“And My people shall be filled to overflowing with My goodness,” says the LORD. Jeremiah 31:14.
Today your LORD (יהוה) God (אלהים) says:
Walking in the Spirit is walking in My goodness. My goodness brings to repentance, a complete change of mind about who I am to you and who you are to Me. You are precious in My sight and I love you. And My love makes Me share My life and all I am and have with you. You can have everything if you will just open up to receive My goodness.
You do not truly realize the extent to which you are loved and forgiven by Me and the vastness of what I have prepared for your life for now and forever. If you did you could not contain it and you would simply cross over to be with Me in the Kingdom, like Enoch did under the glory of the revelation when it truly flooded his soul with My goodness. The earth could no longer contain him. Genesis 5:21-24.
People, even those who love and believe in Me, hold Me at a distance and are not open to receive the fullness of My goodness and love. You hinder Me. You are not wide open to Me like a little child is to his or her parents. If you will open wide your heart and let Me flood you with My goodness you will be healed and you will prosper.
If you will lift up your eyes and let Me open the eyes of your heart, as Elisha asked Me to do for his servant so his servant could see what I had provided and be as at peace as Elisha was in the midst of an attacking army, you will see the things you have held back from receiving that are there waiting for you to take them.
And his servant said to Elisha, “Alas, my master! What shall we do?” So he answered, “Do not fear, for those who are with us are more than those who are with them.” Then Elisha prayed and said, “O LORD, I pray, open his eyes that he may see.” And the LORD opened the servant’s eyes and he saw; and behold, the mountain was full of horses and chariots of fire all around Elisha. 2 Kings 6:15-17.
And there are many things I do like that in the spirit realm that I give you to protect, heal, and provide for you. And these are yours in Christ Jesus and I do not take them back. I have blessed you with every spiritual blessing in Christ Jesus since the foundation of the world.
Blessed be the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, who has blessed us with every spiritual blessing in the heavenly places in Christ, just as He chose us in Him before the foundation of the world, that we would be holy and blameless before Him. In love He preordained us to adoption as sons through Jesus Christ to Himself, according to the kind intention of His will, to the praise of the glory of His grace, which He freely bestowed on us in the Beloved. In Him we have redemption through His blood, the forgiveness of our trespasses, according to the riches of His grace which He lavished on us. Ephesians 1:3-8.
Like the promised land was there waiting for My people though the ones who should have taken it did not, but their children did. My gifts and My call are irrevocable.
Now we have received, not the spirit of the world, but the Spirit who is from God, so that we may know the things freely given to us by God. 1 Corinthians 2:12.
I am grieved when you do not take what I have freely given you and instead spend the years I wanted to fill with good things and fruitful works in the wilderness wandering around the same mountain as the generation redeemed out of slavery did. I never withheld My goodness and care from them but they limited Me by walking in the flesh. They never opened their eyes to all that I had prepared and freely given to them, and consequently they blocked it from entering their lives and filling their days with goodness.
How often they rebelled against Him in the wilderness, grieved Him in the desert! Yes, again and again they tempted God, and limited the Holy One of Israel. They did not remember His power: the day when He redeemed them from the enemy. Psalm 78:40-42.
Only two of them did take the promised land, Joshua and Caleb, and I said that they were of a different spirit. And they became that way by faith. They knew Me personally, but the others did not pursue that relationship. Joshua spent day and night in My Word both as the servant of Moses and as the leader and commander of My people. The difference was he did not limit his life to walking in the flesh but by My Word he walked in a higher realm, that of the supernatural which should be the natural of believers.
I want to fill you with goodness.
Oh, taste and see the goodness of the LORD; blessed is the man who trusts in Him! Oh, worship the LORD, you His saints! There is no want to those who revere Him. The young lions lack and suffer hunger; but those who seek the LORD shall not lack any good. Psalm 34:8-9.
I do not want you to know good and evil in your lives, I want you to know the good alone and be free of all evil.
I am rejoicing over you, but I want you to be wise in what is good and innocent in what is evil. The God of peace will soon crush Satan under your feet. Romans 16:19-20.
Behold, I give you the authority to trample on serpents and scorpions, and over all the power of the enemy, and nothing shall by any means hurt you. Luke 10:19.
The problem is that, like Joseph’s brothers, you do not understand the extent of My goodness and love towards you so you hold Me at a distance, not sure you are right with Me or that I am right with you, still trying to seek the forgiveness and justification that you have in Christ by your own efforts. But in Jesus I took down all that divides us. In Him you are not just forgiven, your sins are gone. He took them and was punished for you on your behalf. And when He died, you died, and when I raised Him I raised you with Him, justified and a new creation in Christ. My love is not passive but is actively putting My power into you, resurrection power.
I am the LORD your God, who brought you out of the land of Egypt; open your mouth wide, and I will fill it. Psalm 81:10.
And what do I fill your mouth with that brings all good into you? My Words. I have put My Words in your mouth, covered you with the power and protection of My hand, and given you My Spirit.
“But My people would not heed My voice, and Israel would have none of Me. So I gave them over to their own stubborn heart, to walk in their own counsels. Oh, that My people would listen to Me, that Israel would walk in My ways! I would soon subdue their enemies, and turn My hand against their adversaries. The haters of the LORD would pretend submission to Him, but their fate would endure forever. He would have fed them also with the finest of wheat; and with honey from the rock I would have satisfied you.” Psalm 81:11-16.
I am for you not against you. I sent Jesus to save you, not to judge you. I judged Him in your place. I put all your sins on Him and gave you His righteousness, simply by your faith in Him. It is grace, grace upon grace. You are saved by grace through faith.
For we also once were foolish ourselves, disobedient, deceived, enslaved to various lusts and pleasures, spending our life in malice and envy, hateful, hating one another. But when the kindness of God our Savior and His love for mankind appeared, He saved us, not on the basis of deeds which we have done in righteousness, but according to His mercy, by the washing of regeneration and renewing by the Holy Spirit, whom He poured out upon us richly through Jesus Christ our Savior, so that being justified by His grace we would be made heirs according to the hope of eternal life. Titus 3:3-7.
I have taken all your sins away and put them on Jesus and He and I took care of them so that you might live free of them and the guilt, shame and remorse that goes with them. He took it all. And My Spirit testifies to your spirit that your sins and offenses I remember no more, for He testifies of Jesus.
With Me there is no looking back at past sins once you are walking in My light and Jesus’ blood is continually cleansing you from all sin until you become perfect and complete in Christ.
If we walk in the Light as He Himself is in the Light, we have fellowship with one another, and the blood of Jesus His Son cleanses us from all sin. If we say that we have no sin, we are deceiving ourselves and the truth is not in us. If we confess our sins, He is faithful and righteous to forgive us our sins and to cleanse us from all unrighteousness. 1 John 1:7-9.
Just be open to Me and let Me help you. Even when you go off course and get in the dark valley of the shadow of death, I send Jesus your good Shepherd to redeem you from the pit and lead you to My table set before you filled with My promises for you to eat and be transformed till your cup runs over with My goodness and your head is covered with My anointing with the oil of joy pouring down from the head of your High Priest Jesus over His body on earth, of which you are a part.
I am faithful who called you to fellowship with My Son. 1 Corinthians 1:9. I work in you to will and to do in order to complete the good work I have begun in you.
For it is God who is at work in you, both to will and to work for His good pleasure. Philippians 2:13.
But to be filled to overflowing you must be willing to repent, renew, and run with My Word. These are the three R’s of following Jesus. Repent (take Him as your Lord and change your mind to His Way of thinking and a firm purpose to raise your thoughts to be like His and walk in the light, leaving the old dark ways behind), renew (be transformed (metamorphosis) by the renewal of your mind in My Word), and run (letting go of all encumbrances and the sin that so easily ensnares you as you keep your eyes on Jesus and run forward forgetting what lies behind as you press towards the goal of your high calling in Christ!). And these are the three R’s that change you from sinners to saints by His Blood and the Word and the indwelling Holy Spirit.
And I respond with My three R’s as you do your three R’s. For whatever you do for Me, I far outdo in My great love for you. I restore, resurrect, and reward you who seek Me with all your hearts. My three R’s of what I do when you repent and run to Me.
And I would like to add a fourth R to My part and that is the word “release.” My Son releases you from your sins by His Blood, Revelation 1:5-6, restores all the devil stole—all you lost in sin and idle words and unfruitful lives, resurrects your spirits to new life even now and your bodies to follow in the last day, and reward you with far beyond all you can ask or even imagine, so vast is what I have prepared for those who love Me. And I reveal these things to you, all I have freely given you, even now, by My Spirit in you. 1 Corinthians 2:9-13.
Rise up out of the dust and shine! My glory is rising on you. Shake off your chains and put on the glorious garments of Salvation, the robe of righteousness, and My full armor of light that I offer you. Lift up and open your eyes to all that good that I am streaming into your life and receive Me into your house with joy, like Zacchaeus received Jesus. Salvation came to his house and he was changed forever. Open wide your mouth and I will fill it.
Arise, shine; for your light has come, and the glory of the LORD has risen upon you. For behold, darkness will cover the earth and deep darkness the peoples; but the LORD will rise upon you and His glory will appear upon you. Nations will come to your light, and kings to the brightness of your rising. Lift up your eyes round about and see; they all gather together, they come to you. Your sons will come from afar, and your daughters will be carried in the arms. Then you will see and be radiant, and your heart will thrill and rejoice; because the abundance of the sea will be turned to you, the wealth of the nations will come to you. Isaiah 60:1-5.
You have forgotten the mission statement of Jesus that He set out before you so could have it all.
“The Spirit of the LORD is upon Me because He anointed Me to preach the gospel to the poor. He has sent Me to proclaim release to the captives, and recovery of sight to the blind, He has sent me to bind up the brokenhearted, to set free those who are oppressed, to proclaim the favorable year of the LORD.” Luke 4:18-19; Isaiah 61:1-2.
And never forget all My benefits for they are for you!
Bless the LORD O my soul, and all that is within me, bless His holy name. Bless the LORD, O my soul, and forget none of His benefits; He pardons all your iniquities, He heals all your diseases; He redeems your life from the pit, He surrounds you with lovingkindness and compassion; He fills your days with good, so that your youth is renewed like the eagle. Psalm 103:1-5.
Do not be like the barren bush in the desert that never sees good when it comes and lets it just pass right on by. Be like the tree planted by the underground streams who puts its roots deep down into the continuous life stream.
I love you; do you know it? Have you come to know and believe in the love I have for you? If not, you will not be able to receive the floods of My goodness. You will never receive what you don’t believe.
As Jesus went on from there, two blind men followed Him, crying out, “Have mercy on us, Son of David!” When He entered the house, the blind men came up to Him, and Jesus said to them, “Do you believe that I am able to do this?” They said to Him, “Yes, Lord.” Then He touched their eyes, saying, It shall be done to you according to your faith.” And their eyes were opened. Matthew 9:27-30.
