Not In Vain

1 Corinthians 15:58b Let nothing move you. Always give yourselves fully to the work of the Lord, because you know that your labor in the Lord is not in vain.“(NIV)

Child – Nothing you do for Me is in vain. Even small gestures such as gentle words and loving thoughts are powerful works. As you seek my face and heart, I empower all you do. I am your motivator and you are my obedient vessel. Leave the results to Me for I am also the finisher.

We are a team. Don’t be afraid. I am trustworthy and will provide everything required to carry out my plan. You are mine and it pleases Me greatly when you stay aware of Me in you.

You are to consciously go forward each day. Stay alert and be aware of the people you meet. Tasks are not the goal – the people are. Love them with my love. See them with my eyes. Minister to them as I give insight and ability. All is to be done to bless them and bring Me honor.

I created you for myself. Rejoice in that! We will have forever to explore all that means. In the meantime, draw close to Me each moment and listen for my voice. I am ever speaking, ever directing, ever blessing both you and those you meet.

Stop wasting time on “time fillers.” You know what those are for you. Some rest and recreation is fine. My assignment for you is to bring my life and my words to others. Listen to Me and I will show you how to use your time for my glory.

Many people are starving for my words of life. I am making a way for you to bless others with all you have been given. Your labor will not be in vain! Walk with me, child. We go blessing.

Love,  Abba

New Clothes

Romans 13:14 “…clothe yourselves with the Lord Jesus Christ, and do not think about how to gratify the desires of the flesh.” (NIV)

Child – You have been given new clothes. You are to dress yourself in the character of my Son. His Spirit lives in you and provides these clothes as you appropriate them. Always choose to go out fully dressed for the day.

Put on love, joy and peace. Allow kindness, goodness and gentleness to flow through your words and attitude. Remain faithful to your task of reflecting Me to your part of the world. You have been given the discipline to do so.

You are my chosen one and I freely give you myself and my character. We go forward into life together. Open your eyes, child. You are beautifully arrayed for the day. Also remember to put on your spiritual armor for the attacks that lie ahead.

Be of good cheer for the I, the Greater One, live in you. Together we conquer all foes. So be strong in Me for it is my mighty power that protects you. Rest in that fact!

Love you,  Abba

Heart Attitude

Deuteronomy 8:1-3 “Be careful to follow every command I am giving you today … Remember how the Lord your God led you all the way in the wilderness these forty years, to humble and test you in order to know what was in your heart … He humbled you, causing you to hunger and then feeding you with manna … to teach you that man does not live by bread alone, but on every word that comes from the mouth of the Lord.” (NIV)

ChildWhat’s your heart attitude? Are you seeking Me first, yielding to Me and listening for my still small voice? That is how you will hear all I desire to do in and through you today. I will accomplish my plans through you because you are my vessel to bless the world around you.

All good originates in Me. Through my presence and power within you, you will successfully carry out my tasks. You are not a puppet. You always have free will. However, unless you choose to follow my leading, you will fall short of all I have for you to be and do today.

Each day is a present and you are to rest in Me as I work within and through you. If you are striving, you have taken over. Follow my leading. I AM ever speaking and gently prodding. When you diligently seek my heart, my face, my lead, you will walk in complete victory.

I am the Way Maker. Yield to Me, and my peace that passes natural understanding will guard your heart and mind as you trust and obey. You are my covenant child bought by the blood of my Lamb and I desire to use you to bless others.

I AM all you need because I AM the power behind your wisdom and strength to do everything planned. You can do all things through Me, but can do nothing worthwhile in the kingdom without Me.

Stay attached to the vine. I am faithful and I love you. You are my chosen vessel and I am responsible to train you up in the way you should go. We will go out fully living and loving others in my strength.

I am leading. Follow closely and choose to walk in my shadow of protection.
