The Key Is Not The Treasure

I want you to think of money as a tool, not a value.

Money in itself means nothing. It is like a key that unlocks a door. The key itself has little value, but what it may unlock in your life is often priceless.

Use money as a tool to accomplish your need.

Focus on the win. Do not expect chance to feed your soul but stride forward–purpose to know–purpose to become whole.

I don’t want you to worry about money, that is not your concern. I will supply what you need; the end becomes the beginning of a new open door. Have you ever noticed that you never stay facing a closed door? You turn to a new direction–never backward for that is retreat.

Come, find the way that knows no defeat.

Doors will open and doors will close, but the path is unending for those who will hear. Use what you are supplied to unlock your future. The way will be clear–only when you hear.

“And now I commend you to God and to the word of his grace, which is able to build you up and to give you the inheritance among all those who are sanctified.

I coveted no one’s silver or gold or apparel. You yourselves know that these hands ministered to my necessities, and to those who were with me. In all things I have shown you that by so toiling one must help the weak, remembering the words of the Lord Jesus, how he said, ‘It is more blessed to give than to receive.'” Acts 20:32-35

 

With Your Whole Heart

Locate your heart.

Now, locate your mind.

Are the two in sync? Your mind should not run ahead of your heart, for your heart should give your mind charge. Likewise, if your mind is in conflict with your heart, then you are living out of your intelligence or emotions, rather than your spirit.

It is possible for your emotions to rule your mind if your spirit is not strong. Just as it is possible for your heart to lead without intelligent thought or for your intelligence to rule without a heart of compassion. All are examples of a man incomplete, for body, mind and spirit are not in sync.

I made you whole.

A complete man will take a stand against anything less than that–wholeness; the balance of peace in the inner man. There is quietness for your soul when you are whole.

Begin by locating your heart.

“For those who live according to the flesh set their minds on the things of the flesh, but those who live according to the Spirit set their minds on the things of the Spirit. To set the mind on the flesh is death, but to set the mind on the Spirit is life and peace.” Romans 8:5-6

“–know the God of your father, and serve him with a whole heart and with a willing mind, for the Lord searches all hearts, and understands every plan and thought. If you seek him, he will be found by you; but if you forsake him, he will cast you off forever.” I Chronicles 28:9

“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

“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

“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 exist, 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

“As therefore you received Christ Jesus the Lord, so live in him, rooted and built up in him and established in the faith, just as you were taught, abounding in thanksgiving.” Colossians 2:6-7

 

 

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

 

 

The Perfect Gift

Your wholeness comes from above–it is within you if I AM within.

So many are running here, running there, gathering books, seeking specialists, and then…

when all else is done, and unrest remains–then they look to Me, often with blame; yet I was the one who loved them all along.

I AM the Healer.

I created you whole, when I birthed you from My death. Every baby is born through the pathway of blood. Every human being is Born Again through the shedding of blood–Mine.

Do you see?

I gave birth to you through My death. I took your death that you may live; that you might live in a fulness that you did not have before. A life that was not right, made perfectly complete by a perfect sacrifice.

Why then, am I a last resort when you seek what you need for your life?

What you need is inside, for there you have no need. But what you need is to open the gift, before you have need, and then you will find that you have no need.

I AM the perfect gift, given to you.

Open the gift and celebrate your Birthday. Happy Birthday…

Happy Birth Day!

Can he enter a second time into his mother’s womb and be born?” Jesus answered, “Truly, truly, I say to you, unless one is born of water and the Spirit, he cannot enter the kingdom of God. That which is born of the flesh is flesh, and that which is born of the Spirit is spirit.”” John 3:3-6

“Blessed be the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ!

“For God so loved the world that he gave his only Son, that whoever believes in him should not perish but have eternal life.

“Since therefore the children share in flesh and blood, he himself likewise partook of the same nature, that through death he might destroy him who has the power of death, that is the devil, and deliver all those who through fear of death were subject to lifelong bondage.” Hebrews 2:14-15
