Assigned to Love

You will receive more and more blessing in your life as you, simultaneously, lead and follow with My directives.

You are following Me . . .You are following others–as they follow Me. In this you lead others and they, in turn, do the same.

It is My plan that no one be an island unto themself.

Others are watching–and they should be; in you, they learn of Me. For you know many that don’t know Me. Many would be lost, had they not known you; but you’ve opened their eyes to the Truth–you’ve shown them the Way.

I AM–follow–to lead.

Do you notice, more and more, those attempting to irritate you?

I led you to them–do not run–lead!

I lead you to the ones that need Me the most. . .

Show them, I AM, the Way. . .

Learn to be–their friend!

It’s your assignment.

I AM!

“I therefore, a prisoner for the Lord, beg you to lead a life worthy of the calling to which you have been called, with all lowliness and meekness, with patience, forbearing one another in love, eager to maintain the unity of the Spirit in the bond of peace. there is one body and one Spirit, just as you were called to the one hope that belongs to your call, one Lord, one faith, one baptism, one God and Father of us all, who is above all and through all and in all. But grace was given to each of us according to the measure of Christ’s gift.” Ephesians 4:1-7

“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

“Show yourselves in all respects a model of good deeds, and in your teaching show integrity, gravity, and sound speech that cannot be censured, so that an opponent may be put to shame, having nothing evil to say of us.” Titus 2:7-8

“But thanks be to God, who in Christ always leads us in triumph, and through us spreads the fragrance of the knowledge of him everywhere. For we are the aroma of Christ to God among those who are perishing, to one a fragrance from death to death, to the other a fragrance from life to life. Who is sufficient for these things? For we are not, like so many, peddlers of God’s word; but as men of sincerity, as commissioned by God, in the sight of God we speak in Christ.” II Corinthians 2:14-17

“Having purified your souls by your obedience to the truth for a sincere love of the brethren, love one another earnestly from the heart.” I Peter 1:22

“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

Victory Won

Accomplishment comes when you least expect it.

Yes, you may set out to accomplish a task and, therefore, may be expecting to see it through and you may well. But not all accomplish what they set out to do. Not all recognize true accomplishment when it happens. I look at accomplishment differently than you, for I see accomplishment from a different view. You tend to see it when a task is done; I see it through a victory won.

You see, the finish is completed first in the heart–long before you start; for you must first ‘see it‘ to finally see it through. If you cannot ‘see’ yourself accomplishing, you will never or will merely, reluctantly, begin.

So get your start in your heart, plan it through. Believe to accomplish what you thought you couldn’t do.

Set your mind to obey your heart, right from the start. For your mind will defeat you every time, that your spirit, soul and body are not in line with My Word and my plan for you.

Now you see that the accomplishment in the heart is far greater than the start, for if your heart is filled with victory, decision will be sure; for the mind, soul and body will ‘follow through’ for the spirit that is sure.

Seeing clearly to follow through, that is accomplishment–that is ‘victory won’–even before you have begun.

“In a great house there are not only vessels of gold and silver but also of wood and earthenware, and some for noble use, some for ignoble. If any one purifies himself from what is ignoble, then he will be a vessel for noble use, consecrated and useful to the master of the house, ready for any good work.” II Timothy 2:20-21

“For it is not the man who commends himself that is accepted, but the man whom the Lord commends.” II Corinthians 10:18

“Now may our Lord Jesus Christ himself, and God our Father, who loved us and gave us eternal comfort and good hope through grace, comfort your hearts and establish them in every good work and word.” II Thessalonians 2:16-17
