Know That I Love You

Lord, there are seasons of winter where all seems dead & yet because of the rain & snow which come with the storms, You bring forth new life in the spring! Lord, use us. We are yours. Produce a harvest from our lives which grows Your Kingdom for Your glory!

PROPHETIC WORD

When the Holy Spirit “downloads” a word, it either will resonate with you or it will not.  No one prophetic word is for every person. But there are some for whom God had intended this.  I am human and imperfect.  Please always 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

I am the Lord.  I am Your God and I have been watching you.  I have seen how difficult it has been.  I have seen the struggles, the hardships which seem to never end, the temptations which some days seem to lurk around every corner, and yet know I am pleased with you.  You are My child and I love you.

Sometimes you might be tempted to think My love is dependent upon your choices.  Know that it is not.  I love you infinitely and unconditionally at all times. There is nothing you can do to increase My love for you, for My love already is. There is also nothing you can do to lose it.

Do you know My Son, Jesus?  I sent Him to earth to live and die for you. By My power, He also rose from the dead for you.  He paid the price.  I know you can never be perfect.  I created you, remember?  I created you to reveal My glory – that all would know the incomprehensible wonder that I am – so that they in turn would choose Me as Savior and Lord, so that we can be together again for eternity.

You see, that is the product of My love.  I made you in My own image, knowing you would not be perfect, knowing I would have to save you, providing the way back home to Me, because I wanted to demonstrate to you and for you the depths of My love.

I am the God of restoration. There is nothing so broken that it cannot be restored by Me.  I delight to restore!  How I rejoice to walk beside you in your restoration process.

Persevere. Though the path be rough, do not give up.  I will never leave you or forsake you.  I love you infinitely already, remember?

There are gifts for you from Me for each step forward you take.  Do not worry about tomorrow. Tomorrow has enough worry of its own. Do not worry and do not fear.  There are those who can harm your body, but they cannot touch your destiny in Me and for Me.

Look to Me alone.  I will never leave you or forsake you.  I say it again, because I want you to never forget  the truth: I will never leave you or forsake you.  Remember the path of Jesus.  It was not easy either.  He encountered evil and was persecuted and oppressed.  Yet, through His suffering I brought great, eternal victory for many.  I can turn all things for eventual eternal good because I alone am GOD, Lord, Sovereign, King.  And I alone am good, filled with mercy and abounding in loving-kindness.

No matter how dark it may get here on earth, look to Me.  I am your Light in all darkness. Come to Me when you are weary and I will refresh you.  Lay your head on My lap, rest in Me and let Me carry your load.  These burdens were not meant for you.  You must walk them out, but I carry them (if you will let Me), just as I carry you.

Seek to hear My voice.  I am gentle, humble and all loving.  I do not condemn or reject, but invite, include and accept, so long as you choose Me and My way as Lord.  Seek to hear My voice and I will be Your Shepherd. Each moment of each day I will lead you in the way you are to go.  I will refresh you.  Seek Me and My way minute by minute, day by day.  Obey in the seemingly ordinary and seemingly illogical and I will pour My Spirit into you and through you that when people see you they will see Jesus Christ – not by your power, but by Mine.  For you were created to reveal My glory.

That is your job – to let Me shine through you wherever life takes you.  You are to reflect me as the moon reflects the sun on good days and bad, on hard days and delightfully easy ones.  Look to Me alone in all things and your joy will be complete. Trust Me and your days will be days for rejoicing because you will know I am with you and make all things new.  You will know I am with you and when you obey what you hear (for you will have learned to recognize My voice), it is then you also will experience the overflowing abundance of how I provide perfectly for you.

There are consequences to choices, but I am Victor over all of them and I can and will turn all things for good in light of eternity in the lives of those who love Me and follow Me.

Will you follow Me? Will you seek Me beyond anything else?  Will you let Me lead you through every moment of your day? I am the Lord who heals you.  I am the Lord who loves you.  I am the Lord who knows the way. Will you let Me use you on hard days and on good days?  Will you be the lamp carrying My light on dark days that others might see and know I am Lord?  I love them all – every one of them.  I want them all with Me forever, but first they must see Me in order to choose whether or not they will acknowledge Me and bow to Me and in so doing find their way home.  My heart aches until they are with Me even as it has ached for you.  Will you let Me use you in all your circumstances, in all your feelings of inadequacy to be My love to them, so they will see and know I am Lord?

I love you.  Never forget.  I love you as you are and you cannot lose My love. Simply turn to Me and keep on turning.  Come to Me daily and repeatedly in honesty and contrition. Come to Me and celebrate what I have done and will do!  I know it is not easy.  I will always forgive when you ask and what I wipe away is forgotten!  I always will heal you day by day by day.  I am your Refuge and strength.  In Me is your great and never-ending purpose.  In Me is mercy, love, abundance and rest.  Never forget, I will always love for you are My beloved child and I am well pleased with you.

Humbly written down as “heard”  by Elizabeth Burgard Fulgaro (c) 2012, the evening March 13, 2012 when in response to a request I asked the Lord if He had a message for those in the Salvation Army’s rehabilitation program. However, it is not just for them, but for all who are hurting and recovering from different life challenges.

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
