Bearing Long with God

How long you have born with Me in this posture: bowed down in submission to others who would treat you harshly, to others who would misunderstand you, to others who would demean and reject what I’ve put in you. I tell you, I lift your head. Like cold water to a weary soul I flood you with the outpouring of My Spirit. You will know this in your body and see it in the natural as I change your circumstances. This is more real to you than man coming to you and offering a change. You rejoice now for you know the realness of the thing by faith.

Beloved, this is walking by faith and not by sight. What man changes in his own strength can crumble in a moment, but what I establish is everlasting. You have found the good and precious life purpose of being led My Holy Spirit’s promptings and believing this as the truth of the circumstance, no matter what man said about you, to you, or what was for you. I am for you, I always have been.

What I have for you is the truth of your circumstance, not what man says you are good at or have the ability to do. What I say you have the ability to do, through My strength, is the truth that you walk in. For can I not change your body, My body the church, or the body of an organization to align with My good and perfect will. Would I do not this for just one soul who cries out to Me in Spirit and in truth.

I long to make such changes, but man is too soon wearied at standing in the season of bearing it patiently until I give instructions to move and act. He runs away, efforts in his own strength, or stops waiting upon Me for instruction. Listen, watch, action all in the flow of My Spirit living in you. For one will put 1,000 to flight and two put 10,000 to flight, and we are three. Am I not Father, Son, and Holy Spirit – three in one and you are in Me. A great mystery but a destiny changing truth.

Joshua 23:9-11

“For the Lord has driven out from before you great and strong nations; but as for you, no one has been able to stand against you to this day. One man of you shall chase a thousand, for the Lord your God is He who fights for you, as He promised you. Therefore take careful heed to yourselves, that you love the Lord your God.”

Psalms 3:1-8

“Lord, how they have increased who trouble me! Many are they who rise up against me. Many are they who say of me, ‘There is no help for him in God.’ Selah! But You, O Lord, are a shield for me, my glory and the One who lifts up my head. I cried to the Lord with my voice, and He heard me from His holy hill. Selah! I lay down and slept; I awoke, for the Lord sustained me. I will not be afraid of ten thousands of people who have set themselves against me all around. Arise, O Lord; save me, O my God! For You have struck all my enemies on the cheekbone; You have broken the teeth of the ungodly. Salvation belongs to the Lord. Your blessing is upon Your people. Selah!”

Proverbs 13:12

“Hope deferred makes the heart sick, But when the desire comes, it is a tree of life.”

James 1:2-4

“My brethren, count it all joy when you fall into various trials, knowing that the testing of your faith produces patience. But let patience have its perfect work, that you may be perfect and complete, lacking nothing.”
