I so desire to gather you together like a mother hen to her chicks. I so want to protect and shelter you from the coming storm, but there are things you must see and accomplish to weather the storm. There are things that I must show you and reveal what’s wrong with the society with which you live in. Your eyes need to be opened to the things that have blinded you and dulled your senses. Your minds have been seared by the oppression of sin in your society. You see, but you see through a glass that has been dirtied by sin.
Come to me and fall upon your knees and repent of the woeful ways in which you’ve lived. Ruination of your society has caused you to think little of me. You say you see me but you don’t think much of me. Where does your mind need to be dwelling? Where does your heart need to be? Camp out here with me for a while and listen to what my heart wants to share with you.
Many of you are exhausted from running after the things of this world. Many of you have tasted and seen my goodness surrounding you, yet you run back into the arms of the world. Where does your loyalty lie – with the world or me? Choose this day whom you will serve – the Father of Lies or me. You cannot serve two masters and I leave that choice up to you. You can continue to go your own way, but my love will not guide you in that way. You must choose which side you will serve.
Saturate yourself in my Word each day. Put it into your mind and heart like a vitamin you take each day. Let it change you and transform you, keeping you farther away from the grip of the enemy. The more you dwell in my presence, the more you will desire me and my ways. I have come to give you life to the fullest. Increase in my knowledge and understanding and let me bring your imagination alive with heavenly visions with me.
I will elevate your thinking and show you what you were meant to do while here on earth. I will show you how to walk through life in me. I will show you how to rule and reign with me. You were made for so much more, so spend your life with me. I will show you my ways and how to bring about the things in Heaven to the Earth. Become the stewards you were meant to be and walk in my authority here on earth.
Cut off your old desires and ways of living and live your life closer to me than ever before. You cannot have one foot in the world and still be following after me. Choose this day whom you will follow.
Luke 13:34 New Living Translation
34 “O Jerusalem, Jerusalem, the city that kills the prophets and stones God’s messengers! How often I have wanted to gather your children together as a hen protects her chicks beneath her wings, but you wouldn’t let me.
2 Corinthians 3:14 The Voice
14 Their minds became as hard as stones; for up to this day when they read the old covenant, the same veil continues to hide that glory; this veil is lifted only through the Anointed One.
Hebrews 5:11-14 The Voice
11 I have a lot more to say about this, but it may be hard for you to follow since you’ve become dull in your understanding. 12 By this time, you ought to be teachers yourselves, yet I feel like you want me to reteach you the most basic things that God wants you to know. It’s almost like you’re a baby again, coddled at your mother’s breast, nursing, not ready for solid food. 13 No one who lives on milk alone can know the ins and outs of what it means to be righteous and pursue justice; that’s because he is only a baby. 14 But solid food is for those who have come of age, for those who have learned through practice to distinguish good from evil.
1 Corinthians 13:12 New Living Translation
12 Now we see things imperfectly, like puzzling reflections in a mirror, but then we will see everything with perfect clarity. All that I know now is partial and incomplete, but then I will know everything completely, just as God now knows me completely.
Matthew 6:24 New Living Translation
24 “No one can serve two masters. For you will hate one and love the other; you will be devoted to one and despise the other. You cannot serve God and be enslaved to money.
Romans 12:2 New King James Version
2 And do not be conformed to this world, but be transformed by the renewing of your mind, that you may prove what is that good and acceptable and perfect will of God.
Joshua 24:15 New Century Version
15 But if you don’t want to serve the Lord, you must choose for yourselves today whom you will serve. You may serve the gods that your ancestors worshiped when they lived on the other side of the Euphrates River, or you may serve the gods of the Amorites who lived in this land. As for me and my family, we will serve the Lord.”
