Be yourself! Be who you are without considering things external. Be free in your heart where you are essentially connected to Me; not religiously, but in reality. To do this, you must stay in the present moment of spiritual truth and vitality. This is a place of abiding in faith and peace. Then, when that connection is interrupted, you can examine the cause and re position yourself to maintain that spiritual flow, says the Lord. Refuse to allow fear, unbelief, worry or condemnation to break your connection. Relationship with Me is not a distant reality, but it is here and now. John 15:4 Abide in Me, and I in you. As the branch cannot bear fruit of itself, unless it abides in the vine, neither can you, unless you abide in Me.
You are in a time of recovering that which has been taken by the enemy. If you will be alert and be willing to follow My leading, I will restore all that is necessary for your spiritual well-being. However, there are still things that are better left alone, and I will give you the proper discernment to know the difference. Come to Me in faith with your request, says the Lord, and I will open what no man can shut, and I will shut what no man can open. Revelation 3:8 I know your works. See, I have set before you an open door, and no one can shut it; for you have a little strength, have kept My word, and have not denied My name.
Do not be afraid! I am at work in your life to bring you to your appointed destiny. Even when you get off track, you can trust Me to bring you back. Set your heart to pursue Me, and set your will to never deliberately go back to the world. You did not choose Me; I chose you to establish My kingdom where you are on the earth. Establish My kingdom in your heart, in your relationships, where you live, where you work and where you worship. That is My will and purpose for you, says the Lord. 1 Peter 2:9 But you are a chosen generation, a royal priesthood, a holy nation, His own special people, that you may proclaim the praises of Him who called you out of darkness into His marvelous light.
