A Word concerning The Season of Tradition.
“I want you to step back and observe what you are all doing.
I want you to even listen to what you have confessed as late. I desire to pour out My Glory upon a prepared people who do not allow the distractions of the world and of the traditions of man to come between the communion and fellowship of Me with My chosen ones.
Come unto Me with fasting and prayer and seek My face concerning what you are doing at present. If what you are doing is keeping you too busy or tripped up with that of the natural, then what you are doing is not of Me.
I desire a people who have the desire that was of Mary who came and knelt at My feet only to be close enough to listen to all I had to say. She could not see how that which Martha was doing could be of any edification to Me.
If you truly examine your heart and desire in this season of time, you will see that most of what you are doing is catering to the flesh in how you will minister to others.
All the preparations going forth in this season of time is only distracting My People from truly coming together and coming before Me.
I desire a people to cast off all the distractions caused by the evil one. I desire to have a people who long to draw together and before Me with the sole purpose to minister unto Me.
For you say that coming up is a celebration of the birth of My Son. Then why are you not seeking Me as how I would have you to minister unto Him?
Humble yourselves before Me, and I will lift you up. Cry out to Me for grace and truth, and I will fill you to overflowing. If you seek Me first and My righteousness, all these things will be added unto you, even that which the world seeks after.
Put Me first, and I will bless your finances and restore healing to you. I will draw you into the throne room of My grace and bless you with that which you long for. I will reveal to you secrets which you long to hear.
Yes, I will give you fresh insight into which the enemy has had you bound. I will give you strategies to be able to stand and pull down the strongholds of the enemy.
These are perilous times and time is too important. Do not allow the enemy to get you caught off guard where he will try to snare you with empty vain things…. things that only distract you and cater only to your flesh.
This is a time for new beginnings. This is a time where I will bless you with that which you have never experienced.
You think the fulfillment you receive these times is of Me, but it is nothing compared to the blessings I will pour out upon you.
If you will only seek My face and be open and willing to die to your ways, even that which is of tradition. Yes, I want to set you free and lead you into the true reality, which is only of Me.
Seek My face in the quiet of the night. Bow before Me in humility, and I will give you the fruit of the land.”

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.
