But He said to me, My grace (My favor and loving-kindness and mercy) is enough for you [sufficient against any danger and enables you to bear the trouble manfully]; for My strength and power are made perfect (fulfilled and completed) and show themselves most effective in [your] weakness. Therefore, I will all the more gladly glory in my weaknesses and infirmities, that the strength and power of Christ (the Messiah) may rest (yes, may pitch a tent over and dwell) upon me! (2 Corinthians 12:9 Amplified)

My Strength And Power Are Perfected In Your Weakness

My dear child, my heart cries for you whenever I see you discouraged. Have you forgotten My promise that I will never leave you alone (Hebrews 13:5)? Remember when I said “Keep still for I am God.”

I see how you fight it out to see the light when all seems dark. I am always with you and even a small flickering light is all you need to create a glow in the darkness. You are My salt and light in this world (Matthew 5:13a). I illumine your darkness and make you a city on a hill (Psalms 18:28). Stay within the flame of My heart and all will be revealed by the light of My Word and redeeming love. Remember, even darkness is light to Me.

Such faith you have and it endears you to Me. Nothing is ever hidden from Me. Your fears are always covered by My blood, so surrender them to Me one by one. It is imperative you do this now in order to move on. Fear paralyzes with threatening force, bringing the greatest of endeavors to a standstill. Remember, I conquered fear at the Cross.

Look to the Cross and see what I have ALREADY done. Whenever you gaze at My cross and contemplate all its meaning, I am pleased with you and the enemy flees. The redemption of the Cross and all it contains is symbolic of everything I gave for you, laid down for you and all I offer to you right now.

My right hand does valiantly on your behalf and stretches out over you, redeeming your emotions, your thoughts your mind (Psalms 118:6). My strength and power are perfected in your weakness and My grace is sufficient (2 Corinthians 12:9). Nothing is impossible in Me because I have given you all I am and no word I speak is without power (Luke 1:37).

In the Cross I have redeemed you body, soul and spirit and have enabled you to say, “Your will, not mine be done.”

Power Of The Cross

I have redeemed your spirit and you are alive in Me forever more. As the Cross pointed to heaven on the day I gave Myself in complete surrender, your heart now does the same. My blood flowed down the cross, and the stripes I took redeemed your body from sickness. Your body is redeemed from death to eternal life in Me. I disarmed every power and principality and triumphed over them (Colossians 2:15). I have ensured your freedom. Enter in the holy place with confidence and be transformed (Hebrews 10:19).

All these redemptive gifts in your emotions, mind, will, and body are accomplished by My sufficient grace made perfect in your weakness. All victory comes by way of the Cross. So, take time to meditate on the Cross and all of its redeeming graces and remember with a thankful heart all I have done for you.

All the redeeming promises paid by My death on the Cross are yours because of my unconditional love for you. It is finished and you are now to savor with great satisfaction the fruits of My redeeming graces. They are all yours to enjoy to the fullest as a sign of My Father?s love for you.

When I left to be at the right hand of My Father, the Comforter, the Holy Spirit came to lead and guide you into all truth. The enduring love of the Trinity is yours to feed on, to nourish you, to strengthen you.

Abide in Me as My Word instructs. Abiding in Me is all you need to do. Remember, everything in your life flows out of one place or another. Everything flows out of your place of abiding. So, abide in Me. Abide in the redemptive works of the Cross and come boldly into the Holy place (Hebrews 10:18). There is no other way.

Reaping In Due Season

In the fullness of time, all will be accomplished. All will come to fruition. Your growing wisdom is a result of time with Me causing you to display the Beautiful You I made you to be. Fear not, I am here to enlighten you, guide you and see to it that you are never side tracked. I am directing you and giving you the discerning grace to see any untoward incident about to come. The warning light will flash each time you are about to go wayward My committed one. David was a man after My own heart and I always forewarned him, and likewise I forewarn you.

I show no partiality to any man but the devoted heart attracts the attention of Heaven (Romans 2:11). You have the attention of Heaven and all it contains so be alert and on guard over your heart. Continue to abide in Me.

I am renewing your focus and your strength. I am renewing you enabling you to be like an eagle with sturdy wings. Therefore, you will have the courage of Esther, the faith of Daniel and the compassion and forgiving heart of Joseph. I am giving you a steadfast spirit.

Your emergence and the overwhelming discoveries of how much you can do in Me are signs of the flowering stages of your life. I?m putting people alongside you to work with you and I will equip you for every good work. All will happen according to My perfect time. All will be made beautiful in time so do not grow weary in doing good. Do not despise small beginnings. Yes, all will come into alignment with what is already done in Heaven. All, yes, all…

Food of Divine Inspiration

Be sensitive to My leading. Your rich ideas are all coming from My divine inspirations and intervention. I am the great source of knowledge. No human mind can fathom the depth of My thoughts. Yet, I will see to it My message will be received by you as clear as the waters of a pristine stream.

Have I not said you hold the thoughts and intents of My heart (1 Corinthians 2:16)? I have so much to say and you are willing to listen. Because of this I share things with you no one else hears. However, if they would listen, they would hear. I am always talking, but most are not listening. Beloved, I must admit, I take full advantage of a good listener. Never stop listening and I will never stop talking or sharing My ideas and thoughts with you.

Great ideas, unique in their own way, seemingly unreachable by human standards, are doable, are reachable by My grace. Don?t be afraid or feel insecure in the days to come. Remember, I am perfected in your weakness and I give grace to the humble. Go ahead and do as I lead you, knowing I am your constant companion, your ever-present inspiration. We must and will work together. Amazing things will happen and you will be overwhelmed by the grandness of who I am in you and for you. Do not be afraid as you stand before men of stature. Open your mouth and I will speak.

Others might have a problem with being in the midst of such great things. Not you! This is why I can do so much in your life. I know your heart and I am pleased. Your heart is gifted with the grace of humility, not affected by worldly fame, but always grateful for My promptings. Yes, you are one who always gives the glory back to Me. Prepare yourself and don?t let your heart get bogged down in menial distractions. There is a higher way. I make the mundane in to reservoirs of free flowing grace, into opportunities to hear, into avenues of holiness which reap great rewards. Continue on? and stay focused.

Set Your Focus Like Flint

Don?t, even for a moment, look back. Refrain from looking to the left or right. Move with determination and go straight ahead. I need your complete attention, a steadfast spirit, a clean heart and single-minded focus in order for you to do your supreme best.

I always demand the best you have to give since you are so equipped to do so. Take it from Me; I know, because I have made all available to you. All will be comfortably provided for. It will be like manna falling from heaven. Just abide in Me. Stay focused, focused, focused.

An undisturbed contemplation in what I want you to do is vital, even crucial and a

prerequisite to what is to be accomplished for My Kingdom. I am sending special people to work hand in hand with you. They will come and stand side by side with you, always having the same mind and spirit. My Divine intervention will cause a beautiful working together among my chosen sons and daughters… You will see it come to pass. It is happening NOW.

All to be is beyond your human comprehension. I will make things happen and you will accomplish things beyond your wildest dreams. It will be like being in a deep sleep and when you wake up, all will be possible, and all will be done.

I can hear your thoughts as they utter those age old words, ?HOW!? It is a great mystery, isn?t it? All things begin and end in Me. All I have already done simply comes in to view and is manifest for you to see. It is already done. You just can?t see it yet. This is why you must have faith. Remember, faith is the substance of things hoped for and the evidence of things yet unseen. All time already is in Me. Just believe and see.


Open Wide The Gates Of Heaven

This is how I make things happen. I open the doors of Heaven and I come in. Beloved, know the doors and gates of heaven are open for the outpouring of My blessings. Remember, they are not just for you alone, but for the Body of Christ, My people. I am opening wide the gates and I, the King of Glory, am coming in. I am coming into your life in a fresh and royal way, for I delight in you. You are beautiful to Me, beautiful in every way.

You are my beautiful channel, My generous abiding channel. I know your heart and your generosity, a generosity that often intrigues others. How they wonder how you can be so generous and selfless. Many a times you are misunderstood for being foolish. You never gave thought to such accusations because you believe selflessness is your way of loving Me through others.

The words and the good news I have to say will be sounded in the most remote corner of the world. Those who hear and read of My wondrous works will long and thirst for more, more, and more till they are consumed by Me… For this reason you must, you need to feed on more of Me to be able to give more.

Journey with those I have sent to you, those I have lovingly chosen from amongst my people. I have put a mark on them, for they hear My voice and do not follow another. I have sealed the work you are to do together with the kiss of Heaven. Distance is never a hindrance. Therefore, don?t let distance be an issue when I bring them into your life. Be joined in purpose and vision with by My all encompassing love.

Have but one conclusion; the Journey is on and My Kingdom is come!!!

Prayer

The Lord never leaves me nor does He forsake me, therefore, I do not fear. I lie down in the presence of the Lord and still my heart to hear His still small voice. All darkness in my life is illumined by His presence in my life. I embrace the Cross and all it stands for in my life and in the lives of those I love. I surrender all emotions, thoughts and fears to the power of the Cross and walk in resurrection power. Holy Spirit is teaching me, guiding me and leading me into all truth as I abide in the Lord. Mercy and grace for every need is at my disposal when I draw near to Him. All things work together for my good because I love Him and am called according to His purpose. My strength is renewed for I am aligned with the will of Heaven.

My heart is soft and sensitive to the Lord. I do not have a heart of stone. I hold the thoughts and intents of His heart; therefore, I have discernment and wisdom in all things. My life is a reservoir of His manifest grace and power. I do not look back, nor do I look to the right or the left and my gaze is fixed on the Lord. While I am sleeping He is at work to bring all into being according to His perfect timing. The gates of my life are open and the King of Glory is coming in day by day, moment by moment and I am transformed. I am His abiding channel which holds the seed of Christ for the world. Today I feed at the table He has set before me. In Him there are no limits. I am not limited. I am consumed by the Lord. Amen

Reflect and Journal

  1. Have you been keeping still in Him? If not take some time to do so.
  2. What fears do you need to surrender in order to move on?
  3. In what areas have you felt weak and incompetent to do things required of you in your life in any area or to do the work of the Lord.
  4. Have you had particular trouble with your emotions, thought life or in your physical body? If so, take some time to get into His presence and let Holy Spirit minister lead you, guide you and teach you. Let Him open the Word to you and receive freedom.
  5. The Lord says you have a devoted heart and have garnered the attention of Heaven. Reflect on this and respond.
  6. Your life is flowering, opening like a beautiful garden. He is bringing people to work alongside you. What is your response?
  7. Take some time to contemplate the fact that you hold the thoughts and intents of His heart. What does this mean to you?
  8. He considers you one with a humble heart and His reservoir of free flowing grace. What struggles in your life seem to defy these words. Express them. Release them and receive what He has said.
  9. Have you been looking back, thinking your past or past activities render the hand of God powerless or at least hold Him at bay?
  10. What things from your past try and interfere with the things He has called you too?
  11. Ponder on the people He has sent into your life. How can you be a blessing to them?
  12. He is standing at the door of your life, ready and able to deliver all He has promised. He has come with the backing of Heaven. How does this put your worries and concerns in perspective?
  13. He wants to bless you in order to bless others. Can you receive this outpouring of blessing? Let go of any disqualifications you may want to tout. Confess, repent and receive. The time has come.
