When Facing Opposition

     Beloved, it is not you who make the change. Only stand and I will make your way. I will not let you fail. You come to me with nothing and wait before Me in hopelessness and weakness, I impart to you something new and sweet. I breathe My fresh wind upon you, My love.  Open your mouth wide and I will fill it.

     You are unsure and do not want to face resistance. I am teaching you to face resistance in My way and letting Me bear the burden. My love, do not let their darts reach your heart, for I empower you to speak and respond with My grace. What they do unto you, they do unto Me. I take this very seriously. I will bring about vengeance, yours is to be light and pour My life out to others. Their words and actions I will deal with in a way that brings conviction and their development. Yours is to stand in a higher place with Me.

     I bring you up higher, even in their words of disagreement and actions to keep you bowed down in a lowly place, it is I who exalt for you desire to use these for My glory and not to exalt your own station. These mouths of opposition I will silence. I will bring forth your role in such a mighty way that you will know I have moved upon men’s hearts and this is how I part the seas to bring you to your desired destination.

     I have created you to pour out, not to be hidden in the back. Even though you keep to the fringes, I need you right in the middle bringing diverse people together and creating unity. Speak forth boldly, work diligently, knowing that I Am in control and I order your steps.

  • “And the King shall answer and say unto them, Verily I say unto you, inasmuch as ye have done it unto one of the least of these my brethren, ye have done it unto me.”  Matthew 25:40
  • “Unto thee lift I up mine eyes, O thou that dwellest in the heavens.Behold, as the eyes of servants look unto the hand of their masters, and as the eyes of a maiden unto the hand of her mistress; so our eyes wait upon the Lord our God, until that he have mercy upon us.Have mercy upon us, O Lord, have mercy upon us: for we are exceedingly filled with contempt. Our soul is exceedingly filled with the scorning of those that are at ease, and with the contempt of the proud. If it had not been the Lord who was on our side, now may Israel say;  if it had not been the Lord who was on our side, when men rose up against us: then they had swallowed us up quick, when their wrath was kindled against us: then the waters had overwhelmed us, the stream had gone over our soul: then the proud waters had gone over our soul. Blessed be the Lord, who hath not given us as a prey to their teeth. Our soul is escaped as a bird out of the snare of the fowlers: the snare is broken, and we are escaped. Our help is in the name of the Lord, who made heaven and earth.”  Psalm 123:1-4 and 124:1-8
