Seek me first with all your heart, soul, mind and strength. Through this seeking, all else will be added to you. Abide in Me and I will abide in you (then you will understand the beauty of how our God mends the pieces of our shattered hearts to wholeness), no branch can bear fruit by itself; it must remain in the vine. Neither can you bear fruit unless you remain in Me. John 15:4
Learning to abide is a process. Each day we that we rest in Him, we live and love well.
Picture yourself as a bird flying high, flying high above all the chaos and those who reach to pull you down to their immature way of thinking and rebellion. Trust in the Spirit of the Father who abides in you. Awaken your heart to Him, giving each new day to Him to hold you up, above the conflict. Trust there is a greater plan and He knows best. When conflicted, pray about everything while giving thanks to the Lord Jesus for your conflict. It has led you closer to Him.
It is in this closeness with Him, this daily moment to moment giving of your heart to Him, that the Potter reshapes the heart, the soul, the mind and you come into the new mind, into alignment with the likeness of Christ Jesus (the anointed One). Above the chaos, flying on the heights, you receive empowerment through the light of the world to come down into the chaos of others, maintaining balance of peace and God’s presence with you to shine the light out to others which is flows from deep within your soul.
Our Creator has promised a life of abundance in the glorious riches of Jesus Christ when we seek Him first, above all things. It might not look like what you expect, but stay the course, trust Him alone in everything, sit alone with Him until you are alone with Him in a crowd of thousands. God will honor your devotion, your heart and He will make Himself and the Way known. Believe Him, this is what He asks of you.
You are the future of what comes next. In every breath you take, you breathe in life or death. In every thought, word and action life or death is chosen. Breathe life so you may give life! Trust your Heavenly Father, the only One able to shine light in and through you.
