Let Me be the center of your world. Let Me be the topic of your conversation. Let Me be your focus and top priority. I will give direction to every other part of your life when you put Me first. Give Me the first fruits of your labor. Give Me the first part of your day. Let Me lead and direct you into My path and calling on your life. What joy and freedom comes when you put Me first in every area of your life. Your Father who wants the best for you.
My child, this is eternal life. That you know Me and My Son Jesus Christ whom I have sent. This is what it’s all about. Relationship with Me. You have been chosen. You are Mine. I love you and want you to rule and reign with Me. Come to Me. Give Me every part of your heart, mind, soul and strength. I have a great plan for your life, but you cannot accomplish it on your own. This is intimacy with Me, that you surrender all to Me. Give Me your passions. For I desire to fulfill every passion that is in you. I have placed those passions in you to give back to Me. Then and only then can I release them in and through you. I have been waiting for you My child, to be truly Mine, wholly surrendered. This is the life I have planned for us together. My love pouring into you, you receiving and pouring back to Me. This blesses Me. This love is an extension of My plan and purpose to show the world what true love looks like, so they also may desire this relationship with Me.
Come to Me all who are weary and I will give you rest. Come sit in My Presence and I will fill you with all you need to complete the work I have given you to do. When I am working through you, you will be able to not only do what I am asking you to do, but you will do it with joy. Some things may feel impossible to you, but all things are possible when I am in control. I will lead you in unchartered waters, but the storms will not overwhelm you. I will get you safely to the other side and you will experience Me in the journey. Take My hand and walk with Me. Don’t be afraid of what lies ahead. Don’t hold onto what is behind. Trust Me today with what I have for you. It may seem like a risk to you, but I have you firmly in My hands. Don’t settle for comfortable and safe. Step out into the life I’ve called you to. You will enjoy the ride.
Don’t be so attached to this world. You are just a sojourner and alien here. Your true home is with Me. I have you here for a purpose, but as a soldier you are deployed to earth and soon you will return to your home. Keep this in mind as you live out your days. Accomplish the mission I have given you. I have the plan in place for you. Look to Me for your orders and carry them out in the power of the Holy Spirit. Always be on the lookout for others I am recruiting. Train them up and send them out. I am your General. I am looking for a faithful army to carry out My mission of love to a lost and hurting people. Wherever you are, look for opportunities to serve and recruit. The victory is won. I have gone before you. Trust Me and obey Me.
Do not worry about tomorrow, today has enough trouble of its own. Am I not the God of all the earth? Have I not purchased you with My blood? There is no need to fret. Believe Me and know that all of these things will work together for good. Keep trusting My child. Obey what I am telling you to do and leave the rest to Me.
My child, your life is not your own. This earth is not your home. Happiness is not found in acquiring things. Only I can provide the peace and joy your heart longs for. In Me you find joy. Everything else is a false substitute and will fall short of bringing you lasting joy. Money will not satisfy, pleasure will not bring joy, fame is a bleak substitute for what you can have in Me. Know this for sure, without Me your life will be empty. An empty pursuit of what only I can fill. Stop longing for the temporary and be filled with the eternal. You will have eternal joy when you pursue Me with your whole heart.
Take heed, be on the alert, for you do not know when the appointed time will come. What I say to you I say to all, ‘Be on the alert!’ Behold, I am coming quickly, and My reward is with Me, to render to every man according to what he has done. Mark 13:33,37 Revelation 22:12
I am the light of the world. In this world of darkness I shine with truth and love. Where there is so much darkness and destruction, I bring hope and peace. You are My vessel and I shine through you. I live in and through you to bring the good news to a hungry hurting world. You are chosen to be a vessel of honor. I have refined you so you can be used to lead the lost, hungry and hurting to Me. Remain empty of all vain pursuits so I can fill you up with My love to reach this desperate world.
For the upright will live in the land, and the blameless will remain in it. But the wicked will be cut off from the land, and the treacherous will be uprooted from it. Fear the Lord and turn away from evil. It will be healing to your body and refreshment to your bones. Proverbs 2:21-22, 3:7-8
My child, I am not a God of confusion but of order. I am not a God of deception but of truth. Base your life on order and truth. Seek Me in all your decisions and desires. Know and believe that My plans for you are sure. They will come about as you obey Me fully from your heart. I will not bless disobedience. Defiance I will not prosper. Only those who come with a surrendered heart, one that is wholly dependent on Me will I release power, anointing and vision for the work of the kingdom. I am after your whole heart. Then I can release every blessing, every plan, every desire that I have for you, even from the beginning of time. For we are His workmanship, created in Christ Jesus for good works, which God prepared beforehand that we would walk in them. Ephesians 2:10
