JESUS CALLING - September 28
OPEN YOUR MIND AND HEART - your entire being - to receive My Love in full measure. So many of My children limp through their lives starved for Love, because they haven't learned the art of receiving. This is essentially an act of faith: believing that I love you with boundless, everlasting Love. The art of receiving is also a discipline: training your mind to trust Me, coming close to Me with confidence. Remember that the evil one is the father of lies. Learn to recognize his deceptive intrusions into your thoughts. One of his favorite deceptions is to undermine your confidence in My unconditional Love. Fight back against these lies! Do not let them go unchallenged. Resist the devil in My Name, and he will slink away from you. Draw near to Me, and My Presence will envelop you in Love.
"I pray that out of His glorious riches He may strengthen you with power through His Spirit in your inner being, so that Christ may dwell in your hearts through faith. And I pray that you, being rooted and established in love, may have power, together with all the saints, to grasp how wide and long and high and deep is the love of Christ." ~ Ephesians 3:16-19
"You belong to your father, the devil. and you want to carry out your father's desire....When he lies, he speaks his native language, for his is a liar and the father of lies." ~ John 8:44
"Therefore submit to God. Resist the devil and he will flee from you. Draw near to God and He will draw near to you. Cleanse your hands, you sinners; and purify your hearts, you double-minded." ~ James 4:7-8
THE SECRET PATH
Suffer it to be so now; for thus it becometh us to fulfill all righteousness. Matthew 3:15
Upon this I founded My three years' Mission on earth -- on the acceptance of the difficulty and discipline of life so as to share that human life with My followers in all the ages.
Much that you must accept in life is not to be accepted as being necessary for you personally, but accepted, as I accepted it, to set an example, to share in the sufferings and difficulties of mankind.
In this "to share" means "to save." And there, too, for you ... the same must be true as was so true of Me. "He saved others. Himself He cannot save."
Beloved, you are called to save and share in a very special way. The way of sorrows if walked with Me, the Man of Sorrows, is a path kept sacred and secret for My nearest and dearest, those whose one desire is to do all for Me, to sacrifice all for Me, to count, as My servant Paul did, "all things but loss so that they might gain Me."
But, dreary as that Path must look to those who view if only from afar, it has tender lights and restful shades that no other walk in life can give.
I am not come to destroy, but to fulfill. For verily I say unto you, Till heaven and earth pass, one jot or one tittle shall in no wise pass form the law, till all be fulfilled. Matthew 5:17,18

YOUR ONLY WAY
There is a stage in Christian development at which My follower should have passed beyond that of general service and conformity to the rules I laid down for My disciples.
When he should be seeking to serve in some special way planned for that soul, and in the service that soul was destined for, which none other can so adequately do.
Think, the Salvation of My world, all planned, even to the minutest detail, but that work is not done through neglect, through failure, through indifference.
My way for you is not a path of general righteousness and obedience, but the actual road mapped out for you, in which you can best help My needy world.

JESUS CALLING - September 30
I AM PERPETUALLY WITH YOU, taking care of you. That is the most important fact of your existence. I am not limited by time or space; My Presence with you is a forever-promise. You need not fear the future, for I am already there. When you make that quantum leap into eternity, you will find Me awaiting you in heaven. Your future is in My hands; I release it to you day by day, moment by moment. Therefore, do not worry about tormorrow.
I want you to live this day abundantly, seeing all there is to see, doing all there is to do. Don't be distracted by future concerns. Leave them to Me! Each day of life is a glorious gift, but so few people know how to live within the confines of today. Much of their energy for abundant living spills over the time line into tomorrow's worries or past regrets. Their remaining energy is sufficient only for limping through the day, not for living it to the full. I am training you to keep your focus on My Presence in the present. This is how to receive abundant Life, which flows freely from My throne of grace.
"Therefore do not worry about tomorrow, for tomorrow will worry about itself. Each day has enough trouble of its own." ~ Matthew 6:34
"The thief comes only to steal and kill and destroy; I have come that they may have life, and have it to the full." ~ John 10:10
"Now listen, you who say, "Today or tomorrow we will go to this or that city, spend a year there, carry on business and make money." Why, you do not even know what will happen tomorrow. What is your life? You are a mist that appears for a little while and then vanishes. Instead, you ought to say, "If it is the Lord's will, we will live and do this or that." ~ James 4:13-15
As thy days so shall thy strength be.
I have promised that for every day you live, the strength shall be given you. Do not fear.
Face each difficulty sure that the wisdom and strength will be given you for it. Claim it.
Rely on Me to keep My Promise about this. In My Universe, for every task I give one of My children, there is set aside all that is necessary for its performance. So why fear? So why doubt?
So teach us to number our days, that we may apply our hearts into wisdom. Psalm 90:12
~ GOD CALLING 9/30
THE FUTURE ALL UNKNOWN
My Word shall be a lamp unto your feet, and a light unto your path. No difficulty need appall you. You are shown in all things what to do, but remember that the light must go with you. It is to warn, comfort, and cheer, not to reveal the future.
My servants do not need to know that. The true child-spirit rejoices in the present, and has no fears, no thought beyond it. So must you live.
If I, your Lord, accompany you, shedding My radiance all round you, the future must always be dark, because as far as your acceptance of revelation and your present development are concerned, I am not THERE.
But as the future of today becomes the present of tomorrow, then the same light and Guidance and Miracle-working Power will be yours. Rejoice evermore.
~ GOD @ EVENTIDE 9/30
GIVE ME YOUR PLANS
I know you have an idea in your head on how everything should unfold in your life. Even today you have an agenda. Because I love you, I need you to give Me back all your plans for today and for all your tomorrows.
If you let Me have your day, I can then intervene with something special. My intervention will give you more joy in your journey than your good intentions. I know all that your heart longs for, and I want to do more for you than you could ever do for yourself. So give Me a chance to change your agenda from ordinary to extraordinary, because that's the kind of life I've destined you to live, My beloved.
Your King and your Life Planner

JESUS CALLING - October 2
NEVER TAKE FOR GRANTED My intimate nearness. Marvel at the wonder of My continual Presence with you. Even the most ardent human lover cannot be with you always. Nor can another person know the intimacies of your heart, mind and spirit. I know everything about you - even to the number of hairs on your head. You don't need to work at revealing yourself to Me.
Many people spend a lifetime or a small fortune searching for someone who understands them. Yet I am freely available to all who call upon My Name, who open their hearts to receive Me as Savior. This simple act of faith is the beginning of a lifelong love story. I, the Lover of your soul, understand you perfectly and love you eternally.
"Indeed, the very hairs of your head are all numbered. Don't be afraid; you are worth more than many sparrows." ~ Luke 12?7
"Yet to all who received Him, to those who believed in His Name, He gave the right to become children of God." ~ John 1:12
"Everyone who calls on the Name of the Lord will be saved." ~ Romans 10:13Be Not Afraid
- St. Louis Jesuits & Bob Dufford, S.J.
You shall cross the barren desert,
but you shall not die of thirst.
You shall wander far in safety,
though you do not know the way.
You shall speak your words to foreign men,
and and they will understand,
You shall see the face of God and live.
Be not afraid,
I go before you always,
Come follow Me,
and I shall give you rest.
If you pass through raging waters
in the sea, you shall not drown.
If you walk amidst the burning flames,
you shall not be harmed.
If you stand before the pow'r of hell
and death is at your side,
know that I am with you, through it all
Be not afraid,
I go before you always,
Come follow Me,
and I shall give you rest.
Blessed are your poor,
for the Kingdom shall be theirs.
Blest are you that weep and mourn,
for one day you shall laugh.
And if wicked men insult and hate you, all because of Me,
blessed, blessed are you!
Be not afraid,
I go before you always,
Come follow Me,
and I shall give you rest.
How easy it is to lead and guide when you are responsive to My wish! The hurts of life come only when you, or those about whom you care, endeavor to go your, or their, own way and resist the pressure of My Hand.
But in willing My Will there must be a gladness. Delight to do that Will.
"The meek shall inherit the earth," I said. That is, control others, and the material forces of the earth.
But this exultant state of possession is the result of a yielded will. That was My meaning of the word meek.
So live. So yield. So conquer.
I can of mine own self do nothing: as I hear, I judge: and my judgment is just; because I seek not mine own will, but the will of the Father which hath sent me. John 5:30
~ GOD CALLING 10/02
NO GREATER JOY
On earth, or even in Heaven, there can be no greater joy than realizing that My Will is being accomplished in the little as well as in the big things.
Indeed, it can be your "meat" as I said it was Mine. It is the very sustenance of body, mind, and spirit, that Trinity of being, symbolized in the Temple in the Outer Court, the Holy Place, and then in the very Holy of Holies, where man speaks with God and dwells with Him.
Into that Holy of Holies there can be no entrance except to sacrifice, to bring an offering of the physical and mental being in Spirit to identify the whole with that Supreme Sacrifice I offered for My World.
GROW WHERE YOU ARE PLANTED
I know you sometimes wonder if your life has any real worth. But I assure you that I can use you to bless those around you. Just as I used Paul in prison, I will use you wherever you are or whatever circumstance you are in. Let Me water you with My holy Word, and you will begin to bloom wherever you are planted.
Come to Me in prayer and let Me empower you with My Spirit. Even if you can't see the harvest of your hard work now, I promise that others will one day look back at the time you were in their lives and remember your acts of kindness, words of wisdom, and extravagant love for them.
So for now, My precious flower, let Me help you blossom in a world that is searching for the meaning of life.

That's a great verse
to those who understand scripture is an final authority in matters of faith by actually getting under it,
as a doer of the Word. and not just a hearer. The same authority commands us we are to know no man
after the outward appearance which would include Christ whom we know no more
after the flesh forever more. How can we seek after Him who has no form to
behold? Can Christians in "will worship"
create and image in their fleshly mind and call that seeking after God?
henceforth know we no man after the flesh: yea, though we have known Christ
after the flesh, yet now henceforth “know we him” no more. 2Co 5:16
it is written, There is none righteous, no, not one:There is none that
understandeth, there is none that seeketh after God. Rom 3:10

JESUS CALLING - October 3
WHEN MANY THINGS SEEM to be going wrong, trust Me. When your life feels increasingly out of control, thank Me. These are supernatural responses, and they can lift you above your circumstances. If you do what comes naturally in the face of difficulties, you may fall prey to negativism. Even a few complaints can set you on a path that is a downward spiral, by darkening your perspective and mind-set. With this attitude controlling you, complaints flow more and more readily from your mouth. Each one moves you steadily down the slippery spiral. The lower you go, the faster you slide; but it is still possible to apply the brakes. Cry out to Me in My Name! Affirm your trust in Me, regardless of how you feel. Thank Me for everything, though this seems unnatural - even irrational. Gradually you will begin to ascend, recovering your lost ground.
When you are back on ground level, you can face your circumstances from a humble perspective. If you choose supernatural responses this time - trusting and thanking Me - you will experience My unfathomable Peace.
"But I trust in Your unfailing love; my heart rejoices in Your salvation." ~ Psalm 13:5
"Always giving thought to God the Father for everything, in the name of our Lord Jesus Christ." ~ Ephesians 5:20
And the work of righteousness shall be peace; and the effect of righteousness quietness and assurance for ever. -- Isaiah 32:17.
Be still and know that I am God. Only when a soul attains this calm can there be true work done, and mind and soul and body be strong to conquer and to bear.
The Peace is the work of righteousness -- living the right life, living with Me. Quietness and assurance follow.
Assurance is the calm born of a deep certainty in Me, in My Promise, in My Power to save and keep. Gain this calm, and at all costs keep this calm. Rest in Me. Live in Me. Calm, quiet, assured -- at Peace.
Elect according to the foreknowledge of God the Father, through sanctification of the Spirit, ... Grace unto you, and peace, be multiplied. 1 Peter 1:2

CONSTANT COMPANION"Not unto us, O Lord . . . but unto Thy Name be Glory."
My Name. I AM. Existent before all Worlds, changeless through Eternity, changeless in Time.
All I have ever been through the ages I AM.
All that you ever crave I may be to you -- I AM.
In a changing world you need to dwell much upon Me, your Master, the Jesus Christ of whom is what was said --
"The same yesterday, today and forever."
Then it follows that with you today is The Lord of Creation, Jesus of Nazareth, and that Christ of the Cross, the Risen Savior, the Ascended Lord. What a Companionship for the uncertain ways of a changing world.
~ GOD @ EVENTIDE 10/3
HEAR MY VOICE
I am never too busy for you and long to be closer to you, My beloved. If you will turn off the things around you that drown Me out of your daily life, you will begin to hear Me in your spirit. When you don't know where to go, you will hear Me give you divine direction. When you are in need of a friend, you will hear Me whisper, "I am here." When you need comfort, you will hear Me call to you, "Come to Me."
Don't let your agenda distract you from time with Me. Quiet your spirit and know that I am your heavenly Father and you are My precious daughter. I love when you crave time to be still with Me.
Your King and the Voice of heaven
"My sheep listen to My voice;
I know them, and they follow Me."
