Be Above and Not Below

     In My time and way I reveal what is hidden by the enemy. I bring light to darkness. I bring about My purposes for you in My way. I reveal light in darkness. Yes, My love this is not an easy place, for when light comes there is blame placed even on the one through which My light shines. I will guide you in all you communicate, just look to Me. Be open to My promptings so that I can quickly bring you through. You have poured out and not held back, even on fear of rejection from those over you.

     My love, know this, I Am pleased with you. I have called you to speak forth and say, “thus saith the Lord…” and you have not held back. Even when I revealed that the scriptures had come to pass in Me and shone a light on all those with legalistic mindsets, I was rejected too. But those who loved Me accepted My words.

     Oh Love, you have even desired to run to the ends of the earth to escape this place where you currently dwell. I have need of you here. I will not leave you in this place. Rejoice, for I have more for you to both to do, more places for Me to take you. Fear not man here, for I Am your standard, your way, and the one who softens hearts. I give you My peace for you know you are walking in My right paths for you.

     You even say, “Why Me? You can get 1,000 other people, even those who are positioned here to do this work. I just want to go hide in my cave and find something else to be successful with.” It’s because you have been refined in this and are willing to give all up rather than lord your position and authority over others. This means nothing to you, you only want to accomplish My purpose for you being here. I have need of your heart, of your unique fragrance.

     Standing takes more strength than running. For even your own reputation you must be willing to let go of for My sake. In this place of standing, others will tell lies about you, reject you, and even paint you as one who doesn’t know what you are doing. I tell you the truth, I have given you the wisdom and knowledge of this age above all those of the land put in positions to know of these things. I Am your teacher, through Me you can accomplish anything.

     Stand firm, My love. Do not interpret rejection or humiliation as something you did wrong, but merely a response to My truth and light on a situation. Be above this and not below it. Take My yoke upon you and learn of Me, for My yoke is easy and My burden is light.

  • “Each of us should please our neighbors for their good, to build them up. For even Christ did not please himself but, as it is written: “The insults of those who insult you have fallen on me.” For everything that was written in the past was written to teach us, so that through the endurance taught in the Scriptures and the encouragement they provide we might have hope.”  Romans 15:2-4
  • “But he said to me, “My grace is sufficient for you, for my power is made perfect in weakness.” Therefore I will boast all the more gladly about my weaknesses, so that Christ’s power may rest on me. That is why, for Christ’s sake, I delight in weaknesses, in insults, in hardships, in persecutions, in difficulties. For when I am weak, then I am strong.”  II Corinthians 12:9-10
  • “But how is it to your credit if you receive a beating for doing wrong and endure it? But if you suffer for doing good and you endure it, this is commendable before God. To this you were called, because Christ suffered for you, leaving you an example, that you should follow in his steps.“He committed no sin, and no deceit was found in his mouth.”When they hurled their insults at him, he did not retaliate; when he suffered, he made no threats. Instead, he entrusted himself to him who judges justly. “He himself bore our sins” in his body on the cross, so that we might die to sins and live for righteousness; “by his wounds you have been healed.” For “you were like sheep going astray,” but now you have returned to the Shepherd and Overseer of your souls.”  I Peter 2:20-25
