Count the Stars

 

Count the Stars

Look up and count the stars my child and you will see that they are more than you can imagine. Yet even though they seem so vast, you are seeing but a pinprick of how many they really are. Can you imagine then how great I am? For you often feel limited in your circumstances and in your own strength, but you forget that I am unlimited!
I am vast and even though there are more stars than you can imagine, I hold them all in the palm of my hands. So trust in me child. Trust in my ability and in my power, for I am able to do above and beyond what you can imagine. If you continue to rest in my great strength, then you will not see your own weakness any longer.
When you look at my vastness, you will no longer feel your own limitation. For so often you limit yourself to your own abilities. You limit yourself to your circumstances and you limit yourself with your own thinking. I break the bounds of these limitations and have the ability to create new circumstances and to create new strengths in you.
So put away all your doubt this day. Take your eyes off your circumstances and off your fears. Put all your vision on to me. Put all your hope on to me and then you will find a peace enter your heart. As you rest in my peace and when you come to a place of true faith in me, then you will see the things that hinder you fall away. So come then and count the stars with me this day my child and experience the peace that I have waiting for you

Stay on Track

 

Stay on Track

Consider a train that is running on its track. It cannot suddenly jump off the track and run on the bare ground. In the same way I have you on a clear track for your life and if you would only trust the track that I have put you on, you will find yourself in the destination that I have planned. I know my child that sometimes the track feels unclear. It takes you through countrysides that are not familiar to you. Often you struggle to see the goal or even see where you have come from.
However the most important thing to do right now is to stay on track! Do not look back and do not look to the left or to the right, only look forward to the goal that is ahead. For soon you will see a new horizon and soon you will experience something wonderful. You will see that I have led you and when you stay on the track that I have made for you, you will reach your destination quickly.
It was the times you decided to get off track that the way became hard. It was the times you jumped the rails that suddenly your wheels could not turn and you found everything so difficult to do. So come and do things an easier way my child. Stay on the track that I have set before you and you will rise up quickly. Although you will not be in control, but giving me the control, you will move quickly towards the destination that I have for you says the Lord.



Get Off the Carouse Wheel

 

Get Off the Carouse Wheel

Just like the carouse wheel goes round and round, so also do you often find yourself going around and not understanding where you are meant to be says the Lord. You see the same problems again and again. You face the same failures and see the same scenery. All the while you are wondering where I am and where I will lead you next.
First I need to stop the turning my child and bring you to a place of peace. Only then will you see clear enough to take my hand so that I can lead you further. For the enemy has had you caught in a snare that he has controlled. He has bound you up with fears and struggles in your heart so that you continue to go in circles instead of seeing the straight and clear path that I have for you.
So take my hand now and step off the carouse wheel. Come and stand firmly and wait for me to give you direction. For when you try to run ahead or start to walk before I have given you the full picture, you will find yourself going in circles again. So trust in me and wait. Let me lead you. Even if things do not make sense or you cannot see what is ahead – wait! Wait for me to pick you up. Wait for me to lead you and open the doors for you. Just wait on me. When you wait on me, I will not lead you astray.
I will not cause you to go in circles again, but for the first time you will head towards your destination. So wait for my words. Wait for my confirmation and you will see that I have a clear road mapped out ahead of you. The time has come to move forward my child. To make progress and to succeed in the things I have promised you says the Lord. Amen

Let Me Position You

 

Let Me Position You

Consider how the clouds float carelessly above the ground. They are driven only by the winds that carry them. They float over land and sea with no seeming purpose until suddenly they are moved to action and surrender their downpour to the earth below them.
In the same way, allow me to control your life my child. Allow me to be the wind that carries you here and there. At times it will feel as if you are drifting and not knowing where you should go. However if you surrender your life to me, I can move you to the place that I need you to be.
However, if you try to dictate your own direction, you will find yourself stuck and unable to fulfill your purpose as I intended. Instead let me be your wind. Let me be your direction. Let me move you to the right place so that when the time is right, you can release your full potential on the earth just as I ordained it.
For just like the clouds, you are full of my precious water and you have my life inside of you! You have much to offer this world and you are indeed my precious gift to this world. To release this gift of life though, you need to be in the right place. So let me position you. Give up any control and surrender everything to me. 
Then although you might feel as though you are drifting, you can rest assured that I am the one leading you and you can look forward to the outpouring of my spirit that is soon to come says The Lord. Amen.

Your Secret Place in the Ark

 

Your Secret Place in the Ark

In my presence you will find everything you need to be satisfied my child. It is here that you will find a deep peace that passes all understanding. It is here that you will find the noise of the storm around you suddenly quiet until you can only see its effects around you, but realize that the effects cannot touch you.
For when you are with me, I hide you much like the manna was put in the ark of the Covenant. Here it did not waste away. It was hidden in this secret place and so it was kept fresh and did not become exposed to the elements that would cause it to go rotten.
In the same way as you remain hidden in my hand, it is like being tucked away into the Ark of my Covenant. You are hidden away for that moment from the struggles and the storms in the world. You are hidden away from the fears and the striving and all that remains is my sweet presence.
So run to this quiet place and come receive the peace that passes all understanding. Here you will be renewed. You will experience the absence of fear and doubt - you will hear only the stillness of my voice. So come and know that I will always have this secret place for you says The Lord.

A Gentle Whisper

 

A Gentle Whisper

My child, hear my gentle voice calling you to come into my presence. Stop for a moment and listen to the gentle whisper in the air. The noise around you is so much and it is so loud. 
You get distracted and listen to everything else. You run for the one that shouts the loudest and you give attention to the one that cries with the most desperation. But my child, the one you need to listen to most, is my gentle voice.
I want to pour my love into you and give you wisdom for what you are facing. I want to show you my way, but for you to hear me and see me, you must stop in your tracks and turn your face to me.
Stop running, stop trying and striving and just look at me. I don't need you to say anything but I just need you to look at me. I need you to come and follow the gentle whisper in the air so that I can fill your ears with sweet words and fill your heart with tender love.
You are precious to me. Come my beloved. Run away with me and let me show you the secret place that I have created just for you and me. Come now my child, come, says the Lord.

I Desire Your Imperfection

 

I Desire Your Imperfection

Your heart is so precious to me my child. It is in your imperfection that I am made perfect. Stop trying to come to me clean. Stop trying to get everything under control before you run into my arms.
I am not like your earthly father who might have wanted you to be perfect before you came to him. In fact, I delight when you come with your heart wide open and show me everything regardless of how bad it might seem.
I just crave your heart. I want your reality so that I can add mine on top of it. I want your weakness so that I can fill it with my strength. I want your inability so I can fill it with my ability. 
It is only when you come to me with all of that,  that you can run in my power. It is only when you really give me your heart with all that is in it, that you will shine with my glory and reflect to the world who I really am.
So my child, know that I need your imperfection to make my perfection known to the world. Come to me as you are and let us change the world together my beloved. Amen.
