“Being confident (sure of, to rely on by inward certainty) of this very thing, that he which hath begun a good (useful and beneficial) work (labor, an act or a deed) in you will perform (accomplish it, finish it, bring it to a desirable end) it until the day of Jesus Christ,” Philippians 1:6.
“And we know that all (every, any, whatsoever, whosoever, the whole) things work together (to put forth power and thereby to assist) for good (useful and beneficial) to them that love God, (to them who are the called (appointed, divinely selected, those who are the saints of God) according to his purpose (a setting forth of a thing, putting God’s plan in view),” Romans 8:28.
Then He said look at Isaiah 1:19, it is all connected, all of the good, all of God starting His plan in you, and finishing it, and perfecting that plan is based on this.
Isaiah 1:19 says, “If (dependent on your cooperation, this is in fact your yieldedness, if you have given up, if you have rendered, if you have given to God what’s rightfully owed him, if you have relinquished the control to God) ye be willing (yield) and obedient, (hearken to His will, to hear with interest) ye shall eat the good of the land.”
“In this, I can be glorified,” says the LORD, “but what is needed is your attention to Me. I know the way. See, I have been there many times before for those who would yield to Me, they have experienced My glory, they know Me, in My glory, I mean the light in the dark, the fire that lights up the night, the cloud that leads during the day.
They have experienced My glory, because they yielded. Not many men have known My glory, for they have stepped in with their own understanding and circumvented My way.
But I say to you this morning, if you would yield, if you would be willing, I can do an awesome thing. You would be stunned and amazed by My glory and you will see that I AM God, I AM your Father, I AM your provider, I AM your way-maker, I AM your friend, I AM your counselor and I AM the lover of your soul.
There is nothing that you need that I have not already provided. All I need is a yielded heart, so that I can step into your life and be God. Understand, I will not make you [force you], that is why I have given you the will and that is why I say, IF you be willing.
I cannot make you My children. My desire is to be known in your life. My desire is to be glorified, that men might come and see who you really are, by the works and deeds that I have done in your life.
Many would begin to glorify Me because I have been lifted up in your life. If you want this, all it takes is your yieldedness. I AM not holding back anything, everything belongs to Me.
There is a Joshua and a Caleb generation. They will separate and pull away from the rest of the crowds, the ones who say, “There are giants in the land, and that we are not able to go up against these.”
Joshua and Caleb were of a different spirit and I say this morning, those who would have a different spirit who are saying, “Yes”.
They might not see clearly what I have planned, but they are saying yes to Me and because they are saying yes to Me, I have already made a way. Some call it a way of escape, but it is to bring you to your promise and that is what I did for Joshua and Caleb.
You are not too old, you are not beyond your years, you are not too young, you are not too smart or not too ignorant. I can do it, says the LORD, it is not based on your gender, it is not based on your color, it is not based on anything that man sees.
I can and will do it for those who say yes, and yield to My will. I AM about to do something magnificent in the lives of My Joshua and Caleb spirits, something that has not been recorded.
All generations have waited for this time to see the glory that would rest upon the Joshua and Caleb’s of this age. Watch and see says the LORD, you will be amazed too.
Some of you will want to get in, so you better get in now says the LORD. You better step by faith and move away from your feelings, and your thoughts, and your plans and your prescribed ways of doing it.
I AM greater, always greater bringing you to that high place. Just say yes, that is surrendering, just say yes. Do not stop to reason out what that means. You say, “What do I have to give up, what do I have to stop thinking about, what do I have to stop feeling, where do I have to stop going.”
Just say “Yes.” I will take care of all the rest, to those who yield.
