There comes a time when the act of obedience to the LORD’s Voice will bring forth a tremendous amount of fruit.
There are also times when the act of obedience seems to amount to nothing.
But in the realm of the Holy of Holies, The LORD is watching whether you will obey or not, there is a tremendous team of angels just waiting for their turn to burst forth into holy praise for the direction the LORD gave you to follow through on.
You may have felt so down that the obedience you had been putting forth was such a long time ago.
There will be those days when you even wonder how you could put one foot in front of the other in obedience to the LORD’s Voice.
But the LORD is that Spirit, and where the Spirit of the LORD is, there is freedom, there is liberty.
The same power that raised up Jesus Christ from the dead abides in you.
And the Spirit of the LORD is raising you up out of the mirey pit, out of your lack of self worth, out of your reaction to pain, out of your doubt, out of your low self esteem, out of your lack of confidence, out of your perception of others’ thoughts of you.
How is He doing this?
“It is not by might nor by power, but by My Spirit,” says the LORD.
He has given you His Word that says,
“Is not My Word like fire; Is not My Word like the mighty hammer that smashes the rocks?
Have you not seen? Have you not heard that the LORD, the Maker of Heaven and Earth neither grows weary, nor does He faint?
But they who wait upon the LORD shall renew their strength. They shall mount up with wings like the eagle. They shall run and not be weary. They shall walk and not faint.”
“The Word I AM giving you right now is life giving Spirit and, I have seen your ways and I will heal you,” says the LORD,
“I am setting you into the cleft of the rock where you will begin to see again and know that the river of My Presence is carrying you along, like when I send forth My Word to bring to pass your obedience to My Prophetic Voice.
For the testimony of Jesus is the Spirit of Prophecy,” says the LORD.
The anointing will not leave the obedient.
