Love is patient and kind. Love is not jealous or boastful or proud or rude. It does not demand its own way. It is not irritable, and it keeps no record of being wronged. It does not rejoice about injustice but rejoices whenever the truth wins out. Love never gives up, never loses faith, is always hopeful, and endures through every circumstance. Love never fails. 1 Corinthians 13:4-8

Enoch walked with God; and he was not, for God took him. Genesis 5:24.

The LORD teaches the humble His way. Psalm 25:9.

All the paths of the LORD are love and truth. Psalm 25:10.

“I go and prepare a place for you, I will come again and receive you to Myself, that where I am, there you may be also. And you know the way where I am going.” John 14:3-4.

Today your LORD (יהוה) God says:

Your life on earth is an inner journey that you live until you become LOVE. And you become LOVE by walking humbly with Me, your God.

I make you a promise in My Word that I, the LORD, teach you to profit and the way you should go. Isaiah 48:17. Trust Me to keep My Word and teach you the way. But just as any learning in life, you must apply yourself as a good student to make your way prosperous and successful. Joshua 1:8.

I give you some very effective ways to do this in My Word. But let us start with a basic foundation. I tell you in Psalm 25, which is all about asking Me for direction, I teach the humble My Way. Psalm 25:9. The humble. Jesus told you that He is meek and humble of heart, and He is the Way to Me. So the way to be an excellent student is to walk humbly with Me. In fact this is just the kind of people I seek, have you never read My prophet Michah? “He has told you, O man (in Hebrew “adam” which includes male and female), what is good; and what does the LORD seek of you but to do justice, to love kindness (chesed, which is unconditional love, like the Greek word “agape”), and to walk humbly with your God.” Micah 6:8. With the humble there is wisdom, Proverbs 11:12, and with humility come riches, honor and life. Proverbs 22:4.

I teach the humble My Way. The humble one, the Hebrew word here is “anav.” The first time I use this Word in Scripture it is to describe Moses. Do you recall what I said about him? “And the man, Moses, was very humble, more than all men who were on the face of the earth.” Numbers 12:3. And I taught him face to face, just as you speak to a friend. Exodus 33:11. And he so loved learning from Me that his face would become radiant with My own radiance. I shone on him and he shone on Me. That is the way your time with Me should be. I even wrote out the directions I gave him on two tablets of stone with My own finger. And I did it twice because he broke the first set. I taught him for forty days and nights at a time and I spoke with him constantly as he led My people out of Egypt across the wilderness. I gave him the first five books of the Bible to write and showed him all that had taken place at creation and after. And he communicated with Me constantly, asking questions and referring all his cares to Me. I gave him all the intricate plans for My first dwelling place on earth and all the instructions for the priesthood, vestments, and sacrifices. I told Moses of the Christ. Jesus told you that Moses wrote about Him. John 5:46. And Moses told Me that if I would not go with him, he would not go anywhere. Exodus 33:15. And he prayed that I would let him know My ways that he would know Me and find favor in My sight. Exodus 33:13.

Moses was a willing learner and a humble man. When I first introduced Myself to him and told him of his assignment to save My people out of slavery and take them to the land I had promised Abraham, Isaac and Jacob, he saw himself as entirely incapable of having the skills, strength, and wisdom to do it. But he found out that if he walked with Me and listened to what I instructed him, his way became prosperous and successful. I taught him to profit and the way he should go. No mortal man again has done the mighty works and miracles that I performed at the hands of Moses. He devastated an entire empire without an army or any military weapons, parted the Red Sea, had manna and quail miraculously come upon the camp, got water out of rocks in a dry desert, and led a multitude of people out of slavery to freedom and taught them My Word.

And it all started when he was eighty years old. I teach the humble My way.

Being a good student, simply put, is being a disciple of My Word. And My Word is Jesus. And Jesus defined a disciple of His as follows: “If you abide (continue, remain, keep) in My Word, you are truly My disciple and then you will know the truth and the truth will set you free.” John 8:31-32.

And I tell you how to prosper and be blessed in Deuteronomy 28 as follows: “NOW IT SHALL BE, if you diligently listen to and obey the LORD your God, being careful to do all His commandments which I command you today, the LORD God will set you high above all the nations of the earth and all these blessings will come upon you and overtake you if you obey the LORD your God.” Deuteronomy 28:1-2. And they include the following, “The LORD will make you abound in happiness and prosperity (in valuable, beautiful goods).” Deuteronomy 28:11. That I will open for you My good treasuries to bless all the work of your hand. Deuteronomy 28:12. And to have all this you must not turn aside from My Word to the right or the left to go after other gods and serve them. Deuteronomy 28:14. Do you remember what I told Joshua when he was about to lead the people in to conquer the promised land? “Only be strong and very courageous; be careful to do according to all the law which Moses My servant commanded you; do not turn from it to the right or to the left, so that you may have success wherever you go. This book of the law shall not depart from your mouth, but you shall meditate on it day and night, so that you may be careful to do according to all that is written in it; for then you will make your way prosperous, and then you will have success. Have I not commanded you? Be strong and courageous! Do not tremble or be dismayed, for the LORD your God is with you wherever you go.” Joshua 1:7-9.

David sought constantly to learn from Me and get directions. He prayed, “Make me know Your ways, O LORD, teach me Your paths. Lead me in Your truth and teach me, for You are the God of my salvation; for You I wait all the day.” Psalm 25:4-5. Now you have the Holy Spirit in you and on you to lead you to all truth and teach you all things. I am the God of your Salvation. Be as eager to learn from Me as David was. And he had a very successful life.

Your life on earth is an inner journey that you live until you become LOVE. That really is all I am looking for. Do not worry so hard about what you have accomplished as far as outer works go in your life (remember, the greatest one among you is the one who serves the rest and the least among you is the greatest) for anything done without love is nothing. 1 Corinthians 13:1-3. It is just a noisy gong and profits nothing. Pursue love, yet desire earnestly spiritual gifts, especially that you may prophesy. But even the gift of prophecy and the working of miracles make you nothing if done without love.

Yes, I look at the inner man of the heart more than the outward appearance and works. Love is spirit, it is not of the flesh. I am spirit and I am LOVE. So love is spirit and not flesh. Jesus came in the flesh, so love can be clothed in flesh, but the fruit of the Spirit is  not the works of the flesh. You must grow up to perfect love.

And what is love? I tell you so that you will know very certainly who I want you to become before I can take you across the Light line to be with Me, like Enoch. He had to walk with Me three hundred years before he crossed to perfect love. But you have much more advantage than he did. You have My written Word and the Spirit in you to teach you and lead you to love.

Love is patient and kind. Love is not jealous or boastful or proud or rude. It does not demand its own way. It is not irritable, and it keeps no record of being wronged. It does not rejoice about injustice but rejoices whenever the truth wins out. Love never gives up, never loses faith, is always hopeful, and endures through every circumstance. Love never fails. 1 Corinthians 13:4-8

Do you see? Love is humble. It does not look only at self and self-interest, self-glory and ambition. It does not follow the flesh into anger, bitterness, offense, jealousy, abuse, lust, and evil. It leaves all that behind in a glory train of light that dissolves it all like the mist in the morning sun. Love frees you of encumbrances and sin. And how do you become LOVE? By walking with LOVE, that is, walking with Me. I told Abraham to walk before Me in My light and he would be blameless. As you walk in My Light the blood of Jesus continually cleanses you.

Sin is just a lack of love. Sin does not receive or give love. Love never harms the neighbor. Love is the way to keep all My commandments without even memorizing them.

If you are speaking lies, gossiping, speaking malice and bitterness, and speaking out in derogatory ways to others, shaming them and blaming them, even if you feel you have good cause to do so, think again. You are not love. And you will have to keep wandering around the same mountain in the wilderness until you get past those things and grow up. Go forward walking in the spirit. You must always speak the truth, but you must speak it in love. Love kindness.

Attach to the vine of Jesus and you will prosper. You will bear the fruit of the vine to which you attach. And what fruit am I speaking of? The fruit of the Spirit, which is love, joy, peace, patience, kindness, goodness, faithfulness, gentleness, self-control. Grow this fruit on your branch of the vine and all will become LOVE in you.

Have you ever seen My holy angels? Their faces shine with love, Show faces of love. Radiant faces of love. Remember Stephen? His face shone like that of an angel as he spoke My Word in truthful love. Acts 6:15. All in Heaven shines with love. Love is light and light is love. My Light. Light be and Light was. And it can shine in your heart from the face of Christ—Christ in you, your hope of glory. I light Heaven with My Glory and I am Love. Selah.

Humility is the ability to follow directions. That is, you do not always think you know better. Like bringing out My people and conquering Egypt with a staff. Exodus 4:17. But Moses did. It all depends on who is wielding the staff. Think about that next time you take over and go contrary to My Word. It is hard to kick against the goad. Acts 26:14.

I love you. All I seek is LOVE. Turn everything in you to love.

God is opposed to the proud, but gives grace to the humble. 1 Peter 5:5.

The reward of humility and the fear of the LORD are riches, honor and life. Proverbs 22:4.
