Believing Jesus’s Heart for You



“But one who prophesies speaks to people for building up, urging on, and uplifting.”

A COUPLE OF WEEKS AGO, while I was in the Secret Place . . . 

He who dwells in the secret place of the Most High
Shall abide under the shadow of the Almighty. Psalm 91

…I met Jesus in a vision-encounter and have been praying about the timing to share this message. Visions are not a new thing for me, but it is new to open my private experiences to the public; so here we go. I was holding the Lord’s hands and looking into His eyes.

His gaze glistened with tears.  His somber expression moved me, and the Spirit nudged me. He had another message to convey. So I asked, “Why tears? What is making You hurt, Lord?” [Whenever the Door opens (John 10:9), start engaging boldly (Psalm 118.)]

Two impression overtook my heart: His tears held duel meaning.

First, He was commiserating, abounding with compassion for the many women of God who’ve endured horrible brokenness and deep soul wounds during this past season. He is intimately aware of their near unbearable emotional pain. He weeps with those who weep (Psalm 34:17-19)

His tears also conveyed His grief over some of these women who do not trust His heart, do not trust that He is for them. He is not against you. The Spirit quickened me to the moment the Lord wept with Mary over the death of her brother Lazarus. Jesus empathized with Mary’s pain and loss (John 11:31-35). He wants to remind us that, in the midst of every crises, the heart of our Heavenly Father is for us.  And the Son of God is forever our compassionate High Priest (Hebrews 4:15-16). 

The second impression I sensed was one of good news: troubles and trials are never wasted. The painful pressure of the “valley” seasons of life test our hearts in order to squeeze out and expose lies and wrong beliefs about God — His jealous desire for us drives Him. Women of God, just as He is fully aware of when a single sparrow falls from the sky (Matthew 10), He has not missed a single tear falling from your eye

You number my wanderings;
Put my tears into Your bottle…” Psalm 56:8

In the middle of a crisis, we might see ourselves only as the dead man in a tomb, life’s over; we don’t see an end to the pain. But the Lord sees a death leading to a glorious purpose; and He’s waiting for the right moment to raise us up and “give (us) beauty for ashes” (Isaiah 61) His plan is to lift us out of the ashes of despair, hardship, betrayal, loss, and into greater renewal of life everlasting — and into Joy.

This intense kind of joy only comes the morning (Psalm 30:5) after our darkest hour. The Lord is already in the process of making every part of our darkest night “work together for good to them that love God, to them who are the called according to his purpose.” Romans 8:26-28

He’s hard at work orchestrating the perfect recovery and preparing spiritual promotions for those who yield to His Spirit in the midst of the darkness. Even restoring the years the locust have eaten (video). He is setting a table before you in the presence of your enemies—again—as Victor, gladly reminding the losers of the spectacle He made of them on the cross, (Psalm 23:5 & Colossians 2:16). The table and the cross are your reminders of His fierce love for you.

My prayer for you:

  • A fresh revelation of His Goodness. Ask Jesus for it . . . and receive it! 
  • A revelation of His Kindness. Ask . . . and receive.

He wants to shift our perspective
to align with that of our Father in Heaven.

Embrace a Heavenly perspective
and the veil will fall.

What’s your next move?


The Blessed Life of an Embattled Spirit

Encouraging Scriptures:

“Truly, truly, I say to you, unless a grain of wheat falls into the earth and dies, it remains alone; but if it dies, it bears much fruit.” John 12:24

I am exhausted and completely crushed.
    My groans come from an anguished heart.Psalm 38:8

But those who trust in the Lord will find new strength.
    They will soar high on wings like eagles.
They will run and not grow weary.
    They will walk and not faint. Isaiah 40:31

And the Father who knows all hearts knows what the Spirit is saying, for the Spirit pleads for us believers[a] in harmony with God’s own will. And we know that God causes everything to work together[b] for the good of those who love God and are called according to his purpose for them. Romans 8:27-28

“Even so consider yourselves to be dead to sin, but alive to God in Christ Jesus.” Romans 6:11
