PURSUING GOD IS YOUR ANSWER
Prophecy given through Barbara A. Williams, August 9, 2003
There is someone who seems to always make plans and, even though you feel like you're obeying God and you’re doing the best you can, somehow the enemy gets an advantage, and you have lost over and over and over again; you’ve lost money, you’ve lost property, you’ve lost some things that you felt the Lord wanted you to hold onto. And the Lord is saying that, “I did not make you a loser. But you’re going to have to pursue me harder,” says the Spirit of God. “You will have to pursue me harder,” says the Spirit of God. “Because your answer is not in the pursuit and the retrieval of the things you have lost but in the pursuit of Me,” says the Spirit of God. “And just seek Me and pursue Me. Don’t seek Me to get what you want, but seek Me, period!” says the Spirit of God. “For this is where you’re missing it,” says the Lord. “I want our relationship to mature to the point where you want to have time with Me and fellowship with Me, not because I can give you answers to problems, but because you need to spend time with Me,” says the Spirit of God.
“And understand that I know everything that you need, I know everything that the devil’s stolen. In fact, I have it reserved for you. But you have not learned the art of pursuit,” says the Spirit of God. “you have not learned and perfected the art pursuit of Me,” says the Spirit of God. “For the enemy would make you think that things and the loss of things is the problem, but it’s not the problem. The problem is not having the right relationship with me where I can give you minute by minute wisdom, minute by minute instruction, and minute by minute direction as to which way to go,” says the Spirit of God.
“And I am commanding My body to grow up! Grow up! Grow up! Grow up! Grow up! Grow up! Grow up!” says the Spirit of God. “And treat Me like I’m God, and I will treat you like You’re my child, and you’re my heir. If you treat Me like I’m God, then I will treat you like you’re my child and my heir,” says the Spirit of God. “And I will withhold nothing from you,” says the Lord. “But you’re going to pursue Me. You’re going to pursue ME because that’s where your release is, that’s where your answer is, and that’s where your hope is,” says the Spirit of the Living God.
“For the enemy comes and he steals to distract you. It’s an old game, but it works. He comes and he steals so he can distract you and keep you from pursuing Me and the best that I have for you,” says the Spirit of God. Don’t be concerned about small things, losses, petty things, things in the past,” says the Lord, “but look to your future in Me. Look to your bright future in Me and pursue Me like you have never pursued Me,” says the Lord. “Pursue Me in the Word, Pursue Me in worship, Pursue Me in your meditation,” says God. “And surely you will rise up and be strong and the enemy will fear you for a change, instead of you always getting ripped off,” says the Lord.
“So understand this, that when you pursue Me, you take on My power, My character, My wisdom, My knowledge; you are as I would be in the world,” says the Spirit of God. “And you have all things because all things are given unto you because we have relationship and we have covenant, and you keep your covenant,” says the Spirit of the Living God.
No good thing… No good thing… He will not withhold any good thing from those who are pursuing Him. No good thing… all good things are yours.
