March 19 – Courage
I am here. Fear not. Can you really trust Me? I am a God of Power, as well as a Man of Love, so human, yet so divine.
Just trust. I cannot, and I will not, fail you. All is well. Courage.
Many are praying for you both.
“Some trust in chariots, and some in horses: but we
will remember the name of the Lord our God.” – Psalm 20:7
March 18 – Your Resolutions
Listen, listen, I am your Lord. Before me there is none other. Just trust Me in everything. Help is here all the time.
The difficult way is nearly over, but you have learnt in it lessons you could learn in no other way. “The kingdom of heaven suffereth violence, and the violent take it by force.” Wrest from Me, by firm and simple trust and persistent prayer, the treasures of My Kingdom.
Such wonderful things are coming to you, Joy – Peace – Assurance – Security – Health – Happiness – Laughter.
Claim big, really big, things now. Remember, nothing is too big. Satisfy the longings of My Heart to give. Blessing, abundant blessing on you both now and always. Peace.
“Call unto me, and I will answer thee, and shew thee great and
mighty things, which thou knowest not.” – Jeremiah 33:3
March 17 – No Greater Joy
Withdraw into the calm of communion with Me. Rest – rest, rest in that calm and Peace. Life knows no greater joy than you will find in converse and companionship with Me.
You are Mine. When the soul finds its home of rest in Me, then it is, that its real Life begins. Not in years, as man counts it, do we measure in My Kingdom.
We count only from his second birth, that new birth of which I spoke to Nicodemus when I said, “Ye must be born again.” We know no life but Eternal Life and when a man enters into that, then he lives.
And this is Life Eternal, to know God, My Father and Me, the Son sent by Him. So immature, so childish, so empty is all so-called living before that. I shower Love on you. Pass Love on.
Do not fear. To fear is as foolish as if a small child with a small coin, but a rich father, fretted about how rent and rates should be paid, and what he or she would do about it. Is this work Mine or not? You need to trust Me for everything.
“There remaineth therefore a rest to the people of God.
For he that is entered into his rest, he also hath ceased
from his own works, as God did from his.” – Hebrews 4:9,10
March 16 – Reflect Me
My children, I am here beside you. Draw near in spirit to Me. Shut out the distractions of the world. I am your Life, the very breath of your soul. Learn what it is to shut yourself in the secret place of your being, which is My secret place too.
True it is, I wait in many a heart, but so few retire into that inner place of the being to commune with Me. Wherever the soul is, I am. Man has rarely understood this. I am actually at the center of every man’s being, but, distracted with the things of the sense-life, he finds Me not.
Do you realize that I am telling you truths, revealing them, not repeating oft-told facts. Meditate on all I say. Ponder it. Not to draw your own conclusions, but to absorb Mine.
All down the ages, men have been too eager to say what they thought about My truth, and so doing, they have grievously erred. Hear Me. Talk to Me. Reflect Me. Do not say what you think about me. My words need none of man’s explanation. I can explain to each heart.
Make Me real, and leave Me to do My own work. To lead a soul to Me is one thing, to seek to stay with it to interpret mars the first great act. So would it be with human intercourse. How much more then, when it is a question of the soul, and Me, its Maker, and only real Spirit that understands it.
“In returning and rest shall ye be saved; in quietness
and in confidence shall be your strength.” – Isaiah 30:15
March 15 – Your Cross is You
Remember, you are only an instrument. Not yours to decide how or when or where you act. I plan all that. Make yourself very fit to do My work. All that hinders your activity must be cured.
Mine is the Cross on which the burdens of the world are laid. How foolish is any one of My disciples who seeks to bear his own burdens, when there is only one place for them – My Cross.
It is like a weary man on a hot and dusty road, bearing a heavy load, when all plans have been made for its carriage. The road, the scenery, flowers, beauty around – all are lost.
But, My children, you may think I did say, “Take up your cross daily, and follow Me.”
Yes, but the cross given to each one of you is only a cross provided on which you can crucify the self of yours that hinders progress and Joy, and prevents the flow through your being of My invigorating Life and Spirit.
Listen to Me, love Me, joy in Me. Rejoice.
And the peace of God, which passeth all understanding, shall
keep your hearts and minds through Christ Jesus. Philippians 4:7
March 14 – God’s Touch
Near, all broodingly near, as some tender motherbird anxious over its young, I am here. I am your Lord, Life of your body and mind and soul – renewer of your youth.
You do not know all that this time of converse with Me will mean to you. Did not My servant Isaiah say, “They that wait upon the Lord shall renew their strength. They shall mount up with wings as eagles, they shall run and not be weary, they shall walk and not faint.”
Persevere in all I tell you to do. The persistent carrying out of My commands, My desires, will unfailingly bring you, as far as spiritual, mental, and temporal things are concerned, to that place where you would be.
If you look back over My Words to you, you will see that My leading has been very gradual, and that only as you have carried out My wishes, have I been able to give you more clear and definite teaching and guidance.
Man’s ecstasy is God’s touch on quickened, responsive, spirit-nerves. Joy – Joy – Joy
Forget not all his benefits … who satisfieth thy
mouth with good things; so that thy youth is
renewed like the eagle’s. Psalm 103:2,5
March 13 – Spiritualism
Wait before Me, gently breathing in My Spirit.
That Spirit which, if given a free entrance, and not barred out by self, will enable you to do the same works as I did, which being interpreted is, will enable Me to do the same works, and even greater than I did when on earth – through you.
Spiritualism is wrong. No man should ever be a medium for any spirit, other than Mine.
All you should know, all it is well for you to know of My Spirit-Kingdom, I will tell you when and how I see best. The limit is set by your own spiritual development.
Follow My injunctions in all things.
Peace – Peace – Peace.
“This I say then, Walk in the Spirit, and ye shall
not fulfill the lust of the flesh.” – Galatians 5:16
March 12 – Simplicity
Simplicity is the keynote of My Kingdom. Choose simple things always.
Love and reverence the humble and the simple.
Have only simple things here. Your standard must never be the world’s standard.
“But seek ye first the kingdom of God, and his righteousness;
and all these things shall be added unto you.” – Matthew 6:33
March 11 – Seek Beauty
Draw Beauty from every flower and Joy from the song of the birds, and the color of the flowers.
Drink in the beauty of air and color. I am with you. When I wanted to express a beautiful thought, I made a lovely flower. I have told you. Reflect.
When I want to express to man what I am – what my Father is – I strive to make a very beautiful character.
Think of yourselves as My expression of attributes, as a lovely flower is My expression of thought, and you will strive in all, in Spiritual beauty, in Thought – power, in Health, in clothing, to be as fit an expression for Me as you can.
Absorb Beauty. As soon as the beauty of a flower or a tree is impressed upon your soul it leaves an image there which reflects through your actions. Remember that no thought of sin and suffering, of the approaching scorn and Crucifixion, ever prevented My seeing the beauty of the flowers.
Look for beauty and joy in the world around. Look at a flower until its beauty becomes part of your very soul. It will be given back to the world again by you in the form of a smile or a loving word or a kind thought or a prayer.
Listen to a bird. Take the song as a message from My Father. Let it sink into your soul. That too will be given back to the world in ways I have said. Laugh more, laugh often. Love more. I am with you. I am your Lord.
“The heavens declare the glory of God; and
the firmament sheweth his handiwork.” – Psalm 19:1
March 10 – Fruit of Joy
You have to hush the heart and bid all your senses be still before you can be attuned to receive Heaven’s music.
Your five senses are your means of communication with the material world, the links between your real Spirit-Life and the material manifestations around you, but you must sever all connection with them, when you wish to hold Spirit-communication. They will hinder, not help.
See the good in everybody. Love the good in them. See your unworthiness compared with their worth. Love, laugh, make the world, your little world, happy.
As the ripples caused by a flung stone stir the surface of a whole pond, so your joy-making shall spread in ever-widening circles, beyond all your knowledge, all anticipation. Joy in Me. Such Joy is eternal.
Centuries after, it is still bearing Joy’s precious fruit.
“These things have I spoken unto you,
that my joy might remain in you,
and that your joy might be full.”
– John 15:11
