“But without faith it is impossible to please Him, for he who comes to God must believe that He is, and that He is a rewarder of those who diligently seek Him.” Hebrews 11:6
It is evident to those with spiritual eyes that the Lord is moving within the United States. He is shaking, pruning, and refining His church. He wants to see who is faithful and who is not, this is not about an election, this is not about a man. This is about seeing the Word Of The Lord come to pass as true. It is an opportunity to align ourselves with what the Lord wants done and to be the vessels He uses.
I write to you again today to encourage you to seek the Lord like never before. To pour yourself out before Him, to be willing to be completely emptied, to lay down all your desires, secrets and faults before Him. Be willing that no matter how He chooses to use them, we have complete confidence that they will be used for the glory of the Father. I know that some reading this have things come to mind that they want to keep in the dark, but when we have things that we are not willing to let the Light touch than we walk in darkness. Nothing is unredeemable for the Lord. Allow Him everything, repent for not having Him be your first love.
The Father is desiring all to come to Him, to love Him, and to trust Him. We must be willing to die to everything and allow the Lord to fill us with HIS SPIRIT, we must be willing to do what He desires even when our flesh wars against it! Our feelings, emotions, desires must come under the authority of the Lord, it is a commitment to persistence. We will not allow ourselves to be ruled by anything other than Christ. There will be times that our mind tells us that if God loved than, this or that wouldn’t have happened. We may read stories in the Bible that rub us raw and our minds want to call into question the sovereignty of God- The validity of the Bible. Make the decision today to believe that His ways are higher than our ways, that He has full knowledge, for He alone knows the beginning from the end.
“So he answered, ‘Do not fear, for those who are with us are more than those who are with them.’ And Elisha prayed, and said, ‘Lord, I pray, open his eyes that he may see.’ Then the Lord opened the eyes of the young man, and he saw. And behold, the mountain was full of horses and chariots of fire all around Elisha.” 2 Kings 6:16&17
We must be praying that the Lord open our eyes, we must have faith that He longs to do this for us. We must understand where we are to be looking from. We are not to be looking from a worldly or fleshly perspective. For that is skewed. We are to be so heavily relied upon the Lord and His statues that our vision comes from Heaven. We will never be able to walk in the fullness that the Lord desires for our lives until we are willing to lay down everything. Until all that we have becomes His and for His Kingdom.
Seek the Lord. Empty yourself out before Him. Let nothing that you fear be exposed keep your from the fullness that is in Christ Jesus. There is power and authority, in Heaven and Earth and under the earth, and all this authority lies within Jesus. There is power within His name and all that He does is JUST. Be apart of what is happening in the Earth right now, don’t be blinded.
Heavenly Father, I ask that you give us the desire, courage and strength to come before You and be emptied of ourselves. That we will chose to be imitators of God as His children. That we walk in love just as Christ has loved us and was willing to offer Himself a sacrifice to the Father, which the Father delighted in as a sweet aroma. Father just as the enemy rejoiced at the death of Christ not understanding Your ways and ultimate plan, Father again prove the enemy wrong. Create in us a willing people that our desire is nothing other than YOU. Make us bold Lord for Your cause and Your ways. Strengthen us to endure. Amen.
