“Every good thing given and every perfect gift is from above, coming down from the Father of lights, with whom there is no variation or shifting shadow.” James 1:17.

Today your LORD (יהוה) God says:

Don’t see things as burdens, see them as gifts. Don’t see people as burdens, see them as gifts. Don’t see life as a burden, see it as a gift.

“Every good thing given and every perfect gift is from above, coming down from the Father of lights, with whom there is no variation or shifting shadow.” James 1:17.

“Come to Me all you who are weary and find life burdensome and I will refresh you,” cried out Jesus. How? He gives your dying, thirsty soul a drink. If you but knew My gift, you would ask Him for a drink, and He would have given you living water. John 4:10. And whoever drinks the water that He gives you will never thirst, for the water that He gives you become in you a spring of water leaping up to eternal life. John 4:14.

And what is that stream of living water? Pure liquid love coming from the source of My power, “and hope does not disappoint, because the love of God has been poured out within our hearts through the Holy Spirit who was given to us.” Romans 5:5.

Gifts. Good and perfect gifts. I so loved the world, I gave you My Son, and I so loved the Church, I gave you the Holy Spirit.

And the last call in the Bible is still to come and drink the gift of life-giving water! “The Spirit and the bride (the Church) say, “Come.” And let the one who hears say, “Come.” And let the one who is thirsty come; let the one who desires, take the water of life without cost.” Revelation 22:17.

So what is the answer to when you are weary and find life burdensome? When you lost your joy and zeal for living? When like Solomon in his old age and turning away from Me, instead of looking at all with joy and gratitude, he said everything is vanity, worthless, and endless toil that never as a different result than before. This is not a good ending to a life once filled with divine wisdom and excited joy in My presence, who wanted primarily to give Me glory upon glory in his wise rulership of My people and building Me a magnificent house of praise and worship.

The answer is simple, get filled with the Holy Spirit. When David, Solomon’s father, sinned that was his primary concern, “Create in me a clean heart, God, and renew a steadfast spirit within me. Do not cast me away from Your presence, and do not take Your Holy Spirit from me. Restore to me the joy of Your salvation and sustain me with a willing spirit.” Psalm 51:10-12.

For life not to be burdensome you need to raise up to a supernatural level of life. That is the life of spirit and truth. It is the life of faith. And it is there you walk in heavenly realms on earth. It is there you can receive the gifts of the Holy Spirit for the benefit of all.

And it is there that you can receive the ministry of angels that I have sent to serve those inheriting salvation. Hebrews 1:14.

So how do you get filled with the Holy Spirit. You ask Jesus for a drink, for He baptizes you in the Holy Spirit and it is He who pours Him out from My throne. Acts 2:33. But, now I will tell you how you do that. With joy. “With joy you will draw water from the springs of Salvation (Yeshuah),” sang the prophet Isaiah. Isaiah 12:2. “Behold, God is my salvation, I will trust and not be afraid; for the LORD God is my strength and song, and He has become my salvation. Therefore with joy you will draw water from the springs of salvation.” Isaiah 12:2. Your strength and song! My joy is your strength and song! And who has that joy? The Holy Spirit. He anointed Jesus with the oil of joy and He does the same for you. The Holy Spirit in you quickens your mortal body. A heart full of cheer (cheerful heart) does good, like a medicine, but a depressed spirit dries up your bones. Selah. Don’t trudge around thinking how burdened and taken advantage of you are, instead see it as gifts of service and love that I give you the opportunity to participate in with Me.

I tell you not to turn to wine, alcohol or other forms of intoxicants to fill you, but instead get filled with the Holy Spirit by addressing yourself and others in psalms, hymns, and spirit sent songs. To let My Word dwell in your richly and set your heart ablaze. Making melody to Me in your heart is the only solution to hopelessness, “and hope does not disappoint, because the love of God has been poured out within our hearts through the Holy Spirit who was given to us.” Romans 5:5.

You don’t need medication you need emancipation. And it is My Holy Spirit that sets you free, for if you continue in My Word (Spirit breathed), you are truly My disciples and then you will know the truth and the truth will set you free. My Word. A word of wisdom a word of knowledge. Words of edification, comfort and joy.

I have given each of you a gift, a good and perfect gift that you are to find joy in using. “As each one has received a gift, employ it in serving one another as good stewards of the manifold grace of God. Whoever speaks, as one who is speaking the utterances of God; whoever serves as one who is serving by the strength of God, so that in all things God may be glorified through Jesus Christ, to whom belongs the glory and the dominion forever and ever.” 1 Peter 4:10-11.

I have given you gifts but I also give you people as gifts to whom I have given other gifts so that all may benefit from many different gifts, but it is all from Me, the same LORD over all and in all.

I showed these things to My apostle Paul, and he is a gift to you all: “But to each one of us grace was given according to the measure of Christ’s gift. Therefore it says, ‘When He ascended on high, He led captive the captives, and He gave gifts to people.” (Now this expression, “He ascended,” what does it mean except that He also had descended into the lower parts of the earth? He who descended is Himself also He who ascended far above all the heavens, so that He might fill all things.) And He gave some as apostles, some as prophets, some as evangelists, some as pastors and teachers, for the equipping of the saints for the work of ministry, for the building up of the body of Christ; until we all attain to the unity of the faith, and of the knowledge of the Son of God, to a mature man, to the measure of the stature which belongs to the fullness of Christ.” Ephesians 4:7-13.

I give you gifts that you each have but I also give you gifts in other people I send into your life. All gifts, yours and theirs, work together to build up and join up the body so that all members are functioning together in unity under the head, which is Christ. Grow up in all aspects into Him who is the head, that is, Christ, from whom the whole body, being fitted and held together by what every joint supplies, according to the proper working of each individual part, causes the growth of the body for the building up of itself in love. Ephesians 4:15-16.

Do you see? I give you gifts of apostles, prophets, evangelists, pastors and teachers to help you grow in your relationship with Me and one another. Respect and love all the gifts around you and in you. All things are for you. Do not see them as burdens but as gifts. Gifts from your Father, coming down from My Kingdom to you. And you each have gifts from Me that differ according to the grace given to you, but to each one is given the manifestation of the Spirit for the common good. Romans 12:6; 1 Corinthians 12:7.

For just as you have many parts in one body and all the body’s parts do not have the same function, so you, who are many, are one body in Christ, and individually parts of one another. However, since you have gifts that differ according to the grace given to you for your assignment in building My Kingdom on earth, each of you is to use them properly and celebrate them in one another by benefiting from them and growing together, not in competition but in mutual admiration. And do not see your work as burdensome for one another, see it as a gift, if prophecy, in proportion to one’s faith; if service, in the act of serving; or the one who teaches, in the act of teaching; or the one who exhorts, in the work of exhortation; the one who gives, with generosity; the one who is in leadership, with diligence; the one who shows mercy, with cheerfulness. Romans 12:4-8.

I want you to be living in a such a way as to appreciate who I made you to be and to appreciate who I made others to be to you, whether they be exactly as you would like them or not. I send some to you for you to save and shepherd and others to save and shepherd you. Some I send you to comfort and edify and I send others to comfort and edify you.

See everything in your life as a gift and you will come out from under your burdens, you will find they are not burdens at all but great opportunities to grow in grace and truth, but above all continue to grow your relationship with Me so that you begin to live in the supernatural realm of Heaven on earth, moving in the gifts and power of the Holy Spirit. And you do that by joyfully drawing the water of life from the springs of Yeshuah.

I love you so come and receive the refreshment you are seeking so hard to find and you will find you had it all the time right where you are, you just weren’t singing.
