Every aspect of your life is either made up of a cause or a motivation to bring you forth to make a decision that will either bring about My will in you or through you; but you must decide if you want to yield to My work in you or to continue to put forth your own will. For if you choose to allow My will to take place, the outcome of your decision will bring forth abundant life, but if you choose to do what you will, the price to pay will be death. For in that decision you are joining hands with the one who comes to steal, kill, and destroy everything that has to do with your life.
This is the day to choose life or death, blessings or curses, abundance or lack. In the words that you say and the thoughts that you have determine what your actions will be. You need to look forward and not always to the present for what you decide will effect what you will walk into. Whether you react out of your flesh or whether you respond out of My love will effect many lives. It is like throwing a pebble into the water and you see the swirls of water that flow out from it. That is how your decisions and reactions effect your life and others.
So this day I want you to examine your heart whether you have put on the shelf some important aspects of life that I have taught you about. Like living the resurrected life you need to die daily. To have authority you must be under authority. If you give with a pure heart, you will reap much. To save your life you must be willing to lose your life.
This is the day to count the cost whether you have what it takes to go any further. To build a house you must know what it takes to be able to complete it. For you are coming up to the finish line, and the enemy is coming on like gangbusters ready to destroy what you have built, to hinder you, and to completely get you out of the race any way he can.
He’s coming on with much deception, with much retaliation, with division, with disease. Keep guarded daily covered with the power of My blood and My word. Keep your armor intact, your sword sharpened, and most important stay behind your shield. For when you come out from behind it, you will immediately get hit with fiery darts and missiles sent to destroy your faith which is My faith in you.
Beware for the enemy is out to destroy your most powerful weapon against him which is My love. Beloved, die daily allowing My love to flow. Many are wounded out there and are perfect vessels for the enemy to flow through to wound you. Be harmless as doves and wise as serpents. Pray daily for My wisdom and to know the strategies of the enemy. And remember I didn’t bring you this far for you to fall, but that you would be strengthened in the fight, to rise up as a mighty warrior, to breathe in this last wind to be able to run forth in victory. The finish line is right there ready for you to break through to glory!!!!

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.
