Jesus said, “Remain in me, and I will remain in you. No branch can bear fruit by itself; it must remain in the vine. Neither can you bear fruit unless you remain in Me. I am the vine; you are the branches. If a man remains in me and I in him, he will bear much fruit; apart from Me you can do nothing.” -John 15:4-5
My precious one, this is a time when My Spirit is moving in great waves across the face of the earth. I am sending both sons and daughters into the harvest fields, to sow, water, and reap in measures unknown up until this time. Is this something you would like to do? If you are willing, I will gladly empower you to reap the treasures of My Son’s sacrifice.
Many souls will be brought forward in freedom and joy around My throne. Only consider this, the strength of your work in My kingdom is connected to your ability to first receive. Once there were two sisters, one named Martha and the other named Mary. As Mary sat at My feet to listen and worship, her sister became irritated. As it is written, ‘But Martha was distracted by all the preparations that had to be made. She came to him and asked, ‘Lord, don’t you care that my sister has left me to do the work by myself? Tell her to help me!’ Martha was caught up in the work before she was caught up in Me; if she was caught up in Me first, then she would have happily embraced her work, so her sister could also sit at My feet.
So, you see, it is important that you make time to sit at My feet and receive renewed strength before you get on your feet to do the ministry. And even the ministry is something I would rather you do with Me, than for Me. Let us walk together; let us run together; let us work together. Lean into Me for I am near.
Luke 10:40-42 “But Martha was distracted by all the preparations that had to be made. She came to him and asked, “Lord, don’t you care that my sister has left me to do the work by myself? Tell her to help me!” “Martha, Martha,” the Lord answered, “you are worried and upset about many things, but only one thing is needed. Mary has chosen what is better, and it will not be taken away from her.”
Song of Solomon 1:4. “Take me away with you–let us hurry! Let the king bring me into his chambers. We rejoice and delight in you; we will praise your love more than wine. How right they are to adore you!”
