Your Hope is in Me
My precious child;
Hearken diligently to what I say and consider it carefully...
Peace, be still. The waters are high
Peace, be still. You're questioning why
Peace, be still. The Lord hears your cries
Peace, be still. The storm passes by
For in You, o LORD do I hope: You will hear, o LORD my Elohim. [Ps38:15]
Trials and tribulations come, yet they also pass. Be strong and of a good courage, for lo, I am with thee. You have persevered a long time, and I say, It will soon be over!
You become discouraged and frustrated when I am silent, yet you still continue to come to Me. You still continue to read My word. You still continue to pray. You still continue to offer up praise and thanksgiving. Yet, precious child I say to you, when you come to Me, stay awhile... stay longer. Do not hurry off, but wait upon Me.
I have told you before and you well know; you cannot do this alone, for apart from Me, you can do nothing. There are times that you grab My hand and cling to Me; and there are times that you strive to be brave and strong on your own. You fight pride and strive to be humble, yet inside the fighter in you seeks to 'be cool' [as you say] and 'war' against the enemy. At times, your enemy is impatience.
Waiting for Me develops patience, if you will allow it. Yes, it is difficult for you, yet you must remember that My timing is perfect, for I am not bound by a time-frame, for I am eternity. If you could see the fruit that is born from times of waiting, you would welcome it more and keep your peace through to the end. However, it is in hindsight that man oft sees these things, yet I am here now to encourage you.
Yea, I speak once and twice, yet man does not perceive it. [Job 40:5]
Take My strength upon You. Do not walk in your own strength for you cannot; it will fail you. Walk in My strength. My strength will sustain you. I have seen all your efforts and your loving dedication to Me. I have seen how you read My word and also study to learn all that you can in order to understand and learn of Me and My ways.
You look for Me everywhere and I have trained your ear to hear My Spirit in the words of others. You try the spirit as you have been taught, and you find that many who come in My name do not speak with My Spirit at all.
They may fool the multitudes and they may even fool you for a time, for they come in My name and know My word, yet My Spirit within you, will always lead you into all truth. I give you discernment and you use it well for My glory. Continue to learn. Use the scriptures and ask for discernment if you find you are lacking it in any given thing.
Those who are the true followers of Me, will remain consistent and you will see their fruits. For even if they stumble, they [like you] will rise back up, stronger and continue forward in faith, for My true followers do walk by faith and not by sight.
For a just man falls seven times and rises up again; but the wicked shall fall into mischief [Prov 24:16]
I hear you when you acknowledge and somewhat despise your imperfections, yet you do not always see the good work that I have completed in you. You long for time to pass quickly so that My perfect plan and will for your life is evident. You long to hear My voice, yet at times you 'busy' yourself in your waking moments. You long for sleep so that time will pass. You hurry out of My presence, for My silence frustrates you.
My child, I understand how hard it is for flesh to learn patience, yet you are learning it. Waiting upon Me is not an easy call nor is it pleasant, yet it is necessary. For My ways are not your ways, neither are My thoughts as your thoughts. This is also something that you know very well, yet at times, you need reminding of it. Your efforts have not gone by unnoticed. This testing time has been a long and painful one for you, but it is not without its rewards. I know what you have need of even more so than you.
Already, My plan for you has begun to manifest itself, yet you have doubts. I have you hidden amongst My treasures, for you are a treasure My child, to Me. The enemy comes against you with a fury, accusing you always, for he knows that you are Mine. He would seek to destroy you, yet he is not allowed to. You are hidden as My treasure where he cannot touch your spirit nor do anything that I do not allow. I am your refuge and strong tower and here you are to abide.
You have been taught the difference between the holy and the profane; you have come to discern between the clean and the unclean, and the precious from the vile. I do not ask you to understand My ways, but I do ask that you trust Me. Though satan seeks to destroy you, these trials will make you stronger and wiser against the wiles of the enemy. Look to Me, the Author and Finisher of your faith.
Yes, there is a testing time. Yes, there is a fire that purifies and purges. O, but the beauty of the finished vessel, a vessel of honor; it is worth it all. Trust in the Lord with all your heart and lean not unto your own understanding. In all your ways, acknowledge Me and I shall direct your steps. Do not be wise in your own eyes but depart from evil.
Peace be still. Arise My warrior.
Arise and wait upon Me, trusting in Me always.
I steady you; I protect you
I balance your mind as you wait on Me
I balance all that concerns you
I order your steps
I go ahead of you always
I am your rear guard
I teach you patience; a very difficult lesson
Remember the battle is mine. I go ahead. I lead as you surrender all to Me. Walk by faith and not by sight. Fear not nor be moved by outward appearances.
I AM the Sovereign
I AM the ALPHA and OMEGA
the great I AM
Only I can correct the wrongs
Only I can heal the wounds
Only I can bring forth the truth for I AM Truth
Only I will shut the mouths of the lions that oppose you
Only I will cause you to roar with confidence and delight
Only I will shut doors that no man can open
Only I will open doors that no man can shut
Only I will order your steps and shine Light upon it, for I AM Light
Only I will keep you along that narrow road
What do I require of thee? I require a repentant heart, your complete trust and your willing obedience. For when you trust Me and obey, then I will trust YOU to do work that others cannot be trusted to do, for they are not steadfast in their obedience.
I require your complete surrender. I require that you do justly, love mercy and walk humbly WITH [the Lord] your God. [Micah 6:8] I command fear to go, for My perfect love casts it out. I will not work amongst those with unbelief, for without faith it is impossible to please Me. [Heb 11:6] Did I not say ask and it shall be given you? [Mat 7:7] Have you not said that which is in My word? Lord God, I believe, help my unbelief. Only ask with the humbleness of a child, and I shall surely answer; yea, I will help.
Yet, you say: I have no fear; I do believe. There is always some fear if there is apprehension, hesitancy, struggle. Do not keep your heart in the things which are behind, as Lot's wife. Go forward, without looking back, fully trusting in Me. Truly let go of your past, for that door is shut. Surrender to Me; dying to self with its fleshly appetites and desires, and you shall surely live in Me and I in you.
Do you think that I do not understand the pain and the struggle in surrender? I was a living man, in the flesh, who had to completely surrender My body, My will and all into the hands of the Father, for the love and salvation of mankind. I travailed in the Garden of Gethsemane crying out to the Father, who did strengthen Me. My surrender cost Me My human life, but the victory... risen and alive I AM!
I was a man acquainted with sorrows: I bore your griefs. By My blood, you are saved; by My stripes you were healed. I will carry you until you regain your strength, for when you are weak, I AM strong! Did I not promise that I would restore the years that the locusts have eaten? It goes quickly enough when you draw nigh unto Me, abiding in Me.
There is only ONE way to victory. It is in repentance, faith, surrender, trust and obedience to the Father, with Me, Christ your Lord and Messiah living in you. Faith as small as a grain of mustard seed will order a mountain to move, and with no doubt in your heart, but with faith, that mountain shall indeed move.
I cannot lie. I will not disappoint you. I speak only truth for I AM truth. You are an overcomer. I reward overcomers for I know their suffering. You overcome by the blood of the Lamb (My blood, for I am Yahshua your Messiah) and the word of your testimony (I AM the word come in the flesh).
I alone see the heart. So, now trust! Be strong in faith, giving glory to Me. When the enemy comes in like a flood, I will lift up a standard against him. Resist the devil (satan and his evil hosts) and they will flee. Put on the full armor that I provided. The battle is already won and the victory is sure, for I am the Lord of the battles and I give victory. Go forth into battle with confidence.
I made an open show of principalities and powers and I took the keys of hell and death from satan. Trust in Me. Though you are weary of waiting, I say, ask and you shall receive. Ask Me what to do and I will answer. Wait for My sure answer and do not be afraid to ask Me to confirm all that you believe I am saying. In fact, it is well to do so, for it is written that you should try the spirit to see if it is of Me or not.
Yet, I do not dwell in the past. Thank Me for the plans I have for you; plans for good and not for evil. When everything and everyone seems so desperately against you, remember that what satan, the adversary intends for evil, I intend it for good. For you know that all things work together for good to them who love Me; to them who are called according to MY purpose. [Rom 8:28] Selah~
Now I have encouraged you further. I have not spoken in secret from the beginning. I have put a light upon your path and have instructed you in the way that you should go. Abide in Me and in My word, for surely you will know the way you are to go.
Time as you know it is soon up. Be peace makers with regards to your brethren and do not let the sun go down upon your anger.
Be ye angry, and sin not: let not the sun go down upon thy wrath
Blessed are the peacemakers, for they shall be called the children of God (Yhvh) [Mat 5:9]
Do not fear those who hate you for My name's sake, for as they hated Me, so shall they hate you, for the servant is not greater than the master. March into victory, for it is written, that he who endures to the end shall be saved. [Mat 10:22] There is joy in the presence of My angels for they go forth at My command and they delight in their Creator.
You have come too far... too far to give up now. Wait upon Me and you shall rise up with wings as eagles. The eagles gather...You will not weary; you will not faint when you wait upon Me, for I will strengthen you. If you took a direct hit by the enemy, even with your armor on, you may have been dazed and confused, angry and frustrated, yet you look to Me. You rise up...stronger; each time you overcome, your faith is strengthened and you become stronger.
Drink from the Living waters; drink of the new wine. [My word, My Spirit - My word is Spirit and it is Truth] Eat of the Bread of Life and regain your strength. Seek Me. Rest in me. Go forth for the enemy is defeated, yet he will say to you that you are the defeated one. He is the father of lies, a murderer from the beginning, for he knows that your victory is in Me. He seeks to stop you from being an overcomer, yet by the blood [of the Lamb] and the word of your testimony, you shall overcome. Get this down deep within your heart for it is truth, so that in the day of adversity, you shall not faint.
Take joy in Me, for I AM your strength. Do not look around you and become discouraged or fearful by what you see and hear, for great is the evil of these days, great is the lawlessness, great shall be the tribulation, great shall be the persecution, for so it is written, so it is and shall be. Did I not say, Let not your hearts be troubled? Your confidence is resting in Me, fully trusting that all is in My hands, including every detail of your life. Yet I also say, do not overlook good things that I have brought your way and into your life simply because it comes not as you thought it would come or be as you thought it would be.
Cast away all doubt. Rest in the peace that passes all understanding. Rest in agape love. I am just and bring forth justice and judgment. Let My hand that heals touch you and deliver you from turbulence [imbalance as the storm blows and the stream floods], doubts, turmoil within, conflicts within and without, and restlessness [impatience]. Yes, the great rain beats down, the strong winds of the storm do rage, yet I am He who calms the storm. I am the same, yesterday today and forever.
You will be transformed by My Spirit, by My might and by My power into a channel of blessing, a vessel of honor to go forth in My name, to speak to the poor, to bind up the brokenhearted, to proclaim liberty to the captives, to open the prison to them who are bound, to proclaim the acceptable year of [your] Lord, and the day of vengeance of [your] God, and to comfort those who mourn. [Is 61:1-3]
You will have calmness, composure, balance, tranquility in the midst of the storms; quietness, confidence, a delight, love and My perfect order of things. My peace I give you, not as the world gives, but My peace that passes all understanding. I AM Christ in you, the hope of glory. Selah~
You will be a sign and a wonder to those who knew you in your restless state and your brokenness, and I shall be glorified. The old wineskin shall be transformed into the new wineskin, for new wine can only be contained in new bottles (wineskin). Cry out to be ever filled to overflowing with My Spirit. Ask and it shall be given; seek and you shall find; knock and it shall be opened to you. [Mat 7:7]
You will be a shock and horror to those who have opposed you when they see what I have done in you and will do through you, as you abide in Me, the true Vine and I shall be glorified.
Why else would the enemy come strongly against you with his troops, whispering doubts, instilling fear and calling a defeat upon you? Yes, it is the enemy who glorifies the past with condemnation and endeavors to make you doubt and fear the future. He will whisper a thought and you will believe it is your thought.
Yet I say, cast down imaginations and every high thing that exalts itself against the knowledge of (your) God, bringing into captivity every thought to the obedience of Me (Christ) [2Cor 10:5] A thought may come that is seeded in doubt, 'God will understand if I try to help'... Yet I say, I will understand that you waver in trusting Me, for fear and unbelief did grip you.
Listen to Me and do My commandments, for faithfully and surely I guide you. Then you shall know what your part is to do, if I instruct you to do, or if I instruct you to wait. Do not set your hand to the plow and look back. For a season it may seem well, yet I tell you, it will fail you. It will tear you, to steal, kill and destroy. It shall not prosper.
Let go of the past; die to self and trust Me... Your soul will be satisfied for you will learn to drink deeply from My wells. Be patient, though this may be hard for you. Rest in Me. Abide in Me. Spend time with Me.
Is 30:7 Your strength is to sit still
Let your God arise and His enemies [and yours] will be scattered. Discouragement has tried to hold you down, and tried to keep you downtrodden and has robbed you of confidence and peace. Come to Me. I am not capricious and discouragement is not from Me. Do not reason and rationalize the answers; mentally resolving pressures and hurts and trying so hard to reason things out; casting doubt upon that which I give to you to delight your heart and satisfy your needs.
Lean not upon your own understanding... Seek Me and wait upon Me. Be anxious for nothing. Do not go ahead of Me, but neither lag behind Me. Things are now moving into place for your life. Things are now moving into place globally that were prophesied long ago.
Can you not perceive it nor comprehend it? Remember, My thoughts are not as man's thoughts nor are My ways as the ways of man. Do not look around in bewilderment or discouragement. Victory is assured. It is done. Now just do... This does not involve the past.
The ekklesia, My people must be as one in Me, moving in the power and fullness of My Spirit. Not all who say they are Mine, know Me. It is a time of dividing, and in days to come, it shall be more evident. This is where you will see division even amongst the sheep. O that My people, would return to their first love and walk in My ways; and I shall be their God and they shall be My people.
It is near the time of the selecting of the remnant; those of like-mind, [mind of Christ] with My Spirit, doing My will, trusting Me as they obey.
It is near the time where the sons of God shall manifest. It is near the time of the arrival of the Bridegroom.
Did David always remember the victories given to him when he fought a lion, or a bear, or Goliath and in many battles? Did he seek Me, cry out to Me and trust Me? Yes, he remembered well. He sought Me, crying out to Me, and even in moments of weakness and doubt, he rallied around, always trusting that I was with him ... even in the darkest hours.
Repent from not trusting Me fully in all areas. Repent of fear and unbelief for it opposes faith and trust. I called you out. It is I who separated you. You cannot go forward, when you are looking back.
It is not by might, nor by power but by My Spirit... Why are you cast down, o my soul? ... Hope thou in God Ps42: 5
I the Lord will hasten My word to perform it (MY timing is perfect)
I know what it the very best for you. Surrender yourself to My will for then shall I arise, the enemy will be scattered. I am in the midst of you. I am working. Can you not perceive it? I will soon intervene. You know My voice. Spend time with Me. Wait on Me; yes, I repeat this, for it seems to have need of repeating. Seek Me and wait upon Me. Stay (abide) in My presence in the secret place; there I shall soothe your soul and still all your fears. There your faith will overcome unbelief.
In delight and rejoicing you shall say, 'Truly, the Lord does all things well. Blessed are they whose hope is in the Lord.' Selah
For in You, o LORD do I hope: You will hear, o LORD my Elohim [Ps38:15]
Your holy King Jesus (Y'shua)
for HIS glory†
