Draw close to Me, My children, for I delight to be with you… when you give Me your undivided attention. I am so pleased when My children draw near to Me and delight to be in My presence.
Come unto Me all who are weary and are heavy laden, and I will give you rest and will refresh you…. because the enemy has tried to come in as a flood to destroy you…. to try to discourage you and divide you from My intimate presence. But you, My children, will not allow that!
Nothing will separate you from My love. You love to draw near to Me and bask in My presence. I am your chief joy.. .to be able to worship Me, obey Me, and seek My face. You love so much to be with Me for I see your hearts.
For some My word is like a stumbling block, and for those who are close to Me, it is a stepping stone. Keep your hearts pliable, My children, for I will soon be revealing to you things in your heart that you need to let go of. I will be bringing to the surface areas in your heart where you not completely and fully trusting Me. There are areas you are holding on to doing things your own way. You have not completely let go and let Me have full control. There are areas you are still holding on to; therefore, there are areas of bondage in your hearts.
So come unto Me and open your heart completely for Me to enter and purge all that is not of Me. For this is a time of new beginnings…. time to set the captives free to be the people I called them to be. Now is the time to make amends with your brother. Now is the time to pay back your debts to those in My body…. words that you have not kept and even things you haven’t returned after you have borrowed them.
Now is the time to search your hearts to see if there is anything on your part that is holding back unity in My body…. even anything that you have done to cause bitterness in the heart of your brother. Now is the time to search your heart for the little foxes are those that spoil the vine! Things that seem minute and unimportant could be that which is holding your brother in bondage.
So I say to you… draw near to Me….. search your heart. Let Me do a deeper work in you of utmost importance for this is a time of uniting My body, 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.
