But seek His kingdom, and these things will be added to you. Do not be afraid, little flock, for your Father has chosen gladly to give you the kingdom. Luke 12:31-32.
In Jesus and through faith in Him we may approach God with freedom and confidence. Ephesians 3:12.
Today your LORD (יהוה) God says:
When will you really start taking My Word seriously? You cannot straddle the fence. Either you believe My Word is truth or you do not.
Let Me explain what I am talking about. I am very clear that you are not to worry or be anxious about things. Especially such things as your provision and finances. Many of you need to hear My Words on this subject spoken to you through My Son. And there is no higher authority. At His Name everything in Heaven and on earth moves. All things that were made were made for Him, through Him, with Him, and in Him. Everything is summed up in Him.
And this is what He told you: “No one can serve two masters; for either he will hate the one and love the other, or he will be devoted to one and despise the other. You cannot serve God and wealth (mammon, i.e. wealth, and material goods personified as an object of worship). For this reason I say to you, stop being worried about your life, as to what you will eat or what you will drink; nor for your body, as to what you will put on. Is not life more than food, and the body more than clothing? Look at the birds of the air, that they do not sow, nor reap nor gather into barns, and yet your heavenly Father feeds them. Are you not worth much more than they? And who of you by being worried can add a single cubit to his height? And why are you worried about clothing? Observe how the lilies of the field grow; they do not toil nor do they spin, yet I say to you that not even Solomon in all his glory clothed himself like one of these. But if God so clothes the grass of the field, which is alive today and tomorrow is thrown into the furnace, will He not much more clothe you? You of little faith! Do not worry then, saying, ‘What will we eat?’ or ‘What will we drink?’ or ‘What will we wear for clothing?’ For the Gentiles eagerly seek all these things; for your heavenly Father knows that you need all these things. But seek first His kingdom and His righteousness, and all these things will be added to you. So do not worry about tomorrow; for tomorrow will care for itself. Each day has enough trouble of its own.” Matthew 6:24-34.
I tell you quite clearly many, many times in My Word that I will take care of you because I love you. You see that I take care of the birds, not one falls to the ground without My consent, and I open My hand to feed all My many creatures each day, so what makes you think I will not care for you? I have every hair of your head counted and you are worth more to Me than an entire flock of sparrows, or any other bird or creature in My vast domain for that matter. In fact, I created and care for the animals and plants so they can serve you for food, labor for you, and give you service and comfort. Every one of them has some function that helps your planet stay thriving. I even created the angels to serve you.
What makes you think I have left you orphans to look after yourselves? My Son told you who believe in Him, that I have not left you orphans, I have made you My children in Christ, and I am a good Father. I give good things to My children when they ask Me for them. I do not give you a serpent when you ask for a fish or a rock when you ask Me for bread. I bless your food and your water and take all sickness from you who serve Me, that is, you who believe in and love My Son. My sun shines on the good and the bad, and My rain falls for all, but My special care and grace are for those who serve Me by seeking My Kingdom and My righteousness. I feed them in time of famine and work all things for their good. In Christ Jesus, I supply all your needs according to My riches in glory. I take care of you in every aspect of your life. In Christ, I have blessed you with every spiritual blessing in Heaven and I have provided all you need for life and godliness. You are Mine and I will never leave you or forsake you. I tell you that many times. Do you really take it seriously? If you do, you should have no anxiety at all.
I have given you My peace by giving you My Word and that Word is living and active, so much so My Word became flesh and dwelt among you. And He took all your sins on Himself and bore your punishment and condemnation and freed you from the curse of the law. And I also tell you that He Himself bore all your diseases, infirmities, pain, guilt and shame. You have these precious and great promises which are all “yes” to you in Him. Do you take hold of them and refuse to let them go? Even in a storm of trouble? They are your anchor of hope and your solid foundation.
But you have a part. It is faith in My Word. It means refusing to let your hearts be troubled or afraid over anything. For I am greater than all your needs and it has pleased Me to give you, who are My little flock, My Kingdom. And when I tell you that I even counsel you to sell all you have and give it to the poor! Luke 12:31-33. And that is complete trust, the trust of a little child who has nothing but knows everything is taken care of by his father. It is I who take care of you, it is I who see to your needs. My apostle Paul put it this way: “We seem to have nothing, but everything is ours.” 2 Corinthians 6:10. I did not spare My own Son, but delivered Him over for you all, how will I not also with Him freely give you all things? Romans 8:32. Of course I will. And that is ALL things, everything you need and an abundance for good works. 2 Corinthians 9:8.
I want you to pray the prayer that My apostle Paul prayed for you. I want you to pray it for yourself and for your loved ones. I think you will understand it better now: “For this reason I bow my knees before the Father, from whom every family in heaven and on earth derives its name, that He would grant you, according to the riches of His glory, to be strengthened with power through His Spirit in the inner man, so that Christ may dwell in your hearts through faith; and that you, being rooted and grounded in love, may be able to comprehend with all the saints what is the breadth and length and height and depth, and to know the love of Christ which surpasses knowledge, that you may be filled up to all the fullness of God. Now to Him who is able to do far more abundantly beyond all that we ask or think, according to the power that works within us, to Him be the glory in the church and in Christ Jesus to all generations forever and ever. Amen.” Ephesians 3:14-21.
You have nothing to fear. I take care of all of your needs. How many times do I need to tell you that before you will stop worrying and enjoy all that I have provided for you?
Take authority over the spirit of fear. I did not give that spirit to you, that demon is from the pit of hell. Jesus told you to cast out demons in His Name. Submit to Me, that is, to My Word, resist the devil and he will flee from you. But it is you, not Me, who must resist his crafty attacks when he tries to steal your promises from Me, by putting you into fear and doubt. But I have given you authority over him in My Son. Take authority. And I tell you how. Put on the full armor that I give you and then wield the Sword of the Spirit, which is My Word, to rout him.
In case you do not know what the armor I give you is, or else, you did read it but never used it, let Me elucidate. I first tell you to be strong in Me and the strength of My might. Ephesians 6:10. Remember it is not by your power or might but by My Spirit that I clothe you in power from on High. And then I tell you to put on the full armor of God, so that you will be able to stand firm against the schemes of the devil. Ephesians 6:11. For your struggle is not against flesh and blood, but against the rulers, against the powers, against the world forces of darkness, against the spiritual forces of wickedness in the heavenly places. When you are attacked by the spirit of fear, depression, shame or other forms of darkness you need to be aware of demonic activity for he is crafty. So, you must stop his tactics, stop him before he gets any stronghold in your life. For he will steal your joy and My promises from you. Therefore, take up the full armor that I give you, and it all comes from knowing My Word, so that you will be able to resist in the evil day, and having done everything, to stand firm. Yes, when the dust storm he causes settles, you will be standing and he will flee from you. Stand firm therefore, having girded your loins with truth, and that is the truth of My Word, including My promises of healing, provision, joy, strength and abundant life, and having put on the breastplate of righteousness, which comes from knowing that Christ took all your sins and gave you My own righteousness. You must be established in righteousness to be far from oppression. And having shod your feet with the preparation of the gospel of peace, for My Son made peace between you and Me by the Blood of His Cross, for it is only then that you have peace with Me and peace with your fellow man, then, in addition to all, take up the shield of faith with which you will be able to extinguish all the flaming arrows of the evil one. And that is unwavering trust in My Word, that I watch over it to perform it and that if I said it, you can have it. And take the helmet of salvation, which guards your mind in the knowledge of My love for you as manifested in My Son, and the sword of the Spirit, which is My Word spoken out of your mouth. “By His stripes I am healed.” “I am a temple of the Holy Spirit and nothing unclean can enter or remain in me.” And as you stand in that armor and wield the Sword by My Words decreed by your mouth (two witnesses, Me and you) take your battle stance with all prayer and petition, praying at all times in the Spirit (tongues). Be alert. Guard your heart with the breastplate of righteousness. For there is no condemnation now for those who are in Christ Jesus. Do you know that? Or are you condemning yourself? A house divided will not stand.
Get in your armor of light and take authority. My magnificent promises are yours. Fight the good fight of faith for them. Never give up and never quit till My Word comes to pass in your life and the lives of those you love. It will not tarry, wait for it, and do not draw back and give up any territory to the evil one. You are on redemption ground.
Jacob believed Joseph was alive when he saw the twelve wagons piled high with provisions and good things that Joseph sent to bring him to Egypt. But I would ask to believe that I will supply your needs before the wagons show up. Try Me in this. Believe that you have received My provisions and care before you see them and watch Me inundate your life with good things. Be prepared, your neighbor will show up with your dinner all prepared for you. You need only enjoy it. Kind of like Elijah with the ravens bringing him breakfast and dinner. From that you should know, I will get your provisions to you some way when you serve Me. Peter found all the money he needed in the mouth of a fish he caught at My direction. I have My ways. Walk in them. Trust and love.
The Blood was enough. All your debts to divine justice are paid in full and then some.
I love you. Cast ALL your cares on Me because I care for you. And be anxious for nothing. Let Me take care of your life all day and all night every day and every night. Start today and do not worry. Actually, worry, fear and anxiety are sins, so watch it and guard your heart with My armor. And it all has to do with knowing My Word from cover to cover of your Bible.
