WFJ: It’s My intimate time with you!

19 March 2011 3 Comments

(Prayer): Jesus, I love you with all of my heart, and I’m sorry for not spending more time listening to Your voice. I know this is what I need most of all, to be led by Your Spirit each day of my life! Please, forgive me! I need You to guide me, as I seek Your face at each step of my way! Lord, I love You, I worship You and I desire to live in Your presence and Spirit, to partake of Your nature each day of my life! Please speak to me, I need to hear Your voice and get Your perspective on my situation, where I’m now standing and where You want me to go. In Your precious holy name, Jesus, I ask.

(WFJ): “Make room, My child! Make room around you! Make room in your day, your time, your life. Make room for My intimate time with you! Let Me be at the forefront of your focus and interests and let Me lead and guide you in the way that you need to go! If you want to make progress and have success in your endeavors, you need to put Me first in your life, and not let your work, your ministry, your ambitions and all the other things you want to do, even if it’s for My Kingdom, stand in the way of My daily time with you!

You must understand that it’s not “your” time with Me, but it’s “My” time with you, and that’s what’s important! In other words, you might think you are spending time with Me, because you are reading Christian literature, or listening to Spirit-filled music, or whatever else you do to spend time in My presence, but in reality it’s only when you really focus and pay attention to the things that I speak to your heart, personally and intimately, that you’re really experiencing My presence and glory in a powerful way in your life!

It needs to be Me speaking to your heart, not the other way around. It can even become a work of the flesh, “trying” to spend time with Me and “doing” all the things that you usually do during that time, like a ritual. What I really want from you is your attention and listening ear!

“He that has ears to hear, let him hear” (Matthew 11:15)! “He that has an ear, let him hear what the Spirit is saying (Rev. 2:11, etc.)! This is something that I have repeated over and over in My word, constantly calling people to “Incline your ear, and come to Me: hear, and your soul shall live” (Is. 55:3), because that’s what I really want from My children above all, to be people who listen to My voice and “are led by My Spirit” (Rom. 8:14) every day!

When all of My children around the world will have learned to listen to My Spirit and follow My instructions, then “My Kingdom will come, and My will shall be done, on earth as it is in Heaven” (Matthew 6:10), and you will see Me rule and reign forever in a “new heaven and a new earth” (Rev.21.1), because all things will be restored to the original plan that I had made for My children at the beginning of time!

This is what I want My children to learn above all, to hear from Me and follow Me each day of their lives! And I need you to teach it by example, by posting the “Words From Jesus that I speak to you, so that those who read your posts will have a model to follow and learn to put Me first in their lives! You cannot send others where you are not going. To be a good leader, you must fist be a good follower, by walking with them to where I want them to go. So, be a good leader, by leading the way to where you want others to go!

It needs to be a daily experience of My presence in your life! Not trying to spend time with Me, but sitting quietly in My presence and letting Me spend time with you intimately, as I personally speak to your heart the “words of eternal life” (John 6:68) that will fill you with both My “spirit and life”  (John 6:63)! I love you.

    Thank you Renato. So often we engage in so much activity for Jesus (or so we think) and loose our way. Activity does not equal a listening heart. Nor does believing we are doing what we do to please Him amount to a hill of beans if we have not quietened our spirit to hear His Spirit and to hear His call. It is our state of being, who we are becoming in Him that is of His supreme interest; that we truly love Him and adore Him and listen to His heart. Then, what we do will come into alignment with Him and His instruction for us moment by moment, now and through eternity. Thank you for loving each one of us in His Holy name as you share Words From Jesus. Stay the “Narrow Road”. Let the past be the past! Blessings, Brother Ben

    Hello Dear Brother Renato!

    This is such a timely, needful and instructive ORDER and Word From Jesus. THANK YOU for your obedience to post this. And THANK YOU especially for getting to the ultimate and number one priority of our lives: as Jesus said, “His time with us” and allowing Him to be King and Ruler of our everything as He literally breathes into us His very life, truth and Spirit so that He may demonstrate to the world through us His Kingdom come upon this earth as it is in heaven.

    And isn’t this attentive oneness at Jesus’s feet what all of our hearts are truly and desperately crying out for and without it we are bankrupt! This is His COMMANDING ORDER to bring back His divine order to our lives. The world is in a chaotic mess and this is the answer.


    Love in Jesus,
