God’s Weighty Presence

Prayer: Oh Lord, give me boldness where I need to be bold. Season My words with grace and wisdom. Let not my sound come forth but yours. In conversations, meetings, writings, creations of the works of my hands. Anoint My tongue to speak and my hands to work as unto Thee. Remove the lashes I’ve received from man either deserved or undeserved. Remove the scars and make me new, without even a hint of the smell of the old ways. Make me new to smell of Thee, Beloved.

      Newness I declare over you, I set your feet on higher ground. I give you a new way to walk. A path unseen. Oh how clear it will all look when you look back with Me over your life. Enjoy the days ahead, rest as Elijah did and come forth refreshed for the next leg of your journey. My love, this is just a leg you are finishing and new leg begins.

     My love, from bitter springs you have drank, but I declare to you this day I make the bitter waters sweet. Drink deeply of Me and enjoy the sweetness of the waters I have prepared for you. You will experience in this leg of your journey My weighty presence, for here I change you, I transform you with My touch.

Exodus 15:22-26

“So Moses brought Israel from the Red sea, and they went out into the wilderness of Shur; and they went three days in the wilderness, and found no water. And when they came to Marah, they could not drink of the waters of Marah, for they were bitter: therefore the name of it was called Marah. And the people murmured against Moses, saying, ‘What shall we drink?’ And he cried unto the Lord; and the Lord shewed him a tree, which when he had cast into the waters, the waters were made sweet: there he made for them a statute and an ordinance, and there he proved them, And said, f thou wilt diligently hearken to the voice of the Lord thy God, and wilt do that which is right in his sight, and wilt give ear to his commandments, and keep all his statutes, I will put none of these diseases upon thee, which I have brought upon the Egyptians: for I am the Lord that healeth thee.'”

I Kings 17:2-10

“Then the word of the Lord came to Elijah: ‘Leave here, turn eastward and hide in the Kerith Ravine, east of the Jordan. 4 You will drink from the brook, and I have directed the ravens to supply you with food there.’ So he did what the Lord had told him. He went to the Kerith Ravine, east of the Jordan, and stayed there. The ravens brought him bread and meat in the morning and bread and meat in the evening, and he drank from the brook. Some time later the brook dried up because there had been no rain in the land. Then the word of the Lord came to him: ‘Go at once to Zarephath in the region of Sidon and stay there. I have directed a widow there to supply you with food.'”

Ezekiel 34: 25-31

“I will make a covenant of peace with them and rid the land of savage beasts so that they may live in the wilderness and sleep in the forests in safety. I will make them and the places surrounding my hill a blessing. I will send down showers in season; there will be showers of blessing. The trees will yield their fruit and the ground will yield its crops; the people will be secure in their land. They will know that I am the Lord, when I break the bars of their yoke and rescue them from the hands of those who enslaved them. They will no longer be plundered by the nations, nor will wild animals devour them. They will live in safety, and no one will make them afraid. I will provide for them a land renowned for its crops, and they will no longer be victims of famine in the land or bear the scorn of the nations. Then they will know that I, the Lord their God, am with them and that they, the Israelites, are my people, declares the Sovereign Lord. You are my sheep, the sheep of my pasture, and I am your God, declares the Sovereign Lord.”
