Feeling Overwhelmed or Downcast?

Are you feeling overwhelmed or downcast? Is the drama of those around you drowning out your own? Do you feel that the narrative of your life story is unfair and unheard? If you are anything like me, many voices; both good and bad are screaming for your attention. Is your worldview and system of belief causing you to interpret your reality through the lens of hopelessness? Sounds; well… kind of desperate! Are you listening? Because I have good news for you!

The entire revealed history of God’s love affair with his people has carefully and patiently waited for this moment in your life! This is the moment you are awakened to his message. The sum total of your life experiences has prepared you to receive his great news.

This may sound strange at first…but let it sink in, all the way from your mind to your heart. God loves you prophetically! Wow! What in the world does that mean or have to do with my present reality? It means that God wants to make his own thoughts about you known to you! Here are two examples among many…

17 God, your thoughts about me are priceless.
No one can possibly add them all up.
18 If I could count them,
they would be more than the grains of sand.
If I were to fall asleep counting and then wake up,
you would still be there with me. Psalm 139:17-18, NIRV

“11For I know the plans I have for you,” says the LORD. “They are plans for good and not for disaster, to give you a future and a hope.
12 In those days when you pray, I will listen.
13 If you look for me in earnest, you will find me when you seek me.
14 I will be found by you,” says the LORD. Jeremiah 29:11-14a, NLT

Armed with the assurance of God’s constant attention literally fixed on us, what will our response look like? We are invited to come boldly to Father’s Throne of Grace; throwing our entire history, present reality/needs, and future hopes, humbly into the Mercy and Love of Father. He resists the proud while overwhelming the humble with a daily baptism of his great love and all that it brings to our aide. Following is his (Prophetic Love) word to us at the start of each new day.

Today is the day of Salvation! Today, if you hear my voice of fresh revelation, dive heart-first into the oceans of my power and provision. I am bound by my own love to speak GOOD NEWS into your heart continuously.

“My word takes over the action; what I spoke to you in the incarnation,
My final Word through Jesus; radiating my image and likeness, powerfully impacts
Your whole being; body, soul and spirit are impacted by what He-Jesus speaks and it becomes a living and
Powerful influence in you, cutting like a doctor’s scalpel, sharper than a
Soldier’s sword, piercing to the deepest core of your human conscience, to the
Division of soul and spirit, ending the dominance of the sense realm of the
Soul and its neutralizing effect upon the human spirit; thus freeing the spirit
To be the ruling influence again in the thoughts and intentions of your heart”
(A paraphrased Mirror Word version of Hebrews 1:1-3 and 4:2)

Tuned in to the voice of hope!
