I Have Seen Your Pain; I Will Restore

Lord, You gave all for us though we have done nothing to deserve it. The place of Your suffering and sacrifice is the place of our redemption. We rejoice in Your cross and bow humbly in thanksgiving for the incomprehensible gift of Your love.

PROPHETIC WORD

Please remember, 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 have seen your pain.  It is not unknown to me.  I have seen it. I have felt it.  I have wept,  for I love you.

Life here is not easy.  It has never been for there is a spirit in the air which is not Mine, looking to destroy.  There will be pain. There will be suffering.  Look at My Son!

And yet, if you will let Me, I will take all these things, which can seem horrible beyond comprehension and I will use them to heal.  I will turn them into good and this goodness will not just last a moment, day, week or even a lifetime. The goodness I will bring through it is for eternal effect in your life and the lives of others.  There is no end to this good effect!

There is nothing so destroyed that I cannot restore for I AM the Lord.  No other can do what I can do for I AM the Lord and there is no other.  What people break and wound and injure, I heal and restore.  Scars may remain as long as you walk this earth, but I will restore in a way that goodness comes forth like a flower in the desert.

I know it is hard where you are and not what you planned, but I am asking you to worship Me from that place. Will you rejoice in who I AM, reminding yourself of all that I AM and declaring My promises?  If you do so, your reward will be immediate and great.

First, I will write My promises on your heart just as I have engraved you on the palms of My hands.  No longer will you forget Me just as I do not forget you.

My promises etched on your softened heart will give you strength to endure in hard places.  You will see Me and I will pour out My joy on you and through you by the power of the Holy Spirit, though it may not make sense in this place.  And My joy will be your strength.

Joy is not happiness and to be happy is not the same as joy.  Happiness is for happy times.  Joy springs up like a gurgling fountain in unexpected and dry places and where it flows cannot be stopped by circumstances.    This is because joy is from Me alone!

Joy is the fruit of trusting in Me, My Way, My purpose, and My promises through everything even when what you can physically see, taste, hear, feel and smell seems to fly in the face of it.  Joy is a gift from My Holy Spirit to you.  It is a kiss of My love to help sustain you – if you will receive it.

You must choose joy even as you must choose to trust.  You must choose to look at Me and believe what I am teaching you and especially when you are discouraged and it doesn’t make sense.  Then your joy will be complete and you will be strong in Me.  And My peace which surpasses all understanding will flood your mind and heart.

Oh, how I love you!  Oh, how I long for you to understand how much I love you!  My love for you cannot be contained, cannot be stopped and is never ceasing.

I AM the Lord God!  I dwell in heaven and on earth.  I created all things.  I have no need to suffer and yet I did – willingly through My Son – all for love of you!!!

Do you understand yet?  I entered into suffering though innocent because I love you so much.

I know your shortcomings – your sins.  Nothing is hidden to Me.  I saw you before you knew I AM and I have known every thought you thought was hidden and still My love does not stop.

I AM waiting for you truly to receive My gift of forgiveness.  I AM waiting for you to forgive yourself.

If I, God Most high, who knows all can forgive you, then why can you not forgive yourself.  Do you not know that from east to west, from infinity to infinity, I have forgotten what I have already forgiven? All you had to do was ask and I wash it away and remember it no more!

Stop listening to the condemning voice within you and beside you.  By the power of My Name and what I have done on the cross for you, command it to be silenced and be gone! It is not Mine!  Yes, I want you to leave wrong behaviors, attitudes and mindsets behind because I know the freedom and blessing which awaits you in My will and Way. But I do not condemn you!  I wait for you to turn, ask Me to forgive and become free!  Understand I am waiting to forgive and wash away all that burdens you.  Come to Me again and again when you are burdened and I will remind you, what you have asked has been forgiven and I remember those sins no more.  It is My great delight and I am waiting to do this for you. Ask Me. Ask Me.  I am faithful.

And never forget, I will not leave you – ever.  Though you may choose to walk away from Me, there is nothing you can do to cause Me to stop loving you.  I AM LOVE and it is not in Me to be able to stop.  I cannot.  I will love you infinitely, unconditionally and forever, whether you decide you desire to love Me and be with Me or not.  Your choice will be respected!  But My love (and My grief to not have you with Meif you choose another way) won’t stop.  I yearn for you for I created you for fellowship with Me.

Never forget that I have great, redeeming purpose for you right where you are.  I waste nothing!

If you are in a dark place, what better than to be My Light!  Let Me shine through you!  Seek Me and let Me use you there to reach many, many others with my redeeming, freeing, joy-filled Truth!

Rest in Me where you are.  Know you are not forgotten.  Worship Me.  Pray, asking Me for what you want.  I will hear you.

My child, know with certainty that in your darkest moments, I am with you.  I say again, I will never leave you or forsake you.  Trust Me!  Don’t turn away…turn toward Me.  I am asking you to trust Me now though it is hard.  Lean on Me and not your own understanding.  I am faithful.  I am faithful!  Seek Me with all your heart and watch how I will comfort you.

I will use all for good. I will use all for good.  Have you heard Me yet?  I will use all for good.  You will see My restoration and know it was Me and it will be greater, higher and broader than you could ever imagine.

Hush now, My child.  Be at rest in Me.  Receive My peace and sense how I am pouring My peace which surpasses all understanding out over you by My Spirit as a river.  Soak in it.  Let it refresh you and consume you, filling you to overflowing.  I am showering you with My love, singing over you My songs of love, joy, forgiveness, understanding, healing, redemption and restoration.  These are My promises to you!  Feel My joy in you welling up.  It is My gift to you!  It will be My witness to others.  And it is for My glory that you would be blessed.  Rejoice! I am showering You with great love! Rest in Me.  Continue to rest. Revel in who I AM in the quiet of your soul and let Me sing to you of your beauty to Me, comfort you and bring you even more joy in the morning. I love you.  ~ Jesus

humbly written down as “heard” on Wednesday of Holy Week, April 4, 2012 by Elizabeth Burgard Fulgaro (c) 2012 when asked if I had a word for the women incarcerated in Minnesota.  As with all prophetic words, this is for them, but also for others, especially those are suffering and undergoing hardship in their own private ways.

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
