It is easy to stand in faith when My presence manifests around you. However, there must be times when you choose to trust in My faithfulness and to believe in Me even when you cannot sense My nearness.  It is easy to have joy and say you know My will when you are keenly aware of My presence; however, I want you to demonstrate that same joy and faithfulness even when you do not sense My nearness and tangible presence. 

Some may think that the happiest people are the ones who have the loudest praise. The loudest praise comes very often from the ones who are praising Me while passing through their hardships. This is the kind of praise that pleases Me the most. I don’t want men to praise Me only when they are on the mountaintop.  It is My desire to see and hear the praises of My people while they are walking through the valley of the shadow of death. This is true praise; and this is the type of praise that will lead you out of the valley.

Can you offer up a sacrifice of praise in the midst of your pain and suffering? Oh, that My children will continually praise Me through the circumstances.  Oh, that they would realize the joy that it brings Me when I see My children demonstrating their love and faith in Me while in the fiery furnace. Oh, to hear them say, though He slay me, yet will I trust Him; yet will I praise Him.

Yes, I know there will be times when you don’t feel like praising Me. However, it’s in those moments that you must not allow your circumstance to dictate to you whether you will praise. You should praise Me because I am worthy of praise. You should praise Me just because of who I am. Although you are in the midst of difficulties, I am still worthy to be praised. Although you are in distress, you should still praise My name. 

My child, if you desire to come out of that spiritual attack that you’re going through; open your mouth and give Me a sacrifice of praise.  You’ve prayed about the problem; prayer is a warfare, but praise is a victory. You say you have the victory; well praising signifies spiritual victory. Lift up your voice and praise Me. Praise Me for who I am, not for what I will do, but for who I am.  Praise Me because you want to see My face, not for what’s in My hand. Praise Me because you love Me.  Come before Me this day with a heart of thanksgiving; enter in My courts with praise and bless My Holy Name.

I knew this day wasn’t going to be easy for you, but I already had it worked out for your good.  You may not understand why things happen the way they do; however, I want you to know nothing ever happens that I’m not aware of.  There is nothing you can you go through that will ever catch Me by surprise.  Everything that I allow to happen in your life is planned to draw you closer to Me. So, don’t stress over what the enemy is doing.  He can’t come near your dwelling place, and he can’t take your joy.  He can’t take what I’ve given to you. And this joy that you have; he didn’t give it to you, and he surely can’t take it away.

Continue to walk faithfully before Me and allow Me to be a part of everything you do; and then watch Me keep the atmosphere around you charged with My anointing and power.  Nothing, I tell you nothing, can defeat an atmosphere that is charged by My presence.  I ask you to draw nearer to Me this day in full assurance that I am in control. Selah. Be at peace; for what you’re going through didn’t catch Me by surprise; I already have it worked out.  Now, all you have to do is believe it and rejoice.


Psalm 139:16 You saw me before I was born.   Every day of my life was recorded in your book.
Every moment was laid out before a single day had passed.

Joh 15:11 These things have I spoken unto you, that my joy might remain in you, and that your joy might be full.

Rom 8:28 And we know that all things work together for good to them that love God, to them who are the called according to his purpose.

1Jn 5:14-15  And this is the confidence that we have in him, that, if we ask any thing according to his will, he heareth us: And if we know that he hear us, whatsoever we ask, we know that we have the petitions that we desired of him.

Child, I am not limiting you; you are limiting yourself. It’s My desire for you to great things; however, you’ve put limitations upon yourself by not believing in My word. If you ask Me, I will remove those limitations. I will put a desire within you that will cause you to hunger and thirst for more of Me and increase your faith. This increase in faith will allow you to step out boldly and do mighty works in My name.
