What I heard when I just listened…

These words below are what I felt like God said to me this morning. I just put myself before Him, pen and paper in hand, and this is what I heard. If you choose to read on, read slowly, and allow yourself time to absorb whatever God may have for you.

I love you. Come to Me and keep coming to Me. I am here. I am with you. I am in you. Just as you are in Me. Hidden – no enemy can find you there.

Trust Me. Trust Me with the plans and the process. Keep coming. That is all I am asking of you. Keep coming.

As you come, each step will illuminate before you, just like each word comes now after you wrote it down. But if I spoke the words to you all at once, you would never catch them all or be able to understand what I am trying to say. I give you what you need and what you can absorb. Then come again and there will be more.

I have an endless supply waiting for you. Just ask. That is the key. Yet I am still Sovereign and I will give you things you don’t ask for. I understand you don’t know what to ask. So I have made provision for that as well.

Peter asked John to ask Me a question and I answered it. I would have answered Peter if he had asked Me directly. It is not wrong to ask someone to ask Me on your behalf. I will speak to them for you. But I will speak to you Myself as well. The takeaway I want you to know is, I speak.

All of My words are present tense. Even if they were uttered in the past, there is still life in them today. My Word is living and active. Both Old Testament and New Testament. Testament means testimony which means ‘do it again.’ They are both My testimonies of what I will do again.

Don’t ask Me for what I’ve already given you. It’s time to receive it and do something with your answer. And I will show you what you have already been given. Just keep coming to Me so I can show you. It’s always been yours for the taking.

Now I am turning you from asking to receiving. From seeking to finding. From knowing to doing. From possessing to using. From having to sharing. From sharing to giving it away, so your hands are empty to receive more.

The more you give away what I give you, the greater the measure will be of what I will give you next to give away. Be faithful in little. Cultivate a lifestyle.

If you prayed once and I raised the dead, there would not have been time to build the intimacy with Me that I desire to have with you. That intimacy is also your protection. Your protection for when I say yes and grant a healing. Protection from pride which leads to a fall. Build yourself up in your most holy faith, pray in the Holy Spirit, keep yourself in My love. For I am able to keep you from falling. Coming to Me is what will build you up and enable you to stand firm. And that brings us back to the beginning.

Come to Me and keep coming. Keep showing up. You don’t need to come with an agenda for how or what to pray. Allow Me to make the plans. Allow Me to keep the plans. Allow Me to execute the plans. When you come, sit, and let Me quiet you with My love.

And just like Samuel, say to Me, “Speak Lord, for your servant is listening.” Samuel didn’t ask Me to speak. He assumed I had something to tell him because I called him. His words to Me were simply an acknowledgment that he was ready to listen. He was ready to receive what I had to say.

I have already called you. I am ready to speak. All I want for you is to put yourself before Me and tell Me you are ready to listen.
