My beloved child…in your physical life, maturity is growth from the utter dependence of a baby to the complete independence and self-reliance of an adult.  In the spiritual life, however, maturity is growth from complete independence and self-reliance to utter dependency upon God.  He is most spiritually mature who lives a life of unreserved child-like dependence upon Me. [Father God…Isa 48:17-18]

**        **, greatly beloved, continually and unceasingly day and night, your heart needs to breathe in that breath of life that comes from My Holy Spirit and sustains your spiritual life…just the same as your lungs need, continually and unceasingly, to breathe in that breath of life that comes from the outside air and sustains your physical life.  It is the Spirit of God Who works in you both to will and to do…Who works in you both the desire to obey your God and Father’s will, and the power to do My will.  Apart from My Holy Spirit, not only would you not be able to do God’s will, you wouldn’t even want to do My will.  He alone is the Power of your life in God; the powers of your flesh are of no use to you in your life with Me.  Indeed, in the power of your flesh, you are hopelessly powerless, hopelessly impotent, hopelessly helpless, to do anything or say anything that is good and pleasing and acceptable to God.  Therefore beloved, I Myself have assured you…I am infinitely willing, through the gift of My Holy Spirit I have graciously given to dwell in you, to BE ALL in you…all I created you to be, all I saved you to be…and to DO ALL in you…all that I Myself have planned in advance for you to do.  Not in your own strength, **        **, for it is God Who is all the while effectually at work in you, energizing and creating in you the power and desire, both to will and to work for His good pleasure and satisfaction and delight. [Phil 2:13]

Now, beloved, may the God of peace, Who brought again from among the dead our Lord Jesus, that great Shepherd of the sheep, by the Blood that sealed and ratified the everlasting Covenant, strengthen and perfect and make you what you ought to be, and equip you with everything good, that you may carry out His will; while He Himself works in you and accomplishes that which is pleasing in His sight, through Jesus Christ; to Whom be the glory forever and ever.  Amen. [Heb 13:20-21]  And so I counsel you, precious child, Walk and live habitually in the Holy Spirit…responsive to and controlled and guided by My Spirit; then you will certainly not gratify the cravings and desires of your sin-enslaved human nature.  For the desires of the flesh are opposed to the Holy Spirit, and the desires of the Spirit are opposed to your sin-enslaved human nature; for these are antagonistic to each other…continually withstanding and in conflict with each other, so that you are not free but face continual opposition in doing what you desire to do in obedience to God’s will. But if you are living your life guided by My Holy Spirit, your life is no longer under the guidance of the demands of the Law, which has no power to suppress the desires of your sin-enslaved human nature. [Gal 5:16-18]

Friends, brothers and sisters…

There is one absolutely necessary preparation for every living soul on the face of this Earth, for the soon coming and imminent return of Jesus Christ…the one preparation that will irrevocably determine in which neighborhood you will spend all eternity, whether in Heaven or in Hell.  You must be a born-again child of God.  I tell you the truth, unless you are born again, you cannot be in God’s Kingdom.  I tell you the truth, no one can ever enter the Kingdom of God unless you are born of water and the Spirit.  Flesh gives birth to flesh, but the Spirit gives birth to spirit.  You should not be surprised at My saying you must be born again. [Jesus…John 3:3-7]

If you have never been born again,
or you are not sure whether you have been born again,
or you have been living your life as a lukewarm Christian and would now like to recommit your life and enter into a deep and intimate relationship with Christ Jesus in preparation for the soon coming marriage supper of the Lamb…
then I counsel you to get alone with God, read the solemn marriage vows you must make to become the bride of Christ and thereby be born-again, [], and with sincerity of heart from within the depths of your being, acknowledge before God, “I DO.”

In Every Day That Dawns I’m Grateful:
