“Remember the things I’ve spoken to you in the past; the promises I’ve made. They are still alive and active beyond the reach of natural circumstances to dictate what can or cannot happen. My plans and purposes plunge deep into the supernatural, transcending what you can see with your natural eyes. Don’t be discouraged by people around you (and even your own thoughts) saying that what you’re hopefully expecting is irrational. By the measure of the world it is but by the scales of my kingdom nothing is impossible.
“I am still planting seeds into the rich soil of your heart and calling forth LIFE. I’m still the fulfiller of all your dreams and the answer for the passions of your heart. Great things are being delivered that are even more abundant than you could ever think to ask for or imagine.”
Now to Him who is able to [carry out His purpose and] do superabundantly more than all that we dare ask or think [infinitely beyond our greatest prayers, hopes, or dreams], according to His power that is at work within us, to Him be the glory in the church and in Christ Jesus throughout all generations forever and ever. Amen. – Ephesians 3:20-21
“I’m still the one who brings beauty from piles of ashes; who resurrects the things that seem to have no life left. But nothing can lie still that I have called to stand. Nothing can stay dead that I have commanded to live; to inhale my very breath. I don’t operate according to the rules of the natural world around you. No, I work with a different set that turns it all upside down.
“I hear the cries of your heart; the passionate pleas for breakthrough and help. They are not lost in the blowing wind; the raging noise that seems to consume you. Every single desperate shout has reached my ears and I have felt them as they drop into my hand.”
You keep track of all my sorrows. You have collected all my tears in your bottle. You have recorded each one in your book. – Psalm 56:8
“I’ll mend your heart if you hold it out to me, if you give me access. I will fortify your resolve to trust and solidify your hope in me as we walk through this season and then the one to come. My love will hold you tight as mountains shift, change, and fall. We will advance with strong steps into the plans and purposes I’ve laid out for you.
“Many things pass away – the temporary things – but there will be no end to my government. It is forever increasing. So don’t let fear hold you back from what I’ve called you to. Don’t allow terror of natural circumstances to kill dreams I’m unfolding in your life. Continue to boldly step forward and I will make sure there is solid ground under your feet.”
Taste and see that the LORD is good; blessed is the one who takes refuge in him. – Psalm 34:8
“HOPE-HOPE-HOPE. Can you feel it? Can you taste it? It’s not far from you and I’m removing the veil. I am destroying the scales that have been placed over your eyes, the same ones that have caused many to search for hope where none can be found. Lift your eyes to my mountain and I will fill you to overflowing.”
