"I Do Not Want My People To Struggle"
I heard the Lord say, "I do not want My People to struggle." So, I wrote down the next things the Lord said:
"When I called My People to walk with Me in intimacy and in My paths, I did not intend that they would struggle in their relationship with Me, but I intended that they would yield fully to Me and enjoy My Presence each day. I have desired that My People would delight themselves in the knowledge of Me and also with Me. I do not struggle in Myself to know you, nor do I struggle to find or to seek you. Yet, My People struggle with knowing Me. Know that I am within you, and I am always with you! I am aware of you at all times! I want you to become even more conscious of Me within you and with you. I want My People to cultivate our relationship even more. I want them to open wide unto Me. I want to reveal Myself to each of you in even more deeper ways, so that I can satisfy your deep longings and desires. I want to also lift you each higher."
"I chose each of you before I ever made you, and I chose for you each to be born in this generation for My purpose. I have not forgotten one thing that I have planned for you, nor am I unaware of everything that is happening right now, for I made your paths for you. I made them in such a way, that you would find Me and know Me in each step you take. I have tailor made your lives to match My desire for you, and so that you as you did, you would know My joy. I take great joy in being with you and in walking with you. I do not take pleasure when you doubt Me or choose to walk away from Me in your choices. I made you for fellowship with Me, and also for you to come into an understanding of the things that I have for you to do in the earth."
"I want My People to walk in the joy of My liberty each day, as they commune with Me in intimacy. The days activities are not to dampen My voice within you, nor are they to block out My face as you go. I want you to learn to see Me wherever you are, and to hear Me speaking wherever you go. I am with you always. You need not ever be without My council or My help, for I am surely your only source of Life! I desire to flow through you at all times, you just have to draw upon Me from within you. I am speaking in the earth, in the heavens, and in My People. But do you see Me, and do you hear Me? Listen, and understand that I shall not fail to fulfill My part of your life. I also do not desire that you fail to fulfill your parts, so I am reminding you that you must open your spirit more fully to Me, so that I can fully live through you and accomplish My full will through your lives."
"You must sharpen your awareness of Me, and shake off the slumber that keeps you from being ever mindful of Me. Do not struggle to know Me, for I am within you, and you only need to open more fully to Me, and you shall see Me and hear Me even more clearer. There is nothing to fear in the earth, nor in the heavens, but you are to fear and reverence Me alone. I am in full control of all things in the earth and also in the heavens. But why do My Children still become anxious as they go? It is time to draw from deep within yourself, and as you do, you will tap into a deep reservoir from within your spirits, and it shall cause you each to rise up and stand tall, even among those who live among the shallow, dry places in their lives. You are to be My fiery witnesses, and you must show them the way to commune with Me, by the mirror of your own intimacy with Me!"
"I am revealing Myself to those who seek for Me and to those who call out for Me. I know each one, and I know how to speak to them and to reveal Myself to them, so that they can receive Me. I do not struggle to save My Children, No! I have made the way, for each to come to Me everyday. I know the very minute they shall open fully to Me, and I also know those who will turn the other way, and also who will walk away from Me. You are not to struggle in your lives trying to gain favor with men to make spiritual advances for Me. No! I have already laid out your course, just walk it with Me, and live it with Me! Remember, I am the Door by which you come in and go out, each and every day. I lead you through each day, and I provide for you each faithfully, each step of the way. I will bring you out into the fullness of each day that I have ordained for you. Know that this is true! You just have to walk with Me, and trust in Me, and I will surely fulfill My Words concerning you! Do not struggle to figure things out, but know that I am at work and I am opening up new things for you. Do not struggle in your thoughts, but let Me in more! Let Me have your fears and your doubts and your troubles, and let My inner peace within you break out!"
"I am the past, the present, and also the future. I made all things, and just as the works of death are still working in the earth, so also are My works! I came to destroy the works of death, of sin, and of the devil. You are to do this also, and you do this by walking with Me, and by obeying all that I tell you to do, and by embracing all that I reveal to you and also teach you. It is time for change, and even for great change. You must learn to flow with Me as the changes come. I am teaching you as you go, so that I can accomplish all that I desire within the new days ahead of you. If you will let Me do this, then My joy and peace will fill your heart and mind, and you will greatly and deeply shine!"
Scriptures the Lord quickened to me:
Psalms 139:15 My frame was not hidden from You when I was being formed in secret [and] intricately and curiously wrought [as if embroidered with various colors] in the depths of the earth [a region of darkness and mystery]. 16 Your eyes saw my unformed substance, and in Your book all the days [of my life] were written before ever they took shape, when as yet there was none of them. 17 How precious and weighty also are Your thoughts to me, O God! How vast is the sum of them!
Hebrews 3:10 And so I was provoked (displeased and sorely grieved) with that generation, and said, They always err and are led astray in their hearts, and they have not perceived or recognized My ways and become progressively better and more experimentally and intimately acquainted with them.
Proverbs 8:17 I love those who love me, and those who seek me early and diligently shall find me.
Jeremiah 29:13 Then you will seek Me, inquire for, and require Me [as a vital necessity] and find Me when you search for Me with all your heart.
Joel 2:12 Therefore also now, says the Lord, turn and keep on coming to Me with all your heart, with fasting, with weeping, and with mourning [until every hindrance is removed and the broken fellowship is restored].
Romans 6:9 Because we know that Christ (the Anointed One), being once raised from the dead, will never die again; death no longer has power over Him. 10 For by the death He died, He died to sin [ending His relation to it] once for all; and the life that He lives, He is living to God [in unbroken fellowship with Him]. 11 Even so consider yourselves also dead to sin and your relation to it broken, but alive to God [living in unbroken fellowship with Him] in Christ Jesus.
John 10:9 I am the Door; anyone who enters in through Me will be saved (will live). He will come in and he will go out [freely], and will find pasture.
Romans 8:28 And we know that to them that love God all things work together for good, even to them that are called according to his purpose. 29 For whom he foreknew, he also foreordained to be conformed to the image of his Son, that he might be the firstborn among many brethren:
1 John 4:15 Anyone who confesses (acknowledges, owns) that Jesus is the Son of God, God abides (lives, makes His home) in him and he [abides, lives, makes his home] in God. 16 And we know (understand, recognize, are conscious of, by observation and by experience) and believe (adhere to and put faith in and rely on) the love God cherishes for us. God is love, and he who dwells and continues in love dwells and continues in God, and God dwells and continues in him. 17 In this [union and communion with Him] love is brought to completion and attains perfection with us, that we may have confidence for the day of judgment [with assurance and boldness to face Him], because as He is, so are we in this world.
1 John 2:13 I am writing to you, fathers, because you have come to know (recognize, be aware of, and understand) Him Who [has existed] from the beginning. I am writing to you, young men, because you have been victorious over the wicked [one]. I write to you, boys (lads), because you have come to know (recognize and be aware) of the Father. 14 I write to you, fathers, because you have come to know (recognize, be conscious of, and understand) Him Who [has existed] from the beginning. I write to you, young men, because you are strong and vigorous, and the Word of God is [always] abiding in you (in your hearts), and you have been victorious over the wicked one. 15 Do not love or cherish the world or the things that are in the world. If anyone loves the world, love for the Father is not in him.
Acts 22:14 And he said, The God of our forefathers has destined and appointed you to come progressively to know His will [to perceive, to recognize more strongly and clearly, and to become better and more intimately acquainted with His will], and to see the Righteous One (Jesus Christ, the Messiah), and to hear a voice from His [own] mouth and a message from His [own] lips; 15 For you will be His witness unto all men of everything that you have seen and heard.
Philippians 3:8 Yes, furthermore, I count everything as loss compared to the possession of the priceless privilege (the overwhelming preciousness, the surpassing worth, and supreme advantage) of knowing Christ Jesus my Lord and of progressively becoming more deeply and intimately acquainted with Him [of perceiving and recognizing and understanding Him more fully and clearly]. 10 [For my determined purpose is] that I may know Him [that I may progressively become more deeply and intimately acquainted with Him, perceiving and recognizing and understanding the wonders of His Person more strongly and more clearly], and that I may in that same way come to know the power outflowing from His resurrection [which it exerts over believers], and that I may so share His sufferings as to be continually transformed [in spirit into His likeness even] to His death, [in the hope]
Ephesians 3:16 May He grant you out of the rich treasury of His glory to be strengthened and reinforced with mighty power in the inner man by the [Holy] Spirit [Himself indwelling your innermost being and personality]. 17 May Christ through your faith [actually] dwell (settle down, abide, make His permanent home) in your hearts! May you be rooted deep in love and founded securely on love, 18 That you may have the power and be strong to apprehend and grasp with all the saints [God's devoted people, the experience of that love] what is the breadth and length and height and depth [of it]; 19 [That you may really come] to know [practically, through experience for yourselves] the love of Christ, which far surpasses mere knowledge [without experience]; that you may be filled [through all your being] unto all the fullness of God [may have the richest measure of the divine Presence, and become a body wholly filled and flooded with God Himself]! 20 Now to Him Who, by (in consequence of) the [action of His] power that is at work within us, is able to [carry out His purpose and] do superabundantly, far over and above all that we [dare] ask or think [infinitely beyond our highest prayers, desires, thoughts, hopes, or dreams]--
Luke 4:43 But He said to them, I must preach the good news (the Gospel) of the kingdom of God to the other cities [and towns] also, for I was sent for this [purpose].
Acts 26:16 But arise and stand upon your feet; for I have appeared to you for this purpose, that I might appoint you to serve as [My] minister and to bear witness both to what you have seen of Me and to that in which I will appear to you,
Ephesians 6:10 In conclusion, be strong in the Lord [be empowered through your union with Him]; draw your strength from Him [that strength which His boundless might provides].
Matthew 28:19 Go ye therefore, and teach all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father, and of the Son, and of the Holy Ghost: 20 Teaching them to observe all things whatsoever I have commanded you: and, lo, I am with you always, even unto the end of the world. Amen.
