“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.” Matthew 11:28-30.
Today your LORD (יהוה) God (אלהים) says:
One of the lies of the devil that leads people who do not know Me away from Me is that it is hard and unpleasant to serve Me and do My Will. That living by My Word you will not have any fun. This is completely reversed, it is hard, harsh, and unpleasant to serve the devil but to serve Me is life and peace. It is the glorious freedom of My children. That was what the prodigal son thought when he left his father to have “freedom,” but instead he ended up in captivity
But because of this lie, which is accepted by many, they end up serving the devil in the slavery of sin and death instead of reigning in life through Jesus Christ. And if they do not wake up they will end their days having lived a wasted life, a life centered on catering to their flesh, but the flesh is headed for death and will go back to the earth from which it came, but their spirit and soul will live forever, either with Me or with the devil.
My Will for your life is that you prosper and be in good health, even as your soul (mind, will, and emotions) prosper. A life to total wholeness in every area, spiritual, physical, emotional, and financial (shalom). For I know My plans and purposes for you and I know Satan’s plans and purposes for you and you must choose who you will serve.
There are only two choices there is no middle ground. You will either have eternal life beginning now or eternal death that ends in no way out of the place reserved for the devil and his angels (demonic unclean spirits).
In serving Me there is healing, provision, prosperity, adventure, protection, and deliverance. I have redeemed you, forgiven you, given you My righteousness, and made you holy, blameless and without reproach.
But there is an error you can make here. Many very well meaning believers have made “serving” Me very unattractive. They treat Me as if I were Satan in many ways. They decide I am pleased when they are suffering from self-inflicted poverty, sickness, discomfort and the like. So they withdraw from doing anything fruitful in the world and do “penance” for themselves and sinners.
Many treat their bodies very harshly, even whipping themselves and wearing uncomfortable and painful things under their clothes that scratch and hurt them.
These are matters which have, to be sure, the appearance of wisdom in self-made religion and self-abasement and severe treatment of the body, but are of no value against fleshly indulgence. Colossians 2:23.
When I designed clothes for the Levites and priests they were garments of finest linen and of beauty and glory. And look at the colors on flowers, Jesus told you that not even Solomon in all his splendor was arrayed as one of these.
I love to make things beautiful with colors and sparking light. Look at butterfly wings and so many other things. Look at the blue sky and white clouds, the sunrise and sunset, the majestic mountains, and fields of wildflowers. And a world filled with corruption and the curse that is nothing compared to its former glory because Adam sinned.
And read the descriptions of how I adorn My Kingdom of Heaven with foundation stones of precious gems, gates of pearl, and streets of spun gold, and the beauty of the garments of the saints in light.
The holy angels too are creatures of amazing beauty of translucent white light with lovely vestments and wings. They look just like you but are made of a different substance that is not known on the earth.
And behold, a severe earthquake had occurred, for an angel of the Lord descended from heaven and came and rolled away the stone and sat upon it. And his appearance was like lightning, and his clothing as white as snow. Matthew 28:2-3.
And if you could just see, and My servant Paul prayed you would get a spirit of revelation and knowledge and that the eyes of your heart would be enlightened so that you could see things in the Spirit– things which eye has not seen and ear has not heard, and which have not entered the heart of man, all that I have prepared for those who love Me you would begin to grasp the limitless love I have for you that is from everlasting to everlasting that makes you entitled to all My good and perfect gifts. And My most perfect gift to you of all is Jesus. You can live your life through and in Him. And He pours out upon you the gift of the Holy Spirit and fire! And then the Holy Spirit gives you gifts (grace endowments) such as the word of wisdom, word of knowledge, working of miracles, extraordinary faith, gifts of healings, prophecy, discernment of spirits, tongues, and interpretation of tongues, that make your life extraordinary and very beneficial to all. A whole new level of living and knowing.
And if you receive Jesus as Lord and draw close to Me through Him, I draw close to you and we can have sweet fellowship and partnership. I can show you things and give you revelation of My Word. And I sing over you with joy and surround you with songs of deliverance, and I impart them to your heart in the spirit and you can join and sing them back to Me and we will become a symphony of agreement and love and it will become the Song of Songs. My Son’s love for the bride, the church, His own body on earth.
And as you renew your mind in My Word you will see yourself transformed. You will see My Word—My covenant promises—coming to pass in your life. And the beauty you long for in yourself and the things in your life—the healing, the health, the finances, your calling, your skills at your job and ministry will suddenly be making appearance in you and your life. Like flowers blooming and opening in the sun of righteousness.
For behold, the winter is past, the rain is over and gone. The flowers have already appeared in the land; the time has arrived for pruning the vines, and the song of the dove has been heard in our land. Song of Songs 2:11-12.
Are you watching with love as My Words come to pass? Are you watching with joy as you see beauty at last? Are you watching with wonder at all that I do each day in and around you? If so you have developed trust in Me and are thinking more like Me. You will see and take the good when it comes and not miss it as the scoffers do.
And another wonderful part of doing My Will and serving Me is that you can keep Me always present as your helper and get input from Me on what to do in everything you face during the day to be able to act in excellence. This is what Joseph the son of Jacob did. Even sold as a slave for Potiphar I was with Joseph so he became a prosperous and successful man in slavery! Genesis 39:2. Why? He had excellent skills that he put to work to prosper his master.
Now his master saw that the Lord was with Joseph and how the Lord caused all that he did to prosper in his hand. So Joseph found favor in his sight and became his personal servant; and he made him overseer over his house, and all that he owned he put in his charge. It came about that from the time he made him overseer in his house and over all that he owned, the Lord blessed the Egyptian’s house on account of Joseph; thus the Lord’s blessing was upon all that he owned, in the house and in the field. Genesis 39:3-5.
And later the same thing happened when Joseph was thrown in prison.
But the Lord was with Joseph and extended kindness to him, and gave him favor in the sight of the chief jailer. The chief jailer committed to Joseph’s charge all the prisoners who were in the jail; so that whatever was done there, he was responsible for it. The chief jailer did not supervise anything under Joseph’s charge because the Lord was with him; and whatever he did, the Lord made to prosper. Genesis 39:21-23.
The blessing will go to work anywhere you are if you only walk with Me and do My Will for your life.
Life with Me is not restricting or restraining, it took Joseph from a slave and a prisoner to the ruler of Egypt only second in power to Pharoah himself. But it turned out to be Joseph who ran the country. And Pharaoh, like Potiphar, loved it and gave Joseph more and more responsibility, because Joseph did not seek his own interests but those of Pharaoh and made him rich in what he did. And I gave him the skills to do it, the interpretation of dreams and the plans to implement them. I did the same for Daniel even as a prisoner in a foreign land. His excellent spirit brought him honor and high government provisions.
Your gifts will bring you before great men, and your gifts will make you great men and women.
Come to Me, learn from Me, walk with Me, talk with Me, listen to Me, sing with Me. I will make known to you the path of life; fullness of joy in My presence, the delights at My right hand forever. Psalm 16:11.
When you need help, just say, “Please help me,” and I am right there at your side and in you to answer you. In your work, in your studies, in your chores ask Me to help you with problems that no one else sees the solution to and I will show you and all will be amazed at your wisdom and skill. They will begin to say, “I know that with you it will all work out so well and flow to the desired result.” Everyone should now they just need to bring the work to you and it will succeed. And if you are keeping your eyes on Me, it will. I will prosper the work of your hands. Whatever you put your hand to shall prosper when you are remaining in My Word and it is remaining in you.
How blessed is the man who does not walk in the counsel of the wicked, nor stand in the path of sinners, nor sit in the seat of scoffers! But his delight is in the law of the LORD, and in His law he meditates day and night. He will be like a tree firmly planted by [b]streams of water,
Which yields its fruit in its season and its leaf does not wither; and in whatever he does, he prospers. Psalm 1:1-3.
Receive My Word with humility and honor and it will save your souls. My Word will renew your minds and wash them with pure water, give health to your bodies and give you eternal life.
But one who looks intently at the perfect law, the law of liberty, and abides by it, not having become a forgetful hearer but an effectual doer, this man will be blessed in what he does. James 1:25.
You will bear much fruit and thus show yourselves to be My followers.
Now as they observed the confidence of Peter and John and understood that they were uneducated and untrained men, they were amazed, and began to recognize them as having been with Jesus. And seeing the man who had been healed standing with them, they had nothing to say in reply. Acts 4:12-13.
By your excellence, diligence, and willingness to serve people should know that you have been with Me and have learned My ways.
In Hebrew, the language in which the Old Testament was written, the word for My Will is “ratzon,” which also means “favor.” Yes, My Will o show you My favor. For if you renew your mind and are transformed you will discern My good, pleasant, and perfect Will.
I love you, where I am there will My servants be and that is in the place of love, light, peace, excellence, beauty, blessing, and very often persecution besides. Some people just cannot accept that prosperity is a part of life with Me and will not receive it. You can only receive as much as you believe.
How precious is Your lovingkindness, O God! And the children of men take refuge in the shadow of Your wings. They drink their fill of the abundance of Your house; and You give them to drink of the river of Your delights. For with You is the fountain of life; in Your light we see light. Psalm 36:7-9.
