Be the first to do good. Do it because you love Me. I desire 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.

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?

Unbelief is a substance. It will cover you, but it will not go into your belly and meet your needs. Believing is a substance that is able to fill you; for I am the bread of life. Doubt is when you see both unbelief and belief and won’t decide which to take. Don’t waver between two opinions. Doubt makes you a double minded person, who is unstable, and wavering. Decide today to believe in Me. Taste and see that I am good. I Am the God of More Than Enough! Come to Me, come to My throne. You think you have nothing to bring Me, but I see your longing and the hunger of your soul. Bring these to Me for they are of great worth in My sight. Ask Me to fill you and to satisfy you. Blessed are the poor in spirit for the kingdom of heaven is theirs.

Hebrews 4:7 Today if you hear His voice, do not harden your hearts.

John 16:24 Until now you have asked for nothing in My name. Ask and you will receive, so that your joy may be complete.

I feel you demanding that I pick you up, demanding to feel My Presence. I see your anger and feel your frustrations. I see you child. Walk confidently beside Me. I have not left you and I never will. I am teaching you to walk by faith, not by what you feel or think. But to trust Me and put one foot in front of the other. It is one thing to believe Me, and another to trust Me. Trusting Me is doing what you believe. Be at peace here beside Me and know that I will help you walk. There is a place of choice in every moment. In this place of choice, there are two teachers, one teacher is your human nature, and one teacher is My Holy Spirit. Human nature teaches you to rely on your emotions, feelings and thoughts and will bring about loss and death. My Spirit, teaches you to rise above these emotions, feelings and thoughts and to live according to My will.  Today I want you to make a conscious choice to walk in the Spirit and reject thoughts of depression, self pity and anger. When you feel these things confess them as part of your sinful nature and I will give you life and direction  in their place and allow you to have peace.

2 Corinthians 5:7 For we live by faith, not by sight.

Zechariah 4:6 Not by might nor by power, but by My Spirit, says the Lord Almighty.

Psalm 131:2 But I have calmed and quieted myself, I am like a weaned child with its mother; like a weaned child I am content.
