Precious One, today, I want you to know that I, your Perfect Father, will purify you all the way through—spirit, soul, and body, from the inside out…BUT, YOU HAVE TO BE WILLING.
How often have I, the God of Peace, wanted to instill My Peace into your heart…but you were not willing? How often have I, the Perfect Father, offered to exchange your understanding for My Perspective…but you were not willing? How often have I, the Most High God, proposed to change your rejection into acceptance, your abandonment into belonging, your condemnation into approval, and your shame into excellence…BUT YOU WERE NOT WILLING?
O JERUSALEM, JERUSALEM, YOU WHO KILL THE PROPHETS AND STONE THOSE SENT TO YOU, HOW OFTEN I HAVE LONGED TO GATHER YOUR CHILDREN TOGETHER, AS A HEN GATHERS HER CHICKS UNDER HER WINGS, BUT YOU WERE NOT WILLING
Child, you need to understand that the father-of-lies does not want you to come to Me. He will fill you with many negative, destructive beliefs that will make your heart unwilling to receive My Perspective for your situation. He will lie to you, so you would not submit your pain to Me, lest you received My Peace, Hope, and Love. The father-of-lies already has a broad road of destruction laid out for you. As long as you are unwilling to heed My Counsel, but receive, believe, and obey his beliefs of abandonment, shame, condemnation, and rejection, he will make sure your life is destroyed. Therefore, Child…ENTER THROUGH THE NARROW GATE OF WILLINGNESS.
ENTER THROUGH THE NARROW GATE. FOR WIDE IS THE GATE AND BROAD IS THE ROAD THAT LEADS TO DESTRUCTION, AND MANY ENTER THROUGH IT
Has God perhaps sent someone into your life to help you deal with the pain of abandonment, shame, condemnation, and rejection in your heart? Were you willing to receive him or her, or did you send the person away?
If you are not willing to let God into your heart to deal with the pain that is there, I urge you to find out why. What are the negative, destructive beliefs from the father-of-lie that are causing your unwillingness? Once you have found them, lay them in front of the Lord Jesus and ask Him for His Truth. His Truth will set you free…and make you willing.
PRAYER: Whom have I, but You, O Lord. Most High God, bring me to the place where I will be willing to allow You to take the pain of abandonment, shame, condemnation, and rejection out of my heart and fill me with Your Peace, Hope, and Love.
Maintain an Awareness
How much of our misbehavior sprouts from trying to PROVE that we are acceptable, worthy, loved, and wanted, because the OLD MAN character, conveniently formed in us by the father-of-lies, christened us unacceptable, unworthy, unloved, and unwanted?
