Pay attention to My Spirit. Don’t let your soul sink down. Remember the life in your spirit, which comes from My Spirit. The flesh is weak, but My Spirit is strong in you.
Do not be afraid of the future. Trust in Me for I control the future. All the ways of man will fail, especially near the end. Even good men can be tempted to turn from the path that leads to life. Be on your guard to keep focusing your mind on the things above, where I AM.
The word of the Lord came. People need a vision, a goal, guidance and direction. I have given this to My people in My Word. My ways are shown for those to discover. What does God ask of you O man, but to love justice, to show mercy and to live humbly before our God. Love the Lord your God with all of your heart, soul, mind and strength, and to love your neighbor as yourself. Love one another as I have loved you. Believe in My Son and live like He lived. Die to yourself, your fleshly desires, and live to please and obey God. Go and share the good news. Make disciples. What more do you need? If you follow My teaching, you will live for Me and not for yourself. My grace and power will help you do what I will for you and My body. Be a good workman, studying My Word, so that you can share My truth to others.
Be at peace in your heart for I have gone before you and taken care of everything. Trust Me to accomplish My will on the earth. Many people will pray – Thy will be done on earth as it is in heaven. They don’t really think about what they are praying until something happens in their lives. They will call out to Me in their trouble and need. I don’t mind for I desire all men to be dependent upon Me. Sin brings death and need. Obedience to My Word brings life and abundance. Do not put your hope in any man. I might use a man to accomplish My purposes, even an ugly, evil man for a season.
