Are you firmly planted? Do you have a solid foundation? For there are many who do not. Their foundation is upon their own ideas, doctrines and the arm of the flesh. I came that you would be set in Me, restored unto Me, to be firmly planted like a tree by the living waters, to be a tree of righteousness. I desire your roots to run deep, deep into the soil of who I am, to draw the nutrients you need from Me, My spirit, and My word. For the winds will blow, storms will come, yet those planted with a firm foundation will stand. For they are rooted and grounded in Me. So become that tree. Set your affections on Me. Become rooted and grounded today. For today is a new day, a fresh day, today is the day of salvation sayeth the Mighty Lord of heaven and earth.
Who has set the limits? Has it been you, religion, doctrine or the world? Am I set by limits? NO! I am an infinite God, Creator of heaven and earth. Too many have done all they can to limit Me, to put Me into a box. Have I not said in My word, NOTHING is impossible to them that believe? Stop listening to those around you. Do not listen to circumstances and situations. For I will make water flow from a rock. I will make the waters go hither and tither. I will do that which seems impossible. For in those times I will show myself true and strong. Remember to trust in and rely on Me. For I am faithful to perform all I said I would. For I am the God of all creation, the God who loves you. So stand firm in Me and let Me do that which seems impossible to and for you sayeth the Lord God Jehovah, the Lord of hosts.
Lift up your voice and praise. Be silent no more, let your cries be heard. For I understand the cries of your heart. I understand the worship of a pure spirit. As you worship Me, I move on your behalf. As you worship, My spirit is poured out. Run to worship Me, not away. For I desire those who would worship Me in spirit and in truth, with a tender, pure heart says the mighty Lord of hosts.
For I hold the oceans in the palm of My hand. Is it too big for Me to move a mountain? For too many do not believe Me, nor My word. I say, I can only move with faith that is alive and active. I cannot and will not move with faith that is dead and lifeless. For I say, too many confess with their mouth, yet do not believe with their heart. Many walk in hope. I say plant the seed of faith, water it with belief in Me, belief that I am and I will accomplish all I said I’ll do. For I watch over My word to perform it. It will NOT return void. So rest in Me, in My word and watch all the seed you have sown come to fruition. For as long as the earth remains, there is seedtime and harvest. Rely on Me and watch all be accomplished sayeth the mighty Lord of heaven and earth.
Will you believe the report of man? Will you believe the lie of the enemy? Will you believe the flesh and the reports of this world? I say believe Me! For My word is true. My word NEVER fails. For many have come to close their eyes to the truth of My word. They would rather believe what they can see, touch, feel, smell and taste. I say you are to walk by the spirit. You are to walk by faith. Be not deceived. Let My truth permeate your very being. For truth dispels a lie. Believe Me, believe My word. Let Me prove My word true and show myself strong on your behalf sayeth the Lord.
The word “Christian” means follower of Christ. Our lives are to be modeled and fashioned after Christ. Christ is our example and our Lord. Now that Jesus is not on the earth we now take His place “;As He is so are we on this earth” , “As the Father has sent Me so I send you.” Now that the Holy Spirit has come, anyone can live and walk as Jesus did. Jesus was fully man, this shows us that we can do everything that Jesus did and live the way that He did. Taking Jesus as our example we can see that it is possible to walk without sin “He was tempted in every way and sinned not.” and the way we deal with the devil speaking lies is by speaking the truth.(Matthew 4:4,7,10). Jesus represented God on this earth when He was here in the flesh. Now it is our job to represent the Father rightly on this earth. Jesus was God in a man doing the will of the Father and now if we have been filled with the Holy Spirit we are manifesting God in us when we choose to come in alignment with the will of the Father. If we follow after Jesus and seek to be like Him, we will find that “seek and ye shall find, knock and the door will be opened unto you, ask and ye shall receive.” Christianity without Christ likeness is like a car without wheels…It’s going nowhere. Might have gas and the engine might run, it might make noise, but the main purpose of the car is lacking. In the same manner, the purpose of a Christian is to bring God glory and you cannot bring God glory without the image of God manifesting in your life. But, without the power of the Holy Spirit this will never be. You need Him in you to produce Godly fruit for lost souls to pick.(Galatians 5:22-23) (Romans 8:19) So choose today, allow God to fill you and change you into His image for His glory.
Matthew 4:4 But he answered and said, It is written, Man shall not live by bread alone, but by every word that proceedeth out of the mouth of God.
Matthew 4:7 Jesus said unto him, It is written again, Thou shalt not tempt the Lord thy God.
Matthew 4:10 Then saith Jesus unto him, Get thee hence, Satan: for it is written, Thou shalt worship the Lord thy God, and him only shalt thou serve.
Galatians 5:22-23 22 But the fruit of the Spirit is love, joy, peace, longsuffering, gentleness, goodness, faith, 23 Meekness, temperance: against such there is no law.
Romans 8:19 For the earnest expectation of the creature waiteth for the manifestation of the sons of God.
What did you expect when you came thirsty to the well of living water? Did you expect to leave satisfied or still thirsty? What did you expect when you came to eat the Manna from heaven? Did you expect to be full or still hungry? For I tell you this. You MUST believe that I am and I am a rewarder of those who diligently seek Me. For I will satisfy those who thirst after Me. I will fill all who hunger after Me. I say, come to Me in expectation. For you will receive exactly what you expect. Many expect nothing, so that is what they get. Their faith and expectation is based on feeling, seeing, tasting, touching and hearing. I say you are to be moved by the Spirit, My Spirit. Expect Me to fill you, to lead you and to guide you. For those who come to Me in faith and expectation, I will do all that and more. Pressed down, shaken together and running over sayeth the Lord
Let Me satisfy the longing in your soul. Let Me satisfy that need for intimacy. Let Me fulfill and complete you. For you were designed and created by Me, for Me. You see, you are fearfully and wonderfully made. You are made in My image. There is nothing in the flesh that can or ever will satisfy you. For you were created to be with me and Me with you. I love you and desire to be your all in all. In Me is fullness of joy. In Me is everything you could ever want, need or hope for. Come unto Me. Let Me be your everything and satisfy that which only I can sayeth the Lord.
I say, trust in Me with all your might. Trust in My Holy name. For I have seen the hearts of Man. I have seen the hearts of My people. Too many trust in false gods. They have placed their trust in the works of man. They have placed their trust in the works of the flesh. For remember My word says, trust in the Lord with all your heart and lean not on your own understanding, in every and all ways submit to Him and He will make your paths straight. I say to you, trust in Me, rely on Me. Watch Me accomplish all I said I would do. So turn to Me. Let go of the way that seems right to man. For I will take you and make you into all you were destined to be, My beloved child, sayeth the Lord God Almighty.
What is it? What will you see? Will you see the here? Will you see the now? Will you see the storms, the winds and the waves? I say, look to Me. I say, look at Me. I ask you, will you see the future I hold? Will you see that which is not as if it was? Stop looking at that which is today and gone tomorrow? Lift up your head. Yes, lift up your eyes. Look to the hope and future I have for you. See with the eyes of faith. See with the eyes of My love. See with the eyes of My spirit and My word. I say this, unless you see it, you cannot walk to or in it. So come, look and see. See all I have done to you. See all I have done in and through you. See all I am able and willing to take you into. For My love for you is great sayeth the Lord.
Will you listen to My Spirit when He speaks or will you just walk away? Many of My people hear My voice, the voice of truth, yet they decide to ignore what they hear. Some cannot hear, for they have stopped up their ears. Too many are focused upon themselves, what they want and desire. I say focus on Me. Focus on what I desire. For I have said, seek ye first My kingdom and My righteousness and ALL these things shall be added unto you. For unless you listen, you cannot go. How can I direct you paths unless you hear Me and follow My voice? So I say, humble yourself, submit to Me. Seek Me out and hear what My spirit is saying to you sayeth the Lord of hosts.
For where have you put your affections? Have you placed them upon Me? For I tell you, too many have set their affections on themselves, on their own desires, wants and needs. I have said, trust in Me with ALL your HEART, with all your mind and with all your understanding. I will direct your paths. Do not lean on your own understanding. Too many have become reliant upon their own understanding. They have set their affections upon the knowledge they have acquired, the people they know or the status they receive. I say to you, put down those idols. For that is what they have become. Cut them down, cast them away, return to Me. Set your affections on things above, on Me. For My heart is for you. For I look for those who desire and long for Me and seek Me out, who seek Me and Me alone sayeth the Lord of hosts.
