THEREFORE, MY BELOVED, AS YOU HAVE ALWAYS OBEYED, NOT AS IN MY PRESENCE ONLY, BUT NOW MUCH MORE IN MY ABSENCE, WORK OUT YOUR OWN SALVATION WITH FEAR AND TREMBLING
Beloved Child, work out your own salvation with serious caution, taking ownership and responsibility for your own pain and weaknesses. Do not fall into anger, jealousy, and hatred, blaming others for your own heartache, for there will come a day that you will have to give account for every one of these careless words you have spoken in anger, jealousy, and hatred.
BUT I TELL YOU THAT MEN WILL HAVE TO GIVE ACCOUNT ON THE DAY OF JUDGMENT FOR EVERY CARELESS WORD THEY HAVE SPOKEN. FOR BY YOUR WORDS YOU WILL BE ACQUITTED, AND BY YOUR WORDS YOU WILL BE CONDEMNED
Work out your own salvation, Child. I, the Everlasting Father sent My Son, Jesus, to be your Savior, but it is your responsibility to accept My Gift of Grace. I, the Perfect Father, sent the Spirit of Truth to guide you into all Truth, but it is your obligation to turn in the lies that the father-of-lies planted in your mind. I, the Most High, sent Jesus to be the Light of the World, but it is your responsibility to invite Him into your darkness. Christ’s Power is made perfect in weakness, but it is your obligation to recognize and expose your weaknesses to Him, so that Christ’s Power may rest on you.
Are you blaming others for the pain in your heart: for the abuse…for the tongue lashing…for the evil deeds? Know that it is not what people did to you or said to you that is hurting your heart, but the negative, destructive beliefs of the father-of-lies, planted in your mind, during these circumstances.
Therefore, work out your own salvation with respect to God and others. Your perpetrators are responsible for the evil deeds and words against you, but you are responsible to bring the pain these circumstances caused in your own heart, to God.
PRAYER: Most High, help me to understand that You provided, but it is my responsibility to accept Your Gifts, daily, moment-by-moment.
Maintain an Awareness
Obedient surrender consists of three steps: EMBRACING, EXPOSING, and giving permission to be EXCHANGED.
