As Soon As You Let Go
(#080 from Suffer Well Devotional Series©)
Oh My child. Will you believe Me if I tell you the truth? Won’t you believe that I only speak truth? How quickly you say, “Yes,” yet your sin says otherwise. Do you understand? Your sin is when you do other then the truth I gave you, which is evidence of your unbelief, your doubt that I speak only truth. The cure for this, for all sin, is inside of you. There are no exterior solutions; nothing from the outside can help. All sin is a heart (mind) issue.
Would you believe Me if I told you that you were already 100% whole, perfected in total joy, total peace, and total contentment? If you could see what I see, you would certainly rejoice. Would you like to come and see? Are you sure? Here is the key to the door. Let go. Let go! It is really easy. Remember, I speak only truth. It is easy, so calm yourself.
Take My yoke upon you and learn of Me, for I Am gentle [meek] and humble [lowly] in heart, and you will find rest [relief, ease, refreshment, recreation, and blessed quiet] for your souls. For My yoke is wholesome [useful, good—not harsh, hard, sharp, or pressing, but comfortable, gracious, and pleasant], and My burden is light and easy to be borne. (Matthew 11:29-30)
Be still now and listen. Your anger is a choice; your resentment is a choice; your bitterness is a choice; your unforgiveness is a choice; and your self-righteousness is a choice. “What is the answer, the easy answer to all of this,” you cry? Choose otherwise! I am He who equips. I have given you My Son; the power to choose is now within you. You said you believed Me, so I will say it again. I have given you the power to choose. Though the choice may very well “feel” like a death, it is truly life being disguised by your deceptive feelings. Listen to Me. There are no victims in My family. I say again, there are no victims in My family! Give all of your burdens; all of your fears; all of your pain; and all of your pride to Me. Leave them with Me. You have no more excuses. All sin will be considered as unbelief. Choose wisely and be warned; I will change you if you don’t make the choice on your own. Yes, I care that much.Click to listen highlighted text!
