Listen Closely, God is Knocking. Open the Door, Remain Faithful & Refuse to Let Depression or Despair Take Over.

My Child,
You have nearly lost hope of things ever changing.
You expected your breakthrough to happen before now.
However, your expectations were met with more defeat.

Yes, it’s hard right now, but it won’t be this way forever.
My Word is true.

Remain faithful and refuse to let depression and despair take over your life. Do not allow anything to put out the flicker of hope that should still be burning bright for Me. If you allow that flicker of hope to die out, it will bring you down to the depths of hopelessness you've never known before. My Child, I know you are greater than that.


Listen closely, because I Am knocking.
Open the door, for I have renewed hope waiting for you.
I Am the way out that you seek.

Do not be weary in well‐doing, for you will reap
    in due season if you do not faint.

Today is the day to break the stronghold that has come 
against you. You will be victorious over every weapon the enemy has planned against you.

Open the door and come out of the valley.
Remember, my child I have all power over all things.




READ AND MEDITATE ON GOD'S WORD
Galatians 6:9 - And let us not be weary in well doing: for in due season we shall reap, if we faint not. 

Isaiah 40:30-31 - Even the youths shall faint and be weary, and the young men shall utterly fall: But they that wait upon the LORD shall renew their strength; they shall mount up with wings as eagles; they shall run, and not be weary, and they shall walk, and not faint.

Isaiah 54:17 - No weapon that is formed against thee shall prosper, and every tongue that shall rise against thee in judgment thou shalt condemn. This is the heritage of the servants of the LORD, and their righteousness is of me, saith the LORD.

#ScriptureReflection - Romans 8:31 - 34 (2.24.18)

Brothers and sisters:
If God is for us, who can be against us?
He who did not spare his own Son
but handed him over for us all,
how will he not also give us everything else along with him?

Who will bring a charge against God's chosen ones?
It is God who acquits us, who will condemn?
Christ Jesus it is who died—or, rather, was raised—
who also is at the right hand of God,
who indeed intercedes for us.

#ScriptureReflection - 2 Corinthians 5:20 - 6:2 (2.23.18)

Brothers and sisters:
We are ambassadors for Christ,
as if God were appealing through us.
We implore you on behalf of Christ,
be reconciled to God.
For our sake he made him to be sin who did not know sin,
so that we might become the righteousness of God in him.

Working together, then,
we appeal to you not to receive the grace of God in vain.
For he says:

In an acceptable time I heard you,
and on the day of salvation I helped you.


Behold, now is a very acceptable time;
behold, now is the day of salvation.

Take Some Time & Spend it in God's Presence (2.22.18)

My Child,
You called out to Me today because your spirit is feeling so heavy. 

I heard you.
I Am near you.
I feel what you are going through.

I know why your heart is troubled, and why your spirit feels heavy.  You have too much on your mind.  You’re worried about what’s coming next, and if you will have enough time to get things done.  If you don’t stop and release it all, it will only get worse. How can you know what to do, if you won’t stop for a moment and listen?

You’ve cried out to Me for help. However, you won’t take the time to wait in My Presence to receive wisdom and get understanding about what I would have you to do. I desire to relieve you of the burden you’re feeling, but you continue to bind My Hands when you won’t stop and listen to Me.

Take some time away from what you are doing
     and spend time in My presence. 

What you are doing can wait. 
Is it more important than Me?

You need to hear from Me more than you need to continue following the path that is leading you where I don’t want you to go. 

Stop and saturate your mind with My Word.
Meditate in My Presence today, and hear
     what I Am saying to you. 

If you do this, a door will open and the help you need
     will be waiting for you.

My child, it’s so easy. It's so simple.  Just stop. 

What you’re going through will pass.
If you stop and listen.

Be at peace.

All is in My Hands.

All is well.  

  

READ AND MEDITATE ON HIS WORD
Jeremiah 33:3 - Call to me and I will answer you, and will tell you great and hidden things that you have not known.

Proverbs 4:5 - Get wisdom, get understanding: forget it not; neither decline from the words of my mouth.

Isaiah 26:3-4 - Thou wilt keep him in perfect peace, whose mind is stayed on thee: because he trusteth in thee. Trust ye in the LORD for ever: for in the LORD JEHOVAH is everlasting strength:

Isaiah 30:21 - And thine ears shall hear a word behind thee, saying, This is the
way, walk ye in it, when ye turn to the right hand, and when ye turn to the left.

Focused Prayer (2.21.18)

Father,
You are a GOD of peace and not despair,
     and yet I spend so much of my time being anxious
     about things You can easily take care of.

Most of the time, these things are not worth the time I spend worrying about them. 

Show me my greatest worry, and allow me to bring it to You in prayer, laying it at Your feet, as an offering of my brokenness. 

Teach me how to recognize Your Purpose, in the midst of my worries; or how to release them into Your Capable Hands. 

If I need to change the focus of my prayers, help me to
     be alert to the moving of Your Spirit in my heart, Father.

Amen

Rise Up in Faith (2.20.18)

My Child,
I come now to you as your Counselor.

You are wondering what to do about your circumstances, things have occurred which have overwhelmed you and caused a spirit of heaviness and confusion to come upon you. You are wondering what to do because things seem hopeless.  However, I tell you Beloved, this is not a hopeless situation, for nothing is impossible for Me. 

I say to you rise up, I have given you authority and power. 
It is time for you to bind the strong man
     and fight the good fight of faith.

Do not allow the enemy to have his way! 
Rise up as mighty men and women! 

Take the sword of the Spirit (which is the Word of GOD), confront the strong man and break the power of that hindrance. 

Break the power of the curse. 
Have faith in the authority that I have given you. 

Stand! 

Do not allow the enemy to hold you down. 
Come and be filled, for I Am the One who will
     give you strength. 
I Am the One who will provide what you need for
     the season ahead of you.

So rebuke all disappointment and despair, and encourage
     yourself with My Word.

I Am for you. 
I Am the Anointed One.
I Will anoint you, so that you will be filled with My power.

Receive now that yoke-breaking anointing; and then confront the strong man in the power of My Word and watch him flee seven ways from you, says the Lord.

Rest Your Mind, Become Steadfast, Settle Your Spirit & Remain Calm (2.19.18)

My Child,
You are looking for direction and asking, “Where do I belong?"
You have sought many approaches to becoming successful;
     however, fear of failing and the frustration of 'not knowing'
     have caused pain in your heart.

I Am here to heal your heart and to set you free from worrying
     so that you will know you are in the right place.


My child, listen to what I Am saying to you.

Rest your mind and seek Me for new strategies and brand new relationships that will benefit My Plan for your life. Stop running to and fro, become steadfast, settle your spirit and remain calm; because I have a place that is perfectly suited just for you.

You will know it, when you are there.

God Loves You & He Will Never Forsake You (2.18.18)

My Child,
I Am here to remind you that I Will always love you
     and will never forsake you. 
I loved you before you were born. 
Before you took your first breath, I was with you
     and My Love surrounded you.
So why are you wondering if I still love you
     and if I Am with you? 


I was with you when you walked roads that were of Me, and I was still with you when you walked roads that were not of Me.  I did not judge you when you made a wrong turn, I gently took your hand and led you back onto the path of salvation.

I Am with you now to overshadow you with My Wings, to open a new door before you and to lead you on to a path of Blessings; as My Will is being done in your life. 


I don’t want you to linger anymore in the past, what is done
     is done; so put these things behind you. 

I Am with you to bring the dawn of a new day to you.

Do not worry about the opportunities you missed, because
      I Am here to bring new opportunities to you.
Do not be frustrated at the things you did not accomplish
      because I have new goals for you.   


My Child, the Love I have for you will bring things together for your good.  Do not look to the past any longer, but press forward towards the future that await you. 

For this is a new season and even now My Love, My Grace
      and Mercy have opened a new door 
before you.

Never doubt My Love for you, or whether I Am still with you.
Rest and know that I love you so much and will never leave
      nor forsake you. 

Now, can I ask you to make that same promise to Me?

#ScriptureReflection - Genesis 9:8-15 (2.17.18)

Then God said to Noah and to his sons with him: “I now establish my covenant with you and with your descendants after you 10 and with every living creature that was with you—the birds, the livestock and all the wild animals, all those that came out of the ark with you—every living creature on earth. 11 I establish my covenant with you: Never again will all life be destroyed by the waters of a flood; never again will there be a flood to destroy the earth.”

12 And God said, “This is the sign of the covenant I am making between me and you and every living creature with you, a covenant for all generations to come: 13 I have set my rainbow in the clouds, and it will be the sign of the covenant between me and the earth. 14 Whenever I bring clouds over the earth and the rainbow appears in the clouds, 15 I will remember my covenant between me and you and all living creatures of every kind. Never again will the waters become a flood to destroy all life.

#ScriptureReflection - 2 Corinthians 1:1-11 (2.16.18)

Paul, an apostle of Christ Jesus by the will of God, and Timothy our brother,
To the church of God in Corinth, together with all his holy people throughout Achaia:
Grace and peace to you from God our Father and the Lord Jesus Christ.

Praise to the God of All Comfort

Praise be to the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, the Father of compassion and the God of all comfort, who comforts us in all our troubles, so that we can comfort those in any trouble with the comfort we ourselves receive from God. For just as we share abundantly in the sufferings of Christ, so also our comfort abounds through Christ. If we are distressed, it is for your comfort and salvation; if we are comforted, it is for your comfort, which produces in you patient endurance of the same sufferings we suffer. And our hope for you is firm, because we know that just as you share in our sufferings, so also you share in our comfort.

We do not want you to be uninformed, brothers and sisters, about the troubles we experienced in the province of Asia. We were under great pressure, far beyond our ability to endure, so that we despaired of life itself. Indeed, we felt we had received the sentence of death. But this happened that we might not rely on ourselves but on God, who raises the dead. 10 He has delivered us from such a deadly peril, and he will deliver us again. On him we have set our hope that he will continue to deliver us, 11 as you help us by your prayers. Then many will give thanks on our behalf for the gracious favor granted us in answer to the prayers of many.
