Keep your eyes on me.
I am the Truth, the Way, the Light.
How do we incorporate Jesus' teachings to lean upon him and put the Presence of God first?
Whether you are experiencing difficult emotions, physical health issues, or harsh environment and people, haunting memories, or anything else that makes you feel less than your best.. this is a focus, a perception, a living in a parallel dimension separate from God.
Paul mentioned that our fight is spiritual and not of this world. (2 Corinthians 10)
God wants to use each of your unique expression to touch you, experience love and Union with you and to also be able to reach others and touch others; to draw them closer to Love and Grace. This could happen through a hug, through encouraging words, through seeing an art piece, through getting great food and service, through a hair cut.. We could be nourished and touched by the Holy Spirit in so many ways!
There are temptations, lies, and forces working to keep us from our full power in God's love. There is a dimension of lower and negative energy (Satans/ devil, jealousy, rage, envy, selfishness, etc) that wants to thwart the flow of blessings and Oneness with God's guidance and flow.
If you see it as 2 energetic dimensions that are both living here and battling for your attention.. maybe you can recognize which one you're in at any given moment.
In God's presence, the Devil and his manipulations are irrelevant. If we are in the demonic or lower dimensions we may think we need to fight, argue, lie, steal, manipulate, or convince someone or something to allow us to Be Who We Are. Or for them to "allow" us to live out God's plan of freedom and Joy! We may feel like we need to ask permission, tame the beast, walk on eggshells.. work ourselves and lives around not being attacked! Avoiding.. not rocking the boat.. people pleasing.
If GOD directly gave you a gift in the way of a person, talent, heart's desires, relationship, ability, blessing, money, opportunity, experience, and so on.. it is no one else's business for you to justify taking and using the gift! The devil has a lot of people and ways to make you feel like you're not good enough or trick you into believing the gift will hurt you. Or your gift will make others feel bad. Or you're obligated to give it to someone else or sacrifice it for someone else.
The devil has a lot of opinions about you not having your gift from God. But it isn't his gift to give or keep from you. his thoughts and desires for you how you use your life force energy, talents, and passion are truly irrelevant! Look to God and take your blessing and use it! (You do not owe anything to have a gift from God, our Source is infinite!)
That is why Jesus says: look at me.
Because even in the midst of whatever you are facing, in God's energy, the devil is irrelevant. You don't have to prove worthiness. You don't have to ask for permission. God granted us and Jesus showed us the command and authority we have over the Devil or lower Energies.
Standing strong in the presence of the Lord- Jesus Christ, for he has done the ultimate act of Love and all Darkness flees from Him.
Love surrounds you,
