In My spirit, I have been hearing The LORD say, “Daughter, there is an area in your heart that I desire you to a deeper awareness in your heart.”
When I come with a gentle hand of correction regarding the spirit of frustration. I have come with A Word of Caution that you might not fall into the enemy’s trap of pointing the finger or even get caught up in the emotion of frustration when you look on outward appearances.
Practice with care the spirit of discernment as you begin to speak prophetic encouragement, shift immediately into the eyes of the spirit for man looks on the outward appearance, but The Spirit of The LORD always looks on the heart.
Many Prophetic Words are rising up in this season that are repetitious of what has been prophesied and some are becoming an echo of apology for words they have spoken, but I say to you this day, take care how you see and check your heart before you speak, lest you fall into presumption or opinions” says God who is love.
“I AM looking on the hearts of My People and I AM calling them out to say, I know your name and I know your heart, but you do not see the pride of your heart that is displayed in many of your actions and you do not understand that much of your disobedience is rooted in fear,” says The LORD.
“Many have become willing, but have not pushed past their fears to fully obey. They are stuck in their fleshly mindset of trying to figure it out.
But I have come to deliver My People from the self-deception of their comfort zones and the foolishness of those who are struggling with self preservation,” says Yahweh.
“I AM come to build deeper trust in My called out ones, for I AM not a God of lack, but I AM your protector and I have a proven record that I AM your Provider.
When it was necessary, I fed My People manna in the desert and I taught them trust one day at a time.
You are coming to a deeper fresh reality of The Truth of who I AM and you are being given a choice to ONLY BELIEVE for I AM a good, good Father.
I place before life and death and I say, you must choose life it is yours for the taking. I say to you, the spirit of death is hard at work with the evil spirit of deception all across the land but know this.
I AM The Life Giver,” says the lover of your soul “and I AM unwrapping the grave clothes and bringing resurrection life to My creation.”
“The hour is late,” says The LORD, “and I AM shifting My People into high gear on their journey of ACCOUNTABILITY.
It is time for My People to take note of, “If My People who are called by My Name will humble themselves” (2 Chronicles 7:14) and come to knowledge of The Truth of My Word in Matthew 12:36-37, that on judgment day each one will give an account for every careless word they speak, for by your works you will be justified and by your words you shall be condemned.
As Humility and Accountability work together, you shall find yourself on the narrow path of willing obedience.”
There are many definitions of ACCOUNTABILITY that encompass personal responsibility for actions, but this is one I saw on Google that I felt was so well stated re: Personal Accountability.
“Being willing to answer for the outcomes resulting from your choices, behaviors, and actions.”

When God allows life to be tough on us at times, He always has a goal in mind. His tough love will always lead to greater confidence and trust in HIM.
We are being prepared in this season for some of the greatest storms and challenges of great change that are far beyond what we can even think or imagine and it is urgent that we see ourselves as Mighty Warriors dressed for battle, and we must know in our knower, that the Battle belongs to The LORD.
The clashing between good and evil must be fought in the spirit as we submit to General of this Army.
In order to process this change from fearfulness to The Fear of The LORD, we must first acknowledge our fears and as it says in Psalm 131, that is when we battle, especially in our emotions, but glory to God, it is a struggle that leads to lasting peace and no more despair.
Despair is the refusal to struggle. We reach despair when there is no hope and we have given up.
Proverbs 13:12 states “Hope deferred makes the heart sick, but longing fulfilled is a tree of life.”
I hear The LORD saying, “Lay down your weapons of disagreement on petty issues, and fight the good fight of faith AS ONE, submitting to one another in Godly fear for the weapons of your warfare are not carnal, but mighty.
I say to you that a change of heart from the fear of the world to The Fear of The LORD is URGENT in this hour.
Your eyes shall be opened to understand many of those you have battled with as enemies are those who have no fear of God.
I AM clothing you afresh with strength for endurance, courage to stand, and wisdom that only comes from The Fear of The LORD.
UNITY shall prevail through selfless love and submission to one to another,” says The Father.
I leave you with this prayer today.
“LORD, I realize I have obviously made some mistakes in My relationships, in my walk of obedience, and even in my stubbornness, when I chose not to listen to wisdom but go my own way in my human reasoning.
But today I shake off the spirit of despair and discouragement over things I cannot change, and certainly I cannot fix.
I submit myself afresh to The Holy Spirit to lead me and help me learn wisdom from my mistakes.
I choose not to look back or justify my actions but I choose to humble myself under the hand of The LORD and exercise total accountability to The LORD in all things, in Jesus’ Name. Amen.
Please take time to ponder these scriptures in your heart as you think on these things and press on, forgetting those things that are behind and pressing forward to those things that are before us in Faith trusting The LORD to redeem, restore and recover all.
“So then each of us will give an account of himself to God.” Romans 14:12 ESV.
“Brothers, if anyone is caught in any transgression, you who are spiritual should restore him in a spirit of gentleness. Keep watch on yourself, lest you too be tempted. Bear one another’s burdens, and so fulfill the law of Christ. For if anyone thinks he is something, when he is nothing, he deceives himself. But let each one test his own work, and then his reason to boast will be in himself alone and not in his neighbor. For each will have to bear his own load.” Galatians 6:1-5 ESV.

“Why do you see the speck that is in your brother’s eye, but do not notice the log that is in your own eye? Or how can you say to your brother, ‘Let me take the speck out of your eye,’ when there is the log in your own eye? You hypocrite, first take the log out of your own eye, and then you will see clearly to take the speck out of your brother’s eye.” Matthew 7:3-5 ESV.
“For we must all appear before the judgment seat of Christ, so that each one may receive what is due for what he has done in the body, whether good or evil.” 2 Corinthians 5:10 ESV.
