Prophetic Word: Come Spend Time With Me

Lord, we are so grateful that You call us to come away with You. Majesty, Ruler of the Universe and Creator of all, how we are in need of Your love, power and guidance. So often things here do not make sense, how we desire to lean on You more. Teacher, You alone are the Way, Truth and Life, we look to You alone and trust in Your promise to lead us, especially through the rough and dark places which otherwise seem to overwhelm us. You are our Anchor and our Rock and we are so grateful that You invite us to be in You, our Refuge where even in the worst situations You lavish upon us Your love and care, as You accompany us on our journey back home to You forever. Truly, truly in You we find life. In Jesus' name, Amen

Christmas is the season when we contemplate the love of God and stand, kneel, celebrate and bow in awe that GOD Most High would come to us so we can return to Him.  He is calling for us to spend time with Him. He has always been calling. This can be one of the most difficult times of year to set aside time to be with Him and yet, it is the most essential. This morning as I sat quietly with Him reading the Bible, He downloaded the following “word”. It does not condemn but is pure love.  May it bless those for whom He intends it.

Please also remember as you read, that 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 call you Martha. I have called you to be Mary. Stop. Breathe. Breathe Me in and breathe Me out. Spend time one-on-one with Me. You run and keep on running, but that is not My pace for you. That is not the pace for which you were created. There are seasons like the farmers’ season of harvest when the days must be so full. But this is to be a season, not a lifestyle.

I see you under the burdens you carry. I see you. How I long to remove these from you. But My way is first to remove them from the inside out. There is a mental battle which must be fought—a choosing to press in and learn My way so that you can wield the sword of My Spirit which is the Word of God, which I gave you as your offensive weapon in My spiritual armor so you can stand before the enemy’s schemes.

But you cannot wield for you inner and outer protection and fight back with that which you have not learned how to use. You must spend time with Me. It is a choice.

How I long to teach you My way and share with you the hidden greater things for these are the true jewels. How I long to help you if you will but come to Me for My yoke is easy and My burden is light. How I long to care for you My way, but you must choose enough to trust and to listen and to spend time with Me when I call you.

Closeness with Me where you experience the contentment, peace and joy I have for you even now, is found as you seek Me and seek Me more for you will find Me when you seek Me with all your heart.   You will find Me and in the deeper revelation of My Truth and My way in My love your joy will finally be complete for in My joy is your strength.

My joy is always pouring forth as an aspect of My infinite incomprehensible love. My joy is the knowing that victory is Mine. It has always been Mine. What the enemy intends for evil (and the evil which pours forth is more than an intention. It is real.) I have already overcome. And I Myself, sovereignly take all these horrid things and in due time I use them to strengthen you, to draw you close to focus you on the truth of eternity even now and to focus you on the very real battle here in our midst where I win but desire to work through you to help usher in My victory. (It is the victory which Jesus already won.)

Remember, My Son. Remember Jesus. The enemy had no true power over Jesus for He is Lord! Yet for love of Me, evil happened to Him and it was allowed so I could bring My greater good. I saw. I wept. It was allowed. It was heinous. The greater victory has come forth for all to see.

Be prepared. Understand. The enemy will appear to win but he is a liar. Deceit is his middle name. There is no truth in him and he has no lasting victory for I turn all ashes into eventual beauty because I alone reign in eternity.

Yet this adversary will seek to discourage you, distract you and steal from you all the goodness I have for you even now. Call to Me and I will show you great and hidden things you do not know. When you seek Me, you will find Me when you seek Me with all your heart. Come to Me all you who are weary and burdened and I will give you rest. Take My yoke upon your shoulders for My yoke is easy and My burden is light. Do not worry as the pagans do about what you will eat or drink or what you will wear, but seek My kingdom first and all these things will be given unto you. For I know the plans I have for You—plans to prosper you and not to harm you, plans to give you a hope and a future. For My love and thus My kingdom are everlasting. Remember My kingdom is not of this world. Once you join My kingdom because you have seen Me, you are no longer exiled to the adversary’s kingdom of the air here. And your destiny is no longer eternal death, but you too become as I, Jesus, was—in the world, but no longer of it. You become My adopted children. You become citizens of My kingdom with all the rights of citizens. This does not remove the evil from this world, but it does allow you to move through it. There will still be pain, sorrow and great injustice. It does not mean I am not there. Listen and I will bring you through. I am Emmanuel “God With Us” and I am there with you now through all of it, guiding and directing. It is why Jesus asked the Father and the Father sent Me, His Spirit. I AM the Master Shepherd. I ensure you have green pastures in which to rest and still waters from which to drink as I lead you day by day, moment by moment on this journey home which will travel through valleys where the shadow is death, sadness and mourning. But you are journeying home and in My perfect timing, which will suddenly seem like a twinkling of an eye, I will draw you fully to Myself.

Until then, if you do not make time for Me, if you do not listen to Me so you can seek to hear Me and follow, you will not emotionally survive the onslaught which is coming. Only in Me are answers. Only in Me.   There is no understanding without Me and since at its root this is a supernatural spiritual battle, you cannot manage this on your own. You need Me because I am God and you are not. The spirits of this world are also supernatural (so greater than your natural capabilities), but I am greatest. I reign supreme. Thus you cannot survive without Me.

Yet if you will simply look for Me, I will bring you through it. Ask to hear and I will teach you to hear My voice for I desire to lead you and use you for My purposes even in what seem like the tiniest things.

Choose to listen and create spaces in your day for Me. I will teach you how to do it. I speak with My peace. I do not contradict who I am. I do not shame. I do not make afraid. I neither condemn nor hate you. But I do speak with truth and you will know it is I if you seek to learn.

I have so much for you. I know the responsibilities you have to get through this life. They are not a surprise to Me, but learn to listen interiorly for My voice for I love you and will guide you through it and will tell you what to do, when to do it and when (and this is more often than you think) to be still with Me.

I am your strength. I am your refuge. I am your source. I am your shield. I am the One who loves you and who created you for My good purpose. I am the One who restores, refreshes and heals. There is hope in no other. Listen and I will teach you how to come and be still with Me and receive all I have for you even now. It will be for you a delight beyond all you can imagine. I love you.

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

  1. What you wrote off came out this weekend almost word for word. To the word about the yoke I now add another look at the love God offers when He takes off the yoke in Hosea… then when He realizes that we have in some cases been hunched over so long under the enemy…then He bends down from Heaven to put food right under our mouths…That He loves us enough to step off the throne and lean down out of Heaven to take care of us that personally is priceless!  Thank you, God, for this gift and others that are the gifts of your love for this season and everyday.

  2. Elizabeth, your recent blog here with the word from God…yes, I am one person who it is intended. If I weren’t broke (can’t afford one of my meds 220! 30 day supply..praying but know the money just isn’t there)…anyway, I would certainly donate.
    I forgot you are a financial wiz. Wow.
    I’m struggling to work out a realistic budget and tracking all money we have. In order to avoid overdrafts we’ve stopped putting it in our checking account and using cash only. Overwhelming but seeing some things not seen before. Nonetheless I’m spending a lot of hours and think there must be a quicker way. I’ve no idea how to resume using the checking acct….
    Didn’t mean to drift from my response to your amazing blog.
    You truly inspire me.
