Lift Your Head


Lift Your Head

My child, you have been staring at the ground for such a long time because you are so afraid of going in the wrong direction, afraid of stepping into a pothole and are so afraid of stumbling. Lift up your head my child because it is not for you to see where you are going, but mine. You are walking with your hand in mine and I know the way so I will definitely not let you fall or go astray.
Lift your head and see all the beautiful things that are around you as you walk with me. It is not about the destination, but the journey with Me that changes you and molds who you are. Lift your head so that you can feel the sun on your face and so you can see people around you and so that you can clearly see Me. I am waiting for you to turn your face toward mine. Let me lead you and enjoy the journey!

I am the Treasure you Seek






I am the Treasure you Seek

My child, all this time you have been exhausting yourself, running around, trying to find treasures out there in the world. You have been trying to find peace and love in all the things that the world has to offer. But my child, my love for you is sufficient and it is my love for you that is the very treasure you seek.

I have never left you nor caused your foot to slip, says the Lord. I have been by your side all along. And even as you have ventured out trying to find the things you are craving deep inside your heart, out there in the cold world, I was standing beside you, gently wooing you into my presence.

My child, just put that all aside. Put aside all the striving and take my hand afresh even now, says the Lord. Trust in me and allow me to lead you by the still waters and the green pastures. For it's in my lap and in my embrace, that you will find the peace and love you seek. It's right here, in the stillness and quietness of my presence that you will be satisfied.

In my right hand there are pleasures forevermore, says the Lord. So come to me now and stop running. Amen.

Climb the Mountain


Climb the Mountain

All you may see in front of you may be mountain after mountain, but do not be discouraged my child, for with each mountain you climb, you will develop different muscles, you will encounter different challenges as well as have different views when you reach the top.
Do not be afraid of the climb because I have given you everything you need for the journey. You will discover tools and equipment that you have never used before because each mountain will require different skills to climb. Each journey will change who you are and give you a different perspective when you see the world from each mountaintop.
If you get weary or lose strength, know that you will not have to climb with your strength, but mine. Just keep your eyes fixed on reaching the top, for I have much to show you when you arrive. So set your heart to climb and find the joy in the path I have set before you.

Calling all the Hidden Warriors


Calling all the Hidden Warriors

To all those who have been hidden, your time in the background and in the shadows is coming to an end. There is great need in the body of Christ for those who are passionate and burn with the fire that I have put inside of them to change the face of the Church and to repair my Bride.
You feel as if you have been abandoned and many of you have been petitioning me in the darkness, hidden from the eyes of the world. Did you know that that season was so that I could prepare you in secret? Did you know that in the silence and quiet I have heard every cry, every prayer, every time you have poured your heart to Me? In the place of separation I have trained you, and refined you for the right time to emerge and do damage to the kingdom of darkness.
It is the time for you to come out of hiding and to speak with the fire that burns in your heart. I am calling you out of what you were to what you must be for the body of Christ. Leave behind the past and step out into the light. This is the time, this is the hour that you are needed. Leave your old life behind for I have called you to something greater than you can imagine. Be bold and step into the light.

Stand in My Strength


Stand in My Strength

I understand that you feel weak my child. I understand that you feel insecure and incapable. My child, let my power and my anointing cover you in your weakness. Let my presence penetrate you so that you may stand as me and not as yourself.
For as you step into who you are in me, I am the one who lives this life that you live now. I am the one who enables and empowers you. So stop hiding in your own weakness and in your own insecurity, my beloved, but step into me.
Put me on as if I were the very clothes you wear each day to face the day. Clothe yourself in my glory and in my power and you will overcome the enemy. You will overcome the world and you will stand as me.
And as you stand as me, my child, you will turn many hearts towards me for now they will see me and not you any longer. Now they will see my power and my glory and not your insecurity, says the Lord.
So run into my arms and let me transform you into who I have made you to be, says the Lord.

See the Task at Hand

 

See the Task at Hand

My child, you are like my arrow that I shot out into the sky to go forth and accomplish a specific purpose, says the Lord. Even as that arrow glides through the winds and pushes through the weather, so are you high up in the sky right now, experiencing some turbulence. 
However, never forget my child, that I am the one who has sent you and that I am the one who will get you to your destination. I am also the one who commands the wind and the weather and I will make sure that regardless of what happens around you, that you will reach your destination.
All you need to do is to be fixed on the task at hand. Look to me each day for direction so that I can lock your coordinates in, even as an arrow would have a clear direction. Do not allow your circumstances to deter you from what I told you to do. Do not allow the enemy to come and overwhelm you with His lies, but remain on track with what I have promised you.
The wind and the rain may cause you to slow down and it may make it difficult for you to see, but as you remain focused, all these things will not matter, for I have not moved, my child. The direction and the promise I have given you stands sure and true. So keep pressing forward, my beloved, and before you know it, you will reach your goal in my mighty name. Amen.

Trust in Me to Prepare You

Trust in Me to Prepare You

Consider a little child that is about to go to a foreign country, for vacation - to a place he has never been. It is for his mother to pack what he will need. She knows what the weather is like, if he will need shorts and T-shirts or sweaters and pants. She knows the conditions and packs accordingly.
She packs those things that will bring him comfort and make him feel at ease. In the same way she leaves behind the unnecessary items that she knows will just take up space. The clunky toys that will just get in the way, she leaves behind. The bulky coat that is not needed in a tropical climate is put away as well.
He does not know what to pack or leave behind, but leaves it for his mother. In the same way, the place ahead that I am taking you to, you do not understand what you will and will not need. You may think that clunky toy must be taken with you, but what you do not consider is the room it takes and what else will have to be left behind because of it – it cannot be afforded.
So let me sort through what you have. Allow me to pack for your future my child. Just as that child trusted in his mother, so you must trust also in Me. If I say that you will not need this baggage, if I say that you cannot bring along that favorite security blanket, or your favorite toy, then trust in Me and believe that you will not need it.
Let go and trust in Me, my child. For the future ahead is a foreign land to you, exotic and beautiful. You do not know in yourself, what you will need to thrive there. Let go then and allow me to take control. Amen.
