I will fight for you. You will hold your peace. Nothing in all creation can ever separate you from Me. I know you fully. I know how you look at Me and see your earthly father and mother and doubt because they disappointed you.  I want you to grieve those disappointments and recognize those hurts, but then I want you to come to Our secret place and feel My strength for you. The old has passed away now and the new has come.  I have a hope and a future for you. Plans to prosper you and not to harm you. I want you to stop trying to make people into what you think you need. I will drive. You can rest and look at the countryside and believe that I am taking you to heavenly places.~Jesus

Romans 8:6 For the mind set of the flesh is death, but the mind-set of the Spirit is life and peace.

See to it that you are not taken captive by the deceitfulness of sin, which so easily entangles. There are things that attempt to lure you away from your devotion to Me. Things that are good for food and pleasing to your eyes, even things you do in service to Me. I don’t want you conformed to this world. I want your mind transformed and renewed so that you may know what My perfect will is. Ask of Me and I will give you eyes that see and ears that hear what My Spirit says. I want you to consider My Kingdom coming as more important. As you make this decision, this consideration, you are counting  or considering yourself dead to sin but alive to Me.

Luke 9:23 Then He said to them all, “If anyone wants to come with Me, he must deny himself, take up his cross daily, and follow Me.

Luke 9:24 For whoever wants to save his life will lose it, but whoever loses his live because of Me will save it.
