My children, listen to Me and I will tell you what you need to know. Seek Me and know Me, for I am your true wealth. In Me all things live and move and have their being. Without Me nothing is possible and there is no life.
I want you to always keep foremost in your mind and written on your heart how much I love you. My love is infinite and you will never grasp it completely. However, do not let this stop you from seeking Me. Call to Me and I will answer you and teach you the hidden things which you would otherwise never know. I am your inexhaustible treasure and how I long to share all that I am with you!
I have so much I want to share with you and the sharing will take more than a day (in fact, it will take a lifetime). But if you will seek Me, each new day I will share a little bit more, filling you up with greater understanding of My goodness, greatness and plan, so that over time you become filled with joy (My joy) to overflowing. And with each new taste of My wisdom which I pour into you, you will come to know and embrace my heart better. Delight yourself in this and keep on seeking for I am waiting to give you My infinite heart in exchange for your own.
Today I want to remind you that I am in everything and cause everything. I AM the Provider. Without My power and approval nothing happens – NOTHING. With Me, the impossible becomes possible, the supernatural invades the natural and nothing is beyond my ability to touch and transform it for eternal good.
I prepare the Way. You have merely to listen and walk it out. I open the doors. I shut the doors. I enable and prevent, and it is all good.
You are not your own. You were never your own. You were bought at a price. The blood of I AM made flesh was poured out for you! Death was suffered for you.
Freedom from eternal death and ultimate purposelessness is not a license to do what you want. There was no freedom in it before you decided you wanted Me as Savior and there is no freedom in it now. True freedom is in trusting Me – in letting Me carry life’s burdens like a good parent and in you becoming as a child regardless of your physical age (you are always a child to Me.)
I AM Lord. I AM the Way. I AM the Truth. I AM the Life. I AM the Light. I AM the Shepherd… You are the sheep. My sheep hear My voice because they listen for it. They know without My plan and My direction there is no peace, no hope, no joy, only a steady purposelessness and questioning regarding life’s value and meaning as you drift through days which were meant to be filled with My glory. My glory is the praise I am due, My glory is My manifest presence with all My most holy perfect attributes; My glory is all that I am made visible through the lives of those who love Me, so that others may see and get to know Me as Savior and Lord though I AM an invisible God.
But My heart is sad. There are so many of you who do not desire Me as Lord, only Savior. You do not want to be as a child subject to the guidance of a parent (Me). Clearly you do not understand (nor seek to understand). You have not yet come to the end of yourselves where you will realize you cannot cause anything to happen and life without Me is simultaneously too much for you and no life at all. Until you know Me and acknowledge Me as Lord, you are like willful teenagers, who think you know it all. Yet in reality when compared to me, you are but babes, still feeding on spiritual milk unable to even chew or digest My real food.
I AM God. There is no other. You are either with Me or against Me. I either lead, or you stumble. There is not another way for I am God and I am the Way!
Many of you have become distracted from Me and been chasing emptiness – so focused on making sure you have “enough” when I AM. I AM! I will provide enough for My people. It is My promise. I will provide enough for you. Let me be Your God – Your Savior and Your Lord. I alone know the way I want you to go because I alone know what I desire to do with your life.
When you came to me and bowed because you knew you needed a Savior, did you forget you proclaimed Me as Lord, too? Why don’t you want Me? You only want what you think you want and desire Me to give it to you. Why are you so easily satisfied, chasing after that which doesn’t last?
I made you to dwell with me forever! Is this nothing? I made you to be My adopted, beloved sons and daughters , to whom I am giving My kingdom. You are princes, princesses, priests and prophets. You are privileged through the blood of Christ to have gained entry into the heavenly throne room and access to me now and forever.
But so often you act as if you do not want it – as if you do not want I AM.
What is it about the world which makes you want what it offers more than you want Me and My Way? Have you looked at that which you chase after? It is nothing but a chasing after the wind. You focus on life here and now, putting all emphasis on numbering your days from here to what will be the date of your physical death. But when I am Your Lord (by the blood of the Lamb and Your acknowledgement and faith and trust in Me,) then leaving of your physical life behind is the beginning, not the end.
You wander around not knowing what to do to find fulfillment, when it is staring you in the face. If you would but seek Me, investing your time and energy in learning more about Me and My Way as expressed in My Word and confirmed in your heart, then you would know that you are My ambassadors here. Yet, you will not have to serve in this foreign land forever. I know this place where you are now called to dwell can be dry, forbidding and harsh. My beloved children, I love you too much to leave you here forever. The day will come when I call you home to be with Me! Because the spirit is invisible, when I draw you to Myself, the journey will be invisible to those left on earth and the physical body left lifeless behind (its mission accomplished). But the focus should not be the dead empty shell, but the new life eternal into which you will have entered! I rejoice in the day I bring you home! And simultaneously I grieve alongside those who loved you and how much they will miss you until it is their turn. But for now – until that day in each of your lives – I have good work for you!
You do not decide the work you will do for Me. I am the Potter and you are clay in My loving hands. I know. Only I have the overview. Only I know how I have made you and to what purpose. What I will do, I will do! If you disagree, then pray to Me and I will consider your request. I heard Abraham; I heard Moses; certainly I will hear You. But know I am LORD and I love you. I will never leave you or forsake you and though the days here on earth may be hard and you may not always understand, I desire to use you for good, eternal purpose every day of your earthly life – no matter what your circumstances! And when the day comes that I lead you home, then you will see and know and understand.
Make your decision. Am I God? Then I am Savior AND Lord. Press in to hear My voice and I will lead you in the way you are to go. Rest in Me; trust Me. Do not be double-minded. Be My child. Call to Me with all your heart and I will answer and tell you deep and unsearchable things you do not know.
Rejoice and be glad. For I AM the Lord; I AM God and I love you.

VERSE for the day
ROM 12:1-2 (Amplified)
1 I appeal to you therefore, brethren, and beg of you in view of [all] the mercies of God, to make a decisive dedication of your bodies [presenting all your members and faculties] as a living sacrifice, holy (devoted, consecrated) and well pleasing to God, which is your reasonable (rational, intelligent) service and spiritual worship.
2 Do not be conformed to this world (this age), [fashioned after and adapted to its external, superficial customs], but be transformed (changed) by the [entire] renewal of your mind [by its new ideals and its new attitude], so that you may prove [for yourselves] what is the good and acceptable and perfect will of God, even the thing which is good and acceptable and perfect [in His sight for you].
