You have to stretch yourself to grow. Sometimes, as you stretch beyond a point you have been before, whether physically, mentally or spiritually you will experience resistance to the new way. Patterns have been set in your life and following the patterns already set is quite comfortable. But no gain is made by continuing to travel the same path day in and day out. You have to journey beyond with full intention to get beyond the point you are at, to persevere through the discomfort of a new space. But know this; the new space will be comfortable one day. So comfortable that again you will feel an urging to again go beyond and challenge yourself to new heights.
The gift of knowing, all are given the same gifts of Spirit. It is not a matter of anyone or another having the gift of hearing the call of Spirit over another. What it is, is a matter of acceptance, recognition and then desire to develop a clear channel. A clear channel is one free of the static of a chattering mind. Spirit speaks to all. All can hear but they must choose to listen.
Jesus Christ was a clear channel and thus voice for Spirit. But even as plainly as he spoke the word of God to the people of his day, he was aware that many did not have the ears to hear the truth of his message. So he spoke the words for those with ears to hear. He spread the seed of God’s message of truth everywhere. Even though he knew much would fall onto unfertile ground (unhearing ears) there would still be some which would fall on fresh tilled soil awaiting the word of God to plant within their souls to grow their faith anew.
If you are not growing you are dying. You are in the process of degenerating versus regenerating. You must challenge yourself daily to grow in some way to become more than you were the day before. Stagnation is certain death.
“IT’S TEN O’CLOCK AND ALL IS WELL!” You don’t hear that anymore in your society, the clear voice of the town crier ringing out across the night air messages of safety and comfort to all. Your society feeds no messages of comfort. Only fear is bred. Even with good intentions messages of fear and discord are rang out. The story now is awareness of discord and disease. Breeding more and more discord and disease with each breath given to such talk. What you think about you bring about dear ones, so why not change your tune to health and happiness awareness.
For as you declare and make more aware of living in accord with such a flow of life, much life you shall give to all whom truly desire to live well and at ease, in comfort and joy. Comfort and joy is to be known. It is to be proclaimed and specifically named. The Comforter within knows your truth and proclaims joy and comfort in your name. Take time My dears to listen to the call, the call for all to know the Truth of angels as they herald. “JOY TO THE WORLD, YOU ARE SAFE AND WARM! IT’S TEN O’CLOCK AND ALL IS WELL.”
