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.

There are levels of faith and as My child you are in a faith training course. The first level is the Mustard Seed level. In this level, there is a hope that I Am and that I reward those who seek Me. Faith operates here by asking of Me, in asking, the seed is planted.  The next level you become a leaning tree, leaning on Me and not your own understanding. Faith operates here by leaning on Me to stand.  As you come to stand, you begin to believe that I Am able. The next level is knowing that even though things look dead, I am able to bring them to life. Here you receive in your spirit. Faith operates here by speaking out and praising Me. I Am the God of the impossible. The next level is partaking of the fruit of your lips. Fruit born through  what you received from My Spirit, as you believed that I Am and that I reward those who seek Me.  Taste and see that I Am good. Then the cycle begins again, for you are to bear much fruit for Me.
