JESUS CALLING - October 16
LOOK TO ME CONTINUALLY for help, comfort, and companionship. Because I am always by your side, the briefest glance can connect you with Me. When you look to Me for help, it flows freely from My Presence. This recognition of your need for Me, in small matters as well as in large ones, keeps you spiritually alive.
When you need comfort, I love to enfold you in My arms. I enable you not only to feel comforted but also to be a channel through whom I comfort others. Thus you are doubly blessed, because a living channel absorbs some of whatever flows through it.
My constant Companionship is the pièce de résistance: the summit of salvation blessings. No matter what losses you experience in your life, no one can take away this glorious gift.
I sought the Lord, and he answered me; He delivered me from all my fears. Those who look to Him are radiant; their faces are never covered with shame. This poor man called, and the Lord heard him; He saved him out of all his troubles.
Look to the Lord and His strength; seek His Face always.
Praise be to the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, the Father of compassion and the God of all comfort, who comforts us in all our troubles, so that we can comfort those in any trouble with the comfort we ourselves have received from God.
—2 Corinthians 1:3–4
THE IMPRISONED GODOur Lord, we praise Thee and bless Thy Name forever.
Yes! Praise. That moment, in the most difficult place, your sorrow is turned to Joy, your fret to praise, the outward circumstances change from those of disorder to order, of chaos to calm.
The beginning of all reform must be in yourselves. However restricted your circumstances, however little you may be able to remedy financial affairs, you can always turn to yourselves, and seeing something not in order there, seek to right that.
As all reform is from within out, you will always find the outward has improved too. To do this is to release the imprisoned God-Power within you.
That Power, once operative, will immediately perform miracles. Then indeed shall your mourning be turned into Joy.
Fret not thyself because of evildoers ... Trust in the Lord, and do good ... Delight thyself also in the Lord; and He shall give thee the desires of thine heart. Psalm 37:1-4

"And they went forth, and preached every where, the Lord working with them, and confirming the word with signs following. Amen."
~ Mark 16:20
This means endeavoring to suit your steps to Mine. Yet know full well, with the trust that gives security, that I ever suit My Steps to your weakness.
Divine restraint springs ever from a tender understanding. With Me beside you there is the hope, the assurance, that the day will come when My firm tread will be yours.
"Keep pace with us," the world says as it rushes by.
But there is One Who knows no feverish haste. He walks with you. Be not afraid.
~ GOD @ EVENTIDE - 10/16
OPERATE IN YOUR APPOINTED POSITION
The time I have given you is of eternal importance. Your life matters, and the most valuable asset you can give to someone or something is time. Remember, My royal one, I want all of you appointments to be in My perfect will. Not all good opportunities are from me. Keep in mind, My love, that there may be many ways to make more money, but you can never buy back time. So invest your time wisely. Think about what you are doing and how you spend your precious life. Are your days full of the things that matter most to you? Now is the time to take control of your schedule and live a life that matters. If you will sit with Me, I will help you remove the things that are holding you back from doing what's most needed in this season of your life. There is never a wrong time to do the right thing, so come and experience success with divine direction.
Your King and eternal Timekeeper
"So be on your guard, not asleep like the others. Stay alert and be clearheaded."

JESUS CALLING - October 17
ANXIETY IS A RESULT OF envisioning the future without Me. So the best defense against worry is staying in communication with Me. When you turn your thoughts toward Me, you can think much more positively. Remember to listen, as well as to speak, making your thoughts a dialogue with Me.
If you must consider upcoming events, follow these rules: 1)Do not linger in the future, because anxieties sprout up like mushrooms when you wander there. 2)Remember the promise of My continual Presence; include Me in any imagery that comes to mind. This mental discipline does not come easily, because you are accustomed to being god of your fantasies. However, the reality of My Presence with you, now and forevermore, outshines any fantasy you could ever imagine.
"Then Jesus said to His disciplies: "Therefore I tell you, do not worry about your life, what you will eat; or about your body, what you will wear. Life is more than food, and the body more than clothes. Consider the ravens: They do not sow or reap, they have no storeroom or barn; yet God feeds them. And how much more valuable you are than birds! Who of you by worrying can add a single hour to his life? Since you cannot do this very thing, why do you worry about the rest?" ~ Luke 12:22-26
"Now to Him Who is able to do immeasurably more than all we ask or imagine, according to His power that is at work within us, to Him be glory in the Church and in Christ Jesus throughout all generations, for ever and ever! Amen." ~ Ephesians 3:20-21
Turn your eyes to behold Me. Look away from sordid surroundings, from lack of beauty, from the imperfections in yourselves and those around you. Then you who have the Faith-Vision will see all you could and do desire in Me.
In your unrest behold My calm, My rest. In your impatience, My unfailing patience. In your lack and limitations, My Perfection.
Looking at Me you will grow like Me, until men say to you, too, that you have been with Jesus.
As you grow like Me you will be enabled to do the things I do, and greater works than these shall ye do because I go unto My Father.
From that place of abiding, limited by none of humanity's limitations, I can endue you with the all-conquering, all miracle working Power of your Divine Brother and Ally.
Looking unto Jesus ... who for the joy that was set before him endured the cross ... and is set down at the right hand of the throne of God. Hebrews 12:2
~ GOD CALLING 10/17
Then will you see clearly how to take out the grain of dust from your brother's eye. This is a promise.
You note the fault of another. You long to help.
You need the Spirit-inspired vision for this work. That cannot be granted until all obstruction is removed. Obstructions are caused not by the sins of others but by your own sins and imperfections.
So look within. Seek to conquer those, and so to gain the Spiritual insight which will enable you to help your brother. My Promises are always kept.
~ GOD @ EVENTIDE 10/17
PRAY WITH POWER
My powerful princess, do not waste your walk through life today. Open your spiritual eyes. Prayer is needed everywhere. Anywhere you walk today I can and will order your steps, if you will let Me. Pray while you're driving, while you're cooking, and while you're doing laundry and running errands.
Of all the weapons in the world, prayer is your most powerful. Don't let the day begin or end without letting your prayers to Me pave the way in all you do. Wherever you go, remember that part of your royal privilege is raising your voice to heaven. So hold on to the promises that are yours and pray!

JESUS CALLING - October 18
GO GENTLY THROUGH THIS DAY, keeping your eyes on Me. I will open up the way before you, as you take steps of trust along your path. Sometimes the way before you appears to be blocked. If you focus on the obstacle or search for a way around it, you will probably go off course. Instead, focus on Me, the Shepherd who is leading you along your life-journey. Before you know it, the "obstacle" will be behind you and you will hardly know how you passed through it.
That is the secret of success in My kingdom. Although you remain aware of the visible world around you, your primary awareness is of Me. When the road before you looks rocky, you can trust Me to get your through the rough patch. My Presence enables you to face each day with confidence.
"I am the good shepherd; I know My sheep and My sheep know Me - just as the Father knows Me and I know the Father - and I lay down My life for the sheep." ~ John 10:14-15
"The path of the righteous is level; O upright One, You make the way of the righteous smooth." ~ Isaiah 26:7
And they all forsook Him, and fled. -- Mark 14:50.
Down through the ages all the simple acts of steadfast devotion, of obedience in difficulty, of loving service, have been taken by Me as an atonement for the loneliness My humanity suffered by that desertion.
Yet I, who had realized to the full the longing of the Father to save, and His rejection by men, the misunderstanding of His mind and purpose, how could I think that I should not know that desertion too?
Learn, My children, from these words two lessons. Learn first that I know what loneliness, desertion, and solitude mean. Learn that every act of yours of faithfulness is a comfort to My Heart. Learn too that it was to those deserters I gave the task of bringing My Message to mankind. To those deserters, those fearful ones, I gave My Power to heal, to raise to life.
Earth's successes are not the ones I use for the great work of My Kingdom. "They all forsook Him and fled." Learn My tender understanding and pardon of human frailty. Not until man has failed has he learnt true humility. And it is only the humble who can inherit the earth.
Then said Jesus, "Father, forgive them; for they know not what they do." Luke 23:34
~ GOD CALLING 10/18
GRACE THAT TRANSFIGURES
My Grace is sufficient for you, all-satisfying.
Meditate upon this GRACE. Study what the Scriptures say of it. Learn to value it. Crave it as a gift from Me.
It can be the charm that transfigures all that without it might be sordid or dreary or monotonous. It is the leaven to the dough, the oil to the machine.
It is a priceless gift. Wait with bowed head and heart at that blessing, "The Grace of our Lord Jesus Christ."
~ GOD @ EVENTIDE 10/18
I WILL HELP YOU FIND THE WAY
Sometimes you may lose your way and feel I am far from you. That is not true, My love. Your feelings will deceive you but I never will. I am the truth that will forever help you find your way back to Me.
So whenever you feel lost, just look to Me, and I will be the one to light your way. When your world seems dark, I will be your compass and your comfort. I will carry you over the finish line of your faith when you're too weary to run. You will never be lost as long as you keep your eyes on Me. Even when you don't have the strength, I will place My hand of blessing on your head and give you the faith to go on.
Your Prince and your way
"You go before me and follow me. You place your hand of blessing on my head. Such knowledge is too wonderful for me, too great for me to understand!"

JESUS CALLING - October 19
COME TO ME with your defenses down, ready to be blessed and filled with My Presence. Relax, and feel the relief of being totally open and authentic with Me. You have nothing to hide and nothing to disclose, because I know everything about you already. You can have no other relationship like this one. Take time to savor its richness, basking in My golden Light.
One of the worst consequences of the Fall is the elaborate barriers people erect between themselves and others. Facades abound in the world, even in My Body, the church. Sometimes, church is the last place where people feel free to be themselves. They cover up with Sunday clothes and Sunday smiles. They feel relief when they leave because of the strain of false fellowship. The best antidote to this artificial atmosphere is practicing My Presence at church. Let your primary focus be communing with Me, worshiping Me, glorifying Me. Then you will be able to smile at others with My Joy and love them with My Love.
This is the message we have heard from him and declare to you: God is light; in him there is no darkness at all. If we claim to have fellowship with him yet walk in the darkness, we lie and do not live by the truth. But if we walk in the light, as he is in the light, we have fellowship with one another, and the blood of Jesus, his Son, purifies us from all sin.
—1 John 1:5–7
The Lord replied, “My Presence will go with you, and I will give you rest.”
Finally, brothers, whatever is true, whatever is noble, whatever is right, whatever is pure, whatever is lovely, whatever is admirable…think about such things…

JESUS CALLING - October 20
I AM YOUR LIVING GOD, far more abundantly alive than the most vivacious person you know. The human body is wonderfully crafted, but gravity and the inevitable effects of aging weigh it down. Even the most superb athlete cannot maintain his fitness over many decades. Lasting abundant life can be found in Me alone. Do not be anxious about the weakness of your body. Instead, view it as the prelude to My infusing energy into your being.
As you identify more and more fully with Me, My Life becomes increasingly intertwined with yours. Though the process of aging continues, inwardly you grow stronger with the passing years. Those who live close to Me develop an inner aliveness that makes them seem youthful in spite of their years. Let My Life shine through you, as you walk in the Light with Me.
"I praise You because I am fearfully and wonderfully made; Your works are wonderful, I know that full well." ~ Psalm 139:14
"To this end I labor, struggling with all His energy, which so powerfully works in me." ~ Colossians 1:29
"But if we walk in the light, as He is in the light, we have fellowship with one another, and the blood of Jesus, His Son, purifies us from all sin." ~ 1 John 1:7
NO BURDEN IRKS
Our Lord and our God. Be it done unto us according to Thy Word.
Simple acceptance of My Will is the Key to Divine Revelation. It will result in both Holiness and Happiness. The way to the Cross may be a way of sorrow, but at its foot the burdens of sin and earth-desire are rolled away.
The yoke of My acceptance of My Father's Will in all things is adjusted to My servants' shoulders, and from that moment on no burden irks or presses.
But not only in the great decisions of life accept and welcome My Will. Try to see in each interruption, each task, however small, the same fulfillment of Divine intent.
Accept it, say your thanks for it. Do so until this becomes a habit, and the resulting Joy will transfigure and transform your lives.
Walk as children of light: (For the fruit of the Spirit is in all goodness and righteousness and truth;) Proving what is acceptable unto the Lord. Ephesians 5:8-10
~ GOD CALLING 10/20
My Kingdom must be won by force, that is, by effort. How can you reconcile this with My free gift of Salvation?
My gift is free truly, and is not the reward of any merit on the part of Man. But just as God and mammon cannot both be given the overlordship in any one life, so My Kingdom, where I rule as King, cannot be inhabited by one in whom self reigns.
Therefore the violence is that of discipline and self-conquest, together with the intensity of longing for My Kingdom and tireless effort to know and do My Will.
~ GOD @ EVENTIDE 10/20
THE FRONT LINE
You are not called to follow others, My beloved Warrior. I have appointed you to lead them to Me. Life will become a great adventure if you will step out to the front line and fight for those who are too weak to fight for themselves.
Don't look back on what you have lost; look forward to the great victories that are in front of you. You don't have to hide behind your fears and insecurities any longer. I can and will turn your pain into passion to change the world around you. As you find your way to the front line, hide this truth in your heart: "This fight is not just for you; it is for all those you dearly love."
The King who fights for you
"Together they will be like mighty warriors in battle trampling their enemy into the mud of the streets. They will fight because the LORD is with them, and they will put the enemy horsemen to shame."
Oct 21 14 10:09 AM
JESUS CALLING - October 21
TO LIVE in My Presence consistently, you must expose and expel your rebellious tendencies. When something interferes with your plans or desires, you tend to resent the interference. Try to become aware of each resentment, however petty it may seem. Don't push those unpleasant feelings down; instead, let them come to the surface where you can deal with them. Ask My Spirit to increase your awareness of resentful feelings. Bring them boldly into the Light of My Presence, so that I can free you from them.
The ultimate solution to rebellious tendencies is submission to My authority over you. Intellectually you rejoice in My sovereignty, without which the world would be a terrifying place. But when My sovereign will encroaches on your little domain of control, you often react with telltale resentment.
The best response to losses or thwarted hopes is praise: The Lord gives and the Lord takes away. Blessed be the name of the Lord. Remember that all good things - your possessions, your family and friends, your health and abilities, your time - are gifts from Me. Instead of feeling entitled to all these blessings, respond to them with gratitude. Be prepared to let go of anything I take from you, but never let go of My hand!
"Search me, O God, and know my heart; test me and know my anxious thoughts. See if there is any offensive way in me, and lead me in the way everlasting." ~ Psalm 139:23-24
"Humble yourselves, therefore, under God's almighty hand, that He may lift you up in due time." ~ 1 Peter 5:6
"And he said, 'The Lord gave, and the Lord has taken away; Blessed be the name of the Lord.'" ~ Job 1:21
A LOVE FEAST
Behold, I stand at the door, and knock: if any man hear My voice, and open the door, I will come in to him, and will sup with him, and he with Me. -- Revelation 3:20.
See, My children, the knocking rests upon no merit of yours -- though it is in response to the longing of your heart for Me.
Keep, keep that listening ear. "If any man will hear My Voice." Again no merit of yours. Only the ear bent to catch My tones, and to hear the sound of My gentle knocking.
Then listen: "If any man hear My Voice, and open the door, I will come in to him, and will sup with him, and he with Me."
What a feast! You think it would have been Joy to have been present at the Marriage Feast of Cana of Galilee, or to have been one of My disciples in the Upper Room, seated with Me at the Last Supper or one of the two at Emmaus, or one of the few for whom I prepared that Lakeside feast!
But oh! at each of these feasts, God-provided and God-championed as they were, you could not have known the rapture you may know as you hear the knocking and the Voice, and, opening, bid Me welcome to My Feast.
A Feast of tenderest companionship, of Divine Sustenance, truly a Love Feast.
Incline your ear, and come unto Me; hear, and your soul shall live. Isaiah 55:3
~ GOD CALLING 10/21
The only way to eradicate evil is to absorb good. This is My story of the seven other spirits.
This story was to illustrate the vast difference between the Mosaic Law and My Law. The Pharisees and the Elder Brother were the observers of the Mosaic Law.
You have proved this in your own life. To pray that you may resist temptation and conquer evil is in itself but useless.
Evil cannot live in My Presence. Live with Me. Absorb My Life, and evil will remain without.
~ GOD @ EVENTIDE 10/21"Only in the encounter with him, the Word made flesh, do we find the fullness of self and happiness. Religion itself, without the experience of wondrous discovery of the Son of God and communion with him, who became our brother, becomes a mere set of principles that are increasingly difficult to understand, and rules that are increasingly hard to accept."
~ Pope John Paul II
WHEN FEAR LOSES IT'S GRIP
I have not given you the spirit of fear but of a sound mind. Therefore today I call you Fearless Princess, the way I called Gideon a valiant warrior when he was afraid to fight. I am the same God who gave Gideon the strength to win his battle with the enemy, and I am your God. The only time something will overtake your heart is if you take your eyes off Me.
I don't want my girl bound in terror. As long as you are walking in My power and Truth, you have nothing to be afraid of. No matter what it looks like now, victory will always be yours. So fear not, My beloved. I will never leave your side, My Princess. Know that day and night I am fighting for you.
Your Father in whom you can trust
"He will cover you with His feathers. He will shelter you with His wings. His faithful promises are your armor and protection. Do not be afraid of the terrors of the night, nor the arrow that flies in the day. Do not dread the disease that stalks in darkness, nor the disaster that strikes at midday."

JESUS CALLING - October 22
No matter what your circumstances may be, you can find Joy in My Presence. On some days Joy is generously strewn along your life-path, glistening in the sunlight. On days like that, being content is as simple as breathing the next breath or taking the next step. Other days are overcast and gloomy; you feel the strain of the journey, which seems endless. Dull gray rocks greet your gaze and cause your feet to ache. Yet Joy is still attainable. Search for it as for hidden treasure.
Begin by remembering that I have created this day; it is not a chance occurrence. Recall that I am present with you whether you sense My Presence or not. Then, start talking with Me about whatever is on your mind. Rejoice in the fact that I understand you perfectly, and I know exactly what you are experiencing. As you continue communicating with Me, your mood will gradually lighten. Awareness of My marvelous Companionship can infuse Joy into the grayest day.
Surely you have granted him eternal blessings and made him glad with the joy of your presence.
And if you look for it as for silver and search for it as for hidden treasure.
You are building up an unshakable faith. Be furnishing the quiet places of your souls now.
Fill them with all that is harmonious and good, beautiful, and enduring.
Home-build in the Spirit now, and the waiting time will be well spent.
But ye, beloved, building up yourselves on your most holy faith, praying in the Holy Ghost. Jude 1:20
~ GOD CALLING 10/22
THE PEACE OF GOD
The Peace of God lies deeper than all knowledge of earth's wisest. In that quiet realm of the Spirit, where dwell all who are controlled by My Spirit, there can all secrets be revealed, all Hidden-Kingdom-Truths be shown and learned.
Live there, and Truth deeper than all knowledge shall be revealed to you.
Their lines are gone out into all the earth -- so travels the influence, ever-widening, of those who live near to Me.
Take time to be with Me. Take time in prayer to draw others to Me.
Count all things but loss, so that you may have Me.
~ GOD @ EVENTIDE 10/22
I WILL FIGHT FOR YOU
Allow Me, your Strong Prince to fight any and all battles this life brings you. I don't want My Bride to exhaust herself fighting in her own strength. The battle you face My love, is already won! Now step behind Me and let your powerful Prince shield you from the attacks of the enemy of your soul.
Yes, I am your warrior and your protector. As long as you stand behind Me and let me fight for you, there is nothing that can or will overtake you. It is my pleasure to go to war for My beloved bride.
Your Prince and Protector
"For the LORD your God is the one who goes with you to fight for you against your enemies to give you victory."

JESUS CALLING - October 23
As you turn your attention to Me, feel the Light of My Presence shining upon you. Open your mind and heart to receive My heavenly smile of approval. Let My gold-tinged Love wash over you and soak into the depths of your being. As you are increasingly filled with My Being, you experience joyous union with Me: I in you, and you in Me. Your Joy-in-Me and My Joy-in-you become intertwined and inseparable. I suffuse your soul with Joy in My Presence; at My right hand there are pleasures forevermore.
“My prayer is not for them alone. I pray also for those who will believe in Me through their message, that all of them may be ONE, Father, just as you are in Me and I am in you. May they also be in us so that the world may believe that you have sent Me. I have given them the glory that you gave Me, that they may be ONE as we are ONE: I in them and you in Me. May they be brought to complete unity to let the world know that you sent Me and have loved them even as you have loved Me.”
You will show me the path of life; in Your presence is fullness of joy; at Your right hand are pleasures forevermore.
HILL OF SACRIFICE
You must trust to the end. You must be ready to go on trusting to the last hour.
You must know even when you cannot see . . . You must be ready, like My servant Abraham, to climb the very Hill of Sacrifice, to go to the very last moment, before you see My Deliverance.
This final test has to come to all who walk by Faith. You must rely on Me alone.
Look to no other arm, look for no other help. Trust in the Spirit Forces of the Unseen, not in those you see. Trust and fear not.
And ye shall be hated of all men for My name's sake: but he that endureth to the end shall be saved. Matthew 10:22
~ GOD CALLING 10/23
The Peace of God that passeth all understanding.
That Peace that both fills and encircles the soul that trusts in Me. It is born of a long faith-experience that is permeated through and through with the consciousness of the never-failing Love of a Father.
A Father Who supplies and protects, not alone because of His obligations of Fatherhood, but because of a longing, intense, enduring Love, that delights to protect and supply, and that cannot be denied.

There are unseen spiritual battles going on all around you. Darkness wars against My chosen ones every day. You, My Princess Warrior, must learn to fight in the power of My spirit, not your human flesh. I will give you every weapon needed to be an effective warrior.
My Holy Spirit will be your sight when you cannot see the invisible attacks fired at you. My Word is your shield of wisdom when you feel confused by the enemy. Do not fear, My beloved; you are fully equipped to fight the good fight of your faith.
I won't let My daughter live a life of defeat. I will give you the power to triumph over every trial.
Love, Your King who has already won
"For our struggle is not against flesh and blood, but against the rulers, against the authorities, against the Powers of this dark world and against the spiritual Forces of evil in the heavenly realms."

JESUS CALLING - October 24
Lie down in green pastures of Peace. Learn to unwind whenever possible, resting in the Presence of your Shepherd. This electronic age keeps My children “wired” much of the time, too tense to find Me in the midst of their moments. I built into your very being the need for rest. How twisted the world has become when people feel guilty about meeting this basic need! How much time and energy they waste by being always on the go, rather than taking time to seek My direction for their lives.
I have called you to walk with Me down paths of Peace. I want you to blaze a trail for others who desire to live in My peaceful Presence. I have chosen you less for your strengths than for your weaknesses, which amplify your need for Me. Depend on Me more and more, and I will shower Peace on all your paths.
The Lord is my shepherd, I shall not be in want. He makes me lie down in green pastures, He leads me beside quiet waters, He restores my soul. He guides me in paths of righteousness for His name’s sake.
By the seventh day God had finished the work He had been doing; so on the seventh day He rested from all His work. And God blessed the seventh day and made it holy, because on it He rested from all the work of creating that He had done.
“To shine on those living in darkness and in the shadow of death, to guide our feet into the path of peace.”
SALT OF THE EARTHOur Lord, we bless Thee and thank Thee for Thy Keeping Power.
Yes! "Kept by the Power of God" is a promise, and an assurance that holds Joy and Beauty for the believing soul.
The keeping that means security, safety, is wonderful. There is, too, the keeping that implies Life, freshness, purity, the being "kept unspotted from the world."
Then there is the keeping that I ensure to those of whom I speak as the salt of the earth.
"Ye are the salt of the earth: but if the salt have lost his savour it is henceforth good for nothing, but to be cast out, and to be trodden under foot of men."
Only in very close contact with Me is the keeping Power realized. That keeping Power which maintains the salt at its freshest and best, and also preserves from corruption that portion of the world in which I place it.
What a work! Not by activity in this case, but simply by its existing, by its quality.
I the Lord do keep it; I will water it every moment;
lest any hurt it, I will keep it night and day. Isaiah 27:3
Now to Him who is able to keep you from falling, and to make you stand in the presence of His glory blameless with great joy, to the only God our Savior, through Jesus Christ our Lord, be glory, majesty, dominion and authority, before all time and now and forever. Amen. Jude 1:24-25

I'M WITH YOU IN TIMES OF TROUBLE
You never need to doubt if I am in the midst of your circumstances. No matter how hot the fire seems, the flames will not scorch you as long as I am present. Just as I was with Shadrach, Meshach, and Abednego in their fiery test of faith, I am here now with you, ready to cool you off and keep you calm as we walk through this trial together.
You may not see it now, but you, My princess, will someday be like precious silver that has been refined by fire and purified in My presence. Remember, I did not put you in a fire to burn you out.
Trust Me with your troubled heart, and watch Me do wonders for you in the midst of the hottest flames.
Your King and your Refiner
"The LORD is my strength and shield. I trust him with all my heart. He helps me, and my heart is filled with joy. I burst out in songs of thanksgiving."

I AM GOD WITH YOU, for all time and throughout eternity. Don't let the familiarity of that concept numb its impact on your consciousness. My perpetual Presence with you can be a continual source of Joy, springing up and flowing out in streams of abundant Life. Let your mind reverberate with meanings of My Names: Jesus - the Lord saves, and Emmanuel - God with us. Strive to remain conscious of My Presence even in your busiest moments. Talk with Me about whatever delights you, whatever upsets you, whatever is on your mind. These tiny steps of daily discipline, taken one after the other, will keep you close to Me on the path of Life.
"She will give birth to a son, and you are to give Him the name of Jesus, because He will save His people from their sins." ..."The virgin will be child and will give birth to a son, and they will call Him Immanuel" - which means, "God with us." ~ Matthew 1:21; 23
"You have made known to me the paths of life; you will fill me with joy in your presence." ~ Acts 2:28
The Way of conquest over the material, the temporal, which all My disciples should know, is learned by the conquest of the physical, the self-life, in each of you.
So seek, in all things, to conquer. Take this as a very definite Guidance. Circumstances are adverse. Temporal power, as money, needs to be forthcoming.
Then seek daily more and more to obtain this self-conquest, and you are gaining surely, though you may not see it, conquest over the temporal forces and powers.
Unemployment would cease if man realized this.
If he has not the work let him make himself a conquering force, beginning with the conquest of all evil in himself, then in his home, then in all round him. He will have become a force that will be needed, and must be employed.
There are no idle hours in My Kingdom. Waiting may seem a time of inactivity, as far as the outer world is concerned, but it can, and should, be a time of great activity in the inner life, and the surrounding material plane.
And they overcame him by the blood of the Lamb, and by the word of their testimony: and they loved not their lives unto the death. Revelation 12:11
~ GOD CALLING - 10/25
FULLNESS OF JOY
There is a Joy of My Kingdom that My followers may know, and that no shadow of the world's pessimism can endanger. It resists all cramping of outward, soulless convention.
Too often My followers fail to see how full of Joy I could be. They see Me, the JESUS who beheld the city and wept over it, Who was so touched by the suffering all round Me, and they fail to realize how filled with Joy I could be at the response to My Call.
No shadow of the Cross could darken that Joy. I was as a bridegroom among the friends he had chosen to share his wedding joys.
As such I refused to consider the implied reproof of the Pharisees. We were a band filled with desire to save the world, we were full of hope and enthusiasm. Our Spirits could not be compressed into the outworn bottles of mere pharisaic convention. Ponder this and recognize your Master Who bids you Love and Laugh.

YOU ARE A NEW CREATION
You are My precious daughter, and now that My spirit lives within you, I long to teach you about who you are. Let Me start by defining what you are not, My love. You are not a slave to sin any longer. You are no longer under Satan's power. You are not even your own because I bought you with My life.
As your Father, I'm asking you to set a higher standard for yourself. Let go of the old habits that are holding you back from becoming the new you. I can't take you to the next level of your faith until you're willing to receive My instruction. Just as I asked Abraham to leave his comfort zone and go to unfamiliar territory, I am leading you away from your former life. Here I invite you to enter into My presence and receive My power to transform your life.
Your King who gives new life
"What this means is that those who become Christians become new persons. They are not the same anymore, for the old life is gone. A new life has begun!"
~2 Corinthians 5:17

JESUS CALLING - October 26
COME TO ME when you are hurting, and I will soothe your pain. Come to Me when you are joyful, and I will share your Joy, multiplying it many times over. I am All you need, just when you need it. Your deepest desires find fulfillment in Me alone.
This is the age of self-help. Bookstores abound with books about "taking care of number one," making oneself the center of all things. The main goal of these methodologies is to become self-sufficient and confident. You, however, have been called to take a "road less traveled": continual dependence on Me. True confidence comes from knowing you are complete in My Presence. Everything you need has its counterpart in Me."I am the Vine; you are the branches. If a man remains in Me and I in him, he will bear much fruit; apart from Me you can do nothing." ~ John 15:5"Perseverance must finish its work so that you may be mature and complete, not lacking anything." ~ James 1:4

DAYS OF CONQUEST
I see the loving, striving, not the defects. I see the conquest of your particular battle. I count it victory, a glad victory.
I do not compare it with the strenuous campaigns of My great Saints.
For you it is victory, and the angels rejoice, and your dear ones rejoice, as much as at any conquest noted, and rejoiced over, by Heaven.
My children, count the days of conquest as very blessed days.But thanks be to God, which giveth us the victory through our Lord Jesus Christ. 1 Corinthians 15:57
There is only one road that leads to the solving of mysteries, the road of obedience and Love.
But in perfect Love there is no curiosity, only a certainty that when the time has come all will be clear, and that until that time there is no desire to know anything that the Beloved has not chosen to reveal.
Does it matter if no mystery is made plain down here? If you have Me, then in Me you have all. Continue ye in My Love. Now to Him who is able to keep you from falling, and to make you stand in the presence of His glory blameless with
great joy, to the only God our Savior, through Jesus Christ our Lord, be glory, majesty, dominion and authority,
before all time and now and forever. Amen. Jude 1:24-25
CELEBRATE WITH ME
My Princess Bride,
I want you to celebrate life with Me. There are so many amazing things we have to look forward to, so don't let this world keep you from celebrating who you are and the wonderful things to come, My Beloved. The things that seem sorrowful now will soon be over, but the joys to come will last forever! So stop for a moment. Be thankful today. Let your heart celebrate the love relationship we have together and hear Me whisper from heaven, "I love you."
Your Prince and Joy"The sounds of joy and gladness, the voices of bride and bridegroom, and the voices of those who bring thank offerings to the house of the LORD, saying, 'Give thanks to the LORD Almighty, for the LORD is good; his love endures forever.'"

JESUS CALLING - October 28
Do not expect to be treated fairly in this life. People will say and do hurtful things to you, things that you don’t deserve. When someone mistreats you, try to view it as an opportunity to grow in grace. See how quickly you can forgive the one who has wounded you. Don’t be concerned about setting the record straight. Instead of obsessing about other people’s opinions of you, keep your focus on Me. Ultimately, it is My view of you that counts.
As you concentrate on relating to Me, remember that I have clothed you in My righteousness and holiness. I see you attired in these radiant garments, which I bought for you with My blood. This also is not fair; it is pure gift. When others treat you unfairly, remember that My ways with you are much better than fair. My ways are Peace and Love, which I have poured out into your heart by My Spirit.Bear with each other and forgive whatever grievances you may have against one another. Forgive as the Lord forgave you.
—Colossians 3:13I delight greatly in the Lord; my soul rejoices in my God. For he has clothed me with garments of salvation and arrayed me in a robe of righteousness, as a bridegroom adorns his head like a priest, and as a bride adorns herself with her jewels.
—Isaiah 61:10In him we have redemption through his blood, the forgiveness of sins, in accordance with the riches of God’s grace that he lavished on us with all wisdom and understanding.
—Ephesians 1:7–8And hope does not disappoint us, because God has poured out his love into our hearts by the Holy Spirit, whom he has given us.
GLAD SURPRISES "Our Lord, we know that all is well. We trust Thee for all. We love Thee increasingly. We bow to Thy Will."
Bow not as one who is resigned to some heavy blow about to fall or to the acceptance of some inevitable decision.
Bow as a child bows, in anticipation of a glad surprise being prepared for it by one who loves it.
Bow in such a way, just waiting to hear the loving word to raise your head, and see the glory and Joy and wonder of your surprise.
Do all things without murmurings and disputings. Philippians 2:14

There will never be a time when you will have conquered all of self. As you mount higher and higher you will see more and more clearly the errors and shortcomings of your character and life.
That is as it should be. Progress means youth.
Arrested growth means stagnation. Lack of progress and failure to conquer mean -- old age.In Eternal Life there can be no old age. Eternal Life is Youth-Life, full and abundant Life. "And this is Life Eternal that they may know Thee, the only True God, and JESUS Christ, Whom Thou hast sent."

THE POWER OF YOUR PRAYERS
My Prayer Warrior,
You have My full attention when you call My name. Don't ever underestimate the power of your prayers My princess warrior. I want you to confidently call on heaven, that you may see My mighty hand move on earth.
Your words spoken in someone's dark hour will move My Spirit to light their path. Your prayer for someone who is lonely will usher in My comfort. Your prayer for protection over someone in danger will send My angels to their aid. There is an invisible war around you and your prayers are the evidence of My power at work in the world.
One day, on the other side of eternity, you will see how your prayers affected and protected many lives while you lived.
Your God who loves when you pray
"Then if My people who are called by My name will humble themselves and pray and seek My face and turn from their wicked ways, I will hear from heaven and will forgive their sins and restore their land."
