In all your ways be mindful of Him, and He will make straight your paths. Proverbs 3:6.

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

I have made you a new creation in Christ, that means I took out your stony heart that did not hear Me and did not allow My Word to plant in it and gave you a living heart that hears and in which My Word can plant.

You visit the earth and cause it to overflow; You greatly enrich it; the stream of God is full of water; You prepare their grain, for thus You prepare the earth. You water its furrows abundantly, You settle its ridges, You soften it with showers, You bless its growth. You have crowned the year with Your bounty. Psalm 65:9-11.

Your heart now is good soil for bearing much fruit.

But the seed in the good soil, these are the ones who have heard the Word in an honest and good heart, and hold it fast, and bear fruit with steadfast perseverance. Luke 8:15.

When I told Solomon he could ask Me for anything He desired and I would give it to him, he asked Me for a hearing heart. He wanted to be able to know My wisdom in his heart to guide him on right paths in governing My people and his life. And he wrote the proverb: Trust in the LORD with all your heart and do not lean on your own understanding. In all your ways be mindful of (acknowledge, know) Him, and He will make straight your paths. Proverbs 3:6.

I would like you to look at that verse in the language in which it was originally written, and that is Hebrew. Which is a language of the spirit and not of the flesh. It is full of teachings and revelation right in the letters themselves, let alone whole words, each with a root in it.

The word translated “mindful” is the Hebrew word “yada (יָדַע),” which means to know, to deeply experience and intimately know someone or something. Jesus told you that eternal life is to know Me the one true God and the One I sent, Jesus Christ, your Lord. It is intimate, inside knowledge, not superficial and not without understanding. It is comprehension and understanding in a personal way where you understand what the other is about. It means you know Me and you know My ways and you keep yourself within those parameters and I make all things work together for you for good. I do not take you on detours but straight to your destiny, straight to the solution, straight to the source. It is not complaining and wandering in the wilderness just wasting time until you die. That is for those that do not know My ways and cannot hear My voice. Not because I am not speaking, but because they are not listening. A closed heart will never hear.

He entered again into a synagogue; and a man was there whose hand was withered. They were watching Him to see if He would heal him on the Sabbath, so that they might accuse Him. He said to the man with the withered hand, “Get up and come forward!” And He said to them, “Is it lawful to do good or to do harm on the Sabbath, to save a life or to kill?” But they kept silent. After looking around at them with anger, grieved at their hardness of heart, He said to the man, “Stretch out your hand.” And he stretched it out, and his hand was restored. The Pharisees went out and immediately began conspiring with the Herodians against Him, as to how they might destroy Him. Mark 3:1-6.

Unbelief and hardness of heart go together. Anyone who hardens their heart against Me doubts Me. He has no faith in Me or My Word. A hard heart scoffs at Me. Doubts and questions Me and reaps no benefit or harvest. My Son wanted to stretch out His hand and heal everyone but in Nazareth, though He had the healing power in Him, He could work no miracle there because of their hardened hearts of unbelief. If you will note, not one Pharisee or Sadducee got healed in the years Jesus was ministering and yet thousands of people were healed. They just watched and found fault if He healed on Shabbat or His disciples did not follow their hand washing rituals.

But it should not be like that with you. And I will tell you, it is not. For if you have taken Jesus as your Lord and received Him as such you have a new heart and a new Spirit in you. I have made you new and within you is My dwelling place, and it is magnificent. But you can resist Me and reject My direction if you do not know how to hear and yield to My Spirit in you.

When I have something for you to do I let you know. Pay attention constantly. If you notice, My disciple Ananias was ready to converse with Me about going to baptize and lay his hands on Paul, then Saul, though he knew that he had come to arrest Christians, of which Ananias was one. But when I directed him and told him it was My Will, he went immediately and he was instrumental in bringing about the great ministry of My apostle Paul. You have assignments and works to do. Be ready to hear. Do not be too busy.

Pray without ceasing means to pay attention constantly. It means to be mindful of Me in all your ways so I can direct your paths. It means to not just take off in any direction that you have decided upon without consulting Me. There is a way that looks right to a man that ends in death.

When Joshua and the Israelites entered the promised land, they were constantly mindful of Me because their success in conquest depended entirely on Me. However, when the Gibeonites came and flattered them falsely presenting themselves as of a far distant nation wishing to make covenant for protection with My people, Joshua and the elders believed their flattery and did not ask Me about it. They ended up making covenant with a group of inhabitants of the promised land that I had given them to conquer. But I honored that Covenant and so did the Gibeonites and they served Israel to this day. So even when you do not listen and go off and do something that is not My Will, when you repent and return I can restore and make it all work together for good. But the key is to repent, and that denotes a heart that is soft and alive. Hardened hearts do not repent.

Life becomes a true joy and adventure when you learn to listen to My voice above all the other thoughts and voices that are vying for your attention. So what do I tell you to do: “My child, pay attention to MY WORDS. Do not let them depart from your heart. Give My Words place in you and give the devil no place. That is what Jesus did, though He was tempted in every way you are, and that is why He never sinned.

Keep your inner calm. Do not let the storms and trials of life ever penetrate into your inner sanctuary. Keep that inner quietness of rest in Me to that you will hear. Remain in My love by remaining in the knowledge of who I AM.

When I give you something to do, first discern if that is Me, ask for two witnesses in Scripture if you are unsure. If you are sure, however, which often you will be, run with it. Do not miss a visitation. By not receiving My Word in Jesus, the scribes and Pharisees missed their visitation that they had been longing for and it deprived them of a glorious future. Hard hearts seek destruction of others that they oppose but they end up destroying themselves. But it could have all changed and many of them it later did, for many of the priests who had opposed Jesus later entered the early Christian community, if they just did one thing: Repent. Yes, I have given you an avenue to restore all you lost in hardness of heart and unbelief: repentance. Jesus told you, “The Kingdom of Heaven is at hand, REPENT, and believe in the good news.” They had to change their outlook, their mindset, their thoughts and their actions to agree with Mine. And when you repent, all you have been longing for and all you lost floods back in to fill you up to overflow. Blessings you cannot contain. When Job repented of his hardened heart against Me, I was able to restore him and give him twice as much as he had before, and he had been the richest man in the east. Paul repented of arresting and having Christians killed and he became the man that brought the most people in to be Christians of any apostle or disciple at that time.

I have sent you on a mission, the same one Jesus was on—to seek out and save the lost and to undo the work of the devil in people’s lives. And I am there with you know to show you how to be a witness for Me, for I am faithful and true, to walk together with you. Your mission, no matter what walk of life, is to set people free, to show them Me, and to awaken them to their destiny.

Say “NO” to false doctrines, “NO” to false teaching, “NO” to wrong thinking and “NO” to wrong speaking, “NO” to the frowns, “NO” to the fears, “NO” to the wasted and unfulfilled years. Say “NO” to the things that bring death and not life. Say “NO” to the things that cause envy and strife. Say “NO” to everything that is not of love and say “NO” to everything that is not from above.

Do not be deceived, my beloved brethren. 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 1:16-17.

I love you. Your best adventures are the ones I tell you to undertake because you are sure then without wavering and no one can sway you off your path. Do not lean on the arm of flesh but on the arm of the Spirit. Rest in My everlasting arms and we can go on eagle’s wings to My holy mountain where I make you joyful in My house of prayer. If today you hear My voice, harden not your heart. You can lose so much by not listening. Think if Philip had refused to go to the desert road of Judea because he was having success with the people in the city of Samaria? But he did not refuse, his heart was wide open, when I said go, he went and there he had the most amazing encounter with the Ethiopian official, who then went back and got that country born again. You never know how far reaching your witness to one soul will be. Harden not your heart. Some of you are just a little to busy about your own affairs and not Mine. I will redeem your time. Listen, I am speaking.

My son, give attention to my words; incline your ear to my sayings. Do not let them depart from your sight; keep them in the midst of your heart. For they are life to those who find them and health to all their body. Watch over your heart with all diligence, for from it flow the springs of life. Put away from you a deceitful mouth and put devious speech far from you. Let your eyes look directly ahead and let your gaze be fixed straight in front of you. Watch the path of your feet and all your ways will be established. Do not turn to the right nor to the left; turn your foot from evil. Proverbs 4:20-27.
