“I CELEBRATE YOU. I AM FULL OF JOY FOR THE ROAD WE ARE TAKING TOGETHER. THIS ROAD IS NOT DIFFICULT, IT IS ACTUALLY LEADING TO JOY AND YOU CAN NOW SEE IT. AS I SAID BEFORE, ‘I AM NEVER IN THE DISAPPOINTMENT BUSINESS’. WHAT YOU PERCEIVE AS DISAPPOINTMENT, I AM PREPARING FOR JOY. AND I REASSURE YOU, YOU WILL BE FULL OF JOY WHEN YOU REACH THAT LEVEL OF MATURITY I INTEND FOR YOU. YES, I CONSIDER YOU MATURE AND WISE. YOU ARE SO IN MY BOOKS. YOU JUST HAVE TO ALLOW ME TO MOLD YOU AS I AM ALREADY PLANNING TO CONTINUE TO DO. THIS ROAD IS FUN, EVEN WITH ROAD BLOCKS INCLUDED. ROAD BLOCKS DON’T HINDER ME AT ALL. DID YOU KNOW THAT? ROAD BLOCKS ARE NOT SET BACKS FOR ME. NEVER! NOT IN THEIR WILDEST DREAMS. ROAD BLOCKS ARE ACTUALLY BY MY DESIGN, THEY ARE MEANT FOR YOUR MOLDING. SWEET MOLDING. NOT BITTER TASTING. THIS IS FUN. CAN YOU TELL I AM EXCITED? I AM EXCITED BECAUSE I ALREADY KNOW AND SEE THE HAPPY ENDING. YES, THERE IS A HAPPY ENDING EVEN THOUGH YOU HAVE FELT FOR A WHILE NOW THAT YOU CAN’T PERCEIVE EVER TO REACH A HAPPY ENDING. YES, THERE IS ONE. AND I DON’T MEAN IT’S THE END OF LIFE. YOU WILL REACH THE GOALS YOU WANT BECAUSE THEY ARE INSCRIBED IN MY HEART AND MIND AND BELIEVE IT OR NOT… I AM THINKING ABOUT THEM ALL THE TIME. I AM NEVER OFF, I NEVER SLEEP. I HAVE YOUR WELL BEING IN MIND AT ALL TIMES. AND I LOVE THIS JOURNEY THAT WILL TAKE US THERE TOGETHER. YOU ALREADY SHINE LIKE A STAR. I MEAN IT. I SAID ‘HOLD ON, THIS IS ABOUT TO GET CRAZY WILD’. WHY DID YOU NOT BELIEVE? DID I NOT SAY THAT IF YOU BELIEVE, YOU WOULD SEE THE GLORY OF GOD? I LOVE YOU, KEEP BELIEVING AND KEEP WALKING”.
Good Morning, Jesus… I wanted to spend all day with you. I want to have a change in mindset how I can pursue a breakthrough in our Supernatural endeavor in Business. I ask that you fill me today with understanding. I lack so much understanding. I don’t know where to begin. I am already in a process as far as years of experience in business. How do I throw all of it away and start from scratch with a new mindset?
DID I SAY TO THROW SOMETHING AWAY? JUST GO WITH ME AND LET ME CALL THE SHOTS. IT’S SO EASY TO MAKE ASSUMPTIONS. BUT ASSUMPTIONS ARE NOT NECESSARY WHEN YOU WALK AND LIVE WITH ME BECAUSE I GUIDE YOU. DON’T DO ANYTHING OUT OF ASSUMPTION. THIS IS HARD TO DO WHEN YOU ARE NOT USED TO IT BUT IT BECOMES EASY AS YOU KEEP SUBMITTING DAILY. WE JUST WALK TOGETHER, AS EASY AS THAT. I LOVE YOU SO MUCH BECAUSE YOU DESIRE TO WALK WITH ME. I LOVE YOU REGARDLESS BUT I LOVE THE FACT THAT YOU DESIRE TO WALK WITH ME. THIS FILLS ME WITH JOY. HERE, AT THIS POINT, WE DON’T HAVE TO REPEAT PROMISES. I REASSURE YOU THAT ALL PROMISES ARE STORED IN MY HEART AND IN YOURS. WE DON’T HAVE TO REVISIT THEM DAILY. JUST LIVE WITH ME IN THOSE DREAMS WHERE WE ALREADY LIVE IN THE SPIRIT. THAT’S IT. LIVE WITH ME IN OUR DREAM. LET ME BREATH OVER YOUR DREAMS. LET ME BRING LIFE TO OUR DREAM. THIS IS OUR DREAM. IT IS NOT YOURS ALONE. AND IF MINE ALSO, I BREATH ON IT AND GIVE IT LIFE OF ITS OWN. THIS IS NOT YOUR DOING. BY NOW YOU UNDERSTAND THIS WELL ALTHOUGH YOU DON’T UNDERSTAND AT ALL. ISN’T THAT SOMETHING? I KNOW YOU UNDERSTAND THE POINT. BUT YOU NEED TO WALK IN THIS ENOUGH TO HAVE THE POINT SINK IN. HOW TO WALK WITH ME AND LET ME BREATHE LIFE INTO OUR DREAM. I LOVE YOU AND ON MY END YOU KNOW THAT I WILL NEVER LEAVE YOU NOR DISAPPOINT YOU. LET ME MAKE THAT PART CLEAR. I AM NOT HERE TO DISAPPOINT YOU. I REALLY AM NOT. I AM NOT IN THE DISAPPOINTMENT BUSINESS. I LIVE WITH YOU TO GIVE YOU JOY. THIS IS WHERE WE LIVE. IN THE JOY ZONE. AND THIS IS HOW MY JOY IS YOUR STRENGTH. LIVE IN THIS JOY ZONE WITH ME. I AM YOUR JOY.
“It’s not looking good, Jesus!!!”
“AND… SAYS WHO? WHO IS DRAWING THAT CONCLUSION? WHO HAS DECIDED IT IS NOT LOOKING GOOD? ARE YOUR CIRCUMSTANCES THE LAST OF OPTIONS? WHO DECIDES WHEN THINGS LOOK GOOD AND WHEN THINGS LOOK BAD? HAVE YOU NOT READ IN SCRIPTURE HOW MANY THINGS APPARENTLY LOOKED BAD? LAZARUS DIED. THERE WAS NO FOOD FOR 5,000 MEN. THERE WAS NO MORE WINE AT THE WEDDING. THINGS LOOKED BAD. IS THAT HOW I LEFT THEM? HAVE YOU NOT SEEN IN SCRIPTURE? HAVE YOU NOT READ? ARE YOU STILL SO UNBELIEVING? WHO HAS SET A FORMULA FOR YOU? WHO HAS SET THE MOLD THAT YOU SHOULD MEASURE UP TO? I AM HE. I AM HE WHO SPEAKS AND CREATES OUT OF NOTHING. DO I NEED YOUR HELP IN ANYTHING? AM I IMPRESSED WITH YOUR WORKS SO MUCH SO AS TO NEED YOU TO ASSIST ME IN SOMETHING? NO MY DARLING. I NEVER ARRIVE LATE, I NEVER NEED SOMETHING TO BEGIN WITH. AND I CERTAINLY DONT NEED YOUR HELP OR OPINION IF IT LOOKS GOOD OR NOT. YOU CAN REJOICE THAT I’VE GOT THIS. I LOVE YOU SO MUCH AND YOU MAKE ME SMILE.
Loners who care only for themselves spit on the common good. (Proverbs 18:1 MSG)
Team work is indeed dream work. I want to learn wisdom and do what is right. I want to support the cause of the team like I want to be supported when it’s my turn to be supported. I believe this is the right thing to do. So help me today, God. Help me be a wise team player. How would you take delight in me today without me stressing and losing peace while I work?
YES, YOU ARE ALWAYS TO REST IN ME AS YOU WORK. I WANT YOU TO WORK. THE IDEA IS NOT THAT YOU DON’T WORK. THE IDEA IS THAT YOU REST AND TRUST ME AS YOU WORK AND KNOW THAT I LEAD YOU TO THE SPRINGS OF WATER WHERE YOU WILL NEVER THIRST AND NEVER SUFFER NEED. DO YOU TRUST ME TO DO THIS? HOW DO DEER FIND WATER IN THE WILD? EVEN I LEAD THEM. AND THEY DO NOT DIE OF THIRST. I LEAD YOU ALSO THIS WAY SO YOU FIND YOUR NEEDS MET. BELIEVE ME THAT THIS IS HOW I WANT YOU TO REST AS YOU WORK. THEN WE CAN WORK TOGETHER IN SYNC. YOU WITH ME, I WITH YOU.
I came to Jesus to express my sadness over some things that didn’t turn out the way I wanted them to. I asked Him if maybe I was just being impatient. I really thought maybe that was my problem. Instead He showed me the true issue…
“THERE IS NO FEAR IN LOVE. YOU HAVE TO TRUST ME TO KNOW THAT I WILL NOT LEAD YOU TO FALL INTO A HOLE. YOU CAN TRUST ME IN YOUR STEPS. COMMIT YOUR WAYS TO ME. I CAN TAKE CARE OF THIS. I CAN TAKE CARE OF WHAT YOU FEAR. YOU FEAR PEOPLE WRONGING YOU. YOU FEAR LOSING MONEY AT THE HAND OF COLD UNCARING PEOPLE WHO ARE READY TO TAKE ADVANTAGE OF YOU. CAN YOU AND ARE YOU WILLING TO GIVE ME THAT FEAR? FEAR IS GRIPPING YOU AND YOU HAVE NO FREEDOM TO LOVE. YOU ARE NOT FREE TO LOVE PEOPLE OR WHAT YOU DO BECAUSE YOU HAVE SO MUCH FEAR ATTACHED TO IT. LET ME KNOW IF YOU ARE WILLING TO LET GO OF THIS FEAR BASED ON PAST EXPERIENCES. YES, THOSE EXPERIENCES IN THE PAST WERE UGLY BUT I WAS THERE WITH YOU. EVEN NOW I AM WITH YOU AND READY TO HEAL YOU. IF YOU ONLY LET ME. DO YOU TRUST ME THAT I AM NOT HERE TO ABUSE YOU? DO YOU TRUST ME THAT I CAN PROTECT YOU FROM ABUSERS? IF YOU CONTINUE TO LIVE IN FEAR, YOU WILL MISS OUT ON MY BLESSINGS. I WISH NOT FOR YOU TO KEEP REAPING THE FRUIT OF LIVING IN FEAR. I WANT YOU TO BE FREE. IF I SAY JUMP, WOULD YOU? WOULD YOU? BLINDLY? THIS IS ULTIMATE TRUST. CAN YOU TRUST ME LIKE THAT? ‘CAUSE RIGHT NOW YOU ARE HOLDING BACK. HOW WOULD YOU LIKE TO PROCEED? “
I would like to forgive, Jesus. People who took advantage of me in the past and wronged me. Help me to trust you and love people. I am willing. I can in Your Name.
MY DARLING, I SEE YOUR SORROW. IT IS GOOD FOR YOU TO EXPERIENCE SORROW, EVEN FOR A MOMENT, FOR CHANGE OF HEART TO HAPPEN. BECAUSE I LOVE YOU, I CAN NOT LEAVE YOU IN YOUR OLD WAYS. I WANT TO CHANGE YOUR HEART AND I CAN PERFORM THIS TYPE OF SURGERY. I AM GOOD AT IT. YOU WILL NOT NEED ANESTHESIA BECAUSE IT WILL NOT HURT. YOU ARE FEELING SORROW BUT THIS IS NOT THE KIND OF PAIN THAT FOOLS WILL EXPERIENCE. IT HURTS FAR MORE TO CONTINUE LIVING AS A FOOL. I AM GOOD AT WHAT I DO. YOU CAN TRUST ME TO GUIDE YOUR REPENTANT HEART. I AM NOT LATE, NO. TRUST ME THAT I AM NOT LATE. THIS IS THE RIGHT TIMING. THIS WAS THE PROPER TRAINING. YOU ARE NOW WISER BECAUSE OF THIS ROUTE. ANOTHER ROUTE WOULD HAVE NOT DONE THE JOB. TRUST ME. REMEMBER I SAID I AM NOT IN A HURRY. YOU GO BY YEARS THIS PROCESS IS TAKING BECAUSE YOU GO BY HUMAN CLOCK. I DON’T GO BY HUMAN CLOCK. I WORK IN HEARTS, HOWEVER LONG IT TAKES ON YOUR CLOCK BUT I DO A PERFECT JOB. I DO NOT CUT CORNERS TO MAKE PROCESSES FASTER. THIS IS MY TIMING AND THE OUTCOME WILL BE PERFECT. YOU CAN TRUST ME IN THIS. EVERYONE WILL EXPERIENCE THEIR OWN PROCESS AND THEY ALSO WILL LEARN FROM IT. YOUR PROCESS IS UNIQUE AND THIS IS HOW I CHOOSE TO USE YOU TO BLESS OTHER LIVES. I LOVE YOUR REPENTANCE AND IT FEELS GOOD INSIDE. WHAT A FREEDOM. IT IS FOR THIS FREEDOM THAT I HAVE SET YOU FREE. DO NOT SUBMIT AGAIN TO THE YOKE OF SLAVERY, WALKING IN YOUR OWN WAYS. YOU ALONE WOULD CONTINUE TO SUFFER THE CONSEQUENCES. I LOVE YOU SO MUCH AND AM VERY PROUD OF YOU. TO ME YOU SHINE LIKE A STAR.
“yet now I am happy, not because you were made sorry, but because your sorrow led you to repentance. For you became sorrowful as God intended and so were not harmed in any way by us. Godly sorrow brings repentance that leads to salvation and leaves no regret, but worldly sorrow brings death. See what this godly sorrow has produced in you: what earnestness, what eagerness to clear yourselves, what indignation, what alarm, what longing, what concern, …..” (2 Corinthians 7:9-11 NIV)
I am in another qualification period in my work and I am feeling pressure from outside to be a bit more urgent about things and be more rushed. But I am internally way too relaxed I think compared to others. I wanted to ask Jesus if it could be that I am not taking this too serious or if I am not engaging as I should. But then He asked…
“HAVE YOU ASKED ME HOW I FEEL ABOUT THIS AND WHERE I AM AT WITH MY SENSE OF URGENCY?”
Ok, no I haven’t. So, Jesus… where are you at with your sense of urgency in this qualification period thing I am in?
“THAT’S RIGHT… IT’S A THING. IT’S JUST A THING. IT HASN’T SHAKEN ME OR SURPRISED ME OR MAKE ME GET IN A RUSH MODE. I AM NOT IN A RUSH MODE, EVER. EVER. EVER. I HAVE NO SENSE OF URGENCY EVER. I AM NEVER LATE OR NEVER EARLY. YES, YOU HAVE DEADLINES AS YOU ARE DEALING WITH HUMAN TIME AND STIPULATIONS. I DON’T GO BY THOSE ON MY WATCH. KNOWING THIS CAN HELP YOU RELAX. ALL SEASONS ARE IN MY HAND AND YOU ARE SUBMITTED TO MY TIMES BECAUSE YOU ARE WILLING. THIS IS WHAT YOU WANT. MY TIMING. I KNOW YOU DO. I WANT YOU TO RELAX AND REST IN ME. I DON’T GET TIRED OF SAYING IT AND I HAVE NO NEED TO EXPLAIN WHY. IT IS ENOUGH FOR YOU TO BELIEVE ME AND TO TRUST ME. NO EXPLANATION IS NEEDED. BECAUSE IN THIS RELATIONSHIP YOU ARE SUBMITTED TO MY WORD. AND MY WILL. THERE IS NO QUESTIONING ME. IT IS SO AND IT IS A DONE DEAL. THIS IS WHERE WE STAND IN OUR RELATIONSHIP. I AM NOT DRIVEN BY DEADLINES. I TRULY AM NOT”.
DRINK IN ME MY LOVE. TRULY DRINK IN ME. ITS MY PRESENCE THAT GROWS YOU. ULTIMATELY ITS MY PRESENCE THAT GROWS YOU. LIKE ITS A MOTHERS MILK THAT GROWS A BABY IN SIZE AND IN HEALTH AND IN NOURISHMENT. YOU CAN’T GROW YOURSELF IN THESE AREAS. YOU CAN LEARN A LOT FROM OTHERS AND APPLY. BUT I GROW YOU WITH MY PRESENCE. THAT’S WHY MY WORD SAYS THAT HE WHO LACKS WISDOM, LET HIM ASK OF GOD. YOU DON’T LEARN WISDOM FROM READING. YOU BECOME SMART BY READING AND GROW IN KNOWLEDGE. BUT YOU LEARN WISDOM WITH ME. LIVING WITH ME. LIVING WITH MY SPIRIT. DWELLING WITH MY SPIRIT. LET MY LOVE GROW YOU LIKE THE SUN AND WATER GROW TOMATOES. JUST REST IN ME AND GROW. JUST REST IN ME AND GROW. THIS IS THE BEST WAY FOR ME TO EXPLAIN IN HUMAN LANGUAGE FOR YOU TO UNDERSTAND. I AM PLAIN. I AM DOWN TO EARTH. TOMATOES TAKE UP WATER AND DRINK IN THE SUN. AND THEY GROW. THEY JUST DO. AND THEY TURN RIPE IN DUE SEASON. THEIR COLOR CHANGE. THEIR SIZE GROWS. NOT BECAUSE THEY WERE STRIVING TO DO SO. THEY JUST TAKE UP WATER AND DRINK IN THE SUN. AND THEY GROW. WHY DON’T YOU DO THE SAME. JUST STAY ON THE VINE AND GROW. DRINK UP IN ME, THE SON, AND GROW.
After I was done journaling that section, I thought I’d go read Scripture and guess what passage I find in front of me! So I used all the things He just told me and replaced the original words just for my own sake. And it was like “wooooow”!!! He is so down to earth in explaining so we understand Him……
“For this reason I say to you, do not be worried about your life, as to WHEN WILL YOU FINALLY REACH YOUR GOAL, WHEN WILL YOU FINALLY BECOME THE PERSON YOU ASPIRE TO BE. Is not life more than THESE GOALS? Look at the BABIES IN THEIR MOTHERS ARMS, that they do not sow, nor reap nor gather into barns, and yet your heavenly Father feeds them AT THEIR MOTHER’S BREASTS. Are you not worth AS MUCH AS they? And who of you by being worried can add a single hour to his life OR MORE WISDOM? And why are you worried about YOUR GROWTH? Observe how the TOMATOES IN A GARDEN grow; they do not toil nor do they spin, yet I say to you that not even Solomon in all his glory clothed himself like one of these. But if God so GROWS TOMATOES WHICH ARE ON A VINE today and tomorrow ARE FLUSHED DOWN THE TOILET, will He not much more GROW you? You of little faith! Do not worry then, saying, WHEN WILL I REACH MY DESTINY? For the Gentiles eagerly seek all these things; for your heavenly Father knows that you DESIRE all these things. But DRINK IN MY LOVE AND ACCEPTANCE DAILY, and all these things will be added to you. “So do not worry about tomorrow; for tomorrow will care for itself. Each day has enough trouble of its own. ( ADAPTED FROM Matthew 6:25-34 NASB)
“God gave me so many promises” – So what?
“It’s been more then 7 years since He told me these things” – So what?
“I am tired of waiting on God” – So what?
“Why aren’t these things being fulfilled yet?” – So what?
“I look foolish after I shared these things by faith with others” – So what?
“Not sure I have strength to believe I hear correctly anymore” – So what?
“What if I’ve been wrong all along?” – So what?
“It hurts to pray about this any longer” – So what?
“Maybe I am going crazy” – So what?
So what? God is not in a hurry nor obligated to prove or explain Himself. God is secure and confident in His own Word and in the works of His hands. I am encouraged to hear of others who have waited for God’s Words to be fulfilled for decades. And He always comes through. God cannot lie. Nothing is impossible for God, except lying. It is impossible for God to lie. So what if time is going by? So what if there is no manifestation yet? So what? He is not shaken at all by my lack of patience. He sustains His own Word and will bring it to pass. And He sustains the universe and ME.
Pondering about things encountered on my journey and praying about them, sensed the Lord say…
“I LOVE YOU AND ENJOY YOU. JUST ENJOY THE BLUE SKIES. THAT IS ALL I SAY YOU NEED TO DO. JUST LOOK AT THE BLUE SKIES AND ENJOY THEM. YOU CAN’T CONTROL THE SUNSHINE NOR THE RAIN. ENJOY THE BLUE SKIES. THERE ARE GREY SKIES SOMETIMES. YOU CAN’T CONTROL THOSE EITHER. SO ENJOY THE BLUE SKIES TODAY. IS THAT OK? JUST ENJOY THEM”.
