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

“And he said to them, ‘Take heed what you hear; the measure you give will be the measure you get, and still more will be given you. For to him who has will more be given; and from him who has not, even what he has will be taken away.'” Mark 4:24-25

“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

 

 

I AM Speaking

Adjust your thinking as if in tuning a radio to a frequency, you can adjust your thoughts to be focused in the spirit to hear more clearly, succinctly. I AM not in your mind, but your mind cannot be ‘drifting’ to hear clearly through your spirit. Just as that radio frequency may drift and, though you hear the sounds, you may catch what is being said and yet you may not.

Focus–be in tune

Seek Me until you hear clearly, and then remain focused until I AM finished speaking. Some wander–their thoughts interfering, right in the middle of My statement. Would you be so rude to a friend or would you be attentive? Do you care to hear what I have to say or are you doubting that it is I speaking to you? Would you be upset if I were to only listen to half of your prayer, as if I didn’t care?

I do care

And it is because I care, that I AM patient and forgiving and I choose to speak again. Will you focus?

I AM speaking

And I would like to speak to you!

“No one can come to me unless the Father who sent me draws him; and I will raise him up at the last day. It is written in the prophets, ‘And they shall all be taught by God.’ Every one who has heard and learned from the Father comes to me.” John 5:44-45

“So Jesus answered them, “My teaching is not mine, but his who sent me; if any man’s will is to do his will, he shall know whether the teaching is from God or whether I am speaking on my own authority. He who speaks on his own authority seeks his own glory; but he who seeks the glory of him who sent him is true, and in him there is no falsehood.” John 7:16-18

“So Jesus said, ‘When you have lifted up the Son of man, then you will know that I am he, and that I do nothing on my own authority but speak thus as the Father taught me. And he who sent me is with me; he has not left me alone, for I always do what is pleasing to him.'” John 8:28-29

“–he who enters by the door is the shepherd of the sheep. To him the gatekeeper opens; the sheep hear his voice, and he calls his own sheep by name and leads them out. When he has brought out all his own, he goes before them, and the sheep follow him, for they know his voice. A stranger they will not follow, but they will flee from him, for they do not know the voice of strangers.” John 10:2-5

“I am the good shepherd; I know my own and my own know me, as the Father knows me and I know the Father; and I lay down my life for the sheep.” John 10:14-15

 

 

I Have More

When you step forth into your calling, you need not have the approval of men. It is wise to seek confirmation from trusted sources, but all will not agree, for all do not see.

There are many who hold Me to a standard that is theirs and not Mine. I AM so vast and the vision of man is so limited. I caution you not to see Me with your eyes, but Mine. I know it is not possible for you to see all that I see, but what I ask is that you ‘see’ what I give you; that you allow Me to be God of your life; allow Me to be more than what you see.

Do you see?

Limits are man’s way of being comfortable and an attempt to hold confusion at bay. They try to quench fear of the unknown, by sometimes stopping what I AM trying to introduce to them. This is all so futile and proof that they are not ready to receive…

More.

More of who I AM, and more of what I have called them to be. I AM patient, but many will never know or walk in the future I have for them because they limit My Ways and choose, rather, to be comfortable, ‘stable’, they call it.

I call it fear.

Do not let fear quench your call, nor that of any other man–allow Me to direct your path. You will find confirmation along the way, by the Holy Spirit speaking through those you have come to trust. For I have connected you to individuals who are open to My Ways, for a purpose…

to show you the Way.

Always check your heart, for it is there that I reside. Your peace will remain if you have chosen Me to guide you in…

the Way.

Now let Me show you something new–for there is plenty more to do.

I AM unchanging and yet ever revealing, more of who I AM

  • to those who will believe
  • those who will receive
  • those who trust that I AM

Let’s move, for there is More!

Are you listening? When you are ready…

I have More…

“‘And in the last days it shall be, God declares, that I will pour out my Spirit upon all flesh, and your sons and your daughters shall prophesy, and your young men shall see visions, and your old men shall dream dreams; yea, and on my menservants and my maidservants in those days I will pour out my Spirit; and they shall prophesy. And I will show wonders in the heaven above and signs on the earth beneath, blood, and fire, and vapor of smoke; the sun shall be turned into darkness and the moon into blood, before the day of the Lord comes, the great and manifest day. And it shall be that whoever calls on the name of the Lord shall be saved.'” Acts 2:17-21

“Strengthen the weak hands, and make firm the feeble knees. Say to those who are of a fearful heart, “Be strong, fear not! Behold, your God will come with a vengeance, with the recompense of God. He will come and save you.” Then the eyes of the blind shall be opened, and the ears of the deaf unstopped; then shall the lame man leap like a hart; and the tongue of the dumb sing for joy.” Isaiah 35:3-6

“And a highway shall be there, and it shall be called the Holy Way; the unclean shall not pass over it, and fools shall not err therein. No lion shall be there, nor shall any ravenous beast come up on it; they shall not be found there, but the redeemed shall walk there. And the ransomed of the Lord shall return, and come to Zion with singing; everlasting joy shall be upon their heads; they shall obtain joy and gladness, and sorrow and sighing shall flee away.” Isaiah 35:8

“–Go ye into all the world, and preach the gospel to every creature. He that believeth and is baptized shall be saved; but he that believeth not shall be damned. And these signs shall follow them that believe; In my name shall they cast out devils, they shall speak with new tongues; They shall take up serpents, and if they drink any deadly thing, it shall not hurt them; they shall lay hands on the sick, and they shall recover.” Mark 16:15-18 KJV

“And they went forth, and preached every where, the Lord working with them, and confirming the word with signs following. Amen.” Mark 16:20 KJV

 

Poised Ready!

Poised ready–that’s what I want you to be…

Poised and Ready

There isn’t time for you to run and study when I call. Your homework needs to have been done already for you to be of use to the Master today. If you don’t have a step to take, then spend the time you have…

Soaking in My Word

Abiding in My Love

Listening at My breast

Calling upon Me in prayer and…

Doing what your “heart” is telling you to do.

If you are diligent to this for Me, then you will be ready to step forward when I call and you will be amongst those numbered as the chosen few. You will be–

Poised and ready for the Master’s use!

“For many are called, but few are chosen.” Matt. 22:14

“Study to show thyself approved unto God, a workman that needeth not to be ashamed, rightly dividing the word of truth.” II Tim. 2:15 KJV

“If anyone 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. So shun youthful passions and aim at righteousness, faith, love, and peace, along with those who call upon the Lord from a pure heart.” II Tim. 2:21-22
