“All the women who were willing used their skills” Exodus 35:26
Every day. My Beloved, every day you pray. You seek My face and My will. Every day you ask for Me to open you up and pour My Spirit in. Every day.
Every day you ask for Me to guide your path, to lead your feet and use your words as My own – to “speak My Truth with boldness, clarity and conviction”. You ask Me EVERY DAY. How can I not answer a prayer like that? How could you even consider the idea that I wouldn’t answer the prayer I GAVE YOU IN THE FIRST PLACE? Every day you ask, and I listen. I hear your prayer and I lead you in the way that you should go. And while you may not like where I’m leading you, you’ve faithfully followed My lead every step of the way, even when it’s been hard. Yes, I’ve seen you. I’ve seen your struggles and your tears. I have heard your cry for help and your desperate plea for deliverance. Just because I’m waiting doesn’t mean I’m not listening or answering, it just means you’re not done there yet. And you know that Beloved.
Sweetheart, you can do this. Remember? “You CAN do all things through Christ who gives you strength.” Your faithfulness has not been un-noticed and will not go un-rewarded. I promise. I love obedience. And I am the One who can do exceedingly, abundantly, above all that you could ask or imagine. I have asked you to imagine BIG and with that has come much pain and heartache as you wait day by day for the fulfillment of those visions. I am not unfeeling to this pain that I have caused you. Please be patient with Me as I work behind the scene to unfold the most glorious thing you’ve ever seen in your entire life. You’ve heard time and again the phrase, “take up your cross daily”. And while there are days when your cross is heavier than you’d like, it is never anything more than the Light I’ve asked you to shine in this world. It’s nothing more than to follow My lead and to play your part in this valley of the shadow of death. Notice, it’s not the Valley of Death, it’s the Valley of the SHADOW of Death. That is all that it is, a mere shadow with neither the substance to kill nor the ability. I know that shadows can be scary at times, but they often appear much larger than they really are. Satan loves to blow things out of proportion and you all love to let him. DON’T.
I say “Every day” and remind you again of your own faithfulness to a simple prayer I gave you years ago. It’s simple yet, even you can feel its power. There is power in simplicity. My Dearest One, you are human and yet faithful to a simple daily prayer, reading and blog; how much MORE FAITHFUL do you think I can be??? More than you could ask or imagine My Child. So. Much. More. I know that keeping all these balls juggling in the air has been difficult for you, fear not, I am with you and I will uphold you with My righteous right hand. I adore you my Beloved One. You know that don’t you? I really do. It’s not just something I say, it’s something I mean.
I love you!
I LOVE you!
I love YOU!
