Be the first to do good. Do it because you love Me. I am willing that you set aside your pride and stubbornness and be the first to extend love and peace and kindness to others. You can begin this by speaking the things you believe for others out of your mouth. Thank Me for those things even before they come to pass. Begin to look for the new growth and will it forward in your faith. Love never fails. Do LOVE not for a return but because you believe in a city to come. Before you realize it, love will change you. You will love loving instead of love lacking. ~Jesus

Proverbs 18:20 From the fruit of his mouth a man’s stomach is satisfied; he is filled with the product of his lips.

Hebrews 13:12-14 Therefore Jesus also suffered outside the gate, so that He might sanctify the people by His own blood. Let us then go to Him outside the camp, bearing His disgrace. For we do not have an enduring city here; instead, we seek the one to come.

As you have confessed, I have taken your sins into My body. It is as if you have placed them in a whirlpool and they have flushed down and out of your life as the water swirled. But in this exchange you have received more than you have understood.  You have received My righteousness, not only forgiveness for your sins, but I have imparted to you My standing with the Father.  The Water that flushed you clean, I have also given you to drink. In this I am committing to you the WORD of reconciliation and an understanding in your heart, that old things have passed away. You will now behold that new things have come. Not just in your mind and imagination, but in your belly and reality. I am opening your eyes to see My love and to feel My love for you and you will begin to live now, compelled by this love that I reveal to you. ~Jesus

2 Corinthians 5: 14-15 For the love of Christ controls us, having concluded this, that one died for all, therefore all died;  and He died for all, so that they who live might no longer live for themselves, but for Him who died and rose again on their behalf.

2 Corinthians 5: 17-19Therefore if anyone is in Christ, he is a new creature; the old things passed away; behold, new things have come.  Now all these things are from God, who reconciled us to Himself through Christ and gave us the ministry of reconciliation, namely, that God was in Christ reconciling the world to Himself, not counting their trespasses against them, and He has committed to us the word of reconciliation.

2 Corinthians 5:21 He made Him who knew no sin to be sin on our behalf, so that we might become the righteousness of God in Him.

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.

I have created you to have purpose and to know who you are to Me. But so often you look to others or to your performance to tell you who you are. There is danger in this. You have an idea of what you want to be, and you begin to act in a way that will cause people to respond in approval, yet you are becoming untrue to Me. People and things have become idols in your life, and you are serving for their reactions instead of believing what I have said about you. I am asking you to come away from those things and admit that they can’t give you what you are looking for. After your confession, I want you to ask Me who you are to Me and be still long enough for Me to instruct you in the way you should go. For you are MY workmanship, created in Me to do good works that have already been prepared for you.

~God

Colossians 3:10 and having put on the new self. You are being renewed in knowledge according to the image of your Creator.

Ecclesiastes 4:4 Then I saw that all toil and all skill in work come from a man’s envy of his neighbor. This also is vanity and a striving after wind.

Isaiah 45:18 For this is what the Lord says- God is the Creator of the heavens. He formed the earth and made it. He established it; He did not create it to be empty, but formed it to be inhabited- “I am Yahweh, and there is no other.”

Remember to set you mind on things above and not on striving to make your way on Earth.  When you have done all you know to do, and stand at the end of yourself, then My hope will arise. Come quickly to this place for I wait eagerly for you to arrive.  I have plans for your life, that your mind is not able to understand. Your reasonings and your doubts hinder your progress. I am as a rocket-ship that will take you to the moon. I only need you to step inside and lean back.  Come child-like and believe, for all things are possible for those who believe.

Colossians 3:1-4 Since, then, you have been raised with Christ, set your hearts on things above, where Christ is seated at the right hand of God. Set your mind on things above, not on earthly things. For you died, and your life is now hidden with Christ in God. When Christ, who is your life, appears, then you also will appear with Him in glory.

Mark 9:23 “If you can’?” said Jesus. “Everything is possible for one who believes.”

Luke 1:45 Blessed is she who have believed that the Lord would fulfill His promises to her.

Do you hear My Voice? I am speaking in a whisper, after the mighty wind, the earthquake and the fire.  After you have been burned, shaken and disappointed by others. After your bitterness and unforgiveness; I am the Voice that tells you to love again, to love anyway. I am the whisper in your heart that reminds you that you weren’t destroyed by what you most feared. I Am the Voice that strengthens what remains. I say to you “Arise My love and come”  He who overcomes I will give the crown of life. You can love again. Love never fails.~ God

James 1:12  A man who endures trials is blessed, because when he passes the test he will receive the crown of life that God has promised to those who love Him.

1 Kings 19  At that moment, the Lord passed by. A great and mighty wind was tearing at the mountains and was shattering cliffs before the Lord, but the Lord was not in the wind. After the wind there was an earthquake, but the Lord was not in the earthquake. After the earthquake there was a fire, but the Lord was not in the fire. And after the fire there was a voice, a soft whisper.

I bring you to the place at the end of yourself. The place where you don’t know what to do. I bring you here and ask you to wait for a time. You remind Me of My caterpillars squirming before I wrap them in their silks. I feel your desire to flee and your overwhelming desire to JUST DO something, but I am asking you to be still.  I want you to understand that you do not have the power to do what needs doing. You can’t change these circumstances.  I have called you to be still. Being still requires great faith. I ask you, here in your stillness, “have you placed your hope in Me?”  Hope in Me is beyond what you can do and know and see. As you are waiting here there are things I have to teach you. One thing for you to learn- is that nothing in all creation can separate you from My love. Another thing- is that in your union with My Son, you will rise above all circumstances. Nothing can keep you down because there is no greater power than Jesus. In your waiting, you, just like My caterpillars, are being transformed. Do you believe Me for things greater than you can hear or see or that your mind can conceive? These greater things, are the things I have for you! God

Romans 8:10,11 But if Christ is in you, then even though your body is subject to death because of sin, the Spirit gives life because of righteousness. And if the Spirit of Him who raised Jesus from the dead is living in you, He who raised Christ from the dead will also give life to your mortal bodies because of His Spirit who lives in you.

Romans 8:18 I consider that our present sufferings are not worth comparing with the glory that will be revealed in us.

Romans 8:24 For in this hope we were saved. But hope that is seen is no hope at all. Who hopes for what they already have?

Romans 8:37-38 No, in all these things we are more than conquerors through Him who loved us. For I am convinced that neither death nor life, neither angels nor demons, neither the present nor the future, nor any powers, neither height nor depth, nor anything else in all creation, will be able to separate us from the love of God that is in Christ Jesus our Lord!

2 Cor 3:18 And we all, who with unveiled faces contemplate the Lord’s glory, are being transformed into His image with ever increasing glory, which comes from the Lord, who is the Spirit.

2 Cor 3:17 Now the Lord is the Spirit, and where the Spirit of the Lord is, there is freedom.
