STOP, LOOK, AND LISTEN!
STOP, LOOK, AND LISTEN TO THE VOICE OF MY SPIRIT OF MY RIGHTEOUSNESS WITHIN YOU! I HAVE PUT MY SPIRIT WITHIN YOU TO CONVICT YOU OF SIN, OF RIGHTEOUSNESS, AND JUDGMENT TO COME. YOU ARE MADE COMPLETE BY MY RIGHTEOUSNESS AND HOLY PURPOSES WHEN YOU WAIT ON THE LEADING OF MY SPIRIT FOR ASSISTANCE AND DIRECTION. WHEN THE SPIRIT HOLDS YOU IN CHECK, OBEY AND CHOOSE OBEDIENCE TO GOD. MANY OF YOU ARE BY-PASSING THE WORK OF MY SPIRIT WITHIN YOU. YOU ARE QUESTIONING CERTAIN OF YOUR ATTITUDES, CONDUCT, AND DECISIONS, YET YOU ARE FOLLOWING THE LEADING OF “SELF”! YOU ARE BEGINNING TO NEGLECT “REACHING HEAVENWARD” FOR ALL THINGS THAT PERTAIN TO YOUR LIFE AND GODLINESS. YOU HAVE ALLOWED YOURSELF TO GET INTO A DANGEROUS TRAP OF DOING YOUR OWN THING WITHOUT EVEN CONSULTING ME. “He restores my soul; He leads me in the paths of righteousness For His name’s sake” (Psalms 23:3).
WOULD YOU ABANDON THE LEADING OF YOUR SHEPHERD-SAVIOR? HOW CAN YOU HEAR MY VOICE IF YOU ARE NOT LISTENING TO ME OR ARE TOO BUSY WITH SELF TO BE AWARE OF MY PRESENCE? I WOULD NOT BE SPEAKING TO YOU ABOUT THIS MATTER IF IT WERE NOT A SERIOUS STEP AWAY FROM MY PROTECTION OVER YOUR LIFE. THESE ARE PERILOUS TIMES WHEN SATAN (MORE THAN EVER) IS WALKING ABOUT AS A ROARING LION SEEKING WHOM HE MAY DEVOUR. “Be sober, be vigilant; because your adversary the devil walks about like a roaring lion, seeking whom he may devour” (1 Peter 5:8).
MY CHILD, YOU HAVE LEFT YOUR FIRST LOVE! MY LOVE FOR YOU IS THE SAME YESTERDAY, TODAY, AND FOREVER. INSTEAD OF THE MIND OF CHRIST, YOU ARE PUTTING ON A WORLDLY MINDSET. I HAVE GIVEN YOU MY ALL, AND YOU ARE GIVING ME THE CRUMBS OF YOUR LIFE! “Be watchful, and strengthen the things which remain, that are ready to die, for I have not found your works perfect before God” (Revelation 3:2).
MY BELOVED CHILDREN, HEAR THE WORD OF THE LORD:
“Listen to Me, you who follow after righteousness, you who seek the LORD: look to the rock from which you were hewn, and to the hole of the pit from which you were dug. Listen to Me, My people; and give ear to Me, O My nation: for law will proceed from Me, and I will make My justice rest as a light of the peoples. My righteousness is near, My salvation has gone forth, and My arms will judge the peoples; the coastlands will wait upon Me, and on My arm they will trust. Lift up your eyes to the heavens, and look on the earth beneath. For the heavens will vanish away like smoke, the earth will grow old like a garment, and those who dwell in it will die in like manner; but My salvation will be forever, and My righteousness will not be abolished” (Isaiah 51:1-6).
Let us pray: Dearest Father God and Jesus Christ my Savior, I come to You the source of my life and the light of my salvation. Forgive my straying away from You. I have sinned against You, and I recognize that I have allowed my love for You to grow lukewarm. I repent, and I am truly sorry for straying. Thank You for reminding me of who and what I was when You called me to be Yours. I have been following the crowd instead of following You. Forgive my sins and my being lukewarm. Cleanse me and perfect me. Strengthen me in my inner man and make me the child of God You have called me to be.
I choose You, dear Lord, and I will have no gods before You. I will pray and read Your word daily. Give me a love for You that will never again allow me to neglect or turn from You in any way. Put within me a burning hunger and thirst after righteousness. I want to be “sold out” completely to You. I re-dedicate my total being unto You. I love You. Amen.
Note: This exhortation is written to very real people in my readership on the web. I could feel God’s love and broken spirit as He wept over You. This is the first time I have ever felt God direct His writing to specific persons as He did in this prophecy. This is written in God’s perfect love and concern for Your souls. Anita
