What do you think it means where it says in My word, that if you give your goods away and even allow your body to be burned, but have not love, it profits you nothing? What do you think it means to “have not love”? I am telling you that I am love. Having love is knowing this. Having love is a relationship with Me. It isn’t manufacturing a service up to others, or even to Me. Having love is learning of My heart for you. Having love is learning of My sacrifice for you. Having love is believing what I say to you. I know how you work. I know how you serve Me. I have seen you give. But I have this against you, that you have left your first love. I am asking you to remember where you were. To take note of how desperately you needed Me. Remember how I forgave you and gave you love when you were unable to even lift your head. Remember and repent of your pride. Return your heart to it’s first love. Have My love. I am here and I am knocking at the door. Open up and have Me come in. I have chosen you as My witness. I want you to know and believe and understand that I am love. ~Jesus

Revelation 2:1-5 “These things says He who holds the seven stars in His right hand, who walks in the midst of the seven golden lampstands: 2 “I know your works, your labor, your patience, and that you cannot bear those who are evil. And you have tested those who say they are apostles and are not, and have found them liars; 3 and you have persevered and have patience, and have labored for My name’s sake and have not become weary. 4 Nevertheless I have this against you, that you have left your first love. 5 Remember therefore from where you have fallen; repent and do the first works, or else I will come to you quickly and remove your lampstand from its place—unless you repent.”

Today is a day of new beginnings! A restart. I am doing a new thing. I am providing a way out of confusion and turmoil. I am bringing you to spring of Living Water. I am supernatural. My ways are mysterious, but you can be sure of My faithfulness to you. I am asking you today to step out of confusion and worry and the turning over and over in your mind and to step into My Mystery. I am giving you peace here today. It may feel foreign to you, as you are more familiar with worry. You will find Me and come to understand that I offer rest for your soul. Step away from worry and into My arms. You can’t save people. I am the only Savior. You are only required to love.-God

John 7:38 “The one who believes in Me, as the Scripture has said, will have streams of living water flow from deep within him.”

Turn your eyes from the things of Earth. I have loosed you from the things that have held you captive. But you must walk away from them. You must come out and be separate. You must put down the things that link you to them. You were made for greater things than the elemental things of the world. The world’s desires are limited and lacking and have always tried to hold you. But I have called you to know Me. In knowing Me you are lifted beyond the things of limit and lack. For nothing is impossible for Me, and I am greater in you than he that is in the world. Today, lift your voice and praise Me for the greater things. The things yet to come to you. For I will accomplish more than you can even ask or imagine, according to My power that is at work within you. ~God

Ezekiel 3:12 Then the Spirit took me up and I heard behind me a voice of a great rushing saying “blessed be the glory of the Lord from his place”.

1 Peter 1:21 Through Jesus you believe in God, who raised Him from the dead and glorified Him, and so your faith and hope are in God.

1 Cor 2:9 “No eye has seen, no ear has heard and no one’s heart has imagined all the things that God has prepared for those who love Him”

The clamor of men is a swirling black smoke covering the nations. I am God, all powerful in My restraint, waiting for the fulfillment of My words. I am above, seated on My throne, but I am also sealed in your heart. This connection is as a white beam of light, revealing you as Mine to the world. This beam is unbroken and cuts through the smoke and clamor. As you unite with others who are mine, this light becomes brighter and begins to take the form of My Bride. I Am the head of the church, your bridegroom. Those who are wise will shine like the brightness of the heavens and those who lead many to righteousness like the stars for ever and ever. Put your hope in Me for My word is certain.

Psalm 33:20-22 My soul waits in hope for the Lord; He is my help and my shield. My heart rejoices in Him, because I trust in His holy name. Let Your unfailing love be upon us, O Lord, even as we put our hope in You.

Psalm 67:1-2 God be gracious to us and bless us, and make His face shine upon us; That Your way be known on the earth, Your salvation among all the nations.

Lean not on your own understanding. In all your ways acknowledge Me and I will direct your paths. Listen only to My voice. You will recognize My voice because of My love. I am kind and gentle and forgiving. I won’t condemn or belittle you. The voices of strangers seek to destroy you. I am teaching you not to listen to the strange voices you hear. I don’t want you to seek strength from deceitful authority, whose purposes are only to further their own agendas and plans. You know what love is because I showed you when I laid down My life for you. I am calling you to look to My love for you and to stop looking to imperfect people. As you come to know My love, I ask you to forgive those who have disappointed you and have misled you. They aren’t even aware sometimes of what they are doing, because they have been hurt as well. I call you to let go of your bitterness and resentment and to love those who hurt you and to do good to those who persecute you. As you do, you will know the perfect love that casts out fear and you will no longer fear, because you are being made perfect in Me.

1 John 4:1 Dear friends, do not believe every spirit, but test the spirits to see whether they are from God, because many false prophets have gone out into the world.

1 John 4 16-19 God is love. Whoever lives in love lives in God, and God in them. This is how love is made complete among us so that we have confidence on the day of judgment: In this world we are like Jesus. There is no fear in love. But perfect love drives out fear, because fear has to do with punishment. The one who fears is not made perfect in love. We love because he first loved us.

Romans 8:37 Nay, in all things, we are more than conquerors through Him that loved us.

I have often felt your hurt, from disappointments where you have expected things and people fail you.  But I have also seen their desire to love you. The thing that has come between you is your expectations. But I want you to put your hope in Me, and to be able to love regardless. I am teaching you to let your expectations be known and agreed upon, and even then you will often be let down by people. I desire for you to be quick to listen, slow to speak and especially slow to become angry. How can you love your enemies, if you can’t love your friends?  Every person and thing will disappoint you. I have made you in such a way, that only I can satisfy you. Don’t be under obligation, but be under My direction, and love as I have loved you. Trust in Me with all your heart and lean not on what you think should be. Acknowledge Me and I will straighten and direct your path.

Psalm 62:5 For God alone, O my soul, wait in silence, for my hope is from Him.

Romans 13:8 Do not owe anyone anything, except to love one another, for the one who loves another has fulfilled the law.

I have compassion on you. I see you as a sprout in the edge of the ocean trying to grow up under pounding waves. I have compassion on you. You are mine. I will scoop you up and carry you with me. I plan to plant you in a spacious place, where you can grow and become an Oak of Righteousness to display My splendor. I have compassion on you. I will not leave you nor forsake you. Stand and see the deliverance I am bringing to you and be of good courage, for I am strengthening your heart. Don’t look to others or even to yourself, for I AM your saving strength. Be still and know that I AM God. The process of maturing will happen speedily as you let go of your own efforts and look only to Me. When you hear My voice, don’t harden your heart and resolve to solve your own problems. Don’t say “I think or I know” but rather, in all your ways, acknowledge Me, and I will direct your path.  I have compassion on you.

1 John 4:18 (AMPC)There is no fear in love [dread does not exist], but full-grown (complete, perfect) love turns fear out of doors and expels every trace of terror! For fear brings with it the thought of punishment, and [so] he who is afraid has not reached the full maturity of love [is not yet grown into love’s complete perfection].
