When God is our advocate, we do not fear what man shall do to us. In manipulations, twisted words, miscommunications, deceit – focus on God for He is our light. He will reveal all darkness.
I will give you greater levels of understanding of those around you not to see as man does, but as I do. They need to know My heart for them and you will share it. I will reveal and remove the dark layers that hold so many captive from My creativity and light in them. I remove blame, deceit, kingdom building, arrogance, and pride. I bring these low so that they may be built up again.
My Jewel, I have polished you to shine brightly in this dark place. I call you to bear fruit in this place. How easy these tasks will be to you, for I fill you with heavenly wisdom. I impart to you all that you need in wisdom, understanding, gifting, anointing. Even My fragrance upon you will draw all men unto Me. How heavy will My presence be in this place.
Beloved, I do not condemn you for retreating to your cave, I build you up here to restore you to My place of honor for you. I will not let those who are called by My name fail. I gently instruct and teach and lead.
- But if I say, “I will not mention his word or speak anymore in his name,” his word is in my heart like a fire, a fire shut up in my bones. I am weary of holding it in; indeed, I cannot.I hear many whispering, “Terror on every side! Denounce him! Let’s denounce him!” All my friends are waiting for me to slip, saying, “Perhaps he will be deceived; then we will prevail over him and take our revenge on him.” But the Lord is with me like a mighty warrior; so my persecutors will stumble and not prevail. They will fail and be thoroughly disgraced; their dishonor will never be forgotten.Lord Almighty, you who examine the righteous and probe the heart and mind, let me see your vengeance on them, for to you I have committed my cause.” Jeremiah 20:9-12
