Do not seek fame. You do not need it for you are already famous to Me.
I know you and I love you with all your shortcomings and faults. You are beautiful and loved infinitely. I could not love you more. (And no one could love you more than I already do.)
The fame of this world is deceitful. You seek to be known. Yet what the world builds up it also delights to wrongly judge, rip down and destroy. There is no love in it. It is not Me. It is not My way. It does not represent My Kingdom way.
Worship God and do not seek to be worshipped. Only God is to be exalted. The Father is exalted by the Son and the Son by the Father. However, true value of the individual is in considering others better than oneself. True value is the valuing of others without the de-valuing of self. True value is to know you are of infinite value to the Lord whether you are seen by the world or not! Be in Me! Seek Me! Revel in My love. It is the only love which will not disappoint. With Me are eternally lasting good consequences. The fame of this world is of no lasting value and gone in an instant.
You have no need for this fame. There is great burden which fame (and even wealth) brings with it, for fame is not the blessing it seems. If I allow it to come to pass as part of your service to Me, then I also will provide you with the strength for it, but in order to survive its manifaceted onslaught, you must take nothing for granted. You must cling to Me daily, moment by moment and ongoing as never before.
There is great risk for now and for eternity in the fame society dangles before you like a priceless jewel. Its value is fake. It is not as it seems.
Do not look to the right or left to see who is watching or if they are watching. That is the wrong focus. I see you. Look only to Me or anything which is built will be destroyed and washed away because it was not built on Me, the Rock.
Seek only the wealth that lasts. Seek Me and My Way.
True treasure is to be in Me and for Me. I provide everything else you need and I provide it perfectly. What I provide will not always look like you think you want or how you expect because I AM and I am infinitely superior to you. My ways are not your ways. Neither are my thoughts your thoughts. As high as the heavens are above the earth, so much higher are my ways, my thoughts, my perfect plans and strategies.
I know your needs. I know your wants. Fame is not the answer. I AM. Your delight will never be full or complete, there will be no true joy or peace until you know I AM and can rest in it. Look to Me, for in Me you need to look no further. You are made complete by Me, in Me and through Me.
Success defined as you have been taught is a lie. It is no success at all. True success is to be Mine and it is to be in Me with Me in you as I am in the Father and the Father is in Me, joined together for My purposes throughout the earth.
I came on a mission of love. Money did not matter and money does not matter. It is a mere tool. It can be used for great good if you steward as I direct! (And it is MINE not yours anyway.) However, I promise to provide all that you need, therefore you do not need to seek money, you need to seek Me!
Do the work I set before you and I will enable you to have enough. Trust Me; seek Me – not wealth and fame. The joy and inner peace you seek is not in it. It is found in Me alone.
