Words of Encouragement
Brought forth by Yolanda Ballard.
Now is the time and the hour for the Lord to pour out His power and through those who are made ready! Yes, I can feel it. Those who are in the third trimester, birth it forth! The breaking of the water, the rushing of the wind, it is coming! To sweep through us like a mighty waterfall busting down the dams and letting the River flow forth! It will come like fire and rain, the mighty anointing! Piercing through hardened hearts! Stream forth, Mighty River! Press through the hindrances and the distractions. Come into that intimate union with our Lord! Deep calls unto deep at the sound of the waterfall!
Like the hart pants after the water brook, so my soul pants after you, O Lord. We feel your presence, and we are at awe with You, with Your glory! We rest in You so that you can build us up for the final run where you will release through us Your mighty power like no one has ever seen before! We lay our heads upon your brow and hear your heartbeat.
Rest, My beloved! Rest in My faithfulness for I care for you! Breathe in My life and My love! And exhale! Like living waters flowing through you! Intimacy, sweet intimacy, bride with her Bridegroom, come dance with Me.
The end of the age is upon us, and we must be ready for there will be mighty signs and wonders, but they will not be of Me. You must be able to tell the true from the counterfeit. You must be able to tell the light from the dark. I said that if I prolonged the stay that even the elect would be deceived. So draw close to Me by worshiping Me, not allowing anything to stand in your way; that is where you will be made strong and be made ready in My secret place hidden in Me.
Escape the giants, escape the lies of the evil one, keep your eyes upon Me. Stay covered with My armor of Light behind My shield of faith, and you will not be hit by the lies of the evil one! Grace and truth shall be your banner, you will wave it high! You will not be afraid of those who will come against you.
You have made yourself ready loving not your life even unto death! What does the enemy have to take from you? You have lifted it all up to Me, your soon coming King! Escape the tribulation by hiding in the cleft of the Rock, which is Me! Remain faithful unto death, and I will give you the crown of Life!
Father, I look unto You, the author and finisher of our faith. You started a good work in us, and you are faithful to complete it. There is nothing for us to fear for you are with us. Your rod and your staff they comfort us. You prepare us a table before us even in the presence of our enemies. Surely goodness and mercy shall follow us all the days of our lives. And we will dwell in the house of the Lord forever!
Thank you for the peace that passes all understanding, for your great grace that sustains us, and for your mercy that triumphs over injustice. You have vindicated us! You have set us free from the prison walls! Like a bird set free from a snare you have made us to be!!!! So that we can soar in you high above all power and principality, seated with you at the Father’s right hand!
We will not fear what man may try to do to us! You will supply all our needs; and if you choose to take us, we are ready! For absence of the body brings Your holy presence in the fullest measure! You have made us all one in You as You and the Father are one!
Blessings, and glory, and honor be unto You, O Lord! We magnify Your holy name, we exalt You, lift you up for You are high and lifted up, and your train fills the temple. There is no one like You, Most Holy God! We place our trust in You from this day forth. We are set secure with heads set like flint.
Your will is our will, Your kingdom come on earth as it is in heaven! Finish this deep work you have started in us, Lord! For you are faithful!
Mighty Lion of Judah, we love You! You have a heart of gold, full of such deep love, unquenchable love, burning fire love, penetrating deep! When you roar the heavens shake! All the powers tremble! You are King! Blessed Redeemer, Mighty God, we love You!

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.
