If You DO These Things…

Over time, as you have absorbed and learned many things from the Lord that have been spirit and life to YOU, have you longed to reach inside yourself and take of what He as placed there and then re-plant it in another?

Have you wanted them to know the things YOU know?

Have you labored long and hard with some one or more individuals God has led into your lives for you to share those very things….yet the fruit seemed not to come; and they even resisted, at times, the very “good things” from God you desire to share with them?

Have you known the frustration and disappointment of such a situation?

I know that I have; and many times I have gone to the Lord…cried out to Him about it and asking for His supernatural help. I want to share with you some things the Lord spoke to me about this.
__________________________________

You cannot transfer who YOU are or all YOU know to another, nor can any other to you. That was never the design nor the projected plan. You are each individuals. I created EACH of you in that way. My design for My people is that each and all press toward the mark for the prize of the” high calling” that is found only in ONE PLACE….in Christ Jesus! They are to be conformed into HIS IMAGE…not into yours, nor to your representation of it, nor to your good works.

The design and plan for all is that EACH be found IN HIM and conformed to HIM. In that you are all alike; but in development, in timing, in situation and circumstance of how that unfolds day by day, it is unique and very different for EACH one of you. Do not fret over people or their development in me. As I have repeatedly taught you, only TWO THINGS can you do as regards others:

1. Teach others by planting “seed thoughts” of TRUTH from My Word in others at every opportunity, and….

2. Surround all with the atmosphere of the LOVE and LIFE of Jesus Christ….and PRAY!

But for any more than that…STEP BACK and GET OUT OF THE WAY! Leave the rest to Me and to them. Allow us to “connect”, and allow Me to undertake with them by My Spirit…as they are willing. For ultimately, the decision, the choices, are left up to the INDIVIDUAL – even the timing; for I visit many, but many “know not” the time of My visitation. They do not recognize it nor respond as they are given opportunity. And that, too, is THEIR choice, a part of THEIR story, whether or not they yield to My design and My timing. For none shall be forced nor controlled, nor compelled against their will. It must be from a WILLING surrendered heart that they turn to Me – to WISDOM, to UNDERSTANDING, and to LOVE.

Have I not said that “apart from Me, you can do nothing”? Yes, and that which follows each life is the evidence of what EACH has, IN TRUTH, chosen. There is no mistake about it. Their life does not lie. So fret not yourself. The Truth is the Truth is the Truth. It will always be the Truth.

My Grace is present – now – to allow each of you to yield to and submit to My Truth…the CHOICE, however…is YOURS. I have provided all that is necessary for you each to choose in line with My design, My plan; but the choice belongs to EACH of you…day by day. I exhort still…CHOOSE LIFE…that YOU and your seed my live!!!

The ONLY thing, ultimately that is going to remain….is the character and nature of the fruit of My Spirit. Power…position…ministry…good works…ALL…unless they are done in MY character and nature, are going to burn up and be blown away. All the glitz, the glamour, the showy displays will burn in the Refiner’s fire. And only that which is REAL and PURE – the deep things of My nature will remain under such heat!

So lay up for yourselves treasures in Heaven where character and integrity and fruit such as the “nine” found in Galatians 5:22-23 will remain. Where traits such as are found in 2 Peter 1:1-7 will stand. THESE THINGS DESIRE. “For if THESE THINGS are yours and abound, you will be neither barren nor unfruitful in the knowledge of our Lord Jesus Christ. For he who lacks THESE THINGS is short sighted, even to blindness, and has forgotten that he was purged from his old sins. Therefore, brethren, be even more diligent to make your calling and election SURE, for IF YOU DO THESE THINGS you will never stumble.” (verses 8-10)

Humble yourselves under the Mighty Hand of God to possess THESE THINGS. Look for My Nature. Look for My Character. For have I not said that “by their fruits (good or bad) you shall identify those whom I know, for many shall say ‘Lord, Lord, did I not do THIS? Did I not do THAT…in Your Name?'”

And I will say, “I never knew you.”

Did you bring your heart to Mine to truly KNOW ME? To know My PERSON? To know My FRUIT?

Or did you just desire to be aligned with me to do ‘works’ in My Name that brought you power and position and attention?

Chose THIS DAY whom you will serve.

    I love the zeal you have for the Lord. This reminds me of some of your long ago “Volunteers for Jesus ” post.
    You speak wisdom and truth!

    Love your sister in Christ,

  2. Hi Carla….It IS the same spirit. Some of the text is from my files…and some of it is current! I believe we are all a mix of where we have been…and where we are presently! I just know my heart BURNS to speak TRUTH and as I have often said: Share the “part” I have been given…with as many as I can…in the time I have left!

    Just planting “seed thoughts” of TRUTH while I can…just as you do, my friend!

    Love you,
    Sandy
