Rise up and prepare for the LORD thy God is with you. Awake from your slumber and count the cost.
This is the day I will be examining the hearts of My people to see if they are ready to go to war and fight for what is theirs. I will also see if they will lay dormant and allow the enemy to have their inheritance, which he is after.
This is the day to count the cost. When you lose all for My Kingdom, you gain all that My kingdom offers. I give you My joy, which gives you great strength. I give you My love that conquers all things, and I give you peace that passes all understanding.
This is the day to count the cost……….. your life for My life. I want to live My life through you this day. Step aside and see what I will do through you. I have called you to join together to do greater works. I can reach the multitudes through you. Yes, I can reach the lost and the broken hearted. I can heal the sick and set the captives free.
I love you, My people, and I raise you up as great warriors of My love. My love is the strongest weapon that you have.
All I want you to do is to love Me and respect My calling upon your life. Bow down and worship Me in the secret place. Bask in My presence, and I will strengthen you. I will give you My wisdom as you go out and be My ambassadors. This is the time and the hour that I AM calling you.
Rekindle the flame you once had for Me. Stir your hearts in My word. Love My will and My words I give to you. Hide them in your heart. Prepare now while you have the time while it is still day.
Do not waste it over complacency and busyness. Be cautious that the enemy doesn’t rob you of what is precious. Set your priorities right. Know what is of most importance and cast off the vain. Be careful that others don’t offend you. I call you to love one another and to allow My light to shine through.
Know this day that I AM for you and not against you. No matter what struggles you face I give you My victory to overcome. No matter what you have done in the past I will not let it count against you if you truly repent and make yourself clean by the power of My blood.
If you asked for My forgiveness, I remember no more any sin that you have committed.
Guard what is rightfully yours. I promised you divine health and that you would prosper in every area of your life. Why settle for less than the best when I gave My life for you? When you received Me as your LORD and Savior, you also received all that the Father gave Me.
I died that you would have My authority over all the power of the enemy, that you would fear no evil, and that you would be able to live the abundant life.
I AM your Captain. I love you and I give you My armor and weapons of war. Use wisely the power that I have given you.
Great authority comes only through submission and humility to My perfect will. I call you to march out not looking back at what you are leaving behind. All is worthless compared to what I have in store for you.
You will never regret taking Me as your all in all. There is no life outside of Me.
Yes, this is the time to rise up and count the cost.

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.
