half light (1 of 1)-2

I am bringing you into wholeness and am calling you to minister from your broken places. I am not pleased by any religious spirit. So often broken hearts hide behind a religious spirit. A religious spirit tells you to present yourself as healed and holy and will try to convince you that because of your service and efforts that you are healed and holy. Until you are aware of being broken you will not be healed. A tree is known by its fruit. Your heart feels safe behind a religious spirit, hiding under good works. But I know your heart and see your broken life. I want you to look and know the truth of where you are. To acknowledge to yourself that you are broken and in need of My healing. I want you to recognize that you can’t make it right and lean into Me in your need. As you come into revelation of where you are, then I can begin to lead you beyond, to redemption and restoration. Don’t despise your brokenness. When I see it, I see something that is truly of worth. A beauty that believes in Me and knows that I work all things together for good.~ Jesus your Redeemer and Friend

1 Peter 2:9 But you are a chosen people, a royal priesthood, a holy nation, God’s special possession, that you may declare the praises of Him who called you out of darkness into wonderful light.

John 3:21 But whoever lives by the truth comes into the light, so that it may be seen plainly that what they have done has been done in the sight of God.

Psalm 51:17 My sacrifice, O God, is a broken spirit; a broken and contrite heart you, God, will not despise.

Be careful to surrender daily to Me. I am in your surrender. As you release your own efforts and worries and learn to rely on My Strength you will come to know that I AM FOR YOU!  It is dangerous for you to operate in your own strength because your enemy prowls around like a lion seeking whom he may devour. But I am the Good Shepherd and have laid down My life to protect you. In your surrender you come under My protection. The blood I shed speaks over you. You are My sheep and know My voice. You will not recognize the voice of a stranger. Faith, hope and love remain, but the love speaks the loudest and it never fails. It is patient and kind. It does not envy or boast or insist on having its own way. This is how you will recognize who My children are, because everyone who loves is born of Me.  I AM FOR YOU and no weapon formed against you shall prosper and you will refute every tongue that rises against you. This is your heritage as My servant, your vindication from Me. After the shots are fired and the foundations laid bare, and you think you have won, the GREATEST battle begins. It is the battle to love and forgive and live again!

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

Isaiah 43:18 Forget the former things; do not dwell in the past.

Romans 12:21 Be not overcome of evil, but overcome evil with good.

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.”
