You think it’s the same old day – think again. Open your heart and spirit to Me and see what I won’t do among you in this day.
Let the river of My presence flow through you bringing life wherever it is released and goes. Hearts that are tendered and ears tuned to My voice, being found inside willing vessels is a life I can use to touch others; to bring healing and wholeness. Will you be such a vessel?
I am here, poised to burst forth in your midst, waiting for the invitation to do so. Are you ready? Are you waiting in My presence – soaking, becoming saturated in the Water of Life that will bring forth what has been buried and dormant for a while? It is time!
Take My hand, don’t pull away; let me guide you down a way you have not been so you will not lose your way as you go. As a guide I know the best route, the danger zones to avoid, and the path of refreshing so the way is not too difficult. As you keep your hands in mine and off the controls, letting the force behind the movement be mine, there will be a pure flow and ease to what I am doing, nothing forced or made up, not concocted by man or tainted with pride. Many moves [of God] have ended when man took the controls steering it in a direction I was not going. Ready? Willing?
I’m calling you closer, closer to My heart. Come in abandonment before Me with no agenda and just let Me love you. Come hear My heart and the song I sing over you. Come closer, closer to My heart and know My great love for you, know my intents and plans, and let your heart be satisfied. Come closer, closer to My heart, My love.
How often do we rush right into our day, or projects, never giving the Lord a second thought or asking Him what He thinks about what we are planning to do; after all – we planned it so well? Do we ever feel that nudging nagging feeling inside – not knowing what it’s about; or have a fleeting thought that perhaps we should do something different but don’t want to entertain a change to our plans; and then trivialize or dismiss the feelings – only later to have regrets at not paying attention to the inner voice?
What if we were given the following challenge, would we accept it?
“Seek Me first in all you do; bring each task of your day before Me. Invite Me to give you fresh insights, to show you the best way to go about it, to move on your behalf, to give you favor before others. As you involve Me, be open to change your plans for I know better ways; sometimes it may mean abandoning your plan altogether when I know it will not be for your good. Learn to trust Me, that I have your best interest at heart, and know the will of the Father for your life. What may appear good, innocent, and acceptable, might just cause you to pull away from Me or get you so involved in other activities that you are not free, or able, to do those things that have far greater value and lasting eternal impact. Know that I see the big picture, not simply this moment in time. There are many things that captivate your heart and delight your senses, yet not all will truly satisfy; I know the differences and desire to guide you down the path to the ones that will deeply satisfy you. Nothing is too trivial to involve Me in, or too complicated for me to understand. Why not give it a try for 30 days, involve Me in everything, I’m certain you will be amazed.”
Seek Me and I will reveal myself to you. It is not the collective wisdom of the masses who determine who I am. I am who I am, and the Holy Spirit reveals who I am. What Holy Spirit reveals and sheds light upon is found in My word, the Bible: He (Holy Spirit) illuminates Me in it giving clarity and insight into the meaning of what is written. Think you know Me? Wait and see who I reveal myself to be as you seek Me with all your heart.
You are My heart’s desire, a treasure, one of great price which I willingly paid. Take my hand, let me show you the desire of my heart – do you see your reflection? All I have done – I have done for you, all with you on my mind. I extend my hand to you, a hand of love, of friendship, help, support, guidance and so much more. Take my hand; let me draw you in closer to Me, closer to my heart. Do you feel its beat, it beats for you, it beats with the tune of an intimate love song. Come let me lavish my love upon you and wrap you in My glory. Let me drape you in love and kindness, grace and mercy. Let me fill you with peace and joy unspeakable. Let me put my mark upon you that all the world will know you are mine, that you are My beloved.
My Child, I hear your voice filled with praise. Come closer, let me look upon you, you are the delight of My heart. I enjoy these times together when you are not rushing off into your day, but take time to talk with Me. Pause now and hear My voice, I love you, I desired and planned for you from the very beginning. I have special plans for you, you are my special child, unique in your ways, you are one of a kind. You touch and impact lives in ways others cannot. The world, your family, your church and your community need your unique set of gifts, calling and equipping, just as you need theirs. You were meant to need each other, to be as one family, one church, one body. In this you more fully reflect My multiple facets to the world. You were also meant to live life with Me, not apart, so I am thrilled when you are still and turn your thoughts, desires and affection towards Me, longing to know My ways, My thoughts, My desires, My heart. There is a lifetime of knowing, growing and learning open to you, there is no final degrees, no BA, Masters or PHD. What you gain does not end at your last breath, it’s good for eternity. Come, be still, sit a while with Me and know Me.
Hold on, I’m calling you. Are you ready? I sense an excitement within you, a longing, a desire, all for Me. When you’re ready to step out from where you are there is more than you have imagined waiting and I’ll be there to go with you into the new adventures of life, whether it be in your own neighborhood or beyond. It just takes a willing heart and feet. You won’t regret saying yes, granted it may not be all thrills and easy, but will be worth it. You were meant for more than an ordinary life, the more comes when you join in co-labor with Me. Doors and windows will open you have not seen before, divine encounters and opportunities await you. Trust me, take my hand, let’s begin – one step, one yes, at a time.
