I hear the cries of those who feel rejected and separated from Me, and you are asking, “Where are You, Lord?” I tell you honestly that I have not rejected nor abandoned you, but you have separated yourself from Me by rejecting another. For, as it is written, if you say you love Me and hate your brother you are a liar. You have also heard it said that to be perfect you must bridle your tongue. And, again, out of the abundance of the heart the mouth speaks. Therefore, purify your heart. You separated yourself from Me when you were tempted to compare yourself with others, and the result was envy and insecurity. You rose up in pride to protect your own inadequacy through criticism and unrighteous judgment. Your judgments were not based on My word or My heart, but on your own flesh desires and worldly values. This was betrayal, for I have called you out of the darkness of your own soul into the glorious light of My Spirit, yet you retreated back into the darkness of self-interest and cut yourself off from the light. Turn from this wickedness and accept Me again, and accept and love those who belong to Me. Come and be reconciled, and let us again enjoy sweet communion together. James 4:6 -8 But He gives more grace. Therefore He says: “God resists the proud, But gives grace to the humble.” Therefore submit to God. Resist the devil and he will flee from you. Draw near to God and He will draw near to you. Cleanse your hands, you sinners; and purify your hearts, you double-minded.
