Look Past the Natural!


Things aren’t what they appear to be.  Do not look at the circumstances surrounding your situation, but look to Me the author and finisher of your faith.  Do not judge your situation as if you are losing the battle or not by how you are handling it.  Do not judge it by saying you do not have the victory over it, because you do not feel that you are overcoming through it the way you would like.

Don’t you know that all things work together for your good because you are Mine, and all of your steps are ordered by Me?  I AM your loving Father, and I AM concerned about your attitude that you have as you walk out your trials.  Cast all your care upon Me for I care for you.  Be anxious for nothing, but in all things ask of Me, and I will reply graciously.  But remember that it is all in My timing will you see the answers to your prayers manifest for I AM working in you endurance.

Let go and let Me have total control of what you face each day for I AM stretching you and preparing you for mighty things to take place through you.  Yes, I AM preparing you so that I can do a mighty work through you for yes, these are the latter days, and I promised you that I would pour out the rain.  An outpouring of signs and wonders and miracles I will do through you.  So do not fret that you feel you are not overcoming the way you would like to be.  Remember that I AM in control of all things, and let Me be the judge of your actions.

I lead you and guide you into all truth, and I deliver you always from the snare of the fowler.  I cover you with a blanket of My glory.  I engulf you in My grace, and I bless you with all good things, because you are Mine.  Look up for your redemption is drawing nigh.  Yes, I AM drawing you closer to Me and preparing you for My return, for you are My bride, and I embrace you with My love.  Yes, I love you so and long for the time when we will be together in glory.  It is sooner than you think.

Prepare your heart by examining your attitude towards others and toward what I allow you to go through.  Refrain from murmuring and complaining.  Count your blessings.  Do not allow the enemy to rob you by focusing on the negative circumstances.  Yes, count your blessings one by one, and be grateful for I AM your loving Father and I supply all your needs.  Yes, even those things that might not be comfortable or pleasant at present.  Look to Me and not to your own strength to endure for I AM stretching you and preparing you.  You are about to run your final stretch of the race and yes, it will be hard and the times will be treacherous, but keep My word in your heart and keep Me before you always.

Reach out to Me, and I will keep you safe, for I cover you with a multitude of angelic hosts that surround you always.  Yes, they are assigned to lead you and guide you through the storm and protect you.  Yes, I keep My promises for I AM faithful. These are the latter days and you are My people, therefore, you are victorious.  You are mighty warriors.  You will overcome because I say that you will.  Keep My word in your heart.  Do not look at the circumstances, because things are not what they appear to be.  Now just trust Me, says your God.

  1. Romans 4:13-25 (NKJV) The Promise Granted Through Faith
    13 For the promise that he would be the heir of the world was not to Abraham or to his seed through the law, but through the righteousness of faith. 14 For if those who are of the law are heirs, faith is made void and the promise made of no effect, 15 because the law brings about wrath; for where there is no law there is no transgression.
    16 Therefore it is of faith that it might be according to grace, so that the promise might be sure to all the seed, not only to those who are of the law, but also to those who are of the faith of Abraham, who is the father of us all 17 (as it is written, “I have made you a father of many nations”) in the presence of Him whom he believed—God, who gives life to the dead and calls those things which do not exist as though they did; 18 who, contrary to hope, in hope believed, so that he became the father of many nations, according to what was spoken, “So shall your descendants be.” 19 And not being weak in faith, he did not consider his own body, already dead (since he was about a hundred years old), and the deadness of Sarah’s womb. 20 He did not waver at the promise of God through unbelief, but was strengthened in faith, giving glory to God, 21 and being fully convinced that what He had promised He was also able to perform. 22 And therefore “it was accounted to him for righteousness.”
    23 Now it was not written for his sake alone that it was imputed to him, 24 but also for us. It shall be imputed to us who believe in Him who raised up Jesus our Lord from the dead, 25 who was delivered up because of our offenses, and was raised because of our justification.

  2. The promise appropriated through obedience. Abraham and His life reflected the new testament truths of.
