I have watched you change your spots to match the colors of your surroundings. To be like another person, to be what you think they approve. I have seen how you have grown and the lack of approval you have experienced. Those you looked to, hadn’t been approved either. They had none to give. There have been those who have approved you briefly, but their purposes were not genuine. So many have needed you to need them.  I did not intend for life to be this way. But I have provided truth for you.  You have My approval. I have set My love over your heart as a seal. Sanctify Me as Lord in your heart. I want you to turn from others and into Me.  Allow Me to be the One who approves you.  It is My desire that you be conformed to My likeness, to live and walk as I did.  You carry My very Presence within you! I work in you and will direct you to understand that you are complete in Me.

Romans 12:2 Do not conform to the pattern of this world, but be transformed by the renewing of your mind. Then you will be able to test and approve what God’s will is—his good, pleasing and perfect will.

Colossians 2:9-10 For in Him dwells all the fullness of the Godhead bodily;  and you are complete in Him, who is the head of all principality and power.

I want to speak to the unbelief in your heart today and remind you that NOTHING is too difficult for Me. I am working miracles in your life. You will soon see manifestations of My glory in those situations you have deemed hopeless. You will behold My faithfulness in those things that you doubt will ever be good. I work all things together for good for those who are Mine. Get up now and believe for you will see My goodness in the land of the living. Stand up behind Me and praise Me. I am moving in front of you and goodness and mercy are following you. ~God

Prayer “O King of Glory, enter in! Thank You that You enter into our praise. You are great and mighty and nothing is too difficult for you. Thank You that You command victories for those who belong to You. Thank You for the struggles, that you cause to bring good for us. And thank You for the grace that enables us to see You working. Help us believe, because we do believe! I pray in Jesus’ Mighty Name! Amen”

Luke 1:37 Nothing is impossible for God!

Psalm 98:1 Sing to the Lord for He has done marvelous things!

Psalm 89:15 Blessed are those who have learned to acclaim You.

I want to encourage you to let go. I see your possessiveness. I am Creator and Sustainer, Author & Perfector, Beginning & End. I am Lord. Your anointing becomes contaminated when you try to control. You say of things “This is mine” “My marriage” “My ministry” “My friends” “My church” “My house” “My life”. When you say “this thing is mine” you are saying that you are in control of its growth and its behavior and you limit and confine it to what you can do with it. But I, The Lord, have plans to prosper you; plans to give you a hope and a future, not to harm you, I will enlarge your territory as you release and recognize that I am in control. I want to peel away this control you use to protect yourself from others. When you allow others to be free around you, even in their ugliness and sin, you will experience perfect love. I want you to know perfect love and to show this to others. Perfect love gives it doesn’t have to take or require anything of others. ~ Jesus
