PSALM 51:12 "RESTORE TO ME THE JOY OF YOUR SALVATION; UPHOLD ME WITH YOUR WILLING SPIRIT"
Beloved one, Joy is diminished when you set your eyes on people for your source for joy. Joy is one of
MY Spirit's fruits, not man's fruit. Joy is seeded in Me alone, it comes from roots pressed deep into My heart.
Joy is not giggles tho laughter is a product of joy itself. Joy is not the warm fuzzies nor is it happiness,
these are mere emotions - joy is a fruit, beloved. Happiness stems from circumstances around you while
joy stems from My heart and knowing that I am yours and you are Mine forever.
Joy knows how to stay strong when the laughing stops. Joy knows that it is secure in the Father's love
because it is part of Him just as you are part of Me. Joy rests in the truth that I am constant and change
not as circumstances in life do.
Joy has a song, beloved, this is her song
" AND WE KNOW THAT ALL THINGS WORK TOGETHER FOR GOOD TO THEM THAT LOVE GOD AND
ARE CALLED ACCORDING TO HIS PURPOSE."
Joy sings her song no matter what it faces for it knows I am in control. Learn to sing Joy's song,
beloved, and all will be well with your soul no matter what comes your way.
MATTHEW 11:28-30 (NLT) THEN JESUS SAID, 'COME TO ME ALL OF YOU WHO ARE WEARY AND CARRY HEAVY BURDENS, AND I WILL GIVE YOU REST. TAKE MY YOKE UPON YOU. LET ME TEACH YOU, BECAUSE I AM HUMBLE AND GENTLE, AND YOU WILL FIND REST FOR YOUR SOULS. FOR MY YOKE FITS PERFECTLY, AND THE BURDEN I GIVE YOU IS LIGHT".
Beloved one, the things you try so hard to carry are not yours to carry. The yoke that
weighs you down and rubs sores on your soul because it is too big, is Mine to carry for you.
It is impossible for you to move forward as long as you are struggling to merely stand up. As a
loving parent would not give a small child something to carry that is too heavy, neither do I,
your Father, give you that which is too big for you to carry. My yoke, beloved, keeps you hooked
to Me while allowing Me to bear the weight of your burden. I have provided the great exchange -
your weighty yoke for My easy yoke. My shoulders are strong and broad and My power is unlimited.
Trust Me, beloved, to not only carry your burden but also to carry you when weariness has caused
your knees to buckle. Always remember that what is Mine is yours and what is yours is Mine - yours
fits Me and Mine fits you perfectly. My strength comes alive in your weakness. It is pride that keeps
you heavy laden because it needs to be self sufficient but pride goes before destruction, beloved,
while humility knows that with Me all things are not only possible, they are "carried" out. SELAH!!
Mark 6:31.. "COME ASIDE BY YOURSELF TO A DESERTED PLACE AND REST A WHILE"
Beloved one, Come away, come away from the pulls of the Season. I am not asking you to be gone
long just for a while. I see your weariness and I sense the pressure you find yourself in.
I cannot energize your spirit, soul, and body unless you come away by yourself into My presence for refilling.
PRAYERS ON THE FLY are not the answer. Separation, disconnecting from the whirlwind for a few
moments with Me face to face is what will bring the rest, strength, peace and joy that is needed.
When your car is running low you go to the gas station. When your pantry is running low
you go to the grocery store but when you are running low of strength you keep going.
You push forward without refueling your spirit, soul and body in Me.
Things eventually break when they are not properly maintained. Come away, beloved, before you hit your
breaking point. Self reliance is self destructive. Come aside to a deserted place with Me just for a while,
beloved, and be refilled and strengthened for all the tasks left to do.
COME, BE STILL AND KNOW THAT I AM GOD, your source for whatever you have need of.
In this new year we need to train ourselves to be expectant and patient during God's "due season".This is not easy unless we build our intimacy with Him. One does not know what to "expect" from someone they spend little time getting to know. Let this be a year of getting to know your Father in heaven so that you can have peace during the "due season" times of your prayers.
PSALM 145: 15 "THE EYES OF ALL LOOK EXPECTANTLY TO YOU, AND YOU GIVE THEM THEIR FOOD IN DUE SEASON."
Beloved one, Come before Me not with wishful thinking but with expectancy. Wishful thinking is filled with doubt. I cannot operate where is doubt is nurtured.
I am God of faith!! Faith is contaminated by doubt. Faith comes by hearing and knowing the Word of God. If you do not know what My Word says then you can not have expectant faith you will only have wishful thinking.
Let faith carry your heart's desire to My throne. When I see that faith is carrying your request then I am able to do My work. Faith never drops what it carries as doubt does. Doubt fumbles about unsteady in all its ways. Doubt is timid and I have given you the gift of coming boldly into My throne room to seek My provisions, My help, My attention. Boldness shows forth the confidence you have in My love for you and that you trust My heart.
What is your request, beloved? What does My Word say about your request? Unless you know My will concerning your need how can you "expect" My help. I cannot put My blessing on that which is not My will. For you to come to Me with a request and not know what My Word says about that request is like throwing up your prayers into the wind and hope they land in the right place. There is no expectancy in that kind of praying.
A Word backed expectant prayer must then be left in My hands and My timing. You would not want your baby to be born prematurely for it will be at risk of death. Prayers that are not allowed full term preparation by Me will always result in dying prematurely, dying unfulfilled and fully blessed by My hand.
Expectant trust will stand at your side after you have sent your request to Me with faith as its escort. What do you do while waiting for My perfect answers in My perfect timing? You EXPECT, beloved. You make room for the answer in your heart and your life. If your heart is not big enough to hold the fullness of My answer then you will not reap all that I long to give you. Trust is a "stretcher", beloved. Trust makes room for God.
So, know My heart in the situation, pray, expect, and with trust make room for My "due season" answers.
PSALM 104:3 "WHO LAYS THE BEAMS OF HIS UPPER CHAMBERS IN THE WATER: WHO MAKES THE CLOUDS HIS CHARIOT: WHO WALKS ON THE WINGS OF THE WIND"
CHARIOTS OF WHITE
I SEE THERE IN THE FAR DISTANCE
A CLOUD DRAWING NIGH
TWIRLING JOYFULLY ABOUT
WITH RIDER MOUNTED HIGH.
WITH EASE THEY ARE SWIFTLY GUIDED
UP, DOWN, LEFT, AND RIGHT
GATHERING UP OTHERS INSIDE ITSELF
GROWING STRONG FOR THE MATER'S FLIGHT.
THE "LIGHT" OF ITS HOLY RIDER
SHINES FORTH FROM EAST TO WEST
FROM NORTH TO DEEPEST SOUTH
FULFILLING THE RIDER'S QUEST.
HIS MAJESTY IN HIS FULL GLORY
GIRDED BY HONOR AND MIGHT
IS REVEALED TO THOSE WHO WILL SEE
THE LORD ON HIS CHARIOT OF WHITE.
BLOW ONWARD CLOUDS OF VAPOR
INTO HIS WILL YOU MUST FLY
BRINGING HIS PRESENCE TO ALL
WHO BEHOLDS HIS CHARIOT IN THE SKY.
PSALM 55:22a “CAST YOUR BURDEN ON THE LORD, AND HE SHALL SUSTAIN YOU…”
Beloved one, what burden is it that you carry in your heart? What has
pierced your soul and brings you fear and pain? That which you carry
is not yours to carry. I am your burden bearer, beloved. Only I AM
capable of carrying your burden to victory. Your part is to bring to Me
all that weighs heavy on your heart.
Many would say they have given a thing over to the LORD yet if they
would look closely they would find it tucked away in their back pocket.
When they examine themselves they do not see the burden in their hands
yet they still carry it.
Many come to Me and lay their burdens at MY feet only to take it from Me
unknowingly and slip it into an unseen hiding place. They rejoice at having released it
but soon realize they have left with it in tow.
Will you give Me your burden and not merely “loan” it to Me for a time.
Come to Me, beloved, empty your heart, empty your soul, empty your hands
and empty your pockets at My feet.
Do not just bring Me your burden but leave it with Me. I know just how to fix it.
Release your burden that you may once again dance in freedom unencumbered.
Abba Father – El Shaddai
"YET I AM CONFIDENT THAT I WILL SEE THE LORD'S GOODNESS WHILE I AM HERE IN THE LAND OF THE LIVING. WAIT PATIENTLY FOR THE LORD. BE BRAVE AND COURAGEOUS.
YES, WAIT PATIENTLY FOR THE LORD."
If you have truly given yourself to Me then trust Me with your life.
I know the beginning through to the end of your life here on earth.
I Am not an absentee Father. I Am there, I Am in control, I Am at work for your best.
I Am a God of perfection - I can do no less than that which is perfect.
Anxiety of heart comes because you are impatient for My perfection.
"Due Season" is My timing in all things. "Due Season" brings Me greatest
glory and you greatest blessings. "Due Season is PERFECT ANSWERS
IN PERFECT TIMING. Wait patiently, beloved, the best is on the way.
“GOD ALSO BEARING WITNESS BOTH WITH
SIGNS AND WONDERS, WITH VARIOUS
MIRACLES AND GIFTS OF THE HOLY SPIRIT,
ACCORDING TO HIS OWN WILL.”
How can one see a miracle unless there first be a need for one? Miracles are
for those times when the impossible shows up. Miracles are My response
to mans inability to fix that which needs fixing. When all is well, beloved, then
there is no need for a miracle. Miracles are for when all hope is lost.
Trials and tribulations are the very things that draw the miraculous out.
I am not telling you to desire trials but I am telling you not to fear them
for they are the avenue by which My miracles travel.
Impossible needs are the conduit for miracles. I will not put My power
to that which can be fixed by you. Your helplessness is what puts a demand
on My help. Your negative situations are the positive pull that brings out My
miracles so do not be afraid of that which “seemingly” cannot be fixed.
Do not wring your hands in despair when you hear the words, “It’s
impossible.” but trust Me, your miracle working God, to pour forth
My Grace in your time of NEED.
MIRACLES CAN COME WHERE MIRACLES ARE NEEDED.
MATTHEW 26:39 “HE WENT A LITTLE FARTHER AND FELL ON HIS FACE, AND PRAYED, SAYING, O MY FATHER, IF IT IS POSSIBLE LET THIS CUP PASS FROM ME; NEVERTHELESS, NOT AS I WILL,
BUT AS YOU WILL.”
JOHN 14:21 “HE WHO HAS MY COMMANDMENTS AND KEEPS THEM, IT IS HE WHO LOVES ME. AND HE WHO LOVES ME WILL BE LOVED BY MY FATHER, AND I WILL LOVE HIM AND MANIFEST MYSELF TO HIM.”
THE COST OF OBEDIENCE
Obedience is not a path lined with lollipops and gumdrops. It is a path often times of blood,
sweat, and tears as was with My Son. The price of obedience never changes it has always been
and ever will be the same.
The cost of obedience is “self”.
Self will always pull back when it hears the Word OBEDIENCE. Self always shifts into “self-preservation”
mode. Self will never laugh its way into obedience but know this, beloved, it will always emerge laughing,
singing, and dancing.
Part of the test for obedience is to be kept blindfolded to the other side of it, after all, it is easy to
be obedient if we see what the reward is that is waiting for us afterwards. Obedience has a cost
that is dear to you (self) but it us priceless to Me.
Obedience is the hand that opens the window of My abundant blessings. Obedience is the
wrapper that you must tear through to get to the gift of My presence. My presence is not
for the “sight-seer” who is satisfied with a glimpse from far away but it is for the
“diligent seeker” who regardless of cost does what it takes to touch what it longs for.
Your obedience brings about My manifestation that is why the enemy fights so hard to get
you to lay obedience down and turn away. O, beloved, is not a moment with Me worth the
cost of obedience? Obey even when it hurts for if you do, I will arrive with
“Healing in My wings” and blessing abounding.
Abba Father – El Shaddai (Almighty God)
Phillipians 4:6,7 “Be Anxious For Nothing, But In Everything By Prayer And Supplication With Thanksgiving Let Your Requests Be Made Known To God; And The Peace Of God, Which Surpasses All Understanding, Will Guard Your Hearts And Minds Through Christ Jesus.”
My heart sees, My ears hear, My hands are ready to contend with your enemy but there is a problem. If you take up the position of god in this situation then I cannot BE God in it. There is not room for two God’s, beloved.
I will not share My glory with anyone. I and I alone have perfection ready for your storm. I and I alone am mightier than the noise of the winds and pounding rain and crashing seas that you are engulfed in.
As long as you are intent on being god then you will be god but I must warn you, beloved, as long as you are god in a situation everything and everyone you are trying to fix, will die a little more each day. Your attempt to be god, delays My power in that which you are so desperately trying to save.
“Be Still And Know That I Am God”. Cease from dethroning Me, beloved. Lay down your useless efforts of making things right and do what is the most effective thing you can do - PRAY. Let go of your grip on the rudder of your storm tossed ship and raise your hands to Me in prayer.
I cannot speak to your storm until you relinquish your futile control of it to Me. Oh, beloved, how I long for you to truly come to know the power you have in prayer. Not one of My other creation has this wonderful “weapon”. Even the demons do not have the privilege of coming boldly to My Throne Room in prayer. Only those who call Me LORD are blessed with this honor.
So I say to you, beloved, “in” this storm that has raged itself against you, I am asking you to Stay Out Of God’s Way And Pray then and only then will you and all others involved in your storm be able to emerge with this song in your heart…. “This Was The Lord’s Doing And It Is Marvelous In Our Sight.” Psalm 118:23
Now take up your weapon of prayer, stand behind Me and let Me still your storm and bring all involved into safe haven.
“He Calms The Storm, So That Its Waves Are Still.
Then They Are Glad Because They Are Quiet; So He Guides Them To Their Desired Haven. Psalm 107:29,30
Selah! Abba God
Search Me, O God, And Know My Heart; Try Me And Know My Anxieties
And See If There Is Any Wicked Way In Me, And Lead Me In The Way Of Everlasting.”
I AM the Light that penetrates all darkness. I search and seek out that which
hides within My children. Many times My people ask Me to show them what is
in their hearts only to pull away if I draw close to a door of their heart that
is kept locked.
I do not search you to bring evidence against you to condemn you, beloved.
I search you to show you those things that contaminate you and bring you pain
and also those things that are of Me that you have not tapped into yet.
My heart is grieved when I see the sign “do not enter” hanging on a door in the corner
of your heart but I will not violate your will. A heart that has kept portions unavailable
to My Light is a heart that is not fully occupied by Me.
Will you not release My Light of Love into every room of your heart, after all, beloved,
there may be wondrous treasures hidden under all the junk you are trying to hide from
Me. You can never hide anything from My sight, child, you are only denying My Light
access to bring the healing of revealing.
Let Me Shine, Beloved, That You May Also Shine.
John 14:27 “I am leaving you with a gift – peace of mind and heart!
And the peace I give isn’t fragile like the peace the world gives.
So don’t be troubled or afraid.”
Can you hear the gentle song I sing over you?
It is a song so dearly needed to be heard by you. This song comes
from the very depths of My heart to the very depths of yours.
The song is simple yet filled with power to release you from all the
turmoil that has found its place in your heart and mind. Be still,
beloved, lend your ear to My lips for this song must be sung in
quietness of soul.
This song is the very song that rested within Me as I slept in the
bottom of the boat when with My disciples on the stormy sea.
It was a song that only I heard the Father singing for I was the only
one who allowed it to do its work.
It is the song that hovers over you when the storms rage or when
the pain is unbearable. It is the song that cradles the weary heart and
the broken in spirit securely in its first three letters – “SON”.
Sshhhh, beloved, sshhhh. Listen, for the song is wafting over you this
very moment. Be still, broken one, surrender to its melody and be revived.
“PEACE, beloved, PEACE, for tis’ PEACE that thy heart longs
PEACE, beloved, PEACE, for tis’ PEACE that dwells in My song.
PEACE, beloved, PEACE, for tis’ PEACE I whisper to thee
PEACE, beloved PEACE, for tis’ PEACE that sets thee free.
“YOU PREPARE A TABLE BEFORE ME IN THE PRESENCE OF MY ENEMIES…”
The table is set for whatever you need in battle. I have placed upon it a feast void of heart burn - only heart strengthening.
Take and eat, beloved, in the midst of raging battles.
Need courage – eat
Need faith – eat
Need hope – eat
Need joy - eat
Need grace – eat
Need deliverance – eat
Need comfort – eat
Need wisdom – eat
Whatever you have need of in every attack from the enemy,
I have laid it out before you to feast on. If you will eat of My provisions during the battles you will feast on victory every time.
When the enemy sees that you are peacefully partaking of My provisions while you are in the struggle it is he who suffers “heart burn”.
Feast On The Table I Have Set Before You In The Presnece Of Your Eenemise
And You Will Emerge From Battle Fully Satisfied.
Romans 8:27 “Now He Who Searches The Hearts Knows What The Mind Of The Spirit Is, Because He Makes Intercession For The Saints According To The Will Of GOD.”
Beloved one, be at peace for I, your Lord Jesus, am personally in constant prayer for you. Not a moment goes by that I do not pray to The Father for you and The Father always hears Me when I pray. (John 11:42).
Unlike mankind, I do not become careless and sporadic in My praying. My prayers for you are always “fervent” and “effectual”. James 5:16 says, “… the effective, fervent prayer of a righteous man avails much. I am The God of Righteousness who became Man. Because I am Righteousness Itself, My prayers for you are filled with limitless power, always perfect, always fervent and always effective.
The enemy knows he can not prevail against My prayers for you because I always pray the will of My Father concerning you. Satan may be able to hinder the prayers of people but he cannot touch Mine. They are sealed in Truth and wrapped Divine power.
Do not worry, child about your situations or those of your loved ones for I knew of them before the foundation of the earth and they have been covered by My prayers from before the beginning of all time.
Rest assured, beloved, that I will never stop holding you up before My Father. I pray for you and your loved ones unceasingly, every second of every day. To pray for you brings Me great joy and I shall never tire of this pleasure.
Psalm 34:17 “The LORD hears His people when they call to Him for help.
He rescues them from all their troubles.”
I hear your cry. I hear your slightest whimper, My child. How can I not hear the voice of the one I so dearly love. Love keeps My ears focused on you. I can do nothing else but be attentive to the beat of My heart. You are that to me. All of Who I Am is directed towards you. Be it the wailing cries of your lips or the silent yearnings of your heart – I HEAR. All of heaven stands ready to receive from Me the answers to your cry. With the slightest movement of my finger they burst into action to bring you My help in time of need. You, beloved, are the focus of the eyes and ears of Almighty God. When you speak, I hear and My heart is moved. Grace and Mercy take flight and wing their way to your soul. Yes, My beloved, I HEAR. SELAH
“GOD Also Bearing Witness Both With Signs And Wonders, With Various
Miracles And Gifts Of The Holy Spirit, According To His Own Will.”
How can one see a miracle unless there first be a need for one? Miracles are for those times when the impossible
shows up. Miracles are My response to mans inability to fix that which needs fixing. When all is well, beloved,
then there is no need for a miracle. Miracles are for when all hope is lost.
Trials and tribulations are the very things that draw the miraculous out. I am not telling you to desire trials but
I am telling you not to fear them for they are the avenue by which My miracles travel.Impossible needs are the
conduit for miracles.
I will not put My power to that which can be fixed by you. Your helplessness is what puts a demand on My help. Your negative situations are the positive pull that brings out My miracles so do not be afraid of that which “seemingly” cannot be fixed.
Do not wring your hands in despair when you hear the words, “It’s impossible.” but trust Me,
your miracle working God, to pour forth My Grace in your time of NEED.
MIRACLES CAN COME WHERE MIRACLES ARE NEEDED.
JOHN 11:40 “Did I Not Say To You That If You Would But Believe You Would See The Glory Of GOD”
What do you truly believe in? Faith holds your feet to the fire of whatever it is placed into. You see, beloved, what you truly believe in has great power in your life. Faith wraps itself around you and carries you along. Faith is powerful! Faith moves mountains, faith changes things, faith brings things that are not into things that are but you must be careful what you put your faith into.
Faith in man brings the fire of disappointment. Faith in money brings the fire of dissatisfaction. Faith in self brings the fire of failure. There is only one faith that is victorious and that is faith in ME. Misdirected faith will pull you into bondage. Faith in anything but ME is a destroyer, it devours hope and life but faith in ME releases the fire of God into situations purifying them as gold.
Look to ME, the Author and Finisher of godly faith. If you will hook your faith up to Me and Me alone then you will see the Glory of God shine on whatever you are believing for and when My Glory rests on a thing - all is well. SELAH
ESTHER 4:14b, “Who Knoweth Whether Thou Art Come To The Kingdom For Such A Time As This?”
Let not your heart be troubled. Heed not the voice of the enemy that would tell you that you have no purpose. Reject the lie that you were a mistake, an accident, not wanted or needed. Do not question that I have brought you into the earth for such a time as this. Your birth was designed and planned before the creation of the world, beloved. Your existence is not the result of human lust. No, child, you are here at MY bidding. For you to question your existence is to question the wisdom of Almighty God. My love brought you here, My love keeps you while you remain here and My love will bring you back to Me when the plans I designed for you here are completed. You have a destiny, beloved, or you would not be here. I do nothing without purpose and intent and that includes giving you life. My daughter Esther was chosen to be taken into the seemingly evil palace by Me not because of the lustful craving of a king. Though she faced perilous times she was exactly who I wanted there for what was to take place. Can you trust Me as she did in good situations as well as “seemingly” bad ones? Can you seek My face for your daily path knowing that I will be with you wherever I take you? Can you believe that I brought you forth from your mother’s womb? If you can do this then you too like Esther will be at peace knowing that I have brought you to this exact place at this exact time for My purpose. This is the day I have made and YOU are an intricate part of it, beloved. SELAH
