Jesus you have won me! Because you are, I can be! I am hidden and safe in you! I am restored to innocence in you! Because you have always been and always will be ‘I Am’; I am also! My reality does not exist apart from You, Your Father and Holy Spirit! Everything that can be seen for what it is in truth; imagined or known has its meaning and substance in You! “It started when God said, "Light up the darkness!" and our lives filled up with light as we saw and understood God in the face of Christ, all bright and beautiful.” (2 Cor. 4: 6a, Msg)
“4:6 The light is sourced in the same God who said, “Light, be!” And light shone out of darkness! He lit the lamp in our understanding so that we may clearly recognize the features of his likeness in the face of Jesus Christ reflected within us. (The same God who bade light shine out of darkness has kindled a light in our hearts, whose shining is to make known his glory as he has revealed it in the features of Jesus Christ. — Knox Translation) 4:7 We have discovered this treasure where it was hidden all along, in these frail skin-suits made of clay. We take no credit for finding it there! It took the enormous power of God in the achievement of Christ to rescue our minds from the lies we believed.
“The kingdom of heaven is like treasure hidden in an agricultural field, which a man found and covered up; then in his joy he goes and sells all that he has and buys that field.” [Mt 13:44] God invested all that he has in the redeeming of our original value! He rescued the life of our design. Our inner life hosts the treasure of the life of our design. Jesus said in John 7:37,38, “If you believe that I am what the scriptures are all about, you will know that you are what I am all about and rivers of living water will gush out of your innermost being!” Toit, Francois Du (2012-07-02).

Because the above scriptures are absolute, undiluted, eternal truth; I would like to submit for your consideration that the following statements are reasonable and simple responses.
God is not looking for you to do more for Him. He is simply and passionately looking for more of you. He is looking for more of your heart. "For the eyes of the Lord run to and fro throughout the whole earth, to show Himself strong on behalf of those whose heart is loyal to Him.” (2 Chronicles 16:9a, NKJV)
“You are at your best when you are hidden deeply inside the heart of Jesus. Never do something because you are looking for the approval of man. Your Heavenly Father is the only One whose pleasure is worth having”. ---Heidi Baker
Every voice inside that says you can't is now silenced, every person who has stood in the way of your destiny is now an illusion and every reason you have for quitting is washed away in the grace of His love. Your dashed hopes, unfulfilled dreams, failures, struggles, besetting sins, life issues, seeming disadvantages, resolved or not are now your testimony to the Overcoming power of Jesus Christ!
From this moment forth, do yourself a favor: only give voice to Jesus’ grace-filled voice, only give access and power to His Holy Spirit from within or without and place your present and future hopes in His redemptive restorative, all-powerful Blood!
