How good, how good My love and intentions are toward you. How much I have brought you through not to destroy you but to bring you on higher ground with Me, to enter you into a closer walk with Me that you have not yet known. I work all things for good to those who love Me, I orchestrate each area of your life. Often blessings and new lands to enter into are delayed because you do not trust Me, you do not know to go in and possess the land for you are not walking so close to Me, or you cannot bear the exaltation and blessing for it would crush you. So I delay it in My mercy to ready you for more.
You are finally coming to the realization of My love. I have much to pour through you. Do not fear that I have no use for you, My love, have I not been training you all of these years for such a time as this. I will use all the days of your life as you offer them to Me. I will use you mightily and every ounce of your energy. Your effort will be in Me to accomplish My purposes, Your effort will be strengthened with My strength and will go forth in My anointing. This effort is unlike any human effort you’ve ever known. It is not effort at all but work in rest, work through rest in Me.
You will accomplish so much more in even a few days in My purposes than all you have striven for all the days of your life in your own strength. Your rewards in working with Me and in Me are eternal, for you are building up My Kingdom and pouring out on behalf of others. You are letting Me pour through you. Many of your works have not been accomplished with Me and are as wood, hay, and stubble which will be quickly blown away. But when you work with Me your work is as gold, silver, and precious stones – enduring and fulfilling My purposes and delighting My heart.
How purposeful even the lifting of your finger in My strength and anointing than all the effort put forth to build a house. How much more effective is one word when said from My prompting than many words poured out in human wisdom and knowledge and understanding. Create in Me, not in your own strength. How I can expand your mind to create those things which are needful to those around you and point all these to Me.
How purposeful will be your actions and work rather than feeling purposeless and empty. How filled are My beloveds who work with Me. It takes some longer than others to learn this lesson of work in Me as rest. In this effort you are refreshed and not wearied, you are strengthened by My strength, you are empowered with My might, and your authority is in Me. How much you can complete in gentleness and humility with the means being as blessed as the ends.
I John 2:25-29
“And this is the promise that he hath promised us, even eternal life. These things have I written unto you concerning them that seduce you. But the anointing which ye have received of him abideth in you, and ye need not that any man teach you: but as the same anointing teacheth you of all things, and is truth, and is no lie, and even as it hath taught you, ye shall abide in him. And now, little children, abide in him; that, when he shall appear, we may have confidence, and not be ashamed before him at his coming. If ye know that he is righteous, ye know that every one that doeth righteousness is born of him.”
“There remaineth therefore a rest to the people of God. For he that is entered into his rest, he also hath ceased from his own works, as God did from his. Let us labour therefore to enter into that rest, lest any man fall after the same example of unbelief. For the word of God is quick, and powerful, and sharper than any twoedged sword, piercing even to the dividing asunder of soul and spirit, and of the joints and marrow, and is a discerner of the thoughts and intents of the heart.”
“Put on therefore, as the elect of God, holy and beloved, bowels of mercies, kindness, humbleness of mind, meekness, longsuffering; forbearing one another, and forgiving one another, if any man have a quarrel against any: even as Christ forgave you, so also do ye. And above all these things put on charity, which is the bond of perfectness. And let the peace of God rule in your hearts, to the which also ye are called in one body; and be ye thankful. Let the word of Christ dwell in you richly in all wisdom; teaching and admonishing one another in psalms and hymns and spiritual songs, singing with grace in your hearts to the Lord. And whatsoever ye do in word or deed, do all in the name of the Lord Jesus, giving thanks to God and the Father by him.”
“And whatsoever ye do, do it heartily, as to the Lord, and not unto men; knowing that of the Lord ye shall receive the reward of the inheritance: for ye serve the Lord Christ.”
