Are you? Are you hungry for more? Then step up. Come close. Allow Me to fill your cup. Let Me fill you to overflowing, Pressed down, shaken together, running over. Have you forgotten or do you not realize, as you taste of Me your hunger for me increases. As you feed on intimacy with Me your desire for others will wane and become naught. Come, feast on Me. Spend time with Me. Allow Me to fill you once again. For though it may appear dry, you are still full of Me. Just allow Me to overfill you. Allow Me to restore your hunger. Allow Me to restore your thirst. All you have to do is ask sayeth the Lord of hosts.
Do you seek after that which you yourself can obtain? Do you seek after that which is easily found? For I say, seek after Me. Seek after that which ONLY I can give you. Seek after that which seems impossible by man’s standards. For remember, those that seek Me find Me. Seek after My presence. Seek after My spirit. Seek after that which is eternal and not temporal. For I tell you, the gauges have been set. For you will either seek Me or the flesh, for you cannot serve both. You will either love one and hate the other else you will cling to one and despise the other sayeth the Lord God Jehovah.
Have you made it? Have you made a habitation for Me? Has it been made by hands? For lo, I will make My habitation in that which was not made by hands. For remember, you are a temple of the Holy Spirit. I choose to make My abode in you. So I say, open the door. Allow Me in and I will sup with you. Has your life become a sacrifice of praise? Did you forget? Did you not know? I inhabit the praises of My people. So make your life a living epistle, a sacrifice of praise, a holy pure vessel of honor and a sweet smelling incense to Me. Allow Me in, allow Me to move and I will make you into all I have planned, purposed and designed you to be, My beloved bride, holy and acceptable to Me, for Me and by Me sayeth the Lord.
For My word is sharper than a two edged sword. Those who wield it in faith cut down and use it against the enemy. Yet, there are many who have nothing more than a dull butter knife. For though they speak out My word, it is from rote. It is from sheer memory. They speak with no faith or belief. Many have come to regurgitate that which has been taught them. They have never let My word in. It has never become a part of them. I tell you, allow My word to sink in deep. Allow it to be a part of you. Let My spirit cut away all that is unnecessary in your life. Let My word become a part of you. Speak it in faith. Believe Me, believe My word. For I tell you, those who truly love Me, believe that I AM and I am a rewarder of those who diligently seek Me. For My word will not return void. So speak the word only, in faith and watch all I do on your behalf sayeth the mighty Lord of heaven and earth.
Have you set your sights and targeted your mark? For many of My people just throw out random prayers. They have not decreed a thing so that it may be established unto them in FAITH. My ears become filled with incessant words, constant talking. It is as if they are shooting arrows in the sky, hoping they will hit something. I say to you, pray My word. Pray in the spirit. For when you do not know what to pray, the spirit does. I said ask and it shall be given to you, ask in My name, release your faith. Believe I am. Believe that you receive, for I am willing. I am looking to prove myself strong on behalf of those who love Me and walk in faith. So I say, let the arrow fly. Release it, expecting to accomplish all I have said. For remember, I watch over My word to perform it and it will not return void sayeth the Lord.
The thing that is vitally important in the life of a believer is prayer. This is what sets true believers apart from the rest of the church. Leonard Ravenhill said, “a man is only as good as His prayer life.” The “prayer closet” is where a believer lays down the flesh and pride, builds their relationship with the Father and intercedes for others. This is also where God sculpts and teaches believers. It is wonderful when a believer allows God to father them in the quietness and stillness. That is the place where God’s power is manifest in the greatest way. In prayer and from prayer, whether we feel it or not, God transforms hearts and therefore changes lives. In previous articles when I have said “spend time with Him”, this is what I mean. Prayer is anything from thanking and praising, to intercession. Out of all of it comes a wonderful relationship. You will hear God more clearly (His voice will be louder than the flesh), your discernments will be clearer and God will reveal the truth to you. All of My revelations on holiness came from time spent with God where He taught me the importance of holiness. The truth is so clear when it comes straight from God. A prayer life also feeds righteousness and “righteousness bares its fruit unto holiness.” Holiness comes out of relationship with God and relationship comes out of time spent with Him(prayer). A believer will never be totally pure unless they go directly to God and have a relationship with Him. After all, how do you please someone if you don’t know what they want and how do you know what someone wants if you don’t have a relationship with them? Relationship comes through prayer and a believer will never live in the fullness of God’s will without a prayer life. Most people(Christians) who doubt a lot and are miserable have no prayer life and furthermore have no relationship with God. That is not what God intends for us. God wants relationship and that is only obtained through a prayer life, not from a place of religion but out of a place of love for Him. Prayer is the way believers mature and become great men and women of God who love Him and will do anything for Him. God is so in love with us, but we have to take the steps to get to know Him and that step is prayer through love.
1 Thessalonians 5:17 King James Version (KJV) Pray without ceasing.
Where have you placed your faith? Have you placed it in Me? Have you placed it in My word? Have you placed it in all I am? For many have placed their faith in other things, in other areas. For I have said, I have given EVERY man the measure of faith, yet much of it has been displaced. For I tell you, faith is the gas that drives the vehicle. Allow Me to build up your faith. For know this, the more you use, the more will be filled up inside of you. Just as the cruse of oil multiplied, faith will be poured out and multiplied. Just continue to use your faith. Use it in Me, in My word and in My spirit. For it pleases Me and gives Me great joy to see you walk in My faith sayeth the Lord.
Have I stilled it? Have I stilled the raging storm? Have I not caused the winds and the waves to be still? Then why do you fear? Why do My people walk around as if I am incapable of doing it again? Am I not the same yesterday, today and forever? For I want you to remember and know this, I NEVER change. Stop walking as if the storm will overtake you. Come rest in the back of the boat. For I have said, in famine and destruction, I will laugh. I say to you, come, allow Me to still all that seems to rage against you. Cast all your cares upon Me. It is time to lift up your head and walk upon the water with Me sayeth the Lord
What is that you are working for? Is it eternal? Is it for Me and My glory or for your own selfishness? Many of My people are unaware of what they are accumulating. Many are piling up nothing more than wood, hay and stubble. There are a few, those who love Me, those who do My will, they desire nothing more than to be all I have called for them to be, to do nothing but My will. They are accumulating great riches. Those who seek their own, already have their reward, their crowns are in earthly matters, prestige, honor, title and all that it contains. Those who are My pure bride, they will receive their reward, in full, in front of all. For when the time comes, all will be revealed sayeth the Lord God Jehovah.
Have you? Have you used it? Have you used the weapons I have given you? Have you used the weapon of praise and worship? Do you not know? Did you not realize? For I tell you this, praise and worship is a mighty weapon. For in your praise and worship to Me, you submit yourself to Me and all I am and the enemy must flee. For remember this, I inhabit the praises of My people. For you are to be a sacrifice of praise. So give of yourself. Worship Me, praise Me. Allow Me to manifest Myself in you and to you in a very intimate special way. For I love spending time with you and will prove myself on your behalf. For I love you sayeth the Lord.
