Forgive, Release Them and Let Them Go!


You have felt lack of comfort and have been agitated, even snapping at those closest to you.  My anointing is boiling within you.  I AM provoking a reaction, to action in your lives.  The fire of provoking reveals your hearts.

Jealousy and territorial preservation wants the best seats.  These want to be considered the right person in everyone’s eyes.  These have no idea of My nature and character.  These are immature and have not learned that I don’t take sides of opinions, for I love you all.

Each person has their own path and directions by Me, and they don’t all walk the same way.  Why are you offended by the one who is now walking a different path?

Being one in My body a lot of times, means you won’t all agree.  A foot doesn’t function as a tongue.  Putting your foot in your mouth is uncomfortable for it reveals the inconsistency of how I function in MY body.

I hear the whispers and I read your thoughts.  You feel you have lost your identity in Me.  Understand this beloved, that each part is just as important!

I have not demoted you; I promoted you!  Promotion doesn’t necessarily mean more numbers.  It may mean a lonely walk a lot of times; but the outcome is just as important to Me says the LORD!

As My anointing increases so you must decrease.  Your destiny demands accountability to ME.  I shall provide true confidants to stand with you and for you.  Yes, even a small circle of those I trust with you.

No one has arrived to perfection in this life!  It will always be a process of loving those who reject you or bearing with those who think they are better than you.  Some feel they must perform to be high and lofty in their imaginations.  This life is not a popularity show or competition.

Sometimes you get to a place where you have gone as far as you can go on your path.  Destiny demands change, and many don’t like change!  Then there are those you once loved deeply, broke bread together and shared deep secrets.

Now these believer’s have gone another way!  Forgive them, release them and let them go.  Even now; even if there are unresolved feelings and attitudes.  Forgive them, release them and let them go.  Oh! How I want My body to be one….. says the LORD!

For those who have deep insecurities say, “Let us make towers, let us make a name for ourselves!”  Some would even try to regroup, recruit and reenlist!  These may say in their minds, “I have advanced so far that no one understands me!”

Simply put, insecurity will cause fear to reign over the work of MY hands.  The ways of My kingdom are not the natural ways of man.

I AM coming for MY body, and each part is of total value in My eyes.

My will is to develop your tongue and mind to be one that is learned, humble, meek and a gentle soul.  I want to teach you how to speak a word fitly spoken.

Paul got into a heated issue with Barnabas and they split apart.  Splits are not always of the devil.  Beloved, don’t you know when I scatter the seeds it is for the sake of extending the gospel?

Those I put together will be of like heart and mind.  Each will be part of extending My gospel message.  Don’t put trust in man beloved.  People will come and go and many of them will be in your life for an important purpose, then I take them on.  Forgive, release them and let them go.

If you have been divided and got hurt beloved, there are still those loving you from both sides.  When I move you on, it should be a clean cut.  However, because of the flesh holding on to people, it is like a ripping or tearing apart process that happens.

The flesh holds on to what it feels it is loosing.  Realize from heaven’s stand point that not all will agree, but that is okay!  You move forward with me and forgive, release and let them go.

King Saul’s insecurity made him demonically crazy!  He was threatened by the new kid on the block.  What he failed to receive was the new kid played by My rules, says the LORD.

When you have these type of feelings you need to come aside and let me cleanse you through repentance.  All insecurity comes from a root source.  Fear drives many of My people to perform for acceptance or drive people to distraction.  I know these things and I want to heal the sources of these deep wounds.

Be careful not to touch or speak against previous leadership or even previous godly friendships; they had to go and don’t let it bother you anymore.  Forgive, release them and let them go.

Learn to even appreciate the ones you use to know and closely loved.  Appreciate what I did through them on your behalf.  Remember the giants you destroyed together!  These were there with you for My season.  I want My body to heal and I want My body to be one!  Appreciate them even though I led them on a different path of destiny.

Respect the diversity, celebrate the memories of days gone by.  They were part of your training by Me, says the LORD.

I look to those who are poor in spirit and of a contrite heart that tremble at My Word.   Some of you are now understanding why things turned out the way they did.  Be not bound anymore to the past!  Forgive, release them and let them go!  Says the LORD!

“And certain men which came down from Judaea taught the brethren, and said, Except ye be circumcised after the manner of Moses, ye cannot be saved.  When therefore Paul and Barnabas had no small dissension and disputation with them, they determined that Paul and Barnabas, and certain other of them, should go up to Jerusalem unto the apostles and elders about this question.”   Acts 15:1-2 KJV.

“And some days after Paul said unto Barnabas, let us go again and visit our brethren in every city where we have preached the word of the LORD, and see how they do.  And Barnabas determined to take with them John, whose surname was Mark.  But Paul thought not good to take him with them, who departed from them from Pamphylia, and went not with them to the work.  And the contention was so sharp between them, that they departed asunder one from the other: and so Barnabas took Mark, and sailed unto Cyprus; And Paul chose Silas, and departed, being recommended by the brethren unto the grace of God.  And he went through Syria and Cilicia, confirming the churches.”   Acts 15:36-41 KJV.

This song, as the LORD was speaking/ singing them to me for you also.

He is No Fool”There once was a man born of high circumstance
Heir to advantage, he had every chance to succeed
But light from the cross made his dreams appear small
And to their surprise he went far from it all
For the love of his Savior, for one priceless jewel
They could not understand so they called him a foolHe is no fool
If he would choose
To give the thing he cannot keep
To buy what he can never lose

To see a treasure in one soul
That far outshines the brightest gold
He is no fool, he is no fool
He is no fool, he is no fool

There once was a boy who could run like the wind
Given to lead, every man was his friend at the line
But light from the cross made his race appear small
And to their amazement, he followed the call
For the love of his Savior, for one priceless jewel
They could not understand so they called him a fool

He is no fool
If he would choose
To give the thing he cannot keep
To buy what he can never lose

To see a treasure in one soul
That far outshines the brightest gold
He is no fool

Show me the fool who abandons his life
To walk in the steps of our Lord Jesus Christ

He is no fool
If he would choose
To give the thing he cannot keep
To buy what he can never lose

To see a treasure in one soul
That far outshines the brightest gold
He is no fool, he is no fool
He is no fool, he is no fool
He is no fool, he is no fool.

  1. Thank you so much for these encouraging words.
    I need God word each day to get me through the day, His grip on my spiritual lift to help me stay focus, and not get entangle in my own sinful nature.
    The Bible shows and tell me it OK to leave circumstances in Gods hand, He can handle it far better than I can.
    Have a great day

    • I am so sorry it has taken me so long to respond.  I give all the glory to God and thank you for your encouragement and I stand with you for God and his will to remain focused, amen!  Much love, dear Kathryn Much love beloved of God <3

  2. Sister, the psychos are still on my heels, on every way and over and over in my private rooms. Even today. I took pictures…Sometimes they share “accidently” what their diagnosis is. They speak their own judgments and they do not know it yet.
    Hordes of psychologists want to have “right”. Christians – take care of your hearts and minds ! Many are under surveillance !

  3. Dear Sherry- May I thank you for all the work you put into this awesome Word!  This Word is a masterpiece of heavenly craft & blessing, full of the true Word of God, a divine work of Love. It so ‘blew me away’ as it spoke directly into my life that I began sharing it with others around me.  There are many different lessons woven throughout the theme of this post here.  The Lord commented at one point how He doesn’t take sides with opinions.  That was my point to a beloved friend at one time of 6 to 7 years ago, but it seems to have caused a ‘drift’ between us.  We have since moved on, leaving those sticky unfinished loose ends behind, with hard feelings.  I didn’t realize how these differences of opinions need to be cleaned up at Jesus’ feet, so that we can forgive & release them and let it all go, and move forward.  The Lord is cleaning up every little speck of anything of the past left over in the corners of our hearts, and your work certainly helped tremendously.  I’m humbled and grateful to you to see all the hard work that went into this post, but in the eating of it, it proved to be a great blessing!  Thank you for your faithfulness to the Lord!  I wanted you to know it hit target!  rick

    • Thank you beloved! I am so grateful that God is flowing through this vessel. He never ceases to amaze me.  Rick I give all the glory to God! AND I thank you for taking the time to continue encourageing me in the beloved.  I am His handmaiden, and may I always remain that way.  The older I get in God the more I understand how we must remain childlike and close to Abba.  He is lifted up in Jesus name!  Much love Rick and God bless you! <3
