Sometimes the Holy Spirit “downloads” a word. As always, it either will resonate with you or it will not. No one prophetic word is for each person. But there are some for whom God had intended this. 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
Slow down! Do not run through life. Walk in balance. I did not run. I walked. No matter how urgent what you are facing looks, the time I provide will be sufficient for it. I say it again: slow down and walk in balance.
Part of your worship is to trust Me for My timing, and not to force your own. Worship is more than a song. It is not an arbitrary action, but a heart-attitude, which like a fountain springs forth from deep waters under the ground where no one can see. Worship springs forth out of an increasing knowing of Me as revealed by the Holy Spirit flowing down from My throne and infiltrating the quiet depths of your soul. My Spirit knows Me and teaches you about Me. He is there ready and waiting to give you more until you are filled to overflowing (and overflowing) with all that I AM to everyone around you. It is your blessing; it is your gift from Me; it is your refreshment, your revival and your new life…It is also My purpose.
My Son only did as He saw Me doing. My Son did not have Hiis own plan which He chose to execute on earth. He executed Mine. Who do you think you are to decide your own life? Are you are follower of Jesus or are you not? That your decision. No other.
Do not say I cannot be heard. I can. It is my promise and I do not lie. But I must be sought. What are you seeking each day? Are you seeking a job promotion as your answer? A spouse? A relationship with a friend? More leisure or a bigger home, or celebrity? Are you seeking to be known and recognized and honored by people? Are you seeking to receive great wealth. What is it that you yearn for?
These are not bad, but they are not your answer. I AM. They are less than what I AM. They are immeasurably less than what I offer. Seek Me and I will carry you so you soar like an eagle which will be your blessing, but is for My glory. Seek Me and I will show you the view of life from My perspective for My ways are not yours. Mine are supremely higher and better.
I have such profound, eternal purpose for you each day and not just where you think you yearn to be, but also where you currently are. But you must let Me direct you. I long to flow through you like a river. I long to use you more as My vessel than ever before – not just to choose to love others by your power, but to allow My love to pour through you to them in the way I desire, which is not just to refresh them for a moment, but to usher them into the depths of eternal intimacy with Me. I long to breathe My life into them – to heal their hearts and place them into My purpose.
How I long for more of them to learn to be in Me as I am in the Father and the Father is in Me, for I am the Dwelling Place. I am the Refuge. I am the Safe Tower. In Me all things live and move and have their being.
Be silent and stop moving so hurriedly for a moment. Seek Me. Listen. All creation is declaring My glory by how it is. The tree does not rush to grow nor the flower to bloom. They are all in My perfect timing. They move in harmony with Me so that the sound resounds to My glory in the deepest, most intricate, melodic way. All creation beyond humanity rests in Me and has My peace because all creation besides you must. They have no choice to attempt to reject My way or pretend that I am not in control. I AM.
Know that I am God and there is no other. Seek Me and I will be found.
I cannot be found in the hectic. You must choose to move in a different way. This does not mean you are to stop everything at all times for I also created You for work and the need to do work through which I provide for you. But stop rushing. Trust. Worship. Drink in My Spirit. Abide. It is your spiritual act of authentic worship to put Me first. It is where I am and where I belong. And I will be found by you.
