Exodus 14:14 (AMP) The Lord will fight for you while you [only need to] keep silent and remain calm.”
Beloved, there are moments to take up your sword and fight, and moments to rest and watch Me fight for you. This is the moment to keep silent and watch as I move on your behalf. Am I not God? Am I not sovereign? Is My hand too small? The concerns of your heart are moving Me to action, beloved. Watch and wait.
I AM YHVH Sabaoth (the Lord of Hosts) and the heavenly hosts are at My command. The kingdom of darkness will not stand against us. We move in righteousness and light. And darkness cannot overcome the light, but rather light overtakes the darkness. So shall I, the One who created light, overtake the adversary and the kingdom of darkness. Watch and wait.
Quiet your spirit as you wait. Pray. Stand in agreement with Me. Align your heart with Me as you rest and trust. You are in My hand and there is no place safer for you. As an impassioned Father, I AM moving on your behalf. Watch and wait.
Psalm 56:8 (VOICE) You have taken note of my journey through life, caught each of my tears in Your bottle…
Beloved, you are not unseen. I am not heartless to your cries. Every tear you shed is precious to Me. Your heart is precious to Me. I see it all, and am with you through it all. Beloved, do not lose heart. Resist the temptation to throw in the towel. Though you may not have My perspective, know that I am seeing the true impact of your tears, and they are watering your harvest.
Each tear is like a small prayer, a groan of your heart too deep for words. Do not under estimate their power. Just as a tiny seed can grow into a huge tree, so each of your small tears can have weight far beyond what their size might imply. So stay the course, fix your eyes and heart on Me, and trust that all things are working together for good.
1 Corinthians 1:10 (TLB) But, dear brothers, I beg you in the name of the Lord Jesus Christ to stop arguing among yourselves. Let there be real harmony so that there won’t be splits in the church. I plead with you to be of one mind, united in thought and purpose.
Beloved, seek peace and harmony among the brethren. As you consider others above yourself and extend grace and mercy – seeking to understand, assuming positive intent, and covering your brothers and sisters in Christ in prayer – you will find it easy to operate with My heart and in My love. Pray first, speak second – if at all. Trust My Holy Spirit to do the work in each other’s hearts. Each of you is responsible for your own personal growth and My Holy Spirit will show you what areas to work on next – just as you trust Me to do that in you, trust that I will do the same in others.
Resist the urge to be prideful if I’ve already addressed and area with you and you’re walking in victory in it, but your brother is not. Extend the grace you wanted to receive, use your strengths to cover one another’s weaknesses. Truly function as a body. Walking in love and tenderly caring for each other, compensating when one area is weakened or hurt, allowing time for strength and maturity to be built. Love one another and bear with one another in love.
Lead by example. Even if others walk in pride and point out your weaknesses – exploiting rather than covering – do not respond in kind, but rather walk in humility as My Son did – simply being Who I created Him to be and acting in a way that was pleasing to Me rather than retaliating or defending Himself. Trust Me to cover you when your brethren let you down, but don’t stop walking in the manner I have called you to because even if no one else sees it, I do.
