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 am planting you to display My splendor. 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.’

There is a secret place in you. A place beyond your mind and tangled thoughts, a place above your heart and the heavy hurts. It is a place of your spirit where you are united with Me. A place where you can understand that you are a citizen of Heaven and are in the Earth but not of it. As your circumstances crowd around you, take time to believe My promises. Stop dwelling on mistakes and regrets. Stop trying to escape and know that I have called you to these places for a time, so that you can glorify Me. I will provide the grace you need. You have a pursuing enemy, but I have overcome. And I am greater in you, than your enemies. I take you from glory to glory and with each place in your life I strengthen your faith and enable you to praise Me. Praising Me is your testimony and you conquer by the blood of the Lamb and by the word of your testimony. ~ God

Philippians 4:19 And my God will supply all your needs according to His riches in glory in Christ Jesus.

Philippians 3:20 but our citizenship is in heaven, from which we also eagerly wait for a Savior, the Lord Jesus Christ.

2 Corinthians 5:17 Therefore, if anyone is in Christ, he is a new creation; old things have passed away, and look new things have come.

Romans 4:20 He did not waver in unbelief at God’s promise but was strengthened in his faith and gave glory to God.

I see you seeking out others thinking they will be a strength to you. You begin to idolize them and follow hard after them in a way that you should only follow Me. When I allow you to see their weaknesses and faults you are broken and hurt. You come up fighting and judging with blame and accusations. Anytime you lay on a foundation of sand it will be washed out from under you. I am your foundation. I am a Rock that withstands the storms. After you confess your idolatry and after the pain of your disappointment recedes, after the death of a thing, new life emerges. I will enable you to love what IS not what you thought should be. And through this Christ-Like love a transformation occurs because LOVE never fails. Don’t give up when all feels lost because in this place of winter, this place of disappointment, at the end of your hopes is where I do My greatest works! And you will reap a harvest if you do not give up! ~ God

John 11:25 Jesus said unto her, I am the resurrection and the life: he that believeth in Me, though he were dead, yet shall live.

Psalm 55:22 Cast thy burden upon the Lord, and he shall sustain thee: He shall never suffer the righteous to be moved.

Hebrews 10:23 Let us hold unswervingly to the hope we profess, for He who promised is faithful.

John 12:24 Very truly I tell you, unless a kernel of wheat falls to the ground and dies, it remains only a single seed. But if it dies, it produces many seeds.

1 Samuel 2:2 There is no one holy like the Lord; there is no one besides you; there is no ROCK like our God.

There are places in you where you have surrendered to the enemy. You have made agreements with him through your sinful actions. Even if you no longer do those things, agreements were made, and as long as these agreements remain intact, there is part of you held in enemy territory. But you have every right to renounce and reclaim these surrendered areas for I have purchased this right for you. Allow My Spirit to search you and reveal and as He leads, confess your agreement as sin, and renounce it. In doing this, you will have a greater ability to walk in victory.

Prayer declaration: Father God, In the name of Jesus, I confess_____________.  I ask You to forgive me. I recognize that Your blood was shed for this sin and has paid for my right to   renounce my agreement with the enemy and to call back to my soul areas that I surrendered. I call them back now. I renounce agreements that my actions or my mouth have made. I no longer agree with the enemy, but I choose to agree with the Lord Jesus. Thank You! Jesus, for redeeming my soul. 

Psalm 97:10 You who love the Lord, hate evil. He preserves the souls of His godly ones; He rescues them from the power of the wicked. 

2 Cor 5:14-15 For Christ’s love compels us, because we are convinced that one died for all, therefore all died. And he died for all, that those who live should no longer live for themselves but for him who died for them and was raised again.

Your hungry eyes seek satisfaction. Come and repent of what you have seen, and sought after in the world. Your mouth is parched and dry. Your senses suffer lack because you search only for things you can see.  Until you establish Me as “THE MEETER of NEEDS” you will long and be unfulfilled. For I am jealous for you, and covet your affections. Your affections for other things, have blinded you. You have eyes but they don’t see. You have ears but they don’t hear.  You don’t believe that I am enough or that I will be enough in the future. Come today in repentance and rest and allow Me to open your eyes to the things of My Spirit. Understand that I am the source of your satisfaction. When you establish Me as the Source,  I become a shield for your heart. My way is perfect and My word is proven. And I meet all of your needs according to My riches in glory in Christ Jesus.

Mark 8:16-21 They were discussing among themselves that they did not have any bread. Aware of this, Jesus said to them, “Why are you discussing that you do not have any bread? Don’t you understand or comprehend? Is your heart hardened? Do you have eyes, and not see, and do you have ears, and not hear? And do you not remember? When I broke the five loaves for the 5,000, how many baskets full of pieces of bread did you collect?” “Seven they said.” And Jesus said to them, “Don’t you understand yet?”

Ephesians 1:17,18 I pray that the God of our Lord Jesus Christ, the glorious Father, would give you a spirit of wisdom and revelation in the knowledge of Him. I pray that the perception of your mind may be enlightened so you may know what is the hope of His calling.

I have connected you directly to heaven through My indwelling Spirit. It is as a beam that cuts through the swirling clamor. This allows you to receive the things you need. I am in you, and you are in Me. Today, I want to release contentment to you. As you pray, focus on contentment coming down into your being. Contentment is a state of being where you are satisfied together with Me in our dwelling. It is the happy home you long for in this life.  Seek this state of being with Me before you move forward. There is great gain in godliness with contentment. As you seek first My kingdom, other things added will bless you and not take the life out of you. ~Jesus

Luke 8:18 So take care how you listen; for whoever has, to him more shall be given; and whoever does not have, even what he thinks he has shall be taken away from him.

1 Timothy 6:6 But godliness actually is a means of great gain when accompanied by contentment.
