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 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.’

1 Peter 5:5-7 All of you, clothe yourselves with humility toward one another, because, ‘God opposes the proud but shows favor to the humble.’ Humble yourselves, therefore, under God’s might hand, that He may lift you up in due time. Cast all you anxiety on Him for He cares for you.

Isaiah 59:19 From the west, people will fear the name of the Lord, and from the rising of the sun, they will revere His glory. For He will come like a pent-up flood that the breath of the Lord drives along.

Philippians 3:14        I pursue as my goal the prize promised by God’s heavenly call in Christ Jesus.

              I see some running through circumstances and hurdles. They have the end in sight and they put all their effort into completing their goals. But when they reach those goals and navigate through their circumstances and over the hurdles, their world turns over and the race begins again. It is the same race with different circumstances and hurdles. But some of My children have learned that they will not reach the end on Earth’s side. They have their eyes set on the things above and are learning to pace themselves to run the race with perseverance. Instead of competing to earn earth’s rewards, they understand they are not of this world. They have developed a strategy of spending time with Me. Living for Me is their goal. They have learned to come and take the living water from Me, to sit in My Presence and allow Me to love them. I supply all of there needs as they seek first My Kingdom.  I set before you this choice again today. Choose life that you may live.

Philippians 3:7 But everything that was gain to me, I have considered loss because of Christ. More than that, I also consider everything to be a loss in view of the surpassing value of knowing Christ Jesus, my Lord. 

Philippians 4:6 Don’t worry about anything, but in everything, through prayer and petition with thanksgiving, let your requests be made known to God. And the peace of God which surpasses every thought, will guard your hearts and minds in Christ Jesus.

I see your striving and worry and strategic planning to fix what you don’t even understand. My peace is better than your understanding. My peace works faster than your planning and striving. I have watched confusion come and grip your mind and I have heard your prayer for peace. I say to you: I love you just the way you are. Your justification is not your responsibility. I am at work in you. I work at My Own pace. I don’t need to hurry. I want you to set aside worry and fears and take in a deep breath of trust in Me. I know you are not perfect and have cracks that still need mending. They do not frighten or turn me away from you. Your weaknesses draw Me closer to you. I delight to show Myself strong for you. My grace is enough for you. Take My grace and know that I AM peace that passes all understanding.

Philippians 4:7 And the peace of God which passes all understanding, will keep your hearts and minds through Christ Jesus.

Romans 14:17 For the kingdom of God is not meat and drink; but righteousness and peace, and joy in the Holy Ghost.

ocean life 10

I am aware of everything that touches you. I go before you and I am behind you. I have hemmed you in. I am aware of your feelings and thoughts even before you think them. I know that you feel cramped and even crushed by your circumstances. But I have placed you here so that you can learn how to navigate among the structures of earth and man. So that you can learn that you are in the world but not of it. So that you can learn how to humble yourself under My mighty hand so that in the right time I can lift you up. I’ve not called you to rebel but to surrender to Me, and to receive Me in every place that you find yourself.  As you receive Me in your circumstances, you will come to know the peace that passes all understanding. In My peace, in Your circumstances the new creation, of you and My Son, will grow and will outgrow your circumstances and have to move to a larger place. Don’t despise your brokenness, remember it is beautiful to Me. ~God

Romans 15:13 May the God of hope fill you with all joy and peace in believing, so that you may abound in hope by the power of the Holy Spirit.

Philippians 1:6 Being confident of this very thing, that He which hath begun a good work in you will perform it until the day of Jesus Christ.

Colossians 3:2 Set your minds on what is above, not on what is on the earth.
