You are My witness. One that I have chosen to know and believe that I am God. I see you as one commanding works of wonder in My Name. You will operate in courage and kindness as you have come to understand the love I have for My Church. Call down from Me an air assault, for I will occupy the Earth! My glory and the knowledge of Me is to soon be revealed. My enemies will be routed and removed. Righteousness, peace, and joy in the Holy Ghost will increase in your nation.  My glory will be declared among My people, and My wonders will be with them. ~God

Rom 14:17,18 For the kingdom of God is not eating and drinking, but righteousness, peace and joy in the Holy Spirit. Whoever serves Christ in this way is acceptable to God and approved by men.

Habakkuk 2:14 For the earth will be filled with the knowledge of the Lord’s glory, as the waters cover the sea.

Faith is a force that compels and propels you forward. You know that nothing in all creation can separate you from My love and I want you to be secure in Me. I want you to hope in Me and believe the promises I’ve told you. But, it is as if you are standing on one end of a bridge, content not to cross over.  The bridge keeps you out of the water, but crossing over it brings you into a wide spacious land.  I have My Hand outstretched and I am asking you to come. I have more for you to receive and plans to give you a future and a hope. I am asking you to let go of your comforts, your crutches, and the things that bring you shame and to hold My Hand instead. I want you to believe even though you can’t see beyond your outstretched arms.

Joshua 1:9 Have I not commanded you? “Be strong and courageous. Do not be afraid; do not be discouraged, for the Lord your God will be with you wherever you go.”

I require your boundaries to surrender to Me. The “Never Agains” that you have vowed are melting beneath My Sovereignty. My love soothes over them until they are unnecessary and your fears are dissolved. You will look and wonder as you are unable to even recall those tender feelings. My healing will be complete. I am your Redeemer. I am doing a new thing now. Do you perceive it? My Seed of hope was planted within you and it is sprouting and growing towards My glory. Those who hope in Me will not be disappointed.~ Jesus

Hebrews 13:5-6 For He Himself has said, I will never leave you nor forsake you. Therefore we may boldly say: The Lord is my helper, I will not be afraid, What can man do to me?

Psalm 33:20-22 We wait for Yahweh, He is or help and shield. For our hearts rejoice in Him because we trust in His holy name. May Your faithful love rest on us, Yahweh, for we put our hope in You.

Lift your heart and your hands from your many tasks. If you are willing I will release on you a Mary Anointing. The more you do, the less room you have to witness My miracles. But as you let those things go and sit at My feet, you will be witness to My wonders.  You have within you the ability to soar and I see you flying freely, empowered by My Spirit with joy in your heart. Look with your faith at Me, not at your circumstances, begin to discern the direction My Spirit is moving you. Continue in a position of trust, leaning into Me and not on your own understanding, for I will direct you.  I am bringing you deeper into relationship with Me and revealing to you the secret treasures of My being.

Luke 10:41 The Lord answered her, “Martha, Martha, you are worried and upset about many things, but one thing is necessary. Mary has made the right choice, and it will not be taken away from her.”

Proverbs 3-5-6 Trust in the Lord with all your heart and lean not on your own understanding; in all your ways submit to Him, and He will make your paths straight.

Psalm 37:4 Take delight in the Lord, and He will give you the desires of your heart

I was alone on the shore of the ocean. The waves were pounding upon my back. I tried to stand but they were strong. My face was in the sand.  I stood and tried to run but my feet buried deep as the water pulled. The waves continued to beat. I cried for help. I cried out to God. I began to see a Rock behind me. It was big and tall and wide, able to stand and endure the beating surf.  I leaned against it and then I felt His arms. As the next wave crashed over the rock, Jesus said to me, “The punishment that brought you peace was upon Me”.

Ephesians 2:8-9 For you are saved by grace through faith, and this is not from yourselves; It is God’s gift.

2 Samuel 22:31-32 As for God, His way is perfect; The word of the Lord is proven. He is a shield for all who take refuge in Him. For who is God besides the Lord? And who is the Rock except our God?

rest boat with verse2

In quiet times of prayer, in rest you receive grace to grasp My Glory. In your efforts to accomplish you forfeit this Power. Your flesh fears stillness, because it is afraid of dying, but My Spirit delights when you sit at My feet and faithfully trust Me. The world, your family and even your friends will pressure you to move and do and make things happen. But know, My child, this is not My way. My work is finished and I yearn for you to sit awhile with Me and allow Me to give Myself to you.

Psalm 46:10 Cease striving and know that I am God; I will be exalted among the nations, I will be exalted in the earth.

Hebrews 4:3 and yet His works have been finished since the foundation of the world.

Hebrews 4:9-11 Therefore, a Sabbath rest remains for God’s people. For the person who has entered His rest has rested from his own works, just as God did from His. Let us then make ever effort to enter that rest, so that no one will fall into the same pattern of disobedience.

Hebrews 4:16 Therefore let us come to the throne of grace with boldness, so that we may receive mercy and find grace to help us at the proper time.
