24/7 Guidance

The delight is in the Lord, who is a ’24-hour a day Lord’.

Meditation Thought: “Delight yourself in the Lord, and he will give you the desires of your heart.” ( Psalm 37:4)

“Delight yourself in the Lord” – the delight is here, whether the desires of the heart are here or in the future. This is the key to the Kingdom: delight available 24 hours a day, for the delight is in the Lord, who is a ’24-hour a day Lord’, always available, always willing, always eager to guide, to bless, to work good. Choose the delight in the Lord in your life. The desires of your heart are a result of the delight – not the delight a result of fulfilled desires. Just as a stone may be enhanced by its setting, so your delight may be enhanced by fulfilled desires, but keep each in perspective and do not confuse them.

‘Delightful attitude’ will win over the factors needed to produce the desires of your heart. Not everyone has the temperament to do this humorously – but everyone has the power of being able to do it in the Spirit. Get enthused about the Lord, and doing His works, and your enthusiasm will be so contagious that all will be eager to give you the desires of your heart – because those desires are the desires of the Father whose will is to be done on earth as it is in heaven.

The Character of Life

The life found by ‘self’ is a lost cause, but…

Meditation Thought: “Whoever finds his life will lose it, and whoever loses his life for my sake will find it.” (Matthew 10:39)

“He who finds his life: the life found by ‘self’ is a lost cause – the life found by self is ultimately unrewarding; it turns sour and displeasing. But to lose your ‘self’ life by yielding it up to Me is to change the character of your life into a fruitful, sweet maturity, through My provisions for it on the cross.

If you cling to self, which avoids the cross – both My cross and your cross of total yielding to the demands of the Kingdom – you avoid also the full, good, satisfying life which the Father intended for you.

But to embrace My cross, and your own cross, you provide the energy to melt and change those crosses into shining jewels to beautify yourself as you offer them at the same time as symbols to our Father, to Me, and to the Spirit of your total commitment of your spirit to our fellowship.”

Kingdom Language

You speak the language of the Kingdom as you utter sounds of praise, of comfort, of love, of peace.

Meditation Thought: ““Blessed are you when others revile you and persecute you and utter all kinds of evil against you falsely on my account. Rejoice and be glad, for your reward is great in heaven, for so they persecuted the prophets who were before you.” (Matthew 5:11-12)

“Babel, babel, babel – that is all that the words mean which are used against you because you speak My wisdom. The meaningless babel of babes, who do not understand the meaning of the words they utter, nor the meaning of the words they hear. Hearing a noise and producing a sound is not understanding or speaking a language.

You learn the meaning of the language of the Kingdom as you tune your ear to hear it as having particular meaning which is to be manifested in your life. You speak the language of the Kingdom as you utter sounds of praise, of comfort, of love, of peace.”

Superior Citizenship

Live each moment aware that later it will bring either peace or regret and there will be no changing of the consequences.

Meditation Thought: “Blessed are those who are persecuted because of righteousness, for theirs is the kingdom of heaven.” (Matthew 5:10)

“Cling to righteousness. No matter who or what tries to pry you away from righteousness, no matter what the consequences of your ‘stubbornness’ in hanging on – persist. For your reward will be great: so great you cannot now fathom it. Those who are persecuted for righteousness’ sake are those who insist upon retaining citizenship in the Kingdom when others are insisting upon them changing their allegiance to the world. But they do not know the joys of the Kingdom, the power of citizenship in the Kingdom. Only by holding your citizenship through ‘thick and thin’ can you demonstrate the value of it, and thus prove both to yourself and to others that this citizenship is superior in every way to citizenship in the world.

Listen to the language of the Kingdom as it is spoken to you through My Spirit; heed the advice, acting in faith and joyful confidence that the advice is for your benefit and for the benefit of the Kingdom. One day all will know the whole truth – but it is too late then to make choices. You must choose on the basis of information available to you – only hints of the whole – in order to allow you freedom to choose. No choice is involved if the total picture is laid out and there is no struggle to find the pieces of it.

Live each moment aware that later it will bring either peace or regret and there will be no changing of the consequences. Concentrate, think, be aware of your momentary action, for it could, though you recognize it not, change the course of your life as well as many other lives.

Start this moment an intense training program of using your abilities, talents, faith, words, actions and desires to develop every facet of yourself into an exemplary citizen of the Kingdom. If you are persecuted for your loyalty to righteousness, so shall you be rewarded for your status as an exemplary citizen of the Kingdom, loyal to all of its statutes.”

Fortify the Breached Wall

Seek and proclaim in love, in humble service, in empathetic understanding, with a discerning ear.

Meditation Thought: “And I sought for a man among them who should build up the wall and stand in the breach before me for the land, that I should not destroy it, but I found none.” (Ezekiel 22:30)

“I desire my people to turn to my face, listen to Me speak, and to heed My words. They cannot hear Me when they are tuned to their own interests. I seek their attention: I do not move unannounced. Time and time again I seek My own – century after century will some rebel, and some will heed. Seek to reconcile My people to Me: You know of My love. You know of My power; you experience My grace. Stand strong and firm in the strength of My might – fill the breach, and fill the place where My wrath would destroy, for I am righteous, and cannot allow sin to come to Me through the breach in the wall which divides sin and righteousness.

If I am to move among My people, I must have righteousness: Seek righteousness, proclaim righteousness – but seek and proclaim in love, in humble service, in empathetic understanding, with a discerning ear to both Me and Mine, with your tongue bound in the grace of My Spirit, and moved by loving concern. Let your mind be suffused with My Word (My promises and My plans) and your arms and hands open to receive all who seek shelter there.

Prepare your spirit, your mind, your emotions, your body, to be whoever or whatever I need of you at any given time. Walk in My Spirit, and you walk with Me. Walk with Me, and you walk in the joys and the glories of My Kingdom, superimposed over the physical realm. Be not afraid of the condition where you walk, as long as you walk in My Spirit, for then My protection, and My love, My grace, and My works are all released: changing ugly to lovely, sin to righteousness, shame to forgiven, hate to love.

Mountains Really Can Be Moved

You believe. You do the works to the best of your human ability, and when your little efforts start a little dirt to move, then I will start an earthquake to help you move that mountain.

Meditation Thought: “Truly, I say to you, if you have faith and never doubt, you will not only do what has been done to the fig tree, but even if you say to this mountain, ‘Be taken up and thrown into the sea,’ it will be done. And whatever you ask in prayer, you will receive, if you have faith.” (Matthew 21:21-22)

“‘If you have faith and never doubt:’ how do you have that much faith, that much confidence in what you ask? You have that much faith and confidence when you know your request is within My will.

The first step is to determine My will: pray, think, seek inner guidance – be alert in your spirit, your mind, your emotions, your physical condition, to circumstances: observe, inside and outside of yourself.

Study the life of Jesus. Whatever He said and whatever He did became a witness to Me in some way. The fig tree incident was proof of our relationship: of the power which I released through Him to make decisions and then to have circumstances confirm the decisions as wise, as helpful, as a means of teaching further revelation of truth.

This is the pattern I desire for all of My children: to seek to know Me so intimately that you can know My way of thinking and acting and can learn to think and to act in similar manner.

Many more incidents involving spoken desires would result in confirming action if My children would first seek to know me intimately and then think and act.

I give you great leeway in the way you live your life: I desire you to express yourself uniquely, according to your talents – and according to your tastes. Your desire to be surrounded by beauty is not evil: it is consistent with your Father’s taste also. The crux of the matter is to put it in perspective. The fig tree incident was a minor ‘miracle’ in the life of Jesus – a passing ‘flash in the pan’ show of power compared to His miracles which totally changed men’s hearts and brought them to know Me and seek My will. Nevertheless it was a witness to My power and to the love I have for My own – for I care about you enough to allow you to seek to express our relationship in manners of your own choosing.

Nothing is too small to be a witness to My power, My love and My attempts at bringing My beloved family into intimacy with me and with one another.

Have confidence in your own intelligence to make choices. Have confidence in our relationship that these choices will be life-enhancing and therefore I seek to demonstrate My power through them, that you and others may be moved from your lethargy and seek new life in Christ with an enthusiasm that will make His life what it was intended to be: the releasing of My expression into the world in an explosion of love and truth that shatters the complacency and ignorance and selfishness which had taken a hold of My beloved, and to build instead a mantle of praise, a contrite heart -and an abiding and enduring faith in Me such as Jesus had demonstrated while He was in the flesh.

Do not fear; I am love. I made you to love, and I desire you to express your love for Me. What better way can you do this then to rejoice in My care, trust My tolerance of your imperfections and misconceptions, and to do creative thinking and creative acting?

Stop fretting. Stop doubting. MOVE MOUNTAINS:

Not just because you can – but because I need the moved in order to reconcile the world to Me and convert it into the kingdom.

Do not be concerned that you may err – I can guide you into corrections that will produce better results than if the errors did not occur.

You believe. You do the works to the best of your human ability, and when your little efforts start a little dirt to move, then I will start an earthquake to help you move that mountain.”

Contrasts in Chemistry

Thoughts and actions harmonized with the Father’s will are the transforming miracles of life…

Meditation Thought: “And blessed is he who takes no offense at me.” (Luke 7:23)

“Blessed is he who sees Me with an open mind and open emotions! For I will flow into his mind and his emotions, releasing the chemistry of the living water of the Holy Spirit to re-arrange the thoughts and the actions to harmonize with the Father’s will. Thoughts and actions harmonized with the Father’s will are the transforming miracles of life defeating death, health defeating disease, joy replacing pain, peace soothing over distress, despair turned to hope, and the world displaced by the Kingdom.

When I am accepted, and not rejected, there is the Father accepted: there is His purpose fulfilled and the Word is confirmed in the deed. Know the Word and you shall have the wisdom to move in the flow of the Spirit, rather than being stopped abruptly in your tracks that you will be forced to turn in a new direction.

Let Me support you in My loving arms as we go together doing good. Our love shall be all the more precious as it is shared with all whom we meet. The glow of our love for each other will bring the desire to others to share in our love. This is the Good News proclaimed, and the Father glorified as the glow of love spreads throughout the land.”

Eternal Love

Expand your concept as love working in you, love turning everything touched by you into a more accurate image of God and His Kingdom.

Meditation Thought: “for it is God who works in you, both to will and to work for his good pleasure.” Philippians 2:13

Love is at work in you, both to will and to work for the pleasure of all of creation; which is the pleasure of the Creator: For the created is the image of the Creator when the will of the Creator is followed.

Expand your concept as love working in you, love turning everything touched by you into a more accurate image of God and His Kingdom.

You see, you feel, you touch.
But what lies beneath,
Hidden – and yet revealed by all that is seen?
Is there love, light, delight?
Is there good, purity, truth?
Is there joy and hope and purpose too?
Then Eternal Love lies hidden within your spirit, mind and soul.
This power, not seen, not felt, not touched,
Transforms the world – for all to see, to feel, to touch,
With awakened sense of Right and Good and Peace forevermore.
