Ending Your Effort-filled Relationship With Survival
(Two Lovers -Two Trees)
Papa God shared...
The same fruit begets the same fruit in your life. You have to be willing to start eating from a different tree. When you eat from the Tree of Life, your taste buds change and develop. Again, life in Me is about feasting! So, wouldn't you say it's not through your own self-effort and disciplined ways? It is a matter of developing new tastebuds by changing what your eating and feasting on?
Feasting on Goodness
This is a true Immersion! Out with the old, in with the New! the New Covenant that is! I have fully supplied everything you need. It's just most of you, My children aren't eating enough of My goodness. You're still addicted to the measly old "mind-rations" of the "do-it-yourself" tree. Habits are hard to break! Tastebuds are even harder... Why do you think I coined the phrase, "Taste and see that I am good?!" Don't you think I was giving you clues right there..? ;)
My Kingdom is Fun Not Stingy
My Kingdom is so much more fun than man makes it out to be! As if I really want you eating "army rations," ha! Lol! I am an abundant God! Not a stingy God! The only reason your tasting "stinginess" Is because you keep feasting from the wrong tree with its doctrines. Therefore you experience lack and the curse of it.
The Structure of a Mindset
Mindsets are a structure. Think of your mind like a dinner plate. You place that plate before one tree or the other... The DIY tree or the Tree of Life. Each tree will give you what you ask for because you are My Son and Daughter, meaning it will yield to you its fruit. But, many of you are still aligning and siding with the wrong tree, and you continue to suffer from its fruit.
The Power of Life
The power of life is in its placement and alignment. Often, that's all you're missing, My people. It's a simple adjustment to choose My path over yours. Take a moment and still yourself... Stop listening and being led by the promptings of the flesh. Arrest yourself and sit still... Wait... Now let your spirit do the speaking.
I'm In The Whisper
It's a subtle thing... to hear a whisper. It requires rest and trust. Why do you think I chose to address you in a whisper? What does hearing a whisper require? Most find it challenging to hear My still small voice? Why is this? They find it easier to do things themselves than to slow down and "try" to hear Me. They are not hard of hearing, nor do I lack in words. The dilemma is in the seed within them, dictating for them to return to the tree and voice that feeds them. The DIY tree. The egoic fruit that denies Me.
Dinner Dates with the Wrong Relationship
The survival of the tree is within the seed you eat. Law beckons you to keep reproducing itself. And I want to set you free from that. It's time you go on a spiritual cleanse and break your addiction to that old rotten tree! Its fruit is a relic of insecurity. Producing inner idols within yourself, deconstructing your identity.
It's time to bag that old tree. Chop it up and dispose of its ways. Release My fire, and I'll consume what remains- It's branched out dictations- rooted in manipulation. Put a barricade at its pathways and refuse it; no longer partake from it! This is how you'll make your break! It's like a bad relationship. Nothing good is coming out of it. The hopes for it are an illusion, holding you hostage in its grip, just like a religious spirit. Blocking you from your true freedom. A counterfeit love- you're threatened to earn... you learn and adjust to being lowly, or else! Submitted and subordinate to this wrong relationship, holding your livelihood captive.
The Age-old Trap of Impatience
(We have witnessed many relationships shipwrecked by jumping ahead of God. They wanted what they wanted, dictated to by their own impatience! Fearing that God would not grant them their desires. Receiving delay as a denial. Ignoring their spiritual heart, sending red flags. Impatience won the day! At least for one day, that is... We had a certain friend experiencing the effects of impatience in her new marriage, along with many others we've encountered. -Amy)
This is what Papa shared in regards to our friend...
The pain she is experiencing is the pains brought forth by her own stubborn choices. The guy she chose was not yet ready to get married, but she thought she could fix him and help him with a "how hard could this be" mentality. Now, she is learning through pain from eating from this fruit-internally. The fruit of the DIY tree, instead of following My peace, eating from My tree of life. She feared that she was getting too old and that I wasn't coming through, so off she went to pick fruit off the "instant" tree. Isn't this the same old, age-old agenda of the flesh and fruit of impatience? The same trapping that Sara fell into, begetting an Ishmael outcome. Paying the cost herself, along with many others. However, I am redemptive and always good. Many choose their own path before trusting My goodness enough to follow Me even when the timing doesn't make sense.
This is what everything comes down to.
You will either have a relationship with the DIY tree... picking and eating "instant gratifications." Enticed by its illusionary fantasy fruit. Or you will choose to be in a relationship with Me eating from My eternal tree of wisdom, light, provision, understanding, and peace, etc... One is a relationship with Self, working it out through sweat, toil, and annoyances. After the "fruity" sensation fades... One is a relationship with Me that will last you all of eternity. A blissed-out experience that never ends! No more going at it alone, but set in the right frame of mind and life. If you can only see in part... can you really trust yourself with these life long decisions and choices, could you? Wouldn't you say you need to choose a different route and come back for assistance?
Life was not meant to be lived apart from Me. This is why mankind may accomplish great things that fail to satisfy. I alone am the one who can truly satisfy you. Out of that comes worlds of enjoyment, not the other way around.
Matt 6:33 (NAS) But seek first the Kingdom of God and His righteousness( face to face likeness & generosity), and all these things will be provided for you.
Ps. 16:11 (AMP) You will show me the path of life; In Your presence is fullness of joy; In Your right hand there are pleasures forevermore.
MSG)Now you’ve got my feet on the life path, all radiant from the shining of your face. Ever since you took my hand, I’m on the right way.
Psalms 34:8(Tpt) Drink deeply of the pleasures of this God.[a] Experience for yourself the joyous mercies he gives to all who turn to hide themselves in him.
