A BRAND NEW START

 

Come speak to Me about what you are going through.  Don’t hold it all to yourself for I AM your God, and I want you to confide in Me.  Share with Me all your cares for I care for you.  There is nothing you can’t tell Me that I already know, but I want you to unload all your cares upon Me.  There is no reason why you have to carry them on your own.

This is the day of the great falling away, and it all starts when a spirit of independence creeps in and then the spirit of pride.  These are dangerous signs when one doesn’t discern what is taking place in your heart.  When you take matters in your own hands not relying on My faithfulness but try to work them out in your own strength, you open yourself up to a great deception.  One thing piles upon the next, and you have a load too heavy for you to carry, for you are building for yourself a stronghold that is too hard to break away from.

Repentance must take place after you cry out to Me for it. All you need to do is realize that you have made yourself to be your own god and not allowing Me to be what I need to be to you.  Extreme danger is at hand when My people who are called by My name refuse to humble themselves and pray and turn from their wicked ways, and because they won’t cry unto Me; therefore, I will not heal their land.

There is just too much pride and idolatry in one’s heart when they refuse to cast all their cares unto Me.  Worry is a sin so deep in one’s heart because one will not repent of the sin of pride and independence and choose to carry it all on their own.

I warn you this day that if you refuse to turn from your wicked ways, then I cannot be your God.  I will not be a god to a people who refuse to trust Me.  My hands are tied.  Turn while there is still time.  Do not take this matter lightly because I do not.

Now, My children, I warn you because I love you.  I will never forsake you completely.  I will wait for you because I forever intercede for you standing on My promise to never let go of those I died for.  I believe you have the victory but for the time you must be strengthened in My love.  You must realize that I love you or I would not chastise you.  Only because you are now My son I cannot allow you to do the things you did when you were a babe.

Now pick yourself up and brush yourself off.  This is a new day, a brand new hour.  Old things have passed away and all things have become new.  If you desire, you can start anew.  I will wash away the sins of your past if you realize them and confess them to Me.  I will wash you clean and yes, give you a brand new start.

Yes, cast your cares upon Me for truly I care for you!

  1. Luke 18:10-14

    Amplified Bible (AMP)

    10 Two men went up into the temple [[a]enclosure] to pray, the one a Pharisee and the other a tax collector.

    11 The Pharisee [b]took his stand ostentatiously and began to pray thus before and with himself: God, I thank You that I am not like the rest of men—extortioners (robbers), swindlers [unrighteous in heart and life], adulterers—or even like this tax collector here.

    12 I fast twice a week; I give tithes of all that I gain.

    13 But the tax collector, [merely] standing at a distance, would not even lift up his eyes to heaven, but kept striking his breast, saying, O God, be favorable (be gracious, be merciful) to me, the [c]especially wicked sinner that I am!

    14 I tell you, this man went down to his home justified (forgiven and made upright and in right standing with God), rather than the other man; for everyone who exalts himself will be humbled, but he who humbles himself will be exalted.
