I see you so busy in your ways, doing things no one else will do, making sure that everything is in order and ready. You are worried about many things because of this. But only 1 thing is truly needed. I am able to do what needs done and I long to show Myself to you in this. But in order to see Me and receive, you have to be still and take time to KNOW Me. There is great meaning in silence and stillness, that you can’t find in rushing and fretting to get things done. I feel the anxiety in your belly and the fear of failing. Come to Me and take My yoke upon you. My yoke is easy and My burden is light. You also have a need to surrender and be willing to accept My life in you and My plans for you. I want you to trust even when My plans are so different from what you expected of your life.  I want to give you rest for your soul. There is a way that seems right, but it brings pain. You can know you are on the right path by the peace you feel in your belly, for I am good and will lead you to green pastures and by the still waters I will restore your soul.

Psalm 131:2 But I have calmed and quieted myself, I am like a weaned child with its mother; like a weaned child I am content.

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.

ocean life 7

Your shield of faith is alive and empowered through your knowledge of My truths. I want you to know who I say you are. You are My child, My warrior, an extension of My life. I want you to know that nothing can separate you from Me. As you lift up these beliefs, you are protected from the fiery darts that surely come as you enter the battle for My Kingdom. I am training your hands for battle, teaching you to fight the good fight of faith. Your weapons are not angry hands striking, but your weapons are mighty in love and prayer and praise of Me. They pull down strongholds and accomplish much for My kingdom. Your battle is not against flesh and blood, but against powers and principalities and dark forces. It is these dark forces that move men to sin. And you have the ability from My Spirit within you to slay these forces and to claim what I have accomplished on your behalf through My death and resurrection. You are more than victorious through Me, more than a conqueror and through you I will diffuse a fragrance of the knowledge of Me in every place. I will preserve you coming in and going out from this day forth, until forever more.~

John 14:12 Verily, verily, I say unto you, “He that believeth on Me, the works that I do shall he do also; and greater works than these shall he do; because I go unto My Father.

Philippians 4:13 I can do all things through Christ which strengthens me.

Psalm 47 O clap your hands, all ye people; shout unto God with the voice of triumph, Sing praises to God, sing praises unto our King, sing praises. For God is the King of all the earth: sing ye praises with understanding.
