Know My Ways

My way, saith the Lord, is not feverish pursuits for satisfaction. No, My way is light, burdenless, life-giving, satisfying. You make wrong decisions based on your lusts and need to satisfy you for the moment.  My ways are eternal and the implications reach into eternity to give life and to build on what will last for eternity.  You do not realize how long eternity is. Your time with Me, forever.

Whatever seems pressing at the moment is not to Me. I orchestrate for eternity. Open your mind to begin to comprehend what eternity means. When you begin to view all of life’s actions and circumstances in the scope of eternity, you will begin to understand the seeming delays.

What I build must be made through human hands, what I speak must be mouthed through human speech. I laid my plan out this way.  Now you see why I need builders and voices. Be very careful then how you speak, for your words will now represent Me. I place this restraint on you and give you more responsibility to ensure every word you say is for edification and not a tearing down, not gossip or slanderous, but life-giving.

For do I not speak only what is life-giving? Be very careful then what you speak, what you write, what comes out of your heart. Guard your heart and your mind and keep them focused on Me and flowing with what I say. What you build and speak will reach into eternity, the foundation you are laying here.

I do not give this commission to you lightly. I’ve seen your faults and secret places, the times where darkness overtook you, but it was merely a shadow – I am your light and life. The things in your past I do not remember, I consider them undone – not committed, for My blood covers them and I have forgotten them.  You do not bring them up.

Move forward now with My plan and path for you. Walk into my vision for you. I have created your hearts for just this adventure, for just this special purpose  Will I not also provide a way to complete My tasks and fulfill My purposes. It blesses My heart that you desire to fulfill the intents and purposes of My heart. When you focus on this you will never be led astray, you will never be dismayed, you will always know the right decision to make and the timing of making a decision.

Seek the purposes and intents of My heart and you will know which way to walk, what to spend money on, how and who to pour out to, you will know My way even as easy as your breathing in and out – you will know My ways in this way.  When something rises that interferes with this easiness, this way that seems as natural as breathing, then you will know it is not of Me.

Come and build with Me into eternity. How pleasant your walk will be with Me. Many times the enemy came to disrupt your heart. Anything disrupting this is of the enemy or of your flesh – do not give way to it. The enemy tried to cover up My gifts – no more. Be fully aware of the blessed privileges you have in Me– rejoice in them and bless My heart by experiencing them all and fully living in them. It is I who promote and I who put down.

Matthew 11:29-30

“Take my yoke upon you and learn from me, for I am gentle and humble in heart, and you will find rest for your souls. For my yoke is easy and my burden is light.”

Romans 7:15-25

“I do not understand what I do. For what I want to do I do not do, but what I hate I do. And if I do what I do not want to do, I agree that the law is good. As it is, it is no longer I myself who do it, but it is sin living in me. For I know that good itself does not dwell in me, that is, in my sinful nature.For I have the desire to do what is good, but I cannot carry it out. For I do not do the good I want to do, but the evil I do not want to do—this I keep on doing. Now if I do what I do not want to do, it is no longer I who do it, but it is sin living in me that does it. So I find this law at work: Although I want to do good, evil is right there with me. For in my inner being I delight in God’s law; but I see another law at work in me, waging war against the law of my mind and making me a prisoner of the law of sin at work within me. What a wretched man I am! Who will rescue me from this body that is subject to death? Thanks be to God, who delivers me through Jesus Christ our Lord!”

Matthew 16:16-19

“Simon Peter answered, ‘You are the Messiah, the Son of the living God.’ Jesus replied, ‘Blessed are you, Simon son of Jonah, for this was not revealed to you by flesh and blood, but by my Father in heaven. And I tell you that you are Peter, and on this rock I will build my church, and the gates of Hades will not overcome it I will give you the keys of the kingdom of heaven; whatever you bind on earth will be bound in heaven, and whatever you loose on earth will be loosed in heaven.’”

Proverbs 10:18-20

“Sin is not ended by multiplying words, but the prudent hold their tongues. The tongue of the righteous is choice silver, but the heart of the wicked is of little value.”

Proverbs 18:20-21

“From the fruit of their mouth a person’s stomach is filled; with the harvest of their lips they are satisfied. The tongue has the power of life and death, and those who love it will eat its fruit.”
