WFJ: Good rest to give Me first place!

17 September 2011 4 Comments

(Words From Jesus): “Your inspiration come from spending time with Me in the early morning, before the world around you wakes up and starts moving and you get pulled away by the many things that you think you must do. That’s why it’s so important that you go to sleep early at night, because the time that you waste at night, it’s time that you take away from Me in the morning. You need good rest to give Me first place in your life!

I’m the Author and Finisher of your faith and, without Me, you really don’t have the divine inspiration that you need to touch people’s lives with My Spirit of love! To have My Spirit and to live a Spirit-filled life, you need to spend enough time with Me in the morning, but to have that time with Me in the morning, you need to get some good rest at night, and to get that rest, you need to go to sleep early! When you are so tired that you can hardly think, that’s when you need to rest the most, but the enemy of mankind has invented things that keep them awake late at night, so that they don’t get the rest they need and are always nervous and uptight during the day! This comes from not having enough sleep at night …

You need a good balance in your life, not only to eat well and drink enough water during the day, but also to sleep well at night and have enough rest so you can get rid of all that your body and spirit don’t need from the things that you have absorbed during the day. Learn to discipline yourself and your life will be much more balanced. You will have more inspiration from spending time with Me in the early morning, and you will have more time for writing and helping people develop their faith and trust in Me.

“The words that I speak unto you, they are spirit and life” (John 6:63), for they come straight from My Spirit and speak directly to your life. That’s what you need the most and foremost! That’s the “one thing needful, which shall not be taken away from you” (Luke 10:42).

There’s nothing more important for you that spending time with Me first thing in the morning, and I want to help you come back to your “first love”… I cannot bless your work unless it’s submitted to My first place of priority in your life, so If you want a successful life and want to prosper in all you do, you must put Me first and give Me first place in your life! I love you.

“In the morning, rising up a great while before day, Jesus went out into a solitary place, and there He prayed.” (Mark 1:35)

“I do nothing of myself; but as my Father has taught me, I speak these things.” (John 8:28 )

“You shall meditate on this book day and night, that you may observe to do according to all that is written therein: for then you shall make your way prosperous, and then you shall have good success.” (Josh 1:8)

“His delight is in the word of the Lord; and in His word does he meditate day and night. He shall be like a tree planted by the rivers of water, that brings forth his fruit in his season; his leaf also shall not wither; and whatever he does shall prosper.” (Psalm 1:2-3)
