All over the world there are people in homes, and people in broken homes; people with those who love them, and people who wish there was someone who did love them.
There are those who care about others, and there are those who don’t. There are people who know how to give, there are those who have difficulty giving.
There are those who hoard everything they can, and there are those who give so much of themselves that there is almost nothing left in them to give.
They seem to have nothing left but to breathe the air they are living in. Every person has an awareness of where they are in their surroundings. It seems as if surroundings dictate to us how we should conduct ourselves; in our surroundings.
We are affected by what is going on around us. But we are being called to a higher place. We are affected by what people say to us, but we are being called by The Voice that stirs us, for we are called to a place in such a time as this. It’s a call that is drawing.
It is a call that is stirring your heart. It is a call that can be soft in it’s nature, and it can be so compelling that it can cause you to suddenly shut out the things going on around you.
Your focus has suddenly shifted to a path that is not seen with your eyes, but it is drawn to the One Who is dwelling in you.
His Voice has your name in it.
“For the eye has not seen, nor the ear heard, nor has it entered into the heart of man the things that God has in store for those who love Him. But God has revealed it to those who love Him by His Spirit; yes, even the deep things of God.” 1 Corinthians 2:9-10.
The deep things of God that He is showing you have your name in it because it was meant for you to see and hear. There is nothing that is too hard for Him to do. His ways are higher than our ways and His thoughts are higher than our thoughts.
His intent toward you far supersedes anything that distracts your focus from His love for you. He will keep showing His intent until you finally respond with the obedience He is looking for in you. For it is God Who is working in you both to will, and to do, according to His good pleasure.
“For I have been calling you by name,” says The LORD.
“I have understood you in every question you have concerning My calling that I have given you. You are never alone. You are never without My Presence.
You are never forgotten while on the path of righteousness for My Name’s sake. I have given to you the keys of My Kingdom and the gates of hell cannot prevail against you.
I have given to you the tools that are giving you victory even this day, as you are hearing My Word toward you.
You have been casting down imaginations and every high thing that has been exalting itself against your relationship with Me. You have been wielding the Sword of The Spirit; the very Word that I give you.
It is The Word That Is Sent, and none of My Words will ever fall to the ground. My Word in you empowers you because you are abiding in Me. You are effective because of Who I AM.
You are hearing what I speak because I have healed you of your ways. When your ways please Me, even your enemies will be at peace with you.
For this purpose was the Son of God manifest; to destroy the works of the evil one. Now you will see. Now you will hear. Now you will comprehend what is the length, the depth, the width and the height and you will know My Love that has been spread abroad in your heart by My Spirit.
Know this day that I AM a Shield for you. I AM your Glory and the lifter of your head,” says The LORD.
“With great compassion, I have gathered you from the things that have been holding you from seeking My Presence. I AM making all things new in your heart and in your mind. I am building for you a sure House, and you will walk before My Anointed forever,” says The LORD.
“I send forth My Word. It will not return to Me void, or cancelled out. It will accomplish the thing for which I sent it.” Isaiah 55:11.
“As for me, I am filled with power, with the Spirit of The LORD, and with justice and might,” Micah 3:8.
