Don't aim for perfection, because you won't hit it. Aim for My will, and your plan will be a good one. Do your best, learn from your mistakes as you go, keep things simple, enjoy the process, and leave room for Me to work. That's what I expect. Perfection doesn't enter the equation. (--"Got Strategy?")

Tuesday, February 19, 2008 U.N.I.T.Y.

I'm talking about a bond between us that is so strong that nothing will be able to separate us! I'm talking about a love that is so personal that it weeps, it aches, it feels when your loved one is in need or in trouble or being tested and tempted by the Enemy. I'm talking about a desire for another's happiness that is so real that you're willing to sacrifice your own personal preferences or desires or privacy because you want to see your brethren, your family, your loved one, happy. I'm talking about a love that is so rich and warm, so alive, that you who have personal, private relationships are moved to open your arms, your hearts, and your lives to others.
The kind of unity that brings the blessings of God is hot, vibrant, moving! It's not complacent or lethargic, just taking things as they come, ho-hum. It's going on the attack to reach out; to feel what the other person is feeling; to dry their tears; to bear their burdens; to feel their afflictions; to minister to those who are sick and nurse them back to health; to listen with a loving, open ear to those who need to pour out; to be a caring and understanding friend to those who need a friend; to pray for those in need; to let their heartaches be your heartaches; to make their hopes and dreams your hopes and dreams.

Thursday, February 14, 2008 Happy Valentine's Day

(Jesus:) It's Valentine's Day. Let Me be your Lover‚ the object of your passion, and then I will fill you with My love for others. Your love is human and can be dry, cold, or selfish at times. But My love is always warm, passionate‚ giving, and attuned to the needs of others. Unselfish love, never-failing love, impartial love, generous and caring love‚ outgoing love--you have longed for this, and I am the only One Who can give it to you. So let's love today, and My love will overflow from your cup to the cup of others.
(Prophecy Vitamins, Part 4)

Tuesday, February 05, 2008 He knows I'm not super-human...

...yet He still loves me. Whew!

Jesus: You've been faithful. You've been loyal. You've been through the fire of afflictions and battles, and yet you fight on. You've had your doubts, your times of seeming defeat, your times of discouragement, yet through all of these times you've remained under the shadow of My wings. You've stood by My side when others disowned Me. You've given your all when some others would only have given a part. You've trusted Me with your life, your marriage, your love, your happiness, and your children—this is why I'm proud of you.

I designed and created your body, your heart, your mind and your spirit to be weak, to be fallible, and to be incomplete and insufficient without Me. I created you in a human form, with a body that makes mistakes and isn't always perfect, so I don't expect perfection.

Even when you have My strength and My power within you, I can't allow you to be perfect, for this would only minister to your pride. Even when you're close to Me, loving Me intimately, abiding in the center of My will and serving Me to the best of your ability, I allow you to be weak, to lack in faith, to have feelings of uncertainty, so that you will always remember that it's My Spirit that sustains you and causes you to prosper.

I use your failings, your times of uncertainty, your times of trial, the times when you feel you're lacking in faith, the times when you don't fully yield to Me, to humble you and draw you closer to Me. My loves, I don't require perfection; all that I desire is your love and your dependence on Me. I know that you're human, that you're weak, that you get tired, and that the Enemy buffets you with his lies and doubts. If I'd given you a supernatural body, then perhaps I could expect perfection from you; but I never expect perfection from you, as that is never possible. I only desire your love and your desperation.

"Too long have we been waiting for one another to begin! The time of waiting is past! The hour of God has struck! War is declared! In God's Holy Name let us arise and build! 'The God of Heaven, He will fight for us', as we for Him. We will not build on the sand, but on the bedrock of the sayings of Christ, and the gates and minions of hell shall not prevail against us. Should such men as we fear? Before the world, aye, before the sleepy, lukewarm, faithless, namby-pamby Christian world, we will dare to trust our God, we will venture our all for Him, we will live and we will die for Him, and we will do it with His joy unspeakable singing aloud in our hearts. We will a thousand times sooner die trusting only our God, than live trusting in man. And when we come to this position the battle is already won, and the end of the glorious campaign in sight. We will have the real Holiness of God, not the sickly stuff of talk and dainty words and pretty thoughts; we will have a Masculine Holiness, one of daring faith and works for Jesus Christ."
