I have given you keys to unlock a door of hope in your valley. All creation cries out for you to come through, to be birthed, to be brought back to life. My faithful banner over you is love. I am sending a high tide of My grace, so that you may come through completely. You better believe that the deceitfulness of sin can carry you away from the things I have planned for you, but I have called you to carry the Sword and to cut through completely your connection to the world. I am going to kindle a fire in you, that will convince you to turn all of your affections to Me. My grace is sufficient. My grace is sufficient. My grace is sufficient.

2 Corinthians 12:9 But He said to me, “My grace is sufficient for you, for power is perfected in weakness.” Therefore, I will most gladly boast all the more about my weaknesses, so that Christ’s power may reside in me.

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.

Everything you have lost has been taken into account. I am your Redeemer. I hold your tears close to My heart. There is power in your tears. They will turn to fat, golden raindrops and will nourish your future. Your tears are to you as a woman’s water breaking before her delivery. Your time of delivery has come and I am calling you to begin to push. You have suffered but you will see satisfaction. From your pain and sacrifice you will help others. You will see your future and will forget the anguish of your labor. For I suffered and sacrificed to make you righteous. I have ransomed you. I have redeemed you. And because of My blood, I am restoring and repaying what was lost to you. Your redeemer lives! And be sure that all things work for good for you, because you are called to My purposes.

Isaiah 53:11 He shall see of the travail of His soul, and shall be satisfied: by His knowledge shall my righteous servant justify many; for He shall bear their iniquities.

John 16:21 When a woman is in labor she has pain because her time has come. But when she has given birth to a child, she no longer remembers the suffering because of the joy that a person has been born into the world.

Psalm 56:8 You Yourself have recorded my wanderings. Put my tears in Your bottle. Are they not in Your records?

Isaiah 41:13 For I, Yahweh your God, hold your hand and say to you: “Do not fear, I will help you.”

I want you to look at My people the way I have looked at you. I want you to love them the way I have loved you. They are not projects. They are not numbers that reveal your importance. They are Mine. They have My eyes and My heart beats within them.  Do you love Me? Feed My sheep. Give Me a drink of water!  I have clothed you in righteousness and shod your feet with the gospel of peace. My Holy Spirit has poured out My love in your heart. You have everything you need to abound in good work for My Grace is sufficient for you. And remember it is not you working, but I work in you, both to will and to do according to My good pleasure. When your eyes can see the need of the people as bigger than your need to give, then you will be on a mission. If your mission for Me is bigger, then it is your god.~Jesus

2 Corinthians 9:8 And God is able to make every grace overflow to you, so that in every way, always having everything you need, you may excel in every good work.

John 4:10 Jesus answered, “If you knew the gift of God, and who is saying to you, ‘Give Me a drink,’ you would ask Him, and He would give you living water.”

1 Corinthians 13 If I speak human or angelic languages but do not have love, I am a sounding gong or a clanging cymbal. If I have the gift of prophecy and understand all mysteries and all knowledge, and if I have all faith so that I can move mountains but do not have love, I am nothing. And if I donate all my goods to feed the poor,
and if I give my body in order to boast but do not have love, I gain nothing.

There is a great force of faith released when you are resting in Me. Your faith moves Me. When you grow satisfied in Me and cease your struggles, you will witness My Glory. Unless I build the house, those who labor, labor in vain.  I will help you. I know your nature and your desires. I created you. I will give you grace to grasp onto Me and relinquish yourself. I will give you eyes to see that you are very small and a heart to know that My love for you is very big. It is in this standing, this under-Me-standing, that you will see My face. As you come under Me, I will give to you of My Spirit of wisdom, knowledge, might and an added measure of the Spirit of the fear of the Lord.

Isaiah 11:1-3  Then a shoot will grow from the stump of Jesse,
and a branch from his roots will bear fruit. The Spirit of the Lord will rest on Him—
a Spirit of wisdom and understanding, a Spirit of counsel and strength,
a Spirit of knowledge and of the fear of the Lord. His delight will be in the fear of the Lord.
