My Precious Child,
I am removing self-reliance from you so that you can live as you were designed – as a branch in the Vine!
You weren’t meant to carry the weight of the world on your shoulders. I actually designed you to be completely dependent upon Me. My yoke is easy and My burden is light. It’s ok to let it all go, beloved. Drop your burdens and cast all of your anxieties upon Me. I am more than capable of taking care of everything concerning you. So go ahead, take a load off, and let Me do the work for you, through you. And remember, it is in the place of stillness and quiet that you hear Me and find rest. When you are weary it is because you have been toiling or trying to do My job. Everything just flows naturally, with ease, when you are walking in My Spirit.
I created you to be My instrument. I am the one who makes a sweet melody out of your life. There is no effort here on your part.
Self-reliance is exhausting. Which is why I am perfecting your ability to let go. My grace is so powerful, it will literally sweep you off your feet. It is My role to refresh you and give you everything that you need. Look at Me and be radiant, My sweet child. It is the finished work of My Son Jesus that I have called you to trust in, you see. We have done everything that needs doing, FOR you. And now we simply want to find expression in your body and manifest Our glory through you. This is not hard work, quite the opposite. In fact, you will be so refreshed as you rest in Our love, you will become more productive than ever!
When you let go and trust, then We are able to lead you and work through you.. We co-create together because now We are operating as One.
It is all about surrender, child. When you give over your body to be a living sacrifice, that is when the magic really happens. Paul was super-infused with My energy and grace because He had let go of attachments to this world and gave himself completely to Me. He wasn’t some kind of “super saint.” No, he just understood how to live in union with Me. I have designed you for this exact kind of life. You are created to lose control, beloved. And, as you loosen your grip on this life and your need to control things, you begin to experience freedom! You don’t want to miss out on this. It is pure bliss to lose control and be swept away by My love and used for My divine purposes. This is where you begin to walk out those good works I predestined you for, and it is the most satisfying way to live.
You died with Christ and now your new existence is My Son Jesus living in and through you. This is the true Gospel…You have My life flowing in your veins.
When you present yourself to Me to use your body in surrender as one alive from the dead, you experience the newness of life that Paul wrote of in Romans 6. You are a branch on My Vine. This is the glorious freedom of the sons of God, when they fully rely on Me! This is how you live life abundantly. You’re rested and happy because you are no longer striving in your willpower. You’re simply leaning on your Beloved Jesus, being a branch on the Vine! Woo-hoo!! Resurrected living baby! Welcome to ecstasy, My sweet child.
Kisses from Heaven,
