Trust Me ~ I Have More For You

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!

 

PRAYER

 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.

I am a God-seeker--a Jesus-worshipper--a Holy Spirit follower. I create songs, devotions, prayers, books and Bible studies to give words with which to get to know God more. For you. Its for one-on-One encounter unto transformed, transcendent living. This is not my vocation. I am not professional. I am a real, ordinary person just looking to do what God put me here to do. (You have a unique purpose too.) So I am called to the work. It is not my income source, but my gift to those who find it blessing. Eagles Nest Foundation sponsors all projects for you. The result: pure, clean spiritual nutrition to feed that deep insatiable spiritual hunger which eventually overtakes each of us and galvanizes you to the life God has for you. This life is purposeful. Exceptional. You--yes, you--are called to something greater and more satisfying in His service. So it is hoped you'll try this spiritually dense nutrition and find it to be a personal blessing. However, the goodness of God-following doesn't stop there. He uses those who seek Him to be His love and care (justice, mercy, advocate, kindness) very tangibly in the lives of those around you. Not by your power but by His. His ideas. God ideas. Not just good ideas. To be part of changing the world, if you will let Him. You learn to just follow where He leads. That if you listen, He will teach you to hear His voice and then when you obey His inner promptings you will become His incredible hands and feet in this hard world. These materials will help! They will help you aim your life towards God in a way you never look back. You will not be the same. He will become the River in your desert spaces and you will become a conduit of this same River of refreshing, replenishing Water of Life to others. Find a prayer. Pick a blog post. Read a book. Be led deeper into the Bible. Select a song which resonates and use it and use it again to go close and ever closer to the God who longs to draw you near. Oh, and don't be tempted to think I'm a crazy over-spiritualized loony...My background is financial planning and counseling. Almost 40 years of it. To choose to believe in God is not to leave practicality and reason behind, but to learn that there is that which goes beyond it and includes it, unto true life fulfillment beyond all your dreams for the one who keeps seeking Him. I am a third generation Californian. I am a person to whom family means everything. The only priority higher is God. The foothills of the Sierra Nevada are my home. It is here the 1849-1856 Gold Rush is still glorified. Easy money? Actually only for the few. Even though I was raised in the Church, it took me ten years of doubting God even existed to realize that without Him, no matter how much of this life's "stuff" is accumulated, I actually have nothing. To come to know that all those who chased after gold are dead and all those who still chase stuff will be dead. That's when I became a God-seeker. Looking for that more. And Eureka! (This is California's state slogan and means I found it.) I found God...or rather, I discovered He was there and had been there waiting for me to look for Him the whole time. May you discover more of Him for you, greater flourishing life and greater flourishing for all in the world as well. God bless you! ~Elizabeth
