Exodus 19:7-9 (NLT) “So Moses returned from the mountain and called together the elders of the people and told them everything the LORD had commanded him. 8 And all the people responded together, “We will do everything the LORD has commanded.” So Moses brought the people’s answer back to the LORD. 9 Then the LORD said to Moses, “I will come to you in a thick cloud, Moses, so the people themselves can hear me when I speak with you. Then they will always trust you.” Moses told the LORD what the people had said.”
Beloved in view of all that I have spoken to you in days past a response is now required. How will you respond? Even as you are feeling wearied and even overwhelmed My command to you is to continue advancing; you must continue to move forward. Beloved, I am still calling you to pursue, overtake and recover all. Know that your response is reflected in your focus. Are you keeping your eyes on Me or are you still consumed with your situation and not the One who is able to transform your situation instantaneously? You must respond by obedience. You must respond in trust. You must respond with belief. Abraham believed Me and responded with faith. Even when time and his body seem not to support the promise he looked not on what he could not do but what I said I would do. Joshua believed Me and responded in action and trust. When Joshua was told to go forward although he did not trust in his own ability He believed Me that I had gone before him and he went anyway as He trusted in My ability. The three Hebrew boys believed Me and responded in steadfast boldness and unwavering hope. When the three Hebrew boys were told to bow down to idols they refused knowing that I was able to deliver them both in life and death. I say to you, respond in faith, respond in trust. Do not allow your fears and doubts to overwhelm you and cause you to stagnate or turn back. Respond and stand firm in your faith; respond with praise and worship, respond in good works, respond with love. I do require a response that affirms that you belief Me and that you will obey Me regardless of the past failures, your present trials or your future doubts. I will honor your response of faith, hope, love belief and trust. Today, let your response be, Father I will do everything that You have commanded me to do. Let Me hear you say, Father I will not give way to doubt, fear or hopelessness. Come boldly because nothing can stop or delay what I have promised and at the appointed time that which I have decreed shall come to pass. Again I say do not respond from a place of doubt. Response from the place of the promise, respond from the place of already having received all that I have promised. Come on into My presence because you have been given access, come on in and respond and I will meet you there in the place of promise because My response is still Yes and Amen!
If you died today, are you absolutely certain that you would go to heaven? You can be! TRUST JESUS NOW
