As I was writing in my book about the heart recently, I began to think about what it means to have a Loyal Heart.
I was actually reading about so many betrayals taking place in our world at this time, and so many people saying that they are seeking God — but He is not answering.
I suddenly heard that still small voice speak to me… The LORD said, “Many who say I AM not speaking, cannot hear me because I AM not saying what they wanted to hear.
Many others cannot hear Me, because I AM not speaking — but teaching — them to wait patiently!
Literally, I AM letting Patience have her perfect work, so that greater endurance, deeper hunger, and greater trust would be developed in the hearts of all who love Me.
Beloved, I AM here to assure you that darkness may seem to surround you, and in the darkness, you may think I have deserted you, but in this hour of great tumultuous happenings coming from a darkened world, you cannot believe — or put your faith in — what you see right now, but you must walk in Faith by what you cannot see,” says The One Who is The Light in the darkness..
“You must always remember, and rely on this one thing,” says The Father, “there are many temptations abounding in these end times, and the tempter has come to tempt you to take matters in your own hands when you cannot see anything clearly.
When I The LORD God have not brought you light, you must not make your own light.
When I have not yet shown you the next step, you must not try to create your own pathway or bring a human reasoning solution to something that requires wisdom from above, and a light on your path,” says The LORD of Glory.
“Always remember those who came before you. Remember, I promised Abraham a son but Sarah was barren and could not give him a son.
They actually lived in the darkness of that unfulfilled promise for twenty-five years, but they were emptied of every possible thought of their own strength making it happen.
So it is today, I am again developing heart of deep dependence and loyalty in my chosen to trust me with all their hearts and hold to my unchanging hand for I AM seeking loyal hearts and never wavering leaders to recover all and rule and reign in victory.
For you shall with unveiled faces see and reflect My Glory, as you are being transformed into my likeness,” says The LORD of all.
“So all of us who have had that veil removed can see and reflect the glory of The LORD. And The LORD — who is the Spirit — makes us more and more like him as we are changed into his glorious image. How many remember the trauma of growing up into maturity from youth to a teenager and on to adulthood? There were many tests and difficulties that came to bring maturity. SO it is in this hour with the family of God. God is allowing tests and deception to allow us to grow up in our faith and learn to stand firm against the enemy who comes to kill, steal and destroy. But we must always take up our shield of faith and operate in the weapons of our warfare and walk in the authority that we have been given for our weapons are not carnal but they are mighty.’’ 2 Corinthians 3:18 NLT
Just as former President Donald Trump sends out messages daily that he will never give up fighting for America, as an intercessor, I have taken a stand to never give up or let go of the promises The LORD has given me that I have yet to see fulfilled.
When my hip got dislocated recently, I felt much like Jacob wrestling with God while darkness is all around — but wrestle we must.
I have decided I’m going to wrestle with God until dawn breaks! Indeed, I am not letting go of the promises you have given me God, until you bless me!
Jacob was 130 years old and had served God faithfully and he was crushed and even said, ‘Everything is against me’. (Genesis 42:36)
Beloved, have you ever felt that way?
Have you ever shouted to God in your pain?
Have you ever struggled with your emotions and thoughts until you were drained of all of your energy?
This one reality is what I love about Jacob, he continues to be loyal to God and his covenant with God!
Beloved, I believe in this horrible hour of betrayals, our loyalty to God is being tested at the highest level of trust.
Are you waiting on God for breakthrough and do you feel as though you are ‘at the end of your rope’?
Yes, are you willing to prove your love and loyalty no matter what the cost?
I heard The LORD say to me today as I fought a hard battle in intercession, crying out to GOD, “I will not let go!”
The LORD replied, “Tell My Warriors, this is a time of ‘counting the cost’ and coming up higher above the thundering battle.
I AM your safe place. I AM your Intercessor as you stand firm in your intercession.
I AM saying once again, “It is finished!”
Though the battle is raging, the prize has already been won, so do not doubt, do not waver.
I see your heart that is rooted in Faith and filled with My Love, and I rejoice in your unwavering loyalty, for My Loyalty to you will soon be boldly demonstrated as I bring Justice and Order to The Nations!” says the only true God.
