Draw Near to Me

“As the deer pants for streams of water, so my soul pants for you, my God.”

Psalm 42:1

“Beloved, draw near to Me and I will draw near to you. Even as you long for My presence, so I long for your undivided attention. Do no let the things of this world distract and entice you; rather, delight yourself in Me.

“Truly, there is much competing for your attention in this hour, yet now more than ever is the time to remain singly focused on Me. My bride, I am calling you to return to your first love. As you continue to set your gaze upon Me and abide under My protective wing, the things of this world will grow dim and lose their grip on you.

“Beloved, you can have as much of Me as you desire. I never withhold myself from you, for your hunger is pleasing unto Me. I am here, and I am in your midst! Continue to draw near to Me, and I will draw near to you.”

“Blessed are those who hunger and thirst for righteousness, for they will be filled.”

Matthew 5:6

“Deep calls to deep in the roar of your waterfalls; all your waves and breakers have swept over me.”

Psalm 42:7

The Outcome Is Not Bleak

“I remain confident of this: I will see the goodness of the LORD in the land of the living. Wait for the LORD; be strong and take heart and wait for the LORD.”

Psalms 27:13-14

I sense the Lord’s heart of encouragement for His bride. The Lord says, “Beloved, the outcome is not bleak like the enemy is trying to get you to believe. Refuse to come into agreement with his lies, and be encouraged that I am working all things together for good, both in your personal life and for this nation. I delight in bringing good out of the enemy’s plot for evil.

“You intended to harm me, but God intended it for good to accomplish what is now being done, the saving of many lives.”

Genesis 50:20

“Lift your eyes to Me; I am where your help comes from (Psalm 121:1-2). Do not be fearful or overwhelmed, My precious child, for when you are weak, I am strong.

“That is why, for Christ’s sake, I delight in weaknesses, in insults, in hardships, in persecutions, in difficulties. For when I am weak, then I am strong.”

2 Corinthians 12:10

“Encourage yourself in Me, just as David did. Truly, My joy is your strength, and it is a powerful weapon of warfare. I am calling you to ascend to a higher place in Me. As written in My word, you are seated with Me in heavenly places.

“I will take what may look like the darkest night and I will cause My glorious light to shine fourth. I am using this shaking to equip My bride to rise up in the full authority that I have given her. I am placing My ring of authority on her finger; I am giving her courage in this hour to overcome all power of the enemy.

“I will place on his shoulder the key to the house of David; what he opens no one can shut, and what he shuts no one can open.”

Isaiah 22:22

“Truly, take heart and know that this will be your finest hour!”

Do Not Be Moved!

“The One enthroned in heaven laughs; the Lord scoffs at them.”

Psalm 2:4

The Lord says, “Do not be moved regardless of what you are seeing in the natural, for My purposes will surely prevail. The evil schemes of the wicked will be exposed and bought down. As written in My Word, I sit enthroned in the heavens and I laugh at the plans of the wicked (Psalm 2:4). There is much shaking taking place, yet even so, fear not and stay anchored to Me.

“Why do the nations conspire and the peoples plot in vain?”

Psalms 2:1

“I am sovereign; I am fully in control and I rule above it all. Continue to stay at your post of prayer. I am calling fourth My watchmen on the wall in this hour. Keep oil in your lamp and continue to pray. I am raising up My Esters for such a time as this. Be strong and courageous, and do not be moved!”

“and teaching them to obey everything I have commanded you. And surely I am with you always, to the very end of the age.”

Matthew 28:20

Your Heartache Will Become Your Launching Pad!

“Those who go out weeping, carrying seed to sow, will return with songs of joy, carrying sheaves with them.”

Psalm 126:6

“Beloved, that pain that you are currently feeling cannot compare to the joy that is coming. I am able to take the very heartache and use it as a launching pad to propel your farther into your destiny. As I did with Joseph, so I will do with you; I’ll take what the enemy meant to do for harm and use it for your good (Genesis 50:20)!

“Fear not, neither be dismayed. I am working even in the mess. Who but I can bring beauty from ashes?

“and provide for those who grieve in Zion– to bestow on them a crown of beauty instead of ashes, the oil of joy instead of mourning, and a garment of praise instead of a spirit of despair. They will be called oaks of righteousness, a planting of the LORD for the display of his splendor.”

Isaiah 61:3

“Open your hands and freely surrender all to Me. Truly, unless a seed falls to the ground and dies the can be no harvest (John 12:24). The death that many are experiencing will soon give way to new life; this can include the death of a relationship, a dream, or the death of how you thought things would be. Know that I am always working for your good. Trust Me and release all outcomes to Me.

“‘For my thoughts are not your thoughts, neither are your ways my ways,’ declares the LORD. ‘As the heavens are higher than the earth, so are my ways higher than your ways and my thoughts than your thoughts.'”

Isaiah 55:8-9

“Be encouraged and know that your story is far from over. Truly, the best is yet to come. Trust Me in the process, and be assured that I am bringing you out of this restricted place and into a spacious place of freedom. The painful areas that you are walking through will be used one day to help others. As you yield to Me, I will take your pain and use it as a launching pad! Fear not, for I am working mightily in your midst!”

“He brought me out into a spacious place; he rescued me because he delighted in me.”

Psalm 18:19

Stay In Position!

“I will stand at my watch and station myself on the ramparts; I will look to see what he will say to me, and what answer I am to give to this complaint.”

Habakkuk 2:1

The Lord says, “Even as this new year is upon you, stay in position! Many will be receiving marching orders, while others will experience rapid- even overnight- changes. Fear not, for I am with you! Listen to My still small voice and my council above all else, even the well meaning opinions of others.

“Fear of man will prove to be a snare, but whoever trusts in the Lord is kept safe.”

Proverbs 29:25

“Your obedience is key in this season. As written in My Word, those who are willing and obedient will eat the good of the land (Isaiah 1:19). Stay in position, and trust Me in this new year!

“Trust in the Lord with all your heart and lean not on your own understanding”

Proverbs 3:5

Sit at My Table

“You prepare a table before me in the presence of my enemies. You anoint my head with oil; my cup overflows.”


Psalm 23:5

Recently while experiencing some adverse circumstances, I have been seeking the Lord. While spending time in His presence, I heard Him speak with such clarity. “Come, sit at my table!” Immediately Psalm 23:5 came to mind, and as I continued to press in to what He was saying, I saw a beautiful banqueting table spread out with a delicious feast!

This image has an empty alt attribute; its file name is francois-pistorius-527700-unsplash-768x512.jpg

Again, I heard the Lord say, “Sit at My table!” My situation did not instantly change, however, as I continued to spend time with the Lord and ‘sit,’ His tangible presence became so thick that I didn’t want to leave. The Lord kept ministering to Me, showing me that our human ways are not His ways.

“‘For my thoughts are not your thoughts, neither are your ways my ways,’
declares the Lord. ‘As the heavens are higher than the earth, so are my ways higher than your ways and my thoughts than your thoughts.'”

Isaiah 55:8-9

Often times, when we are experiencing difficult situations, it is our human nature to try and fix things in our own strength; however, I believe the Lord is encouraging us. As written in His word, “It’s neither by our might nor power that we will be victorious, rather it’s by His spirit (Zechariah 4:6).”

The Lord is saying to His people, “stay low and keep your heart postured in humility. Continue to abide in My presence and sit at My table. Watch what I will do!”

God did bring breakthrough and work in my circumstances as I stayed in a place of rest, trusting Him and rehearsing his faithfulness!

“Taste and see that the Lord is good; blessed is the one who takes refuge in him.”

Psalm 34:8

May I encourage you today that regardless of what you are going through, the Lord is calling you to come sit at His table. He truly does prepare a feast for us, even in the presence of our enemies. As we abide under the shelter of His wing, we are favored and protected through the fiercest storms.

“The Lord is my best friend and my shepherd. I always have more than enough. He offers a resting place for me in his luxurious love.
His tracks take me to an oasis of peace, the quiet brook of bliss. That’s where he restores and revives my life. He opens before me pathways to God’s pleasure and leads me along in his footsteps of righteousness
so that I can bring honor to his name.”

Psalm 23:1-3 TPT

I Celebrate You!

“The Lord your God is with you, the Mighty Warrior who saves. He will take great delight in you; in his love he will no longer rebuke you, but will rejoice over you with singing.”

Zephaniah 3:17

The Lord says, “My precious child, I do not merely tolerate you, but I celebrate you! I rejoice over you with singing. I knit you together in your mother;s womb so that you are fearfully and wonderfully made (Psalms 139:14). My loving thoughts for you outnumbers the very grains of sand on the sea shore.

“I know at times others, even those closest to you, have wounded you by their words and their actions. This grieves Me, for it is not My heart towards you.

“Do not become discouraged when others do not see you as I see you. Often, it is their own wounds and insecurities that cause them to lash out at you. Even so, continue to love them and move in the opposite spirit. Vengeance is mine, so refuse to take matters into your own hands (Romans 12:14).

“Keep being faithful and refuse to get weary in well doing. I am so pleased with you; I celebrate you!”

“Therefore, since we are surrounded by such a great cloud of witnesses, let us throw off everything that hinders and the sin that so easily entangles. And let us run with perseverance the race marked out for us”

Hebrews 12:1

Rehearse My Faithfulness

“For the word of the Lord is right and true;
he is faithful in all he does.”

Psalm 33:4

The Lord says, “Refuse to be moved by the challenging circumstances that you are currently encountering, rather draw upon and rehearse my faithfulness! Faithful I have been and faithful I will continue to be. I am the God who always causes you to triumph!

“But thanks be to God, who always leads us as captives in Christ’s triumphal procession and uses us to spread the aroma of the knowledge of him everywhere.”

2 Corinthians 2:14

“Beloved, you are not stuck! I am leading you, even amidst the adversity. Even as I led the children of Israel through the Red Sea and made a way where there seemed to be no way, I will do the same for you.

“See, I am doing a new thing! Now it springs up; do you not perceive it? I am making a way in the wilderness and streams in the wasteland.”

Isaiah 43:19

“Keep your eyes locked on Me and magnify Me. Your circumstances are subject to change, but I am the God who remains the same yesterday, today, and forever (Hebrews 13:8)!

“Be encouraged, for you are crossing over into new territory. I am leading you into victory. Continue to war with my word; for as you decree a thing, it shall be established (Job 22:28).

“This is your season of advancement. Pay no mind to the ‘smoke and mirrors’ that the enemy is throwing up. Surely, My plan for your life cannot be thwarted. Continue to stay aligned with the truths of My Word.

“”I know that you can do all things; no purpose of yours can be thwarted.”

Job 42:2

“Draw upon Me and rehearse My faithfulness of times past; you will see and partake of My goodness in the land of the living (Psalm 27:13).”

“For the Lord your God is the one who goes with you to fight for you against your enemies to give you victory.”

Deuteronomy 20:4

Even in the Stillness, I Am Working!

“After the earthquake came a fire, but the Lord was not in the fire. And after the fire came a gentle whisper.”

1 Kings 19:12

The Lord says, “Know that I am working mightily even in the stillness. Just because you do not see movement in the natural, be encouraged, for I am working in your life behind the scenes. I am lining special things up, even surprises!

“Do not lose heart and do not become weary in well doing. Truly your season of reaping is close at hand. Be strong and of great courage! I’ve seen the private battles that you’ve endured and I’m bringing the vindication in your life. I am the God who goes before you and behind you. I fight your battles, you need only to be still (Exodus 14:14).

“Watch now as I make the rough places smooth and the crooked places straight. You will look for your enemy and see him no more.

“Though you search for your enemies, you will not find them. Those who wage war against you will be as nothing at all.

Isaiah 41:12

“Again, I tell you to be strong and of good courage. I am working on your behalf, even in the stillness.”

“Wait for the Lord; be strong and take heart and wait for the Lord.”

Psalm 27:14

In the Breaking, You Are Breaking Through

“I know your deeds. See, I have placed before you an open door that no one can shut. I know that you have little strength, yet you have kept my word and have not denied my name.”

Revelation 3:8

Many of you are feeling such an intense onslaught from the enemy that you feel as if you are at your breaking point. Even so, the Lord says, “In the breaking, you are actually breaking through!” The Lord is encouraging us right now to look beyond what we see in the natural. Breakthrough does not always look how we think it will. It is written that as high as the Heavens are above the earth, so his thoughts as ways are higher than ours (Isaiah 55:8-9).

Do not back down, even amidst the struggle and pressure that you are currently experiencing. Truly, the Lord is at work! There’s always darkness before the dawn. Though your weeping may endure for a night, His joy comes in the morning (Psalms 30:5). You may feel weak and empty, but the truth is the Lord is strengthening you amidst the trial

“Three times I pleaded with the Lord to take it away from me. But he said to me, ‘My grace is sufficient for you, for my power is made perfect in weakness.’ Therefore I will boast all the more gladly about my weaknesses, so that Christ’s power may rest on me. That is why, for Christ’s sake, I delight in weaknesses, in insults, in hardships, in persecutions, in difficulties. For when I am weak, then I am strong.”

2 Corinthians 12:8-10

Keep pressing forward. Keep fighting the good fight. He is mighty in your midst, and regardless of how it appears or how it feels, God is bringing the breakthrough!

“The One who breaks open the way will go up before them; they will break through the gate and go out. Their King will pass through before them, the Lord at their head.”

Micah 2:13

Keep Sowing Your Seed

Let us not become weary in doing good, for at the proper time we will reap a harvest if we do not give up.

Galatians 6:9

The Lord is saying, “Keep sowing your seed! In the midst of dishonor, continue to sow honor; in the midst of lack, continue being generous. As it is written in My Word, ‘A generous person will prosper; whoever refreshes others will be refreshed’ (Proverbs 11:25).

“Beloved, there is absolutely nothing that escapes My notice. I see your tears, and I collect them in a bottle (Psalm 56:8). You are doing so much better than you realize. You are breaking up the hard ground, and your season of reaping is at hand! Yes, a mighty harvest is much closer than you think.

He will not crush the weakest reed
or put out a flickering candle.
Finally he will cause justice to be victorious.

Matthew 12:20

“I am well pleased with you, My child. Continue to fight a good fight and carry on, even when you feel as though you have nothing left to give. Surely I will give you beauty for ashes, and I will turn your mourning into joy (Isaiah 61:3). I am ever-close to you now; lean into Me and My goodness!”

Those who go out weeping, carrying seed to sow, will return with songs of joy, carrying sheaves with them.

Psalm 126:6

I See You!

“She gave this name to the Lord who spoke to her: ‘You are the God who sees me,’ for she said, ‘I have now seen the One who sees me.'”

Genesis 16:13

The Lord says, “I see you, Beloved! I see the very injustices that you have suffered even at the hands of others. Yet even through the heartache and tears, you have maintained your integrity by keeping your heart pure. Now, allow Me to take it from here.

“Though at times the pressure feels almost more than you can bare and you are tempted to rise up and defend yourself, resist the urge; know that I will bring the vindication as you continue to trust Me and be faithful to walk forward on the path that I have called you to.

“Continue to let your light shine, knowing that as you do good unto others you are also giving to Me (proverbs 19:17). Though you feel weary and at times even long to give up, continue to trust Me. You are not only making a difference in this generation but for future generations to come. Even as I was with Hagar during her moments of suffering, so I am with you also. Trust I am the God who sees. Know that you are about to enter into a season of great reward (Galatians 6:9). Stay on the path I have placed you on and keep walking forward.”

“They will rebuild the ancient ruins and restore the places long devastated; they will renew the ruined cities that have been devastated for generations.”

Isaiah 61:4

I Am in Your Midst!

“‘And I myself will be a wall of fire around it,’ declares the Lord, ‘and I will be its glory within.’

Zechariah 2:5

The Lord says, “Beloved, I am mighty in your midst! I am a wall of fire around you, protecting you on every side. Though in the moment you feel surrounded, the reality is that are surrounded by Me! I am working everything together for your good, both the big and small things alike. I will be faithful to perfect all that concerns you (Psalm 138:8).

“Trust Me with everything, My Child, and be encouraged that regardless of how things appear in the natural, I am working behind the scenes in your life. I am lining up great things for you. Yes, even surprises! I delight in blessing you. Be encouraged, your tears will soon turn to great joy!”

“Those who sow with tears will reap with songs of joy.”

Psalm 126:5

“Just like the clay, continue to be soft and pliable in My hands. Do not fear, for I am in your midst!”

“God is within her, she will not fall; God will help her at break of day.”

Psalm 46:5

Stay in the Secret Place

Whoever dwells in the shelter of the Most High
will rest in the shadow of the Almighty.
I will say of the Lord, “He is my refuge and my fortress,
my God, in whom I trust.”

Psalm 91:1-2

“Stay in the secret place and keep pressing into Me. As it is written in My Word, ‘Blessed are those who hunger and thirst for righteousness, for they will be filled’ (Matthew 5:6). I know that you are feeling dry and weary, but even now, I am very near to you.

The word is very near you; it is in your mouth and in your heart so you may obey it.

Deuteronomy 30:14

“Keep pressing into Me, Beloved; as you do, I will pour out the oil of gladness upon you. Truly I prepare a table before you in the presence of your enemies and your cup overflows (Psalm 23:5). Know that your prayers are not in vain, but that they are powerful, effective, and avail much (James 5:16)

“Pour out your heart to Me, for I am near to you! The heaviness that your are feeling will lift; stay in the secret place with Me,” says the Lord.

I will stand at my watch
and station myself on the ramparts;
I will look to see what he will say to me,
and what answer I am to give to this complaint.

“New Territory and Rapid Acceleration!”

“Every place that the sole of your foot will tread upon I have given to you, just as I promised to Moses.”

Joshua 1:3

The Lord is saying today, “In this season, I am increasing your territory and your influence. Just as it is written in My Word, ‘everywhere your foot treads, I have given you the land’ (Joshua 1:3).

“I am rapidly accelerating things in your life. You’ll see that what has taken some years to accomplish will seem like only moments for you. This is a time of forward movement and momentum. Beloved, do not shrink back! Walk forward boldly in My strength and confidence, for it’s not by your own might or power, but by My Spirit dwelling in you (Zechariah 4:6).

“Though I am leading you in a way that you have not previously known, I will not fail you, My Bride. Fear not the changes ahead, but instead hold tight to the truth that I am with you always, even to the end of the age (Matthew 28:20). I will continue to be your fire by night and your cloud by day (Exodus 13:21). Put no confidence in your own flesh, but rather continue to trust and lean into Me completely. There is blessing in your obedience. Rise up and walk forward with boldness, for I am I am your exceedingly great reward.”

“If you are willing and obedient, you shall eat the good of the land.”

I Am For You

What, then, shall we say in response to these things? If God is for us, who can be against us?

Romans 8:31

The Lord is saying, “Beloved, I am for you! I see your areas of struggle and weakness, yet when I look at you, I view you through the finished work of the cross. I say that you are altogether lovely, My darling, and there is no flaw in you (Song of Songs 4:7). I know you more intimately than anyone, yet I love you the most. My love for you is perfect and untainted.

“…so that Christ may dwell in your hearts through faith—that you, being rooted and grounded in love, may have strength to comprehend with all the saints what is the breadth and length and height and depth,  and to know the love of Christ that surpasses knowledge, that you may be filled with all the fullness of God.”

Ephesians 3:17-19

“I see just how far you’ve come on this journey. For though man looks at the outward appearance, I look at the heart (1 Samuel 16:7). I see your desire to do good and to please Me. I am very near to you, Beloved. My Word is in your mouth and in your heart (Romans 10:8). I am closer than the very air you breathe.

“This is what the Lord says:

“Let not the wise boast of their wisdom
or the strong boast of their strength
or the rich boast of their riches,
but let the one who boasts boast about this:
that they have the understanding to know me,
that I am the Lord, who exercises kindness,
justice and righteousness on earth,
for in these I delight,”
declares the Lord.

Jeremiah 9:23-24

“I am, and always will be, your ever-present help in times of trouble. You will come to know that your biggest asset is living in intimacy with Me. I am pleased with you, and My love for you is unchanging and everlasting. Keep clinging tightly to My hand; I will be faithful to lead and guide you along the way. My strength is made perfect in your weakness. Stay close to Me, for I am with you!”

When you pass through the waters, I will be with you; and when you pass through the rivers, they will not sweep over you. When you walk through the fire, you will not be burned; the flames will not set you ablaze.

Isaiah 43:2

Follow My Still Small Voice!

“Whether you turn to the right or to the left, your ears will hear a voice behind you, saying, ‘This is the way; walk in it.'”

Isaiah 30:21

“Beloved, follow My still small voice! Do not be concerned about what others may say or think about you, rather be obedient to Me. Make it a priority above all else to hear and obey My voice; I always have your best interest in mind. You are protected when you stay under My wing.

“As written in My Word, the fear of man is a snare, but those who trust in Me are kept safe (Proverbs 29:25). Everything that can be shaken is being shaken right now, so be anchored and do not be swayed by the wind and the waves.

“See to it that you do not refuse him who speaks. If they did not escape when they refused him who warned them on earth, how much less will we, if we turn away from him who warns us from heaven? At that time his voice shook the earth, but now he has promised, ‘Once more I will shake not only the earth but also the heavens.’ The words ‘once more’ indicate the removing of what can be shaken—that is, created things—so that what cannot be shaken may remain.

Hebrews 12:25-27

“In this season I am pruning away certain things in your life; allow Me to do the work and simply abide in Me. To whom much is given, much will be required.

“But the one who does not know and does things deserving punishment will be beaten with few blows. From everyone who has been given much, much will be demanded; and from the one who has been entrusted with much, much more will be asked.”

Luke 12:48 

“Not everyone will understand the unique path that I have placed you on. In fact, some will falsely accuse you and speak out against you. Refuse to take offense and keep walking forward with your hand to the plow. Your reward will be great both now and in eternity.

“And everyone who has left houses or brothers or sisters or father or mother or wife or children or fields for my sake will receive a hundred times as much and will inherit eternal life.”

Matthew 19:29

“I am with you and I am for you. Find your sole security and identity in Me alone! Continue to stay in the secret place and follow my still small voice.”

So do not fear, for I am with you; do not be dismayed, for I am your God. I will strengthen you and help you; I will uphold you with my righteous right hand. All who rage against you will surely be ashamed and disgraced; those who oppose you will be as nothing and perish. Though you search for your enemies, you will not find them. Those who wage war against you will be as nothing at all.

Isaiah 41:10-12

Stay Aligned!

“Nations are in uproar, kingdoms fall; he lifts his voice, the earth melts. The Lord Almighty is with us; the God of Jacob is our fortress.

Psalm 46:7-8

The Lord says, “Stay aligned and do not abandon your post (Habakkuk 2:1). Beloved, this is the time to consecrate yourself to Me like never before, staying in a place of prayer and intercession. Make sure that your words and thoughts are aligning with My truth and all that I have spoken.

“May the words of my mouth and the meditation of my heart be pleasing to you, O LORD, my rock and my redeemer.”

Psalm 19:14

“Nothing is taking Me by surprise. I am in control! As written in My Word, ‘The One who rules in heaven laughs. The Lord scoffs at them’ (Psalms 2:4 NLT).

“I am calling forth My Bride to partner with Me through prayer and intercession. Open your mouth and call out things not as though they are. Life and death are in the power of the tongue, so speak life (Proverbs 18:24)!

“You will also decree a thing, and it will be established for you; And light will shine on your ways.”

Job 22:28 NAS

“Arise, My Love, and awake from your slumber. Wield your sword and keep watch through the season of darkness. It has been declared, ‘If My people, who are called by My Name, will humble themselves and pray and seek my face and turn from their wicked ways, I will hear from heaven and heal their land’ (2 Chronicles 7:14).

“Refuse to listen to negative reports or give in to doubt; rather, have the vision of Joshua and Caleb. Truly, there are more for you than against you (2 Kings 6:16).

“The Lord said to Joshua, ‘Do not be afraid of them; I have given them into your hand. Not one of them will be able to withstand you.'”

Joshua 10:8

“I am working behind the scenes, regardless of how things may appear in the natural. Rise up and stay aligned! Remember, do not abandon your posts,” says the Lord!

“The horse is made ready for the day of battle, but victory rests with the Lord.”

Proverbs 21:31

I Will Steady You!

“Then they cried out to the LORD in their trouble, and he brought them out of their distress.”

Psalm 107:28-29

The Lord says, “My child, when you feel the wind and the waves crashing against you, simply cry out to Me and I will steady you! As written in My word, the righteous cry out to Me and hear them; I deliver them from all their troubles (Psalms 34:17). Even if you have gotten off course, simply call to Me and I will put you back on the right path.

“For I resist the proud but give much grace to the humble.”

Proverbs 3:34

“Truly, My mercies and compassion are new every morning. Great is My faithfulness to you (Lamentations 3:23)! Do not waste another moment of regret worrying about past failures, simply receive My fresh grace for today and walk forward.

“For though a righteous man falls seven times, he shall rise!”

Proverbs 24:16

“I am with you and I am for you! Nothing can ever separate you from My perfect love.”

“Who shall separate us from the love of Christ? Shall trouble or hardship or persecution or famine or nakedness or danger or sword? As it is written: ‘For your sake we face death all day long; we are considered as sheep to be slaughtered.’ No, in all these things we are more than conquerors through him who loved us. For I am convinced that neither death nor life, neither angels nor demons, neither the present nor the future, nor any powers, neither height nor depth, nor anything else in all creation, will be able to separate us from the love of God that is in Christ Jesus our Lord.”

Romans 8:35-38

It’s a New Day!

“But for you who revere my name, the sun of righteousness will rise with healing in its rays. And you will go out and frolic like well-fed calves.”

Malachi 4:2

The Lord says, “It’s a new day! I’m wiping away the pain of your former season. I’m bringing you out of captivity and into a large place of freedom!

“He brought me out into a spacious place; he rescued me because he delighted in me.”

Psalm 18:19

“Truly, I’m making all things new for you (Isaiah 43:18-19). Beloved, even amidst the great shaking and political unrest that is currently taking place, I am doing something new, and it is a good work! I will take what looks to be the worst of times and make it into the best of times. Did I not cause Joseph to prosper when those around him were experiencing famine and drought? I will do the same for you.

“The Lord was with Joseph so that he prospered, and he lived in the house of his Egyptian master. When his master saw that the Lord was with him and that the Lord gave him success in everything he did, Joseph found favor in his eyes and became his attendant. Potiphar put him in charge of his household, and he entrusted to his care everything he owned.”

Genesis 39:2-4

“No longer rehearse the hurts and disappointments of the past, rather allow My newness to wash over you like sweet, refreshing rain.

“You gave abundant showers, O God; you refreshed your weary inheritance.”

Psalm 68:9

“Let hope and songs of praise arise! Expect to see My very best in every area of your life. This is your turn around season; the best is yet to come! The enemy of your soul has been working overtime to bring anxiety regarding your future, but it is all a lie! As written in My Word, I know the plans I have for you; they are not to harm you, but rather to give you a hope and a future (Jeremiah 29:11).

“Truly, you will testify of My goodness and faithfulness in the land of the living (Psalm 27:13)! Rejoice, it’s a new day!”

“Then your light will break forth like the dawn, and your healing will quickly appear; then your righteousness will go before you, and the glory of the Lord will be your rear guard.”

Isaiah 58:8

I Have Rescued You

My true hero comes to my rescue, for the Lord alone is my Savior. What a feast of favor and bliss He gives His people! Pause in His Presence.

Psalm 3:8 (TPT)

The Lord says, “My Bride, do not forget all that I’ve rescued you from. I, alone, am the One who has drawn you out of the deep waters and placed you on a firm foundation (Psalm 18:16). I am your true Hero, your ever-present help in times of need. I am your constant through both the good and the bad; I am the Friend who sticks closer than a brother (Proverbs 18:24).

“Even in the seemingly mundane seasons of your life, encourage yourself in Me, even as David did. Remember how far you’ve come and all that I’ve delivered you out of. Draw on My faithfulness and the very testimonies of My goodness throughout your life! Be encouraged and know that faithful I have always been, and faithful I’ll continue to be. I love you with an everlasting love, for I have rescued you!”

He reached down from on high and took hold of me;
He drew me out of deep waters.
He rescued me from my powerful enemy,
from my foes, who were too strong for me.
They confronted me in the day of my disaster,
but the Lord was my support.
He brought me out into a spacious place;
He rescued me because He delighted in me.

Psalm 18:16-19

A Season of Victory and Recovery

“The horse is made ready for the day of battle, but victory rests with the Lord.”

Proverbs 21:31

The Lord says, “This is your season of victory and recovery! I’m restoring all that the enemy has robbed you of; nothing missing, nothing broken. I will recover all you have lost and more!

“Yet if he is caught, he must pay seven fold, though it costs him all the wealth of his house.”

Proverbs 6:31

“Do not look to the former, for I am doing a new thing. Do you not perceive it (Isaiah 43:19)? Beloved, this is a time of divine acceleration. It’s a time to celebrate! I’m not just restoring one area of your life, rather I will breakthrough in all areas where you have experienced loss. I’m renewing health, finances, and even relationships. Truly nothing is beyond My repair.

“I will repay you for the years the locusts have eaten— the great locust and the young locust, the other locusts and the locust swarm— my great army that I sent among you. You will have plenty to eat, until you are full, and you will praise the name of the Lord your God, who has worked wonders for you; never again will my people be shamed.”

Joel 2:25

“Do not lose hope; I am honoring your faith and your fervent prayers. You have stood strong. You have declared My Word even when you saw no visible sign of breakthrough in the natural realm. Know that your very tears have been fertilizing the seeds that you have sown through intercession. I have been doing a deep and hidden work under the surface, and soon it shall spring forth. You shall see it and you shall know it.

“Praise Me in advance, and be encouraged that this is your season of victory and recovery!”

“When the Lord restored the fortunes of Zion, we were like those who dreamed. Our mouths were filled with laughter, our tongues with songs of joy. Then it was said among the nations, ‘The Lord has done great things for them.’ The Lord has done great things for us, and we are filled with joy. Restore our fortunes, Lord, like streams in the Negev. Those who sow with tears will reap with songs of joy. Those who go out weeping, carrying seed to sow, will return with songs of joy, carrying sheaves with them.”

Psalm 126:1-6

Abide

The Lord says, “Continue to abide in Me. I will be your safe place when everything around you is constantly changing. Be encouraged. for I am the God that is the same yesterday, today, and forever (Hebrews 13:8).

Allow Me to be your anchor, for apart from me you can do nothing, but with Me you and do all things (John 15:5). My Bride, I’m calling you to abide in Me like never before. I alone am your very source of life, and through Me all things are being held together (Colossians 1:17). Even when everything around you is shaking, I will remain steadfast.

“God is our refuge and strength, an ever-present help in trouble. Therefore we will not fear, though the earth give way and the mountains fall into the heart of the sea, though its waters roar and foam and the mountains quake with their surging. There is a river whose streams make glad the city of God, the holy place where the Most High dwells. God is within her, she will not fall; God will help her at break of day.”

Psalm 46:1-5

“Even as Mary Magdalene did, choose to sit My feet; continue to rest in My presence and pour out your love upon Me. As you make Me the true delight of your heart, all of these other things will fall into place. Simply abide.”

“Take delight in the Lord, and he will give you the desires of your heart.”

Psalm 37:4

Do Not Back Down!

“From the days of John the Baptist until now, the kingdom of heaven has been subjected to violence, and violent people have been raiding it.”

Matthew 11:12

“Many are feeling intense warfare in this season. If you have been feeling heaviness, exhaustion, and attacks against your mind, know that there is an increase in supernatural activity this time of year. Even so, you are highly protected under My wings, and nothing will harm you.

“I have given you authority to trample on snakes and scorpions and to overcome all the power of the enemy; nothing will harm you.”

Luke 10:19

“The enemy is seeking to intimidate and silent many of the prophetic voices. However, do not back down, rather press into the resistance that you have been encountering. Greater am I on the inside of you than he that is in the world (1 John 4:4).

“Don’t succumb to fear, for My perfect love casts out all fear, and I have given you the mind of Christ (John 4:18). You are overcoming and advancing My Kingdom. Darkness is forced to retreat when you open your mouth and utter My words.

“Beloved, refuse to get weary in well doing. Do not concern yourself with the opinions of others; you may not feel celebrated here on this earth, but all of heaven rejoices, for you are a forerunner plowing a path for future generations. You are a generation changer! Do not back down!

“Therefore, since we are surrounded by such a great cloud of witnesses, let us throw off everything that hinders and the sin that so easily entangles. And let us run with perseverance the race marked out for us…”

Hebrews 12:1

“Your people will rebuild the ancient ruins and will raise up the age-old foundations; you will be called Repairer of Broken Walls, Restorer of Streets with Dwellings.”

Isaiah 58:12

I’m Working for Your Good!

“As for you, you meant evil against me, but God meant it for good in order to bring about this present result, to preserve many people alive.”

Genesis 50:20

The Lord says, “My child, I see the injustices that you have experienced at the hands of others, and know this: what they intended for your harm, I will use it for your good (Genesis 50:20)! You have continued to praise Me in the midst of adversity, so take heart and know that I am arising. I will contend with those who have been warring against you, you only need to be still.

“But this is what the Lord says: ‘Yes, captives will be taken from warriors,
and plunder retrieved from the fierce; I will contend with those who contend with you, and your children I will save.'”

Isaiah 49:25

“Beloved, refuse to take matters into your own hands. Rather than seeking to defend yourself, continue to trust in Me.

“In repentance and rest is your salvation, in quietness and trust is your strength…”

Isaiah 30:15

“I have not been blind to the tears that you have cried nor have I been deaf to your prayers and petitions. I am moving on your behalf. If you ask for bread, I will never give you a stone (Matthew 7:9).

“I will give you double for all the heartache that you have endured. I am restoring honor to your name and removing the reproach. I’m correcting the wrongs and bringing justice to the areas where you have been falsely accused. Be assured that I’m working for your good!”

“‘Because you got a double dose of trouble and more than your share of contempt, your inheritance in the land will be doubled and your joy go on forever. Because I, God, love fair dealing and hate thievery and crime, I’ll pay your wages on time and in full, and establish my eternal covenant with you.'”

Isaiah 61:7-8 (MSG)
