Exodus 20:3 “You must not have any other god but me.” (NLT)

Child – You asked if service can be an idol. It all depends upon the reason for the service. Is it directed by Me and does it bring Me glory? Or does it just give you a sense of importance or a belief that you are filling a need you saw but didn’t discuss with Me first? So many reasons for “service” to others are the result of self. 

All is to be done with My guidance and strength. Otherwise it is an ego thing for you and you don’t have the wisdom or power to take care of anything without Me. I want you to come joyfully to Me in the morning so I can fill you with Myself. When you seek Me first, you will be refreshed and given all you need to be a blessing to those in your path today.

Don’t focus only on the needs around you as they will overwhelm you without My direction. Seek Me first each day. By spending time with Me you will develop inner strength. Rivers of living water can flow from you only when you seek and receive them from Me, your Source.

Service done without My leading may cause disappointment and discouragement as it can overwhelm you. Service in and through Me will bring peace, joy and rest not frustration. Remember you are not My only servant and you are not expected to meet every need you see. Even Jesus did only what I told Him to do.

Focus on Me. I am leading. Are you following?

Love you,  Abba

It’s Personal

Jeremiah 1:5 “I chose you before I formed you in the womb; I set you apart before you were born.” I call you by name and lead you. John 10:3 (HCSB)

Child – These words are for you, too. I am your personal God. You are My creation formed by Me for Myself. I molded you just the way I wanted you “warts” and all. You are called to be My intimate companion living each day in My presence, led by Me into the day’s adventure.

All of life is an adventure with Me. So much to see and do. You were created to not only give Me pleasure by your awareness of My life within you but to be a blessing to others along your way.

Open your eyes and ears, child. There is a hurting world around you that needs Me. You are sent as My ambassador, appealing to them to listen and see Me despite their circumstances. I am empowering you to do that. Walk with Me today. We go blessing.

Love you,  Abba

Never Useless

1 Corinthians 15:58 “So then my dear brothers and sisters, be strong and immoveable. Always work enthusiastically for the Lord, for you know that nothing you do for the Lord is ever useless.” (NLT)

Child – I’m not finished with you yet. You are allowing your thoughts to slip from our work to “your” work and it is depressing you. Instead of enthusiasm for each day of blessing (and they all are blessed), you are allowing discontent and malaise to rob you of your joy in the moment.

Everything done with Me and for Me brings My will into this earth. You are not alone but you have lost your focus. Then Satan fools you into dwelling on feelings and looking for what you consider to be “success.” All encounters are seed planting endeavors and My Word never returns void whether or not you see any significant results!

Rededicate yourself to Me this morning. Put on your armor and walk close to Me. My shadow is your shield. The fighting intensifies here but an eternity of blessings awaits you. I AM with you.

The battle is Mine and I am always victorious! Keep that in mind as you rest in My strength and take your stand for Me. Praise and thank Me for the outcome even though your vision is temporarily clouded. You will soon see clearly.

You are loved with My everlasting love. Dwell on that reality no matter what the circumstances. We go out together and we win!

Love you bunches,  Abba
