What is needed is to believe in Me and to love Me. What is not needed is to worry. How much time do you spend praising Me, thanking Me, even just thinking about Me?
I care about him and I are about you. I care about My people. I am aware of what they are doing and thinking. I hear their prayers and the cries of their hearts. I know those who believe in Me.
Open your eyes to see what I am doing around you. I am working on your behalf. The more you give yourself to Me, the more I can help you. Right now I have a strong covering over you to bless what you do. But if you were to invite Me to help you in what you are doing, how much more could I do on your behalf. How much more wisdom and understanding My Spirit has for you. You see Him at work as you lead the study discussion. He reminds you of My Word, what you have read and studied before. You realize that He is helping you. So why not ask Him directly for His help? Why not acknowledge what He is doing for you by praising and thanking Him? You are doing this in a limited way now, but there is so much more for you. You are relying on yourself. My helpers are all around you to help you do so much more. Ask and you will receive. Seek and you shall find. Knock and the door will be opened for you.
In every situation, I am there for you. Nothing happens in your life by chance. Your experiences are shaped to make you more like Me. Train your spirit to see Me, to hear Me, to know Me, to praise Me and to love Me.
Peace I give you, not as the world gives. Assurance of salvation I give you, not based on what you do, but what My Son has done. Joy I give you, not as the world gives, but welling up for those who put their trust in Me and are filled with My Spirit. Love I give you, not as the world gives, but unconditional, covering, deep, encouraging, forgiving, transforming. Receive what I have for you. Walk in it.
Love, faith, hope – do you understand these? Father, Son, Spirit – do you know us? We are related, we are in harmony, we are in unity, we are love, we are holy. Spend your time seeking us and you will do well.
I love you. I have not left you as an orphan, but I have sent My Spirit to be with you. My Spirit instructs you about Me and about you.
