Have you been wondering how God is going to make sense of the chaos we see around us? If so, He recently gave me a very moving prophetic word for you today to encourage you.
Here is what the Lord says to you today:
"Precious child, I see that the things that should be new in your life feel old and damaged instead. Your energy, your stamina, your wisdom that you relied on, your opportunities—you thought all these things could sustain you, but time has proven that they cannot.
"I see the hurt of your heart and the fatigue of your soul. I see that you have been run over and trodden upon. However, I am your strength and your sustenance.
"I am the only one who can take care of you now and forever. I am the only one who can bring you into a double portion and even a triple portion of blessing; human wisdom is not enough. Earthly wisdom has no place in the heart of those who seek Me, and earthly wisdom can only bring you down the wrong path. You need to know that I am your shield right now.
"I am your shield now and forever, but you have been feeling very alone and even abandoned. I know this, and I am reassuring you today that I am with you always, and I am protecting you right now.
"Your faith in Me has been tarnished, but I have established boundaries around you to keep you safe even during this trial. I have hedged you in behind and before and laid My hand upon you. Ask Me for perfect vision. Let Me help you to see the difficulties around you with My eyes of redemption. I want to help you even more than you desire to be helped; but it's extremely important to remember that My children who come to Me must believe that I exist, and that I am a rewarder of those who diligently seek Me.
"I have made you a free person. You can choose to believe or not to believe, but the destiny that I intend for you is the same. I created My plans for you before the foundation of the world. However, you need to understand that you can either receive or not receive your destiny.
"My plans for you are not guaranteed to come into manifestation unless you obey Me. You are a free person, and I will never violate your free will. You may choose Me or choose things other than Me. You can have everything I have for you, or you can receive nothing I have for you. It is your choice. Beloved, I would above love all things that you would prosper and be in health, and that your soul would prosper too. But in order to prosper the way I desire for you to prosper, you need to obey Me.
"This is a time of patient reflection and of seeking Me. I have so much land for you to take. But in order for you to take the territory I have for you, you are going to need to face some giants. There are giants of unbelief hounding you right now. There are giants of peer pressure that tend to bring you down. Even the peer pressure of culture can lure you into so much compromise that you can lose your soul in it.
"Beloved, I remind you right now that My Word is the only thing that stands forever. It is neither legalism nor bullying for Me to tell you that. I am simply teaching you the truth. Your life is but a vapor, and only the eternal will last. So please, live for the eternal. Please, as your loving, caring, concerned, tenderhearted Father, I adjure you:
"Keep your eye on the prize. I am the prize. I am the only person worth living for. My beloved child, please, set your mind and keep it set on things above, where I am. Set your eyes on the beauty of My Son Jesus, who lives making intercession for you right now. I love you, My child. I love you so much. My heart yearns for you. I miss you and crave you. I long for you to make up your mind to set your life and heart on Me. Oh, how I love you! And it breaks My heart every day to see you living as less than you are.
"You have come so far, and I am proud of how far you have come. I am so proud of you! But I have more for you than you could ever dream, and it hurts my heart for you to live small. Please don't live small anymore.
"You have a tenth—a rusty tenth, or even less—of what I desire to give you. And when I give you 10 times more, I will give you 10 times again! And 10 times beside that, again and again! I love to give to you; I cannot manifest Myself as who I am in your life without giving to you extravagantly and abundantly! Do you not see My abundant giving in the gift of My Son? My Child, My boy, My tender One, the Son of My bosom—I gave Him to you so you could be saved! If I gave you My Son, My most precious possession, do you really imagine that I would ever withhold things from you—things which cost Me nothing?
"Far be it from Me, child. I have given you My most precious Son, and He was willing to give His very life for you. We will not now hold anything at all back from you. We did not hold anything back then; We certainly will not hold it back now.
"But there are guidelines, My precious child of My bosom. (Yes, you are My child of My bosom too!) There are rules that establish the tenets of righteousness and justice, and I cannot cross the boundaries of righteousness and justice—for they are who I am.
"I cannot be anything less than who I am, so I must insist on holiness. I am holy, and I cannot reward unholiness. I am righteous, so I cannot reward unrighteousness. I am faithful and true, so I cannot reward a lack of faithfulness and truth and purity.
"It's true that your sins are covered by the blood of My Son Jesus when you confess them and repent of them. However, you are also to work out your own salvation with fear and trembling—taking the righteousness that I have made you on the inside and working it outward to manifest itself in everything you do, think and are on the outside.
"I am the peace that you seek. I am the fire that will burn in your life and drive you forward into all the land I have for you. I am the strength that you need. I am your hope, your shield and your salvation.
"You can do nothing without Me, so why do you even try? Please put away the desires of the flesh. Put away your desire to please yourself, to bring yourself pleasure outside of My presence and My will. Put away childish things and seek Me, your Father who sent you!
"Live for the eternal, My child. This is a time when you get to make a choice. You can either choose to be lukewarm or you can choose to be blazing-hot on fire for Me. If you choose to be lukewarm, I will spew you out of My mouth. There is no salvation outside of lordship, and real lordship requires you to be hot on fire and pursuing Me with passionate love.
"But you can choose to be hot on fire even if you don't feel like it yet. I know where you are, beloved. I know what your heart is like. I know where you hurt, what you struggle with and the decisions you face. You can be honest with Me, for I know everything anyway.
"All you have to do is choose to be hot on fire for Me, and I will help you with everything you need after that. But I cannot make the choice for you.
"You are a free person, a landowner. The land that you own is the land of My blessings for you. But you cannot access My blessings until and unless you choose Me, for you must diligently seek Me to obtain My rewards.
"I love you, My child. Come to Me, and I will give you rest. I will keep you safe and secure, and I will strengthen you to run and finish the race that is set before you.
Beloved, does this word speak directly to your heart today? If so, stop and pray over it. Talk to the Lord about what He is doing in your life.
He is listening. His ear is tuned to your cry, and He wants to help you move forward with Him during this season.
