Draw your attention not to the circumstances that surround your life that can easily drag you down if you allow them to, but draw your attention to the fact that I am faithful to deliver you out of the snare of the enemy and use all things that you face for your good.
For I am the One that has led you to the water, but you are the one that has to take the step of faith to even drink of it. For I have given you the River of Life to drink from, and I have given you the Tree of Life that you must eat from. For I have given you already all things that pertain to life and godliness, but you must take responsibility to do your part in order to grow strong.
These are the days that evil will grow worse with each day, but at the same time My power is growing stronger within you. And as you gather together to worship Me, I create in you united a bonfire of My love that burns brighter and brighter.
When you unite yourselves with one mind and in one accord, you are creating within you the atmosphere in which I can move; but if you backbite one another and give into a critical spirit judging one another, you are opening the door so that the enemy can enter and devour the good work that I have begun within you. And then you must start all over regaining the ground lost, and renewing trust to become that undivided unit once again.
For you are a body, and you must function as one. You must love one another and care for one another as if you were caring for the members of your physical body. Every one has an important role in My plan and purpose for your life and for promoting My kingdom and My will on earth.
So I want you to take it seriously your part and function in the body in which you dwell. Know that everything you do has an effect on one another. If one hurts, then you all hurt, and if one is blessed, then you all are blessed.
You must move toward the direction I am leading you as a unit, and I am Captain in charge. You are a troop of soldiers, and your leaders you must follow their direction. You must love and trust one another and trust Me that I will lead and guide you into all truth.
Yes, this is the end of all times, and I am readying you for battle much larger than you have ever expected. Take advantage of every moment that you are free to gather together unhindered by outer forces. Take advantage of every moment that you are free to partake of My word. Eat it and partake of it like it would be your last meal. For you must have it hidden in your heart so that you can stand strong against the evil one.
I love you, My people, but you must remain sober, diligent, trustworthy, and faithful servants. You must spend your time wisely preparing. You must be ready! In order to see Me move in signs, wonders, and miracles pulling down strongholds over the land, you must be the vessel that I am able to move through.
For surely you will go from glory to glory for I am faithful to complete the good work that I have begun in you. I would not bring you this far to leave you, but you must cooperate with Me. For surely this is the hour for war. It is My battle, but I must be able to use you as the vessel I will move through!
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.
