I want you to look at My people the way I have looked at you. I want you to love them the way I have loved you. They are not projects. They are not numbers that reveal your importance. They are Mine. They have My eyes and My heart beats within them.  Do you love Me? Feed My sheep. Give Me a drink of water!  I have clothed you in righteousness and shod your feet with the gospel of peace. My Holy Spirit has poured out My love in your heart. You have everything you need to abound in good work for My Grace is sufficient for you. And remember it is not you working, but I work in you, both to will and to do according to My good pleasure. When your eyes can see the need of the people as bigger than your need to give, then you will be on a mission. If your mission for Me is bigger, then it is your god.~Jesus

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.

John 4:10 Jesus answered, “If you knew the gift of God, and who is saying to you, ‘Give Me a drink,’ you would ask Him, and He would give you living water.”

1 Corinthians 13 If I speak human or angelic languages but do not have love, I am a sounding gong or a clanging cymbal. If I have the gift of prophecy and understand all mysteries and all knowledge, and if I have all faith so that I can move mountains but do not have love, I am nothing. And if I donate all my goods to feed the poor,
and if I give my body in order to boast but do not have love, I gain nothing.

I have walked among your prayers. You have seen My sandals and My robes. You have seen My laughter and shared in My joy.  As I have passed by, I have called you to follow after Me.  I am taking slow measured steps to allow you to come into sync and walk as I walk. I have shod your feet with the gospel of peace and I am giving you vision of the path you are to follow. Always wait upon Me, for when you wait upon Me, I will give you strength to walk and not faint, to run and not grow weary. You will lift up your wings and soar like an Eagle.

Psalm 63:8 My soul follows close behind You; Your right hand upholds me.

Proverbs 21:21 He that follows after righteousness and mercy shall find life, righteousness, and honour.

You don’t need to forge ahead frantic and furious. Your future and My vision for your life will not come about through the sheer force of your effort. It is not by might or by power but by My Spirit. My Spirit operates through faith. I don’t want you captured by your calling; like a woman who turns all of her affection on her children and forsakes her husband. I am the One who longs for your affection. As you are nourished by your communion with Me, your calling will be fulfilled. Come with Me and rest. In resting you reveal your faith in Me. There is great power at work in those who believe and lean into Me.~ Jesus

Ephesians 1:19 and what is the immeasurable greatness of His power to us who believe, according to the working of His vast strength.

Song of Solomon 8:5 Who is this that comes up from the wilderness leaning on the one she loves?

I am releasing over you the Spirit of Adoption. I am giving you understanding and revelation that you are Mine. I have chosen you. By the Spirit of adoption you cry Abba Father. That cry is to Me as a baby’s cry to its mother. Like a tractor beam that draws Me to you.  I will supply your needs and fill your hungry mouth. I am setting you free from the bondage and struggle of trying to belong, to fit in or to feel needed. You are My chosen, My beloved. My glory will rest in your countenance because I have heard your cry to Me.~ God

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

Watch if you become weary, that you don’t isolate yourself from My Body. I’ve created you to belong and you are a necessary part of My church.  I know that you have felt rejected and  like you are not needed. But I have placed you and I have purpose for you. My purpose may not be understood or confirmed by others. But you are My Beloved and are of those who walk by faith and not by sight. You have been brought into My Family for My purposes to be accomplished through you. The weaknesses of others will strengthen your weaknesses. Lean into Me and not on your own understanding and trust that I am directing your path. I will continue the good work I have begun in you, until its completion. ~God

Ephesians 4:15-16 But speaking the truth in love, let us grow in every way into Him who is the head-Christ. From Him the whole body, fitted and knit together by every supporting ligament, promotes the growth of the body for building up itself in love by the proper working of each individual part.

I require your boundaries to surrender to Me. The “Never Agains” that you have vowed are melting beneath My Sovereignty. My love soothes over them until they are unnecessary and your fears are dissolved. You will look and wonder as you are unable to even recall those tender feelings. My healing will be complete. I am your Redeemer. I am doing a new thing now. Do you perceive it? My Seed of hope was planted within you and it is sprouting and growing towards My glory. Those who hope in Me will not be disappointed.~ Jesus

Hebrews 13:5-6 For He Himself has said, I will never leave you nor forsake you. Therefore we may boldly say: The Lord is my helper, I will not be afraid, What can man do to me?

Psalm 33:20-22 We wait for Yahweh, He is or help and shield. For our hearts rejoice in Him because we trust in His holy name. May Your faithful love rest on us, Yahweh, for we put our hope in You.

I have watched you make decisions for right or wrong like you are on a teeter totter. Some days up and some days down.  But there is always an internal battle for your heart. But I tell you today to count yourself dead to sin and alive to Me through Jesus. Stretch out your faith and balance on this one decision. Believe that you have crossed over from death to life and proclaim loudly “It is no longer I who live but Christ lives in me. The life I live in this body, I live by faith in the Son of God”!  My Son, Jesus, gave His life so that you could be free and live and live abundantly! You are a child of the Spirit and you walk by faith and not by sight. ~God

Romans 6:6 For we know that our old self was crucified with him so that the body ruled by sin might be done away with, that we should no longer be slaves to sin-because anyone who has died has been set free from sin.

Romans 7:24-25 What a wretched man I am! Who will rescue me from this body that is subject to death? Thanks be to God, who delivers me through Jesus Christ our Lord!

Romans 8:6 The mind governed by the flesh is death, but the mind governed by the Spirit is life and peace.
