Beloved, do you want a raw, potent look at the heart of God for you and in you today? If so, then this word is for YOU.
Massive Breakthrough Birthed Out of Massive Warfare
I heard the Lord say: "The size of the breakthrough you have coming is massive, and that is why you are fighting massive warfare."
"Long have you contended for the things that matter to you, and you have persevered in contending for them because they are from My heart. I gave you that perseverance; I planted your dreams so deeply in your heart so that you would not be able to let go of them. And now I tell you that you are to interpret the signs of the times around you. You are to read what I am telling you based on the signs I am showing you. I have revealed only a small portion of the warfare against your breakthrough; the rest of that warfare I am keeping hidden in the heavenlies so that you cannot see it. However, I am still fighting the good fight on your behalf!
"If I allowed you to see even a fraction more of the warfare that I am fighting on your behalf, your heart would quail. But you know what? You do not need to see it, for I have encamped around you who fear Me, and I am delivering you! You do not need to know all that I am carrying out on your behalf, for that is My business and not all of it is your business!
"But I tell you today, My beloved, that I am guarding you. I am keeping you. I (yes, I Myself) am the one who is STILL your pillar of cloud by day and your fire by night! You do not see everything I am doing, but I have shown you enough of it that you should know by now that I am showing Myself great and strong on your behalf! I am with you to keep you. Never forget it.
"The things coming against you might seem mighty, but they are like nothing before Me. If you will keep your eyes on Me, you will not even see them. You will not even notice them! I will eclipse everything in your horizon with Myself and with My greatness, and I will be all you can see!
"I am a consuming fire who desires to consume your vision. Look not at the things you see before you, but instead look at Me and My Word. My Word cannot return to Me void; it shall accomplish the thing for which I sent it! O taste and see that I am good to you and in your life, for I am the friend who sticks closer than a brother!

Increase Must Come First
"The breakthrough you are receiving is huge, huge, HUGE! It is getting 'huger' every day! The breakthrough I am sending increases in size as you fast and pray, and as you press into Me! But you know what? It may not come all at once, and you need to look for incremental breakthrough and value it the same way you value instantaneous breakthrough! One step at a time still gets you there! Remember that, little by little, I will drive them out before you.
"Exodus 23:29-30 says: 'I will not drive them out from before you in one year, lest the land become desolate and the beasts of the field become too numerous for you. Little by little I will drive them out from before you, until you have increased, and you inherit the land.'
"I did not give My children, the Israelites, their land in one year, because they were not big enough to handle it yet. They had to increase first. In the same way, I am growing you and increasing you at the same time that I am delivering you. You are getting stronger in faith, stronger in number, and greater in My mighty works and deeds! When I bring you into the fullness of the land, you will be able to fill it up. That means there is a growing process as you move into the land. That means there is a time in which you yearn for bigger, because you can already see that you will be able to fill it up!
"The key to all this is to bless Me for what I am doing now. That phone call you received? Bless Me for it, even if it was days ago. The breakthrough you got last month, last week, last year? Do not forget it; hide it in your heart. Keep these things and ponder them in your heart like My daughter Mary did! Thank Me for them and bless Me for them! As you go about blessing Me, your portion will continue to increase.
"You recently saw a glimpse of what I have for you, and you wanted it. You wanted it so much that the enemy attempted to turn your desire against you and take you down with your hunger! I intervened and did not let him steal that vision from you. But now that you have seen the vision, your word will test you. My word to you will test you!
"But you know what? Look at Me, child. Look up, for My word is always good! I cannot lie to you and I never have been able to. I speak only the truth, and the things I have put into your spirit are from My Spirit.
Carrying His Dreams
"My heart searches the deep things I have put into your heart, for they are My dreams too; they originated with Me. And I still need to fellowship with My own dreams, for they are the longings of My own heart too! Although I have entrusted those dreams to you, I have not released ownership of them, and so I am still hovering and brooding over them in your heart, because I am fellowshipping with My own dreams!
"The longing you feel for your dreams is My own brooding and 'overshadowing'! I am brooding over and overshadowing the things I have put in you. You see these things and they wake you up at night because of the strength of My brooding. You have no idea how close we are, you and I. I put these things in you, for I am in you, and we are carrying them together.
"It is a privilege for you to participate with Me and carry the dreams of My heart. I am releasing the things to you on the earth that are in My heart to release. I have been desperately yearning and brooding over these things for years of your life, and what a relief it was to see you finally become ready to carry them! That is why I am increasing you, because I need you to be ready to carry all the more! (Photo via Pexels)
The Great Burden Bearer
"I am releasing to you everything you can carry for this hour, and I will release to you everything you need in the next hour, season, day, and year! You have to hang on, for I am the great Burden Bearer. I know how to bear burdens, for I bore the burden of the sin of mankind! You did not, nor do you know it. I know how to bear burdens, for I bear the burden of My love for you! You do not know that love, in any way, as heavily and as strongly as I feel itâ€”but you will! And, My beloved, I bear the burden of My own heart, which is the weightiest burden of them all, filled with My grace, compassion, mercy, and My love!
"You do not, in any way, know how to bear burdens like I know how to bear them, and you do not want to know. But, My beloved, I am here. You do not need to know what I carry. I am God alone, and only I can carry it. These burdens are not too hard for Me, but they would crush you in an instant. So I am protecting you from the weight of the huge breakthrough I have for you by bringing you into it incrementally.
"Oh, My beloved, I love you so much. I carry you in the palm of My hand. Never forget that I have begotten you; you are Mine. I called you to Myself; I drew you; I desire you; I love you; I want you. I am everything to you if you will let Me be everything to you. I am the only one who satisfies you, and I am with you always, even to the end of the world."
Wow. Thank You, Papa God. Thank You, Abba Father. Thank You, holy Father. I love you so much.
Respond with me in prayer:
Dear heavenly Father, that might be the greatest word You have ever spoken to me. Thank You for carrying me in Your heart. Thank You for bearing my burdens and for carrying me and taking care of me. Thank You for entrusting some of Your dreams to me, and thank You for releasing them on the earth through me. Thank You for the huge size of my breakthrough, and let me remember that it is not my fight, but Yours.
Help me look to You and keep my eyes fixed on Jesus, the Author and Finisher of my faith, who, for the joy that was set before Him, endured the Crossâ€”despising the shameâ€”and has sat down at Your right hand, where He ever lives to make intercession for me.
Thank You, Abba Father. I receive this word today and I thank You that You who keep Israel shall neither slumber nor sleep. In Jesus' name, amen.
