I Am Afraid

 

What are yhou afraid of?
What are you afraid of?

Child, what are you afraid of?

Lord I am afraid the world is going crazy. Our leaders are crooked and I’m not sure I trust the ones that are supposed to be helping our USA. We are in trouble.

Our land is being invaded. Twenty-five of our states are taking a stand to protect themselves because they know they can’t depend on the leaders we have now to protect them. We have so many corrupt leaders now.There’s a war in the Middle East, I saw pictures/videos of what those Hamas did. It’s beyond my comprehension how one group of humans could be so evil to another group. And it seems as though a lot of people have now turned against the victim country that was attacked and supporting the evil attackers. Lord that is crazy. Has the world gone crazy? Is the world now overran by evil everywhere?

And all over the world, your people, the Christians are being put in prison, rejected by their families, beaten or even slaughtered because they love you. It seems the world is full of hate and evil.  Is there any good out there?

Child, I am good. Because I am love, I will win over evil, all evil. And yes, that is why I told you to withdraw from all media, both social and your news sources too. For I knew it would be overwhelming to you. Now I tell you again, “Don’t look at what you see. Instead look at Me. Don’t be afraid.” For I am the answer to all your questions.

Lord, why don’t you just evaporate all those evil ones who kill, steal, and destroy  as Satan wants them to? It wouldn’t take me long, especially to those who harm innocent children, and babies.

Child that’s why you’re not God and I AM The time for judgement will come soon enough. But I love those evil ones too, just as I love you.  

But lord, why? They deserve death, a death just as horrible as they committed.

My child, all deserve death, even you. No one can be good enough to escape death, just as no one can deserve forgiveness.  Remember how I was on that cross, how I ask my Father to forgive them for they know not what they do. It’s the same today, Evil people believe the lies of Satan who tells them to kill, steal, and destroy. Because those actions give him pleasure and delight when he beholds my children committing such atrocities.

Victory Over Fear

I am a God of love and forgiveness, not killing or destruction. I do not wipe out the evil ones because I’m giving them time to repent and turn from evil. Even so, they will suffer the consequences of their choices and actions. Because for every action there is an equal reaction. (look up)

Indeed I came to offer all of mankind, including the evil ones, hope for a new life, eternal life. It’s up to each one to choose whom they will serve.

But Lord, what about the suffering and killing of the innocents?

Child there has always been suffering and killing of the innocents ever since sin entered into the world I created. For instance, Able was the first innocent to be murdered. And it has continued on since. Evil has sought to rule the world.

But what evil does not realize is that I will win. I always win. That was the whole purpose of the cross, to bring victory over evil and death. Yes, the innocents have been suffering from the evil ones since the beginning of time. But rest assured, I have each innocent one with me to suffer no more.

Those evil ones, unless they turn from their evil and repent, will suffer all throughout eternity. Remember, I provided for them a choice for forgiveness. But they chose to turn away from my offer of love and forgiveness. So they made their choice for eternal damnation. They made their choice.Now Child, rest your mind in peace. Do not be afraid. Don’t you know that I hold you and all yours in my hand. I will work out all things in your life for your good. As long as you seek my guidance, I will personally lead you to the victory I’ve already planned for you. Now quit worrying and go to sleep, let your body and mind rest in my peace.

I love you, my child.

I love you too, my Lord. Help me to please you in all I do, say, eat, drink, and even my thoughts too.Thank you Lord for loving me. I don’t deserve it.

God Wants Relationship

 

God wants relationship
God wants a relationship with you.

God wants a relationship with you. The greatest desire of His heart is to have a relationship with you. Yes, YOU.

Below is one of my early morning conversations with Him about our relationship.

God wants relationship
God wants to start a relationship with you today.

But know this, what He speaks to my heart, He also means the same for you. In fact, He loves you more than you can ever know. And He will even use your own weight loss struggles to reach your heart.

Our Conversation:

Child, I’m calling you unto Myself. I’m calling you unto Me. Your relationship with Me is more important versus any “work” you could do for Me. What I desire most is your heart toward Me.

Yes Sir. Help me Lord to love You as You desire. Help me to obey You in all things.

Child, I will lead you as you seek Me.

Thank you Lord for the weight loss in spite of the cake I ate last night.

Child, you’re thinking too small. Just as the story of the lottery winner who said, “Now I can buy a double wide”, you’re thinking too small. Now come unto Me and I will fill your mind with possibilities.

I will renew your mind and make it Mine. So come to Me and let go of all that stubble. I’ll show you what’s most important. I will show you great and mighty things.

Yes Sir. Is my prayer list okay?

Yes, but I’d rather converse with you versus hearing your rote list. Although I do realize lists help you stay focused. So it’s alright. What’s most important to Me is our relationship together.

Yes Sir. Help me to please You in all my ways, actions, words, thoughts, and even my food choices.

Child, what you need is a vacation. But more than a trip, your mind needs to rest in My Presence. That’s where your strength comes from, My Presence. So come to Me for I have much to say to you.

And Child, My words will be more encouraging than any other words you could hear. Allow Me to speak to your heart and mind. Allow Me to fill you with My encouragement.

Obey Me in this and you’ll see a great turnaround in your life.
Let go of all else and come to Me. Then watch and see what I do in your life. Because I do have great plans for you, plans for a hope and a future.

God Wants Relationship

The words He speaks to me also applies to you as well. In fact, God is no respecter of persons. What He means for one, goes the same for all His children. Seek His Presence today. You’ll never regret it. You will find joy and peace in His Presence.

For I know the thoughts that I think toward you, says the Lord, thoughts of peace and not of evil, to give you a future and a hope. Then you will call upon Me and go and pray to Me, and I will listen to you. Jeremiah 29:11-12 NKJV

 

 

What Makes Success

 

What makes success?

Lord, what makes success?

Child, it’s not money or fame. But rather it’s My Presence, My love, and My forgiveness. It’s the peace, strength, and joy I give to one as they go through events of their life.  Overall, it’s My Presence guiding and leading each life that creates true success.

In fact, the more of My Presence you have, the greater your success will be. When I fill your heart and soul with My love and you share My love with others, then you will have true success.

The measure of unselfish love in your life is a measure of success in your life. The amount of My love within a life is the true measure of success.

People speak of inner peace. But it is only through My Presence that one can experience the true inner peace that never fails. I love as no one else can love. Experiencing My love and peace is the greatest victory you can have.

What the world sees as success is not how I see it. But I look at the heart. Above all else, a heart full of My love is the greatest measure of success and victory.

Child, I love you.

Lord, I love you too. So help me to please you in all I do and say.

WHAT MAKES ME OVEREAT?

What makes me overeat?
What makes me overeat? Will I ever lose weight and gain victory?

Lord, what makes me overeat?

Child, it’s your spirit that’s hungry. But you’ve been feeding yourself. The real issue is that you hunger for My Presence, but you’re going to food instead of Me.

So Lord, what am I to do? How can I defeat these cravings that drive me crazy? What makes me overeat like I do?

Also I feel ashamed of talking to You about my food when there’s so much suffering and heartache in the world. But what am I to do?

Child, go back to the original plan I gave you. Back then during your first 40 days of eating according to My instructions, you were very careful to eat half portions.

Know that it’s not half your food I desire, it’s your submissive heart before Me I desire. As long as you’re holding on to food in your hand, you can’t receive your victory that I’m holding in My hand.

Why you ask? I’ll tell you why. Back then you believed. Now you expect defeat and failure.

Back then when I first told you what to do, your thought was, “I can do this.” Now your thought is “I can’t do this.” That’s your main issue, your belief.

If you think you can’t, you’re right. You can’t.

But you forget, “I can.”

But Lord, are you going to take the food out of my hand?

No, I’m going to take the desire out of your heart.

I don’t see that happening.

Don’t sass Me. Trust Me instead. As it is said, “You’re on thin ice.”

Yes Sir. But . . . it’s just I don’t know what to do.

Do exactly as I’ve instructed you. As you follow and obey My instructions, then you will see victory.

But Lord, what makes me overeat like this? I can’t control myself. Why?

Overall it’s your heart that’s the problem. You love food pleasure more than Me.

Oh Lord, I’m so sorry. How can I change?

Child, you can’t. But I can. It’s time for you to have heart surgery- a circumcised  heart before Me. As you submit yourself to Me, I will cut away portions of food-love from your heart.

But you must come to Me daily (sometimes by the minute) for your heart circumcise surgery. As you come to Me, I will remove the part of your heart that loves food. And I will fill your heart with love for Me and others too.

Carry a small notebook with you. When you want to eat, write prayers to Me and for others. So you’ll replace food pleasure with intercession for others. This will fulfill two needs, the needs of others for prayer and the need of you to resist temptation for food pleasure.

My original plan for fasting was to change hearts and replace food consumption with God interaction.

So you’ll replace food consumption with intercession for others. This is a good plan, for it will fulfill two needs, the needs of others and your need to resist temptation.

Instead of your time being used eating, you will now be using time for intercession. This is a good plan.

Also be careful about your portions. That’s a visual of your submission heart, not a greedy heart wanting it all. It’s your submissive heart I desire. It’s your love I desire most of all. I’m not a controlling God that demands obedience. No, I am a God that longs for your love above all else.

It’s the love of food that destroys, robs you of your victory

It will be My love that grants you victory.

Open Your Eyes

Open Your Eyes - See My victory
Open your eyes. See My victory!

Just open your eyes to what I AM doing. As you look, you’ll behold My power working throughout Earth.

Remember when that child laid his hand on your shoulder to pray for you? That was one of My miracles. Consider how I moved- a young child praying at the altar for a grandmother who was praying for her grandchildren. Now that, My child, is a miracle. Two hearts of different generations praying for each other at the altar. That is a miracle indeed.

Now this day open your eyes and look for My miracles and My Presence working in different lives. And thank Me for each victory you see. Expect many victories coming forth for I will have My way and I always win. I AM the winner over and above all. Now watch and see what I will do.

 

Much is coming forth, miracles, signs, wonders, and revelations of the truth. In fact, I will recognized as the winner over all others. My kingdom will come and My “Will” will be done on Earth as in Heaven. So watch and see what I will do. If you open your eyes, you will see My miracles everywhere you look.

Yes Sir. Thank you Lord. Help me to praise You all throughout my life. Thank you for talking to me to encourage me when I get overwhelmed by all the news.

How many times, My child, do I have to remind you, “Don’t look at what you see, especially in your so-called news. But instead, look to Me. Keep your eyes looking to Me.”

Yes Sir. Thank you for reminding me. I love You.

I love you too, My child. In fact, I love all of My children.

OPEN YOUR EYES AND PRAY:

Our Father in Heaven, hallowed be Your Name. Your kingdom come. Your will be done on earth as it is in Heaven’

Give us this day our daily bread.

And forgive us our debts, as we forgive our debtors.

And do not lead us into temptation, but deliver us from the evil one.

For Yours is the kingdom and the power and the glory forever. Amen.

Matthews 6:9-13 NKJV

Not Performance Based God

I'm not a performance based God
I love you, My Child. Even when you don’t love yourself, I love you more than you can imagine.

Child, remember I’m not a performance based God. Rather, I am a loved based God. And I love you just as you are, warts and all. You’re too hard on yourself. Yes, you strive too much, you worry too much, and you self-criticize too much. 

Child, just focus on worship and praise. Then all will fall into place as it should, for I am in charge of all things. And I \AM working out all things for your good and My glory.

Trust Me in all things. Then watch and see what I will do. After all, I split the Red Sea for the Israelites to walk through. Do you think the issues in your life are bigger than the Red Sea?

No Sir.

Then trust Me. Thank Me for what you see that I am doing. Also thank Me for what you don’t see I am doing for I AM working out all things for the good according to My will.

Even when mankind go their own way to do their own thing according to their free will to choose, I still turn things around. I still work out all things for the good of those who love Me.

But Lord, what about those who are tortured and killed because they chose You?

I am with them giving them strength to make it through their hardships. Then I take them home to be with Me. Their rewards are great. In fact their rewards are greater than you can know or imagine. In fact I am with them through it all.

Know this, it is the enemy who comes to kill, steal, and destroy. But I have come to give new life and abundant life. So trust Me.

Everyday there are miracles. Just open your eyes to see them. As you look, you will behold My power working throughout the Earth.

Now quit criticizing yourself so much. Remember, I am not a performance based God. Instead I am a love based God. And My love is greater than you can imagine.

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.

Surrender Is The Key

Surrender is the key to victory and prosperity.

Surrender is the key to victory.
Surrender is the key to victory.

Child, surrender is the key to victory and prosperity.  As you surrender yourself, your heart, your dreams, and your desires I will bless you.

Lord, I don’t know what to write.

Child, I’ll give you the words to speak, but first you must surrender all.  You must feed yourself . Before you can help others, you must first feed yourself My Word and My Presence first. 

Yes Sir.

Just as on a plane, the parent should put on their oxygen mask first. Then put the mask on the child next. So feed yourself and take in the breathe of My Holy Spirit.

Surrender is the key.
Because of Me, your victory is assured.

Take in the breathe of My Holy Spirit, My Presence first, and before all else. Then you can help others.

Feed on My Word and My Presence. Then you will receive power to defeat your enemies, especially your greatest enemy, Satan.

After all, his desire is to keep you defeated and discouraged. So feed on My Word and My Presence, My Holy Spirit, therein you will find power. 

Now Child, clean up your own backyard, your eating habits, your heart, and your attitudes. Quit worrying about the future. Take one day at a time, one day.

Make it your goal to seek My will and then follow My will. For what good is it if you ask for advice and then never follow it? 

So your focus should be surrender first. Then look to Me for your instructions. Next, follow how I lead you. Surrender is the key to your victory and a successful life of victory.

  1. Surrender.
  2. Look to Me and listen for instructions.
  3. Follow, trust, and obey how I lead you.

Your job is not a quota. Your job is surrender. That’s your focus, surrender, the first key to unlock your victory. 

Yes Sir.

Child, keep your eyes on Me and your heart surrendered to me. Let go of all that is in your hand. Then open your hand to receive what I have for you. It’s beyond your expectation. Keep your eyes on Me.

Child, as you surrender to My will (especially your food), I will make you stronger. As you let go, I will increase your strength. Now let go. 

Yes Sir. Surrender is the key.

Let go of it all and come before Me, completely surrendered and empty of all that clutters your heart, and your mind. Allow Me to fill you with Myself. 

Quit wishing for more time and accomplish what I tell you to do, in the time I give you. I will give you all the time you need to accomplish all, all the tasks I assign you. 

Seek My will each day. Then watch and see what I will do with your time. I can multiply it. 

Your key to success is surrender. So therefore, surrender your self and all you are, all your dreams, desires, and wishes. Surrender your all to Me. Then watch and see what I do. 

So quit trying to figure everything out. Just focus on surrender, As you take each step in surrender, I will lead you to your own personal victory. 

Child, quit trying on your own. Give it all to Me.

Yes sir. Lord, take it. Take me. I give myself to thee. Do with me as your wish.

Child, do not fear for I am with you

Surrender is the Key

Look to the Lord and His strength, seek His face always. Psalms 105:4 

“For I know the plans I have for you,” declares the Lord, “plans to prosper you and not to harm you, plans to give you hope and a future.” Jeremiah 29:11

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.
