No more than flies at a picnic

You don't need to figure everything out or worry that you don't understand what I am doing.

A child only needs to know his daddy loves him and will care for him. There are harsh realities I will handle for you and with you. You don't need to fear demonic attacks, I am your Daddy, don't even focus on them because I am defending you.

You are not hurt. Though the devil is growling at you and telling you that you are defenceless you haven't been hurt yet, so pay him no attention. Keep your focus on Me and don't be frightened or anxious. There is nothing he can do but talk, I have all the power and I have already spoken.

You are My witness to a lost and dying world. Your confidence in Me then My deliverance of you will demonstrate My faithfulness.

Just move right on, the attacks are nothing more than flies at a picnic.

I am leading, change comes in an instant

I am leading you and holding you in the palm of My hand. I hear your prayers and I am answering. Confess my answer before you see it; encourage yourself with your confession of My answer before you see it.

My blood covers even you - you are not excluded. These are hard timesbut I am sustaining you with My Spirit. You shall have fellowship with My faithful. As with the connection you felt with S. H. when it happens it shall be quick.

There is refreshment for you, be faithful and trust. I change things in an instant.

Your children are My children

Your children are not in your hands and should not be your primary focus, I should be your primary focus. These are My children - I loaned them to you to enjoy and love, but never forget they are Mine.

I have good plans for each of them, but they are My plans and My ways of leading them for their own particular calling. You are letting your own desires cloud the fact that I call on My Own timetable and for My Own purposes.

I put that love and faithfulness for your children in you and it is a good thing, but even good things must be laid on My altar. You will not be bereaved of your children, you will not be disappointed. You must trust that I love them as I love you and will pick them up when they cry.

You put in them the knowledge, they can cry to me, they shall cry out to Me and I shall hear and pick them up. Trust Me to do that.

My voice and no backup plan

My sheep hear My voice. You know My voice because I care for you, and in the midst of many voices, all calling for your attention, you can hear Mine - it's the one that brings peace to your soul.

It doesn't matter what the other voices say, I am the Lord. The voice of worry, self pity, lust, greed, selfishness have no power to work. I, alone, have the power within Myself to keep and defend you. Trust My hand, trust My voice, have no backup plan - you don't need one, lean completely on Me.

Simple faith is all I require.

Yours is not to know the big picture but to know the Big God who controls the big picture. You will hear my voice and you will recognize it and you will follow.

It will be good.

My Call to St. Cuthbert Episcopal

You are getting direction better than dreams, you hear my Spirit in your heart and mind. Why try to go back to what was at best confusing when you can hear me through my Holy Spirit?

Paul on a missionary journey with his ministry blocked didn't know which way to go had a dream of a Macedonian calling for help. You, too, are on a missionary journey and have been seeking where but the pastor, himself, comes to you and asks for help, not in a dream but in person; go that direction like Paul went to Macedonia not knowing the future but knowing I am there. I'll not ask anything of you that I shall not provide. What do you care of buildings and pageantry, follow Me and let happen what I do. Take Acts 16:9-10 as confirmation of your decision.

See how I have led you in the past? I stir your heart then redirect you, channeling you to the right way.

I stirred you to have faith to buy a helicopter for a missionary then I asked you to simply pay for a missionary's way to the field, and it satisfied that desire. I stirred you to return to the pastorate then gave you a message for a new church founder to base his ministry on, and it satisfied that desire. So I stirred you to receive messages from me in dreams and visions, then you the life experiences others only dream of. Isn't flesh and blood better than a dream?

Don't worry about the battle or of winning and loosing, focus on following Me. Anything on this earth you "win" is only temporary and anything on earth you "lose" or have taken away is meaningless. You said you wanted to see the unseen, well, this is the way to do that. Set your pride on me not your physique. Set your sense of victory on Me not the theological battles won/lost or the buildings kept. I will provide fellowship for you in Me and with those who are alive in Me.

You shall fish in waters where they are hungry and want my word; don't be discouraged at resistance.

Concerning your family's response, I shall make things clear as you move forward. Don't push, lead.

Enoch, a prototype for the believer

And Enoch walked with God ... And all the days of Enoch were three hundred sixty and five years: And Enoch walked with God: and he was not; for God took him. - Genesis 5:22a, 23, and 24 (KVJ)
Enoch was a prototype of the believer. Enoch walked with God, and God took him to heaven, just like that; no death, no suffering, just straight to heaven.
By faith Enoch was translated that he should not see death; and was not found, because God had translated him: for before his translation he had this testimony, that he pleased God. - Hebrews 11:5 (KJV)
We, too, walk with God. Being in Christ we know, and have the inward testimony, God is pleased with us and He takes us, just like that into Christ's Kingdom; no waiting until we die, straight into the Heavenlies to be seated with Jesus
Giving thanks unto the Father, which hath made us meet to be partakers of the inheritance of the saints in light: Who hath delivered us from the power of darkness, and hath translated us into the kingdom of his dear Son: - Colossians 1:12-13 (KJV)

A Word for our Friend S.L.

You are my tender lamb, you always have been.

Even now, through the uncertainty I am caring for you. The fear is natural and part of being tender. I am doing something that must be done, but know I am actively keeping you.

You will not for some time be able to see what I am doing so you are going to have to trust that even now I am at work. Choose to put your fear down and just don't pick it up. Commit yourself wholly and completely unto me, choose to trust My provision and defending of you against the ravages off life.

I shall manifest Myself to you in ways you always wanted but couldn't achieve and you shall see answers to your prayers for your boys you have been longing for. I shall be with you where you are and only when the time is right take you to be with me where I am.

We are going to go for a walk, you and Me, and I will be all you need and it shall be good.

Overwhelming sense of something about to happen, good

I have an overriding feeling / sensing something is about to break open in ministry. I have a basic, deep down, feeling God is about to move in a special way. In Sunday school, today, the lesson was how to visualize Jesus. I felt God telling me this was an answer to my request and that I shall learn how to better visualize Jesus.

My mind is whirring over what God will do and I am choosing to be patient to wait and see, but I have an overall feeling of something positive I just can't put my finger on; some positive change is about to occur.

Speaking is the easy part; Maturity is difficult

Maturity is a difficult process, I wish it could be different. Anointing and speaking is easy, even a donkey can do that! I need men who are more than donkeys, men who are stable and mature, who won't get shaken when they don't see what they want; men who will stand firm when they don't get what they want. That only comes through trial and over time.

I have not forgotten you or overlooked you, instead I am growing you. Everyone wants the anointing, but few want the discipline. I am God, and I don't forget; and I haven't changed My mind. When you signed on in My team you agreed to do things My way. Look at each day with a sense of adventure, don't be afraid I will drop you. When the time is right you will be the right person for the tasks, but I will be the One in control. Be content to be Mine and obey without seeing or controlling the big picture.

There is much pressure on my ministers, those who speak and minister for Me. The weight of the ministry is so heavy that any flaw can cause ruin - and everyone has flaws. Flaws are covered by the blood but under intense pressure they crack and the ministry is ruined.

I see the flaws and I know how to fortify around them. Those of Mine who are patient and obedient will have their flaws mended, tested, and repaired.

Take the ministry opportunities I provide but don't push into areas you are not prepared for, let Me open the doors. Don't set your heart on the ministry set it on Me. Don't live for the ministry live for Me. Don't be angry at the ones who have cracked, pray for them. I can put broken hearts and vessels back together if I get all the pieces.
