JESUS CALLING - December 17
COME TO ME with your gaping emptiness, knowing that in Me you are complete. As you rest quietly
in My Presence, My Light within you grows brighter and brighter. Facing the emptiness inside you is
simply the prelude to being filled with My fullness. Therefore, rejoice on those days when you drag
yourself out of bed, feeling sluggish and inadequate. Tell yourself that this is a perfect day to depend
on Me in childlike trust. If you persevere in this dependence as you go through the day, you will
discover at bedtime that Joy and Peace have become your companions. You may not realize at what
point they joined you on your journey, but you will feel the beneficial effects of their presence. The
perfect end to such a day is a doxology of gratitude. I am He from whom all blessings flow!For God, who said, “Let light shine out of darkness,” made His light shine in our hearts to give us the light of the knowledge of
the glory of God in the face of Christ. ~ 2 Cor 4:6“Blessed are the poor in spirit, for theirs is the kingdom of heaven. . . .Blessed are those who hunger and thirst for righteousness, for they will be filled.” ~ Matt 5:3-6For in Christ all the fullness of the Deity lives in bodily form, and you have been given fullness in Christ, who is the head over every power and authority. ~ Col 2:9-10Let everything that has breath praise the LORD. Praise the LORD. ~ Psalm 150:6

CONDITIONS OF BLESSINGJesus, we love Thee. We see that all things are planned by Thee. We rejoice in that vision.
Rejoice in the fact that you are Mine. The privileges of the members of My Kingdom are many. When I said of My Father, “He maketh His Sun to rise on the evil and on the good, and sendeth rain on the just and on the unjust,” you will notice it was the temporal and material blessings I spoke.
I did not mean that the believer and unbeliever could be treated alike. That is not possible; I can send rain and sunshine and money and worldly blessings equally to both, but of the blessing of the Kingdom that would be impossible.
There are conditions that control the bestowal of these. My followers do not always understand this, it is necessary they should do so if they are remembering My injunction which followed — “Be ye therefore perfect even as your Father in Heaven is perfect.”
To attempt to bestow on all alike your Love and Understanding and interchange of thought would be impossible. But temporal blessings you too bestow, as does My Father. All must be done in Love and in the spirit of true forgiveness.“Ye have not chosen Me, but I have chosen you, and ordained you, that ye should go and bring forth fruit, and that your fruit should remain.”
~ John 15:16

VISIONS OF DELIGHT
Praise. Pray until you praise. That is the note upon which you have been told to end all prayer. Such marvels, truly such marvels are here.
Have no fear. Live in My Love. Draw nearer and nearer to Me. I will teach you. You shall see.
Before you could pass on to the Vision of Delights, you had to be taught the foundation Truths of honesty, trustworthiness, order, and perseverance. All is very well. Have no fear.

KNOW THE TRUTH
Let Me take you back to the beginning of our relationship. Do you remember when you asked Me to be your Lord and King? I do, because I wrote your name in My book of Life at that very moment, and you entered into a love relationship with Me. All the angels rejoiced in heaven!
Our relationship can never be destroyed by anything or anyone. Once you were lost but now you are found, and My Spirit lives in you - your are Mine! I don't want you to let life's craziness and confusion distract you from knowing Me personally. So remember the truth - stand on it, read it, pray it, obey it, and walk in the wonderful truth that you are My princess, My chosen one!
Your King and your Truth"Jesus said to the people who believed in Him, "You are truly My disciples if you keep obeying My teachings. And you will know the truth, and the truth will set you free." ~ John 8:31-32

JESUS CHRIST - December 18
WHEN YOU ARE PLAGUED by a persistent problem—one that goes on and on—view it as a rich opportunity. An ongoing problem is like a tutor who is always by your side. The learning possibilities are limited only by your willingness to be teachable. In faith, thank Me for your problem. Ask Me to open your eyes and your heart to all that I am accomplishing through this difficulty. Once you have become grateful for a problem, it loses its power to drag you down. On the contrary, your thankful attitude will lift you up into heavenly places with Me. From this perspective, your difficulty can be seen as a slight, temporary distress that is producing for you a transcendent Glory never to cease!Although the Lord gives you the bread of adversity and the water of affliction, your teachers will be hidden no more; with your own eyes you will see them. Whether you turn to the right or to the left, your ears will hear a voice behind you, saying, “This is the way; walk in it.” ~ Isaiah 30:21-21For our light, momentary affliction (this slight distress of the passing hour) is ever more and more abundantly preparing and producing and achieving for us an everlasting weight of glory [beyond all measure, excessively surpassing all comparisons and all calculations, a vast and transcendent glory and blessedness never to cease!]. ~ 2 Cor 4:17

Think your thought-way into the very heart of My Kingdom. See there the abundance of delights in my storehouse, and lay eager hands on them.
See wonders, ask wonders, bear wonders away with you. Remember this beautiful earth on which you are was once only a thought of Divine Mind. Think how from your thought one corner of it could grow and become the Garden of the Lord, the Bethany-Home for your Master, a place to which I have a right to bring My friends, My needy ones, for talk and rest with Me.“For out of the abundance of the heart the mouth speaketh. A good man…bringeth forth good things: and an evil man…bringeth forth evil things.”

Pray ever with watchful eyes on Me, your Master, your Giver, your Example. “As the eyes of servants are on the hands of their Master, so are our eyes unto the Lord our God.”
Ever look unto Me. From Me comes your help, your all. The servant watches for support, for wages, for everything. Life is for him in the hands of his master.
So look to Me for all. Intent, gazing with a look of complete faith and surrender that draws all it needs towards you. Not merely faith, but intent regard. You must watch the bestowal, so that you may bestow.

I AM YOUR PEACE
I long to give you rest for your soul and peace in your heart. I know sometimes it looks like life has no peace to offer - just one big problem after another. It's true that the world is filled with hatred, envy, and every sort of evil, so please don't be looking for peace in people or attempting to position yourself where there are no problems. The kind of peace the world tries to offer is built on false hope and man-made idols that will eventually crumble. The peace I give you will transcend any trial or tribulation that comes against you because it is supernatural. So position yourself completely in My care, and let go of all those things you cannot control. Then you will find true peace. In the middle of chaos and confusion, I will always be your safe place - a place of peace. I'm asking you, My princess, to share with others the peace I give freely to you.
Your King and your Perfect Peace"Peace I leave with you; My peace I give to you. I do not give to you as the world gives. Do not let your hearts be troubled and do not be afraid."

DO NOT BE WEIGHED DOWN by the clutter in your life: lots of little chores to do sometime, in no particular order. If you focus too much on these petty tasks, trying to get them all out of the way, you will discover that they are endless. They can eat up as much time as you devote to them.
Instead of trying to do all your chores at once, choose the ones that need to be done today. Let the rest slip into the background of your mind, so I can be in the forefront of your awareness. Remember that your ultimate goal is living close to Me, being responsive to My initiatives. I can communicate with
you most readily when your mind is uncluttered and turned toward Me. Seek My Face continually throughout this day. Let My Presence bring order to your thoughts, infusing Peace into your entire being.Commit to the LORD whatever you do, and your plans will succeed. ~ Proverbs 16:3“But seek first His kingdom and His righteousness, and all these things will be given to you as well.” ~ Matthew 6:33

PERFECT LOVEOur Lord, give us that Perfect Love of Thee that casts out all fear.
Never let yourselves fear anybody or anything. No fear of My failing you. No fear that your faith will fail you. No fear of poverty or loneliness. No fear of not knowing the way. No fear of others. No fear of their misunderstanding.
But, My children, this absolute casting out of fear is the result of a Perfect Love, a perfect Love of Me and My Father. Speak to Me about everything. Listen to Me at all times. Feel My tender nearness, substituting at once some thought of Me for the fear.
The powers of evil watch you as a besieging force would watch a guarded city — the object being always to find some weak spot, attack that, and so gain an entrance. So evil lurks around you, and seeks to surprise you in some fear.
The fear may have been but a small one, but it affords evil a weak spot of attack and entrance, and then in some rushing despondency, doubt of Me, and so many other sins. Pray, My beloved children, for that Perfect Love of Me that indeed casts out all fear.“Be sober, be vigilant; because your adversary the devil, as a roaring lion, walketh about, seeking whom he may devour: Whom resist steadfast in the faith.” 1 Peter 5:8, 9

Pray without ceasing until every thought and every wish is a prayer. This can only be so by following the plan of recollection which I have set you.

COME TO ME
I saw you before you were born. Even then you were on My mind, My daughter. I knew you were coming and I did everything possible to express My love to you and extend My invitation to you. Now that you are Mine, I want you to continue to come to Me. Come to Me when you feel strong and when you feel weary. Come to Me when you are rejoicing and when your spirit is crushed. I ask you to come not only to give you rest, but also because there is so much more I want to teach you. There is more of Me I want to reveal to you. You see, I did not create you for this fallen world. I created you for Paradise, but the curse of sin tore us apart. I've conquered sin and death for you through the death of My Son, so come to Me....and live.
Your King who is waiting"Come to Me, all of you who are weary and carry heavy burdens, and I will give you rest. Take My yoke upon you. Let Me teach you, because I am humble and gentle, and you will find rest for your souls." ~ Matt 11:28-29

JESUS CALLING - December 20
WHEN I JOINED THE RANKS of humanity, born into the humblest conditions, My Glory was hidden from all but a few people. Occasionally, streaks of Glory shone out of Me, especially when I began to do miracles. Toward the end of My life, I was taunted and tempted to display more of My awesome Power than My Father’s plan permitted. I could have called down legions of angels to rescue Me at any point. Imagine the self-control required of a martyr who could free Himself at will!
All of this was necessary to provide the relationship with Me that you now enjoy. Let your life become a praise song to Me by proclaiming My glorious Presence in the world.This, the first of His miraculous signs, Jesus performed in Cana of Galilee. He thus revealed His glory, and His disciples put their faith in Him.
~ John 2:11The people stood watching, and the rulers even sneered at Him. They said, “He saved others; let Him save Himself if He is the Christ of God, the Chosen One.” The soldiers also came up and mocked Him. They offered him wine vinegar. . . .
~ Luke 23:35-36"It is good to praise the LORD and make music to Your name, O Most High, to proclaim your love in the morning and your faithfulness at night, to the music of the ten-stringed lyre and the melody of the harp. For You make me glad by your deeds, O LORD; I sing for joy at the works of Your hands.
How great are your works, O LORD, how profound your thoughts!"
~ Psalm 92:1-5

Fight fear as you would fight a plague. Fight it in My Name. . . . Fear, even the smallest fear, is the hacking at the cords of Love that bind you to Me.
However small the impression, in time those cords will wear thin, and then one disappointment, or shock, and they snap. But for the little fears the cords of Love would have held.
Depression is a state of fear. Fight that too. Fight. Fight. Depression is the impression left by fear. Fight and conquer, and oh! for Love of Me, for the sake of My tender, never-failing Love of you, fight and love and win.“Here my voice, O God, in my prayer; preserve my life from fear of the enemy.” Psalm 64:1

This is My way and work for you, one of silent, unapplauded preparation.
Preparation not for your work but for Mine.
Your feet shod with the Gospel of Peace.
Yes, the preparation must first be made in your own heart. If unrest is there, nothing can make you well shod.

YOU HAVE GREAT TREASURES IN HEAVEN
I am so looking forward to giving you amazing treasures in heaven. I am coming soon, My love, and when I do, I will have your reward with Me. I love to bless your life here on earth, but your eyes haven't seen nor has your heart yet expxerienced the gifts of eternal joy and blessing that I have waiting for you above. For now, make every moment count, because what you do today echoes throughout eternity. Like ripples in a pond, your hard work and faithfulness to Me spread far beyond this life and into forever. Remember that no amount of money can buy you the great gifts you will open when we are finally together on the other side of eternity.

MY PLAN FOR YOUR LIFE is unfolding before you. Sometimes the road you are traveling seems blocked, or it opens up so painfully slowly that you must hold yourself back. Then, when time is right, the way before you suddenly clears—through no effort of your own. What you have longed for and worked for I present to you freely, as pure gift. You feel awed by the ease with which I operate in the world, and you glimpse My Power and My Glory.
Do not fear your weakness, for it is the stage on which My Power and Glory perform most brilliantly. As you persevere along the path I have prepared for you, depending on My strength to sustain you, expect to see miracles—and you will. Miracles are not always visible to the naked eye, but those who live by faith can see them clearly. Living by faith, rather than sight, enables you to see My glory.I have seen you in the sanctuary and beheld your power and your glory. ~ Psalm 63:2We live by faith, not by sight. ~ 2 Cor 5:7Then Jesus said, “Did I not tell you that if you believed, you would see the glory of God?” ~ John 11:40

And when things do not fall out according to your plan, then smile at Me indulgently, a smile of Love, and say, as you would to a human loved one, “Have Your way then” — knowing that My loving response will be to make that way as easy for your feet as it can be.“And He said unto him, Well, thou good servant: because thou hast been faithful in a very little, have thou authority over ten cities.” ~ Luke 19:17

COME TO ME, and rest in My Presence. As you ponder the majestic mystery of the Incarnation, relax in My everlasting arms. I am the only Person who was ever sired by the Holy Spirit. This is beyond your understanding. Instead of trying to comprehend My Incarnation intellectually, learn from the
example of the wise men. They followed the leading of a spectacular star, then fell down in humble worship when they found Me.
Praise and worship are the best responses to the wonder of My Being. Sing praises to My holy Name. Gaze at Me in silent adoration. Look for a star of guidance in your own life, and be willing to follow wherever I lead. I am the Light from on high that dawns upon you, to guide your feet into the way
of Peace.The angel answered, “The Holy Spirit will come upon you, and the power of the Most High will overshadow you. So the holy one to be born will be called the Son of God.” ~ Luke 1:35The Word became flesh and made His dwelling among us. We have seen His glory, the glory of the One and Only, who came from the Father, full of grace and truth. ~ John 1:14When they heard the king, they departed; and behold, the star which they had seen in the East went before them, till it came and stood over where the young Child was. When they saw the star, they rejoiced with exceedingly great joy. And when they had come into the house, they saw the young Child with Mary His mother, and fell down and worshiped Him. And when they had opened their treasures, they presented gifts to Him: gold, frankincense, and myrrh. ~ Matt 2:9-11

Fear no evil because I have conquered evil. It has power to hurt only those who do not place themselves under My Protection. This is not a question of feeling, it is an assured fact.
All you have to do is say with assurance that whatever it is cannot harm you, as I have conquered it. Children, in not only the big, but the little things of life, be sure of My conquering Power. Know that all is well. Be sure of it. Practice this. Learn it until it is unfailing and instinctive with you.
But practice it in the quite small things, and then you will find you will do it easily, naturally, lovingly, trustingly, in the big things of life.“Yea, though I walk through the valley of the shadow of death, I will fear no evil: for thou art with me; thy rod and thy staff they comfort me.”

I know there is always a risk when you give a piece of your heart away, but I've created you to enjoy the gift of special friendships. Choose wisely the ones that you invest your time and energy in, and also give those you love the freedom to fail. Remember that no one will love you as perfectly as I do. If you let Me take the disappointments that come with relationships, you will be free to give and receive love unconditionally. Remember, My princess, most people need love the most when they deserve it the least.

Walk with Me in the way of Peace. Shed Peace, not discord, wherever you go. But it must be My Peace.
Never a Peace that is a truce with the power of evil. Never harmony if that means your life-music being adapted to the mood and music of the world.

Sing hallelujahs to My holy Name!"For God, who said, “Let light shine out of darkness,” made his light shine in our hearts to give us the light of the knowledge of the glory of God in the face of Christ." ~ 2 Cor 4:6"Who, being in very nature God, did not consider equality with God something to be grasped, but made himself nothing, taking the very nature of a servant, being made in human likeness." ~ Phil 2:6-7"Suddenly a great company of the heavenly host appeared with the angel, praising God and saying, “Glory to God in the highest, and on earth peace to men on whom his favor rests.” ~ Luke 2:13-14"For you know the grace of our Lord Jesus Christ, that though he was rich, yet for your sakes he became poor, so that you through his poverty might become rich." ~ 2 Cor 8:9

BABE OF BETHLEHEM
Kneel before the Babe of Bethlehem. Accept the truth that the Kingdom of Heaven is for the lowly, the simple.
Bring to Me, the Christ-child, your gifts, truly the gifts of earth’s wisest.
The Gold — your money.
Frankincense — the adoration of a consecrated life.
Myrrh — your sharing in My sorrows and those of the world.“And they presented unto Him gifts: gold, frankincense and myrrh.”“Though the Lord be high, yet hath he respect unto the lowly: but the proud he knoweth afar off.” Psalm 138:6

MIRACLE OF THE AGES“And the Word was made flesh.”
Word proceeding from the Father, the thought. Dwell this evening upon this miracle of all ages. This stupendous fact of all mankind’s history:
God made man.
I came to restore to man his lost dignity. To show him that his physical and mental being could only be maintained at their intended height and power by constant communion with the Maker of man’s being.
I came, God, to live with man, to show man how to live with God.

YOU ARE CONNECTED TO ME
I am the Vine - your spiritual lifeline - and you are My beautiful branch that produces fruit for all to taste. I am in you and with you. We are eternally connected. You will never feel alone or abandoned as long as you stay connected to Me. Wherever you are I am there, ready to give you whatever you need for that moment in time. I delight in flowing through you, My precious one. I will never disconnect our relationship even if you try to run from Me. My loving arms are always open to welcome you home. Always remember that nothing you do or say will ever change My love for you. So stay close to the Vine, My love.
Your King and your Vinedresser"Yes, I am the Vine; you are the branches. Those who remain in Me, and I in them, will produce much fruit. For apart from Me you can do nothing."

JESUS CALLING - January 15
My Face is shining upon you, beaming out Peace that transcends understanding. You are surrounded by a sea of problems, but you are face to Face with Me, your Peace. As long as you focus on Me, you are safe. If you gaze too long at the myriad problems around you, you will sink under the weight of your burdens. When you start to sink, simply call out “Help me, Jesus!” and I will lift you up.
The closer you live to Me, the safer you are. Circumstances around you are undulating, and there are treacherous-looking waves in the distance. Fix your eyes on Me, the One who never changes. By the time those waves reach you, they will have shrunk to proportions of My design. I am always beside you, helping you face today’s waves. The future is a phantom, seeking to spook you. Laugh at the future! Stay close to Me.And the peace of God, which transcends all understanding, will guard your hearts and your minds in Christ Jesus.
—Philippians 4:7Then Peter got down out of the boat, walked on the water and came toward Jesus. But when he saw the wind, he was afraid and, beginning to sink, cried out, “Lord, save me!”
—Matthew 14:30Let us fix our eyes on Jesus, the author and perfecter of our faith, who for the joy set before him endured the cross, scorning its shame, and sat down at the right hand of the throne of God.

Relax, do not get tense, have no fear. All is for the best. How can you fear change when your life is hid with Me in God, who changeth not - and I am the same yesterday, today, and forever.
You must learn poise, soul-balance and poise, in a vacillating, changing world.
Claim My power. The same power with which I cast out devils is yours today. Use it. If not, I withdraw it. Use it ceaselessly.
You cannot ask too much. Never think you are too busy. As long as you get back to Me and replenish after each task no work can be too much. My Joy I give you. Live in it. Bathe your Spirit in it. Reflect it.Jesus came and spoke with them, saying, All power is given unto me in heaven and in earth. Matthew 28:18

WHERE DANGER LIES
I am beside you -- the eager Listener, so ready to hear your plea, so ready to say all that your heart needs.
Live more with Me apart, and so there will come an ever-increasing helpfulness to others.
Heart-poise, mental balance, spiritual strength, will be yours in ever more abundant measure. Never feel that you can help others unaided by Me, for therein lies danger.
Your self-importance is destructive of helpfulness, devitalizing because your strength has such limitations. Mine is limitless.
Grow more dependent upon Me, yet more assured that you can do all things through Me.

LET ME ADORN YOU
If you will allow Me to adorn you with My eternal beauty, you will sparkle like the most brilliant of diamonds. Only I can give the kind of grace that defines a true Princess.
When I dress you, your beauty will become timeless and everlasting. Today, let me place my crown of everlasting life upon your head. Rejoice my beloved, I have clothed you in righteousness and you are lovely to Me.
Your Prince who dresses you "I 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."

TRUE BEAUTYIncline your ear, and come unto Me; hear and your soul shall live.
– Isaiah 55:3
Not only live but grow in grace and power and beauty – the true Beauty, the Beauty of Holiness.
Reach ever forward after the things of My Kingdom.
In the animal world, the very form of an animal alters to enable it to reach that upon which it delights to feed.
So reaching after the treasures of My Kingdom your whole nature becomes changed; so that you can best enjoy and receive the wonders of that Kingdom.
Dwell on these truths.And let the beauty of the Lord our God be upon us;
and establish thou the work of our hands upon us

LOSE LIFE'S STING
Submit yourself entirely to My Control, My Kingship; then the sting is taken out of life’s rebuffs.
Welcome each contact as of My planning. Be ready to widen your circle of influence at My wish. Do not let age or other limitations daunt you.
Trust Me. Can I not judge your fitness for the task I give you? Have not I a Love for your acquaintances as well as for you?
Do not question My decisions. All is planned in Love for all My children. Only self-will can hinder the carrying out of the Divinely conceived plan.
Work gladly, knowing all needed wisdom shall be provided, also all needed material to do My Work.

THE ONLY WAY
Down through the ages My Power alone has kept millions of souls brave and true and strong, who else would have fallen by the way.
The Faith has been kept alive and handed down, not by the dwellers in ease, but by those who struggled and suffered and died for Me.
This life is not for the body, it is for the soul, and man too often chooses the way of life that best suits the body. Not the way that best suits the soul. And I permit only what best suits the soul.
Accept this and a wonderful molding is the result, reject it and My Purpose is frustrated, your best prayer unanswered, progress (Spiritual progress) delayed, trouble and grief stored up.
Try, each of you, to picture your soul as a third being trained by us – by you, and Me – and then you will share, and rejoice in sharing, in the discipline and training.
Stand apart from your soul with Me and welcome training – rejoice at progress.And the very God of peace sanctify you wholly;
and I pray God your whole spirit and soul and body
be preserved blameless unto the coming of
your Lord Jesus Christ.
- 1 Thessalonians 5:23
~ GOD CALLING - June 8
Count all well lost, all other work well foregone, to rest apart with Me.
From these times you go out strengthened, glad, full of Life-giving Joy — My Joy that you can never find anywhere else but with Me, the Joy-giving Christ.
Let others sense this Joy. More than any words this will show them the priceless gain of life with Me.
You shall truly find that there is no age in My Kingdom, in My Companionship.

AN OBSTACLE RACE
Rise above your fears and fancies into My Joy. It will suffice to heal all your sores and wounds. Forget all sense of failure and shortcomings, all the painful jolts and jars, and trust Me, love Me, call upon Me.
Your discipleship is an obstacle race. “So run that ye may obtain.” Obtain not only your hearts’ desires, but obtain Me – your souls’ Joy and Haven.
What would you think of the runner who threw himself on the ground in despondency at his first hurdle?
Over, and on and up. I am your Leader and your goal.But I keep under my body, and bring it into subjection;
lest that by any means, when I have preached to others,
I myself should be a castaway.
- 1 Corinthians 9:27
~ GOD CALLING - June 9
Count not these days as lost.
You have, even in this seemingly narrow life, countless opportunities for self-conquest. There is no greater task than that.
I set apart those who greatly desire to reflect Me, because there is danger that in the crowded ways, and among others, self will gain the ascendancy.
For a time, until self is recognized and conquered, you too must withdraw into the wilderness.
You are learning much, and I am your Teacher.
Come with Me into a desert place and rest a while.

MY MARK!O Lord, we thank Thee for Thy great gift of Peace.
That is the Peace, that only I can give in the midst of a restless world and surrounded by trouble and difficulty. To know that Peace is to have received the stamp of the Kingdom – the mark of the Lord Jesus Christ. My Mark.
When you have learned that Peace you are fit to judge of true values, the values of the Kingdom, and the values of all the world has to offer.
That Peace is loving faith at rest.These things I have spoken unto you, that in me ye might have peace.
In the world ye shall have tribulation: but be of good cheer;
I have overcome the world.
- John 16:33
GOD CALLING - June 11
SIMPLE OBEDIENCEDear Lord, teach me to obey Thee in all things.
You are Mine, pledged to serve Me.
Every want of yours has been anticipated. Look back and see how each failure has been due to your not having obeyed implicitly the instructions I gave you in preparation for that task or trial.
Listening to My Voice implies obedience. I am a tender Lord of Love, but I am a Captain with whose words there must be no trifling.
You are a volunteer, not conscript, but if you expect the privileges of My Service you must render Me the obedience of that service.
The way of obedience may seem hard and dreary, but the security of My ordered life the untrained soul can never know. March in step with your Captain.

HOUSE ON A ROCK
Be watchful to hear My Voice and instantly to obey. Obedience is your great sign of faith. “Why call ye Me Lord, Lord and do not the things that I say” was My word when on earth to the many who followed and heard, but did not do.
I likened the man who heard and did not do to the man who built his house on the sand. In times of storm and trouble he is overthrown, his house falls.
I likened the man who obeyed Me implicitly to the man who built his house upon a rock. In times of storm he is steadfast, immovable.
Do not feel that by this I mean only the keeping of My Commandments, even the living My Sermon on the Mount. I mean more than that to those who know Me intimately. I mean the following, in all, the Inner Guiding that I give, the little injunctions I speak to each individual soul, the wish I express – and desire to have carried out.
The secure, steadfast, immovable life of My disciples, the Rock Home, is not built at a wish, in a moment, but is laid, stone by stone, foundations, walls, roof, by the acts of obedience, the daily following out of My wishes, the loving doing of My will.
He that heareth these sayings of Mine and doeth them is like unto a man who built his house upon a rock, and the rain descended and the floods came, and the winds blew and beat upon that house and it fell not, for it was founded upon a Rock.
And it is in that Rock-Home, manmade but divinely inspired – the House of Obedience – the truest expression of a disciple’s adoration and worship – it is there I come to dwell with My loved one.
Am I not giving you work, hope? Work for the gray days? Just little plain bricks of duties done and My Wishes carried out. All strengthening you and making of your character that steadfast, immovable Christian Character of which My servant Paul spoke and which he urged his followers to have.Therefore, now amend your ways and your doings,
and obey the voice of the Lord your God.
- Jeremiah 26:13
~ GOD CALLING - June 12
Deep life-giving draughts of My Spirit are yours. Think of the aridness, the thirst, that is unquenched till the whole unsatisfied being is age-worn.
Can you help man in any better way than by proving to him that the cleansing waters of My Spirit have power to wash away all that hinders growth, and to satisfy to the full every thirst of your nature?

GOD - INSPIRED
You have entered now upon a mountain climb. Steep steps lead upward, but your power to help others will be truly marvelous.
Not alone will you arise. All towards whom you now send loving, pitying thoughts will be helped upward by you.
Looking to Me all your thoughts are God-inspired. Act on them and you will be led on. They are not your own impulses but the movement of My Spirit and, obeyed, will bring the answer to your prayers.
Love and Trust. Let no unkind thoughts of any dwell in your hearts, then I can act with all My Spirit-power, with nothing to hinder.I will lift up mine eyes until the hills,
from whence cometh my help.
- Psalm 121:1

CONQUEST OF FEAR
It is not thinking about Me, but dwelling with Me that brings perfect fearlessness.
There can be no fear where I am. Fear was conquered when I conquered all Satanic power. If all My followers knew this and affirmed it with absolute conviction, there would be no need of armed forces to combat evil.

It is not circumstances that need altering first, but yourselves, and then the conditions will naturally alter. Spare no effort to become all I would have you. Follow every leading. I am your only Guide.
Endeavor to put from you every thought of trouble. Take each day, and with no backward look, face the day’s problem with Me, and seek My Help and guidance as to what you can do.
Never look back and never leave until the morrow that on which you can get My Guidance for today.Lead me in Thy truth, and teach me; for Thou art the
God of my salvation; on Thee do I wait all the day.

Do not sorrow if, after time with Me, you cannot repeat to yourself all the lessons you have learned. Enough that you have been with Me.
Do you in need to know the history of the plant or tree to enjoy the countryside? You have inhaled pure air and been refreshed with the beauty of the landscape. Enough for the day. So, too, you have been in My Presence and found rest unto your souls.

Oh! realize My Bounty and My Goodness more and more. The wonder of being led by Me! The beauty of a guided life!
These will enter your consciousness more and more, and bring you ever more and more Joy.
You are very nearly at the point when you shall ask what you will and it shall be done unto you.
You have entered upon a wonderful era – your lives are planned and blessed by Me as never before.
You are overcoming. You are counting all things but loss if you can win Me. And the promises to him that overcometh are truly wonderful, and will always be fulfilled."When He, the Spirit of truth, is come, He will guide you into
all truth … He will show you things to come."

DOWN IN THE VALLEY
Do not let doubt or fear assail or depress you because of this time of anguish and failure-sense through which you have passed. No, this had to be.
Useful work lies ahead of you. Before the onset of so great a task My servant has usually to walk through the Valley of Humiliation, or in the wilderness.
If I, your Lord, before I began My Mission, had to have My forty days of temptation, how could you expect to go all unprepared to your great task?
You must taste anew the shame of unworthiness, of failure, and of nothingness before you go forth with Me conquering and to conquer.

SEEK ME EARLY
Walk in My Way and trust Me. No evil can touch you. I am yours as truly as you are Mine. Rest in that truth.
Rest, that is, cease all struggle. Gain a calm, strong confidence in that certainty. Do not only rest in Me when the world’s struggles prove too much and too many for you to bear or face alone. Rest in Me when you need perfect understanding, when you need the consciousness of tender, loving friendship and intercourse.
The world, my poor world, flies to Me when its difficulties are too great to be surmounted any other way, forgetting, or never realizing, that if, with the same eagerness, those hearts sought Me merely for companionship and loving intercourse, many of the difficulties would not arise.
The circumstances, the life, the character would be so altered – so purified, that those same difficulties would not exist.
Seek Me early, that is the way to find Me. Early, before I get crowded out by life’s troubles, and difficulties and pleasures.But whoso hearkeneth unto Me shall dwell safely,
and shall be quiet from fear of evil.
- Proverbs 1:33

DOWN INTO EGYPT
Down into Egypt, back into Galilee. These journeys were gladly undertaken. They meant no family upheaval, for was not the desire of that Family but to fulfill Divine Intent?
Upheavals come only when man is set on some particular way of life, and is called to forgo that.
When the fixed desire is to do the Father’s Will, then there is no real change. The leaving of home, town, country is but as the putting off a garment that has served its useful purpose.
Change is only Spiritual progress when the life is lived with Me, the Changeless One.

“Jesus.” Say My Name often. It was in My Name Peter bade the lame man walk. “In the Name of Jesus Christ of Nazareth arise and walk.”
“Jesus.” The very sounding of My Name, in Love and tenderness, drives away all evil. It is the word before which all the hosts of evil flee.
“Jesus.” My Name is the call for a life-line to rescue you from temptation.
“Jesus.” The Name banishes loneliness – dispels gloom.
“Jesus.” Summons help to conquer your faults.
I will set you on high because you have known My Name.
Yes! My Name – “Jesus.” Use it more. Use it tenderly. Use it prayerfully. Use it powerfully."And she shall bring forth a son, and thou shalt call His name
Jesus; for He shall save His people form their sins."

BIND THEIR WOUNDS
Draw from Me not only the Strength you need for yourself, but all you need for the wounded ones to whom I shall lead you. Remember no man liveth to himself. You must have Strength for others.
They will come to you in ever-increasing numbers. Will you send them empty away? Draw from Me and you will not fail them.
