For You are great and do wondrous deeds; You alone are God. Teach me Your way, O LORD; I will walk in Your truth. Unite my heart to fear Your name. I will give thanks to You, O LORD my God, with all my heart, and will glorify Your name forever. For Your lovingkindness toward me is great, and You have delivered my soul from the depths of Sheol.” Psalm 86:10-13.
Today your LORD (יהוה) God says:
Unite your heart with Mine, so that My heart can flow into yours, for out of the heart flow the issues of life. Let our hearts be so united that the life that is in Me flows into you. Rivers of living water, rivers of life, rivers of love, rivers of joy, rivers of peace, and wherever the river flows, healing flows. And how do our hearts unite? In the Spirit. You all have access to Me by the One Spirit and when you join with Jesus you become one spirit with Me in Him, for He is the one that pours the Spirit out upon you that He receives on your behalf from Me.
I heal the broken hearted by uniting their hearts with Mine. I have a healing heart of love. Love heals and love fulfills.
David wanted a heart united with Mine and I call him a man after My own heart. “For You are great and do wondrous deeds; You alone are God. Teach me Your way, O LORD; I will walk in Your truth. Unite my heart to fear Your name. I will give thanks to You, O LORD my God, with all my heart, and will glorify Your name forever. For Your lovingkindness toward me is great, and You have delivered my soul from the depths of Sheol.” Psalm 86:10-13.
Never think of us as separated. We are united. I am not judging you. I am not mad at you or disappointed with you when you miss a direction out of the weakness of your flesh or a lack of assurance that it is from Me. I am not counting your trespasses against you—in Jesus I reconcile you to Me not counting your trespasses against you. I do not refuse to bless you without perfect performance on your part. Not at all, I am inviting you to unite with Me and to be more open to working with Me, instead of for Me, in winning souls. Stop thinking you have to impress Me with your perfect obedience before I will bless you. If you are willing to obey and quick to repent that is enough. Faith is what impresses Me to blessing you. A heart filled with trusting faith is a heart like unto My heart. Great is My faithfulness.
Faith does things with Me. If you have faith in My love and goodness you will understand that I am on your side and walk with you. David sang, “This I know, that God is for me. In God, whose word I praise, in the LORD, whose word I praise, in God I have put my trust, I shall not be afraid.” Psalm 56:9-11.
Many people have the mind set that they do things that please Me and then I do things for them, as if it goes back and forth dependent on your performance each time. But this is not the relationship I seek with My children. I desire that you do everything together with Me—like the vine and the branch. The vine and the branch work together in unity, if they separate no fruit comes forth from either side.
Jesus gave you the illustration of the vine and the branches. He is the vine, you are the branches, and I am the vinedresser. Consider this and you will begin to understand the magnitude of this for your life in this world and for eternity. We are operating together in an enterprise of enormous proportions that reaches beyond the veil into the Kingdom, and into the very command center of all things, the Holy of Holies.
But take a look at what each supplies—the source of the life that flows into the branches is the vine and the vine is rooted in its source of supply for all flows from Me. And the vinedresser cares for the vine, and to do this he primarily works on the branches. And the vinedresser considers the branches and the vine as one entity, not as separate entities. The branches are an integral part of the vine and are the fruitful parts of the vine. I see you in Christ Jesus. I gave Him to you that you might live your life through Him.
Consider what Jesus told you, “I am the true vine, and My Father is the vinedresser. Every branch in Me that does not bear fruit, He takes away; and every branch that bears fruit, He prunes (cleans, purifies) it so that it may bear more fruit. You are already clean because of the word which I have spoken to you. Abide in Me, and I in you. As the branch cannot bear fruit of itself unless it abides in the vine, so neither can you unless you abide in Me. I am the vine, you are the branches; he who abides in Me and I in him, he bears much fruit, for apart from Me you can do nothing. If anyone does not abide in Me, he is thrown away as a branch and dries up; and they gather them, and cast them into the fire and they are burned. If you abide in Me, and My words abide in you, ask whatever you wish, and it will be done for you. My Father is glorified by this, that you bear much fruit, and so prove to be My disciples. Just as the Father has loved Me, I have also loved you; abide in My love. If you keep My commandments, you will abide in My love; just as I have kept My Father’s commandments and abide in His love. These things I have spoken to you so that My joy may be in you, and that your joy may be made full.” John 15:1-11. You see this union with Jesus as you produce the fruit together is a life of joy. It is the Kingdom life of righteousness, peace and joy in the Holy Spirit.
Jesus calls you into this unification and identification with Him and with Me. “At that time Jesus said, “I praise You, Father, Lord of heaven and earth, that You have hidden these things from the wise and intelligent and have revealed them to infants. Yes, Father, for this way was well-pleasing in Your sight. All things have been handed over to Me by My Father; and no one knows the Son except the Father; nor does anyone know the Father except the Son, and anyone to whom the Son wills to reveal Him. “Come to Me, all who are weary and heavy-laden, and I will give you rest. Take My yoke upon you and learn from Me, for I am gentle and humble in heart, and you will find rest for your souls. For My yoke is easy and My burden is light.” He invites you into that partnership where you pull together with Him. But He is doing heavy pulling. He carried away your sins and sickness. He bore that burden for you.
Stop carrying your burdens around. Let us pull together and I will bear the load. “The things that you carry are burdensome, a load for the weary beast. They stooped over, they have bowed down together; they could not rescue the burden, but have themselves gone into captivity. Listen to Me, O house of Jacob, and all the remnant of the house of Israel, you who have been borne by Me from birth and have been carried from the womb; even to your old age I will be the same, and even to your graying years I will bear you! I have done it, and I will carry you; and I will bear you and I will deliver you. Isaiah 46:1-4.
I desire that all people be saved and come to know the truth and I desire that you prosper and be in good health, even as your soul prospers by walking in the truth. You see that salvation, prosperity, and health all depend on you abiding in the truth. My Word is truth. Jesus is the Way, the truth, and the life. If you continue (abide, remain) in My Word, you are truly My disciples, and then you will know the truth and the truth will set you free. And that was the way Jesus told you that you attach to and remain in the vine– by remaining in My Word and letting My Word remain in you. And that is the way you unite your heart with Mine, when there is nothing but My Word in your heart and that makes your heart like unto Mine. And those of like kind join with those of like kind. And then you ask what you will and it shall be done for you. Why? Because we are of one heart and one mind and what you want is what I want and what I want is what you want because we are like minded. This should not surprise you, I created you in My image and likeness.
I love you. Unite your heart with Mine for out of the heart flow the issues of life.
