Lord is saying: Be free in my love. Be sure that I am your friend.
I am not condeming you. You have had to make tough decisions.
I am behind you and will see you through. I will work it through,
just like I always have. Therefore trust it all into my care and
play your part by walking with me, holding onto my promises. For
by my promises you guard your soul against the wiles of the enemy.
NOT JUST WHAT YOU SEE
.ITS ALSO WHAT YOU HEAR
he said, Go out and stand on the mount before the Lord.
And behold, the Lord passed by, and a great and strong wind tore
the mountains and broke in pieces the rocks before the Lord, but
the Lord was not in the wind. And after the wind an earthquake,
but the Lord was not in the earthquake. 12 And after the earthquake
a fire, but the Lord was not in the fire. And after the fire the

can easily be ignored. Joshua and
Caleb magnified God, they magnified the still small voice until
it became big in them and this is what we have to do. When you
get a magnifying glass and magnify an ant, it may be tiny but
through the glass it looks massive. God is already massive, but
we have to make him bigger in our thinking. I heard this yesterday,
"He who is big enough to make the universe, galaxies and
stars lives in me and you", isn't that amazing. When we make
God big in our thinking the giants shrink to theIr true size,....

HEARING THE PROMISE WITH FAITH
us therefore fear, lest, a promise being left us of entering into
his rest, any of you should seem to come short of it. For unto
us was the gospel preached, as well as unto them: but the word
preached did not profit them, not being mixed with faith in them
that heard it.Hebrews 4 1,2
ten had heard the promise that Joshua and Caleb had heard, But
it didn't profit them. Why? Because they didn't mix it with faith.
The recipe doesn't work if we only hear a promise, we have to
use another ingredient... faith!!
we hear a word from God, we need to take it into our heart and
believe it, guard it and keep it.That
good thing which was committed unto thee keep by the Holy Ghost
which dwelleth in us. 2 Timothy 1:14
and Caleb were the only two who didn't harden their hearts but
believed when Moses told them the good things God was going to
do for them. The rest hardened their hearts
. Believing is
a choice, a choice anyone can make, when faced with the option.
We can choose to harden our hearts against the promise we have
heard or soften them and let the seed be sown. You know the feeling...
someone comes to your door, selling you something. Most of the
time I have my heart closed and hard. I don't really want to know.
Thats fine for guarding us against being conned, but God cannot
lie,so let us be open and soft to His promises, receiving them
good prayer is "God give me a soft heart, to believe your
I know the thoughts that I think toward you, saith the LORD, thoughts
of peace, and not of evil, to give you an expected end. Jeremiah
has good plans for you. The thoughts He has towards you are countless,
like the grains of sand on the seashore, and all of them are good.
You have a bright future, a wonderful destiny in Jesus. Take that
word today and mix it with faith in your heart, hold it and nourish
it with great care, like you would a tiny seed, and it will surely
germinate, take root, grow and bear fruit.
in the Lord your God, so shall you be established. Believe His
prophets so shall you prosper. 2 Chronicles 20. 20
God has brought us out to bring us in.
