Prophetic Word ~ One Step At A Time

You lead us; we follow; we delight in Your way; You never let us go and fulfill every promise.You lead us; we follow; we delight in Your way; You never let us go and fulfill every promise.

My child, I am well pleased with You.  Keep going – one step at a time.  I am Your Father.  I will not let you go the wrong way so long as you are seeking Me with all your heart.  I am Your Shepherd.  I lead you in the way you should go and keep you from harm.  I am Your Bridegroom.  I love you beyond what you will ever grasp.  My love is infinite and never-ending.

So keep going one step after another though you cannot see the destination.  I will not fail.  My word will not return void and everything I have said I will do, I will do.

Come to me now in your weariness.  You want so much to please me that you have picked up the load again, which was never meant for you to carry.

All burdens are mine – not yours.  Maintain the attitude of a trusting child, busy about his or her current task and not worried about what comes next.  Lay all burdens at My feet so you can dance freely the way I intended.

My love for you knows no bounds and I have loved you and given my life for you before you ever knew Me.

Rest in Me.  Delight in Me. Do the work I have set before you in this moment with great joy.  Keep your eyes on Me and your day.  I will take you where I have promised.  It will be in My timing.  You do not need to focus there.  Just do your day.

Today plus tomorrow plus the day after that and one by one you will complete the steps which only I know which will take you where I have shown you.

But do not miss the joy of today.  Do not miss the blessing of today’s service in My name.  Enjoy the now.  Though it is not the fullness of what is to come, it is the fullness of the present moment and it is good.

Now even now I desire to use you and am using you every time you bow, listen, submit and obey.  For many who do not know it, today is all they have.  My fields are ripe for harvest.  Do today.  Rejoice. Do tomorrow.  Rejoice. Whether what you are doing seems large or small to you, it is all the same size to Me.  And after a time has passed  you will look and see the distance I have brought you.

But never forget the path you see before you is about more than service and more service to Me and those I love.  It is the path to greater closeness and intimacy with Me. And so you take a step today and another tomorrow, holding my hand, following where I lead and I will love others through you that they might know Me and with each step you will find your way deeper into My heart where you are invited to abide until we are together in the life to come for all eternity.

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
