Do not fear what they fear, do not dread what they dread. Am I not the one who promotes you and puts down? Do not covet or clamor for titles of men, seek Me and My outpouring instead. Is not what I bestow filled with eternal consequences, whereas man’s is temporal – even changing direction within the day. I’ve placed you in this place to see how fickle man’s heart can be.
You have learned to depend on Me and not on manipulation, man’s favor, or your own talents and credentials to get what you think you want and what you think would satisfy. I’ve placed you here to show them another way, My way, a higher path to walk in even in their daily work and careers. I’ve placed you here to display what I can do with one whose heart is FULLY committed to Me.
Have I not made a way for you throughout your life and opened opportunities when you were not the most qualified? When did I declare My way of handling you like this would stop? Did not I always make a way for My unexpected men of valor? “Unexpected men of valor” – this is how I prepare and orchestrate to lift up the lowly and use in higher ways. I did this with a sheep herder, fishermen, wives, and I continue to work in this way – in unexpected ways, to confound the wise and learned, and bring down the haughty. Stay humble before Me and keep your eyes to seeking My pleasure for here I can fully pour through you.
My outpouring, my authority has benefits that reach and satisfy not only in this life but throughout eternity. I have a life of adventure for you, My love, not a life in a box that is always set on seeking man’s acceptance and praise. Would you rather have authority that I give you or man’s authority? I have spoken of this to you before and it is an important lesson to learn. You will need to overcome this to be ready for My next step for you.
I have poured into you for years, I have watched over you throughout your life, you are set apart for My purposes. Seek to share My words and I will add to you the wisdom and knowledge of this age to solve the temporal issues surrounding you. Did not My enemies spitefully use Me too. Humble yourself before Me and I will lift you up. Make no effort at seeking riches, for I will provide as you follow Me. Man does not control how I will give you blessings financially, for when I pour out it cannot be held back.
Take heart, be of good courage, I will speak to the heart of the king, I will give you favor with men as you need it. “As needed” is a phrase that I do not take lightly. Man will exploit this, but I will bless it. My beloveds are to wait for Me to use them “as needed” and will I not only use them and leave a blessing for those they touch but for the one through whom I touch. How much better to be used by Me.
Fret not in front of man, for I am your reward. Man you will pour out on as I pour through you, but you are to come to Me for your filling and to make things right. Cry out to Me and I will answer. Will I not hear the desperate cry of one that has let Me use them “as needed”. Will I not move heaven and earth to lift up and make a way for this precious one. How rare and priceless a jewel this one is to me.
“So do not fear, for I am with you; do not be dismayed, for I am your God. I will strengthen you and help you; I will uphold you with my righteous right hand.”
Jeremiah 42: 11-12
“Do not be afraid of the king of Babylon, whom you now fear. Do not be afraid of him, declares the Lord, for I am with you and will save you and deliver you from his hands. I will show you compassion so that he will have compassion on you and restore you to your land.”
Psalm 50: 3-23
“Our God comes and will not be silent; a fire devours before him, and around him a tempest rages. He summons the heavens above, and the earth, that he may judge his people: ‘Gather to me this consecrated people, who made a covenant with me by sacrifice.’ And the heavens proclaim his righteousness, for he is a God of justice. Listen, my people, and I will speak; I will testify against you, Israel: ‘I am God, your God. I bring no charges against you concerning your sacrifices or concerning your burnt offerings, which are ever before me. I have no need of a bull from your stall or of goats from your pens, for every animal of the forest is mine, and the cattle on a thousand hills. I know every bird in the mountains, and the insects in the fields are mine. If I were hungry I would not tell you, for the world is mine, and all that is in it. Do I eat the flesh of bulls or drink the blood of goats? Sacrifice thank offerings to God, fulfill your vows to the Most High,and call on me in the day of trouble; I will deliver you, and you will honor me.’ But to the wicked person, God says: ‘What right have you to recite my laws or take my covenant on your lips? You hate my instruction and cast my words behind you.When you see a thief, you join with him; you throw in your lot with adulterers. You use your mouth for evil and harness your tongue to deceit. You sit and testify against your brother and slander your own mother’s son. When you did these things and I kept silent, you thought I was exactly like you. But I now arraign you and set my accusations before you. Consider this, you who forget God, or I will tear you to pieces, with no one to rescue you: those who sacrifice thank offerings honor me, and to the blameless I will show my salvation.'”
“Therefore go and make disciples of all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit, and teaching them to obey everything I have commanded you. And surely I am with you always, to the very end of the age.”
