Beloved. You are running here and there and trying so hard to find Me and know Me.
You are trying so hard to earn My love and My gifts. Do you understand, Little One, that I AM the One who found you?
This is truth, Dear One. I loved you from the foundation of the earth. I imagined you and formed you and then you were cast into my Arms from your mother’s womb.
I held you and made you My own. Before you were born again, I already knew you intimately. I chose you and made you My Child through the Blood of the Lamb. I received gifts for you and dwelt among you.
It is by Grace through faith that you were saved.
It is by Grace that you hear My Voice.
It is by Grace that you are IN Me and I in you.
It is always of My doing, Beloved, and not any of your works. So seek the Giver of the gifts, and not the gifts.
Seek first the King and the Kingdom of your God and all these things will be added unto you.
I shall give to you LIBERALLY out of My treasures. He who spared not His own Son, will He not also give you ALL things freely?
Yes, My Love, for I delight in you.
Unto you it has been given to know the secrets of the Kingdom of Heaven. Fear not, little flock, it is your Father’s good pleasure to give you the Kingdom.
