Do Not Strive In Your Mind To Walk With Me
Do Not Strive In Your Mind To Walk With Me
Child, do not strive in your mind to walk with Me. Just as I am one with you, and you are also a part of Me, I want you to know that there is to be no struggle in our union or in our mutual flowing. Remember, I do not struggle in my relationship with you, nor do I struggle to know you; yet you struggle in both areas with Me. You must open your spirit to Me more and do not allow your mind or thoughts to hinder your growth with Me. I do not live within your mind, but I dwell within your spirit. I speak to your mind with My thoughts, but they originate from within your spirit, where I speak to you from. So, it is within that place, your spirit, that our relationship develops and also grows. I do not want you to struggle in your mind or thoughts anymore regarding your position with Me. Submit your mind and your thoughts to Me, to My Word, and to your own spirit, for that is where your authority lies. You are a Spirit, and you are to rule over your thoughts in your soul and also your flesh; and you are to bring them into subjection to Me, and to My Word. Do not allow your thoughts to become cluttered with fears and worries regarding this life and it's directions. But commit yourself fully to Me and let Me guide you in the full freedom that comes from knowing and walking with Me.
I have a path of liberty for you. I have a path of clarity for you. I have a path of truth for you, and when you yield to Me, then you can walk in the freedom that comes from walking in the Truth, that I am. I am the Light that you walk by, and that you walk on. Would I not also bring you by the very way that I have already prepared for you beforehand? Yes! I have already walked it and lived it for you, even until the end. Commit that very path all to Me, and trust in My knowledge of you and of your future, and enter into My Rest. It is time that you cease from your struggles and that you learn to fully abide in Me. I will show you what to do each day, and give you the wisdom and abilities needed for the tasks ahead. Nothing has come to you or has gone by you without My participation with you in it all. I am more than able to bring you fully through, and also into the fullness that you see just ahead of you. Walk on Child, and yield to My Hands that guide you everyday, and know that as you do, you shall come to know and enjoy My Presence with you, every step of the way!
There is no fear in My Path for you. I am not the author of fear, nor do I acknowledge fear, for fear has no place in Me or in you. I am the author and finisher of your faith, and this is to be your constant companion, faith. I acknowledge and respond to faith, and I also reward those who believe in Me. Take no thought of the fears that plague men who know not Me, but walk with Me in the knowledge of My Love for you and in the simplicity that faith brings. For through faith and by faith are all things upheld and sustained. Nothing that is joined to Me can ever fall, ever fail, or ever be removed from My Love or Care. Look unto Me and realize that things are not as you think or perceive them to be, and choose to reaffirm your faith in Me and step forward and begin to walk in My Liberty for you today. I am moving in your midst, and everything will change as we progress, so do not be afraid of change, but know that it is part of our relationship and your ultimate journey. See what I see, and delight yourself fully in Me. I will bring forth every desire that is born from within Mine, and together we will finish the Fathers Design!
Proverbs 16:2 All the ways of a man are pure in his own eyes, but the Lord weighs the spirits (the thoughts and intents of the heart).
Ezekiel 11:5 And the Spirit of the Lord fell upon me, and He said to me, Speak. Say, Thus says the Lord: This is what you thought, O house of Israel, for I know the things that come into your mind.
1 Corinthians 2:11 For what person perceives (knows and understands) what passes through a man's thoughts except the man's own spirit within him? Just so no one discerns (comes to know and comprehend) the thoughts of God except the Spirit of God.
Galatians 5:5 For we, [not relying on the Law but] through the [Holy] Spirit's [help], by faith anticipate and wait for the blessing and good for which our righteousness and right standing with God [our conformity to His will in purpose, thought, and action, causes us] to hope.
Hebrews 4:12 For the Word that God speaks is alive and full of power [making it active, operative, energizing, and effective]; it is sharper than any two-edged sword, penetrating to the dividing line of the breath of life (soul) and [the immortal] spirit, and of joints and marrow [of the deepest parts of our nature], exposing and sifting and analyzing and judging the very thoughts and purposes of the heart.
Hebrews 12:1 THEREFORE THEN, since we are surrounded by so great a cloud of witnesses [who have borne testimony to the Truth], let us strip off and throw aside every encumbrance (unnecessary weight) and that sin which so readily (deftly and cleverly) clings to and entangles us, and let us run with patient endurance and steady and active persistence the appointed course of the race that is set before us, 2 Looking away [from all that will distract] to Jesus, Who is the Leader and the Source of our faith [giving the first incentive for our belief] and is also its Finisher [bringing it to maturity and perfection]. He, for the joy [of obtaining the prize] that was set before Him, endured the cross, despising and ignoring the shame, and is now seated at the right hand of the throne of God.
Ephesians 2:10 For we are God's [own] handiwork (His workmanship), recreated in Christ Jesus, [born anew] that we may do those good works which God predestined (planned beforehand) for us [taking paths which He prepared ahead of time], that we should walk in them [living the good life which He prearranged and made ready for us to live].
