While spending time with the Lord, He poured out the following Word. Thank you, Jesus, that You always desire to speak to us. You are our refreshment. Thank you for those rivers of living waters that pour forth freely in limitless supply.
You’ve said in your heart, “The Lord feels far from me. I am alone and undone. All of my sins are ever before me. Will I ever feel His presence again?” My love, do not react to feelings, but to My truth. Proclaim with your mouth and believe in your heart, “He is with me.” I am always with you, My love. The enemy of your soul, the accuser of the brethren, has strategically operated to discourage those who are called by My name and those have yet to make that choice to receive Me.
I did not create you for separation, but to love one another deeply. Be not uneasy in this season, for I am not. The world has been in uncertain and troubled times since the fall of man. But I Am. I have always had a plan to redeem mankind since the foundation of the world. I knew the choice man would make to turn from Me, but I spread out creation and spoke the universe into being because of My great love. For when you found me, you would know the reason you were created – to know My love.
I desire to be intimate with you, beyond what the world calls intimacy. I know your thoughts from afar, I see each choice, I see the moments that pass when you feel trapped, as though all effort is futile, I see when you doubt yourself, I see when you doubt Me. My love, look to Me and I will raise you above this circumstance of the now. I am faithful. I have always raised up My people in times of uncertainty. I Am your certainty.
Fear not, hope yet again. Be not tangled in emotions when those condemning accusations come to bring up your past mistakes or current stumbles. Repent and turn back to Me, My blood covers you. I do not get discouraged over your missteps, I wait for your heart to repent and turn back to Me – the Author and Finisher of your faith, your Beginning and your End, your very great Reward.
Out of our oneness, let me create something new and pour out through you onto the world. Let them say, “How are you doing this in these times? Your answer will be, “The most High has strengthened me and given purpose to my steps.” There is more to know, come to Me and let us reason together on the heights of My possibilities.
“In the course of my life he broke my strength; he cut short my days. So I said: ‘Do not take me away, my God, in the midst of my days; your years go on through all generations. In the beginning you laid the foundations of the earth, and the heavens are the work of your hands. They will perish, but you remain; they will all wear out like a garment. Like clothing you will change them and they will be discarded. But you remain the same, and your years will never end.'”
I Samuel 2:7-10
“The Lord sends poverty and wealth; he humbles and he exalts. He raises the poor from the dust and lifts the needy from the ash heap; he seats them with princes and has them inherit a throne of honor. ‘For the foundations of the earth are the Lord’s; on them he has set the world. He will guard the feet of his faithful servants, but the wicked will be silenced in the place of darkness. It is not by strength that one prevails; those who oppose the Lord will be broken. The Most High will thunder from heaven; the Lord will judge the ends of the earth. He will give strength to his king and exalt the horn of his anointed.’”
“Listen to me, Jacob, Israel, whom I have called: I am he; I am the first and I am the last. My own hand laid the foundations of the earth, and my right hand spread out the heavens; when I summon them, they all stand up together.”
“I, even I, am he who comforts you. Who are you that you fear mere mortals, human beings who are but grass, that you forget the Lord your Maker, who stretches out the heavens and who lays the foundations of the earth, that you live in constant terror every day because of the wrath of the oppressor, who is bent on destruction? For where is the wrath of the oppressor? The cowering prisoners will soon be set free; they will not die in their dungeon, nor will they lack bread. For I am the Lord your God, who stirs up the sea so that its waves roar – the Lord Almighty is his name. I have put my words in your mouth and covered you with the shadow of my hand – I who set the heavens in place, who laid the foundations of the earth, and who say to Zion, ‘You are my people.”
