A word of admonition…
COME, STAY BEFORE ME!
This is the time and the hour that I will pour out My power, but how many of My people truly know Me, not just know of Me, but truly have an intimate relationship with Me? How many truly take the time to come before Me and just listen to what I have to say to them? My people, I would admonish you to come before Me daily, and seek My face and listen to what I have to say.
Do not come before Me with your own agenda pre-planned in a format and precisely timed as to how long you will spend praying for each item for this is not My will. Come with an open heart ready to press in for My will to be done through you.
Yes, this is the time and the hour that I will pour out My power, but are you ready to be the vessel I called you to be to carry that power, for if you are not truly ready, that power that I will pour out upon you could not only destroy you but those around you. I need you to empty yourself of anything that is not of Me, all of your pre-planned agendas of putting Me in a box.
Get rid of all of that immediately. Empty yourself of all of that format of formalism and religious traditions of how to seek My face.
Just humbly come before Me open to receive My will.
This is a new day, a new beginning for you to let go of all of the past, and start fresh seeking My face and My will for how I will use you in the latter day outpouring. I will pour out My Spirit in abundance of dynamic power.
Signs and wonders will fall from the sky. Lightning and thundering will fall at the outset of My spoken words through you, for I said greater works you will do for I have gone to the Father, and I have sent My Spirit back to do the bidding of the Father in the land.
And thundering of fiery conviction will fall on the unrepentant heart, both in the camps of believers and unbelievers, for I said judgment will first fall in the house of the Lord, then to the unsaved. The terrible day of the Lord is at hand, and there is no time to waste with your own agendas of how to gratify your own flesh and how you would serve Me, for My ways are not the ways of man nor my thoughts your thoughts. My ways are so much higher!
Do not lean on your own understanding, but in all your ways acknowledge Me, and I will direct your paths. I say to let go of anything that would trip up your time. Don’t even listen to your thoughts saying that you are too busy to come before Me or too tired or too distracted with self-gratification.
What is more important, to please yourself or men, or to please your God? I AM your Father and I said to not have any strange gods before you for I AM jealous of your time and commitment to Me.
So let go of all the distractions of the world and even of men who say they want to do My will. Be careful who you listen to, because there are many wolves in sheep’s clothing ready to devour you with snares and lies of the enemy. They will try to do anything to try to side track you from My intimate presence unknowingly. They don’t realize that they have given into the service of the enemy in trying to trip My people up.
So I say to you this day to be wise as serpents and gentle as lambs. Put on your armor securely and seek My face. Look longingly, keep your gaze on Me, never look away for I AM your life, the light in the wilderness, the true vine, your sustenance, your provider.
I AM all things to you: the Prince of Peace, Mighty God and also your Father. So look unto Me 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.
