Unbelief is a substance. It will cover you, but it will not go into your belly and meet your needs. Believing is a substance that is able to fill you; for I am the bread of life. Doubt is when you see both unbelief and belief and won’t decide which to take. Don’t waver between two opinions. Doubt makes you a double minded person, who is unstable, and wavering. Decide today to believe in Me. Taste and see that I am good. I Am the God of More Than Enough! Come to Me, come to My throne. You think you have nothing to bring Me, but I see your longing and the hunger of your soul. Bring these to Me for they are of great worth in My sight. Ask Me to fill you and to satisfy you. Blessed are the poor in spirit for the kingdom of heaven is theirs.

Hebrews 4:7 Today if you hear His voice, do not harden your hearts.

John 16:24 Until now you have asked for nothing in My name. Ask and you will receive, so that your joy may be complete.

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.

Turn your eyes from the things of Earth. I have loosed you from the things that have held you captive. But you must walk away from them. You must come out and be separate. You must put down the things that link you to them. You were made for greater things than the elemental things of the world. The world’s desires are limited and lacking and have always tried to hold you. But I have called you to know Me. In knowing Me you are lifted beyond the things of limit and lack. For nothing is impossible for Me, and I am greater in you than he that is in the world. Today, lift your voice and praise Me for the greater things. The things yet to come to you. For I will accomplish more than you can even ask or imagine, according to My power that is at work within you. ~God

Ezekiel 3:12 Then the Spirit took me up and I heard behind me a voice of a great rushing saying “blessed be the glory of the Lord from his place”.

1 Peter 1:21 Through Jesus you believe in God, who raised Him from the dead and glorified Him, and so your faith and hope are in God.

1 Cor 2:9 “No eye has seen, no ear has heard and no one’s heart has imagined all the things that God has prepared for those who love Him”

I want to encourage you to let go. I see your possessiveness. I am Creator and Sustainer, Author & Perfector, Beginning & End. I am Lord. Your anointing becomes contaminated when you try to control. You say of things “This is mine” “My marriage” “My ministry” “My friends” “My church” “My house” “My life”. When you say “this thing is mine” you are saying that you are in control of its growth and its behavior and you limit and confine it to what you can do with it. But I, The Lord, have plans to prosper you; plans to give you a hope and a future, not to harm you, I will enlarge your territory as you release and recognize that I am in control. I want to peel away this control you use to protect yourself from others. When you allow others to be free around you, even in their ugliness and sin, you will experience perfect love. I want you to know perfect love and to show this to others. Perfect love gives it doesn’t have to take or require anything of others. ~ Jesus

I see you on the shore of your struggle. You have been so battered by the waves of life. You set out to sail upon the water and make your way in the world. Even after you met Me, you continued swimming in your own strength to prove to the world who you had become. If they agreed, then perhaps, you thought, it would be true. So you set out to serve, “because the least of these is the greatest”, you said to your unbelieving heart. O sons of men, how long will you turn my honor into shame? How long will you love what is of no use, and run after lies?  Ask of Me, and I will turn your eyes from looking at what is worthless;  and give you life in My ways. When you repent and rest, I will give you revelation. Rest and receive revelation. I will teach you to do My will and lead you on level ground.

John 6:29 Jesus answered, “The work of God is this: To believe in the One He has sent.”

John 14:26 But the Counselor, the Holy Spirit—the Father will send Him in My name—will teach you all things and remind you of everything I have told you.

The way of mercy is mysterious. She is difficult for your flesh to comprehend. Mercy is My way. I desire to see her growing in you. So many desire to see justice and take matters into their own hands and hearts. You are to be to Me as a weaned child with his mother. He doesn’t concern himself with matters too great for him, but has stilled and quieted himself and walks safely beside her. Mercy triumphs over judgement. Humble yourself under My hand and in due time I will lift you up. I AM the One who made the winds and the seas, and they still know My voice. Remember how you have fallen and how I have continually restored you. My grace is sufficient for you, and My grace is sufficient for others.

Isaiah 53:5 (ICB) But he was wounded for the wrong things we did. He was crushed for the evil things we did. The punishment, which made us well, was given to him. And we are healed because of his wounds.

2 Samuel 18:33 The king was deeply moved and went up to the gate chamber and wept. As he walked, he cried, “My son Absalom! My son, my son Absalom! If only I had died instead of you, Absalom, my son, my son!”

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.

The old things are passing away in your life. Behold newness. I am calling you out of darkness and into light. You have been hiding in a shady place with the god you made up in your mind. The god who feeds you grapes and honeysuckles and laughs as you practice the pretension of religion. But you have grown and have recognized that there is more to Me. I see that you have chosen to walk out into the blazing light, to truly appraise your past, and face your future, even though the ground is hot and the sun burns your skin. You will soon rejoice over the amazing plans I have planned for you. I will reward your courage and faith with hope and a future. I am very pleased with you. I have a city prepared for you. ~Jesus

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.

Do you realize that I want you to know who you are? Do you understand that My desire is for you to believe My word to you? I have said that you are Mine. My servant, My friend, My child. I have given you permission through My Son, to enter My Presence and make your requests. The Devil is a liar and he fears for you to know who you are, because when you know, you will begin to destroy his works. I have given you authority over all the power of the enemy and nothing by any means shall harm you. Do not say, that you are not worthy, do not say that you are unable. The blood of Jesus speaks loudly for your value. I have chosen you. You are to know and believe that I am God. Nothing is impossible for Me. I am able to do immeasurably more than you can even ask or imagine. I am causing you to know the truth, to embrace the way and to live the life.
