There is life and glory after the death of a thing in your life. When you give up things that mean so much to you, things that have taken My place, you will grieve. Because setting aside falsehood feels like death. But I have called you to take up your cross and follow Me. I promise you life after death.  After you have surrendered and mourned your loss you will begin to experience My power at work bringing forth newness and hope. I want you to set aside your mistrust of Me and believe Me. The things you can hold in your hands are lies that will harm you. They can’t satisfy you. Only I can satisfy you, for you were made for Me. I don’t have plans to harm you. I have plans to give you a hope and a future.  ~Jesus

John 14:6 Jesus answered, “I am the way, the truth and the life.”

See to it that you are not taken captive by the deceitfulness of sin, which so easily entangles. There are things that attempt to lure you away from your devotion to Me. Things that are good for food and pleasing to your eyes, even things you do in service to Me. I don’t want you conformed to this world. I want your mind transformed and renewed so that you may know what My perfect will is. Ask of Me and I will give you eyes that see and ears that hear what My Spirit says. I want you to consider My Kingdom coming as more important. As you make this decision, this consideration, you are counting  or considering yourself dead to sin but alive to Me.

Luke 9:23 Then He said to them all, “If anyone wants to come with Me, he must deny himself, take up his cross daily, and follow Me.

Luke 9:24 For whoever wants to save his life will lose it, but whoever loses his live because of Me will save it.

I saw one in my spirit who was searching for the Presence of the Lord; seeking His Face and His kingdom. She was pacing, walking back and forth in frustration, trying to find a way to enter. The Bible says we are seated with Him in the Heavenlies and that Jesus has presented us through His blood, holy and blameless before His Father, and she believed that to be true. She settled her spirit and began to wait. Small yellow balls began to form before her as she waited. They made what appeared to be steps. She walked upon them all the way up to the Heavenlies. Where Jesus stood to greet her. He reached down and picked up one of the yellow balls. He held it in His hand before her and said: “Now, faith is the substance of things hoped for, the evidence of things not seen.” As He said the last word the balls vanished and she stood suspended before Him.  He then said to her, “Faith is for now.”

Release! Release! Release! Release your efforts to secure your position. Release your sacrificial service that you do to show yourself worthy of acceptance. You work to be needed for you fear being excluded. “Martha, Martha only one thing is needed, and Mary has chosen what is better, and it will not be taken from her.” Be still before Me and get to know Me. I have chosen you. I chose you in your sins, and I knew the plans I had for you, even then. I want you to release the responsibility of you, your house, your body-soul-spirit, your past-present-future, to Me, and receive My provisions. I have provided everything you need for a life of godliness. This provision comes through your knowledge of Me. Your salvation is in repentance and rest. In repentance and rest at My feet you receive the knowledge of Me. Receive today and believe and walk in faith for its out of faith, that you please Me.

2 Peter 1:3 His divine power has given us everything required for the life and godliness through the knowledge of Him who called us by His own glory and goodness.

2 Corinthians 9:8 And God is able to make every grace overflow to you, so that in every way, always having everything you need, you may excel in every good work.

I dwell within you. I am in the center of your being. This is the place where we are united, I call  it the secret place. I want you to begin to live out of this place. I want you to look around your heart because sometimes your feelings feel through past hurts and mislead you. I don’t want you to dismiss your feelings because I have given them to you to alert you to things, but don’t make judgements based only on your feelings. I want you to look beyond your mind, because My thoughts are higher and many things can not be understood especially when you wear glasses of expectation. Expectations you place on others tend to lead you to disappointment and cause you to sin. I am calling you to look through faith at My glory and begin to do the things you see Me doing. I will meet your needs through this glory and you will no longer need to look at people for what they can do for you. Instead, you will abound in good works, and serve Me by loving others as they are. ~Jesus

Philippians 4:19 And my God will meet all your needs according to His riches in glory in Christ Jesus.

Ephesians 2:22 And in Him you too are being built together to become a dwelling in which God lives by His Spirit.

1 Corinthians 6:19,20 Do you not know that your bodies are temples of the Holy Spirit, who is in you, whom you have received from God? You are not your own; you were bought at a price. Therefore honor God with your bodies.

I am your lamp. I shine on your darkness. With Me, you can attack any barrier. I am for you. I am not against you. My plans are to take you beyond barriers and walls, beyond any hinderance. For you are My witness. I have chosen you so that You can know Me. I am pleased that you consider all things loss, compared to Me. I will show Myself strong for you, and reveal surpassing greatness to you. I will show you the power of My resurrection. I Am your God. Be still and know Me.

Life and peace is found within you, in the place where My Spirit dwells.  For this place is connected to Me, where I am seated in Heaven. I am sealed in your heart and seated in Heaven. Your life is not of this world. In this understanding, you will find your treasure. At the end of yourself, where the new creation begins. You have understood this process, in your finances, when, you were poor and without, you knew Me as Provider. When you were alone, you found Me to be your faithful friend. When you were blind I was sight to you. This is a mystery that few come to understand because they are busy filling their life with the world and working to change their circumstances, but blessed are the poor in spirit for theirs is the kingdom of God. I have chosen you and I am pleased to reveal My life to you. I will give you the treasures of darkness and hidden riches of secret places. You are Mine and I am always with you.

Philippians 3:20 But our citizenship is in heaven. And we eagerly await a Savior from there, the Lord Jesus Christ, who, by the power that enables him to bring everything under his control, will transform our lowly bodies so that they will be like his glorious body.
