Cast Your Care

Stop trying to take care of yourself and let Me take care of you. You fret and worry; plan and connive, all the while I stand patiently waiting for you to turn your ear to My Words to you.

My words are life and will be a light showing you the way you are to walk.

Your worry offends Me.

Do you not understand that I have worked out every last detail in a plan of care for you and the ones you love?

Cast your care on Me.

I am not asking you to abdicate your responsibility, but to stop carrying the burden of care that weighs you down and steals your joy and hopeful anticipation.

And After The Flood, New Life

In some areas of your life you have felt as if you are just drifting along, being carried by the current of circumstances that are beyond your control. In many ways your understanding of your life has been incredibly limited. At times you feel that I have just been allowing you to tread water indefinitely, with no real purpose or end in sight.

What you see as drifting, I see as positioning. I have told you before that your circumstances are not random, and indeed they are not. I am proud of you; you have finally stopped thrashing about as if you were drowning and remembered that I am with you in all things. But you are to grow further, past simply recognizing that I am here and still working behind the scenes, into a place where you recognize that each situation, relationship and trial has been specifically designed to show you something about yourself that you would not have otherwise realized.

Things are beginning to come into focus as you look back and remember how everything that I have walked you through, impurities in your character, and imbalances in your life, were brought into the light and dealt with.

Turn around and see all the dead weight that has been shed throughout the years!

You are not endlessly drifting!

You have been afloat on the ocean of my love. With each storm you have sought out those things within your spirit that weigh you down and holds you back and have cast them overboard.

Look behind you. Do you see the trail of useless things floating away on the currents of life as you sail into the sun, light and free? The darkest nights of the soul, the fiercest tempest, have made you brave and strong, recognizing that which no longer serves a purpose in your life and casting it aside.

Now, not only do you realize that I am with you, but that I am not asleep in the boat.

All power has been given to me in heaven and earth.

I am not only with you, I am for you. I have been preparing you for something greater than you can even now imagine.

Can you see now why I have commanded you to rejoice in your sufferings? The hope that you now have can not be taken from you!

Now prepare yourself. Brace yourself. Raise your level of expectation higher than you have dared to raise it before, because coming into your life this year is a flood of blessing; a harvest from the seeds of faithfulness that you have planted and cultivated these long years.

Look around you now, whatever lingering habits, relationships, or activities that are pointlessly taking up space and choking out life, toss them overboard. I declare today is the day of power to solidify your will against all that clogs the wells of life from springing up within you.

As in the days of Noah, when I caused a flood to rain out of heaven and water to spring forth from the earth to destroy what had been formerly created so that life could begin again through the righteous man, Noah, and his family, so is the floods that have been allowed into your life.

Only the relationships and provision that I have ordained for you will be carried into the new life I am creating, and as with Noah, I have supernaturally brought to you those things which you need for success and survival.

You have believed my promises and held tight to the dreams and visions that I have placed within your heart, sacrificing many of the comforts and securities that come from relying, not on Me, but on your own understanding.

Your faith will be richly rewarded.

Step out of the boat and onto dry land. Receive unimpeded a new life full of grace, provision, favor, creative power, divine connections and relationships, healing power and fullness of joy.

I Will Fulfill Your Deepest Desires

Draw near to Me and I will draw near to you. Give me your attention.

Remove your misplaced expectations towards others and place all your expectations on Me. I alone know what it is you need at any given time and I have promised to meet all of your needs.

There is nothing in this world that will fill the void I created in you. I created you for Myself and it is in Me alone that you will find rest. The deepest longing of your heart is to be with Me; in intimate relationship and abiding with Me you will have passionate, lasting satisfaction for your souls.

Come to Me with a thankful heart. Your attitude of gratitude will peel the scales from your eyes and you will see Me in the midst of your trials.

I am near to you always; in all things I never leave your side. I stand beside you watching your fruitless search for life outside of Me. I am with you in all things. I know your inner thoughts and am there with you time and time again as you seek solace and love apart from Me.

It hurts My heart to watch you groping around in the darkness for something to latch onto; something that will relieve the ache of your brokenness.

Time and time again you return to broken cisterns for a drink to quench your endless thirst. Why do you refuse to come to Me and drink? I will give you living water.

Drink the water I will give you and you will never thirst again.

You chase after the best that this world has to offer, seeking excitement and adventure, never comprehending that the path I call you to walk is the ultimate adventure. The story that I am writing is the only story worth spending your life for.

Do you think I don’t know what I created you for? Do you think I have not written a part for you in My story that far surpasses your fumbling efforts to make a life for yourself?

You hold on to your life, and in the process you lose not only your life, but your very self.

Do you not know apart from Me you can do nothing? Give up! Give up seeking solace in worldly pleasures. They are fleeting and bring no lasting satisfaction. Each compromise draws you further from yourself; further away from me.

I promise to provide pleasures and to satisfy your souls with good things from my overflowing storehouse of blessings. My supply never runs dry. I created you. I placed specific desires within your heart. I alone am the way to fulfill those deep desires.

Follow me and I will lead you. Drop your defenses. Abandon your pointless plans; they will only lead to your destruction. Pray for an increase of faith and for healing from the misconceptions you have held for far too long about Me.

I am good. I am love. I have your best interests at heart. Believe My words, obey My words, and you will find the life you long for.

A Life Upgrade

I am upgrading your life.

You have been ordering off the dollar menu long enough.

You have been trying to purchase for yourself, out of your little, the things that you need for a full and victorious life.

Instead, offer your little to Me and receive in exchange all that I Am.

Through My death and resurrection I have purchased fullness of life for all who come to Me.

I care about your health; mentally, physically and spiritually and long to infuse each area of Your life with My healing and strength.

I have the provision you need to accomplish all that I have called you to do with excellence.

Your unbelief and fear are blocking the flow of My life to and through you. I need you to believe in and trust in My words to you completely. You have already seen what your unbelief and fear have purchased in your life. Now watch and see what manifests when you place your confidence fully in Me and My word.

Begin by bringing the worthless currency of worry, unbelief and fear to Me and exchanging them for an impartation of My Spirit’s anointing that will bring you into a level of gift faith greater than you have ever experienced.

Much of what you have believed to be faith in your life has been a counterfeit. I have been stripping you of this false faith that you have clung to; faith in your abilities to accomplish anything of value apart from Me.

“I am the vine; you are the branches. If you remain in me and I in you, you will bear much fruit; apart from me you can do nothing.’
-John 15:5

The Maze

I see a large maze from a top view. Lots of paths with dead ends, lots of doors leading to nowhere. There is a person fumbling along through the maze. They realize there is a definite destination, and that the destination is good, and that the only way to get there is to go through the maze; taking wrong turns, making u turns, opening pointless doors.

After seeing the person moving through the maze, going down corridors, opening and going into different doors for some time, I notice that they now have a blind fold on. They are still having to feel their way through, but are beginning to realize they are blindfolded and completely blind to where they are going.

Realizing this helps them. They pause to assess the situation. They realize the blindfold is to train their ability to be led by spiritual, instead of physical, eyes.

I see a lot less pointless searching. Less frustration. Less frantic looking. Less anxiety. A door is opened, stepped into even, but instead of plowing ahead there is a pause. There is no need to go further because of a knowing, apart from sight, or even touch, that the door leads to nowhere.

Back in the hallway the person grows silent and contemplative, slowly beginning to trust their ability, until eventually they are at a complete stand still. They stand waiting; listening.

Measured, but confident steps, are taken down the corridor, hands still feeling the surrounding walls until they stop confused by the wall mounting up from the floor directly in front of them.

Standing in front of the wall a recognition that the path is straight through the wall arises. Hands pressing, groping for a possible lever that might open a hidden door finally fall to their side, defeated.

Having grown more confident in the silences, they listen. With a deep breath they step forward, straight into the wall, straight through the wall-it parts to make a way before them.

Things begin to make sense; the maze,the doors that lead to nowhere; the dead ends; the blindfold; they are all for training.

I still see the person in the maze from above, but I shift perspectives and see the blindfolded persons’s point of view:

They are being led by a Light. No walls, doors or corridors exist for them.

There is only darkness and Light.

They are learning to follow The Light.

I Am The Great Physician

Do not ignore emotional pain when it grips your heart. Pain is a symptom of injury. I am the Great Physician. Do you believe that I desire to heal you? Do you believe I love those you love even more than you do and desire that they be healed and delivered too?

Just as you would make an appointment and rearrange your schedule to visit a physician when you have a physical injury or illness and the symptoms persist, so you must learn to schedule extra time with Me, the Great Physician, to receive the diagnosis, prescription and instructions I have for you that will lead to you or your loved ones healing.

If a doctor ordered nothing by mouth prior to a surgery would you plow ahead and eat a big meal? By no means! Neither should you ignore My leading to refrain from food when it comes. Often a time of fasting is needed to prepare the way for My healing touch. If you knew how many healings weren’t received simply because an intercessor ignored My call to lay aside food, you would never again consider it a small thing to serve your bellies over Me.

Just as you would go out of your way to take an ailing loved one to see a specialist when their bodies are failing them, in spiritual matters you must be willing to bring the wounds and burdens of others to Me.

In My Presence, listening to My voice, I will lead you into all truth. Ask Me to reveal the source of your pain and I will. When you begin to understand the root of the symptoms of your pain, you can then ask Me for what you want specifically. I desire an intimate friendship with you. Take time with Me and we will discuss My plans for healing and redemption.

Do not be afraid of pain. Pain is only temporary and I am able to do amazing things for you and through you as you begin to understand the benefits of paying attention to what your pain is trying to show you.

Some things I am able to heal instantly because of the great faith of the one that requests. Other ills require following My specific instructions, and the passage of time. Spend time with Me and your faith will grow.

I understand that some wounds are deep and festering with decay from years of neglect; years of running. Many addictions are formed by those seeking relief from their pain. In seeking shelter elsewhere and in detaching from ones heart through addiction, pain can be temporarily numbed. Addiction is just a modern word for idolatry. Until one is willing to recognize that something is terribly wrong and come to understand it is only in Me that things can be made right, their soul will remain fractured.

It is not My will for My children to live with a spirit of heaviness and grief always looming over their life. If darkness and suffering have become your constant companions I desire to set you free but you must ask Me in faith, believing that I am able to deliver you.

As I was on the earth, so am I now in you. Ask and you will receive. Listen to My voice and believe Me. By obeying My specific instructions you will experience the victory I secured for you on the cross in your own heart and in the hearts of those that I have given you.

I Believe In You Completely

How pleased I am when my children, in seasons where they can’t see My hand in their situations or feel My Presence in their hearts, continue to place their hope in Me and what they are convinced of about My character. I am not a man that I should lie. Do not attribute the disappointing traits of your earthly parents to Me. Spend time with Me letting Me show you the misconceptions you have about My nature. I believe in you completely.

I created you with a purpose. Do you think it is beyond My ability to use you for the purpose for which you were created? To do through you all that I have prepared in advance for you to do?

Spend time with Me letting Me show you the misconceptions you have about your own nature. You are a new creature. I have removed your heart of stone and replaced it with a heart of flesh. I have placed within you My own desires. Do not trust your flesh for a moment. Trust My Spirit that lives in you bringing life to your mortal body. Trust My ability in you to overcome the world, the flesh and the devil.

Your human weakness doesn’t intimidate Me. I am the Provision to deliver you from the power of sin.

I Am Enough

My Words are Life. When you feel as if the humdrum of everyday life threatens to eliminate your joy or sense of adventure, turn to Me and listen. When you feel something is lacking, look to Me. I am everything you need.

Do you not know how I long to infuse your life with sweet and intimate Romance? How the plans I have for you are uniquely designed to fulfill your longing to be a part of something greater than yourself? I fulfill the hearts desire to be swept up into a magnificent adventure. You have been rescued and delivered by Me, your Conquering Hero, set apart and made holy by My blood, trained and equipped to be sent forth as part of my Kingdom army.

My children that seek Me first find in Me all of the strength they need to apply the victory I secured for them through My sacrifice on the Cross. You are more than a conqueror!

Do not measure success as the world measures success. Follow Me. Learn of Me. Look to the Cross. I have plans that are perfectly designed so that nothing in your life has to be wasted. I have a strategy to turn all losses into gains.

Come to Me. Keep bringing your focus back to Me. Look to Me. Listen for My voice in all things. Oh how My heart longs for you to put your confidence in Me alone. My heart is blessed when you trust securely in my great love for you and My desire and ability to meet all of your needs.

Behold, I stand at the door and knock. If anyone hears my voice and opens the door, I will come in to him and eat with him, and he with me. -Revelation 3:20

A Vision of Victory

I had a vision of a blindfolded expert swordsman fighting with a sword in his left hand; feigning a yawn with his right before casually folding it behind his back. A group of rough looking bandits fall one by one as they breathlessly, and with all the strength they can muster, attack from every direction.

Enemies slain, he pulls the handkerchief away from his eyes and proceeds to step over and around the bodies, dabbing the ever so small drops of swear from his brow.

No big deal. Never a doubt. All his enemies under his feet.

The Desires of Your Heart Will Come to Pass

My Word to you today is abandon. Abandon your plans for success to Me. Show me that you trust Me by laying down your preconceived ideas about what success is. It hurts my heart to see you being so hard on yourself because of your perceived ‘failures.’ I know you better than you know yourself and I see your heart; your desire to please Me in all things. This desire pleases Me more than you can imagine. When a mother sees the effort of her young child striving in love and in a desire to please, does she resent or distain her children’s less than perfect efforts? No. Neither do I see in your earnest efforts to please Me any fault.

Daughter, abandon your ideas of what is beautiful. You have spent far too much of your life considering yourself of average beauty and judging your feelings of attractiveness by the worlds standards. You carry within you the reflection of My beauty. I created you to reflect to the world the feminine aspects of my nature. Where others have labeled you as overly emotional, I have seen the beauty of your tender heart, precious in My sight. You have considered your easily wounded heart as a burden, but I know the truth. Your heart is like the womb of a mother, filled with the possibilities of what the people and circumstances you encounter could be. The distance between what is and what could be is a matter of your willingness not to abort what I have deposited inside of you and instead nurture and nourish it through prayer and obedience. Your eagerness to labor and push at the appointed time, until what was once only the seeds of life are fully matured and birthed out of the supernatural into the natural world where their reality becomes visible to the human eye, pleases Me.

I have seen what you have carried within your heart in nights of weeping and days of fasting. I can see what is taking place in the unseen realm because of your faith and obedience to Me, even though you often feel there has been no return for your efforts to surrender all these years. Many of My most faithful disciples worked behind the scenes in my Kingdom, never having seen the great impact they were having on My world, but for you, My daughter, a day is coming and is very soon near when a harvest will be reaped in Your life that will lay to rest all of your doubts that the voice you have been following has been My voice and that the promises you have been clinging to were in fact, as you have always known in the depths of your being, My promises to you personally and specifically. From the moment I told you to ‘Wait’ and you said “Yes, Master’ I have not ceased working to bring about the miracles for which you have been waiting.

I know that you have not always waited as patiently or as perfectly as you desired to wait, but I see how you have, in each season and trial I have walked you through, sought the better part, the best that I have for you. The burden has been overwhelming for you at times I know, to the point that you have doubted your very sanity in believing Me and My voice, but your mind and your doubts have not stopped you from plowing ahead, sacrificing what seemed like your very sanity if need be to believe that which I have spoken to you will come to pass. Hold on because it is coming soon. The labor pains have been great. The lack you have perceived in your life seem like your constant reality. But I am coming with the provision that has been held back from you for these long years. When I move I will wipe away all lack and you will stand in awe of the harvest that is coming. The cornucopia of blessing that you have tasted in your inner life will be breaking forth into the natural realm.

You have held back from me long enough what is most useful to be used for the furthering of My Kingdom in your life, the things that you find most repulsive about your past. The flaws that you most despise in your life are gold in my Kingdom and can be used to purchase entrance into the lives of many of my wounded and lost children. Do not be ashamed any more. I have redeemed you. I have redeemed your past, your flaws, and your life. Climb out of your shell and put on the new life that I have died for you to have, full of provision; mind, body and spirit. No more eating the crumbs from the table. Pull up a chair and feast with me. I no longer call you a servant, but a friend. Today is the day that you step into your destiny. Ask whatever you will. Anything you need I will provide because I know that your desire is to be close to me always and to accomplish the work that I have prepared in advance for you to do. I crown you with new life. I am breathing on your life and all of the ashes of yesterday are being scattered to reveal the gold buried deep within you. Take your place at my side. Stop apologizing to Me and to yourself for all that you aren’t and focus your attention on all that I Am. Watch and see what I will do.

The desires of your heart will come to pass.
