God is Calling You to Himself
Christianity is not about doing things only out of tradition. In its essence, Christianity is all about knowing Jesus and having a close relationship with God the Father, the Son and Holy Spirit. Here are some excerpts from I AM Calling to lead you along that path and encourage you. Let me know what you think!
I will not leave you orphans; I will come to you. (John 14:18)
Wherever you go, I go with you. Amid the fray and the ruckus of the world, I AM by your side. There is never a reason to feel abandoned or lonely, nor is there reason to feel overwhelmed and defeated. Yet I understand your humanness and that you feel these emotions. Let them pass. Do not feed into them. Ride them like the waves. Rest in My Holy Spirit. I will give you a special surfboard to ride a tidal wave. Though not humanely possible, I can and will do it. You will ride the waves like a professional surfer, for I AM your surfboard par excellence. I steady you for the approaching waves. Sometimes, though, you may fall off Me, but I will never wash onto shore without you. I will ride the waves to find you. I AM attached to you like a child with a boogie board.We are inseparable, unless you unattach yourself from Me, but still I will chase you down like the “hound of heaven” of My reputation.
If God is for us, who can be against us? (Rom. 8:31)
It should give you great comfort to know that the God of the universe is on your side if you are on Mine. My team is the one who ultimately wins. You should have this firmly embedded in your heart and mind. Satan is doing much evil and harm, but you must know He is playing into My hands, just as he did when he thought he beat My Son.
Know that everything that comes into your life can be transformed into good. All the sorrow and suffering can be changed in the blink of an eye. Do not fear death or persecution, but only that which separates Me from you. Don’t let anything come between Me and you.That in itself is the worst kind of death. Physical death is only temporary, but spiritual fatalities are for infinity and beyond. Know that with Me on your side, you are eternally victorious!
To comfort all who mourn,To console those who mourn in Zion,To give them beauty for ashes,The oil of joy for mourning, The garment of praise for the spirit of heaviness;That they may be called trees of righteousness,The planting of the Lord, that He may be glorified. (Isa. 61:3)
The world is held captive by the lies of the enemy. He has robbed them of joy and given them false happiness. A spirit of deception has fallen on the United States and many other nations. It is the call of every believer to help set free those who have been imprisoned by Satan’s lies.This is My will for all My children. Draw them to Me, comfort and encourage them, yet always show them who I AM. Only I can give them the oil of joy. They do not know where to go on their own. Lead them to freedom in Christ, My Son.The way in which you fulfill this mission is as different as the variety of plants and trees. Each of you has been given unique talents and abilities. Some will use music, others a strong message, and still others a gentle word of encouragement or a dramatic healing. Now use these gifts to proclaim freedom to the captives.
This is a sample of three April inspirations. If you are interested in purchasing the book, you can find it on Amazon
