I don’t want you to be one who writes and talks about Me but doesn’t walk like I do. A virtual Christian.  When you receive the fruit of My Spirit, in My patience and kindness, it angers Me to see you yell angrily at others when your way is blocked. Or when you receive My unconditional love, yet put conditions and “boundaries” on your love for others. I am calling you to choose to believe that you are My representitive and by all means come up and take possession of My Character!  Don’t turn away from Me when I correct you, for I have chosen you and I was aware of your shortcomings and sins. You are Mine and I discipline those who belong to Me. Turn into Me in repentance and receive My provision of grace. I am always with you and nothing can separate you from My love.~Jesus

1 John 2:6 The one who says he remains in Him should walk just as He walked.

Romans 8:14 For as many as are led by the Spirit of God, they are the sons of God.

2 Corinthians 5:20 Therefore, we are ambassadors for Christ, certain that God is appealing through us.

rest boat with verse2

In quiet times of prayer, in rest you receive grace to grasp My Glory. In your efforts to accomplish you forfeit this Power. Your flesh fears stillness, because it is afraid of dying, but My Spirit delights when you sit at My feet and faithfully trust Me. The world, your family and even your friends will pressure you to move and do and make things happen. But know, My child, this is not My way. My work is finished and I yearn for you to sit awhile with Me and allow Me to give Myself to you.

Psalm 46:10 Cease striving and know that I am God; I will be exalted among the nations, I will be exalted in the earth.

Hebrews 4:3 and yet His works have been finished since the foundation of the world.

Hebrews 4:9-11 Therefore, a Sabbath rest remains for God’s people. For the person who has entered His rest has rested from his own works, just as God did from His. Let us then make ever effort to enter that rest, so that no one will fall into the same pattern of disobedience.

Hebrews 4:16 Therefore let us come to the throne of grace with boldness, so that we may receive mercy and find grace to help us at the proper time.

I know your heart towards Me. I know your devotion.  I also know the places you have yet to surrender.  When they are revealed to you and you realize that you have sinned, don’t turn away from Me. I am the source of forgiveness.  I know you completely, past present and future and I have chosen you.  It is My plan that you be conformed to My likeness. When you are exposed, it is an opportunity for you to receive My provisions. Most times when you sin, it is because you need something yet refuse to turn to My provisions for it. Confess your sin, your pride and especially your unbelief. I counsel you to buy gold from Me that has been refined and white clothes to cover your nakedness. Set Me as Lord of your heart so that when these things come you won’t be easily turned from Me. I am at work in you and it is My pleasure to complete this work.

Romans 8:30 And those He predestined, He also called; and those He called, He also justified; and those He justified, He also glorified.

Ephesians 3:16,17 I pray that He may grant you, according to the riches of His glory, to be strengthened with power in the inner man through His Spirit, and that the Messiah may dwell in your hearts through faith.

I am Lord of hosts.  You have become My host as you have allowed Me to dwell in you.  I am your portion and very great reward, because you carry in your body My Life and Spirit.  Because of this, you receive My promise and blessings, My inheritance in the Promised Land. Your union with Me entitles you to My Victory. Know that I have overcome and Am seated in the heaven-lies even as I AM seated and sealed in your heart.~ Jesus

Jeremiah 10:16 Jacob’s Portion is not like these because He is the One who formed all things. Israel is the tribe of His inheritance. Yahweh of Hosts is His name.

1 Corinthians 6:17 He who is joined to the Lord is one spirit with Him.

half light (1 of 1)-2

Calamity and terror come in like a storm when you neglect My counsel and choose not to fear Me. This is not My wrath, but rather the fruit of your own ways.  I came that you might have life in Me. Turning from Me, brings death for there is life only in Me.  The devil holds out promises to you that he is unable to keep. He appears friendly, but he will cut your feet out from under you, while he smiles into your face.  But whoever listens to Me will live securely and be free from the fear of danger.~ God

Proverbs 1: 29-32 Because they hated knowledge, didn’t choose to fear the Lord, were not interested in my counsel, and rejected all my correction, they will eat the fruit of their way and be glutted with their own schemes. For the turning away of the inexperienced will kill them, and the complacency of fools will destroy them. But whoever listens to me will live securely and be free from the fear of danger.

As you wait for you next assignment, bring your expectations to Me. Settle in to the contentment I have provided for you. Walk next to Me like a weaned child with his mother, knowing I will provide and take care of you. Don’t set your eyes solely on getting your way. I want you to know that you have of Me the things you ask for in My name and be able to focus on Me and our walk together. There are things I want you to see in your wait, that I don’t want you to miss by being blinded by your expectations.  I am extending joy to you today. I want you to laugh with Me. This is a sign to enemies signaling their defeat. For I have enabled you to laugh at the future through your faith and hope in Me.~Jesus

Ephesians 3:17-19 So that Christ may dwell in your hearts through faith…that you may be filled up to all the fullness of God.

Psalm 33:21-22 For our heart rejoices in Him, because we trust in His holy name. Let Your lovingkindness, O Lord, be upon us, according as we have hoped in You.

Psalm 86 :17 Show me a sign of your goodness; my enemies will see and be put to shame because You, Lord have helped and comforted me.

Do not fear. I have not given you a spirit of fear. I feel your thoughts in this time of peace, anticipating the storm. I see your worry. My peace will guard you today and My peace will be with your tomorrows. You have all that you need to abound in good works. I will never leave nor forsake you and nothing in all creation can separate us. You are Mine and belong in My family.  I say again; Do not fear!  I will be your confidence and keep your foot from being taken. No weapon formed against you will prosper. I am always with you and I do not change.~God

Romans 8:15 For you have not received a spirit of bondage again to fear; but you have received the Spirit of adoption, whereby we cry, Abba, Father.
