“I AM Your Abba, and I do all things well for the benefit of My Children.
I AM a Good Father Who gives good gifts to you. There is nothing I wouldn’t do for My Children, so long as it was of benefit to them.
But not all things they ask of Me are of benefit. It is human nature to want what YOU want, to be comfortable, and to do things the easy way. And I don’t want you to struggle either.
I want you to YIELD to ME, so that the struggling is less. My yoke is easy and My Burden is light!
But if you insist on going YOUR way instead of My way, then the road becomes far more difficult and though I may permit some requests, it doesn’t mean that THAT is what I want for you, or what I see as best for you.
STUBBORNNESS is as IDOLATRY to ME. So I AM urging you and admonishing you to YIELD to My will and My ways.
I know what is best for you. Trust Me in this! I KNOW WHAT YOU NEED before you ask!
I know all things. I see the coming attack of the enemy and even warn you ahead some of the time. I impart the strength you need if you ASK.
I know that these times you have been through much testing and trials have worn many of you down.
So I AM asking you to REST and be restored! For it is in QUIETNESS and REST that you will be revived from your weariness.
You don’t have to DO anything, but to just lay down with ME, and allow me to refresh your soul. Allow ME to lift the heavy burdens off, and to REVEAL MY PLAN for your life.
“MARTHA, MARTHA, you are too busy,” I said to her. Many are not concerned with the things of God but of the things of the world, how you will eat, how you will drink, where you will live, how you’ll survive.
BUT HE WHO DWELLS IN THE SECRET PLACE, WILL ABIDE IN THE SHADOW OF THE ALMIGHTY I SAID. Will you come with ME to the secret place, into My heart of love and receive all that I have for you?
Will you take the time to KNOW ME? I warned you while on earth that many will come to me in that day, and say, I did this or that for you, I prophesied in Your name, but I will say to them… ”I NEVER KNEW YOU!”
So what do you want? Why do you want it? Are you interested in what I want? — or only what YOU WANT?
This is the test of death to self. It is natural to have wants and desires. Desire in itself is not evil. But this very thing wars with your members.
You want and do not get, and you want and do not have and so you argue, connive, manipulate to get what you want.
All such grasping is evil. It is not the ‘new man’, but the SELF life that does this. It is your FLESH. I AM coming to burn off all the FLESH. It is worthless. Boredom is merely a soulish thing. There is no boredom in heaven.
The flesh fights and fights to have ITS way. But I have called you to HIGHER purposes. I have called you to fight the good fight of FAITH, and to walk in GLORY.
I want many of you to carry My GLORY to nations. I AM coming to bring LIFE to the dead bones and to breathe on My Church again and to transform it into what I WANT it to be.
What I want is yieldedness to My will. IN THIS WAY YOU SHOW ME YOU LOVE ME, IF YOU OBEY ME.
Rebellion is not gone until you lay down ALL your agenda and pick up MINE. RELEASE is coming to all whose hearts are desirous to be ONE with MINE.
I have made a covenant with you and I AM a God of commitment and covenant. I KEEP MY PROMISES. I do not change My Mind, and write people off.
I AM PATIENT and KIND, full of mercy and lovingkindness for those who are My own! But you cannot keep asking ME to do YOUR WILL and expect me to go along with Your plans, when I AM to be Your God and Master!
I WILL HAVE AN OBEDIENT BRIDE. How many Esthers are there out there who will listen to ME, and what I WANT?
How many GIDEONS are there who will tear down the idols in the Father’s house?
You will walk in perfect peace when you walk in agreement to MY WILL. When you do that, I will corroborate what you speak from your mouth that is from ME.
Many miracles and healings will erupt as you follow MY LEAD. Come My Bride and come into MY HEART, and MY WILL, and MY MIND. I bless obedience to My will, not stubbornness and rebellion to My Will.“
“He who does not love does not know God, for God is love,” 1 John 4:7-8 NKJV.
“He who says, “I know Him,” and does not keep His commandments, is a liar, and the truth is not in him. But whoever keeps His word, truly the love of God is perfected in him. By this we know that we are in Him. He who says he abides in Him ought himself also to walk just as He walked,” 1 John 2:3-6 NKJV.
“Do not love the world or the things in the world. If anyone loves the world, the love of the Father is not in him. For all that is in the world — the lust of the flesh, the lust of the eyes, and the pride of life is not of the Father but is of the world. And the world is passing away, and the lust of it; but he who does the will of God abides forever,” 1 John 2:15-17 NKJV.
