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.

Flesh and blood cannot inherit the kingdom of God. Only those who have a union with My Spirit will inherit My kingdom. So many search the scriptures and learn of Me. They are content knowing of Me, but more is required for everlasting life. I stand at the door of hearts and knock. Those who hear Me and invite Me in are the ones who will know everlasting life. You have heard and invited Me in to your house. I have come to dine with you, and you with Me. I want you to seek Life from this place where My spirit and your spirit are united; this place of communion with My indwelling Presence. It is here, dining with Me, that you will find nourishment. I will provide strength and preserve you. It is here, you will find your purpose, because united here, we break the bread and give it to feed My family.

John 6:57 Just as the living Father sent Me and I live because of the Father, so the one who feeds on Me will live because of Me.

Revelation 3:20 Here I am! I stand at the door and knock. If anyone hears My voice and opens the door, I will come in and eat that person and they with Me.

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”

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 want you to turn away from what you can do for Me. I want you to turn to the understanding that I Am! I know you think that you know what’s best for you, and you fear surrendering to Me. You want to know and to understand, but, your rest comes from TRUSTING ME, even when you don’t know or understand. I know that those in your past, who were supposed to be FOR you, have disappointed you, but I am not those people. I am Your Creator. Your Heavenly Father. I know you are tired of waiting and have grown weary in the process. I am calling you today to be careful for nothing, but to bring your requests to Me, to trust Me with them. As you give Me your requests, I will give you peace that passes understanding. I am asking you to believe that I know what is best for you. I am the Maker of miracles and I allow you to see them only when you realize that it is not you making them. For you are human and I am supernatural. Be still and know that I am God.

Hebrews 10:35,36 Cast not away, therefore, your confidence, which hath great reward. For you have need of patience, that, after you have done the will of God, you might receive the promise.

Philippians 4:6,7 Don’t worry about anything, but in everything, through prayer and petition, with thanksgiving, let your requests be known to God, and the peace of God, which surpasses every thought, will guard your hearts and minds in Christ Jesus.

Titus 3:5,6 Not by works of righteousness which we have done, but according to His mercy He saved us, by the washing of regeneration, and renewing of the Holy Ghost: Which He shed on us abundantly through Jesus Christ our savior.

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.

I bring you to the place at the end of yourself. The place where you don’t know what to do. I bring you here and ask you to wait for a time. You remind Me of My caterpillars squirming before I wrap them in their silks. I feel your desire to flee and your overwhelming desire to JUST DO something, but I am asking you to be still.  I want you to understand that you do not have the power to do what needs doing. You can’t change these circumstances.  I have called you to be still. Being still requires great faith. I ask you, here in your stillness, “have you placed your hope in Me?”  Hope in Me is beyond what you can do and know and see. As you are waiting here there are things I have to teach you. One thing for you to learn- is that nothing in all creation can separate you from My love. Another thing- is that in your union with My Son, you will rise above all circumstances. Nothing can keep you down because there is no greater power than Jesus. In your waiting, you, just like My caterpillars, are being transformed. Do you believe Me for things greater than you can hear or see or that your mind can conceive? These greater things, are the things I have for you! God

Romans 8:10,11 But if Christ is in you, then even though your body is subject to death because of sin, the Spirit gives life because of righteousness. And if the Spirit of Him who raised Jesus from the dead is living in you, He who raised Christ from the dead will also give life to your mortal bodies because of His Spirit who lives in you.

Romans 8:18 I consider that our present sufferings are not worth comparing with the glory that will be revealed in us.

Romans 8:24 For in this hope we were saved. But hope that is seen is no hope at all. Who hopes for what they already have?

Romans 8:37-38 No, in all these things we are more than conquerors through Him who loved us. For I am convinced that neither death nor life, neither angels nor demons, neither the present nor the future, nor any powers, neither height nor depth, nor anything else in all creation, will be able to separate us from the love of God that is in Christ Jesus our Lord!

2 Cor 3:18 And we all, who with unveiled faces contemplate the Lord’s glory, are being transformed into His image with ever increasing glory, which comes from the Lord, who is the Spirit.

2 Cor 3:17 Now the Lord is the Spirit, and where the Spirit of the Lord is, there is freedom.
