MY CHILDREN GATHER AROUND, I WANT TO SHOWER YOU WITH MY LOVE. THERE IS NO GREATER LOVE THAN MY LOVE FOR YOU! MY LOVE IS PURE, UNCONDITIONAL, AND FREE. MY GREATEST DESIRE IS FOR YOU TO KNOW ME AND MY RIGHTEOUSNESS. OFTEN IT IS YOUR MISPERCEPTION OF ME, WHICH SEPARATES US. I DRAW YOU TO ME WITH THE CORDS OF PERFECT LOVE. I WALKED WITH ADAM IN THE GARDEN AND TALKED TO HIM AND MY DESIRE WAS TO HAVE ETERNAL FELLOWSHIP WITH HIM. THOUGH ADAM SINNED AND INTRODUCED THE CAPTIVITY OF SIN INTO HIS LIFE AND YOURS, MY LOVE HAS REACHED DOWN THROUGH THE SUFFERINGS AND BLOOD OF MY ONLY BEGOTTEN SON AND PROVIDED YOUR SALVATION. “For God so loved the world that He gave His only begotten Son, that whoever believes in Him should not perish but have everlasting life” (John 3:16). IT IS UP TO YOU TO MAKE HIS LIFE YOURS AND GIVE YOUR LIFE TOTALLY TO HIM FOR HIS MOLDING AND DIRECTION!
I INVITE YOU TO COME AND ABIDE UNDER MY SHADOW. “And the Spirit and the bride say, “Come!” And let him who hears say, “Come!” And let him who thirsts come. And whoever desires, let him take the water of life freely” (Revelation 22:17). ONLY YOUR REFUSAL TO COME TO ME SEPARATES YOU FROM ME. I HOLD ALL TRUTH AND WISDOM IN MY HANDS. I KNEW YOU FROM THE MINUTE YOU WERE FORMED IN YOUR MOTHER’S WOMB. “Thus says the LORD who made you and formed you from the womb, who will help you: for I will pour water on him who is thirsty, and floods on the dry ground; I will pour My Spirit on your descendants, and My blessing on your offspring” (Isaiah 44:2-3).
I WEEP BECAUSE MANY DO NOT KNOW THEY MUST MAKE A CONSCIOUS CHOICE DAILY TO KEEP ME IN CHARGE OF THEIR LIVES. I AM IN CHARGE 2-3 HRS. ON SUNDAY AND THEN THEIR LIVES ARE PUT IN NEUTRAL WITHOUT ETERNAL MEANING. MANY WALK AIMLESSLY WITH NO THOUGHT OF WALKING 24/7 WITH ME SO THEY CAN BE TAUGHT AS MY DISCIPLES. I AM OFTEN LEFT BEHIND WITH THE WORDS: “SEE YOU SUNDAY OR WHEN I NEED YOUR ADVICE I’LL ASK.” TOO MANY EMPTY WORDS AND PROMISES ARE MADE THAT HAVE NO ETERNAL BEARING ON THEIR FUTURE BECAUSE THEIR WORDS AND ACTIONS ARE WITHOUT ETERNAL SUBSTANCE. “He answered and said to them, “Well did Isaiah prophesy of you hypocrites, as it is written: ‘This people honors Me with their lips, but their heart is far from Me” (Mark 7:6). TO WALK WITH ME WE MUST AGREE AND HAVE THE SAME DIVINE VALUES AND DESTINATION IN MIND.
FRUITLESS CHOICES AND DECISIONS ARE MADE WITHOUT ASKING FOR DIVINE ADVICE. WHY LIVE WITH NO THOUGHT OF YOUR TOMORROW OR WHERE YOUR PATH LEADS? THERE ARE ONLY TWO ETERNAL DESTINATIONS–HEAVEN OR HELL. YOU NAME MY NAME WITHOUT CALLING ON ME TO HELP YOU PREPARE FOR THE MOST IMPORTANT APPOINTMENT YOU WILL EVER KEEP. YOU WILL STAND BEFORE MY THRONE AND HAVE ON YOUR WEDDING GARMENTS. “But when the king came in to see the guests, he saw a man there who did not have on a wedding garment. So he said to him, ‘Friend, how did you come in here without a wedding garment?’ And he was speechless” (Matthew 22:11-12). “I counsel you to buy from Me gold refined in the fire, that you may be rich; and white garments, that you may be clothed, that the shame of your nakedness may not be revealed; and anoint your eyes with eye salve, that you may see” (Revelation 3:18).
YOU MUST BE READY AND PREPARED FOR HEAVEN THROUGH MY LIFE AND SPIRIT WORKING AND FLOWING THROUGH YOU. OTHERS WILL SEE THE SPIRIT AND FRUIT WITHIN YOU AND KNOW YOU DWELL IN THE SECRET PLACE OF THE MOST HIGH AND DWELL UNDER HIS SHADOW, (Psalm 91:1). IF YOU LEAVE YOUR LIFE CHOICES TO YOUR FLESH, YOU WILL MISS THE WAY BECAUSE IT IS NARROW AND FEW FIND IT. “Because narrow is the gate and difficult is the way which leads to life, and there are few who find it” (Matthew 7:14).
ARE YOU GOING TO LEAVE YOUR LIFE CHOICES TO YOUR FALLEN FLESH (THERE IS NONE GOOD, NO, NOT ONE) AND LEAVE YOUR FUTURE TO SATAN’S CHOSEN DESTINATION? EACH MAN HAS THE CHOICE OVER HIS OWN WORDS AND ACTIONS AND IS RESPONSIBLE FOR THE FRUIT OR THORNS THEY BEAR. HOLINESS AND RIGHTEOUSNESS COME FROM UNBROKEN COMMUNION AND RESOURCING OF MY SPIRIT WITHIN YOU! “Thus says the LORD, your Redeemer, the Holy One of Israel: ‘I am the LORD your God, Who teaches you to profit, Who leads you by the way you should go’” (Isaiah 48:17).
YOU SOW IN WORDS AND ACTIONS ACCORDING TO GOOD OR EVIL AND REAP WHICHEVER YOU SOW. WHEN YOU DO NOT WALK IN CLOSE UNION WITH ME, YOU SOW TO THE FLESH (WHICH PRODUCES CORRUPTION). WHEN YOU DO NOT ASK ME TO LEAD THE WAY, OR YOU FAIL TO ASK MY PERFECT WILL FOR YOUR LIFE, YOU OPEN YOURSELF TO DEFEAT AND SIN WHICH SEPARATES YOU FROM ME. THE ONLY WAY TO OVERCOME THE ONSLAUGHT AND DESTRUCTIONS OF SATAN IS THROUGH YOUR CONNECTION TO CHRIST’S LIFE FLOWING THROUGH YOU. “Out of the same mouth proceed blessing and cursing. My brethren, these things ought not to be so” (James 3:10).
YOU MUST MAKE A CONSCIOUS CHOICE TO PUT ME IN CHARGE OF YOUR LIFE THROUGH ACKNOWLEDGING ME AS LORD OF YOUR LIFE AND THROUGH CONSTANT PRAYER AND COMMUNICATION. YOU ARE BOGGED DOWN WITH YOUR DEFEATS AND IMPOSSIBILITIES BECAUSE YOU FAIL TO STAY CONNECTED TO THE SOURCE OF LIFE (IN CHRIST). I HAVE MADE IT POSSIBLE FOR YOU TO ESCAPE THE TRAPS OF SATAN AND THE TRIBULATIONS OF THIS WORLD, BUT YOU FAIL TO STAY INTIMATELY CONNECTED TO YOUR LIFE LINE. “I speak in human terms because of the weakness of your flesh. For just as you presented your members as slaves of uncleanness, and of lawlessness leading to more lawlessness, so now present your members as slaves of righteousness for holiness” (Romans 6:19).
I AM HERE WAITING FOR YOU TO REALIZE THE FULLNESS OF GOD WITHIN YOU IS YOUR ONLY SOURCE OF OVERCOMING POWER AND ABUNDANT LIVING. THE CHOICE HAS TO BE MADE TO EXCHANGE YOUR LIFE TOTALLY TO RECEIVE MY DIVINE LIFE. THE FULLNESS OF MY LOVE AND JOY AWAIT YOUR COMPLETE SURRENDER TO MY DIVINE PURPOSE. ONLY THROUGH MY DIVINE PLANS CAN YOU ARRIVE AT TOTAL VICTORY AND POWER TO BECOME MY LIGHT IN THE WORLD OF DARKNESS. YOU WILL MIGHTILY OVERCOME AND HAVE A MIGHTY TESTIMONY OF MY LOVE AND GRACE WHEN YOU FULLY SURRENDER. THE WORLD NEEDS YOUR OVERCOMING TESTIMONY. SHOW TO THE WORLD THE ANSWERS TO TRUE ABUNDANCE OF LIFE THROUGH YOUR PURIFIED LIFE AND THE REFLECTION OF THE GLORY OF CHRIST SHINING THROUGH YOUR EVERY WORD AND ACTION. YOU ARE RIGHT WHEN YOU SAY, “I CAN’T LIVE UP TO CHRIST’S STANDARD!” NO, YOU CAN’T DO IT WITHOUT MY SPIRIT AND POWER IN YOU, BUT THROUGH ME YOU CAN PRODUCE AN ABUNDANCE OF FRUIT AND BE LIGHT AND TRUTH TO THE WORLD THROUGH THE FULLNESS OF MY SON IN YOU. THE APOSTLE PAUL SUFFERED ALL THINGS SO HE COULD OBTAIN THE PRIZE OF THE HIGHEST CALLING OF GOD IN CHRIST JESUS. COME WALK IN THE FULLNESS OF MY LOVE. LET ME GATHER YOU UNDER MY WINGS AND BE YOUR GUIDE, PROTECTOR, AND COMFORTER. I WANT TO WALK WITH YOU NOW AND FOREVERMORE!
Dearest Father God, I come in the name of Your beloved son because I desire to walk in Your love forever. I need Your teaching and guidance. Fill me with Your Holy Spirit and transform my thinking and understanding to know You in Your fullness. I know I can “come up higher” and live close to You and abide under Your shadow. Show me how to begin a life of close unbroken fellowship with You. I know You lead Your children with Your goodness and love. I confess my sins and failures and I come unto You to be created in Your image. I will not shun Your reproof of my actions, but I will learn from Your word and Your spirit’s directing how to walk as Your beloved child. Teach me to serve You in the beauty of holiness and through the sufferings in Christ. I want to wax valiant in battle and be an overcomer in my tribulations. I want to fix my eyes upon You and place my heart and will totally into Your keeping. I give You my all. With joy I want to drink from Your well of living waters and present to the world a life that lifts You up and brings glory to Your name. I give You praise for Your love and kindness to me and with joy I take Your hand to walk through the dark places into the light. Bring glory to Your name through my life! Amen.
