Loving the Unlovable
Dearest ones, I always look forward to the morning when you are awake and I can commune with you again at the beginning of each day. Your hearts are so eager to connect with me and hear my voice speaking to you in the quietness of your soul. Perhaps it is hard for you to imagine that I can enjoy the fellowship with you that we have each day, when I have my Father at my side, and myriads of angels around me at all times, but just remember that I created you to be a part of my kingdom, and for the loving relationship that we can share. No two people are alike, and just as you love each of your children uniquely, so I love each of you uniquely and look forward to our fellowship together. Now for the topic of the day. I want to talk with you about loving the unlovable. Of all the things that you encounter in your daily journey through life, this is one of the hardest. That is because you were created to love and be loved by my Father and I and all the hosts of heaven, as well as your family and friends, and to be respected by even those who are not a part of your inner circle. So when this is not the case, it produces anxiety, emotional pain and distress, sadness, and darkness of mind. Since you were never created to experience rejection, criticism, anger from others, and all the other emotions that are a result of the sin condition, you have no natural defense for it. So this is where arguing and fighting and negative emotions come into the picture as people try to defend themselves against the pain of not feeling loved and secure. The whole problem of sin is about lack of love for me, and lack of love for each other. That is why my law addresses these two categories in more detail then I am doing here. But I want to focus this morning upon what to do when you do not feel loved, understood, and appreciated. Of course, I experienced a great deal of that when I was upon Earth, because I had to go through to the fullest extent what every human being must suffer. Until the cross I always felt my Father's love and acceptance and guidance. But although this was the mainstay which kept me strong, I still keenly felt the rejection of people, especially of those who were my closest friends and loved ones. So I have trod the pathway before you and I want to help you to have my victory over rejection and abuse. The key to remember is that such things come from the Devil through the person to you. Never forget that you have an enemy who hates you if you follow me, and wants to destroy your happiness and usefulness in any way possible. So he will stir up others to attack, reject, misunderstand, and abuse you in every way he can. But I want you to learn to keep an even keel and not be drawn into the negative emotions that are normal to feel under these experiences. But you can only do this if you are having a calm close walk with me and are able to perceive my love for you and my instructions and counsel as you go through the experience. You are no match for the enemy without me, and you will fall prey to him without my help and strength. You know that the scriptures say, "There hath no temptation taken you but such as is common to man; but God is faithful, who will not suffer you to be tempted above that ye are able; but will with the temptation also make a way of escape, that ye may be able to bear it." [1 Cor. 10:13.] So with every temptation and trial that I allow to come to you, I also have a remedy - a ram in the thicket, so to speak. And just as I gave a release from the trial that I brought to Abraham and Isaac when they had passed the test, so I have a remedy for every trial that I allow to come to you, which I will make clear to you at the proper time. It Is by passing The daily tests that you grow mentally, emotionally, and spiritually, for no one starts out a finished product when they are born. The carnal nature is in the ascendancy when a child is born, and through life it must learn and grow to be a successfully functioning adult. So also it is in the spiritual life. You must learn to walk with me through every trial that I allow to come to you. When you walk with me, I measure every trial before I allow it to come to you, and if you walk with me through it, you will come forth as gold, with a character which has been tried in the fire and freed of all dross and tin. So look up, for your redemption draweth nigh, and the waiting time for my coming is almost over. In the meantime, walk with me through every trial and I will give you my victory. When you are tested by the rejection, disapproval, and scorn of others, focus upon my love and acceptance for you, and I will give you pity for the poor souls who are being tortured by the enemy, and buying his wares and thinking his thoughts and doing his bidding. When you have me in your heart and life, you need never feel alone or unloved, for I am always beside you, and I love you with an everlasting love. So walk securely with me today and every day, and let your thoughts capture the songs of angels who are rejoicing about your victory over the enemy. Soon you will join them around my throne. But even now I want you to rejoice that you are loved and accepted by God, and that your salvation and your reward is secure, both in heaven, and in your earthly life as well. Have a blessed Sabbath, for we will be with you to bring the fellowship and love of all of heaven to you as you open your heart and mind to connect with us in blessed fellowship together. Lovingly, Jesus.
