“First the Spiritual

The LORD is near to those who have a broken heart, and saves such as have a contrite spirit. Many are the afflictions of the righteous, but the LORD delivers him out of them all.

PSALM 34:18–19

What can I say to you? Your heart is torn. Then remember "He bindeth up the broken hearts." Just feel the tenderness of My Hands as I bind up your wounds.

You are very privileged, both of you. I share My plans and secrets with you and make known to you My Purposes, while so many have to grope on.

Try to rest on these words. "Seek ye first the kingdom of God, and his righteousness; and all these things shall be added unto you." Then strive not for them but, untiringly, for the things of My Kingdom.

It is so strange to you mortals, you would think the material things first and then grow into the knowledge of Spiritual things. Not so in My Kingdom. It is Spiritual things first and then material. So to attain the material redouble your efforts to acquire the Spiritual.

 PRAY:

Lord, I ask You to help me set my priorities according to Your heavenly will. Keep me focused on the spiritual, the eternal, and not on those material things that all too soon will vanish like dust in the wind.”
