Read Luke 1:46-55 NEW CENTURY VERSION
“Son, I love you. Today, I am looking with you at the Song of Mary, and looking at the words ‘He has filled the hungry with good things’. It is My desire and heart that you eat good things. It is my desire that you be lifted up from a low place.”
“In the time of Mary, the Israelites were brought to the lowest place of broken dreams and lost hope in the future. I lifted them up of the darkness and brought them into the light. This is what I want to do with you. What are the areas of your life where you are hungry? Where you are needing Me and needing My love to find you?”
“Yes, I see how life has been for you. I see the sadness and frustration that you’ve experienced in your life and where you feel hopeless. I want to restore the hope that has been lost in your life. I have remembered the promises that I have spoken to you. Yes, you did hear from Me. You have been My friend and you’ve been growing all this time with Me.”
“See Me with you in Christmas Mountain, wanting to fill you with a feast of good food- the good food of My Word, but also the banqueting table of food that is for your soul. You hunger for Me and you are thirsty to drink more of My presence. I want to give you wine for your weary soul. I have filled the hungry with good things. I want to fill you with good things. I want to feed you and strengthen you today. I see the needs and desires of your heart. You are hungry for food and for help. Your life will get better. It is My desire that you find a feast of good food to bless you.”
“Trust Me with your heart, and know that I am with you; pray and spend time with Me and eat and drink. My Words are strength to you, and nourishment to you. I want you to be able to drink new wine, which brings joy back to your soul.”
“I have a plan, I have not forgotten you. I will restore the years that have been lost for you, including the years of love and romance. Keep pressing into Me. Come to the banqueting table and eat freely. I speak life and blessing into your bones, and into your soul. You will eat in the natural a banquet feast. Your soul will prosper. You will be blessed financially. I will bless you and keep you in My care.”
“It is My desire to kill the fatted calf for you; to open up the doors for you for the Father’s blessing to be received by you. I see how much shame you feel because of the plight of your situation. I want to lift you up of depression and restore you.”
“Come, come, to the dining room, and feast. Feast with Me and enjoy Christmas dinner with your Father and friend.”
