Beloved in Christ
We pray that as you rise today God will meet you with the opening of your eyes. We pray you will hear the rustle of the angel’s wings standing over you, watching out for you. We pray you will smell the fragrance of our Savior as His essence moves around you. We pray Holy Spirit will fill you so full of happiness and joy this day you will burst with joy, hope and faith.
Know this; Jesus is right at your side. Your Father is watching over you, and what causes you concern and distress doesn’t even cause a wrinkle on His brow. Stop for a minute and close your eyes. Listen as Jesus is whispers in your ear…I am very near…Feel the warmth of His touch as He places His hand upon your shoulder, guiding you by His Spirit. We pray this letter of love form Him nourishes your heart and soul.
But, on the contrary, as the Scripture says, What eye has not seen and ear has not heard and has not entered into the heart of man, [all that] God has prepared (made and keeps ready) for those who love Him [[a]who hold Him in affectionate reverence, promptly obeying Him and gratefully recognizing the benefits He has bestowed] (1 Cor 2:9 Amplified)
As you rose this morning I was present at your side, at the opening of your eyes. Angels attend Me, and their wings rustle as they stand over you, watching out for every aspect of your life and heart. The very fragrance of who I am is stirred by their wings and infiltrates the atmosphere of your home and family. Joy is arising from the very depths of your being and wants to be shouted forth in grateful praise.
Joy says to you this morning, “I am your strength. I am the joy of your salvation, so don’t focus on your lack (Psalms 95:1; Psalms 118:15). Focus with a grateful heart on all the Lord has done in bygone days. Focus on the promises He has given you with a heart of faith. Feast on His acts of goodness, and look to the future with anticipation and desperation for more.”
Satisfaction and desperation can live hand in hand, crowding out all attitudes of ungratefulness and lack. Live in the throes of divine tension and be amazed. It has not yet entered into your heart all I have planned for you, but it will (1 Corinthians 2:9). Like I said, “Live in divine tension, and prepare yourself to be amazed.”
Do not fret, My child. The enemy only has an inkling of the plans I have for you. He can only speculate and fret about the people you are going to touch, and bring to Me. The healing and restoration you give to the hearts of My people whom I send to you dismay him, and he does not want this to happen.
Therefore, he makes every attempt to stop you, for he knows you are a great part of ushering in My Kingdom in all of its fullness. There is going to be a last great revival, and you, My child, are a player in bringing this about. I have many of My children out there who are called by My Name, who are called of Me, but they have been greatly wounded. I want you to go to My bruised reeds (Isaiah42:3).
I am using you to bring healing and restoration to them (Isaiah 61). I am using you to heal My wounded hearts so they can rise in the light of My glory and walk out their destiny. Yes, so they can take part in this revival, this new movement in the earth. Rise to the challenge, and know you are prepared in every way. Don’t look back! A new day has dawned, and new revelation is raining into the very fabric of your life. Oh, the plans I have for you. They are truly amazing in every way.
I have sent, and I am sending, people into your life who will love you through all things. They have and will play a part in keeping you restored. They are an inner circle of people who will wipe your tears and laugh with you in triumph. They will hold your arms up in battle when you are weary. They will dance with you in your victories (Romans 12:15). They are your angels of mercy and support. Be mindful to do the same for them and others.
I do not want you to fear about those things going on about you. You are my Mighty Warrior. The enemy trembles when you lift up your hands, for he knows the calling and anointing I have placed upon you. Don’t you worry about what others may be saying around you. Some of it is fear, and some of it is jealousy. Just keep your eyes on Me.
Beloved, you are a five star general in My army. I have chosen you to lead many in the Way. I have chosen you to receive plans and strategies to dismantle the enemy in this day. It is not complicated. If I only tell you to say one simple word of declaration, it will be enough, for the power of who I am is behind it and will vanquish your foes, My foes. One step at a time is all I ask of you. Listen and obey. Be wise as to good and evil (Romans 16:19; 1 Samuel 15:22).
Today I am promoting you. Come up higher in your own estimation of who I say you are. Come up higher and hear my heart for this generation, for the nations.
As you worship Me this morning, shutting out the world around you, I will come. Close your eyes, and enter into the Spirit. Enter in expecting Me to usher you into My presence. I arrived here before you, and I am waiting with excitement to meet you. Grab a pen and paper, for I am going to place some golden nuggets of truth in you today, some mustard seeds of incredible potential, eternal seeds destined to bear much fruit.
Remember the mustard seed, the smallest seed of all, and what it can grow into (Mark 4:30-32). If a natural seed can grow into such a marvelous thing, how much more will the eternal seeds from heaven grow in you. Sometimes you think your soil is bad, but I am here to tell you today, “The soil of your salvation is good soil and can grow anything. It is rooted in love, love flowing down from Calvary” (Ephesians 3:17).
There is no greater love, no more fertile ground, than soil saturated by My blood. When I give you a word of encouragement, a word of instruction, a word or prophecy, consciously place it in the good soil of salvation within your heart, your spirit. This assures growth. Nurture the Word I give you by speaking it, agreeing with it, and declaring it (Job 22:28).
Now take time to worship Me, listen and write down words I give you. They are the seeds of life that will bear much fruit today and in the days to come.
Arise from your place of worship this morning, and stand with the living creatures before My throne. Give glory and honor to My name (Revelation 4:9). Let nothing distract or disturb you in this. Give Me the first fruits of your day today and every day (Deuteronomy 18:4). Amazing things will happen if you do.
Come to Me first with your problems, worries and concerns – before you ever whisper them to another soul. This is something you must train yourself in. Many times you hear the words of men, and they vary to such a large degree that confusion can come. Come to Me first, and then let the witness of two or more confirm what I have deposited in your heart (Proverbs 15:22).
Arise from your place of worship today, and shout a shout of victory for your time has come. The more you praise, the more you confess what I have said to you, the more seeds planted in you will grow until they consume the very essence of your life.
Yes, I am standing with you, by you and in you today. Angels are attending you in every way. Mercy and goodness follow you and are overtaking you in all you do (Psalms 23:6). Today is the best day of your life for it is a day I have made and planned for. Worship Me, and listen. I will tell you all the thoughts and intents of My heart for this day and every day after (1 Corinthians 2:16). Arise! Walk with Me for I am good and My love endures forever.
As I rise this day Father, I choose to revel in Your words of instruction and encouraging love. You are amazing in Your relentless, pursuit of love. I stand in awe. Your joy permeates me to the depth of my being and I am changed. My heart is the habitation of good soil bought by Your precious blood. I am rooted and grounded in Your love and step up to the challenges offered to me. I will tend the seeds and the dreams You have planted in my heart, therefore I will grow and many will find healing from their woundedness as I share the life planted in me.
I will come to You daily and give the first fruits of my life at the altar of Your mighty love. I rejoice in those sent to hold up my hands, to rejoice with me, to weep with me and I will draw from treasures planted in them. My heart holds Your thoughts, Your intents. I walk in Your plans which are ever revealing themselves as I focus on You. I rest in You, arise in You and walk with You today. Amen
1. Have you been looking at things from a place of lack instead of having a heart of gratefulness? Confess and readjust your focus.
