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. Matthew 11:29.

Today your LORD (יהוה) God (אלהים) says:

Love speaks and love knows what to say.

I will hear what God the LORD will say; for He will speak peace (shalom) to His people, to His godly ones. Psalm 85:8.

Love is a witness to love. Don’t worry when they drag you before kings, leaders, and judges to testify of Me, the Holy Spirit will witness with your spirit and give you words and a wisdom that no one can take exception to or contradict. My Holy Spirit testifies to Jesus, and you must do so as well if you are speaking with My Spirit. No one can say “Jesus is Lord,” except by the Holy Spirit.

“But before all these things, they will lay their hands on you and will persecute you, delivering you to the synagogues and prisons, bringing you before kings and governors for My name’s sake. It will lead to an opportunity for your testimony. So make up your minds not to prepare beforehand to defend yourselves; for I will give you words and wisdom which none of your opponents will be able to resist or refute. Luke 21:12-15.

Love commands and love stands. Truth wins but truth spoken in love moves hearts to repentance.

As a result, we are no longer to be children, tossed here and there by waves and carried about by every wind of doctrine, by the trickery of men, by craftiness in deceitful scheming; but speaking the truth in love, we are to grow up in all aspects into Him who is the head, even 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 4:14-16.

My ways are love and truth. Psalm 25:10. My ways and My thoughts are higher than yours, Isaiah 55:8-9, but in Jesus, and with My Holy Spirit dwelling your spirit, 1 Corinthians 3:16, I have brought you up to a whole new level. Colossians 3:1-3, Ephesians 2:6. By the gift of the Holy Spirit I pour My love into your heart, Romans 5:5, and He guides you to all truth. John 16:13.

Jesus told you that you who believe in Him, you to whom the Holy Spirit has been given, would do the works He did and greater even than the works He did. John 14:12. Jesus did amazing works. Are you doing them and greater? He healed the sick, gave sight to the blind, cleansed lepers, raised the dead, provided for every need in abundance, caused the lame to walk, cast out demons, stopped storms, and set captives free. When He saw the sick, the oppressed, and any heavily burdened He had compassion and reached out to heal.

When He went ashore, He saw a large crowd, and felt compassion for them and healed their sick. Matthew 14:14.

What was it about Jesus that made Him so powerful and yet He had totally emptied Himself of His God powers and become one like you in all things but sin. He was not so powerful because He was God, He was walking in the limitations of the flesh as you do. Otherwise you would not be able to do the works He did and greater.

Let Him tell you, “Do you not believe that I am in the Father, and the Father is in Me? The words that I say to you I do not speak on My own initiative, but the Father abiding in Me does His works. Believe Me that I am in the Father and the Father is in Me; otherwise believe because of the works themselves. Truly, truly, I say to you, he who believes in Me, the works that I do, he will do also; and greater works than these he will do; because I go to the Father. John 14:9-12.

“For I did not speak on My own initiative, but the Father Himself who sent Me has given Me a commandment as to what to say and what to speak. I know that His commandment is eternal life; therefore the things I speak, I speak just as the Father has told Me.” John 12:49-50.

Jesus said, “When you lift up the Son of Man, then you will know that I am He, and I do nothing on My own initiative, but I speak these things as the Father taught Me. And He who sent Me is with Me; He has not left Me alone, for I always do the things that are pleasing to Him.” John 8:28-29.

He always did what was pleasing to Me. His heart was always turned to Me, to hear what I was speaking to My people. That is why He so often greeted you with “Shalom.” My plans for you are shalom (peace, prosperity, health, good relationships, fruitfulness, and joy) and not evil, to give you a future and a hope. His heart is pure. Blessed are the pure in heart for they shall see Me. And in seeing Me, you see the works I am showing you to do.

How do you do the works He did and greater? By having a heart like unto His heart. And in seeing Him you see Me, so it is having a heart like unto My heart.

The plans of the LORD stand firm forever, the purposes of his heart through all generations. Psalm 33:11.

How can you make your heart like the heart of Jesus so that you can do the works He did and greater? For if your day is not made up of setting captives free, healing the sick, casting out demons, giving sight to the blind, and telling the poor the good news, you are certainly not operating as Jesus promised you that you as believers could and should do.

Let Jesus tell you about His heart:

“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.

He is meek and humble of heart.

Think about that. Humble. I resist the proud but give grace, great grace, to the humble.

Who was the man that did the greatest miracles that the world has ever seen? Moses. He devastated an empire by just raising and lowering his shepherd’s staff, received instructions for the Passover, brought the people out wealthy, healthy, and laden with silver and gold, he parted the Red Sea and led more than two million people through its midst with the water congealed and divided, standing as two towering walls as they walked through the canyon between on dry land, and then he made the sea return to its liquid state and drowned an entire army in the most strategic battle plan ever conceived. And it did not stop there, he led the people through a howling wilderness full of dangers in perfect protection by following the cloud of My glory for I dwelt among them and walked with Moses as My friend, defeated enemy armies that got in their way to cross the wilderness, had manna fall every morning before dawn except on the Shabbat when I gave the double portion the night before. Received from Me intricate plans to build My dwelling place, which was completely mobile to travel with My people through the desert, received and wrote the first five books of the Bible as if there when each event took place, and made water gush from rocks like rivers in the desert giving drink to over two million people and their herds and flocks.

And what do I tell you about the heart of Moses? Now the man Moses was very humble, more than any man who was on the face of the earth. Numbers 12:3.

Humble. Humble yourself under My mighty hand so I can raise you up on high. Humility goes before honors.

What is humility? What is meekness? For I tell you that the meek shall inherit the earth.

Jesus is gentle and humble of heart. The word there translated “gentle” is also translated “meek.” It is the Greek word “praus (πραΰς),” which means mild, gentle, it does not mean weak but refers to exercising My strength under Mhy control – i.e. demonstrating power without undue harshness. And the word translated “humble” is tapeinos (ταπεινός), which means lowly, hence lowly in spirit—inner lowliness describing the person who depends on the Lord rather than self, that is, being reliant on Me rather than self-reliant – which always exalts a person (brings them true worth). 1 Peter 5:6.

Jesus told you to humble yourselves like little children for they are of greatest importance in the heavenly realm. My apostle Peter by My Spirit told you when you humble yourselves under My mighty hand you do so by casting all your care on Me because I care for you.

What do little children know? They know they are not their own source, nor do they want to be. This does not disturb them. They rest in confidence that their father will provide all they need or want. They can do nothing without their parents but everything with them.

You can do nothing without Me. Not even breathe. But that is not a bad thing at all. You have a source that is Love with which nothing is impossible, nothing is too wonderful,  and nothing is too hard for Me to perform. You can do nothing without Me but everything and all things with Me. I am the one who strengthens you.

Jesus told you He did nothing on His own initiative but only what I told and showed Him. He said He said the Words and I did the Works in Him.

Know your source and abide in your source and all will work out for your good.

Adam did not recognize His source. He thought it could be him. That is pride and it is not true. And it certainly shows no grateful love. I resist the proud because I cannot flow through them to work great works and bring about great things. They stop the flow into them at the source,they will not join their spirits with Mine by taking Jesus as Lord. And if they will not let My glory flow they rely on earthly glory which man holds in importance but I hold in contempt. Why? I will not give to another My glory if they are going to use it as if it came from them and not Me. There is only one God who is the source of all good and it is not you. New age and godless philosophies try to steal My glory and put it on man. 666. All man and no God. Just in case you do not follow that, six is the number of man for I created you on the sixth day, on the eve of the beginning of Shabbat.

To know your source in humility. To love your source and work with your source is wisdom and wisdom is the principal thing.

Moses and Gideon had a similar response to Me when I told each of them they would as one man on earth deliver their nation. Both Moses and Gideon told Me they could not and would not. But I had the answer, “I will be with you.” And that was enough. If I, the source of all, am with you who can be against you? Obviously no one and nothing.

Faith that I am with you and I can do anything with you and for you is the victory that overcomes the world. And faith is of the heart. With the heart man believes and is made right, with the mouth he confessed what fills his heart and he is saved.

Put your heart right (put your inner man, your house, that is, your temple within in order) and then do the works Jesus did and greater.

Love is meek and humble of heart. Love bears one another’s burdens. Jesus told you to come to Him, cast your cares and burdens on Him, and He will refresh you. Learn from Him for He is meek (gentle) and humble of heart and your souls will find rest, for His yoke is easy and His burden light. And in seeing Him you see Me. Come humbly like a little child with great confidence to receive mercy (healing mercy, financial mercy, deliverance mercy) and find grace, the answer to all your problems giving you words and a wisdom no one can refute or contradict, just when needed. And know, as a little child does, that all you need is there with your Father who loves you and gave you His own Son, will I not also give you all things with Him? Of course, I will.

Remember this next time you take offense at another’s words to you, watch out for pride because it hides behind offense, LOVE FINDS SELF IN LOSING SELFISHNESS. Selfishness is not you. It is pride and that has been of the devil from the beginning. It caused him to fall from his source and it will do the same for you.

Your words are to NO effect until they become My Words spoken from a sincere heart of love. And that is a humble heart.

Samuel had a humble heart towards all—Eli, his parents, and then his heart heard Me. What was his answer to My voice? “Speak LORD for your servant is listening.” Not doing all the talking, not ordering Me around, but waiting for My direction and as soon as he heard it, off he went to carry it out. Like anointing David in the midst of his brothers. And he became known as a prophet and a mighty man through Israel.

Thus Samuel grew and the LORD was with him and let none of his words fail or fall to the ground unfruitful. All Israel from Dan even to Beersheba knew that Samuel was confirmed as a prophet of the LORD. And the LORD appeared again at Shiloh, because the LORD revealed Himself to Samuel at Shiloh by the Word of the LORD. 1 Samuel 3:19-21.

He went from a little boy serving all to become the judge and High Priest of My people Israel, though he did not qualify for either. I honor those who honor Me. Humility can honor others. Pride seeks honor only for itself. Do you see why humility comes before honors? Humility can handle honor because it knows where it is from.

David said, “Blessed are You, O LORD God of Israel our father, forever and ever. Yours, O LORD, is the greatness and the power and the glory and the victory and the majesty, indeed everything that is in the heavens and the earth; Yours is the dominion, O LORD, and You exalt Yourself as head over all. Both riches and honor come from You, and You rule over all, and in Your hand is power and might; and it lies in Your hand to make great and to strengthen everyone. Now therefore, our God, we thank You, and praise Your glorious name.” 1 Chronicles 29:10-13.

Mary was the most humble woman on earth and that is one of the reasons I chose her for the greatest miracle of salvation that ever took place or ever will.

And Mary said: “My soul exalts the LORD, and my spirit has rejoiced in God my Savior. For He has had regard for the humble state of His bondslave; for behold, from this time on all generations will count me blessed. For the Mighty One has done great things for me; and holy is His name.” Luke 1:46-50.

Humility knows the source of its greatness and that way never gets out of line with the vine. And what was her advice to all? “Do whatever He tells you.” And if you do, it will always end in a miracle. And that is exactly what happened when the servants at the wedding feast did what Jesus told them. The greater works that you are to do. How do you do them? By doing My Word and not merely hearing it. And that takes humility, namely, you do not know the best way on your own, you need the help of the Wonderful Counselor, the Holy Spirit. And the good news is you have Him in your heart. Turn your attention inward not outward if you want to find wisdom at its source. He will teach you all things and guide you to all truth and He will lead you in My ways which are love and truth.

I love you. Fix your heart and fix your life. How do you fix your heart? Make it just like the heart of Jesus. A humble heart of compassion. He had a servant’s heart. He came to serve, not to be served. How about you? Miracles are not to glorify you but to fill a need and show My goodness, power and presence wherever you are for I am in you! Let your light shine to show My glory to all for My glory is shining on you.
