An Encouraging Word

Dear Believers, I came across this word given to me from the Lord  on July 1, 1992. I truly needed it at that time, and as I reread it, I am still in need of it today. In fact, it is more relevant in my life right now. I am penning it in hopes that it will encourage you today. There have been times, my friends, when someone else has been given a word or prophecy and I have grabbed onto it and said, “Lord, that’s for me, too— I receive that.” So, if this message brings encouragement to you today, grab hold of it and say, “Lord, that’s for me, too—I receive that.”  The following is the word the Lord spoke to my heart on July 1, 1992:

This is my day. I have made it; rejoice and be glad in it. I saw that the moon and sun were made—the stars and the universe.

Is anything too hard for me? Did I not make you? Can I not set things in order? Am I not a God to be trusted? May I take your life and guide you through this? After all, are you (your household) not mine?

Take my hand, Barbara (Place your name here my friends.).  Let me minister my love to you. Let this be the beginning of your life. I know your heart—the things that concern you. You are my daughter (or son), made in my image—shall I not perfect the things that concern you? See the real me and you will see the real you. The real you is that part of you that belongs to me.

Feast from my table; it is there for you. What is your heart’s desire?

At the Last Supper, as Jesus dined with his disciples, he shared bread, which represented his body and wine which represented his blood with them. That last supper emphasized his broken body and his shed blood on that cross which would ushered in a new covenant. As believers, we now have a place at the Lord’s table—we are beneficiaries of that new covenant. So, feast at the Lord’s table. Grab a hold of his Word; stand on his promises.

Listen, God will even prepare a table for you in the presence of your enemies. (Psalms 23:5)

Be blessed.
