In My eyes I see all that is going on. Do you want to know what I see in you? I see My finished work. I see My Son covering you. I see faithfulness and decisions to press on in My work when other choices might please the demands of your flesh. Others might do more in My kingdom, but that is not the point. Are you faithful and submitted to doing what I ask of you? Fasting, tithing, interceding for others, loving the unlovable and undeserving, giving up your rights before Me, putting others ahead of you in your mind and deed, serving in ways that others are not aware. Yes, can you do things, so no one notices, and you are not aware of their eternal value before Me? Is your decision to be obedient to My Word and Spirit made quickly without hesitation? Is it done without even thinking about it, like Rachel drawing more water out of the well for Abraham’s camels as the slave had made in to a sign for guidance? Was it in her nature to serve and bless others? She was not perfect, as she later joined in the deception of her husband in favoring her chosen son. Yes, My Spirit graced her so that she would do the right thing, but she said yes to My Spirit’s leading.
Can you love as I love you? Yes, with My help. I responded to people’s needs, knowing the Father’s love for the people He created. I didn’t just heal them physically or meet their physical needs without addressing their need for a Savior. Many believed in Me especially after My resurrection. How long could you live without contact with others? How long could you live without My contact? I created man to be with Me and others.
My Word goes forth in power to accomplish what I purpose. I reward those who seek after Me with My Presence. You will see Me at work today in the lives of people. Speak My Word of comfort, love, correction. You are imperfect, but I am perfect. Your heart is willing, but your flesh is weak.
Now is the time of My favor. I do have a plan for you and you are walking in it. Build up and not tear down. Rescue the weak. Speak truth with love. If God is for us who can be against us? Does it matter what you believe? Or Who you believe in? Put your trust in the God Who doesn’t change. Claim His promises as your own. Believe and receive from My hand.
My Name will be glorified in My people as they do My will. Who is he who loves Me? It is he who does My commands and obeys Me. The fear of the Lord is the beginning of wisdom. He honors Me and seeks after Me in all that he does. My Word is precious to him. He digs after the truth. He wants to know Me. He recognizes when I work with him, along side him, through him. O how much more can we accomplish! The people rise up to praise Me! They recall My miracles, My deeds of old. They think of My goodness.
In You I find my strength. Whom have I in heaven but You? You caused me to hunger for You, to seek after You, to read Your Word, to find You. You poured out Your Holy Spirit upon me and gave me joy, peace, love and purpose. You directed my steps in wonderful ways and gave me friends from your body the church. All of these things were gifts from You. All praise be to God and His Son Jesus.
Keep a guard over your heart and mind to keep your thoughts pure before Me. I am a jealous God.
What motivates you to give of yourself to Me and to others? Is it love and gratitude for what I have done and am doing for you? Is it because My Word commands you? Is it My Spirit directing you? Is it responding to the needs of others? All of these answers are right, but the greatest and most important is love. Without love all serving is shallow and empty, self-serving to be noticed, full of hypocrisy. Be at peace and allow Me to give you My love for others. Love never expects or demands others to respond.
Look for Me today in the people you see. Listen for My Spirit and follow His leading. You will be a blessing. Give of yourself. I will cover you and shield you. Guard over your mind with all diligence, for it is the wellspring of life.
Declare My Word in the spiritual realm. Speak it boldly. My Word is truth and life. I am not a liar, I will defend My Word. In all things give Me praise and I will be lifted up. Declare aloud the truth you know. My Spirit will shine in you as a beacon of light in the dark places. There is no other beside Me. I alone am God, the Creator of all that exists.
Many will say on that day, I knew You, but in reality they only knew of Me and refused to put their faith in My Son. They refused to believe for salvation. They rejected My Lordship over their lives. They will find out too late Who I Am. Wake them up if you can.
Come follow Me and I will fill you with joy. My words to you will bring life and healing. This is My commandment that you love one another as I have loved you. Can you do this for Me? Yes, you can try and I will give you grace to do more than you could do alone. Love is a decision to show love, compassion, sympathy, kindness, slowing down to notice, touching. How do you receive love? Then do so to others.
No man is an island, wanting to be alone always. I did not make him that way. Perhaps he has been hurt deeply and so he is protecting himself from further hurt, but he craves real love to overcome his hurt. He will go insane alone, left to his own thoughts and ways. In him is a hunger for Me, to know Me, to receive My love. My love goes out through My people to the downcast and hurting. People on the street corners begging are working, pleading, acting, receiving, taking their shift. They know how much they will need for the day. They don’t save up, they consume.
