Walking through the purging, through the fire of My love, I did not say it would be easy, but it would be necessary.
Because, I need a people who are baptized with My brokenness, totally dependent upon Me, and are yielded to doing My will no matter the cost. For when you go through the fire, all that is not of Me will come to the surface and a humbling of the spirit will take place. You, therefore, will be able to see what had been hidden that which has been a hindrance to your walk with Me.
Are you sincerely honest with Me about all things?
Are you even sincerely honest with yourself?
For I AM doing a deep cleansing and an unveiling if you are truly willing to go through My purging process. At times it will not be pleasant finding out areas in your life that have been done under presumption and not of faith.
Yes, you presumed that I was leading you in a certain direction, and it was not Me. But what have I said to you in the past through My word?
I said that ALL things, work together for good to those who love Me and are called according to My purpose. Yes, even your mistakes work together for your good.
So lay it all out upon the altar. Humble yourself before My mighty throne of grace, and I will lift you up.
Take off your masks before others and be real. Do not pretend to be something that you are not before My people, because this causes even My little ones to stumble.
My young ones need to see real experiences where people show their humility and weakness before the Lord. It causes them to grow when they see Me work in people who are being their real self and not pretending to be something else.
Oh, My children, I AM so pleased with you that you have endured through so much fire. You have never given up on My faithfulness even though you struggled so, and at times did not walk in My victory.
But I love you just as you are, and when you fall, yes, I lift you up and encourage you and meet you right where you are. And yes, we take off on the path of righteousness I have ordained. You have lost no ground so do not let the enemy beat you up with discouragement and despair. There is no condemnation for those in Christ Jesus.
So remember everything you go through is for your good. I love you and since I AM for you no one can come against you and succeed. No weapon formed against you shall prosper.
This is the day of salvation. Choose ye this day who you will serve. Will you continue in works of flesh by putting on a false face, or will you be real before Me and my people. Be an encouragement to others by walking in My love, My unconditional love. Be willing to accept others who they truly are, and be real yourself and willing and trusting to receive My love through others.
Yes, this is the day of salvation, of deeper revelation of who you are in Me, and that you are truly loved and exactly who you are. So remember it is more important to stumble and fall before Me out of humility, rather than give into pride and work it all out in your own strength.
Where do you think the most growth will come? For I will exalt the humble and bring down the proud. Stay close to My side and walk peaceably with all men. Do not give into offense. Pick up your cross and follow Me for I AM meek and humble and My words are easy to receive. They are mixed with grace and truth. Who the Son sets free is free indeed, and I have set you free!
Believe and receive and rejoice for this is your Jubilee!

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.
