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.”

John 3:16 “For God loved the world in this way: He gave His One and Only Son, so that everyone who believes in Him will not perish but have eternal life.”

Philippians 3:14        I pursue as my goal the prize promised by God’s heavenly call in Christ Jesus.

              I see some running through circumstances and hurdles. They have the end in sight and they put all their effort into completing their goals. But when they reach those goals and navigate through their circumstances and over the hurdles, their world turns over and the race begins again. It is the same race with different circumstances and hurdles. But some of My children have learned that they will not reach the end on Earth’s side. They have their eyes set on the things above and are learning to pace themselves to run the race with perseverance. Instead of competing to earn earth’s rewards, they understand they are not of this world. They have developed a strategy of spending time with Me. Living for Me is their goal. They have learned to come and take the living water from Me, to sit in My Presence and allow Me to love them. I supply all of there needs as they seek first My Kingdom.  I set before you this choice again today. Choose life that you may live.

Philippians 3:7 But everything that was gain to me, I have considered loss because of Christ. More than that, I also consider everything to be a loss in view of the surpassing value of knowing Christ Jesus, my Lord. 

Philippians 4:6 Don’t worry about anything, but in everything, through prayer and petition with thanksgiving, let your requests be made known to God. And the peace of God which surpasses every thought, will guard your hearts and minds in Christ Jesus.

flowers (1 of 2)

I have given you keys to unlock a door of hope in your valley. All creation cries out for you to come through, to be birthed, to be brought back to life. My faithful banner over you is love. I am sending a high tide of My grace, so that you may come through completely. You better believe that the deceitfulness of sin can carry you away from the things I have planned for you, but I have called you to carry the Sword and to cut through completely your connection to the world. I am going to kindle a fire in you, that will convince you to turn all of your affections to Me. My grace is sufficient. My grace is sufficient. My grace is sufficient.

2 Corinthians 12:9 But He said to me, “My grace is sufficient for you, for power is perfected in weakness.” Therefore, I will most gladly boast all the more about my weaknesses, so that Christ’s power may reside in me.

There are things in you that lie below the surface. They are content to operate undetected. They cause you to feel hostility to those who want to expose them. They say: “Let me alone” “Let me be”!  They are deceitful and deceive your heart and cause you to withdraw from anyone who catches a glimpse of them.  I HAVE designated the destroyer to remove them from you. I am raising My Mighty Fist against the strongholds of pride in you. I say to that proud serpent. Loosen your grip..Let go of your hold! For this one is Mine! With the shattering strength of My Sacrifice, I am resetting you into the revelation of My Salvation. You will no longer say,  “my own hand has done this, I have worked so hard.”  For you will know that I have delivered you and that I will continue to deliver you. I will help you. Stand still and see the deliverance I bring you because you have taken refuge in Me. Your salvation is from Me. ~Jesus

Jeremiah 6:16 Stand by the roadways and look. Ask about the ancient paths: Which is the way to what is good? Then take it and find rest for yourselves.

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 have often felt your hurt, from disappointments where you have expected things and people fail you.  But I have also seen their desire to love you. The thing that has come between you is your expectations. But I want you to put your hope in Me, and to be able to love regardless. I am teaching you to let your expectations be known and agreed upon, and even then you will often be let down by people. I desire for you to be quick to listen, slow to speak and especially slow to become angry. How can you love your enemies, if you can’t love your friends?  Every person and thing will disappoint you. I have made you in such a way, that only I can satisfy you. Don’t be under obligation, but be under My direction, and love as I have loved you. Trust in Me with all your heart and lean not on what you think should be. Acknowledge Me and I will straighten and direct your path.

Psalm 62:5 For God alone, O my soul, wait in silence, for my hope is from Him.

Romans 13:8 Do not owe anyone anything, except to love one another, for the one who loves another has fulfilled the law.

There is a struggle that I have placed in you. I have also given you the ability to break free through this struggle.  During this process you will question and not understand, because this is a supernatural miracle. I am asking you today to trust Me. I am good towards you. My plans are to give you hope. I am bringing you to life through My Spirit dwelling in you. You are experiencing a transformation so that you may be glorified in My Son. Lean on My Spirit within you for He knows what you need. Know that all things work together for your good.  I will complete this work I have started in you. Don’t be afraid when you can’t see, because nothing can separate you from Me! ~God

Proverbs 3:5,6 Trust in the Lord with all your heart, and do not rely on your own understanding; think about Him in all your ways, and He will guide you on the right paths.

I am your lamp. I shine on your darkness. With Me, you can attack any barrier. I am for you. I am not against you. My plans are to take you beyond barriers and walls, beyond any hinderance. For you are My witness. I have chosen you so that You can know Me. I am pleased that you consider all things loss, compared to Me. I will show Myself strong for you, and reveal surpassing greatness to you. I will show you the power of My resurrection. I Am your God. Be still and know Me.

Be the first to do good. Do it because you love Me. I am willing that you set aside your pride and stubbornness and be the first to extend love and peace and kindness to others. You can begin this by speaking the things you believe for others out of your mouth. Thank Me for those things even before they come to pass. Begin to look for the new growth and will it forward in your faith. Love never fails. Do LOVE not for a return but because you believe in a city to come. Before you realize it, love will change you. You will love loving instead of love lacking. ~Jesus

Proverbs 18:20 From the fruit of his mouth a man’s stomach is satisfied; he is filled with the product of his lips.

Hebrews 13:12-14 Therefore Jesus also suffered outside the gate, so that He might sanctify the people by His own blood. Let us then go to Him outside the camp, bearing His disgrace. For we do not have an enduring city here; instead, we seek the one to come.

psalm 125seahorse

I have been upon the chambers of your being. I have watched you consider and make conclusions. I have watched you as you have come to understand the many changes you have made, provide no escape. I have watched you use your abilities, and even though you are strong and able, you have come to know ability will never deliver you. I have prepared this place for faith. This place where you see no option, no way through and no way out. It is as if you are facing the sea with a pursuing army behind you. I have prepared this place for My Glory. Be still, lift your eyes to Me, and know that I Am God.  Stand and see the deliverance I will bring you. Be encouraged in this place, for you are about to behold My power.~ God

The children of God walked through the sea on dry ground.

Hebrews 11:29 By faith the Israelites crossed the Red Sea as though they were on dry land.

Psalm 33:16 A king is not saved by a large army; a warrior will not be delivered by great strength. The horse is a false hope for safety; it provides no escape by its great power. 

Father, I stand and wait.  I stand in Your secret place. And I know You are here. I know that you have seen my doubts and fears, my many struggles through the years.   But I stand here. Nothing in my hands. I have no plans.  I feel Your Power here. I don’t know how but I feel Your strength. And I can stand. O I can stand and believe. I know that You ARE. I know that YOU ARE.  And You ARE ABLE. I know that I cannot be shaken because You surround me both now and forever.
