I am looking for people through whom I can rule and reign in the earth. I want to do signs and wonders and miracles through them. However do not seek to do signs and wonders and miracles, and do not seek to rule and reign. These are designed to be the byproducts or the evidence of your relationship with Me.
Did I not warn that in the day of judgment there would be those who would cry, “Lord, Lord, have we not prophesied in Your name, and in Your name have cast out devils? And in Your name have done many wonderful works?” “And then will I profess unto them, I never knew you: depart from Me, ye that work iniquity” (Matthew 7:22-23).
This iniquity is lawlessness: not allowing My Presence to write My law upon the pages of the heart. Whatever is in your heart will affect your words. “Out of the abundance of the heart the mouth speaks. A good man out of the good treasure of the heart brings forth good things: and an evil man out of the evil treasure brings forth evil things. But I say to you, That every idle unemployed, ineffective, unprofitable word that men speak, they shall give account thereof in the day of judgment. For by your words you shall be justified, and by your words you shall be condemned” (Matthew 12:34-37).
Your words come from your attitudes, and your attitudes come from the meditation of your heart. The Psalmist said, “Let the words of my mouth, and the meditations of my heart, be acceptable in Your sight, O Lord, My strength and My redeemer” (Psalm 19:14).
Meditate on Me; I came to give you life, abundant life (John 10:10). I stand waiting for you to come to Me. Diligently seek Me, for all those who seek Me shall find Me. To all those who knock, I will open My door (Luke 11:9). My Word in you will surely perform or accomplish that which I send it to do (Isaiah 55:11, John 10:37).
As you seek to know Me, you will find Me. As you make Me Lord of all, I will rule and reign in you. As I rule and reign in you, that is, as you surrender your will to Me, I will build My Kingdom in you and then through you. As you practice yielding to Me, you will become Christlike. I did signs and wonders and miracles on the earth when I walked here, and I continue to do them today as it is My nature do them. Seek to have all of My nature manifest in you and miracles will be as normal to you as breathing.
