“Martha,” Jesus said, “ You don’t have to wait until then. I am the Resurrection, and I am Life Eternal. Anyone who clings to me in faith, even though he dies, will live forever.” - John 11:25 TPT
This is where everything began. I know that our God, our Father in heaven would not rest, would not be satisfied until all of His children return home. He will just keep reaching out to everyone while looking to the horizon, eagerly waiting for His children to come home to be embraced, restored, loved and celebrated.
This art piece came from a deep conversation between Jeremiah and the Holy Spirit. In His loving kindness, He revealed Himself in a new and personal way to the artist. "You are gentle and You are always with me. You are soft but also powerful. You light up my whole world."
Rise up Intercessors, and stand in the gap!
Song of Songs 2:10-12 . “The one I love calls to me: Arise, my dearest. Hurry, my darling. Come away with me...The season has changed, the bondage of your barren winter has ended, and the season of hiding is over and gone. The rains have soaked the earth and left it bright with blossoming flowers. . The season for singing and pruning the vines has arrived. I hear the cooing of doves in our land, filling the air with songs to awaken you and guide you forth.”
In Psalms, God has declared “be still and know that I am God”. . As the storm surrounds you, trust that Jesus is in you, release a shout of praise for who He is, and just let Jesus tell the storm to “be still and know that [He] is God.” . Take courage in God and in your identity, experience “He who hold the stars [in your lives], calls them each by name.” The storm comes to block your sight of the stars—the promises, goodness of God—quiet the storm so that your eyes can gaze into eternity.
"Like the Bride waiting for her Groom / We'll be a church ready for You...Even so, come / Lord Jesus, come" . Revelation 22:17 TPT - “Come,”[a] says the Holy Spirit and the Bride in divine duet. Let everyone who hears this duet join them in saying, “Come.” Let everyone gripped with spiritual thirst say, “Come.” And let everyone who craves the gift of living water[b] come and drink it freely. “It is my gift to you! Come.”
Bless anyone who needs a breakthrough in the name of Jesus, take courage and trust in the goodness of God, confront your fear, and stump over its head!
Jesus said to them, "IF any of you has a sheep and it falls into a pit on the Sabbath, will you not take hold of it and lift it out? How much more valuable is a person than a sheep! (Mat 12) The gentle loving hand of the LORD is always there waiting. No matter how deep you have fallen, and how unreachable you are, even when you feel everything is impossible and hopeless, God would not let you go, His love can always reach you and pull you out of the pit.
I saw a vision of a sail boat set in water while being protected in the hands of God. Instead of seeing His hands constantly covering the boat, He blew a gentle breeze into the sails, and set the boat in motion. God is not sacred of us heading into storms, in fact, He is with us, and equipped us with His love, salvation and truth. We are like a sail boats carrying God’s divine peace and good news, sailing to the harbor to deliver them to people in need.
Song of Songs 8:7 . "Rivers of pain and persecution will never extinguish this flame. Endless floods will be unable to quench this raging fire that burns within you. Everything will be consumed. It will stop at nothing as you yield everything to this furious fire until it won’t even seem to you like a sacrifice anymore."
The glory of God’s redemption and His love is well displayed. He did not want us to focus only on the suffering Jesus had to experience on the cross but to be encouraged to actively seek after Him and be empowered by His resurrection.
This is the left hand of Jesus with His blood dripping down, writing in the ground the word “forgiven”. A woman was caught in the act of adultery and brought her before Jesus. In the end, Jesus let her and said: “neither do I condemn you, go now and leave your life of sin.” Jesus is not here to rewrite the law but to complete it. Because of the blood of Jesus, we are free and strengthened to walk away from sin.
