Beloved, has your heart been under attack lately? If so, today’s encouraging word is for you.
I heard the Lord say:
“‘Keep your heart with all diligence, for out of it spring the issues of life.'”
He went on to say:
“I spoke this word in Proverbs 4:23, but many of you do not know what I mean when I say that you should keep your heart with all diligence. This word is key for you today, so let Me explain.
Your heart belongs to Me and to you.
Your heart is Mine first, for you gave it to Me. However, in return, I have given you a new heart–the heart of Christ; the heart My Son died for you to have. You have His heart now, which is My heart.
Many have come against you in past years, accusing you of not having My heart. They have accused you and maligned you.
In some cases, people have told you that the things in your heart were not from Me, for they simply could not conceive and understand what is in Our mutual heart–the things which the natural man cannot know.
But, My beloved child, you must keep your heart safe and protect its ability to dream.
The issues of life spring out of your heart, not from your brain. The natural man cannot receive the things of the Spirit; they are spiritually discerned only.
The things your spirit has discerned from Me are those things which eye has not seen and ear has not heard, which have not entered into the heart of man. The only way you have known them is because you do not have the heart of man; you have been given My heart.
O My child, you must keep and protect My heart within you.
Dreams keep you alive, and I want you to dream. I want you to imagine the things that eye has not seen and ear has not heard–the things I have placed in your heart, which is My heart too.
The enemy would like to steal My heart away from you, but he cannot take it away unless you cast it from you. You are fully protected as long as you keep your heart, which is Our heart, and abide in Me.
Beloved, life flows in you when you dream with Me.
Did you know that every good and holy dream you have is actually from Me? Do you realize that the stirring and discerning and aching in your heart for more are actually an urge from Me? Do you even know the doors I want to open for you?
No, you do not. You do not realize all I have for you; you often think you are imagining things or making it up. You think, ‘Surely it could not happen for me!’
But I tell you, My child, not only can it happen for you, but it will happen for you!
If you will dream with Me with Our mutual heart, allowing My dreams and My heart to have full rein in you by My Spirit, then you cannot imagine what will happen and can happen! Indeed, I Myself am telling you now that I have put this hunger within you, and it is a hunger which cannot be denied!
O My love, I yearn after you.
I yearn for you to follow My ways–and you are, as much as you know. But you do not realize how much MORE I have for you.
I want to show you, however. I want you to sit down and imagine your dream life, for I can do it: even I myself. I want you to imagine yourself doing everything I have called you to do, and even everything you hope that I might have called you to do!
My call on your life is fluid in that I am always willing to show you more of My call, but it depends on how much of My call you are willing to envision.
How much can you receive? How much can you accept? For example:
- Can you envision that you are called to teach the Word? For I have called you to disciple nations.
- Can you receive that you are called to more than just what you are experiencing now? For I desire to move you into the fullness of My call, which you have not conceived yet.
- Can you imagine that where you are is literally only the beginning, and you will see the place you are at as only the gateway in future years?
O My love, you think it cannot happen for you, but it can.
I am looking only for a willing vessel. So if you will say, “Move me, Lord,” I will move you. If you will cry out to Me, “Use Me, Father,” then I will use you for My Kingdom and My glory more than you ever imagined. If you will ask Me to open doors and keep faith in your heart, I will do things that surprise and shock you.
Do not worry about the supplementary things and issues. I will work them out. I work everything for your good; all things are working out for your good right now.
I love you and will never leave you. I have entrusted My heart to you.
Will you keep it today? Will you guard and preserve My heart within you, knowing that life flows from your ability to dream–for it is My Spirit within you doing the dreaming?
My child, I will never leave you nor forsake you–any part of you. I will not forsake you physically, and I will not forsake your dreams either, for they are an essential part of your life.
Believe Me for more. Believe Me for your dreams to happen.
Pray for Me to do the things in you, with you, and for you that eye has not seen and ear has not heard, and which have not entered into the heart of man. Ask Me to help you receive My love and all it contains, for I have more for you than you ever imagined.
I love you, My child. Rest well in My love and adoration today.
Your Abba Father.”
Respond in prayer to this word:
“O Heavenly Father, I love You so much. Thank You for giving me Your heart to keep and guard. Please help me to dream with You today.
Father, in Jesus’ name, please help me to keep my heart with all diligence, for out of it stream the issues of life. Please do for me those things which eye has not seen and ear has not heard, which have not entered into the heart of man. Help me receive Your love and all it contains.
Thank You, Abba Father. In Jesus’ name I pray, amen.”
