I am calling you to a deeper walk with Me. As the bonds that have bound you are broken, you will grieve. As the people who you have so trusted disappoint you in their human-ness, you will be broken-hearted and know sorrow. But I am maturing you and bringing you to a place where your dependence is only on Me. When people forsake you, know that I will take you up. And I will give you perfect love that casts out fear. And I will heal your broken heart. My redeemed will return and come with singing and everlasting joy shall be upon their head. They will have gladness and joy for sorrow and mourning will flee. I am Spirit and where My Spirit is there is freedom. As you look and contemplate on Me you will be transformed into My likeness with ever-increasing Glory.

2 Corinthians 3:17,18 Now the Lord is the Spirit and where the Spirit of the Lord is, there is freedom. We all, with unveiled faces, are looking as in a mirror at the glory of the Lord and are being transformed into the same image from glory to glory, this is from the Lord who is the Spirit.

Psalm 27:10 Even if my father and mother abandon me, the Lord cares for me.

Psalm 27:13-14 I am certain that I will see the Lord’s goodness in the land of the living. Wait for the Lord; be strong and courageous. Wait for the Lord.

Deuteronomy 31:8 The Lord is the One who will go before you. He will be with you; He will not leave you or forsake you. Do not be afraid or discouraged.

I see you on the shore of your struggle. You have been so battered by the waves of life. You set out to sail upon the water and make your way in the world. Even after you met Me, you continued swimming in your own strength to prove to the world who you had become. If they agreed, then perhaps, you thought, it would be true. So you set out to serve, “because the least of these is the greatest”, you said to your unbelieving heart. O sons of men, how long will you turn my honor into shame? How long will you love what is of no use, and run after lies?  Ask of Me, and I will turn your eyes from looking at what is worthless;  and give you life in My ways. When you repent and rest, I will give you revelation. Rest and receive revelation. I will teach you to do My will and lead you on level ground.

John 6:29 Jesus answered, “The work of God is this: To believe in the One He has sent.”

John 14:26 But the Counselor, the Holy Spirit—the Father will send Him in My name—will teach you all things and remind you of everything I have told you.

Enter My Presence with thanksgiving! Shout triumphantly to Me in song.The enemy will come against you speaking defeat and discouragement. But I am greater in you than he who is in the world. I have given you weapons to use against him. I encourage you to take up the shield of faith and swing wide the sword of the Spirit. And start to speak out of your mouth thanksgiving for the things I have done for you. Thank Me for life. Thank Me for your home, your family, the knowledge you have of Me. Thank Me for anything that is good and excellent and worthy of praise. Close your eyes to defeat and discouragement. Your gratitude is an expression of your faith. Your faith makes Me smile. Your thanksgiving punches the devil in the mouth!

Psalm 96 Sing a new song to the Lord; sing to the Lord, all the earth. Sing to Yahweh, praise His name; proclaim His salvation from day to day. Declare His glory among the nations,
His wonderful works among all peoples.

Psalm 16:9 Therefore my heart is glad and my spirit rejoices; my body also rests securely.

Hebrews 11:6 Now without faith it is impossible to please God, for the one who draws near to Him must believe that He exists and rewards those who seek Him.

Revelation 7:12 saying: Amen! Blessing and glory and wisdom and thanksgiving and honor and power and strength be to our God forever and ever. Amen.

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.

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.
