Comparing oneself to another in any wayâ€”good or badâ€”is detrimental. Comparison will always lead to a critical spirit which stops everyone concerned in their tracks. Donâ€™t even compare your present state with …
Humans in the natural become tired when they walk a long way or when they run; but, with Me, you can both walk and run without becoming tired or weary for I will renew your strength. Ponder some of the meanings of renew. To renew is to extend something past its original state, to begin again, to give someone new energy, strength or enthusiasm, to repair, restore, mend, replenish,
Beloved, old ways of doing things ended when I came. You are in Me and I am in you, therefore; you are a new creature. You are a son of the most high God capable of demonstrating and walking all I walked in (2 Corinthians 5:17). You moved from darkness to lightâ€”from old covenant to new covenant when I came into your heartâ€¦into your life. Now who I am is multiplied in and through you. Every time you release who I am in you I am once again multiplied. How I love multiplication.
In the very beginning I gave a blessing of fruitfulness to Adam and Eve which was meant to continue on through the generations. However, things were subverted by the enemyâ€¦what happened when Adam and Eve believed a lie about who I was and still am. The enemyâ€™s desire was to sabotage, undermine and destabilize all I had given them and lead them into death and not lifeâ€¦into bareness and not fruitfulness. They had to leave the garden, least they live forever in their sinâ€¦least they live forever in unfruitfulness dooming all to come to an eternal existence not destined by Me.
Beloved, like a small child, who by covering their eyes believes others cannot see them, you sometimes feel as if you are not being seenâ€¦that you are hidden even though in the natural you are in plain view (Hebrews 4:13). It can seem at times as if life is behind you, passed you by or covered you up with its demands and circumstances. When this happens, even in small ways, you have a tendency to think I canâ€™t see you or what is happening to you.
Seeing I have been perfectly capable and trustworthy to hold the times and seasons in place, I am more than able to handle and help you navigate the seasons of your lifeâ€¦more than capable of giving you counsel just as I gave it to David in his night seasons (Psalms 16:7).
As you forgive others and your own self, your heart will be cleansed of all defilement and guilt. My blood poured crimson red for this and now you are dressed in white linen, full of love and bursting with joy. Though your sins were as scarlet, they are now white as snow (Isaiah 1:18).
The Spirit of the Lord GOD is upon me, Because the LORD has anointed me To bring good news to the afflicted; He has sent me to bind up the brokenhearted, To proclaim liberty to captives And freedom to prisoners; To proclaim the favorable year of the LORD And the day of vengeance of our God; To comfort all who mourn, To grant those who mourn in Zion, Giving them a garland instead of ashes, The oil of gladness instead of mourning, The mantle of praise instead of a spirit of fainting So they will be called oaks of righteousness, The planting of the LORD, that He may be glorified (Isaiah 61:1-3 NASB)
Beloved, come and receive. Come and discover the truths of the Potterâ€™s Wheel and all it has had to offer in your life. Come discover how I view abused, broken and devastated pots of clayâ€¦how I view men, who like pots are made from clay unto Adam and now beyond. I formed you from the dust knowing there would be the need to reshape and remold in the days to come. I was perfectly aware of the process and did not disdain it nor did I shrink back from you because things would need to be revamped along the way. A good potter, which I am, has great patience and insight
Beloved, never get comfortable in the wilderness places of your life. And remember, they are not to be considered as places of abandonment or rejection, but as temporary places of residence conducive to experiencing Me in yet undiscovered ways. When you are in the wilderness you find out who I am and who you are. And yes, you will find out who you are not. Identity is forged in the desert in a way it cannot be accomplished any other place.
