Hello My Beloved,
I want to talk to you briefly about G.I.F.T.s. I am the Gift Giver, and I want you to know that I have given you many good gifts and you, my beloved, are gifted. What is a G.I.F.T? It is a strategy to keep your heart and mind stayed on me and to keep you obedient to my word when I say:
Pray without ceasing. In every thing give thanks: for this is the will of God in Christ Jesus concerning you.Quench not the Spirit. Despise not prophesyings. Prove all things; hold fast that which is good.
1 Thessalonians 5:17-21
In every thing give thanks: for this is the will of God in Christ Jesus concerning you.
1 Thessalonians 5:18
And it came to pass, as he went to Jerusalem, that he passed through the midst of Samaria and Galilee. And as he entered into a certain village, there met him ten men that were lepers, which stood afar off: And they lifted up their voices, and said, Jesus, Master, have mercy on us. And when he saw them, he said unto them, Go shew yourselves unto the priests. And it came to pass, that, as they went, they were cleansed. And one of them, when he saw that he was healed, turned back, and with a loud voice glorified God, And fell down on his face at his feet, giving him thanks: and he was a Samaritan. And Jesus answering said, Were there not ten cleansed? but where are the nine? There are not found that returned to give glory to God, save this stranger. And he said unto him, Arise, go thy way: thy faith hath made thee whole.
Ye have not chosen me, but I have chosen you, and
ordained you, that ye should go and bring forth fruit, and that your
fruit should remain: that whatsoever ye shall ask of the Father in my name, he
may give it you.
Draw nigh to God, and he will draw nigh to you. Cleanse your hands, ye sinners; and purify your hearts, ye double minded.
Henceforth I call you not servants; for the servant knoweth not what his lord doeth: but I have called you friends; for all things that I have heard of my Father I have made known unto you.
The LORD hath appeared of old unto me, saying, Yea, I have loved thee with an everlasting love: therefore with lovingkindness have I drawn thee.
For where your treasure is, there will your heart be also.
Set your affection on things above, not on things on the earth.
The light of the body is the eye: if therefore thine eye be single, thy whole body shall be full of light.
23 But if thine eye be evil, thy whole body shall be full of darkness. If therefore the light that is in thee be darkness, how great is that darkness!
Walk in wisdom toward them that are without, redeeming the time.
See then that ye walk circumspectly, not as fools, but as wise, Redeeming the time, because the days are evil.
And that, knowing the time, that now it is high time to awake out of sleep: for now is our salvation nearer than when we believed.
Take heed. Use your G.I.F.T.s. Obey my Word.
Love, Abba Father
