Sever The Past And Press On

Word of the Day

Beloved, seeing you are born for such a time as “THIS”, one thing is for sure, you cannot live in the present and hold on to the past. You must cut every tendril and pull up every root. And the truth of My love for you regardless what you have done or experienced and the revelation thereof will enable you to let go. Letting go of your own inadequacies and being patient with your own self will translate to others and how you treat them.

Often others are treated unfairly or in an unloving way because of the need to justify self, because of selfishness or unwillingness to give what it takes, or because of the refusal to look at one’s own weaknesses out of fear of rejection…believing consciously or unconsciously that somehow the belittlement of another makes one look better. Beloved, it is so important to know how much I love you and then you will in turn love yourself and others. This is essential to shifting into manifestation of purpose.

Therefore, I am releasing an impartation of revelation to your heart in order for you to comprehend and understand how much I love you; then, you will love you as the valuable asset to the Kingdom you are. Remember, no matter how much progress you have made in this area there is always room for more.

Love is not based on anything you are, have done or have not done. This is a revelation you need…a revelation of the power of the Cross and what it accomplished and made way for down to the most intimate details of your life.

Ask yourself, “What am I most afraid of?” When you get the answer you will find a place where love is not perfected. Be rooted, grounded and perfected in love. And remember I do not give stones when My children ask for bread. Throw out the old bread and receive fresh bread straight from the manna oven of My heart…

That if possible I may attain to the [spiritual and moral] resurrection [that lifts me] out from among the dead [even while in the body].Not that I have now attained [this ideal], or have already been made perfect, but I press on to lay hold of (grasp) and make my own, that for which Christ Jesus (the Messiah) has laid hold of me and made me His own. I do not consider, brethren, that I have captured and made it my own [yet]; but one thing I do [it is my one aspiration]: forgetting what lies behind and straining forward to what lies ahead. (Philippians 3:11-13 Amplified)

Prayer

Lord, so many times I have found myself responding to others based on how I feel about myself at any given time. This happens when I have not been with You or in Your Word. How I feel about myself so often reflects on how I am with those I love…those I work with or go to church with. Help me to be aware when I am in a negative thought pattern which leads to being critical of others. I do not want to justify my actions and behaviors. Instead, I want to be free to love not only others but to love my own self.

Holy Spirit I invite You to come and do a complete work in my heart. Show me any hidden thing having the power to affect my life in negative or critical ways. Expose any root which holds me in patterns of weakness or wrong behavior. Therefore, today I receive Your impartation and revelation of love in its fullest degree and capacity. I receive love regardless of what I have done or not done. I receive it because You freely give it to me without measure or condition. It is Your love which motivates me to change…not rules and regulations. I will never be forsaken nor will I be begging for bread when it comes to You. Root out all fear and fill me with love, power and a sound mind.
Amen.

Reflect and Journal

1. Do you ever find yourself treating others in negative or critical ways you feel about your own self at any given time? Kind of like taking out how you feel on others…in others words…I feel bad and so should they. Not that you consciously choose to do so. Misery just likes company, so to speak.

2. How do you think a revelation of His love regardless of who you are or what you have done can change this negative cycle most of us find ourselves in from time to time?

3. How is your love of others directly related to your revelation of His love for you?

4. Ponder the word above and write out what you are most afraid of. It will help you to face the issue and give you the courage to overcome. Just facing things makes it easier.
