not the obstacle
(Jesus speaking) “In that moment, His reply so clearly echoed in My ear as He said, “The vital element You must pursue, My Son, if You are going to use the keys to a greater degree, is You must learn to focus on the power! You must only focus on the power and the power alone.” What My Father spoke to Me that day was like turning on a light in a room. “Focus on the power!” Yes, of course, that was it, I thought to Myself! And My Father went on to give Me the following sound advice.”
stop looking at the obstacles
“He told Me what I needed to do was focus more on the power of the keys than on the obstacles I faced. He said I needed to forget about looking at the obstacles and set My focus only on the power I had access to. I had to acknowledge that the obstacles were there; I had to acknowledge there was a problem; but when I was faced with an obstacle, I was to instantly focus on the power, focus on the keys, focus on My Father, on His Word, and on what I knew to be true.”
The power is there, all you need to do is believe.
“I had to focus on His Word, on the power of the keys, not on the circumstances that surrounded Me. He told Me clearly that what I had to do was to ignore all other possibilities of solutions to any given problem or obstacle I faced. I had to ignore all other voices crying out to Me and only focus on the keys.”
dangers of carnal thinking
How was I to do this? I was in the flesh as you are, surrounded by the things of the Earth. I was not exempt from carnal thinking. My Father said it was simple, really–a simple matter of faith alone. I had to focus on His power rather than carnal thinking, and the way to do this was to exercise My faith in His Word, in His promises to Me, and most importantly, I had to not only claim His promise, but I had to act on the Word I was given.
The Keys will not respond to a selfish heart.
“I was to look fully to My Father by putting the instruction He gave Me into action; this was focusing on the power. I would shoot up prayers and hear from My Father on the spot, but the key to focusing on the power was to take immediate action and do what He told Me to do, and do it right then if He was so leading.”
Take action and open the flood gate
“The key was not only in calling on the keys, but in following through. By taking action, by being a doer of the Word that I was given, there was no room to even contemplate other possibilities, which would block the power of the keys I had available to Me. Being a doer of the Word, obedient only to the will of My Father, was My declaration of faith. Obeying and acting on the Word–the power of the Word–opened the floodgates for the power of the keys to flow through Me.”
