You were there through the raging waters! You were there through the storm. You were there when I couldn’t feel your presence. You were there all the time!
I have heard that when you feel God’s presence the least is when He is doing the greatest work in you drawing you near. For it isn’t on the mountain top that you grow the strongest, but it is in the valley. For that is where He is drawing you so you will come up higher in Him.
For this is the day of the great falling away where many are comfortable in their own independence, but I say to you this day to thank The Lord for your hardships for they keep you in a constant place of desperation for Me and My presence.
Ask of Me and I will give you the land for I have given you dominion over the land. For if you are My child then all My promises to Abraham are also yours. All the land that you tread upon is yours if you claim it for My kingdom purposes.
So I call you to My side this day to encourage you and to strengthen you and to tell you that I love you. Resume your responsibility of being a faithful servant and all that the world seeks after will naturally be yours for just being a joint heir with Me.
Do not do what the heathen does by making their own self their god. They constantly make their own plans without ever consulting Me in them. And when they get into a jam, they cry out to Me, but I know their heart that they don’t love Me and are only using Me as a fire escape, but because I love them I don’t always answer.
I am a loving Father. And I chastise all of My true sons. I will not always pull you out of your troubles until you return to me, and I know what it will take. For yes, I will take you through the purging of My fire to purify you that you will be like fine gold.
So trust Me, My children that when you go through My fire, it will not burn you but it will only show you the faithfulness of My love.

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.
