In the same way the Spirit also helps our weakness; for we do not know how to pray as we should, but the Spirit Himself intercedes for us with groanings too deep for words; and He who searches the hearts knows what the mind of the Spirit is, because He intercedes for the saints according to the will of God. Romans 8:26-27.
But an hour is coming, and now is, when the true worshipers will worship the Father in spirit and truth; for such people the Father seeks to be His worshipers. God is spirit, and those who worship Him must worship in spirit and truth.” John 4:23-24.
For now we see in a mirror dimly, but then face to face; now I know in part, but then I will know fully just as I also have been fully known. 1 Corinthians 13:12.
Today your LORD (יהוה) God says:
There is no one who loves you like I do. There is no one that cares for you like Me. There is no one wo knows you as I do and no one else can set you free but Me. No one, nothing, but Me. Without Me you can do nothing. Without Me there would be nothing.
No one can provide for you like I do. No one else understands all your needs and can fill them. No one else knows your deepest thoughts and desires. I know them better than you do. And I know you better than you do. That is why I gave you My Spirit, to show you who you are and help you voice your desires in the spirit, so that you can know even as you are known. Romans 8:26-27; 1 Corinthians 13:12.
Do not act like someone you are not, act like who you are in spirit and truth. Be you. Be the new creation you are in Christ. In Him, you are not a sinner, you are a saint. You are not depressed; you are filled with joy unspeakable filled with glory. You are not confused; you have the mind of Christ and the wonderful counselor is in you to lead you and guide you to all truth. You are not a victim; you are more than a conqueror. You are not stressed out; you have the peace of Jesus. You are not alone; I am with you always. You are not an orphan; you are My child. You are not single; I have espoused you to Me forever. You are not lost; you have been found. You are not afraid, I have given you power, love and a sound mind. You are not foolish, I made Christ wisdom unto you. You are not unloved; you are My beloved. And I could go on. Start acting like who you are.
It is easy to rest in what you already have. It is hard to rest when you think you do not have what you need because then you are focused on trying to get it. But if you already have it there is no reason to be running off in every direction trying to obtain it. But that is what most of you are doing and that is why there is so much stress. I have already given you ALL you need for life and godliness. Have you never read: “To those who have received the same precious faith that we have, in the righteousness of our God and Savior, Jesus Christ: Grace and peace be multiplied to you in the knowledge of God and of Jesus our Lord; seeing that His divine power has granted to us everything pertaining to life and godliness, through the true knowledge of Him who called us in His own glory and excellence. For by these He has granted to us His precious and magnificent promises, so that by them you may become partakers of the divine nature, having escaped the corruption that is in the world by lust.” 2 Peter 1:1-4. Please read that a few times. I have given you a measure of faith when you are born again, it is My own faith, and it is precious, it is the currency of Heaven. And do you see that grace and peace (the rest) are multiplied to you as you grow in knowing who I am and what I have done for you in Jesus? I have called you to My own excellence and glory and I have granted you everything pertaining to life—natural and supernatural, and I had done this all when I rested on the seventh day for I had created all the materials, sustenance, wealth, and supply man would ever need. All you had to do was gather it as you guarded it and cultivated it. I have made you partakers of My divine nature. I share My life with you. That is grace.
Faith is a window into the spirit realm. It gives substance to what you hope for. If you are in a building with no windows you have no idea of what is going on outside. You are not even aware there are things on the outside of the building. Many are totally oblivious to the spirit realm. But it is more real than the natural, because the natural is temporal and changes but the spirit realm is eternal and does not change. But to know what is all around you in the spirit you have to have a window that sees out of the house of your five senses. To be carnally minded merely means you live only by your five senses, what you see, hear, touch, taste, and smell physically is all you consider. But once you look out through the window of My Word you get a whole new picture. Like when the Arameans came to take Elisha captive, Elisha’s servant looked out and saw a vast multitude of Arameans arrayed against them to attack and that was all he saw for he was only looking carnally. So he stressed out in fear. But Elisha remained calm and merely told the lad that they outnumbered the vast army. The lad was skeptical about that, to say the least. So Elisha saw he did not see what Elisha could discern in the spirit, so he prayed to Me, “O LORD, I pray, open his eyes that he may see.” And I opened the servant’s eyes and he saw; and behold, the mountain was full of horses and chariots of fire all around Elisha. My army of hosts. 2 Kings 6:17.
Open your eyes. Spiritual eyes, the eyes of your heart. Paul prayed I would enlighten the eyes of your heart to know the hope of My calling, the riches of My inheritance for you, and the greatness of the power I put in you by My Spirit, the same power that raised Jesus up from the dead.
When Hagar was in the wilderness with Ishmael, sent away to go on her own, she thought she had no water, but I opened her eyes and she saw a well of water; and she went and filled the skin with water and gave the lad a drink. Genesis 21:19. I opened her eyes. And again, with Balaam, “Then the Lord opened the eyes of Balaam, and he saw the angel of the Lord standing in the way with his drawn sword in his hand; and he bowed all the way to the ground.” Numbers 22:31.
When Paul explained the mission I had given him to King Agrippa, he explained that I had called Paul to go to Jews and gentiles “to open their eyes so that they may turn from darkness to light and from the dominion of Satan to God, that they may receive forgiveness of sins and an inheritance among those who have been sanctified by faith in Me.’ Acts 26:18.
Once you open your spiritual eyes and look out of the window in your house of five senses, you will realize what you already have in Christ and that all you have to do is release it. Your days of stress are over when you find out who you are and what you have in Christ.
And I have given you My authority to command things on the earth. Use it.
Know who you are, that you are fearfully, wonderfully made and that I have made you strong in Me, rich in Christ, and I have made Him wisdom for you, redemption, sanctification and righteousness. Know that you are loved beyond all you can ever ask or imagine. Do not stay locked in the house of your five senses. Look out through the window of faith and see the vast vista of the spirit realm, like Elisha, look out the window of faith when you seem to be hemmed in on every side and see the angels surrounding you. And that is when you can worship in spirit and truth. You can come to Me as who you really are in spirit and in truth and interact with Me in spirit and truth.
The real you can come out and rest in Me in true fellowship.
I am spirit and so are you. Live there and let Me open your eyes. And I do this by My Words. If you continue in My Word, you are truly My disciples, and you will know the truth and the truth will set you free.
I love you. Stop acting like someone you are not and start acting like who you are. Romans 12:1—2. Renew your mind in the mirror of My Word. Say with the Psalmist, “Open my eyes, that I may behold Wonderful things from Your law.” Psalm 119:18.
