I told you before, and I will tell you again: you must see yourself as I see you. I see you as My beloved friend, created to rule and reign with Me, indwelled with My invincible power. I am not saying you should puff yourself up in a false or prideful manner. But I am saying that you must seek to have My view of you and My vision of how you are to be in eternity! One day you will be perfect. One day you will be all-knowing, all-loving, without a single blemish. One day …
What if you could receive this truth for today and allow it to empower you for the tasks ahead? Your circumstances may seem overwhelming, and your own fleshly nature may cry out in frustration, in pain, in its true state of corruption. Advance with all knowledge that this will pass away, and what is born of the Spirit will last.
Many of the struggles My people have are mere distractions. There are real battles to be fought, but not until My people have a clear view of how I see them. This is why I am calling you to have My vision.
In order to love truly and completely, you must know yourself as one who is deeply loved.
You must see yourself as I see you, and walk in the certainty of this Truth. You must see the people around you as I see them, and walk in the certainty of My love for them. If you have difficulty seeing My pure and perfect view of you, ask Me to show you. If the vision begins to slip away amidst trying circumstances, run to Me immediately and My Spirit will arise to renew your vision.
A true visionary can only proceed from the power of love. In order to love truly and completely, you must know yourself as one who is deeply loved. I have called all of My people to be visionaries; I have urged you to set your minds and hearts upon heavenly things, where I am seated at the right hand of My Father. Steady your gaze now. My will longs to come down from heaven. Do you long to receive it?
“And do not be conformed to this world, but be transformed by the renewing of your mind, that you may prove what is that good and acceptable and perfect will of God.” (Romans 12:2)
“Beloved, now we are children of God; and it has not yet been revealed what we shall be, but we know that when He is revealed, we shall be like Him, for we shall see Him as He is. And everyone who has this hope in Him purifies himself, just as He is pure.” (1 John 3:2-3)
