All the pain and rejection of this lifeâ€¦all you have suffered and endured will be worth it all. For the nails driven deep into My flesh prepared the way for your salvation and for your call. Who you are and the dreams of your heart are non-negotiable as far as I am concerned. They are written on the walls of destiny with My blood.
The enemy has been after what is within you. Why? He still longs to bring defeat to Me and counts it a joy to use you in the process. This is nothing new. One thing He seems to forget. I have already won and so have you. Cling to Meâ€¦hide in Me and be resurrected from the dead while you are yet living. I am here to make it so.
It is all about knowing the worth and the value I place in and on you. You are more than the birds of the air, more than the sparrow or swallow and yet I care for them (Matthew 10:26; Psalms 84:1-4; Luke 12:6). If I think it is important enough to number the hairs of your head, donâ€™t you think I care enough about all the promises and dreams of your heart. Of course I do. I am not limited to the ability of any man to keep his promise. I am the Promised One and I am the Promise.
How many dreams do you think David had while tending his sheep? I will let you in on a little secret. He had more dreams than you can count and they all were birthed out of his worship and intimacy with Me. He didnâ€™t wait till he became a king to dream. Dreaming gave way to being a king. He allowed destiny and purpose to unfold a bear and a lion until finally Goliath fell (1 Samuel 17:34-37).
For thirty-three years the Tabernacle of David, a mere tent, was filled with worship day and nightâ€¦night and day as the reality of his dreams progressed (1 Chronicles 16:37, 23:5, 25:6-7; 2 Samuel 5:5; For more information read 2 Samuel 6 and 1 Chronicles 13-16)
In the blink of an eye and with just one moment in the presence of My light and glory all things are accomplished. One moment is more than enough and can fill a lifetime with desire for more. Sonâ€¦daughterâ€¦I am ever present with hands outstretched and heart extended toward you. My words are ever increasing and without partiality. I am giving Myself to you in a whole new way today
Yes, I am the potter and you are the clay. However, your vessel is made to be contained by Me and hold dreams and aspects of My person. These aspects will be made visible and manifest through the dreams of your heart. After all you originated in My heart, for all things begin and end in Me (Romans 11:36).
Come into a timeâ€¦come to a time of residing in green pastures as David did. Come and see what it is I do in this day and hour. Come and be with Me. When you do the dreams and desires of your heart will become vivid and they will pull you like a magnet to fulfill all I have planned. Revel in the beauty of who I say you are. People are not attracted to sour grapes but they are attracted to sweet honey
Dreams and promises given by Me and not planted and nurtured in faith become like dry bones. Dry bones rob moisture from the environment around them. They take life instead of giving it. Dryness invades and creates hopelessness, which gives way to apathy and denial. Apathy and denial become ways to protect oneself from blame or more hopelessness. It is a vicious cycle.
Denial is not the answer and it has never fixed anything. Eventually something comes up to disturb the thin shield it seems to provide. In spite of Peterâ€™s denial, I still reigned supreme and his life gave glory to My name. So will yours.
After all, I am the Resurrection and the Life (John 11:17). All things submitted to Me are transformed and changed. Even dead seeds, dreams and unbelief become soft clay in My capable hands. I use everything and I mean everything in your life.
Once again My love, are there promises in your life you have neglected or forgotten? Have you looked at them and declared yourself incapable of doing what I have spoken or believed those desires you have for the ones you love cannot be? Of course they can be. They can be because I AM and because I love you. What other reason do you need?
Beloved, I count you worthy and My grace is sufficient in your weaknessâ€”in your inability. In your weakness I am strong (2 Corinthians 12:9; 1 Corinthians 1:27) If this werenâ€™t so I wouldnâ€™t have given Myself as an offering for your lifeâ€”or your purpose.
Just remember, everyone has failed and fallen short of the glory of God at some time or another (Romans 3:22-24). Forgive yourself and others for today is a new day. Today is a day that dry bones become a living army. Have a change of heart based on My faithfulness. Yes, have My heart and you will embrace My perspective on failure. Failure is only a course correction. It is a sign saying, â€śStop, yield and go My way.â€ť Today is your day of resurrected course correction. Have faith, for I have gone before to order your steps (Proverbs 20:24)… Read Complete Love Letter…
â€śThis righteousness from God comes through faith in Jesus Christ to all who believe. There is no difference, for all have sinned and fall short of the glory of God, and are justified freely by his grace through the redemption that came by Christ Jesusâ€ť (Romans 3:22-24 NIV)
Lord, you are my dream makerâ€¦my dream fulfiller in every way. There is none like You. When my hope has become deferred, denial and apathy can become ways for me to escape looking at areas of struggle. Please forgive me for having a heart of apathy in any area of my life. Forgive me for thinking denial will somehow save me from having to deal with thingsâ€¦somehow save me from any pain. True to Your Word, You never quit working in my life and out of Your love, mercy and grace You allow things to come up and disturb my false sense of peace. Denial is indeed a thin and deceptive shield which solves absolutely nothing.
This day, I choose to look to Youâ€¦to look to Your resurrection power and might on my behalf. You are committed to seeing me through to victory and gave the ultimate cost to do so. I must not treat what you have done lightly. You are right. I can do nothing myself. All must be done by Your Spirit in order to really overcome. You care for me and those I love. All is possible with you. Therefore, I receive Your grace today and come into agreement with Your Word. You are sufficient in my weaknessâ€¦in my inability. I release all my failuresâ€¦in all my failures in the areas of my most consistent struggles. I declare I am an overcomer and You have put me on the right course. I yield and go Your way. Thank you for going before me to order my steps. Lead and I will follow. Amen.
Reflect and Journal
1. Do you walk in denial or apathy in any area of your life?
2. What is your most common struggle that you have endeavored to overcome for a long time? Is it personal or in relation to seeing a promise fulfilled in your life or in the life of someone you love?
3. Do you believe He can resurrect your dreams no matter how many times the results have declared otherwiseâ€¦not matter the times you feel you have failed? If not, ask yourself whyâ€¦what is the core unbelief issue keeping you back from His promise?
4. Where has apathy slipped into your heart? What situation or attitude gave it an open door?
5. Journal on what it means for Him to make you strongâ€¦for His grace to be sufficient. In order to believe His grace is sufficient, you must know beyond a shadow of a doubt how much He loves you regardless of your mistakes or failures? Do you know this?
You are My Abraham, a contender of the faith in this generation. What you do and believe matters, having the power to bring life-changing effects to those around you-those you see and those you will never see until that day.
When I moveâ€¦when I speakâ€¦when I determineâ€¦when I arrange, you will be entangled in a divine entanglement of My will and purpose for your life. You will be consumed with my fire and zeal. When the world looks at you, what will they see? They will see you reflecting My Kingdom. What they see will appeal to them. What they see will draw them into Me.
