For where have you put your affections? Have you placed them upon Me? For I tell you, too many have set their affections on themselves, on their own desires, wants and needs. I have said, trust in Me with ALL your HEART, with all your mind and with all your understanding. I will direct your paths. Do not lean on your own understanding. Too many have become reliant upon their own understanding. They have set their affections upon the knowledge they have acquired, the people they know or the status they receive. I say to you, put down those idols. For that is what they have become. Cut them down, cast them away, return to Me. Set your affections on things above, on Me. For My heart is for you. For I look for those who desire and long for Me and seek Me out, who seek Me and Me alone sayeth the Lord of hosts.
