Performance-Based Love

Performance-based love

PERFORMANCE-BASED LOVE

Child, you have performance-based love for yourself. When you accomplish much you feel good about yourself . But when you don’t perform as you think you should, you criticize yourself. You judge yourself as a failure.

Open your eyes to see yourself as I see you. You’ve heard it said, “Love your neighbor as yourself”. My child, I say, “Be kind to yourself”.

Quit beating yourself up for your so-called failures. You’re not a failure. You are Mine. I see you as complete in My Presence. I cover you with Myself. Therefore, your so-called flaws are covered by My blood and My Holy Spirit.

As you yield yourself to Me, I’ll lead you to your victory. For I do have victory planned for you. As a matter of fact, I have victory planned for each one of Mine.

When My Spirit is invited into one’s heart, I fill their heart with My victory. Then I lead and direct each one to the victory I have planned for each one specifically. 

FEAR OF SHORTAGES

Lord, Abba Father God, I’m afraid of shortages.

Child, you’ve been caught up in fear. Preparation is good, but fear? No, fear is destructive.  Child, as you seek My wisdom, I will lead you. 

But you must seek My voice and listen. Cut out some of that endless noise of media and listen carefully for My voice speaking to your heart. Remember I spoke to Elijah in a small, still voice. I never yell or scream.

Child, this is your word for today. “Listen, trust, and obey.” Focus on that. Then watch and see what I will do. And let go of your performance-based love, both for yourself and others. 

Yes Sir. Help my unbelief. Increase my faith, especially my faith in You. And help me to let go of my performance-based love, both of myself and others too.

FEED ON THIS

Become one with Him, no longer counting on being saved by being good enough or by obeying God’s laws, but by trusting Christ to save me; for God’s way of making us right with Himself depends on faith – counting on Christ alone. Philippians 3:9 TLB

For every child of God can obey Him, defeating sin and evil pleasure by trusting Christ to help him. 1John 5:4 TLB

For by grace you have been saved by faith. Nothing you did could ever earn this salvation, for it was the love gift from God that brought us to Christ!           Ephesians 2:8 TPT

Salt Of The Earth

Jesus wants to make you the salt of the earth

Child, I want you to become a “salt of the earth”.

Lord, show me how. What can I do?

Child, to begin with start talking to Me more. Talk with Me more about your prayer list, more, about your “to do” list, and more than you talk to anyone else.

Talk with Me about your life, your dreams, your desires, and your struggles. By the way, I gave you those dreams. Now come to Me and I will give you strength.

I will lead you. I will guide you. Seek My will in all things, all your ways, and I will direct your steps to your personal victory. The one I created just for you.

Yes Sir. Lord, I want you and I want to do your will. Forgive me for getting so caught up in fear. But Lord, what about those who aren’t prepared?

Child, I am their supply.  After all, I fed 5,000 and took up 12 baskets of leftovers. So trust Me and eat according to My will for you.

Then praise Me for I am your endless supply and don’t be afraid. Don’t worry. Buy as I lead you. Pray in the grocery store. Pray and seek My advice. Seek My will over everything you buy.

And Child, you need to return back to the basics of how I led you to eat. Keep you heart in submission to Me. Begin by eating in obedience to My instructions for you. Let go of the unnecessary food.  

Yes Sir.

Remember, My children are the salt of the earth.

FEED ON THIS

Pray without ceasing  1Thessalonians 5:17

Be anxious for nothing, but in everything by prayer and supplication, with thanksgiving, let your requests be made known to God; and the peace of God, which surpasses all understanding, will guard your hearts and minds through Christ Jesus.  Philippians 4: 6-7 

You are the salt of the earth; but if the salt loses its flavor, how shall it be seasoned? It is then good for nothing but to be thrown out and trampled underfoot by men. Matthew 5:13 NKJV

Then you will call upon Me and go and pray to Me, and I will listen to you.  Jeremiah 29:12

The Gluttony Monster

The Gluttony Monster

Lord, I think this gluttony monster comes to my house every evening. And when the compulsion from this monster hits, I don’t even stop to think. It consumes me.

I need more discipline, consistency, strength, and the power to say ‘No’ to this food obsession, this gluttony monster. I can’t change myself because I am powerless over myself.

But My Child, I have all the power you need.

Lord, My day starts out so good. I eat appropriate and sufficient. But then after supper, here comes this gluttony monster to consume my health.

Yes Child,  I see it all. My heart hurts for you. And I long to set you free. It is My will to set you free. 

So Lord, what can I do? I know You said to semi-fast for 40 days. But ever since that day, I’ve been invaded by this overwhelming compulsive to overeat. In fact, I’ve been eating like crazy.

I know You said, ‘Come to You’. But I haven’t stopped eating long enough to ‘come’ to You. Lord, I don’t know what to do.

I want to please You. I want to love You as I should. But here I am, all messed up.

I can pray words, “Create in me a clean heart and renew a steadfast spirit”. But they are only words, just words, unless I change.

Child, I have watched you and I’ve been waiting for you even as you fell. But I’m always waiting to catch you. I will help you, for I have the power.

You will win over this addiction, over this gluttony monster. You will defeat this compulsion for I created you to be a victor. I created you for victory.

So Lord, what do I do?

Pray without ceasing. Every hour of every day come to Me. Check it off your time schedule if you must. But you must come to Me.  

Lord, I do want You to create in me a clean heart. And I long for a steadfast spirit before You. Fill me with Your sweet Presence daily and forevermore.

Child, I intend to. You will win over this compulsive gluttony monster. For I am THE WINNER and I created you to be a winner too. Therefore expect victory.

Be strong in the Lord
There are no perfect people, but God has already planned for your victory.

Expect victory. You will have your victory for I have already designed it. I am holding it in My hand. And you are a winner. You will win.

It may look like defeat to you. But when I look at you, I see a winner. You are Mine. You are a winner for I have already declared it so. 

Now get up and wash your face. Go forth today marching in your victory

Thank you Lord for not giving up on me.

Child, I never give up on any of My children. 

FEED OH THIS

You have already won a victory . . . because the Spirit who lives in you is greater than the spirit who lives in the world. 1John 4:4 NLT

For though we walk in the flesh, we are not waging war according to the flesh. For the weapons of our warfare are not of the flesh but have divine power to destroy strongholds. 2 Corinthians 10: 3-4 ESV

Therefore submit to God. Resist the devil and he will flee from you. Draw near to God and He will draw near to you. . . . James 4:7-8

I Am Your Deliverer

 

I am your Deliverer
I am your Deliverer.

My Child, look to Me. For I am your Deliverer

Lord, I was stupid. Yes, I was stupid. Yesterday I ate it all and more, I remember a time when I could just eat small amounts and be satisfied.

But now Lord, I don’t know what to do anymore.

My Child, focus on Me. Seek My Presence and I will lead you to your victory. 

So Lord, how do I get this extra weight off? Continue reading I Am Your Deliverer

Come To Me, My Child

Come to Me My Child

Come to Me first, My child, above all else and above all others. You’re listening to many others hoping they’ll say something to encourage you with hope.

But I want you to come to Me first and seek My words for your encouragement.

My child, it is I who gives wisdom and victory. It is I who give directions to those who are winners. And if you will seek My wisdom, I’ll lead you to your victory too.

Also My child, your debt is too fat. If you seek My wisdom, I’ll help you defeat that too.

For I am the winner above all else and above all others. Therefore if you come to Me and seek My wisdom, I’ll lead you to your victory. In fact, I will make you into a winner too.

So come to Me first above all else and all others for I am the Champion Winner. I am your source, I am your provider, and I am your winner. All who come to Me, I re-create into winners.

 

So come to Me, My child. Surrender, give yourself to Me. Seek My wisdom and follow My instructions. Then watch and see what I do with Your life.

Yes Sir. Lord, forgive me for all my diversions, for choosing my own way, and for seeking the words of others for encouragement. Forgive me Lord for I have failed in many ways.

But My child, you are Mine and none of Mine are failures. All of Mine are learners. You are a learner too. THEREFORE YOU ARE NEVER A FAILURE. But you are always a lesson. In fact you are My learner.

Now come to Me, come into My Presence and learn from Me, not others for they are only learners themselves. They are learning from Me.

So allow Me to teach you and then you can learn from Me. Seek My words, not the words of others.

Yes Sir. Thank you for taking your time to speak with me.

Child, it is My pleasure. I love you and I enjoy speaking to those I love.

HIS WORDS FOR WISDOM

But seek first the kingdom of God and His righteousness, and all these things shall be added to you. Matthew 6:33 NKJV

Seek His will in all you do, and He will show you which path to take. Proverbs 3:6 NLT

The Lord says, “I will guide you along the best pathway for your life. I will advise you and watch over you. Psalms 32:8 NLT

And this same God who takes care of Me will supply all your needs from His glorious riches, which have been given to us in Christ Jesus. Philippians 4:19 NLT

But when You open my ears and speak to me, I become Your willing servant, Your prisoner of love for life. Psalm 40:6 TPT

Seek My Wisdom

Seek My wisdomChild, I say to you again, “Seek My wisdom. turn your eyes toward Me.”

Lord, when I cried out to You back in 2013, You ministered to me. And You spoke to my heart, “I Am your counselor, come to Me.” Continue reading Seek My Wisdom

Sidetracked and Distracted

Sidetracked and distracted

Lord, I got sidetracked and distracted again. Also it seems I pray the same prayers and sing the same songs over and over. Meanwhile, I’m working so hard to get all this “to do” list done. But I can’t seem to finish it. Help me find Your will.

Meanwhile I’ve tried to work this program successfully. But occasionally, I messed up and fell on my face. Sometimes I fell in the feeding trough, only to emerge bloated and defeated. Help me find Your will.

Lord, it seems like it’s been a long time since I was overwhelmed by Your Presence. I’ve left You out, because everything else has me sidetracked and distracted.

Can You help me overcome this confusion and live a victorious life, full of Your Presence with joy and peace? Lord, I have no answers. And it seems I’m always busy, too busy for any joy in my life.Just Enjoy My Presence

My Child, seek My voice. Seek My Presence for I am your answer. No program can replace My power in your life. But as you come to Me, I will help you. Because it’s always been My intent to give you victory.

Child, I want you totally dependent on Me. Surrender your will and allow Me to guide your every step, your every word, and your every bite. Therein, you will have your victory.

Lord, I have so many dreams, thoughts, and plans. Because I get sidetracked and distracted, none are completed. I just go through my day busy as I can be. So busy, busy all the time. How can I get it all done?

First of all, My Child, focus on Me, seek My voice and seek My will for every moment of your day. Remember when you used to focus on My Presence even when you were in meetings. I was always there by your side. You knew I was with you then.

 Your plans are of no avail, just busy work. You’ve been running and running through your life. I’ve been calling on your heart. But you’ve focused more on your “to do” list versus seeking My Presence.

Oh Lord, please forgive me. In the evenings, exhaustion comes. Then I forget Your words of victory. So it’s easy to slip into my old habits of snacking until I fall asleep in my chair. Sidetracked and distracted

Child, know I am with you. I will lead you as you surrender to Me your life and your will. As you seek Me, I will lead you one day at a time, one moment at a time. When you are weak and tired, go to bed. Before you close your eyes, praise Me for your victories.

My Child, My plans for you are victory. They are not for your busyness. In fact, it is in your returning and resting in My Presence that will bring your victory over all.
