Calling; chosen to be changed, challenged and charged to fulfill vision. Therefore come and follow hard after your Master as the dear pants after the water brooks; as a dry land is thirsty for water, as the flower and desert need the rain.
I will pour water on him that is thirsty. If you seek me, you will find me if you seek me with all your heart. I desire to be intimate with you for you to ‘into me see’ and I ‘into you see’. You in Me and I in you.
Surrender all to Me. That is how to be free. Be a prisoner to Me. That is how to find your freedom. Sit at My feet and feed from My hand, like Mary. Desire of My food more than your daily natural food, like Job. Be led of My Spirit into the desert to seek My face. For later, you will come back in the power of My Spirit to fulfill your vision and your commission. Pay the price and you can be sure of the prize.
Be committed to a Christ-like Character and let Me mold you and make you into what I want to see. Let Me refine you in My furnace, burning off the dross to bring out the beauty of the gold in you. Take your hands off my pruning knife! It is for your good and for My glory. I desire that you bear much fruit, so the leaves must go! I want your light to so shine that men will see your good works and glorify My Father in heaven. I want your preservative quality to be ever-present and strongly present.
Have I not given you My Spirit, to comfort you and stand by you? Is the Counselor not there to counsel you and give you wisdom, understanding, insight and illumination and revelation? Strength is available from the Strengthener- yours from asking. Help is at hand from the Helper- at your beck and call. There is water everywhere, so don’t go thirsty.
Abide in me and let my word abide in you. Learn of me and lean on me and not on your own understanding. Cast down every imagination that contradicts my word and will for you.
I have paid the price for you and deposited in your jar of clay, hidden treasures. Fan the fires ablaze and be a bonfire to the glory of God.
So, go, grow and glow in My grace. Go from strength to strength and from glory to glory; from faith to faith.
