Luke 10:41-42 (TPT) The Lord answered her, “Martha, my beloved Martha. Why are you upset and troubled, pulled away by all these many distractions? Are they really that important? Mary has discovered the one thing most important by choosing to sit at my feet. She is undistracted, and I won’t take this privilege from her.”
My Bride, do not be troubled by the cares of this world. And resist the urge to fret over the actions (or inaction) of your brethren. For I am calling all to arise, trim wicks, and burn brightly with My love. If you expend your energy immersed in worry and fear, your time will be spent striving and accomplishing little. And if you are primarily concerned with judging the behavior of others, you risk falling asleep and becoming lax in your own spiritual growth. I desire that you would simply rest in Me and flourish. Abide in Me, and bear the fruit of My Spirit for all to see.
You will accomplish more for My Kingdom when your focus is to rest at My feet and eat from My hand. Allow Me to impart all that you need, and empower you for every good work. As you yield to the work of My Spirit in your heart, you enable Me to flow through you in greater degrees. Let your singular focus be about how you can create more room for My presence in your heart; as a result, you will automatically make room for My Kingdom upon the earth. Less of you, more of Me, beloved. And as you open the door to more of Me in your life, the bright light of My love will impact the very people who you are interceding for.
Remember, it is My voice that awakens love in the hearts of My people. It is I who atones and brings righteousness into the earth. I shout from heaven with the voice of a trumpet, calling all to cast off the old man and awaken to the new. Be diligent in casting off the weight of the old man, which seeks to obscure your perception of who you are in Me. Be transformed by My voice, and renewed by My love. Open your heart to Me, and watch as My words tumble forth from your lips. Awaken, arise, and respond to My call.
Ephesians 4:22-24 (TPT) And he has taught you to let go of the lifestyle of the ancient man, the old self – life, which was corrupted by sinful and deceitful desires that spring from delusions. Now it’s time to be made new by every revelation that’s been given to you. And to be transformed as you embrace the glorious Christ-within as your new life and live in union with him! For God has re-created you all over again in his perfect righteousness, and you now belong to him in the realm of true holiness.
