It is My Spring: Seek Me, Listen to Me & Follow Where I Lead

Lord, You are! You are the Son - the perfect, brilliant Light which shines in the darkness. You use us to be Your reflection as the moon reflects the sun. Rise in us, oh Lord. Your purposes are glorious and our trust is in You all day long.

PROPHETIC WORD

Sometimes the Holy Spirit “downloads” a word.  Either it will resonate with you or it will not.  No one prophetic word is for each person. But there are some for whom God intended this as an encouragement.  I am human and imperfect.  Pray before you read and as you read. And this is my prayer for you: “LORD, please lead each reader perfectly and cause them to receive and remember, only that which is from You for them.  In Jesus’ name, Amen.” ~ Elizabeth

Look around you.  Spring is coming.  It is almost here.  It is a new season.  I have done it.  I have done it again. This is by My hand, so that no person may boast.

This will be a season like no other. That which I have said I will do, I will do.  But I am calling you deeper. I am calling you higher:  deeper in Me – into My heart, into My purposes, into My rest; and higher up to where I am, where you finally will have more of My overview.

It is time to stop groveling in the dirt.  Look up and see that I have made you a little lower than the angels and when you bow to Me and call Me, Lord, I scoop you up and call You child – My beloved adopted one – and My beloved bride to whom I have always been faithful even when you were not faithful to Me.

Many of you have been looking for the wrong thing.  I know you love Me, but you have not understood.  You have been looking at your life from a lesser human perspective instead of Mine.

You have been looking for money and worldly wealth as the answer to many of the problems you see before you, but money is not the answer.   I AM.    I am the Provider of all you have and will have. I am the enabler.  I alone know what you need, how much and when to accomplish My purposes and faithfully I provide it.

What is it to you if I desire to move you?  Will you not trust Me as I close one door and open another?

At the same time you still must learn that everything you have is not yours, but Mine. Stop deciding on your own how to spend your time, and how to allocate the resources.  I have provided these things to work through you, what I want accomplished!  Yes, you will be blessed by the process, but it is not just about you.

Do you remember why I saved you….why I gave Myself for you before you even knew Me?  It is because of My great, everlasting, infinite and unfathomable love for you.  I love each and every one just as I love you and I will not stop, will not stop, will not stop until every one of them has had the opportunity over and over to choose Me (or not).  My heart is breaking until they turn and find their true destiny in me!  I am their Father!

When you chose Me as your Lord I thought that you would seek My heart so that together we could love them.  You have been distracted by too many things.  You have worried and fretted, allowing your mind to be consumed by that which I already have promised to provide.

Do you believe in Me? Then why don’t you believe in what I have promised?

You do not have to worry about your finances.  I will provide.  It will be enough and in time for what I desire to work through you, where I want you.

You do not have to worry about your healing.  I will heal.  I will heal as it is in My perfect will to use you for My purposes, to shine My light of truth about the eternal nature of life as My ambassador until I bring you home into My intimate heavenly presence for eternity.

Pray. Pray. Pray. Lift it all up to Me.  Partner with Me for My power to be released that My purposes would be accomplished on the earth: that multitudes would find Me and find their true home – their forever home with Me, through Me and in Me.

You are looking for this world to be the perfect place.  It will never be that.  It is your valley of decision. Am I Lord or am I not Lord?

I have treasures for you, but you have not recognized them.  The treasures which I offer you are greater than anything you have ever sought before.  Nothing compares to Me –nothing. You have sought that which has value for an instant, which can provide material things which in the end have no value at all.  I am offering you all that I am, My wisdom – the secrets of My heart.  I offer you these treasures in response for seeking Me.

Dig for Me as you would for gold, rubies and pearls! Search until you find more, more and more of Me.  I am not hiding.  I merely need to be sought and I will open My treasuries of true riches to you!

In exchange for focusing on seeking Me, you do not have to strive.  I even have removed the need to worry.  All you have to do is seek more of Me – more understanding and to hear My voice.  All you have to do is become as a child and take My hand, following as best you can where I lead.  I will take care of everything else.

Yes, there will be work, for I created you for work!  But you are called to rest in Me throughout.   You are called to be at rest in Me, trusting Me as I lead.

This is My gift to you and you do not take it!  Consider the young child asleep in his or her bed. Consider how because of their innocent, blatant, subconscious, all-encompassing trust in their parents, they rest in complete and utter peace. This is My gift to you for every day regardless of your age and you reject it because you worry about what you want.  Do you think what you want is greater than what I will give you? Do you not know that I love you? Do you not know that what I provide will be better than what you could want?

No, you will not always get your way and there will be those you love who suffer. There will be those you love who die.  But you have forgotten why Jesus came!  Death is not the end, but the entry into the fullness of everything I promised.  Yes, you will grieve, for I created you to love and I created you to miss those you love and it will hurt.  I know this hurt.  I gave My Son…  Yet, do not forget My victory over death and the great, great promise of what lies ahead.

Regarding suffering, remember that though suffering will remain a part of this physical existence until I bring each of you home, I can and do use this suffering for great, great good if you will let Me.  I AM JESUS.  I KNOW SUFFERING.  Through suffering wrought by the enemy, the Father and I redeemed the world.  As a result of My suffering and death, the gates of heaven opened for you, I remain on the throne and the Holy Spirit – My Great and Awesome Spirit – was released for you to guide, direct and counsel you.  What the enemy means for evil I use for good for I am Conqueror and Victor always.  I am Almighty and Supreme and all the enemy’s plans are thwarted and turned for My glory.

Choose to rest in Me in this new spring. Choose to pursue Me and My plans for you by listening before you act (and only doing as I lead you to do – nothing else).  Worship and be in My presence at all times where I can address you more clearly as I inhabit your praise and am enthroned by your right placement of Me in your life through worship.

Let Me lead!  I know what I am doing!  Stop worrying about things which I have promised to do and trust Me.  Receive the freedom, peace and joy.  Become My child.  Listen to My Spirit. Dare to walk in the way of eternity – the way of My kingdom – instead of groveling on the ground in despair.

Hope, hope, hope in Me!  I do not disappoint. What I have said I will do I will do.  I link the here of now with the continuum of eternity and My purposes are never thwarted, no matter what it looks like.  Yes, there are many, many tares planted in My beautiful fields of wheat, but I care not.  I will let them grow with the wheat for if they so choose I can transform them to wheat as soon as they turn to Me, repent and ask. But they must choose it and I give them time, for I love them and want none to be lost. May My fields be filled with wheat before the harvest!

Tend to yourself in Me and for Me at all times, ready to love and forgive others by My power for there will be offense and you must work at getting along. Listen to My Spirit. Do what I say. I weave together the lives of all for My victory.  You are not responsible for all of them and their choices.  You are responsible to Me for your response – to do your part as I lead, not as you decide.  Remember to do all things in love – not love as humanity describes it, but sacrificial love as I show you to do.  You cannot love this way without My power and direction.  You cannot.  You cannot.  You cannot.  For it is beyond your power.  But it is Who I AM.

Love and do not judge.  Judgment is Mine!  I know when and how.  I alone know the hearts and what I desire to accomplish.  As much as it depends on you be at peace with one another.  Love your enemies and do good for those who hate you – even those who persecute you – even those who were of your camp, but where now there is a season of misunderstanding, confusion and discontent.  Agony of agonies!  I know this is not easy.  You will not always see the “success” for which you had hoped.  But I am there.  Do it for Me.  Do it for My result.  I am not done.  BOW. LISTEN. OBEY.

Do not make up your own mind. Always seek Mine!  You are not safe in Your own decisions.  I am your refuge when you are in Me and I am in you – when you have chosen to follow and go My way and not your own.  Remain in Me at all costs at all times!

This new spring is to be your blessing and My victory for this generation. I am calling them all near.  I will reveal Myself to those who do not yet know Me.  I desire to use you for this purpose.  It will bring you greater joy than you have ever known, for you were created and birthed into this world for such a time as this.  I have chosen you and put you in place for just such a time.

But you must give up your worry and seeking of the world’s answers to the problems and obstacles you see.  You must make Me your hope for I am your trust.  It will take self-control and repeated effort, but I will take you through it all and build your spiritual muscle so you can stand stronger in My strength and in My will at all times.  And your joy will be complete.

Rest in Me.  Listen to Me. Do as I say. Soak in the Word. Let it be your food – the only True Food, which nourishes you and sustains you.  Revel in the intimacy which results from authentic worship when you abandon yourself to Me – choosing to adore instead of worry, fret or seek your own wisdom.

I am raising up a planting to produce a harvest.   My harvest is to grow My kingdom for My glory.

Spring is coming.  It is here.  I am bringing the shoots of life forth in the darkness.  Soon what I am doing will become visible and seen.  You are a part of this, if you will rest in Me, listen and look up and let Me show you your life and purpose from My perspective and if you will trust that I am truth, cannot lie and will fulfill all My promises.

Seek Me and My kingdom and everything else you need will be provided for you in exactly the right measure.  Seek My way!  I AM!

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
