Perfect Everything. - March 16

Be ye perfect, even as your Father in Heaven.

That was the aim I set before My disciples when I spoke to them on the Mount.

That is the aim I set before you and every follower of Mine to-day.

To achieve this you would be as God.

To aim at less would mean an unworthy standard.

To keep your gaze on this as your standard means that your eyes are fixed on the Heights of God, always directed above the difficulties and the lower aims and desires and standards of others round you.

The Real World. - March 17

Blessed are they that hear My Voice.

Deaf to My Voice man can so often be. Live, My children, more in the Unseen World. There, in the contemplation of Me, your whole nature becomes sensitive to My faintest whisper.

I have told you, I tell you again, the Unseen World is the real world. Realize more and more as you go through this earth-life that this is only a material-plane parenthesis. The real paragraph, chapter, Book of Life is the Spirit-Life.

This point of view will alter your idea of suffering, failure, and the work of life here. It will give you a new view of death. Birth begins the parenthesis, death closes it. Then back to real Life-History. Absorb this.

When you have done so, you will get that same idea about the various periods of your earth-life. Times of struggle; defeat; joy; failure; work; rest; success - Treat them all as parts of a parenthesis in the one Eternal Life of spiritual progress.

Joy from Sorrow. - March 18

I bind up the broken hearts with the cords wherewith men scourged Me in the Judgment Hall; with the whips of scorn wherewith Men have mocked My Love and Divinity down the ages.

Symbol, this, of the way in which, out of seeming obstacles, stepping-stones can be fashioned, and, out of trials undreamt-of, blessings can be wrought.

Share My Life with its longings and tears, with its Joys unspeakable and its heartaches beyond human description.

Share My Joy.

Through the Archway. - March 19

By the obedience of one shall many be made righteous.

Obedience is the keystone of your arch of worship. On it depend your Love and Power.

Through that archway shall many pass into My Holy Place. Once therein their questing souls will pass into My Holy of Holies. Is it too much to ask of you: obedience that this may be accomplished?

Do not fret that your life is lived in lowly places. It is not to be lived to impress this earth-plane, but to be so faithful and obedient that those for whom you desire much, shall have THAT much impressed upon them on the spirit-plane.

That much, and more, than you can desire for them.

First Place. - March 20

I do not promise My followers the world's ease and pleasures. I promise those Joys that the world can neither give nor take away.

I promise that heart-rest found with Me alone.

It does not mean that all the beauties and pleasures of the world must be renounced, but that they must be enjoyed only after the treasures and Joys of My Kingdom have been learned, appreciated and given first place.

Simplicity. - March 21

Be content to do the simple things.

Never think that if you have not the cleverness of the world I cannot use your services.

Pure sparkling wine may be in a silver goblet or in a simple glass, but, to the one who receives, it is the wine that matters, not the vessel, provided that be pure and clean.

It is My Truth that matters, not the person that utters it, provided the desire is there to deliver My Message for ME.

True simplicity is found only as you live in Me and act in my Strength; for only in our close companionship can real value be achieved.

Never accept the values of earth. Be content with simplicity.

Love's Overflow. - March 22

I desire the love of man's heart in abundant measure.

Not because God would be adored for Himself and for His Own gratification, but because I know that only as the love of man flows out to Me does man attain to his purest and best.

That rush of love, which follows the understanding and realization of My Love for man, sweetens and purifies his whole being.

"Thou shalt love thy neighbour as thyself." The Love you give to your neighbour is the overflow of your love to Me.

Yes,
At least Covid has slowed down the world and allowed people to be still and hopefully ponder spiritual things like they've never done before..:)
Agreed. Unfortunately, most are spending their time worrying about the future, and wondering when things will ever return to the way they were in the past, instead of focusing on the present moment (the calm, centre "eye of the storm") where Father (God) is.

There couldn't be a more obvious wake-up call (at the end of at least 40 years of serious wake-up calls) for those who are not spiritually sound asleep.

No Personalities. - March 23

Deal with each difficulty as you must.

Then live above it. Say, "In Him I Conquered."

The fight is ever between you and evil, never between you and another. Never make it a personal matter.

If you are fighting with the weapons of the world (Satan's) - envy, resentment, anger - you cannot use those of My Kingdom - Prayer, Love, Peace - which would give you a God-given conquering strength.

It is the endeavour to call both God and mammon to your aid that makes for lack of success. The world looks on in scornful pity, and My followers themselves doubt and wonder.

So often they do not see their own error, but attribute to suffering for My Sake that which may not be according to My Will.

If it Offends - - March 24

Question yourself as to your weakness. What caused your failure? To continue to bemoan your folly is in itself a weakness. My followers must be strong, not in themselves, but in Me.

The look at 'Self', however penitent, cannot give strength.

Look unto Me, and, whatever the seeming sacrifice, be ruthless with what hindered or caused you to fall.

Sift Your Motives. - March 25

Walk in My Ways. Follow the path I have bidden you tread.

Humble yourselves before Me, and keep My Laws, so shall you have perfect peace.

I am with you to give you the needed strength. Go forward unafraid. Grow in Grace, and in the knowledge of Me, your Master and your Friend. Count all the learning of earth's wisest as nothing, compared with the Wisdom that I, your Lord, would show you.

Love and learn. You have much, very much to do for My Kingdom. So seek to become perfect. Sift your motives. All that is unworthy cast aside, uproot its inner growth.

You are freely forgiven. Forgive freely, largely, wonderfully.

Keep Step. - March 26

Go forward, glad indeed.

Walk with Me until your faltering, flagging footsteps learn to keep in step with Me, and gain a firmness and a confidence unknown before.

Walk with Me until a gladsome rhythm reveals the conquest-spirit that you draw from Me, and your whole being thrills with the joy of being, doing and even suffering, with Me.

Thus, in loving Communion with Me, you learn to know My needs and My wishes for others.

"Here am I, Lord, send me" shows very surely a child-like eagerness, the eagerness of love, even the eagerness for adventure for My cause.

For in My Secret Service there is surely the thrill of spiritual adventure that far outweighs anything the world has to offer.

Spirit in Training. - March 27

Go on along the highway of the Kingdom until all that comes, that touches your outward lives and circumstances, has no power to ruffle your spirit-calm. Make it a delight so to train yourselves.

Why does man rebel at aught that should teach him poise of spirit, whilst in the physical world he welcomes severe exercise that would increase his physical-powers?

The children of this world are surely wiser in their generation than the children of light. If My Children of Light gave to their spirit and character-training all the care that the children of this world give to the body - its feeding, its clothing, its wellbeing - how rapid would their spiritual progress be!

Yet how little does the body matter compared with the growth of the Spirit. "Fear not them that kill the body, but are not able to kill the soul."

In Eternity Now. - March 28

Heirs of God. Joint heirs with Me of Eternal Life, if so be that you suffer with Me, that we may also be glorified together.

Glory denotes perfection of character. This can only be learned as you allow discipline to play its part in your life, and also as you entrust your sinful past to Me.

Perfect through suffering. You cannot escape discipline, and be truly My disciple.

If you think that life is too short for all you have to do and to conquer, then remember that you have already entered upon ETERNITY.

The True Sign. - March 29

How many believed on My Name after seeing the signs which I did?

Not for the signs, not for the water made wine, not for My miracles, will My true follower believe Me.

No, for something deeper, seen only with the eyes of faith, realized only by a heart of love responding to My Heart of Love. Not of these must it be said, "I do not trust Myself unto them," as I said of those who saw My signs.

I must trust Myself and My Cause to My followers who see Me with eyes of faith. How else can I be loved and known?

They will meet Me, the outcast Saviour, when I am performing no mighty deeds, wandering unheeded and unacclaimed through dark and lonely ways, and they will pause, all other pursuit forgotten, and will yet turn and follow Me.

Follow because of some chord in them responsive to the yearning of My Heart for Man, who has shut Me out. Follow, too, because of that in Me which is responsive to the cry of man's hungering soul.

The Love of Your Life. - March 30

I am beside you. I am with you in all that you do. I control your thoughts, inspire your impulses, guide your footsteps, if you are truly Mine.

I strengthen you, body, mind and spirit.

I am the link between you and those who are in the Unseen.

I am the Love of your lives.

Controller of your destinies.

Guardian, advocate, provider, Friend.


Yes, love Me more and more. So will you not only enjoy to the full the treasures and joys of My Kingdom, but increasingly those of Nature, My gift to My world.

The Wrong Voice. - March 31

I am the Great Teacher, so ready to explain the simplest lesson to the most ignorant.

It is not for you to seek everywhere explanations of Me and My Kingdom, its Laws and its purposes.

Learn of Me. How often would I have spoken to some heart, but the voice of one too eager with explanations about Me crowded Me out.

When Andrew brought Simon to Me, he was silent to let his brother learn of Me.

The reason for this crowding out of My Voice by My disciples is their unwillingness to believe that I do speak to-day. So, thinking they worship a silent Christ, they seek to make amends by their much speaking.

The Time of Resurrection. - April 1

Spring brings its message of Hope.

Not only does it proclaim the Truth that Nature arises from her time of decay and darkness to a new life. But, My children, it surely speaks to the individual, to nations, to My world, that the time of decay and darkness for them too can pass, and that, from conflict and storm, disaster and sin, they can spring to a new and gladdening Resurrection-Life.

But Nature obeys My Laws. It is by her obedience that the quickening of new life is succeeded by the beauty of Risen Power.

So, only as man obeys My Will, and works according to My Divine Plan for him, can harmony follow chaos, peace follow war, and a reign of Love succeed one of conflict and carnage.

Resurrection Preparation. - April 2

I am the Master of the Universe. Accept My ordered Word. When you do this in joyful sincerity, you link yourself with all the creative forces of the Universe.

My Spirit can then be operative, first in you and then through you.

My followers forget that the scourging at the pillar, the Divine control ("He answered never a word"), and the Cross, man-rejected, man-forsaken, all these preceded the Resurrection.

Without these there could have been no Resurrection. These steps in Spirit-conquest had to be, before My all-powerful, Divine Spirit could be released to be for ever available for those who would hear My Call, and would will to walk, not just talk, in My Way.
