Walk Humbly with Me



 April 11, 2013 - [o4.11.2o13]

Walk Humbly with Me
Since you are willing to learn, I teach you and instruct you in the way you should go.  Some of the lessons will be quite painful, but when you humble yourself in My sight, be assured that I shall lift you up strongly and place you upon solid ground.

Do not sit under condemnation for the mere reason that you are learning wisdom, at the cost of humility and love.  This is why the lessons are painful.  The flesh must die to self continuously, when you walk in love as well as humility.  Pride longs to rule and show itself strong.

Yet be not deceived; love judges righteous judgment and seeks only to please Me and not the arm of flesh.  Those who are Mine have secretly and earnestly prayed to be without spot or blemish, to be made worthy, perfect and whole.

To be dead to self, cleansed, purified and sanctified is to be ready to be filled to overflowing with My power and My glory.  Also be assured that much of what is going on in the headlines is a distraction for what is going on behind closed doors and within secret meetings.

Indeed, you must be aware of all that is going on in the world, within your own countries, within your own neighborhoods and within your own households.  Be wise as serpents and harmless as doves, for you are amongst wolves in the nation.


There are enemies in the camp.  As My Son knew, you also must know the Judas’ of your day, within your own surroundings.  All of My people come to times of serious decision-making, feeling pressure to make choices that they know are going to cost them.

Close family members and friends will endeavor to sway you to their line of thinking.  Some will oppose you and few, if any, may fully understand, especially if what I request of you does not fit into the category of what people deem normal.

It can be overwhelming, but those who come to Me, seeking My counsel will know what to do.  Obedience brings them peace, for things fall into place when good counsel is followed.

So shall My word be that goes forth out of My mouth: it shall not return unto Me void, but it shall accomplish that which I please, and it shall prosper in the thing whereto I sent it.  [Is 55:11]

My Word and My Spirit never conflict, for truth flows forth, absolute omni potens, for I AM El Shaddai (all-powerful, Omnipotence).  
Continue in seeking Me, in prayer, in the reading of My word and peace shall reside in you.

Peace I leave with you, My peace I give unto you: not as the world gives, give I unto you. Let not your heart be troubled, neither let it be afraid. [Jn 14:;27]

Keep aware, very aware, but do not be afraid.  What must come, will come.  Pray and keep focused, becoming increasingly observant.  A prayer for wisdom, knowledge and understanding is answered, when it comes from a heart of humility and love.

Do not be wise in your own eyes, but fear Me, understanding My power and authority.  Depart from evil and it shall be your health and strength.  Wait patiently upon Me, especially in My silence.  

I AM doing things that you cannot comprehend or understand.  By faith and not by sight…I honor those who walk in such a way.

Knowing that I love you; always remember that I AM for you and not against you.  This shall surely establish you and keep you in perfect peace.  Keep your eyes fixed on Me, laying all your concerns down before Me- in trust.  

You will know what to do in days ahead.  Believe Me for full healing and restoration to the Body.  Think upon Job and Naaman, the mighty man of valor.  Repentance and humility restored them both, as they listened to Me and obeyed.

Consider Job first…

His flesh is consumed away, that it cannot be seen; and his bones that were not seen [now] stick out.  Yea, his soul draws near unto the grave and his life to the destroyers.  

His flesh shall be fresher than a child’s: he shall return to the days of his youth: he shall pray to God (Yhwh), and He will be favorable to him: and He shall see his face with joy: for He will render unto man His righteousness. 
[Job 33:21-22; 25-26]

And the Lord turned the captivity of Job, when he prayed for his friends: also the Lord gave Job twice as much as he had before.  So the Lord blessed the latter end of Job more than his beginning… [ ]   [Job 42:10, part of 12]

Now consider Naaman…

Now Naaman, captain of the host of the king of Syria, was a great man with his master, and honorable because by him the Lord had given deliverance to Syria: he was a mighty man in valor, but he was a leper. [2Kin 5:1]

But Naaman was wroth (angry) and went away, and said, Behold, I thought, he (Elisha) will surely come out to me and stand, and call on the name of the Lord his God, and strike his hand (lay his hand) over the place and recover the leper.



Then he went down and dipped himself seven times in Jordan, according to the saying of the man of God: and his flesh came again like unto the flesh of a little child, and he was clean (healed).  

And he returned to the man of God, he (Naaman) and all his company and came, and stood before him: and he said, Behold, now I know that there is no God in all the earth, but in Israel: now therefore, I pray you, take a blessing of your servant.  [2Kin 5:11, 14-15]

Danger approaches quickly.  The overcoming weapons for fear are to trust and believe.  Believe Me for the things I say to you.  My people are going to rise up in My glory, in My power and with My strength.  

They shall do great things and through it all, I shall be glorified.  Fear not death, for I alone hold that hour in My hand.  Trust Me to be with you in all things.

For they overcame him, by the blood of the Lamb and the word of their testimony, and they loved not their life unto death.  [Rev 12:11]

Verily, verily (surely, surely) I say to you, he that believes on Me, the works that I do shall he do also; and greater works than these shall he do, because I go unto My Father. And whatsoever you shall ask in My name, that will I do, that the Father may be glorified in the Son.  If you shall ask any thing in My name, I will do it.  If you love Me, keep My commandments. 

There is no fear in love, but perfect love casts out fear because fear has torment.  He that fears is not made perfect (mature, whole) in love.  We love Him because He first loved us.  [Jn 14:12-14; 1Jn 4:6-7]

Day by day, step by step I shall direct you.  Keep watchful and keep praying.  I AM with you, even when you do not realize it and even when I AM silent.  

Go you therefore, and teach all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father, and of the Son, and of the Holy Ghost: Teaching them to observe all things whatsoever I have commanded you: and, lo, I AM with you always, even unto the end of the world. Amen.  [Mat 28:19, 20]
I have shown you what is good, and what do I require of you?  I require that you do justly, love mercy and to walk humbly with Me. [Mic 6:8]  Selah

for His glory alone
