For those whom He foreknew, He also preordained to become conformed to the image of His Son, so that He would be the firstborn among many brethren. Romans 8:29.
Today your LORD (יהוה) God says:
Love your body into shape. Love your life into shape. Love people into shape. Love never fails. Anything done without love fails. I so loved the world . . . I loved you into shape, conformed you to the image of My Son. Romans 8:29; Philippians 3:21.
I am love and I think, act, walk and talk only in love for I cannot be outside who I am. Everything else is foreign to Me and cannot enter My realm. And the way I rule is by love. Love is the strongest force there is, there is none higher. Faith, hope and love alone remain, but the greatest of these is love. Everything responds to and works by love.
If you love people, if you love your life, if you love Me, you will begin to prosper and be in good health. And the people around you will begin to do so as well. If you love because I first loved you and gave My Son for you as propitiation you will be strong in knowing love. Love shapes things that are misshapen into perfect shape.
Do not hate things. It destroys you. Do not speak in a derogatory way about and despise your body. That will cause you to go into corruption and age prematurely. Your body, and everything else about you responds to love. Pure love. You were made in My image and I am love, so you are formed from love. You came out of love and that is the medium in which you will thrive. A fish was brought forth from the waters and that is where the fish must live and move and have its being.
You are still in the world and the curse is still in the earth, but I have given you My power and authority, but you have to execute it. You don’t earn salvation and grace, but once you have received salvation and grace, once you have received the abundance of grace and the gift of righteousness, it is up to you to use it. Paul said he did not receive My gift of grace in vain, but did more than others in releasing the Kingdom on earth. It is up to you to enforce it. It is up to you to resist the devil, to speak to the mountain, and to rebuke the storms and sickness that are trying to make inroads in your life. But most of you are not using the tremendous gift I have given you. Most of you are unaware of the tremendous treasure that lies within your earthen vessel and are functioning at a very low level of where you could be. How can I show you more so that you are willing to be the person I made you to be?
Love who I have made you to be. Love that I have poured My Holy Spirit into your heart and filled you with My power and My divine life. Love that wherever you walk you change the atmosphere from oppression to freedom, from depression to joy, from fear to faith, from darkness to light. Love that I have made you to be BLESSED and to be a BLESSING. Love and guard the precious treasure I have given you that is YOU. Each of you is a beautiful gift to the world, a gift to yourself, and a gift to Me. And love the gift of your neighbor as you love yourself. Every good thing and perfect gift comes down out of Me, who is love, and is gift of love.
Love is a consuming fire. It will consume away all that is not love. Love will conquer all evil, all darkness, and all fear by simply consuming it. Love you make you new. Perfect love casts out fear. Fear cannot enter one who is in perfect love because they are surrounded by love as a garrison. When you know you are loved and cared for by the One who is the Almighty and the Most High, there is nothing to sculpt away your treasure.
Love is bold. Love is confident. When you know you are loved and cherished you have confidence to approach the one who loves you with the knowledge that you will never be turned away.
I love you with an everlasting love. I love you into shape—a new creation in Christ. Old things have passed away and all things are new. Love yourself into shape.
