MESSAGE "Another Way"



"You are going in one way, one direction .... but I will show you a new way.

Yes, you have been going down a long, dusty path ... a road of difficulty, seemingly unsurmountable.  It seems that it is an upward climb, a trudging along, a constant struggle.

I have another way.... a new path.  I am lighting the way through your dark places.  I am a way maker, a trail blazer. 

You have thought that I have left you ... that I have deserted you, even momentarily.  You have wondered of My whereabouts.
 {WHERE ARE YOU GOD??!}

***

I am here. I have never left. I am a *silent partner* at times, for seasons ... but I never leave. I will never leave, nor forsake. I care for My own, My kids.  I love you as a Father ... I pity you as a father cares for his own babies. I have TENDER MERCIES.

These mercies are new EVERY morning. Each day is a truly brand new start.

I know you are entrenched in your sins ... in your own personal battles. I see these struggles, these wearying times.

I have a new way for you...yes, FOR YOU.  I am your inventor of new things ... I am your discoverer of new ways of thinking ... yes, I can even renew - make new - your mind.  I will bring new thoughts to you ... new ideas ... new hopes ... new dreams ... new visons.

Yes, I am in the *new* business ... for, yes --- I make all things new.

***

I will breathe into you ... I will breathe life into your dried carcass ... into your dying frame.  I will bring My Holy wind gusts near and unto you ... directly into your pathways ... across your trails ... and into your living spaces.

Yes, My winds will often create havoc, but will also (then) bring new atmospheres, new quality to life,  and -- uncharted territory for you.

***

Sing Me a new song.   Sing to Me.  Let your voices rise to Me ... and not to another. I am your audience .  Sing for Me;   let your heart-felt words rise on melodies of love to Me.  I welcome your songs, your singing, your music made.

I stand ready to deliver ... armed with My Holy mantle., My *super-soaker* of anointing.  I will blast away your ghost-ridden past ... and I will destroy the heavy yokes upon your stiff necks. 

Let ME be your deliverer ... your confidante, your *go-to* man! Seek Me, even if you are in a dry and arid place ... even if you are drowning in despair ... I will hear.

I hear the cries of the afflicted ... yes, I care for My creation!  I love you more than you can ever imagine! Eye has not seen, ear has not heard...neither has it entered into the heart of man how much I love them. (*You!*)


Let your words be few, and let your ears be opened.  Be ready to hear.  Be still ... and know then that I am God.  G.O.D.

I am your *SuperMan* ... I am your avenging Super Angel ... I am *more than a Conqueror* for you ... and TO you.

 I will destroy the yokes ... the heavy weights ... the sin-filled lives.  I have come to DESTROY the works of the DEVIL.  Yes, I am the One to do it.  No other name brings such power. Wait for it.  Wait for Me. 

Pray. Yes, keep praying. 


I have not forgotten you ... I have not left. I am still here. I am with you now.  Oh faithless ones, let Me be your God again."
