"Follow the way of love and eagerly desire gifts of the Spirit, especially prophecy.
…the one who prophesies speaks to people for their strengthening, encouraging and comfort.”
1 Corinthians 14:1, 3
Do you know that I desired you?
That I waited for your arrival upon the earth all these years?
That I anticipated you?
…Don’t doubt this.
In your waiting, know that as you are in Me,
I am in it all, My sweet, sweet love.
My child, you are Mine and I love you beyond words… beyond measure.
…as you live with Me
and seek My face,
and follow My ways,
I have nothing but delight towards you.
… when you struggle, you have My full invitation to come.
As you slow down and live aware—intentionally, instead of just doing the “tread mill” tasks that are before you each day—you will begin to see behind the scenes.
The oil of gladness comes from My anointing.
And, it’s true, My one,
My anointing breaks the yoke.
It breaks off fear.
It soothes and nourishes you—spirit, soul, and body.
My anointing makes you beautiful.
It empowers you to step out and risk… because fear cannot coexist with it.
Whatever flows from your life will be what other people get when they’re around you.
If My refreshing living water, My cleansing blood, My redeeming grace, My healing anointing oil, and My truth and mercy flow from your life, those around you will experience these things.
When you seek Me, and wait upon Me, you will be:
aligned in all things
strong and courageous in the midst of whatever you are facing
amazed at the insight, revelation, and understanding that opens up to you
When I tell you to live by faith and not by sight it’s not just for a spiritual principle of truth.
…if you focus on “sight,” all you will see is what’s in your line of vision.
All you’ll be able to see is what is before you.
But, if you focus on Me and living by faith, you will see beyond what is.
My child, do you think that I don’t have this?
Be aware and tuned in. The enemy wants you to become discouraged.
…but you can’t fail in Me.
It’s not possible to be disappointed when your attention is fixed
on the King of glory, the One who created the ends of the earth and
holds all things in the palm of His hand…
~ Take the challenge!
…I have found that it’s not possible to experience Him
and be stuck in disappointment at the same time.
Just like a camera lens, one will be out of focus.
As you focus on Him, your disappointment will fade.
Yes, My love, yes.
I am at work.
And what I am doing in your life
is growing and developing something in you
that you will need for what I’ve called you to.
And, if you don’t enter into this holy process, there will be:
parts of Me that you will never know,
and treasures that I’ve placed inside of you that you will never discover.
I am working all things out after the counsel of My will.
Trust Me in the crunch and longing of the process.
I am a God of rest & risk.
I am a God of peace & passion.
I am a radical God who loves everyone,
and every bit of My creation beyond measure.
So, My love, join Me in this great adventure of your life.
Whatever you plant in the soil of your heart,
it will grow.
If you plant bitterness, comparison, envy, disappointment, sadness, resentment…
it will grow.
If you plant thankfulness, hope, joy, expectation, love, kindness, truth…
it will grow.
The human heart is the most fertile soil there is—anywhere.
I am mightier and stronger than any attack that can come against you.
Believe that it is My delight to protect you and empower you
to excel, overcome, and succeed in it all.
Remember that this is all training ground.
Everything you go through can either:
open you up, take you higher, and teach you to love,
or it can close you off, harden your heart, and build walls in your life.
Beloved, everything is an opportunity.
You are My beloved one and when you trust My provision
—even when My provision isn’t the manifestation of your dream—
you mark history.
All a gemstone has to do to shine and release its beauty is to be in the presence of light.
You are a valuable and precious gem.
All you have to do to shine the beauty God’s put within you is live in the Light.
Oh My precious one, yes, I can, and I will, speak to you--
whenever and however you can hear Me.
And, I am abundant and multi-faceted so I can speak, and you can connect with Me in many, many ways. What do you prefer?
