Seeking Day

Seeking Day
Today is “Seeking Day”.

Today is your “seeking day”. Seek My will and seek My Presence. I know you’ll be talking to others, but focus on talking to Me today, all throughout your day. 

Lord, this is such a struggle. It’s an ongoing battle, a major struggle in my life. In fact, it seems I can’t ever win.

Child, victories only come through struggles and battles. There’s never a victory without a battle. 

But Lord, it seems like there’s a war inside of me and I can’t ever win.

My Child, you can win, for you are a winner. After all, you are Mine and all of Mine win. Because I always win. Therefore you win. 

But Lord, right now I feel like a loser, defeated before all to see, especially myself. I see myself as a loser.

So My child, quit looking at what you see. Now look to Me, so you can see what I see. For you, My Child, are strong and victorious.

But Lord, I start out my day strong. Then by night fall I’m weak and defeated.

Then change My child, change your pattern of life. 

How can I? When I wake up, the house is quiet and I can hear Your voice clearly. But in the evening I am tired, the TV is blaring, news is depressing and I fall asleep in my chair.  How can I change this pattern?

Child, make today your “Seeking Day”. You’ve been listening to many voices throughout your day. On this “seeking day”, shut off all other voices and settle yourself in. Seek My voice. Seek My Presence and you will have peace. When I am on your side, you are a winner. It is so for I have declared it so.

Seek My Answers, Child

Seek My answers, Child.

Lord, I know You’re the answer to all.

But Child, you do not seek My answers. 

Lord, I thought I did. I’m so confused.

Child, listen to Me. 

So Lord, what do I do?

To begin with Child, seek My Presence first. Then listen as I speak to your heart. Seek My answers to all your questions. Also spend time reading My Word, for you will find many answers there as well.Seek His answers Continue reading Seek My Answers, Child

Turn Your Focus Back to Me

turn your focus
Focus on My Presence this day.

Child, turn your focus back to Me. Seek My Presence. You’ve asked for a quiet, still life. and yes, that’s nice. But you can have My Presence even in the mist of extreme busyness. Do you think only those with “quiet, still lives” experience My Presence?

Not so, it’s those who seek Me even in the midst of their extreme busy lives. Know that I am with those who seek Me. So, if you miss My Presence, it is not I who left. Rather, it was you who turned your eyes to other things.

Even good things are useless if they cause you to divert your eyes from My love. It’s called “busy work”. Satan loves busy work. Because it keeps you so occupied that you focus on the task or whatever it is at hand and turn your eyes, your attention, even your heart from seeking My Presence. 

So Lord, how do I correct this?

Turn to Me, seek My Presence, seek My opinion, and seek My advice. In general, talk to Me about everything in your life. 

Okay Lord. But what about my weight?

Focus on My Presence
It is through My Presence that you will find your victory.

Ahhhh . . . another issue. Again I tell you seek My advice. Stop before you eat anything, even the foods you consider healthy. Stop first and seek My advice before eating anything. Then watch and see what I will do. This is nothing new to you. We’ve done this routine before. 

Yes Lord, we have. But I backslid. Now look at me, a backslider.

Child, stop. Now you aren’t looking at Me. Rather, you are looking at yourself. Didn’t I just say “Keep your eyes on Me, seek My advice, then watch and see what I will do?” 

Yes Sir. So what about my eating plan for today?

It is good. 

Lord, what about tonight? What’s your will for me tonight? Do I go visit my friend? Should I go shopping instead? Should I call her? Lord, what do I do? Where do I go?

Child, I will lead you. You’re concerned about too many things. Your main job is to focus on Me. Seek My Presence first, over and above all else. 

Okay Lord, lead me. Help me to please You in all I do, all I say, all I think, and even what I eat. Renew my heart and my mind. Make them Yours. Help me focus on what You want me to focus on- Your will and Your love.

“Am I a God near at hand,” says the Lord, “and not a God far off? Can anyone hide himself in secret places, so I shall not see him?” says the Lord. . .                     Jeremiah 23:23,24

          I will instruct you and teach you in the way you should go, I will guide you with My eye. Psalm 32:8 

But those who wait for the Lord [who expect, look for, and hope in Him] will gain new strength and renew their power. They will lift up their wings [and rise up close to God] like eagles. They will run and not become weary, they will walk and not grow tired. Isaiah 40:31 AMP

Lord, What do You Want?

So Lord, what do You want with me?

I want your love. Not your performance, just your love.

Lord, am I sidetracked?

You have been.

So what do I do now?

Come to Me and listen.

Okay Lord, here I am. Now Lord, what do You want with me? What do You say?

I love you and I died for you. In fact, I’m here to help you. Come to Me. Bring all of you, all that you are, and all your dreams to Me. Allow Me to fill you with Myself, My Holy Spirit.

Fill me Lord, fill me. Lead me, guide me. Because I want to do Your will.

The Sovereign Lord has given me His words of wisdom, so that I know how to comfort the weary. Morning by morning He wakens me and opens my understanding to His will. Isaiah 50: 4 NLT

____________________________

Lord, what do You want with me? I don’t feel like I have enough time. So what can I do? I want to be there for my family. I want to write books and I want my house clean too.  In addition to all else, I want to help others. There just isn’t enough time for me to do it all.

Child, if you look to Me as you go through each day, I will lead you with every step. I will guide you with My eye. Now give Me a tithe of your time. Then you will see an increase of your time.

Alright Lord, how do I give you a time tithe. How do I give You this?

(24 hours a day x 7 days = 168 hours weekly.  168 divided by ten = 16.8. Rounded to 17 hours weekly.  Tithe of 17 hours weekly minus 4 hours each Sunday at church & 1 hour on Wednesday for choir = 12 hours divided by 6 = 2 hours daily. )

So Lord, how do I give You two hours a day? Help me.

Child, I want to be with you all throughout your day. I want you aware of My Presence all throughout your day. In fact, I want to be with you in everything you do. 

Lord, help me.

Child, as you go throughout your day, sing just for the joy of it. During the shutdown last year, you quit singing for joy. You had no joy.  Now I want you to sing again. So sing when you work and when you’re by yourself. 

For now quit seeking the words of others and seek Me. Overall seek My Presence and I will fill your steps with joy and peace. 

Spend your precious time with Me first and I will increase your time.  Since I am God and I can do anything including multiply your time, come to Me first. 

No, you don’t have to give up sleep to get more time in your day. Because I will enable you to accomplish twice a much in your earthy hours. Remember I created the earth and I created time. Therefore I am the God of  all eternity. So do you think time limits Me? I say not. 

So come to Me first with your day. Then watch and see what I do with your time. 

Yes Sir.

So come to Me and I will give you rest.

 

Seek My Presence

Seek My Presence
Seek My Presence

My Child, seek My Presence, rest in My love. Know I’m not a performance-based God. No, instead it’s My desire for you to seek and enjoy My Presence. So cease from your striving for perfection and enjoy My company, My Presence. 

You can never achieve even your own performance standards. So let go and just enjoy My Presence. For My Presence is sweetness for your soul. My Presence will fill you with peace and joy unspeakable. 

My love for you is not based off what you do. Instead My love for you is based off what I’ve done. You can’t earn My love by your so-called good performance. My love is freely given to you for no reason except I want to give it. I want to give you My love- not a “to do” list. I just want to love My people  and help them to know my love deep within their hearts.Seek My Presence

This is My focus- to exchange love with My people. I love them and I long for them to love Me. They’re not to strive to earn My love. After all it can’t be earned for the price is too high and no one can pay it, no matter how rich they are. But I freely give My love to each and everyone, no matter their walk in life. I am concerned over each individual. And I reach out in My love to all, to each and every single one.

People have been so beat up with all their man-created religious rules. They beat up on each other, full of judgements and accusations. Then they compare themselves to each other to measure their own performance standards. And all I want to do is love them. 

But Lord, what about all those rules You gave to Moses and all those rules in Leviticus?

Child, each one of those rules were to make their lives better and easier. Living by those rules will bring you a better life versus the concept of “do whatever you want to”. If you look at those who follow the philosophy of “do whatever makes you happy”, they are miserable.

Your victory is assured
Because of Me, your victory is assured.

Selfishness causes much heartache. The rules I gave help bring order and peace. When people do whatever makes them happy by living for their own selfish desires, it causes much pain and heartache. I knew selfishness caused misery, so I gave My rules as a gift of wisdom. 

People think if they only please themselves then they would be free to enjoy their lives in their own pleasure. But it doesn’t work that way. 

It’s only living a life in My Presence that brings true peace, joy, love, and deliverance. It’s only My love that sets people free to truly enjoy their lives.

These rules are to guide them until they come to know My love. When My Presence and My love rule over their hearts, then they won’t need to be concerned with rules, for I will lead them and guide them to an abundant free life, full of joy and peace. My love is the answer for all their questions.

I do not expect perfection from My children, for I know they are weak and frail humans. But I do long for their love.

Seek His Presence

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

Seek the Lord while He may be found , call upon Him while He is near. Isaiah 55:6

But it is good for me to draw near to God; I have put my trust in the Lord God, that I may declare all Your works. Psalm 73:28

We love Him because He first loved us. 1 John 4:19

For by grace you have been saved through faith, and that not of yourselves; it is the gift of god, not of works, lest anyone should boast. Ephesians 2:8,9

You Are Not A Failure


You are not a failure.

Child, know that you’re not a failure. For you are Mine and I will forgive all your failures, but you are not a failure. Your victory is here now. Continue reading You Are Not A Failure
