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.

love never fails 2

The clamor of men is a swirling black smoke covering the nations. I am God, all powerful in My restraint, waiting for the fulfillment of My words. I am above, seated on My throne, but I am also sealed in your heart. This connection is as a white beam of light, revealing you as Mine to the world. This beam is unbroken and cuts through the smoke and clamor. As you unite with others who are mine, this light becomes brighter and begins to take the form of My Bride. I Am the head of the church, your bridegroom. Those who are wise will shine like the brightness of the heavens and those who lead many to righteousness like the stars for ever and ever. Put your hope in Me for My word is certain.

Psalm 33:20-22 My soul waits in hope for the Lord; He is my help and my shield. My heart rejoices in Him, because I trust in His holy name. Let Your unfailing love be upon us, O Lord, even as we put our hope in You.

Psalm 67:1-2 God be gracious to us and bless us, and make His face shine upon us; That Your way be known on the earth, Your salvation among all the nations.

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”

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.
