For you to thrive in my Kingdom, I need your heart – all of your heart – your whole heart. I will not accept anything less than all the depths of your heart.
I require all of your heart that I can work through you and that you can in turn know my own heart. I loved you from the beginning – loved you enough to die for you to redeem you and restore you to the original position I gave to you as stewards of my creation.
I am your King and your Father and must be your first love.
You must empty yourself before me, empty yourself of all of your doubts, and present to me your secret thoughts, your hopes, your dreams, your desires and even your fears. You must make yourself totally vulnerable before me. When you become transparent before me, then I can fully clothe you in my righteousness and increase your faith.
I will not accept anything between you and me. You cannot allow anything to come between us or you will jeopardize our relationship and rob yourself of the blessings I want to give to you.
I know and I understand that you will feel weak and helpless when you empty yourself completely before me. But that is how it was in the beginning before sin, and this is how it was meant to be. There should be no darkness in you, nothing that should cover you or make you want to hide yourself from me. You should be before me naked and helpless and weak because therein lies your strength. My strength can only be perfected in your weakness. Your dependence should not be on people or your gift or talents or money. Your dependence must be solely on me alone.
I must be your strength, your hope, your joy and your fulfilment. All these must come through me alone. You must look to me your King for all that makes life fulfilling. I am the giver of all good gifts and the source of all your blessing. But you must look to me the source and not the manifestation of the blessing.
I cannot help but bless you when you make yourself empty and vulnerable before me. Then you really become my child. Then I will look after you and care for you. Then you will trample upon the enemy who comes across your way to do you harm; then no plan of the enemy will thwart your progress; then you will defy every work of darkness as your foe scatters before you. Then no weapon formed against you shall prosper. Then I will open doors never imagined – doors you never conceived in your wildest imagination. Then you will release the pent-up showers of blessing that have been waiting to fall upon you to fulfill your heart’s desires.
Then you will begin to know me in all of my fullness – only then when you become a child before me. When you become a child totally dependent and reliant upon me, you will see me work.
Remember I said unless you become like a little child you cannot truly become a part of my kingdom.
So now to see your life change around , to see it completely transformed, just trust in me for everything- for all you need. Just trust in me. Leave it all to me. Leave everything to me.
