What Is YOUR Purpose?
The following corporate prophetic word was given by Eileen Fisher on January 21, 2014 during her weekly Prophetic School of the Holy Spirit meeting in Colorado Springs, Colorado:
"Understand that you truly were created for My pleasure. And those days when you say, 'Lord, nothing's going right.' Smile inside and know this truth: You were created for My pleasure. In spite of anything, find comfort in knowing your purpose."
The Spirit within me is saying, because sometimes, when things are going a different direction, we have to know that is our identity;that is our purpose. Our purpose isn't what we're called to do; our purpose is relationship – to fellowship with the Living God.
We were created to fellowship with Him; and that is to be so intimate, that wherever we are, we feel His breath, His hand, His pleasure. We feel the brush of angels' wings. We're so aware of Him that that's why we go some places, and that's why we don't go other places, because we're aware that He would not be comfortable there, and it would not bring Him pleasure.
And I hear the Lord say, "Many, many times, you face choices. In fact, every day you face hundreds of choices – choice, after choice, after choice. And with each choice, just as with each step, it could draw you closer to Me, or away from Me. For the enemy would come and sow seeds of doubt, unbelief. He would put work, after work, after work – of failure, of discouragement, of disappointment – to where you begin to say, 'Where are You?'"
He said, "I would say back to you, 'Where areyou?' Is that not what I said to Adam and Eve? Where are you?
"Where are you with Me this night? Are you in the fold of My arms? Are you where My hand can rest upon your head, and give you right thinking and right understanding? Are you so close that I need only to whisper, and you feel My breath, and know exactly what I am sending you to do, and the message I will send you to carry?
"Let the distance cause you to come closer and closer and closer. Learn to run into My arms. Learn to acknowledge My presence in every hour of the day, until you become so aware that you too cannot escape My presence, just like David. Because if you too were locked in the pits of Hell, I would come and get you, for you are My property.
Did You Know You Were Created By a Creator Who Wanted You?
"You were created by a Creator who wanted you. Perhaps the circumstances of your birth were not the highest on this earth, but I promise you, on My side there was dancing. There was rejoicing for another one – another one of us – We could love. Part of our family had come to the earth, made in the image of God, for fellowship, for identity.
"Know that you were created for a purpose. And after you know that purpose, then begin to pray. Seek My face for strategy, for what you were placed on the earth for. And know that you too must come to the point in your life that man cannot persuade you to take a left, or a right, to stop, or to run.
"But you too will have a song in your heart, and that song will be the same song that I sang: 'I must be about My Father's business. I only do what the Father shows Me.' But you must be very close, to see when I direct you, when I whisper, when I nudge, when I restrain you, and I say, 'Wait. Rest.'
"Be not concerned about pride, of always being right. But be more concerned about becoming righteous in My sight, because you serve and you dwell in the presence of an everlasting, righteous Lord your God. Seek righteousness. Seek first the Kingdom of God and My righteousness, and everything will be added unto you," says the Lord your God.
Let My Presence and Strength Roll Out of You In Times of Trouble
The following corporate prophetic word was given by Eileen Fisher on January 28, 2014 during her weekly Prophetic School of the Holy Spirit meeting in Colorado Springs, Colorado:
The Lord said, "Be aware, for the enemy would come with distraction, after distraction, after distraction, and only to deposit subtraction – subtraction from who I am. From who you are. Subtraction of strength, faith, and to rob you, and deposit within you despondency and numbness. Put you in a sense of shock, and an aftershock, and for longing, not knowing which way to go – to the left or to the right.
"But I am not a God who died for His people and then abandoned them. I am with you forever. I've said, 'Forever!'
"In times of trouble, call in My presence, for where you are My presence is. Do you not understand 'The Hope of Glory' that is within you? Do not look exterior. Do not look outward. Don't look around. Look in. Let My presence, let My strength, roll out of you.
"Be carriers of praise and thanksgiving. Be carriers of 'Amen,' 'So be it,' 'It is written.' Be carriers of 'Command,' that command My Word to be alive and active.
Take Up Your Position; Wake Up!
"Take up your position, for the King of Glory longs to come in and walk among you. But will you recognize Him? How will you recognize Him? What if you're asleep in your spirit? Wake up! Wake up!
"Let the shaking that you're going through become the shaking of the breakthrough. Be not shook for any reason, but be shook awake: to make a stand. And then the enemy will tremble and flee. But first, you must shake.
"Shake off the negative words. Let them drop off of you. Do not let the enemy live in the darkness of your words. Do not cover him with words of unbelief, for he hides and brings torment with fear, and aggravation, and regret, and remorse.
"Expose him by the light of My Word and My presence. You are My mouthpieces. But how can you speak what I tell you to speak unless you have come with praise and thanksgiving, and receive that which I would give to you?
"Ponder this well, for this is the key and the secret to the Kingdom. Let My Holy Spirit quicken this to you. Let this be a foundation, a cornerstone, for you are the temple. My presence dwells in your temples.
"Claim My ever-filling. Claim My ever-presence. Claim and remember the days of old, of My faithfulness.
"Allow time for Me to come and rebuild what the enemy has come to destroy. Know that I am a gatherer, and it takes time to gather. Know that I am a multiplier, but it takes time to multiply. But will you be willing?
Arise and Shine; You Are the Light
"Uncover the enemy with praise and thanksgiving, for he comes under the umbrella of murmuring against Me. For is he not called the 'accuser of the brethren?' He accuses, and accuses, and accuses until you stand with your heads down, as one who's been accused and condemned. That is not for My people.
"My people are resurrected. My people are strong. My people are called to arise, and to shine. My people are not called to hide in the darkness, but My people are called 'the light.'
"You are living epistles. If only My people would become living epistles. Will you be My people – alive in My Word and My Word alive in you? Do not take this lightly. For I have called a few here this night. I have given them the keys to a Kingdom. Apply this. I await your reply.
"I've called a people to be joyful, so that they will be strong and do great exploits in My name. Shake off the darkness. Shake off the negative agreement. Tell the enemy, 'No, get behind me.' Do not hide behind him with murmuring and accusing, one to another, for My Spirit grieves in murmuring, for My Spirit is truly connected with the Father and with Me.
"We have connected you with Us. We have sealed you. You are sealed by My Spirit. Do not take that lightly. Own it. Live in it. And let My Word do what it was sent to do – set captives free," says the Lord your God.
