Waiting in the Wings

For the earnest expectation of the creation eagerly waits for the revealing of the sons of God.

Healing Oil

Luke 8:43-48 (TPT) In the crowd that day was a woman who had suffered greatly for twelve years from slow bleeding. Even though she had spent all that she had on healers, she was still suffering. Pressing in through the crowd, she came up behind Jesus and touched the tassel of his prayer shawl. Instantly her bleeding stopped and she was healed.

You have grasped at the hem of My garment, and now flows forth the healing oil of YHVH Rapha. What was once broken in you is now healed. Arise and go forth, Beloved. Fly with might, armed for battle with the new wings I have given you. Indeed, your rebirth has come through many trials and tribulations. You are now a new creation, made in My image and likeness. Therefore, walk boldly in the power of My Spirit and in My authority. I send you into the world to trample on serpents and scorpions, and over all the power of the enemy.

In this fresh flow and impartation of My Spirit, a new song will flow from your lips. This song will glorify Me and prepare the way for Me in the earth. My heart—the heart of your Bridegroom—is at the center of everything that you do. You will speak with wisdom, tender love, authority, and encouragement to those who ache for the hope of new life. The healing oil of My Spirit will drip from your lips, and it will fall upon and mend the wounds of every heart that you encounter.

My Bride, you are loved. You are treasured. You are healed. Most of all, you are empowered through Me. As I continue to renew you day by day, give unto others as it has been given unto you. Just as I impart My Spirit and My healing to you, you are commissioned to do the same for others. Now, go forth, clothed in My might and My love, and filled to overflowing with My Spirit!

Mark 16:17-18 (VOICE) And these signs will follow those who believe: they will be able to cast out demons in My name, speak with new tongues, take up serpents, drink poison without being harmed, and lay their hands on the sick to heal them.

1 Corinthians 12:7-9 (VOICE) Each believer has received a gift that manifests the Spirit’s power and presence. That gift is given for the good of the whole community. The Spirit gives one person a word of wisdom, but to the next person the same Spirit gives a word of knowledge. Another will receive the gift of faith by the same Spirit, and still another gifts of healing—all from the one Spirit.

Dive Deep

Jeremiah 1:5 (AMPC) Before I formed you in the womb I knew [and] approved of you [as My chosen instrument], and before you were born I separated and set you apart, consecrating you; [and] I appointed you as a prophet to the nations.

Beloved, I created you that I might know you. I brought you forth that you might explore the depths of who I am. I am love and it is My good pleasure that you would live forever immersed in Me. My love is endless and fathomless, far deeper than the oceans. I am worth knowing, and I take great joy when you pursue Me with all of your being.

In your encounters with Me, you will sense the depths of My nature, a world without end that beckons you to dive deeper and deeper. When you sense these depths, resist the urge to give into the fear of losing yourself in Me. Be a bold explorer of My heart, knowing that as you lose yourself in the waves of My love you will truly find yourself there. You will inevitably soak in more and more of My nature until you resonate with the sound of My voice. Dive deep, beloved, and let yourself be overwhelmed. In your pursuit of Me, allow yourself to be transformed into an instrument of My Love.

Let My Voice Roar Through You

Matthew 10:27 (NKJV) Whatever I tell you in the dark, speak in the light; and what you hear in the ear, preach on the housetops.

Beloved, you are one who continually sits at My feet. You eat from My hand and are eager to soak in every word that I say. As a result, you know My voice. Even more, your persistence in maintaining intimacy with Me means that you know My heart. The result of your intimacy and choice to seek Me above all else means that My voice now bubbles up from within you continually. I have rubbed off on you and there is no turning back, My love!

When I call you to step forward and speak on My behalf, do not be surprised when you are met by a storm of contrary voices. As you know, a servant is not greater than his master. If the world spoke lies against Me and tried to silence Me, then do not be surprised or alarmed that the world desires to do the same to you. Whether this storm of voices are echoes from your past or part of your present, resist the urge to come into agreement with them. For I have not called you to back down. Instead, make an effort to still yourself and find My voice again. You will know it because it roars above the rest! I speak in love and truth and faithfully declare that you are ever the apple of My eye.

Remember that your voice carries weight, beloved—on heaven and on earth. Like a musical instrument that has been shaped to bring forth a unique sound, you have been shaped and refined to speak with authority, to bring forth fresh revelation of My Word, and to release My will into the earth. I have called you by name and it is My will to see you prosper in your role as a king and priest—as My most beloved Bride who stands by My side. Resist the urge to allow fear, shame, or guilt to cause you to hold back from walking in your calling and speaking on My behalf. These things belong to the old man that was crucified, and I have raised you to newness of life. If you remain silent, then My unique message and fresh revelation through you will remain unheard. Therefore, speak the words you hear from My heart, and do not be afraid. Let My voice roar through you.

Matthew 16:19 (NKJV) And I will give you the keys of the kingdom of heaven, and whatever you bind on earth will be bound in heaven, and whatever you loose on earth will be loosed in heaven.

I AM Life

John 1:4-5 (VOICE) His breath filled all things with a living, breathing light— A light that thrives in the depths of darkness, blazes through murky bottoms. It cannot and will not be quenched.

Beloved, in Me you have eternal life—now and always. You do not have to wait another moment to grab hold of what I have for you. For the work of redemption was completed on the Cross, and the way to Life was fully restored. If your life is in ruins, I will rebuild it. If your health is failing, I will restore it. If your mind is in disarray, I will make it whole with My peace. And if your heart is parched from unmet needs, I will pour out My love until you are saturated and satiated. You do not need to do anything but receive what I have already purchased for you.

Unforgiveness hinders the flow of My life-giving power. Therefore, forgive yourself for past mistakes and for the errors you may make daily. Forgive those who have torn you down and stolen life from you. I AM your Kinsman Redeemer, and, by My shed blood, all is forgiven. The ruins of your life now belong to Me. It is My job to rebuild and restore you. Run to Me, and let Me cloth you with My Life and My Light.

I made you so that you could thrive and flourish in My presence. In My great zeal, I will carry out My promises and purposes for your life. My angels stand at the ready to usher in My healing touch. Are you open to receiving what I have for you, precious? Will you receive all My blessings? Open your hands and open your heart to My life-giving flow. I will restore and revive you with My love.

Amos 9:11 (VOICE) After that happens, on the day I choose, I will rebuild
the dilapidating house of David from its ruins,
Mend the holes in it, rebuild its wreckage,
and restore it just the way it used to be.

I AM For You

Joshua 1:7 (NKJV) “Only be strong and very courageous, that you may observe to do according to all the law which Moses My servant commanded you; do not turn from it to the right hand or to the left, that you may prosper wherever you go.

Beloved, I am for you. As you take small, faith-filled steps into your promised land, remember you are not walking alone. You and I are a team, bonded as one through your wilderness sojourns. I have already determined to work every situation in your favor. I go before you to pave your path to victory. I take down each of your giants when you are willing to face them. And when you take new territory in your inheritance, I join you in celebration. Nothing makes Me happier than to see you obtain My promised blessings!

Therefore, resist the voices of fear and doubt which seek to obscure your vision. Carefully weigh and test each thought that arises in your heart to ensure that it comes from Me. I will never use fear and intimidation to lead you or move you away from danger. I always shepherd you with gentleness and with peace. I vigilantly keep watch over you and am well equipped to protect you.

Let no earthly obstacle hold you back from obtaining all that I have for you. With each new step that you take, rest in the power of the Cross. For it is on the Cross that I made an eternal declaration that I am on your side. Walk in bold confidence of My love for you for it covers you completely and is what assures your victory.

Revelation 12:11 (NLT) And they have defeated him by the blood of the Lamb and by their testimony. And they did not love their lives so much that they were afraid to die.

Draw Upon Your Inheritance

James 1:17 (TPT) Every gift God freely gives us is good and perfect, streaming down from the Father of lights, who shines from the heavens with no hidden shadow or darkness and is never subject to change.

My children, there is a day that comes when I call each of you to put away the ways of childhood and to step into full maturity and your inheritance as sons of God. As My sons, I have provided the finest robes for you—My very own robes. Light is My garment and so, you too will be arrayed in the light of My glory, My very nature. Clothed as My royal heirs, walk the land as My Firstborn Son walked. Shine as the light of the world, and utterly drive out the darkness that is before you.

Every earthly father is called to pour all that he is and all that he knows into his children so that they will be equipped to build upon his legacy. Although I exist without limits, as your Heavenly Father I do no less for My children. I pour out My Spirit—as much of Myself as you are willing to contain—that you may be fully equipped to be about My business in the earth. I withhold no good gift from My children, therefore, I offer you the very best of who I Am. Simply, ask, beloved, ask.

Each day that you arise, just as you would clothe yourself in earthly garments, be intentional and seek revelation for how I have clothed you by My Spirit. Ask Me to equip you for the days ahead. As you encounter obstacles, ask Me for exactly what you need. By constantly asking, you will draw upon the multi-faceted anointing of the Holy Spirit which abides in you. The more frequently you ask with a heart to receive, the stronger and more natural the anointing will flow through you. Allow Me to refine and purify your faith so that the flow will be unhindered and untainted. As you draw upon My Spirit, you will walk as children of the day, able to see by the Light of My Spirit and fully able to navigate any situation that comes your way. Joyfully draw upon your inheritance, My children, and let the fullness of Christ be revealed in you.

Romans 8:19 (VOICE) For all of creation is waiting, yearning for the time when the children of God will be revealed.

Look for Me

Ecclesiastes 3:11 (NKJV) He has made everything beautiful in its time. Also He has put eternity in their hearts, except that no one can find out the work that God does from beginning to end.

Look for Me, beloved. Look for Me to fulfill My Word in great ways and in small. Seek Me continually that I might shine revelation upon My Word, and illuminate events both past and present to bring them into perspective. Yet even as you seek Me, do so with a humble heart understanding that both the plan for your life and the plan for the whole of creation is far beyond what you are capable of fathoming. I Am the Infinite and Eternal Creator, able to fulfill My Word again and again and at new dimensions. I do all things well, and I do them in truth and in harmony.

As I release glimpses of My thoughts and designs to My children, they rightfully evoke reverential awe. Walk in that awe, beloved, for the fear of the LORD is the beginning of wisdom. Resist the urge to become discouraged when the fulfillment of My Word and My promises do not seem to fit your understanding. Instead, dwell in childlike trust and wonder, allowing Me to expand the limitations of your mind and your perception. Know that I delight to draw you close in order to give you pieces of My plan. With revelation I bring instruction that you may walk fully in your role in this grand story that I have penned. When you look for Me at work in the midst of My design, know with certainty that you will find Me.

Proverbs 3:5-6 (NKJV) Trust in the Lord with all your heart,
And lean not on your own understanding;
In all your ways acknowledge Him,
And He shall direct your paths.

Resting Place

Hebrews 4:1 (TPT) Now God has offered to us the same promise of entering into his realm of resting in confident faith. So we must be extremely careful to ensure that we all embrace the fullness of that promise and not fail to experience it.

Beloved, let Me be your resting place. No longer need you be weary and heavy laden, working for that which has already been purchased for you. Instead, come to Me and learn how to be at home in My Spirit. For I have created you that you might abide in Me and I in you. Just as an earthly husband and wife find a mutual sense of belonging and security with one another, so you too can find an even deeper level of belonging and security in your union with Me.

Resist the urge to try to earn your way into My Presence for your place in Me has already been assured. Cease from striving, and instead, learn how to just be in Me. While works through the law once had its place and served a purpose in the plan of redemption, remember that righteousness by My Spirit has now come to bring about perfection. Therefore, partner with Me by simply letting go. Allow My Spirit to strengthen, empower, and undergird you. Let My wisdom, counsel, knowledge, and understanding be as your own. No longer need you rely on your own resources anymore; I Am your life and I desire you to have that life in full abundance.

Just as the dove was sent from the ark to find a resting place, know that the dove of My Spirit will alight and remain upon you when you are in a place of rest in your soul. Trust Me and trust the anointing that abides within you. Know that you are no longer alone and wandering in this world. The light of My Presence is always with you and indeed, it is here to bring you into your rest.

Exodus 33:14 (NKJV) And He said, “My Presence will go [with you], and I will give you rest.”

I Never Forget

Isaiah 49:15 (NKJV) “Can a woman forget her nursing child, And not have compassion on the son of her womb? Surely they may forget, Yet I will not forget you.

I have not forgotten what I have spoken over you, beloved. When I make a promise, I keep it. When I make a plan for your life, I am faithful to see it through to completion. My words are Spirit and they are life, and they never return to Me void. Therefore, trust in Me to fulfill the promises I have spoken. Resist the urge to doubt or think that I have lost sight of the plan for your life.

As the created, you go through many changes, yet I, your Creator, change not. It is impossible for Me to get distracted or thrown off course. I am never surprised by what happens in your life. In fact, everything that happens is within My sovereignty and meant to drive you straight into My will. Therefore, as you yield to My transformation process, resist the urge to lose sight of My promises and plan for your life. Cast off the discouragement and fear that seek to cloud your vision. Instead, hold hope close to your heart and hold fast to My love for you.

For behold, you stand upon the threshold of a new day and a new beginning. My life within you is ready to emerge. Yes, in transformation your emotions and thoughts will swirl like the chaotic waters at Creation. Even so, I say extend grace to yourself in the process. For I Am YHVH Bore, the Lord your Creator; I am well able to keep you even as I shape you according to My Word. What I have begun in you, I will complete. And I love you far too much to ever leave your side.

Philippians 1:6 (VOICE) I am confident that the Creator, who has begun such a great work among you, will not stop in mid-design but will keep perfecting you until the day Jesus the Anointed, our Liberating King, returns to redeem the world.

Respond to My Call

Luke 10:41-42 (TPT) The Lord answered her, “Martha, my beloved Martha. Why are you upset and troubled, pulled away by all these many distractions? Are they really that important? Mary has discovered the one thing most important by choosing to sit at my feet. She is undistracted, and I won’t take this privilege from her.”

My Bride, do not be troubled by the cares of this world. And resist the urge to fret over the actions (or inaction) of your brethren. For I am calling all to arise, trim wicks, and burn brightly with My love. If you expend your energy immersed in worry and fear, your time will be spent striving and accomplishing little. And if you are primarily concerned with judging the behavior of others, you risk falling asleep and becoming lax in your own spiritual growth. I desire that you would simply rest in Me and flourish. Abide in Me, and bear the fruit of My Spirit for all to see.

You will accomplish more for My Kingdom when your focus is to rest at My feet and eat from My hand. Allow Me to impart all that you need, and empower you for every good work. As you yield to the work of My Spirit in your heart, you enable Me to flow through you in greater degrees. Let your singular focus be about how you can create more room for My presence in your heart; as a result, you will automatically make room for My Kingdom upon the earth. Less of you, more of Me, beloved. And as you open the door to more of Me in your life, the bright light of My love will impact the very people who you are interceding for.

Remember, it is My voice that awakens love in the hearts of My people. It is I who atones and brings righteousness into the earth. I shout from heaven with the voice of a trumpet, calling all to cast off the old man and awaken to the new. Be diligent in casting off the weight of the old man, which seeks to obscure your perception of who you are in Me. Be transformed by My voice, and renewed by My love. Open your heart to Me, and watch as My words tumble forth from your lips. Awaken, arise, and respond to My call.

Ephesians 4:22-24 (TPT) And he has taught you to let go of the lifestyle of the ancient man, the old self – life, which was corrupted by sinful and deceitful desires that spring from delusions. Now it’s time to be made new by every revelation that’s been given to you. And to be transformed as you embrace the glorious Christ-within as your new life and live in union with him! For God has re-created you all over again in his perfect righteousness, and you now belong to him in the realm of true holiness.
