PROPHETIC WORD (followed by a prayer for today)
Trust Me. Press into Me. Seek to abide in Me. I am your Refuge and Dwelling Place – no other. I am your protection and provision – no other. But you must have hearts ready to receive what I desire to give you.
I would not give you that which is not good for you. I love you! But you may not understand.
The choice is yours: TRUST ME or not. I will still love you if you do not trust Me, but your life will miss many of the blessings I desire to bestow on you in My perfect way.
I desire to give you rest. I desire to comfort you. I desire to lead you through the fire in a way that it will not burn you. I desire to enable you to walk on water (on top of the waves through all your storms.)
But never forget, when I enabled Peter to walk on top of the waves of the stormy sea, he was walking towards Me!
Lord God, it is a new day and every day You have work for me to do. Lord God, because I trust in You, I choose to rejoice in the day even though I do not know what it holds and sometimes there will be as much sorrow and struggle as happiness and ease. Lord God, help me to remember that this is earth, not heaven. Send more of Your Spirit to dwell within me, reminding me that my purpose while here on earth is to be Your ambassador, shining Your light into the darkness, so that more may choose to find their way home to You for eternity. Lord God, sometimes I forget that you will allow me to be in areas where I prefer not to be because it is spiritually dark and as spiritually dry for me as the desert! I forget that Your light can only shine in the darkness if You use us as Your lamps there and that Your Living Water flows into the wilderness when we are placed there as Your vessels of Truth and love. Help me not to be impatient with where I am today, Lord. Help me to find my joy in how You love me and how You use me for great things of eternal consequence wherever I am which frequently no one else can see. Help me to listen for Your voice every moment of every day and to have the courage to do that which Your Spirit is whispering to my heart, especially when it doesn’t make sense (but doesn’t contradict Your Word and Your Way). By Your Spirit, help me to discern what is from You and what is from the adversary, attempting to discourage and hold me back from the gifts You have for me. I want to hear Your voice. Teach me to listen and to hear You better every day. I bow to You. I trust You. I choose to rejoice in You especially when life doesn’t make sense because You are my Savior and my Lord.
