My child, prayer is just talking and listening to Me. Don’t complicated it. I desire relationship with you. How would you talk to a close friend? How would you communicate with your spouse? Talk to Me and spend time listening to Me. I have so much to share with you when you take the time to listen.
My child, I am who your heart longs for. I am who your soul desires. Every attempt to fill up with anything or anyone besides Me will fail. That hole in your heart can only be filled up with Me.
Choose Me over every vain pursuit. Nothing will satisfy your thirsty soul except Me. I have what you need. I am the answer to all of your questions. I am what your heart and soul longs for. Stop looking everywhere else. Cease striving. I am your God. I am your fulfillment and complete satisfaction comes when you give yourself fully to Me. Come and drink your fill. Come and be satisfied. Be filled to overflowing. I am all you need. This world doesn’t hold a candle to what I am offering you.
My child, I am bringing you into a new season. A season of life, joy and productivity. You will bear much fruit as you stay connected to Me, your Vine. I am the One who brings life, hope and fruit. I am the One who produces the outcome. Your job is to stay connected. Be My branch. Be My vessel. Be the conduit that I can pour My Holy Spirit through. Look to Me for every good gift. I am your provider.
My child, one thing I want you to know. My love endures forever. Nothing will every change My love for you. Be encouraged and strengthened in knowing that I am your God. I am the lover of your soul. Enter into My rest, the rest that comes from the assurance of your salvation, belief in My Son and faith in His resurrection power. Walk in confidence My child. Confidence in Me. You may stumble and fall, but I still love you. All you need to do is come to Me with sincerity of heart and repent. I will never reject you or turn you away. You are My beloved one. I have chosen you My child to live with Me forever.
My child, how I long to give you a greater desire for intimacy with Me. How I desire to draw you closer and commune with your every moment of every day. I long for you My child. I love you with an everlasting love. Never think for one minute My thoughts are not on you. My eyes are never turned away. My heart is always reaching out toward you. I am here every moment. In a flash, in a heartbeat, I am right here with you. You don’t see time and space like I do. I created time and space. I created you to have deep fellowship with Me. Come in to the relationship you were designed to have with me. You are My joy and My bride.
As I began to learn about God as a new Christian, I saw that sin is a big issue for believers. The Bible has dozens of warnings about sin, most which point to my personal responsibility to say “no” to it. But saying “no” was the very thing I was having trouble with! The more I learned, the more confused I seemed to get. What really baffled me was Paul’s account of his own struggle with sin.
Yet why not be confused? Regarding human weakness, Paul said, “If I am doing the very thing I do not want, I am no longer the one doing it, but sin which dwells in me.” What in the world did he mean by that? Could he actually be shirking off personal responsibility for sin? There’s no question that Paul recognized his duty to wrestle against his flesh in resisting sin. He’s not excusing sin, but rather trying to get to the root of the problem in the believer’s life. Shouldn’t we be doing the same?
From Free from the Power of Sin: the Keys to Growing in God in Spite of Yourself
My child, lift your eyes to heaven. Turn your face upward and see. Behold, look towards Me, the Maker of heaven and earth. I will show you My glory. I will pour out My lovingkindness upon your head and in your heart. You will see and know that it is I, the Lord who comes in power. I am coming for My bride, My pure and spotless bride, clothed in righteousness in the blood of the Lamb. Rejoice and be glad, for the time is near. Be about My business for I am coming soon. Invite the lost, heal the sick, love your neighbor. Do these things and live. Go after those who are in bondage and show them the way to freedom. Rejoice and be glad. I am returning for you My bride, and for all those who believe in Me.
My child, this is not the end of the story. There is much more ahead. What lies ahead is grander than you can imagine. Picture the most beautiful landscape you have ever seen. Now intensify that by a thousand times. Vivid colors splashing, intense smells, warmth all around, peace, joy and love like you’ve never experienced here on earth. This is what lies ahead for you. Never fear death. Death releases you from the earth and brings you into My presence for eternity. What joy awaits you My child. Live with the expectation of one day being with Me, the lover of your soul for eternity. I long to share My glory with you. This is your destiny.
To go to the next level in the natural realm, you must go to the next level in the Spiritual realm. I will not let you ascend higher in the natural until you have gone higher with Me in the Spiritual. I desire to take you higher. Higher in both realms, but you must be in a place of full surrender and total dependence on Me. Come, humble yourself under My Mighty hand and I will lift you up. Your Father who has great plans for you.
