I am for you, and you are covered. You are surrounded by my love.
If you could use comfort from your Heavenly Father, keep reading because this will bless you. On Thursday I was leading this months day nine (9) of Consecrate Prayer & Fasting 2023, the word of the Lord came to me. God spoke within my spirit in such a loving fatherly tone and had me prophesy a corporate message to those participating. I want to share that word with you.
Typically when I receive prophetic messages, they come via spontaneous thoughts, knowing, dreams, or seeing. But yesterday, I heard the Lord so strong in the most comforting fatherly voice say, my child, I love you, and tell my children I love them.
Then this prophetic word began to flow, and I heard the Father say, tell my children this word.
"I am for you. Who can be against you? God says I don't care who's against you or what's against you, whether it be people on the job, like your boss, people in the ministry or church, people in the marketplace or family, parents, relatives, or siblings. God said I don't care who is against you because I am for you.
And because I am for you, you are covered. You are surrounded by my love. Never feel as though you are alone. Even when you are physically alone, you are not alone. YOU ARE NOT ALONE; LO(behold look & see) I am with you, even in the darkest seasons. Even when you feel like things are not changing or moving, or you feel stuck, you are not stuck. I am working some things out. While I am working things out on the back end that you can't see, let your posture be a posture of prayer. Let your posture be a posture of worship.
Know that I have not left you. You may not have the companionship that you desire. You maynot have the friendships that you desire. You may not have the community that you desire. Even though you may be in a community, you sometimes may struggle with loneliness, But know that I am near to you and the one protecting you.
I love you. I love you, and I care for you. Every flaw that you have, I am walking you through and taking you through it, not to hurt you but to make you better. When I show you another thing that I desire to equip you with to fix about yourself, do not have the thoughts like "Oh my God, I can't ever get it right, or I am this horrible person." The Lord says no, you are going through your sanctification process, and I am making you. But even in the making, I love you." - Prophetic Word 3/9/23
The Lord wants His people to understand the importance of knowing His love. I don't think we can fully grasp the depths of God's love for us. But I also know that sometimes we need to be reminded that God will be with us every step of the way. He will never leave us. Be encouraged and take a look at what He says in the book of Isaiah, Chapter 43.
"......Don't be afraid, I've redeemed you. I've called your name. You're mine. When you're in over your head, I'll be there with you. When you're in rough waters, you will not go down. When you're between a rock and a hard place, it won't be a dead end—Because I am God, your personal God, The Holy of Israel, your Savior. I paid a huge price for you: all of Egypt, with rich Cush and Seba thrown in! That's how much you mean to me! That's how much I love you!..........." (Isiaha 43:1-4a MSG)
One thing I have realized about the Lord is this. He has no issues expressing Himself. He is not short on words. Throughout the scriptures, He tells us how He feels about us. God reminds us not to fear so many times. He affirms us by letting us know He is with us because we are His. Yes, YOU, if you have acknowledged Jesus as your LORD and Savior, YOU belong to Him.
Imagine sitting in a crowd of billions of people, yet the LORD has called your name out of that crowd. He loves you so much that He would call you by your name out of the crowd. Isn't that special? God has called you by name. Why? Because you are His, and He is with you. The Lord wants His people to understand the importance of knowing His love.
Even while in prayer yesterday monring the Lord showed me a vision of a little child and a father encouraging and edifying the child. I will be sharing more about this vision soon. So make sure to stay tuned for part 2 of this prophetic word.
Do not let the circumstances of life rob you of knowing that you are surrounded by the Father's love. God's love surrounds you.
Say this prayer today: Father, allow me to come into the knowledge of your love. Allow me to embrace your love. Thank you, God, for reassuring me today that you are with me no matter what I m going through. Let me find comfort in your written word that says you will never leave or forsake me. Today I choose to come out of agreement with negative thoughts that tell me that I am fighting my battles alone. Lord, help me be like you by expressing my love to those around me. Father, I embrace your love, and I also will give your love in Jesus' name; I pray, Amen!
