Speak life to your future. The devil speaks death and discouragement and tries to steal your future for his purposes. He uses deception and deceit to produce confusion. You have the breath of life within you, because My Spirit has joined with your spirit. Use this breath to speak My word to your own ears and hear what the Spirit says to His church. As you begin to recognize the messages you have believed of death and discouragement, disease and disaster I want you to call back life, encouragement, health and the promised future I have planned for you. When the thief is caught he is required to pay back double what he has taken. I have told you that you are blessed and to be fruitful and multiply and I watch over My word to see that it comes to pass. ~God

Genesis 1:28 God blessed them and said “be fruitful, multiply and fill the earth and subdue it. Rule the fish of the sea, the birds of the sky, and every creature that crawls on the earth”.

Exodus 22:7 If anyone gives a neighbor silver or goods for safekeeping and they are stolen from the neighbor’s house, the thief, if caught, must pay back double.

Jeremiah 29:11 “For I know the plans I have for you,” declares the Lord, “plans to prosper you and not to harm you, plans to five you hope and a future.”

I have been aware of the rejection and loss in your life. I have felt the hurts and know of the scars you have received. I have seen you shattered to pieces. I am aware of every single piece, every fragment of your being. I have watched you rise up, in your strength and say in your heart “I will do whatever it takes to never have to experience such rejection again. I will survive!” Instead of following Me, you allow your fears to direct your heart.  You may not even be aware of this because the survival instinct is so powerful. I love you with an everlasting love. I am your Creator. I am calling you back from your grief. O shattered one. I will rebuild you with precious jewels. I have carried your rejections and loss. I was struck down and abandoned. But through the offering of My life you may live.  It is My joy to see you smile. I rejoice over you, My child. Come to Me and drink from My fountain. Give yourself to Me and let go of your survival. I am Life and I will give you unfailing love. You will no longer live in shame, disgrace or sorrow because I am your Husband, your Redeemer.

Isaiah 54, 55

I have compassion on you. I see you as a sprout in the edge of the ocean trying to grow up under pounding waves. I have compassion on you. You are mine. I will scoop you up and carry you with me. I plan to plant you in a spacious place, where you can grow and become an Oak of Righteousness to display My splendor. I have compassion on you. I will not leave you nor forsake you. Stand and see the deliverance I am bringing to you and be of good courage, for I am strengthening your heart. Don’t look to others or even to yourself, for I AM your saving strength. Be still and know that I AM God. The process of maturing will happen speedily as you let go of your own efforts and look only to Me. When you hear My voice, don’t harden your heart and resolve to solve your own problems. Don’t say “I think or I know” but rather, in all your ways, acknowledge Me, and I will direct your path.  I have compassion on you.

1 John 4:18 (AMPC)There is no fear in love [dread does not exist], but full-grown (complete, perfect) love turns fear out of doors and expels every trace of terror! For fear brings with it the thought of punishment, and [so] he who is afraid has not reached the full maturity of love [is not yet grown into love’s complete perfection].

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.’
