Pray, worship, read or listen to His Word. Ask God,"What is the best use of my time today?" and write down what you sense the Lord saying to you.
When you spend the first part of your day with the Lord you set your intentions for the day. I think you'll be surprised at what a difference it makes - its amazing how differently the day goes when you engage with God in this way.
If you want to be more aware of God's presence throughout the day you could try purposely stopping to be with Jesus at set times during the day.
Simply to read scripture, pray, worship and spend time contemplating and listening to God, these are the things that help to keep you in communion.
The C of E have created apps to help you do this, you'll find them here
Apps for worship
Let me know how you get on.

Keep on believing whatever the circumstances seem to suggest, and know that God's promises will come to pass for those who continue to believe. I encourage you to decide that you will ONLY live by God's Word and His promises, that you will continue to believe even though you do not yet see the promises fulfilled.
Take your eyes off the circumstances and keep them on Jesus who is the author and finisher of your faith.
"Can all your worries add a single moment to your life? And if worry can’t accomplish a little thing like that, what’s the use of worrying over bigger things?"Worry is a thief, I encourage you to stop letting worry rob you of joy in the here and now. Refuse to be robbed any longer, and TRUST God.

The big secret about hearing God’s voice is… there is no secret!
This book presents an uncomplicated and practical guide to hearing God. The fact is, God wants you to hear Him even more than you want to hear Him. He even promises that His sheep (that’s us!) will hear His voice.

This easy to read coaching guide equips you to recognize God’s voice, even if your prayer life is currently weak or even non-existent!
God wants to become more real to you than you can imagine. He intended prayer to be a two way conversation, two way dialogues between you and Him.
You will discover:
- Keys to hearing God’s voice
- What God’s voice sounds like
- How to easily have two way conversations with God How you can know that it’s God speaking rather than your own thoughts
- What to do when hearing God is a struggle
- And much more…
This coaching guide is designed to help people who don’t think they hear God’s voice to know when they do – and also to help people who already hear God, to hear Him more often and more clearly.
Whether you’re just starting out on this exciting journey; or you already hear God but want to develop a deeper intimacy with Him, you will find essential keys to hearing God speak to you about everything from life changing decisions to everyday issues.
If you want to be able to more easily recognize God’s voice more of the time, this short coaching guide will be a big help.

There are already messages there that I know willl bless your heart. I hope you will pay a vist and comment on what the Lord has already shared with me.

I'd like to share something with you. When I had a big decision to make last week, and needed to hear from God, I sat with my journal and my Bible and asked God to speak to me. The Lord led me to read a Scripture that clearly answered my question and enabled me to say no to something that would have been a huge pressure and time drain.
If I hadn't taken time to find God's heart for me in that moment, I would have gone ahead and said yes to something believing that it was God's provision and that I couldn' say no however uncomfortable life may get as a result of saying yes.
Since saying no, I have had peace, and God has opened another door to financial provision that will be stress free! For me, journaling has been a key to hearing God's voice for many areas of my life. I would like to invite you to join us for a free webinar so that you can discover how to hear God for you and others.
This free webinar could be just what you need to help you transform your life. What you don't know about journaling is costing you time, money, joy, peace, health, and quality relationships. Journaling opens the door to quickly experience breakthroughs in many areas of your life.

I have become very busy with doing many good things, God is saying,
So, I am laying aside many of the things that have kept me busy and going back to giving the Lord first place in my life. I hope that you'll join me.
"Put your relationship with me first"
God doesn't want you to do more for Him, He wants you to spend more time with Him.
Abide in me
He says, I am the vine, and you are the branches. He who abides in Me and I in him, bears much fruit; without Me you can do nothing.
Your heavenly Father wants you to choose to be with Him more of the time. He longs for you to choose to spend more of your day with Him.
I strongly encourage you to become closely connected then stay closely connected. Remember, without God you can do nothing of any lasting value.
If you want to grow in God, then you can no longer settle for giving Him second or third or fourth place. Make friendship with God your first priority.
Are you ready to give God FIRST place in your life?
What will you do differently to make sure that God gets His rightful place?
I am going back to spending the first part of the day with God. For me, that means meditating on His word, writing down what I hear Him say, and acting on it.

Obstacles to hearing God
Thinking that what you hear is just your imagination
One of the bigggest obstacles to hearing God is thinking that what you hear is just your own thoughts. Skepticism, causes you to reject what you hear from the Holy Spirit.
Over dependence on other people to hear God for you
God is longing to have a close relationship with you. He wants you to hear Him for yourself even more than you do.
Being too busy
You will find it easier to hear God if you slow down and create space in your life. Be still enough to spend time deliberately listening for God's voice, and train youself to recognise when it's God speaking rather than your own thoughts.
Turn down the noise and turn up the volume!
God often speaks quietly, Elijah recognised that God was speaking in a whisper rather than in the raging wind, earthquake or fire.
Turn off the noise, tune out anything that could interfere with you hearing God.
Create favourable circumstances. Give God more opportunities to be heard, create an atmosphere that makes it easy to hear God anytime.
If you want to continue hearing God, make sure that you are willing to act on what He says to you.
It’s much easier to hear God when you are ready to receive what He has to say.
Don't expect to hear God if you are walking in disobedience
You need to make sure that you pay attention to the things God reveals. If you've heard God in the past and haven't acted on what you've heard, you need to put that right with God and let Him know that Him know that you're ready to hear and willing to do whatever he says.
There are many reasons why you might find it hard to hear God.
Make sure you're tuned to the right frequency and that there is nothing in the way of you having a good connection.
Selective hearing can be a barrier to hearing God. You will struggle to hear if you are expecting God to speak in a particular way. If He doesn't doesn speak in the way you expect you might not recognise God speaking to you. You need to be open to God speaking in any way He wants too.
Do you want to hear God enough to spend time waiting and listening, believing that He will speak?
Ask God to speak to you and wait for an answer. Be like Habakkuk - stand at your guard post, keep watch and see what He will speak to you.

He sent a man before them, even Joseph, who was sold for a servant: Whose feet they hurt with fetters: he was laid in iron: Until the time that his word came: the word of the LORD tried him. The king sent and loosed him; even the ruler of the people, and let him go free. He made him lord of his house, and ruler of all his substance: To bind his princes at his pleasure; and teach his senators wisdom. Psalm 105:17-22We are living in a critical and prophetic hour where all things are shifting and being brought back into divine alignment. I sense there is a major attack on the Body of Christ and leaders. I am in prayer that you, your mind, your strength fail not. I am prevailing in prayer and I am decreeing and declaring that you shall be victorious and you shall recover all.
I entreat you: There is humiliation before honor, price before promotion, stigma and scandal before success, attacks before accolades, but I hear God say,
"When thou passest through the water, I will be with you and through the fire, you will not be burned."I hear the Word,
"Hold fast to the profession of your faith…and having done all, still stand."Your problem and crisis situation is a divine announcement that God is getting ready to either prosper you and/or promote you. Do not resist the situation. Do not throw in the towel. Do not ignore the situation. Do not demonize the situation. Do not pretend the situation is not there. Wrestle with it in prayer.
Dare to Press In
Dare to press into God through prayer. Dare to see your storms as an opportunity to advance spiritually, financially, socially, ministerially, and for personal growth and development. Dare to walk on your prophetic turbulent waters, see and experience the power and presence of God in a new way (see Matthew 14:23-33)
According to these verses, not only will you overcome that which has overtaken you, but you will also be ushered into a new realm of power and a new place of worship. I decree and declare to all of you that favor is upon you.
He has anointed your head with fresh oil. During this time, we all need to let go in order to see and experience Jehovah-Jireh, Jehovah-Gibbor, Jehovah-Rapha in our lives. You need to give up trusting in your own way and designs in order to experience God's all-sufficiency. Lean not on your own understanding.
I further exhort all of you, to stop talking to the snake. Take the time to hear and talk to God. He only is the Author and Finisher of your faith.
I encourage you from Psalm 46:10: Be Still, and Know That I am God: I will be exalted among the heathen, I will be exalted in the earth. Indeed God Has the final word.

“Trust in the LORD and do good; Dwell in the land, and feed on his faithfulness. Delight yourself also in the LORD; And He will give you the desires of your heart.” (Psalm 37:3-4)
If you did what this Scripture said and fed on God's faithfulness, worry would be a thing of the past, it would simply starve to death as you focused on God's faithfulness, took Him at His word and trusted His promises.
Worry is fed by fear and God's word continually tells us not to fear. Worry would disappear if you didn’t feed it.
I appreciated what Michael J Pink had to say about feeding on God's faithfulness, may you be blessed as you read it.

How do you learn to exercise your senses and become more keenly aware of the spiritual world that surrounds you?
How God taught Jeremiah to see
"Moreover, the word of the Lord came to me saying, 'Jeremiah, what do you see?' And I said, 'I see a branch of an almond tree.' And the Lord said to me, 'You have seen well, for I am ready to perform my word.'" Jeremiah 1:11:Looking in faith will lead to seeing in faith, and confessing what you've seen in faith will lead to receiving understanding in faith.
Increasing your faith
"'For whoever has, to him more will be given; but whoever does not have, even what he has will be taken away from him'" Mark 4:25If you don't use the faith you have, your ability to see and hear from God will wither away and slowly fade, but if you do put your faith into practice, it will increase.
Your current level of hearing, faith and prophetic ability can increase. Spiritual exercises will strengthen your spirit and your faith will grow; with time and practice, you will begin to see Him and hear His voice more clearly.

"For I say, through the grace given unto me, to every man that is among you, not to think of himself more highly than he ought to think; but to think soberly, according as God hath dealt to every man the measure of faith...Having then gifts differing according to the grace that is given to us, let us use them: if prophecy, let us prophesy in proportion to our faith; or ministry, let us use it in our ministering; he who teaches, in teaching; he who exhorts, in exhortation; he who gives, with liberality; he who leads, with diligence; he who shows mercy, with cheerfulness."
Romans 12:3, 6-8
Element is used to describe the place where things we love to do and things we are good at come together. Each one of us must find our element. Have you ever heard the saying, "He is in his element"? It's that place where everything you do well and beautifully is enhanced and expressed without hindrance because of the perfect environment you're in. Water is the element of fish for instance.
You've also possibly heard the saying, "He's like a fish out of water." Well, that simply means you are "out of your element." Many people suffer unnecessarily because they are forced to operate out of their element, and when this happens there is a pressure on them to be something that they're not.
This is one huge positive in terms of a prophetic gift. My belief is that a prophetic voice places a person in their element by releasing a word to them, that, in turn, forces them to seek an environment conducive or favorable for their gift. My goal and aspiration in life is to create environments for all whom I am privileged to be in contact with—where each one of them is inspired to grow creatively.
King David was in his element in the wild, on the hills and mountains with his harp in one hand and his sling in the other. He was chosen as king, but the environment that was afforded him was not favorable for his existence. Once he got into the polished, marble and gold palace, he felt like a fish out of water. He ended up with another man's wife and killing his best friend.
Eventually, King David built a mountain, a rough mountain, and called it Zion. On that mountain he placed a tent, and in the tent, the Ark of the Covenant. He called this place, "The City of David." He created an environment where he was inspired and "at home." He was in his element. People need to have the chance to do what they should be doing and to discover their element in their own way.
What is Your Purpose? What is Your Destiny?
The fact is that there is a difference between your purpose and your destiny. Your destiny is your ultimate election. Your purpose is your present call. What did God choose you to do ultimately on this earth? What is your ultimate election? What were you elected to do before you were born? That's what your destiny is. What is your purpose? Your purpose is whatever you are called to do right now at this very moment.
Again, let me mention King David. David was one of those guys that was in his element when he was in the field, with his harp and with his slingshot, when he was killing bears and lions and singing songs to God. One day the prophet Samuel came to him and said, "You are anointed to be the King of Israel." And from that point onward, destiny was released in David. David already had an election before he was born, but destiny was released. It was stagnant until the prophetic word came to David.
The same applies to you—there is something inside of you that has not yet been unlocked. There is a destiny inside of you that you don't even know about, that you were elected for long before you were born, and suddenly, the Spirit breathes on you and immediately that destiny inside of you is released, it's unlocked, and you suddenly become more aware of it.
Once Samuel had prophesied and laid his hands upon David and said, "You are the King of Israel," did David become the king immediately? No, not according to the Scriptures—it tells us that it took years until David was finally crowned as the King of Judah, and then later the King of Israel. This is important for you to realize—David lived according to his destiny while he was serving his purpose. Destiny is what you are ultimately called to perform in this life. Your purpose is what you are called to perform while progressing to your destiny.
First of all, David is elected and anointed to be the King of Israel, the King of Zion. But he is a young man. He goes out into the fields and one day he hears the sound of a giant that is challenging the people of Israel. Suddenly, something rises in David and he becomes enraged and boldness rises inside of him. His destined authority takes over and he begins to say things that he never dreamed he would say as a shepherd and psalmist. David begins to speak to the people and says, "Give me this uncircumcised Philistine, I'll take him down!"
This boldness provokes anger and jealousy amongst his brothers. His brothers say, "What are you doing here? You are supposed to be in the field looking after our Dad's sheep." They get provoked to jealousy, because sometimes that's what happens when the authority of God comes upon you when you have a destiny. So David says, "I want to have a chance to fight this giant."
You know this story. He prophesies to Goliath and tells him exactly what he's going to do with him in the name of the Lord of Hosts, and it happens! From that point onward, David's call or purpose is to be an armor bearer for King Saul. You may think, "He was anointed to be the King of Israel!" Well that's right, but you've got to understand that he has to serve a purpose before he takes the throne in his ultimate election.
What Are You Called to Do Right Now?
What is your call? What is your purpose? What are you called to do right now? David was called to be an armor bearer and psalmist-musician for King Saul; that was his temporary purpose. Your purpose is always temporary, always changing, but always promoting your destiny. Your present purpose is never permanent. It's important for you to understand that. What you are doing right now may only be for a specific time because God is leading you to your destiny. But if you don't fulfill your call, you may never get to your destiny.
What was David's "call" after that? David's call after that was to run into the wild and live there in exile. King Saul became jealous of David and chased after him, attempting to kill the anointing that he felt belonged to him. David's call, or his purpose, was to be in the field, in the mountains and the hills. Yet even though he was in a place of confinement, he was fulfilling a call and a purpose.
Joseph was anointed and had a dream of kingship. His brothers became jealous of him and were provoked to anger. Why? Because Joseph opened his mouth and spoke with boldness and said, "This is what I dreamed." You see, that boldness comes upon you only when you have been released into your destiny. Once you've been released into your destiny, you may not even realize it, but you are speaking out something that is already in existence. Many other people will be angry with you and upset.
After they sold Joseph as a slave, he was "called" to be in Potiphar's home. Joseph was then placed into prison, and even though he was in solitary confinement, he had a purpose. His purpose was to minister to the butler, to the baker and to the prisoners, and he did it! The Bible says that Joseph prospered in prison. You can prosper in any kind of confinement IF you realize that this is your purpose, and this purpose is leading you to your ultimate election.
You don't have to be confined by bars. You don't have to be confined by the words of people. You don't have to be confined by hatred, jealousy or competition. No matter where they place you, you will still prosper because your destiny dictates your present circumstances. Many of you don't realize that if you keep your eye on your destiny and you fulfill your present purpose—which is whatever you are called to do, whether mopping floors somewhere or working a menial job—YOU WILL BE HAPPY WHILE ON YOUR JOURNEY TO YOUR POSITION IN LIFE.
2 Peter 1:10: "Therefore brethren, be even more diligent to make your call and your election sure. For if you do these things you will not stumble."
When you are sure of your call and you are sure of your election, you will never stumble. The word "stumble" there doesn't mean that you're not going to sin and you're not going to make a mistake. It just means that you may fall down, you may make a mistake, but you will ultimately rise up and you will get back on track because YOUR CALL AND YOUR DESTINY WILL RESTORE YOU.
Your Call is Your Purpose in 2009
Now I'm going to rephrase this because I want you to be in your element. I want you to be at the place where you are doing what you enjoy doing and you are doing what you do well, so that you are not like a fish out of water. Remember, there's a difference between your call and your election. Your call is your purpose in 2009. What is your purpose in 2009?
"Well, I'm called to be a radio announcer. Well, I'm called at this time to be a janitor, but I know that one day I'm going to be a multi-millionaire. I'm going to be a great salesman; an entrepreneur." Make sure of what your call is, and make sure of your election. What's amazing in 2 Peter 1:10-11, "...if you do this...(if you know what your election is and if you know what your call is) an entrance will be supplied for you in the everlasting Kingdom..." What does this mean?
Everybody wants to enter the Kingdom. I'm not talking about going to Heaven. Entering the Kingdom of God means being effective, powerful, influential and affluent in every way on this Earth for the purpose of God. Peter says that,
"You have an entrance into the everlasting Kingdom."The Kingdom of God is the rulership of God and we have to enter that. And he is also saying,
"If you know what your calling is, if you know what your election is, there will be a door open to you into the everlasting Kingdom."Why was David able to sing in Psalm 57:7, "My heart is fixed oh God, my heart is fixed: I WILL sing praise" while he was in a cave? What gave him this boldness? He was hated by an entire army. King Saul was looking to kill him. He had a few men around him that weren't even trustworthy. He had no reason, while in a cave under miserable circumstances and conditions, to say, "My heart is fixed." He knew what his purpose was, he knew what his election was and so he sang to God, "My heart is fixed and I will sing praises."
If someone can say "My heart is stable, I'm not insecure, and I'm going to sing praises," then even if that person was in prison or in debt or whatever, that person has security, NOT in his circumstances, NOT in the things that are happening around him, but he is confident in this one thing:
"He that has called me is faithful and He will do it."
David knew he was the King of Israel. He was dumped in a miserable cave, chased by an army, but he lifted up his voice and he said, "My heart is steady, my heart is secure, and I WILL sing praise!" And he did it. He sang praise and the result was that he ended up being the King of Israel.
When Are You in Your Element?
When God breathes on somebody and speaks, He places that person in their element, which in turn forces them to seek an environment conducive or favorable for their gift. When God speaks to you and shows you what you are going to do one day, what ultimately happens then is the enemy of your soul tries to create an environment to stifle your creativity. He tries to create a religious environment to stifle your gift so it won't be effective and what that does is it forces you to find and create an environment where you can be most effective.
You have to seek and create an environment where you are in your element, where you are operating at your best, your finest, being your sharpest. You have the ability to create that environment.
I have found that if you can operate your gift, like David did in a cave and like Joseph did in prison, then you've learned to create an environment that brings the best out of you under the most difficult circumstances and one day when things are more favorable, you will perform perfectly. That's what God wants from you.
Don't ever think that you are going to be stuck in this rut forever. Start searching and saying, "What do I need to do to be most effective?" and then create the environment that will bring the best out of you. Go!

"You weren't an accident. You weren't mass produced. You aren't an assembly line product. You were deliberately planned, specifically gifted, and lovingly placed on earth by the Master Craftsman."
Sunday, April 05, 2009
Everything in the universe begins with and revolves around two things: words and thoughts. These two elements are divine gifts created by God and given to man. They form the creative substance that molds and shapes the destiny of humanity. Each of us becomes the person we are, chooses the direction we take, and accomplishes everything we do based on these two primary elements.
Just as in every seed, there is life-giving power that resides in every spoken word. This principle illustrates how the spiritual law of incubation and manifestation works. Everything you see in the natural began as a spiritual seed—that is, as a thought.
We are told in 2 Peter 1:3-4 that God, in His infinite wisdom, has already given us all things pertaining to life (the Wycliffe version says, "all things of His God-like virtue") that we might partake of His divine nature. Included in this celestial equipping are divine thoughts and inspired words.
As a spiritual being created in the image of God (see Genesis 1:26) your spiritual genes hold the creative power to frame your personal world by the thoughts and words you think and speak, which are divine tools given for your creative use. All you are, experience, and ultimately achieve can be traced back to how you have made use of these two simple, yet vastly powerful, tools—your words and thoughts.
What Occupies Your Mind Determines What Eventually Fills Your Mouth
The power of the spoken word is one of life's greatest mysteries. All that you will ever be or accomplish hinges on how you choose to govern what comes out of your mouth. By what you allow to occupy your mind and mouth, you can either bless your life to great heights of success or send it orbiting into realms of failure, sadness, and discontentment.
This is why Proverbs tells us,
"For as he thinks in his heart, so is he" (Proverbs 23:7), and urges, "Guard your heart above all else, for it determines the course of your life" (Proverbs 4:23).Jesus followed suit by declaring,
"For whatever is in your heart determines what you say. A good person produces good things from the treasury of a good heart, and an evil person produces evil things from the treasury of an evil heart" (Matthew 12:34-35).What occupies your mind determines what eventually fills your mouth; your outer world showcases all that has dominated—and at times subjugated—your inner world. Because the law of cause and effect is continually at work, there is always an inner cause for every outer effect. Your outer world is a direct result of your inner world.
Every circumstance in life is a result of a choice—and every choice is the result of a thought. All those things that fill your mind hold the keys to your reality. Your thoughts provide the fuel for your words, and your words provide the fuel for your world.
It is paramount that you become the master of your thoughts. The greatest man has become so by the scrupulous attention he gives to controlling what goes into his mind and what comes out of his mouth.
"Be careful for nothing; but in every thing by prayer and supplication with
thanksgiving let your requests be made known unto God. And the peace of God, which passeth all understanding, shall keep your hearts and minds through Christ Jesus.
Finally, brethren, whatsoever things are true, whatsoever things are honest, whatsoever things are just, whatsoever things are pure, whatsoever things are lovely, whatsoever things are of good report; if there be any virtue, and if there be any praise, think on these things" (Philippians 4:6-8).

Al Thomas heard a powerful message on the Kingdom of God. The Holy Spirit began to speak to Him and he felt compelled to seek the Father concerning some of the revelation he had just heard. This is what God told him.
God said: "Many of My people are in bondage thinking (falsely) that they are failing Me. They pray, read My Word, etc., yet as the years roll on, discouragement rears its head, then guilt and shame become more than acquaintances, not to mention the harassment of the devil's condemnation. I have some powerful keys for My sheep to avoid this snare."
God Said: "Instead of Thinking You are Failing, Dwell on How Much I Love You"
"This is a truth that must be grasped by all of My children or they will never be able to truly be free. It saddens Me that many of My children say, 'God loves me,' but haven't truly accepted it. When you know you are loved by Me, there is a great freedom, a joy, and a sense of 'No matter what happens to me, I will be OK.' My Son did not say the truth will set you free. He said, 'You will know the truth, and the truth will set you free' John 8:32.
"You are greatly loved, more so than you could ever comprehend. Each of My children will enter their mansion (John 14:2) accepted in the Beloved (Ephesians 1:6). I have received you as a son/daughter, period. Stop looking at your imperfections and study My Word to see how much I love you (Romans 8:35-39). I think of you affectionately every day."
God Said: "Dwell on the Revelation that I Loved You First"
"There is this strong undercurrent in much of My Church that if you don't please Me in all that you do, then (you feel) in some way I simply don't love you like you think I would (because you had some kind of failure). Be careful, I am not saying you shouldn't be obedient or submit to Me and crucify your flesh. But, the work of sanctification is an ongoing process (2 Corinthians 3:17-18; Ephesians 5:26).
Yet no matter how much you do or not do for Me, I will love you the same —unequivocally. That doesn't mean you should be lazy, but who of you completely measures up? None of you, but that is why My Son came to die for you (Philippians 3:12)."
God Said: "The Devil Wants You to Think I Don't Completely Love You"
"Did you know that the devil can get you to think of a certain Scripture...to fool you? He tried it with My Son (Matthew 4:5-6), so he will try it with you. One of the Scriptures that he uses to condemn many of you is Revelation 2:4: "Nevertheless I have something against you, because thou hast left thy first love."
"In the two verses before this one, My Son highly compliments the Church for good works, patience, not putting up with evil people and for being strong and not fainting. But (and here is the truth many miss), you can work hard, be long suffering, resist evil, etc., and still miss the depth of My love for you. You see, I am not saying the fault is because you don't love me enough...My Son is saying, 'You don't know (or have forgotten) how much I love you!' He loves you first...and that is the first love! (1 John 4:19)."
God Said: "Dwell on My Son Being Your Husband, Not a Legalistic Tyrant"
"My prophet Hosea said, 'Therefore, behold, I will allure her, bring her into the wilderness and speak kindly to her. Then I will give her vineyards from there, and the valley of Achor as a door of hope. And she will sing there as in the days of her youth, as in the day when she came up from the land of Egypt. "It will come about in that day," declares the LORD, "that you will call Me husband, and will no longer call Me Baali (Master)"' (Hosea 2:14-16).
"Above all, My Son Jesus longs to be your Lover. Once you know you are loved, a great weight will be lifted, and then no matter what happens, you will always be convinced that I love you madly. Child, I will continue to love you. As you digest this great truth, then you will truly start to enter freedom and joy. You belong to Me and My Son, and we love you dearly. I loved you first. You will never be able to love Me more than I love you. So, just accept it. Once you do, you will automatically want to love Me back."
God Said: "Stop Feeling Guilty for Not Spending Quality Time with Me"
"Don't misunderstand; of course I want you to spend time with Me. But many think I am mad at them. So many of My children have simply forgotten how much I dearly love them. Instead of feeling guilty for not loving Me enough, firmly grasp how much I love you. Yes, some have distanced themselves from Me because of offences and false brethren, but they misunderstand that I have never stopped loving them (although My heart breaks and longs for them to return to Me).
"My greatest wish is for My children to get to the place where they grasp the revelation of the intense love I have for them. My love conquers everything (1 Corinthians 13). In the book of Galatians 2:6-9, My servant Paul speaks of Peter, James and John. If anyone had a special place in My heart it was these men.
"When My Son walked on earth they were His closest friends. Later they were called the pillars of the Church. Paul was speaking about Peter, and about all the leaders of the early Church, when inspired to write, 'Whatever they were, it makes no difference to me; God shows personal favoritism to no one.'
"I want you to tell yourself (some need to shout it, repeat it daily, and get it in their heart), 'The Bible says I am as loved and as important to God as Peter, James and John.' Never ask or think or doubt again how much I love you."
"Now, what did you say your problem was?"

God's love doesn't depend on what we do or what we don't do. He simply loves us regardless.
