A Real Life

The path of the sinner is unknown to him. He doesn’t believe his destination, that of Hell, therefore he ‘knows’ he is not headed there. And so he ‘tries’ different pursuits, if they ‘feel’ right, and continues as long as no obstacle blocks his way–come what may. He is often a ‘victim,’ in dismay, of what ‘life has dealt him’–many say.

Child’s play

“There is a way which seems right to a man, but its end is the way to death.” Proverbs 16:25

Are you ready for a real life? One that holds plan and purpose? I know the beginning and the end and My plan for you to see, is where you enter in.

When we begin–you’ll see!

“Enter by the narrow gate; for the gate is wide and the way is easy, that leads to destruction, and those who enter by it are many. For the gate is narrow and the way is hard that leads to life, and those who find it are few.” Matthew 7:13-14

It is so much more, your life I’ve prepared, than an escape from Hell; it was designed, with you in mind, before the day you were born!

“Thy eyes beheld my unformed substance; in thy book were written, every one of them, the days that were formed for me, when as yet there was none of them.” Psalms 139:16

You are My legacy–

The children I left behind and I cherish each of you. A good man leaves an inheritance to his children’s children–how much more have I left for you?

“I came from the Father and have come into the world; again, I am leaving the world and going to the Father.” John 16:28

“A good man leaves an inheritance to his children’s children, but the sinner’s wealth is laid up for the righteous.” Proverbs 13:22

“A righteous man who walks in his integrity–blessed are his sons after him!” Proverbs 20:7

I had you in mind, when I designed the end of all time–the legacy of My Life given. Traced through My Blood, an endless genealogy, many like you, but they are not you. I had you in mind, from the beginning of time, with a purpose for only you!

You can waste life, choose to be left behind, or seek Me to see this plan through.

“Seek the Lord while he may be found, call upon him while he is near; let the wicked forsake his way, and the unrighteous man his thoughts; let him return to the Lord, that he may have mercy on him, and to our God, for he will abundantly pardon. For my thoughts are not your thoughts, neither are your ways my ways, says the Lord.” Isaiah 55:6-8

“Ask, and it will be given you; seek, and you will find; knock, and it will be opened to you. For every one who asks receives, and he who seeks finds, and to him who knocks it will be opened.” Matthew 7:7-8

Come, see your life through My Eyes–see your life given.

For the One who gave did not stay in the grave, and neither should My plan for you!

“Listen to advice and accept instruction, that you may gain wisdom for the future. Many are the plans in the mind of a man, but it is the purpose of the Lord that will be established.” Proverbs 19:20-21

“The Lord is my chosen portion and my cup; thou holdest my lot. The lines have fallen for me in pleasant places; yea, I have a goodly heritage. I bless the Lord who gives me counsel; in the night also my heart instructs me. I keep the Lord always before me; because he is at my right hand, I shall not be moved. Therefore my heart is glad, and my soul rejoices; my body also dwells secure. For thou dost not give me up to Sheol, or let thy godly one see the Pit. Thou dost show me the path of life; in thy presence there is fulness of joy, in thy right hand are pleasures for evermore.” Psalms 16:5-11

“Blessed is every one who fears the Lord, who walks in his ways! You shall eat the fruit of the labor of your hands; you shall be happy, and it shall be well with you. Psalms 128:1-2

“Not every one who says to me, ‘Lord, Lord,’ shall enter the kingdom of heaven, but he who does the will of my Father who is in heaven.” Matthew 7:21

 

 

Lifetime Guaranteed

The night is far spent, let all men repent, and see Me for who I truly AM–your Deliverance!

“He has delivered us from the dominion of darkness and transferred us to the kingdom of his beloved Son, in whom we have redemption, the forgiveness of sins.” Colossians 1:13-14

The scapegoat was sent out of the camp to carry the sins away.

“But the goat, on which the lot fell to be the scapegoat, shall be presented alive before the Lord, to make an atonement with him, and to let him go for a scapegoat into the wilderness.” Leviticus 16:10 KJV

I was made to be sin, that you may know no sin…

as if it had never been.

Do you believe?

Then receive.

Understand that you do not carry the sin any longer–I do.

“And you, who once were estranged and hostile in mind, doing evil deeds, he has now reconciled in his body of flesh by his death, in order to present you holy and blameless and irreproachable before him–” Colossians 1:21-22

The sin of the world was laid upon Me, in exchange–

My Blood

“He entered once for all into the Holy Place, taking not the blood of goats and calves but his own blood, thus securing an eternal redemption.” Hebrews 9:12

“In him we have redemption through his blood, the forgiveness of our trespasses, according to the riches of his grace which he lavished upon us.” Ephesians 1:7-8

So easy for you to do and yet so many fear the exchange, think it strange, and simply turn away. That is simple too–to turn away; to live your life as if I never was. Your pride becomes your cause, with a will stronger than what binds. But when that day comes–when fear strikes your heart–that ending part, yes, the hard part…

Your knee will bow and pride will fall, as you confess–your life a mess. Without Me there’s no future. Without Me, no life-long dream–all gone.

Turn around. Look at Me.

There’s nothing to fear, and I’m still here. Simply repent, for the night is far spent. A simple exchange–Lifetime guaranteed!

“Turn to me and be saved, all the ends of the earth! For I am God, and there is no other. By myself I have sworn, from my mouth has gone forth in righteousness a word that shall not return: ‘To me every knee shall bow, every tongue shall swear.’ “Only in the Lord, it shall be said of me, are righteousness and strength; to him shall come and be ashamed, all who were incensed against him.”” Isaiah 45:22-24

“Truly no man can ransom himself, or give to God the price of his life, for the ransom of his life is costly, and can never suffice, that he should continue to live on for ever, and never see the Pit.” Psalms 49:7-9

“And this is the testimony, that God gave us eternal life, and this life is in his Son. He who has the Son has life; he who has not the Son of God has not life.” I John 4:11-12

“And just as it is appointed for men to die once, and after that comes judgment, so Christ, having been offered once to bear the sins of many, will appear a second time, not to deal with sin but to save those who are eagerly waiting for him.” Hebrews 9:27-28

“See that you do not refuse him who is speaking. For if they did not escape when they refused him who warned them on earth, much less shall we escape if we reject him who warns from heaven. His voice then shook the earth; but now he has promised, “Yet once more I will shake not only the earth but also the heaven.”” This phrase, “Yet once more,” indicates the removal of what is shaken, as of what has been made, in order that what cannot be shaken may remain. Therefore let us be grateful for receiving a kingdom that cannot be shaken, and thus let us offer to God acceptable worship, with reverence and awe; for our God is a consuming fire.” Hebrews 12:25-29

“Because he cleaves to me in love, I will deliver him; I will protect him, because he knows my name. When he calls to me, I will answer him; I will be with him in trouble, I will rescue him and honor him. With long life I will satisfy him, and show him my salvation.” Psalms 91:14-16

“No one who denies the Son has the Father. He who confesses the Son has the Father also. Let what you heard from the beginning abide in you. If what you heard from the beginning abides in you, then you will abide in the Son and in the Father. And this is what he has promised us, eternal life.” I John 2:23-25

 

 

If You Believe

Deliverance is not an option, it is a command; for My people must be free to do the work that I have called them to do.

A Bride without spot or blemish begins as a Bride set free

Her needs are met, she has no regret, for her True Love is her first love and it is there that her heart remains.

You see I knew you before and I loved you then, and I never let go–once we begin. I command that you walk the sin-free life; put an end to all bitterness and strife, and see Me for who I truly AM–

Savior, Husband, King and Friend

I share the throne with no other god. And if you toil and fuss you have lost trust, and are serving another it’s true.

I bind no one, but know no bounds. I bring no fear, but deliverance is here; for My Beloved must walk as I walked. I delivered and healed and maintain this still, for those who will wait upon Me. I bring new life, put an end to strife and those who are anxious will see…

My Peace that I gave, did not end at the grave, but is offered to all who’ll receive…

If you believe

“Thus says the Lord, the King of Israel and his Redeemer, the Lord of hosts: ‘I am the first and I am the last; besides me there is no god.'” Isaiah 44:6

“And behold, a woman who had suffered from a hemorrhage for twelve years came up behind him and touched the fringe of his garment; for she said to herself, “If I only touch his garment, I shall be made well.” Jesus turned, and seeing her he said, “Take heart, daughter; your faith has made you well.” And instantly the woman was made well.” Matthew 9:20-22

“As they were going away, behold, a dumb demoniac was brought to him and when the demon had been cast out, the dumb man spoke; and the crowds marveled, saying, “Never was anything like this seen in Israel.'” Matthew 9:32-33

“And Jesus went about all the cities and villages, teaching in their synagogues and preaching the gospel of the kingdom, and healing every disease and every infirmity.” Matthew 9:35

“And great crowds came to him, bringing with them the lame, the maimed, the blind, the dumb, and many others, and they put them at his feet, and he healed them, so that the throng wondered, when they saw the dumb speaking, the maimed whole, the lame walking, and the blind seeing; and they glorified the God of Israel.” Matthew 15:30-31

“Husbands love your wives, as Christ loved the church and gave himself up for her, that he might sanctify her, having cleansed her by the washing of water with the word, that he might present the church to himself in splendor, without spot or wrinkle or any such thing, that she might be holy and without blemish.” Ephesians 5:25-27

“No one born of God commits sin; for God’s nature abides in him, and he cannot sin because he is born of God. By this it may be seen who are the children of God, and who are the children of the devil: whoever does not do right is not of God, nor he who does not love his brother.” I John 3:9-10

“But the day of the Lord will come like a thief, and then the heavens will pass away with a loud noise, and the elements will be dissolved with fire, and the earth and the works that are upon it will be burned up. Since all these things are thus to be dissolved, what sort of persons ought you to be in lives of holiness and godliness, waiting for and hastening the coming of the day of God, because of which the heavens will be kindled and dissolved and the elements will melt with fire! But according to his promise we wait for new heavens and a new earth in which righteousness dwells. Therefore, beloved, since you wait for these, be zealous to be found by him without spot or blemish, and at peace.” II Peter 3:10-14

“Who is wise and understanding among you? By his good life let him show his works in the meekness of wisdom. But if you have bitter jealousy and selfish ambition in your hearts, do not boast and be false to the truth. This wisdom is not such as comes down from above, but is earthly, unspiritual, devilish. For where jealousy and selfish ambition exists, there will be disorder and every vile practice. But the wisdom from above is first pure, then peaceable, gentle, open to reason, full of mercy and good fruits, without uncertainty or insincerity. And the harvest of righteousness is sown in peace by those who make peace.” James 3:13-18

“Jesus said to her, ‘I am the resurrection and the life; he who believes in me, though he die, yet shall he live, and whoever lives and believes in me shall never die. Do you believe this?'” John 11:25-26

 

 

True Treasure

Every man has a different measure for their treasure. To one a treasure is their things; to another only heartache this will bring. It’s not about the treasure, but the condition of your heart. For where your treasure is, there your heart will be.

If you doubt this, test it and see…

Release what you have–are you still glad, or has it brought heartache to thee?

Your heart will reveal what pleasures it still and this, your true treasure, you’ll see. Be it for yourself, a gift for someone else, or…

if that true treasure is Me.

Come, follow Me

For I Am a True Treasure of delights. My Kingdom is near–in plain sight, for those who have eyes to see.

Examine your heart, be honest from the start, when you offer your sacrifice to Me. For that is true treasure, your heart is your pleasure–the gift you offer to Me. I take this, your treasure, it brings Me great pleasure, to exchange it–My Life for thee!

Every man has a different measure for their treasure

You are My treasure, but am I truly yours? Examine your life, for it is but a vapor in time. For where your treasure is, there will your heart also be.

Come, follow Me

I AM True Treasure, given without measure. Try to measure and see…

I AM so vast it cannot be–no one can measure Me!

“Do not lay up for yourselves treasures on earth, where moth and rust consume and where thieves break in and steal, but lay up for yourselves treasures in heaven, where neither moth nor rust consumes and where thieves do not break in and steal. For where your treasure is, there will your heart be also.” Matthew 6:19-21

To me, though I am the very least of all the saints, this grace was given, to preach to the Gentiles the unsearchable riches of Christ, and to make all men see what is the plan of the mystery hidden for ages in God who created all things; that through the church the manifold wisdom of God might now be made known to the principalities and powers in the heavenly places. This was according to the eternal purpose which he has realized in Christ Jesus our Lord, in whom we have boldness and confidence of access through our faith in him.” Ephesians 3:7-12

“Whereas ye know not what shall be on the morrow. For what is your life? It is even a vapour, that appeareth for a little time, and then vanisheth away.” James 4:14 KJV

“And there will be signs in sun and moon and stars, and upon the earth distress of nations in perplexity, at the roaring of the sea and the waves, men fainting with fear and with foreboding of what is coming on the world; for the powers of the heavens will be shaken. And then they will see the Son of man coming in a cloud with power and great glory. Now when these things begin to take place, look up and raise your heads, because your redemption is drawing near.” Luke 21:25-28

“And he told them a parable; ‘Look at the fig tree, and all the trees; as soon as they come out in leaf, you see for yourselves and know that the summer is already near. So also, when you see these things taking place, you know that the kingdom of God is near. Truly, I say to you, this generation will not pass away till all has taken place. Heaven and earth will pass away, but my words will not pass away.'” Luke 21:29-33

“He who loves father or mother more than me is not worthy of me; and he who loves son or daughter more than me is not worthy of me; and he who does not take his cross and follow me is not worthy of me.

“Be patient, therefore, brethren, until the coming of the Lord. Behold, the farmer waits for the precious fruit of the earth, being patient over it until it receives the early and the late rain.

Do not grumble, brethren, against one another, that you may not be judged; behold, the Judge is standing at the doors.” James 5:7-9

“Again, the kingdom of heaven is like a merchant in search of fine pearls, who, on finding one pearl of great value, went and sold all that he had and bought it.” Matthew 13:45

 

 

Your Spoken Harvest

The battle is hard and long when you’ve spoken words that are wrong, and planted seeds of disrespect. Words strengthen and bring life or words attack and bind; of which do you choose to speak? Which would you prefer to be said of you?

Do as you would have others do

For what you give will be given unto you, therefore, plant for a harvest of love.

If you speak richly to another, their life will be filled; they in turn will have much to give others, and the fruit you then harvest will be sweet.

Always when you have a need, look to another to plant a seed. When you then meet the need of another, your deed will bless a brother, and your own need will be met as well. Take no thought for your own want, for that is what I have in mind. Rather, be kind and you will soon find, that sweet words are all that you tell.

You choose the feast–

Words that are sweet or harvest yet a bitter pill. For if the words that you find are unkind, likely, you’re speaking them still. The spoken word is your planted seed–

Speak for a harvest you’d rather receive

“Do not be deceived; God is not mocked, for whatever a man sows, that he will also reap. For he who sows to his own flesh will from the flesh reap corruption; but he who sows to the Spirit will from the Spirit reap eternal life. And let us not grow weary in well-doing, for in due season we shall reap, if we do not lose heart. So then, as we have opportunity, let us do good to all men, and especially to those who are of the household of faith.” Galatians 6:7-10

“Therefore be imitators of God, as beloved children. And walk in love, as Christ loved us and gave himself up for us, a fragrant offering and sacrifice to God.” Ephesians 5:1-2

“For ‘He that would love life and see good days, let him keep his tongue from evil and his lips from speaking guile; let him turn away from evil and do right; let him seek peace and pursue it.'” I Peter 3:10-11

“Above all hold unfailing your love for one another, since love covers a multitude of sins. Practice hospitality ungrudgingly to one another. As each has received a gift employ it for one another, as good stewards of God’s varied grace; whoever speaks, as one who utters oracles of God; whoever renders service, as one who renders it by the strength which God supplies; in order that in everything God may be glorified through Jesus Christ. To him belong glory and dominion for ever and ever. Amen.” I Peter 4:8-11

“Beloved, let us love one another; for love is of God, and he who loves is born of God and knows God. He who does not love does not know God; for God is love.” I John 4:7-8

“And it is my prayer that your love may abound more and more, with knowledge and all discernment, so that you may approve what is excellent, and may be pure and blameless for the day of Christ, filled with the fruits of righteousness which come through Jesus Christ, to the glory and praise of God.” Philippians 1:9-11

“So whatever you wish that men would do to you, do so to them; for this is the law of the prophets.” Matthew 7:12

“If you keep my commandments, you will abide in my love, just as I have kept my Father’s commandments and abide in his love. These things I have spoken to you, that my joy may be in you, and that your joy may be full. ‘This is my commandment, that you love one another as I have loved you. Greater love has no man than this, that a man lay down his life for his friends. You are my friends if you do what I command you.'” John 15:10-14

“Sow for yourselves righteousness, reap the fruit of steadfast love; break up your fallow ground, for it is the time to seek the Lord, that he may come and rain salvation upon you.” Hosea 10:12

 

 

Love

Eat what you love–give what you eat

For this is the basic rule of life. All flesh give of what they receive. What you love is what you will be and it will be evident in the words you speak; take in kind words and kind words will come out.

If you wish to change a harsh personality–take in more love and you will have love to give

To thirst for evil, and thereby eating it through your eyes and ears, you will then give it through your mouth and actions.

Guard your eyes.

Guard your ears.

Eat what you love, but make love your aim…

  • Eat it to give love
  • Eat it to live love
  • Be loved to be love
  • Be love, Beloved, be love

For I AM Love!

Learn of Me–eat of Me to truly live. Truly love to truly give–For this, My Beloved, is the basic rule of life

LOVE

“I am the living bread which came down from heaven; if any one eats of this bread, he will live for ever; and the bread which I shall give for the life of the world is my flesh.” John 6:51

“See what love the Father has given us, that we should be called children of God; and so we are. The reason why the world does not know us is that it did not know him. Beloved, we are God’s children now; it does not yet appear what we shall be, but we know that when he appears we shall be like him, for we shall see him as he is. And every one who thus hopes in him purifies himself as he is pure.” I John 3:1-3

“As the living Father sent me, and I live because of the Father, so he who eats me will live because of me.” John 5:57

“I appeal to you therefore brethren, by the mercies of God, to present your bodies as a living sacrifice, holy and acceptable to God, which is your spiritual worship. Do not be conformed to this world but be transformed by the renewal of your mind, that you may prove what is the will of God, what is good and acceptable and perfect.” Romans 12:1-2

“This is how one should regard us, as servants of Christ and stewards of the mysteries of God. Moreover it is required of stewards that they be found trustworthy.” I Corinthians 4:1-2

“Let love be genuine; hate what is evil, hold fast to what is good; love one another with brotherly affection; outdo one another in showing honor.” Romans 12:9-10

“–I will walk with integrity of heart within my house; I will not set before my eyes anything that is base. I hate the work of those who fall away; it shall not cleave to me. Perverseness of heart shall be far from me; I will know nothing of evil. Him who slanders his neighbor secretly I will destroy. The man of haughty looks and arrogant heart I will not endure. I will look with favor on the faithful in the land, that they may dwell with me; he who walks in the way that is blameless shall minister to me.” Psalms 101:2b-6

“Love is patient and kind; love is not jealous or boastful; it is not arrogant or rude. Love does not insist on its own way; it is not irritable or resentful; it does not rejoice at wrong, but rejoices in the right. Love bears all things, believes all things, hopes all things, endures all things.” I Corinthians 13:4-7

“A new commandment I give to you, that you love one another; even as I have loved you, that you also love one another. By this all men will know that you are my disciples, if you have love for one another.” John 13:34-35

“Make love your aim, and earnestly desire the spiritual gifts, especially that you may prophesy.” I Corinthians 14:1

“–Those who were not my people I will call ‘my people,’ and her who was not beloved I will call ‘my beloved.'” Romans 9:25

 

 

Reaching Today

As this new day unfolds, the promise of tomorrow holds,

Today

Don’t lose this day, as you look for tomorrow. Don’t lose today, holding on to sorrow…

from yesterday–

Today

For in it contains–

  • The promise of tomorrow
  • The sweetness of lost sorrow
  • The message of tomorrow

Today

Come today, to the brook that you find.

Come today, to the table and dine.

Come to Me today, while this is yet a new day

Come Today

“Come now, you who say, “Today or tomorrow we will go into such and such a town and spend a year there and trade and get gain”; whereas you do not know about tomorrow. What is your life? For you are a mist that appears for a little time and then vanishes.” James 4:13-14

“Therefore do not be anxious about tomorrow, for tomorrow will be anxious for itself. Let the day’s own trouble be sufficient for the day.” Matthew 6:34

“Behold, I stand at the door and knock; if any one hears my voice and opens the door, I will come in to him and eat with him, and he with me.” Revelation 3:20

“Thou preparest a table before me in the presence of my enemies; thou anointest my head with oil, my cup overflows.” Psalms 23:5

 

 

The Whole Measure

Measure by measure your faith is made whole. You have been given a measure of faith and, yes, it can move a mountain, but faith comes by hearing and hearing increases your measure.

“–For truly, I say to you, if you have faith as a grain of mustard seed, you will say to this mountain, ‘Move hence to yonder place,’ and it will move; and nothing will be impossible to you.” Matthew 17:20-21

“And Jesus answered them, ‘Truly, I say to you, if you have faith and never doubt, you will not only do what has been done to the fig tree, but even if you say to this mountain, ‘Be taken up and cast into the sea,’ it will be done. And whatever you ask in prayer, you will receive, if you have faith.'” Matthew 21:21-22

Measure by measure the more you hear, the more it becomes clear and, the more you draw near, the more measure will be given.

Wholeness–A complete picture

Wholeness–A deeper understanding

Measure by measure a heart will mend; when given a full measure as one learns to depend–on the one who gave it all.

If good measure, shaken together, and running over shall be given to you by men when you give–

“Give, and it shall be given unto you; good measure, pressed down, and shaken together, and running over, shall men give into your bosom. For with the same measure that ye mete withal it shall be measured to you again.” St. Luke 6:38 KJV

How much more?

How much more!

When you give your ear to Me.

“But he answered, ‘It is written, ‘Man shall not live by bread alone, but by every word that proceeds from the mouth of God.'” Matthew 4:4

“Why do you spend your money for that which is not bread, and your labor for that which does not satisfy? Hearken diligently to me, and eat what is good, and delight yourselves in fatness.” Isaiah 55:2

“Incline your ear, and come to me; hear, that your soul may live; and I will make with you an everlasting covenant, my steadfast, sure love for David.” Isaiah 55:3

“As for what was sown on good soil, this is he who hears the word and understands it; he indeed bears fruit, and yields, in one case a hundredfold, in another sixty, and in another thirty.” Matthew 13:23

“For as the rain and the snow come down from heaven, and return not thither but water the earth, making it bring forth and spout, giving seed to the sower and bread to the eater, so shall my word be that goes forth from my mouth; it shall not return to me empty, but it shall accomplish that which I purpose, and prosper in the thing for which I sent it.” Isaiah 55:10

 

 

Yes, I AM

Pinpoint a time in your life when I was not available to you–it cannot be done. Look for a place where I have not been; I’ve visited them all. Even to the depths of Hell–

I AM

See Me as Savior–Yes, I AM

  • I was before you.
  • I go before you.
  • I walk beside you.
  • Even inside you–if you’ve called Me to be…

Yes, I AM

Unto the ends of the earth–I AM

So, is there any question that I can? Yes, I can and yes–

I AM!

“The God who made the world and everything in it, being Lord of heaven and earth, does not live in shrines made by man, nor is he served by human hands, as though he needed anything, since he himself gives to all men life and breath and everything. And he made from one every nation of men to live on all the face of the earth, having determined allotted periods and the boundaries of their habitation, that they should seek God, in the hope that they might feel after him and find him. Yet he is not far from each one of us, for ‘In him we live and move and have our being’; as even some of your poets have said, ‘For we are indeed his offspring.’ Being then God’s offspring, we ought not to think that the Deity is like gold or silver, or stone, a representation by the art of imagination of man. The times of ignorance God overlooked, but now he commands all men everywhere to repent, because he has fixed a day on which he will judge the world in righteousness by a man whom he has appointed, and of this he has given assurance to all men by raising him from the dead.'” Acts 17:24-31

“And there is salvation in no one else, for there is no other name under heaven given among men by which we must be saved.” Acts 4:12

“For David says concerning him, ‘I saw the Lord always before me, for he is at my right hand that I may not be shaken; therefore my heart was glad, and my tongue rejoiced; moreover my flesh will dwell in hope.” Acts 2:25-26

“Again Jesus spoke to them, saying, ‘I am the light of the world; he who follows me will not walk in darkness, but will have the light of life'” John 8:12

“–Before me no god was formed, nor shall there be any after me. I, I am the Lord, and besides me there is no savior.” Isaiah 43:10b-11

“O Lord, thou hast searched me and known me! Thou knowest when I sit down and when I rise up; thou discernest my thoughts from afar. Thou searchest out my path and my lying down, and art acquainted with all my ways. Even before a word is on my tongue, lo, O Lord, thou knowest it altogether. Thou dost beset me behind and before, and layest thy hand upon me. Such knowledge is too wonderful for me; it is high, I cannot attain it. Wither shall I go from thy Spirit? Or whither shall I flee from thy presence? If I ascend to heaven, thou art there! If I make my bed in Sheol, thou art there! If I take the wings of the morning and dwell in the uttermost parts of the sea, even there thy hand shall lead me, and thy right hand shall hold me.” Psalms 139:1-10

 

 

My Perfect Timing

I have much for you to do

The world is a big place and yet it is all within My grasp, therefore it is within your grasp as well. I AM not limited, but I limit My children for timing. If I were to send you out, unprepared, you would fall and be perplexed. You would wonder if you had missed your direction.

  • I give you purpose.
  • I help you plan.
  • We prepare together.
  • We go.

For I always go with you–you are never alone!

Exercise your faith by first understanding My will

Next, be willing. Many know My will, but are not willing to yield to it. They suppress direction in their heart until it no longer calls to them and then declare that they are not being led.

Be honest

Be true to your heart, for I AM leading, but you must be willing to go or willing to wait.

My timing is perfect

“And Jesus came and spake unto them, saying, All power is given unto me in heaven and in earth. Go ye therefore, and teach all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father, and of the Son, and of the Holy Ghost: Teaching them to observe all things whatsoever I have commanded you: and, lo I am with you alway, even unto the end of the world. Amen.” St. Matthew 28:19-20 KJV

“And he called to him the multitude with his disciples, and said to them, “If any man would come after me, let him deny himself and take up his cross and follow me. For whoever would save his life will lose it; and whoever loses his life for my sake and the gospel’s will save it. For what does it profit a man, to gain the whole world and forfeit his life? For what can a man give in return for his life? For whoever is ashamed of me and of my words in this adulterous and sinful generation, of him will the Son of man also be ashamed, when he comes in the glory of his Father with the holy angels.” Mark 8:34-38

“Do not be conformed to this world but be transformed by the renewal of your mind, that you may prove what is the will of God, what is good and acceptable and perfect.” Romans 12:2

“Having gifts that differ according to the grace given to us, let us use them: if prophecy, in proportion to our faith; if service, in our serving; he who teaches, in his teaching; he who exhorts, in his exhortation; he who contributes, in liberality; he who gives aid, with zeal; he who does acts of mercy, with cheerfulness.” Romans 12:6-8

“Take care, brethren, lest there be in any of you an evil, unbelieving heart, leading you to fall away from the living God. But exhort one another every day, as long as it is called “today,” that none of you may be hardened by the deceitfulness of sin. For we share in Christ, if only we hold our first confidence firm to the end, while it is said, ‘Today, when you hear his voice, do not harden your hearts as in the rebellion.'” Hebrews 3:12-15

“For he has made known to us in all wisdom and insight the mystery of his will, according to his purpose which he set forth in Christ as a plan for the fulness of time, to unite all things in him, things in heaven and things on earth. In him, according to the purpose of him who accomplishes all things according to the counsel of his will, we who first hoped in Christ have been destined and appointed to live for the praise of his glory.” Ephesians 1:9-12

“Whoever does the will of God is my brother, and sister, and mother.” Mark 3:35
