I have given you power. Within you resides the power to have an abundant life. What you choose to focus your attention on will be magnified in its power over you. Focus your attention on Me, the only safe option. Anything else that you allow to control you will destroy you. When you fix your eyes on the unseen realm, instead of staring at the painful circumstances or lack that you are experiencing in the natural realm, you will find that abundance is the truth.
I understand the way you feel when you are in agonizing pain at the hands of those that do not recognize who you are or understand what they do, struggle against temptation and wonder where I am in the midst of it all. I do. I will show you the way if you will follow Me.
Yes, there is a time to mourn, but there is also a time to dance. Rise up by putting a song of praise in your heart and My Words in your mouth. Stand firm in the liberty I give you by setting your mind on My Spirit; it will bring life and peace to you. Train your mind not to settle around the issues in your life that you are believing Me to change.
As a foreman studies the construction plans and gathers the building materials to prepare for creating what has been given to him in blue prints, so should you dig into My Word and apply it to your life. Why stand beside the half-finished project wailing that you do not have all that you need to finish? Did you not consider the cost of following Me, as I instructed, before you set to work? It will cost you everything. If you have lack, it is not on My end. What are you holding back from Me? I am the One that created the blue print for your life and it is I that have promised to be the Author and the Finisher. I have given you everything you need to complete the project I designed. I will provide every tool, every material and every helper that is needed.
If you are focusing your attention on point A, instead of on Me, you can miss hearing Me say what you need is at point B. Keep moving forward towards Me in love and trust.
Many of you are unable to receive what you need for the next step of the project because your hands are full of the stuff of life I have told you to take your hands off of. Let it go in order to receive from Me. I assure you, none of the lack you are experiencing is from My hands. I give life and life abundant and everything that is needed to accomplish all that I have commissioned you to do.
Check the blue print, make sure it is My Word. Check the foundation, make sure it is My life. Check your life, make sure you are holding nothing back. Your pain does not come from Me.
