Relax! Chill Out!! Enjoy!!! February 24 Notes From Papa via Paul Gray
To My unconditionally loved child, who I am so very fond of,
You have been working so hard to please me for so long. And all along I have been totally pleased with you. You are My child. There’s nothing you can do to make me more pleased with you.
I gave you the very righteousness of My Son Jesus, who I am One with. You have and you are the righteousness of Christ. Why would you ever believe you could become more righteous?
I made you pure, holy, without fault, innocent, perfect and one with Jesus, the Holy Spirit and Me when I raised you from spiritual death to become a new creation with new life in Christ as I raised you with Jesus during the finished work at the cross. Why would you ever strive to “be holy?”
As Jesus is in the world, so are you… right now! You are just like Jesus in the world you live in. Those are My words, My declaration. Why would you ever try to “be like Jesus?”
You have the very mind of Christ. I know, I gave it to you! All the wisdom and knowledge there is, is available to you. You can ask Me for wisdom and be confident that I will give it to you. All My promises are “yes” in Christ Jesus and that’s where you are— in Christ Jesus!
I know you are tired, worn out and burned out on religion. So, come to Me. Get away with Me and you’ll recover your life. I’ll show you how to take a real rest. Walk with Me and work with Me— watch how I do it. Learn the unforced rhythms of grace. I won’t lay anything heavy or ill-fitting on you. Keep company with Me and you’ll learn to live freely and lightly.
Let’s walk together today as I will and work in you. It’s My will and My work. I am in you and you are in Me. Relax. Chill out. Let go of religion and it’s striving, doing, comparing, working and trying-to-measure-up. Just you and Me. I am enough.
My Grace is enough… it is sufficient for you. You know that Grace is a person, Jesus. Grace is the face Love wears when We come in contact with Our children. You are learning that We are always in contact with Our children. We are in you, with you and closer than the very air you breathe. In Us you live, move and have your being.
Actually, We know why you work and strive and try… We just don’t want you to, and We want you to know you don’t have to. We know “religion and works” is hard to let go of. We have seen Our children struggle with that since the garden. We know that… and now you know Our good news! The good news is that We have done it all. It is finished. You are right with Us, in Us and We are in you… Christ in you, the hope of glory.
Relax… enjoy… let’s celebrate today who you are in Christ!
