Mark it Well
(#206 from Suffer Well Devotional Series©)
This is what happens when you forget about the patterns and blueprints for life (consciousness) I have given you. This is how it feels when you abandon My Covenant, forsaking My Law. So now that your misfortunes have reproved you and your afflictions rebuked you, will you turn back to Me?
How bad is it? How bitter is the feeling of the void that exists between us? Child, it is you who left, not Me. It is you who decided to go your own way. Mark it well, the feeling you feel this very moment (thoughts other than completeness in Me): “Bitterness?” “Hopelessness?” “Fear?” “Resentment?” “Doubt?” “Pride?” Have I created these in you? Do I destroy those whom My Son saved?
Your solution is in My word loved one. I have made it so that only one thing cures all ailments of the mind; there is only one antidote to the five-sense world. And that is. . .awe! Yes, a reverent awe of Me! If you had given Me proper position in your life--Me first, Me second, Me third, and Me last, then you would have already learned that your battles belong to Me. Have I not declared, "Seek Me first!" (Matthew 6:33) Do not seek things from Me; rather, seek Me! Either I Am the very thing that will fill every desire of your heart (center of intellect), or I Am insufficient and you need more than Me. It is good for you to wrestle with this reality loved one, for when you emerge from the battle, you will be free! Do you understand this pattern yet? I give joy, peace, love and more to those who follow the blueprint.
“Bitterness?” “Hopelessness?” “Fear?” “Resentment?” “Doubt?” “Pride?” Every manifestation of mind strife is also a pattern I’ve created. But, they are not intended for wallowing in by those who bear My mark, the mark of the redeemed. For those who claim I do not exist, all of these mindsets of bondage, and internal feelings of turmoil and discord, shall follow them into eternity. But for you, these “feelings” act as guardians! They are guardians given to you as a measure of My love, because the death contained in their emotional energy drives you back to the chief pattern; Awe!
Listen to words spoken to you through Jeremiah the Prophet: "Your wickedness will punish you; your backsliding will rebuke you. Consider then and realize how evil and bitter it is for you when you have forsaken Yahweh your Mighty One and have no awe of Me, declares Yahweh, Yahweh Almighty." (Jeremiah 2:19)
