God Is Responsible!!! January 9 Notes From Papa

To My special child, whom I am continually growing in grace,
I want you to know up front that I am responsible for your spiritual growth… not you! Religion has propagated the lie that each individual is responsible for their own spiritual growth.
Depending in which denomination, para-church or religious organization one belongs to, they are taught some combination of “spiritual disciplines” which are said to be what will bring about desired spiritual growth. These can include (but are certainly not limited to) prayer, fasting, meditation, Bible study, serving, attending religious services, giving, witnessing and the like.) Those “disciplines” in and of themselves aren’t bad… but they certainly won’t produce spiritual growth. That kind of thinking believes that by a person’s own effort, they can grow and improve. That’s actually the false self, ego or flesh— which are all illusions and are not the real you.
Who is responsible for a child’s growth? Its parents are responsible for shelter, protection, food, clothing, educational opportunities and the like. Children can’t provide those things. But even parents can’t affect a child’s height. Physical growth… and spiritual growth are both provided by Me!
The “Fruit of the Spirit”, which are character traits that all flow from My pure agape love that always does what is best for the other, includes joy, peace, patience, kindness, goodness, gentleness, faith and Spirit-power. No one can produce them, grow in them or mature in them by their own self-improvement plan. The Fruit of the Spirit can only be produced and manifested in a person by the Holy Spirit! Your part is simply to be available and aware that you are living in seamless union, or oneness, with Me. Listen to Me and let Me teach you. I will! Be aware, ask and allow Christ in you to live as you in relationship to the world and everything in it. Responsibility means having the ability to respond. Respond to Me.
Grace is My supernatural divine ability to enable you to be and do all that I have envisioned for you since before the foundation of the world. You were conceived by grace, given life by grace and you live, move and have your being by the power of My grace! Relax, rest and enjoy the experience of Me providing your spiritual growth. It’s a much easier and the only effective means of growing. Grow in grace!
