Stay with me today and listen to what I have to say. Many will say to me, “Lord! Lord!” But I will say to them, “I never knew you.” You say that you love me, but you have yet to spend the time to get to know me and know my heart for you. I have so much I want to say to you, but you don’t give me the time of day. Hear my words, those are not condemning words, but words of love reaching out to you today.
Where is your heart today? Where is your mind? Where is your joy for living? Why have you left me behind? I am the one you need the most to soothe and comfort your mind. There is nothing on this earth that will satisfy your life more than spending time with me. I will bring the greatest satisfaction to your soul and mind; you need nothing else but me.
You wrestle within your thoughts day after day, yet you bring none of them to me. You will not cast your cares on me so I can soothe your mind. Why do you torture your heart and soul and not bring them to me? Is it because you have no faith in me and you cannot trust in me? It breaks my heart to see you suffering alone, but I cannot make you come to me. This is a choice you must make to find and follow me.
My canopy over you is love. My life was poured out for you, what more could you want? The very breath you breathe is a love gift from me. I provide for all your needs and I give you what you need each day. Why is your heart so far from me? Why do I have to beg and plead with you to open up your eyes to see me clearly?
The time approaches and the end of days is near. Turn from your wicked ways and let your choice be clear. Will you choose me over your sin, or choose to wallow in your wickedness again and again. I’ve given all that I can give and your choice must be clear. Choose this day whom you will follow; a life lived in holy living, or a life lived in fear.
Open up your hands to me and let me make things right. Let me be the choice you make to honor me with your life. Going separate ways will only bring sorrow to your life. Let me infuse you with new life today and give you a brand-new start. Nothing would stand in your way, as you choose to follow in the ways of YAHWEH. Give all your troubles to me and let me take the burden off of you. You suffer needlessly day after day, but all it takes is you putting your hand in mine and saying, yes, to me.
Matthew 7:22-23 New King James Version
22 Many will say to Me in that day, ‘Lord, Lord, have we not prophesied in Your name, cast out demons in Your name, and done many wonders in Your name?’ 23 And then I will declare to them, ‘I never knew you; depart from Me, you who practice lawlessness!’
Romans 15:13 The Voice
13 I pray that God, the source of all hope, will infuse your lives with an abundance of joy and peace in the midst of your faith so that your hope will overflow through the power of the Holy Spirit.
Matthew 16:24-26 The Voice
24 (to His disciples) If you want to follow Me, you must deny yourself the things you think you want. You must pick up your cross and follow Me. 25 The person who wants to save his life must lose it, and she who loses her life for Me will find it. 26 Look, does it make sense to truly become successful, but then to hand over your very soul? What is your soul really worth?
Ephesians 6:12 New Living Translation
12 For we are not fighting against flesh-and-blood enemies, but against evil rulers and authorities of the unseen world, against mighty powers in this dark world, and against evil spirits in the heavenly places.
Joshua 24:15 New Living Translation
15 But if you refuse to serve the Lord, then choose today whom you will serve. Would you prefer the gods your ancestors served beyond the Euphrates? Or will it be the gods of the Amorites in whose land you now live? But as for me and my family, we will serve the Lord.”
