At first, many of My people shall fail at letting go of the people, things and places they desire to keep. Few of My children love Me enough to deny themselves this way, though this I greatly desire of them.
You must train yourselves, My children. You must practice saying no to and letting go of what I want you to release, to do My will and not your own.
The world around you promotes pleasure and indulgence, not sacrifice and submission. If you practice, you will succeed. Those who succeed, I will greatly reward.
Matthew 16:24: Then said Jesus unto his disciples, If any man will come after me, let him deny himself, and take up his cross, and follow me.
Matthew 19:29: And every one that hath forsaken houses, or brethren, or sisters, or father, or mother, or wife, or children, or lands, for my name's sake, shall receive an hundredfold, and shall inherit everlasting life.
