Many are the servants who work for me not because they love me but because they want to receive something from me and in the test of time they fall away and they are not able to stand for me
I want to pose this question before you, that do you work for me because you want to receive something from me or do you work for me because you love me?
I the Lord prepared the place for the people of Israel and on their journey to the place, many looked on to my works more than my personality and many focused on the land more than me and because of that they could not get to the land that I the Lord promised them. I want to urge you that do not follow me because of what you want to receive from me but follow me because of your love for me and the love that you attach to the work that I the Lord has committed to you.
I want you to know that, Peter as a disciple walked with me but denied me three times because he had not yet loved me. And because of that, I the Lord reinstated him 3 times to his rightful position so that he will know that I the Lord have called him and will be prepared for the work that I the Lord have prepared for him.
I want you to know that, so just as I’ve prepared the land of Canaan before the people of Israel, I have prepared a place before you; a place that is indescribable beyond your realm. But I want you to know that, do not look up to the place and do not focus more on the place more than I the Lord. But look up to me so that you will not fall away in the test of time; that in the good times and bad you will be able to stand for me. Then I the Lord will be pleased.
In doing so, I will be glorified and I the Lord will not put you to shame.
I want to psych your mind that the apostles walked with boldness and spoke my word with boldness because they had walked with me and they loved me and because of that they stood for me in good times and in bad times.
The prophets spoke with courage because they had walked with me and known my divine counsel and because of that they feared not the crowd and they spoke forth my word and I the Lord did not put them to shame. So do I want you to give your heart and commit your ways to me and fear not. Do the work that I the Lord give to you out of love and not because you want to receive something from me.
I want you to know that in good and in bad times, I the Lord will not put you to shame just as I did not put the apostles and the prophets to shame. If only you heed to me and do not do the work because you want to receive something from me. Just as I asked Peter, I want to ask you now that, DO YOU LOVE ME? Are you ready to stand for me in the good and the bad times?
In the test of time, are you willing to stand firm in my grace and in my call that I the Lord have ordained before you?
I want to implore you that come back to me and in order that I the Lord will be glorified. I want you to do this work out of love. Out of love, I want you to attach your heart to this work. Know that, in doing so, I the Lord will be pleased with you and in good times and bad I won’t put you to shame and I will be glorified. That way I will give you the allotted inheritance that I the Lord have prepared for you.
May grace and peace be with you!
