What Would You Choose?

What would you choose?

Child, what would you choose? What if you were called to give up your pleasure food in exchange for the pleasure of My glory?

Oh Lord, I want to choose You. But I am weak.

Child, quit saying you’re weak. You are strong. http://talkingtomyweightlosscounselor.com/say-i-am-strong/

If you’re full of My Presence, then you’re strong. For I AM all powerful. And I can pull You out of this miry mud of self-indulgence.

Don’t you know that if you have My Presence, you have all you need?

What would you choose?

My children need to witness victory in the lives of those who identify with Me. My children need to see victory, not defeat.

People can lose weight with a strict diet. But you know it’s the minds and the hearts that needs changing. The desire for pleasure foods needs to be replaced with a desire for My Presence.

Habits need changing. You have the habit of relaxing after your evening meal with your pleasure food. So why are you seeking pleasure for that which does not satisfy?

Don’t you know yet that true satisfaction and peace beyond comprehension can only be found in My Presence? So what would you choose?

Yes Lord, I want Your Presence and the fullness of Your Holy Spirit.

Then come to Me, My Child. Come into My Presence. Allow Me to bless you with My Holy Spirit. I’m calling you forth to a higher walk, a higher place of victory.

Now come forth into My Presence and allow Me to fill You with Myself.

Yes Lord, here I am. Take my struggles, my defeat, my pride, my worry, and all my concerns. Take My heart and mind, including my thoughts.

Child, I don’t take anything from you. Not anything. You have to give them to me. Satan steals and takes. But I only receive as you give to Me. I never take.

Okay Lord. Then I give you my heart, my mind, my will, and my pride. I also give You all my failures, mess-ups, defeats, and shame. Lord, I’m a mess.

So what would you choose?
What would you choose?

But I give myself to thee.

Child, I will change you into what I designed you to be, My victorious child, full of My glory, My Presence, and My Holy Spirit.

The oil of Gilead will anoint your eyes so you see the truth versus the lies of Satan. You will know the truth. Therefore the truth will set you free to live a life of victory.

Satan has enjoyed beating you down. But now I’ll lift you up, clean you off, heal your wounds, and fill you with the nourishment of My Holy Spirit.

Then you can go forth as My servant spreading forth My joy and love to others.

First you’ll begin with those you love the most. Then you’ll spread My love and joy to the others I place in your life.

It will not be a chore to you. But rather, you’ll be filled with excitement and the thrill of victory. Then you will spread victory to others as well.

So what would you choose?

Child, in My Presence you will have peace as never before. Come to Me all throughout your day, evening morning, and noon.

Then watch what I do in your life and the lives of those you influence.

So what would you choose?

WHAT DO YOU CHOOSE?

Evening and morning and at noon I will pray and cry aloud. And He shall hear my voice. He has redeemed my soul in peace from the battle that was against me. Psalms 55: 17-18

Pray with without ceasing. 1 Thessalonians 5:17 NKJV

Let the weak say, “I am strong.” Joel 3:10

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.

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.

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

You Chose Another

You chose another.
You chose another. But My child, choose My Presence instead.

Child, you chose another. But you could have had My Presence last night. My child, I want you. Choose Me.

I’ve called you to a higher purpose other than to listen to others and eat your treats.

You could have had Me, but instead you chose another.

Oh Lord, I feel like such a failure.

You’re never a failure. Instead, you’re a lesson.

Child, you’re learning with new learning everyday and I want to teach you. It’s not your “to do” list. It’s not the voice of others . But it is I who will take you into your victory.

Victory is not getting it all done. Victory IS My Presence. I gave you a way out when your friend called. But you ate your snack afterwards.

Child, when you’re looking in the refrigerator or the cabinet for something to eat, what you’re really craving is My Presence.

My Lord.

You could’ve come to Me. But you chose another.

Oh Lord, I’m so messed up.

You chose another.
Choose My Presence, for I AM peace.

Child, come to Me and I will heal you. I’ll heal you both inside and out. It’s the inside of you, your spirit that determines your behavior and your actions.

Lord, help me.

Child, your mind is on too many different things. And you have much confusion, anxiety, fear, and busywork. You strive to get it all done. The highest call you have is stay in My Presence. That’s your highest calling, not your job, not your housework, and not your hobbies.

Instead, I’m your highest calling. Your attention is on too many different things. I want your focus on My Presence. Seek Me and I will supply for all your needs. You stress unnecessarily over many things.

You chose another. But I will lead you to your victory.
You chose another. But it is I who will lead you to your victory.

Child, as long as you have My Presence, you’ll have My peace. Have no worries for I’m holding you in My hands. . . And as is My will. . . It will be done.

Remember back when you used to snatch times, different times in your day to talk to Me? Do that again. Do it again.

You need Me. You need My Presence to direct you. Satan desires to destroy your future and the influence you have on others. But I will overcome. Now come to Me to a higher place of victory.

No longer walk in defeat for I have plans for you a hope and a future, not to harm you, but to prosper you.

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

A New Day Of Victory

 

 A New Day of Victory

Today is a new day for you, a new day of victory.

But Lord, I binged last night.

Yes Child, I saw the whole thing. And it made Me sad for you. It makes Me sad when I watch as My children give up and are defeated.

A new day of victory
“Victory is yours”, says the Lord.

In spite of my failures Lord, I do want to help others.

Then Child, do what you know is right. If you stay true to what you know. Then I will bless you to help others. 

Lord, is this food shortage for real?

Yes, My Child. This baby formula was a test. In fact, it is the beginning. 

My Lord, can they be defeated?

A new day of victory
Dance and rejoice for your victory is here. Victory in Jesus.

Yes, Child. I have arranged their defeat, for I will win. Always, I AM the winner.

Lord, am I a fake?

No, My Child. Instead, you are truly a struggler. 

So how can I win?

Through My Presence and My power.

But Lord, what can I do? What do You want me to do?

Child, I want you to listen to My words. Especially listen with open ears. Then obey as I lead you. 

Also Lord, how can I contribute to help others unless I make more income?

My Child, don’t you know how I helped Jacob and many others during a famine? Do you not think I can help you? 

Child, I want your mind clear from all other voices. Because I want to speak to you Myself with My own words of encouragement. 

Lord, is my time of success over? Did I let it go?

No My Child, you lost some time. But it’s not over until I say it’s over. 

So Lord. what do I do?

Come to Me. Give Me your dreams.

Is it too late for me? Am I too old?

Child, I’m going to turn your life all around. Do you expect blessings to come to you?

Lord, I remember my Dad saying, “Pay your tithes and God will bless you.”

Yes My Child, I am blessing you. I am your sponsor and your coach. And I will lead you and teach you. Hasn’t it always been that way? 

Yes Sir.  Healing Begins Today

I’ve helped you all these years. So come to Me now. 

Yes Sir. Lord, what do I do? What do You want me to do?

In spite of what you feel or think, today is a new day for you. It’s a new day of victory.

So Lord, what do I do?

Rejoice for your victory is at hand.  In fact I’m turning all things around, even for you too. Today is a new day for you, a new day of victory.

However, victory comes through struggles. So whatever happens, keep your faith. Never give up.

Lord, at times I think I need a more powerful church.

 My Child, you are exactly where I put you.

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.

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.
