Turn to Me; I Will Refresh You

You are the Living Water who refreshes us, sustains us and gives us life. We yearn for more of You as in a desert and You always answer with an increased outpouring of Your love & revelation of Your Way.

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 AM the stream in your desert.  I AM the water in Your wasteland.  I am calling you because I love you and desire to refresh you.

You keep running the other way, chasing after other things as if they would satisfy, but they will not.  I AM the One who satisfies for fellowship with Me is that for which you were created.

I delighted to create each of you and I created each of you differently, but equally and for the same purpose – to be in Me as I am in you (once you have invited Me in) and to be My ambassadors for My glory leading others in My way that they might be free as well.  How I love it when you work together in unity, the many parts of My Body functioning as one under My Head, Jesus Christ. This is the synergy and unity for which I created humanity and it is beautiful in My sight.

You are My beloved adopted children.  You are My servant and friend.  Does this confuse you?  I delight in your inquisitiveness!  It is good!  I want you to ask.  I want you to seek Me. For the more you seek and mine for My Wisdom as for gold, plumbing the depths of My word and worshipping as you seek to understand My heart and My strategy and praying as you unite your purposes and plans with mine, the richer you will be.

I am your abundance.  In Me all things live, move and have their being.  You can do nothing unless I enable it.  You have no need to worry or fear because I love you and promise to care for you if you will look to Me and seek My kingdom as your singular priority and the most precious of jewels.

My kingdom is a place of reverence, respect, unity, worship, awe, prayer and action.  To seek My Kingdom is to seek My Kingdom-view of your life which I view from the perspective of eternity.

Seek My view; seek My purpose.  It is in My view that you will discover My way.  It is in My view that the secrets are unlocked in which you will delight yourself like a child and find the peace, joy and contentment which you never knew was possible.

I am Supreme. There are secrets.  I will share My heart with you when you seek Me.

In My Way of viewing your life (and the lives of others) you will find My peace – an inner peace which surpasses all understanding. In My Way, your joy will bubble up like a perpetual fountain in the lush oasis of times which are easy and the desert of times which are hard.  Your waters will never fail, for they will be the Living Waters of My Spirit. You will be immersed in My Spirit, who will continue to fill you to overflowing and flow through you as the River of Life to touch others in My perfect way.

I am a mystery because I am Supreme to you but I will reveal Myself layer by layer to you if you will seek Me and stop running away.

Does the idea of being My servant scare you?  Are you afraid to give up your will for Mine?  My Son was your Servant, healing the sick, releasing those captive to ungodly spirits, feeding the hungry (spiritually and physically), serving even in the seemingly unglorious task of washing His disciples feet.  Servanthood is My glorious way!  It was in Jesus’ role as My Servant-Son, serving Me with complete obedience, that He served you by dying on the cross.  He was obedient to Me unto death, giving up His physical life so that death was conquered and you could have life.  He died for you as Your servant and Mine for love of Me and for love of you.  He died for you, if you choose to respond in love or if you reject Him and continue in your own way.  Your response changes nothing.  He served. He serves.  It is My Way of perfect love.

I cannot be mocked.  You are either with Me or against Me.  You are either seeking My Kingdom perspective and My will or you have chosen Your own way. Do not expect My sovereign covering which includes My provision and protection to accompany you if you have chosen any way which is not Mine.

There is a right Way – Mine – and a wrong way (anything else).  You can make up your own way, which you call right, but this will not make it right.  You can try to justify a way I have told you is wrong, but no matter what you say nothing will change what I have created as wrong into My right.

I will not bless wrong paths.  I cannot.  For you have walked away from Me, are not with Me and have opted to put yourself outside under My Lordship and under your own (which is that of my adversary).  I honor your choice.

I say it again.  I will not be mocked by you.  I AM the Lord.  If you choose not to treat Me authentically as your Lord there will be consequences.  You cannot expect the blessings of My covering when you are not with Me under that covering.

And yet, I love you and I am waiting for you to turn.  I have more for you.   Plumb My depths.  Seek My Way and let Me use you as My servant ambassador displaying My righteousness and love through you for My glory.

You do not have to be perfect, just a seeker who keeps seeking.  I will work with you, refining you as silver and transforming your heart day by day as one by one My secrets are revealed to your heart in response to your seeking.

Be My shining jewel.  Worldly wealth leads to no where.  I am all You need. I am enough.

In My will is freedom from all the oppressive messages of your culture.  I define success in a different way – it is obedience to Me.

When will you learn that I put no value on celebrity or earthly titles?  These are of no use to Me.  My kingdom is a kingdom of the heart where you already are infinitely valued for I created you and love You.

My Kingdom is a place where every person in every circumstance has good purpose revealing the reality of who I am through their lives.  My Kingdom is a place without fear, worry or anxiety because you never have to fear losing My love, I have plans and steer you in them (when you listen and take courage to obey), all My plans are for good and not for evil, I can be entrusted to enable you to have enough financially, by My power opportunities are placed before you which I have ordained for you and others are closed to you because it is not in My good and perfect will for you, and in My kingdom death has been conquered.

Physical death will occur! There is no avoiding it.  I have something better for you!  With Me physical death is no longer to be feared because the fire of eternal death is extinguished for those who  follow Me and physical death becomes only a door to your eternal, good destiny with Me and all the faithful who have gone before.

To those of you who have been running from Me and all the goodness I offer, I am calling and won’t stop. All of you who have begun to turn, keep on turning and let Me be your delight.  All of you who have been seeking more, keep on seeking My Wisdom (My Way) as the most precious of treasures and you will be satisfied and content in all circumstances.  Your peace will be great and your joy will overflow. Your wasteland will become a field for My harvest, which bears My fruit for My glory all the year round.  And many, many will find their way back to the fullness of faith and life in Me (and for Me) from here through eternity, which has always been My purpose.

I love you. I am here for you.  Let Me refresh you.  ~ Love, the Father, Son & Holy Spirit.

Author: Elizabeth Fulgaro

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
