Vissicitudes
Holy Spirit thru Priscilla Van Sutphin

The winds have stirred and there is an assembling of my army that will come forth from those who have been slain by the enemy in this world. I am mustering an army of great consequence in these times. You are being tried by fire and coming forth as gold. I am tearing and making you over because I need an army trained in the vicissitudes of warfare. I need this army to know the GRACE of GOD and the MERCY of GOD more than the self sufficiency of man which makes impossible change of any sort that is effective.
Change is dependent on your flexibility and ability to obey at a moment’s notice what I want for you. But so many still struggle giving their day, their lives to me. You go on as if nothing will ever change or without asking ME, what it is I have for you to do today for ME. So your lives are not truly surrendered to ME. But I am escalating changes so that YOU WILL THINK of Me, and YOU WILL DO what I want, rather than go your OWN ways !
I need obedient servants with hearts like Mine. I need you to be open to whom you can touch for ME today ! I need you to be flexible and unquestioning in obeying My commands. Warfare is training for this. I want you dependent on your HIGH COMMANDER, and not on your own sufficiency or desires. You cannot do ANYTHING without ME !
Through many trials, I am getting you to see your need for relying on ME daily, hourly, minute to minute, and not just blithely going on without consulting Me for what direction to go. If you were in battle, which you are, You would need to rely on the commands of your leader for what to do next. Unfortunately, so many of you are used to doing things YOUR WAY, without considering My way of doing things. And I’ve assured you that My ways are higher than your ways.
Isa 55:8-9 NKJV "For My thoughts are not your thoughts, Nor are your ways My ways," says the LORD. 9 "For as the heavens are higher than the earth, so are My ways higher than your ways, and My thoughts than your thoughts.
I am asking you to come up HIGHER in doing things MY WAY. Going higher is actually going lower in the sense that you humble yourself by relying on ME and what I say to do things. Not relying on your feelings, but on ME for what and how to do things - Forsaking your own WILL that wants to do what it wants to do ! I am looking for yieldedness to Me.
Isa 40:31 NKJV But those who wait on the LORD shall renew their strength; They shall mount up with wings like eagles, They shall run and not be weary, They shall walk and not faint.
But I am finding too many who profess yieldedness, but in fact they do things their own way, without even waiting or consulting Me on it. This is merely SELF-sufficient pride and lack of surrender. If you want to yield to Me and truly surrender, you have to give up YOU. You have to surrender the me, myself, and I, in all that is in your mind. RENEW your mind through the washing of the word and you will be able to fall into line with what I want you to do. The WORD is life to your spirit and health to your bones ! Immerse yourselves in it so you can be IN THE SPIRIT in all you do, and so that you have an answer for all who ask of you. Immerse yourselves in ME, in the worship of Me, and in prayer, constantly communicating your heart, and I will answer you quickly.
I am a good Father, Who gives good gifts to His children. I long to give you your hearts desire, just as any good earthly father longs to give to his child all those things he didn’t have access to, so I long to give to you. I love you, and My love never fails. I am patient and kind and forbearing with the sons of men. Do not hesitate any longer for time is running short. Seek Me while I may be found.”
