Your destiny is not dependent on your time, but on God’s time and season.
Many people have been hidden and discouraged. Many have felt spiritually exhausted and that all hope has died.
The process of refinement has made many vessels like seemingly empty shells. We become empty so we can be filled with the Holy Spirit.
Deep revelation comes from deep experiences with our LORD.
We can try to teach by theory and in books, but real revelation and change in God can only come through a viable living example and experience.
Who are you trying to please? Are you a man pleaser or a God pleaser?
What you do in that prayer closet with the Master, is where it all begins?
We must learn to know the LORD through our worship, prayers and through obedience to His Word.
For those of you who are so desiring the LORD with your whole heart; I can tell you this by my own experiences.
If you begin to take God seriously and take Him to heart and start seeking Him desperately you will find Him when you seek Him with your whole heart beloved.
The LORD loves it when we choose to find Him with our whole heart.
Do you see why He delights in such a one? He has given us free will and choice and He cannot or will not make anyone choose Him.
He has given us grace and mercy but He will not make us choose Him. It is all about our free choice and our free will.
Beloved, once we understand the revelation of our free choice and will, it will revolutionize our lives!
We come into His alignment in His Word and we come to obedience to His Word. Once we finally understand it is not our job to change anyone, then we will stand out of the way and allow the Holy Spirit to do His job.
There are many people who attempt to play Holy Ghost and that is NOT our job! Once we know the fact about our free will and choice, it gives us the liberty to just be who we are and then we leave the results to the LORD.
Jesus cannot make anyone love him nor can we make someone love God. We can preach, teach, pray and testify but the decision comes from within the person who is under that ultimate love conviction.
Once we understand we can stop being anxious and fretful and we can finally turn their loved ones over to the LORD.
It is God’s will that we will show more mercy and grace to others.
Each of His saints have an awesome trust given to each of us. Just think how God has given us choice and freedom.
We are unlike any other in his creation and the LORD is looking for those who will freely pursue Him and desire to know Him intimately. He can’t help but bless you and make himself known to you!
Because you want to choose Him and desperately you seek Him, you will reap great rewards in knowing Him personally.
Even if all forsake you, know that He will never forsake you. He seeks out those who will seek Him with their whole heart.
You will one day be tested to see if you can stand alone with Him when everyone seems to disregard and throw you away.
Know HIM beloved of God, even when you seemingly are standing alone and done all you know to do. Just STAND!
Beloved don’t be discouraged when people don’t understand you and seemingly disregard you. People are quick to judge and change by whatever wind leads them.
People are fickle and many are tossed to and fro with every wind of doctrine by the cunning and crafty people.
The LORD doesn’t share His secrets flippantly,. He rewards those who diligently seek Him.
He seeks a deep relationship and faithful friend who He can share His secrets with.
This life with God isn’t some sort of Circus side show, it is a life of knowing the LORD personally. Fickle man will always go with the flow of man’s opinions and will bolt when things are not as they want them.
“For the perfecting of the saints, for the work of the ministry, for the edifying of the body of Christ:Till we all come in the unity of the faith, and of the knowledge of the Son of God, unto a perfect man, unto the measure of the stature of the fullness of Christ: that we henceforth be no more children, tossed to and fro, and carried about with every wind of doctrine, by the sleight of men, and cunning craftiness, whereby they lie in wait to deceive; but speaking the truth in love, may grow up into him in all things, which is the head, even Christ,” Ephesians 4:12-15 KJV.
Salmon are an amazing creation of God. At certain times of the year come the salmon will go upstream as their DNA and INSTINCT carries them.
To study the salmon is amazing as they do what seems impossible. Within their being they have a type of hidden GPS or Instinct as they go against the natural flow of the river.
Salmon often leap out of the river intent to go up to higher levels of the stream regardless of rocks and falls are.
The salmon press in and come forcefully back to their beginnings to spawn producing more life for many eggs are produced. Once they die so many more begin due to their instinct and determination. They die so others may live.
We are much like the Salmon beloved. We have Godly DNA and Destiny within us.
Instead of going with the flow of the world, we stand out by going against the popular stream and the cares of this life.
Going against the worldly flow of the river keeps us relevant as we all learn in what stage of growth we are in.
Going against the flow of this world gives and qualifies us to abide in deeper relationship with the LORD.
We are not of this world and we must develop great strength to remain true to the upstream current.
We must remain true to the call. Yes we go against the flow and it takes strict determination to go upstream with all sorts of obstacles.
We must continually come back to our first love relationship. Going back to the beginning causes us to learn we live to die.
We live in Christ and we die to the things of this world. God’s will through us is that we produce so much fruit and that it will remain.
Our lives and story goes on through others whom our lives has touched. We learn to die daily and know ultimately we will die in the LORD and be caught up to be with Him forever in the LORD.
We witness and preach from what we know, not what we don’t know. It is like giving to God; we give from what we have and not what we don’t have.
We are developed through life’s lessons and from going to deep places and the timing of the LORD is reminding us to be instant in season and out of season.
Even if everything dies, the LORD says, “I AM the resurrection and the life.”
The death and sting, has given us Victory! He who sits above the circle of the earth blow His winds upon you now.
For even now death can’t hold you down! Destiny is what God decreed and His time is at hand. Revive!
You are never too far gone that God cannot see, and you have been set up for His purpose.
Keep your focus on Him and choose through your free will to hunger after Him to find Him as you seek Him with your whole heart.
Your outward conditions will never keep you from my next dimension. Return to your first love beloved and keep Him first.
Receive your new beginning today. Be revived and restored in Jesus Holy Name!
“I know thy works, and thy labour, and thy patience, and how thou canst not bear them which are evil: and thou hast tried them which say they are apostles, and are not, and hast found them liars: and hast borne, and hast patience, and for my name’s sake hast laboured, and hast not fainted. Nevertheless I have somewhat against thee, because thou hast left thy first love,” Revelations 2:2-4 KJV.
In HIS Grace and Mercy,
