I hear the cries of My people to go deeper still, expressing a hunger to know Me better.
However, you are only allowed to go as deep in Me as you let Me go deep in you. If you wish to go the center of My heart, you must let Me go to the center core of your being, your sub conscious mind.
The deepest part of you, that very center core of your nature and personality, is the center of your heart or in modern terms, subconscious mind. What you might not know is, it was actually formed while you were still in your mother’s womb.
The things that your mother felt, thought, said, feared, loved, hated, and did, were all mixed in together, as your subconscious mind was being developed. No matter how much you love it, hate it, deny it, or fight it, it’s still there, mom’s traits, better known as your old nature.
Many times, mothers will silently regret seeing their traits being reproduced in their children.
Some core traits are anxiety, anger, impetuousness, judgmental, boastful, low self esteem, rejection, orphan spirit, suspicious, dishonest, temper, busybody, gossip, nosiness, self absorbed, spiteful, unforgiving, revengeful, and many more.
These traits are your old nature and usually not noticed by you, because you were shaped in iniquity; and in sin did your mother conceive you, Psalm 51:5. I know you want to think of the good traits, but as far as heaven is concerned there are no good traits, until you are reborn, Romans 7:18.
That’s right, even the most righteous thing you have ever done is like filthy rags in the Kingdom, Isaiah 64:6. Millions cannot accept this fact and therefore will never enter heaven, seeing no need of a savior or to be reborn!
After your new birth, some of the core traits still remain, often referred to as character traits. These traits are never dealt with because you and others have come to accept them as just you or your personality!
Even you have expressed at times, “that’s just me, take it or leave it”. If you are one of those saying, “Lord take me deeper still”, you must make a choice, your desire to go deeper in Me, must exceed your desire to keep those traits that came from mama. Then you must be willing to admit that parts mom’s nature still do exist in your subconscious mind, and that they are in direct opposition to My nature. Then you must be willing to let Me go deeper into your subconscious core and use what ever it takes to remove the fleshly traits and transform you into My image.
This all takes time as you work together with My Spirit. Each trait that is removed allows you to go deeper and deeper into My heart. Each new depth carries a new and more powerful glory!
When you reach the center of My heart, walking in My perfect will, there is no man on earth or devil in hell that can stop you from fulfilling your purpose on earth!
It is the great desire of My heart for you to reach your full potential in Me, but it is also an equal desire of Mine, for you to willingly let Me go deep to the center core of your being and transform you! “I want to make known the riches of My glory and display this mystery among those in your sphere of influence; which is Me in the center core of you, offering the world, the hope of glory,” Colossians 1:27.
Are you willing to trade deeper for deeper to make this happen?
