Stand, Depend, Speak

     I have need of thee, are you ready to serve Me in the position I’ve prepared you for at such a time as this? Know that I do not give you more than you can bear. I have need of thee and have trained thee to stand, always depending on Me. Do not look back to positions before that were easier or to positions along side you that you could easily fill without depending on Me.

     What an adventure to stand where I place you and as you go about your tasks expect Me to show up, for you will have need of Me. I’ve trained you to rely on Me and put your dependence on Me. I have need of thee, I do not say these words lightly for I order your steps when you are ready, for I do not want My blessings and purpose for you to crush you.

     Stand firm in Me and I will make a way for you. When the darkness seems impenetrable, trust that I will bring light. I will change circumstances as you speak My truth over a situation, you will bring/give hope to the masses. All those around you will breathe in the fresh breath of freedom that I desire to bring My people.

     I created a garden of beauty, not oppression. I do not delight for My leaders to operate in tyranny, but in giving hope to others, to cultivating the gifts I’ve placed in those around them, not in lip service but in wholehearted desire to operate in My kingdom principles and display My heart in situations and to people.

     I will make straight your ways, I will reveal what has been hidden. Do I not delight in leaders who humble themselves before Me and before each other, preferring the other above themselves. I desire that My children come to know My fullness, for in this place with Me all things are possible. Do not be discouraged, but see the blocks as paths to display My glory.

  • “Lead me, Lord, in your righteousness because of my enemies—make your way straight before me. Not a word from their mouth can be trusted; their heart is filled with malice.  Their throat is an open grave;  with their tongues they tell lies.Declare them guilty, O God! Let their intrigues be their downfall.  Banish them for their many sins, for they have rebelled against you. But let all who take refuge in you be glad; let them ever sing for joy.  Spread your protection over them, that those who love your name may rejoice in you.”  Psalm 57:8-11
  • But without faith it is impossible to please him: for he that comes to God must believe that he is, and that he is a rewarder of them that diligently seek him.”  Hebrews 11:6
  • “And truly, if they had been mindful of that country from whence they came out, they might have had opportunity to have returned.But now they desire a better country, that is, an heavenly: wherefore God is not ashamed to be called their God: for he hath prepared for them a city.”  Hebrews 11:15-16
  • “I pray that the eyes of your heart may be enlightened in order that you may know the hope to which he has called you, the riches of his glorious inheritance in his holy people, and his incomparably great power for us who believe. That power is the same as the mighty strength he exerted when he raised Christ from the dead and seated him at his right hand in the heavenly realms, far above all rule and authority, power and dominion, and every name that is invoked, not only in the present age but also in the one to come. And God placed all things under his feet and appointed him to be head over everything for the church, which is his body, the fullness of him who fills everything in every way.”  Ephesians 1:18-23
