Let your heart soar to the heavenlies. Dream about the time you will spend with Me. Can you spend time in My presence? Can you give of yourself to Me?
All the ways of man are before Me. I see into your heart. I know your thoughts and feelings. You long to know Me and to learn from My Word. You want to help others. These things are not of you, but I have put them in you.
Are you connected to Me? Yes, but do you listen? Sometimes. My Word goes forth to bring life and healing and deliverance and forgiveness. I still am creating as I desire. I care for My own. I hear their cries.
You worry about many things. You should ask Me to help you. I know you trust Me, but still you worry. Don’t I love you. Yes, and I want the best for you. Can you accept the blessings I give? Will you operate your life by faith? Will you seek after My anointing so that you can be in My presence for what you do?
Love your wife. Be kind and considerate. Show her affection as if you were trying to win her. She is My gift to you. You need her and she needs you.
Receive from My hand. In order for you to do that, you must be close enough to do that. Dwell on My Word. Get My Word in your mind and heart. Read, listen, study, share. I will give you revelation and understanding and application. There will be always more than you see at first. Just like the story of the man who repeatedly studied the fish specimen, so when you repeatedly read and look at a verse, there will be more to discover. My Word is more than knowledge; it is life and truth, grace and love.
Just like a child who trusts his mother and father, so should you be with Me. He clings to the one who brings comfort and protection. He may wander away to explore, to assert his independence, but he also is always aware of where his parent is. His identity is in his parents. He learns from watching what his mom and dad do. He learns to talk as he hears them talk. His parents teach him what is right and wrong. Even though he may disappoint his parents, they still love him. He may be disciplined for behaving poorly, but they still love him.
When I was a child, I talked like a child, I thought like a child, I reasoned like a child. When I became a man, I put the ways of childhood behind me. (1 Cor 13:11)
Yes, there is a time to grow up into maturity as a man. But do not leave your trusting relationship with Me. Cling to Me and stay close to Me for I will care for you and teach you what you should do. I am like a doting parent, taking joy in My children, watching over them day and night.
