An Eternal Perspective

Let Me help you see things as I do. I have told you that My ways are higher than your ways and so they are. Part of the reason that My thoughts are higher than your thoughts is because I am not confined to time as you are. Time is a created thing. When I look at you I see perfection. The reality of who you have been, and what you have done, do not trump the truth of who you are in Me. Although your body and mind are bound in time, your spirit is eternal.

From your perspective you experience process; from My perspective I experience product. The finished work of the cross is being made complete in your life and life circumstances and is also complete already. Cut yourself free from the pressures of the clock. Get an eternal, it is finished, perspective.

You are My sons and My daughters! What you will be has not been made known in this earth realm, but in the realm of eternity I see it clearly. There is no sin in Me. My Spirit lives in you freeing you from the power of sin and death. You have My seed on the inside of you and therefore you will not go on sinning. You have My love in you and therefore you will love as I love. Why do you doubt My power to save, purify and empower you to be as I am?

Have you seen Me? Those that believe in the Son believe in Me; those that know the Son know Me; those that love the Son love Me. If you believe in Me you will not believe the lies of your circumstances that seek to convince you that I am not good. If you know Me you know that My heart is to do you good and not evil all of the days of your life. And if you believe in, know and love Me you will hear My voice. Those that hear My voice and follow Me do not recognize a strangers voice and do not follow it.

Come away with Me into our secret place and let Me show you who you are in Me. Bear hardship as discipline. Get an eternal perspective. Let the anxiety and fear associated with the boundaries you are experiencing because of what appears incomplete or imperfect ‘in time’ roll over onto My shoulders and let Me expand your view of the eternity I have placed within your heart: eternal perfection and completeness, eternal purity and glory, eternal wholeness and unity. We are one.

You Have Everything You Need

I have given you power. Within you resides the power to have an abundant life. What you choose to focus your attention on will be magnified in its power over you. Focus your attention on Me, the only safe option. Anything else that you allow to control you will destroy you. When you fix your eyes on the unseen realm, instead of staring at the painful circumstances or lack that you are experiencing in the natural realm, you will find that abundance is the truth.

I understand the way you feel when you are in agonizing pain at the hands of those that do not recognize who you are or understand what they do, struggle against temptation and wonder where I am in the midst of it all. I do. I will show you the way if you will follow Me.

Yes, there is a time to mourn, but there is also a time to dance. Rise up by putting a song of praise in your heart and My Words in your mouth. Stand firm in the liberty I give you by setting your mind on My Spirit; it will bring life and peace to you. Train your mind not to settle around the issues in your life that you are believing Me to change.

As a foreman studies the construction plans and gathers the building materials to prepare for creating what has been given to him in blue prints, so should you dig into My Word and apply it to your life. Why stand beside the half-finished project wailing that you do not have all that you need to finish? Did you not consider the cost of following Me, as I instructed, before you set to work? It will cost you everything. If you have lack, it is not on My end. What are you holding back from Me? I am the One that created the blue print for your life and it is I that have promised to be the Author and the Finisher. I have given you everything you need to complete the project I designed. I will provide every tool, every material and every helper that is needed.

If you are focusing your attention on point A, instead of on Me, you can miss hearing Me say what you need is at point B. Keep moving forward towards Me in love and trust.

Many of you are unable to receive what you need for the next step of the project because your hands are full of the stuff of life I have told you to take your hands off of. Let it go in order to receive from Me. I assure you, none of the lack you are experiencing is from My hands. I give life and life abundant and everything that is needed to accomplish all that I have commissioned you to do.

Check the blue print, make sure it is My Word. Check the foundation, make sure it is My life. Check your life, make sure you are holding nothing back. Your pain does not come from Me.

Decisions?

Do you want to know the direction I am asking you to take but are feeling confused? Confusion does not come from Me. I am not the author of confusion. You have taken hit after hit in recent months from the enemy camp and kept your hope anchored in Me. I have taken notice of your commitment to serve Me and move at the impulse of My love.

I know how you long to know My will and make the correct decisions. You have spent a great deal of time and prayer looking for the answers. I have given you some instructions; which steps to take that are directly in front of you. For now, I am asking you to let it rest. Let your mind rest from trying to figure out exactly when and how I intend to move you forward in the coming weeks. There is nothing more that needs to be decided this week on this matter. I want you to focus all of your energies on being thankful. Trust Me and do not be afraid that the answer will not come loud and clear at the precise moment I desire it too.

I love that you seek answers that I have concealed. I am veiling things for your own protection. By now you know that you can trust Me, then Way, when you can’t see far off in the distance. I have asked you to walk by faith. Confusion doesn’t come from Me. You have asked Me for direction. You have asked Me to make your way clear. I have heard your prayers and have sent forth My Word to illuminate the path beneath your feet. For today and in the days ahead My Word to you is ‘Rejoice!’ Rejoice in the peace that I have all of the details of your life figured out. Rejoice in the truth that I love you and have good plans to prosper you. Prosperity is your portion. There will be no dwindling of your resources as you have feared. Do not hold back your offering of thanks now. I have spoken:

Those who sow with tears
will reap with songs of joy.
  Those who go out weeping,
carrying seed to sow,
will return with songs of joy,
carrying sheaves with them.

You are coming into a new season; of this you have felt certain for some time. Do what I have placed right before you on your path with the most excellent and diligent of care as one awaiting their promotion. Hum and sing and make music in your heart to Me, your Redeemer and the Promoter of your life. Share a smile just for Me knowing that we share secrets. What others might not fully realize, although they are starting to expect, is that you hold the keys to My Kingdom in your hands. Praise Me and show Me your appreciation by scattering your seed along the path where I am leading you. 

 

I Make All Things New

My sweet, sweet, child, I know the weight that you are carrying. I long for you to cast your care on Me and let Me help you shoulder the load. It is too heavy for you to carry alone. Who in all the world can you depend on like you can depend on Me? I have said if someone forces you to go one mile, go with them two, and you have gladly done as I commanded.

You never imagined in all your hoping that what was thought to be one of the greatest gifts from My hand would demand that you climb the heights of a snow covered mountain. You realized in triumphant wonder one day you’d reached the top only to turn around and notice you can’t see the good that has been done; you look around and assume you’re stuck on the top of a mountain in a snow storm. My warmth radiating from the inside of you feels no match for the harsh and freezing conditions around you.

You look around for shelter. Come to Me; I alone can shelter you from the elements that you still believe are beyond your control. You search the outskirts of the terrain for anything you can gather to build something suitable for a fire. Yes! Look around. What do you see that you can surrender to the flames of My love? Ask Me to show you what useful thing you have to offer and as cold as it feels, gather the things I show you and build a fire. The warmth that you seek will not be found in the hearts of your companions at this time, turn away from all distractions and give yourself fully to the task at hand.

You are faced with an icy environment, having been led a long and steep path, following the way of love. You have been led, not to the fruitful valley that you had imagined you were to find, but to a place not fit for human habitation. There were glimpses on the way building your hope for the glorious oasis you were certain was just around the next bend, but now, for days on end, you see nothing but ice.

The world can be so cold, you think. Where is the love that you seek? Where is the life that you long for? Where is the hand that you can hold in unity of mind and spirit, devoid of the cruelty of betrayal? Turn away from these questions now. Turn towards Me, the answer to all questions, and the fulfillment of all dreams. Ask Me to show you what more I want you to give. I am going to show you something completely new; something you hadn’t thought of yet, or not for a long time. ‘Give more when giving has brought me to this eerie place, where without the hope in what I can imagine, everything looks grey and dull?’

Do not be afraid of losing your faith. Even when you are faithless, I am faithful.

Right now, ask Me. Turn away from asking questions of those that are themselves part of your problem, and ask of Me, your solution. I do not want your love to run cold because of your surroundings. Together we will build a fire out of the more I have provided for you to give.

Don’t seek to warm yourself in the embrace of those whose love knows not the warmth of My touch. In your current condition, don’t feel responsible for being their source of heat. I am going to build a fire right in front of your eyes out of those things that I ask you to sacrifice to Me that will melt not only the ice and snow around you as the storm passes by, but will bring warmth to all that step on the path you are walking with Me. Look at your life. Would you hold back burning what could produce a blazing fire on the heights of a snow covered mountain when your very life depended on it?

Ask Me. I will be candid and specific. Obey, and then sit back and watch the scene change like a fast forward time-lapse of the changing of the seasons. It will be no miracle. You’ve been allowing the conditions to take you backwards to a time in your life when I was not known by you like I now am. I am simply going to reverse the lag created by the fear of future outcomes looking like the past.
I make all things new!

‘Do not merely listen to the word, and so deceive yourselves. Do what it says.’ –James 1:22

There Are No Set Backs

I am accelerating the work that I am doing in your circumstance. What would have taken 10 years, without the added pressure of My touch, will be completed in 10 months. Can you take the heat? Certainly you can! I have worked with you to increase your capacity to stand the pressure without cracking. Do not say that you can’t handle one more disappointment or one more step back. Take your expectations off of the process lining up with your need to be in control, and place them onto My promise to answer your earnest and heartfelt prayers of faith.

There are no setbacks. You are experiencing set ups. Each imperfection that comes to the surface is, by its nature, going to produce feelings of angst. These emotions are only markers of what needs to be laid on the altar; guideposts of what not to carry into the future.

‘What is this?!’ You will think, and wonder why I am not blocking the intrusion on your righteousness, peace, and joy. My answer is that these are those things that are no longer useful being brought to the surface. I must remove them from your heart and life for you to move forward in My Kingdom.

Recognize that even when you see dark spot after dark spot bubbling up from the depths of your lives and relationships, My goodness is at work.

Many wounds are healed in layers.

Keep your eyes open for the ways that I will redeem your mistakes, and the mistakes of others, as you exercise audacious faith in My being your Vindicator and Redeemer. Let Me lift the burden. Cast the care of your weakness onto My strong shoulders. It brings My heart delight to turn those mistakes into doorways of blessing for you and others. Receive My grace and watch it in action. Laugh in the face of the accusations of the enemy that says you have blown it.

Boldly asked Me to bless your mess.

OK, got it for yourself? Do you feel better just knowing that I have your back? Now, turn this hope outward towards those on your path that need the same faith from you to believe that I can work miracles out of their wobbly attempts at obedience and sometimes half-hearted efforts at perfection. Look deeper than the surface and wider than the day. Have they really made so little progress as you imagine?

Set yourself free from living under the microscope of scrutiny that imagines I am so small that I am unable to work all things for good. Examine your heart and life before Me; accept My rebuke, then receive My encouragement and restoration. Remember the cross and My promise of redemption. Apply My blood to your sins and transgressions. Claim the redemption of the cross for all of life’s circumstances. Let the anxiety of your imperfections, imperfect relationships, and the imperfect circumstances you find yourself in drive you closer into My heart. Do this and be change from glory to glory.

Enjoy the glory you’re in!

Accept others in their current level of glory. Preach the word; be prepared in season and out of season; correct, rebuke and encourage – with great patience and careful instruction. Don’t let anyone tell you that you shouldn’t try to change someone else! You are created in My image. Do not use manipulation and control- this is witchcraft. Use My Word, My Wisdom, and My Spirit. Let me change you. Let Me use you to change the world.

Now is the Day of Salvation

No more waiting for the fulfillment of that which was promised to you. Today is the day of your salvation. What the enemy has toiled and maneuvered and manipulated to thwart in your life is not being held back by My hand. Reach out with your arms of faith and take hold of that which is already yours. Not tomorrow, not a week from now, but today. This very day what has been stored up for you is being poured out in abundance over your life. The scales from your eyes are falling off. Your preconceived ideas as to how I would answer the deepest cries of your heart are being removed so that you can perceive My goodness that is already in your midst.

Don’t look back. Yesterday is gone. The pain of yesterday is over. Feel it no more. Root out any false belief that you owe those things that are now dead your mourning. You owe nothing to anyone except a continued debt of love. Love on. Live on. Move on.

Love endures all things, this is your day to believe that the death you have endured, was to build your faith to believe, that what I have put in your lap is the beginning of the fulfillment of My promises to you.

I am proud of you and pleased with you. You have learned to follow the signs that I have placed along your path and My Spirit that I have placed within your hearts with less hesitation. The thoughts that contradict what I have shown you don’t hold the power to create fear in you as they once did. Now you are able to walk by faith! Open your eyes of faith wide and take in the scene before you. Do you see what I see? The possibilities unfolding before you, the path straightening beneath your feet, your provision in full view of those beautiful eyes of faith that you now see by, unimpeded by the fear of death?

Feel the bubbling brook of joy and the waves of peace. These are the indicators that what you are believing for you’re are receiving. Follow joy. Follow peace. Let the dead bury their own dead. No more mourning for those things that were brought into your life only to prepare you for this day. Again I say, NOW is the day of salvation. Do not pray, ‘Come quickly Lord.’ I am here with you already. Pray, “Your Kingdom come, Your will be done’ and open your eyes and see the truth of My Kingdom and My will being made manifest in your life.

Your Life is a Grand Adventure!

Trust Me and do not be afraid. Trust in the ability I have given to you to be led by My Spirit. Do not allow doubt and unbelief to cause you to second guess yourself after you have made a decision by My guidance.

The enemy wants to tie your emotions up in knots; to riddle you with anxiety by causing you to worry that I am not the one leading you, and that the steps you are taking will lead you into failure and defeat. These are lies sent to infiltrate your mind and draw your thoughts away from Me and My plan; from peace.

The moment you feel yourself sinking and second guessing yourself, draw away into the secret place of solitude with Me. Even if you only have moments or minutes, focus your eyes on the cross and listen as I bring My Word up from your spirit into your mind. Take those words and meditate on them until they calm the waves of worry that threaten My rightful place in your heart.

Do you need conformation that the decision you have made is by My guidance? Ask Me and I will graciously give to you all that you need to walk forward in confidence. I take no delight in seeing My children confused and taking steps of obedience in fearful reluctance because they desire to please and follow Me but are afraid of falling into a trap. My Word is a light to your feet and a lamp for your path. You are not walking in darkness anymore. Step out in faith knowing that I will honor your genuine, heartfelt desire to please me, regardless of the possibility that you will take a misstep. Your wobbly steps of obedience can not mess up the good plan I have for your life.

As you move forward, letting go of what lies behind and pressing towards the good things that are ahead, your sight will improve. With each step of faith that you take, the path before you will appear brighter, for you will gain confidence in Me as you see Me cause all things to work together for your good. There are many things that will remain obscured from your view until the appointed time. I won’t reveal them to you until you are ready.

Seek My face and not just My hand.

Do you need a sign? Ask for one. And then put aside all preconceived ideas of what I plan to do, how I plan to do it, and who I plan to do it through and watch. Wait for me to confirm the steps you are to take. As you lay aside all of your preferences, My hand will move to reveal My ways. Keep in mind that My ways are above your ways. I will show you which way you are to go, but I will not always show you more than a few steps ahead on your path. If I did this, the command for you to walk by faith would not be necessary. As it is, you must walk by faith, that at the next turn I will be there too, showing you the next step; teaching you which choice is right for you on that next leg of our journey.

Your life is a grand adventure! Do not let the threats of danger cause you to recoil from the challenge to plow ahead. I have provided all that you need to live a victorious life in Me.

The provision and relationships that you need will meet you along the way. There is no need to horde today’s provision for fear of tomorrow. Give freely as I lead, without fear of lack.

Let go of those people and situations that are no longer producing life. Allow me to cut away those things that are dead. Do not cling to the corpses of the past. Release your past and past relationships into My loving hands. I will either bring those dead things back to life and restore them to you along the way, as I see fit, or I will bring you into new life in another way.

You must let go of what is dead. I am the God of the living.

Have no opinion as to how I am going to meet your needs. Know only that l, beyond a shadow of a doubt, am meeting all of your needs according to My riches and glory. Taste and see that I am good.

No More Agony

My Words to you are healing and they are life. When you open the Bible and read, you are reading My love letter to you. I have tucked away many life-giving promises in My Word. Seek Me there; seek Me with your whole heart and you will find Me. There are promises that I have provided to encourage you and build your faith that I am handling all of the circumstances that you face; working to bring about the changes and healing that your heart longs for both in your own life and the life of your loved one.

Give Me your attention. Focus your mind on Me and delve into the Words that I have given you. They are life. They will bring life to your mortal body and into the body of your loved one.

Speak to Me in the morning, as you walk on your way during the hours of your day, and as you prepare to sleep at night. Ask Me for what you need. Do you need more faith? Faith comes by hearing and hearing by the Word. Meditate on My Word day and night.

As you shift your focus from the problems that surround you and the enemies that seem to be knocking at your door, you’re going to have a whole new perspective; My perspective. You will find there is nothing to fear.

I love you. I love those that are dear to your heart. My love is perfect and without defect. Give yourself and your loved one completely into My hands.

Hold onto My promises.

Let go of the cares and worries that are choking out the peace and joy that I have given you. I give you peace that passes all understanding. It is yours right now, not tomorrow, not when healing has already manifested in the natural realm on your behalf, but right now.

I am. I am whatever it is you need Me to be.

I have promised to meet all of your needs. Do you believe that I desire to meet all of your needs? Believe My Words and your prayers will prosper. You’re persistence in prayer pleases Me. Deep within your heart you know that I am a rewarder of those that diligently seek Me. Your diligence will pay off. I have dispatched My angels on your behalf. Don’t doubt for one instant. My ears have not been deaf to your cries for relief. My Spirit is hovering over those things which concern you and breathing My life into them; creating an outcome far better than you can even right now imagine.

Patiently await the appointed time of your deliverance. It will not come one minute too late.

Prepare your heart by spending time with Me and follow Me by acknowledging Me in all of your ways. I am making your path straight. I am healing those things that you are holding before Me in your heart in prayer.

No more agony. Taste and see that I am good. You will not be denied.

Doors Will Be Opened

Run towards the goals and visions that I have placed in your heart with unflinching faith. I am only placing a bridge under your feet for the next couple of steps in front of you. Do not wait for the waters to dry up, the mountains to be moved, or for an opening in the wall that rises up to block your progress.

Move confidently and joyfully forward and trust that when you reach the waters, they will dry up or part; when you come to a mountain, it will be cast into the sea or I will give you wings to soar above its heights; the walls that seem to be barriers to your progress will crumble with your shouts of praise, or a door will appear at the exact moment you are about to be stopped by the blockade.

Sing and praise; use the words of your mouth and the meditation of your heart to co-create with Me all of the good things I have in mind to do in and through you. Allow the obstacles and challenges that you encounter to purify your heart and draw you closer to me. Seek first My kingdom and My righteousness and All of these things will be added to you as well. With every bit of increase, sow the first fruits into My Kingdom and watch in amazement as I multiply back to you what your seed, watered by faith in My word, will bring forth in your life.

Give and it will be given.

Bless those that come against you and do not curse them. Trust in my ability to bring justice into your life. Do not expect people to pay you back. I am the keeper of all of your accounts and as you release your enemies in love, I will be released to settle their accounts against you, in My way and in My time. Be on the lookout for how I will be restoring to you what has been stolen in this last season. Remain faithful to me, even when you are surrounded by those that are unfaithful.

Give yourself fully to the work of My Kingdom. Know that even in the areas of your life that are ‘unspiritual’ I am there and want to use you as a container for My glory in the earth. I have placed you in dark places to be a light; a beacon of hope to a lost and dying world. Let My hope fill you as you look to me to meet all of your needs. Come to me for refreshing. Rest with me and be still. Be still and know that I am God. I am the One that meets all of your needs.

Do not neglect to ask Me, even about the small and simple things in your life. Ask Me for wisdom and insight into your dealings and open your eyes to the varied ways I will be speaking to you the things that you need to hear to be clear as to the direction I am leading you.

One step at a time.

One day at a time.

March forward with unflinching faith.

Mountains will crumble.

Waters will part.

Doors will be opened.

A New Level of Glory

I see that you have been striving to reach perfection. Know this, that in Me, you have already been made perfect. Rest in the perfection imparted to you by the finished work of the cross. I am in you and you are in me and because you are hidden with Christ in heavenly places, you have his sufficiency in all that you do and are. Draw on My perfection and you will see it being made complete through your natural life.

There is no obstacle, no sin, no fear, no doubt, no lack, no trespass, no insufficiency in my life and you have died and my life is being manifested through you. Rise up in my power and in my faith that I have imparted unto you.

Ask and it will be given. Seek and you will find. Know that in all things I am working for your good. Your desire to please me in all things brings joy to my heart. You are my precious child and there is nothing or no one that can snatch you out of my hand. You are not subject to the whims of mere mortals. I am the immortal God and I am still on the throne. Nothing can touch you without first being filtered through my perfect love. Do not tire of hearing me say this. Believe it. Let it sink deep down into the depths of your being. I am perfect love. I love you perfectly. You are mine. You are under my protection and there is nothing that can harm you.

You can’t even begin to imagine the magnitude of the tidal wave of blessing that is rushing towards you as we speak. Do you see the waves crashing towards you? Do not fear the waves! They carry with them an anointing of my power and provision like you have never experience before. You will look back at this season as the launching pad of the best years of your life. You have been tested and tried. You have made yourself pliable in my hands. It is time to be released into greater things; greater measures of abundance; faith, love, joy, peace, provision, relationship and fulfilment of promise are upon you now. You sense it by the very strength you are experiencing in the midst of difficult circumstances. You have entered a new level of glory.

Pause and meditate on my perfect love, and peace will flood your heart and mind. You are perfect in my sight. Enjoy the ways that I am working out my perfection in your natural life.
