Jewels from Judy: My Best For You

A word from the Father’s heart to yours: My Best For You
“You have an enemy and he is after your time. There is only so much time allotted to each person on this earth. If the devil or his cohorts distract you, dissuade you or cause you to be weakened in your resolve to serve Me wholeheartedly, then he can keep you from My best.
“Even doing GOOD THINGS is an enemy because it will keep you from My best. If you have committed to do a good thing, I will expect you to fulfill your vow even if I have something better for you to do. I will release you from it in due season, but you must learn from this difficult lesson. I want you to always inquire of Me before committing to a work. Just because it sounds good and may be good doesn’t mean it’s My best for you.
“I will tell you the way to go – listen for the peace in your soul. Obedience to My will brings forth heavenly blessings. I will restore as you walk in My best. Remember, My best can take on many forms and requires humility. Greatness in My kingdom rarely translates to greatness on earth because few can withstand the temptations that come from it.
“I Am the Shepherd and Guardian of your soul and My way is the best for you.”
