“Send the light of your own loving ahead of you. When you get there, the loving will have prepared a place for you.
Be kind, gentle, and enjoy the journey.” Peter McWilliams quotes



The Lord is saying. Know that freedom is my will for you. There is no limit to the wonder I have in store for you. The boundaries I place on you are freedom, for on the other side of the line is bondage, pain and torment. True freedom is staying in my truth and making it your own. Then you can fly unhindered.


Then said Jesus to those Jews which believed on him, If ye continue in my word, then are ye my disciples indeed; And ye shall know the truth, and the truth shall make you free.They answered him, We be Abraham's seed, and were never in bondage to any man: how sayest thou, Ye shall be made free? Jesus answered them, Verily, verily, I say unto you, Whosoever committeth sin is the servant of sin. And the servant abideth not in the house for ever: but the Son abideth ever. If the Son therefore shall make you free, ye shall be free indeed.
John 8: 31-36

Grace is free the truth is not. We are to, "Buy the truth, and do not sell it, Proverbs 23:23

When God lightens up His word to us and our hearts burn with joy at the revelation, it is not the end, but the beginning of the story. There is usually a price to pay for the truth. Not that we have to buy the promises of God, no!!... they are Yes and Amen in Christ. However the revelation of them and the light and freedom they bring can be easily replaced with other things if we do not value wisdom, truth and understanding above all else.. There is usually something we need to let go to make room for the truth.

Wisdom is the principal thing; therefore get wisdom: and with all thy getting get understanding.
Proverbs 4:7

How much better is it to get wisdom than gold! and to get understanding rather to be chosen than silver!

Proverbs 16

."Again, the Kingdom of Heaven is like a man who is a merchant seeking fine pearls, who having found one pearl of great price, he went and sold all that he had, and bought it." Matt 13:45,46

Lets not forget who is the 'Word' and who is 'Wisdom' when we make room for the 'Truth' It is Jesus Himself who gets to dwell more fully in us and with Him brings His untold riches that far outweigh anything this world can offer.

"Let the Word of Christ dwell in you richly in all wisdom."
(Col. 3:16)




The wisdom of man.

When I look at the sand on the seashore and see all the work of His hand;

The Garden of Eden He thought on to be the accomplishment of all He had planned.

How man in his wisdom has spoiled things from the depths of the seas to the skies,

From now on may we seek His wisdom and put all works of darkness to flight.
