Come daily and surrender. Leave the worries of your heart at the doorstep and come inside in prayer with Me. I work everything out to its proper end. Watch that you don’t become conceited thinking that you know everything and are always right. My ways are higher and I see the end from its beginning. Don’t walk out of your flesh in fear by trying to control everything so that it won’t hurt you. As long as you are fearful you are available for hurt. When your fears are cast out by My perfect love you will know peace. For I will replace your fearfulness with My faithfulness. I will enable you to move beyond your hurts and love one another. Surrender and allow Me to control everything for nothing can harm you as long as you are in My care. ~ God

Galatians 5:6 What matters is faith working through love.

I will establish you and guard you from the evil one. Remember you are in Me and have overcome them because I am greater in you than he that is in the world. I have not given you a spirit of fear but of love and power and a sound mind. Since your youth they have attacked you-but they will not prevail. You have often made your back like the ground and allowed them to walk across you. But I say to you now “Stand up! Shake the dust off yourself!” I am making your foundation on the Rock in righteousness, giving you a firm place to stand. No weapon formed against you will prosper and you will refute every accusation raised against you. For you are My servant and your vindication is from Me.~God

Isaiah 52:23  Stand up, shake the dust off yourself! Take your seat, Jerusalem. Remove the bonds from your neck, captive Daughter Zion!

Psalm 129:2 Since my youth they have often attacked me, but they have not prevailed against me.

Exodus 33:21 The Lord said, “Here is a place near Me. You are to stand on the rock.”

A cleansing flood is coming. The latter rain.  I intend to turn your heart to Me and give you singleness of mind. I am blessing you. It will be different than what you had anticipated for My thoughts are above and I see the entirety of your purpose and life. I am giving you eyes to see what you have been given.  I have given you benefits.  I daily load you with benefits and My mercies are new every morning. As you recognize the things I’ve bestowed on you as coming from Me, you will no longer allow the enemy to whisk them away. As you look at circumstances I want your first thought to be “The Lord is blessing!” for I have told you that I have good planned and not harm. I intend to prosper you.  Listen to Me. Don’t follow your own stubborn desires or live according to your own ideas. I will subdue your enemies and feed you with the finest wheat and wild honey from the rock.

Psalm 81

What do you think it means where it says in My word, that if you give your goods away and even allow your body to be burned, but have not love, it profits you nothing? What do you think it means to “have not love”? I am telling you that I am love. Having love is knowing this. Having love is a relationship with Me. It isn’t manufacturing a service up to others, or even to Me. Having love is learning of My heart for you. Having love is learning of My sacrifice for you. Having love is believing what I say to you. I know how you work. I know how you serve Me. I have seen you give. But I have this against you, that you have left your first love. I am asking you to remember where you were. To take note of how desperately you needed Me. Remember how I forgave you and gave you love when you were unable to even lift your head. Remember and repent of your pride. Return your heart to it’s first love. Have My love. I am here and I am knocking at the door. Open up and have Me come in. I have chosen you as My witness. I want you to know and believe and understand that I am love. ~Jesus

Revelation 2:1-5 “These things says He who holds the seven stars in His right hand, who walks in the midst of the seven golden lampstands: 2 “I know your works, your labor, your patience, and that you cannot bear those who are evil. And you have tested those who say they are apostles and are not, and have found them liars; 3 and you have persevered and have patience, and have labored for My name’s sake and have not become weary. 4 Nevertheless I have this against you, that you have left your first love. 5 Remember therefore from where you have fallen; repent and do the first works, or else I will come to you quickly and remove your lampstand from its place—unless you repent.”

Today is a day of new beginnings! A restart. I am doing a new thing. I am providing a way out of confusion and turmoil. I am bringing you to spring of Living Water. I am supernatural. My ways are mysterious, but you can be sure of My faithfulness to you. I am asking you today to step out of confusion and worry and the turning over and over in your mind and to step into My Mystery. I am giving you peace here today. It may feel foreign to you, as you are more familiar with worry. You will find Me and come to understand that I offer rest for your soul. Step away from worry and into My arms. You can’t save people. I am the only Savior. You are only required to love.-God

John 7:38 “The one who believes in Me, as the Scripture has said, will have streams of living water flow from deep within him.”

I am calling you to come to Me. Come away with Me. Lay down your strategies and lay down your fears. I have accepted you. I want you to be with Me, to come and rest in the secret place of My strong hand. You are unable to secure yourself and your methods bring harm to you and to those around you. But I have provided a shelter in My Son. He is a strong tower around you because He has fought and won your battles. I know you are afraid and feel forsaken by those you thought were strong. But I have allowed these things so that you will learn to depend only on Me. So that you will come to the only One who can truly love you. Once you know true love, you will be able to give it back. To give it back freely, just as you received it. There is strength in the knowing of My Love. I will cover you with My feathers and under My wings you will find refuge. In knowing My Love you can find the courage to face the things that need changing in you. I am calling you to come to Me, just as you are! I am calling you to ask Me to be your strength, to be your wisdom, to be the One who is always for you. Because I am.~God

Romans 5:1 Therefore being justified by faith, we have peace with God through our Lord Jesus Christ.

There is life and glory after the death of a thing in your life. When you give up things that mean so much to you, things that have taken My place, you will grieve. Because setting aside falsehood feels like death. But I have called you to take up your cross and follow Me. I promise you life after death.  After you have surrendered and mourned your loss you will begin to experience My power at work bringing forth newness and hope. I want you to set aside your mistrust of Me and believe Me. The things you can hold in your hands are lies that will harm you. They can’t satisfy you. Only I can satisfy you, for you were made for Me. I don’t have plans to harm you. I have plans to give you a hope and a future.  ~Jesus

John 14:6 Jesus answered, “I am the way, the truth and the life.”

I am restoring to you the years the locusts have eaten. Open your mouth wide and receive the revelation. It is My pleasure to give you the kingdom. I am preparing you to become a catalyst who will deliver a unique remedy. You will be as a barrier breaker, one who crushes through walls and stands boldly before Me in intersession. You are a branch of peace, offering healing.  Your witness of Me will be as a billboard drawing in others to come and receive, to be carried along, in MY Current of Joy.

Luke 12:32 “Fear not, little flock.  For it is your Father’s good pleasure to give you the Kingdom.”

I see you so busy in your ways, doing things no one else will do, making sure that everything is in order and ready. You are worried about many things because of this. But only 1 thing is truly needed. I am able to do what needs done and I long to show Myself to you in this. But in order to see Me and receive, you have to be still and take time to KNOW Me. There is great meaning in silence and stillness, that you can’t find in rushing and fretting to get things done. I feel the anxiety in your belly and the fear of failing. Come to Me and take My yoke upon you. My yoke is easy and My burden is light. You also have a need to surrender and be willing to accept My life in you and My plans for you. I want you to trust even when My plans are so different from what you expected of your life.  I want to give you rest for your soul. There is a way that seems right, but it brings pain. You can know you are on the right path by the peace you feel in your belly, for I am good and will lead you to green pastures and by the still waters I will restore your soul.

Psalm 131:2 But I have calmed and quieted myself, I am like a weaned child with its mother; like a weaned child I am content.

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”
