leave yourself open
“Because you are naturally so earthbound and so steeped in the carnal nature that your forefathers chose, and which you were born into‚ that is your natural direction, the one you would normally choose. But when your spirit begins to grow and mature through experience‚ then you begin to learn that those choices don’t really satisfy your spirit. They may satisfy your body temporarily‚ but the only thing that satisfies your spirit are choices made for Me.”
the tree of life
“That’s why it all comes down to “Jesus is enough.” I am enough because I am all the things that satisfy your spiritual needs. I am love, I am kindness, I am gentleness, I am longsuffering, I am mercy. I am the satisfaction of your spirit. It is Me. I am the tree that contains the fruits that satisfy you. And by “you,” I mean what you primarily are and what you were primarily created as, and that is a spiritual being. It just so happens that you are housed in a physical body and a carnal nature, so your proclivity is to go the carnal way and make carnal choices.”
it begins with salvation
“But through life on Earth I try to lead each person back to Me. First through salvation, and then through feeding on My Word‚ and through experience, I try to lead everyone as deeply into My Spirit as they will choose to go. The further they go‚ the happier they are.
When will you get to the stage that “Jesus is enough”? Well, that depends on you. That depends on how much you learn from your experiences in the carnal and how much you implement the counsel in My Word. I won’t be enough if you are making carnal choices. Choosing Me usually means forsaking and setting aside the things of the flesh. So if I don’t satisfy you right now, at this moment, if I’m not everything to you‚ that’s probably because you are choosing to satisfy your carnal nature and desires more than your spirit. Thus your spirit just isn’t satisfied, because you are not making the choices that satisfy it.
(Jesus Is Enough [#3611])
Understanding Your Purpose PART 3
“It all depends on your choices and on the balance of choices you are making. Do you desire to satisfy the carnal? Then I won’t be satisfying you. But if you are making choices for Me and toward Me, then carnal desires will become less important to you.
The more you choose to satisfy your spirit, the more satisfaction of spirit you receive from Me. It’s a habit you form. If you feed the flesh, then you will crave more flesh; but if you major on feeding your spirit, then it’s the spirit that you will desire. Ultimately, satisfaction of spirit is the only thing that will really fulfill and satisfy you. But satisfying the flesh can become addicting, and definitely get in the way of spiritual feeding and satisfaction.”
