Before time began, I was there. Before you were even born I knew you. Why do you question why I do the things I do? Don’t you know that all things work together for your good because you are Mine? If you try to figure out the reasons why I do what I do, you will lose track of My sovereignty for My ways are not your ways. They are so much higher. I see the finished product of what I am accomplishing in you. You only see the temporal realm. You must look towards the vision of My promise being revealed to you in the natural. Yes, you must see the finished product of what you are believing for.
The enemy is trying to rob you of what I AM planning to do in you and through you by coming on strong with adverse situations. Yes, he is trying to wear you down to defeat you. But yes, you are wise because you have been seeking My face. Yes, wise as a serpent and harmless as a dove I have made you. And you have been bold to take your stand and not give into the fear of man, and I AM pleased with you.
Now I want you to return unto Me even stronger than before. You have gone through the fire and have submitted to the purging, and I AM taking you up to a higher level. Now worship Me unceasingly as a way of life with your actions and attitudes of your heart. Worship Me with your speech by speaking things that are edifying to My will. This is the day and the hour where I AM preparing you for a mighty move of My Spirit, and I must be able to trust you and that is why I AM purifying you in this hour. I AM burning off all that is not of Me, and I AM cleansing you deeply.
Beware of the tactics of the enemy trying to defeat you. Be wise with all your decisions. Yes, seek My face and My will, and I will guide you in the way you are to go. Be ready for I AM pouring out My glory. Be ready for My greater works ministry. Be a part of My end time army, and never hesitate to believe that you are worthy to partake of all that I AM doing. You are Mine, and we are one, and I have a major part that I want you to play in. Keep your focus on Me and not your circumstances, and even be thankful for all you are going through, because I AM preparing you, and I AM making you strong.
So know that I AM with you always, and I will never let you down. Even when it looks in your natural eye that I am not fulfilling My faithfulness to you, believe that I AM. Trust Me always no matter what you see or feel, because everything is working for your good. Now rejoice and be glad. I AM a faithful God, and I keep My word to you. When you look back you will see that My hand has always been upon you working in your heart that you may totally rely on Me.
I AM working out of you that independence and pride that you can make it on your own. I AM humbling you that you may cry out to Me “Abba Father”, and with the faith of a small child trust Me. For if you do not enter into the Kingdom of God as a small child, you will not enter in and see My glory. So humble yourself before Me and rest in Me, and let go completely and let Me take over, says your God.

Yolanda Ballard of At The Father’s Feet website shares with you, the body of Christ, the words she’s received quietly sitting at the Father’s feet. I believe Jesus set the example for us to follow. Whenever He could He would come apart from the busyness of the world so that He could quiet Himself before the Father, for that is where He received direction and strength to carry out His will.
