My adored, do not judge My plans based upon what you see. Do I not tell you the times and seasons that are to come, why dwell ye here in the present and responding only to what you see as the whole story. Yours is to walk by faith, to receive every word that proceeds from My mouth. This is not the way man walks. Man walks by site and speculation. Know My word and stand on this in all that you have need of.
Be not alarmed at the look of things surrounding you, I will calm the seas. Be open to speak My word in season. You will even pour My love out onto those you encounter. I tell you of these things to prepare you to stand even on the heights. You have stood in the valley of darkness, but I lift you up with My own hand, saith the Lord.
I delight in taking the cast down and overlooked and making these those who are called for My purposes to change the world. Some have an authority of man and a self-importance, but I tell you I Am raising up those who have their importance solidly based on Me and how I empower them. These My humble ones that I strengthen and use mightily to bring about My purposes, for their desire is for My glory not their own gain.
You are even restless at this time trying to figure out what is next. Look to Me for your peace, for in this is My flow. Rivers of living water I pour forth from you. Look to Me for your supply, for without it you are lifeless and empty. You will be busy about the Lord’s work. When operating in My anointing, more is accomplished with less. I empower, give creativity, and even focus. Delight yourself in Me, for I Am your deliverer, Your God, your Beloved.
- “For even hereunto were ye called: because Christ also suffered for us, leaving us an example, that ye should follow his steps: who did no sin, neither was guile found in his mouth: who, when he was reviled, reviled not again; when he suffered, he threatened not; but committed himself to him that judgeth righteously: who his own self bare our sins in his own body on the tree, that we, being dead to sins, should live unto righteousness: by whose stripes ye were healed. For ye were as sheep going astray; but are now returned unto the Shepherd and Bishop of your souls.” I Peter 2:21-25
- “For he shall grow up before him as a tender plant, and as a root out of a dry ground: he hath no form nor comeliness; and when we shall see him, there is no beauty that we should desire him. He is despised and rejected of men; a man of sorrows, and acquainted with grief: and we hid as it were our faces from him; he was despised, and we esteemed him not. Surely he hath borne our griefs, and carried our sorrows: yet we did esteem him stricken, smitten of God, and afflicted. But he was wounded for our transgressions, he was bruised for our iniquities: the chastisement of our peace was upon him; and with his stripes we are healed. All we like sheep have gone astray; we have turned every one to his own way; and the Lord hath laid on him the iniquity of us all.He was oppressed, and he was afflicted, yet he opened not his mouth: he is brought as a lamb to the slaughter, and as a sheep before her shearers is dumb, so he openeth not his mouth. He was taken from prison and from judgment: and who shall declare his generation? for he was cut off out of the land of the living: for the transgression of my people was he stricken.And he made his grave with the wicked, and with the rich in his death; because he had done no violence, neither was any deceit in his mouth.Yet it pleased the Lord to bruise him; he hath put him to grief: when thou shalt make his soul an offering for sin, he shall see his seed, he shall prolong his days, and the pleasure of the Lord shall prosper in his hand.He shall see of the travail of his soul, and shall be satisfied: by his knowledge shall my righteous servant justify many; for he shall bear their iniquities. Therefore will I divide him a portion with the great, and he shall divide the spoil with the strong; because he hath poured out his soul unto death: and he was numbered with the transgressors; and he bare the sin of many, and made intercession for the transgressors.” Isaiah 53:2-12
