Fear of failure?

Posted by restoringlifefoundation on September 12, 2012 at 5:20 AM Comments comments (0)

Fear of failure will lead to your demise if you don’t take stock of the larger picture.  I have made you for a purpose and a destiny, I have made you to accomplish much, if you don’t trust in My voice or My direction you will continually halt between two positions you will continually halt between two decisions. 


Don’t look to the left or the right but lookup. Stay focussed on that which is set before you the risen Lord seated far above every principality and power. The ascended Christ who has already defeated failure and holds it bound in the prison of victory. What you hear are his (failures) screams and shouts for attention, whenever you fear what he might do,  you deny what I have already done.   I have overcome the world and because I AM in you, you too share in this victory. 

 

Beloved trust in My love not the uncertainty concerning tomorrow. You are not in this battle or this war alone. I AM your King I have set aside everything that is needed on the earth for your victory.  Be as Abraham, even as he was laying his future (in Isaac) on the altar, he trusted Me knowing that if I say something it must come to pass. Keep your eyes fixed on Me therefore.  I AM the Author and Finisher of your faith.

 

Beloved's responce

Posted by restoringlifefoundation on August 23, 2012 at 4:40 AM Comments comments (0)

Beloved thats what you are because I love you. You were hand picked for Me by My Father. He loved you intensely even before you were born such that He fashioned you in love. He knew the path you would have to walk to be prepared for Me. He knew the assaults that My enemy would attack you with. He gave you enough grace and character to enable you to come through, that way you would be ready when I came for you.


Father loved you before you even were and although you couldn't see us, you were never left alone. From the day of your conception I stationed powerful angels to guard you and we rejoiced when you were safely delivered on the earth. We waited patiently for your growth and development. We waited until that moment you were old enough to make a choice for yourself. When you invited Me to be yours the whole of heaven had a party where we danced and began preparing for the moment you would join Me.


We all watch over you with such joy and with wonder employing our love and power on your behalf. You are bone of my bone and flesh of my flesh, created and fashioned a new creation in Me. How I long for you to spend much time with Me, preparing you to meet each day, longing that you would desire My presence as I desire yours.


I waited for you again this morning with love gifts of peace and faith the very things I knew you would need today but you didn't come. So please My love don't forget Me nor break My heart by choosing those things that will never satisfy you nor heal your wounds. The battle is fierce and My enemy knows that you are My beloved he knows that to hurt Me at you arrows must flow. So please My beloved, My precious and My darling come let Me fill you daily with My eternal love.



Drink from My Well

Posted by restoringlifefoundation on August 13, 2012 at 5:35 PM Comments comments (0)

How long will you rely on your own strength and wisdom and not come to me for assistance nor come to me for help. I AM your Ezer I AM your strong tower and desire that you begin to move from that place of fear and hiding beneath those fig leaves. I asked Adam where are you not because My wisdom could not fathom his whereabouts but because he did not see them. So I stand at your door and knock asking you today "where are you?". Why are you hiding? I have come to see you but have you become afraid of my presence that you run from me, or have you become so wise in your own sight that you no longer need Me?


Turn back in repentance before it is too late, turn back with your flesh and throw out that stone that is building within you. The enemy has risen up against you wanting to sift you, but I AM calling you back to that place of your first love. Seek Me and My Kingdom. I have already stored up everything for My beloveds that they need, if only they would drink from My well and be satisfied. Stop building your own kingdom and digging your own wells.


Drink from my abundant living water which I desire to pour out for you. Drink and be satisfied, drink and be refreshed. Let My water flow deep let it refresh and supply everything you have been searching for. Come to Me let Me satisfy you, many false and defiled alternatives are out there but only My water will answer every question and touch  every pain. Come My Beloved come. For the waters are good. Come and never thirst again.

How long will I have to long for you, look for you, hope for you? How long will my heart ache at the sound of your name,  or the scent of your presence?  How long will I wait for you in our secret place, hoping to catch your passing aroma upon the air? How long Lord, will I lie and not sleep, or dream just to realise that in my reality you cannot be seen, or held or touched?


My heart is broken for your presence, my feet lame. I'm restless in the night, my night hours are filled with longings, and my day hours filled with tears. When will you come, how long will I have to wait for your embrace, and that place of comfort on your breast? To be held close and safe in your embrace, to be held as a lover holds his love, longing that dawn will not break their moment together. Longing that the stars will not break their formation and the moon will not disappear. Oh how I long for that night. That night where wrestling will cease and just the gentle embrace will enfold me. Where love will sing, and loins long no more, for a deeper love has penetrated to the heart of things. How I long for you to satisfy me with that love above all loves that music will rise up from within us that celebrates everything that Father has given us.


Oh Lord my King and my Master come.

 

 

 

Get Ready

I am known by you, I am not a stranger.  Prepare yourself to hear My word, prepare your heart for truth. In a little while it will be over, the waiting will be no more. Your life has been a battle, a preparation for what is ahead. Know that you have been noticed, know that you have been seen. Don't loose hope or think its time to throw in the towel. The time is now the battle is hot, but I Myself will uphold your arm in this battle. 


Though you are weary and at times it seems that there is nothing left to redeem. I bring dead things and give them life, I pour water in the desert lands. You are that flower that sprouts even when everything seems barren. You are the well that I want to use to refresh many. Be filled and refreshed by my spirit, I am getting ready to use you for that purpose that you were created for.


 Behold that new thing that I promised is upon you, the season of the former and latter rain. Prepare to be refreshed, prepare to be fed. Then you will be ready to be poured out for many. For your appointed season to birth is upon you. Expect the labour pains, expect to loose some thing's that you thought were connecting you to Me to be cut free. You must die to the former life and see that as you enter this new season that this new birth is even greater than the former. You are about to leave that dark place that you were hidden in, your place of growth, your place of development. Those voices that you heard will begin to make sense, they spoke to you, now you will begin to see and connect voices to people. People connected to your new season. As you are birthed into this new beginning you too will birth, great things.


 The darkness of your current situation will give way to the light of the new. Don't be a breech birth trust me, I will be at your birth and grow you up, for the next phase in your life. Let me cradle you, challenge you, grow in wisdom and stature in favour with Me and man. You are born for such a time as this, this is your season. The light is coming get ready.

Precious one - You have been set apart as holy

Posted by restoringlifefoundation on June 13, 2012 at 4:50 AM Comments comments (0)


Precious one why do you doubt My love for you.  Why do you wonder so much about your future and not realise that I have gone ahead of you.  Even as I said I love Jacob and hate Esau so I am able to decide what I created for honour and what I created as a common thing. You are a vessel of honour but that means you must be treated as such by yourself and those you come into contact with.  Do not use yourself as if you are common. You have been set apart as holy.


 

 Remember that as you interact with others. You speak for Me, you represent Me.  Don't look to your own wisdom but trust in Me to know right from wrong, up from down left from right.   Listen for My voice, discern what I am in and what I am not in. Flee from those things that separate you from Me or cause Me to be small in your sight.   Know that you are to "walk in the Spirit" in that way the flesh won't be fed but will be starved.  An appetite not fed will die. Look to the Hills from where I come with your help. Rise up early like Jesus before you and give Me your day, that is the only way to survive, to live the set apart life. Don't lean on your own understanding but trust my judgement I am never wrong.  Just search my word, ask Paul, John, David, Moses or Abraham. I AM never wrong. Trust Me and it will go well with you. Trust Me.

 


The Journey and the Dream

Posted by restoringlifefoundation on April 30, 2012 at 9:00 AM Comments comments (0)

When God gave Joseph his dream he showed him the end of what it would be, not the path he would have to travel to get there (Genesis 37:5-10).  In his visions of the night there was no separation from his father, abuse by his brothers (Genesis 37:11-36). Neither was there bondage, accusations, (Genesis 39:1-23) imprisonment nor being forgotten by those he had helped (Genesis 40:1-23) . However every detail of his journey was necessary to prepare him for his end. Likewise every step in your journey has been ordained, every step is necessary as a child of God (Psalm 37:23). His plans are to prosper you (Jeremiah 29:11). First you must go through the trouble, first you must be battered, rejected, abandoned until there is nothing left but that sweet spirit radiating from the depths within you. Then and only then will you be ready to walk in your calling.




Look to the future to see who you must be to command that which God has ordained that you must, and flinch not under the preparation. Know that the greater the vision for your future the greater the preparation for the task.

Do you want - VICTORY?

Posted by restoringlifefoundation on February 20, 2012 at 6:45 AM Comments comments (0)

But thanks be to God, who gives us the victory through our Lord Jesus Christ.

1 Corinthians 15:57


 

In our quiet time last week, when my youngest son was waiting on the LORD he received the word "Victory".  I began to question him about it and asked him to seek God for what aspect of victory He wanted to speak to him about and to write it in his journal. I did the same the following is what I received whilst waiting (my reflective thoughts in black):


Victory is mine says the LORD, I have already won that battle,(whatever your that is God has won it) in Me you too are victorious.  The only defeats you have in life are the ones you surrender too, the ones you relinquish your position and power too (to what are you surrendering your power?).  I AM the Overcomer, my blood did it all. Join your testimony to my grace and watch demons flee from you.  Join your testimony to Me for your victory (Revelation 12:11). You are My child, I love you, from out of you will flow rivers of living water (John 7:38 ); if you will but trust in My victories in your life.

Let this water flow into the lives of those around you (Isaiah 44:3). Let this water flow into the parched and dry ground, then watch for life to flow into the barrenness, watch My life be victorious and swallow up the death.  Apply My victory to any situation in life and watch life overcome death, love overpower hate, prosperity overpower poverty, generosity overpower stinginess. Watch, walk, live in My victory, and see the Kingdom of God established in the earth. See the goodness of God established in the earth. See Heaven win, see the Victory. Hallelujah! Amen.”

 

I challenge you to seek God for your victory in 2012,victory over barrenness in your life (family, work, relationships, finances, health; where ever it is He has promised living water, let His Spirit flow, let His abundance flow, and let His victory  be seen  in your life, will you?


Plans for 2012?

Posted by restoringlifefoundation on January 2, 2012 at 6:05 PM Comments comments (0)

 

Within my church during 2011 the scripture focus had been to “Pursue”, “Overtake” and “Recover All”, taken from 1 Samuel 30, my personal focus was on seeking wisdom from God taken from James 1:5 Amplified Bible (AMP) If any of you is deficient in wisdom, let him ask of the giving God [Who gives] to everyone liberally and ungrudgingly, without reproaching or faultfinding, and it will be given him.

 

When I prayed for wisdom at the beginning of 2011 l did not expect it to come clothed the way it did. I was looking for some deep meaningful insight into the complexities of life or some new great invention. I expected God to give me a nugget or nuggets of wisdom that would break the glass ceiling I felt was holding me back from progressing at the rate that I desired in  my calling and destiny. God has been faithful to me and has revealed to me things particularly about myself that I was not aware of.  This has been more than wisdom to me. 

The wisdom that I have received was at times painful, but in each and every way necessary. As I continue to pray from an awakened place, I seek the Lord now for continued wisdom and grace to handle what has been revealed and  especially  for divine insight and  truth about my life, relationships, ministry and future.

  • As we have left 2011 behind and began 2012, what is God asking you to lay hold of and what is He asking you to let go?
  • What lessons have you learnt about yourself, God and others?  What are you going to do differently in 2012 as a result of those lessons?
  • What internal and external changes have occurred during 2011 that you need to ensure don’t go unnoticed but the lessons learned and  fully consolidated into your life?
  •  What are you doing to maintain the ground you've taken in 2011 and what will you do to ensure that you take further ground in 2012? 
  • Can you identify what the Lord has done for you in 2011, will you make sometime to thank Him and ask Him to envision you for 2012.

 

2012 can be your best year yet, if you “Trust in the LORD with all your heart; do not depend on your own understanding. Seek His will in all you do, and He will show you which path to take ( Proverbs 3:5-6).  My desire for you is this -  that you will know Christ the risen saviour in a deeper more authentic way during 2012.  That like Peter you will step outside the boat looking to Christ “The LORD who will work out his plans for your life (Psalm 138:8 ). Being confident of this, that he who began a good work in you will carry it on to completion until the day of Christ Jesus (Philippians 1:6).


To all our  family, friends, clients and colleagues God Bless you in 2012
