I’ve watched my children struggle in their own creation of reality. To prefer the things their minds create, rather than know the truth.  But you will know the truth and the truth will set you free. Be careful to know My word and not rely on your own understanding, because My ways are just so much higher than yours. People will not easily influence you with their charismatic arguments, when you have surrendered your way to Me. There is a way that seems right, but in the end it leads to death. When you have committed your ways to Me, then you can trust that I will lead you to life! My way may seem like death, as it is a dying to the old and a resurrecting to the new but there is hope in it.  The walk I ask of you is not easy. It is one of denying yourself daily, picking up your cross and following after Me. But I am always with you, and I my reward is well worth your struggle.

Romans 8:18 [ From Suffering to Glory ] For I consider that the sufferings of this present time are not worthy to be compared with the glory which shall be revealed in us.

Luke 9 23 Then He said to them all, “If anyone desires to come after Me, let him deny himself, and take up his cross daily, and follow Me. 24 For whoever desires to save his life will lose it, but whoever loses his life for My sake will save it. 25 For what profit is it to a man if he gains the whole world, and is himself destroyed or lost?
