I have asked things of you and you have refused me. You have ignored My requests. Your obedience to Me says that you trust Me and believe that I know what is best for you and that you are willing to honor your commitment to Me. But you honor Me only with your lips. When I have told you not to run in the street in front of a car, how can you expect to receive My protection when you do exactly what I have told you not to do? There are others who share in your disobedience, others who are in positions of authority. I have seen you look to them and continue in your sin, just because they do; but I am calling you to come out and be separate. As long as you refuse My voice, you will remain where you are. I have asked you to love Me with all your heart, with all your soul, with all your strength and with all your mind. Your obedience proves that and your obedience will save your life. My sheep hear My voice, they will not listen to the voice of a stranger.

1 John 2:3-4 This is how we are sure that we have come to know Him: by keeping His commands. The one who says, “I have come to know Him,” yet doesn’t keep His commands, is a liar, and the truth is not in him.

half light (1 of 1)-2

Repent for the kingdom of heaven has come near! I am calling you to turn from your darkness and step into the Spirit and the truth. I want you to walk in the revelation of My Presence and My Perceptions. I am lighting the path, opening your awareness of Me and My intentions for you. I am causing you to understand that the world and its desires are passing away, but My Kingdom is an everlasting Kingdom. The things you have talked about and read and heard about Me are going to manifest.  My Kingdom will come and My will will be done in your life as it is in heaven. No longer will you reason and try to figure out and strive to understand. I am transforming you, renewing your mind, so that you may KNOW Me. ~God

Romans 12:2 Do not be conformed to this age, but be transformed by the renewing of your mind, so that you may discern what is the good, pleasing, and perfect will of God.

2 Corinthians 3:18 We all, with unveiled faces, are looking as in a mirror at the glory of the Lord and are being transformed into the same image from glory to glory; this is from the Lord who is the Spirit.

Flesh and blood cannot inherit the kingdom of God. Only those who have a union with My Spirit will inherit My kingdom. So many search the scriptures and learn of Me. They are content knowing  of Me, but more is required for everlasting life. I stand at the door of hearts and knock. Those who hear Me and invite Me in are the ones who will know everlasting life.  You have heard and invited Me in to your house. I have come to dine with you, and you with Me.  I want you to seek Life from this place where My spirit and your spirit are united; this place of communion with My indwelling Presence.  It is here, dining with Me, that you will find nourishment. I will provide strength and preserve you. It is here, you will find your purpose, because united here, we break the bread and give it to feed My family.

John 6:57 Just as the living Father sent Me and I live because of the Father, so the one who feeds on Me will live because of Me.

Revelation 3:20 Here I am! I stand at the door and knock. If anyone hears My voice and opens the door, I will come in and eat that person and they with Me.

st. augustine door (1 of 1)

I came to the door of your heart. You heard My knock and welcomed My Presence. I dwell in you now. Your body is a vessel that houses My Spirit. I dwell in you and you dwell in Me. This is the secret place. I am showing you how to live each moment through My Presence in you. This means looking up out of your problems and beyond your circumstances to a greater awareness of My ability and provision.  My grace is sufficient and I do work all things for your good. I am able to do immeasurably more than you can ask or imagine according to my Power that lives and works in you. Because I live in you, you can do all things and be more than victorious and nothing in all creation can ever separate you and Me. ~Jesus

Revelation 3:20 Here I am! I stand at the door and knock. If anyone hears My voice and opens the door, I will come in and eat with that person, and they with Me.

2 Samuel 22:36,37 You make Your saving help my shield; your help has made me great. You provide a broad path for my feet, so that my ankles do not give way.

I want to encourage you to let go. I see your possessiveness. I am Creator and Sustainer, Author & Perfector, Beginning & End. I am Lord. Your anointing becomes contaminated when you try to control.  You say of things “This is mine” “My marriage” “My ministry”  “My friends”  “My church” “My house” “My life”.  When you say “this thing is mine”  you are saying that you are in control of its growth and its behavior and you limit and confine it to what you can do with it. But I, The Lord, have plans to prosper you; plans to give you a hope and a future, not to harm you, I will enlarge your territory as you release and recognize that I am in control. I want to peel away this control you use to protect yourself from others. When you allow others to be free around you, even in their ugliness and sin, you will experience perfect love. I want you to know perfect love and to show this to others. Perfect love gives it doesn’t have to take or require anything of others. ~ Jesus

Prayer:

Father, please forgive me for the way I want to make others behave and how I have boundaries that I require others to always respect.  I recognize that everything I have is Yours and I surrender control of every area of life to You. Forgive me for the way I use others to feel good about myself. Please infuse me with Your Perfect Love for others even when they do things that frighten me. I acknowledge that you are Lord: of my marriage, my ministry, my friends, my church, my house, my finances, my hope and all that I call my life. I release control to you and choose this day to serve You! Lord Jesus, readjust my sense of value so that I consider the unseen as greater than the seen, and the spiritual riches more precious than all the wealth of the world. Amen

Jeremiah 29:11 “For I know the plans I have for you” declares the Lord “plans to prosper you, to give you a hope and a future, not to harm you.”

Do you know that nothing in all creation can separate you from My love? And do you know that no one has the power to change My mind about you? I created you. You are Mine. My ways are higher and I see you completely. I hear the accusations and the opinions others have of you. But what I intended was planned before you were born. My intentions are certain. I am the One who justifies you. I sent My Son to die for you, and even more than that, He is seated by Me interceding for you. Just imagine this for a moment. Here I am watching you, and your accusers speak, and beside Me, My beloved Son stands on your behalf, in the love of His shed blood. Which do you think speaks to My heart? Your enemies whisper their opinions, but the blood of My Son DECLARES you righteous before Me. And you are more than victorious through Him! ~God

Romans 8:33,34 Who can bring accusation against God’s elect? (question) God is the one who justifies. (answer) Who is the one who condemns? (question) Christ Jesus is the one who died, but even more, has been raised; He is also at the right hand of God and intercedes for us. (answer)

Romans 8:39 No created thing will have the power to separate us from the love of God that is in Christ Jesus our Lord.

I haven’t called you into competition with one another for My attention. Nor have I called you to strive to secure your position in My kingdom. It doesn’t please Me when you feel that you have to “one up” or when you try to silence other voices, that have the same gift. These things are from your human nature and lead to death. I am calling you to live from your spiritual nature, where you are united with Me. I want you to grow up into My likeness and love and consider one another as better than yourself.  Know that the things you strive to be, you already are, you need only to believe. Let your land, your house, your being be filled with the knowledge of Me and you will have peace and cease striving. ~God

 Prayer asking for deliverance from human nature: Lord Jesus, enable me to walk in the Spirit and not in the flesh. Help me to set my mind on the things of the Spirit which are life and peace. Lead me, by Your Spirit, to put to death the deeds of my human nature, because I am Your child. I am not a child of human nature, but one born of the Spirit and I cry to You, Abba Father. In Jesus Name  (Romans 8)
