Don't take so long, love, to come and press your ear to My heart, to press in, and listen for My loving voice. Apart from Me you can do nothing. So it is imperative Your ear never leaves My heart. You must be attuned to My heart alone. My gestures of love over you, shape you and fashion you so that you can be all that I've called you to be. My voice, breaks the chains over your life, over Your mind, over your heart. So as you press in, expect to be released, into further clarity, further wisdom, and greater mind peace. I am not running to You I am running through you, like a well fed stream, a watercourse, a river, never to run dry. Your attentiveness releases the flow, as you know My heart.
Your heart posture is to be that of a handmaiden, like Mary who said ," be it to me even as you have said". She did not know that cost she was saying yes to paying. It didn't matter. She simply wanted more, in obedience, because she trusted My goodness over her. She had so much favor with Me and still does.
You see when you are in love with the bridegroom you will follow him anywhere, do anything, go anywhere, just to be with the one you love. I am like that. My heart is so delighted in you, and you know your very life-breathe is in Me. So come sweet one closer still and fellowship with My son, until the love you have would follow at any cost, and your Joy will be great.
The death ( to self) you are learning to live is imperative for the life you now live to come forth. You're life hidden in me, in My resurrection power, My fullness. Dying to others opinions, dying to your own need to be valued by others, actually is enabling you to be more valuable, or useful to Me (2 Tim 2:20-22)...... And the beauty of it is, the value others have for you, as you do so, is increasing. Because you are so powerful when you focus on My opinion alone. Insecurities are put to rest as you are able to listen to My voice. It doesn't mean You don't value others or their opinions. It simply means they don't shape you. I do. So you are becoming a vessel for honor, useful to the Me, prepared for every good work, positioned in my house for every honorable use. I am now able to express Myself through You, because you will not waiver from what I say to please the crowd. Now I am ready to pour forth my words through You.
" We are like common jars of clay that carry this glorious treasure within, so that the extraordinary overflow of power will be seen as God's not ours. Though we experience every kind of pressure we're not crushed. At times we don't know what to do, but quitting is not an option." 2 Cor. 4:7,8 TPT
