THE COST OF THE SACRIFICE
“I know you will go wherever I send you. I know you will do whatever I have called you to do. I have seen your heart, I have seen your sacrifice, I have seen your faithfulness and obedience. I know you will go. But will you stay? Will you stay in the place I have got you in now? Will you stay, doing what you are doing now? You are willing to sacrifice it all, but what if the sacrifice is actually all of that, and what I am calling you to do now is to remain where you are? There is greater sacrifice in that. A greater cost, a greater price to pay. It is harder for you to cling on to what I’ve got you in now. Leaving all this would be exciting and fun adventure, but remaining here can also be exciting and fun.
I know you will go. But will you stay?
I have called you to this place for now. To these people, for now. Remain here and remain faithful to Me. You will not get stuck in ‘comfort.’ I will not allow that to take root. Sometimes what looks like comfort can actually be the most uncomfortable place to be. The simple. The everyday. But it doesn’t have to be mundane. My greatest treasures can be found in these moments. My deepest revelations can be discovered in the daily rhythms. You have a call. You have a position. You are anointed and appointed for such a time as this. Shaping these people is going to be your greatest joy. I haven’t completed My work in you yet. I have not yet fulfilled My promises to you. My promise of JOY. If you left all of this now you would never experience the seeds that are going to blossom into your future.
Your KEY is in these days, these duties, these disciples, these darlings. I am shaping you through these people just as much as you are shaping them. Surrender to Me. Lean in and listen. Sense and discover My heart in each moment. The keys are in the revelations I poor into you as you lean into Me in even the hardest moments.
I am shaping you through these people just as much as you are shaping them
Things are changing, I promise you. I am pouring My new wine into your family. The best is always yet to come. You will only ever go from glory to glory. For I am good. I am GOOD. Empty yourself of all the old to make way for the new. I am purging you this year. You prayed for family, I gave you My vision for your family because I am DOING A NEW THING IN YOU. I am getting rid of the old – the old ways, the old habits, the old cycle, the old lifestyle, the old reactions, the old actions, the old ways. I am purging now. And I am purifying you all. Purifying you all to be able to POUR MYSELF INTO YOU in greater ways. My power, my strength, my grace, my love, My favour, My goodness. You will be a city on a hill. MY hill! Your family will shine My light. You will reign in life.
There will be healing. GREAT healing. Healing of the hearts, healing of the minds, healing of the bodies, healing of the souls and spirits. The enemy has come in to try and kill, steal and destroy, but I have come in to give LIFE and life in ABUNDANCE. You will see it now, you will see the turnaround. You will see My hand of power at work within you all. Others will see it. People will recognise. People will WANT it and I will give you opportunities to pour out upon them what I am pouring out upon you now. You will not be the same by the end of this year. Partner with Me. Stand in faith – together – UNIFIED, as one. I will do My work in you all as you partner with Me. Partner in prayer. Partner in PRAISE. Partner in purpose. Partner in the purging. Allow Me to purge. Allow me to purify. Allow Me to bring to the surface the dross that is contaminating My call. You WILL be healed.
Partner in purpose. Partner in the purging. Allow me to purify
CHOSEN AND CALLED
You will be healed. You are not too far gone, you are not a lost cause. Your family will be healed – you are in My hands, you are all My children and I have called you all by name. I have chosen each and every one of you for My cause, for My Kingdom. None of you will be lost – they will not even stray – do not let fear or human ‘logic’ enter your thoughts. I have them. I hold them. I have them from a young age, which is why the battle has been so intense. Don’t look to others seemingly ‘perfect’ families, for I have an even greater plan for yours. The battle has been over this very thing. The battle has been strong for this very reason. You have seen but a glimpse of what is to come. Your children will see visions, your sons dream dreams, your daughters will prophecy.
ACTS 2:17-18 TPT “This is what I will do in the last days – I will pour out my Spirit on everybody and cause your sons and daughters to prophesy, and your young men will see visions, and your old men will experience dreams from God. The Holy Spirit will come upon all my servants, men and women alike, and they will prophesy.”
THIS is your family call! And THIS is what you have been battling FOR for all these years. IT IS ABOUT TO HAPPEN! It is about to take place! The END has come! The new IS here! THIS YEAR!!! THIS YEAR!!! I will do My work in them, because only I can. You are rising up. YOU ARE RISING UP! I have been doing all My work in you for this moment of breakthrough! It all makes sense. It all comes together and works together.
SEE THE NEW WITH RENEWED MINDS
Romans 12:2 TPT “Stop imitating the ideals and opinions of the culture around you, but be inwardly transformed but the Holy Spirit through a total reformation of how you think. This will empower you to discern God’s will as you live a beautiful life, satisfying and perfect in his eyes.”
Remember My words, remember My truths and put the lies in the past. Look at yourself differently and SEE the difference, even before it manifests in the natural. Look at each other differently and SEE the difference – see the new, not the old, for it is going to take the renewed minds to see the transformation and to walk forward into this. Look at them differently and SEE the difference. SEE the people I have made and called, SEE My truths and My words over them. SEE IT ALL FROM NEW EYES and a fresh perspective. You are in the new, now live from that new. Leave the old behind. Leave the past behind, don’t let its tentacles grip you anymore. Leave the old life, the old marriage, the old family, the old lifestyle behind. Everything you have ever dreamed of is coming to pass. I will supersede even your wildest dreams and give you above and beyond the peace, joy, purpose that you have been dreaming of.
Eph 3:20 TPT “Never doubt God’s mighty power to work in you and accomplish all this. He will achieve infinitely more than your greatest request, your most unbelievable dream and exceed your wildest imagination! He will outdo them all, or his miraculous power constantly energises you.”
IT IS A NEW DAY! A NEW SEASON! A NEW HOPE! SEE IT!!! AND SEE IT DIFFERENTLY!!! It all lies in your eyes. How you SEE will release the breakthrough from Me. Do not fear it going back to the old, for THE NEW IS ALREADY HERE. You are IN it now. JUST SEE!
It all lies in your eyes. How you see will release the breakthrough from Me
Partner with Me in prayer and purpose. Put your family on the alter and sacrifice – pursue Me in it all and THIS YEAR YOU WILL SEE!!! I have given you this new wineskin FOR THIS NEW WINE!!!”
Isaiah 43:18-19 TPT “Stop dwelling on the past. Don’t even remember the former things. I am doing something brand new, something unheard of. Even now it sprouts and grows and matures. Don’t you perceive it? I will make a way in the wilderness and open up flowing streams in the dessert.”
Song of Songs 2:1-13 TPT “Arise, my dearest. Hurry, my darling. Come away with me! I have come as you have asked to draw you to my heart and lead you out. For now is the time, my beautiful one. The season has changed, the bondage of your barren winter has ended, and the season of hiding is over and gone. The rains have soaked the earth and left it bright with blossoming flowers. The season for singing and pruning the vines has arrived. I hear the cooing of doves in our land, filling the air with songs to awaken you and guide you forth. Can you not discern this new day of destiny breaking forth around you? The early signs of my purposes and plans are bursting forth. The budding vines of new life are now blooming everywhere. The fragrance of their flowers whispers “There is change in the air.” Arise, my love, my beautiful companion, and run with me to the higher place. For now is the time to arise and come away with me.”
Can you not discern this new day of destiny breaking forth around you?
