As I prayed late last night, I was saying, “LORD, why is it so many are in the valley of indecision regarding their purpose and call, the very thing you have empowered them for in this hour?
You have spoken to me that is this month of great change as well as Thanksgiving, we would begin to have new connections and many would be led to a new location for divine appointments.”
The LORD said, “Come closer, for this is not the time to struggle but it is a time to snuggle with Me, to listen to My Voice, to pray without ceasing, for many feel scattered and shattered and caught up in the fear of the unknown.
But I say to you, it is a time of reinforcing your trust in my word to you in Hebrews 11:1,
“Now faith is the substance of things hoped for, the evidence of things not seen.”
“As I have spoken to you, you just shall live by Faith. I now have come to remind you that your hands have been trained to war, your heart has been trained to trust, yes, trained for your mind must be trained to let My Mind be in you, you have been empowered to empower, and appointed for such a time as this,” says The Father.
“Now faith brings our hopes into reality and becomes the foundation needed to acquire the things we long for. It is all the evidence required to prove what is still unseen.2 This testimony of faith is what previous generations were commended for. Faith empowers us to see that the universe was created and beautifully coordinated by the power of God’s words! He spoke and the invisible realm gave birth to all that is seen.” Hebrews 11:1-3 TPT.
“My Beloved family, even though your feelings are continuing to try to override your spirit in this hour, I say you are physically in a ‘Holding Pattern’ that will soon release you to the place your spirit is longing for.
I caution you to beware of double-mindedness. Stay focused with a single eye full of light. The light shall lead you to your appointed assignment that will carry out all that which has been entrusted to you,” says The LORD of all wisdom.
Suddenly, my mind was flooded with memories of those who have gone before me, those whom God used so heavily in my life to make deep deposits of Truth, and those who walked the walk faithfully answering God’s call to live by faith, standing firmly on the foundation of The Word of God.
As I pondered the many whom The LORD had used to rescue, deliver and disciple me, my heart is full to overflowing with His unfailing Love, to handpick just the right intercessors and faithful disciples to patiently sow into my life.
I now realize that just like Paul, they understood and faithfully guarded what God had entrusted to them.
I hear The LORD saying, “This also is a set time for the older to teach the younger. They were many that have gone before you that are mentioned as ‘Heroes of the Faith’.
In these dark and fear-filled days, many are looking for a hero and I AM calling for those who will demonstrate heroic deeds and Faith beyond measure that will be remembered as Anonymous Heroes of the Faith — but their names shall be well remembered in heaven,” says the Creator of all.
“So shall many seasoned mature Warriors be entrusted to live out their Faith and Testimonies in relationships much like Paul had with Timothy.
They have been appointed and empowered to guard the many deposits entrusted to them for the glory of The LORD in these last days,” says The Father.
“There are some that you have planted and sowed into in the past, whom I AM sending back to in this great hour when many are in the valley of decision.
It is time to Review, Renew, and Reset their faces like flint, to forge ahead fully equipped to finish their race,” says The Great I AM.
The word Entrust in Hebrew denotes appoint to remember or deposit. The dictionary defines ‘Deposit’ as a verb…. store or entrust with someone for safekeeping. “a vault in which guests may deposit valuable property.”
Have you ever stopped to think about depositing your most valuable ‘property’ or information or life experiences? i.e. Testimonies of HIS love and goodness and saving grace with another.
I challenge you today to ask yourself this one thing, “What has God entrusted to me?”
You may be surprised of the riches He has deposited in you as a safe place. Or better still, know how deeply He has trusted us when He entrusts another to us, to disciple and train them up in the way they should go.
May The LORD our God continue to open up the eyes of our understanding to totally embrace a Kingdom perspective in this late hour.
May He allow us to see our “small world” through His eyes and may He reveal the bigger picture that only He can see, for our greater revelation, as we step up to meet the challenges of these last days of dark and light.
May we let that thought marinate in your heart until it is totally absorbed.
We must get a new understanding through His Perspective, that pretty much everything that has been given to us is something He entrusted to us, that changed the way we live, and that is a continual process, that we realize we are ever learning.
“Today, if you lay aside the spirit of entitlement,” says The LORD, “you will be clothed with a fresh garment of humility and holiness that will enable you to no longer be deceived by the pride of your heart — but will be filled to overflowing with transparency and Truth to run with the message of Love, Joy, and Peace.
For as you lean in to listen and heed My Word to you, you will no longer to lean unto your own understanding, but you will go forth with a guarded heart that desires and chooses to live and speak with a new bold assurance the good news of your Savior Jesus Christ, who rescued you over and over out of darkness into His marvelous light,” says The Father to His Children.
The LORD’s Grace to Paul
“I thank Christ Jesus our Lord, who has given me strength, that he considered me trustworthy, appointing me to his service. Even though I was once a blasphemer and a persecutor and a violent man, I was shown mercy because I acted in ignorance and unbelief. The grace of our Lord was poured out on me abundantly, along with the faith and love that are in Christ Jesus.
Here is a trustworthy saying that deserves full acceptance: Christ Jesus came into the world to save sinners — of whom I am the worst. But for that very reason I was shown mercy so that in me, the worst of sinners, Christ Jesus might display his immense patience as an example for those who would believe in him and receive eternal life. Now to the King eternal, immortal, invisible, the only God, be honor and glory for ever and ever. Amen.”
The Charge to Timothy Renewed
“Timothy, my son, I am giving you this command in keeping with the prophecies once made about you, so that by recalling them you may fight the battle well, holding on to faith and a good conscience, which some have rejected and so have suffered shipwreck with regard to the faith.” 1 Timothy 1:12-19 NIV.
May you accept the appointment, the appointed time, with the empowerment of Courage, Holy Boldness and Unending Faith to finish your race well and may you keep your hearts with all diligence as you meet every challenge of Love, Joy, Peace and Forgiveness in Jesus’ Name.
