“Be still and know that I AM God and that I AM in control of all that is going on around you.
Do not be dismayed at what you see…. the great calamity that surrounds you at every point.
Don’t you know that I have to allow certain things to take place to bring about My perfect will?
My ways are not your ways nor My thoughts your thoughts. Even though you press in to have the mind of Christ, you still do not have a full understanding of My ways.
For I love My people, and I want them to know that these are serious times. I want to shake them and wake them to alert them to not allow the enemy any place in their lives.
For the little foxes, the things you easily overlook and not even try to overcome…. they are the things that spoil the vine…. the fruitfulness of My life manifesting through yours.
You are My people called by My name, and I want to use all of you as vessels of honor. But where many of My children are at this point in their walk with Me is not a place of overcoming victory.
Many are laid back, apathetic at My calling them to seek My face and pray. Many are complacent, wrapped up more with current events than they are coming before Me honoring Me with their intimate presence and feasting upon My word.
I need you to come before Me and sit at My feet and just bask in My presence. I need My children to draw close to Me and humble themselves before Me. I need My children to pour their hearts out before Me.
I said if My people who are called by My name would humble themselves and pray and seek My face and turn from their wicked ways…. then I would hear them from heaven and I would heal their land.
But many are not desperate to see Me move across this land. They are not desperate enough to stay close to Me.
They do not love My presence…. to draw close and feel My heart beat for them, nor do they really want to partake of the deep cry of My heart that all My children would be saved from the wrath that I will pour out upon the earth.
Draw close to Me, My lambs, and let Me snuggle you close to Me. Let Me pour out My peace upon you that you may lay down in My safety.
Feast upon My word. Be still and know that I AM God and that I AM in control.
Be still, be quiet and assured that I will lead you and guide you into all truth. For I love you, My little lambs.”

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.
