Time has come to live by Heavenâ€™s economy and not the economy of the world around you. Things that look successful on the surface as far as the world is concerned can be found to be unclean, impure and without any lasting depth when looked at more closely with discerning spirits. Even the natural supplies of the earth itself can run out as has been evidenced in your time, while in Heaven there is always more than enoughâ€¦more than you have begun to imagine. It all depends on the perspective from which you are viewing things.
Like a lamp, your brightness cannot be hidden. It may at times flicker in the beginning but will shine really bright to illumine dark spots in the lives of many. As I have illumined your darkness, you shall illumine others (Psalms 18:28). Be not silent, My Esther, in this day of your favor (Esther 4:14; Esther 5:3).
I cannot say no to your request for I have seen and felt the humility of your heart, your life. Certainly, I will allow you to be in the deep waters of My love and caring (John15:9; John 16:27). Savor it, feel it, and bathe in the intensity of My powerful and infinite LOVE.
I know how sometimes hard things come in what seems like wave upon wave and thoughts of Job enter your conscience thinking. When this happens the tendency is to focus on the negative and not on the end result of Jobâ€™s suffering which was the manifestation of multiplied blessingâ€¦a blessing of more than enough.
Problems will appear so much lessâ€¦so much less threatening and intimidating when you see them from My perspective. When you come up and see as I see, you will understand why the Psalms say I laugh at My enemiesâ€¦that I laugh at the wicked (Psalms 37:13). They are so small compared to Me and so are your enemies regardless of what or who they may be.
Beloved, sometimes obligation and drudgery rule the day because of your own unfulfilled self-expectations about what time with Me is all aboutâ€¦what loving Me is all about. Read an hour, pray an hour, meditate an hour and on and on the story goes. None of the afore-mentioned things are bad, but when done to fill a square they are robbed of life and relationship. I would rather you speak to Me about one Scripture for a month than be caught up in ritualistic or legalistic mindsets and ways.
Remember this; gratefulness opens the courts of heaven as you come into My gates with thanksgiving and praise. Never underestimate the power of even a simple thank you. Why donâ€™t you try it right now? Thank me for somethingâ€¦for anything you can think of and encounter a fresh release of My Presence.
I lead you beside these waters because of My great love and take you beyond the time of drought by building faith to see. Holy Spirit, with gentle flowing streams divine of healing and mercy, flow into you.
The tides have turned in your favor My beloved king and priest. The devorouer is rebuked for your sake and the sake of the Kingdom. Hold your head up and look to the mountain from whence your help comes from. It comes from Me. Don?t you ever for a moment forget it either. The time has come to let the world know you are mine in every way.
Beloved, I have heard you crying out in prayer to Me; I have heard your desire crying out to hear My tender voice. I know you have need of Me and I am here to answer you. Before one sound left your lips, I came. In fact, I am ever present, ever near and always listening. I am wooed by your need to love and be loved. I am wooed by your heart like one drawn outside into the midst of a sunny spring day. When you call, I answer (Psalm 18).
