Jesus said to them again, “Peace with you; as the Father has sent Me, I also send you.” And when He had said this, He breathed on them and said to them, “Receive the Holy Spirit.” John 20:21-22.
Today your LORD (יהוה) God says:
I lead you out to lead you in. I lead you out to make you free and I lead you in so that you enter your Promised Land. I never just lead you out of a troublesome place to just leave you in the wilderness. I lead you out of a place to lead you into a better place—a wide and open place of freedom. I want you free of the slavery of sin and death, so I lead you out to the spirit of life in Christ Jesus. I want you free of grief, so I lead you out to the Kingdom where there is righteousness, peace and JOY in the Holy Spirit. I want you free of darkness, so I lead you out of darkness into My own marvelous light. I want you free of sickness, so I lead you out of sickness by sending My Word to heal you and deliver you from all destruction. I want you free of evil, so I take you out of evil into the safety of living in the palm of My hand and the strong tower of My Name. I want you free of anxiety, so I lead you out of anxiety into the peace that passes all understanding. I want you free of greedy and grasping, manipulating people, so I lead you out into a place where you are surrounded with love and compassion. I give a home to the lonely and lead prisoners out to prosperity. And each time I lead you out of the realm of darkness I am leading you into the Kingdom of My dear Son. And He is the good Shepherd who calls you by name and leads you out. But where does he lead you? To the promised land. And He leads you with joyful singing. And they went out laden with silver and gold and there was not a feeble one among them. On the Highway of Holiness there is a lot of singing and joy.
I give you purpose. You were My idea. And every idea I have is a good idea. Remember? Each thing I created for the first six days I said was good, but when I made you, I said it was very good. You were My idea and design. You are created in My image and I want you here in this world now. You will get through any problem you are in because you have a purpose. I give you peace, purpose and power. When I raised Jesus from the dead and He returned to His disciples He gave them all three as His resurrection gift. He said, “Peace with you.” There is shalom peace. He gave you peace, His peace. No anxiety, no stress, no guilt, no shame. And then He said, “as the Father has sent Me, I also send you.” There is purpose. He gave you purpose. He has sent you just as I sent Him. And He finished the work I gave Him to do. I sent Him to seek out and save the lost. I call you all into partnership with Him as His body on earth. And then He gave you POWER. “He breathed on them and said to them, “Receive the Holy Spirit.” John 20:21-22. Resurrection POWER in you. And there you have all you need to go out and go in.
When you are in a problem you feel lonely, sad, depressed, and powerless. But My gift of the Holy Spirit delivers you from all these things. He is in you and with you always as your comforter and stand-by, teacher and coach, counselor and advisor. You can be given His input at all times. You will not be lonely with Him sharing My thoughts with you. And the fruit of the Spirit is joy! He is the anointing of Jesus and that is the anointing the oil of joy. If you are filled with the Holy Spirit you are filled with the joy of My presence, for in My presence is fullness of joy. And the Holy Spirit is My power. He gives you the power to forgive yourself for the mistakes of the past as He testifies to you that your sins and offenses I remember no more, He gives you the power to take down the mountains and renew the face of the earth. He gives you the power to love, to forgive, to have peace, to overcome. He is resurrection power in you giving life to your mortal bodies and leading you into healing and divine health. And He gives you the mind of Christ, of the anointing.
And the Holy Spirit testifies to Jesus and gives you the ability and the words to do the same. He gives you the power to witness to others the good news of Jesus. Jesus told His disciples to wait in Jerusalem to be clothed with the POWER from on High, to be His witnesses both in Jerusalem, and in all Judea and Samaria, and even to the remotest part of the earth. They were to be baptized in the Holy Spirit.
And with knowing your purpose as a “sent one,” you can have vision for your future. Without a vision, My people perish. You have a future and a hope. I am with you. It does not matter what is behind, the Cross takes care of that, it matters what lies ahead.
I love you. I have given you peace, purpose, and power. There is nothing that can hold you back from a life of shalom—nothing missing, nothing broken and no one alone. I lead prisoners out to prosperity and give a home to the lonely. Be led by the Holy Spirit.
