Are you living a life of action or reaction? Are you letting your circumstances dictate your day? Are you succumb to the demands of the things that surround you?
For there is a reaction plan and a plan of action. The plan of action says you make your day what you plan. The reaction plan is living a life full of unexpectancies and emergencies.
How can you slow down if you are living in anxiety? How can you be at peace if you are living in fear? If you choose to hurry then you will waste what I died for.
Strive no longer, fret no longer, stop your stressing, for stress surrounds the world and is king over this world system. Stress and living a life of stress says you are a circumstance lover and victim; that you are swayed easily and shift your focus often.
Did I not say that a double-minded person would receive nothing at all? Just as many words spoken in prayer means nothing – so does many accomplishments done out of a hurried spirit. Did not Martha worry about many things as she strived to accomplish the preparations over the meal? – And required help from the one who was already sitting at the table with me? For am I not the meal of choice? – The bread that came from heaven? – The manna that sustains if you get it DAILY?
For am I not your daily bread? – and am I not the meal that sustains you?
Am I not your food for thought? Did I not say I have food that you know nothing about? For the Word of God sustains you. The Word of God feeds your soul. It is fertilizer for your growing heart. Didn’t you know that your heart grows? Haven’t you heard of having a change of heart? Didn’t I say what were people thinking in their hearts?
Doesn’t striving and worry stem from a heart condition? And doesn’t your heart feed and nourish the rest of your body? What are you doing and what are you doing to yourself?
Take that drive and zeal and put it towards Kingdom my friend. Because you are mine, I call you friend. And my friends commune with me daily. They sit at my table and break bread.
Re-shift your thinking and take your heart, and hand it over to the master. The creator of your heart wants to do some heart surgery. He wants to take out the things in your heart that are causing worry, stress, and anxiety, along with fear (For fear involves punishment).
He wants to take a two edged knife – which is the Word of God and cut them out, one by one. And he wants to put in place of them a new spiritual pacemaker; to pace your steps, and a new spiritual time-clock; to order your steps, and to take out the roots of anxiety – which is an intricate process, because the roots are wild and invasive to every part of the heart chamber; and replace them with rivers of peace.
And he wants to cut out the fear which causes you to live in darkness and darkens your thinking and causes you to be double-minded; and wants to replace it with loving kindness, mercy and grace.
For hasn’t the enemy of your soul caused enough damage already? Must you repeat the offense within yourself, demanding and creating havoc in your soul?
What is the purpose of being self-defeated while you accomplish the world? For didn’t I say if you accomplish the world you will lose your soul? And whatever you focus on you get? To covet not; compare yourself to no one, for each person has a different call in life and that there are no two the same?
For we are all one body together, each a part of the Body of Christ to accomplish my will and my goodness.
Do your circumstances dictate your day? Or do you have a plan of action?
For my Father created a plan of action long before I arrived on earth to accomplish it. It’s time to fulfill your heavenly Father’s plan of action. His will. His plan. And it’s time to make a plan of action, versus a reaction plan. For God does not want you to be caught off-guard, and if you keep spinning your wheels and going nowhere fast you will be caught off-guard.
So be at peace my daughter and son. Live a life of peace – and keep your joy. For strength comes from the joy of the Lord.
Are you stern and serious, or smiling? Do you add sorrow to those around you by your cutting words? For words do cut, but the Word of God is two edged – cutting more than your spirit but reveals the intent of your heart. Your heart matters. Use your life to build others up – including yourself.
Let me cut out the blockages of your heart. Allow me to be your heart surgeon. For I do not make mistakes. I can and I will. For what can be found in a man’s heart? Only God knows!
Psalm 57:7 My heart is confident in you, O God; my heart is confident. No wonder I can sing your praises!
Psalm 73:26 My flesh and my heart faileth: but God is the strength of my heart, and my portion for ever.
