I was there with them. They are with Me now. Someday you will be with Me. I am glorified when My people stand for Me. The enemy comes to steal kill and destroy, but I have come to bring life and that more abundantly. What you see is the beginning of the end. They will gather around My people as if to destroy her. No weapon formed against you shall prosper. He that rises up against you shall be brought low.
Give back what you have received from My hand. Banish fear and doubt from your mind and heart. Rest in My promises. Believe Me and trust that I am with you to bless the work of your hands.
All things work together for My good. When that happens it will be the best for you, if you are submitted to My will and purpose for your life.
The love of God is manifested in you. Just as Joshua wanted to stay in the tent of My Presence, so too should you seek to be with Me. Let My anointing and My Spirit cover you.
This is the day, the age of My grace. I give of Myself so that those who trust in Me can overcome their weaknesses and sin. I give freely and lavishly, even when you don’t ask Me, I give, I cover, I love. Love is given away. Love can be hard to do when the person being loved is undeserving. You were undeserving, but I sent My Son anyway for you. I sent My Son gladly for you. Can you give your love gladly?
All of life has its challenges. There is a time for everything. Seasons come and go, sowing and reaping, giving and receiving, laboring and resting, life and death, sickness and health, prosperity and hardship, sin and forgiveness, rain and sunshine, heat and cold, light and darkness. I am there through it all, unchanging, available and loving My people and those who resist Me. Some live lives like a yo-yo with great swings all of the time. Others are constant, dependable, regular. Each day of your life is written in My book, each thought, each deed, each situation, each sin – though I cover those and wash them away with My Son’s blood. We will review your life together and you will see what I have done for you. My eyes are attentive to the cries of My people. I respond to faith. I look for those who believe in Me. I show them and reveal Myself to them. Even small faith will be rewarded. A child knows little but has a trusting heart. Just as a child responds to love and nurturing, so you too must respond to Me. Stay close to Me. Don’t wander away to places full of danger and pain. The enemy deceives, but I give truth and life.
The thief comes to steal, kill and destroy, but I have come to bring life and to give it more abundantly. Die to live. Stop living the old sinful life apart from Me and begin to live in newness of My Spirit and find real life, life that endures into eternity. The work of God is this that you believe in Me. It is believing and not in doing that you find life. Trust in the Lord with all your heart and lean not on your own understanding. In all your ways acknowledge Me and I will direct your steps.
Without exception, the things of this world will fail. They will fail to deliver what is promised or hoped for, and fail to give beauty more than what I have made. They will break and wear out over time. They reflect man and not God.
