Beauty in the Staying

Do not grow weary in well doing, bear fruit where I’ve planted you. When it is time to move, I will move you. You will know without a doubt that it is Me who makes your way. You will not need to search to and fro for a way out, for I bring you on a way through. How sweet this walk with Me, knowing with every cell in Your body that it is I who lead you. What a great intimacy knowing that it is I who woos your soul even here where you stand. How light the burden becomes knowing it is I who refresh your spirit in this way I’ve created you to walk.

Beloved, in the staying do not limit Me and do not move ahead of Me. Let Me show you that My arm is not too short to save. Let me demonstrate the strength of my hand at work in your life both in you and around you. You will not need to struggle and fight circumstances and people’s attitudes and points as you once did. You became bogged down and wearied with playing politics, but love, just let Me move hearts and work in the inner places and submit your heart cries to Me.

Do not complain or gossip about your fellow mankind to your fellow mankind, for are all not under Me. I am the One high and lifted up. I am the Alfa and Omega, the Beginning and the End. Look to Me and let me work in your life and bring forth that which you did not even imagine could be birthed from one such as you. I redeem you, I make you new, I make you whole. Yes, I beautify you. Be swayed not by man’s jeers/opinions or even the goings on around the world, just be fully mine right where I have you and let Me flow in and through you.

Oh beloved, would that all who were called by My name offer themselves fully to Me. In your sphere of influence and in the spheres I broaden in days to come, operate only as Me through you, not in your own strength. You will be delighted at not only the works I bring forth and ways I make, but you will delight in Me as I delight in You, My love.  Oh let this divine intimacy, the phenomenon that all creation sings of, points to, and reveals in the natural be more real to you than even your reality in time.

I whisper to your heart in loving tones, “there is more in Me. There is more in Me. Come, My love, come away with Me to the hills and be with Me.” I take you to new heights in Me. I operate where you cannot see. How light this journey, for you do not need to be privy to all the details or constantly look at circumstances beyond your control, for I Am. Walk each day in My joy and let Me shape your life as I shape your heart. Enjoy the walk, enjoy Me.

 

Galatians 6:9-10

“Let us not become weary in doing good, for at the proper time we will reap a harvest if we do not give up. Therefore, as we have opportunity, let us do good to all people, especially to those who belong to the family of believers.”

Ephesians 6:10-18

“Finally, let the Lord make you strong. Depend on his mighty power. Put on all of God’s armor. Then you can remain strong against the devil’s evil plans. ur fight is not against human beings. It is against the rulers, the authorities and the powers of this dark world. It is against the spiritual forces of evil in the heavenly world. So put on all of God’s armor. Evil days will come. But you will be able to stand up to anything. And after you have done everything you can, you will still be standing. So remain strong in the faith. Put the belt of truth around your waist. Put the armor of godliness on your chest. Wear on your feet what will prepare you to tell the good news of peace. Also, pick up the shield of faith. With it you can put out all the flaming arrows of the evil one. Put on the helmet of salvation. And take the sword of the Holy Spirit. The sword is God’s word. At all times, pray by the power of the Spirit. Pray all kinds of prayers. Be watchful, so that you can pray. Always keep on praying for all the Lord’s people.”
