When all is said and done, what will count? Will you know the name of My Son Jesus? Have you confessed Him as Savior and Lord? Am I good to you? Did I show you mercy and kindness when you called upon Me? Yes, and I did so much more!
The enemy is seeking whom he can devour. Corruption of power is rampant, sometimes even in My Church. Pride magnifies the importance of titles and positions. You seek after a title so that you can do something that you don’t have the boldness and courage to try to do otherwise. My Son countered pride with humility and submission, He only said and did what I asked of Him. He received His honor and glory after He went to the cross in obedience. Now He has authority over all so that He can share His power with His people.
I will deliver him for he trusts in Me. The emptiness of these charges will be exposed and recognized. Judgment will come upon the accusers.
Learn how to praise Me is all things. Be a gracious person.
The enemy has sown seeds of destruction in your land. Pray against it.
Be not afraid for I will take care of you. I am with you to bless you. In all things give Me praise and thanks. Be a blessing to others. The world cannot contain My glory. You will be in awe and wonder on that day.
My life for your life, a simple exchange. Life can be complicated, but I am with you. Cast your cares upon Me. Give your future to Me.
There is a time and place for everything. Since I created the universe, I can make things happen in your world.
Watch for Me to move upon you today. Be attentive to My Spirit. Submit yourself to the other men.
When life ends on this planet, a new world will open up, free of temptation to sin and full of My glory. My grace and loving kindness will cover those who live there as the water covers the sea. In life and in death I will not leave My people. Death will become life again.
You are wise and good. You know me completely. You are my shield.
I will never leave you or forsake you. You are My delight. Am I your delight? What motivates you to seek after Me?
Be a blessing to others. Let your light shine before men that they might seek after Me.
I will be with you forever. Have I ever failed you? My promises are true. Seek after Me in faith and persistence. Seeking becomes faith. Be anxious for nothing. Be a man who prays and believes.
What does death look like? For some there is no hope only fear and depression. For those who know Me, there is peace and even joy, wanting to be with Me.
There is a way which seems right to a man, but in the end it leads to death. The wisdom of God seems foolish to men without faith in God. Sin breeds more sin. There is no sense of truth apart from what man thinks is true. But I am still Truth and the Way and Life.
You will be exalted with Me in My glory. Guard over your heart – your mind and soul. Fill your thoughts with praise and thanksgiving. Meditate on My Word and goodness. Declare with your mouth the promises I made to My people and to you. These were not said idly, but with purpose and conviction and truth.
Focus on Me. Resting in My promises. Renewing your mind.
My grace is sufficient for you. Grace and truth were given through My Son, grace upon grace. Be gracious to others as you want to receive from them, even from those who can’t or won’t extend grace to you.
Where the Spirit of the Lord is, there is power to overcome all obstacles to the will of God. My Spirit is stronger than any temptation to sin.
My ways are not your ways. My thoughts are higher than your thoughts. Will you trust Me? You do for certain things like your salvation. You seem to for things which are beyond your control. Spend more time with Me and My Word. Meditate on men of faith.
Pick a direction and I will be there. My thoughts are great and full of life for you. Join in with Me. Put your trust and faith in the living all-powerful God who created you and knew of you from the beginning of time. Live for Me, mindful of Me, listening for Me.
Come let us bargain together. Your sins are many, but My righteousness is great. Let’s make a deal. My righteousness for your sinfulness. O what a price My Son had to pay. Not only He, but We all felt the pain. Somethings you do when you love like We do. Do not forget our deal. Nothing you can do can takeaway any sin. You are hopeless without My love and mercy and grace. Keep this in mind when you deal with others. Do not compare your sin with another’s for all have sinned. They are paying for their sin just as you are. Sin leads to death. But you have hope for a better life in Me.
Whispering words of love and grace to My people, drawing them closer to see My heart. I sustain them by the power of My words. I give life and hope for what will be better, even amazing for them.
Victory. He who controls the universe had full control over what happened to His Son. His Son had control and willingly submitted Himself fully to the Father to allow His suffering and death. They did not realize what they were doing. The soldiers were just punishing another man, a Jew whom they hated. The centurion saw a different Man, fully in control in what He said and did on that cross. He saw pain, but He saw deliberate words spoken and not spoken. All of the universe paid attention to what was happening. The angels saw and wondered. They battled their foes.
Come let us reason together. Though your sins were as scarlet, now they have been cleansed by the righteous blood of My Son and you have been made pure. What did you do to deserve this? What deed could you have done to receive this act of love? Did you believe in Me? Did you ask Me to wash away your sins? Did you repent and turn from a life following the desires of your flesh? Now you have My Holy Spirit. What did you do to receive this marvelous gift? You asked Me for Him? You claimed My Word about Him? How much I have provided for you!
Let all the earth proclaim My majesty. How many stars in the sky would be needed to display My glory? Would just the sun and the moon be enough? How many grains of sand on the seashore are they? How many birds of the air, insects, animals, fish of the sea – in all of their varieties would be enough? How precious is the miracle of reproduction and birth of babies? Can you really take these things for granted without wondering how and why these things take place?
Received and given away. You have received the gift of salvation and grace. Now give it away with your love. Every prayer, every seeking after Me, every word in My Word brings you closer to Me.
Don’t let the cares of this world become a snare to you. Focus your attention on the things of My Spirit and My Word.
Awake O sleepy one. Turn your ears to Me for wisdom and insight. My grace is sufficient for you. My truth will sustain you. Learn and teach others. Live for Me as My disciple, always learning, always following in My footsteps.
Let your mind ponder My promises. Renew your thinking to agree with My Word in faith and in application. Cast your cares upon Me. Express with your mouth My truth. Yes, I will speak to you anytime you will listen. Train your ear and your heart and your spirit. I am the voice of the one in the desert crying out – come to Me all who labor. Repent of your labor in the flesh. Take My yoke upon you. Let My Word and My Spirit be your guide always. My Truth never ends or gives out. It is always true and reliable, like an anchor deeply set into the rock. Give life to those around you and encouragement. Lift up and not tear down with your words. Be a blessing and not a curse. Listen with an understanding ear. I will help you hear what you need to hear. All things are possible with Me.
I will lead you besides still waters. Learn to drink from My fountain. Find a way to be in My presence to listen and learn from Me. Listen and read My words to you. Let My Words go deep into your soul. Think about them and find meaning for your life and what you are doing.
If you are faithful, I will be faithful to you. I have gifted you and My Spirit speaks to you and gives you words to say. As much as you need Me, I am there for you. Grace is a big word covering a lot of weakness, sin, pain, unbelief, rebellion. Faith is a product of grace. Even My mercy comes from My grace. Grace comes from love, My love for the people I have made. What is the truth but to believe in Me? For without faith it is impossible to please Me, for he who seeks Me must believe that I exist and that I reward those who diligently seek after Me. What is in your heart will come out. Put My Word into your inner being, as a seed full of life. Then I will water and nourish it so that it will bear fruit. Hearing My word is better than just reading it. Even though you might not recall it in your mind, your spirit is being fed. To read and to hear then fills your mind and spirit together. For you to speak My Word without reading it is even better, for it comes from your heart.
Come to the fountain of living water. Imagine water coming out of a rock into a pool then cascading down over rocks. What does water represent? Is it life? What is blood for man? Is it also life? Water is essential for life. My Spirit is essential for your spiritual life. You must be born again to enter the kingdom of God. My Word is a source for life.
To Him who sits on the throne be honor and glory and power and praise forever. What will heaven be like? Pleasing to the senses, magnified over and over. A sense of My Presence full of anointing; peace, joy, love. Is this a motive for following Me? Yes, but it is a gift from Me, prepared long ago. At times you taste a part of it now on earth. I can heal the hardest of hearts, the most vile and evil person. I see the inside heart full of wounds and needs, desperately crying out. Did not the demoniac come running to Me? I will heal your land if My people pray. I will break down the barriers. What more will it take?
Bless the Lord O my soul. How great a God we serve, able to part the seas, able to multiply the loaves and fishes, able to walk on water, and able to restore our fellowship with Him by taking away our sins on the cross through the shed blood of His righteous Son.
What is left to do but to restore justice to My people. Soon that will occur. You see your country divided over a man. Did that occur before over a race of innocent people? Did I not raise up a leader (Lincoln) to make the wrong, right? There was much blood shed. Your leader is flawed for all to see. At times he is a mockery with his pride and words. Is that a reflection of who you are as a people? Will My people wake up and pray? I am watching.
I love you. This is real. You are special to Me for your willingness to pursue after Me.
In everything give thanks and praise to Me. Is that selfish? Maybe, but by doing so you will have great gain in peace, right thinking, rest for your soul. It is not having a fatalistic attitude removing you from any responsibility, but rather it is a trusting and seeking after Me in prayer, a submission of will and spirit to Me. For a man to please Me he must first believe that I exist. I am the One who made everything he can see with his eyes and hear with his ears, touch with his hands. I am the holy God, expecting man to be holy just like I am. I set the standards. I make the rules for life. My ways are higher than your ways. This is basic, but Truth starts with the simple, expanding to the complex. Do you know Me? Do you love Me? I do and do of you. Revelation comes over time through every trial and experience. My Word is the source and anchor for all revelation, with My Spirit at work.
My love for you does not change. I am love and My capacity to love is so great I can love the greatest of sinner. My Son gave His life on the cross for him. Woe to the man who resists My love, who rejects My love. Can you love like I do? My grace can empower you.
In all things give Me praise. I am good and active in your life. You are pursuing the things of God. I am pursuing you. Do not resist what I am doing, but keep on going. Many a man seeks after Me when times are hard. Who will keep going when times are good? What does My Word say? What is My Spirit saying?
It is well. Let My peace cover your soul, peace not as the world knows, but deep seated trust and confidence in Me, finding rest and relief from whatever is disturbing. Even in the midst of trouble, strife, conflict, My blessed one is secure in Me.
He is My instrument to stir up the fallow ground, disturbing the proud, the comfortable, the pious one. A man’s enemies will come from his own household and friends. Even so, the righteous will shine in the darkness. Do not grow weary in obeying Me. Serve Me with a glad heart, knowing that in time your reward is sure. Call upon Me in prayer and intercession. Watch your ways and thoughts and what you speak.
What you have written is good and will be helpful in reaching men. My Spirit will open their hearts to believe in Me just like He did for you. Faith comes by hearing the Word of God. Your gifts will make a way for you.
In all things give Me praise and thanks. I am at work and My will is being carried out in your life and in the lives of My people for My good purposes. Release your burdens to Me in prayer. Carry the burdens of others to Me in prayer.
Come unto Me all who labor and who have heavy burdens and I will give you rest. The wages of sin is death, but first sin brings slavery and the weight of guilt and shame. Even the casual sinner knows that what he is doing is wrong. A simple lie, taking a pencil, speaking a harsh word to another person, seeking attention in pride – these are the beginnings. Yes, the conscience can grow hardened to not react to sin; the mind can rationalize and justify a sinful deed. Fellow sinners encourage more sin. Peace flees away from the sinner.
I have come to bring and restore life – a life rich in relationship with a loving, present God. Is that what you are seeking after? Then repent and believe and invite Me in. O how little a man will accept for himself when I have so much more for him. The enemy deceives and enslaves. Pity the man who rejects what I have to offer.
When I see the glory of the Lord my eyes will be truly open. Time will stop being for me. Nothing else matters and all other things will be forgotten. I will fall on my knees in worship, adoration, submission, praise, thanksgiving. My heart will overflow with His love.
Grace and peace to you as you seek after Me and My truth.
Rest in My love today. Let it permeate into your inner being until it comes out to others. Love always wins over evil. Who I am can’t stop loving, in spite of the one being loved. Can you love the unlovable, the enemy? Does love motivate you?
What does it mean to love as I have loved you? How did I love? When I interacted with people, how did I show love? Did I condemn them for their sin? No. Did I challenge their unbelief? Yes. Did I challenge the hypocrisy of the religious leaders? Yes. I knew the needs of the people. I prayed for them to make them whole. I set them free from their bondage to sin. Would you rather have your sins forgiven or be healed? Both are important, but one has eternal consequences. Keep believing and I will open doors for you.
My name is Holy for I am holy. Be holy for I am holy. Live your life in a holy manner. I will show you the way, for I am the way.
Live with your wife and family in an understanding way. Let Me reveal to you what they need. Each person needs love and kindness. What you say should build up and not tear down. Your words can harm more than blows. Words of life can restore and heal. Be a safe person. Saturate your mind with My Word. Drown out the anxious thoughts. Whatever is good, lovely, beautiful, worthy of praise, inspiring, wholesome in purity and righteousness – think about these things. Let your lips bring forth praise and thanks.
Let Me guide you with your giving. Where is your heart? What is your calling? Match your giving with what you are doing.
Watch for yourself and family. Pray for My will to be done. Submit your will to Mine in everything that you do.
Why are you here? Do you need guidance? Do you want to be with Me? My eyes are watching you. I am stirred when you think of Me. Can you sense when I think of you? Grateful are friends who stay connected with each other. Love flows in relationships.
Washed in the blood, my sins are cleansed away, covered, taken away, not brought to mind – how precious is this gift from the Father, paid by the agony of the Son on the cross. Who is worthy to receive such a gift? No one.
Love as I loved you, as I love you.
Be at peace for I am with you to help you. Bring My love to the men. Help them understand how much I love them. My offer still stands after all this time: believe in My Son and receive the gift of salvation, the forgiveness of sin and eternal life with Me. Nothing in this world compares to what I have for you. Nothing.
I am with you for your good and My glory. Call upon Me for salvation, healing, deliverance, whatever you need. Did I not promise to bless you? Yes, and this promise is for all My people, just as a loving parent blesses his children. Doors will open wide for you as your reputation and My anointing come upon you. Pay attention and give Me praise and thanks and glory. Pray for revival.
Be at peace. Rest in My love and grace. Like the hard working farmer in the heat of day finding a shady place near a winding creek to pause from his labor, so too do I have rest for you. Can you rest, or must you keep pushing your body and mind? Do you enjoy being with Me?
Great are the needs of My people and I meet every one of them just for the asking in faith. In My life on earth as a man I experienced what you are going through. I found strength from My Father and you can too. I am a life-giver. I speak life and healing, forgiveness and deliverance, truth and hope, love and encouragement. I give strength for the weary, hope for the afflicted. In My house there are many rooms, enough for all of my people, those who trust in Me. I know what satisfies.
My love for you never changes. Can you believe this? The pinnacle of My love was given on the cross. Can you show and give love to others? Rescue the lost. Proclaim the good news. Show them the Savior.
What I am about to do in your life may be painful, but trust Me to work it out for My good. Do not think with earthly thinking for that will mislead you. Rather, see what My Spirit reveals. I will not leave you.
Bring Me an offering of praise and thanksgiving. Did you understand what I said? Probably not, but I will reveal what you need to know when it happens. Believe in Me, rest in Me. Rest in the comfort of My Word. In all things give Me praise, for I am at work in My creation. The enemy tries to destroy, but I bring forth life to the fullest to My people. Sometimes hardship is needed to show My love. Can you receive My grace? Yes, and I love you.
Win-lose, these are not words to use. Finish well is much better. Well done good and faithful servant, enter into the joy of your master. A man is judged on many levels on My righteous scales. Seek to do My will and that which My Spirit leads you. You will find true joy in serving My people through Me. A day in My courts is better than . . . you fill in anything of this world.
My grace covers a multitude of sins. My love rescues the lost and hurting. I give of Myself freely and abundantly. Yes is My response in ways that are best for My purposes. Can you love too? My time is your time – now. I am in the present as well as eternity.
Evaluate your life, examine your faith in Me. What do you find? Do you know Me more today than before? Do you trust Me more? Have you really submitted your will to Mine? Where is your heart? What brings you pleasure, joy, peace, satisfaction, excitement?
My life in you brings Me joy. I love it when you decide to come and listen to Me. I know you are still tired, but you want to hear from Me. We are all one – the Father, Son, Holy Spirit and those who believe. They will be with Me for all eternity. I sanctify them with My Word. I protect them as they trust in My Word. I give blessings to them as they fellowship with Us. What is it worth to experience My Presence, anointing, joy, love and peace?
Great is the Lord and most worthy of all praise! They saw His miracles, His healing power, how He set people free of demonic oppression. They heard His teaching full of authority and truth. They felt His love and acceptance. They did not understand who He really was – the promised Messiah, the Son of God. He had to suffer and die a painful death on the Roman cross. He was buried like a man, but then He rose from out of the tomb and appeared to many. Only then did they begin to believe. His outpoured Spirit opened their eyes further to understand who he was. They spread the good news in obedience to His charge to them. What a glorious time, yet with persecution. Now we are the fruit of those times, in our turn believing because of their Word and His Presence in people today. Praise His Holy Name!
There is joy for those who are forgiven and released from the burden of sin. I will come in power to show My glory to the world I have made. Who will believe in Me then?
My ways are higher than your ways. I see the end from the beginning. I know who will respond to My invitation, My call. Sometimes I bring the invitation even if I know they will say no, so that no man will have an excuse. I display My creation for all to see and ponder. Their choice to reject the Truth opens the door for sin and the works of darkness. Even so they can repent and turn to Me and be healed. Evil flourishes where unbelief is normal and accepted. Societies fail with unbelief. People would rather worship creation than He who is the Creator. Judgment is coming and has come. My Spirit is at work in the hearts of men. He broods over the darkness.
In My eyes I see all that is going on. Do you want to know what I see in you? I see My finished work. I see My Son covering you. I see faithfulness and decisions to press on in My work when other choices might please the demands of your flesh. Others might do more in My kingdom, but that is not the point. Are you faithful and submitted to doing what I ask of you? Fasting, tithing, interceding for others, loving the unlovable and undeserving, giving up your rights before Me, putting others ahead of you in your mind and deed, serving in ways that others are not aware. Yes, can you do things, so no one notices, and you are not aware of their eternal value before Me? Is your decision to be obedient to My Word and Spirit made quickly without hesitation? Is it done without even thinking about it, like Rachel drawing more water out of the well for Abraham’s camels as the slave had made in to a sign for guidance? Was it in her nature to serve and bless others? She was not perfect, as she later joined in the deception of her husband in favoring her chosen son. Yes, My Spirit graced her so that she would do the right thing, but she said yes to My Spirit’s leading.
Can you love as I love you? Yes, with My help. I responded to people’s needs, knowing the Father’s love for the people He created. I didn’t just heal them physically or meet their physical needs without addressing their need for a Savior. Many believed in Me especially after My resurrection. How long could you live without contact with others? How long could you live without My contact? I created man to be with Me and others.
My Word goes forth in power to accomplish what I purpose. I reward those who seek after Me with My Presence. You will see Me at work today in the lives of people. Speak My Word of comfort, love, correction. You are imperfect, but I am perfect. Your heart is willing, but your flesh is weak.
Now is the time of My favor. I do have a plan for you and you are walking in it. Build up and not tear down. Rescue the weak. Speak truth with love. If God is for us who can be against us? Does it matter what you believe? Or Who you believe in? Put your trust in the God Who doesn’t change. Claim His promises as your own. Believe and receive from My hand.
My Name will be glorified in My people as they do My will. Who is he who loves Me? It is he who does My commands and obeys Me. The fear of the Lord is the beginning of wisdom. He honors Me and seeks after Me in all that he does. My Word is precious to him. He digs after the truth. He wants to know Me. He recognizes when I work with him, along side him, through him. O how much more can we accomplish! The people rise up to praise Me! They recall My miracles, My deeds of old. They think of My goodness.
In You I find my strength. Whom have I in heaven but You? You caused me to hunger for You, to seek after You, to read Your Word, to find You. You poured out Your Holy Spirit upon me and gave me joy, peace, love and purpose. You directed my steps in wonderful ways and gave me friends from your body the church. All of these things were gifts from You. All praise be to God and His Son Jesus.
Keep a guard over your heart and mind to keep your thoughts pure before Me. I am a jealous God.
What motivates you to give of yourself to Me and to others? Is it love and gratitude for what I have done and am doing for you? Is it because My Word commands you? Is it My Spirit directing you? Is it responding to the needs of others? All of these answers are right, but the greatest and most important is love. Without love all serving is shallow and empty, self-serving to be noticed, full of hypocrisy. Be at peace and allow Me to give you My love for others. Love never expects or demands others to respond.
Look for Me today in the people you see. Listen for My Spirit and follow His leading. You will be a blessing. Give of yourself. I will cover you and shield you. Guard over your mind with all diligence, for it is the wellspring of life.
Declare My Word in the spiritual realm. Speak it boldly. My Word is truth and life. I am not a liar, I will defend My Word. In all things give Me praise and I will be lifted up. Declare aloud the truth you know. My Spirit will shine in you as a beacon of light in the dark places. There is no other beside Me. I alone am God, the Creator of all that exists.
Many will say on that day, I knew You, but in reality, they only knew of Me and refused to put their faith in My Son. They refused to believe for salvation. They rejected My Lordship over their lives. They will find out too late Who I Am. Wake them up if you can.
Come follow Me and I will fill you with joy. My words to you will bring life and healing. This is My commandment that you love one another as I have loved you. Can you do this for Me? Yes, you can try and I will give you grace to do more than you could do alone. Love is a decision to show love, compassion, sympathy, kindness, slowing down to notice, touching. How do you receive love? Then do so to others.
No man is an island, wanting to be alone always. I did not make him that way. Perhaps he has been hurt deeply and so he is protecting himself from further hurt, but he craves real love to overcome his hurt. He will go insane alone, left to his own thoughts and ways. In him is a hunger for Me, to know Me, to receive My love. My love goes out through My people to the downcast and hurting. People on the street corners begging are working, pleading, acting, receiving, taking their shift. They know how much they will need for the day. They don’t save up, they consume.
I am a sinner who needs a Savior. My pride and lust of the flesh remind me of my weaknesses and imperfections. May Your hand of discipline correct me and bring me back to Your path of righteousness. Cleanse me from my sinfulness. Wash me in Your blood.
When a man sins, he breaks fellowship with people and God. He must be healed and restored. I have provided a way for both in confession. I have already paid the price for the sin, but confession and forgiveness is needed.
The promises of God versus the promises of man. Can there be any doubt which one is more sure to be counted on? Why do we put our hopes in what man says?
My promises seem too good to be true. Do you really understand who I AM? If you did, you would never doubt what I say. Keep seeking after Me and you will find Me. You will become like Me as you agree with My Word. To agree means that you will do what it says in faith and obedience.
In all things give Me praise, even in death. For life springs forth from death, new life. He is weak, but I am strong. I see the end from the beginning. Be at peace.
My plan is unfolding. Each life is precious to Me. Each heart/spirit draws Me to reveal Myself. Woe to the one who rejects Me in unbelief and rebellion. Nations rise and fall, but My will endures. People reap what they sow, except when My mercy and grace intervenes to rescue them from the snares of the enemy. From the beginning My Son would come to save the lost.
This is a day of beginning. I will make all things new. Burdens will be laid down. Rest will come for the weary and troubled.
I am with you. My Spirit will always speak to you and guide you. Even when your mind becomes weak, you will still be able to hear My voice, and even more so. What is the most important thing you can do? Spend time with Me, getting direction and encouragement for the new day. My words are life and true food for your soul. The spiritual dimension of this world is so much more real than what you are experiencing in the natural in your world. But your experiences are shaping your spirit as you trust in Me to help you with your struggles and trials. Together we have overcome this world – you partnering with Me. You are My hands and feet and tongue. Proclaim the truth. Serve My body.
I have made your mind capable of much more than is needed for life. When my Spirit activates and communicated with a willing spirit, all of the universe comes alive to him. How much is wasted by the un-regenerated soul! How much is gained by dying to self and saying yes fully to My will and Spirit! If you knew the outcome and impact of your decisions and actions in the short and long-terms, would you be wise and choose wisely? Better still is just to say yes to My will, giving over and yielding to My will in every significant choice, even covering and committing even the smallest group of choices to Me. You are not a robot or a slave, but a son. I am loving Father.
All that I am is yours. Is that statement from you or Me? How were you crucified so as to live in Me? Were you with Me when I died on the cross? Did you rise from the dead when I rose? Who paid for you to redeem you? Positionally you are in Me and I in you. Do you believe this? Live for Me and die to yourself, to the desires of your flesh and the temptations of this fallen world. Can you do this? Yes, by My grace and your faith in Me.
What is in a name? Is it just a means of identification or is there a glimpse into the soul, into who the person is? In My Word names mean something. My Name means who I AM.
Do not be self-centered, but be otherly, outward looking, aware of the needs of others. Be aware of My Spirit.
You will see the end. Give him encouragement and love. Do unto others as you would have them do unto you. Be at peace but pray.
Rejoice and be glad for the King is coming. Rejoice and be glad for your sins are forgiven. Be not afraid, but trust Me in the timing of events. My will is being worked out and you are a part of it for him.
Give of yourself to others – to family first, then to those I put in your path of life. Do not claim to be used apart from My power and Presence. You have nothing in yourself, but a yielded heart. Set your mind on the things above.
Come and see the newborn King. He took on flesh. He became one of us so that He could die as one of us, but for us. O what a Savior. What an offering of love!
O the depths of love we have in our Savior, willing to put on our flesh, bearing our sins on the cross, freeing us from the bondage of sin, to live with Him in newness of life, even eternally. He who has been forgiven much, loves much in return. Yet we all have a debt we cannot pay for. We all have been given much in Christ, immeasurably more than what we could ever ask or think. Praise His holy Name!
If you could ever see what We have planned for you from the beginning of time, your heart would burst trying to receive it all. That is why you will have an eternity to receive it all. That is why My grace for you is more than sufficient, meeting every need in abundance, for the one submitted to Us.
Unto us a child is born, a King in disguise, the Savior of the world, the Prince of Peace and many other titles. Now the world would be different. Now the people would have no excuse for their life of sin and unbelief. Now a way to the Father would be given. Now a hope of eternal life would be given with the resurrection of the firstborn Son.
In all things give Me praise and thanks. Instead of looking at your faults and weaknesses, look to Me the Author and Finisher of your faith. Find hope in Me. My joy is in My people, especially those who seek after Me. If your earthly children and family can delight you, so can My children bring joy to My heart. What joy and peace can be found in Me for the asking.
Come before Me with singing, joyous praise, thanksgiving and celebration. Do you realize what I have done for you? Do not take for granted My gift, My love, My mercy and grace.
Today is the day of salvation. Everyday is the day of salvation. Believe in Me and receive My gift of salvation and forgiveness of your sins. Give life and you will be blessed. Be patient and humble with people. Do not demand or coerce, mislead. Treat others as you would want to be treated.
I will be glorified in My people, those who are alive and those who have passed from death unto life. Be at peace and rejoice. Your time will come someday too.
Give him honor as a man of prayer and a man who cared about people in need like himself.
Come before Me with praise and thanks for in this I glory in My people. What do you have except what I have graciously provided? My love will carry you.
