My children, you must follow Me, but then you must deny yourselves, pick up your cross every day and follow Me. Many are not willing that is why they still do not follow Me, My way but they go their own ways and do their own things, not My will. I force no one to follow Me. You must be willing and do it out of love for Me, not out of force. I know every heart and all motives.
Many do not follow Me because they do not know Me for real. I am not alive to them. They only know about Me, they do not hear nor know My voice for themselves but only the voices of strangers. That is why they are deceived and in darkness because they only listen to and follow strangers but not Me. I warned, do not listen to, nor follow after strangers, but run away from them. They are the ones who lead them astray from Me that is why they do not follow Me. It is easier to listen to and to follow people than it is to listen to, obey and follow Me, My way.
My ways are not your ways, My thoughts are not your thoughts and My plan is not your plan I know My plan and purpose for each one of you. I will guide and lead you by My Spirit every step of the way and no one else. You must then submit willfully and totally to Me and My authority. I must be in full control. Deny yourself, your will and your ways, surrender all to Me and follow Me, My way. I go before you to show you My way. I make the crooked places straight, and the rough places smooth. I open doors for you at My time according to My plan and purpose for each one of you. But you must yield to My Spirit, listen, obey and follow Me as I guide and lead you, one step at a time. I will not fail you, trust Me with all your heart and do not lean on your own understanding. Follow Me, one day at a time.
