I am your Father who has given you gifts and a calling. I have a desire to see you walking in them.  It is My joy to bring you up into maturity. You are delightful to Me. Your spirit is strong and wise, but there are some places in your soul where you are still a child. These places were places taken early by sin and abuse, they have been locked away and unable to learn and grow. I have redeemed you, all of you. I have been bringing you through training and teaching your childish places to learn to behave. I am calling them up so that you can contain a fuller measure of My Spirit within you. Don’t despise My discipline, for I discipline the one I love, the one I delight in.~God

Hebrews 12:6 for the Lord disciplines the one He loves and punishes every son He receives.

Proverbs 13:18 Poverty and disgrace come to those who ignore discipline, but the one who accepts correction will be honored.

half light (1 of 1)-2

You have struggled in your pride to make your own way, even to the point of death, you have refused Me. I stand here behind the lies you have believed and My heart longs to hold you and gather you in My arms.  Your quest to know and to prove there is a way without Me is an empty way of life that you have inherited from your earthly fathers.  It is time for you to humble yourself and call out to Me. I am releasing over you a spirit of faith, to deliver you out of the darkness and into a Marvelous Light.

I have redeemed you from your empty way of life inherited from your fathers, through the blood of Jesus, My Son. As you become united with Him, His blood qualifies you to share in His inheritance.   His inheritance is a hope and a future, a certain resurrection.  But, without faith it is impossible to please Me, for those who come to Me must believe that I am and that I reward those who seek Me.  Will you come?  I know that it is difficult for you to say that you can’t make it on your own, but that’s all it takes.  Will you come and take My Provision and let go of your struggle? ~God~

James 4:10 Humble yourself in the sight of the Lord, and He will lift you up.

1 Peter 1:18-19 For you know that you were redeemed from your empty way of life inherited from the fathers, not with perishable things like silver or gold, but with the precious blood of Christ. 

1 Peter 1:8-9 You love Him, though you have not seen Him. And though not seeing Him now, you believe in Him and rejoice with inexpressible and glorious joy, because you are receiving the goal of you faith, the salvation of your souls.
