking posture into one that gives to others. Your gift will open the doors.

Philippians 4:11 Not that I speak from want, for I have learned to be content in whatever circumstances I am.

Proverbs 18:16 A man’s gift makes room for him and brings him before great men.

I haven’t called you into competition with one another for My attention. Nor have I called you to strive to secure your position in My kingdom. It doesn’t please Me when you feel that you have to “one up” or when you try to silence other voices, that have the same gift. These things are from your human nature and lead to death. I am calling you to live from your spiritual nature, where you are united with Me. I want you to grow up into My likeness and love and consider one another as better than yourself.  Know that the things you strive to be, you already are, you need only to believe. Let your land, your house, your being be filled with the knowledge of Me and you will have peace and cease striving. ~God

 Prayer asking for deliverance from human nature: Lord Jesus, enable me to walk in the Spirit and not in the flesh. Help me to set my mind on the things of the Spirit which are life and peace. Lead me, by Your Spirit, to put to death the deeds of my human nature, because I am Your child. I am not a child of human nature, but one born of the Spirit and I cry to You, Abba Father. In Jesus Name  (Romans 8)

You question My goodness amid your struggles and you rage against the fact that I ask you to praise Me. You look at your life and see shambles and broken down walls and scream ‘if God is so good, why?’ But, the good life, of earth, is a lie. You struggle to build something that is not important to Me. For I am in the broken!  I am in your touch to another broken one. I am in your comfort to one crying out.  You don’t have to do anything, just by being near, and being filled with My Spirit, I can minister through you.  I want you to long for more than the “good life”. And to learn to trust Me with a life that you can’t control.  I call you to live beyond broken, with your eyes and heart set toward a new life with Me. For unless I build your house, you labor in vain. I have greater things planned for you. I am enlarging your vision to see beyond this life and your struggles here, to view the mansion I am preparing for you in Heaven. Blessed are the poor in spirit, for theirs is the kingdom of God. ~ Jesus

John 12:29 Anyone who loves their life will lose it, while anyone who hates their life in this world will keep it for eternal life.

Mark 10:29 “Truly I tell you,” Jesus replied, “no one who has left home or brothers or sisters or mother or father or children or fields for me and the gospel will fail to receive a hundred times as much in this present age: homes, brothers, sisters, mothers, children and fields- along with persecutions- and in the age to come eternal life. But many who are first will be last, and the last first.

Ephesians 1:11,12 In Christ I have obtained and inheritance, having been predestined according to the plan of Him who works all things according to the counsel of His will, that we who have trusted in Christ should be to the praise of His glory.

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.

I am calling you to come to Me. Come away with Me. Lay down your strategies and lay down your fears. I have accepted you. I want you to be with Me, to come and rest in the secret place of My strong hand. You are unable to secure yourself and your methods bring harm to you and to those around you. But I have provided a shelter in My Son. He is a strong tower around you because He has fought and won your battles. I know you are afraid and feel forsaken by those you thought were strong. But I have allowed these things so that you will learn to depend only on Me. So that you will come to the only One who can truly love you. Once you know true love, you will be able to give it back. To give it back freely, just as you received it. There is strength in the knowing of My Love. In knowing My Love you can find the courage to face the things that need changing in you. I am calling you to come to Me, just as you are! I am calling you to ask Me to be your strength, to be your wisdom, to be the One who is always for you. Because I am.~God

Romans 5:1 Therefore being justified by faith, we have peace with God through our Lord Jesus Christ.

Isaiah 26:12 Lord thou will ordain peace for us: for thou also hast wrought all our works in us.

1 Peter 5:6-7 Humble yourselves therefore under God’s mighty hand, that He may exalt you in due time: Casting all your cares upon Him, for He cares for you.

Romans 15:13 May the God of all hope fill me with joy and peace as I trust in Him, so that I may overflow with hope by the power of the Holy Spirit.

I am calling you to a deeper walk with Me. As the bonds that have bound you are broken, you will grieve. As the people who you have so trusted disappoint you in their human-ness, you will be broken-hearted and know sorrow. But I am maturing you and bringing you to a place where your dependence is only on Me. When people forsake you, know that I will take you up. And I will give you perfect love that casts out fear. And I will heal your broken heart. My redeemed will return and come with singing and everlasting joy shall be upon their head. They will have gladness and joy for sorrow and mourning will flee. I am Spirit and where My Spirit is there is freedom. As you look and contemplate on Me you will be transformed into My likeness with ever-increasing Glory.

2 Corinthians 3:17,18 Now the Lord is the Spirit and where the Spirit of the Lord is, there is freedom. We all, with unveiled faces, are looking as in a mirror at the glory of the Lord and are being transformed into the same image from glory to glory, this is from the Lord who is the Spirit.

Psalm 27:10 Even if my father and mother abandon me, the Lord cares for me.

Psalm 27:13-14 I am certain that I will see the Lord’s goodness in the land of the living. Wait for the Lord; be strong and courageous. Wait for the Lord.

Deuteronomy 31:8 The Lord is the One who will go before you. He will be with you; He will not leave you or forsake you. Do not be afraid or discouraged.
