There is a mighty battle going on for control of your mind. Heaven and earth
intersect in your mind: the tags of both spheres influence your thinking. I
created you with the capacity for experience foretaste of heaven. When you
shut out the world and focus on My Presence, you can enjoy sitting wiith Me
in heavenly realms. This is an incredible privilege reserved for precious
ones who belong to Me and seek My Face. Your greatest strength in your
desire to spend time communing with Me, My Spirit fills your mind with Life
The world exerts a downward pull on your thoughts. Media bombard you with greed, lust , and cynicismWhen you face these things pray for protection and discernment . Stay in continual communication with Me whenever you walk through the wasteland of this world. Refuse to worry because this form of worldliness will weigh you down and block awareness of My Presence. Stay alert , recognizing the battle waged against you r mind . Look forward to an eternity of strife-free living, reserved for you in heaven
Seek to please Me above all else. Let that goal be you focal point as you go
through this day. Such a mind set will protect you from scattering your
energy into the wind.The free will I bestowed on you come with awesome
responsibility \. Each day presents you with choice after choice. Many of
these decisions you ignore and thus make by default. Without a focal point
to guide you , you can easily lose your way. That’s why it is so important
to stay in communication with Me, living in thankful awareness of My
You inhabit a fallen disjointed world, where things are constantly unraveling around the edges. Only a vibrant relationship with Me can keep you from coming unraveled too
Rest in Me My child, This time devoted to Me is meant to be peaceful. You
Don’t have to perform in order to receive My Love . I have boundless
Unconditional Love for you. How it grieves Me to see My children working
For Love trying harder and harder yet never feeling good enough to be loved
Be careful that your devotion to Me does not become another form of work. I want you to come into My presence joyfully and confidently . You have nothing to fear, for you wear My own righteousness . Gaze into My eyes and you will see no condemnation , only Love and delight in the one I see. Be blessed as My Face
Accept each day exactly as it comes to you/ By that, I mean not only the
Circumstances of your day but also the condition of your body. Your
Assignment is to trust Me absolutely, resting in My sovereignty and
On some days your circumstances and your Physical condition feel out of balance. The demands on you seem far greater than your strength . Day lie that present a choice between the alternative — giving up or relying on Me. Even if you wrongly choose the first alternative, I will not reject you. You can turn to Me at any point and I iwill help you crawl out of the mire of discouragement . I will infuse My strength into you moment by moment, giving you all that you need for this day. Trust Me by relying on My empowering Presence.
Do everything in dependence on Me. The desire to act independent from Me—– springs from the root of pride. Self-sufficiency is subtle, insinuating its way into your thoughts and actions without you realizing it. But apart from Me, you can do nothing that is nothing of eternal value. My deepest desire for you is that you learn to depend on Me in every situation . I move heaven and earth to accomplish ths purpose, but you must collaborate with Me in this training . Teaching you would be simple if I negated your free will or overwhelmed you with My power. However, I love you much too much to withdraw the godlike privilege I bestowed on you as My image-bearer. Use your freedom wisely, by relying on Me constantly. Thus you enjoy My Presence and My Peace.
Grow strong in your weakness. Some of My children I’ve gifted with abundant strength and stamina. Others like you have received the humble gift of frailty. Your fragility is not a punishment, nor does it indicate t lack of faith. On the contrary , weak ones like you must live by faith, depending on Me to get you through the day. I am developing your ability to trust Me, to lean on Me, rather than your understanding. Your natural preference is to plan out your day, knowing what will happen when. My preference is for you to depend on Me continually, trusting Me to guide you and strengthen you as needed. This is how you grow strong in your weakness
Seek Me with your whole being, I desire to be found by you, and I orchestrate the events of your life with that purpose I mind. When things go well and you are blessed, you fee Me smiling on you. When you encounter tough patches along your life journey, trust that My Light is still shining upon you. My reason for allowing these adversities may be shrouded in mystery, but My continual Presence with you is an absolute promise. Seek Me in good times, seek Me in hard times. You will find Me watching over you all the time.
There is no place so desolate that you can not find Me there. When Hagar fled
from her mistress, Sarah, into the wilderness, she thought she was utterly
alone and forsaken. But Hagar encountered Me in that desolate place. There
she addressed Me as the Living One who sees Me. Through that encounter with
My Presence, she gained courage to return to her mistress.
No set of circumstances could ever isolate you from My loving Presence . Not only do I see you always; I see you as a redeemed saint, gloriously radiant in My righteousness. That is why I take great delight in you and rejoice ove you with singing
I am the eternal I Am; I always have been, and always will be. In Mr
Presence you experience Love andLight, Peace and Joy. I am intimately
involved in all your moments , and I am training you to be aware of Me at
all times. Your assignment is to collaborate with Me in this training
I have taken up residence within you; I am central in your innermost being. Your mind goes off in tangents from its holy center, time after time. Do not be alarmed by your inability to remain focused on Me. Simply bring your thoughts gently back to Me each time they wander. The quickest way to redirect your mind to me is to whisper My Name.
Entrust your loved ones to Me; release them into My protective care They are
much safer with Me then in your clinging hands. If you let a loved one
become an idol in your heart, you endanger that one— as well as yourself.
Remember the extreme measures I used with Abraham and Isaac. I took Isaac to
the very point of death to free Abraham from son worship. Both Abraham and
Isaac suffered terribly because of the father’s undisciplined emotions. I
detest idolatry even in the form of parental love.
When you release loved ones to Me, you AR free to cling to My hand. As you
entrust others into My care, I am free to shower blessings on them. My
Presence will go with them wherever they go, and I will give them rest. This
same PRESENCE STAYS WITH YOU, AS YOU RELAX AND PLACE YOUR TRUT IN ME. Watch
to see what I will do.
