Surviving Internal Pressures In The Vine

The internal pressures of life do not have to wipe you out. In fact, I know you can be strengthened even while going through heart wrenching situations.

You may be facing betrayal, abuse, control, manipulation or even a death in the family.

I see so many go through this intense struggle and then the result is hearts tattered and broken.

I know it can be easy to fall to the enemy’s plot to put you in a pit of self pity. I heard a good line from my Bethel friend Jenn Stockman about this..

She said, “Self pity wants to steal the five steps to the feet of Jesus.”

But where do you find the purpose amidst this process and not fall into a pit of depression?

I know of only one place…and that is soaking in His Presence being cloaked by His Word.

I’m sharing this Vinedresser word again for you with this prayer from Paul. I’m making it my prayer for you.

For this reason I bow my knees to the Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, from whom the whole family in heaven and earth is named, that He would grant you, according to the riches of His glory, to be strengthened with might through His Spirit in the inner man….”
Ephesians 3:14-16

Listen to the Vinedresser

“My child, the garden of your heart is becoming dry, cracked, and barren. I see your valiant effort in running the race of your divine designed destiny. Come to Me now, and pour out the disappointment you feel with the delays and heart-aches.

“You can draw from Me purpose in the midst of the internal pressure. Under the surface of your travail lies a spring that My Spirit has deposited in you. Contend with your difficult circumstances by going often to this pool of refreshment. When the world invades your garden with the weeds of worry or foxes of fear, lift up your heart to Me.

“I will get down on My knees and help you pull the weeds. I will go to the well and pour the water out freely to keep the soil fresh. My Word is the fertilizer that helps you grow.“I am your sun. I am your shield. c I infuse you with grace and glory. No good thing will I withhold as you walk uprightly. A day in my vineyard is better than thousands in the cesspool of the systems of success based by the world.

“Blessed are you as you dwell in My Vineyard. The garden of your heart is My concern. Now take this time to silently soak. I will sustain you through this intense gardening of your own heart. I will get down on My knees and help you pull the weeds. I will go to the well and pour the water out freely to keep the soil fresh. My Word is the fertilizer that helps you grow.

Love the Vinedresser

I hope you will watch the short video above as I share more. Maybe my processing will help make sense to you. I hope so.

Rest now in Him.

He is your strength!

“A private place is reserved for the lovers of God where they sit near Him and receive the revelation-secrets of His promises.” Ps 25:14 TPT

I’m praying for you…in the Sweet Spot..

In The Vine,

Theresa
