A Dedicated Heart

Sing praises to Me. Think of Me as a dedication to your heart, for when a heart is truly dedicated to Me, I return the honor, in honor to them.

Do not trample on your brother’s heart for that belongs to Me.

Do you see?

His heart belongs to Me, and yet, so many think nothing of slandering, on a regular basis, the heart and life of another. He might not hear–may not even be near, but still the damage is done.

He and I are one, as are you and I, and yet so easily the words flow; bringing harm to another soul, as if I were not standing by.

Why?

Why do you not think before you speak?

Your words must be sweet. I repeat–your words must be sweet! Slander is sinful and divides you and I. You receive My love, will you receive My correction? For sometimes it must be. I will defend the one, before more damage is done–to the brother you do not see. For he is mine–as are you, My Bride, and these wrinkles must not be.

Speak kindness and love, words are gifts from above–speak ever so wisely to Me. The praises on your lips, are offerings you bring, to the One who gives good gifts to men. But when you bring your gift to the altar, be it an offering or praise, if things are not right, please settle it tonight–go to him and see it through.

Now Come

Bring your gift–be it a sacrifice of praise, from lips bearing the pain, of continuous restrain, of slandering those that I love. Make this your habit, and your requests will be granted, with no hesitation on my part…

For such a gift to receive, is an honor I believe, from one with a pure and true heart.

Well Done My Bride

Well Done!

“You give your mouth free rein for evil, and your tongue frames deceit. You sit and speak against your brother; you slander your own mother’s son. These things you have done and I have been silent; you thought that I was one like yourself. But now I rebuke you, and lay the charge before you. ‘Mark this, then, you who forget God, lest I rend, and there be none to deliver! He who brings thanksgiving as his sacrifice honors me; to him who orders his way aright I will show the salvation of God!'” Psalms 50:19-23

“So if you are offering your gift at the altar, and there remember that your brother has something against you, leave your gift there before the altar and go; first be reconciled to your brother, and then come and offer your gift.” Matthew 5:23-24

“Do not speak evil against one another, brethren. He that speaks evil against a brother or judges his brother, speaks evil against the law and judges the law. But if you judge the law, you are not a doer of the law but a judge. There is one lawgiver and judge, he who is able to save and to destroy.  But who are you that you judge your neighbor?” James 4:11-12

“So the tongue is a little member and boasts of great things. How great a forest is set ablaze by a small fire! And the tongue is a fire. The tongue is an unrighteous world among our members, staining the whole body, setting on fire the cycle of nature and st on fire by hell.” “From the same mouth come blessing and cursing. My brethren, this ought not be so.” James 3:6, 10

“He who heeds instruction is on the path of life, but he who rejects reproof goes astray. He who conceals hatred has lying lips, and he who utters slander is a fool. When words are many, transgression is not lacking, but he who restrains his lips is prudent. The tongue of the righteous is choice silver; the mind of the wicked is of little worth. Proverbs 10:17-20

“If then you have been raised with Christ, seek the things that are above, where Christ is, seated at the right hand of God. Set your minds on things that are above, not on things that are on earth. For you have died and your life is hid with Christ in God. When Christ who is our life appears, then you also will appear with him in glory. Put to death therefore what is earthly in you: immorality, impurity, passion, evil desire, and covetousness, which is idolatry. On account of these the wrath of God is coming. In these you once walked, when you lived in them. But now put them all away; anger, wrath, malice, slander, and foul talk from your mouth. Do not lie to one another, seeing that you have put off the old nature with its practices and have put on the new nature, which is being renewed in knowledge after the image of its creator.” Colossians 3:1-10

“Put on then, as God’s chosen ones, holy and beloved, compassion, kindness, lowliness, meekness, and patience, forbearing one another and, if one has a complaint against another, forgiving each other; as the Lord has forgiven you, so you also must forgive. And above all these put on love, which binds everything together in perfect harmony. And let the peace of Christ rule in your hearts, to which indeed you were called in the one body. And be thankful. Let the word of Christ dwell in you richly, as you teach and admonish one another in all wisdom, and as you sing psalms and hymns and spiritual songs with thankfulness in your hearts to God. And whatever you do, in word or deed, do everything in the name of the Lord Jesus, giving thanks to God the Father through him.” Colossians 3:12-17

“–as Christ loved the church and gave himself up for her, that he might sanctify 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 25-27

 

The Hidden Link

Compassion is a link to My own heart, for I AM Compassion.

I have lived compassion.

Those who came to Me sick, lame, hungry and alone, the poor and brokenhearted–all will testify that I lived compassion. In death I held compassion for each and every one of you. I freely gave My life, that you may eternally live as I lived–in compassion for others.

There is no greater love than this, that a man lay down his life for his friends.

Within compassion, you will find another word…

Compass

A true heart will be led by compassion, and the direction you are to take can be found in your heart, if your heart contains compassion.

Follow the leading of your heart, for I dwell within…

and

I AM Compassion.

I AM your Compass.

Follow it.

Follow Me.

“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 15:13-14

“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. When he saw the crowds, he had compassion for them, because they were harassed and helpless, like sheep without a shepherd.” Matthew 9:35-36

“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

“Now when John heard in prison about the deeds of the Christ, he sent word by his disciples and said to him, ‘Are you he who is to come, or shall we look for another?’ And Jesus answered them, ‘Go and tell John what you hear and see: the blind receive their sight and the lame walk, lepers are cleansed and the deaf hear, and the dead are raised up, and the poor have good news preached to them. And blessed is he who takes no offense at me.” Matthew 11:2-6

“–and he had compassion on them, because they were like sheep without a shepherd; and he began to teach them many things.” Mark 6:34b

“The steadfast love of the Lord never ceases, his mercies never come to an end; they are new every morning; great is thy faithfulness. ‘The Lord is my portion,’ says my soul, ‘therefore I will hope in him.'” Lamentations 3:22-24

“And he said to them, ‘Follow me, and I will make you fishers of men.’ Matthew 4:19

 

 

Abounding Love

This I command you–to love one another. If you quarrel, bite and devour one another with your words, what fellowship have you? How can two walk together unless they be agreed? For if you are yoked together you must walk in the same direction. If you are unequally yoked, one will always be pulling against the other. There will be chafing and strife, and every form of evil will be given an open door when strife enters in.

My children there is a reason I hate divorce. It is the direct opposite of who I AM and what I came for–what I died for…

Love.

Love is the fulfillment of the law. For where love abides, love abounds and peace resides. Your home should be a reflection of the love My Father has bestowed upon Me and the Love I, in turn, gave unto you.

Learn to love by learning of Me, for I AM Love and, when you have so learned, then give it away. Give to those who love you the most, of course, but don’t stop there; if you’ve truly learned of Me you will know that I love those who hate Me.

Love your enemies as well as you love Me and you will find that when you have perfected this–perfected love, and, love Me, you will have a true family–

Where Love Abounds!

“Can two walk together except they be agreed?” Amos 3:3

“Let all bitterness and wrath and anger and clamor and slander be put away from you, with all malice, and be kind to one another, tenderhearted, forgiving one another, as God in Christ forgave you. 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 4:31-5:2

“For where envying and strife is there is confusion and every evil work. But the wisdom that is from above is first pure, then peaceable, gentle, and easy to be intreated, full of mercy and good fruits, without partiality, and without hypocrisy. And the fruit of righteousness is sown in peace of them that make peace.” James 3:16-18 KJV

“Love does no wrong to a neighbor; therefore love is the fulfilling of the law.” Romans 13:10

“For the whole law is fulfilled in one word, “You shall love your neighbor as yourself.” But if you bite and devour one another take heed that you are not consumed by one another.” Galatians 5:14-15

“But I say to you that hear, Love your enemies, do good to those who hate you, bless those who curse you, pray for those who abuse you.” Luke 6:27-28

“Put on then, as God’s chosen ones, holy and beloved, compassion, kindness, lowliness, meekness, and patience, forbearing one another and, if one has a complaint against another, forgiving each other; as the Lord has forgiven you, so you also must forgive. And above all these put on love, which binds everything together in perfect harmony.” Colossians 3:12-14

“As the Father has loved me, so have I loved you; abide in my love. 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.'” John 15:9-12

“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

 

Just Ask

Look to the mirror within; what reflection do you see? Do you see your past looking back at you, as if it were still a fresh wound? Do you see your future, with gaping holes, for places you yet do not perceive?

Or

Do you see Me–your Loving Savior reflected there in your heart? If your heart is full of Love to its capacity, then you truly see Me, for I AM Love.

  • If you see Compassion, Understanding, Wisdom and Strength…
  • If your heart is overflowing with Grace…
  • And softens with Kindness…

Then you truly emulate who I AM to the world.

If, however, you find that you behold the former, then I have Good News for you!

I came to set you FREE!

Invite Me fully and deeply into your heart–just ASK!

I will come in and fulfill your desires and needs.

I’ll fill up that gaping void.

You will truly want no more!

“We know that in everything God works for good with those who love him, who are called according to his purpose. For those whom he foreknew he also predestined to be conformed to the image of his Son, in order that he might be the firstborn among many brethren.
