Let not the feverish pursuits for satisfaction consume you. All of your striving and obsessing end in fruitlessness and guile is your reward, for the obtainment of your desire is not refreshing or marked with freedom – but has the stench of slavery and bondage.
I’m teaching you that the way you accomplish or obtain must be My way, so that the reward is as a tree of life. I’m teaching you a new way to walk with Me. Did you think I would let you continue on in your stumbling way of life with fruit of struggle and heavy bondage?
My yoke is easy and My burden is light. Come to Me and learn of My ways. I’m teaching you to walk with Me as My friend. I tell you again, live out of the deep places of your heart and you will hear My voice saying this is the way walk in it. You will be able to live in your desires for they will be the desires of our hearts.
How light and freeing this way of life. Others who have struggled in despair and wrestling will see your walk with Me and ask, “What are you doing?” “How are you doing that?” They will see a difference, for My light will shine out in the dark. I have called My children to walk in the higher places. To be set apart, not just to refrain their seeming desires, but to find their true desires and live abundantly in these. This delights Me.
Live out of the deep places. The enemy fears this place, for My people are made strong here. Nothing he could offer can compare with the life I give you, with the life I’ve created you to live. He offers counterfeits of My creation, My ideas, these are never satisfying and never a tree of life.
These fruitless deeds of darkness drain My creations of their potential and true calling. The weeping and gnashing of teeth will be what they saw they could become, not what they were.
I invite all to follow Me and I will give life. I invite all to learn of Me, to know the purposes and intents of My heart, to know Me as a true/close friend – then will My power, might, manifest presence be a side effect. Many ask for these things without relationship. I desire relationship and delight to give these other things. When you are found in Me and I am found in you then we are one and My heart’s desires are yours and My power and authority are yours.
Queen Ester held the King’s heart in her hands. He was ravished by one glance of her eyes, by one word from her tongue. My heart is also ravished by My beloveds. Will I not also do through them all that they ask when we are one.
When we are one all backbiting vanishes, for you feel My love for others. All gossip ceases, for you’d rather give mercy than judge. No corrupt/slanderous communication will come forth out of your mouth for you will desire to speak life to others and not tear them down – edification will be the way of your speech. When you see sickness and disease your hands will stretch forth with My compassion and their bodies and minds will be healed and their bondages broken.
I have come to set the captive free and I choose to do it through My beloveds. I want them to share in this exciting work – to see the captive set free. he works of darkness cannot stand in My presence and when I am one with you the darkness must be removed/peeled back.
Do not let yourself be burdened by the cares of this world, for are not the riches of this earth all mine? I provide for My beloveds/children, for those whose hearts are fully committed to Me. Though the wicked may prosper for a time, how much more do I desire to prosper My beloveds and show the hungry world what a rich and generous King I Am.
I am able to meet all needs and I desire to do this through you and all My children. I wait to pour out, just ask Me and I will move on your behalf.
“Trust in the Lord and do good; dwell in the land and enjoy safe pasture. Take delight in the Lord, and he will give you the desires of your heart. Commit your way to the Lord; trust in him and he will do this: He will make your righteous reward shine like the dawn, your vindication like the noonday sun. Be still before the Lord and wait patiently for him; do not fret when people succeed in their ways, when they carry out their wicked schemes.”
