I AM The Cure

Anxiety has become an epidemic of great proportion, but they treat the symptoms with a substance that will not cure, only pacify.

I want to heal them.

I want to remove the fear–wipe away every tear.

I AM the cure.

“With them indeed is fulfilled the prophesy of Isaiah which says: ‘You shall indeed hear but never understand, and you shall indeed see but never perceive. for this people’s heart has grown dull, and their ears are heavy of hearing, and their eyes have closed, lest they should perceive with their eyes, and hear with their ears, and understand with their heart, and turn for me to heal them.'” Matthew 13:14-15

Many expect instant answers for relief from the pain; invested a lifetime without any gain; yet give me just a moment–refusing to stay.

Yield to My Way; the Way to be healed–yield!

It takes time to build a kingdom and yet moments to tear it down. Just turn away and destruction begins–until you yield again–turn My way and enter in.

Resisting is the key–resist Satan and he will flee. But resisting isn’t passive you see.

Aggressively order him to leave!

“Submit yourselves therefore to God. Resist the devil and he will flee from you.” James 4:7

When anxiety comes–command fear to go; order pain away. I didn’t leave you defenseless, but you must come to your senses–it’s all in My Word. I will heal your body, but you must guard the words you speak. I will deliver you from shame, but you must find the time to seek.

Yield to stay–I AM the Way you seek…

Guard what you speak!

“And to the centurion Jesus said, “Go; be it done for you as you have believed.” And the servant was healed at that very moment.” Matthew 8:13

“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

“And as Jesus passed on from there, two blind men followed him, crying aloud, “Have mercy on us, Son of David.” When he entered the house, the blind men came to him; and Jesus said to them, “Do you believe that I am able to do this?” They said to him, “Yes, Lord.” Then he touched their eyes, saying, “According to your faith be it done to you.” And their eyes were opened.–” Matthew 9:27-30a

“And he called the twelve together and gave them power and authority over all demons and to cure diseases, and he sent them out to preach the kingdom of God and to heal.” Matthew 9:1-2

“And they departed and went through the villages, preaching the gospel and healing everywhere.” Matthew 9:6

“And when Jesus entered Peter’s house, he saw his mother-in-law lying sick with a fever; he touched her hand, and the fever left her, and she rose and served him. That evening they brought to him many who were possessed with demons; and he cast out the spirits with a word, and healed all who were sick. This was to fulfil what was spoken by the prophet Isaiah, “He took our infirmities and bore our diseases.” Matthew 8:14-17

“”Every one then who hears these words of mine and does them will be like a wise man who build his house upon the rock; and the rain fell, and the floods came, and the winds blew and beat upon that house, but it did not fall, because it had been founded on the rock.

And every one who hears these words of mine and does not do them will be like a foolish man who built his house upon the sand; and the rain fell, and the floods came, and the winds blew and beat against that house, and it fell; and great was the fall of it.”” Matthew 7:24-27

“Now faith is the assurance of things hoped for, the conviction of things not seen.” Hebrews 11:1

“May the God of hope fill you with all joy and peace in believing, so that by the power of the Holy Spirit you may abound in hope.” Romans 15:13

“Blessed is everyone who fears the Lord, who walks in his ways!” Psalms 128:1

 

Every Moment

There are moments when you simply cannot choose what to do. Direction seems vague—unclear. Do not fear. I AM right here. There are times when I would have you try to figure it out. I want you to utilize the tools you have been given.

Seek My face, ask for Grace, seek My Word—pray; all lead to an audience with Me, built upon the structure of faith.

Without faith it is impossible to please Me—without faith it is impossible to ‘see’. I work with faith; in this I honor you, as you honor Me with your faith. It’s a simple exchange. You bring to Me what you know and believe—by faith you receive.

“Now faith is the assurance of things hoped for, the conviction of things not seen., And without faith it is impossible to please him. For whoever would draw near to God must believe that he exists and that he rewards those who seek him.” Hebrews 11:1,6

But I give you times when you don’t know, on purpose, that you seek My Word—My Face—My Grace—that you might know.

When you find in My Word your faith to believe, it is through My Word that you may receive.

Then you know.

“And we know that the Son of God has come and has given us understanding, to know him who is true; and we are in him who is true, in his Son Jesus Christ. This is the true God and eternal life.” I John 5:20

Savor every moment, for every moment leads to more!

“–he taught me, and said to me, “Let your heart hold fast my words; keep my commandments, and live; do not forget, and do not turn away from the words of my mouth. Get wisdom; get insight. Do not forsake her, and she will keep you; love her, and she will guard you.

The beginning of wisdom is this: Get wisdom, and whatever you get, get insight. Prize her highly, and she will exalt you; she will honor you if you embrace her. She will place on your head a fair garland; she will bestow on you a beautiful crown.” Proverbs 4:4-9

“But you, beloved, build yourselves up on your most holy faith; pray in the Holy Spirit; keep yourselves in the love of God; wait for the mercy of our Lord Jesus Christ unto eternal life.” Jude 20-21

“Trust in the Lord with all your heart, and do not rely on your own insight. In all your ways acknowledge him, and he will make straight your paths.” Proverbs 3:5-6

“And I will lead the blind in a way that they know not, in paths that they have not known I will guide them. I will turn the darkness before them into light, the rough places into level ground. These are the things I will do, and I will not forsake them.” Isaiah 42:16

“–the path of the righteous is like the light of dawn, which shines brighter and brighter until full day.” Proverbs 4:16

Open The Door

Do not ‘work’ at pleasing others, for they will not satisfy your life. For just when you think you’ve accomplished their will, it will change–for emotions reign.

“Am I now seeking the favor of men, or of God? Or am I trying to please men? If I were still pleasing men, I should not be a servant of Christ.” Galatians 1:10

Look to Me, for I AM pleased at your glance.

You don’t have to perform for Me; for I know you and, in you, I AM pleased. Rather, work at the task pressing on your heart and I will work those around you, to please you, to do what I’ve called you to do.

Do not be afraid of the goal–just begin.

Those who allow the goal to overwhelm, never start. Convinced in their heart that they can’t do what I ask, they stop listening and turn away. Fear of failure has taken root in their heart.

I didn’t ask you to know how; I ask you to be willing.

From the start you may only know a small part.

The plan is made perfect by My will. For I will impart My Wisdom to your heart, and knowledge to fulfill My will.

Do you question still?

Come along with Me. I will help you to see the answers to all that you ask.

“Trust in the Lord with all your heart, and do not rely on your own insight. In all your ways acknowledge him, and he will make straight your paths.” Proverbs 3:5-6

I AM unchanging, but ever-arranging your life to line up with Mine. As you ‘see’ Me, that is the key, that unlocks each door that you grasp.

Open the door!

“My son, if you receive my words and treasure up my commandments with you, making your ear attentive to wisdom and inclining your heart to understanding;

yes, if you cry out for insight and raise your voice for understanding, if you seek it like silver and search for it as for hidden treasures; then you will understand the fear of the Lord and find the knowledge of God.

For the Lord gives wisdom; from his mouth come knowledge and understanding; he stores up sound wisdom for the upright; he is a shield to those who walk in integrity, guarding the paths of justice and equity, every good path;

for wisdom will come into your heart, and knowledge will be pleasant to your soul; discretion will watch over you; understanding will guard you; delivering you from the way of evil, from men of perverted speech–” Proverbs 2:1-12

“Whatever your task, work heartily, as serving the Lord and not men, knowing that from the Lord you will receive the inheritance as your reward; you are serving the Lord Christ.” Colossians 3:23-24

 

The Wealth of Your Heart

Tremendous wealth is laid up for the just–just as I have said.

“A good man leaveth an inheritance to his children’s children: and the wealth of the sinner is laid up for the just.” Proverbs 13:22 KJV

But this is not something you set out to procure, for then, ‘riches’ would be in your head.

“As for the rich in this world, charge them not to be haughty, nor to set their hopes on uncertain riches but on God who richly furnishes us with everything to enjoy. They are to do good, to be rich in good deeds, liberal and generous, thus laying up for themselves a good foundation for the future, so that they may take hold of the life which is life indeed.” I Timothy 6:17-19

No, your head is meant for knowledge, and honor is given to the one who honors Me. But those who set their heart to attain, find, they drift from Me.

Rather, refrain from seeking your own wealth–seek My Kingdom instead.

Then long life and wealth will honor thee, and power that raises the dead.

You see, where your desire is, there is your heart.

If your desire be for ‘My Kingdom come’–in you My heart delights. Blessing will follow, those who swallow, the pride of their ‘own’ life.

Seek not from your head, ‘follow’ instead.

“What causes wars, and what causes fightings among you? Is it not your passions that are at war in your members? You desire and do not have; so you kill. And you covet and cannot obtain; so you fight and wage war. You do not have, because you do not ask. You ask and do not receive, because you ask wrongly, to spend it on your passions.” James 4:1-3

“And others are the ones sown among thorns; they are those who hear the word, but the cares of the world, and the delight in riches, and the desire for other things, enter in and choke the word, and it proves unfruitful.” Mark 4:18-19

“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

“But seek first his kingdom and his righteousness, and all these things shall be yours as well.” Matthew 6:33

“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.” Colossians 3:1-4

“I love those who love me, and those who seek me diligently find me. Riches and honor are with me, enduring wealth and prosperity. My fruit is better than gold, even fine gold, and my yield than choice silver. I walk in the way of righteousness, in the paths of justice, endowing with wealth those who love me, and filling their treasuries.” Proverbs 8:17-21

“Praise the Lord. Blessed is the man who fears the Lord, who greatly delights in his commandments! His descendants will be mighty in the land; the generation of the upright will be blessed. Wealth and riches are in his house; and his righteousness endures for ever.” Psalms 112:1-3

“Seek the Lord, all you humble of the land, who do his commands; seek righteousness, seek humility; perhaps you may be hidden on the day of the wrath of the Lord.” Zephaniah 2:3

 

Graceful Living

Tomorrow is a day of Grace, as is today. Do you see that every day is a gift to you that holds opportunity? Life can become a drudgery if you see it as so, but if you recognize My Grace, that gives you breath, and opportunity for change, and growth at every turn, you will be blessed.

For blessing will find you

Do you hear that? Blessing will find you–you need not seek for it. Rather, if you seek for it, you may be mistaken and find deception at your door. But Oh, when you set your heart and your sights on Kingdom living, then you will find delights that unfold before you, and yes overtake you–for I take care of My kids!

Do you love to give good gifts to your kids? So do I, and so much more…

So much more is in store–so much more

My children live beneath their potential, for their vision is so incomplete. Raise your standards and your sights–new heights you will obtain. If only you would see with My eyes and from sin you’d refrain; then nothing would be held from you

Everything is gain

Be Ye Blessed!

I am the Lord, that is my name; my glory I give to no other, nor my praise to graven images. Behold, the former things have come to pass, and new things I now declare; before they spring forth I tell you of them.” Isaiah 42:5-9

“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.” Colossians 3:1-4

“And do not seek what you are to eat and what you are to drink, nor be of anxious mind. For all the nations of the world seek these things; and your Father knows that you need them. Instead, seek his kingdom, and these things shall be yours as well. ‘Fear not, little flock, for it is your Father’s good pleasure to give you the kingdom.'” Luke 12:29-32

“If you then, who are evil, know how to give good gifts to your children, how much more will your Father who is in heaven give good things to those who ask him!” Matthew 7:11

“Blessed be the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, who has blessed us in Christ with every spiritual blessing in the heavenly places, even as he chose us in him before the foundation of the world, that we should be holy and blameless before him. He destined us in love to be his sons through Jesus Christ, according to the purpose of his will, to the praise of his glorious grace which he freely bestowed on us in the beloved. 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 1:3-8

Blessed shall be your basket and your kneading trough. Blessed shall you be when you come in, and blessed shall you be when you go out.” Deuteronomy 28:2-6

“The Lord will cause your enemies who rise against you to be defeated before you; they shall come out against you one way, and flee before you seven ways.” Deuteronomy 28:7

“The Lord will command the blessing upon you in your barns, and in all that you undertake; and he will bless you in the land which the Lord your God gives you. The Lord will establish you as a people holy unto himself, as he has sworn to you, if you keep the commandments of the Lord your God, and walk in his ways. And all the peoples of the earth shall see that you are called by the name of the Lord; and they shall be afraid of you.” Deuteronomy 28:8-10

Settle the Truth

Be assured that when you are first awakened to a Truth, it must have time to ‘settle’ before it becomes your nature.

Let Me explain…

As I enlighten you to a new Truth, your eyes are opened, your spirit enlightened. As you take ownership, the Truth will settle into your heart–your spirit being, as belief. However, you can believe something to be true, but never act upon it to become your Truth. You must own a Truth, to believe it is yours; but you then must act on what you believe to make it yours.

Practice what you believe on a daily basis, much like a man exercises his body. You will find your spirit grows stronger when you act in faith on that which you receive; as that becomes Truth in your life, then more will be given and the process continues. So is the way of a faithful man…

He values what I speak.

He values Me to seek.

Of such a true man I will be found!

Come seek Me. I will speak to you of a Truth that is profound; a Truth that will make you wise. There is so much for you to learn, that I marvel when My saints do not hunger for more. If you only knew how exciting your life can be–trust Me, you couldn’t wait to–

See

Seek Me for your next move. Let us begin. For every new Truth is a new beginning, but I AM not calling you to start over–I AM calling you to begin.

Yes, I AM calling…

Will you answer the call?

Again

Let us Begin
