O beautiful broken one. I hold you and gaze at the glow of My glory that I see emanating from the seed of hope within you. This treasure within you is to be seen. My will for you is Broken Free. Be still and know. You work so diligently to redo the things I have undone in you. You restore and repair and rebuild, so that you may remain whole and unbroken but this is not yet My Way. My Way is Broken Free. Don’t despise your brokenness. I want you to begin to see the beauty of it instead and to know that in brokenness the seed of hope within you has room to grow.

2 Corinthians 4:6,7 For God, who said, “Let light shine out of darkness,” has shone in our hearts to give the light of the knowledge of God’s glory in the face of Jesus Christ. Now we have this treasure in clay jars, so that this extraordinary power may be from God and not us.

1 Corinthians 15:13 (ceb) It’s necessary for this rotting body to be clothed with what can’t decay, and for the body that is dying to be clothed in what can’t die.

2 Corinthians 4:16 Therefore we do not give up. Even though our outer person is being destroyed, our inner person is being renewed day by day.

Unbelief is a substance. It will cover you, but it will not go into your belly and meet your needs. Believing is a substance that is able to fill you; for I am the bread of life. Doubt is when you see both unbelief and belief and won’t decide which to take. Don’t waver between two opinions. Doubt makes you a double minded person, who is unstable, and wavering. Decide today to believe in Me. Taste and see that I am good. I Am the God of More Than Enough! Come to Me, come to My throne. You think you have nothing to bring Me, but I see your longing and the hunger of your soul. Bring these to Me for they are of great worth in My sight. Ask Me to fill you and to satisfy you. Blessed are the poor in spirit for the kingdom of heaven is theirs.

Hebrews 4:7 Today if you hear His voice, do not harden your hearts.

John 16:24 Until now you have asked for nothing in My name. Ask and you will receive, so that your joy may be complete.

I have connected you directly to heaven through My indwelling Spirit. It is as a beam that cuts through the swirling clamor. This allows you to receive the things you need. I am in you, and you are in Me. Today, I want to release contentment to you. As you pray, focus on contentment coming down into your being. Contentment is a state of being where you are satisfied together with Me in our dwelling. It is the happy home you long for in this life. Seek this state of being with Me before you move forward. There is great gain in godliness with contentment. As you seek first My kingdom, other things added will bless you and not take the life out of you. ~Jesus

Luke 8:18 So take care how you listen; for whoever has, to him more shall be given; and whoever does not have, even what he thinks he has shall be taken away from him.

1 Timothy 6:6 But godliness actually is a means of great gain when accompanied by contentment.

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”

I bring you to the place at the end of yourself. The place where you don’t know what to do. I bring you here and ask you to wait for a time. You remind Me of My caterpillars squirming before I wrap them in their silks. I feel your desire to flee and your overwhelming desire to JUST DO something, but I am asking you to be still. I want you to understand that you do not have the power to do what needs doing. You can’t change these circumstances. I have called you to be still. Being still requires great faith. I ask you, here in your stillness, “have you placed your hope in Me?” Hope in Me is beyond what you can do and know and see. As you are waiting here there are things I have to teach you. One thing for you to learn- is that nothing in all creation can separate you from My love. Another thing- is that in your union with My Son, you will rise above all circumstances. Nothing can keep you down because there is no greater power than Jesus. In your waiting, you, just like My caterpillars, are being transformed. Do you believe Me for things greater than you can hear or see or that your mind can conceive? These greater things, are the things I have for you! God

Romans 8:10,11 But if Christ is in you, then even though your body is subject to death because of sin, the Spirit gives life because of righteousness. And if the Spirit of Him who raised Jesus from the dead is living in you, He who raised Christ from the dead will also give life to your mortal bodies because of His Spirit who lives in you.

Romans 8:18 I consider that our present sufferings are not worth comparing with the glory that will be revealed in us.

Romans 8:24 For in this hope we were saved. But hope that is seen is no hope at all. Who hopes for what they already have?

Romans 8:37-38 No, in all these things we are more than conquerors through Him who loved us. For I am convinced that neither death nor life, neither angels nor demons, neither the present nor the future, nor any powers, neither height nor depth, nor anything else in all creation, will be able to separate us from the love of God that is in Christ Jesus our Lord!

2 Cor 3:18 And we all, who with unveiled faces contemplate the Lord’s glory, are being transformed into His image with ever increasing glory, which comes from the Lord, who is the Spirit.

2 Cor 3:17 Now the Lord is the Spirit, and where the Spirit of the Lord is, there is freedom.

I see you seeking out others thinking they will be a strength to you. You begin to idolize them and follow hard after them in a way that you should only follow Me. When I allow you to see their weaknesses and faults you are broken and hurt. You come up fighting and judging with blame and accusations. Anytime you lay on a foundation of sand it will be washed out from under you. I am your foundation. I am a Rock that withstands the storms. After you confess your idolatry and after the pain of your disappointment recedes, after the death of a thing, new life emerges. I will enable you to love what IS not what you thought should be. And through this Christ-Like love a transformation occurs because LOVE never fails. Don’t give up when all feels lost because in this place of winter, this place of disappointment, at the end of your hopes is where I do My greatest works! And you will reap a harvest if you do not give up! ~ God

John 11:25 Jesus said unto her, I am the resurrection and the life: he that believeth in Me, though he were dead, yet shall live.

Psalm 55:22 Cast thy burden upon the Lord, and he shall sustain thee: He shall never suffer the righteous to be moved.

Hebrews 10:23 Let us hold unswervingly to the hope we profess, for He who promised is faithful.

John 12:24 Very truly I tell you, unless a kernel of wheat falls to the ground and dies, it remains only a single seed. But if it dies, it produces many seeds.

1 Samuel 2:2 There is no one holy like the Lord; there is no one besides you; there is no ROCK like our God.

Lean not on your own understanding. In all your ways acknowledge Me and I will direct your paths. Listen only to My voice. You will recognize My voice because of My love. I am kind and gentle and forgiving. I won’t condemn or belittle you. The voices of strangers seek to destroy you. I am teaching you not to listen to the strange voices you hear. I don’t want you to seek strength from deceitful authority, whose purposes are only to further their own agendas and plans. You know what love is because I showed you when I laid down My life for you. I am calling you to look to My love for you and to stop looking to imperfect people. As you come to know My love, I ask you to forgive those who have disappointed you and have misled you. They aren’t even aware sometimes of what they are doing, because they have been hurt as well. I call you to let go of your bitterness and resentment and to love those who hurt you and to do good to those who persecute you. As you do, you will know the perfect love that casts out fear and you will no longer fear, because you are being made perfect in Me.

1 John 4:1 Dear friends, do not believe every spirit, but test the spirits to see whether they are from God, because many false prophets have gone out into the world.

1 John 4 16-19 God is love. Whoever lives in love lives in God, and God in them. This is how love is made complete among us so that we have confidence on the day of judgment: In this world we are like Jesus. There is no fear in love. But perfect love drives out fear, because fear has to do with punishment. The one who fears is not made perfect in love. We love because he first loved us.

Romans 8:37 Nay, in all things, we are more than conquerors through Him that loved us.

Hebrews 3:12,13 Take heed, brothers, lest there be in any of you an evil heart of unbelief, in departing from the living God. But exhort one another daily, while it is called Today; lest any of you be hardened through the deceitfulness of sin.

Isaiah 41:10 Fear thou not; for I am with thee; be not dismayed; for I am thy God: I will strengthen thee; yea, I will help thee; yea, I will uphold thee with right hand of My righteousness.
