Early & Often- Insight from July 21, 2017

Son, welcome. Welcome to my presence. I never said it would be easy. It was never meant to be. If it were easy, many would follow me. It's the most difficult thing you'll ever do and it's the most rewarding thing you'll ever do.

I want you early and often. I want you to pray early and often. I want your heart.

When I am first in your life, here's what I expect: wake up before anyone else; pray first; commit the day to doing my will; seek me with all your heart, mind, soul, and strength; spend uninterrupted time with me; pray for others; trust me; take steps in faith; know that I will catch you; know that I have your best interests at heart; think eternally; seek direction, wisdom, and discernment; love others; show mercy; be kind; first fruits- tithes and offerings; love me above all else.

When I am first in your life, here's what you can expect: peace; joy; love; patience; kindness; goodness; faithfulness; gentleness; self control; ability to hear me; see things others don't; wisdom, discernment, direction; financial provision; strong family values; influence; strong character; insight; a strong marriage.

Son, you want this as much as I want this for you. Seek me first and watch how I take care of you. Don't cut our time short. This time is more important than anything else you do. When you align with my will, everything else will fall into it's proper place.

Welcome back. I look forward to to seeing you grow and helping you along the way.
