The Great Adventure of NEW LIFE! June 21 Notes from Papa via Paul Gray~
To My wonderfully special child, whom I’m especially fond of,
Sometimes you have tried your hardest to do what’s “right” and you’ve expended a lot of time, effort and energy only to find out that you couldn’t do it… it didn’t work… or it wasn’t accepted.
When that happens, you tend to gravitate towards despair because your enemy (the deceiver) seizes his opportunity to lie to you.
You hear whispers that “seem” to be your own voice admitting things like “I’ve failed again”; “I’ve lost it… I can no longer do…”; “I’m not good enough… not competent…”; “something’s wrong with me… I’m flawed.” When you take those thoughts as your own, you become depressed and are susceptible to even more insidious temptations and accusations.
Your enemy tends to start with a shred of truth… then come his lies. It is true that no matter how hard you work, strive and try, you can never ultimately achieve what you think will be “right and enough to please me.” I set things up to work that way because I want you to absolutely know that you are My dearly loved child whom I absolutely love unconditionally and have already done everything to assure you that I am eternally pleased with you.
I set things up like that so that you won’t become prideful that you have earned My love and approval and so that you will totally trust Me… not your own abilities and efforts.
And I set things up to work like this for your great benefit so that you can experience the exhilarating joy and peace and delight in resting in Me and letting Me do whatever it is that I want in you, as you and through you!
I delight in using your body, your personality, your mind, your sense of humor, your talents, abilities and skills to accomplish My work and My purposes.
Once you have a little taste of Me working through you and as you, it will be like a huge supernatural adrenaline rush that overshadows even your best accomplishments without Me!
So now, cease your striving. Stop your worrying. Do not fear. Resist the evil one’s damning accusations and condemnation. Relax. Come to Me. Ask Me, the Holy Spirit living in you, to pour out My power in you, as you and through you… to do whatever it is that I want today. Then your part is to enjoy! We’re on a great adventure of My life (new life in Christ) today! Enjoy!
